First off, the rules are fairly simple. And I really only need about an hour to get everything figured out and then I'd be good to go.
That being said, I kinda want to make the first star wars game fucking epic.
The list of things I want to do are as follows:
- Prep sound effects from SW, including the opening theme for the beginning of the adventure!
- Go and grab either some actual minis, or SW action figures.
- Take all the pre gens from the first book, print them out and put them in envelopes. Everyone picks an envelope. (while I love the idea of having the players create characters, I think I'd wind up with 6 jedi).
The thing that crossed my mind this afternoon was "There is no reason not to be prepared. Actually! You don't even need to prepare!"
I don't need to read and learn the rules. I don't need to run the first adventure in the d6 book. I can probably make up an adventure on the spot. I could use Whitestar or Mini6 no problem! I don't need to do any world building, cuz star wars!
I have to stop being hesitant about things. An opportunity comes up to play, play! I mean if it was a fantasy game, I could grab something and run an adventure in about 5 mins of prep. So why not a star wars sci fi game?
