Expanding Horizons

August 25, 2013 by

Lately I’ve been on kind of a Fate kick. I picked up both Fate Core, and Fate Accelerated Edition from Evil Hat Productions, and I’ve been digging into them all week. For those of you that follow this blog mostly from the D&D side of the street, and aren’t aware of Fate, it’s an rpg […]

WEGs “The Pirates of Prexiar” converted to FFG SW

December 21, 2012 by

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 […]

Space Combat in my SW/Age hack

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 […]

Starfighter combat in SW/AGE

April 23, 2012 by

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 […]

Forgotten idea from my Google Wave: “Fragility”

March 20, 2012 by

Google sent out an email this morning reminding folks that their Wave service was disappearing  at the end of April.  While I didn’t find much use for Wave, I did see its potential for being a neat way to brainstorm ideas with other people.  I logged on to my account for the first time since […]

The Dark Legacy of Evard season is finally over. After running a table this season, I also ran a table for the World Wide Game Day event for the Neverwinter Campaign Setting at my local store. I had a lot of fun and I’m stepping down as a DM this season while looking forward to […]

3 Years Behind the Screen

July 20, 2011 by

Last month marked my third anniversary as a full time DM, and I still enjoy it so much that I haven’t passed the baton to someone else.  It’s actually pretty incredible that I’ve been able to do it for so long without losing much interest (and the same goes for running this blog), as I […]

On August 1st, buy something at a bookstore

July 14, 2011 by

I grew up around books.  Shelves and shelves of them.  My dad is an avid reader, so is my brother.  I have to admit that as a kid, I read a lot less than them, but books were always a part of the scenery.  My wife has a masters degree in reading education, and when […]
