Episode 186: The Yellow Planet Black Cloak Blues

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

The GM here is setting up all this back story so that Darth Maul can be an ongoing thorn in the sides of the PCs. He's a carefully crafted character who will no doubt return many times over the course of years of campaigning to come.

With such a great character, who would want to see him not return in later adventures?
