Actually on the side Sheev didn't actually care about the Human supremacist ideology versus aliens, he only saw it useful in order to have the Empire. It was more of a sentiment used for the Empire to inspire Human Revolutions against the Xenos on alien worlds and thus bring them under his control.



well, assuming the whole "sheev was trying to save the galaxy from the vong" thing was true, it would make sense to raise a xenophobic attitude, as it would improve morale for fighting an invading alien force.



Damn strong nostalgia.

I remember going to Walmart every week with my mom as a kid and checking out the figures. it took forever for them to get Darth Maul in stock. He was constantly sold out, I remember raging every time haha.



- The Emperor was literally Hitler unifying the galaxy under a strong authoritarian regime taking the Republic away from the Globalists and giving direct control of the systems to regional governors instead.

-Vader represents the Schutzstaffel, the class of anticuck warrior monks loyal to the ideology/Hitler above all else.

- JEdi = JEws. Vader purging the Jedi Temple = the Holocaust

-Republic = Multicultural decaying shitshow. Empire = Pro Human(Pro White).

-The guy who wrote the Sith Code admits he based it on Mein Kampf and it also strongly resembles Nietzsche philosophy.

-They were only ever "evil" to rebel fags who were in open revolt against them, not evil for the sake of it. The Jedi attempted to genocide them years ago so they could rule over the multicult paradise unopposed. Alderan = traitor Commies. Fucking pussies got what they deserved.



there was an old article on the relation between star wars and ww2, and pretty much everything you wrote is what they wrote.

Can we take a minute or two just to realize and gloat about how actually good this was? I fucking hated the absolute shit out of The Trash Awakens, and fully expected this to be just as shitty, but despite a few flaws, I fucking loved it.

Also, have a webm of the best scene in the film.

gotta admit, it felt more like a star wars film than "we wanted to recapture the feeling" the force awakens



It's good to see nu-Star Wars fans still using "virgin" as an insult. It validates everything the original fans have been saying.



Good to see brain dead monkeys who will eat shit as long as it has a pretty logo on it. Only thing worse than a Nu Star Wars fag is a fag who takes it with indifference.


And yet… look at how they downplayed TLJ, compared to TFA, in the aftermath of this film. A coworker reckons they might put more oomph into the sidefilms because of this. This would require ousting that harpy, however.

>“Sidious watched the last of the brush fires burn out, then said, “Will I eventually be physically transformed?”

>“Into some aged, pale-skinned, raspy-voiced, yellow-eyed monster, you mean. Such as the one you see before you.” Plagueis gestured to himself, then lowered himself to the ground. “Surely you are acquainted with the lore: King Ommin of Onderon, Darths Sion and Nihilus. But whether it will happen to you, I can’t say. Know this, though, Sidious, that the power of the dark side does not debilitate the practitioner as much as it debilitates those who lack it.” He grinned with evil purpose. “The power of the dark side is an illness no true Sith would wish to be cured of.”

From Matthew Stover's adaptation of Revenge of the Sith:

In the newly renamed Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center on Coruscant, a hypersophisticated prototype Ubrikkian DD-13 surgical droid moved away from the project that it and an enhanced FX-6 medical droid had spent many days rebuilding.

It beckoned to a dark-robed shadow that stood at the edge of the pool of high-intensity light. "My lord, the construction is finished. He lives."

"Good. Good."

The shadow flowed into the pool of light as though the overhead illuminators had malfunctioned.

Droids stepped back as it came to the rim of the surgical table.

On the table was strapped the very first patient of the EmPalSuRecon Center.

To some eyes, it might have been a pieced-together hybrid of droid and human, encased in a life-support shell of gleaming black, managed by a thoracic processor that winked pale color against the shadow's cloak. To some eyes, its jointed limbs might have looked ungainly, clumsy, even monstrous; the featureless curves of black that served it for eyes might have appeared inhuman, and the underthrust grillwork of its vocabulator might have suggested the jaws of a saurian predator built of polished blast armor, but to the shadow—

It was glorious.

A magnificent jewel box, created both to protect and to exhibit the greatest treasure of the Sith.




The table slowly rotated to vertical, and the shadow leaned close.

"Lord Vader? Lord Vader, can you hear me?"



This is how it feels to be Anakin Skywalker, forever:

The first dawn of light in your universe brings pain.

The light burns you. It will always burn you. Part of you will always lie upon black glass sand beside a lake of fire while flames chew upon your flesh.

You can hear yourself breathing. It comes hard, and harsh, and it scrapes nerves already raw, but you cannot stop it. You can never stop it. You cannot even slow it down.

You don't even have lungs anymore.

Mechanisms hardwired into your chest breathe for you. They will pump oxygen into your bloodstream forever.

Lord Vader? Lord Vader, can you hear me?

And you can't, not in the way you once did. Sensors in the shell that prisons your head trickle meaning directly into your brain.

You open your scorched-pale eyes; optical sensors integrate light and shadow into a hideous simulacrum of the world around you.

Or perhaps the simulacrum is perfect, and it is the world that is hideous.

Padme? Are you here? Are you all right? you try to say, but another voice speaks for you, out from the vocabulator that serves you for burned-away lips and tongue and throat.

"Padme? Are you here? Are you all right?"

I'm very sorry, Lord Vader. I'm afraid she died. It seems in your anger, you killed her.

This burns hotter than the lava had.

"No . . . no, it is not possible!

You loved her. You will always love her. You could never will her death.


Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



You remember the dragon that you brought Vader forth from your heart to slay. You remember the cold venom in Vader's blood. You remember the furnace of Vader's fury, and the black hatred of seizing her throat to silence her lying mouth—

And there is one blazing moment in which you finally understand that there was no dragon. That there was no Vader. That there was only you. Only Anakin Skywalker.

