Catching my Breath, Looking Ahead

Edge of the Empire Core BookThus ends my first two weeks at the new job at Fantasy Flight Games. I have to say, my coworkers are amazing and I’m really excited about working on the new Edge of the Empire role-playing game line. In case you missed it, we finally announced the Core Rulebook and GM screen, and the Dice App for iOS and Android has been updated as well (for free). You can pick up the dice that will be used in the core game in the Beginner Box, as well as some punch-out tokens, quick-start rules, and an introductory scenario. There is also a free supplemental adventure, “Long Arm of the Hutt”, designed to pick up where Pash, Oskara, Lowhrrick and Vex-41 left off.

I’m tentatively going to be GMing 16 hours of Star Wars: EotE at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, June 12-16, as part of the contingent from the Wittenberg Role-playing Guild. I will be demoing the rules and featuring a number of adventures to choose from, so the group can decide what they’d like to play. Look for us in the event book!

In the meantime, here in the Twin Cities I have more role-playing campaign opportunities than I know what to do with. Last night I sat down with a new gaming group interested in playing in a Legend of the Five Rings campaign, which I have wanted to run for what feels like forever now. Granted, I did successfully pull off a 20-person Winter Court LARP using the Oriental Adventures rules in December, but I’ve never actually run a 4th edition tabletop game. They seemed fine with that, and were moreso excited for the prospect of a new GM, I think. They’ll start as part of the Imperial Legions traveling to Shrio no Usagi to respond to a cryptic scroll asking for help. The year is 1013, and the Great Clans are already edging closer to the precipice of war over a new schism in Shinseism that threatens the traditional order.

I also have a Call of Cthulhu, Deadlands: Reloaded, Star Wars and Pathfinder game to think about, but I’ll probably have to pare down that number in order to stay sane. That, and I will be getting a new cat tomorrow, and will want to spend more time with her while she gets used to her new home. So! We’ll see how that goes. Pictures of her may well be added to Twitter sometime soon, she’s a beautiful half-Siamese mix!
