Game-A-Week: Legend of the Burning Sands

This is another game I don't really own, but to make it a little harder on myself, it's technically not even it's own game. Legend of the Burning Sands is more of an expansion for Legend of the Five Rings (fourth edition).

Talon Journal Entry for 2-17-12

Myself and some thirteen thousand other crew members are adrift in escape pods. To my surprise the Mandalorians and Rebels form up together and target every Tie fighter on the battlefield. Kall and Thane also join up with them.

Advantage

So I am really trying to start taking advantage of this opportunity I have with a blog and my players (even just one) posting their side of the story.

Game Night Preview for Feb 24th

So here's the scoop on the game tonight. We have another buddy coming over for as a guest star to our game session. This means a short night for Star Wars, but a lot of BSing at the table.

Game-A-Week: 7th Sea

So this section is a little weird to write, since it's the first game on my list that I do not own. Rough I know, but I love Legend of the Five Rings and this game is stylistically similar. Made by the same people even.

Talon Journal Entry for 2-10-12

We're called before Star Killer who intends to give us more responsibility, ha ha. We discuss our current situation and the fact that we're in the middle of three warring factions. We formulate a simple suicide plan, lure all the factions into one place for another battle. Kall contacts the Mandalorians, Mandalore in particular. Talks don't go very well but they agree to show up and pick us up if we crash our Star Destroyer into an Imperial Capital Ship. Star Killer agrees to give us command of his Capital Ship and departs (chicken shit).

Not filler, honest.

So deciding to set up a blog for the group was a pretty easy thing to do. We have a lot of fun stories to share. It also forces certain people to put more effort into writing notes for the session. However actually running the blog for the group is another matter. As you can tell with three authors, we have two people doing all the writing. I've thoguht about adding everyone from the group, but am worried that with more people writing, it might become more difficult to keep everything flowing. We're definitely trying to keep pace with the Monday/Friday updates (although I know sometimes mine are on Saturdays or Sundays) and we try and fill in on Wednesdays whenever we can.

Game-A-Week: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Power

This game is one from my childhood, long lost but I found a new copy for my friends and I to enjoy. Every one's favorite, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Power board game. I've had this one for a little while and just needed an excuse to bust it out.


DAZ Studio 4


Nothing directly game related here. These are two pieces I created using DAZ Studio 4, I really like the software and as you can tell I was having a bit of fun. My goal with this is to learn the software so I can start creating my own characters and rendering scenes from our games. Due to work, lack of time and life I cannot give a timeline at this time but keep a look out!

Talon Journal Entry for 2-3-12

On the way back to our capital ship I feel enlightened and dismantle my old lightsaber only to reconstruct it in a manner that suits me better. Upon arrival we immediately notice that the ship has been stocked full with fighters, as if preparing for an assault. My speculations are correct, as soon a we dock we're each assigned Tie Interceptors. The Star Destroyer jumps immediately as we prepare for combat.

Game List

So the holidays are over, we had taken a week off of gaming for a friends wedding. And I'm getting over some nasty injuries from work. Of course that hasn't stopped me from thinking about gaming.
Right now I'm in talks with another group that wants me to come in and DM some 3.5 games for them. I'm looking at Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil or World's Largest Dungeon. Maybe, just maybe we'll look a Ptolus though. I've always been interested in that. I am however going to give them the full list and let them pick out what they're interested in.

Game-A-Week: Legend of the Five Rings

So this next game is one of my personal favorites. I have an almost complete collection of the first edition books and it was the first RPG I really got into. I had previously played Dungeon and Dragons (and Advanced) but never got into it as much as I did with this game.
I've also gotten the second and third editions for the game, but not as many books in my collection, nor do we really play them.

Talon Journal Entry for 1-27-12

With nowhere else to go we head back upstairs. I make sure to keep a suspicious eye on the group, you never know when someone might shoot you in the back of the head! As soon as we emerge we hear the Sith Spirit resonate in our heads "You're not the Star Killer, I shall bury you in this place!" Immediately the complex starts to shake and crumble apart! We take the turbo lift up and in the next room we hear all of the combat droids marching around and as the saying goes: 'We're between a rock and a hard place'.

More Updates

Just a quick update to let everyone know what I've done over the last couple of days. I've added in a few tools to help us bring you links to find the games we're playing. I've also added in Jump Breaks to help give the site a cleaner look. I've already gotten positive feedback on these and I think I like the look better myself.

Battle of Yavin

So it turns out Starkiller has been orchestrating a lot more than previously thought. The Rebels attacked the Death Star and the Mandos attacked the rebels. Then Star Killer swooped in and attacked everyone. The players fled at the second sign of "trouble", namely Mandos that were as of yet unsure of what the teams were in this fight, but were glad to curb stomp the rebels. The players then retreated into the safety of their allies Imperial-Class Star Destroyer.

The Coming Storm

We finished out last week with a single character death (RIP meatshield), setting up the coming events and the jedi going full Sith.
Early in the campaign I gave an "out" to become an evil group. Since this is a sandbox game I have basically been manipulating the group into several roles where they can fall where they want. Right now they've basically locked themselves on a path since after the comign events start happening, changing sides will be extremely difficult.

Game-a-Week: Star Wars

This is our new series we'll be doing where I cover one of our games from my game list. This series should last roughly a year, longer if I can manage to get more games. I might choose to add more types of games other than just our standard Role Playing games later to extend the life of this section. Feel free to comment on the games and let us know what you think. That way we know what to play next.
First up is our current game, Star Wars.
