I couldn't find one. But Momaw Nadon was a high priest and I found a picture of his action figure with a rather priestly-looking staff and belt buckle. I figured the belt buckle would make a pretty good symbol for Ithor or the Ithorian religion.

An exploration in complete artistic freedom, Star Wars Tales was a comic series by Dark Horse in which writers and artists were given free reign to do whatever they wanted. None of it was ever intended to be canon, and yet quite a bit of it easily could have been. I'll be storytiming my favorite bits from this wonderful little series.

It was Gungkino, tbh. If Disney had any balls they would have made a Jar Jar standalone already.



>It was Gungkino, tbh

I was entertained, I won't deny that. But writing that must have been a total chore, it must have gotten to be a bit of a grind sooner or later.



I admit, this is very well done. Thought it would be boring since its a Jar Jar story. I'm surprised he could make that gungan gibberish easy to follow and fitting with the characters.

Sifo Dyas being a separate person from Sidious predate TCW(see, The Eyes of Revolution). on a semi-related note, one of my friends always used to insist that Sifo-Dyas was Qui-gon.



>one of my friends always used to insist that Sifo-Dyas was Qui-gon

Would have been a wild twist, but also would have entirelly ruined Qui-gon as a character. The way I see it is that Qui-gon was the father figure that Anakin needed, and should have had, but because the living force needed Anakin to bring balance to the the galaxy, Qui-gon had to die so Obi-Wan could do a shit job raising Anakin and destiny could play out.

Qui-gon was essentially the perfect Jedi, how they should have all behaved and why the corrupt Jedi Order viewed him as a renegade and a loose canon. In my ideal canon Luke ends up becoming a Jedi similar to Qui Gon.



With Qui-gon pretty much being an ethical pragmatist type, it would sort of fit in my mind. After all, being a republic without any sort of organized army in galaxy with an exceedingly long history of war and violence was sort of retarded. Anyway, the Republic is usually described as a space United States rather than a space EU, where not having a standing army would make sense due to it being a loose alliance of member states instead of a country composed of multiple provinces that are semi-autonomous on local matters. That, and it would be at odds with the Jedi Order's supposed doctrinal pacifism not that they ever actually follow that rule when they get to be "peacekeepers".

I know that we already have an 8canon thread, but I feel like it's purpose is for us to iron out more general concepts and ideas and extremely specific cases like the Korriban posts.

ITT we'll be trying to fix The Old Republic as well as set up a new timeline of events that actually fucking makes sense.

Specifically, we'll be looking at

>the Jedi civil war that followed

>the interwar period inbetween the First Galactic War

Oh no. By the sound of things, Vitiate left alone the ones on Korriban at least. Can you hear that endless whispering? That's something present all throughout the KOTOR era too, going from other materials.



Could be Ragnos or Pall.

That or the residual dark side energy from hundreds of generations of powerful dark siders living and dying in its sands and crags, the point was that I doubt someone as power hungry as Vitiate would leave them alone without at least trying.

Also, I'm happy to say that SithEmpire-anon here got this thread's 100th post.



Just had an epiphany.

Just food for thought, but,

I see it literally everywhere on the internet, and even occasionally on this very board. You even will have EU fans who claim that the Prequels weren't good, they just spawned a lot of good stuff. This narrative seems incredibly forced.

What are all the complaints people have about them?

>hurrr, the acting is bad

It isn't, though, it's intentionally Shakespearean and given an operatic tone to make the movies timeless.


The Prequels have countless sets and models in them, it's a testament to how good the CGI is that no one realizes that.

>I don't like Anakin!

Really weird complaint, Anakin is a tragic hero and is case study in what can turn a good man bad. From his horrible mentors in the Jedi after Qui Gon died, to his manipulative new father figure in Palpatine, it all makes sense. You simply disliking Anakin doesn't make him a bad character.

>le jar jar

Nothing Jar Jar does is anywhere near as cringe worthy as the endless pop culture references and quips in modern day films.

So what are the other complaints? Really, because everytime I go back and rewatch the Prequels, I like them more.

