Since this board is dead Anything goes in this thread. As a starting topic, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Even if they were controlled opposition, were they in the right? How would things have gone if, somehow, the CIS were allowed to become independent?

>>3857 >mistyped Revan as Regan Oh well.
>>3855 Pulling from memory but every world they occupied they fucked up with their terraforming or overal dismantling of technology and using their biowanking in place. >And what was that like? They at the top, the rest enslaved From the wiki >Local planets were ruled by the Intendant caste, with Prefects administering the worlds under their command. However, a few systems were known to have been granted to select Domains. The members of the Priest caste were charged with managing ceremonies and ensuring the loyalty of the masses >The empire's reasons for conquering a world often varied; planets such as Belkadan and Tynna were terraformed and used for production of vital materiel such as dovin basals and villips, while the worlds of Malastare and Brentaal IV were captured to lock up supply lines and establish strategic rendezvous points for Yuuzhan Vong fleets. Others still, like Kalarba and New Plympto, were destroyed outright. Regardless of the purpose a given planet would ultimately serve, each successful attack expanded the Yuuzhan Vong empire's territory
>>3859 So, would it theoretically be possible to have an occupation/resistance story on one of those conquered worlds which the Yuuzhan didn't hit as hard?
>>3857 >I guess they just went "Revan is kinda canon male so let's make this one kinda canon female." That's what I was thinking. >I don't know how they handled her in TOR Sounds like complete trash from what I hear. Shame.
Following what the other anon asked, why exactly are the Yuuzhan Vong controversial among the SW fanbase?
>>3860 Are you planning on making something, trooper?
>>3867 the Yuuzhan Vong break the universe, and completely clash with the character and aesthetic of Star Wars. they're full of illogical nonsense, like combining bio-wankery with immunity to the Force, and have a very jarring effect on the timeline. they also subvert the OT, which to me is an unforgivable offense. they belong in WH40K, in fact they feel like they were created by a Warhammer fan who hates Star Wars for some reason. with that said, I'd rather have spiky Vong dicks than Disney.
>>3868 Yes, even if it's just background material. It would help the troopers who can write better make a story of it. Think Enemy at the Door meets Victorian boys' adventures. >>3870 What can I say, Mongols tend to fuck established things over when they show up. Better than endless IR capers.
>>3871 >What can I say, Mongols tend to fuck established things over when they show up. Better than endless IR capers. I see your point, but if something like the Vong invasion had to happen, it should've been in the distant past, not shortly after the OT. also, it's entirely possible to break new storytelling ground without dropping a nuke on the universe. it's a bad idea, especially when it subverts the OT.
>>3872 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcZ9kQ1h-ZY >subvert Nonsense! From day one, the EU has been a showcase of just how messy the Galaxy can and will be outside the heroic epic of the movies. Hell, after Return of the Jedi, they had to deal with an extra-galactic invasion on top of the vigorous Imperial Remnant. Why, in the supplementary materials, Sate Pestage had that celebrating mob on Coruscant gunned down by Stormtroopers to the last. Just because one great evil is triumphed over, does not mean another great evil cannot rise from another quarter. The story does not end.
>>3873 of course, the Galaxy is a messy place, and there's no need for the story to end. however, we can do that without plowing a freight train of spiky rape into the story and setting. the OT, as seen in theaters in the 70s and 80s, is the pinnacle of Star Wars. while much can be added to this, the central narrative must not be subverted. if the Yuuzhan Vong invasion happens, that gives the OT a bad ending. you see, if the Empire had won, they'd be well equipped to fight off the Vong. Imperial Star Destroyers, AT vehicles, and legions of troopers would give them serious trouble, and a working Death Star or two would annihilate their worldships. the only way the Vong could cause so much death and destruction is if the Galaxy is seriously weakened and divided by a successful Rebellion decapitating the Empire's top leadership (ie Endor). of course, no one knew this would happen, but the fact remains, if the Vong invade, the Galaxy would be much better off under an Imperial victory. that does indeed subvert the OT, which I cannot accept. there's other problems too, such as the fact that the Yuuzhan Vong are immune to the Force, yet they use biotech, and the Force flows through all living things. and there's a thematic clash -- the Vong are essentially the Hostile Alien Invasion trope, yet the Galaxy is full of alien species, so they come from another galaxy. it just doesn't fit, they belong in WH40K as I said. the only ways I'd accept the Yuuzhan Vong is if 1. they were nerfed and turned into a dangerous species somewhere on the Outer Rim, or 2. their invasion happened centuries or millennia BBY. you could even combine these, by having the invasion happen long ago, with a surviving remnant on some distant planet(s).
Are there any fans who are pro-Jedi (or at least prefer them over the Sith) but pro-Empire, or pro-Sith but pro-Rebellion (probably the rarest)? If so, where?

