There was a whole bit in Dragons Revisited about how a yellow dragon corpse was found, and they thought they had found a new species, but after conferring with other scholars and dragons, it was revealed to be an evil gold dragon's corpse. His scales had tarnished from a burnished gold to a dirty yellow.

The Yellow Dragon

Amateur scholars of draconic lore are quick to point out that
as there are blue and green dragons, and mixing blue and
yellow pigment creates green, there must be yellow dragons,
forebears of the green dragonkind. Though there are no
known chromatic dragons that were actually yellow, there is
one famous metallic who helped perpetuate the myth.
With each appearance, the fallen gold dragon Kwislingyr’s
scales lost more luster until—upon the discovery of his
corpse—they were reduced to a sickly yellowish hue. His
pallid skin and the subsequent discovery of his emaciated
corpse led to wild speculations of the arrival of a new species
of yellow dragon. Draconic scholars and representatives of
the Aleirt bloodline quickly hushed those rumors when they
confirmed that the so-called “yellow dragon” was actually the
fallen gold, Kwislingyr. Despite their refutations, however,
rumors of yellow dragon sightings still infrequently crop up
all across Avistan, and even more so in Garund.

Sidious was a Sith.
He recruited Maul, Tyrannus and Vader. What else were they supposed to be?

That was the behind the scenes narrative reason, to foreshadow/parallel Vader's half man, half machine nature. In universe, though, no one had an idea Anakin would need them so it doesn't make much sense.

Truth...even though never brought up, Palpatine was obsessed with outliving his shell. He could have very easily been an option B being studied for himself as well, and Anakin just needed it more, sooner.

But, speculative at best.

I thought the deal with Grievous was that his bionics and cybernetics were the test bed for the tech that would keep Anakin alive.

Balance to the force...

People assume this means a balanced number of force users, but maybe it's wiping the slate clean. no jedi philosophy, No Sith philosophy. The Force just is. Either extreme of no passion or all passion is not the correct path. Maybe the correct path is to use the force as needed, understand the connections, and don't use it to be an a**%!~$.

There is an interesting theory on the interwebs about Snoke being the grand inquisitor from Rebels...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I read toppling spell when one of my players picked the feat.
My first thought was "well, now they don't need trip focused martials anymore..."

I think any spell that replicates something a non-caster usually does should still have to use the same stats that the other class would have to use. Most of the caster solutions substitute CL or prime casting stat in place of BAB or STR/DEX to accomplish things.
It takes nothing for a player to make a trip focused caster, other than to take this one metamagic feat, then that seems a bit out of whack, when it takes feats, appropriate ability scores, and sometimes class abilities to get the same level of competence for a non-caster, at the cost of other combat options.

I may rule that when spells do this, they have to use their actual CMB/CMD, not a modified one.

Exceptions for spells like Transformation obviously.

The Jedi are extinct, their fire has

...and the Emperor. And Yoda.

Did Tarkin really not have a good grasp on what the Force is?

Obi-Wan Kenobi! What makes you think
so?

VADER
A tremor in the Force. The last time
I felt it was in the presence of my
old master.

TARKIN
Surely he must be dead by now.

VADER
Don't underestimate the power of the
Force.

So Obi Wan was expected to be dead by 70-ish. That puts Vader around 60-ish? Assuming Obi Wan was around 20 in APM, and Anakin was 9 or 10 when they found him.

How old was Tarkin? Why would he assume a force user of a similar age or possibly younger would be dead? Did he think Vader was going to kick the bucket in 10 years?

It's annoying to be sure, but then again, that's Lucas.

What was never in a movie?

The Tarkin/Vader relationship, and why Vader cut him so much slack.

Even though it was in 2 tv series, it was not in ANH, so my point kinda stands, but I get that it's no different than expanding on a concept later in a sequel or other media, in this case a tv show.

The most expensive and advanced fighter at Yavin was Lord Vader's personal TIE Advanced. It had shields and a hyperdrive, and was able to survive impact with another fighter and the trench wall, before allowing Lord Vader to escape the system after the rebels destroyed the Death Star.

He did say "production" fighter. I think Vader's was a prototype.

Point of order...

The cheapest space fighter in use at Yavin was the TIE. The X-Wing was the most expensive and advanced production star fighter at in that engagement.

I recalled that being the case as well.

Probably also a good reason. I'm not the one having the WHY problem, though.

Yes, but he wasn't in on the decision to send her after Luke.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

WHY

Spoiler:
was Luke trusted to fly a billion credit starfighter on an all or nothing mission? On Obi Wan's word? Because he saved Leia? No one there had seen him fly anything, so only his own estimation of his piloting skill could have been given. WHY was that enough?

WHY was Rey trusted to find Luke? On Han Solo's word or Chewbacca's? Because she helped save the droid that had the map? She did actually fly the Millenium Falcon, though...


So, I guess that's one up for Rey?

With Luke, there was a lot of cases where he failed. He had to earn it. It cost him his hand, and he ran the risk of becoming the very thing he opposed on multiple occasions. He also spent years, making hard choices, and sometimes the wrong ones to get where he was. That's what we don't see with Rey. At all. Instead, and gender is 100% irrelevant here, just to nip that crap in the butt up front. Rey, instead, seems mostly to have all the rewards just handed to her. She doesn't work at or fail. She out performs basically everyone else, often at their own specialty, but without any plausible reason that we can see or is even suggested may exist. There is some fan speculation, but it's not really supported at all in the movie as we are presented it, so to me, at least it comes off more like an attempted excuse, and one that they are almost now required to make a fact for later, weither it was ever their intention or not.
Yeah, Luke had struggles... over three movies, particularly the 2nd and 3rd in which the story continued to develop after his big Death Star-destroying hero turn of the 1st movie. We've only seen Rey for one movie. Kind of unfair to hold her to the same standard without giving her 2 more movies to tell the story, isn't it?

Pretty much my entire point. Thank you.

To me, this is a akin to demanding to know Darth Vader's entire backstory because he force choked a guy on the Death Star.

Omg, they didn't reveal everything in one movie! GASP

Seriously, is it so bad if they leave part of the mystery of Rey to the other movies?

Spoiler:
Snoke looked a bit tore up. Scars and gouges out of his head and ears. The way he reacted to Luke's name...I wonder if they've had a dust up or two, Snoke and Luke, and Snoke didn't fare well for the exchange...
it seemed his fear of Skywalker was more than a general fear of him resurrecting the Jedi.
