Force and Destiny: Jungle in the Sky

17 May 2017 | Hisham | | RPG Actual Play, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

I was finally able to run another role-playing game session for my students for an English Language speaking exercise, the first for this semester. Probably no other games will be run because it is already quite late in the semester for other sessions. Students will be concentrating on their finals.

Although it was technically a Force and Destiny game, we had character types from Edge of the Empire too, thanks to the Legends of the Galaxy pregenerated character sheets.

Blue and red title card?

Force and Destiny:

Jungle in the Sky

The GALACTIC CIVIL WAR rages
across the Empire! Thousands of
suspected rebel agents have been
rounded up and imprisoned by
the IMPERIAL SECURITY BUREAU in
secret prisons across the galaxy.

        Many innocent citizens have disappeared
because of the Empire's evil wrath,
including SENATOR GAR LODOS
from the DURO system.

With little time to spare,
the REBEL ALLIANCE has sent
an extraction team to the
south pole of the planet CANTO BIGHT
to rescue the senator...

 

Bobo Inbound

A Lambda-class T4 shuttle dropped out of hyperspace and an asteroid the size of a mountain stood in its path. The pilot Malea - a Jedi Warrior/Starfighter Ace - was able to swiftly dodge out of its way (thanks to Enhance power that boosted Piloting - Space skill with a Force die). Her passengers, Byt the Twi'lek Technician/Outlaw Tech, Koogik the Rodian Explorer/Big Game Hunter, Merick the Zabrak Jedi Guardian/Armorer, Salporan the Wookiee Technician/Outlaw Tech and Vonnick the Gand Bounty Hunter/Survivalist were nonplussed by the event and went back to whatever they were doing.

Meanwhile the planet Canto Bight shone like a beacon beneath them.

The projector is busted though. Everything is yellow.

There was a Star Wars crawl, but no music because of technical difficulties.

Traffic control contacted them and Salporan answered them in his native Shryiwook language, telling them that the shuttle Bobo requested permission to land at the southern region of the planet. (For some reason, even with the Setback dice the Deception worked.)

Arrival at Ketri Hill

The Bobo flew toward a small with a landing field called Ketri Hill. The shuttle landed and the team disembarked into the frigid morning air, their breaths billowing visibly and blown away by a light wind.

A stormtrooper approached them as they were about to leave the landing field. He said, "Halt! Civillians are not usually allowed to land here. What is your business here?"

Merick stepped forward and told him that they were expected and invited by the Governor here. (Another successful Deceit check with Setback die!) The armoured trooper stepped aside and told them, "Welcome to Ketri Hill. Enjoy your stay."

After they were alone, they considered their first move, which Vonnick immediately insisted to be looking for food. He quickly took the lead and led the team on a merry chase throughout Ketri Hill streets. He came to a stop at a Gand street vendor and started digging in. (Success in Streetwise with...) However the food was inedible for non-Gands, toxic even (...some Threats).

Amani as Byt, Faeezah as Koogik, Nailah as Malea, Adha as Merick, Saiful as Vonnick, Ridzuan as Salporin

The students with their character sheets wonder what in the world is their teacher up to.

"Sorry, guys," said Vonnick as he slurped his soup through a hole in his mask.

One Foot In The Shoe - Not The Other

07 May 2017 | Hisham | | Recent News
 

The human body is an amazing self-repairing machine. It consumes resources around it like oxygen, water and nutrients (usually shoved into pie hole) and allows me to ride this meatsack like John Cusack on John Malkovich.

However, entropy has begun overtaking this unlikely biological Rube Goldberg device I wear. The years have started to reveal cracks in the system. For example, gout is pretty fricking painful. I have known from an academic standpoint that gout can be painful but to endure a whole night of one's toe being smashed in by a sledgehammer at least three times a second is something I never thought I would experience.

I don't belieeeve it.

It took a needle with gout meds to reduce the pain to manageable levels yesterday.

I am just glad to have medical coverage now and very grateful that I did not gravely and acutely require it when we were freefalling without any back in the city.

 

Patreon: City Detectives

30 April 2017 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

We return to the modern age with a new batch of tabletop RPG paper miniatures: law enforcement agents!

Usable with any investigative or espionage settings, like Delta Green or The Laundry to Dark Conspiracy or Unknown Armies. Maybe even Kult.

There are no tiers for this release of paperminis. Neither Pioneer-class nor the Mariner-class. The zip file contains the best level of artwork for the papermini PDF and a six-page full colour character artwork PDF! Which is basically a Voyager-class release!

Download the free PDF files at the Patreon page here.

They need an intro theme

As usual there are six artwork per batch with each artwork having two colour schemes. Some of the artwork might be recognisable as pastiches of famous TV investigators.

I forgot to include a Sledge Hammer! pastiche.

