Star Wars Resistance: Season 1 Episode 7: Signal from Sector Six

        Well, another week passes and we've got another episode of Star Wars: Resistance to review, Star Wars Resistance: Season 1 Episode 7: Signal from Sector Six. The spoiler free review is that this episode seems more like part of the Star Wars universe than the others, but it's characterisation of the main character is still poor, and the plot doesn't make sense when you think about it, although at times it does look quite pretty.

Stan Lee: Rest in Peace

        Still coming to terms with the sad news of the passing of Stan the Man himself, Stan Lee. I believe today will be a day filled with personal stories, as although most of us never had the pleasure of meeting Stan, he's been such a mainstay of geek culture for so long, that so many of us have formed formed a relationship with his work which is personal to us.
        When I was just a child, and more into watching TV than reading, even reading comics, I like many boys adored Superheroes. But at the time there were only 2 superhero shows broadcasting, the always fantastic Wonder Woman live action series with Lynda Carter, and Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, cartoon series, which would be shown on a sunday afternoon as part of Glen Michaels Cartoon Cavalcade, and for me it was the highlight of a sunday afternoon.
        The show was introduced by Stan Lee, it's been too many years for me to remember whether it was every episode, or just the pilot episode, and whether it was an animated Stan or live action. But my memories are of Stan talking about the adventures of Spider-man, how Peter Parker went through ordinary struggles like you or me, as well as obviously his more spectacular ones against the likes of Doctor Doom or the Green Goblin. I remember Stan talking about making moral choices, and the trials of just being normal, never mind being extra-ordinary. I remember Stan not only creating this superhero, but also presenting him to us, him being as excited as a 5 year old me at the latest adventures.
        And that's the relationship through the years, Stan was always comic book's best cheerleader, not only a creator but a fan. And as the years went on, his appearances continued, Stan's Bullpen in the back of the comics was always a great read, he obviously never took himself too seriously, as his appearance in Mallrats, and even as a bus driver in Heroes.
        And we come to the latest era, where he's received true recognition for his work as movies based on his works top the charts for the past decade, and each movie carries his cameo, always a wonderful little gem which usually gets a "Oh, look, there's Stan, from my wife or kids", putting a smile on our faces like we're seeing an old friend, and we were.
        And now it's over, soon we'll get a Marvel movie without a Stan Lee cameo which is almost too much to bear, I hope they've got a few to keep using, even if it's just posters in the background like in the Netflix Marvel series.

        So, thanks Stan. Thank you for being there for a geeky kid and showing us it was alright to like comic books, because this grown up did. Thank you for so many great and relatable characters, the comics of which I've collected over the years. Thanks for so many great moments, from discussing Secret Wars with my eldest son, when he was only 5, to sitting with my family all of us enjoying the movies that originated from you. You were an absolute gem of a man, and we'll all live in your shadow for decades to come.

Retro RPG: Paranoia

        This week we look at the Roleplaying Game of a darkly humorous future.
        The Computer is your friend, Trust No One and Keep your Laser Handy, Paranoia is set in Alpha Complex, surviving a nuclear war it protects it's inhabitants from mutants and the commie menace.
        However, it's unaware of two things, what commies are! and that all of the clones in Alpha complex are mutants.
        The players play Troubleshooters, who find trouble and shoot it, each hiding their mutation and secret society affiliation from each other, the discovery of which will lead to termination.
        Basically trying to out their team-mates as commie traitors, before they themselves are outed. A chaotic game, where death is common (but it's okay, you're a clone, so quickly replaced by an identical copy), and player conflict isn't discouraged, it's actually the aim of the game.

        A few additions to the site today, based on the subject of yesterdays review, Star Wars Rebels: Season 4 Episode 10: Jedi Night. Today I've added, Force Stasis to the Star Wars D/6 The Force Section, Kanan Jarrus to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section, and the Loth-bat to the Star Wars D/6 Creatures Section of the Site.

        As he leaves the series, I've added Kanan today, and usually I leave every character until their final appearance in the show, but as we get to the last few, instead of having a massive dump of all the main characters, I'll try to split them over the final few episodes.

Top Five Cyberpunk RPGs

        Probably should have uploaded this, it's shorter than I intended, and the voiceover is really patchy, but it's a bit of a proof of concept for a new series of videos over on the RPGGamer YouTube channel, anyway, so here is our Top Five Cyberpunk RPG's.

