Fan Art Drawings.

I read a lot of books, play too much games and watch too many movies during the weeks. Well not too much, but enough still to influence what I draw and what not (Star Wars, Enslaved – Odyssey to the West, Captain Qwark, The Heroes). . Recently I’ve had time to practise drawing with the

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

It is not better yet it is not worse than its predecessor. It just provides decent enough experience for those who enjoyed the first one. That is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II in a nutshell. Once again you find yourself in the boots of Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, even when the ending in

Games done right: Lessons from Force Unleashed

For starters, let me clarify that this blog post is about the original Force Unleashed, not the newly-released sequel. If it seems weird that I’m talking about a game that has been on the market for two years, you must be new to the blog. I never played Guitar Hero in any incarnation until about nine months ago . I’m still occasionally working on unlocking everything in the 2006 …

The Unknown Regions

The Unknown Regions is the final sourcebook for Wizards of the Coast ’s Star Wars : Saga Edition Role-Playing Game . The book serves as a placeholder for all the books left unpublished, and promises to carry players to the unexplored corners of the Star Wars galaxy. It does this by venturing into the Unknown Regions to explore what fans know – the Chiss…

This week’s Free Stuff is : Sword and Sorcery Saga Swords and Sorcery Saga is a free website containing information, links, and downloads for a Swords and Sorcery conversion of Wizards of the Coast’s Star Wars Roleplaying Game Saga Edition.

Traveller and other games

I’ve got this sudden desire to run some Traveller. This desire is particularly odd since the last time I played Traveller was back when I was about 13, and that was only for one session in any case. Then I’ve occasionally looked at the rulebooks, but the last time was over a decade ago. In fact, it’s getting closer to two…

More Star Wars NPCs For Your Pleasure

So, I continue working. I updated the last ones posted with some little tweaks, and am plugging away at new characters. I’m continuing to give each their own little special trait or ability for use in the coming one shot, which you can read more about here . Read on for the character sheets. Not a lot to say tonight, so just

Star Wars Lives! The Proxis Prospecting Co.

I am quite excited for my upcoming Star Wars game, and I’m always somehow surprised at how easy and fun character generation is in the D6 system is. Every character is different, there are really no “set” classes or templates, and tweaking the ruleset is easier than bullseyeing womp rats in your T-16 back home. In all the excitement, I have three new characters to share…

Star Wars Lives Again

Just a quick hit tonight. I’m sitting here, watching Firefly on Netflix, and making Star Wars RPG characters. How is that for an awesome evening? I’m even going so far as to build a good character sheet, all typed out on the official template with character art worthy of posting. In fact, here’s a preview of the character I’m working on right …

Inspiration [Carnival]

Part of the RPG Bloggers Carnival.  For more information on this month’s carnival, check out Campaign Mastery . Johnn Four asked the following question: What non-game media have most inspired your games and how? It’s an interesting one, to be sure.  Inspiration comes from all directions, so it’s interesting (and useful) to reflect on where our own inspiration comes from.  For me…

Adding To The Star Wars Legacy

I’m not less than three weeks away from running my first of three Star Wars RPG one-shot adventures, all of which will lead up to the start of a new campaign. I thought I’d spend a few minutes discussing the setting, my plans, and what is in store for the players. For starters, you might consider catching up on what was discussed a few weeks…

Quick Hit: Geek Itinerary

Lots to do this weekend, my friends. Lost to do. I have before me a rare weekend that presents to me no extraneous “to do” list. I don’t have to go anywhere. I don’t have to do yard work. I’m not being called into the office. To my knowledge, the wife does not have any surprises to drop on me at the last minute. This means that I can get…

Complete Characters #17: Tarash Cyn, Space Station Operator

Seems like it’s been a lot of news and current events on the blog, lately, so it’s nice to sit down and work on something that we can all use at the table. We are continuing some recent trends, however, as this character is only thinly veiled against its intended setting, Star Wars. My first one-shot game leading up to my Star Wars D6 campaign starts in a couple…

Quick Hit: George Lucas is a liar

So, George Lucas is a liar. Hey, we already knew that, right? But, finally, after years and years of his constant fibbing, Lucas has admitted that he made up the Star Wars story as he went along in a letter that he wrote to the producers of Lost. Read what he says, below the fold: Congratulations on pulling off an amazing…

Rebels, Imperials, and Scoundrels: Star Wars One-Shots

Nothing to do with anything So, as we discussed last time on Jason Richards cannot be trusted , I have an imminent Star Wars D6 campaign coming up. Killer. Now, how will I, as a seasoned and professional game designer, introduce this new glorious work of collaborative fiction into the world? Using my limited skill set, I have devised a way that …

When, Where, and How: Imagining A Star Wars Campaign

Bring it! It’s game time! You probably read in yesterday’s post (and if you didn’t, shame on you) that my little cohort of local gamers has finally found a place to play. It’s wide open, has an established network of gamers from which to pluck new players, and is just a really kick ass place. It’s the one last great …

Droid Does-Pay George Lucas Royalties

Scavenger’s Guide to Droids

Scavenger’s Guide to Droids is the definitive droid sourcebook for Star Wars : Saga Edition , introducing a new chassis-based system for creating droids, a new streamlined “protocol” format that lets players run droids as equipment rather than NPCs, new droid manufacturing traits and personality quirks and a 96 page codex containing dozens of droids. The Droid Codex, with its myriad combat, technical and …
