Star Wars Notes from Heart of Darkness

By | 18th January 2017

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. I record my sessions partly because I can watch them back and update notes, this can obviously take… Read More »

Star Wars Adventures on the Outer Rim: Rebel Strike

By | 26th June 2016

It’s been a while since I’ve run any FFG Star Wars games (although I have played in some great one-shots and campaign run by such great GMs as Andre Martinez, Michael Lashambe and Ian Christiansen) so I’ve decided that it’s about time saddle, all the FFG Star Wars games are run are set in the same version… Read More »

The Red Hand of the Empire: Episode I

By | 14th February 2016

Just finished running the first session of our Red Hand of the Empire trilogy, our players portraying a cell of four Imperial Inquisitors called the Red Hand, trained by Lord Vade himself. Very enjoyable game to run, thanks to the players involved, looking forward to the next session 🙂

How I prepare for a Star Wars one-shot

By | 7th February 2016

Sam posted in the Tide of Change group saying that it would be useful to see how some of the GMs prepare for their sessions, so over the course of the weekend I’ve maded this video outlining the process that I go through to create a Star Wars one-shot.

Ending on an (almost) TPK

By | 27th January 2016

All joking aside my RPGs tend not to be that lethal when it comes to character deaths if I am perfectly honest, this is normally due to a mixture of factors, including me erring on the side of caution when it comes to creating encounters and also because I mostly play in systems that are… Read More »

Complete Secrets of the Desert Sands

By | 24th January 2016

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. Intro Crawl Session Actual… Read More »

Red Hand of the Empire – Dark Side Remix

By | 22nd January 2016

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… Read More »

The Red Hand of the Empire

By | 17th January 2016

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… Read More »

Two more Star Wars games

By | 12th January 2016

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 »
