Star Wars Wednesday - More Talnar's Rescue & Interview

Well, it's not even close to Wednesday this week, but chances are, if I change it to Star Wars Weekly, it will become soon become Star Wars Monthly.

So, I received word recently that the Threat Detected podcast has posted the last section of the interview they started with me regarding Talnar's Rescue and Saga Edition in general, last fall. You can find a list of links here. Thread Detected also posts a lot of Saga stats related to the games they are playing, so Saga players should keep them in mind when looking for new resources.

Star Wars Wedensday - Podcasts: Blazing Chain & Talnar's Rescue

This week's Star Wars Wednesday is a bit delayed, once again. No good reason, other than holiday prep and forgetting to post at the last minute. I have even less of an excuse, as I planned to reference my most recent appearance on the Order 66 podcast, and a live-game recording of my popular adventure Talnar's Rescue over at the Threat Detected podcast

Star Wars Wednesday - Wookiees & Darths

This past week saw the running of the 2011 KC Game Fair. Though not as large as last year's version (nor was it expected to be, as last year was a bit unique), a lot of gamers had a good time, and a lot of money was raised for Harvesters along the way (though that isn't the focus of the con, Harvesters has been our charity of choice for years for donations raised at the con, with Toys for Tots a more recent addition).

As usual, I ran Star Wars Saga Edition a couple of times

Star Wars Wednesday - Monsters & Halloween

I was going to head back into useful game advice this week, with a bit on adapting D&D 4e or Gamma World monsters and opponents for Star Wars use. With experience in designing the beast quick creation system for Saga in Unknown Regions, and D&D monster design from Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale, I'd hoped to find a quick and dirty way for GMs to do it on the fly.

Star Wars Wednesday - Sketch Cards & the RPG

So, I started this post last week, then deleted it because it became too much like an earlier post, and I decided to go the starwars.com route anyway. This week I'm returning to the subject because:

Star Wars Wednesday - Longarm of the West

So, I finally have a little more time this week to follow up on something handed to me at GenCon: Chris West's latest Maps of Mastery map. As with Chris' earlier maps, the Mass Transit III map works with Star Wars Minis, the RPG and most any sci-fi RPG out there.
