Irfan’s Player Character Saves The Day

Irfan played his first complete Star Wars Role-Playing Game adventure today, as everyone’s favourite intrepid astromech droid Artoo-Detoo.

He even role-played Artoo well by having in-character conversations in regular robotic beeps. We played on the living room carpet and I […]
