SWS: Apocalypse World: Burned Over

Something’s wrong with the galaxy and I don’t know what it is.

It used to be better, of course, it did, or so they say. In the golden age of legend, with the Republic and the Jedi Order, when there was enough to eat and enough hope, when people could lift their eyes and see beyond the horizon, beyond the blazing light of two suns. Children were born happy and some even grew up rich.

Now? Wretched, baking desert. Sand people, Hutt crimelords, no account smugglers. And to make it even worse, kriffing pod racing.

And you, who are you? This is what we’ve got, yes. What are you going to make of it?

I’m running a five-shot of Apocalypse World: Burned Over (v2021). A reskin to Star Wars, set on Tatooine, but trust, friend. It’ll be just as harsh as AW can get, so be warned.

One seat is being held in reserve for Cisco.

This game is part of the ongoing Star Wars Saturdays series. The time setting is after the end of Episode VI of the Star Wars movie series (that’s Return of the Jedi ) when the Empire is falling and the Alliance to Restore the Republic is taking control in fits and starts.
