I enjoy Wizards of the Coast’s Star Wars miniatures game. It’s kind of like a roleplaying game with just the fights. Now, I like playing a character as much as the next person, but there’s something compelling about reducing the experience down to a quick-setup board game. Plus, you need fewer players. I don’t know about you, but I only get a couple nights a month to roleplay and it’s hard getting the whole gang together.
Regardless, I particularly like the “Dark Times” era of Star Wars history. This is the time between Episode III and IV, when the few remaining Jedi are on the run and villainy reigns. Why do I like this so much? Because this is the only time that Jedi aren’t the top dogs. Between Vader’s bounty hunters, the 501st Legion and Mandalorian Jedi hunters, it’s not a good time to be a wielding the old light saber.
For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire. But the Jedi have fallen, and sinister forces control the galaxy . . . the dark times are here.
