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.

Tips:

• 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.

Even if he had, would Ditko have done anything? He was a pretty notable recluse. Still the guy was a comic book maestro, if Lee died before him, Ditko would probably get a huge amount of attention. Question is, would Ditko have accepted it?

I couldn't find one. But Momaw Nadon was a high priest and I found a picture of his action figure with a rather priestly-looking staff and belt buckle. I figured the belt buckle would make a pretty good symbol for Ithor or the Ithorian religion.

I don't like the idea of significant imbalances in the force after Return of the Jedi. I liked the Jedi Knight games because any dark siders were actually equal with light siders, so it was never out of balance. Disney's movies completely ignore everything that happened in Return of the Jedi, you could actually skip Return, going straight from Empire to The Farce Awakens, and it would make no difference since the Empire is back, the dark side is back, and nothing has changed since the original trilogy.

It is lazy. A creative person should say, 'okay, I can't do the Dark Lord Emperor thing because it was already done and RotJ established it can't be done as well.' But JJ didn't care and wanted a new hope clone with 100x BIGGER things, literally in the case of the sun destroying planet vs the death star. So Snoke is 100ft tall in the movie. It's a hologram but the meaning is plain: this emperor's even BIGGER.

Rian just ran with this and said, 'okay, now I'm SUBVERTING it. Snoke is just a goofball.' which, like everything else Rian did, just made it worse.

The dark side knowledge is necessary to prevent YV sucess (Kylo/Caedus), and for the Jedi legacy to move toward grey/balance; Abeloth/metaphysical aspect for an endgame subplot– speaking of which, I can't think of a lore-satisfactory martyring for Luke other than having left to deal with the Lovecraft Biggest Bad(s) like Abeloth, and/or throwing himself in the breech to prevent such an entity from manifesting ~goes into blue ghostmode voice-to-skull intelligence agency role after.

They half-baked what source material they did have with a 'safe' director from fucking Stark Trek and this shitshow's the predictable result.

So /sw/, I know that not everyone here (or anywhere) is fond of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and many recognize it as one of Bioware/EA's many examples of greedy corporate douchery and also the Revan character rape (among other things). But still, its the only major SW MMO out there and it has a shit ton of content, and I thought it would be nice if we had a thread specifically about SWTOR in hopes that maybe we could play together, form our own guild or just help each other out with stupid missions. The game is not as hard as it used to be sadly since they nerfed it by adding difficulty bullshit and even a single player can do a heroic mission by themselves as long as they have decent armor and a healer. But still, we could get together and kill world bosses and whatnot, or just harass other players and hope we don't get banned… If not, just call me a faggot/SWTOR shill and we'll just pretend this never happened.

You were probably on Star Forge then. I think that's the more "inclusive" one. Also depends on the time of day. I was on at about midnight on Dromund Kaas so that was probably why all the tards didn't have their wranglers. During the day on the Republic side though, I was called out for calling someone an autismo, the tamest of fucking insults. The faggot was whining about how autist became the new retard and I had to tell him that only low IQ faggots get called retards. When you act autistic and aren't obviously stupid, I'll call your autistic ass autistic.

>Same. It's fucking hilarious to see people sitting by the first mailbox using their sub rewards before walking off in kitted out gear and an OP companion.

I like to rp (only with myself rp guilds or people who rp in chat are autists and not the good kind) so I save all my sub gifts until I’m a decent level.

>By the way, what server do most of you play on? I'm on the supposedly "toxic" Satele.

I just logged on for the first time in well over a year and I guess I’m on the same server, for some reason there’s only two NA servers now, I think I used to be on harbinger though. I don’t remember a server called Satele Shan before so I guess all my chars got moved over and they deleted a bunch of servers because low pop?

>Maybe I'm not an over sensitive faggot who actually believes in "toxic gamers," but I don't notice jack shit in terms of terrible players. I mean, last night we were discussing the (((Muun))) question and which comp is the most fuckable.

I recall my old server being fairly chill. I only had one high Pub character but I remember pub side being much more sensitive while only the imperial fleet had people whining about anything offensive.

I’ll probably look to re-sub and start playing again within the next month. Though I might wait for semester break so I don’t fuck myself with finals coming up.


