>>43949611Your time at the Academy has proven to be quite an adventure so far, even if all of the adventuring has been this mysterious thing known as LEARNING, with a bit of fighting thrown in along the way to help with that process. During the time you spent with Renari in the library, you learned quite a bit about the man known as Revan, the woman Meetra Surik, and even a bit about the known history of the Sith... the religion, not so much the red people. Turns out they're kinda secretive and don't enjoy talking with Jedi too much, who woulda guessed.Still, the information you read about regarding the more inner workings of the empire is quite interesting. The names are different, but it seems as though the Jedi and Sith have a very similar heirarchy when it comes to their members, Padawan to Apprentice, Knight to Lord, Master to Darth, and Council to Council. You haven't exactly been able to find any information on an equivalent to Grand Master Shan, but it does sort of stand to reason that the Emperor himself could fill such a role.Turns out learning can actually be pretty fun, not that you would have ever gotten the chance to know as much while you were on Nar Shadda of course, though both Renari and Master Tikran have been rather insistent on you shoring up your admittedly rather faulty, and mostly self taught, education. Advanced mathematics is still a slight... issue, but you've taken to reading and most other things like a fish to water!>Zev, how have you spent most of your time this past week? You may select two.>Focus on more general education, you're doing good but could be doing better.>Lightsaber combat, it's been your strength so far, keep it up.>Reading and studying about Revan, Surik, and other famous Jedi.>Learning new force powers, you need to expand your arsenal.>Improving on what Force Abilities you already have.>MYSTERY BOX SELECTION>Write... in???

>>43949663>>Lightsaber combat, it's been your strength so far, keep it up.>>Learning new force powers, you need to expand your arsenal.Yoo, glad to catch a thread live.
>>43949663>Mystery Boxand>Improving on what force Abillities you have
>>43949663>Focus on more general education, you're doing good but could be doing better.We can focus on this for at least a little bit>MYSTERY BOX SELECTIONLike we would choose that
>>43949663>mystery boxI hope it's sexual training>force powersCome on, force penetration.
>>43949771Anon you can type "porn" on google and masturbate from time to time, you dont have to wait for this quest.
If whips, pikes, tonfas, spinny things of doom and crossguard lightsabers are a thing we gotta make our own kind of lightsaber>MYSTERY BOX SELECTIONAlways mystery box
>>43949663>>Lightsaber combat, it's been your strength so far, keep it up.That way we dont have to do shit we arnt good at, I mean, Whats the odds of any of that ending up useful anyway, right?
>>43949841I've never gotten the impression that Zev is anything else really, putting in effort seems antithetical to him now that he doesnt have to worry about survival
So who wants to do some dumb shit and experiment with the Dark Side?I doooooooo
>>43949871It was a trap!
>>43949871We got force vision now?
>>43949663>Lightsaber combat, it's been your strength so far, keep it up.gotta git gud don't feel as if we're a master yet>MYSTERY BOX SELECTIONbecause of temptation>Inb4 it's trash>mfw it's probably trash too prevent power creep
>>43949871Zev = Best JediI mean, how much more can the masters get annoyed by us?
>>43949871We Gray Jedi now? ;_;
>>43949663>the man known as Revanshit quest
>>43949871Fuck yeahI dont wanna be an edgey over the top asshole but honestly we are pretty much only ever gonna be a grey jedi in terms of alignment so we gotta dabble a little
>>43949871It sure sounds stupid enough for Zev."Huh, the masters say this is a nono...But mistress said I'm the best Jedi so I'm sure its ok, and what is she gonna do, spank me?"
>>43949945Why would we be a gray jedi? We have a heart of gold we stole off some dude from Nar Shadda.
>>43949871Depends, how do you plan on doing Dark Jedis? You're not going to make them wannabe Siths, are you?
>>43949871So long as we don't do stupid edgy powers then yeah I am down, the Dark Side has some useful ones, I would like to go Grey route and that's the one I am aiming for
>>43950009Gray Jedis are the definition of edgy. It's literally living life on the edge. Just commit to one morality and stick with it.
>>43950049Gray jedis by definition are just jedi who use darkside powers for purposes they believe as morally just. Or it's a jedi who no longer associates with the order for one reason or another.
>>43949984that's pretty much all they are anon, jedi who were like "yo fuk dis peaceful shit i'm goona kill myself some niggaz" like the guys we saw earlier, they start off believe they are right then go mad with power like the Siths, the only source of difference is they saw what they believe to be injustice by the Jedi when it's safety.Also for once i'm against gray Jedi, i'd rather have him become a proper Jedi and have an apprentice and center the it more around an average Jedi instead of some special snowflake Grey Jedi story who's like "lel i'm above gud and evulz and i'm doing stuff differently, i also wear a big IM A PROTAG sign on my face".Yeah fuck being a gray or dark Jedi, i want a proper Jedi quest for once where we don't fuck with established alignment that much.
