Star Wars: Age of Rebellion playtest document is out

June 1, 2012 by

I released a playtest version of my Dragon Age hack turning it into a Star Wars RPG. You can find it at the Dragon Age Oracle blog. It’s a playtest, and some rules are unfinished, but it is most definitely playable, up to level 10. So if you want to play Star Wars using the […]

Space Combat in my SW/Age hack

May 15, 2012 by

I originally posted this on my Google+ page, I am reposting it here for those not on G+. I play tested space combat in my SW/Age hack last night, and it went pretty well.  I’m going to get into a bit of the crunchy AGE bits here, so bear with me if you don’t understand […]

Tempted by the Dark Side of the SW Age Force

May 3, 2012 by

One of the questions I’ve been asked about my Star Wars/Age conversion is about the Force.  I’m pulling from a variety of sources in this conversion, but admittedly, the d6 game is a big, if not the largest, influence. So here’s how I’m handling the Force and the dark side; the Force is one of the […]

SW/Age hack Adversaries

Another day, another example of where I’m going with this Star Wars/Dragon Age hack.  This is really starting to take shape as a playable game, if only for playtesting purposes. Here are some sample enemies:  a stormtrooper, a thug, a young rancor, an average bounty hunter, and an imperial customs agent. As you can see with the rancor, the […]

Starfighter combat in SW/AGE

April 23, 2012 by

1

One of the things that has to be made up from scratch in my Star Wars/AGE hack is starship combat, which is iconic to SW, yet in AGE there are no vehicular combat rules of any kind.  I decided that the easiest way for me to approach that, and in keeping with the spirit of […]

Star Wars/AGE conversion update

Some time ago I mentioned that I was slowly working on a Dragon Age/Star Wars hack, but I never really posted much more than that.  Since then I’ve received a couple of emails from people interested in the project, so I decided to recharge my batteries and get to it. Over time, I’ve gotten some […]

Videogame to Tabletop: Campaign Journal 1

March 8, 2012 by

(This article was originally written for The Dragon Age Oracle blog) So I’ve decided that my Dragon Age campaign will switch to following the story line (albeit a bit altered) of the videogame.  My 5 players are level 5, and we’ve gone through most of the published adventures, which I believe springboard nicely into getting […]

Dragon Age: Origins Story as a Tabletop Campaign

February 21, 2012 by

I’ve run through all the published adventures for the Dragon Age RPG, and now it’s time to move on to homebrew adventures.  Rather than wreck my brain trying to figure out an epic storyline, I think I’m just going to adapt the plot of the video game to the tabletop.  I have the advantage that […]

Open Discussion: The changing role of the DM

December 20, 2011 by

Monte Cook’s “Legends and Lore” columns at Wizards.com have been interesting.  In them, he seems to be painting a picture of a theoretical future version of D&D, and while I can’t say for sure that he is, it makes sense if you assume he’s been rehired by WOTC to help design 5e.  I’m a believer […]

Our own Helm’s Deep part II

Last night saw the end of the PC’s role as the Heroes of Redhold, an Avvarian settlement in the Frostback Mountains of Ferelden, and it ended on a kick ass note that truly showed how much stunts can turn the tide of battle in the Dragon Age RPG.  FIrst, a quick recap, and be warned, […]
