Star Wars Monday: X-Wing ep. 1

Introduction

Greetings, cadet.  My name is Andrew but you may also refer to me by my designated Imperial serial number (ok, it’s actually the username on all of my social media accounts): FRFC3S.  First of all, I would like to thank Ready to Role for picking up my content and providing a platform for my content to reach even more readers and hopefully encourage some crossover between the different game universes promoted on this site.  As a kid, I liked Star Wars, but my tabletop gaming experience started with Wizards of the Coast’s Pokemon and Decipher’s Young Jedi CCGs around 1998-1999.  Shortly thereafter, during the Urza’s Block, I got into a little game called Magic: the Gathering.  After a good bit of fumbling around, I played Type I (now called Vintage?) until I quit Magic after winning a Darksteel prerelease flight, selling all of my cards, and buying a car.  Read More

Creating Your Own Homebrew Pantheon – Part 1

To me, there is nothing more satisfying than running a game in a world you created yourself. Your cities, your countries, your cultures- your everything!
