One of the most memorable moments in Star Wars is the speeder chase through the Endor forest and I can’t recall how many times I’ve replicated that scene in some way. The thrill of the chase, the excitement of repulsor-mounted combat and the sheer danger presented by speed makes it fit perfectly into a role-playing module. We all know that if Luke fails, then the Empire will learn of the Rebel plan. When he loses Leia, it creates an additional plot point. It’s a good scene because it sets the price of failure whilst at the same time creating more scenes in the story.
In this article, I explore how to set up a good chase scene and also offer a random table of chase complications for your table.
