The board for discussing all things Star Wars! This thread serves as a simple introduction. 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 streams and live chats (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars 2: We are currently working on starting our own alternative to Wookieepedia. Once its up, a link to it will be posted here. 3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share. 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 unless its illegal or stupid. Just don't post CP, don't samefag, don't spam, don't do anything that will attract glowniggers, 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. May the Force be with you, troopers.

What was Nu-Maul's plan?
I was about to make a top surgery joke, but there's no way yidsney will ever let a pedophiletranny be a villain.
To become a third power in the Clone War to his own ends and kill Sidious.
Be a kingpin?
something..something... revenge

A thread for the TRUE star of Star Wars, Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.
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.
>>6213 Here is the full excerpt 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 only 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.
*ends the clone war* heh, nothing personel obi

Before the grand Sith-storm: Jedi order sweeps galaxy for Force-sensitives, who mostly end up not reproducing. It drives the whole “light side (except-there’s-only-Force) / Dark Side” tug-o-war. The nu-Sith edgelords actually worth a damn tend to be their students turned to “heresy”. The last (but not least: remember those “voices screaming in unison”? It reflects in the Force!) problem: the greatest organization of Force users is a bunch of arrogant, self-righteous mind controlling assassins… which probably affected the common attitudes toward them and Force users in general. The second greatest group of visible Force users are mostly ranting bloodthirsty lunatics. The likes of Revan don’t pop up in every other generation, after all. After Anakin’s misadventures: The Jedi order is destroyed. The surviving Jedi are those who managed to blend in, they remember and can teach techniques, but cannot possibly see the traditional Jedi hubris as desirable or even sane. Most “Sith” emo-butchers are destroyed as well. The most famous and respected Force user (and also Anakin’s descendant) now (after facing both “certain point of view” and Palpatine) without a good reason won’t trust followers of either tradition any farther than he can throw one. So… is there a reason to think Anakin did not fulfill his supposed destiny of “restoring balance of the Force” mostly right (if not perfectly)?

Imperial /k/ommando Thread: No Lightsabers Allowed Edition Stormtrooper 01/01/2020 (Wed) 17:53:32 No.1504 [Reply] [Last]
Time to talk about blasters, slugthrowers, and other non-lightsaber weapons and designs. Which is the most practical, powerful or aesthetically pleasing? What would you take with you when the Day of the Rebellion comes and SHTF? Superweapons are also allowed but only the weapon, all fleet discussion goes in the ship thread.

>>5106 There's an in-universe explanation for why the Death Star exploded into fireworks, rather than fracturing into large burning chunks (aside from giving the film an orgasmic climax). It's established that the Death Star can destroy entire planets, and it gets destroyed when it fires full-blast with a damaged reactor core (because of the proton torpedo). This would turn the DS's destructive power against itself, which explains its total incineration.
>>5099 IIRC the shots that caused it to explode hit right on the seam between the neck and the body. I always assumed that was a weak point that would otherwise be very hard to hit.