>>43950049Only a Sith deals in absolutes, therefore the purest Jedi are Gray
>>43950070Don't we just need a blaster instead of dark side powers?
>>43950070Also known as Jedi that quickly get ousted from the order when the Dark Side corruption starts taking holdWhich always happensEspecially if we're an fucking padawan
>>43950096Hey Qui Gon was a grey jedi for a while. Obi Wan was considered a grey jedi too when he left the order for a little while.
>>43950086>Only a Sith deals in absolutes>the purest JediWE GOT A SITH IN HERE, ARREST HIM>>43950080Joruus C'Baoth was a pretty good example of a Dark Jedi.
>>43949611I love when I'm about to run my quest and you're up, gives me another Star Wars quest to read between updatesCheers! C'mon guys make him pure, grey jedi are very stagnant characters
>>43950121>WE GOT A SITH IN HERE, ARREST HIMAnd I would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling padawans!
>>43950049Well, not necessarily. A gray Jedi could simply view the force in a purely utilitarian way. The Sith often see the force as something which must be broken to the users will through exultation of the self.The Jedi often see the force as something which can be channeled through the user through release of the self. A gray Jedi may simply view the force as an amoral pool of energy which is channeled not as an expression of their personal philosophy but just as a battery to fuel whatever they need it for.
>>43950168Yeah, I wanna be light-sided too, but we have to touch this stove first.
>>43950096Yea, or, atleast I believe, he gets locked up in the academy and gets a rotating set of teachers until he learns the "right way". Just look at Rena, she isnt dark enough to corrupt other students and not dangerous enough to throw out. So they keep her locked up (basically) hoping she will just "git gud"
>>43950121>Joruus C'Baoth>want to overthrow the empire and assume direct control>use force lightning >"I serve no Emperor. My power is for myself alone." he's Sith emperor 2 electric boogaloo + more MAD UNLIMITED POWER also he fail miserably.Actually he follow the Sith philosophy more rigorously than the Sith but he doesn't call himself a Sith.
>>43950229Also a crazy fucking clone of the Jedi Master Jorus C'Baoth.
Sorry for the delay here fellows, on the phone with family.Been an accident
>>43950189That's the way I see it for him.Consider our character, a street rat, growing up that way means never giving up any advantage possible but he's obviously not evil. He just wants to live life to the fullest. Both the Jedi and the Sith are too restrictive for this.
>>43950264>Been an accidentHope it's nothing serious or long term
>>43950264Condolences in advance if it turns out to be serious.
>>43950281Cousin was in a car accident up state, just got the call from my other Cousin that it happened
>>43950189i think you've misunderstood their difference, it's not a difference in usage of the force but philosophy, Jedi are collectivist they have a sense of self-sacrifice and see the best for their group, The Sith are powerful individualists they only see their interest and how to promote them by usage of the Force.Ultimately as a carrot stick both side decided to say their philosophy was "THE WAY TO USE THE FORCE".A grey Jedi cannot be defined by his interpretation of the use of the Force because ultimately it's not what define Siths and Jedis. They're both utilitarians but they have different target to maximize utility.
>>43950274I agree, not to mention the obvious hostility to authority and collectivism.Zev does not fit the mold of a jedi, and I honestly believe the most interesting parts of this quest will be dealing with that.
>>43950332I hope he's alive and only superficially injured.
>>43950335Huh, I hadn't considered it. Pans out too because if one or the other were definitively superior they would have wiped the other out permanently, since their respective viewpoints (absolute individualism/absolute collectivism) are mutually exclusive and cannot coexist with one another. However, if not definitively utilitarian, how would one describe a gray Jedi? "Sith who isn't batshit crazy" or "Jedi who can conjure dark side lightning" seem too simplistic.
>>43950332Hope your cousin made it out alright Eail.
>>43950049What's so edgy about Qui-Gon Jinn? Dude was the most chill jedi ever.
>>43950409The best way to define it would be."Force sensitive (with training)"
So good news, dumbass is okay, just a little issue with his leg for the time being.Bad news, turns out the accident was his fault from what I'm hearingBACK TO QUESTING I GUESS, FUCK IF I KNOWIf I vanish again it's because I'm getting an update on his situation
>>43950498Well, at least he isn't badly hurt, although if the accident is his fault then his wallet will be needing some time in the hospital.
