You Build the Character

Hi everyone.

This is just a thread to raise awareness of the You Build the Character contests I run in the Praxeum (yeah, I know, I'm a shameless self-promoter Wink). Basically, YBtC is a monthly competition where board members submit their Saga Edition builds for iconic Star Wars characters.

This thread will be updated every time that a new contest begins, and when voting is open.

If you'd like to see the past winners of YBtC, check out the Hall of Fame.

Here is a list of the contests so far, with links to the thread for each one:



If you have any suggestions for future contests, you can post them in the Hall of Fame, or email youbuildthecharacter@yahoo.co.uk.

If you haven't heard it already, Episode 135 of the Order 66 Podcast has a shout out to You Build the Character. I want to thank GM Chris and GM Dave for this honour.

And if you don't listen to the Order 66 Podcast, then you should. Those guys love Saga Edition, and always put on an entertaining show. They also frequently have the game designers as guests (and Sam Witwer of Force Unleashed and Battlestar Galactica fame).

Not that I would know though. I never listen to the Order 66 Podcast. Wink
