How's your current campaign, anons?
>>76078476the face had to miss today's session so it turned into a lot more shooting than I expected
How did your characters celebrate Life Day anons?
>>76078492She gets drunk and thinks of the Separatist cause. The CIS will rise again!
I called this shit last season, I knew it, the child is part of Project Snoke. Everyone in this general said it was a dumb theory.
>>76078510> SheWhy do faggots insist on playing females?
>>76078492He's a droid. He doesn't know what Life Day is.
>>76078492I watched some DS9.
>>76078548Because it's not gay to romance male characters if your character is a girl.
>>76078520I mean, the season was written before ROS came out. Considering how much of a clusterfuck the last few months of editing before it released were,. and how obsessive about plugging leaks Lucasfilm has been recently, I think it's safe to say they didn't know on the Mando set whether Project Snoke was even happening.
>>76078476My players had a near shitstorm of a session tonight. They have been raiding and building up a rebel cell which has grown VERY large though it's mostly corvettes but still very dangerous. Last session they dealt with a local crime lord they'd been dogged by pretty much from the beginning of the campaign and acquired half of his pirate fleet but....also captured over a thousand pirates and slavers who'd been manning the ships.Many of whom saw the Sentinel using his lightsaber in combat. So the party had to figure out how to deal with them. Bounty Hunter and Soldier wanted to just space them to be safe. The Sentinel, being a Jedi, was not about that shit. The Spy and Commander were both conflicted because the smart thing to do was kill them all since fucking DEATH SQUADRON was already in the area investigating the deaths of three Inquisitors they'd killed through trickery and ambush tactics.Ended up with the Soldier convincing everyone to lock the pirates in their base while they figured out what to do....and then calling for the Sphyrnas that were above the base to glass it. The right decision but the Sentinel was....not happy. He understood WHY it had to happen but he didn't agree with it happening. Then the Spy reminded the Sentinel that these guys were responsible for selling children into sex slavery, something they'd dealt with early in the campaign, and he cooled off.Now they're planning on heading off to Hutt Space with their cell to deal with a Hutt who the Commander has been wanting dead for a while and hopefully gain some more ships and recruits at the same time.
>>76078476Made my character, sent it in, nothing from GM for two weeks, then today I got told game is RIP. So I'm having fun so far.
>>76078574that sounds like an adventure hook for your party to teach you the true meaning of Life Day
>>76078633You underestimate the mouse, of course they tie something from their failed trilogy to something else, if the show was only moderately popular it makes their shit movies look better because they're linked.
>>76078520It still is. There's literally no proof it has anything to do with Snoke, you retard. Clone Sheev and Snoke were made by Sith cultists, imperials had nothing to do with it.
>>76078476Working on the setting first.
>>76078772They played the Snoke theme when the saw the things in the tanks, what else could it be?
>>76078492Went to a strip club.
>>76078846>what else could it be?Them just using the OST? Star Wars products have always used music from the films, it's not that weird.
>>76078634Historically ye olde pirate tended to meet a fairly terrible end when captured anyway by the authorities, especially if they're involved in fucking with the relevant governments money, taxes or trade and at very best might get away with a clean drop on proper hanging. If you where responsible for the seaborne shenanigans then it was the old hung, drawn and quartered with your constituent bits displayed around town for a fairly stern warning.I figured the Empire probably spaced most of them after some lengthy time with Dr Ball for any further information, or maybe not and just because they feel like it
>>76078664tell us about your PC anon>>76078476Had to cancel our usual friday due to a scheduling issue with an assignment we got last minute, sadly
>>76078904In a series that so far has had an entirely unique soundtrack that wasn't even Williams in style? Not likely.
>>76078730If they had made the hemlet law a more common thing set after Bo Katan's defeat it could have worked out as a good way to let Sabine's VA play her since her VA is indian and her charmodel was eastasian
>>76078634That's like a 5 alarm war crime but on the other hand they fully deserved it
>>76078909Would the Empire display the bodies of infamous pirates?
>>76078846the Snoke theme is also the Plagueis theme so Snoke is obviously Plagueis
>>76078985We need more repurposed B1 art.
>>76079067Dunno, I guess if its a pretty backwater shithole where the locals just don't 'get it' and continue fucking around nicking stuff they mightHistorically I don't think they ever did in any of the books but there's not been a whole lot of proper piracy and piratical themes in SW books or much else
>>76079072Checks out. Since Snoke is actually just a Palpatine meat puppet, and as per tRoS Palpatine is ALL OF THE SITH
>>76078909Yeah, that's what has happened to the pirates the Empire has run into in this campaign. A few times the party has gone looking to raid a convoy to capture ships/material and found a bunch of destroyed pirate ships and hundreds of spaced corpses.>>76079004Oh absolutely. They're lucky the men and women following them are all from planets that these pirates were raiding and slaving from or they'd have lost a portion of their cell from outright murdering 1,200 people. Sentinel is going to have some serious guilt over this since it happened all because he whipped his lightsaber out instead of using his pistol or vibroblade.
>>76079102I really wish TROS didn't exist
>>76079188so does everybody
>>76079188I wish Disney and the shills here didn't ruin Star Wars.
>>76078928>tell us about your PC anonGame had heavy Wild West themes. I made an old-ass bitter-ass angry-ass Mandalorian gunslinger who'd lost his honor, armor, and whole clan in the civil war decades ago. Mostly content to drink himself to death while bitching about the duchess, but got pulled in for one last job. The part I was hyped for was the swoop bike with an animal-level droid brain that would function as the traditional Western steed.
>>76078476Was going good despite covid. Now on indefinite hold.I r a sad.
>>76079227yeah, I'm sure a couple anons saying the EU and the prequels weren't pure gold are just as bad for the franchise as TROS
>>76079188>>76079203Honestly it is just so bad, that I can't even really be mad at it. I mostly just find it fascinating that something with that much money behind it, with so much riding on it being successful; turned out that horrible.
>>76079279It's the reason TROS exists in the first place. The storyboard has seen this thread and were influenced by both it and other forums.
>>76079280It did have to clean up the mess Rian Johnson made of the trilogy with TLJ and have an actual ending.A tall order for an unorganized hack like Abrams.
