    Faction Asset Reference

    Modified CR-90's Coruante and Promise and the Carrack class frigate Makashi were lost over Coruscant during the Sith/Mandalorian attack. Construction has started on a Nebula class Star Destroyer over Felucia. Completion time: March 9, 2019.

    Has Anyone Ever Had Bed Bugs?

    I have fortunately never had such a creature attack me. I have accidentally slept in a pile of ants before (out taking a nap in the woods). That was a lot of fun.

    SOLO

    I definitely agree with all of your points, though I would also add that we definitely didn't need any of the political messaging that were very un-subtly put in.

    Which Continent is Your Least Favorite?

    I am deeply offended by the presence of Antarctica. Seriously, why does that continent need so much of our fresh water? I mean, it has almost no population (penguins don't count in my book) and no agriculture. Despite that fact, that continent has frozen up a disproportionate amount of the world's fresh water. So offensive.

    Dispatching Your Enemies

    I wouldn't use a tomahawk, I would use my Viking ax.

    When did the site become JDerp?

    Hey man, how are things going?

    Changes to Character Creation Rules

    I agree with Tim on this: special exemptions by the mods (or anyone) allows for favoritism and potential abuse from "insider trading" type stuff. Then again, I would also like to expand a gradual elimination of other powers, abilities, gear, and tech that already exist that are overpowered, but that is a whole new can of worms and I don't hold out much hope in that.

    May the Force be with you, Steve.

    Steve was a solid roleplayer who, back in the day, helped serve as a master to Adenna and as a frequent, hilarious addition to the site and roleplaying. He was instrumental in reviving this place which breathed in new life and brightened so many of our lives through the renewed connections and friendships we share now. I also remember his corny jokes and quirky humor in the Firesides we had and will miss that in the future. Let us all remember him on this site and never let his memory fade.

    The Ruling Request Thread

    If a mod could rule on Kashyyyk, I do not think anyone else is posting for or against the incap shot.

    The list at the start is out of date in that there should be a Sith/Black Sun Golan I recorded over Kashyyyk. Nal Hutta is also listed as Black Sun when it was conquered by the Empire. Kashyyyk is not even on the list.

    Faction Asset Reference

    Ahh, I checked and didn't see the newer ships, and also saw no "edited by" beneath the topic like most posts get when actually edited, so I thought it was default original.

    Faction Asset Reference

    A suggestion, and please direct me to where if it is already done, but is there a central location where all ships, AP points, and locations are kept updated constantly so people don't have to sort through every post here?

    Killing Killshots

    I do like Amidala's point about planets not suddenly becoming loyal populations. My understanding of Nar Shadda isn't that it is completely "good" and law abiding, but rather, that official corruption has been banned and now must hide or be concealed. No longer are criminals able to operate in the open like they had and therefore must become more like the rest of civilized planets and places where it is concealed and underground. It also empowered the population who had nowhere to go to now have a place and way to report crime instead of simply living with it or enduring it. Yes, crime exists, but the major organized crime rings were shattered and scattered. With Onderon, I do believe the Sith have shown restraint. They specifically mentioned keeping things intact and running as they were. The population likely isn't loyal to the Sith (loyalty takes time), but they aren't in open revolt because of the Sith's reputation of brutality. Commoners would see that things aren't drastically changing, so they wouldn't likely feel it was necessary to rise up and risk terrible retaliation since the status quo is mostly intact. Had the Sith marched in and started rounding up mass numbers of slaves or destroying and pillaging entire cities, doubtless, it would be expected the people would rise up in opposition. Since that didn't happen, the population wouldn't likely fight to the death. In this instance, I look more at occupied territories in WWII with France's occupation being far less open revolt because of both the puppet Vichy government (in this case, Onderon's intact monarchy) and the fact that the Nazis were generally less brutal toward them than, say, Poland or occupied Soviet territories where fighting was far more desperate and the population far less willing to go along with their occupiers. Personal opinion, though, is that should an invading force show a chance to kick out the Sith, the population would (at the least) not flock to defend the Sith and just might openly revolt or actively assist the GA liberators. That would go simply to logic considering they were recently liberated. Nar Shadda would, on the other hand, likely have the general population support the Empire if the Hutts or Black Sun attempted to liberate it as it made their lives demonstrably better. Now, there would be plenty of violence from the surviving criminal elements, but the overall population would logically defend the Empire. That shouldn't always hold true, though. Should the GA ever invade Nubia (my favorite little hole in the Galaxy), the population would likely be split with a majority supporting the GA and a minority the Empire. That is because, while it wasn't conquered through warfare, it definitely was a GA supporting planet before its takeover. The population would still hold at least passive loyalty to the GA, though those numbers would be swinging toward the Empire as time went on.

    Killing Killshots

    I personally LOVE this concept. I know it would be rule intensive, but this is war and sometimes, we need penalties for people acting like, well, the old Sith and Galactic Empire. Riots, loss in infrastructure, and a long time in rebuilding should be factors. I know we really don't do a planet by planet resource gain/loss, but there should be some sorts of penalties for slagging a city, and I mean more than just a post or two of rebuilding (which would take years or decades). There should be some advantages to either converting the population to joining you or making sure you are strategic and not just blowing everything up. Taking a shiny new planet can be great, but if you just destroy it all in the conquest, you really aren't left with much that is of use. Yea, you get the planet and you deny its resources to your enemy, but you aren't gaining those same resources and might actually end up shooting yourself in the foot with the PR nightmare, especially if you recently conquered a bunch of formerly hostile planets.
