Yes. It's all tongue-in-cheek.


No offense, but I find it something to be desired.


As I said, the new Zorro book would be just fine for Dukes of Hazzard, except that you would need car chase rules.

The first offense will generate a friendly warning message. Subsequent offenses will be subject to disciplinary actions (See below).

Are you referring to Cobb Vanth, the guy on Tatooine who Boba Fett couldn't get his armor back from for years?

"Coy" and "Vance" are references to The Dukes of Hazzard 5th season replacement characters for the two main actors who were in contract disputes at the time. Despite being straight up rip-offs of the cousins they replaced, they proved to be very unpopular among die hard fans of the show. When the main stars returned to the show, they wrote the replacements out of the story and then after that pretended that they had never existed.

Coy and Vance wore the same clothes as Bo and Luke. I wonder if the SW character was named after Coy and Vance, since he was a Boba Fett pretender of sorts.

That's some interesting info on the possible origins of the name of Cobb Vanth.

I've never seen an episode of The Dukes of Hazzard. Embarassed

It's a classic. It ran for 7 seasons from 1979-85, CBS on Friday nights. Some seasons it was on after The Incredible Hulk. It was a very popular show about an ex-moonshine bootlegging family in Georgia that always gets tangled up in the criminal plots of the corrupt county commissioner and sheriff. Car chases and stunts are a staple of the show. Every episode was narrated by Waylon Jennings. My brother and I loved it when we were kids. Here's a link to the intro sequence.

I remember watching both The Dukes of Hazzard and The Incredible Hulk on TV waaaay back when I was a kid. Hell, I even remember the short-lived The Dukes of Hazzard spinoff Enos. Man, those were simpler days.

If you're looking for Galactic Rednecks, look no further than Agamar. The stereotype of dumb, backwater hicks was played up to great effect in the Wraith Squadron books. Then use the Blockade Runner's Guide to make yourself a hotrod lumrunner starship. Painted bright orange, of course.

Speaking of Star Wars and Moonshine, has anyone else had their ship's engineer run a still through the ship's hyperdrive?

Ha! I did run a player with an engineer PC who built a still into the ship's artificial gravity generator and its power system. The shine had the power to suddenly increase the gravity under the character drinking it.

Cool
