Star Wars developer Rodney Thompson has a good post up on talking about lessons learned after the conclusion of the Dawn of Defiance campaign. Of particular interest (at least for me) w...

Eureka! (My son's campaign) 2 Replies

He wants to play a Jedi...and it was so obvious, but I kept missing it: Run the campaign in a Jedi Academy! I can utterly control his environment (with an in-game rationale) until he's ready to br...

If you had to choose just one... 4 Replies

If you had to choose just one to use in a Star Wars game, would you introduce: 1) A ruthless Gungan crime lord or 2) A Gungan Sith assassin.

Making A Chiss took a Chiss from level 1 with randomly generated ability scores, all the way through level 20...mostly as an excuse to play around with the system.

That's what I liked about it. It doesn't restrict you. Also the comics have been a blast. I like the fact that it's not about the Yavin 4, and new heroes (Or Anti-Heroes) are getting time.

I love how the Legacy book for Saga basically begs you to treat it like a kitchen sink of Star Wars goodness.

Currently I like the Clone Wars, but reading Legacy makes me want to play in that era. Lots of stuff going on in that era, and it's open without as much cannon behind it.

I am playing around with character creation in Saga right now, and it is really just cool.

I have a ton of D6 stuff and a handful of the books for the first go around of d20. I liked the D6, but - especially with Jedi - it doesn't fit what we have now. I couldn't stand the first attempt at d20 Star Wars...but I got the Saga core in a trade and it reads VERY well. I'm planning on using it to wean my son into roleplaying games.

Thanks for creating the group! I had created one of my own, then discovered that yours already existed. Mine has now been disintegrated.

As for Star Wars, my group's been playing Saga Edition for the last year or so. While I have the rule books for several of the previous editions (one d6, two d20), Saga Edition's the first one that my group really took to. I think that's largely because it fixed the things we'd grown to dislike about D&D 3.5 (namely iterative attacks, overly complicated trip/grapple rules) but didn't take the d20 rules as far as D&D 4E did.

Didn't want Star Wars to get shuffled off into the D&D 3.5 area, and the D6 folks tend to not care for the d20 Star here we go.
