Falling Star #1 Star Wars D6 RPG: Gaming Philosophy

This is our first episode where I discuss what makes a Roleplaying Session "Star Warsy," and discuss some of my pet peeves when it comes to bad storytelling, bad GM'ing and get into the meat of what makes a good Star Wars story.  Our actual play sessions will start with Falling Star #3, but  this will give those who are interested a bit of a peek behind the curtain.

Falling Star #2 Star Wars D6 RPG: Building a Starring Character

This is the second of our introductory or bonus episodes. Here, Stephanie and I discuss the development of one of our PCs. Since character relationships will be critical to this campaign, I felt it necessary to hammer out some details of the characters in a recorded format so that people can see a little bit of what's going on behind the scenes. Our actual play sessions Start with Podcast #3

Falling Star #11 Mailbagish

Sorry folks. No new play session this week, just a mailbag episode. We'll get a play session in a week or two, and hopefully get the rest of our episodes fairly regularly. Our issue has been partially one of scheduling and partially one of casting.

Until then, I answer a few of the questions that have been sent my way the last few weeks.

This episode is subtitled: “Singing of the Empire (in all the wrong places)”

Please feel free to email comments to swfallingstar@gmail.com

Apologies to our listeners for the hiatus. I'm a full time student, full time employee and full time parent. Editing audio sometimes has to take a back seat to my non-recreational activities.  This episode is really more of a dénouement than anything.

edit: Because numbers are hard.
