Practical Effects: Creating Props for Star Wars and other Sci-Fi Games

A guest article by: Jynx001

My gamer friends and I have a kind of competition going, wherein we try to out-nerd each other with various gimmicks.  It started with a pirate’s map burnt onto a piece of leather and eventually escalated to manila folder evidence bags containing NPC dossiers and a custom made USB drive full of world lore and digital game books!  When it once again became my turn to run a game, I had to try to reaffirm my place in the game-geek hierarchy by creating some interesting props – and for bonus points: at least one per game session.

The challenge was threefold.  First off, we meet weekly – only a handful of hours could be allocated to the creation of props.  Secondly, I’m broke – I would have to rely on dollar store finds and my limited collection of office supplies.  Thirdly, we were playing Star Wars Saga edition.  Any time I could hand over a code cylinder or a vial of alien toxins rather than just describing them, I would try to do so.
