It's meant to be a tool of fear and power that immediately destroys a peaceful planet, which is why when it's revealed to the greater galaxy that it garners so much sympathy for the Rebellion. There's no real sugar-coating it.

At best, you could probably go the "Palpatine is not dead" route and make it seem like it's Rebel propaganda in some way, but that'd be difficult for even the Empire to do since an entire planet was destroyed and Rebels obviously don't have the power/resources to take out planets and blame the Empire.

Does anyone ever explain how slavery remained viable in a technologically advanced interstellar society where droids can do any labor for nothing by maintenance costs and without any of the hassle? It's not like Dune or 40k where robot rebellion has made them taboo or something. Droids are everywhere, and for some reason slavery isn't obsolete yet.

>> No.43047785

>for nothing but maintenance costs
typo there, sorry

>> No.43047829

I guess you'd want droids for the insanely hazardous stuff that people/aliens couldn't possibly survive in- high radiation, zero-gee and toxic atmospheres.
But intelligent beings do have their advantages, they don't nearly need as much supervision as a droid does to do their work and can do a fair few of the more delicate and finesse tasks like husking precious seed pods, filleting meat, massages and all those kinds of things.

Plus, they might just be for all intents and purposes- cheap.
Roll up on a civilisation, blasters set to stun and fill the holds with unfortunates. Fly back to wherever and sell them.
Course the upkeep in terms of food, housing and the like 'might' be more expensive, but on low-tech planets where a droid technician could be a rare skillset, parts aren't available, oil-baths and diagnostic gear just isn't readily available, I guess slavery makes sense and still gets shit done.

>> No.43047836

Well, remember that slavery has been illegal in the Republic since forever, and even the Sith didn't utilize it for their entire history. In KOTOR, slaves of the Sith seem more like the quaint pastime of noble douchebags rather than an institutionalized thing. The only long-term slavery we see for most of the series' history are women enslaved because of RotJ Leia setting such a sexy trend, and the Hutts enslaving people for any and all reasons because, let's face it, the Hutts are slithering assholes.

Other than that, I know they tried to shoehorn a droid rebellion into the setting's ancient past, but obviously it didn't affect much since Star Wars droids have not only been commonplace for thousands of years, but they're also some of the most human and emotional robots in any science fiction as long as they go without memory wipes.

So, I think the prevalence of slavery in Star Wars is the same as it is in real life. It's illegal in most of the Galaxy and very much frowned upon, but there will always be a market for selling sapient women into brass bikinis.

>> No.43047850

Don't forget the Death Star, anon. The Empire worked I don't even know how many sapients to death to build a battlestation that probably would've taken one decade, not two, if they just stuck with a fuckton of droids. That was all labor, not sex slavery.

>> No.43048199

They blend well. Some rules override others, like for example lightsabers in EotE are stated absurdly well where as they toned that down a bit when officially making a skill to actually wield the damn thing. I think F&D characters might get more to them in terms of powers, and a lightsaber is a devastating weapon even with the retcon nerf to them, but thematically the games all work well together. Our group has had no problem saying "pick from any of these 3 books"

>> No.43048201

Each player got to make their own Sith Lord to challenge our party down the line, and also to occasionally switch over to and play against, since all the Sith at the time are competing with each other even more than they're fighting the Jedi. Mine, known to most of the Galaxy as "The Sarlaac" is a powerful Hutt secretly controlling most of the Cartel behind every other Hutt's back while positioning himself against the other Sith and the vestigial Republic and trying to find a good replacement for his apprentice (we killed both of his so far, and he's possibly trying to tempt our PCs into trying to join him). Most of the galaxy thinks of him as little more than a powerful crime lord and he's the only Sith Lord we haven't physically encountered yet as his space station is impossible to find (we tricked our DM into revealing it's orbiting Sleyheron, but our PCs haven't figured it out yet).

