What happens when you play an RPG that's action/combat heavy with a non-combatative character? It's an interesting question I've wanted to explore.
I'm playing an R2 unit in a Dark Times campaign, watching the seeds of Rebellion be sown around me. There's a soldier and a Jedi in the group and there's plenty of combat action, thanks to our awesome GM.
I'm playing a character who doesn't want to kill, and he hasn't yet. Being an R2 unit reinforces this for me as it is very difficult to even hold a weapon, much less use one. But this makes it difficult for the other players in the group, since I'm not actively fighting.
The things my character does to help the group are to change the environment or the conditions of combat to make it easier for my friends. So it's easier for them to take out...

It's been a few months and now it's time to get back into action. Since Wizard's announcement about the future of the RPG and Minis line, several posters at d20 Radio have decided to put together a New Republic Campaign Guide. This is a fan-made sourcebook and looks to be awesome when it's done. You can take a look at the thread for it here...
If you'd like to contribute, please contact Oldscool at the d20Radio forums. Comments are always welcome!
Here's a copy of Luke during the Jedi Academy trilogy that I wrote up for it.
Luke Skywalker, Head of the Jedi Praxeum
After the Battle of Endor, Luke Skywalker was kept very busy for the next few years, at first serving as a general in the New Republic at Bakura and Mindor, then retiring his commission and working on honing his skills as a...

We just completed Episode 5 of my Star Wars Legacy Campaign.
Tal Voxx gets a communication from his droid, Ehn-Cee Seventeen that due to an error on his part communcation with the Nimrod was jammed, this caused an additional problem that the Sith Star Destroyer Torment was not detected by the planets defense forces early enough so everyone is surprised that a Star Destroyer entered the system undetected.
The plus side was that the Sith recon team was unable to report about the Kamino clone facility on the planet Nikarb III. Taal warns the Nimrod of the Sith ship and promptly leaves the ship too its fate and meets up with his droid to go and rescue his companions who have no idea they need rescue.
Details of the Sith ship are that it is a new prototype with two powerful laser cannons that...

Welcome to the Post Halloween Blog Post! Yeah it's dorky I know...
I was poking about on the internets and found this webpage: Top 10 Ghost Ships
This is a cool Halloween post so I thought it would be interesting to talk about Ghost Ships in your game.
What makes a ghost ship, well, ghostly? In the case of the article above, it usually demands mysterious circumstances, the total or near-loss of all crew and passengers, and (usually) the sinking of the ship. Not all these conditions are necessarily met, but the more the better. For example the Mary Celeste lost all hands but was found in relatively good condition, totally abandonned.
In your game, mysterious circumstances could be magical or physical. Imagine the ship Event Horizon from the film of the same name. Something came...

Last night we played in our awesome Dark Times game. I'm playing an R2 unit with a vocoder, which I selectively use. In this game, we are under the thumb of the Empire because we witnessed (and ultimately operated) prototype Top-Secret Imperial hardware (in this case, the Alpha Xg-1 Star Wing Assault Gunboat).
Reluctantly in their service, our group defends a helpless city against attacks from resistance fighters against the Empire. Our group ends up having to take a large group of them to another planet to safety, but they are still not out of the hot water yet.
During the session, a young girl comes to ask us questions about what is going on. My comrades seem at a loss for words so I comfort the girl with kind words and a promise to help. Despite my droidness, the girl seems comforted....
