Campaign Status: November 2015

After a four-year hiatus we’re returning to our Knights of the Old Republic campaign. The campaign will be run as a series of one-shot adventures involving the crew of the Balanced Recursion, a Binary Transport ship working with the Jedi Order to find and protect force-sensitive younglings during the Mandalorian Wars.

The campaign picks up largely where we left off, with the Mandalorians having taken Duros and threatening to invade Coruscant. The Jedi Masters Malak and Reven have revealed the Mandalorians’ xenocide at Cathar, and elements of the Order have finally decided to take action.

The return is inspired by a few things. The impending release of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens is a big part of it; so is the desire for a quick-hit campaign we can run when some of our more infrequent players can make it to the table. And then there’s our affection for the Saga Edition rules — a number of us still love that ruleset, and it didn’t take much convincing for us to return to them.

Look for new episode write-ups soon.


Campaign Status, April 2011

The campaign’s on a temporary hiatus as we play through our annual Gygax Memorial Dungeons & Dragons Adventure. The adventure — The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun — will likely take us a few sessions to get through, but we plan to return to Star Wars sometime in May 2011.
