>>11775018
Exactly. Disparate groups still using the old empire's troops and material, each trying to maintain a grip on their territory and even reunite the entire Empire.

Easily something that could happen. The issue is them "ceasing to exist." The "empire" as the exact same thing is no doubt over, but the same basic thing can still be the enemy, in a reduced, but still potent, form.

Sure, although there are probably larger subgroups with more legitimacy (and more industrial capacity) than the others. Someone's producing that new Stormtrooper armour, after all.

It's nothing new to complain that Jedi mysticism feels very wishy-washy and unpractical compared to an ordinary person's way of doing things. Remember when Corran Horn spent half of I, Jedi faffing about in the Jedi Academy, then he realized he was wasting his time and none of what he was learning would help him find his wife? Then he quit and went off to track her down using CorSec investigative techniques.

There's a difference between I, Jedi and the entirety of Traviss's works, though. I wholeheartedly agree there's needs to be some characters wary or downright disagreeing with the Jedi, and not be evil characters for it. It makes the setting richer.

But the way Traviss did Mandalorians and their relationship with the Jedi wasn't about that. It wasn't about adding to some larger whole. It was about tearing down the Jedi and lauding her precious pet characters as the true heroes.

A little KotOR: Sith Lords is fun every now and again, but it also needs to be able to sit with the rest of the works and characters where the Jedi, and the more zen/one with everything morals they bring with them, are also heroes and their philosophy correct and prudent.

That's only true of her later works. Her early books handled both the mandalorians and the jedi pretty well. They asked a few questions that honestly needed to be asked (notably the moral implications of having millions of people bred to fight for you) without feeling overly preachy about it. But then people started bitching at her for daring to question the jedi's morally superior special snowflake status, and she overreacted, resulting in Order 66 and her Legacy books taking it way too far.

This fight was great. It shows a lot of character just by the way both Luke and Vader behave.

Vader barely moves and effortlessly deflects all of Luke's blows (with one hand, at that), showing how powerful and seasoned Vader actually is. Meanwhile, Luke is nervous and guarded, but swings wildly, hoping to catch Vader off guard. Notice that Vader waited for Luke to strike first and is, obviously, playing with and testing him.

It's like the Ben/Vader fight. You don't see a lot of movement, because both of them are fairly old men by that point, but you can tell both of them are/were very powerful and capable.

>>
>>11775985

That's an exclusive Sam Jackson color, silly.
>>
>>11775991
I thought they used the synthetic ones because they were somehow stronger than natural crystals, and all Sith are edgy
>>
>>11775991
But why did Dooku have a red lightsaber? Wasn't he an ex jedi? Do they take your lightsaber away when you stop being a jedi? Because otherwise it makes no sense for him to not keep it, the council sure seemed to trust him enough. Plus, how does this apply to Vader? By the time he got his lightsaber order 66 had already happened? Who was stopping him from getting a normal crystal?

Luke's second lightsaber used a synthetic crystal too and it was green.
>>
>>11776034

The Empire banned the acquisition/trade/ownership of both lightsabers and crystals. Palpatine gave Vader the one that's in his red saber.

Dooku was edgy and thought he was much, much cooler and more effective than he was. It was probably symbolic because he wanted to be a big, bad, evil Sith Lord reeeeeeeally badly.

But they are the Empire, they don't need to follow their own rules.
>>

>Implying they would laugh.
>>
>>11776015
In the old canon, the synthetic crystals that make red blades usually produced rather weak blades. But apparently they resonate with the Dark Side of the Force, so if a Sith wielded one it actually produced an exceptionally strong blade.

In the new canon, all we can assume is that having a red lightsaber is basically a declaration of what side you're on.
>>
>>11776111
Personally I think that's stupid, that only Sith or those aligned with the Dark side can have red lightsabers and nothing else.

Only the pilots who prove good (or lucky) enough to survive in a standard TIE Fighter are allowed to move up the equipment ladder to a TIE Defender. You want a Defender, you start in a Fighter. That way, there's no scrubs going around in ships they aren't good enough to use.

