>all those fucking news articles defending and shilling this shit


<Star Wars: Forces of Destiny has been focused on elevating the women of the galaxy since the start. From Leia to Rose Tico, Maz Kanata to Padme, Rey to Sabine and beyond, the animated shorts have been an utter delight. As Disney releases the show’s second season, I was moved to explore the radical nature of utilizing cartoons to give space and time to women who’re often written out of some of the more important moments in galactic history, and the joy of getting to learn even more about these characters that’ve become so important to us over the years.

>women were never in galactic history

<Though Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is ostensibly a marketing tool for Disney to sell toys to girls, that has historically led to the creation of some of the most beloved cartoons in the world. Shows like Transformers, G.I. Joe, He-Man, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all conceived as a way of selling toys to children during an age of strict rules about advertising to children. Because of this, many of our nostalgic favorites don’t always hold up. Although Forces of Destiny fits this model, it elevates the form by creating gorgeous shorts which add to our understanding and knowledge about the women of the Star Wars universe, building on important moments in canon as they create a more inclusive vision of the galaxy we grew up with.

ITT we talk about laser swords.

So what's the deal with synth crystals? I thought they were pretty much Sith-exclusive, not just by tradition but because the Sith were encouraged to channel their hate and anger into the crystals while forging them, meaning you were couldn't create a synth crystal without calling on the dark side. But a while back I was browsing Wookiepedia, and apparently everyone in the NJO uses synthetics? Do they ever try finding the old crystal planets, or discover new ones?

You know what, I'll just change to the Revanchist symbol. I've tried other symbols and seen others in other threads, and I think I like this one the best.


You have to wonder how the Mandalorians lost the Mandalorian War if they were such badasses. Maybe they just weren't all Fett-tier fighters, or maybe if Jango was in charge of that group of Mandalorians, they would have done better, but you have to wonder about how every time a Fett is set up to fight a powerful Jedi, some weird coincidence happens to make the Fett lose. Jango got trampled by a random monster and Boba was thwarted by Han activating his jetpack completely by accident. I guess there's no substitute for having the will of the Force on your side.



>Jango took out at least eight battle-ready Jedi knights on Galidraan, as well as a Jedi Master specializing in the single best style for fighting blasters on Geonosis.

Having thought about this some more, Coleman Trebor might have won against Jango, but he was trying to fight Dooku and Jango at the same time. Between them, they have all three rings of defense covered. Coleman could have closed in on Jango and gotten close enough that he couldn't properly aim his blasters, which is basically what Mace did to win, but if Coleman had done that, Dooku would have cut him down, as evidenced by Dooku's Makashi beating Obi-Wan's Soresu both times in the movies, and Obi-Wan is said to be the best Soresu practitioner in the Order, so if he couldn't beat Dooku with it, Coleman definitely couldn't. He needed proper backup, if not from other Jedi then from clone troopers, and even then he probably would have lost to Dooku. His attempt was a foolhardy and un-Soresu-like act.



That’s true, but I’m not talking about the EU, but this weird thing where the filmmakers (including possibly George Lucas himself) seem to have a clear idea that Mandalorian armor is lightsaber-resistant to some degree, but this never seems to quite make it into the final cut of the films.


>lol Mandalorian Wars

If I recall my EU history, it was a combination of Revan being just *that* good in his newfound role as Space Rommel combined with the fact that the Mandalorians were attempting to take on more or less the entire galaxy for whatever reason, so even if the average Mando warrior could regularly take on ten Republic soldiers and win (I remember reading that somewhere years ago before the dark times…before the Disney purchase) there were still trillions more to replace them. The fact that they got as far as they did was I think partially explained in the old KotOR comics as being the result of disunity and factiousness in the Republic, which prevented large-scale mobilization against the invasion in its early days and also served as a recruiting tool for the Mandalorian armies, since, as ever, huge numbers of people outside the Core had reasons to resent/hate the Coruscant-based government.

