Is Mace Windu Alive And Well?
I will answer that in my Star Wars campaign set a few years after Darth Sidious took over the seat of power and became Emperor. I think it’s going to be a dark and exciting avenue for the players to explore; since they will be in familiar territory but a different avenue.
Looking forward to kicking off this campaign… eventually, hopefully, fingers crossed.
This bad boy arrived in the mail today.
There were giants in the Earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in onto the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
The world of the Bible comes to life in this campaign setting for the d20 System. Play a wandering Babylonian magus, a sorcerer in the service of Pharaoh, a Canaanite maker of idols, or a prophet of the God of Israel. Walk the streets of ancient Jerusalem, stand beside King David as one of his Mighty Men, smite Philistines, ponder the mysteries of gargantuan tombs, look upon the dwellings of the gods, and battle demons, dragons, plagues, and the legendary beasts of Babylon.
Tonight’s game was called on account of two players not showing up this evening, one was away at a badminton tourney and the other had family commitment to tend too. So, we just sat around and chatted about old adventures and campaigns we’ve been through, the various games that we liked to play and what not.
We were all jazzed to play some Cyberpunk but the others felt it wouldn’t be kosher to go on without the missing. And, that’s understandable since when we last left off was just a prelude to what was to come.
And after having three teeth extracted on Thursday afternoon, I could use the break in the action as well. We chatted about Star Wars and what episode VII might be about; also touched upon the role playing games using the Star Wars universe; West End Games and WOTC and if I were to start a SW campaign (sometime in the near future) what system would they like to play with.
d20 Star Wars seems to be their choice and I’m okay with that. So, here I sit digging through some old notes and rewriting one of my first adventures I had written for Star Wars (the WEG version) and converting it over to the d20 system.
Watching Trigun: Badlands Rumble made think of an adventure scenario for Anima: Beyond Fantasy. Figured I’d crack open the books, do a little research, jot a few notes down to develop at a later date.
Maybe, I should develop it for the Trigun d20 system instead?
Nah, Anima: Beyond Fantasy for the win. Since, I’m planning on running a Spycraft campaign later on this year and that’s a d20 system game.
RPG of the Day: The Wheel of Time Roleplaying Game (WOTC 2001)
The Wheel of Time Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game based on The Wheel of Time, an epic fantasy series by American author Robert Jordan. The game consists of two publications by Wizards of the Coast, a core rulebook published in October 2001 and an expansion, The Prophecies of the Dragon, which followed in April 2002. Shortly after the release of Prophecies of the Dragon, Wizards of the Coast confirmed that they would not be proceeding with any further expansions for the game. The role playing game rights have since reverted to the estate of Robert Jordan.

Star Wars: A New Beginning
I’ve been on holidays for the past few days now and have caught up on my rest and fully rejuvenated. It’s been a few weeks since my last gaming session and now I’m recharged and ready to go. To tackle the dice and kicking the imagination into full gear now.
I’ve been working out a story arc for a Star Wars (d20 system) campaign. Basing it during the Clone Wars era and adventures involving the aspects of the movies but spinning off in a totally different direction. Sure, it might be a tad darker than the actual prequel movies, but that’s the way I wanna roll with this one.
Hopefully, the players will appreciate the adventures as we weave our own tale in a universe that George Lucas created, borrowed, liberated from other sources.
- Overheard at a convention:
- Guy #1: Whats the sense of rolling a d20 when you have a +15 modifier? The creatures AC is 14 so that's a hit.
- Guy #2: That element of chance that you will miss.
That Awkward Moment…
When you realize you’ve been rolling a d20 with numbers 0-9 twice instead of 1-20 and wondering why you couldn’t hit a damn thing all night.
