I think a lot of us are very much on the same page about the kind of planet
we're talking about here.
I agree with the setting, between ROTS & ANH, but closer to ANH. We could have
stormtroopers and a few older clone types thrown in.
Here are my thoughts -
Just riffing here, but the planet itself is like Tatooine (not in terms of geography), but in the
sense that it's an out of the way place that is home to a lot of criminal activity.
So an Imperial garrison was recently established to stem the rampant illegal activity.
But, meanwhile, a proto-Rebel cell had already set up shop there, running guns &
equipment for the fledgling Alliance.
This way, we can have Imperials, rebels, criminals, etc. We have Imperial bases, cantinas,
shops, palace for the local crimelord, a rebel hideout, hangar bays, whatever....
And the town/spaceport can be on the edge of a jungle or woods, so we can add some texture and
We should have a contest to name the planet, everyone can submit, say, up to three entries and
everyone votes on them.
I also like the "raffle" idea, but I think we should definitely cap participation at, say, $30. Don't want
anyone to be able to "buy" the victory by donating absurd amounts of money, especially since we're
not all in the same boat financially.
