Things Obi-Wan Never Told Me - May the Fourth Be With You!

Things Obi-Wan Never Told Me - May the Fourth Be With You!

May 4th, 2015

Published by: Jeff Hall

Today is May the Fourth, or Star Wars Day as many now refer to it. I heard someone on the radio this morning say it was one of the silliest things he had heard of in a long time. That really bothered me on many levels. Star Wars is a full on cultural phenomenon at this point in history. For over 30 years, it has captured the hearts and minds of millions of people. It is one of the largest grossing properties out there, and practically everyone in the country knows what you are talking about when you mention it. How is that silly? In a time when geek culture has reached a level of mainstream, something like Star Wars (which is already mainstream) is an even better way to bring people together. But enough about that - it's Star Wars Day! This[...]

RPG Lab Report - Fiasco

RPG Lab Report - Fiasco

March 31st, 2015

Published by: Jeff Hall

I once saw Fiasco designer Jason Morningstar speak on a panel while I was attending DragonCon. He was sitting up there with a bunch of pretty serious designers including Richard Garfield and Monte Cook. He was the fourth person to introduce himself and instead of a resume he simply said “Hello. I’m Jason Morningstar. I’m here to destroy RPGs as we currently understand them.” After this month’s RPG Lab and its two great games of Fiasco, I welcome his apocalyptic vision.[...]

Things Obi-Wan Never Told Me: Episode 3

I have a lot of stuff I want to talk about this time! Well, two items, but I suspect I’ll be rambling for a while. First: I saw a feat during the March 2015 store event at Games and Stuff that, had someone told me I’d see it, I would have laughed at them and said “nonsense!” What was that feat? I watched an 86 point, two-ship build win the event. Yep, a list running with effectively an outrageous 14 point handicap not only won the event, but never lost a ship, and twice table-wiped the other squadron. It was undoubtedly helped that many of our regulars were ‘away’ at an official Store Championship so that it only had to do battle three times – but it was still most impressive.[...]
