I just want to share. There are no questions here or anything like that. I’m just super excited to be running a game again. So I think I’ll just keep this thread as a sort of down and dirty journal. (If it should be in another forum, feel free to move it.)
We have played five sessions so far. Our schedule is two Friday nights, then a Friday night off. Repeat. So, not as frequent as every Friday, but more frequent than every other.
Session 1. New Year’s Eve. My sole player had made a character awhile back for a campaign that never kicked off. (Darn you, coronas!). He was hanging out with me at my place. He had a character, but he had not played before, so we sat down so I could show him the dice basics using a couple hypothetical situations.
That turned into several hours and an actual, cohesive scene and I gave him some XPs. We decided to play again the following Friday night even if it was just going to be a solo game.
His character is Glocknar Spleetor, a Gotal scientist who was working for the Empire when he began to discover he was Force-sensitive. He split and now he’s on a journey to learn more. Engineer (Scientist, Force-Sensitive Emergent)
During the session, he broke into an Imperial-guarded university research facility to steal research on midichlorians.
The highlight of the session: two guards discover him in a lab collecting datapads. Glocknar tries a Deception check on them. It fails, but he rolls six Advantages! The guards demand he goes with them to see the security captain, but they allow him to keep all the datapads and didn’t notice the blaster in his hand underneath the stack of stolen datapads.
He does manage to escape the facility after somehow shooting his way out and stealing a speeder bike.