All around, he hasn't been the most antagonistic villain for us so far, and the other Sith Lords have actually tried to kill us, but my DM's playing him just as I intended, as an extremely patient and far-seeing schemer with a mastery over a vast network of droid soldiers. And organic soldiers. He's also by far the oldest Sith Lord in our game so far.

That's good to hear. Also, is there any upside to being a Dark Side force user in FaD?

>> No.43048364

Yes. So force powers are hard to explain but you roll a force die based on your force rating to use a power. There's an equal amount of black and white pips, but white get some pips clumped together in packs of 2. Basically what I'm saying is you're more likely to roll black than white. If you get a black side you can treat that as ammo for your force power if you're desperate, but it's considered tapping into the dark side.

>> No.43048381

I see. So it's somewhat easier to generate dark side points then?

>> No.43048416

You're more likely to get a single DS pip than a single light side pip, but the Light gets more doubles

>> No.43048430

Yes, the dark side is the easier but sometimes less powerful way is basically what they're going for here. I don't know the full details, never played force sensitive myself but that's the basic requirement to use a force power as I understand.

>> No.43048434

Gotcha, so it's a quantity vs. quality thing. Dark side gets more results, Light side gets better results. That makes sense.

Since the PCs decided to back up the Sith Empire during the Old Republic era, the Republic.

Currently they're committing war crimes on Korriban, 1 PC shot a kid in the head and then raped a twi lek. He then defended it saying he's a Trandoshan merc so he should be allowed plus it's a battlefield so he's allowed to do it saying that no one could recognize him underneath his armor.

Then his friend shot the kid's mom in the head to end her pain and let a Sith Soldier choke and rape to death the twi lek that the Trandohsan had earlier.

All the while the Mandolorian just looked at them like what the fuck, and then made a mental note to leave them for dead if they're caught.

Out of all of them, the Mando has the highest sense of morality.

Meanwhile, the Republic is mobilizing their newest weapon to fight the Sith.

>> No.43049220

Each time you try to use a Force power, you roll Force dice equal to your Force rating. Usually you need at least one Light Side pip to show up, but you can use a Dark Side pip if you gain 1 Conflict. You also gain Conflict for doing bad stuff, ranging from 1 point for inaction in the face of evil to 10+ points for murder. At the end of each session you lose morality equal to your conflict, but you also gain 1d10 morality. Morality starts at 50, and you only actually fall to the Dark Side when you reach 20. Once you've officially fallen, you can no longer use Light Side pips at all, you still gain Conflict for using the Dark Side, and it fucks up the way the party's Destiny Points work.

It's complicated, but the long and short of it is that you can draw upon the Dark Side now and then without ever actually falling. You can steal and Force choke people and still actually go up in morality if you roll well.

Keep them as having been that weird 3rd player in the jedi-sith wars, but make them culturally stagnant. Like, everyone else moved on, but the mandalorians are just this world full of hard core traditionalists that are just waiting on the edges of their seats for a proper war between the jedi and sith to fuck right up. Meanwhile, certain families or individuals who get tired of training for a war tehy think won't happen, leave to make use of all that training they got (bounty hunters). THese are regarded poorly by their more faithful kin.

Honestly, I'm okay with a lot of the concepts behind the Protectors/Traviss-style mandos, if you remove how much masturbating Traviss did about them.

They have an ancient culture of war and conquest. Their armor has (or had) some quality or significance to be known around the galaxy as "mandalorian armor". But to counterpoint Jedi and Sith, they usually have strong family or clan ties. They constantly train for war, but when there is no war to fight for Mandalore, Mandos are okay getting paid to fight with other people. They have a big cultural chip on their shoulder about Sith/Jedi (who they often regard as two sides of the same thing), and love chances to fight either. Because they're a scattered, almost nomadic people, they have to have a culture which reinforces and teaches itself - giving you something resembling Resol'nare, some quick cultural basics you can teach anybody and they're "mandalorian".

