Welcome to /sw/
The board for discussing all things Star Wars!
This thread serves as a simple introduction.
• Here are some essentials to getting started on the board and integrating into the community.
1: Check out the board's CyTube channel for streams and live chats (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars
2: We are currently working on starting our own alternative to Wookieepedia. Once its up, a link to it will be posted here.
3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share.
4: Learn some freaking Huttese, you scocha kungs.
5: Fair warning. Diehard Disneyfags and Namefags can and will be mocked by the locals.
6: Always check the catalog.
7: Credits are accepted, but truguts are preferred.
• The rules here are simple, we live by and follow the rules and laws of Hutt Space. Which means we barely follow any real rules here unless its illegal or stupid. Just don't post CP, don't samefag, don't spam, don't do anything that will attract glowniggers, and keep shit on topic as I don't like banning or deleting shit, unless its necessary, like spam, cp, brownpill shit and raids. Off-topic shit will not be deleted either, but it will be anchored (unless its scifi-related and in relation to us), so just make a Meta general for that kind of shit.
May the Force be with you, troopers.

High Republic Dumpsterfire
So Disney announced this the other day. Its the identity of their "super secret" Project Luminous, which is actually called "The High Republic Era". Its nothing but a few books and comics made by the gayest bunch you ever did see and the majority are all terrible and woke writers. In essence its a crappier Old Republic knockoff that's only set 200 years before the prequels. Its basically a retelling of the Mandalorian Wars but it replaces the Mandalorians with "Space Vikings". The Vong are also supposedly going to be a part of this as are sith gods and the "Sith Empire".
But the real kicker is that shortly after this moronic announcement, Bob Iger officially stepped down as CEO of Disney which has many people talking about this High Republic shit being the first sign of the fall of Disney's Star Wars and possibly Disney as a whole which is still in massive debt caused by a lot of their recent acquisitions, the most notable being 20th Century Fox (which they have since renamed 20th Century).
So is this the end? Has SW finally taken its first step to truly being put out of its misery and being put to rest?

Pirated, of course. Yidsney can fuck right off. Don't ever let it touch your money.
That said, what do you guys think of it so far? So far it feels like it's supposed to be a space western. The whole thing about the MC taking care of baby Yoda is going over my head but the combat seems pretty good, and they're actually portraying assassin droids and Imperial walkers as the death machines they're meant to be. The main theme is also pretty great, and doesn't rely on John Williams for once.

Separatist Canon: Writefaggotry Thread
Welcome to the Sep Canon writefaggotry thread, here is where writers can go to contribute to the continuation to the old Expanded Universe. You can write, share, and check continuity in this thread.
>What is Separatist Canon?
Separatist Canon is an attempt by anons of this board to continue the Expanded Universe that was unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view) aborted by (((Disney))). As the torch has been handed to us as fans, we must abide by the the rules that the likes of Zahn, Luceno, Stover, and Reeves used to keep Star Wars alive during it's lull between the OT and PT. Thus we must establish ground rules so that we can hold ourselves to our predecessor's standards of quality.
>Rule 1 - Don't contradict G-canon.
The Saga is the base of this entire enterprise, and it is ultimately at the heart of everything we do.
>Rule 2 - Work together to connect our stories together and keep our facts straight.
The main strength of the Expanded Universe was its inter-connectivity and the collaboration behind many of it's writers to not just write stories but expand on the vision of a galaxy far, far away that George Lucas envisioned for us on the silver screen. Obscure references, loose ends, and the occasional retcon make our stories better and close to what was published before the Dark Times.
>Rule 3 - No Disneyshit allowed.
The very idea behind Separatist Canon is that we reject everything Disney has done to Star Wars, and what other people like Dave Filoni have done to the timeline. Therefore TCW (the 2008 series), all of it's tie-in material, and anything Disney has published since the buyout (yes this includes Tarkin and Marvel 108).

Goodbye Star Wars.
It is the end of an era, the final bastion of pre-disney wars comes to an end today, and on may 4th of all days, which is appropriate i suppose. Say what you want about the Clone Wars but it was the final remnant of the old Star Wars, the bridge between the old and new, and with it's conclusion comes the conclusion of the old good ways. It was a little disappointing to be honest. The ending gave off this vibe of hopelessness and sorrow and like something good has come to an end. Which is fitting because it is true, both in their universe and in real life, so that's it, that is the end of the old Star Wars. It's gone now forever…
I don't mean to sound like a dramatic soyboy faggot over a fictional universe, but yeah that is the end of pre-disney Star Wars. whether you were one of the first to see it in the theaters those 42 years ago or you grew up with the prequels It has been a wild ride and an honour anons. I know i am going to sound like a fucking cringelord for what i am about to say but i thought it would be the only proper way to sign off and say goodbye to a franchise that filled our childhoods with joy.

