Sooooo.....that was painful, but things are running more smoothly on the computer front. Me personally? Not so much, but I'm recovering too from this summertime cold thing that's been going on all week. So, I'll just sort of ease back into this Star Wars blog thing...
This past week, Wizards of the Coast announced the Tyranny of Dragons adventure lineup for the all-new Adventurers League. The Adventurers League is D&D's new organized play for conventions, stores, and more.
There are different types of adventures depending on venue and targeted play style/purpose. There are Epics (kickoff events at major conventions), Encounters (core storyline, in-store), and Expeditions (convention premier, then stores and other conventions).
My part in this series is the D&D Expeditions adventure DDEX1-7 Drums in the Marsh, set to debut at Archon in St. Louis, MO in October, then open for wider distribution after that, assuming I've understood the plan.
Here's the official listing:
So....missed the entire month of June. Didn't really plan it that way, just sort of happened for a different reason each week. Well, a lot has happened in the meantime and this week, well, this arrived today.
So I can talk about it. Actually, I already have. One of the items I should have posted over the past few weeks was my designer's diary entry on the Fantasy Flight Games site. It covers a bit about the Galaxy and the Rebellion. I'll have more to share on that later (Future topic! Only a 10% chance I'll forget I ever said it...).
May 25th was, of course, the release date for Star Wars. Among those who were reminiscing this week was one who posted a newspaper ad from his home town...which received the movie several months after opening. That got me thinking about seeing Star Wars for the first time. I've tried in the past to try to pin down, more or less, when I went to see it. With the help of the rabbit hole that is the internet plus myself and others' hazy memories, I thought I'd take another shot....
Saturday is close to Wednesday, right? Well, anyway, it's been that kind of week. Lots of exciting announcements for not only Star Wars, but also Dungeons and Dragons, both of which I have a great interest in for obvious reasons. I doubt anyone seeing this by now hasn't already seen some of the announcements, but I'll throw a few thoughts in there as well.
Switching things up a bit this week, with the FFG announcement and, of course, George Lucas' birthday today...
Today, Fantasy Flight Games announced Star Wars Edge of the Empire Far Horizons, A Sourcebook for Colonists, to be released Q3 2014. I'm one of the authors. That is about all I can say for the moment, but there are some details in the announcement.
Lucasfilm finally broke the news about the Expanded Universe going forward this wee....EPISODE 7 CAST ANNOUNCEMENT!
