As it happens, we may be losing our Wizard player -- just as he was learning how to do this (PBP), he had to take off on a month-long trip, during part of which he'll have limited internet access. (Yes, that is still possible in this day and age.)

Let's keep playing while I contact one of the backup players.

DM you had some exceptionally good Way of the Wicked players.

Would any of them be available?

Also, if the person coming in is interested, I would be willing to trade the Wizard with the Mesmerist I in turn was given. The Class is definitely intriguing but fear I may not be doing the class justice.

Your NIECE was involved??

Your family is strong in the ways of star wars?!?

I'm very proud of her, she told me some six+ months ago she had a surprise for me.

She sent me the link to the company site a few days ago which I neglected to look at until she called to ask if I didn't like the work, which of course made me rush to see what she was taking about.

With tear in my eye and jaw dropped I told her I loved her team's work and that I was so very proud of her and that I'm sure they are a shoe in for the advertsing awards in Asia next year.

Before she got off the phone she reminded me she still has all the Star Wars LEGO's I sent a decade and a half ago. (Yep, more tears for me.)

Then I promptly posted this version of the ad on everywhere I post.

I am also so very pleased that my niece knows which (Dark) Side are the real good guys.

(And I'm jealous because The Philippines gets to premiere Rogue One 12 hours ahead of New York.)

I've seen those theories [chuckle].

Not as compelling as Major General (Chief) Bast, Chief of Operations, surviving because you actually SEE him in the Star Wars Holiday Special.

He was the staff officer who warned Grand Moff Tarkin there was a danger to him and that suggests they move the Grand Moff to safety, and was quickly rebuffed.

Maybe in the last moments he took his own advice and got the hell out of Dodge.

I'm curious, how many FaWtL members, or close friends live in or are close enough to the New York City area?

I need my Star Wars gaming fix.

If I were to do a post Holiday party and start a mini Star Wars West End Games campaign or a short Fantasy Flight Imperial Assault campaign, would we have enough players, 5 - 6, to pull this off AFTER the Holidays ?

Ghost ship spotted .

Very cool if true.

There is a big discussion about this in the Fantasy Flight boards.

The Rebels series fans there are ... rabid.

While it could be any VCX-100 light freighter, for the Rogue One film makers to go out of their way to add that particular ship type in the movie means they are indeed giving acknowledgement to the events of the Rebels series and giving something for die hard fans to squee about.

So I am very inclined to say this is indeed the Ghost, with maybe it's call sign being said in the background as part of the chatter as the ships come in.

Next to the VCX-100 image above is one of the Hammerhead Cruisers from the original Knights of the Old Republic video game that we also see in Rebels.

Fun fact, I did not name Grand Moff Tarkin "Wilhuff," but I added a 2nd "f" to the name and I was the Wookipedia administrator that made it official and eventually Star Wars.com recognized it as Canon.

I checked, trust me I checked. I very meticulously searched in the script, in the original novel, or any from of media and source material from 1977 on wards.

The final version of Grand Moff Tarkin was never officially given a first name.

But I loved the name some other mega fanboy gave to him (circa 2002), and while I have always been envious of how I never got to name him myself, I helped get that Canon ball rolling.

Hello James,

Ready for the Holidays?

Not just on Golarion, but the game multiverse, of the 7 Archon Stewards of Heaven, who has the most to least number of Paladins, Holy Orders and Militant Crusading Knights?

Could you rank who is the most to least powerful, of Ragathiel, Sandalphon, Jegudiel, Andoletta, Uriel, Melak Taus, Salaphiel, in personal might as well as influence? Similar to the Runelords you have done before.

Is there a Solar that watches over Golarion's Sun?

Just read through Catalyst the Rogue One prequel novel. Not essential reading but will shed some light to the back story of the upcoming movie.

Some things I picked up from the novel (some very minor spoilers).

Spoilered for length

Spoiler:

The actual construction of the Death Star started as a top secret Old Republic Project, not as a Separtist, as events from Attack of the Clones may have led us to believe.

Count Dooku brought the plans for the Death Star to Darth Sidious, he in turn, as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, used this to instill fear of the Separtists building a weapon, and the Republic needed to build one of their own first.

Supreme Chancellor Palpatine created the Strategic Advisory Cell to take charge of the Death Star Project, all of whom signed the Official Secrets Act, that would ensure no one, not even the Jedi, were made aware of the project.

