    I hope we do Sword of the Jedi* next, just to really throw everyone off.





    *A young girl's strange, erotic journey from Milagro to Mrisst.

    Or Crucible:

    Luke, Han, and Leia learn smelting!

    Though I'm curious: do you mean Mrlsst?

    I do hope that isn't describing Allana. :p

    Corran Horn's friends help Corran Horn save Thyferra from Corran Horn's archenemy of the day (because together, at least with Corran Horn alongside them, they are more awesome than the entire Republic), then Corran Horn celebrates by getting married, inheriting a father-in-law with a Star Destroyer, and denying Luke Skywalker the honor of teaching Corran Horn.

    (Yes, I know, still needs more Corran Horn. I just can't torture the English language enough to squeeze it into one "sentence.")

    No, I'm sticking with the underappreciated original recipe.

    No reason to bother now, because that just won.

    Semi-colons are your friend; if Virginia Woolf could make a sentence last three pages, they can make Corran Horn references fill a novel. :cool:

    But seriously, @Hav - how long did you spend looking for just the right GFFA analogues of "Milan" and "Minsk"?

    About a minute. It just so happened that there were two planets I knew that sounded right.

    Sure you can. Take a page from Cicero and try some periodic structure. Semicolons are for amateurs.

    Anyway, we should probably stop cheating with all these advance entries or we'll just kill the thread. And that wouldn't be cool :p

    To shake things up comics and short stories can be included (though who the hell besides the hardcore WEG crowd will remember the events of some of the more obscure Adventure Journal stories? ;))

    Pilots become pirates, giant bugs kill people, and there are many, many proton torpedoes.

    I want to work through a lot of the big stories for starters, but I'll start peppering other stuff in eventually.

    The Empire uses a raciest plague in order to "DESTROY THE ALLIANCE",(of course) and our heros go Rogue (see what they did there) and over through a planet government, cure the plague and create the galaxies best space casino.

    Good news: it's time for another lightning round, this time it's Hav and Cav tied for the lead.

    Bad news: they're tied at a paltry four votes. Step it up, people! Nick and Peabody are at three, so really, it's anybody's race.

    I hope you just get yourself into a four-way tie now.

    I decided to contribute my vote where it would cause Coop the most aggravation satisfaction because now the competition will last longer!

    Hey, I'm rooting for Peabody. [face_not_talking]

    Oh, and just for the record: people can vote for more than one entry. That may not have been clear.
