SWS: Swoop Gangs (five Saturdays in Oct)


Please note that I am playtesting some new “front business” mechanics in this series and would like to have feedback on these mechanics.

Live to Ride, Ride to Live!

Play Outlaw Swoop Bikers in a Star Wars universe reeling from the last days of the Galactic Empire.

Your swoop gang is the absolute Best of the Worst.

  • Commit crimes against the Empire
  • Maintain your front business to keep the heat off your illegal activities
  • Help the downtrodden
  • Hand out some good old-fashioned duracrete justice.
  • Go toe-to-toe with your Rival Gang.

Be cool, and when cool won’t cut it, be karking awesome !