Why the TIE Fighter is a good ship
Guaranteed Rebelboo Butthurt incoming
Let me tell you fags why this ship is actually probably one of the best Starfighters of it's generation.
For starters lots of retards tend to try and compare it to the X-Wing in an unfair comparison chart neglecting the fact that the ship is actually 20 years older than the X-Wing so they refuse to compare it to it's real competition like the R-41, Z-95 or even Y-Wing which for all purposes it absolutely dominates over.
Most Rebel Scum tend to cite it's lack of shields. Most Rebel Scum before they got ships like the X-Wing ended up dead. For starters while it does lack shields, the TIE Fighter is known for taking a glancing hit or two but it's armor protection is not what it should be reliant on. The TIE Fighter for all purposes is a pair of powerful cannons strapped to a highly efficient engine that not only gives it considerable speed but lets it turn on a dime. A TIE Fighter in fact will out-turn an X-Wing in a dogfight and for the Rebel Scum that are unfortunate enough to not have the privilege of flying a toy payed for by spoilt senator daughters misusing daddy's trust fund money, well we have found none left alive to comment.
Next what the uneducated masses wrongly criticise is the lack of life support and hyperdrive. They think this limits the ship's range but forget it gives it it's greatest advantage. Not only does it help reduce cost for a ship that is already remarkably cheap and easy to maintain, repair and replace, but it also helps to significantly reduce the energy signature of the craft. Many a deluded fool has found them suddenly descended upon by the Empire with virtually no warning and in nearly all cases the TIE Fighter has been granted the luxury of firing the first shot in an engagement, an advantage that cannot be understated.
About the only thing you can truly criticise this piece of perfection for is that is now deserving a true worthy replacement to carry on it's legacy.
Now with this information at hand, care to remind everyone why the TIE Fighter is bad again, you Rebel Scum!

