    Well we knew that already. 20 years of game time isn't 20 years of RL time. They could decide to start the 20 year later game where they try to take over the Peace Moon next week if they wanted to.
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    Sounds like an excellent lead-in to the starter adventure in the back of the Call of Cthulhu core book. Especially since "Librarian" is a pretty decent character archetype in that game...

    So long as I don't need to own any rules, I'm game to try. I expect to either be mad by the end of the first post, or last the entire game without losing san. Only to be locked up because my version of the story is far too different from my slightly mad companions.

    Yeah, I'd sa that sounds like a rather standard start for a Chtulhu campaign... Though I was expecting a Mario joke on the plumber intro.

    Is a GM allowed to decide when a character goes into labor, though? (and would s/he be allowed to get a character pregnant?)

    As a GM or player, I would totally be for GMs deciding when players go into labor. I would leave getting preggers up to the players though. Unless the player tries to explain how they are involved in reproductive processes. Then they become pregnant no matter the sex of their character.

    The GM wasn't involved in making Padmé pregnant.

    So they are keeping with the movies in having twins be born. Interesting. Wonder why the GM chose twins or did he just randomly roll to decide that.

    Getting disemboweled may very well explain why Padme does not live until the next episode. At the very least, it's better than the "she lost her will to live" from the movie.

    Yeah, apparently in this futuristic era they have developed hyperspace travel, complex cybernetic systems, and the ability to destroy planets with a single blast, but they havent managed life support that works on depressed people.

    Heck, they haven't developed either obgyn's or any other type of pre-natal care. My first thought on the whole "oh no, Padme's gonna have trouble giving birth" was wondering why they aren't having some sort of C-section or something.

    Too be fair, we cant be entirely certain of whats going on down there with robo doc. Could be a normal current childbirth method, could be some funky advanced technique that inflates the birth canal to 3x its usual size in this day and age to cause an easy birth. We just know that it let an apparently dying woman give birth to twins, and that depression is a fatal illness in star wars.

    In the novels, "depression" isn't the main cause of Padme's death- unrecognized damage was, from Anakin's Force Choke.

    Sadly, the majority of the world has not and probably will not ever read the novelization. GL's explanation is the only "canonical"'one for them, terrible and unsatisfying though that may be.
