It's now seventy days hours, seven hours, and seven minutes to The Force Awakens.
Since the number 7 played some iconic role in the Original Trilogy (seven heroes in each of the OT), I would like to share some "news," that many fans already knew in their hearts, but now, thanks to the Disney publishing Warmachine, is now finally canon.
And may have been the only one to get a shot in.
I would awaken a dog, give him 7 levels of Expert, Skill Focus Diplomacy, max out Perception and Profession: Childcare, and viola, never have to worry about a finding a nanny again.
note on link - I am not a father.
Yet while a great deal of material from EU has been moved to Legends, both Imperial Intelligence and the Imperial Security Bureau, powerful but redundant and competing agencies created and detailed by West End Games, (and helped developed in those games by my humble self) are now officially Canon.
Freehold explain this to me.
In the hyper realistic game, you will teach Japanese girl English or an American girl Japanese.

Hi guys and welcome to our Star Wars West End mini adventure!
Thanks for your interest and I hope we will have a little bit of old school fun.
Here is the ruleset we will be using.
Rules I helped edit :)
You are tried and true members of the Rebellion and you will begin the game in a rather familiar setting. I want to keep the where's and what's as a surprise for now but assume you are a members of a crack team led by the best the Rebellion has to offer and you are on a very crucial mission.
Just like all the other times in the past.
Its 4 ABY, most of you should play humans, but I will allow for half the party to be Aliens, and may even allow one member to be an Ewok, but I want that PC to play against type and play the Ewok actually seriously and not just a comic relief.
May The Force Be With You.
Miss Piggy had a cameo in Luke's Dagobah scenes.
And Watto, or at least a Toydarian, can be seen in Labyrinth over a decade before we see him in The Phantom Menace.
Granted! You would love to play some Magic the Gathering but you are currently in the middle of the greatest wildfire in the history of California, and its getting rather hard to breath the thinning air. Your eyes start to go haze yet you cling to the lovely card you hold in your now blistering fingers.
I wish The Force Awakens to turn us all into our 7 year old selves again.
Hi, its about four months until the big show.
I am thinking of running a mini adventure set in the Timeline of the Original Trilogy, using Star Wars West End Games D6.
Any interest? I think the game would run in under 5 months if we all post several times a week.
If there is interest I'll start up a game thread by Wednesday.
1. YOU HAVE TO LOVE STAR WARS!
1.A. YOU HAVE TO LOVE STAR WARS!
2. You have to have some knowledge of the Original Trilogy, enough to get by in a STAR WARS game.
3. You need to have a sense of humor, and be able to banter.
Luke: Same as always.
Han: That bad huh?
May The Force Be With You.
Bless your heart for remembering.
They named a Super Weapon The Tarkin.
It was basically one of the nine Death Star Super Lasers on an armored engine with a Star Destroyer's Command bridge.
Not enough to destroy a whole planet, but enough to shatter the crust and mantle, destroy all life and make it unlivable.
But since that's now EU and part of Legends, I wanted a Canon ship named after the late Grand Moff.
Hullo! That's one of my two theaters of choice! Shin, time for you to meet Baron and Freehold.

Question is, though, do the minions maintain their previous status as hosts of the moot?
They don't have to attack the OotS or the high priests at all.
They simply have to turn the priests of the demigods into vampires and have them vote in favor of Heimdallr/Hel to break the tie.
And I completely forgot that Durkula made minions before coming into the room. They should be along any time now.
I was thinking that the minute I read the line "the priests of the demigods break the tie" followed by Hel's "I do seem to have a certain rapport with some of them, I must admit."
That would definitely explain the need for minions.
Which maintains what I have said, that I would give a hard coin for Rich to write an AP.
And would give 1/3 my soul for him to DM it for me.
Again, the rule here is that there are NO rules, not even that one.
That being said, if we really want to nitpick (as gamers wont to do) The Poetic Elder Edda (which in itself is the modern attribution for an unnamed collection of Old Norse poems rather than a name given to them when they were first created) does NOT list Fenrir as a "god" but rather the scion on Loki (who is both jötunn and "god" being the son of Fárbauti and Laufey). By union with the jötunn Angrboða, Loki sires monsters the Nine Worlds fear. Loki is the father of Hel, the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr. Only Hel can take up the mantle of "god."
By strict 1st Edition D&D rules, as of the original Deities and Demigods Fenrir cannot have followers who can cast spells above 2nd level as Fenrir himself (itself?) cannot grant them.
(How come no one has mentioned that Nergal, who was worshiped by the vampiric lizard, is a Babylonian god?)
Fun fact, in Gary Gygax own original Greyhawk campaign, even while he had his own pantheon, some of the Norse gods did make an appearance due to actions of player characters, so both "divine intervention" and the Norse pantheon have Long standing ties to the games we all love.
the world was super-evocative, and I wouldn't mind playing a Pathfinder rules game set in that world, with an assortment of thematically appropriate green, red, black, white and blue spellcasters.
Ever seen The Flight of Dragons?
Wizards of Green, Blue and Gold (white) do battle against their "brother wizard" who is Red and Black.
Freehold see you there?
Season Two looks like it will start airing in October about the time of Comiccon.
That's....actually remarkably powerful. I saw this stuff in the force unleashed video game but I'd never thought Yoda or any of the movies' force users were ACTUALLY that capable.
Well, again to be fair, I said TIE fighter, not entire TIE Wing, or singular Star Destroyer Captain, not the entire bridge crew. Keep in mind Yoda can spend a Force Point and all his dice DOUBLE. AT 28D6 he will still hit a 50 target number. I can work out the math on another thread if you like.
I was an editor and contributor for Star Wars West End Games, and West End Games was the go to for all the Expanded Universe writers from Zhan to Stackpole before there was a Google, Star Wars.com or Wookieepedia. In fact West End Games was the Wookieepedia of the day, I would say 80 percent of early Wookieepedia fact came from us.
The guy who made it cannon that there are 72 TIEs carried in an Imperial Star Destroyer? That was me. The guy who defined what a Grand Moff was. Ditto.
The name "Magic: The Gathering," well that was Vic Wertz, but he is a Star Wars fanboy.