A while ago someone asked if anyone was willing to write lore about Moff Panaka and the resistance and ultimate defeat of the Empire in the Chommell sector. I do have some loose ideas on the topic, maybe they get too grimdark sometimes and I need a stronger basis in existing lore.
From what we know he was appointed Moff shortly after the Senate was dissolved and ruled until only a few years after the battle of Endor. As a pessimist his style of military command should be cautious, and as the inventor of a successful decoy system he should know how to use deception against the enemy. He was loyal to the Emperor not just as his superior but also as his friend, and an orthodox follower of the New Order's principles.
The story begins with his investiture as Moff. Palpatine himself is in Naboo and after the cerimonies they meet at Panaka's estates, where the Emperor receives a statue as a gift and promises to generously give whatever is necessary to keep the Chommell sector in order.
At this point Panaka had spent prolonged periods far from his homeworld, which had changed considerably together with Imperial remodeling of the whole sector. Though Naboo superficially looked the same, it now housed a much greater number of off-worlders: Imperial bureaucrats, traders and a collection of university students, scientists and engineers: the planet was now a center of technological development for the military-industrial complex. Its technologies were used in a production chain made up of two other systems in the sector, which would also receive some lore. As there are several systems with next to no information they can be any of the other known systems in Chomell. Let's say they are Karlinus and Chommel Minor.
Karlinus was long a backwater. Its idyllic, undeveloped plains were inhabited by a near-Human species organized into tribal fiefdoms which collectively rejected almost all external contact except for the trade in the eponymous tea. As order weakened into the late post-Ruusan period pirates and illegal miners began to visit the planet. A pro-opening faction among the fiefs negotiated with other systems in the sector to open up the planet for trade and limited settlement. Extensive mining operations were set up and eventually monopolized by the Trade Federation, which became hegemonic but ruled negligently and left the fiefdoms in place. Colonists slowly poured in. The indigenous population boomed and slowly modernized. The system was under CIS control in the Clone Wars but the Republic seized it with little resistance. Later a governor was installed and the planet fell into more enlightened and orderly rule with much investment into infrastructure and civil services. New indigenous elites with studies abroad arose, but found they could not rise further into the closed ranks of the off-world mining elites. They then became a hot spot of anti-Imperial sentiment and formed their own rebel groups against the Governor, off-worlders and traditional chiefs.
This planet is a provider of raw materials.
Chommell Minor is a densely populated urban world, not yet an ecumenopolis as it has vast oceans and wastelands but its cities already reach high into the skies. Though dystopian and decadent it has in the past two decades housed new manufacturing capacity. I haven't settled on which rifts in society produce conflict. There'd be criminal groups holding the lower levels which the Imperial governor desperately allies with when losing, off-worlders involved with manufacturing siding with Imperial rule, powerful local elites with maybe some of them being behind rebel activity and frontlines being more vertical than horizontal.
With abundant support, the Chommell sector receives a large and modern fleet including a Praetor II, which serves as a flagship. The Rebellion launches hit-and-run attacks with small craft against military and economic infrastructure across the sector. Panaka's admiralty divides hyperlanes and systems into control zones (like quadrillage in the Algerian War), each patrolled by a garrison, and with its material superiority suppresses the insurgency down to a weak and tolerable level. Minor insurgencies pop up within the planets and in Naboo Gungan radicals harass the areas bordering their swamplands. As Boss Nass makes empty promises of holding them back they are kept in line with a heavy but soft-handed Imperial Army presence. Moff Panaka takes a lax attitude to civil life in Naboo, correctly assessing that though the traditional aristocrats are fond of a Republican style of rule they are too conformist and invested in the status quo to defy his authority. Within Human-populated Naboo there is no insurgency of note
The Battle of Endor is a game-changer. Panaka is devastated by Palpatine's death, organizes a day of mourning and prepares a speech. However he failed to realize that in his free atmosphere radicalism had swept through the off-worlders involved in technology on Naboo. Instead of mourning the Emperor they flock to the streets of Theed to celebrate. Panaka hurries away in a Lambda shuttle. The Royal Security Forces, among them Gregar Typho's son as a high-ranking officer in Theed, fold and don't resist the demonstrations. An apparent political vacuum develops as protests spread and Gungans enter the cities. The traditional landowning families, believing the regime had already changed, join the off-worlders.
Panaka orders Storm Commandos to forcefully retrieve the Queen from the Royal Palace before she can make a stand and she is kept in house arrest on the Lake Country. In a change of heart, he reflects on Tarkin's theories and chooses to crush the so far mostly peaceful uprising with an iron fist. The Imperial Army lays siege to Theed and moves in with AT-STs and other walkers for maximum psychological effect. Gunships hover ominously above and TIE Bombers drop leaflets. Some demonstrators, Gungans and Security Forces enter the Royal Palace, where surrender after a firefight with stormtroopers. After a few days Theed is pacified with hundreds dead, thousands under arrest and noticeable damage to valuable buildings. Panaka stands at night in a corridor of the empty Royal Palace, lit only through a broken window with its glass strewn through the floor, and ponders.
Prominent noblemen are tried and banished or even executed. Gregar Typho's son publicly humiliates himself begging for forgiveness and invoking his father's name, but Panaka shows himself ice-cold and says no word. He is also executed.
The Gungans also have to be dealt with. Panaka brings Boss Nass to a chemical weapons facility and tells him he wants to speak in frank and clear terms. He shows him intelligence reports that the Gungan radicals have official backing and threatens to attack the entire Gungan civilization if he does not stop all attacks. Nass feels insulted but has to accept. Panaka offers him a valuable work of art as a gift but Nass refuses.
The swift and public annihilation of the protest movement successfully instills fear and Theed remains peaceful for the rest of his rule. However, it also builds resentment against him and the Panaka family among Naboo's aristocrats. During the siege of Theed some minor looting was done by the Imperial Army and though the artifacts were restored, the officers who allowed it to happen were too useful to remove; a handful of scapegoats were punished and the rest moved to other systems. A cover-up failed to hide everything and the incident worsened the reputation of Panaka, though he was not directly responsible.
As a good Imperial the Moff remains loyal to the new regime after Palpatine's death. However, Sate Pestage military reorganization strips away much of Chommell's best ships and legions, leaving it with an ordinary sector garrison -with the notable exception of its flagship. After sorting his homeworld Panaka travels to Imperial Center, where he fails to convince Pestage of his sector's special importance. Though he partially concedes his point he is also unimpressed by Pestage's plans for holding onto the Empire and has doubts about its future. On the way back his ship is dragged by tractor beam to a Victory-class owned by a warlord. Though he is set free after a short verbal confrontation and is surprised by how easy central authority is now defied and realizes he is facing a new kind of threat.
