This game is part of the ongoing Star Wars Saturdays series. The time setting is Episode VI of the Star Wars movie series (that’s Return of the Jedi) when the Empire was in control, Jedi were few and hunted, and the rebellion was growing in fits and starts.
Characters and settings created in this miniseries will exist in the SWS canon for future miniseries.
We will be using the X-Card as well as Roses and Thorns after each session.
