tyrhung:

official PnP RPG settings tend to be awful and imo the best games are in homebrew settings, without exception

I have never played a prefab adventure and the whole idea is, like, foreign to me. Like, I DM so I can storytell and make up cool dungeons not so I can serve as an Official Paizo Representative and recite NPC dialogue like it’s a telemarketing script

NEVER HESITATED FOR A SECOND: JASON AARON ON WRITING ‘STAR WARS’ FOR MARVEL [INTERVIEW]

By Andy Khouri

Arguably the “biggest” announcement of Comic-Con weekend was Marvel’s unveiling of the creative teams for its first three all-new Star Wars comics. The new books have been hotly anticipated since plans for Marvel Star Wars books were first announced back in January, shortly after the company’s corporate parent, Disney, acquired Star Wars creator George Lucas’ Lucasfilm.

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca will team for a Darth Vader ongoing series; Mark Waid and Terry Dodson will author a five-issue Princess Leia miniseries; and Jason Aaron and John Cassaday have been named as the creative team for a Star Wars ongoing series. The three series will launch through the first quarter of 2015, each telling original stories set between the events of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back — the obvious place within the original trilogy to expand the universe and explore the characters.

The core Star Wars title from Aaron and Cassaday will naturally focus on the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo as they go up against Darth Vader’s imperial forces. To learn more about the project, ComicsAlliance spoke with Aaron and series editor Jordan D. White (unfortunately Cassaday was not available for comment before publication time).

"We’re no strangers to parallel continuities, here at Marvel, given our core universe, the Ultimate Universe, the Cinematic Universe."

God, comics are so complicated. That’s two whole continuities and one of them isn’t comics.

Been thinking about more interesting things to do w/ The Purge than “people gonna murder.” I think it could work pretty well as a comic, actually, with mostly self-contained arcs.

You could have prisoners planning a jailbreak, terrorists going after specific targets (unprotected by the “too important” clause or w/e), MASSIVE drug deals, businesses skirting laws about pollution…

Lots of possibilities, really. Too many to explore with samey thriller movies.

David Lapham would fucking kill on this
