Today we celebrate the greatest sci-fi/fantasy saga of all time. Countless hours have been spent watching the movies, reading the books, playing the games, imagining additional tales and debating various elements of the franchise. At least one of those movies will be watched again before the day is done. And some work may be completed on upcoming RPG action in that galaxy far, far away.
This also is a moment tinged with sadness, however, as we mark the passing of Peter Mayhew, the actor who portrayed Chewbacca in most of the movies, who passed away a few days ago. He joins Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker and other cast and crew members of the films who have become one with the Force of the past few years. We cherish their place in our lives and the memories they left us.
We have recovered almost completely from our very busy road trip to Recon 2019 last week. Additional pictures and a full after-action report are coming but catching up with real life has taken priority. Hopefully, you were able to follow along with our in-the-moment social media posts. Plans already are underway for our participation in Hurricon 2019 at the end of September. Stay tuned for those updates!
As you will see further down in this newsletter, we have updated our LRPG Calendar of Events. It is a living documents so a couple of games have changed and a couple have been added. We’ve posted up to the end of June but don’t forget that the entire calendar can be viewed on our main website’s message board. The link is provided later in this document.
We hope to see you all at our next Guild Gaming Event on Friday May 10!
