PostSubject: Darths and Droids    Thu Sep 22, 2011 1:15 am

Well, a friend recently pointed to me to a webcomic called Darths and Droids, which treats Star Wars as a Dungeon and Dragons game, using screenshots as appropriate.

The comic takes place in an alternate universe, where Star Wars does not exist. The players don't know anything at all about Jedi, or Tatooine, or Anakin Skywalker before the game begins. The GM has some sort of storyline and setting details in mind, but not fully detailed. He creates the setting in response to what the players do. If the players make some (not patently ridiculous) assumption, or improvise something in order to explain what they're doing, then the GM adopts it and adds it to the setting.

For example: If Obi-Wan comes up with an explanation for why something as stupid-sounding as laser swords are actually really useful, it's not because Ben (Obi-Wan's player) knows how badass lightsabres are, it's that he's making it up to achieve some immediate goal within the game, and the GM then adds that fact to his game universe

I've found it to be quite entertaning - Given the premise, it's surprisingly well thought out....Frankly, I've enjoyed the plot of this comic better than the prequel trilogy....not that it was a difficult accomplishment.
