All the local conventions are over for the season. Halloween gives you another opportunity, but does it really showcase what you want? What the heck am I talking about? Dressing up in your custom made Star Wars costume of course. You spent time on it and you need another reason to pull it out and show it off. Well if you're going to play a character you might as well play a game while you do it. So we built a free to play murder mystery dinner with a Star Wars theme.
On the Outer Rim of the galaxy sits the lonely ice planet of Hoth. 8 seeming strangers have gathered in the only Cantina on the planet for one reason or another. Where fate intervened to bring them together, dasterdly deeds have locked them in until the mystery is solved. Someone is dead and the murderer is still inside the Cantina. Can you figure it out or will you accuse the wrong person and let the killer escape?
Our game Killer at the Cantina features 8 playable gender neutral characters
Alphard Crescentdown - The Cantina Owner
Cocori Lown - Jedi Knight
Chines Suntraveler - Force Sensitive Human
Crux Mofario - Droid Manufacturer
Rana Desertdream - Hutt Cartel Beast Master
Mistat Windtrooper - Freighter Pilot
Kemm Darkfire - Bounty Hunter
Nithala Cometblast - Hoth's Ambassador
One of the problems with a lot of murder mystery dinner parties is that they assign gender roles and you are either restricted on who to invite or you have to find people willing to play opposite genders. With the Star Wars style naming the player characters remain gender neutral so they can be played by either men or women with ease. This way you can invite exactly who you want to your party without any issues and re-assign roles if people can't make it with ease. If more people want to show up to play you can always have background characters lurking about in the Cantina, but the game is set with 8 required player characters (you + 7 of your best Star Wars friends).

- The game is currently in need of revision. The link is left here for those who would like to look through it and play. It made sense to me at the time of writing, but may present some people with questions on plot-holes as it is my very first murder mystery game. If you would like to revise the game for us to upload here to share with other folks please get in touch. It is unlikely given my current work load I will have time to revise the game unfortunately.
