Be My Scoundrel – Exploring Scum and Villainy Lists

With the Scum and Villainy expansions for X-wing travelling across the land in the cargo holds of countless spice runners (a.k.a. UPS trucks), it’s hard not to come up with a bunch of new lists to try out for the newest kids on the block. But I don’t want to get ahead of myself, so […]
