I often get people asking me about making notes or prep for role-playing sessions and it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while, I’m always torn between making notes in session and making them afterwards.

Two more Star Wars games

I really enjoyed running my recent Edge of the Empire one-shot Graveyard Shift, the players were great and it seemed to be really well received, this has lead to me planning two additional one-shot, one of which is an Age of Rebellion game where a small Y-Wing squadron attempts to free a prisoner with vital… Read More »
