Star Wars Wednesday - Hello, What Have We Here?

And we're back. I've been working through a series of deadlines at my day job lately, and last week the schedule combined with wear and tear to the point that a post just wasn't going to happen. Things are a bit lighter this week, but I'll still need to keep this short. Fortunately, there are several recent subjects of which I have something, but not a lot, to say.

Star Wars Wednesday - A New Marvel

The release of the first new Marvel Star Wars comic is today. To say this is a highly anticipated event is an understatement, given that it has already sold 1 million copies.

Star Wars Wednesday - Target Acquired

With the holidays, and New Years Eve falling on Wednesday, I didn't get around to a last grab bag post of the year this time. I am trying to kick off 2015 on schedule, though. We'll see how long that lasts. 2014 was a great year for Star Wars, and 2015 appears to be even better. It got off to a great start with the return of Star Wars Rebels, and one of the best episodes yet. Even better, it opens up some new ideas for the RPG. Spoiler warning for the episode on this one - but I'm putting those observations at the very end of this entry with a wide gap in between so those that don't want to see it can read the rest of the post. Things like a few comments on Stay on Target. Happy New Year!

Star Wars Wednesday - Acing the Holidays

Just in time for the holidays, Star Wars Age of Rebellion Stay on Target is officially in stores. So I'm told, anyway. I dropped by my local game store tonight to take a look, since my author's copy is still in transit. The bad news? They didn't have it. The good news? They said they haven't been able to keep it the other Star Wars RPG books on the shelves for very long. So, happy holidays, if you can find it...

Star Wars Wednesday - Hockey and Holidays

It's that time of year again. With the holidays, why not add a little more Star Wars with a Star Wars night hosted by the local hockey team? Not in the area? There is plenty of holiday cheer to share...

Star Wars Wednesday - The Force Awakens...Some Announcements

You would think that the week new Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser released that it would be enough material for one or more weeks of posts. While true, it is also a fact that Star Wars RPG announcements and previews also appeared abruptly after the holiday. Not at all coincidentally around the time people got back to work, I'm sure. On top of this, Rebels also finished off its mid-season episode.

Star Wars Wednesday - KCGF 2014  

Sorry about yet another short hiatus. Travel, deadlines, cons, work...more or less the usual culprits. Last week was KC Game Fair, which I while I did get out some news about what I'd be running, I didn't get it posted here. Unlike past years, I had very little to do with convention planning this time, but I did sign up to run games almost every slot. Just one of those years I didn't want to leave anything out.

Star Wars Wednesday - Series and Series

And....I'm back. Baseball fans already figured out what happened the past two weeks - the Royals made the World Series. With games each of the past two Wednesdays, and all the ones in between, and several days of travel, and not quite enough writing, something had to give, and it was updating the blog. Sure, I could have tried to put something together last week after the final game...but really, who wants to read whatever it would have been after the final loss, with the tying run stranded at third?

Star Wars Wednesday - Blue Milk

Exciting times around town. The Kansas City Royals are on a fantastic, incredible, and fun streak through the postseason....and as of tonight are American League Champions. Still getting used to that, it's been a long time (as those who watched any part of any of the playoff series would know because it seemed the broadcasters said it about every three minutes). Between that and some writing, I've fallen a bit behind on the Stars Wars front this week...but I have a couple of things.

Star Wars Wednesday - Gaming Accessories

I've been on something of a gaming accessories kick lately. Not exactly sure why, but I think it's due to a combination of various Kickstarters, new games being released, and the fun of improving the tactile experience in tabletop gaming. Most of them are just cool and/or fun to have around.
