Hello all. You might not remember what the Holonet Wiki is, but I was one of the anons involved with the new SW wiki our board was working on a while back. For those of you who need a quick summary, a while back our wiki hit a rather major snag. I found a way to import a large amount of "Legends" wookieepedia content over to our wiki and thus save ourselves from a lot of work, the problem is that the import process could only be done by the owners of our wiki's domain. So I left for quite a spell in hopes of contacting Shoutwiki's staff (our domain owners) and finding some way to import the content. That feels like ages ago now…

So the end result is, I have some bad news gents. I've been trying to contact the staff of Shoutwiki and to find some way to get around the restrictions but have had no luck. Either Shoutwiki doesn't give a shit or its a dying domain. However, during my period of absence as I did my best to collect content from all Legends articles for importing (as well as any pre-2011 content) I've found several alternative wikis. I've long since given up hope on trying to make any progress with Shoutwiki, so to finally get this over with, I was hoping we could continue discussion on all wiki progress here and vote on what to do and which domain to move to.

You all right, givin? It's been radio silence for a couple of days now.

File: 66e1fc2436ac1ff⋯.png (241.6 KB, 512x512, 1:1, No_Fun.png)



Monday 9pm GMT there will be a Movie Battles II server up for the /SW/ community. Chat, fight, capture objectives and duel on the "Best Star Wars game of all time!".

Movie Battles 2 is a free mod of the game; "Jedi knight: Jedi Academy". It can be downloaded at www.moviebattles.org, it requires a copy of Jedi Academy (JA) to play. You can use the steam version or GOG version of JA. It runs around £7 on steam, but if you can't afford that or simply don't want to give Disney your money the pirated GOG version works just as well (or so I'm told).

Monday 9pm MovieBattles II; /SW/'s server. See you there.

Password will be revealed in this thread 1 hour before startup.

All right you slimos, let's do this. There are guides floating around for TCW and star wars vidya, but nothing concrete about the novels or other EU material besides GIB DARTH PLAGUEIS. Let's fix that, shall we? Pics related are a blank template to fill out, and my take on it, respectively. I'm still a bit of a newfag to the EU so my contribution is limited.

In addition to what I've started up here such a guide could probably benefit from a bit of color-coding, with colors denoting:

>must read, buy it or you're a fag

>okay but only good if you like the characters/other books in the series

>not great but honorable mention (could be an asterisk instead of a color-change)

>very…different and highly skubtastic Yuuzhan Vong I'm looking at you.

If you have something to contribute or disagree with one of the existing judgments feel free to bring it up, and post the edited template.

Wait, I was right? That's fucking rad!



Why does Kevin J. Anderson get so much hate again? I'm not doubting that you guys are wrong, I just haven't had much exposure to his works. I thought the Jedi Academy trilogy was alright, but nothing special. What has he done to draw such ire on the level of Karen Traviss or R. A. Salvatore?



>What has he done to draw such ire on the level of Karen Traviss or R. A. Salvatore?

The Sun Crusher.



Splinter of the mind's eye should be in Green. The fight at the end and his duel with one of the creatures of the world alone should warrant it being on the approved list.

The Han Solo adventures (not the 3 newer novels like paradise snare, the old ones), at least of what I've read (2/3) I would consider good. Others may not though due to the more adventurous tone that some of the other EU books lack, as well as the absence of the empire. They take place in Authority Sector controlled space (what is, or at least was when Han Adventures were written, its own entity), and as such the villains are different. So, I guess purple for them. I have enjoyed them thus far, others might not

It seems like Filloni wars just messed with the EU for the sake of it.



tales from jabbas palace and tales of the bounty hunters are great too



How would Talz even survive on a snow planet? They can't eat meat, they have butterfly mouths, they can just drink.



I cant remember all that got written before the Thrawn trilogy, but I know Splinter of the Mind's eye came out before any others since it was a back up plan for a cheap sequel in cans IV failed at the box office

The han solo adventures also came out in this same period between IV and V



There were also the WEG RPG sourcebooks, which fleshed out what we already knew of the universe, and were the origin for many species names and quite a few other things.

