So the other day, Irfan was in a blaster shootout with some Imperials - perhaps CompForce troopers.

Savage Star Wars Character Sheet

25 December 2011 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games, Star Wars

Almost two years ago, I was looking at custom Savage Worlds character sheets online. There were ones for games such as Solomon Kane, Slipstream, Necessary Evil, Realms of Cthulhu and Deadlands. These roleplaying games used the Savage Worlds system and they were officially supported.

However, what if you need to play Savage Star Wars? I know there are a number of fanmade (unofficial) documents designed for you to play a Star Wars RPG using Savage Worlds.

So, I fired up Inkscape and created this custom character sheet. If you're using Savage Worlds to run Star Wars, go ahead and download this pdf file.

D6 Magazine Issue 3: An Interview

24 December 2011 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games

It's the Horror issue!

D6 Magazine - the online fanzine for Open D6 roleplaying game material - has released issue #3!

The horror issue has a variety of articles and scenarios, including vampires, a hell hound, a redcap goblin and Spring-heeled Jack. There's also a simple Sanity System for running D6 horror adventures.

The eerie, underwater Cinema6 adventure "Down Below" written by J. Elliot Streeter brings the zine to a close. You might remember my artwork created for the adventure in this previous blog entry.

But it also has a bonus four-page interview with me by Peter Robbins, interrogating me about my past, present and future in artwork and illustrations, as well as role-playing games!

Here's an excerpt:

Q: When did you decide, "Hey, I could make money doing this? Sure, let's roll in that dough!" And what were your emotions when this decision came into fruition in your life?

A: When I ran out of kidneys to sell on eBay.

41 Months

23 December 2011 | sila | | Family Pics

Another impossibly quick month has passed. Don't ask me where the time went. Despite my best efforts, this entry is quite late and (guiltily) backdated. My excuse: work. I had a lot to accomplish before handing off for maternity which meant that I had to work through the Christmas holidays even! Excitement and nervousness abounds - Yaya's Adik is scheduled to arrive on December 29th, and we have much to do to be ready! Yaya was stellar throughout this period. She didn't complain that Mama was always in the office, making me feel all kinds of guilt. But as always, she is an absolute joy for us.
