Wizards of the Coast’s Star Wars license expires in May, and their web site is going away in August, so they’re posting as much of their unpublished content as possible to the web. There’s so much, in fact, that I can’t include it all in one round up — look for another edition later this month.
At the same time, things have gotten epic at the Order 66 podcast, which just released its supersized 100th episode, Saga-Edition.com’s released a new species and feat for the game, and I’ve added a write-up on the Ghost Walk Cluster to my campaign wiki.

- Scenario: 25 to Rescue: From the encounter text: “In the midst of the Clone Wars, Separatist invaders lay siege to the planet Christophsis, pounding Republic defenders throughout the planet’s crystalline cities. During the fighting, clone forces learn that the enemy has captured 25 technicians and other civilians. In a hastily arranged rescue mission, nearby heroes must rush to save as many prisoners as possible before a starship arrives to transport them offworld.”
