  1. Is there a list of species stats and bonuses/debuffs somewhere? Or are those not allowed as per rules?
  2. Exactly. I did my graduate work on premodern folkloric texts, and they work this way across cultures. The things we would demand of prestige television and contemporary literary fiction (and apparently science fiction, which I don't read) are not emphasized in the sort of texts that ultimately form the basis of things like Star Wars. You're bringing the wrong expectations to the table. If you want nuanced character development and background rooted in sound science, you will not find it here (or in classical Japanese urban legends for that matter), and you should not expect to.
  3. I get organic vibes from both of those photos, for some reason. I think 'honeycomb' when I see the first one, and 'mushroom cap' about the ceiling on the second one. Neat.
  4. The late seventies and eighties loved mythologizing the fifties. American Graffiti, Grease, the extreme macho masculinity that came into fashion during the Reagan years. Lots of influence in music, too.
  5. Thanks! You've got a neat thing going; I"m interested to see what you come up with.
  6. On the subject of droids, I've always liked that sassy little Toto (sp?) guy from the Clone Wars. Are there stats for his model anywhere? He's little, too.
  7. I also think Twi'leks are human-looking enough not to freak out potentially prudish audience members (and ratings people?) in this situation, yet alien enough to remind those same people that this is Star Wars.
  8. I like reading a lot of the GMG sites. I missed this one, though. Thanks!
  9. Wow, that homestead's got some Star Wars/Wuthering Heights crossover vibes.
  10. I bottle them. I know there's a market but I can't stop drinking them all myself. Almost no calories, great taste!
