It's been quite a week so far, and it's only Wednesday, and there is much more to come. It's one of those times when the stars align and bunch of stuff is announced at once. Also, I'm really glad I didn't get a chance to write this last night, given that one of the announcements is today. So what's up? A released adventure, a new announced title, and I'll be at a convention this weekend and next. Fun times.
Today's announcement was for Star Wars Age of Rebellion Strongholds of Resistance, A Sourcebook for Alliance Worlds. I'm sure I've mentioned I like secret Rebel Bases somewhere around here before, so I was really happy to get involved in this. See the announcement and check out the fantastic art by Ben Zweifel for a new base I designed. The FFG art department continues to raise the bar for RPG and Star Wars art. It all looks great.
FFG also posted another preview of the Smugglers book, Fly Casual, which is out now.
Yesterday, Pinnacle Entertainment Group released Pranac Pursuit, my adventure for The Last Parsec to the Kickstarter backers. TLP is the new sci-fi exploration setting for the Savage Worlds RPG. Hope everyone has a good time with it. It looks great, and I'm really loving the art and graphics style for this line.
Next up, I'll be attending GamerNation Con in Dallas this weekend, which is hosted by GamerNation Studios and the Order 66 podcast. I'll be there basically all of Saturday and Sunday. As for my schedule...they'll let me know. I will, of course, be bringing one of the adventures I've been talking about the past few weeks, though I think I'm out time on the other. Too much day job and life in general to cram it in. With Sam Stewart and Star Wars freelancers around, it ought to be a lot of fun. It is a bummer that Sam Witwer and Chloe Dykstra had to back out due to filming obligations, but that's how it goes. Fortunately for me, I get another opportunity to see them very soon....
Like the next weekend at Planet Comicon here in KC, assuming they can make it. I'll be running some games in the increasingly more organized gaming room. Check out this page for more info. There will be scheduled events as well as the normal game library. Among the RPGs will be Star Wars, Savage Worlds The Last Parsec, D&D Adventurers League, and more. Some are long games, but many are relatively short demos. I think there may be a dungeon delve.
And there's more...Star Wars. The Rebels season finale aired on Monday, and it was fantastic. If you're not watching it, go find it or catch the reruns. Next season should be even better. Don't forget to watch the Rebels Recon episode on starwars.com AFTER you watch the finale.
Marvel's next Star Wars line is out, Princess Leia. Haven't picked it up yet, but it's waiting for me at my local comics shop.
And finally, the next Star Wars novel, Heir to the Jedi also just released.
Like I said, a really busy week so far...
