Welcome to "Planet Hoppers," a new feature on the Star Wars Roleplaying Game website. Each month, we'll bring you a set of articles on a particular world in the Star Wars galaxy that a Gamemaster can use separately or as a linked series of events.
This month, don't read "Planet Hoppers" alone, because we've got a ghost story -- a spooky visit to the Sith tombworld of Korriban. Be sure to check back each week for a new installment. And don't forget, the comlink is coming from inside the ship!
Part 1: Haunted Hideout
In which a pirate captain mistakes a dead world saturated in the Dark Side for the perfect place to lay low.
Part 2: Valley of Darkness
In which pirate captain Felyood does a little tomb raiding among the crypts of the Sith Lords.
Part 3: The Dark Lord's Heart
In which a treasure-hunting pirate finds a deadly artifact that changes his life forever.
Part 4: The Sith Shall Rise Again
In which a shipwrecked crew try to save themselves and the galaxy from the awakening Sith.
Part 5: Sole Survivor
In which an unfortunate treasure hunter learns what happens to those left behind on Korriban.