>>76079300That aspect also amused me greatly, JJ is a man infamous for setting up empty mystery boxes that he passes on to others to figure out. Now this time JJ gets the unresolved mystery box kicked back to him, and Rian took a massive shit in it first.
>>76079234Every time, it only gets more true. They don't even hate the Mouse for the right reasons, like fucking over writers and stealing fan designs and passing them off as official and breaking deals through lawyer fuckery.
>>76079298Yes. A few anons on a slow board of 4chan are why TROS exists. That's the reason.
>>76079333Rian had to write TLJ before TFA completed so he might not have known all of the mystery boxes.
>>76079298>It's the reason TROS exists in the first place.Wouldn't that be Jedi Prince and Dark Empire? Because those pieces of the EU are literally the exact fucking same story as the Sequel Trilogy?
>>76079333It's JJ and Kathleen Kennedy's fault for going into the trilogy blind. Let this be a lesson to all you kids out there learning writing: always write a full and complete outline first.
>>76079355maybe JJ should've had a plan for what was in those mystery boxes before they let Rian start writing
>>76079355Rian knew, he just didn't care. "Subvert expectations" was his motto, and shitting all over any mystery or anything that could be built up was just his MO.
>>76079300>>76079333I honestly think following on RJ's themes and ideas instead of trying to walk around TLJ would be actually better than TROS. As much as I hate the tone of the film I'm confident Rian at least would never go for something as fucking retarded as "Sheev Clone".
>>76079362>Let this be a lesson to all you kids out there learning writing: always write a full and complete outline first.not even the original trilogy was written with an outline of any kindafter the original writer died while writing the original 1-9 script, they pretty much improvised everything afterwardsthe famous familial twist from 5 was written in this period of hastily writing a new plot
>>76079362When I was in school I never used outlines to write my papers, I always made it up as I went along and I never got less than a B.Then I tried writing a story for my own amusement without an outline and it took me 8 fucking years to finish.
>>76079067>>76079100Not pirates, but they staked the heads of a bunch of people on Sulon in the Dark Forces prequel book including I think Morgan Katarn.
>>76078985they are the superior being, incapable of making errors of any kind
>>76079102So he's bane, DP, maul, Dooku and himself, who else am I missing?
>>76079387what the fuck are you talking about
>>76079421He does talk to Kylo with a Vader impression, so maybe
>>76079387>after the original writer died while writing the original 1-9 scriptu wot m8?>the famous familial twist from 5 was written in this period of hastily writing a new plotActually the idea that Vader was NOT Luke's father was a vestige of Leigh Brackett, who had nothing to do with Star Wars except being credited for writing a second draft screenplay for ESB that George Lucas immediately threw in the trash and which influenced the final cut not one jot. The first draft toyed with Vader being Luke's father, but Lucas didn't know how to flesh it out and finish it at the time
>>76079419the writer wasn't married at the time nor had any kids it was likely genetic but it didnt matter because they didnt have a plan set up in the first place and George Lucas had a deadline he needed to meet before the bankers gave up
>>76079421Fairly sure that wouldn't count as he was redeemed, maybe the personification of Skywalker's dark side?
Going on FFG rules what would Mando’s build be?I’m thinking Assassin/Skip Tracer. I thought about Mercenary Soldier but that spec is also about leadership and Mando doesn’t seem to care about being the number one in a group. Maybe bodyguard for the third spec?
>>76079429>>76079421>Anakin's soul was sucked into Sheev's decaying body thanks to TROS' retconsthanks Jew Jew
>>76079415>>76079421seriously, don't try to figure out what the fuck he meant because no one is going to bother explaining it
>>76079387Man, /tv/ has been off its rocker more than usual these last few weeks.
Who’s more retarded? KyloKraytOr Jacen
>>76079449Anakin still exists on his own because he simps for Rey at the end of the movie with all the other PT Jedi, so its more of a soul split situation.
>>76079435Wow these are some pretty inane and contrafactual schizoid ramblings even for a star wars thread.
>>76079457the election destabilized some minds around here
>>76079461Is the second galactic civil war worth a read?
>>76079449Anakin was with the other Jedi though? Sucking off Rey?
>>76079464great, let's just throw in some trash from SWTOR too, what could go wrong
>>76079466What else do you expect from Vatnik?
>>76079387Lucas actually did have an outline. He knew he wanted and endgame of Luke battling Vader, defeating Vader and then in the next trilogy, teaming up with his not-Vader father and his not-Leia sister to go beat the Emperor.It was in that intervening time that he was forced to make concessions and cuts as he came to realize his vision was a bit beyond his current grasp.The change of Vader to Luke's father was one early in ESB's development, he just didn't know how to work it. At least that's what he told the crew. On-set, David Prowse delivered lines that Obi-Wan had killed Luke's father. Mark Hamill was only told by Lucas about the twist right before filming the scene. No one aside form James Earl Jones, who had to record the real Vader dialogue knew the truth until the premier.Leia being Luke's sister was a last-minute change. Lucas had always wanted Luke to have a sister but as he was looking at Jedi as being the last movie, he couldn't introduce a new character and have her make as deep a connection with the audience as he wanted. Then he realized the answer was staring him right in the face, he could use Leia as the sister and she and Luke were twins separated at birth.
>>76079476It's...adequate. You have to put up with the absolute peak of Traviss Mandowanking, though.
>>76079476Most assuredly not
>>76079468Man they're going to lose it even worse next month is this is how they're coping with it now
anyone got any good idea for jyn/cassian/K2 lists?other than pathfinders, cant think of must have units >just use taun taunsim a slave to flavour and need some sneaky boys
>>76079457Not just /tv/, the past few days all of a sudden the amount of unintelligible ESL word salad schizoposts has skyrocketed across all the boards. You are correct in pointing out that it has affected /tv/ most overtly, but it ranges from /k/ to /ck, from /d/ to /sp/. It's like within the last week some insane asylum in Brazil released all its inmates into a library computer room.
>>76079511I'm not looking forward to when they move from Denial to Anger
>>76079444Bounty Hunter with Skip Tracer, Operator since he is shown to be a pretty skilled pilot, and then probably Mercenary Soldier from Hired Gun.
>>76079522What the fuck did they do to /d/?