What a complete waste of time. Pics 1, 3, and 5 of the third post are the only ones that even makes sense as edits one might make. The rest are all just "paste a dog into a Star Wars image" with no rhyme or reason.

How someone could look at that dog, see the Star Wars suggestion, and instead of thinking "Jedi robe and hood", think of Leia's message? The answer is that they're normalfags, and "Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi" is half of everything they remember from ANH.

I meant his tactic of projecting an image of Ben over his face causing her to pause for a fraction of a second makes sense, kind of.



The Vong were good because it gave us Imps and Rebels teaming up to kill zeno scum. The Vong represented Muslims or perhaps niggers, either way, the Vong stories were based and redpilled.



>based and redpilled

I don't like muslims, but I really don't care about politics in SW. The Vong were obnoxious twats but I honestly wouldn't have minded their presence if they had been BTFO without causing too much damage, but they still fucked up the galaxy and ruined some of the best planets in it for future story tellers and game designers. The only cool planet left was Dac but the One Sith fucked that up quickly. But at least they were cool and fit within the setting.



You know, I'm starting to think we need a thread for the Yuuzhan Vong War.

Snoke was already jammed into that role by suddenly wearing gold.



>What's not to say that some industrious autist will jump at the chance to save star wars for the sake of love?

Imagine being this naive. Disney will never let this go. Even if they do nothing for 20 years and remake things then, they will not let SW go. The best case scenario is death, because it is already irreversibly spiritually dead.

>If Star Wars gets buried into the Disney vault, you'd literally cry about it.

I cried for it when Disney abandoned the EU, because that was when I new I would not see good official Star Wars content ever again.

>'there will be fucking protests.'

This is ridiculous.

>If Star Wars gets buried into the Disney vault, you'd literally cry about it. However, there are literally millions (if not billions) of people who love Star Wars, if Star Wars would ever get thrown into the Disney vault forever, they will know. Even if Disney tries to hush it up and keep everything quiet, leaks will happen, the media will want to cash in on those outrage clicks, and 'there will be fucking protests.'

>Also keep in mind that rich people can have hobbies too. What's not to say that some industrious autist will jump at the chance to save star wars for the sake of love?

This genuinely pathetic. Star Wars can't be saved because George Lucas is done with it. Star Wars ended when he sold it. Fan fiction will always exist, but none of it will really be worthwhile. People will just have to make new science fiction and fantasy stuff.

The fact that you're desperate for more content is sad, you're like an obese freak who can't stop eating food, despite it having already nourished you. When Lucas, the original artists, decided he was done, Star Wars ended. Just because the brand still exists and keeps on getting slapped on shit, doesn't mean the art is still being made.

Let me ask you this, does anyone care about any of the Sherlock Holmes stories not written by Arthur Conan Doyle? There are thousands of them because he's in the public domain, and they sell a little, but no one really cares because Sherlock Holmes belonged to Doyle. Star Wars ended, it had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Stop being a braindead consumer and learn to be satisfied.



>Let me ask you this, does anyone care about any of the Sherlock Holmes stories not written by Arthur Conan Doyle? There are thousands of them because he's in the public domain, and they sell a little, but no one really cares because Sherlock Holmes belonged to Doyle.

People will read them, I don't see your point. Sherlock Holmes is like Robin Hood or a Greek Myth or a historical figure; people can do their interpretations of it and they do all the time. But people don't go into a Sherlock Holmes fan club and say "JUST WATCH MATLOCK FATSO".

>Star Wars ended, it had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Stop being a braindead consumer and learn to be satisfied.

I can't speak for anybody else, but I was quite happy with the old model of EU content, games, and the movies being complete. Why can't we go back to that, without all the kikery? I like the template universe and there's lots of room to explore and write things.



I agree with your main point ("Star Wars can't be saved"), but everything else you said seems wrong.

>When Lucas, the original artists, decided he was done, Star Wars ended.

