Star Wars Fate Accelerated
Hi! A friend and I have been talking about maybe running a Star Wars game using Fate Accelerated, but then I got the idea of maybe playing in one instead. We're looking to stick with FAE as it's quick and simple, so no need to really tweak dials or switches.

As for setting, we're looking for basically anything that doesn't involve the Yuuzhan Vong or Legacy (though the New Jedi Order is really okay, I mean the videogames did it without bringing in the invasion). The other player's only solid request is to play a twi'lek, while I have some character ideas for whatever other era of play a GM is into. Neither of us is too worked up about stepping on whatever passes for canon, either. That said, I have some ideas to pitch here and am perfectly willing to take ideas a GM has.

Old Republic: The first generation of Jedi trying to rebuild the Order in the wake of the Dark Wars.

Clone Wars: Rogue Jedi fighting the Sith menace on their own terms, while trying to stay ahead of the Jedi Order as well.

Rebellion Era: Freighter crew running missions for the Rebellion. Actually we'd be happy just recycling old West End Games adventures for this era. I hear a bunch of them are really good, and I've never seen any in action.

NJO: Privateers, Republic mercenaries, or Jedi fighting against Imperial Remnants and Dark Side cults.

Also not set on any given power level, ranging from "classic movies" where characters are basically just people in epic circumstances up through "Force Unleashed" where characters do truly crazy things and are opposed by forces that still make the heroes the underdogs.

Basically looking to work out a Star Wars FAE game with an interested GM. Another player or two are welcome, too. :D

I'm 100% interested in this as a possible player, for sure! I've been running my own FATE game recently, and I appreciate the openness of it. I'd love to see how it works from a player's perspective!

I have no preference for an era or theme.

Bumping this post. Still looking for a GM. And look, now the game has three players interested! :D

Any Fate GMs looking for space-based pew pew action?

In reply to Nintaku (msg # 3):

I've run some FAE in the past, and I'll admit I'm a bit rusty but it's not like there's a lot of crunch and whatnot for me to get tangled in otherwise! Besides that point, I'm a huge Star Wars fan and devour basically anything I can get. I can see the cinematic and quick nature of FAE working well for something inside the wonderful universe of Star Wars. As for the setting, I have always loved the plucky resolve of the Rebel Alliance doing their best to stay ahead of the powerful heel of the Empire. I have some old WEG books, and the new FFG Age of Rebellion books so I'm sure there's plenty that I can pull from those (and my imagination) to make some good adventures!

So, if you're willing to put up with me re-learning FAE and getting into the right set of mind to GM it, I'd be more than willing to run some sweet Star Wars action!

I'm interested in playing in this. I seem to be on a FAE kick (I want to give it a proper try out) and I'd like another Star Wars game for an odd character.

I would be interested in playing in a Star Wars adventure.  I don't have the FATE books nor am I familiar with the system but I'm more that willing to learn.

To all of those that were interested in this thread, here you go! I've created a simple way of looking at character creation and the basics of the system, with links to the much more comprehensive Fate SRD. Enjoy and thanks for reading!