>>43950409they're Siths in denial, They're Jedis who broke absolute collectivism.A Grey Jedi is a failed Jedi/Sith.It's the "above good and evil" myth that following your own code of moral which is based on fuck all is better than following strict moral rules. They're failed hero and evil trying to redeem itself.The main characteristic is being original a Jedi who could not live up to the Jedi's code of conduct and giving up on it. it's like dropping out of med school to go practice new-age medicine because they didn't agree to Hippocrates's oath.
>>43950535blablabla let's fuck some bitches and get some chicken.
>>43950498Let's go Eail time to relax now
>>43950535A Grey Jedi/Sith is simply someone who disagrees with the ruling body they're meant to serve enough to separate from it.
>>43950409They're basically people who don't follow council guidelines but haven't fallen to the dark side. They pretty much walk the line between it. Like, the Imperial Knights are technically considered Grey Jedi. Jolee Bindo was a Grey Jedi, he was light sided but used both sides of the force without falling to the corruption of the dark side. Hell, I'd even say Luke's School was closer to Grey Jedi then traditional Jedi Teachings. Kyle Katarn used both sides and encouraged his students to think of the force as a tool.
>>43949871It's a little early in our career to be trusted playing with fire.
>>43950657Even babies touch hot things.
>>43950657indeed, which is why we are doing it. in character they have let us more or less run wild, this is a reasonable step
>>43950670Babies are dumb.
>>43950670there's a difference between touching hot stuff and jumping over a pit of lava while others have the high ground.
>>43950657I'm thinking it's just gonna be Renari teaching us force spark and we end up shocking her so we learn to not mess with that shitBut she actually liked getting shocked
>>43950682We are too. Embrace the baby
>>43950679>Hey kid, I got what you need.>Just a little Dark Side, first shot is free!
>>43950712Nope, we're jumping straight to Thought Bomb.
>>43950733how about Mind Tricks Jojo style?
>>43950725Cool! Free shits the best
>>43950712I'm comfortable with this level of fuckery. We're just not equipped to handle, "Craft a well of all the hatred we've felt during our short life and immerse ourselves within it," levels of experimentation.
>>43950764Right now we're the happiest camper ever I doubt we could even tap into our past disgrace to fuel anything serious enough.
>>43950764Yeah we're still a potential well of resentment, the Sith can use all the shit we lived on our planet and make us see how unfair the world is which would be dangerous as fuck.
>>43950795Who do we resent? Everything here has been awesome for us, and we've shown those bullies that picking on Renari isn't the way of a Jedi.
You've spent a good bit of your time following the advice of Master Tikran, spending quite a bit of time studying up on the history of the Republic, mathematics, reading, writing, all that good stuff. It turns out that a fair bit of the Jedi curriculum also covers things such as military tactics and command. Pretty useful stuff to know since you've heard that most Jedi actively participating in the war against the Empire are given officer positions in the Republic's military... never really thought of yourself as a military man, but hey, weirder things have happened, like becoming a Jedi!It takes a bit of time, but you're sure enough able to catch up to pretty much where you're supposed to be with regards to your education from a Jedi standpoint, there are still a few things that you need to work on a bit more. Not to say you've been neglecting your other training of course, your tutoring of the lightsaber under Master Tikran and at times Master Vesu continues on just as well.It's after a day of studying in the library together that you and Renari are talking a relaxing little walk along the lake that the two of you had your first real interaction. While not an entirely common action for the two of you, it's something that happens every now and then when the time feels right. Not everything has to be about something lewd or exciting after all, it's good to kick back and relax at times."Zev, you've been reading up on the Sith, along with people like Revan, right?" She asks as the two of you are taking a short break at the lakeside. "Yeah, it's pretty interesting reading about Revan and the others. Learning about how the Sith and the Jedi are two sides of the same credit chip is pretty amusing as well." You reply. "Why ask?">CONT
>>43950837"You've been doing really well with your training... y'know?" She says, digging her fingers into the grass as she looks out to the water. "I was thinking maybe, I could teach you something? Something that can keep you safe, if it comes down to it."She bites her lip, seemingly second guessing herself for only a moment before shaking her head."It's a dark side technique, but a simple one.">What is it?>We shouldn't be messing with the dark side>Teach me>Write in
>>43950859>What is it?>Teach me
>>43950859>Teach me>I trust you
>>43950859>We shouldn't be messing with the dark sideBuuuuuuuuut...>Teach me
>>43950859>What is it?
>>43950859>We shouldn't be messing with the dark side
>>43950859>What is it?If it's something cool we learn if it's something bordering psychopathic nope.avi
>>43950859>Teach me>"I mean, you know it, and you're a good kid."
>>43950859>What is it?i mean i'm flattered you care and all but..feth it>I trust you>Teach me
Remember that by succumbing to the Siths techniques you don't give yourself a grip on the Force,you give the Siths a grip on us.
>Teach Me>Where did you learn this?
Vote called and now writing
>>43950859>We shouldn't be messing with the dark sideWe in JEDI territory. Never use Sith/dark side moves in here.
>>43950965Next thing you know Zev will be injecting marijuanas, calling his superiors bantha poodoo, and refuting the word of God!
Reminder that Zev is only one letter away from ZenBe chill and the masters will forgive us.
>>43951048>INB4 we were targeted with a pseudo Sith agent who was tasked to see if we're potential going to go Sith>INB4 now that the Republic know we could they're going to execute us because we have a too high mediclorian count to fall into Siths hands.>They played us like a fiddleThe next thing you're going to say is "bullshit conspiracy theory"
>>43951120bullshit conspiracy theory
>>43951074>injecting marijuanas>implying space drugs don't exist>implying you can hear the word of god in Space>not worshiping the Force(tm)
"First off, what's the technique, and secondly, teach me." Is all you say in response to the girl's offer to teach you something you really have no business actually messing with."Wow, that simple?" She asks with a raised eyebrow as she looks up at you. "I sorta figured... with all the reading and stuff you've done, you might say no.""I trust ya Rena, you haven't done bad by me yet, I figure if you wanna teach me something, it's because it's worth learning, yeah?" You give a small shrug, before grinning and giving her a pat on the back "So let's get this potentially dangerous lesson going!"Adjusting herself so she's sitting on her knees facing towards you, Renari takes a deep breath and tries to look serious... though it's more adorable than anything else really. "So by this point you've no doubt heard about Force Lightning, right? The trademark Sith technique?" She asks you.You give a small nod in response."I can... do it, kind of, it's more like a Force Spark, than anything really big, but it's still pretty useful! I've tested it on a few of the beasts in the forests around the Academy, and it's... not really lethal, but it'll still do some damage and stun the target. I figured it could be your ace pazzak card if you ever need one."Wiggling herself a bit from side to side, the girl once more bites her lip as she looks up at you. "So, do you still want to learn it?">Yes>No>write in
>>43951244Try it on me first!
>its nothing big>just force lightening>just the darkest form of sith sorcery>nbd bro
>>43951244>I've tested it on a few of the beasts in the forests around the AcademyOMG REDFLAG REDFLAG EXECUTE ORDER GTFO.
>>43951244She's a cute girl, this couldn't possibly go wrong. Right?
>>43951244>Fuck No>it's... not really lethalthat's because you're weak as fuck Rena
>>43951244Nah.Really, why shoot lightning when we have a blaster?Plus we're next to a fucking jedi academy.
>>43951244>Yessummoning a magic tazer doesn't sound that evil
>>43951314i'm guessing if she's tried it here before, we can get away with it
>>43951314Yeah right we already have a blaster and Force lightning is countered by light saber like blasters SO WHY THE FUCK WOULD WE GO DARK SIDE.
>>43951285You, see>>43951296If you are going to tell the gf that you dont trust her just because of her evil space magic, you aint getting anything.
>>43951244>Yes>I said 'teach me'
>>43951356She's fucking going around the forest tazing animals, why the fuck do you want such a loony gf anon? Do you want to wake up without dick one day?
>>43951289That's how it all starts, torturing wildlife.
>>43951309So are they really blue? I thought that nipples were just darker in complexion.
>>43951392The academy is kinda boring, got to find something fun to do
>>43951394I know anon, I fucking know. Time we say byebye to the psycho-gf and grab the first shuttle to OUT OF HERE.
>>43951392Flesh Raiders aren't people Anon.
>>43951356>because my Gf is doing something i'm bound to accept he choices and her morality>literally the pussy pass to morality>being a Sith is ok if a girl tell you to do itYou have to be kidding me.
>>43951412Like getting your dick sliced off.
>>43951392>>43951419I'm not saying I want a battle of the crazy waifus.buuuuut.....
>>43951438Anon, you dont understand, there's no battle, it's ourselves getting murdered in our sleep because she thought it was funny.
>>43951244>Yes"I mean, it's jsut the force either way, right? it only really matters what we use it for"
Looking back to previous thread, I get the feeling that Zev really isn't Sith material.At least the way he uses Force and dirty tricks in fight is not exactly using his strong emotions to mobilize his strength, it's to distract the opponent and make him slip up. He's like a permanent test of Jedi serenity while keeping cool himself. He doesn't need Force to break his chains because he's already pretty liberated.With one exception of being a horndog. I kinda see this becoming his weakness - while usually his HYPER VIBROBLADE might make ladies melt with pleasure and desire, should he come across one that can resist his advances or at least keep her head while succumbing to them, he can end up with a very nasty surprise and I don't necessarily mean space syphilis.
>>43951428Mate, the guys like 15. That kind of logic actually applies.
>>43951454>implying the end justify the means that much>being that vulnerable to the dark side
Calling and counting
>tfw you just want to be deflecting laser blasts and energy attacks with your bare-handsCome on, Force lightning is weak as shit when you fight someone who can just absorb it and spit it back at you.But I guess getting your car started when it's having problems without using jumper cables is nice, too.
>>43951244>NoHoly shit if she's tazing animals for fun we might have to tell the mistress
I swer to god if you faggots make us turn sith because of this insane bitch I'm gonna shove the jedi code carved into a stone slab the size of a menhir up your assholes.
>>43951526>BeastsShe aint tazing squirrels m8
>>43951506>Come on, Force lightning is weak as shit when you fight someone who can just absorb it and spit it back at you.Most Jedi or Sith can't do that.
>people mad she shocks critters>neverminding they may be assaulting herWay to jump to conclusions, we don't have all the details. Come on, people, step it up.
>>43951526Snitches get stitches
>>43951547Oh yeah no, it's fine, she's not tazing squirrels she's just tazing wolves.EAIL STAHP
>>43951543Calm your tits, man. We're just experimenting a bit now during our college days.
>>43951506>But I guess getting your car started when it's having problems without using jumper cables is nice, too.don't forget a built in handshake buzzer.And cat repellent.>>43951547wait. Beasts?Eail, is the jedi Academy anywhere near a certain city of Yarnham?
guys, she's probably not torturing animals, she's probably literally just stunning BEASTS (shit that to us would be like a fucking jaguar or wolverine or Canadian goose) who are fucking with her. Is it violent? Yeah. Not serial killer uber mega edge sith though.
>>43951404Well, that's how human biology works. But these are magic space aliens with hollow horns that let them echolocate and only eat meat, so I'm gonna throw evolutionary science right out the window here and say whetever Eail told us
>>43951574>Eail, is the jedi Academy anywhere near a certain city of Yarnham?>Bloodborne jediI never realized I wanted that this badly
>>43951467Yeah, I see him more as a "the force is a tool" kind of person like Kyle K. and Corran. Dosen't matter how you use it, just what you're using it for. Of course, Dark Side abilities always skirt emotional boundaries so it'd be something to be careful about. I'm liking the whole idea of serene 'center of the storm' Jedi. Causing havoc around himself to his enemies while remaining cool and collected.
>>43951549Vader could deflect blaster shots. Yoda soaked Sideous' lightning. There are quite a few who could, they were all named, of course, but then again when have non-named character ever done anything in Star Wars?And the fact that you can stop lightning with a lightsaber, as well.
I don't want to miss anything but i have 2 cabbages to dice and fry which takes forever
>>43951594Force users would get massively fucked up in the head. See Clone Wars: Wild Space, where Obi-Wan is driven partially to madness by an old Sith Holocron. That wasn't even an eldritch abomination, it was just a non-sapient defense mechanism.
>>43951571We're listening to a girl that literally goes out of the way to experiment shit with living creatures, if that isnt full sith, then I dont know what is.
>>43951559>implying we're not the most promising Jedi in the whole academy>implying we're facing danger even we train>implying Sith gangs exist in the JEDI ACADEMY>implying everybody else won't be like "damn dude you banished the sith witch">implying we won't get mad bitches >implying we won't be the dopest student and the most Jock in the whole Academy>implying the only reason we allow her to stay after she said she use sith tricks is because potential of lewd.
>>43951622Bring the chopping board to the computer
>>43951601>Vader could deflect blaster shots.If you're thinking about Han Solo's shot in cloud city he did that with his robot hand, not with the force.
>>43951641Here's a solution
>>43951639Immoral, non-empathic, or psychopathic behavior is not necessarily Sith. Sith display these behaviors but that does not make the behaviors exclusively Sith traits, nor does using the Dark Side. All Sith are crazy Dark Side users, not all crazy Dark Side users are Sith.
>>43951584Oh yeah nothing wrong with that m8, next stop how much pressure with the force do we need to crush bones on a creature!I'm onto you Mengele
>>43951584Possibly. But she is out there, presumably after knowing that there are nasties out to eat her.And she still does it, so its either: Trying to vent by zapping things out the jungle or zapping things as she is avoiding the jedi.
GUYS HAVE YOU HEARD, SAMURAI JACK IS BACK WITH NEW EPISODES
>>43951678Oh that makes it better. She's not sith, she's just crazy!
>>43951684>how much pressure with the force do we need to crush bones on a creatureEnough, you need. Next question, please ask.
>>43951641I can't, pieces of cabbage gets everywhere and i don't feel like spending time cleaning up.if only this didn't take like 3 hours to cook
>>43951660>In addition, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were both able to block blaster bolts with their bare hands, a talent the latter displayed after his fall to the dark side of the Force when he absorbed Han Solo's blaster shots during their meeting on Cloud City. I mean, no, but okay.
>>43951698FUCK YE-wait, who's voicing Aku?
>>43951640No, I ment the fact that we are from Nar Shadaa's less then savour neightbourhoods. Odds are the idea of reporting someone to the authorities is distasteful at best simply because of how we have lived before coming to the temple.
>>43951702Well yes, because crazy is often unfocused, while being Sith is all about focusing your psychopathic tendencies on a single goal.
Sith?! More like... SHIT
>>43951640potential of lewd.good
"I said teach me, didn't I Rena? Don't worry about the semantics regarding Dark or Light or anything like that, it'll be a backup tool, right? No reason to worry about it." You say with a grin, giving the girl a pat on the shoulder than seems to relieve her quite a bit."Right!" She replies, sounding rather cheery. "So... I guess the best way to describe this sort of thing would be..." Rena trails off, evidently actually having to think about this rather than just knowing how to explain it. "You're unique Zev, you have fun in fights, your control of the Force is impressive, so for a technique like this you're already halfway there. To use the Dark side, at least, how Papa told me, you need to focus on your emotions, rather than keeping them bottled up like Jedi do."She taps her cheek a few times, still evidently thinking about how to phrase this. "He said that most Sith use their anger, or hatred of something to drive them to use the dark side, but it's not restricted to just those sorts of things. Lots of Sith have been fueled by something else, desire for power being the most common one, you just... have to find what works best for you I suppose." Finishing with her own little shrug."And for the technique itself?" You ask."Oh that's simple! You just need to channel your emotion and The Force towards your fingertips, will it to take form, it might take a few tries, but you should be able to do it no problem! Just find an emotion to focus on and try it.">What emotion will you utilize Zev?
>>43951640Also, we are the most promising fighters, definitely less promising as a jedi
>>43951660Vader's robot-parts weren't energy-proof, they were energy resistant.If he blocked it wholesale with just his machine-bits there would have been damage, distortions, or disfigurement of his normal not!leather glove, if not some superficial damage to his hand.
>>43951744apathy for rules and authorities?
>>43951744Can we use our several lack of critical thinking?
>>43951744Lust lightning plz
>>43951744Channel laziness or the emotion that makes you want to chill out
>>43951716>>43951720The shot in ESB literally explodes upon contact with his hand. That's a direct hit. The movies still trump the series as far as canon goes.
>>43951719Probably Greg Baldwin since he studied under him and replaced him in Avatar.
>>43951744channel our desire to know more
>>43951744Lust, obviously.The only thing Zev has more of than any living thing ever should.
>>43951744Amusement. I mean, Zev's not really a serious guy.
>>43951744>FunFun's an emotion right?
>>43951744>What emotion will you utilize Zev?LUST
>>43951772>Can we use our several lack of critical thinking?>use our several lack of critical thinking>our several lack>several
>>43951804Darth Eros is a pretty sweet title...
>>43951744>What emotion will you utilize Zev?Desire to inflict lulz.
>>43951744FUN FUN LIGHTNING although fun isn't an emotion so amusement, enjoyment, exhilaration, etc..
>>43951826Severe, you know what I meant you autistic fuck.
>>43951822you have a lightning emotion?
>>43951744Kek EmotionUse the force to win and bring kek to fuel the force anf win and bring kek to fuel the force and ...
>>43951846Exhilaration works well because it sorta includes lust, enjoyment, determination, and all that other stuff.
>>43951816Using lust is being a Sith, lust is a production of envy. We will fall into the dark side if we use lust as an emotion to empower the Force.
>>43951849Of course I know what you meant, doesn't mean you fucked up any less.
>>43951844>Channeling memes into force lightning.
>>43951849Good, good. Feel the anger, use it!
>>43951744Self Contr-pffffthahahahaawild joy
>>43951744>>What emotion will you utilize Zev?Swag?
>>43951869>OHBUOY SOMEONE MADE A TYPO ON THE INTERNET BETTER CORRECT HIM TO SHOW MY SUPERIORITY I SURE SHOWED HIM! BUHAHAHAHAHAGet out.
>>43951804>>43951816Full speed ahead to sexual deviancy!
>>43951868We fall into the dark side if we use any emotion. It's just that some emotions lead you there faster than others.
>>43951744>LUSTSALT MIND ARISES WHEN THE JEDI NEED DYIN.THOUGHT I WAS GONNA FUCKING MISS THIS
>>43951744amusement, happyness with our time with best girl, etc.
>>43951804>>43951816>>43951841That might work for someone who's a sadist, who derives pleasure from watching other beings experiencing pain or discomfort, because conjuring Dark Side lightning requires a great exertion of intent, you must commit to summoning it up, which means you have to have a clear understanding of what you want to do to the individual you cast the lightning at. Using lust would be fine, but it seems that the caster would have to derive pleasure from the torment of their target for it to actually work.
>Answer generally seems to be going FULL ANDERSON>BECAUSE ITS FUCKING FUNHellsing Abridged WHEN?
>>43951866This is a good one. It's broad and doesn't shoehorn us into lewd, but can be used as such if we want.
>>43951898>implyingCome into my kitchen, I need more salt in my cooking.
>>43951744>>What emotion will you utilize Zev?Happy happy! Joy joy!Positive emotions people, lust is not positive.
>>43951967>UMADBRO?XDDDDYou're getting worse by the minute.
>>43951976lust can totally be positive
>>43951898>buoyAnon, no one is floating here. But with the levels of salt you are producing we may start to have that problem. Calm down.
Feels a little ooc imo

>>43951993Yeah bubby, I'm mad as hell you corrected me on the internet, sure got me riled up! Also >correcting buoy. Do you really think I cannot tell the difference between buoy and boy? Even entry level english is good enough to know how to spell boy. Keep autisming.
>>43952067Not even that guy, sorry to say. And I was making a joke. Now I'm actually worried for your health, calm down before you have an aneurysm or something.
>>43951777His hands were robotic, anon. Git gud at fact checking.
>>43952105>still getting angryYour paper-thin facade of being dismissive falls apart quickly when you continue to reply and express your anger.
>>43952067Don't give yourself an ulcer Anon. There is no emotion, there is peace.
>>43952137Yeah, I'm so mad right now, you wouldnt even believe how mad I am. I smashed 3 keyboards, called my mom to come home, punched her twice and made pauses to answer you.
>weak force lightning is worth being possibly kicked out of the academy yeah good choice guys
>>43952149We need to go deeper Anon.
>>43952131That's my point exactly. In the movie the shot just hits his hand, no force powers involved.
>>43952147But anon, how else would I spend time between updates? Isnt the essence of 4chan to call people out on them autisming over little details and then get into a fake argument were both parties dont get anything productive of it?
>>43952160>Implying we'll get kicked out of the academy. People have gone full Dark Side and been allowed back into the Jedi after some force rehab.
>>43952190OMFG STOP ANSWERING ME I'M GONNA BREAK MY SHIFT KEY IF I HAVE TO KEEP HOLDING IT DOWN
>>43952208>not using caps lock
>>43952192B-but Anon, arguing over the internet is a path to the Dark Side!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFkAAvDkj9k
>>43952225>Using caps lock to rage typeWow what a noob.
>>43952225Anon no, you're making him stronger
>>43952189https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHH6YVHGh90He uses the Force.Also note that in the artwork showing blaster bolts being used as fuel they still "explode"
>>43952200DURING WAR TIMESthe republic was desperate as fuck when they allowed corrupted Jedis into their ranks
>>43951962SERVE THE FORCE WITH FEAR AND REJOICE WITH TREMBLING
>>43952233>Arguing over the internet is a path anywhere.Anon pls.
>>43952160Zev doesn't really seem like the type to use the most painful force power possible either. It's a torture method.
>>43952254>Non-canon artwork proves my pointTry again.
>>43952338This is a stunning method. It's pretty much what was sued to knock out Leia on the Corellian Corvette. We shouldn't use it on any pregnant ladies though.
After more distractions we're writing.Probably going to keep this a short session
>>43952375Well...what can you say.Zev is already a stunning guy
>>43952341While cannon stuff should obviously be taken more seriously, if we just completely disregard everything that isn't cannon, there really won't be much left to work with Anon, since only the most recent Star Wars movies, books, cartoons, and the OT+PT are considered cannon. It isn't much of a stretch to imagine that a force user could use the force to channel energy from a blaster bolt or other energy attacks into Lightning.
>>43952391whaaaaat, but you're running early, tell your cousin that's he a dickbag
>>43952443Seconding. Seems IC for Eail and might make the story progress.
>>43952459>Eail's life is a quest we keep rolling terribly in>"Aw fuck, a 1! There goes our hand..."
>>43952341Well then let's look at everything ever in the movies.Everything a blaster strikes is either damaged, scorched, or destroyed, it scratches, burns or explodes everything, if it can't damage it, the energy still burns off anything on the surface leaving the black ash looking scorches.You'll note that Vader's glove is -entirely- undamaged and unblemished. If he were just blocking it, it would not explode into sparks on a flexible material like that, it would have to be diffused or absorbed by the material. Or let's say it's a cortosis weave fabric, it would still leave a scorch pattern as the dust and other particles are incinerated that are caught where the blast strikes as they are not "immune" to energy like that.There is no sign that he was blasted at all, which is impossible because that is just not how physics works. So since there is no explanation for that, it is reasonable to determine that he used the Force to assist him, also indicated that the only places he was being shot at were his hands, instead of somewhere vulnerable, like his head, and the fact that he immediately uses the Force to pull the blaster even though he is being shot.Don't tell me Solo wouldn't aim for a killshot right away, and he had time to aim since Vader didn't take the gun immediately upon Solo drawing.Come on, man. Use common sense.
>>43952443>>43952459Seriously. Besides, this seems like railroading "hey remember that super close character that was never mentioned before? Well now you have to drop everything to go see them"Might drop Eail quest at this rate
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>43952485Rolling for Eail's lotto ticket.
Normal sith lightning makes recipient writhe and scream in agony.Zev's is going to make them moan and drool with pleasure
>>43952513Perfect for female Sith.
>>43952504I gotta agree. This was a totally bs asspull. Like we didnt even know of eail's cousin until today and suddenly it makes us drop our quest. How are we gonna get that writing skill and our readers up to snuff with all these random events? Goddamit.
>>43952513>lightning that stimulates only the pleasure center of the brainThat would still royally fuck someone up, though.
>>43952506>Eail Quest>An anon rolls for your luck in a lottery>Fail the rollClose the Browser?>Yes>No>Cry
>>43952513But that's not how Sith Lightning works, it universally causes the target unimaginable suffering. The caster might feel pleasure from inflicting the lightning on someone, but for the recipient it would still be extremely painful, for them.
>>43952532>>43952504Remember that time we rolled a 1 trying to seduce that girl? Goddamit that was awkward, I didnt even know we had to roll a bladder check afterwards.
>>43952555>>43952535all the shit posting and forced memes he spews out at times in Real life. That'd fucking suck.
>>43952535>Well, at least there isn't an angry chihuahua at a keyboard here like there is in Kato's ques->Oh wait, he came as soon as we brought it up

>>43952493>You'll note that Vader's glove is -entirely- undamaged and unblemished. Are you literally blind? You can clearly see smoke coming from Vader's right hand as if it was scorched.
>>43952595>Wow we cant even get out, talk about railroading man.
I'm honestly sorry about this guys but this was just a terrible day and I can't do this right now.Things go from bad to worse as usual, and now we're back to me being homeless in about a week.I'll try to get shit sorted if that's the case but it's not looking good.Calling the 'quest' for the day

>>43952614The glove itself is undamaged, smoke doesn't mean that the glove is harmed, the smoke is caused by the bolt suddenly stopping and the energy being released and fucking up the air.The glove is unchanged, you can see that it was unaffected, even if the environment is not.

>>43952700>The glove itself is undamagedHard to say, since we do not get a clear look at it. The smoke CAN be caused by the bolt suddenly stopping and the energy being released and fucking up the air, or it could just as well be from HITTING the glove and being stopped by that, therefore the smoke coming FROM the golve.>you can see that it was unaffectedIt was without a doubt mostly unaffected because it was built to take this sort of damage and still function.

>>43952822It's far more likely he used the Force, as there are canonical powers that would do exactly what he did.Also because his hands aren't made of the same stuff his armor is, the gloves and machinery are just normal things, but his helmet and body armor are made to withstand stuff like lightsaber assault and blaster fire.They're just normal gloves. You can tell that much because Luke slices his hand off with a single stroke, while his armor is made so that won't happen. It's not like it's mental gymnastics.
>>43952736>Tfw between jobs, socially outcast, sick, and have abysmal grades.I know how it feels man, but if it's any condolence, in spite of all that terrible shit, you made this thread and it made other people happy.

>>43952631bummer. Sorry I caught this thread late while it's still live, but looks like it's in it's death throes and at the same time I've got my own share of issues.However, that does not mean my faith in you pulling through wavers. Get your family issues sorted out. Mend your relationships, find a new place where you can support yourself and call home. STAY DETERMINED EAIL.
>>43952736Well shit OPGet better.We have all faith in you.
Yo Eail, your mom might be shit to you but that just means you gotta prove her wrong man. Go and do what really fulfills you, write books, feed starving kids, make movies, or fix cars or become an electrician or do whatever. You're a human being and that makes you worth something. And anything that's worth anything can be loved man. Maybe your mom doesn't see it, but a lot of other people do, just from those small glimpses they get of you.
>>43954152I get really worked up about this type of stuff.
