Star Wars 7 The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon Comparison

In general I've been trying to keep clear of the Star Wars 7 The Force Awakens rumors, but I was looking at some old shots of the models from the original Star Wars trilogy, when the image of the Millennium Falcon came up and I realized why something I'd seen from a leeked Episode 7 image didn't seem right.

On the left is a shot from the original model, on the right is from the set of Episode 7. You can clearly see multiple differences, not just subtle, but obvious differences. I highlighted just a few in red.

You'll notice several more.


I'm sure everyone on 7 is working hard to get every detail right, but this is going to be a big, difficult thing to get everything right on.

Once again, everyone's favorite old-school illustrator, the amazing Dave Trampier to brighten up your Tuesday.


Petty Gods: Revised & Expanded Preview

Long ago a project was started by James Maliszewski called Petty Gods, it was inspired by a post on Planet Algol about a book of minor gods that would be very handy for sandbox style gaming and general adventure ideas. The project sounded so interesting to me that I contributed some art for it, including a full color cover.

The book was never quite finished, well a project like this could never actually be finished as there is an infinite number of minor gods you could imagine. Goddess of onions who has the power to make an individual cry. God of thorns, or god of bog odors, and so on.

When the project languished it was picked up by Greg Gorgonmilk, then it passed to Richard LeBlanc, and it looks like the book fully revised and expanded will at long last be available. You can pick up a free preview over at DriveThruRPG.

Tip of the hat to James Mishler for calling attention to this.
