Here is the campaign idea I am running and the players love it!:
It start there: the player wake up in a lab attached to a computer and they don't remember how they got there. The lab in invaded by tusken raider and they have to get out but can't get any info from the damaged computers…When they get out, they are on tatooine in the desert.
Link between player: Three years ago, all the players were in the Lounge Bar on Nar Shaddaa, a bar owned by Guy Papistolli, for different reason. There was around 15 persons in the bar when an armed men entered and throwed a Thermal detonator, almost everyone hid from it except 4 poor guys that didn’t had a chance. The bar is the base of operation of the Distpacher. So after looking at the holocam, they were able to identify everyone on the tape and started to eliminated/abduct them because they might have been see something they were not supposed to: a new weapon prototype. As of today, only 3 persons remain (+ the 5 Players):
Bert Blowson, farmer on Dantooine
Gwaine Bolg, Waitress at The Bampa Express on Bellassa
Malik Spicer, a young scout that works for Bulk Corp, located on Ryloth.
During their captivity, the PC were injected of a special drug that have them forget things, that’s why they will not remember everything. They discover if they do a brain scan that they have nano robots on certain parts of their brain.
Player 1: Was a member the Dispatcher, a mercenary group based in Agamar, agricultural planet (they have a fortress there). He never saw the leader, only his supervisor named Mack Astarac. Their group identification is
The Dispatcher are known in the outerrim and feared.

He hid a datadisk in his ship for himself to go see TG on Esseles, good friend of his. What he hides was a data disk containing the weapon design that he stole on a dead guy after the explosion.
Player 4: was part of Rebellion, he was at the bar to meet Jandar Horn, rebel leader to give some info about the imperials when the accident happened. It was the data disk containing that player 3 took. He doesn’t remember until they retrieve the Data disk on Esseles.