I wouldn't even call it easy modo, I'd say it's the only one of them with a decent design, since it can spin quickly, easily and independently. Then again, I think double bladed lightsabers (or similar weapons in any franchise) are fucking retarded and think a spear/pike or dual wielding normal sabers is far more effective in any instance where they're used.
>>
About Siths and the red lightsaber thing:

It's worth pointing out/remembering that in the original trilogy, lighsabers were a traditional weapon reserved for Jedi. The Emperor even mocks Luke for it. It's implied that Darth Vader had one because he was a former Jedi.

The Emperor didn't have a lightsaber, and he was pretty fucking threatening. He was far more intimidating and threatening in RotJ than RotS.

None of the Sith "needed" lightsabers. And let's not forget: the "Sith" weren't even a thing in the original trilogy. Which is also my point. The Emperor and Darth Vader were corrupted and affiliated with the Dark Side of the Force, nothing more.

Speaking of lightsaber combat

This always bugged me. Yoda jumping around like a rabid weasel looked so corny to me. Would have been cooler to just have him control some floating light sabers like they were bits/funnel/fannels from Gundam.

Vader is referred to as Dark Lord of the Sith in the novelization.
>>
>>11777609

You could also have him be so good at force based combat using things like telekinesis/force pull that he didn't even need a lightsaber and just used the environment and the force itself as his weapon.
>>

>>
>>11777840
You're right, but if I recall correctly, it was just a vague title.

The movies themselves say nothing about the Sith until The Phantom Menace. Obi-Wan never mentions Anakin becoming a Sith. Yoda doesn't say anything about Sith either--nor do Darth Vader or the Emperor. Just the Dark Side.

And it was better that way. It had more thematic resonance.

They were first mentioned in the novelization for A New Hope, they've been in this since the beginning. Why else would there be comics featuring the Sith out years before The Phantom Menace fully canonized their place in the lore?

Yoda did try that though, it didn't work because Doko was as equally adept at using the force.

Oh man. Are we really going down the "only the films count" rabbit hole?

>>
>>11778069
Why wouldn't we?

The films don't refer to anything but the other films. The EU is dependent on the films, but the reverse doesn't hold true. And in a discussion about what the original intended storyline was, the EU and the prequels are irrelevant anyway. That's the entire point of bringing it up.

>>
>>11778088
>And in a discussion about what the original intended storyline was, the EU and the prequels are irrelevant anyway
the novelization is actually quite relevant to the intended storyline in the instance of the original Star Wars since it was based on earlier scripts and gives a window into the creative process and authors' intentions
>>
>>11778095

Even then, the implication is that he's Lord of the Sith the same way Dooku is the Count of Serenno.
>>
>>11778102
>the novelization is actually quite relevant to the intended storyline in the instance of the original Star Wars since it was based on earlier scripts and gives a window into the creative process and authors' intentions

The novelization is certainly not based on earlier scripts. The only one based on earliers scripts is the Alan Dean Foster sequel novel, which features the Kaiburr Crystal and that was more a result of creative diffusion with Lucas suggesting ideas he wanted to see for ADF. It's really interesting since the transcripts of the story conferences were recently published in Insider that he even thought it might be fun if Leia and Chewbacca ended up together.
>>
>>11778128
Context.

Earlier scripts weren't released for the public to be consumed as art/entertainment. The original trilogy was. The changes you're talking about don't require retcons. The changes I'm talking about do.

In any case, you're missing my point: earlier scripts are irrelevant because I'm talking about the intentions and implications within the original trilogy itself. That is the parameter.
>>
>>11778088
The EU is actually also dependent from George Lucas. According to the writers of TOTJ comics, the entire idea of the ancient jedi fighting the sith lords came from Lucas.
>>

>>11777537
My impression has always been that while Jedi build lightsabers as a sort of spiritual practice to cap off their training, Sith mainly use them out of necessity. Fighting fire with fire as it were.

Though if synthetic crystals and such can be made, why don't bounty hunters bother with them? Seems like a wrist-mounted beam saber would come in handy.
>>
>>11778210
Craftsmanship stuff and the DIY nature of lightsaber smithing, prolly.

Anyone who could make one wouldn't make one for anyone but themselves... save for those mass production sabers as implied during events in Ep2.
