Imagine this, Boba Fett's armor was incomplete and he was a roguish character. Give him the full armor, better equipment, and the discipline to fit into an army of similarly equipped and better trained bastards, and that is the Mandalorians. An army of militarized and at one time knighted Boba Fetts.

>> No.10647378

They're those people with armour that deflects light sabre rounds or something right? I don't know my Star Wars fluff well but I know Boba Fett had a suit of their armour.

Boba Fett was cool and has a big cult following but I don't think he could beat up a two hearted acid spitting silverback gorilla wearing a tank.

So I assume Mandalorians can't either.

The real problem I see is heavy bolters. Most Star Wars armor is hardened against projectiles, but we're talking normal infantry weapon projectiles. Not mini-rockets.

>> No.10649110

It's rather debatable, high quality commando armour is capable of stopping shattergun rounds (IE Railguns) however that armour is insanely expensive (Costs more than a tie fighter) and the mass produced armour is likely considerably weaker to maintain low cost.

Furthermore since enemies seem to be using blasters as the weapon of choice, it seems obvious that they'd skimp on kenetic protection for greater energy protection.

....why? I mean, mandalorians where a whole culture of blood knights, fighting for the sake of fighting and screwing people over.

Why is that characterization not good enough? I mean, from a writing point of view, they would work as a wildcard, being able to be on the protagonists or the antagonists' side, and switching sides at a moment's notice.

Keeping them true neutral is much more interesting than turning them nuetral good. And if they are lawful good I swear I will go and kill the producer with my bear hands.

According to me Star Wars would be awesome if it wasn't for all the "HURR DURR I'M A JEDI" fuckwit characters.

>> No.10650859

Jedi are overused, yes and poorly implemented by bad authors.

I could definitely go for some Jedi whose rigid adherence to their order's teaching cause problems with regards to military operations and negotiations. Good-intentioned idiots, more or less, but the Jedi are always supposed open to learning and judging things on their own merit.

What annoys me about Traviss' interpretation is that she goes well above and beyond what is necessary to establish the Jedi as blathering, gape-drooling knuckle-dragging fuckwits who can barely dress themselves in the morning, have never developed proper cognitive thought, and are in capable of coming up with a solution to a problem without sucking off a Mandalorian (or clone). This completely ignores half of the Jedi discipline - the introspective, thinking side that is downplayed in favor of the flashy KILL SHIT WITH LASER SWORDS side.