>lol will of the Force

Otherwise known as “plot armor,” but there’s something even greater at work in the galaxy: popularity power. ;-)


*Was* Trevor trying to guard against Dooku? Seems to me Dooku was just passively standing there, while Trebor had all his attention focused on Jango (whom it really doesn’t make sense to dispute as an effective fighter against Force-users, because that’s kind of the whole narrative point for his being the template of the Jedi-killing Clone Army in the first place). On another note, though, this kind of touches on why I’ve never liked the idea of lightsaber “forms” as introduced in the Prequels, or at least how that idePost too long.

>so even if the average Mando warrior could regularly take on ten Republic soldiers and win (I remember reading that somewhere years ago before the dark times…before the Disney purchase) there were still trillions more to replace them.

Canderous talks about how they were outnumbered and outgunned in KotOR, but they still did quite a bit of damage.

>Seems to me Dooku was just passively standing there, while Trebor had all his attention focused on Jango

The fact that Dooku was even there made him a factor in the fight by default. It takes a fraction of a second to ignite a lightsaber and go from "just standing there" to "whooping some ass." Any attempt to get close to Jango would have had to go through Dooku.



Maybe it’s my unwillingness to sit through every episode of CG Wars, but I don’t recall that Dooku ever been shown to take “a fraction of a second to go from ‘just standing there’ to ‘whooping some ass’” on another Jedi without prior warning. It just doesn’t seem to be in accordance with his character.

They'll be releasing their 2.2 update by the end of the month, final testing is ongoing right now. So get your foot in the door while you can.


We are getting the Empire of that mustachioed maverick as a playable faction in 2.2. Counting him, we have

>The Imperial Remnant (arguably the most significant in-game faction thanks to the Era System)

>The Pentastar Alignment of Powers

>Warlord Zsinj's Empire

>The Eriadu Authority

>The Greater Maldrood

>The Duskhan League (doesn't come out of isolation until later, of course)

>and finally The Empire of the Hand for some truly alien opponents

Eight playable factions in total, each with their own unique unit lists and playstyles. How do you like that?

Agreed. I actually really like the concept of a Mongol-style extragalactic invading force. I just don't think the specific implementation of that idea in the form of the Vong worked out very well.



As did I. I like the idea of what the vong meant and some of their backstory, but their execution, writing and effect on the setting left a lot to be desired.

>Frank Herbert mentioned Norma only once in his original books - In God Emperor of Dune Leto briefly notes that it was she who designed the first Guild ship, rather than her more famous lover, Aurelius Venport. However, her role in the Legends of Dune prequels and later in the Sequels of Dune is increased to the point where she is one of the most pivotal characters in Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Expanded Dune universe.

…I didn't even know Dune had an expanded universe until today. And now that I do…

>he read anything Dune not written by Frank and expected it to be good

What, were you a fresh-faced little guy once who craved more Dune?



I’ve never actually read any of the Kevin Anderson Dune books. Finding out about them merely increased a pre-existing dislike of KJA, but that particular example seemed like a good way to briefly answer the question about whether his writing displays proto-SJW-ish aspects.

A much younger version of myself tried reading one of them immediately after completing Frank's Dune books. This was before I had ever heard of Anderson or knew any of his other work.

They are, as you would expect, absolutely horrible. Mind-numbingly bad.

lads, i'm bored. i know on the old board, someone brought up the idea of us re-visiting the EU and doing our own shit, i'd like to attempt to revitalize that idea and form our own comprehensive EU, by picking and choosing the best stuff, leaving out the silly nonsense, and continuing any unfinished storylines, and maybe create some new ones too.

now first, we'll have to compile a definitive list of what's to be our canon. the old rule was that until george made something that would override it, it was basically canon, unless it was like a comic or video game, those were non-canon from the start. however, some of the very best eu material is either a comic or game, so that rule is gonna go out the window and we'll fit in shit where we see fit. also, in the case of say general grievous, we'll obviously go with the shuttle crash and shit like hypori and 2d clone wars (personally i think there exists a possible balance of the 2d and 3d shows).

i know i'm asking a lot since we aren't a very active board, but the last thing i want to do is post this on a pleb board like /tv/ or a pleb fan site like theforce.net, though i'm sure they would be helpful to some extent, i wouldn't want them to have any form of final say or anything.

so, who's down?