The ghoul is out there

Let's see how the minis interact with past papermini designs. Here a pair of FBI agents working from the basement of the FBI head office faces off with some form of man-eating ghoul... or a chupacabra.

Where's the rest of the team?

A detective from Central City faces off with a pair of cultists.

kowmang gotta die sometime

An investigator who roam the corridors of Ceres in the asteroid belt discovers a saboteur.

Thanks to the patrons on my Patreon who supported me to be able to create these paperminis. Download the free PDF files at the Patreon page here.

 

Comes A Nia Nia

25 April 2017 | Hisham | | Family Pics
 

Rania and family came back to visit us from Kuala Lumpur during the long weekend.

Hello Nia

We picked up Ayah Cik Farid and Cikma from the airport and had dinner with them at Kepala Batas. Nia Nia was asleep when she arrived, but woke up just in time for a meal.

Before the meow

Nia Nia was still groggy from her sleep, but soon got her head back in the game upon spotting a cat and toddling excitedly after it.

This only works in three dimensions

At home, Irfan began teaching her to operate his Rubik's cube. Then suddenly there was a power outage! Thankfully Nia Nia did not give a crap.

Before the nasi goreng

The next day, we went for a dinner at Kuala Perlis.

What's that huge body of water over there?

We hung out at a restaurant across the road from the beach. Ayah Cik Farid showed Nia Nia the incoming tide, and she was impressed (and quite vocal about it too) with the rising tide and the many colours of clouds above Langkawi Island across the bay.

 

SWD6: The Aborted Play Mission

16 April 2017 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Episode Potato

It was not easy to acquire enough free time to run an RPG session these days. So I was very elated to schedule the continuation of Time is the Hunter.

I cleared the coffee table in the living room. I set the map and grid mats. I had the dry erase marker ready for scribbling on the mat. I arranged the paper miniatures as per our cliffhanger ending the last time we played.

It would even be the first time we would use Ain's player character paper miniature on the table!

Then suddenly...

Everybody! Positions!

... I was unable to find the character sheet. Looked in vain for some time, high and low and between unspeakable strata of doom.

So the game session was cancelled and delayed for another time.

Sigh.

 

Tabletop Games Expo at UniMAP

15 April 2017 | Hisham | | Board and Card Games, Recent News, Role Playing Games
 

After almost two years in Perlis, there arose an opportunity to host a tabletop game exhibition here at the university. Gray and Ben both gamers I knew and interacted with online back in Kuala Lumpur were planning a KakiTabletop Northern Tour which would take them from KL to Taiping to Prai to Penang to Perlis and back down to Ipoh before returning to the Klang Valley.

We thought it would be great to hold a tabletop gaming exhibition to introduce tabletop games - boardgames, card games and role-playing games - to the students of this university and the local community. If you remember I even once ran Mini Six for one of my classes last semester as a speaking exercise.

Welcome to the PFI1 college

We were assigned Seminar Room 1 of Tunku Abdul Rahman Residential College.

After proposing the event to the Centre for International Languages, we had the green light to go ahead. With the help of colleagues, we scheduled the Tabletop Games Expo at UniMAP to be held last Friday.

First on the scene

Ain, Irfan and Faezan helped to organise the seminar room before the KakiTabletop crew arrived.

LibreOffice Impress

Meanwhile, I prepped the laptop, projector and the presentation slides.

Darren's ships

We also arrayed the exhibits on the table, like these Star Wars X-Wing Miniature Game pieces.

High fantasy and espionage

Here are my complementary copies of BareBones Fantasy and Covert Ops, both RPGs published in a digest-format by DWD Studios.

Most of what I brung?

A range of RPG books and boardgames I brought. Not much, but regular blog readers might recognise a number of them.

 

Paperminis: Characters from my SWRPG Campaigns

28 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Here are paper miniatures of characters created for my own various Star Wars RPG campaigns for your own use. There is space at their feet on one side of the paperminis to write their names on.

Time is the Hunter characters

L-R: Jax Hunt - human bounty hunter, Iris Helena - human amnesiac

Note: Iris Helena is based on Helena on Orphan Black.

Edged by the Empire characters

L-R: Giin Lawquane - human mercenary, Hondo Pash - human smuggler, Yuzy Pash - human kid, Numa - Twi'lek soldier

Note: Numa is the same Numa that appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and later (after her appearance in this campaign) popped up in Star Wars Rebels.

Modesty Blazing characters

L-R: John Tray'Essek - Trandoshan hired gun/marauder, Qillian Ryn - Trianii bounty hunter/assassin, VAX-11/750 - technician/slicer, Vendrik - Duros spy/infiltrator, Nora Romanova - human smuggler/scoundrel, Darter Kel - Zeltron explorer/scout

Note: VAX-11 body design is based on robots seen in the movie Elysium. Nora's clothes are based on costume from The Dirty Pair anime. All of Darter's weapons and gear are on him even if they are not visible.

