Star Wars Wednesday - Planet Comicon Wrapup

Planet Comicon was a whirlwind. It grew yet again in size and likely attendance, though the numbers haven't been announced as far as I can tell. Last year was 70,000. I spent most of my time in the game room, which was much bigger and as busy as the rest of the convention. I wasn't the only one running Star Wars RPGs. There was an impressive table set up...

Star Wars Wednesday - Rebels and Rogues

Rebels and Rogues...I feel like that would make a good title for something beyond a blog post. In any case, this week includes a few thoughts about how Rogue One and Rebels reveals details about the state of the Rebel Alliance, and how that might impact RPG sessions. Then I'll switch gears and note a few things about the rapidly approaching 2017 convention season.

Star Wars Wednesday - Shows and Cons

Time flies when you're too busy and traveling too much to post. Also, you know your flights are going to have some issues when your ultimate destination's airport evacuates for a tornado warning. No serious issue in the end, just some inconvenience. Among the items taking up time was one of many summer cons I'll be attending in some fashion...and it had a new Star Wars guest...

Star Wars Wednesday - Planet Comicon 2015

Planet Comicon was very successful again this year. The crowd control was better. The main hall probably had more than last year (hard to tell), and the main stage was a huge upgrade in size and atmosphere. There was plenty of Star Wars, and the light saber dealer appeared to clean up, given the number of sabers seen around the con. The 501st, Rebel Legion, and other groups were attended, complete with photo-op dioramas and even a mock up of a Rebel snowspeeder.

Star Wars Wednesday - A Week of Announcements

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.

Star Wars Wednesday - Ups and Downs

This week reflects a lot of Star Wars news of late: information on new movies - yay! More Lucasfilm layoffs - boo! I'm so busy, it's hard to keep up! Ugh! OK, that last one is just me, with a work trip and the usual other stuff taking up time this particular week. Other stuff like retyping this post after it went poof after...never mind. OK, probably not just me. So, on with the Star Wars ups and downs.

Star Wars Wednesday - Planet Comicon

This past weekend was Planet Comicon weekend here in Kansas City. The convention has been around for many years, and I've posted about previous experiences before. This year, it moved to the most prestigious venue in KC, the downtown Bartle Hall convention center. It easily lived up to the new venue, in guests and overall attendance. And, it included several Star Wars guests...as well as other big media guests.