That it was all you. Is you.

Only you.

You did it.

You killed her.

You killed her because, finally, when you could have saved her, when you could have gone away with her, when you could have been thinking about her, you were thinking about yourself. . .

It is in this blazing moment that you finally understand the trap of the dark side, the final cruelty of the Sith—

Because now your self is all you will ever have.

And you rage and scream and reach through the Force to crush the shadow who has destroyed you, but you are so far less now than what you were, you are more than half machine, you are like a painter gone blind, a composer gone deaf, you can remember where the power was but the power you can touch is only a memory, and so with all your world-destroying fury it is only droids around you that implode, and equipment, and the table on which you were strapped shatters, and in the end, you cannot touch the shadow.

In the end, you do not even want to.

In the end, the shadow is all you have left.

Because the shadow understands you, the shadow forgives you, the shadow gathers you unto itself—

And within your furnace heart, you burn in your own Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

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?

>Revan is now a humorless scaled up Bond villain obsessed with vengeance and betrayal

Really now? I mean, I got from this vid here that he turns into a massive ham when speechifying, but when talking too? Someone didn't get that if you want to make Revan back into a villain, he'd be much more intimidating if you kept his wicked sense of humor and contrasted that with what he's trying to do. Of course, attempting to wipe the entire Sith Empire from the Galaxy with a genocidal swarm of droids is so impractical and un-Revan that it's almost funny. It'd be much better if he just dropped onto Dromund Kaas one day with a party of misfits, then started cheerily murderhoboing and looting his way toward the Capital before sewer-sneaking right into the Citadel while you're off dealing with the army of freed slaves and scum he's gathered. Bonus if every single named character on his side is a bundle of talents and personality issues (good old HK having accompanied his master on the sneak).


You would think. There were thousands of Jedi about by the time of Lord Kaan, and still plenty of them about by Episode I. TOR also shows hundreds if not thousands active during the Cold War. A little under three hundred years is not enough for under ten individuals to bring it all back without help. Thus, the True Covenant. Perhaps in combination with the Rogue Moon Project, they ensure that a fair number of Jedi survive the Hunt, but in such a way that they themselves remain secret.

Honestly, I like the initial setup of TOR, being a fragile and unfaithful peace between Republic and Empire after a savage war bleeds both badly. The Sacking of Coruscant especially makes me grin every time I see it. I don't even really mind Vitiate, so long as he remains inferior to Palpatine in some respects. But it's the details from there that make a mess. Personally, I wouldn't mind if it turned out the two polities eventually merged together, hence the markings and ship designs of the Late Republic/Galactic Empire.





Here's a couple of weird ones.



Aha. Perhaps while Vitiate has a long reach and hideous potential power, Sidious can manipulate fate itself, and is far better at subterfuge.

File: e265a1191460f43⋯.jpg (96.55 KB, 505x550, 101:110, latest.jpg)


The Draethos look pretty cool other than the overbite. I now know what species Odan Ur is after seeing him solely from a Star Wars Visual Guide. The whole Egyptian theme of that era was always interesting.

The Celegians are pretty alien, but you're kind of limited by them not being humanoid and the fact they breath poison gas.



The expansion stories were fine, Revan fanboi entitlement aside, up until the Knights of the Fallen Empire/Eternal Throne sagas. They were launched after the Disney buyout and it's highly apparent that the writers at BioWare Austin decided that if Disney wasn't going to consider their game canon that they could feel free to write whatever the fuck they want and to hell with whether or not it jived with anything further in the future of the Legends continuity. That or they took the concept for a Space Opera game that never made it far in production and painted it with Star Wars like how Dinosaur Planet became Starfox Adventures.

I suppose on the whole it's not the craziest type of liberty taken with the lore in EU history, but it still feels like it creates its own timeline.

Keep all or at least most of the post-ROTJ EU, the old Han Solo and Lando novels from the 80's. A lot of old galactic civil war stuff is good too sans the most autistic Marvel comic stuff from the 80's. There's more I would keep but those are the basics.

>While we know he's shot at least half of the movie and taken charge of pretty extensive reshoots, it's never been revealed quite how much work he's done on the movie. Well, in the video below, it's said that Howard has reshot "nearly all" of the spinoff which has led to the budget almost doubling. That means we can probably forget about seeing any of Lord and Miller's work in the final cut next year.

Unfortunately, you'll have to rely on mods for other games to get that.

But they're both terrible stories that grant next to no autonomy on classes that should very much be outwith the factional power structures.

I don't really know who either are and so both are probably banal and vaporware with nothing useful to recalled from either.


You joke, but Disney is now controls the SWMCU, they will do a crossover just as soon as they've milked both dry and fans lose interest in the endless sequels to both, then the standing order to produce a crossover will be put into play.

Was it intentional?



Trying to warn us.



She just looks happy to have so much attention. She'll probably never land a big acting role after this stint with Star Wars and she won't be becoming an iconic "Luke" because her character has no story.

Slug fucking:


They're hermaphrodites IRL, and fight over who gets to be the male. Then I think they sprout tiny dicks all over their bodies. If this is how Hutts work, then they could probably fuck several slave-girls at once. Since slugs fight it out, dominance would probably be important for them to get off as well.

Actually, slugs only have the one dick, which they might end up chewing off if it gets stuck…

Still, there are plenty of other options available to them for pleasuring a Slave Girl.

Don't forget that Star Wars is now a Disney product and like any other Disney IP, the bad guys aren't allowed to have a lot of character development because they fear that people might enjoy them more than the perfect heroes designed by commitee.
