After a long delay, here's the fourth and final part of the Star Wars Heroic hack. I hope you enjoy!
It's been quite some time since our last post, so here's a little recap: Part One presented the basic rules for character creation; Part Two covered character advancement and gamemastering; and Par...

"What is the condition of white life? We are moral debtors who act as material creditors. Our banks make bad loans. Our police, like Nietzsche’s creditors, act out their power on black bodies. And, as I see in my own language, we confuse whiteness with ownership. For most of us, the police aren’t ‘‘ours’’ any more than the banks are. When we buy into whiteness, we entertain the delusion that we’re business partners with power, not its minions. And we forget our debt to ourselves."
Reckoning with what is owed — and what can never be repaid — for racial privilege.

Proud to say that I :did: know all of these. But only because of my research over the last three years of running SRPS. Didn't learn about any of these women when I was younger. And that, my friends, is why we still need Women's History Month.

+Stan Fresh, I try to include powers that either the character uses frequently or are distinctive to that character, not all abilities a Jedi would have. SFX can describe many Force effects.

My standard jedi has the following: Telekinectic (Elemental) Control, Force (Elemental) Control, Mind Control D6 (only works in weak minds) and Enhanced Reflexes.

My take on Prequel Obi-Wan would have these four plus Jumping. Force Push as a SFX.

[UPDATE] A few weeks ago I asked you for some help with this. Here's what came out of it. I'd love your feedback.
It's Star Wars Season! You can't escape it. It's everywhere! With a new movie coming - just a few days away! - and all the excitement and expectation it brings, my friends and I decided to revisit ...

Hi,
I'm working on a hack Heroic + Action to make a Cortex Plus powered Star Wars game and i'd like some ideas from the community.
I'm having a bit of trouble deciding how to adapt the Affiliations Trait into something more akin to the SW setting. One option I'm considering is replacing it with a category which would be based on the ethics/morality of the characters' actions (Light/Neutral/Dark). Another option is to use FAE-like approaches - how the character solves the problem, mapping it to type of Stress. eg. say a Forceful (Agressive) attack/approach relates Angry.
What do you think?

I'm also leaning towards the Approaches method because of something all of you mentioned: not all players will be interested in the temptation plot. I can certainly see it for a jedi-centric campaing, but this is meant to be broader, for all types of characters that can exist in this universe. Milestones can do that.

This insight and perspective is what made me switch from traditional RPGs as the focus of my gaming attention to indie games and story games: The edges and the outsides are where the really gripping stories are being told. And it also makes me want to actually work up the courage to try and design games of my own.

Because it says: You don't need to wait for someone else to write this awesome game. Others like you are doing it, and they're friendly, welcoming and helpful, and you can look at their tools and have a go yourself!

Everyone who wants to start a gaming group should see this interview - Thank you, +Whitney Beltrán​!

I'm a huge fan of BABYLON 5, but I never knew that the real reason that Michael O'Hare left as the lead after the first season -- he had begun to show signs of schizophrenia during production.

Showrunner J. Michael Straczynski offered to shut down production while O'Hare received treatment, but O'Hare insisted on continuing the season, and then left the show -- while Straczynski help him get treatment, pay rent, etc. even after he'd left.    

They kept it quiet to save his career, but he told Straczynski that he could tell the tale after he died.   Michael O'Hare died in 2012, and here is the first interview where Straczynski tells the story.

Wow.

I need to do a re-watch of this show.