>>76079240Thats a cool horse idea anon
>>76079468>>76079511>>76079526It's been 3 weeks, not even /pol/ is as buttflustered as the schizos that suddenly popped up no more than 3 days ago. Either there's a concerted discord raid by retards or a bunch of foreigners just discovered 4chan, and I'm more inclined to go with the latter.
guess I found my new dream ship for criminal shenanigans
>>76079526Don't count on it. Remember, a lot of these people are the same ones who refuse to admit they lost the first Civil War over 150 years ago.But this shit isn't /tg/. Let's keep this side stuff to a minimum.
I want to make a ship cramped enough to encourage players to get out more, like the Razor Crest. Pic related is 4.75x9.75x3m and has room for:>six capsule hotel-style bunks, 2.25m long apiece>two 1.5m2 wet bathrooms; sink in the back of the toilet and a shower head in the ceiling>a galley in the lower left corner>the rest is open space for seating, table, holoprojector, etcThe pilot and copilot step down into the cockpit like an old camper van to help break up the space. The door in the rear leads to an airlock chamber with escape pods and a ladder down to the cargo deck.My concern is that the long and narrow interior will make the exterior look like a flying boxcar, but there should be ways around that.
>>76079538/aco/ made them real uppity
>>76079552Did Mando release in any other countries recently? Might explain it a bit.
>>76079444Gunslinger + Skip tracer maybePretty handy in a fight, can fly and all the rest that goes with being an underworldy type
>>76079503>>76079506>>76079507Is there any EU ‘event’ worth reading?
>>76079538Just random spergouts in random threads that have nothing to do with anything. Like arguing about how chess is or is not a "solved game" in a thread about anime girls with horse cocks on /d/, or attempts at "banter" like saying your dad had sex with himself to give birth to your mother in a thread about Napoleon on /his/. Hell, on /ck/ I laughed out loud at some body saying Obama planted aphids in their son's pubic hair.
>>76079558careful, someone might call you a thread nanny for wanting to discourage talking about any random old bullshitalso Mando should have Operator somewhere in there, he's a pretty good pilot
>>76079588Not anything ever marketed as an "Event", no.
>>76079562>will make the exterior look like a flying boxcarShoehorn the floor plan into the HWK-290, a ship that is already bound to be naturally cramped due to being relatively short and narrow. It'll look more stylish than a boxcar, at least.
>>76079588Legacy of the Force is more worth reading than NJO or god forbid Fate of the Jedi
>>76079573If anything is to blame, it is that Lego Holiday Special. Its the sort of oddball thing that will send barely literate weirdos wandering beyond their normal territory.
>>76079601>Hell, on /ck/ I laughed out loud at some body saying Obama planted aphids in their son's pubic hair.Thanks Obama.Man, that would almost make me miss Jack threads on /ck/.
>>76079630Fuck. You've got a point, that might be it.
>>76079588Boba Fett surviving the sarlacc...the Thrawn uprising...it's a bit of a stretch to call anything else worth reading an "event">>76079558I'm from southern California and I don't think I've ever heard in the wildest liberal hollywood dreams of a southerner denying they lost the civil war, that sounds an awful lot like something someone would make up to further justify their extant hate for conservative rednecks.
>>76079588Read Galaxy of fear instead >>76079601Unironiclly sounds like Chinese raiders. Not sure WHY they seem to start being a more common thing now?>>76079552I also doubt it’s discord fags cause if it was they would’ve been spamming Wojk imagines or furry pics
is it possible to learn this power?which FFG book might have something like it?
>>76079461Krayt managed to con a lot of people, so credit where its due he managed to be less retarded than anyone else at the time. Kylo apparently had Sheev whisper in his ear, and struggled with an inherent duality. He was pretty young when he turned i think, and successfully staged a coup. He's dumb, but not that bad in context. More just floundering. And he was smart enough to make a borderline deathbed confessional to get to Jedi Heaven.Jacen? This is a guy who was a near paragon of the Force, whose knowledge was unsurpassed by anyone but the wisest jedi and sith mystics. Even Luke didnt have his breadth of knowledge. Jacen grew up without a dark drop in his soul, unlike Kylo, or Anakin, or even Krayt. The argument that convinced him to try the sith was1-you havent tried it before!And2-you hear of this Darth V guy? Yeah, he did nothing and is a Sith legend because managed to die of natural causes. You could be that guy!Jacen's fall is by far the dumbest of the 3 when taken just by his convo with Lumiya. At least Vergere didnt sound borderline incoherent and he should have flipped with Vergere if anything. Its just an awkward flip, even if it was a logical progression.>then he gets btfo by his like 4'10 sister because metric is hard and they made her super shortJacen > Kylo > Krayt at his worst, though the latter 2 job about equally often. Though Kylo did beat Rey 1v1 at Endor until he got interrupted by his dying mom, so Rey stabbing him has a big assist asterisk
>>76079703didn't they retcon that Vergere was actually a Sith and the one who started his fall? Lumiya just got the allez-oup that tipped him over.
>>76079692Force leap action in the Enhance power.
>>76079630Yeah, but all boards? I could understand that bringing wierdos to /co/ and /tv/, but what would they be doing making tinfoil hat posts that would get laughed off of /x/ in a thread about model trains on /n/? Unless there was some subliminal MKultra bomb hidden inside the LEGO Holiday Special, but I'm not paranoid enough to believe that.
As much as I think the ST is shit, I still prefer its canon over the Yuuzhan Vong War. Thrawn trilogy is great, but almost everything post ROTJ in the EU was cringy fanfiction.
>>76079703>Jaina Solo is 4'8"WEW
>>76078945Being fair, I saw a lot of people accepting The Way as either for their own protection after the Empire kicked their asses, or as a means to double down on their culture ... because the Empire kicked their asses. Or both.It had some merit, I'll admit. The first one sounds iffy but okay I can see how being spotted with the armor but no helmet means they'd be at risk anytime moving around without their armor. They'd be extremely vulnerable. And with the second, sure, protect the precious beskar and the best way to do that is to make sure there's a Mandalorian warrior inside it.Not that it helped his clan any. The notion that the de facto heroic Mandalores woudl be Bo Katan and her people, and they have a claim on the Dark Saber, means they'll certainly come up again and it's a certainty they'll wear Din down eventually. Makes me wonder if the story about the actor flipping his shit because he didn't want to keep wearing the helmet was real.
