    Question The Old Republic Era - Looking for Adventure ideas

    I'm just starting a SWd20 campaign and we've decided to play in what I'm calling "The Old Republic" era - aka the Tales of the Jedi era from the Dark Horse comics.

    One of my major stumbling blocks is that names, not so much planets as flavor names like corporations, companies, organizations, etc are a bit light. I've got the D6 companion book from WEG and have a bunch of stuff from the web. Anything else along these lines would help.

    We've got characters rolled up and I've been looking around for a canned adventure to start things off until I develop a good longer range campaign idea. Unfortunately most of what I've found is targetted toward characters 4th to 6th level. Does anyone know where I might find a few adventures for starting (1-2L) characters?

    Thanks,

    The adventure in the CORE Rulebook could be easily modified to this era, just change the names of the NPCs and the timeline. It is geared for 1-2 lvl characters. As for adventure ideas, here is how I am starting my campaign.

    The heroes spot at at floating city to get repairs on their ship they are riding in (all 3 pcs are Jedi). As they stay there people dissappear and they investigate it, only to find a hidden slave camp below on the surface, which they must thwart (ala Indy and the Temple of Doom.) The slave runners will be low level thugs, easy to take out. As for other adventures, I am still working in that myself.

    You might look into getting the Criminal Organizations book from WEG also look for the Han Solo in the Corperate Sector. these should give you company names. there is also in issue 3 of SW gamer several Companies.