I think Dawn of the Jedi, and any other works that misinterpret the dark/light dichotomy of the Force as Eastern dualism instead of Western good and evil could do with a soft reboot. The Vong arc could also be reworked to be a little less full of skub I'm guessing that if they didn't BTFO so many fan favorite planets so completely and irrevocably they'd be a lot more accepted. BDSM Tyranids are still a little weird for Star Wars, but the galaxy (and beyond) is a big place, no?, and I'm guessing most anons would prefer to ignore most of TOR and its tie-in literature.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


>the dichotomy

Ah, this. I must disagree on the grounds that Star Wars wouldn't be what it is without the blend of East and West. On the contrary, I'd rather it stressed more that the Jedi and Sith are caught in a cycle of hatred over what they both did to each other in the past, and they are both also a flawed interpretation of each Side of the Force. It is the Sith who remember why they hate the Jedi, and the Jedi have forgotten that origin point, either deliberately or by accident.


Wouldn't the horror of their invasion be made somewhat lame if they only went after planets made up for the occasion, though? I can agree on it needing revision, but if the objection is to change instead of bad writing, the complaint looks childish. What I really want is for the status quo after the Vong are defeated (perhaps involving the Silentium for maximum poetic justice) to be drastically different. No sweeping a Galaxy-shaking invasion under the rug like it barely happened, I want the Vong to be involved in the politics and wars endemic to place. What's more, that the various forces are on the lookout for things coming from beyond in addition to each other. I'd rather something be done with the Celestials other than that silliness with the Three, for instance. Something involving links to this: >>5459 The return of the Gods, in other words, good and evil beyond measure. Perhaps these Things can even access the great Force-users found in the Netherworld and Chaos for their purposes, bringing warriors from before the Jedi into contact with the present. Antediluvian forces, heh.


I say again, the main premise is sound. What needs doing is redoing it with less silliness and better writing, especially for the Emperor. Less power-wank, more utter creepiness with a mask of charisma.



>Ah, this. I must disagree on the grounds that Star Wars wouldn't be what it is without the blend of East and West.

Oh, don't take that the wrong way, I'm not suggesting that the Sith be reduced to cartoon-villain tier parodies of "evil." Nor do I think the Jedi should be put on some pedestal of perfection either, layered complexity and depth makes for better characterization, more believable worldbuilding, and lays the groundwork for far more interesting plots. I'm just annoyed at the hipsters who insist that only the Eastern facets hold prominence, and that Sith doctrine is just as valid and relatable as Jedi teachings. Or worse, fedora-tipping Grey Jedi going "LOL both sides are dumb, I'm smarter than everyone because my OC DONUT STEEL character with a silver lightsaber can sit on the fence." In my opinion, it works best when the Jedi are undeniably the "good guys," but with a few glaring flaws, and the Sith are indisputably the "bad guys," but with several relatable qualities and ambitions.


I must admit that I've yet to read the Vong books (but they're on my list), I'm just doing my best to interpret the complaints of others as I've seen them

>Wouldn't the horror of their invasion be made somewhat lame if they only went after planets made up for the occasion, though?

These planets can still be attacked, and still marked by war. The impression I got is that people objected to the sheer degree that these places got rekt, becoming so completely changed that they may as well have been destroyed. I feel that this doesn't have near as much story potential as leaving these places intact after the war, but permanently changed. To tie into your next point, examining these places pre- and post-Vong as a case study in how the status quo changes would be much more interesting than just writing off these places as destroyed for some cheap shock value, or them being so different that there's no effective continuity between the pre-war and post-war planet.

I would like to contribute that the Vratix bacta is made from their shit, not some bullshit "excretion" as it was later re-told in cannon sources.



