SWD6: Point of Entry

Time is the Hunter Episode 01: Point of Entry I figured it was time to return to the source from whence my interest of simulationist/narrativist tabletop games originated: Star Wars The Roleplaying Game once published by West End Games and run using the D6 system.

Captain Ithano

My second Star Wars The Force Awakens fan art is Captain Ithano a.k.a. the Crimson Corsair. He holds in his arm a guidebook for becoming a pirate or a privateer. (A letter of marque is required for the latter choice.) Here’s a close up of the book he’s carrying which I painted from scratch using a photo of the actual […]

Those Stories About What Happened…

I might have overdone it with the “Those Stories About What Happened” meme adapted from the latest Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer, pertaining to West End Games’ Star Wars The Roleplaying Game material. It probably what Han would tell these kids about the Galactic Civil War shenanigans as played by Star Wars D6 RPG players. First, here is a […]

Paper Minis: Assassin Droids

But how do droids consume hashish?! The Eliminator 434 assassin droid was statted up from a concept art in West End Games’ Star Wars Sourcebook. The IG-86 sentinel droid appeared in multiple episodes of Star Wars The Clone Wars. Since IG-88 is (more or less) unique, I gather they had to come up with a new type of droid that resembles […]