 No.24018

Yeah. Harbinger was merged with a bunch of dead RP servers. Apparently the inhabitants of the new Satele server bullied the fuck out of the RP autists and so the RPfags moved to the Star Forge.

That’s good I was sick of rpfags in the chat every time I was on the fleet, and you call them autists and suddenly dozens of butthurt whispers. I like to RP in almost every game I play, it helps for immersion and escapism but it’s strictly in my head, pretending you’re actually a sith and replying to everything in charter is multiple levels of retarded.

When I was in high school I used to work at a local paintball field and whenever we had large groups of airsofters come in they all pretended they were in the military and like they were real oper8ors. One faggy group in particular was run by some brit who claimed to have served in Afghanistan and took a .308 to the knee yet had literally no issues walking and sprinting. They made all the kids and other fags do a mock parade before each day they came out to play. That’s probably where my pure disdain for RPing fags came.

Yup

Specifically, we'll be looking at

Vitiate was powerful, i didn't denied that, what i said is that he was a minor lord in comparison to the reigning Dark Lords of his era. He had to perform a huge ritual to nom a bunch of Sith Lords to become immortal, just like lord Khan had to use an assembly to unleash the thought bomb. Meanwhile Palpatine snacked in an entire planet of billions by himself, o the point of fucking and tainting Byss even the planet was gone. He if wanted he could had sucked the planet at once. Palpatine was by that time almost at God Emperor of Mankind by shitting warp/force storms. Naga Shadow blowed up suns. All Vitiate managed to do was body surfing for millenia.

And as Kreia (i.e the authors) said about people in the Revan/Exile era, they were like children in comparison to the ancient masters.

Gonna move from land based military to the Republic and Mandalorian fleets.

This may sound similar to some of my earlier posts, but that's because I've changed things a bit/have more to add.

First up, Republic unit blocks referred to from here on as 'Elements.'

An element is composed of 13 ships, 4 Forays, 4 Suffuses, and 5 Hammerheads. The point of a block is to give the shitty but numerous (refer to my above rant analysis* of the Hammerhead) strength and security in numbers, security also comes in the form of the four Suffuses ahead of them.

The suffuses are there to act as a buffer between the enemy and the hammerheads, being powerful enough to hold their own with comparably sized ships and sturdy enough to soak hits from ones much larger, though it is slow in comparison to the engine-with-guns foray and hammerheads. Oh, and the forays are just there to flank incoming enemies and further fighter-screen alongside the hamheads.

>>23988

Fuck I'm dumb

I forgot to mention that elements have two formations, Line formation and Staggered formation.

The point of Line formation is to fit neatly in phalanxes (this post's primary topic) and staggered formations are just ideal battle positions when under heavy enemy fire as the Forays are small and quick enough to get the fuck out, the Suffuses CAN'T run if they need to so all they can do is spread out, and the Hammerheads are just larger, lopsided Forays.

Now onto phalanxes.

Where the point of an element is to empower the Republic's small and individually weak ships through numbers and formations, the phalanx's job is to use all these tiny needles to bleed the enemy dry from the relatively safe position of a wall of miniature starships.

A phalanx's heart is its center tier/line, (shown on the left) composed of five elements alongside an Inexpugnable-class tactical command ship. Basically a ye-olde Lucrehulk

The inexpugnable's job is to sit there and look pretty (it's failing horribly) while the tinier ships do all the work, shitting out twelve fucking squadrons to help its allies with their work.

The inexpugnable was a mistake, that's all I'm gonna say here.

There are five tiers in your average phalanx, two fodder ones, the center one, and then two more fodder ones.

This ends with you having 125 Hammerheads, 120 Suffuses, and 120 Forays all stacked on top of eachother like a giant wall all collectively pissing on the enemy with their guns at once, and to me that seems absolutely fucking insanely powerful, and that's not even factoring in how many starfighters an entire phalanx could deploy.

Attempting to engage the entire formation would be absolutely suicidal, there's too many targets who're just too small to focus on one at a time, nothing short of a colossal spearhead of either special weaponry (missiles and the like) or a dense mob of ships is getting through this.

For Mandalorian ships, I'll first give a brief summary of the ones I'm NOT adding and actually existed before my dumbass fleshed them out.

