Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 14

The Borrowed Time, the CR-90 corvette called the Last Ditch, and a mixed group of starfighters cruised through the darkness of space, several hyperjumps away from the planet Dahvil and the now-destroyed Rebel base there. While the rebels had made good their escape and savaged the Imperials in the process they were faced with an […]

Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 13

Cole ran for the cockpit, leaping into the pilot chair and desperately trying to get the Borrowed Time up and running even as Bas did the same in the engine room. Nak dropped into the dorsal turret and strapped in, swinging the blaster cannons towards the blown-open hangar doors. Verjylla was on the ship’s comm, […]

Gaming in the Wild: A Clear Canvas

A funny thing happened when I cast off the shackles of the somewhat underwhelming experience we had going through Dungeons and Dragons’ “Princes of the Apocalypse” adventure module. As the internet does with its click-bait, “The Dungeon Master gave the players control, and you won’t believe what happened next…”

Gaming in the Wild: The End of the Apocalypse

Over the last year or more, my table at the Bracebridge Tabletop Gaming Community has been plodding their way through the Dungeons and Dragons adventure module “Princes of the Apocalypse.” After a meeting with the group, here is what we have decided…

Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 12

Having successfully engaged more of the Empire’s Inquisitors, managing to kill the Mandalorian Inquisitor Skirata and rescuing a young Force-sensitive Mirialan and her parents in the process, the Borrowed Time crew made a call to Alliance High Command once they were clear of The Wheel. Now that they had non-combatant passengers they wanted to check in. […]

Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep. 84: “Archetype Follow-Up / GM Archetypes”

How do you know if a player is bored or engaged? How do you do everything as a GM? These questions are some of the many things thrown our way last week that we simply weren’t able to tackle in just one episode. Following up on the discussion of player archetypes from last week, our hosts […]

Gaming in the Wild: Surviving the Apocalypse

For about a year or so, I have been running the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure module for my table at the Bracebridge Tabletop Community. We are about halfway through it, if the level range is to be trusted. After all of that time, here are some thoughts…

Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 11

In one of the vast hangar bays of the space station known as The Wheel a grate covering a ventilation shaft shuddered once, twice, and then fell to the deck unnoticed among the bay’s hustle and bustle. A moment later a particularly dusty Bothan slid out before reaching back in and hauling his gear out; […]

Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 10

Several days after the near-destruction or capture of the Shadow Raptor and the destruction of the ISD Iceheart, the crew of the Borrowed Time joined General Cracken and much of the Raptor’s crew for a funeral service in the forward hangar bay of the frigate. Crewmen killed in the fighting, either by droids or by […]

Adventure Log: Living on Borrowed Time Part 9

For the second time in a week the Borrowed Time dropped out of hyperspace for a rendezvous with the Alliance Intelligence frigate Shadow Raptor. Cole had, of course, piloted the vessel on its short trip to transport the Antarian Rangers and drop off the stolen TIE Phantoms. Nak and Shikte had been sent along to act as gunners, […]