Please head on over to my Patreon site for more paper miniature downloads covering many genres. Lots of free PDFs for you to download, print and assemble!

 

Paperminis: KX-series Security Droids

26 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Alan Tudyk made the role of K-2SO the reprogrammed Imperial security droid from Rogue One a memorable one. If you require paper miniatures of him or other KX-series droids for your Star Wars RPG campaign, download and assemble the one I made here.

They are all leaves upon the wind

Click here to download the free KX-series Imperial security droid PDF from Google Drive here.

Please check out my Patreon site for other non-Star Wars paper miniature downloads. Some free PDF sets are readily available too.

 

Paperminis: BB-series Astromech Droids

25 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

BB-8 the spherical rolling astromech unit belonging to Poe Dameron is quite the popular droid. Finally I had gotten around to making paper miniatures of its type of droid for your Star Wars RPG campaign.

Ben Schwartz/Bill Hader voicework non included

Obviously the scale is wrong because a 20-30mm scale football sized figure would not be worth printing out and making into a papermini.

All Night's Black Agents Artwork on the Blog

28 February 2017 | Hisham | | Artwork, Nights Black Agents, Role Playing Games
 

The other RPG campaign I played in more-or-less regularly with the Gamers of Kuala Lumpur crew is Night's Black Agents where we played an group of international freelance agents with contacts with various countries' espionage network who were embroiled in a plot to take over the world. With dogs. Who might be sentient vampires. Also, an infectious hemovirus pathogen.

Here are all the drawings I made for various actual play reports I wrote for the campaign on this blog.

Abraham Von Helsing and Abraham Lincoln the ovcharkas

These were our pets and early warning system, the two Abrahams.

The artist in question might not have been in his or her right mind, but in context this was true.

A banner year

The campaign banner

So many other occurences that I did not during various earlier gmaing sessions before I started writing the play reports, such as...

  • Cable tumbling down Olympus Mons for two sessions -- at least
  • the team breaking Hokusai out of a sushi bar
  • driving with neo-chimpanzee trucker BJ the Bear
  • that time Bishop was sleeved in the neo-corvid morph (a.k.a the "chicken suit") for a reconnaissance mission at the 2309 Mr. Spock asteroid habitat in the Belt which turned into a one-man battle scenario while the others watched remotely from their ship
  • and that one time the team travelled to a protected section at the centre of Mars, discovered a Pandora Gate there and accidentally activated an alien device that gave the red planet a brand new magnetosphere.

Sadly, these happened before I began writing actual play reports in earnest here, so many a detail has been lost into dim memory, like tears in the acid rain. Good times, good times.

Local Freelancing is a Pain

18 February 2017 | Hisham | | Rants
 

When I started out freelancing - illustration freelancing - I had a mix of local and foreign customers. It would not be long before I decided to drop all local customers except one.

Local businesses, it seems to me, disregard freelancing work as non-serious work. One works at home at one's own time, I suppose, so why would we want take you seriously. If one was serious with work, then one should have studied to become a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer... they probably figure.

The problem here is that whatever the case businesses need freelancers to work for them. But because of they regard freelance work, it would take many phone calls and many weeks to get paid after the job is done. The usual excuse would be because of company procedures and bureaucracy.

So many years have passed since I stopped taking local freelance commissions.

Until now.

 

A Homemade Gamemaster's Notebook

10 February 2017 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 
The printout

Irfan has now taken up bookbinding as a hobby so I thought I would commission from him a small gamemaster's notebook for me. I printed out the cover design at the print shop on blue paper and gave it to him. The cover was designed quickly using Inkscape and saved as a pdf.

The printout

Irfan stacked and folded some blank A4-sized papers for the interior pages.

The printout

He carefully measured where the staples were supposed to go on the spines.

The printout

Then he stapled the spine of the folded papers together carefully onto an eraser and bent the staple legs inward manually.

The printout

Here is the notebook almost done.

The printout

All that is needed to be done is to slice the extra piece of paper away for a flat edge.

The printout

The notebook is now ready for me to write in to continue our Time is the Hunter Star Wars RPG campaign that I am gamemastering. Perhaps I will follow up this blog entry with another when I have filled up the notebook with notes, stats and sketches in the future.

 

Bahasa Melayu X-Wing Connection

09 February 2017 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

In West End Games' The Star Wars Sourcebook (1987) written by Bill Slavicsek there is a four-page technical write-up on the X-wing fighter. The text is an order of magnitude more detailed than any other write-up on the Incom T-65 X-wing ever written and filled with an abundance of elements that can be adapted and used by gamemasters for any Star Wars RPG scenario.

What has been vexing me for a quarter of a century are several "Star Wars-esque" non-English words used in the book for names of equipment make and manufacturers. Even if the spelling does not reflect it, when they appear to be transliterated words from my own native Malay language.

Tana Ire and Melihat

Tana Ire and Melihat are both flight sensor manufacturers who have developed sensory equipment for the X-wing fighter.

Malay: Tanah Air, (IPA:/tanah air/) literally "soil and water", meaning "motherland". The Tana Ire electro photoreceptor needs to scans water and land below the X-wing to be an effective terrain following sensor.

Malay: Melihat, (IPA:/məlihat/) is translated as "seeing", with the me- prefix of the word lihat making it the present participle of the verb "see" - but not a gerund. Never a gerund. A sensor sees, you see.

Bertriak

Bertriak is a manufacturer of the "Screamer" sensor jammer. Malay: Berteriak (IPA:/bərtəriaʔ/) is a derivative verb from the work teriak, which means crying, or screaming. Is this not how jammers work anyway?

Taim & Bak

Taim & Bak is a manufacturer of ship-based weaponry, specifically the KX-9 on the X-wing and the IX-4 on the Y-wing. Malay: Tembak (IPA:/tembaʔ/) is literally "shoot". This corporation would have been literally named "shoot" if not for the ampersand between the two syllables.

Chepat

Chepat - renamed Chempat in later sources for some reason - manufactured the "Defender" shield projectors. Malay: Cepat (IPA:/t͡ʃəpat/) is "quick" or "fast". Perhaps the Defender shieds are quickly deployed in battle - I dunno... I got nothing.

Kuat

While cepat translates as "quick", another manufacturer elsewhere in the book translates as "strong", namely kuat, as in Kuat Drive Yards based in the Kuat system. Kuat is definitely a strong presence in the lore of Star Wars with many vehicles designed by it, including the Imperial Star Destroyers we see on screen.

Also, I ran a small RPG campaign in the Kuat system once.

I wonder if there are other Malay words hidden within the non-English proper names in the Star Wars Sourcebook, perhaps hidden by transliteration of the word. So now the question is: is all of this a coincidence, or did Bill Slavicsek have a Malay dictionary with him when he was writing the article up?

Addendum

23 February 2017

After this article was published, I thought I should email a query to Bill Slavicsek with a link to the post. Shortly after, he graciously answered:

Turns out my co-author Curtis Smith traveled to Malaysia and other locations as a child with his missionary parents. He wrote the X-wing section and must have snuck in those words when I wasn't looking. I thought he just made them up! Even after all these years, I'm still learning new things about my Star Wars Sourcebook!

And there we have it. Thanks for the clarification, Bill Slavicsek!

 

Kangar Street Art Photos

04 February 2017 | Hisham | | Artwork, Recent News
 

I was busy all through to the end of 2016 that I was oblivious to stuff happening in Kangar. For example, I recently discovered an alley near the centre of town which had been adorned by colourful streetart apparently painted by schoolchildren from all over Malaysia.

I thought I would take a couple of photos for documentation's sake, because this must have been a really fun event for the attendees.

The title artwork as one enters the alley.

This one looks pretty lively.

It appears one of the artist is a student from Irfan's school.

Deep Dive into WEG Lore: Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide

23 January 2017 | Hisham | | Books, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

After receiving it as an early birthday present from Ivan earlier, this month I discovered that DK Publishing's Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide (UVG) by Pablo Hidalgo which fills the Star Wars universe as seen in Rogue One with a multitude of world-building details, was also a treasure trove of lore which originated from West End Games.

West End Games (WEG) published the Star Wars roleplaying game series of books from 1987 until 1998 or thereabouts after which the licence went to Wizards of the Coast. In that decade or so, the game company had created and populated the Star Wars universe with hundreds (if not thousands) of worldbuilding details enough for gamemasters and players to play in the setting without having to create, for example, the Imperial DMV. Similarly, species, location and technology (and corporations that made these technologies) were named and fleshed out.

Which brings us to the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide. Pablo Hidalgo was a freelance writer for West End Games and an experienced Star Wars RPG gamemaster. Instead of reinventing the wheel, a lot of minutae created by WEG have been included in the Rogue One UVG, which means that at one point or another, these details have been used by a multitude of Star Wars RPG gamemasters and players in their own campaigns. See the Chandrila section below for an example of my own.

Here is a (incomplete) list of items featured in the UVG and created earlier in various WEG rulebooks, sourcebooks and periodicals according to their appearances in the UVG from front to back.

Pretormin Environmental

Chandrila

Hanna City or Nayli Spaceport?

Not only has Chandrila been identified as Mon Mothma's homeworld by West End Games in their first roleplaying sourcebook, but I also ran a game session back in the late 80s where my rebel agents manage to avert a bioweapon attack there. Also time of writing, my current players (okay, just Ain and Irfan) are stuck in a cliffhanger and a deadly standoff there in an ongoing Star Wars D6 campaign.