The people of Mandalore are proud and strong, warriors of great renown. Joyous in battle, despairing in defeat.
Once they had enough might to best the Republic, and they did so in their gleaming armor that seemed to reflect any blast that struck it. It is said that their warriors could even stand against the mystical powers of the mysterious Jedi Knights, but none who live have seen such a thing.
When not fighting, they farm and experiment with smithing, shipwright-ery, and occasionally with trade. Though they are known to raid more than engage in open exchange.
But that was a long time ago, when the Jedi roamed the galaxy in adventures and committing deeds of great derring do, or turning their great skills to selfish ends. Now the people of Mandalore live much as they always have; they farm, they build ships, and they even trade openly. Though yes, neighbors are still faced with the occasional raiding party.
The way of the warrior is part of Mandalore's glorious past and some still follow it to no shame of their kinsmen. Many of these strike out to find a good fight, others find coin in the hunting of others, and some take up a great cause.

But there are those who ape Mandalore in their ways or their armaments who have not earned them and do not honor them. If they were still as warlike as their ancestors, these peoples might have been run down, but the galaxy has been too peaceful in that of late.
Perhaps they have truly changed, perhaps Mandalore only waits for one more big war to awaken again.

Three not-Sith who fancy themselves the heirs to the Empire, each of whom were personally wronged by Palpatine in the past and each of whom think they can run the Empire better than the others.

What they're actually doing is serving an ancient Dark Side entity who seeks to resurrect herself with a physical form by continuing the cycle of pain and war that powers the dark side, which was weakened by Palpatine's death. Even their deaths benefit her by letting the next in line take over and continue the cycle.

The Jedi in my campaign were fractured and outcasts from the Republic (set a while before the movies) and the padawan trial was basically ripped off from KOTOR. You have to recite the code, though I tried to have the master NPCs trick the students or test their wisdom on it. Then build your own lightsaber, and I wish the Gathering episode of TCW was out back then because I would have ripped that off as well. Instead I kind of rushed through giving them crystals without any trial of the soul within, which in retrospect was extremely fucking boring. And finally they had to face a dark side challenge in a cave, some of which was facing dark side ghosts of themselves and others were fighting corrupted beasts.

The Knight trials were more fun for me to write because I skipped the 5-trial system in canon and went for a rip off of the Quarian Pilgrimage from Mass Effect. A padawan must go on a journey into the galaxy alone while their Master remains in the temple and meditates, guiding them through the Force or at least making sure to keep some track on their students while they're alone. The goal is for the padawan to find something, anything that can help to reconstruct the Order, while helping anyone and everyone in need along their journey, until finally, the Force will guide them to another Jedi temple and their pilgrimage will be complete. Then they get knighted.

My players were early NJO Jedi (Jedi Academy Era), so their "trials" weren't formal, but they did undergo them in spirit over the course of adventures, mostly in excavating an old Jedi Temple.

They followed the wook outline; Skill was a set of fairly standard athletic challenges, requiring someone to display multiple physical talents. Courage was fighting a set of training droids armed with Ancient Swords. Flesh was a door which was like the gom jabbar, but with less poison. Insight was the most complex, there was a pool of mirrored water with something important in it - they solved it the second way, by being calm and reciting the Jedi Code, rather than to figure out how to search the pool they couldn't see into.

I brought spirit back in later, when they cracked open a Rakatan vault and found dark side wooj inside and faced mirrors of themselves in a skill challenge like the one in the adventure in the back of FaD.

Well, again, depending on the continuity, beskar can be super-invincible, just wearing it over chest and head is pretty solid.

In Rebels, the armor is tough enough that Sabine takes one in the head and one in the chest from a pistol, and while the impact floors her she's able to walk it off right after. It's a sight better than Laminate, where taking one in the torso at the very least incapacitates you - even if you're not dead.

3: do as much as you can to avoid waifus, for they are the bane of quests; I would honestly recommend simply having the protag be happily married; it would be pretty odd for an officer of sufficient rank and age to command a Warship not to be, and it would eliminate waifuposting
4: decide at the start if there's going to be a main plotline or semi-sandbox. for a naval campaign, both are possible
5: ignore write-ins which wouldn't make sense for the PC (this will help immensely when the edgefags come around)

It seems pretty definite that Force Unleashed 1/2's events didn't happen. Kyle Katarn's stuff is probably completely gone, though we'll have to wait until Rogue One to know for sure.

Make him find tons of Jedi/Sith books/holocrons he'll never use. Make him encounter an evil force-sensitive that promises him that he'll learn to use the force, but ends up just using the PC to further his own evil deeds.

You know, that would be one of the rare times I don't cringe at something extremely fanficcy. Especially since Ventress lives just long enough to pop out a Maris. I guess the only problem is Ventress and Savage kind of lose any spark they had as soon as Maul shows up. Would've loved more episodes of Ventress hunting him for that bounty and fucking his brains out while big bro Maul was busy forming his army. Savage can enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

Both A-Wings and B-Wings, plus the TIE Advanced, appear much earlier. Likely squints will too.
To borrow a term /co/ likes to use and get triggered over, most of it is "dubious" where nothing has overwritten it but it still isn't canon until it gets a mention in a new material and that outside of what is canon is also unknown.

We know the Zann Consortium and Black Sun both exist for example as both were in Uprising. We know Xizor does as well. We have the YT-2400, and Sabine's story hints as Imperial occupation of Mandalore.

Shadows of the Empire isn't canon, but parts of it are and Disney may very well make it canon again.

Yeah, I'm sure he does, but in the case of the "glass/transparisteel" thing I actually can't blame him. Star Wars EU is filled with asinine terms for things that don't need them and can be easily described with basic terminology. It's a not-so-common common convention of good writing that you avoid bogging down your reader with made-up words that can be easily be replaced with common terms and phrases. "Transparisteel" is a perfect example because like I said it's awkward to say and is totally meaningless beyond being a word some fuck made up so he could pat himself on the back for "solving" one of the thousands of things in Star Wars physics tells us shouldn't exist.

Which sounds more concise?

To be fair, the pre-Disney canon is they were an evolution of the Jedi Starfighter design, which had retconned the "response to Interceptor" story from before the prequels anyway.

Plus Ackbar still creates the B-Wing. It just predates the X-Wing now.

Not to mention both are still just prototypes. They could just go into mass production only in respone to later TIEs.

Uprising is okay. Really repetetive, but its an iPhone game so standards shpuld already be low. It has good visuals at any rate.

But yeah, one of the companions is a Zann Operative and the flavor text says he is working for you since he was stranded by the Imperial blockade while pursuing a Black Sun agent.

Anoat became canon again too, among other things.

>> No.43056200

>Ackbar still creates the B-Wing. It just predates the X-Wing now.
This triggers my autism in a terrible way. The B-wing is such an outlandish and specialised craft, while the X-wing is just a logical progression from the Z-95s and the ARC-170. The rebellion was much more in need of better space superiority fighters than attack crafts in their first 20 years.

>> No.43056206

>I heard Uprising wasn't really worth playing.
It really isn't; it's piss easy, no real depth to the combat, and it takes forever to progress through the story missions because they try to force you to be a certain level/have upgraded gear first. I'd recommend just flipping through videos on youtube to before and after story missions (when the story progresses).

I think that's what it is. It's some kind of transparent alloy made out of unobtanium or something. It's meant to explain why ships in Star Wars have all those big windows (something that is both unfeasible and extremely dangerous on a real space ship).

While some things in Star Wars definitely do require some kind of jargon or explanation to help give it flavor, I don't think the material starship windows are made of is one of them. Glass or transparisteel, I don't see the point of broaching that subject in a story to begin with unless you're going for some kind of Tom Clancy-style deconstruction of everything. Which doesn't really strike me as being very Star Wars.

