SWS: HyperspaceD6 (Saturdays in January)

The New Republic’s forces are closing in on Imperial Warlord Zsinj. Zsinj’s Empire is falling apart day by day, but the despot is determined to hold on for as long as he can… and punish those who pry his grasp loose from this piece of the galaxy!

And who are you caught in this maelstrom? You’re a team of New Republic troubleshooters with cover identities sent on missions deep in enemy territory to try and dismantle Warlord Zsinj’s Empire bit by bit.

What motivates you to such dangerous adventure? What has Zsinj’s Imperial forces done that cries out for vengeance by you and your allies? Let’s play and find out.

For this series, we’ll be using HyperspaceD6 , a stripped-down version of the original West End Games d6 system. I’ve also further hacked the game so all rolls are player-facing and replaced the wounds system with conditions from Lady Blackbird.

I am saving a seat for Dave Walker.

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.

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).
