I saw a few episodes of That 70s Show where Eric becomes a Star Wars fanboy after seeing it in 1977. One thing I found interesting was, when talking about Star Wars with his father, Eric refers to Darth Vader as a Sith Lord. Where might he have learned this term back in 1977? I don't recall the mainline movies ever using the term in the theatrical cuts, and the first time I ever heard it mentioned was in the Phantom Menace. Did he read some expanded universe material? Was there any published Star Wars work in the 70s that mentioned the Sith? All the expanded universe material I know from back then mentions "Dark Jedi" but not the Sith. Was this just an oversight by the writers of That 70s Show?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was just an oversight since That 70's Show was written by people who knew of SW as it was in the 90's and 00's, not the 70's.

>>1193 Even worse was Eric's collection of Star Wars toys. This is in 1978 and he somehow has a Yoda and Palpatine figure. Was Eric a time traveler? Did he break into George Lucas' mansion and steal them not knowing what they were? >>1207 It kind of sucks, because Eric's entire Star Wars dream sequence is clearly from the perspective of someone who's only seen the first movie. A love triangle between Luke, Leia, and Darth Vader is not something anyone would imagine after Empire Strikes Back unless they had an incest fetish. So you can tell they at least tried, but fell short with some small oversights. Ultimately forgivable, but still needs to be nitpicked.
>>1193 The show had a lot of inconsistencies. Most episodes even had him knowing or owning shit that shouldn't even exist yet, and it wasn't just exclusive to SW.
I was honestly never that fond of the show. Unlike Happy Days it seemed to be too self-aware and often came across as too much parody. Parody is fine, but having the characters believe in the setting they exist in would be nice. But none of it really matters considering how awful the final seasons were.
>>1224 >But none of it really matters considering how awful the final seasons were. Was there more than one season after Eric "left?"

So Snoke's a pedo? And has a creepier relationship with Adam Driver's awful character than Palpatine did with Anakin? So what's Disney trying to tell us here? Why is this ugly loser dressed like a woman?

That is a hotel room for him and his wife. Take note of the two beds.
How ugly and desperate would a woman have to be to be willing to marry the personification of soy?
Beats me. They probably don't spend much time "together."
Let's be real here. They've probably never spend any time "together." That's what her boyfriends are for.

Infinity Cup Stormtrooper 11/10/2019 (Sun) 02:40:36 No.385 [Reply]

As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown:
>The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan
>It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami
>I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year
>Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them
>Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls, and even rudimentary player models
>24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th
>On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after
>With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed.
>I disappear for about a month
>I return in October
>We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring.
>You are here.
The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you.

Out of the delta 7 and the ETA 2 starfighters which would you rather fly and fight with?
3 posts and 1 image omitted.
It's not Seinar enough and I want to blend in.
Delta 7. No question about it.
I feel like Delta us more reliable, and also more stylish, so I take it. It could certainly absorb some hits.
they are both insufficent in the role of dedicated jedi spaceship.

>have external hyperspace drive. imagine getting sent to a dangerous hutt controled region and being unable to come back because your drive was JAWWED
>no cargo space, at all. need to capture a dangerous pirate or move ancient relic to safe place? too bad
>1 seat. hope your padawan learned how to fly on his own.
>tie fighter tier durability and no shields, or shields so weak they are not even worth mentioning
>no room for extra supplies, long journey is impossible
>cost more then a fucking freighter, seriously what the fuck it is just a fucking set of engines and guns mounted to a cockpit, fucking corrupt republic no wonder it fell. seriously you could have 3 YT-1300 for the price of one

whoever thought this was a good idea was retarded. jedi should use bigger, heavier units, like patrol or scout craft
ETA 2, I was always gay for the TIE Interceptor so why wouldn't I want to blow it's grandfather that had an option of having shields?

Thought you'd like something creative and fun to do. Just create a build and make sure you end up with positive or 0 points at the end.

Thank you for signing your post, anon.
And why would you sacrifice playing as the correct character for booty when you could just bring handmaiden or mira along?
It's all about self insertion (giggity). Says something about you when you prefer inserting as a female & romancing the mens NPCs.
Speaking of self-inserting as a girl to get with other girl npc's, here's the donut steel I came up with":
>female zeltron padawan
>picked up as a young child
>adaptable, agile, attractive, charismatic, energetic, natural warrior, relentless
>rebel, deadly secret, bad influence, attachment, wrath
>force view: major heterodoxy
>archetype: jedi guardian
>basic force powers: telekinesis, force control, force confusion, force empathy, force sence
>advanced force powers: force cloak, battle meditation
>blue pike lightsaber
>lightsaber form: ataru/sokan
>skills: persuasive, survivalist, investigative
>custom clothes, sentimental item
>unliked in hutt, mandalorion, and corporate territories
>pathfinder corvette w/ electronics, hyperdrive, life support, stealth, laser canons, ion canons, slave rigging
>Master is Linneth Tal-Ithal, supported by Knight Lirwyn Nieth, with fellow Padawan Sy-nne Lyrenna
>contact as Thalia Cende
So my headcanon is, she was picked up by happenstance as a street urchin and carted off to the Jedi Temple. A number of years later and she's showing some behavior issues and caught trying to sneak out to explore Coruscant with her bestie Sy'enne, unsupervised. In order to straighten them both out and instill some sort of responsibility, they're tossed onto Master Linneth's shoulders for some offworld tutoring, some shenanigans go down concerning slavers and a missing Jedi and bam, fanfic foundations set. The only other detail I can cohesively go on about is that the item she holds onto is some seemingly harmless trinket that plays a little tune if she concentrates on it hard enough.

Aw, thanks bro. I almost felt like putting it all together was wasted effort.

Really just waitng for the thread transfer so I can do an autism dump of some of my writings in the sepcanon thread.
>waiting for my daily dose thread
Dump it in the current gold one. I'm treating it as the main one since the thread transfer's taking a year

I feel bad for the mods, if I knew it'd be this big of a hassle I'd just ask them not to transfer that one over and just use the current one over here
This with how shaken up everything has been since finitechan I’m keeping the discord server added, in case everything dies again. I lost a lot of dear communities when 8chan died and through the discord I’ve managed to stay with /sw/ at least. So I say it stays up and we all just try to post here more.

**I’m traveling and away from a PC for a few months so maybe the mobile site is just shit, but is there a way to see timestamps on posts or are there none for board purposes to keep old threads activer than they would be with timestamps maybe?
You can't see timestamps on mobile unfortunately, but they're present on desktop.
Guess I’m buggered for a few more months. Oh well, as I said if I can’t see a post is two months old I might still reply to the thread.
