    Quick nitpick but I thought Sally was Ben's sister, not the GM's?

    "I wander off into the desert"

    This is the best possible character epilogue after finishing a campaign, as far as I'm concerned.

    It is how the second dune book ends. I think, cannonically, the character who did that got eaten by a sandworm.

    This scene in the film, where Beru and Lars look into the sunset together and the original theme music plays, actually brought tears to my eyes. One of the two scenes in the entire prequel trilogy that meant a damn to me. See if you can work out which was the other scene....

    I'd assume no one is even aware of it but The Dark Eye has at least the Debt (optional amount) disadvantage... you can pick your backstory for it, of course.

    Yes, I'm aware of it. I knew a German guy who really hated it so much he insisted on apologizing for it on behalf of his country.

    Since I didn't actually get to play it, however, I don't know how justified such a depiction was.

    Very close. It's the sequence where the mask is slowly lowered onto Vader's face. The helmet is then delicately placed in position and there's that moment of perfect silence before you hear Vader breathe for the first time.

    That tingled me in various places. The rest of the prequel trilogy? Shove it.

    Well... I think it's slightly more complicated... more like... midochlorians can help you sense and manipualte some weird field like gravity or a magnetic field... eeexcept when you shoot lightning bolts from your fingers.

    Das German is tricky that way.

    Hm... I'm only familiar with the rather new 4.1 edition of the system which id good if you don't mind poor battle mechanics (well, not that poor but... not really fun) and like good roleplaying options and magic that's not just "I am a mage. I blow off your head." Ot's not really battle oriented, or it is inferior to D&D when it comes to battle mechanics but I play it for the sake of plot and interaction and 4.1 is nice when it comes to this, imo.

    More like Lucas was tired and drunk when writing the explanation for the Force and somehow got this: "No, it can't be religious! Or Magic! It's got to be scienc...ah, screw it ! This is good enough..."

    The GM of Darths & Droids is an amazing GM. This has never been in question.

    The whole point is that he's the opposite of the GM from DM of the Rings.

    I am guessing the plan went off the rails almost intentionally this time, as he and Annie seem to have been coordinating from almost as soon as she came back into the game. Or at least since Anakin whacked Dooku.

    He still would have rather done the Naboo stuff though, I'm sure.

    I took it as his outline for the story at the start of the campaign. He needed those details in order to make the story work. Each time they went off the rails, he would have his back story handy to work with to find a way to make the events happen anyways.
