I recently ran a very enjoyable Age of Rebellion game where the players were a group of rebels who were attempting to recover a prisoner with important information, unfortunately he has been taken prison by Jabba the Hutt’s forces, all of the videos connected with this session can be seen below.
After my posts earlier about Star Wars intro crawl creators I was chatting with Richard Wentworth on Facebook, he showed me some interesting writing about colour theory and made some great suggestions on how I could make a more darkside looking version of the Red Hand of the Empire (my upcoming trilogy of games where the players will portray Inquisitors working for the Empire) intro crawl. After several attempts at making one using crawl creators eventually, although they made it easier, I returned to my self-made template in my own video editing software since it gave me more control.

One of the things I’ve really been enjoying about running a load of Star Wars RPG games recently is that I’ve been making intro crawls for each of the episodes and putting them on my Youtube channel, if you don’t know what an intro crawl is then it’s the bit at the start of a Star Wars film where the text scrolls up the screen and gives you some background on the film, normally being followed by a space battle or scene of a planet or similar.
Still not sure what I mean? Well have no fear you can the intro crawls from the first six Star Wars movies by clicking here. Continue reading →
A few people in the Tides of Change facebook community have asked about playing darkside character (especially with the release of Force & Destiny) and, whilst in a normal Star Wars game, I don’t really think that characters to embrace the darkside fully have a place it did get me thinking about how a short-term darkside game might be fun.
A good example of this was the one-shot that André ran where we had Gothnog play a darksider with myself and theSwamper playing dark trooper style droids, this worked really well for a mission-focussed one-off.
I’ve been toying with the idea of running a trilogy that wasn’t for my regular group, so I decide to do a darkside trilogy. Continue reading →
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 information from Jabba the Hutt and the other a Force & Destiny one-shot where the PCs are a small group of force-sensitives hiding on the Outer Rim who have been experiencing strange dreams that draw them towards an unchartered part of the Sector.
