GamerNationCON 4 Debriefing

GamerNationCON 4 Debriefing Last weekend I flew down to Plano, Texas, for GamerNationCON 4, a tight-knit tabletop gaming convention put on by the amazing folks of the d20 Radio network. They’d invited me to the guest of honor and run some of my favorite games, as well as to give a talk on gamemastering and developing roleplaying games. I’m so happy they did, as I had a blast meeting the GamerNation tribe and getting to put some faces to the names of people in the Star Wars RPG fan community. And there were some unforgettable gaming moments to boot! Besides running events of my own, I was also...

Looking Ahead to Gen Con

Looking Ahead to Gen Con It’s really only a little more than a month away, and I’m excited to be going to “the best four days in gaming” (for my first time) as part of the Fantasy Flight Games team. Also for the first time, FFG is going to be demoing all of their role-playing game lines for beginners and experts alike. Not only do I get to introduce people to the game line I work on, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, but I also get to GM one of my favorite game systems and settings in general, Warhammer Fantasy 3rd edition. I played one of my all-time most memorable...

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...

My Origins 2013 Schedule

My Origins 2013 Schedule 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...
