The cast for the campaign is as follows:

GEGG WARS contains examples of:

  • Acting for Two: Sam, as the Game Master, plays dozens of different NPCs with a variety of voices.
  • Ace Pilot: Pash.
  • Action Girl: Oskara.
  • Aerith and Bob: The NPCs that Sam creates have much more "normal" names (eg. Jimmy, Steve, Brian, Matt) than the established characters (eg. Pash, Oskara)
  • The Alcoholic: Lowhhrick.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Teemo and Louie start off speaking in their native languages, but change to English later.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Freddie says this about Pash; "He's an equal opportunity smuggler, if you know what I'm sayin'."
  • Ascended Extra: Matt the Battle Droid, Louie the Jawa, and CNO-BO/Richard/Tracey start off as random NPCs who end up tagging along with the main characters.
  • Berserk Button: Do not call Louie and his gang small.
  • BFG: Oskara is very proud of her big gun.
  • Big Bad: There are multiple characters that could qualify - Teemo the Hutt, Moff Gilroy, and Trask.
  • The Big Guy: Lowhhrick and Oskara both fill this role.
  • Butt-Monkey: Pash is this because of Freddie's terrible luck at rolling.
  • The Cast Show Off: Sam gets to showcase his amazing voice range.
  • Central Theme: Sam jokes that the theme of the campaign is irresponsible water usage.
  • Co-Dragons: Teemo the Hutt and Filonious the bounty hunter.
  • Cool Starship: The Krayt Fang.
  • Cute Machines: Matt and CNO-BO.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Henry the giant she-squid.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Sam and Freddie believe that Pash was kicked out of the Imperial Academy because his handsomeness distracted his professors. Also, Pash takes a moment to check out some Mon Calamari ballet dancers.
  • Dumb Muscle: Both Lowhhrick and Oskara are strong, but not too bright.
  • Epic Fail: Pash's plans tend to become these.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: All of the main characters could count.
  • Having a Gay Old Time: Sometimes people (usually Sam) say something that doesn't sound exactly right...
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Matt almost does this unknowingly.
  • The Leader: Pash tries to be a leader. He's not so good at it.
  • Loveable Rogue: Pash.
  • Loyal Animal Companion:
    • Margaret the Fish to 41-VEX.
    • Athena the Frog to both Matt and 41-VEX.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Sam, Freddie and Steve all mention how good looking Pash is. Apparently he's even more handsome soaking wet.
  • Naughty Tentacles: A couple of hentai jokes are made while Pash is wrapped up in Henry's tentacles.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Louie and his gang are small, but they can cause a lot of damage.
  • Running Gag:
    • "ROGER, ROGER!"
    • “Ciao!” whenever Oskara’s Vespa speeder bike is brought up.
    • Oskara’s obsession with her big gun, and 41-VEX’s obsession with rectal exams.
  • Ship Tease: Weirdly enough, the only "couples" that get any ship tease are 41-VEX/CNO-BO (two droids) and Margaret/Athena (a fish and a frog).
  • Shout-Out:
    • Many of the NPCs names are references to people from the Rebels cast and crew.
    • Sam makes many references to The Karate Kid, especially in Episode II.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Oskara is the only female player character. However, there is another character sheet for a character named Sasha, who is not used.
  • Squick: 41-VEX's obsession with rectal exams.
  • Stock Scream: Sam mentions one of the Stormtroopers doing the Wilhelm scream, and all of the players imitate it.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Oskara and 41-VEX.
  • Take That!:
  • Those Two Guys:
    • Mathus and Lowhhrick kind of have this dynamic, with Sam calling them "The Murder Twins" at one point.
    • Out-of-universe, Sam and Freddie are this.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Pash seems to be this though he ends up surviving.
