Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

'Eclipse Phase' New Era of Hard Sci-Fi RPG


I've always been interested in playing a "transhuman" type of game where
humanity is just starting to reach the stars and evolution is a proactive effort.
This being a Catalyst release and being that I'm a fan of Shadowrun game I'm
wondering about the game mechanics. I play Shadowrun 3rd edition and a lot
of people do not seem to like the 4th edition's tweaks to the game mechanics.
I'll be interested to see if they use the same basis or if they come with a new
system. How about your views. Do you like 3rd or 4th edition rules? Don't like
cyberpunk Elves? Neither did William Gibson. What about the "Transhuman"
element in your space games?