>>76079703>>76079734I M A G I N E
>>76079703Jacen and Kylo are both good arguments on Han getting castrated to be honest. Or at the very least not having sons, since Jaina turned out OK.
>>76079731I was just suggesting something that could explain the weird new arrivals around these parts, if it is a wider phenomenon across the whole site then I have no clue.
>>76079725that accounts for the long jump, but not the spinning, nor the sheer dazzling effect it had on 2 of the jedi that prevented them from acting
>>76079744Jaina's lineage resulted in Roan Fel so even she's got her issues.
>>76079703>then he gets btfo by his like 4'10 sister because metric is hard and they made her super shortDon’t forget she did it with a borderline elderly boba “mando” commando training
>>76079754he rolled like ten advantages so the GM just said "uhhhhhhhhh fuck it two of you are stunned for the rou-OH SHIT"
>>76079754The spinning could be a part of the range upgrade further down the tree with the leap action. The dazzling effect was just a result of him rolling a Triumph.
>>76079703>Jania is 4'8BUILT FOR BIG SITH COCK
>>76079757At the very least you could blame Jagged for that in part.
>>76079717Kinda yeah. Vergere war always shown as a jedi gone dark grey, but in the later Sith tribe books (where Jaden Korr is a big player) they make her part of Krayt's 6D chess, and Lumiya too. Except Lumiya was a weirdo who wanted a Rule of Two Sith, whereas Krayt wanted his One Sith, so they just never saw eye to eye>>76079734>>76079741Jacen aint a tall guy either but yeah. Jaina is just a stupidly athletic ninja pilot jedi womanlet>>76079744>okJaina is a straight up better Anakin personality wise in almost every way other than not being the chosen one and possibly not as great a pilot. In every appearance she's portrayed as being a high finesse murder machine>>76079757Its hard to say whose line got screwy after a century desu>>76079758The best part is that it comes down to "just fuckin punch him in the throat when he doesnt expect it" and then she stabs Jacen
>>76079754That was the force scream, check the novelisation to be sure
>>76079784Jag is sensible, Jaina is the hothead who jumps in guns blazing with minimal planning. A la Roan.
>>76079685>I also doubt it’s discord fags cause if it was they would’ve been spamming Wojk imagines or furry picsYou're right about that, the general average of wojaks posted has remained static although the percentage of "CHUD" wojaks has increased as a proportion of all wojaks posted, but that may be in part because of Sneedposters' repurposing of it to their own nefarious ends>>76079733I like rather more of the post-ROTJ eu than that, but you're right about the Vong. As long as Disney never canonizes the Vong, I won't regret the canon purge.>in b4 JFO2 canonizes the vong>>76079734womanlets are disgusting
>>76078985Chopper would brutally murder BD1, change my mind
>>76079785wait, they stapled the Lost Tribe to Krayt? I thought they were separate.
>>76079782There's only one cock that could handle her and that belonged to the man that reformed the Empire and made it stable, Jagged Fel.
>>76079803>he doesn't appreciate women both tol and smol
Jaina inherited Skywalker retard strength, it's why she could kick as much ads as she did.
>>76079809>Chopper would brutally murderYou don't even need that last part, Chopper is a killing machine.
>>76079754Enhance was triggered with dark side pips, rolled along with a fear check that got really good results, stunning the Jedi.>>76079809BD-1 can hack other droids. The tables have turned and Chopper is now on the chopping block.
>>76079733>almost everything post ROTJFrom what I see the Bantam-Spectra era was generally okay since it remembered that it was pulp space adventure first and foremost, it's when Star Wars started looking like itself that shit started going bad.
>>76079883>Bantam era>generally okaygood lord is this really how far we've fallen as a society
>>76079816Something I've always found sketchy and weird in my journey through pre-buyout post-endor fanfic has always been the strange prevalence of shipping jaina with fuckin kyp "WHOPPER JUNIOR " hurr-durron (not even to mention the top shelf grease of troy motherfucker denning and his weird bugfuck books).I guess it's in a lot of ways the precursor to the horrorshow that is reylo, though.
>>76079825The only acceptable smol girls are ayy lmaos and trickster goblin sluts
>>76079871BD1 is a tiny little bitch who almost died to a glorified rat; Chopper is a fanatical extremist who has attempted infanticide, killed thousands and singlehandedly destroyed an entire fucking Star destroyer
>>76079909>trickster goblin slutsdidn't the Vong think Jaina was a living incarnation of their trickster god
>>76079809Chopper is a PTSD war hero who has tried to kill ezra early on and wanted to blow up a baby.
>>76079444I'm going with Skip Tracer/Gunslinger, and once he got his jetpack he's starting to spec into Death Watch Warrior.
>>76079905wasn't Zekk/Jaina a canon ship? Zekk is basically just smaller Kyp.
>>76079890>Thrawn Trilogy>X-Wing>Courtship>Crystal Star>Jedi PrinceIt's pure, unadulterated kino.
>>76079936>>Courtship>>Crystal Star>>Jedi Princeanon plzplz
>>76079936I think he's referring to the fact that the state of scifi literature is in such a shabby condition generally that we're regarding this as the standard of high quality star wars fiction.
>>76079945PURE KINO>>76079947I mean, we're talking about Star Wars tie-in books, it's not a particularly renowned literary field. An above average sci-fi adventure story would be considered great considering most of the competition.
What happened to the Sith Purebloods?
>>76079966is there anything on par with asimov or clarke in the star wars library?
>>76079970Mickey Mouse locked them in his basement.
>>76079966>Bantam era Star Wars>above averagethis feels like a fever dream
>>76079945>tfw I realize it’s still better than the majority of modern halo books
>>76079995That's the era that the book series that are pretty much universally agreed to be the high point of Star Wars based literature, X-Wing & The Thrawn Trilogy, originate from.
>>76079999I would say no need to denigrate the retarded but we're talking about fucking Bantam-era Star Wars
>>76080018and also the era that the books that are pretty much universally agreed to be the low point of Star Wars based literature, LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE, originate from
>>76080030I'd rather a book be notably awful than just kinda meh, at least then you've got some good meme fodder like the entirety of Jedi Prince.
>>76080055oh we got those kinda meh books too, they're called like half of the X-wing series
>>76079970Extinct and irrelevant.