The entertainment droid's holoprojector started up, bathing the previously dark room in the blue light one normally associates with a cheap holoprojector. The three dimensional image it created showed a Zabrak male with his dark hair in a ponytail sitting at a table in front of a strange looking and time worn blaster rifle. The red geometric lines tattooed on the presenter's face identified him as a trained engineer, while the ones made up of black swirls marked him a historian. The holo was then joined by an audio recording of the cheerful man's lecture >Hi guys. Thanks for watching another holo from Forgotten Blasters. I'm Ilit Mak-Cuth and I'm here today at the Hydians Auction House on Chandrila taking a look at some of the blasters they are going to be selling in their upcoming auction. What we have here is a standard Republic pattern PulseWave blaster. While at first you might be thinking "They made literally trillions of these things, how is that a forgotten blaster?", but it's actually very rare to find one in such good condition these days, thousands of years later, so I thought this would be a good example to make a holo on it and show you guys. The camera focused in on the ancient blaster, hiding the Zabrak and the table from view. Now suspended on air, the floating, glowing, weapon slowly rotated around in the dark room, inviting the viewer to soak in every detail of the valuable antique. While out of view, the Zabrak's monologue continued to explain the history of Pulse-Wave blasters >Pulse-Wave blasters are largely associated with the Mandalorian Wars and the "Old Sith Wars", the series conflicts between the Old Republic and various Sith Empires roughly 4000 years ago. A lot of people hear "The Old Sith Wars" and immediately think of soldiers with energy shields hopped up on stimulants running at each other with vibroblades trying to cut the other's face off. While yes, that is largely true, there was actually also a fantastic amount of experimentation going on with blasters during this time period. You had electric blasters, sonic blasters, early disruptors, plasma projectors, and even a few incendiary blasters, but by far the most common ranged weapon was something like this. In emphasis, the Zabrak's disembodied hand appeared to point at the relic before once again disappearing from view >"Pulse-Wave" technology is the ancestor of the current blaster. Instead of the compressed particle bolts we know today, a pulse-wave blaster fires energy in a way that creates spacial distortions that can separate molecules. This is roughly as powerful as a modern blaster but only within about 30 to 35 meters. After that the effectiveness quickly dissipates as the distance increases and past about 225 meters it can't even make holes in durasheet. >A lot of people ask that at that point "Why not just use a slugthrower? They're lethal out to 500 meters or more." and that's because two major advantages to a pulse-wave system. The first is the energy shields mentioned earlier. The omni-present Old Republic era energy shields could cleanly stop any slug coming at them without difficulty, but a pulse-wave would batter them and eventually get through after many repeat hits so a squad can concentrate firepower and still has a good chance of taking down a shielded target. The second is, as we often see, one of logistics. You have to actually transport the slugs to the battlefield to supply the men and droids using those slugthrowers. You'd see less than 100 shots per kilogram, and once you were done with the cartridge packs holding that ammo they were useless without a whole industrial setup and mining operation to fuel it. By contrast, even early blasters like this you get about a thousand shots per kilogram of power packs, and when you're done you only need energy and a small amount of Tibana to refill them. That kind of thing may not seem like a lot when you're out hunting on your own, but it maters a lot when you're sending millions of troops to the other side of the Galaxy and they have to bring all the gear they'll need for up to a year with them. That's not to say you didn't see slugthrowers during these conflicts, but the units using them were definitely specialists. The hologram returned to depicting Mak-Cuth and his table and he started to close out his lecture. >The story of pulse-wave blasters mostly ends with the invention of and proliferation of the modern blaster rifle just after the Old Sith Wars. They're longer range and better in nearly every way compared to the pulse-wave system. Nobody made new ones after that except for a brief period during the post-Russan Dark Ages when some smaller manufacturers in isolated areas reverted to the technology after they were cut off from regular imports of materials and tooling needed to make proper blasters. Even then they were definitely a second-line weapon or civilian hold out blasters where the range didn't really mater since the user wasn't likely to be shooting at much past 30 yards anyways. >Thanks for watching everybody. If you want to own this exquisite example of a Pulse-Wave Rifle, this is an auction house and it plus are few other examples are going to be up for sale in the upcoming auction. To place a bid on this example, you can send a holonet or subspace transmission to HAH at Cha. Full details in the attached datalog. If you want to see more details on how they work you can play the second part of this holo, where I take it apart and show you a full holo-scan of the internals and tell you how they all work. If you want to hear about the Pulse-Wave's even older predecessor, I also have a set of holos on the Core World Arms BR1-Z, which is just a really weird and fascinating design. The Zabrak disappeared and the the closing credits played, thanking camera droid M1-14, the Hydians Auction House, and Mak-Cuth's many patrons that make the travel and research for the show possible, but the silence is interrupted by the return of the presenter's voice, clearly recorded on a different audio setup >I realize I should add a quick word of caution while I'm editing this, and that's that before you get both your hearts set on owning one of these you should check your planet's laws. A lot of anti-disruptor laws are very poorly written and define "DIsruptor" so overly broadly they include Pulse-Waves. Nothing I can do about that.
>>5116 >designed to deal with blaster bolts Common pistols/carbines are one thing, but… We have seen a single hit from high-powered blasters (like Han’s “Imma outlaw on the run, no time to shoot you twice” piece or Leia’s holdout) even to chest plate result in a mission kill (though not confirmed fatality). > and kinetic stuff Shrapnel from blasters hitting anything solid seems the most common type of “deadly projectiles” in SW, so yes. Slugthrower projectiles presumably are comparable, though not omnipresent. Add to that NBC and electronics. But all this adds weight. Which is why… >perforated by arrows launched by teddy bears Again, vulnerable spots. These suits don’t include overlapping solid protection on all sides. Wasn’t one stormtrooper dropped by blaster shrapnel to the rear of neck joint (when Leia hit a wall behind him)? So the plate (white parts) may well resist anything short of high-powered blasters or sledgehammer grade impacts to the head. The joints (black parts) are much weaker.

