  1. What you said about Canderous is every bit as applicable to Anakin. As for saying it wasn't necessary for Anakin to kill the children, it most certainly was. He was told to go to the temple and to kill all the Jedi he found, and that sadly enough does include the younglings and the padawans. His orders were pretty clear. The Emperor didn't tell him "Go to the Jedi temple and kill all the Jedi... but only those over the age of 12! We need to convert the young ones!" So the blame here lies mainly with Palpatine for giving the order. Evidently, Anakin could have chosen not to obey, but that probably would've gotten both him AND Padme killed. The reason why Palpatine told him to do all this is to make sure that Anakin's transition to the dark side was complete, that he wasn't just pretending to become his apprentice so he could save his wife. Besides... This is a point in history where there are only two Sith Lords at a time. If any of these children had survived and been trained properly, they may have eventually taken Vader's place as Sidious's apprentice, and I'm pretty sure Anakin would have none of that either.
  2. You wanna go to Duro? Better bring a breath mask is all I gotta say about that. Place is polluted like you wouldn't believe.
  3. Skor II. How can you go wrong with a planet full of Squibs whose capital is named "Metrobig City"? (Though if I MUST vote for one of the ones listed, then I guess Coruscant.)
  4. It sounds like you may be referring to the Anzat species. Although they are not a "vampire" race per se, the Anzati do feed on others' life energy, particularly on Force sensitives. There's a pretty in-depth description of the species in the Star Wars d20 sourcebook "Ultimate Alien Anthology". There's also a description on Wookieepedia, though it's nowhere near as disturbing as the one in the Ultimate Alien Anthology. Basically, in game terms (if you're familiar with the d20 system, which you would kind of have to be if you've played KOTOR), once the Anzat inserts its proboscices into the creature's brain, the creature loses 1 point of Constitution per round until it reaches 0 CON and dies. (Let's just say that the only time I even encountered one of these in a d20 game, I was really, really glad that a) there were three Force sensitives in the party, and b) my character wasn't one of them.)
  5. Hey, Master Ikrit rocked! Bunny with a lightsaber! Come on! (...and I'm working on it... I unfortunately recently got distracted by Oblivion )
  6. Well... no, I already established that Yaddle was as well. I didn't ACTUALLY just photoshop a wig onto Yoda, you know. She was on the Jedi Council around the Clone Wars, mullet and all. However, if there are any other instances of this species, I haven't come across them yet. That would be the Chadra-Fan. Very sociable little rodents... In fact, in the Star Wars d20 system, if a Chadra-Fan spends more than 24 hours alone, they start losing Constitution points until they eventually die of loneliness. True story. Chadra-Fans do rock. However, I will see your Chadra-Fan and raise you a Squib... or a Kushiban. I love Squibs because they're so wonderfully annoying (and so well-portrayed in the novel Tatooine Ghost), and as for Kushibans... well, who wouldn't love a half-metre tall little fuzzy creature often mistaken for pets whose fur colour changes according to its mood? Mood fur! Come on!
  7. Yaddle as well. You would think though, that with two members of the same species on the Jedi Council at the same time, someone would have thought to give the species a name.
  8. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that she was 19... I can't remember where I saw that, and I can't seem to find a source... But it makes sense, because after all, she is still a padawan at the time of KOTOR I. So yeah, Revan would be easily 10 years her senior, but really, who cares... The older you get, the less age matters. Besides, Han is something like 13 years older than Leia, and nobody ever seemed to think it was an issue.
  9. Are you kidding? "You're so beautiful." "That's only because I'm so in love." "No! It's because I'm so in love with you!"
