After several years of on-again off-again work, Trinity-Dragon and I have completed our supplement book for the Star Wars Saga Edition Roleplaying Game. It's a project that was originally based around the adventures of TD, myself and FantomX as we ran though a campaign of epic proportions throughout college and beyond. We started as Jedi Padawans, became Knights, went on to be outcasts, then started our own Force tradition that the book gets its namesake. The Order of St. Elsa Handbook covers all kinds of content from the fringes of the galaxy, introducing new Prestige Classes, Feats, Force Powers, and gives alternate rules for creating an animal companion for your character. We've even included a short adventure stub for players to enjoy. All of this is going to be put online, free for anyone. We didn't start this to make money, but to continue and expand upon the Star Wars Saga Edition Roleplaying Game.

There is only one last thing we need before we begin final editing and eventual release...we need ART! So now comes the part where I scour dA, looking for deviant artists with reasonably-priced commissions available. If you know of anyone, or would like to be commissioned (or donate art out of the goodness of your heart lol), then please let me know in the comments. 

In other news, our other endeavor, Digimon Encounters, is in its first bout of playtesting, and the info we get through actual players will allow us to revise anything that needs it, as well as polishing features that need it. Exciting times!

Wrecked AT-AT Model by Riptor25
Wrecked AT-AT Model
Ever since the line of Star Wars Miniatures from Wizards of the Coast was discontinued, I've been in search of something to sate my need for diminuitive objects and wars in the stars. Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures by Fantasy Flight Games has filled that hole (if only partially). The game is fun, it has a wide variety of ships to play with, and has a very active modding community. 

In the process of buying some extra parts for the game, a guy also sent me a half-mold of an old Micro Machines AT-AT in bright pink plastic. I thought of chucking it at first, but then got to thinking "this would make some awesome terrain for playing X-Wing if I painted it". So after a bit of trial and error, I painted this up as a wrecked AT-AT, left to the elements on a desert planet. For my first time trying both sand and rust on a model, I'm very pleased with the result!

The Opus by Riptor25
The Opus
Or "Magnum Opus" as I call it. This is probably my favorite lightsaber thusfar. I love the sheath-style design on lightsabers. Anyway, this one consists of what appears to be a fishing rod holder for a boat (I found it in a pile of old pipes at the nearby thrift store), a gear clamp that held down the old flashlight switch before I glued it down, a pressure washer rubber grip, and a bit of short copper pipe that I wedged in with a rubber o-ring. The pommel is simply a sink drain plug wedged in the end, and the rubber grip folded over itself. I think the rubber grip was the most expensive piece at around 12 dollars for the washer (the other grip went on The Dueler). All total, I'd say it cost 12 dollars if you count the grip as 6 bucks. I later on put a rare-earth magnet inside the rubber handle part, so with a belt that has metal studs, it quickly and firmly attaches to the belt! Walking around with this one attached to a belt feels just awesome!

STAR WARS SoroSuub GunTug starboat by Riptor25
STAR WARS SoroSuub GunTug starboat
A design filling a niche in production fields, the GunTug serves much larger vessels and space ports by easing vessels into appropriate docking ports. Using a combination of repulsors and tractor beams, a GunTug can slowly push or pull a vessel many times its size into position for a successful dock. The 'arms' attached to the engine pylons can rotate on their bases independently, allowing for any number of angles between cockpit, engines, and arms. A small fleet can move significantly larger starships, and their cheap production (the cost of such powerful repulsors and tractor beams mitigated by lack of life support and no hyperdrive) means they are standard issue on resort worlds as a sort of "valet" for yachts and cruisers.

This is part of an upcoming project Trinity-Dragon and I have been working on for some time. Eventually I'll try to remember to post Saga Edition RPG stats for the GunTug.
EDIT: TD found the stats, so without further ado:

Bit - Order of St. Elsa Founder character card by Riptor25
Bit - Order of St. Elsa Founder character card
To go along with the Christmas Star Wars Miniature that I customized for Trinity-Dragon, I had to make a card to go with the Miniatures Battle Game! Using a template I found online, I carefully added in a picture TD had done of Bit, and added in some fitting stats (while trying not to make him too game-breakingly awesome). I then printed it out and laminated it, creating a cool card and miniature for use in the game or for display!

How's it going?

As for me tho it's a disaster.

Me and my mom both got hit by a huge bomb that we weren't prepared or even expecting.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I don't know if you're a person of faith, but I will remember to pray for you and your mom.
