I honestly can’t believe it’s already June. Partly because we had snowfall less than a month ago, but also because time has truly flown since I started working on Star Wars.
When I’m not staying late to hit deadlines, I’m playing or running at least two RPGs a week (Dresden Files, Edge of the Empire, and a friend’s homebrew system, Syrionys). I’ve also been attempting to initiate the boy into role-playing games, though it hasn’t been easy topping games like Skyrim or Total War: Shogun 2 for him. That, and I’ve been getting ready for the Origins Game Fair in less than a week. Perhaps it’s clear now why it’s been so hard to stay up to date with the blog.
I was super excited to watch my Star Wars: Edge of the Empire sessions sell out almost immediately. I’ll have Crates of Krayts and the Beginner Game on hand if people want to try them, otherwise I’ll be running my own adventure to demo the core rules for people every night at 7pm. I also have something special planned for my Saturday night session, so I hope they enjoy!
