    Some of you have e-mailed us voicing some concerns about the new site, and I would like to address them. First, the image files I (Moridin) kept on the SWRPG Database are slowly but surely being put into their appropriate stat blocks, plus many new images. Within the next week or so all of the images should be uploaded and inserted, so never fear.

    Also, we do have a Downloads section on the way, but the coding is not yet complete. Rest assured, the fonts and utilities are on the way!

    As an aside, we've had an overwhelming number of site visitors since our launch, and we'd like to thank all site visitors for giving us a good look. And as usual, don't hesitate to E-Mail Us with questions, comments, and concerns. We thrive on feedback! ...

    Gregg Miller chimes in with a new report on the contents of Star Wars Gamer #3. Here's what he had to say:


    2 stories, one by Kevin J. Anderson titled Bane of the Sith. Another one dealing with Talon Karrde.

    The stuff regarding the RPG: The main meat is the articles on how to build and play droid characters. Also info on our favorite little guys, the Jawas. Also info on Spaceports and Landing pads. Also an article entitled "The smugglers Alliance". It gives the stats for Karrde and his buddies.


    Christopher West also gave a short report of some of the things in the magazine. Here's what he had to say:


    I got my subscription copy of Gamer #3 yesterday, too...It's got a vast wealth of valuable RPG content.

    Not only have they listened to the fans and included sidebars of game info for things in the short stories ("Dxunian Stalker" and "Dxunian Raptor" in this issue), there also seems to be proportionally more RPG content compared to the rest. One of the stories in this issue is just a three-page novel excerpt about Talon Karrde, which allowed for more space for RPG articles. There's also only one adventure in this issue, though it's a sweet 12-pager. ("Cloud Cover" -- Two acts...set on Cloud City, of course.)

    The computer game section also includes a bunch of valuable game stats: one vehicle (Trade Federation gunboat) plus a few characters from the planning of Star Wars Galaxies: A Bothan Scoundrel/Jedi Guardian, a [blue-skinned but cool looking] Mon Calamarian Scout, and a Twi'lek Noble/Crimelord. Topping it off are stats for a Krayt Dragon.

    Even if you don't count this extra RPG stuff, there's a total of 9 RPG-related articles, plus the adventure. While the droid stuff will no doubt get a lot of attention and the starport maps are cool, I suspect the real gem of the issue will be the 14 pages of rules, ship stats, and ship tokens for playing out starfighter combat on the poster-sized hex map.

    All in all, it appears to be a very worthy issue.

    Welcome to the grand opening of SWRPGNetwork - the future of SW-RPG content on the web. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy this site as much as we do, and that it serves as a useful reference for your own gaming sessions. We have been anxiously preparing this site for over four months, and we are excited to reveal it to the community at large.

    There are many things we believe will make this site different from all other SW-RPG sites on the Web today. The first of these is the sophisticated sorting system for stats, articles, reviews, and all other content on the site; you can search using six separate categories and narrow your search down to a few select choices. Next, we are the only site to feature syndicated news directly from Wizards of the Coast, updated as often as they do. That way you never have to leave SWRPGNetwork to check on official news. We also have a live commenting system, allowing you, the community, to add your thoughts on everything you see here at SWRPGNetwork. And, of course, we have the daily news and quality content you've come to expect from all of our past projects.

    We hope you are as intrigued by the possibilities of this site as we are. SWRPGNetwork would like to be a community partner, forming yet another link in the chain of sites that make this community a reality.

    The Star Wars RPG Database is reporting that the previously announced Creatures of the Galaxy book has changed names, format, and release date to be even better! Here's their report:

    The previously announced "Creatures of the Galaxy" will not be coming out. Nor will "Denizens of the Galaxy." Contrary to rumor, nor will there be two separate books about Star Wars creatures and aliens released by WotC for the 'Star Wars Roleplaying Game.'

    What WILL be coming out is "Alien Anthology," a 128-page full color book. It covers creatures and aliens drawn from the movies, novels, comic books, and game material. Many of the aliens featured are being expounded upon for the first time in official game material.

    "Alien Anthology" is slated for an October 2001 release. It was written by Steve Miller and Owen K.C. Stephens, and edited by Brian Campbell and Cory Herndon. Illustrations are by Sam Wood & Co.

    A little more information about the next issue of Star Wars Gamer has come in the form of the cover of the magazine and some excellent insider information from Star Wars RPG author Steve Miller. Here's what he had to say about the issue:


    I think SW Gamer #2 is a vast improvement over #1... the fiction's better, the game articles are better [well, MY short story in #1 is unmatched... ;-)]...overall, it's just BETTER.

    And the same is true of #3. I got an advanced look at a copy of it this morning. Cory Herndon's written a GREAT expansion of the droid rules in the core rule book--more droids, official droid PC guidelines; there are some great starport maps; and the starfighter rules using the 'Silent Death' game mechanics are also neat. (And even if you don't want to use those rules, there are some great counters of TIE fighters and such.) And in #3, there are game stats that tie to the short story (!)... we had 'em for #1, but they were web downloads, or hidden in the computer game section.

    If #4 continues to show the same upward trend of improvement we've been seeing, it'll be better than I can imagine.


    That information, combined with the news of the Darth Bane short story, make this magazine an issue I can't wait to pick up. Issue #3 should be hitting newsstands around March 19, and if you happen to get the issue via subscription before then, don't hesitate to e-mail us with a report. ...

    A news report on TheForce.Net indicates that veteran Star Wars author Kevin J. Anderson will once again be returning to the Star Wars universe in the form of a short story. Apparently detailing the origins of Darth Bane, this news was posted on his official site:


    "Bane of the Sith"
    Kevin To Do New Star Wars Short Story: The Origin of Darth Bane

    Many fans have written to ask when Kevin will return to the Star Wars universe with more original fiction. You have only to wait until March for a 5000-word short story, never before published, in issue #3 of the Star Wars Gamer magazine (on newsstands March 19).

    The new story, "Bane of the Sith," is set a thousand years before Episode 1, and tells the origin of Darth Bane, an evil Sith Lord who changed the nature of dark-side followers forever. This story provides a bridge between the Tales of the Jedi History and The Phantom Menace and also acts as a springboard for a new Dark Horse Comics series, Jedi vs. Sith.

He began his life on Corellia, working with his father, Hal Horn, in the Corellian Security Force. After his father was killed by the bounty hunter Bossk and the Imperial liaison let his murderer go free, Corran fled Corellia and joined the New Republic as a part of Rogue Squadron. ...

    The Kuati nobility has had a long history of paranoia and infighting. As such, most have modified jewelry and equipment to carry poisons and antidotes. The Kuati signet ring, bearing the mark of one's heritage, is an example. Some rings come with a very small needle, that, when in contact with another's skin, will inject poison directly into the bloodstream. ...

    This small, almost unnoticeable device was used by Imperial Agents on Bothawui for the instigation of riots during the troubles regarding the Caamas document. In essence, this small cylindrical tube allows for the easy framing of an individual in a situation where little attention is being paid by onlookers. ...

    In the Adumari nation of Cartann, the blastsword is a weapon used by skilled warriors as a means of settling a dispute. The weapon itself resembles a typical vibroblade, like the traditional rapier weapon used by Outer Rim pirates. It has a curved metal guard above the hilt of the sword, protecting the bearer's hand from the weapon's energy. ...
