While blasters and lightsabers are certainly at the forefront of many people’s minds when they think about what they want their Star Wars characters to specialize in, some players take a bit of a different approach. They’re more interested in letting their words be the main focus. It̵...

Man, I need to lose weight. I’m starting to feel like a Hutt, as opposed to just a polar bear. But as far as I know, I don’t take up 2 crew slots on a starfighter, yet. Jabba does. Yes, the crime lord is coming to X-Wing. No, he’s not got his own starfighter or […]...

And we’ve come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I’m sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I’ve picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I’m cool like that. 😉 Anyway, I know what you̵...

These aren’t just not the droids you’re looking for, you want to make sure that they’re not the droids that are looking for you. While they might outwardly look like C-3P0 and R2-D2, don’t expect BT-1 and 0-0-0 to help you overthrow oppressive regimes. They’re going to b...

Hi-ho, Paisley! To battle! Ok, I don’t really know if any of the Oathsworn Cavalry have named their horse Paisley, or Silver, or Fluffer-Nutter, or anything like that, but I suggest you name them that, just because. Anyway, today we’re getting another look inside Runewars, the upcoming fa...

Hello, Saturday! It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. L...

Scum & Villainy is getting their first huge ship in the form of the C-ROC Cruiser. But these big ships always come with an extra ship tagging along. So while the focus might be on the big guy, you’d be remiss to skip over the little fella and the different pilots and upgrades it’ll b...

When it comes to RPGs, I don’t normally make face-beaters. You know, the big fighter/barbarian that does a bajillion damage with each swing. I’m more likely to play the Bard or something like that. The kind of character that’ll win a battle without making more than diplomacy checks....

When we think of the Great Old Ones and the Cthulhu mythos, it’s usually gruesome murders and horrific mind-melting insanity that we picture as the possible outcomes. Well, in Cities in Ruin, things go a bit more large-scale in terms of destruction. The Disaster Deck will have you diving for co...

The powers of the Great Old Ones are… well… great. Those that look to undo their nefarious schemes must be strong as steel mentally, physically, and emotionally. Any less and you’re left a gibbering waste or a red smear on the pavement. It takes a special kind of person to do it, an...
