It does, like the movies show. I jus ...

I guess I'm a little slow sometimes. I've always been confused about Anakin Skywalker being the "Chosen One" from prophecy. Prophecy to do...what? To bring Balance to the Force?

Also note that this is a Timothy Zahn thing. It was brought up in his new SW book called, "Thrawn."
It predates Zahn. The earliest mention I can recall is in the X-Wing novels (can't reme ...

Here is some layout love for a good write-up that hopefully quite a few people will be able to work into their games.



Good show! Shocked

I'm about a third of the way through (listening) a Star Wars novel written by S.A. Corey, the writing team behind The Expanse. I haven't read that series, and I haven't really tried the TV series, bu ...

It still begs the question of how the ship could cut another ship in half by accelerating through its physical space.

Lucas (and the WEG game) state that hyperspace is contemporaneous with normal s ...

Ya know, all this stuff about the Unknown Regions seems familiar. Today, I put my finger on that. It's Dark Empire.

In that Dark Horse comic story, Palpatine did some similar things. He had a re ...

This is pertinent to this conversation.
