10th anniversary of ‘The Phantom Menace’

Posted on May 19, 2009 by


Folks, want to feel old?  Today (May 19th) marks the 10th anniversary of the release of  The Phantom Menace in theatres accross the United States.  Fans waited for 16 years to see a new SW movie in the theatres.  For some, it would be the first time they saw a SW film projected unto the silver screen. 

Mesa gonna ruin yousa stupid movie!

Mesa gonna ruin yousa stupid movie!

Folks, let’s celebrate this anniversary tonight with a little role playing.  I am inclined to believe that most fans of gaming are also fans of SW, so in honor of these movies take out your dice and play.  Whether you play d6 or d20, who cares?  Play Star Wars tonight.

Play SW tonight, and for the love of all that is holy, kill as many Gungans as you can.  Slaughter them.  Torture them Jack Bauer style.  SW GM’s everwhere, make a one shot where a Gungan is the bad guy, and make him despicable.  So much so that the only solution is to destroy him.  In fact, house-rule criticals on any roll 11-20.

That’ll teach those guys to ruin a movie.


SW Plot hook of the day:  A Gungan slaver has taken up residence on a small moon in the Crap’Ass system.  You’ve got the coordinates, and he happens to have your sister, so what are you waiting for?  Go invade his camp and take him out!
