The Order 66 Podcast Episode 138 - Dances With Banthas
As is tradition for the release of a new piece of major Star Wars content, the Order 66 Podcast throws caution to the wind for an off-the-cuff rant and deep dive into The Book of Boba Fett. Welcoming back the familiar voice of Keith Kappel, we dissect The Book of Boba Fett with a ham-fisted, open-mouthed, no-holds-barred discussion. What does it mean to the fandom? How does it continue and build on the Star Wars legacy? How can the themes and set pieces of The Book of Boba Fett make their way onto your game table? So settle in for a warm Bacta Tank soak, and give a knowing nod to Fennec Shand as you ride your rancor off into the sunset, as we get all Dank Ferrik with a dive into The Book of Boba Fett on this episode of YOUR Order 66 Podcast!
The Order 66 Podcast Episode 137 - Ebb Your Flow
The Order 66 Podcast is back at you with a return to our classic The Force Will Be With You segment where we deep dive into a specific force power. This episode, by listener request, we tackle one of the most versatile and potent powers: Ebb / Flow. Not only do we discuss the RP aspects and game mechanics of this often underestimated force option, but we also dive into how both players and GMs can make the best use of Ebb / Flow at their tables. We also return to the dark-shrouded halls of When Good Games Go Bad with a question from a GM dealing with wallflower players, and answer a couple of burning listener questions about competing narrative player actions and about utilizing cross-core careers in conjunction.
The Order 66 Podcast Episode 136 - Toil and Trouble
Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, Lightsabers Burn and Sith Lords Bubble! The Order 66 Podcast stirs the old cauldron in this episode to brew up a fresh episode devoted to the full ins and outs of Sith Alchemy (or just Alchemy) in your games. From the various Alchemical Potion and Talisman recipes in the rules, through to a full crafting guide, and then how to properly and most enjoyably add Alchemy into your own games, from both a player and GM perspective. We also return to dingy shelves of Watto’s Black Market with a related and requested dive into the Potion of Wills and some crazy campaign ideas. And finally, we tackle some long awaited and deep listener questions about how to confront a GM with a tough rules call, and expanding and reworking a house-rule about calling on the Dark Side of the Force.
The Order 66 Podcast Episode 135 - The Rise of Starship Combat
The Order 66 Podcast returns with a massive episode that sees a unique return to the vehicle and starship combat mechanics of Star Wars - done in a completely different system. For this special episode, the hosts welcome special guest GM Hooly, as we spend three hours focusing on the upscaled narrative dice mechanics of vehicle combat in the successor system to Star Wars: the Genesys Roleplaying game. By listener request, we dive into just what the differences between the two systems are, and what about the Genesys vehicle ruleset make starship combat faster, more engaging, simpler, and more fun at the table. We go step by step to walk you through the conversion process to include these amazing mechanics into your Star Wars games, and even put it all into practice with an hour-long live starship encounter on the air, using the Genesys vehicle rules. This episode was months in the making, with a lot of research, planning, and much playtesting. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

I Never Listen to the Order 66 Podcast
Still going strong after all these years, and a joy to listen to! Anyone who whines about “pandering” and “wokeness” is on the Empires side. Fly Casual!
First RPG experience!
I just started playing the Edge of the Empire in late 2019 with a few friends and we love it! As a first time GM I struggled to find super useful tools to help improve our sessions until I found the Order 66 podcast! And in case you’re wondering I’m still in your 2013 episodes and oh man..... amazing! So helpful and fun! Keep up the great work. Hopefully I’ll catch up to current episodes in a few months :)
