Aaarghhh! I'm a Barabel Pirate Lord!

Here’s my attempt at a quick and dirty conversion of the introductory adventure for the 2nd Edition Revised and Expanded version of West End Games SW RPG, The Pirates of Prexiar, into the new FFG SW system… I am not going to reproduce the whole adventure, just the relevant bits. This isn’t just a blog […]

The front of the box.

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

Found this on Amazon: “Storm Over Baldur’s Gate: Sundering Adventure 1″ Are we looking at the first dndnext adventure?

It seems that Wizards of the Coast is on a reprint kick. Of course, it’s easy to figure out why.  4th Ed. is on its way out, and at this point that’s more reality than speculation.  Books haven’t been announced, and yeah, Dungeon/Dragon content is still being released, but…. obviously 5th Ed. is king right […]

So at the Gencon keynote WOTC announced today that the DnD playtest process will take two years, and that they are going to open their back catalog in electronic format next year. So that means a 2014 release of the game, just in time for the 40th anniversary of DnD. I called it all, including […]
