Question for the thread: what's your favorite canon/headcanon thing about Star Wars? Not even books or characters, just details that you love.

For example, my favorite canon thing for Star Wars is going to have to be the prophecy for the Valley of the Jedi. And I'm also going to provide a headcanon as an example for that; the idea that anyone, ANYONE can lrn2Force because they're already PART of it. We're told in Empire that it takes hard work and commitment, so why not just make it official?

>> No.34868650

I just had a strange idea about using shipfag's idea that Tyber Zann would have a bust of Xim the Despot on his desk.

What if he patterned himself after the Hutt Opera "Evocar" where Xim was some great liberator of slaves. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kossak_the_Younger

If *anyone* could learn to use the force, then the Jedi Order would just roll up to orphanages and be all "Yeah we'll take everyone under the age of four. Here's a hundred thousand credit donation for the Coruscant Sector 234 Mercy Orphanage, pleasure doing business with you ma'am, we'll see you again in another four years." At any rate they certainly wouldn't be down to ten thousand or so Jedi in the final decades of the Republic from their high of a few million.

Also I suppose you'd see a ton of self help books, "Learn to Harness your true inner potential, become a Jedi Today!" or that kind of thing.

>> No.34868968

Well yeah, that's why it's a headcanon and not an actual one. Though I highly doubt that the Jedi would advertise that OR let some schmuck pick up just enough to be dangerous from self-help books. You'd probably have to find a Master willing to train you and even then it's not going to be easy.
Your average dude would drop it after a while because it's hard and you don't meet many chicks sitting in swamps meditating. Unless you read very specific fics and yes, I KNOW that not every Jedi Master will hang out in a swamp waiting for you to show up, but the best ones do

You are the owner and chief designer of a small mid-rim shipyard concern, primarily focusing on the constructing of licensed light freighters and custom made luxury transports. Recently, Sienar Fleet Systems has fallen out of favor with Imperial Center due to the owner backing the wrong side of a court power struggle. As part of the fallout, the Imperial Navy happens to be in the market for a new space superiority fighter to replace the now politically unfavorable TIE/Ln. As it so happens, you recently completed a custom order for an Imperial Advisor, and they brought your name up with the Emperor. You awaken one morning to find an Admiral at your apartment's door with a demand that you design and produce a prototype fighter for the Imperial Navy, an example of which is to be showcased at Imperial Center within two months. The requirements for the design are that it must stay within a budget of 60,000 credits or less per unit. And remember, small craft shields and secondary weapon systems have recently come back into favor with the Navy's starfighter procurement department, including one of the two in your design will impress powerful people in the navy's hierarchy and make it more likely for the design to be adopted!

>Use the ship creation system of your choice, (I honestly don't really know what there is beyond the ones in Starships of the Galaxy, but feel free to surprise me), ideally staying below a 60k credit budget, though if you get an idea that requires you to go beyond the set budget, by all means go absolutely crazy and knock yourself out.

the absolutely silly fluff that accompanies this design is in the next post

>> No.34874505

The C-88 Invader is a rather unusual fighter design, mixing a number of unusual and downright bizzare design elements to create a decidedly cheap but highly questionable design. the fighter takes most of it's design cues from pre-repulsorlift atmospheric fighter design, mixed with influences from what evidently were reverse-engeneered light freighter designs. the ship's primary weapon is a turret mounted light Ion Cannon, operated by a gunner, a highly unusual design choice in such a small fighter (a mere 8M in length). a secondary weapons system consists of a set of unguided rockets in an internal mounting. notibly, the C-88 is one of a bare handful of fighter designs that totally lacks laser weapons of any type, the reason for this oversight (if that is what it is) is unknown. additionally, unlike every other fighter design, the Ion cannon draws power from a seperate capacitor instead of the main reactor. while this does give the ship a rather impressive top speed for a vessel in it's class, it severely limits the ship's combat endurence. additionally, the vessel is rather inexplicibly equipped with a Class Four hyperdrive, in an attempt to market the design as a patrol craft.

>> No.34874543

This fourth-rate star fighter is manufactured by the Xhan Shi Spaceworks, a small company headquartered on an obscure world on the edge of the unknown regions, and one best known for being the last known manufacturer of Beam Tube weapons, it's only other venture into spacecraft design being the Katogada class Picket Ship, a few centuries ago. these ships are still in production today, although they are not very popular, for obvious reasons. they occupy the questionable niche of sub-30,000 credit brand new starfighters, and are mostly seen in the hands of planetary defence militas on the very edge of the frontier, and in the hands of desperate pirate groups who are unable to obtain better ships. it's only claim to fame was it's preverse inclusion in a series of imperial starfighter contracts, and apparently several thousand of these ships were purchased by the empire as a result of beaurecratic infighting, though their fate is unknown

That design is so delightfully ugly.

I guess I should fluff mine too. The R-Wing was a joint project from a start up company formed out of laid-off Incom engineers and local planetary companies. Ambitious to say the least, the engineers attempted to capture the TIE's mobility and affordability and bring survivability and versatility with a small shield generator and an astromech socket. Intial sales and reviews were good, with seasoned test pilots winning over initial contracts and bids. That was of course, until the Karmuz Incident, where a group of escort R-Wings for a convoy were wiped out to a man by pirates and the sensitive cargo they were guarding plundered. With all hope of major contracts gone due to the widely publicized incident, the snubfighter is only occasionally seen in PDF and Raider forces.