No, it kept going after RotS. There were good videogames and books still produced after. Of course, this will be blocked by Disney now because of their tight grip on copywrite, but that's because of Disney, not George; it could've continued okay under other owners.

>does anyone care about any of the Sherlock Holmes stories not written by Arthur Conan Doyle?

There was a fairly popular Sherlock Holmes TV show recently, and the Robert Downey Jr Movies (which are pretty good). I haven't played them but I hear some of the games are good as well.

What are your favourite SW games?

What are your least favourite SW games?

If you could make any game in the SW universe without any restrictions, what kind of game would you make?

And why will the VR game suck so much?

True, but I wonder what Shadows of the Sith would entail. George already said he was making a sequel trilogy, so how would a video game VII and a movie VII work? Unless the game title we're seeing is actually an adaptation of the film. I guess this means the sith were gonna come back for George's sequel films.



Jedi Outlaw and Jedi Hunter sound like they'd have the most potential as a game. I imagine it'd work pretty well as a pair of games wherein you play as a Jedi between episodes 3 and 4like that game EA announced, except with a less retarded title or as some sort of AWOL Jedi, and a game where you hunt the last of the Jedi to extinction as a bounty hunter or imperial/sith agent. There's no need to set either during the movies eras, since you could conceivably make it work in everything from the Legacy Era to the Pious Dea Crusades.


Perhaps it was something similar to the Lost Tribe of the Sith storyline? If not, there were plenty of resurgent Sith/Dark Jedi groups that showed up after the Battle of Endor- even if they never were quite as powerful again.

I'd have been curious to see how they would've dealt with it, then.


1313 was the Boba Fett one, wasn't it?



Yeah. I think it was going to be a big reveal with Boba donning the iconic helmet after entering 1313. Supposedly characters he partnered up with in Clone Wars would be in it.

Can we talk about how good Rogue One is? I think that it holds up better than any of the other Disney-era Star Wars movies thus far. Sure, it probably does not work for someone without much familiarity with the wider franchise, but it really does complement the viewing experience of A New Hope.

>>29699 (wasted dubs)



the shill meme of Luke being a Gary Stu has been thoroughly debunked. he faces numerous setbacks and obstacles on his journey to greatness.

also I have to correct you, Luke does get initial training in the Force in ANH, ie the scene with the training droid on board the Millennium Falcon. even then, he makes mistakes before he gets the hang of it.


File: 742b551776fd996⋯.png (338.01 KB, 400x514, 200:257, ClipboardImage.png)


I definitely prefer the modesty of the original ending. The way I see it, it built the early EU by showing that Endor was just one battle and that we don't know what's happening to the rest of the empire. The special edition ending frames the Death Star II's destruction as being common knowledge as far as Coruscant and sparks spontaneous planet-wide uprisings against the empire. This is what the Disney canon is based off where the empire capitulates within months and is followed by 40 years of jack shit and [insert television spinoff here] because there's nothing left for the rebels to do.

On principle I have to reject any story-based special edition changes because all EU material pre-1997 was written from the same understanding of the movies and the events that happen within them. I don't believe the Galactic Civil War would have been written as hard-fought after Endor if the uprisings and celebrations across the galaxy had been in Return of the Jedi back in 1983. There might not have been an EU at all because everyone would have assumed the rebels had already freed the galaxy in one blow like Disney's writers do now.



His use of the force at the end of ANH always seemed like he barley got the missiles into the exhaust port and it built on the fact that Luke was a very good shot given that he used to shoot at womp rats in his T-16 which were not much bigger than 2 meters. The force only helped him win and it was a long shot at that hence the tension of that scene.

The marysue in the nu-series never has even a situation were she might possibility fail or has the force enhance a skill she already has slightly rather she is completely skilled at everything and all powerful.



>Coruscant and sparks spontaneous planet-wide uprisings against the empire.

In the EU not reboot verse, order was swiftly restored on planets like Coruscant though.. Just because the emperor was dead didn't mean it was over.