Might as well have a thread about news and stuff. Fiona Shaw Describes New Star Wars Series ‘Andor’ As “Great, Scurrilous Take On The Trumpian World,” Says Showrunner Created “A Whole New Morality” https://archive.is/0eD2H >“Our world is exploding in different places right now, people’s rights are disappearing, and Andor reflects that. [In the show] the Empire is taking over, and it feels like the same thing is happening in reality, too,” she explained.

What's his tax policy?
A mixture of off hand rulling to nationalization and confiscation of assets >There were also certain increases in the state control and centralization of economic procedures. This included the nationalization of commercial enterprises like the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, the Commerce Guild, the Corporate Alliance, the Hyper-Communications Cartel, and other commerce within the Empire. In addition, one of the first actions of the Empire was, upon nominating Gahg to Minister of Finance, to completely annex the seized holdings of various defeated Separatist worlds, which had been nearly completed a few months later.[8] The InterGalactic Banking Clan managed to avoid the fate of its co-conspirators and wasn't completely shut down, though the Empire exerted a considerable degree of control over it. The Empire would also go on to nationalize the Fondor Shipyards around the time of the Battle of Yavin. This was due to complications involving the construction of the Star Dreadnought Executor, though the Fondor Guild of Starshipwrights would remain in place to oversee the project.[9] >The Empire continued to nationalize some corporate entities, but such actions were primarily reserved for those companies which were part of or supported the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and later those which favored and aided the Rebellion. The Empire did assume direct control over some of the spoils of war from the Separatists, but most of the assets were actually given over to loyalist companies such as Kuat Drive Yards, Sienar Systems, TaggeCo., and Merr-Sonn.[10][7] Unless they acted in opposition to its interests, the Empire largely left loyal companies alone and even expanded the territory of the Corporate Sector Authority to encompass 30,000 star systems.[11]
>>6503 So most of time it was left to planetary/sector level to decide the tax policies >Palpatine deployed one Moff in each sector. These officers were supposed to efficiently govern individual sectors and regions of the Empire. Though Imperial governors and Moffs were dispatched to oversee many of the planets and sectors of the galaxy, they largely maintained a policy of non-interference with respect to local politics.[6] The vast majority of the planets within the Empire maintained their own sovereign governments and everyday life for an average citizen was not very different from the days of the Old Republic, especially for those who strongly supported the New Order. However, if the Empire desired to obtain resources from a particular planet it would not hesitate to take it by force. Planets which had their governments entirely supplanted by an Imperial governor were usually Non-Human or those who supported the Rebellion.[7][5] Additionally, the planets located between the least restrictive areas of the galaxy, the Core Worlds and Outer Rim territories, bore the brunt of Imperial authority and scrutiny.[6] Overall, less than one in 80 planets experienced some sort of modification to their local governmental procedures or had members of a ruling body removed from office to better conform to the will of the Empire.[6] Other planets which were discontent with Imperial rule were kept in line with the Tarkin Doctrine of "rule by fear of force rather than force itself" although if the threat alone failed then actual naked force would certainly be used. Palpatine was consistently depicted as a off hands ruler.
To tax the muunikes. That's why (((The Rebellion))) conscripted young white men to die protecting (((their))) tax heavens.

I just want a SW game about being a bounty hunter. Doing missions to buy new weapons, armor and ships. Going planet to planet to see what bounties await, picking which side to work for if any on the current galactic war, buying a Twi'lek slave to turn into your qt AI companion, etc.
>>6492 I have considered making a game similar to this. It is just in the idea phase right now and would be unofficial of course. There are a couple other games I'd like to work on before fully committing to another project too. One area I'm unsure of is the Force. Should players have the option to be Force sensitive in character creation?
>>6492 Play SW Bounty Hunter or play TOR.
