a Star Wars thought

If you were to ask whiny teenage Luke Skywalker, he would tell you that Tantooine was the most boring place in the galaxy. This is a planet where you keep a blaster rifle in your speeder because homicidal bantha-riders might try to brain you with a pointy metal stick, where mysterious midgets steal droids and drive around in megatanks, where giant slugs are galactic crimelords, where weirdo space wizards live just down the road, where a dude at a bar can be shot in the fucking face but everyone just turns back to their drink.

For my new campaign, I want Luke to be right.

    It's akin to the wild west. Sure there's a lot of danger and action..if you're a gunfighter, outlaw, sherrif, etc.

    If you're a farmhand it IS pretty boring.

    The movie's about Luke's transition from farmhand to gunslinger more or less.

  2. Why wouldn't Luke be right? that IS Tattooine!

  3. I want him to be right that Tantooine, with all its bizarre dangers, really is boring compared to the rest of the galaxy.