>kyramud battleship

The Kyramud, meaning 'killer' in Mando'a, is a 752 meter long warship that the Mandalorians took from the people of Basilisk (alongside a lot of other stuff) and mass produced the shit out of.

I'm just gonna be honest, the Kyramud's a pretty shitty design. Most of its weapons (25 turbolasers and 10 missile launchers) are forward facing and if not that their actual target picture's a fairly narrow cone, meaning that if a Kyramud isn't head-onning something it's thoroughly fucked.

However, if it IS going head-on with something it will tear it apart, facing the enemy with an arsenal of heavy hitting guns backed up by unnecessarily dense armor, its capable of going toe to toe with ships larger than it and reducing them to molten space dust in moments. If it's going head-on that is

Now a quick note about those fins, while no actual sources say this I'm going to assume that they aren't static and can be moved around sorta like a bigass buckler.

>Jehavey'ir assault ship JAY-HAV-EH-EAR

This mouthful's a 188 meter long/tall/fuck it mistake that's much better at dropping off troops and fucking off than fighting.

It's got a few turbolasers and ion cannons, (5 and 3 respectively) but where it really shines is its missile launchers.

It's got 6 heavy ordnance lobbers embedded in its stupid tail thing, allowing it to deliver a fairly substantial payload despite its lacking size.

Honestly, the Jehav's biggest advantage is that its slim profile allows a bunch of them to st next to eachother and just hurl missiles across the battlefield.

The problem is, I don't see a bunch of rabid semi-feral Mandalorian crusaders who're busy cheering on the captain as he tries to ram a hammerhead even considering for a moment slowing down and chilling out in a line for a few minutes before going back to ramming.

I know that I didn't come up with the Kandosii, I'm putting it here because I'm about to flesh the shit out of it. Definitely didn't forget about it because I'm a brainlet

The Kandosii's a dreadnought like I'm an author, clocking in at 1,360 meters its classification is really up for debate so I won't bother with it.

Normally, I really like Fractal's renders. He puts so much detail and love into every panel and rivet, but this one just doesn't sit right with me. It seems too small to be 1,360 meters long, I dunno, what do you guys think?

The Kandosii's packing mad heat, (even if Fractal forgot a few) with 30 double turbolasers and fucking TWELVE super-heavy missile launchers, but what if I told you that was fucking gay and that I had a better idea?

Here's my change for the Kandosii.

>6 double heavy turbolasers PER side where the four are currently

Having so many medium turbolasers would make sense on a murderwedge as dagger-shaped ships can more easily focus all batteries on a single target, while a broadside heavy craft like the Kandosii simply can't leverage nearly that much power due to its weapons being locked away in an un-ideal position.

Having these broadside guns being exceptionally powerful would excuse this otherwise glaring design flaw.

Now onto something I actually came up with

>Nynir strikeship

The Nynir is the Mandalorian's version of the Hammerhead, only better.

It's blockier and better armored, swaps out the fixed turbolasers for gimbal ones, the only thing its Republic counterpart has on it is speed, but you only need that if you're a faggoty aruetti.

>Shukur

The Shukur, meaning 'to Break,' isn't a Mandalorian design at all, its origins actually stem back to Vitiate's personal cult/mini-kingdom.

Vitiate gave it to Mandalore as a gift in order to help coerce him into going to war against the Republic, somethinPost 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?

This thread is discussing the concept and approach that should be taken to continue, refine, and add to the EU in a notable, organized fashion. Not sure how we would determine what is considered canon, but I'm sure we could devise a way. There were a few ideas thrown about, but nothing concrete as of yet. If you have any ideas for stories, feel free to share.

i guess generally any fanfic site would do, so long as it allows for scifi content. might also consider linking on some of the normalfag websites to garner attention, just to make the lucasfilm and disney faggots ree for lulz.

I like the old fashioned, "If it's good and it doesn't interfere with other good stories, it's canon. And if it's shit, or if it interferes with better stories (even if on its own it's okay) then it isn't canon. With the six Lucas films trumping everything since they are the core of the universe.

Out curiosity, what's your guys' stance on my TOR Separatist Canon thread? I've been trying to make it fit with Legends as much as possible as I'm currently only in the KOTOR-era, (not sure if I'll ever leave it to be honest) and I'm trying less to make my own canon and more to flesh out the bare-bones lore that is the Mando Wars leading into KOTOR proper.


