You are Roa Koo’lade, a thirteen-year-old Zabrak girl. You are the Jedi Apprentice of Council Master Plo Koon.You have just completed your Initiate Trials, with Master Koon as your new teacher. Two of your fellow initiates, Bi’teme and Rali K’nona, were chosen as apprentices as well. You also fought a vicious duel with Dhevel Arjuna, a Zeltron whom you have a rivalry with. He was not selected by a Master and must now join the Jedi Service Corps.>Previous threads: 1: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22850428/2: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22958349/>A warning: I’m a fucking slow writer.
Bright sunlight illuminates your quarters. Mumbling drowsily, you sit up in your bunk and rub sleep-sand out of your eyes, before stretching and yawning. You swing your legs out of the sheets and take a look at the clock. It is currently 0932 Standard Coruscant Time, quite a bit later than the hours you’re used to waking up at. The staff presumably let you and the other trainees sleep in because of the Trials yesterday. Dhevel probably hasn’t gotten that luxury, though. He’s probably already on his way to a starship chartered for some agri-world. In light of that, your promise to help him train, or at least that others would help him train, rings hollow. Oh well, you tell yourself. It was his own fault that he didn’t get selected.After shucking off your sleepwear and pulling on your tunic and leggings, you shuffle over to the door. You paw at the empty alcove next to the frame where your training lightsaber used to rest, before you remember that you returned it last night before dinner.You’re not sure where you want to go first today.>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important room of the day.>Go to the Room of a Thousand Fountains. Some meditation might be relaxing.>Go to the main training chamber. Some of Master Koon’s advice doesn’t involve swinging lightsabers.>Other.
>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important room of the day.Keeping up your energy when having an active lifestyle is important
>>23076811>>Go to the Room of a Thousand Fountains. Some meditation might be relaxing.perhaps we will see Dhevel and can say good by
>>23076811>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.Even a Jedi knows the benefits of a good breakfast.
>>23076811>>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important room of the day.A sound soul dwells within a sound mind and a sound body.
>>23076811Am torn between eat and meditating....Eh, lets go with>Go to the Room of a Thousand Fountains. Some meditation might be relaxing.
>>23076811>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.Who know's if we'll even get lunch or dinner today.
Wow, I didn't really expect you to show up any more. What a pleasant surprise.
>>23076811>He’s probably already on his way to a starship chartered for some agri-world. In light of that, your promise to help him train, or at least that others would help him train, rings hollow.They'd just ship some semi-trained force sensitive person off because he doesn't meet the standards yet? So he can stew in his anger? Really?>>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important room of the day.Then see if we can do something for him afterwards.
>>23077107AgriCorps dude. Read up:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jedi_Service_Corps
>>23077107Well. I mean.Her name is Kool Aid.She's gonna be busting through walls and shouting 'OH YEAH' one way or another.
>>23077107That's how it was, at least in the Old Republic. If you can't quite hack it as a proper Jedi Knight, they bump you to a different department.
>>23077119Wow, that sucks quite a bit. I doubt he'd accept the consolation price, to be honest.
>>23077179They don't let people with shitty eyesight be fighter pilots, why should people who can't hack it be given the MASSIVE responsibility of a Jedi Knight?
>>23077200To be fair, the Jedi Service Corps was supposed to be no less important than any other branch of the Jedi Order, and, in fact, many members join the Service Corps voluntarily. It's only a bitter pill to swallow if you botch your Initiate training, as it's the Jedi Order's way of saying, "Well, you can't make it as a Knight, so we'll have you make do over here in this other department." They can't just send 'em home, either.
>>23077200Because people who fail to become fighter pilots rarely get swayed to turn into evil fighter jets by ancient artifacts and then proceed to slaughter their former colleagues.
>>23077235And ground crew are just as important to the functioning of a fighter as the pilot (although the Zipper Suited Sun Gods would NEVER publicly admit this), if not more so (if the bird can't fly, it doesn't matter how good the pilot is).
>>23077250Basically, Dhevel got the equivalent of a desk job in the Jedi Order. I mean, he's still TECHNICALLY a Jedi, but yeah.
>Go to breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.The growling of your stomach makes the decision for you. You exit your dormitory and turn left, heading for the passageway that leads to the Temple Refectory. There are no other trainees present in the corridors of your section, but you suppose that everybody else is already at lessons. The service corridors of the Temple are designed to allow staff and machinery to move around without disturbing the main areas. Lit by blue glow-rods at sparse intervals, the tight, curving tunnels link to almost every large chamber, including the dining halls. As a youngling you spent hours upon hours memorizing the deliberately convoluted corridors’ layout through both illicit exploration and the supervision of a Master.After a few minutes of walking you come across a door marked “Refectory.” You can already smell delicious aromas that make your stomach yowl again, spurring you onwards in your quest for food.Temple architecture is designed to be beautifully utilitarian. Across the vaulted ceiling of the refectory run simple glow-strips that illuminate the entire room with soothing white light. Hung between the pillars lining the walls, a dozen wide-screen holodisplays show news reports from across the galaxy. Long trestle tables, most of them occupied by late-rising Knights and Masters, fill the ground level. A group of younger Jedi, apprentices from the look of them, is seated at one particular table.You immediately head over to a countertop almost overflowing with fresh breads, cereals, and fruits. >Pick a breakfast. Get creative. How much do you know about Star Wars food, /tg/?
