So, just over a year ago we released our Solo: A Star Wars Story OpenD6 RPG, and it's been downloaded quite a bit (some 4000 times). Well it takes some time to put a book like this together, which takes me away from daily updates.
So the opinion I'm looking for is whether I should do more of these books? I'd orignally wanted to do an Entire Clones Wars Sourcebook, A Rebels Sourcebook, and a Marvel Star Wars Sourcebook. Now the Marvel book is the one I've got planned out best, with each story getting its own section, with stats and characters embedded within each story. My plan for the Clone Wars book was for it to be another full set of rules, this time including the force, so you'd have a book to use if you just wanted to game during the Clone Wars without having all the Galactic Civil war material in it as well.
Anyway, let me know what you think about these books, and whether you think it's a good use of my time?
Star Wars Resistance: Season 2 Episode 4: Hunt on Celsor 3
Well another week another episode of Resistance, and this weeks is Star Wars Resistance: Season 2 Episode 4: Hunt on Celsor 3. The TLDR; Review this week, it's pretty darn good, flawed in some areas, but lacking most of the problems Resistance had in its first season, and definitely one I recommend.
And so, after 11 months of updates, we finally reach the final story published by Marvel for Star Wars during their original run of comics (1977-1986), Star Wars Monthly 159: Blind Fury!. So today we've added Rur to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section, the Soul snare to the Star Wars D/6 Equipment Section, and Garn to the Star Wars D/6 Planets & Places Section of the Site.
So what's next ? ? ?
Well, there's been a bunch of requests that I start working my way through the Tales of the Jedi and Knights of the Old Republic series of comics from Dark Horse. Which is a definite possibility, as I absolutely adore those. My only concern is that those comics are longer than what I've been doing, and since they're a totally new setting, there would be so much to stat out, so I might have to change my pattern of updates, to have two days of stats between each review. . . .
Anyway, firstly, I'm going to take my week off as I usually do between seasons of shows and series of comics (although normal business will continue with videos and Resistance reviews). And then I'll be back with a fresh plan, and some new content for you to peruse.

Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 RPG's available on the Nintendo Gamecube.
Again we've gone to a public poll for this system, as at the time it was out I was but a poor student, and totally missed the opportunity to own one of these systems, even though there were loads of titles I'd grown to love on the SNES and N64 which received sequels on the Gamecube that I'd have love to have owned at the time.
The Nintendo GameCube was released by Nintendo in Japan and North America in 2001 and Europe and Australia in 2002. The sixth-generation console is the successor to the Nintendo 64. and competed with Sony's PlayStation 2, Microsoft's Xbox, and Sega's Dreamcast.
Star Wars Resistance: Season 2 Episode 3: Live Fire
Well another week, another episode of Resistance, so I've watched and reviewed it as normal, Star Wars Resistance: Season 2 Episode 3: Live Fire. The TLDR review is, it's a bit of a slip back into the bad habits of the first season, with Kazuda being insulted and disrespected by people who should know better by this time.
In 1987, a small team of designers at TSR led by David "Zeb" Cook began work on the second edition of the AD&D game, which would take two years to complete. In 1989, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition was published, featuring new rules and characters.
Whoops, I just realised when I was preparing for tomorrows update that I'd totally skipped the planets the last issue. So today I've added, Attahox & Daalang to the Star Wars D/6 Planets & Places Section of the Site.
Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 RPG's available on Steam.
Steam is the biggest video game digital distribution service platform and was developed by Valve Corporation and launched in 2003, the range of games old and new available on the platform is staggering. The steam sales are especially worthy of mentioning, as they are the perfect way to pick up older games at extremely discounted prices, and I have picked up games I normally wouldn't have considered paying full price for, at just a few pounds, and had hours and hours of great gaming.
Once again we've gone to an online poll for results, which has surprised us with some choices we would never have considered.
I'm going to be doing a bunch of D&D stuff over the next few weeks since I'm really getting back into the game, after not Dungeon Mastering it for over 30 years. So here we are with the very first D&D thing I owned.
This pamphlet was released by TSR, the publishers of D&D and AD&D (Advanced Dungeons and Dragons) to prepare people for the upcoming release of AD&D 2nd Edition in 1989. It tries to calm people's concerns that this is a totally different game, and help them understand that it's just a clarification and reorganisation of the rules to aid play.
Hello and Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 RPG's on the original X-Box.
The Xbox was the first instalment in the Xbox series of consoles manufactured by Microsoft and was released as their first foray into the gaming console market on November 15, 2001, in North America, followed by Australia, Europe and Japan in 2002. It is classified as a sixth generation console, competing with Sony's PlayStation 2 and Nintendo's GameCube. It was also the first console produced by an American company since the Atari Jaguar ceased production in 1996.
Cyberspace is a cyberpunk role-playing game published by Iron Crown Enterprises and using a somewhat modified version of their Spacemaster ruleset.
The primary setting of Cyberspace is the urban sprawl around San Francisco in the year 2090.
The game was written by Tod Foley, who also worked on a number of Iron Crown's Spacemaster supplements. The game was out of print and unavailable for a number of years around the turn of the millennium, but is now available, with all of its supplements, from the publisher's homepage in a PDF format.
Okay, I took a couple of days off over the weekend as I felt under the weather with a cold, so todays update actually is based on the subject of fridays review, Star Wars Weekly 113: The Guardian of Forever Part 1. Today we've added The Sentinel to the Star Wars D6 Creatures Section of the Site.
Now I'm definitely going to be scrambling a bit for content for the final two parts of this story, as I've pretty much covered everything in the next issues already. So guess I'll have to go back and see if there's anything I've missed from older issues.
Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 Tabletop RPG's.
So, this is a controversial one, while everyone's got their favourite video games on different consoles, most people can respect other opinions, but with Tabletop RPG's people invest serious amounts of time and effort into their chosen game, writing character backgrounds, shaping the worlds, making content, so this is a more personal decision.
Now we could just list our favourite RPG's, which to tell the truth wouldn't really match up with the list we're about to run down, but if did that, it would attract a lot of criticism as there's only so many times we can rave about Star Wars D6, but it would just be our personal opinion anyway.
So what we did was arranged a poll on one of the larger polling sites, and then we waited, and a few long weeks later we got the results the quantity of which blew us away.
We got back a list of over 100 different RPG's, and 10's of thousands of votes cast, which was amazing. So after a bit of processing to account for different editions of RPG's, and some reading, as a bunch of them we'd never even heard of, we assembled this list. The contents of which didn't really surprise us, but we certainly didn't expect them in this order.
