The first product of the (non-beta) Star Wars Force and Destiny RPG hit stores this week, in the form of the Beginner Game.
So, with E3 leading the way, it has been another crazy week of Star Wars related announcements. Good thing, too, since I'm busy again.
This was a week of surprise announcements and revelations: a new game, a lost novel, and a found script fueling a weird "debate."
This is one of those days when the Star Wars world, or fandom I suppose, is all stirred up from an unexpected revelation in one of the ongoing storylines. No spoilers here, but it will be interesting for a while... Anyway, there seems to be a variety of comics related news this week.
Announced today, I'll be attending the new Kansas City Comic Con as a gaming guest on Friday and Saturday. KCCC is August 7-9, 2015 at Bartle Hall, downtown Kansas City. Schedules for gaming, panels, and other events will be announced before the show. Keep an eye on the web site for updates.
KCCC previously announced TSR and gaming legend Jim Ward as their first gaming guest. Jim is known for the original D&D Deities and Demigods, Gamma World RPG, Metamorphosis Alpha RPG, a long list of video games, and running TSR for a time.
Star Wars Marvel comics writer Jason Aaron was announced as the show's first creator guest. Jason writes the best selling main Star Wars comic line.
The show continues to announce media, creator, and other guests.
Things have slowed down a bit in the Star Wars news department, and I had work to deal with before the holiday, so last week's post just sort of...didn't happen. So, I'm back with a few items....
With the frantic pace of Star Wars news the past few weeks, it's probably about time things slowed down a bit. There is a lot up for discussion now, and probably time to revisit where game fans can join in.
Monday was the increasingly popular Star Wars day, or May the Fourth Be with You. I tend to think a day later in May is more suitable, but a terrible pun is amusing and memorable, so most seem to be running with it. Sometimes, it seems like everyone is trying to get in on the action - a point made on Monday's @midnight show on Comedy Central. Lots of deals and a few really good announcements. And Celebration news and stories keep surfacing, especially now that more videos are hitting the internet.
Star Wars Celebration. Too much to be confined to one day, and too much to be confined to one blog post.
Star Wars Celebration Anaheim was fantastic. It certainly had a seemingly never-ending stream of announcements and news, starting off with a bang with the new Star Wars Episode VII trailer. It's as big or a bigger hit around the world as it was at the show. But, Celebration had far more than that. For starters, it sold out 4 day tickets, Saturday, and Sunday tickets.