The Death Star actually began construction less than a year after the events of Attack of the Clones.

The first part of the Death Star to be completed was the prime meridian.

Lieutenant Commander Orson Krennic was formerly a member of the Core of Engineers of the Old Republic. Krennic never held any love for Grand Moff Tarkin, and was both envious and covetous of the Grand Moff's position in The Empire.

For his part, Grand Moff Tarkin always wanted direct operational and political control of the Death Star, but while it was being built, was content in Krennic taking the blame for the projects numerous delays.

The Old Republic had protected planets known as Legacy Worlds, worlds that considered important environmentally, historically or politically vital to the Galaxy and the Republic. Alderaan was one of the oldest of these worlds.

Then Empire ravaged many of these worlds for resources to fuel there ever growing military.

Kyber Crystals were impossible to synthsize in part because they are partially organic in nature (The Living Force).

Galen Erso (Jyn's father) was researching Kyber Crystals so that he could develop cheap and sustainable power for developing Republic worlds.

In secret, Galen was given access to the largest Kyber Crystal he had ever seen or heard about. Galen was a pacifist and believed his research was for energy enrichment. But all his tests ad data were moved to other facilities in hopes of weaponizing his research. One of this facilities failed to produce his tests properly, resulting in the complete destruction of a large city and the deaths of tens of thousands of civilians.

The Super Laser's cover name and agency was known as Project Celestial Power.

The Super Laser's first successful test fire was near two black holes (EU's Maw Installation?). The test Super Laser was 2% the size of the actual weapon.

Lyra Erso, Jyn's mother, is Force Sensitive, she could feel The Force.

Jyn Erso is born on the first year of The Clone Wars, making her 21 or 22 by the time of Rogue One.

Saw Gerrera (The Clone Wars) helped the Erso's escape The Empire.

The escape led to the complete breakdown of the time table for developing the Super Laser, and the demotion of Krennic.

The men who would later assume the Imperial titles of Grand Vizer Sate Pestage, Imperial Advisors Ars Dangor and Janus Greejatus make an appearance in this novel. At this time they are Special Emissaries of the Supreme Chancellor.

This is excellent because Grand Vizer Pestage has been mentioned since 1979's The Empire Strikes Back script. Imperial Advisor Janus Greejatus is seen in 1983's Return of the Jedi but is not named until 1988 by the West End Games roleplaying game. Imperial Advisor Ars Dagnor, who is a roleplaying game character, is Canon once again, and named by yours truly. (humble brag, this is something I share with Paizo's Lisa and Vic, who got to name some screen characters.)

The Officer rank insignia and bars of the Old Republic and The Empire not only indicated affiliation and seniority, but also acted as automated security clearance for restricted data and areas. More senior rank bars qualifying holders to more sensitive and classified information and areas. (also formerly a personal idea from my team at West End Games)

Something I found interesting last year after seeing The Force Awakens.

After conferring with a old friends from a long time ago, the very circle of gentlemen that would one day become the early contributors and site administrators of what would become Wookieepedia, we agreed that you could take over 80% of Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire trilogy whole cloth and still not contradict current canon in the movie.

If you make the assumption Kylo Ren and Rey are twins (I do not), then some 90%++ of Timothy Zahn's works still hold up.

Just because Disney said "reboot," (both understandable and necessary) does not invalidate and lessen all that has come before.

My two Galactic credits opinion.

(Ironically, one of the exceptions to the novel lore versus current canon is with Thrawn himself, because of the events of Rebels, Thrawn's promotion to Grand Admiral happens much earlier in the Saga's timeline.)

So after watching all the trailers several times, I am happy to report that the AT-AT that gets hit by a missle in the left weapons mount later blows up and falls due to damage inflicted by a starfighter.

Not so tough now are you AT AT..

To be fair that's not an AT-AT but rather an AT-ACT.

It does not have the firepower of its military counterpart, lacking the heavy dual chin mounted heavy cannons, but carrying similar temple mounted anti-personnel/vehicle medium blasters.

Supposedly AT-ACT are larger (I read this as wider), slower versions of their military counterparts, being used for cargo transport it may stand to reason they are not as heavily armored as well.

Yours truly will be busy updating the Wookiepedia during the Holidays.
