So, started my new campaign, it is six months after The Battle Of Hoth. Han Solo is encased in Carbonite. Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia Organa, Baron Lando Calrissian, and Chewbacca are all missing. The Rebellion is starting to have severe problems with equipment and maintenance.

The game started with the group rescuing Rebels from an Imperial POW Camp that was being turned into a Mass Disintegration Camp that was going to mulch the prisoners up for reactor fuel for the Imperial Navy. They got most of the prisoners out, when they got back to base to see... This:

Luke Skywalker appears on the holo-braodcast, wearing a black flightsuit with a open set of dark brown robes over it, munching casually on some green berry-like foodstuff. He finishes the last one, and carefully puts the bag away and nods his head as if to start recording when it already had.

“I am Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight. Over the past six months, numerous truths were brought forward to me and associates of mine that will help explain the situation of Known Space as it is. The first, and foremost of these is the simple fact that the Emperor, Palpatine, is a Sith Master who is more properly named Darth Sidious.

“Few people in the galaxy remember truly what the Sith are, but they stand for all that is dark and corrupt in the universe. In fact, utilizing Sith Sorcery, extensive drugs, and cybernetic manipulation, he has made one of his more fearsome weapons from that of my father, Clone Wars hero and one of the few surviving members of the Jedi Council, Anakin Skywalker. He moulded a public figure for this horribly trapped Jedi Master and corrupted him into a force known to the universe, wrongly, as Darth Vader.

“However, with extensive work, I have been able to remove many of those aspects away from him, returning Jedi Master Anakin Skywalker to himself, and once more the Jedi Council is starting to attempt to bring about the Jedi role of being guardians of peace when the universe is once again able to stabilize into the stability of the Republic, which the Empire has failed to do since its creation over two decades ago.

“As such, we are declaring the creation of the Jedi Protectorate.

“We now claim the area previously known as Hutt Space as Protectorate space. Where we will bring about responsible government that is not in the hands of the Hutt Cartels and their corrupt ways. We renounce any form of slavery in that area, and, with the assistance of our Mandalorian allies, we will free all slaves. This will include the slavery that the Republic instituted in its last days with the creation of the Clonetroopers that made up The Grand Army And Navy Of The Republic.”

The camera zooms back, showing a trio of Mandalorians in their traditional armor, dripping in a variety of weapons ranging from primitive knives of raw steel all the way to the latest in longarm blaster technology. One, without a rangefinder on her helmet but with a bulky rocket pack on her back is in orange armor. The middle is wearing heavily worn and scratched red accented armor on a dark green base, and has more weapons than the others attached to his armor. The last has a hefty, but snub nosed repeating blaster in his arms, and is wearing predominantly black armor with gold accents. Each also wears upon their belt a lightsaber. The scene is obviously now at some ancient temple, whose massive doors are slowly grinding up and down on heavily abused machinery.

Luke Skywalker continues as a blue glow starts to come forth from the entranceway, “For those beings living in the Protectorate in honest, honorable ways, you are welcome to stay, and enjoy the new prosperity that a proper government will bring.

“For those members that have corrupted the governments and subjected the mass populous to terror, theft, and worse…”

Luke Skywalker stands aside, and motions to the form inside the building as the entrance finally opens fully. Clad in mostly black, but with some obviously modified and unpainted equipment added onto his suit, Darth Vader, Dark Lord Of The Sith, or more correctly Jedi Councilmember Anakin Skywalker steps forward, an ignited blue lightsaber in his hand, and he speaks in his massive baritone voice, “Justice comes for you.”

With that, Master Skywalker’s free hand comes from behind his back, and the levitating disembodied head of Jabba The Hutt hovers into view of the holo-recording.

Luke Skywalker once again takes center stage, “The Light Side of the Force is once more being returned to the people of the galaxy. The Protectorate will support the common peoples of the worlds. There will be peace in our time, and the Jedi with their allies and friends will bring it about.”

The holo ends.

Is there any significance to the stuff Luke was eating?

If there is, I'm missing it. Maybe like an allusion to drinking kool aid; like Luke is setting himself up like a David Koresh style cult leader?

Actually, this was because someone found some Star Wars branded green grapes, was a reference for them.

I swear, if I find Star Wars: The Flamethrower... Laughing