>>76079444I'd say gadgeteer with merc soldier. Lots of custom weapons, heavy armor, and good all around combat stats. Also conveniently gives you piloting planetary (for jetpack), space (for razorcrest) and gunnery.
>>76080072>spoilerSo all the Stackpole ones? It feels like most of the character stuff people like is all from Allston's writing.
>>76080018>universally agreed to be the high point of Star Wars based literatureThere's nothing universal about that, basically all eras of the EU had highs and lows, but the 90s had some REALLY low lows. I personally think the best of the EU was in the Dark Horse comics and the vidya. Tales of The Jedi + KOTOR 1 and 2 and the KOTOR comics were some of the best Star Wars we ever got.
>>76080128Tales of the Jedi is real real bad
>>76080128Have to agree with >>76080143, TotJ is honestly not that great and the KotOR games are the originators of a lot of lore fuckerery. The comics are well written but the style could do a lot of work since a lot of the scenery & mechanical design is very generic.
>>76078772Right, because there's no way Sheev would ever recruit for the Sith cult from among Imperials, would he? Give it time faggot, they'll name drop Snoke sooner or later, or some writer or Filoni himself will say it.
What about Kreia say about your current character

>>76080170>>76080143I don't really care about the lore making sense, I care about the stories being fun to read. It's fucking boring to have everything having to make sense and be part of this greater on-going narrative. I just want entertaining space opera adventures, and Tales and Kotor deliver just that.
>>76080241the lore is by far the least offensive part of Tales of the Jedi, it's just plain ol' shitty writing
>>76080217I'm the GM. She would be pretty disappointed in my party in all but the Zeltron senatorial aide, who has potential to sway people to their cause and get use people to their advantage, without doing much of anything themselves. Doesn't have to work too hard to create an echo.
>>76080241>I just want entertaining space opera adventurestheres a purity to episode 4, where there was no greater myth arcjust a farmboy, a princess, a wizard, a walking carpet, and a pirate who blew stuff up and said corny lines
>>76080254>Zeltron senatorial aidei m a g i n e
>>76080241>be part of this greater on-going narrativeThe KotOR games and TotJ are all about the Jedi-Sith conflict, which is the single most enduring narrative in Star Wars. A lot of the Bantam Era shit is just a bunch of relatively self contained pulp sci-fi shit, doubly so for the small number of pre-Bantam books that were made.
>>76080290but TotJ IS Bantam era. KJA even fucking crossed over his TotJ comics with his novels.
>>76080321True enough, but the comics were under Dark Horse and I consider them seperately. Plus the idea of an ancient Sith spirit being trapped on some ancient temple in the middle of nowhere is fucking kino.
>>76080344fuck off Kevin, I know it's you
All the Saga Edition PDFs are numbered, but number 5 looks to be missing. Which PDF should this be?
>>76080290>which is the single most enduring narrative in Star WarsI mean narrative in a structural sense; they feature completely unique characters and stories that have zero ties to the (at the time) rest of the franchise aside from taking place in the same universe. The writing of Kotor isn't bound to the events of the PT and OT, and vice-versa. The same can't be said of newer stuff. Almost everything is now connected in some way and has to fit in.
>>76080364GM screen. Here you go, anon.
>>76080426That's pretty minor, but thanks for completing the set.
>>76079912And Chopper has PTSD and is still afraid of Y-Wings even though it happened a decade ago. Meanwhile BD-1 isn't afraid of jack shit, he'll take on a rat and Darth Vader with no fear. Little buddy has jack shit to lose.
I'm just going to be straight up honest. How scared should I be for the future of Armada, Legion, and X-wing due to the change over?
>>76080493The press release says that some staff from FFG are moving over to Atomic Mass, but we know that they fired a number of people, including the lead producers and some of the devs from the X-Wing and Legion in the process.I don't play the wargames, but us RPG folk went through the same thing when FFG laid off the RPGs department, then later announced they're moving over to EDGE, and it's been nearly a year we're still waiting on them to kick things off into full production. Maybe the minis will have a faster turnaround time because of the money they make, but honestly I don't think anyone really knows. Asmodee just keeps breaking that company apart.
>>76080541Its not like the FFG's RPG stuff had a done of momentum behind it before all that stuff started happening. Genesys was basically DOA and the Star Wars RPG was done, all they had left was trickling out the compilation content. Genesys is in much better shape now post transition, Star Wars will probably just remain done until something major comes along to shake things up.
>>76080489BD-1 isn't a Y-Wing
>>76080563You can give him a Y-Wing skin though
>>76078476Never started. Was gonna start when one of our 2 dnd days might have to change because of 1 player a little while ago, they continued being able to make both days so we continued playing 2 days of dnd. Feels bad, had a whole starting husk of a crime world the party was gonna start on and would have to see which of the 3 largest crime organizations they liked the most to work for until they could get a clunker to get them off world, unless they found other means.
>>76080603I would hope Chopper would be able to tell the difference between a starfighter and a small droid
>>76080698He would go off in a blind and murderous rage upon seeing such a thing, honestly
>>76078476Fan-fucking-tastic. Had our third session of our Imperial campaign, and even as the GM I'm having a blast. It's not that I like the Empire; I hate it, but these troopers are absolutely hilarious.>>76078634Hutt Space is such a great place for a campaign to go. So much to do, so many possible enemies and allies-of-convenience.>>76079936Courtship is unironically one of my favorites, goofy fetish-fuel and all. I love how much it feels like a proper pulp story, with Space Fabio, flying saucers, buxom Space Amazons, the works.I've started reading it aloud to my wife before bed, and she's been getting a kick out of it, too.
>>76080792>oh god>I can still hear the bopping>it never>stops>bopping
>>76079234The tv people need to hear the good word of our lord and saviour Waruthen the snivelling cunts would have something to really complain about
About halfway through The Last Command nowWhat's up with C'baoth just "taking over" the empire? He just says he's emperor now and that's that? I get that Thrawn's just playing along to get any use out of him but it's still weird.Still it's pretty interesting to see this early vision of a dark jedi.>using telekenis in very offensive ways>just straight up mindcontrolling people with mindtrickDude's pretty scaryAlso it struck me how I still don't know Thrawn's goals and motivations yet. WHY is he doing all of this? All we got is Leia hinting at him having to prove himself to be superior to his human counterparts but that's it.
