    We've been having a lot of trouble over the last few months with bogus spammers hitting the site and creating fake registrations. In fact, there have been so many bogus registrations that it's drowning out the few legitimate registrations we are getting. If you are trying to register for the site and don't get back a timely response, please e-mail me at moridin {at} swrpgnetwork {dot} com and please use the phrase "SWRPGNetwork" in both the subject line and the message body to ensure that it gets past my spam filters. Make sure you mention your account name too, so I can verify it for you. ...

    Just a quick update to let everyone know that we have opened a forum on the Holonet for discussion of the Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars RPG, including the Edge of the Empire game (currently in beta as of this writing). You can find the forum here. ...

    Just a quick note, we have reopened the registration system fully following our upgrades this year. This is going to be a trial to see if our anti-spambot mechanisms are working, but for now there will no longer be a waiting period for user validation. So, if you've been looking to sign up for the site, now is the time to do so! ...

    If you're seeing this message, you can probably tell that there are a lot of changes to the site. We've just undertaken a project to upgrade the software running the site, including the software running the HoloNet forums. While much of the technical work is done, we've got a long way to go getting the site back up and running at full capacity, with its content available to everyone.

    Well, after too long an outage, we're back. I'd like to thank Grayson Armage Bedar Shepard and Kris Eclipse Vanderwater for all their help in getting the site back up. I couldn't have done it without their help.

    Anyways, after this little experience we'll be looking to do some upgrades to improve stability, so hopefully this won't happen again. ...

    Please forgive the personal announcement, but I figured that site visitors would likely want to know about this. I have recently accepted a position as a full time designer for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game at Wizards of the Coast. I'm moving out to Seattle to work in the Wizards offices as a full-time employee, helping write and direct the Star Wars RPG line and assisting on the Star Wars miniatures line. Though it's a daunting prospect to move across the country, I feel confident that I'll be able to adapt. Additionally, since I'll be spending my days working on the Star Wars RPG, I'll be doing what I've been working toward for the last five years.

    I hope that this turns out to be a good move. At the very least, it should give all fans of Star Wars roleplaying some hope, as it means the line will continue with me as a full-time designer. Wish me luck, and may the Force be with you! ...

    Last night as a part of WotC's UnCon, Gary "GMSarli" Sarli and I took part in an online chat about the upcoming Star Wars RPG Saga Edition core rulebook. Though the chat was a surprise to me as well, we managed to have a pretty solid chat that revealed some details of the new system. Check out the Holonet Forums post for a transcript of the chat, and ongoing discussion. Special thanks to Starcloud on the WotC forums for providing the transcript of the evening's festivities. ...

    The Q1 WotC product catalogue has come out, it seems, and in it is some more information about the big project that Owen K.C. Stephens and I worked on together. After Amazon.com broke the news on the book early, I didn't know whether or not I could mention it, so I waited until the catalogue came out to post the announcement here. Regardless, here is the information on the product:

    Star Wars Roleplaying Game: Saga Edition
    Owen K.C. Stephens and Rodney Thompson*

    This new edition of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game encapsulates all six feature films while presenting a thorough revision of the rules, making the game easier to learn while improving the overall play experience. The new 288-page core rulebook includes new character abilities and options, a streamlined skill system, a revised combat system, new feats and Force powers, a world gazetteer, statistics for key characters from all six Star Wars films and the Expanded Universe, and guidelines on how to use Star Wars Miniatures and battle maps in play.

    *Based on the Star Wars Roleplaying Game Revised Core Rulebook by Bill Slavicsek, Andy Collins, and JD Wiker

    Key Selling Points:
    • This is the first official Star Wars Roleplaying Game product to include Episode III content.
    • The core rules have been revised and streamlined to make the game easier to learn and more fun to play.
    • This new edition of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game is more miniatures-friendly than previous editions and includes a battle map and guidelines for using Star Wars miniatures in play.
    • Fans of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game have been anxiously awaiting a version of the rulebook that includes updated information on all six feature films.

    March 6, 2007
    288 page Hardcover

    Hopefully, after GenCon I'll be able to talk about the product more. ...

    The box art for the upcoming Star Wars Miniatures Starship Battles game has been revealed, and it looks as though the ships included are going to be rather large. Also, it looks as though both the Executor and the Mon Calamari cruiser are really, really big -- if the starter box is to scale with the Revenge of the Sith starter box, the ships could be as big as twice or three times the size of the WotC standard Huge-sized miniatures. If so, this set could be one of the best things to come out of WotC (especially for fans of the RPG) in years! ...
