This Sunday - Star Wars is back! Gamemaster Mike Phillips makes his guest-host comeback as we return to the mis-adventures of clone trooper TC-1492 (AKA Raylin Corr, AKA "Biff") and the Wookiee Jedi Padawan Shorrova (aka "Grover") as they attempt to bring down the shield generator that separates their Republic allies from Bridge 242! The epic schooling of Biff in the ways of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game continue.
Unfortunately, the Danimator will be too busy soaking up rays in HAWAII this weekend to participate, so his lovely wife Edwina will be in charge of his character for this session. We think the Wookiee will be in good hands.
You can check out the first part of this session here:

The early days of Superhero themed role playing games is a case study in innovation and collaborative design. At his Advanced Dungeons and Parenting blog Geekerati host Christian Lindke demonstrated some of the influence that Superhero 2044 influenced the Champions roleplaying game's combat system, but the Superhero 2044 rulebook wasn't the only thing to influence the Champions system.
In the first edition of the Champions role playing game book, there is a brief dicsussion of how the game came to be designed. The basic story told in that text is that George MacDonald "had some good ideas for combat and characteristics, but the problem of assigning powers was a difficult one. George met Wayne Shaw at a convention, and saw his point system for distributing superpowers. The current system looks almost nothing like Wayne's original work, but owes much in spirit to Wayne and his group's pioneering work"
Those rules were published in issue 8 of the Southern California based fanzine Lords of Chaos, and we are lucky enough to talk with Wayne about how those rules were designed and get a glimpse into pre-internet era collaboration and innovation.
Yes, Danimator's brother, Mike joins us to make a real man-geek out of ol' Biff as he plays Game Master for Biff's very... first... time! But we're de-virginizing our dear Show Host to Role Paying Games (RPG's) in the best way possible for him... with Star Wars!
But knowing Biff, our hero will probably make some interesting choices in this game to spice things up a bit. Will Biff fall in love with this RPG world... or run screaming into the night? Check it out, folks. You'll probably learn a thing or two about RPG's, also!
Here it is. At long last you will finally be able to hear the best of our interviews from this years Gen Con road trip. We have two absolutely NEW ground braking games for you to learn about directly from the creative teams that were presenting them at the CON. Also, we will talk a bit about some tournaments we were in, how we did, things we wished we hadn't missed and a review of the D20 Burlesque show!!!
So, Vavavavoom, your candy arses into the den and let's go Gen Con one more time !
Where does time go? I can clearly remember picking up my very first boxed set of Dungeons and Dragons waaaay back in 1980. I was absolutely amazed that someone had the brilliant idea of making a set of rules for me to use as a mechanic for telling stories of high adventure. I can remember every player I have ever run, maybe not all their names but their faces. How many hours did we spend huddled around a table, speaking in character, solving puzzles, answering riddles and slaying any monsters stupid enough to get in our way? If someone said to me that I have spent 1000 hours playing D&D I would smile and gladly offer to play 1000 more.
So in celebration of the GRAND DADDY of all RPG's we are going to spend the entire show, okay nearly the entire show, reviewing, sharing and comparing this newest edition of D&D to the older ones. We won't pull any punches either. If it's better we will let you know but if it's simply a shadow of its former self, get ready for a goblin style beat down.
So what are you waiting for? Come on in and grab a chair and let's get our D&D on.
The mid-90s were a creative time in the role playing game industry and a lot of smaller companies were creating not only new games, but new gaming genres. DEADLANDS by Pinnacle Entertainment Group (1996) is one of the most memorable - and one of the best - games to come out of this creative period. The game combined elements of horror and fantasy with the American Western. Even the magic rules involved the use of playing cards as spell casters attempted to "beat the devil" in order to succeed in their incantations.
Fast forward two decades and now DEADLANDS is in development as an Xbox Original television show.
We'll be chatting with Shane Hensley about DEADLANDS, its death, resurrection, and its possible move into pop culture's zeitgeist.
