    STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Discussion Thread!

    One of the nice things about the sequel era is, due to the New Republic maintaining a smaller fleet, and most planets handling their own defense, is it is possible that we may see more of a species’ own designs ship wise (and trooper). The rebellion used all the same ships, but a rodian or twi’lek ship may look different - we MAY get more new designs for the era going forward.

    The Mandalorian [Star Wars TV series]

    It seems there may be a chance that the Mandalorian is none other than Willrow Hood.. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo2ecqJhuRj/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=embed_loading_state_script&ig_mid=W8Ix2gAAAAH7w-QilETNDCafxMpg

    Could the Rules and FAQ be added to the X-Wing App?

    What is the point? You still wouldn't be able to look at it offline..

    There is also the possibility, with Kaz’s damaged t-85, that he couldn't even fire them linked. While we are at it, we assume that the t-85 is a better craft. But it is designed for a heavily demilitarized government, as well as being more a jack of all trades type ship. It may not just be a straight improvement of the T-70

    Film stories that might adapt well to the Star Wars Universe

    Rather than rebel troops, perhaps some Jedi who escaped order 66? There are still a few I'm sure, and they would offer a bit more threat, plus lightsaber battles. Plus, with the force, Vader would want to not fight a group necessarily all at once. But even with rebels, it can work if written so perhaps he can only get one or two at a time. Perhaps it is a rebel or better yet partisan offshoot that disable and kill the crew of a star destroyer. We know in canon the rebels never captured one. Vader picking off the rebels that did this, and the size of the ship means it's too large to have them all in one place. The writing of the script has to be done well, but all the elements are there. The single minded determination and systematic slaughter of the characters, thematically works. I don't see it as Vader playing with the rebels, but more only having the opportuniry to eliminate one or two at a time.

    To many older fans, yes, Vader has been seen lots. But I think he is more menacing and single minded. Seeing Bossk, or any if the bounty hunters, on the Clone Wars, they are more of an up front, suprise you in an alley, level threat. I would love to see Bossk or another Trandoshon move around like they do in clone wars, but in an actual film, but I don't think a horror theme fits them. Vader can easily pull a rebel into the shadows while he claws at the deck playing, wheras any if the bounty hunters are more likely to just shoot you.

    Film stories that might adapt well to the Star Wars Universe

    What I would love to see is a horror movie, akin to Alien, but the creature is Darth Vader. Seeing a bunch of rebel troops stuck on a ship, trying to formulate plans to defeat Vader could be a lot of fun. Sound wise alone, you have Vader’s breathing echoing in a claustrophobic environment. The sudden snap-hiss of a lightsaber turning on. These sound cues can be put to great effect. It would provide a different view of vader, that of a monster that he is, requires no dialog on his part, and amplifies the Rogue One scene, but reminiscent of the casual 80’s slasher flick as well.

    Anyone playing SW: Galaxy of Heroes app?

    Yes, one of the worst. The gameplay was a joke, you HAD to make a character that was good at combat, mainly because it used the old wizards of the coast rpg d20 system that was very combat centric - so if you made a very talkative character, you were playing the game wrong, as most encounters devolved into combat anyway. Not to mention the old Murder-Hobo loot system. I managed to figure out the plot early on, so there were very little surprises in the game. The game took so many original trilogy ideas and just renamed them or changed them slightly; we had Not Bacta™️, not The Millenium Falcon™️, not TIE Fighters™️, not Stormtroopers™️, etc. The overall design idea seemed to be original Star Wars but with serial numbers filed off and spray painted. Visually the combat was jarring with characters hitting each other over the head (physical contact with a lightsaber) that was just shrugged off. Everything ever made, from your underwear to your armour and weapons was made of cortisis. Now much of this was due to the animations of the day, as well as the above lacklustre game system (wotc), but it was so ridiculous looking that It drew me out of the game. While I'm happy you (and others enjoyed it), I can't think if a single thing that made me look back fondly on it.

    To the Revan content, all I can say is.. YAWN. I care not for any kotor related content, as kotor is easily one of the worst games I have played. As to Galaxy of Heroes, was my son not such a star wars fan, I would have stopped playing long ago. I find it very hard to upgrade any unit (i refuse to spend meager game budget on this game, and thus won't have any of the hard to get characters.

    Alphabet Squadron (new SW novel)

    I'll offer the counterpoint that this title explains exactly what the book is about. While I don't want it used in character, it is very evocative to me.

    I'm a little confused.. what is a Star Wars plotline? Considering Star Wars has always been, at its base, taken the idea of the classicheroes journey’. What would make it more Star Wars?

    The Mandalorian [Star Wars TV series]

    I respectfully disagree. It is okay to try to theorize based on an image - really the only one we have - what we shouldn't do is get petulant when our theory proves false. While I have my theories, based not only on this image but other influences, if they are wrong, it is no big deal. I can accept that.