I thought it was pretty well established that KoTOR 1 is the "Jedi" route, and KoTOR 2 is the "Sith" route in terms of cannon? That always made the most sense to me, with Revan being a dude and the Exile being a grill.


So how much of the Zann consortium and the events of Empire at War are we considering cannon since it's legitimately one of the better Star Wars games?

You're all wrong



I did not like that about the game. Even then Mon Mothma was sitll one of the people involved so it doesn't technically violate what >>12155 said.



That was actually one of the weaker aspects of the game's story, but still, Starkiller wasn't the "First Rebel", and simply helped to inspire them against the Empire. Even if I'm not fond of that aspect of Force Unleashed's story, its still a million times better than the bland and soulless effort to push Garrera. Starkiller felt alive and it was a fleshed out story, and Garrera is just cheap CW fanwank using one of the most irrelevant characters they had, probably because he was one of the few blacks on the show, and just dropping him into the shitty new canon by constantly tying him with that Jan Ors knock off.

Am I the only one who VASTLY prefers the prequel era to the original trilogy era? There's so many intriguing stories, characters and concepts in there, the movie execution may have been a bit shoddy but when you include all the EU material, it's really fucking deep. Creeping corruption of the Republic, incredibly awesome antagonists, a surprisingly non-simplistic war fought by expendable biological/mechanical machines and the ethics of doing so, etc.

Meanwhile, I look at the OT and I am bored to death. I actually saw them first, before the prequels even came out and even with the EU material, it's just…so fucking boring. Luke may as well be a cipher, Leia veers between annoying and pointless and Han is a fun archetype, I guess, but he never actually grows out of it or shows depth beyond it. Darth Vader is only really entertaining in the first movie and Sidious was much more compelling in the prequels.

It doesn't help that EU writers seem shackled for creativity when it came to that era and when they did manage to push the boundaries, we got shitfests like the Yuuzhan Vong and Waru.

> those alternative girls from the late 90's and early 2000's that were cool and down to earth

I miss that, I miss it so much I always loved the punk/goth aesthetic



sequel trilogy genius, nobody refers to stormtroopers as STs


anakin's death. the chewbacca thing was this: they were making the story and wanted to kill off a big name, george gave them a list of who they couldn't kill. chewbacca didn't make the list.



I see. Pardon me for that, I was thrown off by your using "original trilogy" in that same sentence; referring to it twice like that seemed redundant so I assumed that wasn't to what you were referring.

>Wait, where did this come up?

>Don't think I've seen much if any /pol/tism over it before now. I'm not inclined to start caring now, unless they're poorly written like Iden or Rey.

Not my point. It's all about characterization. Women in the imperial military were rare, the Galactic Empire was consistently depicted a conservative state, with a human dominated military, basically composed by the male sex, just like any normal military. Not that was impossible to women serve, but that was unlikely, even more as a TIE pilot, which isn't that lowly position that many think.

Daala was an exception, an aberration. Juno Eclipse was created for a video game who fucked up the lore by shoehorning lots and lots of inconsistencies (Starkiller founding the Alliance, rebel leaders schedule to be executed in the DS in front of the Emperor himself, a jedi general with the Alliance, etc, etc). I doubt the game writers took time to read previous material



Hey now. Juno entered canon proper, whatever the events of her debut, in the Essential Guide to Warfare.Check it out when you get the chance. Read the Author's Cut too, they read like a labor of love.



>I wonder if KK's minions fear that they will allow a more sympathetic take on the Empire if they allowed them freer reign.

More than likely. Also too much boobs for KK's liking.

Someone should make a Warhammer edit in there.

>nothing but your fatigues and a flashlight that you looted from a disemboweled guardsman in a field full of gore

>no heretical force is going to save your soy ass from the enemy

>what do you think about that, cuck?

<I think you are fascist

>take off your pants


Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Davis the Wade?



Why do you keep calling everyone here soy as if anyone here liked Disney Wars? Is it just because they don't follow the Warhammer creed? Otherwise, are you going to actually make meaningful conversations or just baitpost all day and night?






The /sp/ Empire has returned!