YESSSS. Love this quest.
>>23077235Thing is, most of the washouts actually grow to enjoy the work.Not Dhevel, of course. I need some kind of nemesis for you.
>>23077386Hot oatmeal, seasoned with Alderaanian brown sugar and a bit of jelly. Fuckin' delicious.
>>23077431A warm meal should start our day off right.
>>23077386blue milk, small cut of bantha steak, eggs.
>>23077520>bantha i mean nerf
>>23077520 pairs nicely with >>23077431.
>>23077431And a nice big glass of blue milk. And some nerf sausages. And some pallies. Gotta have dat calcium and dat protein, and Zabrak ARE carnivorous. And pallies are just plain delicious.
>>23077520No meat, apparently. I grieve for these people.
>>23077533They're both giant bovine creatures. One's a cow, the other's a buffalo.
>>23077549I'm sure there's at least one jedi ritual that requires an initiate to eat two of every known species.
>>23077549>Jedi>herbivoresI believe it.
>>23077549but a zabrak cant be a vegetarian they would get sick/weak and die
>Not getting grits n' cornbread>Galactic Grits and Bantha Biscuits.
>>23077386Nothing. Try to get a balanced meal with enough sugars and starches to get us moving and a fair amount of plant proteins to keep us going. Try to get a look at one of the displays to catch up on the weather and such.
>>23077546>>23077570>Zabrak ARE carnivorous>but a zabrak cant be a vegetarian they would get sick/weak and dieI'm sure the Jedi Order can make some concessions for something like that.
>>23077549You know the worst part?There is a rare delicacy, a hot drink made from a plant found on only eight planets in all the galaxy. An indulgence to which Luke Skywalker was introduced by Lando Calrissian.It's name?"Hot chocolate". Yes, this "Hot Chocolate" is just little known enough that we probably can't score any on temple grounds.>>23077546Good lord how much do you people plan to EAT?
the jedi order as a whole has no restrictions on diet. In the canon tv shows and movies they are seen eating animal flesh.
>>23077623>Good lord how much do you people plan to EAT?Hey. We're a growing girl! We need lots of food to grow up big and strong like Agen Kolar, after all.
>>23077623>cocoa>one of the rarest plants in the galaxyThat's pretty silly, thinking about it, but hey.
>>23077637Can we have a piece of failed initiate?
>>23077655If you accept NJO and later stuff as canon it gets worse. Seven of the eight worlds got Vongformed.
>>23077623dude we are a zabrak a meat eating two hearted horned devil beast
>>23077677>If you accept NJO and later stuff as canon it gets worse.Isn't that pretty much the rule for everything star wars?
>>23077711Let's not get into that right now. There's a quest to be had here.
>>23077655At least it EXISTS, and doesn't have some silly crazy name. Actually, it's very first appearance is pretty funny, because it does that same big buildup to make you think it's this crazy space drink shit, then just "hot chocolate". Tim Zahn was trolling everybody in that chapter.
>>23077677>Speak of the devil, and he'll pop out when you least expect it.You take a tray from a waiting pile. After a moment of thought, you take a bowl of brown sugar oatmeal and a piece of toast spread with jelly. You also select one of the several plates of nerf sausages for those species that happen to be carnivorous, like yours. Finally you pick up a glass of blue milk to wash it all down.You turn around with your laden tray, smoothly sidestep an oncoming cleaner droid, and head towards the eating area. You scan the groups of full Jedi for your Master’s distinctive orange, wrinkled pate, but as you suspected, Plo Koon isn’t there. A waving hand draws your attention to the apprentices. One of them, an energetic-looking Twi’lek, waves at you to come over. You notice that Bi’teme is also sitting among the older apprentices.>Join them.>Sit alone.>Other.
>>23077881>Join them.No need to be anti-social.
>>23077913I agree. No reason to join the dork side.
>>23077881>Join them.Don't see why not. Expect to get bombarded with lots of questions about what Plo Koon is like.
>>23077881>Sit alone and brood on our dark plans to bring darkness to the darkies.Kidding, sit with our buddies.
>>23077881>Join them.No rule that says we can't be a bro.
>>23077881>>Join them.so whats every one doing today
>>23077881Join them.I really don't see why not.
>>23077881I am too dark and edgy for twi'leks. I sit alone
>Like there would be any debate. Silly QM.“Hi!” the perky Twi’lek girl says brightly, as you approach the apprentices’ table. “I’m Vasiyu! You must be Roa. It’s nice to meet you! Bi’teme’s told us a lot about you!”You smile back as the ten or so apprentices at the table also greet you, albeit more calmly. “Yeah, that’s me. It’s a pleasure to meet you all too. Morning, Bi’teme.”“Morning, Roa.” He scoots over to make space for you to sit. “Have you seen K’nona?”“Nope. I think Rali’s still asleep.”One of the other apprentices, a spotted Theelin boy, leans closer in a conspiratorial manner. “You and Bi’teme just completed your Trials, right? So which Master did you get?”“Master Trebor,” Bi’teme replies.“I hear he’s a famous diplomat,” a tattooed Kiffar girl says. “You’re pretty lucky to get him. He’ll be a great teacher.”“What about you, Roa?” Vasiyu asks.You hesitate. “Uh…”>Tell the truth.>Don’t brag.>Other.
>>23078141Tell the truth, but do so humbly.
