Did anybody else find Imperial Assauts "Jabbas Realm" to be not a good next choice for an expansion? I figured FFG would of went Endor or the Death Star, something relevant to the main plot of the original trilogy.

>> No.51338517

WTF are you talking about? Jabba's palace is the obvious place to set an expansion after Bespin. If anything, it's too predictable.

>Twin Shadows
The part of Tatooine with seedy cantinas and Tusken Raiders, like we see in the first act of A New Hope
>Return to Hoth
Hoth, duh, the first act of The Empire Strikes Back
>The Bespin Gambit
Cloud City, the third act of ESB
>Jabba's Realm
The part of Tatooine we see in the first act of Return of the Jedi

So what are we missing chronologically? On board the first Death Star, which is not a place to set even a mini-campaign; the Death Star trench run, which is for X-Wing, not Imperial Assault; and Dabogah, where exactly three characters appeared in the entire OT.

Endor will probably be the next large expansion (I don't think FFG would try to cram it into a small box, anyway). Expect Scout Troopers, Ewoks, a Rebel general version of Han Solo, and if we're lucky, Palpatine. The Jabba's Realm wave gave us a head start on Endor with pic related.

Well my party's bounty hunter droid just jihaded the hell out of an Inquisitor.

Against all odds the party had managed to beat her down, but she was fleeing, and thanks to Enhance jumps she was getting the fuck out of dodge faster than anyone could really keep up with, was sitting there all smug thinking I had a recurring villain on my hands.

Cue the bounty hunter droid deciding that escape isn't on menu, engaging his jetpack and tackling her out of the fucking air while detonating an armour piercing charge he had in his chest cavity. Bits of him rained down all over the battlefield, but the party's ass is now covered and they have a pretty cool story to tell, even if they lost a crewmate.

AFAIK, at least in nucanon (and my chosen canon, teehee) lasers are more or less identical to blasters, with one major difference.

A 'blaster' weapon converts a blaster gas into a plasma by processing it through an XCiter, which uses electricity stored in a power pack (or in the rare case of ship-mounted blasters, from the ship's reactor) to cause the state change.

A laser uses a high-powered laser to cause the state change, which is more expensive and harder to miniaturize, in exchange for better results in terms of plasma output, which leads to more damage and range.

A turbolaser is the same principal, except with an even more powerful laser. Even bigger, even more energy required, et cetera.

A superlaser... you get the idea.

Pro: The droid has the language library of a mid-range protocol droid, and can understand instructions given by almost any being, droid, or system.

Con: It doesn't have proper speakers, just a couple of those motherboard beepers set to different tones. And they're buried inside its head, so they're a bit tough to hear.

Pro: Its enormous comm library includes programming languages, and the droid can manipulate most systems that an R2 unit could. In some cases it even does a better job.

Con: The droid's computer probe is a proprietary model which the manufacturer thought would replace galactic standard comm ports. It did not. No-one has ever figured out how to replace the probe without bricking the droid, so it needs special adapters to jack into a computer. No company has made one in over twenty years.

This is pretty explicitly stated in Sabine's training montage in rebels.

What even is the purpose of the bond? The films show that lightsabers don't function any differently when they're in the hands of people other than their original owners. Han made the Tauntaun sleeping bag, Anakin's saber changes hands often, and Grievous keeps a collection of trophy sabers for his own personal use. Then in at least one canon comic, Han and Leia get their hands on more lightsabers courtesy of R2 and use them successfully. There are comments about how odd they feel when wielded, but that can just as easily be attributed to the lack of mass in the blade and other technobabble.

>> No.51351882

Well, honestly, if what Ahsoka said is true, there wouldn't be Lightsabers at all until someone discovered Kyber, and figured out that it could be used for making contained plasma blades, among other things.
That and I liked the many, many colors of sabers in legends.
While different colors could work with either continuity, I like to think the Kyber is the power source and something else is the focusing crystal.

>> No.51351892

In the episode they talk about how the blade feels lighter to her as she bonds with the crystal. I understand that to mean less unwieldy rather than actually weighing less.

If that's the case, then it doesn't really fall in line with the films. Anakin didn't seem to behave any differently with the spare lightsabers he and Obi-Wan used to fight Dooku on Geonosis. You'd think that with his inexperience at the time, there would have been a visible change in his movements, but no, it's just as spinny and fancy as the rest of the PT's saber fights.

Yavin was just one cell out of many. The galaxy is a big place and the Death Star can't be everywhere. Instead of trying for a second kill shot right away, maybe the Rebels attack the Death Star's logistical network. A massive, one-of-a-kind battle station requires large quantities of food, fuel, water, and spare parts, as well as a whole lot of freighters to carry those supplies. We also know that Tarkin's decision-making skills are compromised by hubris. So some cells bait Tarkin, lure the Death Star somewhere strategically insignificant, and keep forcing it on wild goose chases. This gives other cells the opportunity to hit the Death Star's supply network or operate under pre-Death Star conditions.

Alternatively, skip ahead to when Sheevy P finally kicks the bucket of natural causes (or "natural causes") resulting in full blown civil war, the DS gets destroyed by internal sabotage, the Imperial apparatus starts ripping itself apart and suddenly whatever is left of the Rebellion finds itself in the best possible position it could ask for.

Well, the rebellion could probably get a lot of support from small groups not worth blowing up a planet over.

The Mon Cal homeworld would also be fucked, though if word gets out quick enough, the Mon Cal could feasibly evacuate their homeworld while bleeding the Imperial vanguard elements, especially if the homeworld is defended as heavily as in Legends.

It's straight from Lucas himself. It started in the youngling episodes in TCW. Kyber Crystals are semi-living and can attune themselves to people. Usually to good force sensitives like the Jedi, who make weapons from them, but the crystals have meaning to other groups and individuals around the galaxy. The color of the blade is seemingly random.

Dark siders can't actually find their own, so they must corrupt and control a crystal against it's will. Which turns the blade red. (This might be because the Sith appropriated the Jedi's weapon, but that's just my speculation) Ahsoka's crystals happened to be stolen by an inquisitor, so she purified when taking them back. It turned them white.

The crystals come in large sizes as well, and the giant crystal Galen worked on had strange effects on him. It's also possible the Sith used these types of crystals to construct ancient super weapons.

This is the dumbest complaint I've heard and it seems like no one actually watched the movie at all.

In ANH, Luke, Han and Leia are extremely simplistic as well.

>> No.51359947

>In ANH, Luke, Han and Leia are extremely simplistic as well.
Luke goes from a dirt farmer with aspirations of being a fighter pilot to being said fighter pilot
Han goes from a smuggler who cares only about himself and paying off Jabba to coming to Luke's rescue.
Leia has little character development, but for much of ANH she is little more than a mcguffin

>> No.51360128

The same could be said about the R1 characters.
Baze goes from being faithless and bitter to rediscovering his faith. Bodhi goes from being a cowardly defector to confident leader. Cassian gets his head together after meeting Jyn. In the beginning of the film, he executes a contact for having a broken arm but stops Jyn from killing Krennic because he doesnt want her to be like him. Had the characters lived, I'm pretty sure people would be excited to see how they would develop further in the sequels like the other trilogies.

>> No.51360222