That's Legends, not canon.

Canon now consists only of the six movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, and A New Dawn. Anything new will enter canon as it comes out, of course, but they pruned a LOT.

Also, your Force headcanon may actually not be far from the truth. Episode I is still canon, but let's review Qui-Gon's explanation of midi-chlorians and what they do.

1) "Midi-chlorians are a microscopic life-form that resides within all living cells." So everyone's got 'em. No exceptions. All life has midi-chlorians stuck in its cells.

2) "Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force." So we get the first few things they do: they make life possible (somehow) and they bring knowledge of the Force (somehow).

3) "They continually speak to us, telling us the will of the Force." So this is how they bring us knowledge of the Force: they're saying "HEY LISTEN!" Presumably, this means someone with a higher concentration has more midi-chlorians speaking at once, which makes it easier to pick up on the will of the Force, but they're speaking to everybody.

4) "When you learn to quiet your mind, you'll hear them speaking to you." This actually ties right back into Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back: "You will know, when you are calm. At peace. Passive." So getting in touch with the Force is a matter of quieting your mind so the midi-chlorians can tell you the will of the Force.

Now, the thing is that nothing in the new canon explicitly treats Force-sensitivity as a strict "yes or no" like the EU used to. There is nothing stopping the new canon from, say, allowing Han to learn the ways of the Force. He may not be particularly GIFTED with it, but he could probably learn it if he tried.

Any X-Wing xxxpro_dialerz_xxx around this late?
I recently discovered the glory of Roark Garnet, and was curious what other players though of him after the Wave 4 push towards higher pilot skill.

For a tournament later this week, I'm strongly considering replacing my previous Whisper + cheapstuff list with HWK/X/B/B, or this "combo" jank:
On the other hand, I'm not sure I can handle the mess of combat after the initial clash without Whisper around to flank from the sides and mince key opponents.

Played AoR beginner box this saturday, first time I got to play a tabletop in quite some time.

My group is about to start a Saga campaign and both I and the GM feels the reflex save is a bit broken. I "come" from D&D and this seems to be a bit to simplistic to me. It replaces AC and there's not even a "touch reflex" - armor is always included.
This feels off for two reasons we have found so far. All armor:
- armor actually deflects light sabers (or the very least takes all the damage)
- I play a droid and have a mesh tape dispenser and I couldnt hit anything; my tape wouldnt not stick to their armor.
We tried a quick infiltration encounter against some stormtroopers and we could hardly do anything them because of their superior +6 armor. We had to roll at least 16 to do anything. My attempts to shoot was also met with disappointment.

I have since rebuild my droid to have armor and prioritized dex a bit more even though it kinda goes against my character (though not that much), because I fear for my life - it's a first time GM, this is his second RPG and this is a new system; so I expect a lot of unbalanced encounters.

But as said we both agree that reflex seems broken and he texted a few hours ago that he wanna house rule that armor provides DR instead of reflex bonus.

Do anything have experience with Saga and how to fix it? Im considering if we just have to reinstate Armor Class (by making reflex work more like that.) because I dont think that damage reduction seem like a good option.

Jedi are totally allowed to get laid. That's not the problem.

Let's review WHY Anakin is not allowed to have a relationship, as explained in Attack of the Clones when he's looking for loopholes.

Attachment is forbidden.
Possession is forbidden.
Compassion is essential.

The problem isn't that you're having sex, or even that you love someone, the problem is the conflict of interests. A Jedi must be wholly devoted to doing his duty as a Jedi. Devotion to a specific person gets in the way of that.

It sucks, but a Jedi's life is sacrifice. You're perfectly allowed to leave the order if you can't deal.

Hutts aren't anything special except for their culture and the cultivating they receive. They're either in training to run an organization or running it. Without the org, there's not much to them.

It isn't like Jabba was going to slither his fat slug ass off his dais and banthaslap someone. Hell, left one on one, Leia killed him wearing nothing but a slave bikini and wielding a chain that was supposed to keep HER under control.

Seing as a GM is going to be hard pressed to ever hand over an org that powerful to a PC, a Hutt pc is going to be nothing like what we're used to seeing.

my original point was that jedi, could have been replaced by any other well funded organization dedicated to keeping the peace
and it would have worked out just as fine or even better

True, but IIRC the jedi never asked to be paid.

Let me guess? This is in the republic comics? Aka "All the jedi masters are getting laid" and Obi Wan telling Anakin straight out "Everyone in the Jedi order knows that if you can't find the chosen one he's probably balls deep in the Senator from Naboo."

Probably Bossk, IG-88, maybe Dengar, possibly Jodo Kast if they are lazy and don't want to do much more than modify the Lambda mold.

Definitely Xizor in the Virago and most likely Guri in the Stinger.

It'll either be Ferrier's gunship, one of Zahn's Crusader Corvettes OR a Marauder.

