Interplanetary Adventure, New Worlds, Ancient Civilizations, Alien Species, and more, with a delightful mix of magic and technology, with a dash of psionics and mythic challenges!

Legendary Planet will take your characters across the multiverse, traveling alien gateways created by ancient, god-like beings to exotic worlds and back again in an incredible campaign like none other. Sword-swingers and spell-slingers stand alongside scoundrels and seekers for cosmic enlightenment as they  unravel conspiracies and cryptic alliances bent on universal domination… or annihilation!

Threat Detected Vintage Volume 3

Here’s the next batch of vintage Threat Detected episodes. It includes my first ever running of the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars system, in a holiday special on Tatooine.
There’s an episode where the spouses of Star Wars gamers compare notes… and I don’t look too good compared to some of the hubbies.
We even go to the latter episodes of First to Strike, as Mount Antas gets stormed… and as Moppo becomes a Jedi Knight. These sessions include my wife Mari, cartographer extraordinaire Christopher West, amazing gamer and artist Ryan Walsh and even Donovan Morningfire.