>>76080966Think of the craziest motherfucker you know- double itMaybe florida man with a messiah complex and you're starting to get into the batshit insane brain of Joruus-clone, the great thing though he was really just a massive cunt prior to dying out in the boonies, so its almost a step up in the worldalmost...
>>76080964people who complain about the Vong ain't even know bout my dude W A R U
>>76080966>I still don't know Thrawn's goals and motivations yetHe's an Imperial warlord. He wants the same thing most of the other warlords want: to restore the Empire under his rule and shoot Rebels.
>>76081027why is it so hard to establish a representative democracy in star wars?if its not being threatened by super sith warriors, empires, more empires, or weird dudes from other galaxies its just corrupt its like your only choices are total anarchy, jack booted military regimes, kleptocracy, and sith
>>76081065A galactic government inevitably leads to bloat and bureaucracy. Also, writers are contractually required to spam galactic crises at every opportunity. Reject unitary galactic government, embrace Inner Sphere balkanization.
>>76081077>. Reject unitary galactic government, embrace Inner Sphere balkanization.id imagine the core worlds would vote to stay in the republic, since they are the most closely associatedouter rim has always been effectively a wasteland, where every government barely controls a single planet middle rim would be the only ones really affected by this
>>76079557Seems like a good pirate hunter, than as ever, ended being pirate ships.I don't see a turbo laser tough, so its a bit anemic in firepower.
>>76079557how have you statted it?

>>76078476They have successfully:>Caused a shitstorm of literally galactic proportions by dispensing the truth about G'rho to the galaxy at large across several channels>Acquired/stole yet more Vulture Droids thanks to the help of their Tiss'shar buddy who they even gave a tour of the Venator for in return for his help, making his dream come true >Gotten the kid's Jedi training to go well enough that she and her new Master (who I based on Dass Jennir but with a bit more crotchety and bitter demeanor) were able to "heal" the looted Inquisitor's Lightsaber>Finally uncovered the secret Kaminoan/Arkanian plot to acquire Force users for "study"/experimentation under the nose of the Empire, with the kid managing to tag along and apprehend some of the ringleaders with them, getting some closure for herself>Confronted the forces of the remaining Inquisitor that was hunting them in a big battle on Taris that saw them managing to ram a damaged Imperial-II with their Venator and send the Vultures inside the hole that created to start blasting it apart from the inside, causing it to crash into a crater canyonCurrently they're engaged in a firefight on the surface of Taris with the Inquisitor's forces, trying to stop them before they can either escape or dig in and turn this into a much more prolonged affair. Honestly it feels like we're getting close to the end of this "arc" they're in, but my players definitely are up for more. They also want to participate in the Battle of Endor, saying it's a good through line for the journey the ship's been through.Also I must say, it was nice to see them open up a bit and even put in some actually good roleplaying. Mando player and Trandoshan player debating philosophy with the Jedi, Bothan and Clawdite players networking with the Tiss'shar, and Corellian player even starting up a big cookout in the hangar with the Rebel pilots. Last player decided to use some of that downtime to check up on Breha Organa and the survivors.
>>76081299Fuck the Capellans too, fucking commies.TAURUS STONK.>>76081278Sounds like a blast, kek. I would have never imagined a Trandoshan and a Mando talking about philosophy too.
>>76081278Oh shit, that you Venator-anon?>>Confronted the forces of the remaining Inquisitor that was hunting them in a big battle on Taris that saw them managing to ram a damaged Imperial-II with their Venator and send the Vultures inside the hole that created to start blasting it apart from the inside, causing it to crash into a crater canyonThe absolute fucking madlads.>Last player decided to use some of that downtime to check up on Breha Organa and the survivors.Aw, that's kinda touching.
>>76080541Yeah, I think there's a big difference in momentum. The miniatures games are ongoing, in some cases nearly monthly releases, and that's stuff that's going to be done well in advance. If the AMG team designed a new model today, we'd see it in two years; Spring 2021 will be full of releases from the FFG teams.The RPGs were already in a deadzone when they changed over.>>76080493I would say about 20% scared. Allow a bump to 40% scared for Organized Play, and 35% scared for the future design ethos, but hovering around 20% overall for game health. A bit more likely than rolling one on a D6, but the likeliest outcome is that things are mostly okay in the long run. Five years is an eternity in the tabletop gaming industry. You never really know who's gonna make it at the best of times, and 2020 cost the industry dearly in general.
>>76081262>>76081299>>76081317Fuck you all. PURPLE BIRD STRONG!
>>76078797this is a fun read anon, Sedno II is too spook for me though... even though the force sensitive in my group would be 'there might be a holocron around, let's go!'
>This will be canon soon
>>76081467Jesus, that Ahsoka is ugly as sin.
>>76081097brainlet take. Outer Rim is much more vast than a few shithole planets like Tatooine. Splitting the Galaxy would result in much more diversification, considering you have>Impfagssome of which are on the Rim and are hardline Imperial worlds like Bastion, Muunilinst/Mygeeto, Eriadu>Mandofagsfinally get their own bit of space, start counting until they go full VODE AN and start autistic wars with all of their neighbors>Huttsno real change here really, they already have their own space>SithCould carve out their own bit somewhere, possibly in conflict with Sith that want to lay low and dominate from the shadows. An openly Sith faction would be space North Korea in terms of diplomacy, but also incredibly useful to Jedi if there are any around since they'd know where the bad guys are>CISfagsWell Raxus and the area around it are on the Rim, far from being a backwater too. CISfag faction could either be of the idealist sort, supporting a limited government and a defense force against the much more expanding Impfags, Mandofags and Republicfags, or alternatively they could be the corporate cyberpunk kind, although really the whole megacorp aspect works with pretty much any other group as well.>Republicfags and RebelfagsI'd split these into two kinds. There's the idealists, who I'd put around Corellia, that are a lot like the Rebel Alliance-turned-government. They stick to their guns and are very pro-'right to bear arms' 90s militia-tier. Then there's the lot of bureaucrats, aristocrats, think space neocons, they'd be a lot less overtly evil in comparison to the megacorps.Then you could have tons of warlords, pirate groups, small sector factions and so forth.Really Star Wars only feels small because EU and Nu-Canon writers both have always restricted themselves to either a galaxy-spanning Republic that's ineffectual as ever, or the Empire and Sith (occasionally with a rebranding like First Order or Fel Empire'/One Sith) taking over the Galaxy. Again.
