NPC Spotlight: Jedi Mebsuta

A minor player in the game but still fairly important. If not for himself, but for who he works for.

Friday, March 30, 2012


So I am adding a few new abilities to the game to help out the players and add some more detail to the setting. These will be helpful to add a few more setting based abilities. More will hopefully come later.

Game-A-Week: Dungeon Dice

First off, happy Pi Day everyone. Secondly, happy White Day to our Japanese follows.
This weeks game is Dungeon Dice. An older board game from way back in 1977, many years before any of our group was born.

Talon Journal Entry for 3-9-12

After a long, hard and sweaty training session with the apprentice, Knight Kyla pulls me aside. She tells me that she trusts me and reveals a real Jedi Holocron. Both Fae and Kyla know that the current traditions are wrong since they draw their power from emotion and hatred and want to follow the true Jedi traditions. I offer any assistance I can since I am well versed in both Jedi and Sith traditions. I'm very excited since this is my chance to rebuild the Jedi Order! I also ask her about the force blades and learn that they pull energies from the user rather than a battery.

NPC Spotlight: Darth Cyan

This week we're covering a fairly new NPC to the campaign, but one of the most helpful we've seen. Her ship is the ISD Verde, an ISD with the front end replaced with a bigger docking ring creating a space for open trade.

Getting Into It

Finally we're seeing some action in Star Wars. Not that it hasn't been exiting up until this point, but in the new timeline and the new era, the progress has been slow.

Game-A-Week: Necessary Evil

This next one is part of a great series by Pinnacle Entertainment in their Savage Worlds game. There is a plot point campaign in the back that was updated in the Explorer's edition (this one goes to 11). There are also pregenerated characters included in the book.

Talon Journal Entry for 3-2-12

We're met by a uniformed twi'lek and after a brief conversation we learn that the year is 329 of the New Galactic Calendar. He then leads us to a great chamber where their commander sits high up on a throne. It looks like a small furry creature wearing robes, the dialect it speaks is just as foreign as this place. Much to our relief the twi'lek translates for us. Right away we learn that they have no concept of planets as all were destroyed in the war between the Jedi and Sith. According to him the Jedi eradicated all of the remaining Sith at the end of the war. If that's so, what is this lingering dark side presence I feel? Much of the old technology has been lost and ships are entirely dependent on Jedi for long distance travel as nav computers are a relic of the past. Our interpreter reveals the race of our host, an Ewok. After a few more questions he walks down to get a closer look at us.

NPC Spotlight: Knight Koosh

Saturday seems like as good of day as any to drop this new feature. I started it on Monday to fill in and it's been getting a lot of traffic. For this installment we're going to get away from the major characters and fill in a bit of the background, starting with Knight Koosh.

Sunday Gaming

So I've got the whole Sunday thing figured out (almost). I've managed to wrangle four people that are interested and can attend the game.A fifth would be better, but we get by with what we have.

Game-A-Week: Camp

We took a little break to play some board games after we finished up with Star Wars the other week. This is the first of the games we played: Camp.

NPC Spotlight: The Prophet

Filling in for Black Iniquity, as he is taking the weekend off. So I'm introducing the most useful resource for my players this yet. Hopefully this will also be useful for other Game Masters out there to help build NPCs as well.
First up, we're going to cover the most essential non-player character in the campaign, the mastermind behind it all, The Prophet.

Flatpack Introduction

There we were. I printed the character sheets and got ready to play Flatpack.
The game was pretty interesting to say the least, once I made up enough rules to make it work.

Total Paradigm Shift

So my players wrote me a blank check to mess with their heads by going into the future. So far we're just exploring the world without getting to heavy into the plot (yet). I want them to know some of the characters before getting to far involved.

Game-A-Week: Dungeons and Dragons

Finally we get to the big one. Dungeons and Dragons has pretty much been a large inspiration for most games and gamers for a long time, right up there with Tolkien (which, also was an inspiration for this). A favorite of mine, easy to run and fun to play. Generally agreeable to most people but the only trouble is figuring out what version people want to play.

Talon Recap Beginning to 1-27-12

 This is a look into what got Talon to where he is. A blast from the past and a not so quick recap. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as Black Iniquity and I have enjoyed getting him there.

The Experiment

So we're about four or five months into this so far and I think it works great for me. Since I can see the player views of my game and can adjust things based on this. Normally as a game master I am limited by what my players tell me. Sometimes I would hear things like "so and so said they felt totally lost with the plot" and I could adjust to that, but this way I no longer have to rely on someone coming to me about it.

The Reckoning

So with one person in an escape pod, floating away without any desire to be rescued by any capital ships nearby.
The other two manage in a TIE Bomber and a TIE Interceptor.