>Tell the truth. You can be excited b\c he is a great Jedi but don't brag.
>>23078141>Tell the truth.They won't believe it for a second until Plo Koon actually shows up, BUT WHEN HE DOES, man, the whole table will flip. Metaphorically, I mean.
>>23078141Tell the truth but try to be humble about it.But not to the point where we sound like we're bragging anyway.
>>23078141Tell the truth but don't brag.
>>23078141>> brag.not bragging is the biggest brag we could in frount of jedi
>>23078141truth but humble also we need to start putting the moves on that twi'lek
>>23076919Plus these jedi are actually fa/tg/uys.
>>23078340We're a 13-year-old female Zabrak Jedi Padawan to a Council Master, and you want to go gay NOW?
>>23078340>we need to start putting the moves on that twi'lekNo. We don't. We'e a Jedi, we're not gonna waifu anyone.
>>23078408To say nothing of how improper waifuing leads to the dark side and is almost expressly verboten in the Old Republic Order.
>>23078411>>23078340I disagree with these two.
>>23078391is this not 4chan?
>>23078433Remember people, this quest is run by votes. That said I'll try to curb the waifuing as much as possible. That stuff is the bane of SWQ and all its offshoots.On the other hand, Bindo had a wife.
>>23078411sounds good to me!
>>23078433no sweet cunt should be safe from our hardbodied zabrak lust machine
>>23078484I vote for no waifu-ing.For now.
>>23078484im not asking for a waifu just a little innocent experimentation
>>23078484I'm sure a 13 year old apprentice who has just been chosen as an apprentice by a jedi master has other things on her mind right now.
>>23078425>and is almost expressly verboten in the Old Republic Order.Specifically the order HEAVILY discourages romantic relationships post-Ruusan Reformations. Before that, plenty of Jedi had families, took lovers husbands and wives, et cetera.
>>23078555One Jedi Knight famously had his own harem, as was custom of his race.
>>23078551you don't remember being 13, do you?
>>23078570You've never been a 13 year old female, have you?
>>23078570Our character was raised under the influence of the Jedi Order since infancy. I'm pretty sure a standard 13-year-old life is nonexistant for us.
>>23078594This.Shit. Why don't we just go full retard - extract what training we can from Plo, steal everything that's not nailed down, go get our shiny new rival and become baby sith lords?
>>23078615>Why don't we just go full retardNo.
OP said no waifu/husbandu/futabu/otherbu shit. No experimenting with our fellow padiwans. Go jerk off and come back when you can think about something besides sex.
>>23078568Ki-Adi Mundi, he received special dispensation due to the Cerean race's combination of a VERY high ratio of females to males with a low birth rate. Also, they weren't a harem, they were his wives. Cereans are polygamous.Hell a good chunk of Prelude to Rebellion was him having issues with Sylvn, one of his daughters.
>>23078615>ohyou.jpeg“Um,” you say eloquently. “Master Koon.”The table explodes (metaphorically, of course) in shocked outbursts and statements of disbelief, to the point where the Jedi at the nearest table glance disapprovingly in your group’s direction. You feel your cheeks heat in embarrassment, but you refuse to lower your head to try to hide it.“No way,” the Theelin boy says resolutely. “A Council Master? And one who just got finished training another apprentice only six months ago? No. Way.”“It’s true,” Bi’teme replies. “I saw her walk into the Trial chamber alongside Master Koon. Besides, he only took over Master Swan’s training for the last year.”“I hear he’s kind of…unorthodox for a Council Master,” a blue-skinned Duros mutters. “Almost Qui-Gon Jinn unorthodox. The rumor mill even says he discovered some Light Side-style of Force lightning.”You haven’t heard that one before.“He’s gotten into trouble with the Council a few times for using “excessive force”,” the Kiffar chimes in. “Kel Dors have strong senses of justice, and their morality is black-and-white. Master Koon has killed people before. Utterly despicable people, of course, but still…”Bi’teme frowns. “So Master Koon is a person with strong feelings. There’s nothing wrong with that. If he’s on the Council then he can clearly deal with his emotions.”“He’s no loose cannon,” Vasiyu says. Her voice lowers to a near-inaudible whisper. “But do you all remember Master Dooku and the Twenty? How they lost their patience with the Council when Master Jinn died? I get that sort of impression from Master Koon.”
>>23078693You feel somewhat annoyed by this gossip about your Master, and you’re about to say that you know nothing about him and plan to get to know him without the aid of any rumors, when you hear a gravelly voice coming from just past the corner of your eyes.“Good morning, Roa,” Plo Koon says, holding a single cup of juice with a straw. “Do you have room for one more?”…how did he get there without anybody noticing? Again?>Invite him to sit.>Let the others respond. It’s their table.>And yes, I’m well aware that Plo Koon doesn’t have any problems with the Council. These kids are just being kids.
>>23078623Learn to understand textual sarcasm, you stupid aspy.
>>23078703>Let the others respond. It’s their table.Like they would deny a Master.
>Invite him to sit if the others don't mind. (They won't)
>>23078703Scoot over slightly and motion to that spot. Motherfucker clearly has good taste if he has a sippy cup.
>>23078705I have sensed darkness within this thread.Monitoring.
>>23078703>Let the others respond. It’s their table.We may not have an issue with him, since he's our master and all, but the others might get antsy if a fucking MEMBER OF THE HIGH JEDI COUNCIL is sitting at their table.
>>23078703>Let the others respond. It’s their table."I'm not sure if there's any more space."And look at the others.
>>23078693>some Light Side-style of Force lightningOh shit. Oh shit yes. Now, we just need to find out if we can see Shatterpoints. . .>>23078703>Let the others respond. It’s their table.
>>23078772No. Proper answer:>"Of course, that is, if they don't mind."
>>23078779If we could see shatterpoints, that'd be pretty disgusting. Isn't Mace Windu one of the only known users/recognizers of shatterpoints?
>>23078809In this timeframe yeah. I was more thinking about how "ability to see Shatterpoints" + "ability to use force lightning" = "greatest field medic ever".
>>23078829How the fuck does Force Lightning, even a light-side rendition, make us a good medic?
>>23078787this or>"Of course,master that is, if every one else doesn't mind."
>>23078853Kill them hard enough that they come out the other side of death all healed up?
>>23078829defibrillator?>>23078870or you know something completely retarded
>>23078853Ask the writers of Legacy, man.
I say we scoot over, Force-pushing someone off the other end of the bench if we have to.
>>23078890"Shatterpoints" are Force-acknowledged weakpoints in any given structure that the Force points out to you if you have the gift to see them. The closest approximation I can make to that is the power the main male character of Tsukihime has who can see lines on objects and people, and if he cuts along those lines, he can destroy them effortlessly.That said, I still don't see how Shatterpoint + Force Lightning = medic.
>>23076795Come to think of it, what would be the source of light-side lightning? docent it come from anger? maybe its like avatar with aangs fire-bending.
>>23078870i like the way you think
>>23078953Force Lightning is the most immediate rendition of the Force being twisted into a dark power used for destruction. It's the most iconic rendition of the destructive power of the dark side made manifest.
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Force_lightning#Variants_of_Force_lightning>Plo Koon used this ability (which he called Electric Judgment) to subdue a criminal named Pommel, who had taken a hostage. Koon used Force lightning to knock Pommel out, yet claimed to have no plans to experiment with it in the future.
>>23078953Pic related is the easiest way to access it. It's POSSIBLE to access it through other means, but doing so VERY difficult and considered inherently corrupting.
>>23078985that makes sense, i guess i always figured it came from the anger and hate twisted up inside the sith in question. but i can see your point.
>>23079013>Cade Skywalker was able to use Force lighting in a unique way. Utilizing his ability to see Shatterpoints in people and objects around him, he could use lightning to heal people, bringing them back from the very edge of death, or to kill them.
>>23079050That doesn't explain anything at all.
>>23079060Inconsistency in the wiki.What he does isn't ACTUALLY a variant of Lightning. He's essentially pouring raw Force energy into the shatterpoint, either to heal, "closing up the cracks" as it were, or to destroy, breaking it wide open. It LOOKS like Lightning, but it's a different ability.http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_transfer
>>23079060Or does it?
>>23079028He was talking about how to access light-side lightning. I'd say it's some manner of BURNING JUSTICE, to which Plo Koon obviously fits the bill. As >>23079013 said, though, he said "once and never again."
So guys, I know this is kinda metagamey, but has the Ionize been lost to the mists of time by now? Because that'll be useful as all get out come the Clone Wars.http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ionize
>>23079090That makes far more sense now. Force Lightning in the most traditional sense is nothing but destructive power.
>>23079050No he used a darkside healing gift. eventually he made it lightsidethere was crackling force lightning that came off his hands as excess power leaked out.
>>23078425It IS expressly forbidden. Old Republic jedi were chumps. Ur-Republic Jedi were morons. Grey Jedi where it's at, or whatever the fuck Darth Traya was.
>>23079113It sounds like a straightforward power. You just have to be pretty skilled at finagling with the Force to be able to short-circuit things.
>>23079130>Traya>GreyShe was a psychotic old bitch who had a couple of good points in among her insane ramblings. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.Jolee Bindo was a Grey Jedi, and a FAR superior role model.
>>23079060its magic it doesnt have to explain shit
>>23078425>implying Revan, the best jedi ever, wasnt fucking Bastila.>implying the Exile wasnt either lesbians for Visas or fucking Atton
>>23079130Darth Traya was a crazy old bat whose radical notions about the Force were wrong in every way, shape and form, as they flew in the face of everything known about it. Her ultimate fate was to be turned into a Force crystal and used as a scrying tool by the Emperor during the Imperial-Republic conflict 300 years after the Jedi Civil War.No, seriously. That's what SWTOR did to Kreia.
>>23079150>Jolee Bindo was a Grey Jedi, and a FAR superior role model.I don't want to become bald.
>>23079177I was sad when I found out the Exile was canon female. My male Exile had a ball naked-Echani-grappling with the hot Handmaiden.
>>23079177They were both pre-Ruusan Reformation, which is when the prohibition on romantic relationships came into effect.>>23079196We're a ZABRAK!
>>23079206Canon has her taking Brianna with her though.
>>23079050>We’re not a Skywalker, unfortunately.“Of course,” you reply, before turning to look at the other occupants. “That is, if you guys don’t mind?”All of them except Bi’teme and Vasiyu look rather nervous. That’s understandable. Who knows how much Master Koon heard?“Of course, Master Koon,” the Twi’lek chirps. She scoots over this time, opening up probably the last space at the table. “We were just talking about you. Roa says that she’s your new apprentice.”“I see,” Koon says, setting his drink on the table and carefully squeezing onto the bench. “Well, I can understand why you would be disinclined to believe her. As a matter of fact, I encountered her by lucky chance. She was having a practice spar with another trainee at the time, helping him with his technique.”“Ooh.”“So what brings you here, Master?” you ask.“I got a bit thirsty,” he explains. He opens a little plug in his mask and inserts the straw, chugging a good third of his juice. “Ah, muja juice. This one’s very fresh.”You raise an eyebrow. “Okay.”“Also, the Council wants to see you and me,” Koon continues. “Something about our first mission.”You perk up immediately and make to get up, but your Master bids you sit. “They can wait, Roa. Finish your food first.”</Breaking news from Fondor,> says a reporter shown on a holodisplay on the far wall. </After several weeks of searching, authorities have finally found clues about the recent string of hyperdrive parts thefts. We’ll go live to our reporter on the scene…>>Leave.>Finish the food.>Also, there’ll be a hiatus for one or two hours. Sorry, guys. Keep this thing alive.
>>23079177>implying Revan, the best jedi ever, wasnt fucking Bastila.He did, in fact, fuck the shit out of Bastila. Satele Shan, Jedi Grandmaster and one of the most potent individuals in the galaxy at the time (read: the events of SWTOR) is their direct descendant.
>>23079228Oh yeah. It was probably in the cut content. In vanilla KotOR 2, only the male Exile could take the Handmaiden.
>>23079208>We're a ZABRAK!I checked google image search, and wookieepedia, they seem to have hair on their head.
>>23079246>implying SWTOR is canonI refuse to allow Kreia to be turned into a force crystal and HK47 to be eternally farmed for pants.
>Finish the food.If we're leaving now who knows when we will eat next. HUrry it a bit but don't be sloppy.
>>23079241>Finish the food.We don't waste a good meal. Besides, if Council Master Plo Koon says it's cool, then it's cool. Also, that's an interesting news report.
>>23079241>>Finish the food.>>23079246I'd say one of the most potent EVER.She's the ONLY character on record who SURVIVED using Tutaminis to shut down a lightsaber by grabbing the blade. The only other character who pulled that trick was Nejaa Halcyon, and he died doing it. Impaled through the chest. And he was an acknowledged master of Tutaminis.
>>23079264From the depictions on the internet, only evil ones seem to lack hair in canon. Or nobody bothers to draw/model anything else.
>>23079241>Finish the food.Do as your master tells you, padawan.
>>23079246SWTOR isn't canon. KOTOR isn't even canon, even if it should be.
>>23079241we should finish our food.
>>23079317Bao Dur isnt evil.
>>23079344You're right, I had completely forgot about him. What a surprise.
>>23079298Well, she didn't quite "grab" the blade as she just "blocked" it, but still, that was pretty sick to watch. It's the same power Vader used to block Han's blaster shots with his hand during the Cloud City ambush in Empire Strikes Back.Side note: the novelization of Empire says the scene when Han draws his blaster and fires on Vader is the most in-tune with the Force he ever was and would ever be.
>>23079261>>23079339Continuity aside, the fact remains that most trends show that a good chunk of Force prowess is genetic. Between Revan, one of the strongest Jedi ever, and Bastila Shan, one of the most famous users of the famed Battle Meditation power, Satele lucked out.
>>23079370>>23079298>>23079246Thank you. I've never felt better about uninstalling SWTOR after seeing that laughable intro cinematic.
>>23079339TOR is S-Canon, the story is non-canon but non-plot elements such as force powers (although not game mechanics) which don't contradict higher-level canon are canon.KotOR is C-Canon, anything that doesn't contradict higher-level canon (except game mechanics) is canon.C-Canon is above S-Canon.Above C-Canon is G-Canon (the movies, movie scripts, novelizations of the movies, and radio plays based on them) and now (as much as I have mixed feelings about it) T-Canon (the TV shows), which falls between G-Canon and C-Canon.>>23079370Yeah, but again, she's the only one to ever absorb a lightsaber blade in the middle of a fight. And I know it's the same technique, that's established in the same book where Nejaa takes a 'saber through the chest trying the same stunt. He DID extinguish it and manage to kill his foe, but he died doing so.And this is a guy from a family of Jedi who are RENOWNED for being minmaxing faggots who gave up ANY talent at telekinesis (they can't even move fucking pebbles) for hax-level Tutaminis and damn good telepathy.
>>23079241>>Finish the food.
>>23079460It wasn't the intro cinematic. It was one of the promo cinematics leading up to the release, specifically the Battle for Alderaan, when Havoc Squad singlehandedly takes out a legion of Sith troops before they get almost wiped out by Darth Malgus (Satele's direct opposite in the campaign). Right as the Havoc Squad commander is about to be killed, Jedi Grandmaster Satele Shan shows up out of nowhere to make the save. Havoc Squad rallies, Malgus is defeated and driven out, and Alderaan is taken by the Republic.
Does anyone know if Tutaminis is present in Saga Edition?
>>23079261Wait what.Explain Kreia, please.
>>23079541It was pretty great to see that trooper guy just toss those Sith fuckers out of the way when he charged Malgus with a combat knife.
>>23079560See >>23079187It's the sad, but honest truth.>ofetyTr Emperor
>>23079472I'm browsing a board about rpgs and other tabletops on 4chan, playing a CYOA jedi quest and I think this is the nerdiest thing I've seen all week.And I don't mean that in any kind of good way.
>>23079575I had to look up the details on wikipedia, actually.I don't know that shit off the top of my head, but I have the internet at my fingertips. Why would I NOT use it to check up on shit like canon levels?
>>23079460>ever installing TORdisgusting
>>23079566That was the Havoc Squad commander at the time (he shows up as an NPC in the extended planet quest line of Alderaan after you do the main world questline). He was pretty boss, hockey-checking Sith fighters and even detonating his own grenade point-blank in Darth Malgus's face.
>>23079445>implying revan and bastila fucking to make super babies wasn't destined by the power of the force to happen.
>>23079187What the fucking fuck.Kreia was the best chaaracter I've ever seen.
>>23079610At least it wasn't divine conception like Anakin fucking Skywalker was.
>>23079622She was batshit loco dude. Well-written, but completely bugfuck crazy, convinced of her own superiority, the very thing she lectures you against.
>>23079541and the empire blew it up anyway
>>23079648That wouldn't be for another four millenia.
>>23079630the force is horny for making super humans
>>23079645She wasn't convinced of her own superiority. She routinely referred to herself as being stuck relying on something she'd grown to hate, for example.
>>23079630You weren't paying attention during Revenge of the Sith, were you?
>>23079668The crazy bint was convinced that she had figured out THE ANSWER.She literally thought she had figured out the definitive nature of the force.She had SUPREME philosophical arrogance going on.
>>23079586Could we please get back to the quest?
>>23079659who gives a fuck everything done to save alderaan such as pick up a piece of trash and put it in the bin was for nothing because some fuck decided to prove a point with a planet fuckering laser
>>23079693its on an hour hiatus
>>23079693We can't. OP is taking a 1-2hr hiatus. We're killing time.
>>230796932 hour break bro, op is getting his fuck on with the little zabrak girl he has locked in his image folder.
>>23079692>The crazy bint was convinced that she had figured out THE ANSWER.>She literally thought she had figured out the definitive nature of the force.>She had SUPREME philosophical arrogance going on.And she may well have. Pre-destination is a harsh master.It happened that way in KOTOR because Lucas approach to things he doesn't like is FUCK YOU CUNT.
>>23079748>doesnt like that boba fett became so popular >neuters anything that has to do with mandalorians >fires karen traviss
>>23079630Palpatine used the life creating midichlorian powers he described in vivid detail to create Anakin with the ultimate goal of having him for an apprentice.

>>23079773Anakin was the Emperor's Force-test-tube baby? Shit, that's about as ridiculous as the Rebel Alliance being Vader's idea, courtesy of The Force Unleashed.
>>23079802It's not as bad as having a bunch of Force-immune terrorists attacking people with giant black penis monsters.

>>23079921Tecnically, anyone with access to Phrik or the necessary skills to craft weapons or armor with a Cortosis weave can do it already.
well shit it looks like i just derailed my first thread.
I'm still bitter they turned the protagonist of Tie Fighter into yet another force using faggot.
not derailed till Op joins in too.

Why were the prequel-era books published by Scholastic so fucking awesome?Seriously, if you HAVEN'T read this series yet, you should.

>>23080433The series has a villain, one who works through schemes and wheels within wheels plots, one who always has a backup plan, named Xanatos.
You sit back down and begin munching on your toast.The holodisplay switches to a windswept landing pad. The HoloNet News reporter, an attractive Human woman with red hair, stands next to a distinctively bald Fondorian man dressed in a police uniform. </Over the last few weeks, several tens of millions of credits of hyperdrive parts have been stolen without a trace, until yesterday,” the reporter declared. “Inspector Yuron, what has the Fondor Civil Authority discovered about these thefts?”She held out her microphone to the Fondorian officer. </Someone got careless,> the inspector says. <My men found several DNA samples in the tuning area of the factory complex below this landing pad. We’re running genetic samples now, and we’ve already determined that the perpetrator was either a near-Human or a half-Human. We also suspect the involvement of accomplices skilled at slicing—multiple security doors were opened via administrative overrides from our mainframe.></Inspector,> the reporter says, </I’ve heard that several of those doors were found crumpled and torn from their frames, as if through some monstrous strength that no near-Human in the galaxy is known to possess. Is there any truth to these claims?></None whatsoever,> Yuron replies dryly. </Our forensics team detected residue from shaped charges at the sites of those particular doors. Whoever did this must have had very good training and equipment indeed, for no one to notice multiple underground detonations.>
>>23080540</Have you uncovered any motivations for these thefts?></Not yet we haven’t. Interestingly, though, the thefts targeted a single specific part called the null quantum field generator. It stabilizes a ship’s hyperspace corridor and blocks out the radiation and gravitational stresses of hyperspace travel. Without it, a ship will prematurely drop out of hyperspace.></Does this happen immediately?>The inspector’s face darkens. </Not always. Sometimes the hyperdrive fails midflight, and a ship is left stranded in interstellar space.>You have to wince at that. That’s a nightmarish thing to happen.The reporter also looks a bit frightened. </Inspector, were any hyperdrives accidentally built without this null generator? I understand that the factories are automated…></Not a chance,> Yuron says, shaking his head. <All hyperdrives undergo an after-fitting inspection to prevent precisely this from happening.>
>>23080540when the fuck did we get toast! op wtf
>>23080628>when the fuck did we get toastWell how ELSE are we supposed to run to the Council Chamber with toast hanging out of our mouth?
>>23080628We did. I read "jelly" and I thought "toast."
>>23080628Right here >>23077881>you take a bowl of brown sugar oatmeal and a piece of toast spread with jelly>>23080643>filenameWell played, clerk.
>>23080643>>23080648>>23080670i retract my jimmies from their previously rustled position and ask that you carry on in spite of my outburst.
>>23080545“Was that report related to our mission?” you ask, after swallowing the last piece of your nerf sausage. Almost everybody else has already finished their breakfasts and left.“Coincidentally, it was,” Master Koon replies. He stands up. “The High Council will be giving us our briefing in half an hour. Please meet me at the southwest tower once you’ve finished your breakfast.”“Yes, Master.”He nods and leaves. You wolf down the rest of your food, hand your tray to a passing cleaner droid, and stride out of the refectory. Keeping the High Council waiting is not a good idea, given that your own Master is a member. You’ve never been to this section of the Temple’s rooftop before, and you gawk in awe as you approach base’s entrance, where Plo Koon is waiting. He leads you through the entrance to the spire’s atrium, flanked by two statues of Jedi Knights of old with lightsabers activated and crossed over the archway. Up a short staircase, the marble-floored reception hall inside is lined on both walls with dozens of bronzium statues of ancient Jedi Masters. Beyond that yawns a deep chasm with another gigantic statue suspended over it. The bridge crossing the spire’s central shaft curves around that statue, onto a platform on the other side. A spiral staircase rises up from that platform, up and up into the heights of the spire. Plo Koon walks straight past the turbolift in the atrium and heads directly to the staircase. You—>Protest that there’s a turbolift right there.>Follow along. This is probably a test.
>>23080842>Follow along. This is probably a test.And besides, it's just some stairs. It's not like we can't handle it.
>>23080842I wanna say>Follow along. This is probably a test.but I'm wondering if the test is that Plo Koon wants to know if we'll pass up something practical just because we're following in his lead.
>>23080842follow, but not everything is a test, exercise is good for you.
>>23080900i wondered the same thing
>>23080900alternatively, that doing something more difficult for it's own sake is banthashit.
>>23080958>(i think it does anyway)Yup.Djem So is overwhelmingly powerful.
>>23080958>>23080972well, in that case, exercise should probably never be avoided. I'm persauded. Follow Koon on the stairs.
>>23080842Follow him, but ask"Aren't they waiting for us? Shouldn't we take the lift?"
So we're gonna go neutral side jedi and kill palpatine and anakin right?
>>23080842we take the stairs but remark about the lift
>>23080842You decide to follow his lead. This might be some kind of test, either of your endurance or your pragmatism, but you’ll play it safe. As you expected, the seven-minute walk up the staircase is long and wearing, but you manage it with natural Zabrak stamina and your own determination. Plo Koon, of course, looks completely unfazed by the kilometer-long ascent. “Master Koon,” you ask, “Wouldn’t the turbolift have been faster, for an appointment with the High Council?”“Most likely,” he agrees. “You could have taken it, you know.”You’re caught off guard by his remark. “Well…walking up staircases is good for building up endurance. Gravity, right?”“Of course, my Padawan.”At the top of the staircase, you emerge into the Operations Planning Center. Spanning this entire floor of the spire, the Center is dominated by the huge spherical holomap of the galaxy floating above the sunken projector in the center of the room. Within the image of the white spiral are marked the positions of thousands of Jedi stationed across the Core and Rim. Several worlds are marked in pulsing red, including Fondor in the Colonies.Master Koon leads you back to the main turbolift and summons it. After a moment, its doors hiss open to admit you two. The turbolift may be old, but it is fast enough to only give you a second to compose yourself in the face of meeting the High Council. Butterflies fly free in your stomach as you exit the car with your Master and walk down the short hallway leading into the chamber.
>>230812812/3Eleven solemn faces study you and Master Koon—Masters Windu, Rancisis, Billaba, Gallia, Kolar, Koth, Tinn, Piell, Yaddle, Poof, and finally the legendary Yoda himself. “Master Koon, Padawan Koo’lade,” the diminutive Grandmaster of the Order begins, “Information I have, for both of you. Seen the Holonet reports, I believe you have. Hyperdrive parts. From Fondor, stolen they were.”“We have reports of the null generators failing midflight and stranding vessels in interstellar space,” Master Windu states. “One of these vessels happened to be carrying the Techno Union Foreman, Wat Tambor. He has demanded an investigation of the thefts.”“Close ties to the Union, Fondor has,” Yaddle continues. “And mass panic, these hyperdrive failures would cause, if solved they are not.”“In addition, we have received disturbing rumors that several of the thefts may have been abetted by a Force-sensitive,” Master Gallia adds. “Do you think it’s related to the incident on Naboo two years ago?” Koon asks.“Perhaps,” Master Windu says. “In any case, your mission will be to locate the culprit of the thefts and ascertain whether Force powers were indeed used during the crimes.”Master Koon nods. “I and my Padawan shall leave for Fondor this evening.”“May the Force be with you,” the Council members intone at once.
>>23081371i like that you had the police lie to the public its realistic but why is the full council there it seems unlikely?
>>23081371stranded ships already>so much for "after-fitting inspection"
>>23081432Eh, sorry. It's been a while since I've read any books featuring the Council in session. All the same, they were all present during Episode I.
>>23081484nah your doing fine man keep it consistent and we will all love you
>>23081582I think we will love him even if he's occasionally inconsistent.
>>23081582indeed, its not detracting from the story so long as its consistent
>>230813713/3>My eloquence is rapidly fading. We’ll have to end this soon.“Master, shouldn’t we be preparing for our mission?” you ask as you follow your teacher towards the Sparring Arena.“We’ll have time enough for that,” Koon replies. “For now, I want to show some exercises you can practice to improve your lightsaber technique.”At the mention of the Jedi weapon, you wonder when you’ll be able to construct your own. The Arena is a white-walled amphitheatre that serves as the site of the annual Apprentice Tournament and as another training facility. White seating mats line the rim of the chamber; the center, dotted with obstacles and tripping hazards, is the primary sparring area. You recall that the arena can be set to have fluctuating gravity, extremes of temperature, intensely bright illumination or none at all, to simulate realistic dueling conditions for sparring initiates. Master Koon goes over to a small cabinet near the wall. He takes a training lightsaber from the cabinet and tosses it to you before entering the arena proper, standing at one end of the circle. You join him at the opposite end.“As I told you yesterday, footwork is a crucial part of swordplay,” he says. “For Djem So users like us, proper footwork allows us to properly focus our strength into our strikes. A slash made while standing still is rather weak, but one made while stepping forward and twisting can incorporate that extra momentum into itself.”He waves a hand and one of the metal rods littering the arena floor rises up about two meters in front of you.“Try cutting this rod in half, Roa. Use all of your strength.”>Combat check. Roll 1d20.
Rolled 18>>23081673>when you’ll be able to construct your own.Sadly, not for a while yet. Ah well, gives us some time to lok for the right crystals.
>>23081683>dat baby x-wing
>>23081710>Z-95>baby X-wingThat's backwards anon. It's more like the T65 is a beefed-up Headhunter, although that's not LITERALLY true.But we should keep an eye out for one. In this time frame, the Headhunter is a cutting-edge bird, and the perfect ship for a Jedi. Fast, easy to maintain, small enough to go unnoticed, and with enough teeth to win a fight if we have to.
>>23081803Plus they're dead sexy.
>>23081845Not like those ugly-as-sith duck-billed Hoersch/Kessel R-41 Starchasers.
Rolled 9>>23081894Fuck, thought that was the email field.
>>23081881>ugly as siththat said, don't get me wrong, I agree that Z-95 is a sexy beast. Although I would've preferred something larger, like a Phantom.
>>23081912Phantom?You mean that cloaked TIE variant?
>>23081958nah, I mean the TOR agent's corvette
>>23081993Well if we were gonna go for something with actual interior space, we could always go with a Baudo-class Star Yacht. I mean it was good enough for Booster Terrik.
>>23081899Any more rolls, guys? It's getting pretty damn late.
Rolled 19>>23082039Here you go, let's get us back to average.
>>23082018If you want to go booster-terrik style, don't stop short of a destroyer. We can paint it pink instead though.
>>23082088>paint it pinkWhy not paint it purple with an eye in the middle of the hull and strap a giant spike to the prowMaking it a one eyed one horned flying purple people eater
>>23082120Didn't see that one coming.
Rolled 8>>23082039With a half an hour there I thought you would have used those. How many do you usually want?
>>23082141You dummy, that brought us down to an 11.6 average.
You idiots. The only correct ship is a Correllian Engineering HWK-290.
>>23082154> (18+4+9+19+8)/5 = 12 > 10.>Roll successful.>I use the first five rolls. I also round up to the highest number for averages.You eye up the floating rod. It’s at perfect attack distance, just high enough for your blade to hit it an angle, and far away enough so that a step forward will carry the blade’s center directly through the rod.You activate the lightsaber—this one is a bright sky blue—and draw it back over your head in the standard Djem So beginning stance. You step. You swing. The lightsaber descends in a beautiful arc of azure energy, trailing a stream of ionized air like an opened fan, slicing straight down through the middle of the rod. The contained plasma leaves in its wake the molten metal of the rod, glowing white-hot and cleaved into perfect halves. You immediately take note of several imperfections in your strike. Your blade’s hilt was brought too close to the target, so you lost some torque, and you left too much weight on your front foot and nearly overbalanced. You also swung your arms out a little too far, which may have caused the first error. But you still performed a damned good demonstration, if you do say so yourself.“Not bad,” Plo Koon says after a moment of consideration. “It looks like you have a good command of sai tok technique.”Sai tok is an ancient term for bisection—usually horizontally through the torso, but also vertically down the centerline of the body. >Lightsaber combat checks: minimum success value reduced by 1 from 10 to 9.>That’s it for tonight. Next time will be next Saturday.
>>23082235Ok, okay. Neat.
>>23082235this makes me wonder, shouldn't Jedi wear breather masks to prevent inhaling products of all the slashing?Anyway, thank you, OP, was a great run!
>>23082253Keep in mind that 10 is (was) only the default success minimum. If you guys bring Roa into a situation over her head, success minimums will increase correspondingly, just decreased by 1 from this time.>>23082259No problem. Thanks for playing.
