After two years, Wizards of the Coast’s Dawn of the Defiance RPGA campaign has concluded with Episode #10: Jaws of the Sarlacc. In this week’s Star Wars roundup I’ve got a link to the module as well as Rodney Thompson’s retrospective on the campaign.
In other news, there’s Galaxy at War miniatures previews, a new Jedi Counseling focusing on starship design, a review of the Rebellion Era Campaign Guide, and a writeup of the insane Jedi Joruus C’baoth.