>>76081317They recognize that their morals don't exactly align with those of the Jedi's, which made him curious about the actions they've taken thus far, from Venator theft to stealing the kid to even coming to rescue him. Mando is in it to get back at the Empire, not out of any appreciation for the Republic, and would probably go back to bounty hunting and mercenary work in the Outer Rim once things are all said and done. She does have a soft spot for kids, but recognizes she's not in the position to really take someone like Zira as a Foundling; better to leave the kid to someone who can raise her reasonably well than try and fail to raise her as a Mando. Trandoshan in contrast sees what he's done under the lens of acquiring Jagannath points; having gotten away with so much shit so far has half-convinced him the Scorekeeper approves of it all. He understands that it's not a viewpoint most aliens would share, so his main resolution is to keep a cordial and "friendly" outlook to any who aren't his enemies to keep things on good terms and keep acquiring more points in the long run. Jedi is older and had to do some soul searching post-66, trying to figure out where the Order went wrong and where, or even if, things can start anew. Getting rescued by a now famous/infamous group of screwballs and professional thieves working for the Rebels for the purpose of helping a Force sensitive kid better control her powers was not the wake-up call he was expecting, but perhaps the one ne needed. He doesn't particularly agree with the pair's points of view and has expressed worry if it's going to harm the kid's development as a Jedi, but at the same time wonders if that's the old Order's orthodoxy clouding his judgement again.For what it's worth, Zira likes all of them and sees 'em as family.>>76081329I was pleasantly surprised to see him come up with the idea, since they've been so busy with their own plotlines that they weren't giving much thought to the survivors.
>>76081525Add some Ayss faction to the mix. Twis watning to create they own space, Trandoshans Hunting preserves and stuff like that. They could have done so much stuff instead of the Sith vs Jedi, Rebs vs Emps.Like there are other Force sensitive orders, like the Night Sisters than have multi planetary Shadow organitzations.And talking about Night Sisters, they Actually Steal the Force in the Six season, and they seem able to create force sensitives like Savage.Perhaps the empire is doing that in Mando, only with tech instead of witchery.

Demoed Legion the other day - it was fun, but pretty slow going. Is it usual for games to take 2-3 hours or more, or were we just slow?I want to start a Droid army, is there anything I should know? Anything to avoid or must-haves?I was thinking of starting with two starter sets, the tank and some commando droids
>>76082139What does the box say?If you were demoing the game, you should have at least read the box and rules, which these days include the "take X amount of time to play" for all the add kids.Short answer: sounds right, especially if you never played before.
>>76082139>Demoed Legion the other day - it was fun, but pretty slow going.>Is it usual for games to take 2-3 hours or more, or were we just slow?legion is one of the faster wargames, in my experience, due to the 6-turn limit and streamlined turn processbut 2-3 hours does seem about right for games not involving 11 acts on both sidesit is slower than X-wing if thats your main point of comparisonand you will get faster the more you play and the less you look at the rulebook>I want to start a Droid army, is there anything I should know? Anything to avoid or must-haves?you are the most balanced faction in the game currently, most units are viable and can be used well with practicecurrently, you dont really have much choices, but the STAP and B1 are easily your best choicesfor commanders both grievous and dooku are good picks, some even go for both>I was thinking of starting with two starter sets, the tank and some commando droids2 starter sets is a very good ideaits the best way to fill up on corp slots and you will need those extra dice, extra barricades is icingonly hard part is the spare commanders, guess you can paint themcommando droids arent a bad idea, they have a statline that makes the scoutroopers and pathfinders crythey also provide your sniper and sabateour unit, so its inevitable you will play thisas for the tank, ill just let you know that during the august gencon tourney, both the CIS lists on the top 8 were tank listsan AAT and a double AAT listthis might change once the BX makes more of a competitive splash, but currently tanks are good
>>76082259>>76082139minor additionSTAPs and BXs are getting very popular, more so than the tanktanks still alright, but the BX adds a lower cost range 4 option compared to itBX looks like a really solid purchase all in all

However I feel like you'll have some trouble getting the most out of it, since you're gonna want to be feeding your card orders to Leia/Luke/Airspeeder, even though your Veterans want orders as well. Best way to solve it is to try and build an Order chain via one Veteran unit with an HQ uplink and a bunch of comms relays on the Mark IIs to get all your Vets and the FD cannon an order.I'd recommend you play the Airspeeder rather conservatively with a list like this; since if you send it up the field turn 1 on its own its just gonna blow up pretty much instantly without doing much; the airspeeder needs threat saturation to work well. Have it either fly up the flank, or let it engage the opponents army as they close the gap with your gunline. Always try to force them into having to choose between the airspeeder and a different target.
>>76082259Cheers mate. I thought they seemed decent on paper, but I've played all of one game, and it was with imperials, not droids.I'm not a super competitive gamer, but I'd rather avoid wasting money on dead purchases, so I'm glad to hear that stuff is decent - the tank looks super cool.What's the usual points limit people play at? Or is it a bit all over the place?

A quick dumb question, does wotc not have the rights to any of their old Star Wars books like d20 and saga edition? or does FFG have the rights to all of it?Just wondering because I'm annoyed that there's no star wars books on drivethrurpg.
>>76084394They don't have the rights to publish them anymore, no. Once the deal ran out the spigot was closed. Further i don't think any of the d20 books had official pdfs for sale. You CAN however find the pdfs on the trove. There's also d6 pdfs on several websites, because the company West End Games is 100% defunct and there's no one around to really sue anymore over it.
I had a nightmare last night that Vatnik bought out Disney and rebooted the movies with Luke and Leia Skywalker joining the Empire and being portrayed as the good guys.
>>76078436Hoping jango Fett Clone Stormtrooper Phase Zero and their cold storage like Alpha Arcs
>>76084428Ok, thats what I thought. Just kind of sucks that ffg isn't selling any of the old stuff other than the WEG anniversary book. I really just want a physical copy of the Saga edition Unknown Regions without paying $175 for it.

>>76084394>>76084428>>76084492There's a weird legal contract rule from LucasFilm going back to the WEG days where technically PDFs of RPG content counts as "electronic games," so WotC and FFG don't actually have the license rights to sell PDFs of their RPGs. WotC did do some errata and at least one new class/class specialization via PDFs, but that's about as far as it went.
