    On the Star Wars Expanded Universe Fans page on Facebook they have a contest for favorite Species and the first match is Duros and Corellians. Had to go Duros for obvious reasons.

    People don't use Bing on purpose, they either do it ironically, or because their browser defaults to it and they don't know how to change the default to Google.

    I use Bing for one specific purpose: whenever Google is deciding to lag. Google has much better search results, but the one thing I can give Bing is that it's way faster.

    ...I'm not sure what to say about that.

    So, here's a screenshot of the player character riding on a Rhyhorn.

    You all are making Spaceballs jokes, and my first thought upon seeing that image was "my kids are probably going to want that."

    Well, the book is written by Pablo Hidalgo and illustrated by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff. (No, I'm not joking.) So I'm expecting there to be obscure WEG references all over the place.

    That changes everything. And why do they have those guys doing a cheap activity book when they could be working on something cool like an Essential guide to the Fringe
