Unfortunately, the blog post that details this sci-fi hack of Hero Kids has gone to the great blog graveyard in the sky, so the only evidence that I have of its existence is this image and the name...

- Hey, guys. Sorry about that. I took my blog down since I rarely posted to it. I will re-post notes and cards next week. I'm knee-deep in work through the weekend (I'm literally sending this from my HMMWV traveling to training). John D - Thanks for the message on Facebook.Jan 23, 2014
- Justin HallidayOwner+1No apologies needed! I just love that you did it!
Also, where did you get that awesome border artwork?Jan 23, 2014
- Thanks everyone for the nice comments about my Star Wars Hero Kids hack. I've got tons of Star Wars minis that my son, Nathan, loves playing with so I thought this would be a great way to introduce him to gaming.
I created the character cards in Powerpoint using images of the minis grabbed from the WOTC website. The border is a Digital Tablet Handout Graphic from Dave Graffam Models -
For our game I created characters for Obi Wan, Chewbacca, Count Dooku, Commander Rex, and two types of Battle Droids. I had to cheat the Force-using characters a bit using 5 dice to build the hero instead of 4.
We played on a Star Wars minis map.
Nathan had his three heroes - Obi Wan, Chewbacca, and Commander Rex - board the space station to rescue Princess Leia from Count Dooku. I didn't tell him where she was so his heroes had to start searching the station. After a couple of fights with Battle Droids he encountered some mundane droids - Gonk and R5D4. I coaxed him into roleplaying his heroes asking the droids if they knew where the princess was being held captive. This lead him to the Conference Room with the final battle between the heroes and Count Dooku. We both had a great time and more games are planned.
I've uploaded a PDF of the hero cards here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8l5lpugjji7zcaa/Star_Wars_Hero_Kids_Cards.pdf
Here's the Powerpoint file I used if you want to make your own Star Wars hero cards - but I dropped the digital tablet image since it's not fair to share that. It's only $1 from rpgnow.com :
