The next generation of Blackrazor Guilders have strapped on their fathers' swords, sat down at the gaming table, and begun slinging dice.

Earlier in the summer Evernote limited their free service to only allow syncing between two devices. This severely hampered my Home Mac/Work Mac/iPad/iPhone workflow, and led me to try some other services: Google Keep and SimpleNote.

Star Wars: Saga Edition is back ... at least with the Blackrazors. Our original Saga Edition run took place from 2008-2011 during the dark days of the Edition Wars. Turned off by 4e, burned out on 3e, we turned to a system that offered the crunchiness we enjoyed with a campaign setting we loved.

It didn't work out that way.
