    No blood, please. :p

    You're welcome and I hope you all have much fun and enjoy the questions. Sadly there won't be much of a weekend for me, because I have to work tomorrow, too. :(


    Senny's right. It was question 1 that wasn't correct. Oh, and you don't have to use the exact wording like I do to get the full points. :p

    Star Wars Encyclopedia - Steve Sansweet

    "Ackbar, Admiral: Born on the watery world of Mon Calamari, Ackbar
    has risen from humble beginnings to become a re-nowned military
    strategist. His championing of the Rebel Alliance--after conquering his
    own inbred caution--played a major role in the Rebels' defeat of Imperial
    forces during the Galactic Civil War. He prefers to personally lead major
    assaults, and his troops still affectionately call him Admiral even though
    he is now of higher rank. Ackbar, who like other Mon Calamari has
    salmon-colored skin, large, bulbous yellow-orange eyes, and webbed hands
    and feet, was the leader of Coral Depths City when Imperial forces invaded and nearly destroyed his planet. Ackbar, one of
    the first to be enslaved, eventually became an interpreter for Grand Moff
    Tarkin. It was from Tarkin that Ackbar first heard rumblings of the
    Rebellion--as well as veiled references to a new super weapon that would
    crush the Rebels. Ackbar was rescued during a Rebel attempt to assassinate
    Tarkin and helped convince his species to actively support the Rebellion.
    Among the hardware that the Mon Calamari contributed to the Rebel cause
    were strikingly beautiful, organic-looking star cruisers."

    Ok, then that's something missing on wookieepedia...

    but even an encyclopedia only collects information from elsewhere - or at least it should. So where did that come from?


    (and no, I'm not after that extra point, I'm honestly curious because that's a) new to me, b) Ackbar's one of the few really EU-interesting movie characters, c) seems like a very odd thing to enslave a Mon Cal for, especially for Tarkin and d)... the Lit forum scares me)

    Thanks, Hal! :)



    As I said in my last post, this time the questions are a bit early because of my work schedule. That?s why I have to do another but smaller note: If you have any questions about the game or questions, it would be a good idea to send them to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/user.asp?usr=MacCaffrey]MacCaffrey[/link] and me this time, because I don?t know when I?ll be able to answer them (latest on Sunday I guess right now) and MacCaffrey could be able to answer them quicker. But he can?t promise this as well, because his work schedule says that he has to be on ?stand-by?, so he doesn?t know if and when he has to work. But I hope it works out all fine. :)


    And now to the most interesting part ? The next Questions:

    1. What?s the complement of Ackbar?s Flagship?

    2. What?s the correct name of the right natural thingy on Oola?s head?

    3. How does Chewbacca get rid of his first opponent after he, Han Solo, Leia and some other rebels got caught on Endor?

    4. How big is the crew of a Super Stardestroyer exactly?

    5. Which race(s) live(s) on Endor?

    6. Who named the exact place of the shield generator of the second deathstar first?

    7. What?s the planet of origin of the pet of Jabba, whom he likes to feed with unlucky visitors?

    8. Why do Ewoks have more than bow and arrows like heavy catapult, save alls, etc.?

    9. For which model did ILM watch elephants?

    10. Why got 90% of Nozho?s population killed and through what?


    Oh, and of course, the usual reminder:
    [li]Please, keep an eye on your spelling. [/li]
    [li]Please, remember also to put your source next to each of your answers.[/li]
    [li]Please, put the following line in the subject of your PM with the answers for this round: "[team name], RotJ, week 1". This makes it a bit more easier for me.[/li]
    [li]And as the last point, remember that only the first PM I get counts![/li]


    Good luck to you all again! [face_good_luck]
    Race fast and pick up the correct answers! [:D]

    Hal, do you know if there's a list of books or sources listed within the encyclopedia? Could you look it up, if there's a list, please? Maybe this answer your question, Senny. :)

    @Michi Check Wookiepedia out again. The information is there: [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ackbar]General Ackbar on Wookiepedia[/link] You can find it in his biography, section "1.2 Resistance leader and slave (19 BBY ? 1 BBY)"

    Actually I thought the right answer would be his occupation as a leader of the calamarian resistance, as it is stated here, that he did not join the Alliance until the rescue of the calamarian council on Daluuj. But I trust in Sabines judgement here. ;)

    @Senny As far as I see it, the source named on wookiepedia for the information on his enslavement is "The New Essential Guide to Characters " As I don't own this guide I cannot confirm that information, but I think it's save to assume that it's correct.

    Well, here we go! Next round is coming up. Good luck to everyone. :)

    Yeah, I know, that it's stated on wookieepedia, but it doesn't state that he worked as a translator for Tarkin, just that he worked for Tarkin.

