First, my apologies for not getting this out the door sooner. Don, Adrian, and I will be doing our best to not let this happen again.
Second, here’s the episode! In here, we discuss ship damage control, a four-way lightsaber battle versus Vader that comes up in Falling Star, interstellar communication, and plenty more! Have a listen, and don’t forget to share feedback!
Due to the fact that this is a rather long podcast, we can’t upload here. However, you can download or stream it from our Dropbox – here’s the link:
The Expanded Universe involves all the information created outside the movies – the events preceding Episode I and post-Episode VII. From The Truce at Bakura, to the Thrawn trilogy, even to events at the dawn of the Jedi, all have been put into a separate “Legends” catagory, and all canon will only encompass Episodes I-VII, The Clone Wars, and Star Wars : Rebels, along with the new movie trilogy.
I personally see this as yet another bad decision from a company that’s slowly going down the drain. To alienate storyline after storyline, to a universe that I’ve been a part of for so many years feels like an amputation to my imagination. I don’t agree with this in any part, and I worry for the next movies. I know some of you disagree with this, and would be glad to see the EU go. To me, however, the EU was bringing me all sorts of extra campaign material.
What does this mean for the SWD6 community? Little, believe it or not. If you’re a purist, and a GM, you’ll keep your campaigns within what Lucasfilm declare canon to be. I have the Wraith SquadronSourcebook in the works, which is EU-centric information, and I don’t see cancelling it. As a matter of fact, I’m going to hold tight to the EU-now-Legends information, and continue to publish books based upon it. The Legends series will also continue to be published as well. Until I get it from dependable sources that the new canon is worth spending my time and/or money on, the EU is where I’ll be.
I got word from Adrian last night that the interview with James Spahn wasn’t on our shared Dropbox. Seems that the Internet has eaten it. So, we’re going to re-do the interview then release it at a later date.
This time, it’s recording problems. We “finished” recording yesterday, and were ready to ship it all over to Adrian for editing when Don discovered that the recording stopped right after The Jedi Library and picked back up again, for some reason, right at the close.
We’ll try to bang it out one more time today and get it in the hopper.
In this week’s episode, we tried to talk Galaxy Guide 11 : Criminal Organizations, but that fell into a dud, seeing as I haven’t had the chance to finish reading it.
However, we did get to discuss revamping the Force into its own attribute, along the lines of the Metaphysics attribute in D6 space. Many thanks to Whill and crmcneill on this thread over on the Rancor Pit for starting the idea:
