Hangout Interview #2 – Charm City Game Day

In this episode, we interview Andy Kotch and Sean O’Connor about their experiences at Baltimore’s Charm City game Day running the heist Only Two Ways Home and using these pregen characters. They tell great stories of Star Wars fun, as well as cautionary tales of things that could, and did, go wrong.

If you yourself have a story of Triumph or Despair that you would like to share with the Star Wars roleplaying game community, please contact Galaxy Master Ross to schedule an interview.

Hangout Interview #1

The first of the Triumph & Despair Hangout Interviews is out!

In this episode, we interview Graham Leeb, Brendan Flattery, and Sean O’Connor about their characters HRT-94 and Graz. Graham and Brendan’s game ground down to a halt with a few bad rolls. How do you get out of that mess? Sean was able to take a session focused on his combat-centered Wookiee berserker and turn it into something out of an episode of Law & Order. How did he get that to work so well?

This series is meant to be fresh and explore new territory. Comments, critiques, and suggestions for future interviews are welcome. If you yourself have a story of Triumph or Despair that you would like to share with the Star Wars roleplaying game community, please contact Galaxy Master Ross to schedule an interview.

Hangout Interviews

I’m announcing an exciting new feature on Triumph & Despair; called Hangout Interviews.

Hangout Interviews we consist of a short, live discussion between myself, as host, and two players or Galaxy Masters, as guests, lasting about a half hour. Each guest will bring to the table a tale of Star Wars role playing in which they were personally involved that shows us something that either went extremely well and we should look to repeat (Triumph); or something that went badly, was boring, or simply fell short of what was intended and should be avoided or changed for the better (Despair).

The focus here will be brevity and utility. We will not waste the audience’s time was worthless self-aggrandizement or cheesy talk-radio gags. The entire Star Wars community is welcomed here with open arms; from live games to play-by-post, from Edge of the Empire to WEG. All we care is that you bring your passion for this great hobby and share your adventures with us so that we might learn from you and better our own games. These interviews will be done using Google+ Hangouts, recorded live and to be posted publicly.

If grand, fiery tales of your Star Wars adventures are straining to come out and be shared with the world, get in contact with Galaxy Master Ross with a one or two sentence description of your own Triumph or Despair. We’ll communicate, coordinate, and set up a time to share our tales.
