Hi all,

Just had an idea for making a starwars retheme of the game. Tell me what you think of the character distribution.


Original Trilogy

Goodside
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Merlin) - Knows Darkside
Luke Skywalker (Percival) - Knows Obi-Wan Kenobi
Generic Good Characters: Princess Leia, Chewabacca, Admiral Ackbar

Darkside
The Emperor (Mordred)- Unknown to Obi-Wan Kenobi
Darth Vader (Morgana) - Deceives Luke Skywalker, appears as Obi-Wan
Boba Fett (Assassin) - Can attempt to assassinate Obi-Wan
Greedo or Jabba the Hutt (Oberon) - Unknown to Evil
Generic Evil Characters: Storm/Scout Troopers

Yoda Token (Lady of the Lake) - Can be used to identify a players allegiance

Additionals:
Lando Calrissian (Lancelot) - Switches Allegiances
Han Solo (Guinevere)- Can Identify Lando Calrissian





Prequel Trilogy

Goodside

Yoda (Merlin) - Knows Evil
Obi-Wan (Percival) - Knows Yoda
Generic Good: Jedi's/Republic Soldiers

Palpatine (Mordred) - Unknown to Yoda
Darth Maul (Morgana)- Deceives Obi-Wan
Assassin (Jango Fett)- Can Attempt to kill Yoda
Count Dooku (Oberon) - Unknown to Evil
Generic Evil - Droids

Anakin Skywalker (Lancelot) - Switches Allegiances
Mace Windu (Guinevere) - Knows Anakin



Let me know what you guys think! Cheers

Fun idea, good work! I was frustrated with Yoda in that he didn't have a clue what the Sith were doing, so I'd give him one of the more "clueless" characters, but that's just a personal preference.

Palpatine: ninja

Yoda: surprise

The Resistance was originally a Star Wars-themed print & play game. Star Wars is literally the original theme. The "Dystopian universe" and Avalon are re-themes.

Uh, nope. Original theme is purely the concept of resistance to an empire.

It's true that a space theme developed for the first deck I had printed, but it wasn't Star Wars. And the original V1 and V2 documents have nothing like that.

I've done several different re-themes of Avalon and they all went over well with my groups. Done Classic Star Wars, Prequel Star Wars (Jedi vs Sith), Avengers, DC JLA and a couple others. It's fun re-themes.

Ah. Star Wars was definitely the first theme I saw for it, but I'm not going to argue with you about the history of your own game. My bad.

Generic Good: Jedi's/Republic Soldiers Rex, Fives, Jar-Jar, Padmé, Kit Fisto, Yoda, Mace Windu...

Palpatine (Mordred) - Unknown to Yoda Anakin
Darth Maul (Morgana)- Deceives Obi-Wan
Oberon - Mother Tarzin unknown to evil

Anakin SkywalkerVentress (Lancelot) - Switches Allegiances
Mace Windu Ahsoka(Guinevere) - Knows AnakinVentress
Let me know what you guys think! Cheers

I think if you include the Clone Wars, the prequel roles make more sense.

Anakin takes center stage as Merlin. Everybody suspected Palpatine of manipulating the senate BUT Anakin, making the Palpatine role more apt. Obi-Wan is closer to Anakin than Yoda.
Ahsoka and Ventress have a better synergy to them than Anakin and Mace...
