Mark Hamill on the Muppets was cool. Alice Cooper on the Muppets was mind blowing.Luke was my favorite character and the more I saw of him anywhere, the better. The Muppets I watched every week as well. Match made in heaven.
I'd say that it speaks volumes about Anakin's character that his first instinct wasn't to heal, but to hack. Her death was syncing up with his nightmares, so, he fatalistically lashed out. The Dark Side makes you feel better when you're full of despair and anguish.So? Rey did it, and she wasn't ever trained in that ability. If she could do, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to assume that Anakin, the alleged Chosen One would have as well. And yes, why didn't Kenobi do it? It's like the most powerful ability in the entire universe!
So happy that I'll be able to see this again when they add the Muppet Show to Disney Plus this month...same. I remember the first time seeing it as a wee bairn and it sorta blew my mind, because I'd never had two of the things Iliked crossover like that before
Personally I think it's an excellent Fan product, and it's free to boot so I suggested checking it out. Also the 1E Retro-Clone rules Star Wars Classic Adventures is a great PDF as well.
I'm still new to the system, but a house rule I've read about other peeps using that seems good is using Perception and Dex for initiative. Declaring actions goes from lowest PER to highest PER (roll to determine ties), while resolving actions goes from highest DEX to lowest DEX.How do most people handle initiative in WEG Star Wars? I've noticed a few differences in the rules versions and am curious what works best for people.
Is this "Stan" the same Stan Shinn who made the comparison PDF, and posts on the Rancor Pit?
Just a coincidence.
You're making a connection here that doesn't exist.I'd say that it speaks volumes about Anakin's character that his first instinct wasn't to heal, but to hack. Her death was syncing up with his nightmares, so, he fatalistically lashed out. The Dark Side makes you feel better when you're full of despair and anguish.
The dude was well on his path to the Dark Side.
Like healing your friends and saving the life of loved ones.
You can’t tell me what to do!
Quick reality check: Not only was TLJ consistent with TFA, but Johnson's script was finished prior to TFA being completed and Abrams made changes to TFA to accommodate the TLJ script.We just have to remember that the Disney Trilogy was designed without a plan, having thrown out not one, but two. The first being Lucas' treatments (As was covered in Bob Iger's book) and the second when Rian Johnson went with a first draft script that was The Last Jedi. Which is why nothing in that trilogy makes sense and the last film effectively being a slap between grown men.
No, it wasn't. Daisy Ridley confirmed this in various interviews, like claiming that her character's parentage shifted because Abram's didn't know what he wanted to do with it. And no one should EVER run with a first draft of a script. You always need to do several passes, but Johnson has reportedly done so.Quick reality check: Not only was TLJ consistent with TFA, but Johnson's script was finished prior to TFA being completed and Abrams made changes to TFA to accommodate the TLJ script.
The 'disjunction' is what TLJ caused, you can see that when Solo bombed. The problem is that every sees that TLJ made money, so they assume that it was considered good. But that's not how it works.While it would have been nice to have somebody creatively in charge (preferably someone who understood Star Wars), the reality is that the disjunction happened entirely after TLJ is released.
Been thinking about this for a bit now. It's actually kinda difficult to model, as Beskar is essentially presented as "equal" to a lightsaber. I'd probably do it as 3D armour on all locations, with any failures indicating the shot managed to hit an unarmoured location. Then allow parrying as per the lightsaber rules (as per Mando using his gauntlets to parry lightsaber attacks). As for the various armorments, these are already well modelled by Boba Fett's write-up in the sourcebook.Say! Fun experiment. How would YOU stat up Mandalorian armor in 1e?
Ideally with wrist gauntlet flamethrower and cool targetting stick thing on the helmet?
And that is why I feel deconstructing Star Wars is pointless. It's a knowing reconstruction of something already thoroughly deconstructed.Makes sense as Dune is a critique of the superman and messiahs so common in early pulp and space opera that SW (initially) takes a more intentionally naive view on.
That's fair. I'm not looking to argue anyone out of enjoying it.Good point, but I did like TLJ, I guess most of the 'deconstruction' passed me by and I just enjoyed it as an adventure, although it had flaws due to the baggy plotting. I'm a fan of the last shot myself.
Well I DO want to argue you and everyone else into enjoying The Star Wars Holiday Special.That's fair. I'm not looking to argue anyone out of enjoying it.
Like most people not born in Murica, I never understood PB&J sandwiches - until I bought a jar of Skippy from Costco.Peanut butter and jelly, how could thee?
Btw am I imagining it or was there a reference to Life Day in the Mandalorian?