Star Wars Resistance: Season 1 Episode 6: The Children from Tehar

        We've put up our review of the next episode of Resistance, Star Wars Resistance: Season 1 Episode 6: The Children from Tehar. As usual, it's filled with spoilers, so the spoiler free review is, "At least we're now getting some progress in the main plot of the series, but it's all a little too coincidental in it's happenings, and Kez is finally getting some respect. But it's still a fairly poor and childish version of Star Wars."

Remember, remember the fifth of November,

Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.

By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!

Retro RPG: The Babylon Project

        This week I present the first of the Babylon 5 Role Playing Games, published in 1997 by Chameleon Eclectic, the publishers of Millenniums End.
        It's an interesting game, with a very odd rules mechanic, a very peculiar licencing agreement (they had the licence to Babylon 5, but none of the actors images, so use stills from the series for space scenes, but artwork for all the characters and internal scenes). It's the first game I've done which I really don't recommend, unless you're a Babylon 5 completist.

        Today a few additions to the site, based on the subject of yesterdays review, Star Wars Rebels: Season 4 Episode 6: Flight of the Defender. Today we've added the Sienar Fleet Systems TIE/D Defender Elite to the Star Wars D/6 Starships Section, the Loth-wolf to the Star Wars D/6 Creatures Section, and the Imperial airfield to the Star Wars D/6 Planets and Places Section of the Site.
        The Imperial Airfield is a little bit different, as I wanted to add it as a place that the Empire deploys to worlds, that player characters might attack. The game already has the Imperial Garrison Base, but that is massive construction which has hundreds of troops and Walkers. This is a much smaller facility, which players might infiltrate, steal fuel or equipment from, a target that a team of a half dozen player characters could successfully deal with.

DnDSports

        I commented a few weeks ago about D&D entering eSports, and they've already announced the form it will take, and the press release is below.
        Now, I've read it through, and this relates as much to D&D, as kicking as the Super Bowl relates to kick a ball around in your back yard.
        It really looks as if the eSports version of D&D is going to be a spectator sport, and therefore they've lost me. I don't watch other people play sports, although I've enjoyed playing in the past. I don't watch other people play video games, although I enjoy playing them. And the idea of watching other people play D&D seems boring as hell.
        Anyway, as I said, the press release is below, and if watching people earn money from playing a game is something you enjoy, then maybe it's for you.

        Imagine if two parties fighting for opposite sides found themselves in the same dungeon. It’s kill or be killed. What will they do to survive?
        DnDSports is the first online D&D Tournament in a cooperative Party vs Party setting from EncounterRoleplay & DnDBeyond with a grand prize of $5,000. Over the course of 4 weeks, 16 players will compete in teams of 4 in single elimination games. Each game is a best of 3 arena battle and played via Roll20.

How is it Played?
        The full rules for DnDSports will be released shortly after our next round of Playtesting. We don’t claim to have created perfect balance, nor is that our aim, as every competitive game has an element of strategy. We’re also implementing MOBA-esque mechanics such as a Pick/Ban phase to help expand the strategy. We’ve been working closely with over a dozen talented DMs to create 15 pre-generated characters from which the players will choose, and adapt the pre-existing Dungeons & Dragons: 5th Edition rules.

        We know that this will be an incredibly fun new way to play D&D, because as long as you’re having fun, you’re doing it right!

When is it?
        Day 1: November 10th at 12pm PST
        Heat 1: Team Beholder vs. Team Mindflayer

        Day 2: November 17th at 12pm PST
        Heat 2: Team Kobold vs. Team Tarrasque

        Day 3: November 24th at 12pm PST
        All Stars Charity game for 826LA foundation

        Day 4: December 1st at 12pm PST
        Grand Finals

Where can I watch it?
        Watch live on Twitch here.
        The VODs will be uploaded to Youtube here.

Who is involved?
        The EncounterRoleplay & DnDBeyond crews have teamed up to bring this production to life!
        As for who’s competing? Keep an eye on the DnDSports Twitter & here on the blog to learn more about the teams as they are revealed!

But D&D Shouldn’t be an eSport?!
        It’s not an eSport. We created something that would make competitive gamers feel safe and comfortable trying out D&D5e for the first time. It’s a new way to display the versatility of combat in D&D5e in a unique setting. We encourage you to respect the way different people play D&D because we know that this will be a fun event and there is no wrong to play D&D, as long as you are having fun!
