    Sounds like a certain institution very popular in good old Europe ;)

    Not saying that isen't the case (well military some more some less). Still they agreed on common laws, a common language, common defense and military regulation, a common currency, common law enforcement, fund gigantic projects for joined use, Far Orbit Project quite interestingly also mentions that just about all Core Worlders have access to a state run welfare system etc. Clearly these things come from them exchanging ideas and adapting concepts from elsewhere, just like the cultures on earth will exchange and mix ractices when they come into regular contact.

    Especially the Great Powers where always out to mimic each other once they felt someone was doing something better, as they couldn’t let the other one get the prestige of being the only one. Especially concept that showed to be working in other nations would often be copied.
    Thing is, they pretty much are subject to the consensus of the Senate but this would usually be things the Core Worlds together would be interested in anyway.

    As someone who can trace his heritage back to no less than six different European countries: all you WHMs look the same to me.

    Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic laser sword and said "By the power of the Force!"

    Luke has the power!

    Although I've defended Mark coming back as Luke in the ST, I will accept recasting the role if it meant we got He-Luke for real.

    I'm really looking forward to this game. I love the FFG LotR's game, so this should be great.

    I for one would like to see SW LCG's based in the TOTJ era, TOR era, the PT era, CW era & Legacy era. I think those could all be awesome games!

    I've been having a blast with the game. Fun, but not super tough to learn, but not very strategic or super-strategic anyway. Nothing will ever beat SWCCG for that, even Magic.

    Thank god WOTC's SWTCG died. That was the worst CCG/TCG/LCG game ever, regardless of brand.

    Prophet of the Dark Side. One of the great gifts Glove of Darth Vader gave us. Hopefully The Glove and The Moffship will follow.

    If we get a Mofference card I'm buying the whole set.

    It will not be complete without the three-eyed one himself.

    To paraphrase a great man, this card set has many powers of art and lore, but without the three-eyed one it can never achieve perfection.

    I was at Disneyland the other day with some friends, and they were selling -- I kid you not -- the GLOVE of Darth Vader. Like, an actual singular glove. I freaked out and my friends just couldn't understand why.

    To think -- supreme galactic power right there for $14.99

    Did you buy it, though? And then strike a pose?

    You bought it on the spot, of course.

    I did neither of the above because we were in a hurry. I did buy the previously-reference Artoo Detoo mouse ears though.

    I should have at least taken a picture of the darn thing though... oh well, I have an annual pass, I'm sure I'll be back next time I have a break.

    I saw the "Beginner's Game" version of the RPG is already out (stripped down rules, pre-made characters and starship, small adventure). Has anyone read through it yet?

    Did we know that bit about the AT-STs and the ground penetrating sensors before? Or is that new?

    These images lack species diversity.

    I want my One-Armed Wampa card. [face_not_talking]
