Welcome to /sw/ Stormtrooper 09/30/2019 (Mon) 03:13:34 No.1
The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction.


• 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.
You are welcome (and wanted!) on acidkike's 8chan. Won't link or spam or shill it but as an SWfag who primarily posts on their /v/ I miss having you guys nearby.
>>3681 Mark killed /sw/ because the board was migrating elsewhere. Why should /sw/ get back in bed with him?
>>3688 Mark nuked /sw/ by accident because he's a fat fingered Jew and got the timing of that retarded migration wrong. He is not an admin on the new site in any way and is just a BO.
>>3681 Fuck off mark. No one is going on your dead shithole when webring has all the boards and can accommodate everyone. Kys.
>>3681 Go away, (((you))).

>>1 Free speech is a fucking joke. Quality discussion and non-retarded users are desirable, not shitty posts made by pleb-tier faggots who shit on even Lucas' Star Wars because they're ideologues. Hail Palpatine.
>>4287 free speech allows for small-scale deplatforming, ie banning people for faggotry or disruption. only large-scale deplatforming (our enemies' strategy) is a violation of free speech.
40k and Star Trek are way superior to Soy Wars

>>4662 The Dark Side is strong in this place then.
>>4662 The more interesting thing is that Lucas selling the franchise ended that discussion about what's canon and not >Lucas words and movies were the canon and what mattered when discussing the EU >Lucas relinquished control from the setting and contradicted the movies himself with his 3D Clone Wars cartoon The EU isn't bound by that discussion anymore, at least in my eyes. There is no canon anymore, since Lucas isn't in control anymore neither the movies are not the base which contradictions are based. We're kind of free to ignore any Disney or even Lucas stupid crap now.
>>4677 The 3D clone wars cartoon and the expanded universe that links to it is in alternative reality for all I care. >or even Lucas stupid crap now. He is a weird one, I'm still amazed on what he was trying to do in the Maul and Talon game.
>>4677 It was for the best then. A shame it came at the cost of Star Wars and its original heroes getting cucked beyond reason by Disney.
>>4677 > 3D Clone Wars cartoon Absolutely shit when compared to the original Clone Wars cartoon. The 3D cartoon is almost as pozzed than something created by disney
>>4686 >He is a weird one, I'm still amazed on what he was trying to do in the Maul and Talon game. I know that Lucas was a coomer for Talon but never heard about that one.
>>4725 The Story Of The Darth Maul Game That Never Came To Be https://archive.md/7qy1i >A friendly George Lucas entered the room and was eager to hear the pitch from Red Fly’s creatives. “Before they could finish their spiel, Lucas cut them off, stood up, walked over to the statues, rotated them to be facing the same direction, pushed them together, and said ‘They’re friends!’” adds the source. >“He wanted these characters to be friends, and to play off of each other. He talked about the show Burn Notice as a reference point. He likened Darth Maul to Sonny from The Godfather, and he likened Darth Talon to Lauren Bacall. He actually did an impersonation of her. It was supposedly the weirdest impersonation of a ’40s actress going, ‘Don’t you know how to whistle? Put your lips together and blow.’” >The problem with the idea of Maul and Talon teaming up for a buddy cop-like experience was that they were separated by over 170 years of Star Wars fiction >When this vast time divide was brought up to Lucas’ attention, he brushed off the notion of it not working, and said that it could instead be a descendant of Darth Maul or a clone of him. >Numerous ex-Red Fly staffers believe the cancelation didn’t come from the quality or lack thereof in their prototypes, but George Lucas’ decision to sell his company to Disney. “It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” says a former Red Fly employee. “Everything needed to be put on ice.” Is it true that Talon is Lucas waifu? Anyone got evidence about that or is it just a maymay? Reddit interview https://archive.md/fxUli
>>4736 Georgie Boy surely had a thing for twileks, first Ayla and then Talon. I wouldn't be surprised if some tale of him hiring hookers in twilek costumes/cosplays surfaces.
>>1 >wondered what was with all the 4chan-tier shit in the past couple years here >mfw coming across the info that /co/ has a shitty star wars general >mfw all the shit-tier nu-chan OC outside of the OC thread here/taste for shit-tier OC is finally explained >>4737 Admittedly I think George has a thing for submissive slave women; it's something that seems to come up a lot. I've wanted to make a joke copypasta about being invited to Skywalker Ranch for some corporate/charity thing and then "discovering"/being let in on the "secret" that George built it to roleplay as a slave owner, but I'm a lazy faggot.
Any Soy Wars menchildren here can explain to me how Mace Windu won against Darth Sidious lorewise instead of using irl reasons like Samuel L. Jackson chimp out and Lucas being a cuck? All lore youtubers who touched the subject got flooded in the comment section with niggers and jedi babies coping when someone suggested that Palpatine purposely let Mace win to manipulate Anakin.
>>4945 >that Palpatine purposely let Mace win to manipulate Anakin That was the whole plan.
>>4946 And yet people seethe when someone say that
>>4945 The novelization of RotS claimed that Windu's Vaapad style let him "conduct" Palpatine's dark side power, which let him hold his own during the lightsaber fight (and just barely hang on for a few moments against the lightning), but at the same time Windu still disarmed Sidious right as Anakin arrived so it remains entirely possible Sidious let him win.
>>4972 Not only Vaapad, he was also using the shatterpoint ability. He figured that Anakin was the shatterpoint of Palpatine (which he figured that was the shatterpoint of the "Dark Side itself"), the guy wouldn't make a move to defend himself... but he forgot to look for the shatterpoint of Anakin himself, so... he got his hand chopped.
This is our new home now. May the force be with your benises
Is this the last place that basically discusses the EU (and dont call it "Legends") and ignores Disney continuity (except to bash it)? Because all the forums i used to lurk in the past, like Force.net and StarDestroyer.net from the last i read, years ago, now focus on the new continuity? This board cant be the very last remaining place in the Know Universe that follows the EU...

>>5203 What's the difference between a dark jedi and a sith then?
>>5660 Dark Jedi is more or less a generalized term for dark-side force users. The Sith who originated as a splinter group of the Jedi Order are the most prominent dark-side cult but not the only one. Same goes for Jedi on the light-side. Unlike the Jedi, Sith also tend to fade into obscurity due to their habit of disappearing for up to 1000 years from the public before making an explosive comeback.
>>5660 Dark Jedi is a umbrella term for any jedi that uses the dark side, or more generically a dark side user. The Sith were a species that were conquered by dark jedi exiles that took the moniker to themselves and later members of an empire and then order based in teachings of said dark jedi (Now the Dark Lords of the Sith). Sith had it's own customs, languages, doctrines and all, instead of just using the Dark Side like any dark jedi do.
>>5707 Kreia and the old republic era goes further into detail than the EU. It is true that the original sith are often mistaken for the massassi warriors of yavin 4. However the original "je'daii" order was split following a schism where a sect of the order started following the teachings of the dark side and ignoring any attempts to stop them from abusing their power on non force sensitives. This irreversibly split the order in two. The sect was defeated and cast out, only to propogate themselves somehow and repeating cycles of light and dark. Traya wanted an end to this cycle because it threw her out on her ass and she was lucky to have survived her usurption. It was uncharacteristically kind of Sion and Nihlus to have let her live. Sith are not known for their mercy. Least of all Sith lords. Though given that the Exile canonically talks Sion to Death, there's not much to say there.
