They come with a debt equal to their cost, which must be paid. Regular
payments can be made (so a character can get a ship before being able to afford it),
or the whole can be paid in a lump sum. If regular payments are not made, then "thugs"
come to collect the credits owed each time the character is played in an adventure.

Based on Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace, the campaign
starts after Queen Amidala escapes from Naboo, headed for Coruscant. The players are
citizens of or visitors to Naboo. If they are visitors, they have been stranded on planet
by the blockade of the Trade Federation, as no ships have been able to leave Naboo
for well over three months. The long running stand off is wearing thin on both sides
of the dispute.
When the droid armies descended on the planet, no one was ready
for the sheer magnitude of force being brought to bear on the hapless planet. Being
caught almost immediately by surprise, the Naboo Defense Forces were overwhelmed
almost immediately. Citizens and visitors alike were herded into detainment camps,
however those who were quick to react managed to fight their way out of the traps
and quickly hid themselves away while formulating plans for further resistance.
The characters were one such group. They had managed to hide away
within the sewers of the great and ancient city of Theed. They managed to gather
enough weapons and food to survive while in hiding. Once the general population of
Theed had been removed to detainment camps, the resistance found it easier to move
about without calling too much attention to themselves.
Food was less scarce since many homes and apartments were still
well stocked. The group has moved their base of operations from the sewers into the
walled compound of Governor Garzon. The villa, located near the center of the city
of Theed, has many tall spires offering a stunning view of most of the central city
as well as the movements of the Trade Federation's battle droids.