>atm I can recall two cases, one of which had its own comics

More specific citations would be nice.

The comic mentioned in >>34889292
with Mace Windu's parents? That was in Star Wars: Tales. Star Wars: Tales is a creator showcase anthology consisting of stories which, unlike most works, were actually NOT canon until declared otherwise.

In this case, this story is firmly NOT canon; the novel Shatterpoint established that Mace Windu's parents died in the jungles of Haruun Kal by the time he was six months old.

Also, the Jedi Order is actually not Senate-funded. It's not too clear where the money does come from, but they're a monastic religious order, so I would guess probably donations. Jedi aren't paid, though they are given room and board.

The one sounds like Knights of the Old Republic, but the actual reasoning is completely different and has nothing to do with failure to meet expectations. The lead Master onvolved had a vision of the padawans involved in some dark side dealings (been a while since I read the series, but IIRC it was an extremely vague vision of just like one of the padawans in a red space suit), with the "coward" only surviving because he was running late to the meeting.

The other doesn't bring a comic to mind, but Karen Traviss' abominable work - a Jedi died saving a clone she fell in love with from being killed by another Jedi, during the execution of Order 66.

Look, the comic that has Mace Windu and the messages from his parents? That was in Star Wars: Tales 13. The specific story was called Children of the Force. However, if you go check on Wookieepedia, on the article for Star Wars Tales, you'll notice that Tales was considered Infinities, i.e. non-canon "what-if" stories.

SOME Tales stories were later ushered into canon when they were referenced by canon works. This was not one of them.

The novel Shatterpoint, which dealt primarily with Mace Windu and his homeworld of Haruun Kal, established his actual Legends canon backstory. He was an orphan of the Windu clan by the time he was six months old, and was taken in by the Jedi with the clan's blessing.

As for the other comics you are mentioning, I don't know the one with the desert planet, but the comics about a group of Jedi younglings? That would probably be Dark Times. I still have to read through Dark Times.

>> No.34890621

I love how her kneejerk reaction to having Etain called a self-insert was to kill her off and make that space trucker the real self insert.

And by "Love" I mean "Hate"

Also her not realizing that the logic she had Etain use to stay in the Order is pretty much exactly the same as the logic that kept the Order as a whole leading the clones because having a Jedi there helped the clones survive and the Jedi leaving would get more killed.

It's fine for the CHARACTERS to believe that the Jedi were assholes leading a slave army but the admission that she thought that was really fuckin dumb.

It sounds like Dark Times: Fire Carrier and I do NOT remember them killing the shellshocked darkside girl ever getting killed. She ran away and one of the two masters went out to find her.

>> No.34891039

Ia it just me, or would a healthy supply of grenadea with basic telekinesis be the best way to kill in a manner unlikely to be traced to you?

>> No.34891105

>She ran away and one of the two masters went out to find her

if you can please post the related pages anon :)

but from what I remember, after witnessing much violence directed towards her she become aggressive, jedi masters become concerned, they were talking about stuff they will have to do if she wont change and the guy said that it is a great burden and he is afraid of it
then some time later her friend, another twelve year old asked about her
and remaining jedi master told him that she just run away and the other guy went looking for her

>I don't know the one with the desert planet

at the end jedi council appears with their swords blazing, their encircle the padawan and tell him that he failed [ im not sure, but I think that they also give him this crap about fear leading to the dark side ], he starts ensuring them, that he will change, but they don't listen and come closer
then the comics ends

maybe association with the grimderp clouds my judgement, but I don't think, that he gets a candy

Oh THAT desert planet one.

Yeah, that's "The Sith in the Shadow", which is in Star Wars Tales 13 as well, literally the story right before Children of the Force in that issue. It also features Mace Windu, and the kid is his Padawan.

They didn't kill him. They lit up because otherwise the room was way too fucking dark to see, and also to let him know they were there. It ends with Mace Windu saying "all right, come along, we're leaving, you failed your Jedi training" implying he's going to be expelled or shunted off to the Agri-Corps or something.

Of course, since it's also Tales, it's also ambiguously canon.

I hate to shatter your perceptions, but no. When upgrading, you start with the big number in Ability / Difficulty dice and then swap out the little number's worth for Proficiency / Challenge. 3/1 turns into GGY, 5/2 turns into GGGYY, 4/3 turns into GYYY.

>> No.34891775


Nope, you swap dice. You start with a number of Ability Dice equal to the larger number, then upgrade a number of them into Proficiency dice equal to the smaller number. So Agility 3 Ranged (Light) 2 would result in a ranged light check of one ability die and two proficiency dice.

If you haven't been swapping, you're probably bored by how much you've been succeeding on tasks, and annoyed by how many dice you have to roll all at once.

Essentially, some fucker came in out of the blue a couple weeks back and bought every Rebel ship from Waves 1, 2, and 3, all the dice packs, and every core set, leaving Wave 4 and the various TIEs and Lambdas untouched. Since it looks like FFG's having supply issues with older stuff, it wouldn't surprise me if that $600 pile of 10% off MSRP models went straight back onto the market.
Who knows if they'd do the same to Aces, and I think the store may have caught onto it afterwards anyway.