Stripped-down sector forces failed to keep the rebels at bay. Entire bases are lost to Rogue Squadron-style raids, the lowest levels of Chommell Minor and remotest mountains and swamplands of Karlinus fall to insurgents. At the same time, a powerful warlord state -probably the Eriadu Authority- expands towards the Chommell sector. Panaka refuses to recognize the authority of Sander Delvardus, who amasses a powerful invasion fleet on the recently conquered Quess sector. A direct attack from Enarc to Naboo is avoided as Naboo is too heavily fortified. His invasion is delayed by the lack of good hyperlanes and upon arrival Panaka orders his admiralty to cede ground and fight only on a fortified position. Meanwhile the rebels have established de facto control over realspace in Karlinus (but not on the planet's surface) after bringing larger Sullustan ships to bear. A battle finally happens in Chommell Minor within reach of the Golan stations in orbit. It is inconclusive, with moderate losses, mostly incurred by the Chommell fleet which retreated. The stations surrendered to Delvardus. With an Eriadu fleet above Chommell Minor the Moff sues for peace. He nominally recognizes Sander's authority and pledges to dismantle his damaged Praetor II and put a large part of his fleet to Eriadu command. He goes to great lengths to make this treaty public. A large chunk of the flagship is even seen towed to shipyards for dismantlement. But both terms were deceptions. The mangled Praetor was being repaired in a secret dock in a remote system, while Delvardus allowed the committed ships to remain in the Chommell sector for one more mission. The fleet gathered again and fell like a thunder over Karlinus. Immobilizer cruisers pinned the best and largest Rebel ships and ISDs tore them down one by one.
The rebel and warlord threats were gone, but the Moff was now in a much weaker position. With the Eriadu Authority's defeat he was free again but most of the ships sent were squandered and never returned, to say nothing of those taken away by Sate Pestage which were now dispersed all across the galaxy. Realizing he cannot hold on to the entire sector, he pulls back from places of lesser value, concentrating on key systems and the hyperlanes between them. For protection against hit-and-run attacks a convoy system is applied even for civilian transit. His enemies largely leave him alone in their march to the Core, leaving the Chommell and Quess sectors as Imperial pockets in the Mid Rim. The Quess sector's Moff, though in a much weaker position, quarreled with Panaka over the occasional raids the latter's forces maid into his territory. The two are now warlords in all but name, having to run everything by themselves.
Rebels continue to gain ground in Chommell Minor and Karlinus. A number of war crimes are made by both sides and together with the repression on Theed make Panaka the most reviled face for Empire-haters on the sector, where he becomes known as the "butcher of Theed".
This relative calm cannot last forever. The New Republic turns its attention back to the Mid Rim and now forms a large conventional fleet including several ISDs. It conquers the Quess sector with ease. A tattered war fleet including civilians and the families of anyone working for the Empire arrives at Naboo with stories of mass trials, executions and banishment to remote systems. The New Republic fleet gathers again in Enarc and attempts a frontal assault on Naboo. At this point Panaka brings out his secret, the restored Praetor II, and together with the planet's hypervelocity gun and orbital defense stations repels the attack with heavy losses on both sides. The two opposing fleets return to their dockyards and the New Republic can't launch large raids because of the Imperial fleet-in-being. Panaka gives up on holding all of space, reducing traffic on hyperlanes to the minimum necessary to keep the sector alive, fortifying the planets and even trying out small raids of his own.
At this point he is reading a classic of Grizzmallt literature about a man with divided loyalties to his people and to a conqueror which does sacrifices to the Dark Side to remain in power. He also reflects on what he did and feels some remorse but also determination to remain on a path he can no longer leave.
His fleet-in-being is questioned by a New Republic raid in full force. The Praetor is sent in reaction but retreats with its battle group once it receives some damage; it is simply too valuable to lose. Lusting for blood, the New Republic fleet uses even its capital ships to hunt down any traffic along the hyperlanes, which are almost fully shut down. One of the last convoys leaves Karlinus with both civilians and Army personnel. It is forced to dock at an asteroid base, which is then occupied by New Republic marines. The convoy commander arrange for the civilians to be freed and surrenders, but some of the officers do not accept this and fight their way back to the docking bay and escape. By a miracle their ship arrives badly damaged in Naboo. At this point the remaining Imperial strongholds in the sector are isolated from each other. Chommell Minor holds on but in Karlinus the local rebellion is almost triumphant. The New Republic deploys its own troops and takes over the planet, followed by reprisals against the local Imperials.
Panaka's fleet remains over Naboo but with trade strangulated his position weakens. The New Republic lets this continue for months and whittles him away with small actions. The final assault on Naboo finally comes. Imperial forces are by now mostly composed of old models, even Clone Wars surplus, aswell as wreckage from the Trade Federation and Royal Security Forces material. N1s painted in white with the Empire's emblem in black dogfight with A-Wings. The New Republic eventually wins a difficult victory and lands on the planet. A major city of great cultural value is placed under siege. An Imperial mechanized column moves through the Great Plains to relieve it but in a Highway of Death moment New Republic V-Wings and Y-Wings, unhindered by the now almost nonexistent Imperial air cover, reduce it to slag. The rag-tag recent conscripts, Imperial army veterans and stormtroopers holed up in the city bitterly resist for months. The New Republic triumphs over a pile of ruins, some of the most refined examples of Naboo architecture and ancient artistic treasures reduced to dust.
Another concentration of Imperial troops is encircled with Gungan swamplands as the only way out. Panaka risks himself and leaves his stronghold in Theed to negotiate with Boss Nass. He begs Nass to open an escape corridor through the swamps. Nass says he has no reason at all to provide any help, Panaka's defeat is imminent and the two will never have to negotiate again. Panaka admits he will lose whether or not Nass helps him and since this is the last time they have to make a deal and no deal can save him Nass might as well help him. He adds as a side note that the retreating Imperials won't be able to take their heavy equipment and the Gungans can take them if they want. Nass is unconvinced but says he accepts the proposal out of personal mercy.
Thousands of Imperial troops retreat to heavily fortified Theed, which bustles with Imperial military and civilian personnel from all over the galaxies and many of their families. They worry for their lives as the New Republic surrounds the city on all sides. It is clear Theed will also be reduced to rubble.
Pressured by his inner circle, Panaka decides on his final act. He delivers a speech to a small audience of Naboo and Imperials alike. After insisting on his love for his homeworld he argues that he always did what he thought was best for it, no matter how much he had to sacrifice for it. He does not apologize for anything nor ask forgiveness. It is up to the Naboo to judge him, and he does not demand or expect of them to love him. He also proclaims his undying loyalty to the Imperial Throne. The Empire is also his nation and the Imperials of all backgrounds gathered on Theed are also his people, they, who struggled and gave up so much for decades together to build the New Order, and who now share the same fear of destruction. He promises to save as much of his people, Naboo and Imperial, as he can to the very end of his life.
Immediately afterwards his surrender terms are revealed: after giving up all weapons but small arms the Imperials on Theed will be allowed to embark and take the hyperlanes towards Imperial space. With their evacuation the city is spared and falls without a shot. There is, however, an exception - Moff Panaka himself and a handful of his officers. They hand themselves as prisoners to the New Republic, with full knowledge that trials, humiliation and execution await them. In doing so Panaka sacrifices himself to save both the city of Theed and the Imperials there, many of whom he worked with for a long time.

