Casablanca Planet?

11 posts in this topic

I'm planning a sequence in our campaign that's based around a cantina in a setting like that from the film Casablanca, and I'm trying to figure out what planet would fit the bill.

 

Here's what I'm looking for:

  • a waystation for refugees fleeing the Empire trying to reach the Outer Rim
  • somewhere the Empire doesn't have total control, but could land a garrison to harass people
  • somewhere you could have a large expatriate community of people who have fled the Imperial occupation of their homeworld or culture
  • possibly at an intersection of major hyperspace lanes
  • not too central but not too far in the Outer Rim either

Any ideas?

 

I'm thinking of something in the Mid Rim, where people could get stranded on their way away from the Empire.

 

Possibly Allanteen, or Harrin, or Kinyen.

 

Thanks!

The galaxy is a huge space, with plenty of room to make up a planet.

What, make up a planet!? You can't mess Canon like that!! If it is not in the published materials, you can't add anything to the game like that!! What Jedi was born on the planet 2,000 years ago, how many Jedi did the Mandalorians kill there 1,000 years ago. What battles from the Clone Wars were fought there?? When does the Anti-force organic ship Yuvan Vong things invade this planet and terraform it??? There are just way too many consequences and thinks to think about for someone to just arbitrarily and indiscriminately add planets. What about the gravitational effects on the Galactic Rotation.

These things have consequences you have not and can not plan on!!! How will it fit into Episode 7!?

:)

Go with Korbin in the outer rim. Awesome little out of the way planet. True anarchy there. Or you could always just make up a planet...

There are plenty of worlds (about 150) in Bothan Space that might qualify. There are thousands of worlds in Hutt Space.

 

These are both great options, as the Empire has unofficial agreements to be 'hands-off' in both regions, but must still maintain a presence there (and would likely flex its muscles every now and again to remind both parties who the real boss is). Both would also offer great opportunities for EotE-type work: Bothans trade in information, and you can't swing a mynock without hitting a criminal enterprise in Hutt space.

Great idea! 

 

I am open to creating my own planet for the purpose, but this is the kind of info I was hoping for. Either Bothan or Hutt Space would make a great location for this kind of setting. Thanks!

What about the Wheel? Sounds like it'd fit the bill for me. It's also in Beyond the Rim.

 

I've been thinking about that, because it would definitely fit the bill in a lot of ways.

 

I think I may go a different route and create a planet for it, just because I'm planning to run Beyond the Rim in a different part of the campaign, so I'd like the section with the "Casablanca planet" to be a different location.

 

Still, though, it does fit a lot of what I need ....
