Fantasy Flight Announces New Campaign Expansion For Star Wars: Armada

Games Workshop Previews From Adepticon

Adepticon is happening up in Chicago. I hope everyone that's there and reading this will head to Portillo's for me at least once. Italian Beef (dipped), Polish sausage (Maxwell Street Style), and a Hot Tamale. If you're not there, then you've not had a chance to see all the previews that Games Workshop has going on.

Midweek Snippets

Halfway there, everybody. We're halfway there. We've made it this far, we can make it the rest. Hopefully, your weekend is prepped and ready for some gaming. Mine will have some D&D and then, I don't entirely know. We'll just have to see. But, before I get there, I need a quick snack. And that's what we've got here. It's been a while since I've had the pleasure of talking about a DreamForge mini, but that's what's on the platter today.

Fantasy Flight Announces Super Star Destroyer Delays

Making big things takes a long time.  The Brooklyn Bridge or Sears Tower weren't built in a day. So, when you're creating the biggest starship ever to come out for Star Wars: Armada, it's going to take time. Unfortunately, with time can potentially come delays, so it takes more time. While I certainly wanted to pick up one of these ships ASAP, I'm going to have to wait until Q3 before I can get my hands on a Super Star Destroyer.

Starfinder Critical Fumble Deck Available From Paizo

Rolling a 1 in a game is bad. You missed your attack, which could've been absolutely vital. But what if it was even worse than that?

Fantasy Flight Preview Imperial Death Troopers For Star Wars: Legion

One of the cool things about Prequel movies is that you can introduce a cool new concept, or unit, or character that's really cool... and then suddenly disappears forever from everything because they can't just go back and work them into the later movies that came out earlier... Such is the fate of the Imperial Death Troopers. But while we won't be seeing them show up in A New Hope anytime soon, you can have them on your Star Wars: Legion tabletops relatively soon.

Coming up with a world as a GM is really tough. There's about a million things to try and figure out, and it can all get very complex very fast.