>doubling down on the stupidity was a good thing

the absolute state of disniggers



The Last Jedi permanently damaged the Star Wars brand as a viable money maker for Disney, that's definitely a good thing.



Do you even read man? TLJ is garbage, but its existence helped to make the normalfags finally realizes that Star Wars was no longer Star Wars, but was in fact Disney Wars. It was an insult to our heroes, but so was TFA, with the main difference being normalfags actually liked TFA, thankfully TLJ brought about more hate for TFA and Disney as a whole, and that's a good thing, despite it being a cinematic abortion.



>as well as shortening the time frame between the founding of the empire and the Battle of Yavin to only 17 years instead of 40

But that makes more sense, only being in control for 17 years means there’s lots of people who were alive to see the republic fall. You think Hitler would have had any success at all if the Treaty of Versailles had occurred 40 years earlier to him joining the NSDAP? It’s because the empire was so younge that a large scale rebellion makes sense. It was a good change.



>only being in control for 17 years means there’s lots of people who were alive to see the republic fall

Which is one of the problems with this idea, because the cultural and materiel changes are a little too vast to have taken place across an entire galaxy in ~19 years. That's too short a time for everyone to forget about the Jedi, for one–Jedi were alive and well for the first 10 years of Han Solo's life per the Legends timeline, and even as a street urchin, he grew up on a major Core world and would have heard stories of them all the time, especially when they visited the planet (which would have been fairly common as, again, Corellia is a major core world). But his attitude in ANH implies that the Jedi are such a distant memory for society that it's easy for him to say they never existed.

>It’s because the empire was so younge that a large scale rebellion makes sense. It was a good change.

If the Empire was a 2D cartoon villain that was objectively evil and everyone universally hated, that might make sense. But remember, the new order was declared to the sound of thunderous applause. It would have taken a while, years before people started to feel the pressure, and years more after that before they were willing to risk their lives to alleviate it instead of trying to do so internally. It also wasn't a "large scale rebellion" when it began, remember: the Alliance was a few hundred guys camping out in a temple until the First Death Star was destroyed, it was only after their major victory that the Bothans, Mon Calamari, and other major planets started defecting to them en masse. So instead of Hitler's coming into power through mass appeal, the dawn of the rebellion was closer to the Turner Diaries.

This is what Disney Wars has to offer in terms of EU.


>Tam Posla was an interstellar lawman and later a bounty hunter. Formally representing the Milvayne Authority, he became Milvaynes most celebrated cop. At some point, he investigated a rash of crimes committed by Doctor Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba. Though taken off the case by his superior officer, Posla voyaged well beyond his jurisdiction and, determined to bring the criminals to justice, became a bounty hunter.

Pozla appeared in both Rogue One and Solo. In the comics he was revealed to be a homosexual. He was then killed by evil C-3PO.

Probably, although I can't remember. Despite reading a few of the comics, all I know is that she's a fem-indiana jones in space and she quips like a Whedon character. Complete trash.



She is and her girlfriend is a manly imperial cyborg version of Ellen DeGeneres.

It makes sense, though. It's the only way the ANH color wheel rank badge theory works.

I read about it on theforce(dot)net forums (yeah, I know, I know…) from the guy that supposedly sent it to West End Games along with what would become their ESB/ROTJ Imperial rank guide back in the eighties (see pic related).

Notice how in A New Hope every senior officer in a gray/feldgrau or black uniform has a badge of six squares, which are either all of the same color or a mix between two of them but always a 4+2 combination. You just have to picture a wheel with eighteen colored squares (6 blue + 6 yellow + 6 red) out of which you can take any six square "rank badge".

This theory vindicates John Mollo, the uniform designer, whose work in ANH has always been terribly misinterpreted and/or ignored, specially by fags like Pablo Hidalgo.

Sage for off-topic.

And what about the light gray or white/cream-clad officers like Yularen? Well, you may notice that they have 3+3 badges, which are also easily explained by the use of this color wheel.

Again, sage for off-topic, although it would be much appreciated if somebody could post a comparison pic of this >>23683 scene.