The Dark Times era of Star Wars lore is the most interesting.It's at its best when it utilises Clone Wars/Prequel era technology and aesthetics (in a decaying, rusting, outdated sort of way) alongside Empire/Original trilogy era technology and aesthetics as the galaxy transitions to the new order.The video games The Force Unleashed and Jedi Fallen Order did this really as well- so did some of the later Clone Wars episodes. And a lot of the old Dark Horse comics, specifically the Dark Times comic series and the Purge standalone comic, are the peak of this.
>live in Sweden>barely any Legion shit in physical stores Where do Swedes here buy online?
>>76085308Nej idea Sven.
>>76085308No one buys Legion, I ordered a bunch of shit a month ago but the supply lines are just dead because FFG fucking sucks
https://youtu.be/c9gUseLeMOwSomehow... Valkorion has returned.
is this an original design, or can anyone recognize it?
>>76085456Oh fuck you Fagorion! I blasted your spiritual ass to bits in my subconcious already and then there was one time my jedi character impaled your corporeal ass with some giant stone spikes!
>>76085537I think this marks the fifth time he will die within the game's timespan.
>>76085517Seems original, but looks like Stars wars at least.
>>76085598>the fifth timeChrist, that's a level of writer laziness rivaled only by the guys who keep bringing Darth Maul back.
>>76085456its like pottery
>>76084120Is there Jania and Smol Jania?
>>76085456>How many times do we have to teach you old manAt this rate he'll resurface post legacy along with his new new secret empire
>>76085672They are one and the same
>>76084935not necessarily, since most people call Counts by their last name
>>76085456STAY DOWN OLD MANWHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE SHEEV???
>>76085712He should hire Darth Maul. Then they can become galactic laughingstocks together.
>>76085456I thought his dad put him in Sith Timeout forever?
>>76085456Whose a bigger jobber, Valky or The Empire?
>>76085660In their defense, he was easily the coolest thing in the prequels and shouldn't have been killed in the first movie to begin with.
>>76085848Valky. At least the Empire can strike back
>>76085517fairly certain its not something in star wars but it looks an awful lot like something from a late 90s-early 00s scifi tv show or video game, couldn't specify where though, the design is too vague and generic
>>76085456I thought SWTOR was put into maintenance mode years ago, its getting new content now?
theres something so alpha about the rear facing guns on blockade runners, just assuming at all times that the enemy will have to chase you down.
>>76081278>Honestly it feels like we're getting close to the end of this "arc" they're in, but my players definitely are up for more. They also want to participate in the Battle of Endor, saying it's a good through line for the journey the ship's been through.Let em. It would make Sheev seethe.
>>76086417From where did you get this kino shot?
>>76086417now that I'm looking at it side by side with a cr90 it looks way too overdesigned, nearly as bad as fractalsponge shit
>>76086358Bioware Austin got tasked with doing the life service work on Anthem, when that died a horrible death right out of the gate they got shifted back to actively developing TOR. If the 2.0 reboot of Anthem sticks the landing I'm sure they will go back to working on that and TOR goes back to sleep.
>>76086358they trickle out a half hour of new content per year, if that
Bump limit reached, time for another storytime."So I heard you guys liked Mandalorians?"-Star wars Legacy
>>76086605YA BLEW IT
>>76086605>Storytime anon forgets to post the picLook at him and laugh!
>>76086623Todays info page was brought to us by Babyface the hutt.
>>76086648Behold! Legacy era mandos!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4dopv9TrvI
>>76085456>vIdeo's been up for two days>30k viewsThat's fucking sad
>>76086709Thanks for our daily dose mando doc.
>>76086737Noooo! Mando doc! You will be avenged!
>>76086754Vevec is a true bro to the end
>>76086754>The mad lad who tried to knife a sith to death and then joined the rogue squadron was actually a mando all along
>>76086779Meanwhile in present.
>>76086877I give you, Babyface the hutt.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ln1_HB-gckw
>>76086893Oh no! It's Mandalorian genderbent Isaac Clarke!
>>76086893what's wrong with your FAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE
>>76086492One is a stock ship and one is heavily modified, the millennium falcon looks just as greebly compared to a CR90. Appreciate that Day can actually do a faithful CR90 in contrast to a heavily modified custom job, rather than having it all in one over-textured style. It's a 4k computer model and not a kitbash from 50 years ago, that's theoretically a feature and not a bug.
>>76087028Reject republic, return to mando.
>>76087050And with that we get a little info dump on color meanings in Mando culture and an ending for todays story.Till next time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGLebmo6oNM
>>76085801>>76085712>>76085598in the distant year of 2022 the Legacy update will show Valkorion teaming up with Darth Krayt in the Jobber Empire extraordinaire "back from the dead" challenge, and they'll keep 1-upping each other and being surprised when the other comes back from the dead.>>76085848Valky manages to narrowly job harder than Darth Krayt's empire, which at least managed a successful and somewhat decently thought out plot to sabotage a galaxy-wide terraforming effort as the causus belli to get rid of the jedi.>>76086492if they smoothed out some of the panels it wouldn't be so rough looking, especially on the pre-engine block angles where the tubes run across.
>>76081392Thanks, I've enjoyed writing it thus far. Myto Prime and all of its planets are going to be sources for big shenanigans, so very excited for that.
>>76086779Make sense, there isn't much other people in the galaxy with the total lack of self-preservation needed to look at a Sith and go "I don't know who this fucking retard is but I'm gonna stab him right and proper"
>>76084753>weg's antivat word saladle sigh.
>>76084821INTENSIFY FORWARD GREEBLES!
>>76084779Did they name palpatine's kid from ros?
>>76086935All that spa mud, is works wonders on his face. Not necessarily good wonders, but still.
>>76087071Honestly seem a pretty reasonable mando, not affraid of putting a shiv between a Sith ribs and not taking any of that "Huuur Duuur Mandalore was secretly a Sith Agent" shit. Mandalore the Last being secretly manipulated by TOR Sith Empire was retarded and is a shit retcon, it took away from a conflict that was for once not another fucking Jedi-Sith War. The Indomitable being bro to Urlic was cool tough, but he was open about it
