Hello all. You might not remember what the Holonet Wiki is, but I was one of the anons involved with the new SW wiki our board was working on a while back. For those of you who need a quick summary, a while back our wiki hit a rather major snag. I found a way to import a large amount of "Legends" wookieepedia content over to our wiki and thus save ourselves from a lot of work, the problem is that the import process could only be done by the owners of our wiki's domain. So I left for quite a spell in hopes of contacting Shoutwiki's staff (our domain owners) and finding some way to import the content. That feels like ages ago now…

So the end result is, I have some bad news gents. I've been trying to contact the staff of Shoutwiki and to find some way to get around the restrictions but have had no luck. Either Shoutwiki doesn't give a shit or its a dying domain. However, during my period of absence as I did my best to collect content from all Legends articles for importing (as well as any pre-2011 content) I've found several alternative wikis. I've long since given up hope on trying to make any progress with Shoutwiki, so to finally get this over with, I was hoping we could continue discussion on all wiki progress here and vote on what to do and which domain to move to.

So it looks like our issue was that if you update too big a file directly to Phabricator, the server will spit it out because they only have so much hosting space for Phabricator. I'll be uploading our xml via Mega and sending a link.

Monday 9pm GMT there will be a Movie Battles II server up for the /SW/ community. Chat, fight, capture objectives and duel on the "Best Star Wars game of all time!".

Movie Battles 2 is a free mod of the game; "Jedi knight: Jedi Academy". It can be downloaded at www.moviebattles.org, it requires a copy of Jedi Academy (JA) to play. You can use the steam version or GOG version of JA. It runs around £7 on steam, but if you can't afford that or simply don't want to give Disney your money the pirated GOG version works just as well (or so I'm told).

Monday 9pm MovieBattles II; /SW/'s server. See you there.

Password will be revealed in this thread 1 hour before startup.

The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction to the board, but can also be used for suggestions, board news or anything you might like to share.


• Here are some essentials to getting started on the board and integrating into the community.

1: Check out the board's CyTube channel for live chats and watching SW videos (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars

2: We have our own Star Wars encyclopedia covering all pre-Disney media, the SW Holonet. Feel free to check it out and contribute: http://swholonet.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page

3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share what we know.

4: Learn some freaking Huttese, you scocha kungs.

5: Fair warning. Diehard Disneyfags and Namefags can and will be mocked by the locals.

6: Always check the catalog.

7: Credits are accepted, but truguts are preferred.

The Rules:

• The rules here are simple, we live by and follow the rules and laws of Hutt Space. Which means we barely follow any real rules here. Just don't post CP and keep shit on topic as I don't like banning or deleting shit, unless its necessary, like spam, cp, brownpill shit and raids. Off-topic shit will not be deleted either, but it will be anchored (unless its scifi-related and in relation to us), so just make a meta general for that kind of shit.

Someone talk me through this. Is this a direct adaptation of the first Vong story? Would you recommend it over reading the actual books?



I'd like to help but I really can't stand the Vong (although I like their lore) and I'm someone who loves everything else in Star Wars to death except Filoni's decisions. But from what little I know, Star Wars: Invasion does indeed cover most of the Vong stuff but does things a bit differently from the novels. Invasion doesn't cover the New Jedi Order novels, so whether its a continuity retcon or error or simply a time and budget thing is unknown to me.

There's only one official Star Wars canon I respect, and that's the original pre-disney expanded universe. The new one doesn't really have anything I care about- it's full of the shit disney films and cuck wendig books with almost nothing else of note.


Yes, that and Droids.

A good Gundam side story is the kind of thing they should have been aiming for with Rogue One. War in the Pocket is a story about a bunch of grunt pilots, and a kid caught in the middle. The Zeon super weapon doesn't take center stage. Fan favourite characters don't sweep in constantly to steal the scene. It has room to breath and tell it's own story about something small that happens in it's own isolated corner of that universe.



This. Maybe something like the Rookies episode of Clone Wars or some of the X-Wing stories. A group of Rebels out doing their own story that feels unique to them and works by itself. Gundam has so many interesting concepts that modern space adventure writers could learn from.



Although Gundam does kind of get to cheat, since the mech designs are the most iconic thing, and as long as a Zaku shows up, that part of the fanbase is satiated.

Still though, you could treat X-Wings the same way.



>Although Gundam does kind of get to cheat, since the mech designs are the most iconic thing, and as long as a Zaku shows up, that part of the fanbase is satiated.


>Still though, you could treat X-Wings the same way.

Also true. But despite it, they still handle stories and characters far better than most modern writers have, especially Disney. Even my least favorite Gundam animoos always manage to impress me in one way or another.