>>3867 >biowank >coral ships cumming molten rocks are capable of fucking with turbolaser resistant shields and durasteel >their ships due some big brain gravity manipulation are able to withstand a fucking turbolaser in the face when those things are capable of vaporizing shit on spot >mind that turbolasers had some nuke tier punch >a refugee population in dying worldships that were millenia were capable of overpowering a galaxy that have planets like Coruscant or able to churn quintillion of battle droids in less than a year >their durka durka jihadi troops have those crab armors that are able to withstand blaster fire just because when those things can penetrate and put holes in plasteel, concrete and turn organic matter into charred meat >they are somehow not affected by the Force despite using critters and being alive even when rocks and air are affected by it >and not being affected not as "yslarmiri force repellent bubbles" but as "not registering and being affected by it at all" wank >you cant grab then with tk, cant mess with their minds when the Force is supposed to be an universal field created by living beings >Palpatine could tear a fucking whole in the spacetime but cant tk some vong shit Basically this, they are the snowflakes of SW, the closest offender to that was the mandowank
So what does Jonesposting in the Galaxy look like? Remember, it's never supposed to be dead-on, but with a blend of fact and fiction.
>>3886 Conversely, are there any fans here who are pro-Republic and generally pro-Jedi, but admit that the Jedi and Republic were both hopelessly corrupt, complacent, and in need of reform (genuine reform, NOT just being turned into an Empire) by the prequel era? Because that's where I stand.

Should they have kept Shaak Ti's original death scene? It tied with the OG Clone Wars quite nicely, meanwhile having her die during meditation and off-screen was very lame in comparisson.

>>2730 >were they in the right? Unironically yes. The Republic was stifling the free market and they were the only ones keeping the Outer Rim in check. If the CIS hadn't become puppets of the Sith, they would've had every right to usurp the Republic.
Congrats on being alive and welcome to the site, i haven't seen you fellas since the cakekike incident
>>5039 Counterpoint: They were literally a bunch of hand-rubbing space kikes with a penchant for war crimes. There were some Separatists with genuine ideals who had a point about the Republic, but the Separatists' leaders and actions speak louder than the few idealists.

>>5046 They have literally hand rubbing space huttish bankers in their leadership, they had army divisions as "debt collectors". CSI leadership was the worst corporate scum in the galaxy >I am your reward, don't you find me handsome? Heh... they got what they deserved

>cis had every right to usurp the republic until they became pawns of the sith? So basically the other side of the coin with the rebel alliance?
>>5110 In a way, yeah, that's what the CIS were. Except they were mostly fueled by financial issues or greed along with a hatred for the Republic's lack of interest in the Outer Rim aliens.
New actors or using those creepy CGI masks like they did with Tarkin and Leia?

>Ventress was originally going be resurrected after the Dark Disciple mumbo jumbo and have a duel againts Kylo Ken, but Filoni changed his mind because reasons
>>5362 That sounds bloody terrible but it's definitely something I'd expect from that hack.
>>2730 They were obviously being stupidly greedy and their supporters were motivated by anger due to the lack of attention the outer rim was getting. The CIS never stood a chance and they were going to be screwed no matter what.
Fact, so called CIS "War Crimes" are Republic propaganda. >>2734 END THE FED
>>2730 >spoiler It's a shame. What other non-faggy places for Star Wars discussion are there?

>>5732 Fuck, I just now realized that was what was meant.
>>5738 I think wanting to fuck droids/robots is pretty weird. why would you be attracted to a humanoid object? that said, I wouldn't mind seeing Bender & Amy get it on. that's different, because the robot is being used to fuck the woman, and I'm focused on her.
>>5784 >why would you be attracted to a humanoid object? Its not an object, its my wife.
What are the best books to get for lore stuff? Things like lightsaber forms, learning the cultures of the various planets in the universe, that sort of thing?
>>5798 There is a channel that talks about lightsaber combat that you might find useful, but unfortunately it's hard to find because of search engines being dog shit and normalfags spewing dog shit videos. I'm sure if you look at, for instance, the video by that Captain Fordo, you'll find it in the recommended section if you get lucky. As an aside, I really wish youtube or one of the invidious instances would implement a way to block channels that I will never fucking watch.
>>5800 *that Clone Wars video by Captain Fordo
>>5800 I'll check it out then, thanks, m8. And I agree with that sentiment about Youtube. Seems like even if you tell them not to show specific content, it'll be put in the related video area anyway.
