    Greetings and hello. My name is Kudzu, and I'll be your host. It struck me that when Reeft has his own (albeit neglected) character discussion workshop thread and everyone's favorite standardized infantry of the Old Republic doesn't, there's something seriously wrong. Seriously, can Reeft operate a Z-6 rotary blaster and speak with a Maori accent? I didn't think so.

    Let's get this party started, then. Basically, it'll go down like this - I put up a topic for discussion, and as soon as it has been discussed to my satisfaction, I'll put up a new topic. Why this somewhat selective system? Because, dear friends, every time I set up a solid timeframe, it doesn't work out right. This method is subject to change - and change comes from people participating. You hear that? Participate! :p

    Also: challenges. Yes, challenges. They are very fun, exciting, and otherwise awesome - unfortunately, there's a temporary ban on creating new ones, so I'll hold off until it is lifted. Shouldn't be too long before then. After that, challenges will be periodically offered, and if you're clone enough to do them, you just might get a cookie.

    And with that: Begun, the Clone Trooper Discussion Workshop thread has!

    Topic 9/10/05 - Find a quote that you think accurately describes clone troopers and explain why it does. Feel free to critique others' findings as well.

    Nice thread. I'm a big Clone Trooper fan, including and more specifically Commandos.

    I'd be much obliged if you added [link=http://boards.theforce.net/The_Saga/b10476/20191928/?2]Enemy Of the Republic[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/The_Saga/b10476/20874174/p1]The RC Chronicles: Alpha Squad[/link] to your index.

    I'll think of some suitable populare quotes to go with the clone troopers theme.

    Well, joining in here as well, ner vode (hope that spelling is right, even tho I think the ner is changed with vod/e in plural)

    It's a nice idea, Kudzu

    Kudzu: Could you please add my three fics [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=20947174&start=20955304]Elite[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=21423497]Bounty[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=19219430&replies=0]Havoc Squad: Lock and Load (WIP)[/link] to the story index as well? (if you need those headers - descriptions, summarries, and so on... - PM me ;) )

    I will think of some qoutes as well ;)


    EDIT: Well, thx for putting my stuff on the list. The disclaimer-thing: I think it should be quite obvious that Lucas owns it all... but tell him, Kudzu, if you want... :p

    I should hope that people know. If anyone asks, "So did Peter Jackson say you could write this?" on one of my fanfictions, I will eviscerate something.

    I find it amusing that for the Order 66 challenge, I wrote one about the guy who missed killing Obi-Wan and I made it about how he made the shot because he had a loyalty that none of the Republic citizens thought he was capable of. So now, I'll talk to someone and hear them go "Every time I see Order 66 at ROTS, I recognize your character!" I liked in the Hand of Thrawn duology, when the clones were emphasized as sentients with actual emotional capabilities.

    C'mon Kudzu, don't play coy with us. We know you love yourself! ;)

    I like this first topic, and I'm going to qoute a song I was listening to when Clone Commando Darman was trying to convince Jedi Etain that he was only ten years old in Hard Contact.

    Darkness *1
    Imprisoning me
    All that I see
    Absolute horror
    I can not live *2
    I can not die
    Trapped in myself
    Body my holding cell

    -Metallica, One

    I think that the first four lines(*1) describes the life that the clones were created for, imprisoned by their own birth. The evils of War, living a life others would see as dark, and horrifying

    While the last four lines (*2) describes how the fit into society. In the Medstar doulogy, clones were shown to be an interchangable set of parts. KIA clones, with still healthy bodyparts, have been ransacked for parts their. The fact "you've seen one clone, you've seen em ALL", mentality of society towards them.

    Oh, I accidentally came into the official Kudzu fanfic listing...I was looking for the Clone Trooper workshop :p

    It amazes me how much you've written on clones. You're a machine...dedicated to your craft...

    You're a clone, aren't you? It all becomes clear. :cool:

    If you don't mind, I may come here for assistance once the clones begin making their appearances in The Golden Siege.

    Yes, you should probably find a good way to retcon that accident [face_laugh]

    It's here! The first challenge is here!

    [b][color=crimson]NEW[/color] [color=darkblue]CHALLENGE #1[/b][/color] - Describe one of the following battles from the eyes of a clone OC of any flavor you desire (that makes sense, anyway; i.e. there wouldn't be ARC troopers at the Battle of Geonosis, clone commandos at the Battle of Coruscant, or Null-ARCs at the Battle of Kashyyyk): the Battle of Geonosis, the Battle of Krant, the Battle of Thule, the Battle of Muunilist, the Battle of Mon Calamari, the First Battle of Kamino, the Second Battle of Kamino, the Battle of Coruscant, the Battle of Utapau, or the Battle of Kashyyyk. Use at least 1,500 words, please. First-person and third-person perspectives are both permissable. And last but not least, have fun!

    [b][color=darkblue]YOUR DEADLINE[/color][/b] - 1/31/2006

    [b][color=darkblue]YOUR RESPONSE THREAD[/color][/b] - [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=22628486&brd=10476]Here![/link]

    Clear enough?

    Give it your best shot, clone-lubbers! [face_grin]