We don't know that for sure. The X-wing's origins weren't mentioned in Star Wars movies either, I wouldn't be surprised if we see them in Rebels at some point.

We're getting an earlier variant of the AT-AT too.

Anyways, Season 2 finally starts back up tomorrow after the earlier season opening tease. Trailer looks like interesting times ahead.

>Dude, a Mon Cal creating anything but an outlandish craft should trigger you.
Yeah I know, that's not what I was complaining about. I just liked the idea of B's and A's introduced later in the war because they were more advanced and specialized fighters.
I like that they went for the McQuarrie concept art look for the A-wing. It just doesn't have the 360° rotating cannons yet.

Well, this B-wing is supposed to be some kind of prototype, so maybe it "Works" but there end up being some serious problems that need correcting, delaying its mass-production for a few years. Possibly minus the superlaser


And a turret on the back! Not that this is gonna help them against Captain Rex and company and his outdated AT-TE.

>> No.43056635


I mean, we know star wars has like, a vast galaxy and all that, but it's around four years between ANH and RotJ. And the ANH to ESB period seems to involve a lot of running and hiding to hole-up. Prototyping phases, testing and mass production should still take some time to get everything rolling out.

I find it odd we're going with A-wings as the distinctive Rebel fighter over X-wings, but it's not crazy that we're getting them. Hell, do you know how many different model numbers with very little actual difference there were for the X-wing in Legends?

>> No.43056641

>And a turret on the back! Not that this is gonna help them against Captain Rex and company and his outdated AT-TE.
The AT-TE actually had some advantages over the AT-AT, including not being vulnerable to cables, wider firing arc, and being usable in space. The AT-AT could wade through deeper water and had better armament and armor though.

Ackbar and most of the fleet weren't hiding out at Hoth though. So they had enough time to develop their starfighters elsewhere in the galaxy.

>> No.43056697

Also the AT-AT is a better tank buster as it can strike from above, a job logically limited to air support most of the time. Tanks are most heavily armored, in most cases, around the sides, but are weak underneath and above.

It can strike from above, but it's underbelly isn't as well armored as the rest of it either. To the standard, I'd shorten it to like 10 m legs, add a double aft laser turret, and a laser turret on either side. Yeah, it's got plenty of armor there, but turning to target anything there is a nightmare.

I agree more firing arcs would be useful, although I think the biggest problem with the AT-AT would be the legs. Not only are they too tall as you mentioned but the way they're also too straight and don't seem to have any flexibility. It makes it easy to trip them like at Hoth and perhaps more importantly it makes them useless on anything but flat terrain- which sort of defeats the point of a walker in the first place.

I'd give the AT-ATs at least some degree of three-dimensional flexibility at the joints -maybe angle them to begin with like the AT-TE - and redesign the 'feet' to better handle uneven terrain. You combine that with the extra guns you mentioned and those things would be fucking terrifying.

Six legs isn't too much of a benefit. Make them thicker and articulated better.
I was going to say most of those other things >>43056872 posted, but not in the same way, though I didn't think of the obvious of strengthening the belly armor. Making it shorter mitigates that some. A single heavy laser though? It has two as it is. Make it a double heavy laser turret. Wait. For all of the medium lasers, just put them at the corners. That way they can have larger fire arcs.

>> No.43057246

The comic really weighed most of the Chaos on mandos still loyal to him.

Not sure what happened to the Collective since Maul escaped death yet again, though.

According to Palps, Maul was basically a broken man and no longer a threat. Even if he wasn't, I doubt the collective would do what he wants after the thrashing they received due to his ill-conceived (as they saw it) plans.

The Hutts/Sun/Pikes probably went back to their usual routine of scheming, stealing, killing eachother, and just generally being criminal assholes.