    You are right! That information is actually missing, and up to now I haven't found any source for it. [face_thinking]
    As this [link=http://zorg.ws/starwarsdb/index.php?title=Admiral_Ackbar]site[/link] names the "The Essential Guide to Characters" as its source, it would be best if someone who actually has this guide could check it out for that information to see if the guide really supports that claim or not. :)

    But I would say, if it's in the Encyclopedia, it's canon.

    And I don't want to argue about that one point, just to be clear! ;)

    I know, Michi, and it's great to see a bit life within this thread. :) In my view this discussion about the question 'where did what source got its knowledge from' is interesting. Although we all know that there's a beginning and at one time a source can't base its text on another source. ;)

    Trivia - Week 2 - Results! :D

    Before I show you the answers, I like to add that I deleted two questions, because they caused too much confusion because of being not clear enough.


    The Answers:

    1. What?s the complement of Ackbar?s Flagship?
    A: 120 starfighters / 10 Squadrons

    2. What?s the correct name of the right natural thingy on Oola?s head?
    A: Tchin (right Lekku)

    3. How does Chewbacca get rid of his first opponent after he, Han Solo, Leia and some other rebels got caught on Endor?
    A: He threw one stormtrooper onto another stormtrooper.

    4. How big is the crew of a Super Stardestroyer exactly?
    A: 279,144 (Gunner: 1590)

    5. Deleted

    6. Deleted

    7. What?s the planet of origin of the pet of Jabba, whom he like to feed with unlucky visitors?
    A: Unknown/Dathomir

    8. Why do Ewoks have more than bow and arrows like heavy catapult, save alls (big nets), etc.?
    A: Fighting other big species which live on the same planet like Gorax.

    9. For which model did ILM watch elephants?
    A: AT-AT

    10. Why got 90% of Nozho?s population killed and through what?
    A: Nosho & Weogar competing for a patent on a stardrive. The end result of the conflict was a biological warfare, which wiped out 90% of Nozho?s population


    The Results:

    Colorful Lunatics --- 0 + 0 = 0
    Midlandorians v4 --- 8 + 5 = 13
    GSFF Nerf Herders - 8 + 7 = 15
    Gjiiig -------------- 9 + 7 = 16

    Although the Nerf Herders are racing faster (did they take some speed from the Midlandorians?), yet they aren't fast enough to get ahead of the Gjiiig. Let's see what happens next round! :D

    What? Us taking speed from the Midlandorians? Um, no! We would never do such a thing! And don't listen to the rumors about us sending bothan spies into the Gjiiig-headquarter to get some of our answers right! No sir, we didn't! And, um, just in case someone tells you about us keeping the complete Colorful Lunatics-team in holding cells in our basement for the last 2 weeks for questioning concerning the trivia quiz, that too is of course an absolute falsity. So, we have nothing to do with them not submitting any answers here. Honestly! [face_liarliar] :p

    Mhm, it seems there's more behind that speed than I thought first. Maybe I should investigate a bit. ;) :p



    But before I start to do anything...

    ...here are your next ten questions:

    1. What?s the name of Jabba?s wessel he used to get to the sarlac?

    2. Who flow the final attack(s) on the second deathstar and which weapons where used?

    3. What (how many and which) crew positions are there on the ship which Crix Mardine 'organised' for the rebellion?

    4. Who used a gaffi stick in RotJ beside of the Tusken Raiders?

    5. What?s the meaning of the name of the six-breasted woman?

    6. Who liked to steal food & medicine from the Ewoks and under whose leadership?

    7. Which vehicle was built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation and whose model is 1.94m long?

    8. Who was named 'the mole' during production of RotJ and why?

    9. Who swore Jabba a life-long dept for getting hugged by Jabba in a cold night?

    10. What?s the main difference between male and female clothing of the Tuskens?

    (I hope they don't cause any confusion again. They are all double-checked. :) )

    Now - while I start some investigation about the accelerators of the teams - you can enjoy the questions and looking up answers. Let's see, what I bring to light and what kind of answers you discover. :D

    Good luck everyone! [face_good_luck]

    I just have to go ahead and comment on question number nine.

    *clears throat*

    Eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwww... the mere thought of getting hugged by that slimy fat worm is revolting. [face_sick]

    *nods*

    Now that I got that off my chest... :p
    Off to get the team to the top! ;)

    Fixed. While the questions are pretty straight-forward this time, you still need a beta reader. No offense.

    That's exactly why I asked this... to hinder the conditions while you are supposed to concentrate on the questions. :p


    Maybe a beta-reader or just not posting questions while being ill and thus too tired to do anything. :p Especially since I wonder how I missed some of those obvious mistakes. :confused:

    Thanks for the corrections, Senny. :)