Do you shitpost on 4chan? Do you go to reddit/twatter/fagbook/other normalfag sites?
Of course you fucking don't, none of us are big enough faggots to go to those and admit it here, this dead bunker is more than sufficient for our SW shitposting needs.
But I AM a total faggot & have been hanging out on 4/tv/ lately because most alts are hilariously faggot ridden shitholes run by ACF trannies & 4chan is ironically far less faggoty than that bullshit.
Anyway, the point. I've noticed something. LOT of fucking SW threads. Not even TROS threads, just every type of general SW thread you can think of, some even calling Yidsney out for bullshit, most of which the OP sits around & constantly bumps with some numbered images from some shitposting folder.
Being the totally lifeless faggot that I am hanging around 4/tv/ & such, I hang out in a lot of these threads. In one of them, I made a shitpost about Loli Ahsoka & how hot she was, and a funny fucking thing happened: the fucking OP bumping IMMEDIATELY STOPPED and the thread got real quiet before dying to archive.
It got me thinking. These threads are all a last ditch effort from Yidsney marketers to help out TROS's box office by getting us to fucking talk about ANYTHING SW related, in the hopes some of us would lose resolve & go give them ticket money. And pointing out & talking about how sexy their canon loli padawan character is was probably the sole subject that wouldn't help TROS's box office at all, without also "hurting" their image in their minds.
I mean we can call them out on their bullshit all day & if it leaches into the normiesphere they've got a thousand ways to deflect it back on misogynist racist incel trolls, like they have been for years.
But if the normiesphere starts jumping on the sexualization of a minor age character they didn't see as a problem, who actually kind of fit into their overall stronk womerns narrative...

