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 […]

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 […]

So news out of Gencon today for fans of the SW franchise.  Fantasy Flight Games has finally released information about their game, and is even selling a beta version of the rules (for a hefty $30 price). The first in what will be a series of three games set to be released in 2013, 2014, […]

Star Wars: Age of Rebellion playtest document is out

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

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 […]

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

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 […]

Star Wars campaign idea: You own the Falcon

  I’ve been jonesing to run a SW game lately.  Really, really bad. It isn’t going to happen… at home my players want to keep playing Dragon Age, and I’m running an online 4e game for some nice folks who seem to be enjoying it.  Regardless, I’ve been thinking of what I would run if […]
