Storm the Galaxy with the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide

An armored Sith lord and a woman in brown clothing hold lightsabers aloft.

One of the challenges of running a Star Wars campaign is finding a way to incorporate plenty of Jedi and their Sith nemeses without tearing asunder the canonical Star Wars timeline. The Expanded Universe has helped with this, providing a number of Dark Apprentices to serve as fodder for Jedi who some how escaped Palpatine’s … Read more

Game Day: Bloggers of the Old Republic

Three weeks into our new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic campaign it became obvious: we needed a blog. Or at least, I needed a blog. Even without leaving the Vargis Tau star system and its binary world of Zebulon we’d still managed to accumulate a dozen-odd NPCs, three or four ships, three adventure … Read more

Star Wars: Saga Edition – Annotated Playtest #1

Various scenes from the Star Wars movies cover a game master screen. In front of the screen is a small ceramic statue; behind it are several Star Wars books.

Our Star Wars: Saga Edition campaign kicked off on Friday with our first full-fledged Knights of the Old Republic session.

This one will work a little differently; instead of annotating a single … Read more

As my group’s D&D Dark City campaign winds down, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game is ramping up. This week sees the group off because of a combination of family colds and Celtic Fest (which, given the rainy weekend forecast, will likely result in more colds, but I digress) but we’ve spent … Read more

The Quick and Easy Gaming Path

A few months back, I bought an Xbox, fired it up, and promptly began blasting my way through the excellent first person shooter Halo. I beat the game on its “average” level, and began working my way through the next most difficult one. It’s certainly living up to its rating, and after having been stymied … Read more