 No.23998

A good policy to have. I think having most of the works be digital will also work to assist good stories not getting thrown out over minor continuity errors. Edits can be made as needed, as long as they're not plot dependent on said errors. Overall, just having an active group of dedicated people discussing the lore assists in providing better quality and consistency of writing.

>>23994

I read through a bit of it. I think it's good idea to focus more on refining the established lore before moving onto creating more to fit into the universe. The ideas being discussed there to fill in some of the gaps seem solid. I need to reacquaint myself with the TOR lore again before I can start discussing it at length. My reason for attempting to expand the lore forward is to both give myself a reasonable era where I can tell a good story and give a lot of free space to other writers to tell better stories and explore subjects they can do justice to. Expanding forward also doesn't interfere with the EU as it was left, so it could be easily discarded or ignored by those who don't feel too much should be added. I am personally opposed to too much tampering with established lore, however, so the ideas in the TOR thread do catch my interest. It seems everything proposed there goes to the service the lore, rather than change or add pointlessly.

He made no references to particulars, but do understand that fiction echoes reality. If they look a certain way, there's a reason for it and being that we live in reality and not in fiction, we will react to it in a similarly echoing way.

Harmy's versions are not really that. They're just the Blu-Rays reedited to resemble the 97 Special Edition, they don't really look "old and gritty" but just compressed and blurry.

I see it literally everywhere on the internet, and even occasionally on this very board. You even will have EU fans who claim that the Prequels weren't good, they just spawned a lot of good stuff. This narrative seems incredibly forced.

What are all the complaints people have about them?

>hurrr, the acting is bad

It isn't, though, it's intentionally Shakespearean and given an operatic tone to make the movies timeless.

>DUDE CGI LMAO

The Prequels have countless sets and models in them, it's a testament to how good the CGI is that no one realizes that.

>I don't like Anakin!

Really weird complaint, Anakin is a tragic hero and is case study in what can turn a good man bad. From his horrible mentors in the Jedi after Qui Gon died, to his manipulative new father figure in Palpatine, it all makes sense. You simply disliking Anakin doesn't make him a bad character.

>le jar jar

Nothing Jar Jar does is anywhere near as cringe worthy as the endless pop culture references and quips in modern day films.

So what are the other complaints? Really, because everytime I go back and rewatch the Prequels, I like them more.

That makes sense now. On the same note, would the Revanites be a large religious organization? It seemed to spread in popularity among both the Imperial and Republic military ranks.


 No.23972

>>23971

It was, and the Sith Empire was very against it due to its belief in balance and honoring Revan, with many of the cultural elite on Dromund Kaas and even several sith joining up with it. They would've had a long enduring presence if not for SWTOR bringing back Revan to take control of the order only to be defeated and thus cause the order's disbandment.

We're getting into circular argument territory here. I made the same point in >>2375, the fact that Han doesn't believe in the Force/Jedi makes the ~19 year gap between RotS and ANH difficult to reconcile, as he grew up on a major Core world where almost everyone should have at least heard of Jedi.

This is by far my favorite video game. I love the secondary bounties feature in gameplay and the story is fantastic. I was sad when the female toydarian got killed by Montross.

Does anyone have a link to all the concept art you can unlock in the game?

Most likely the fact that it's just a job for them. Sure, the writers no doubt have their own opinions on things, but they also don't see the point in severing their connections with the mouse, especially if they already have their foot in the door from writing old pre-disney EU stuff. No point turning down a future mouse gig. The more offers you get, the better.

Mark getting roped in was sad as fuck. He said “I’m only in if Harrison and Carrie are in” knowing in his heart Ford would never come back. But Carrie wanted one last ride and Ford either caved to her or the Mouse money. Hamill followed suit, thinking George would be involved. Then they killed Han and Fisher died and left Hamill alone. Dude kind of got the rug pulled out from him and got stuck in this shitshow alone

no, none of the dark horse writers are currently writing marvel sw comics. it's all a bunch of nobodies. also, you won't hear them bashing the mouse since comic writers tend to slip between companies, unless you're chris claremont.