I've only really been exploring the franchise recently, but I've greatly enjoyed almost all of what I've seen, and been pretty impressed by it's scope, for something that seems like just a cheesy robot show on the surface.

It would actually make a great model of where to go with Star Wars post OT, instead of rehashing big empire vs little rebels forever. You can totally do epic space opera where both sides are evenly matched, or where the good guys even have a bit of an upper hand. The idea of the Titans being people who would have been considered heroes in the original series, who then become tyrants out of fears of their enemies rising up again is really interesting too.

Still waiting for you to explain how Harlan Elision is a good writer. What's your favorite work by him? One of his short stories? One of his novels (lol), maybe Mephisto in Onyx about a well-educated black man who's also a psychic, who fucks white women, and delves into an ebil white racist serial killer's mind? Or maybe A Boy and his Dog which is only known because of the superior film, the same way The SHining is only known because Kubrick decided to take that piece of shit and make it into something decent. Or maybe you're a fan of his Star Trek episode about the ebil Natzees?

All right you slimos, let's do this. There are guides floating around for TCW and star wars vidya, but nothing concrete about the novels or other EU material besides GIB DARTH PLAGUEIS. Let's fix that, shall we? Pics related are a blank template to fill out, and my take on it, respectively. I'm still a bit of a newfag to the EU so my contribution is limited.

In addition to what I've started up here such a guide could probably benefit from a bit of color-coding, with colors denoting:

>must read, buy it or you're a fag

>okay but only good if you like the characters/other books in the series

>not great but honorable mention (could be an asterisk instead of a color-change)

>very…different and highly skubtastic Yuuzhan Vong I'm looking at you.

If you have something to contribute or disagree with one of the existing judgments feel free to bring it up, and post the edited template.

exactly, it's from 2007 and not really properly organized

the Del Rey novel timeline isn't perfectly chronological either and is missing stuff. Most of these official lists aren't that great, you kinda have to rely on 3rd party stuff like starwarstimeline.net and wookieepedia



It had some lasting impact on Luke, which came up in I, Jedi. Because of his experience serving the reborn Emperor, for a while Luke became convinced that everyone had to have some kind of close brush with the dark side before their training was truly complete, and that flawed approach crept into his teaching.

Of course, just to play Alderaan's Advocate, you could argue that his confrontation with Vader and the Emperor over Endor would also lead to this mindset, but that wasn't nearly as dramatic an exposure to the dark side as his service to Palpatine reborn.



>as his service to Palpatine reborn.

The problem I have with this is that, whilst I loved the mysticism of Byss and the further extrapolation of the dark side, the plot itself was far too by the numbers. We never really get a sense of Luke's fall or inner conflict - one panel he's nasty, the next he's good again. It came across as amateur; a real missed opportunity. RoTJ did a much better job and even that was inadequate in a lot of ways. Like I say, it's a real shame because Dark Empire was a perfect medium through which to explore the corrosive and seductive nature of the Dark Side in real depth.

Instead, we got a ham-fisted rehash.



I don't think the setting being so far from the core with a tight enough local authority that the Empire is not immediately relevant warrants taking the book (There's a collected version and it's not all that big) and being a slightly different genre takes it down to purple


How is Galaxy of Fear for an adult reader anyways?



You're right that it's not a very good story, but the fact remains that multiple books reference its events, which makes it significant.

You know, I think it might actually be a skill to be able to make dogfights in space boring. Seriously though, what's the point of making an animated show if it's going to be less exciting than the live action stuff? Isn't the whole point of animation that one has total freedom to portray whatever they want, without having to worry about sets and props and expensive special effects?

That being said, it's time to take a walk through Disney's latest Star Wars offering and see what it's got going on.

>>reusing the same sentry sound effect from Dark Forces II

I'm amazed how much the First Order has in resources to just build and blow up stuff, especially since it seems nobody in actual power cares about them operating at all in the Galaxy.




the idea that stormtroopers are inaccurate is a running pop culture joke and meme. naturally, the people working on Disney Wars base their understanding of Star Wars on pop culture references, thus inaccurate stormtroopers.

if they actually understood the material, they'd know that the meme is contradicted in ANH, when Obi-Wan points out that the blaster marks on the sandcrawler are too accurate for sandpeople.



The empire didnt want to waste the money on training their new troopers because itd increase the chances of a re bellion anyway.



typical nonsensical post from Alderaan.



>the people working on Disney Wars base their understanding of Star Wars on pop culture references

This is primarily why they suck so bad. TFA was essentially ANH with SW pop-culture. Its superficial and aimless.