  10. By removing Hayden Christensen and putting in someone who can act instead? I'd be all over that. Granted, no amount of good acting could make up for the dialogue in episode III. I picked up my DVDs after work today. Does that make me a chump? Perhaps... But I'm a happy chump who'll get to see Han shoot first. :D
  11. I'd be really hard pressed to pick a single one... hell, I'd be hard pressed to pick a single one per era. So I'd have to say... Old Republic: Obi-Wan and Mace Windu (because he saved Skor II. Nice man.) Rebellion era: Han Solo New Republic/NJO: Thrawn (cause, really, how can you not like Thrawn?), Mara Jade, Anakin Solo As an aside, while I don't have a specific hands-down favourite character, I do have a hands-down most hated character... and that would be Borsk Fey'lya. He is the reason I have come to hate all Bothans.
  12. I concur. I'm pretty sure if his home planet had been mentioned somewhere, I'd have noticed it during my extensive fanfic-related research. I always sort of assumed he was originally from Corellia, seeing as he has a bit of a Corellian attitude, and since he's effectively a ripoff of Han Solo.
  13. I'll... uh... keep that in mind. Funny, you never struck me as a furry. ANYWHOO... this is literally how long the Revan/Thrawn argument lasted in my household: Silver: Hey, who do you think would win--Revan or Thrawn? Silver's bf: Well, Thrawn, duh! Silver: Thank you.
  14. Wow, this argument's still going on? You go away for a few days, and you figure that thing would've died down... Guess not! Wait... are you saying I'm a mythical creature? Sweet! Can I be a unicorn?
  15. Yup... Revan = not a chance. Anyone who says otherwise needs to read the Thrawn trilogy.
  16. That's right, I'd totally forgotten about the fact that Thrawn always had ysalamiri around... which would mean that Revan would find him/herself to not be able to use the Force around Thrawn. Not only that, but the fact that Thrawn always had Noghri bodyguards lurking in the shadows would seriously increase his odds of winning against Revan on a one-on-one battle. (I mean, yes, it wouldn't technically be a one-on-one battle if the Noghri got involved, but good luck trying to tell a Noghri he can't jump in to protect the person he's in charge of)
  17. If it was a one-on-one battle, then I guess Revan would win, based on the whole Jedi thing. However, Thrawn was military genius and a much better strategist, being able to predict how people would react and attack simply by studying their art. If it wasn't for his Noghri bodyguards unexpectedly turning against him, he would have taken over the galaxy, no contest.
  18. Meh. Sure the place was nice and all, but there are so many other planets at least just as nice and as mysterious that we haven't visited yet. I can't really think of a reason why we'd have to go back there. We only ended up there so we could be granted access to the Star Forge. So unless there was an actual relevant reason for us to go back, I'd rather just see a new planet, just for the sake of change.
  19. I think the whole Dantooine thing should be dropped, seeing as 4,000 years later, there's practically no one living on Dantooine, except for the native Dantari people. As for all the people who suggest Myrkr... as curious as I would be to see exactly how gross it would be to fight a vornskr... not to mention a pack of them, as they generally travel in packs of three or more, you do realize you wouldn't be able to use your Force powers at all while on that planet, right? (Unless perhaps you ran into an area where there were no ysalamiri present, in which case the nearby vornskrs would likely all flock to you, given that they prefer hunting Force-users)
  20. My last dog had diabetes. She was diagnosed about 2 months after I got her (she was an old dog I adopted from the Humane Society). I had to give her insulin shots every morning and test her urine twice a day with these little strips. In addition, anywhere I went with her for longer than a couple hours, I had to bring a little cooler with me with her insulin as well as corn syrup, on the off-shot that her blood sugar got too low (not to mention a bottle of water, as she always was very thirsty), and I always had to make sure she ate at the same time every day. Toward the end, she had become completely blind due to this. Once she wandered under a desk and couldn't find her way out. It was kind of sad.
  21. I would personally like to go to Skor II myself... but that's just because I love Squibs, as they are wonderfully annoying. But if they didn't bother including the battle of Skor II in the Clone Wars cartoon, I'm pretty sure the odds of the planet getting included in any game are slim to none. *le sigh*
  22. Hahaha! I was just about to quote the article...
