Day 24: Canon vs AU vs Homebrew Settings in RPGs

Day 24: Canon vs AU vs Homebrew Settings in RPGs At this point in my GMing career, I’m convinced that basing your role-playing game campaign in a pre-existing setting is just as hard as creating your own from scratch. (Unless, of course, you’ve already taken it upon yourself to become an expert on the topic, but even then there are bits of trivia to remember, opinions to consider, sources to reconcile, etc.) Running games in an established setting is a shortcut for finding players, but you’ve still got to do your research, be respectful of the correct timeline, and play by the rules.

Talking Edge of the Empire on Order 66 Podcast Ep 12

Talking Edge of the Empire on Order 66 Podcast Ep 12 So GM Dave and GM Chris do an awesome job on their Order 66 Podcast, the only one to my knowledge to cover the Edge of the Empire roleplaying game line. I was lucky enough to be invited onto their show to talk about my work on the Free RPG Day adventure, Shadows of a Black Sun. Take a listen if you can; my interview starts around the halfway mark, but the first half of the show has invaluable advice for players and GMs alike. Episode 12: Once You Go Black Sun, You Never Go Back, Son Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. That is the only way to describe this epic episode. The Order 66...
