I'd Just as Soon Kiss a Mookiee Podcast Appearance

Last week Jason Fry and Shannon Shark invited me on their Mets and Star Wars podcast called I'd Just as Soon Kiss a Mookiee, just before the Royals-Mets opening day. We talk baseball, stadiums, Royals, Mets, the Star Wars RPGs, Rebels and more. It was a lot of fun. Jason is a Star Wars writer (Atlas, The Weapon of a Jedi, and many more) and blogs about the Mets at Shannon Shark blogs about the Mets at

Since recording the podcast, the Royals defeated the Mets in opener. Jason's blog recap entry is here.



Threat Detected podcast interview

Recently, I was a guest on the actual-play Star Wars Saga Edition podcast Threat Detected. They're running through the entire Dawn of Defiance campaign, recording the sessions and posting them. They also post pictures of their sessions to their website, mainly of the map and terrain layouts during play. Part 1 of the interview runs in Episode 9, from the 1hr 29m to the 1 hr 53m mark. We discuss Star Wars and a bit of D&D 4e.

Minis Mayham 42 - Life, the Universe, and Scenarios!

Last week, I was a guest on Minis Mayham #42 podcast, where we discussed 8 scenarios entered into their first scenario contest, and they announced the winner. With one exception, I played through all of the scenarios multiple times. They were very creative and fun. On the podcast we discuss their strengths and weaknesses, presentation and balance. Good stuff for scenario designers to consider. At some point, I think they will post the scenarios to their forums.

Each used Christopher West's excellent Maps of Mastery maps, available at his website. This was the first time I'd used Chris' maps in play, and they are equal to his official Star Wars minis maps. For those who don't know, Chris was the artist on all except one of the official maps over the years. His Maps of Mastery releases are just as easy to use, but lack any official Star Wars images. They're good for both minis and any sci-fi RPG.

Order 66 Podcast 104 - Into the Unknown

Earlier this week, I joined the cast of Order 66 along with fellow authors Rodney Thompson and Jonathan Stevens, discussing The Unknown Regions. Received a lot of praise for the feats and talents, which was a bit unexpected given that I'd been too busy to follow the forums at WotC and elsewhere lately. I'll try to check in later on. I'm glad we've had such a positive response to the book.
