Obligations to the Hutts can bring interesting storylines. This one includes a visit to a mine to help change over ownership to the Hutt.

Highlights of the adventure was the Droid Rights movement, which worked well with one of my player characters, being a droid.

Episodes of the adventure:

  • Introduction (5 pages) – the introduction could have been split into background and meeting the Hutt
  • Oridium Mining (19 pages) – this could have used episodes to break it up a little

Set on Tatooine, you get to meet the following characters in the adventure (Rival unless specified):

  • Bargos the Hutt (background only)

Concluding Thoughts

This adventure show cases the downside of Obligation, having to carry out an assignment just because you owe someone. This can then be taken up by the Hutts to get characters involved even though they might not have had any Hutt involvement in the past. Never underestimate how the transferring of obligation will affect the characters, as it will make them think twice in the future as to just who they have an obligation too.

The big set piece for this is the mining outpost, this can be reused in many places, as it has a great layout. On top of this it provides a good groundwork if you want to incorporate a droid rebellion somewhere else and need a guideline, this is a good example.

I would easily be able to reuse the material in this book.