Talented individuals from any area are being invited to perform video auditions for a number of roles, both males and females of any ethnicity. This new Star Wars trilogy is being created by Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed "Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi". Johnson is writer and director for this first film of the new Star Wars trilogy, with Ram Bergman serving as producer. Kevin Feige will serve as executive producer. This new trilogy will separate from the Skywalker saga and will explore new characters from an unexplored area of Star Wars lore.

I was just thinking about how sterile the sequel trilogy has been. It's like any form of romance or adult interaction has been removed or Disneyfied. Even the Finn/Rose "romance" in The Last Jedi felt forced and cringeworthy with an utter lack of chemistry. Look at Rey especially, she is played by an attractive actress inb4 xenomorph memes but we never really see her as a woman. Even on a desert planet, she is near fully covered, as if they were scared having Rey bare any skin would send the wrong message. She never flirts with any of her male cohorts despite being a young woman trapped on a barren shitheap for decades.
I know the inevitable response for anything like this is "but it's for kids!" or "misogyny!" but Leia's slave outfit or Padme's mid-riff and the romantic sub-plots of both trilogies didn't make those films any less family friendly or weaken it's female characters. It really just seems like Disney trying to sanitise the franchise to fit their "wholesome image". The most risque they've gone so far was Qira and Han in Solo, but for a grimy underworld story it still feels very tame and safe, though Emilia Clarke admittedly did look very elegant.
I would just chalk this up to me being a cumbrain but there's a wealth of normalfags "shipping" characters, especially "Reylo". People want romance and some eye candy in their adventure movies, to the point that they will just make their own if it's not being offered. What do you guys think? Am I on to something or am I being ridiculous?

So it looks like the plot for IX was leaked on multiple sites and a lot of it was confirmed in recent trailers and a Burger King ad. There's currently a meltdown going on at Plebbit. There's a whole lot of negative reactions and social media insanity going on because of IX. I also just found out that even if the movie doesn't flop, Disney won't be able to recover their losses from this quarter which are currently near the bottom line. Discuss? How fucked is Disney's abomination?

I saw a few episodes of That 70s Show where Eric becomes a Star Wars fanboy after seeing it in 1977.
One thing I found interesting was, when talking about Star Wars with his father, Eric refers to Darth Vader as a Sith Lord. Where might he have learned this term back in 1977? I don't recall the mainline movies ever using the term in the theatrical cuts, and the first time I ever heard it mentioned was in the Phantom Menace.
Did he read some expanded universe material? Was there any published Star Wars work in the 70s that mentioned the Sith? All the expanded universe material I know from back then mentions "Dark Jedi" but not the Sith. Was this just an oversight by the writers of That 70s Show?

As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown:
>The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan
>It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami
>I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year
>Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them
>Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls, and even rudimentary player models
>24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th
>On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after
>With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed.
>I disappear for about a month
>I return in October
>We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring.
>You are here.
The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you.

The Dark Times
I've been thinking about the era between RoTS and ANH. While the very beginning and the very end of this era has been portrayed by Dark Times and The Force Unleashed respectively, I find the 20 years between the Clone Wars and the Rebellion to be virgin territory. For two decades the Empire ruled nearly uncontested, it's early years spent in campaigns to put down CIS remnants and pirates. The Republic Senate transitioned into a new Imperial Senate jockeying for relevance in this new system. I wish there had been a novel like Tarkin for the nu-canon that focused on the inner workings of the Empire during this period, as you could have had tons of internal conflicts between the Senate, the ISB, the Navy, hell the Imperial Army and focus on worldbuilding the Empire.
I also have an idea for a Rogue One style story in the old EU, centered around Operation Domino. This was the very first movement of the Rebel Alliance against the Empire, with them egging on multiple worlds to rebel against the Empire. The ISB dubbed these the Secession Worlds and crushed these rebellions. This was the brainchild of Mon Mothma and is why the Rebels operate the way they do in ANH, and having a Rebellion loses story being a tragedy would be unique compared to the legion of Rebellion victory stories in the EU. What do you guys think?
