I haven’t been smart enough to join the Starforged play-testing and now I am impatient to get the rules and try the game! As a diversion, I started a short Star-Wars-inspired Ironsworn game. I also thought that it would be fun to create some rough comic-like illustrations for this story.

The Rodian merchant Nia is the owner of the Stingy Eagle cargo ship and Grig is the pilot of the ship. They are both rebels and use the cover of Nia’s trading to infiltrate Empire-controlled planets and collect information for the rebels based on planet [Oracle] Abon.
The Stingy Eagle flies towards planet [Oracle] Essus where [Oracle: An Innocent is Accused] the Empire has imprisoned governor Shona. She is charged of collaborating with the rebellion, but she never did.
The leaders of the Rebellion asked Nia to investigate the situation on Essus and possibly find Shona and take her to Abon.
Dangerous task: Find Shona and take her to Abon – Progress:0
As soon as the Stingy Eagle reaches Essus, Nia and Grig visit the spaceport tavern, hoping to learn some details about the situation.
