SWS: Dust Bowl Galaxy (Saturday mornings in August)

You are in a tin can with half a dozen other scoundrels and there is literally nothing outside for light-years.

You are tumbling through a bitter sector that used to have a lot more people. You are going where many others have gone before. The trick is surviving to come back.

Dust Bowl Galaxy is a space western game of exploration, outlaws, and frontier survival.

It is a rules-light low-prep game where you build your starship out of spare parts, crew it with custom-made aliens, and go explore the galaxy one randomly (or not so randomly) generated sector at a time. When you blow something up, you weld the leftovers onto your ship, call them upgrades and keep on truckin’.

I’m saving a seat for Cisco for this series.

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. If you’ve seen The Mandalorian TV show, that’s a good inspiration for what’s happening in our setting.

Characters and settings created in this miniseries will exist in the SWS canon for future miniseries and added to our wiki (https://starwarssaturdays.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page).
