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

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 […]

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 […]

Videogame to Tabletop: Campaign Journal 1

(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 […]
