Star Wars The Force Awakens is finally upon us !
While (not really at the same time) we’re heading with Persephelia for the BFI Imax, Garry and James, from Role Play Haven, join me to celebrate this long awaited event with a not so little discussion about our Star Wars memories, tabletop RPG related or not.
We also discuss about our favorite Star Wars tabletop role playing game systems and stories. James even takes us through their rather fascinating history.
Please be careful there are some minor spoilers about campaigns and adventure modules at 00:34:42, minor Force Awakens spoilers at 00:40:36 and everything Force Awakens then get spoiled at 00:44:19.
You’ve been warned!!
I’d still be very keen to receive questions you would have about roleplayers across the Channel. Do you want to find out what they play? Where they play? Do you have any idea for obscure questions to investigate?
If so, or if you have any comment about the podcast, please contact me through one of the following:
