Howdy howdy howdy!

Been in a Star Warsy mood lately so I thought I'd pop back in on the site, see if my login works. And change my forum avatar (my photobucket went kaplooey I guess) It's good to see some old faces still hanging around!

Cool to hear so many of you are currently in or starting at university. I actually just finished my degree in December 2017 - currently unemployed but I've got some career fairs and applications lined up. Maybe grad school depending on how my most recent application goes.

I'm sure we'll get to Mandalore eventually which would be exciting. Like you said, in Rebels and some other material from Filoni there's reference to a 'Siege of Mandalore' that would have likely closed out The Clone Wars TV series, and is probably responsible for whatever fractured state Mandalore is in right now.

All signs point to them being more closely related to the EU Mandalorians. It would be cool if they brought back some of the really old Marvel comic books where Mandalorian Protectors, led by a Fenn Shysa, rebelled against an Imperial Governor. I mean Rebels reintroduced the Protectors, and made their leader a character named Fenn Rau. So it's a possibility.

I continue to follow Rebels as soon as it comes out. I absolutely LOVED the first season. The introduction of the new characters, the gradually growing world, and the tight plot and writing all made it an enjoyable watch.

Season 2 for me has been a bit of a letdown though, personally. While I enjoy the one-off episodes, I thought the way everything tied together so well in Season 1 set a tough precedent for Season 2 to match. I just feel like the focus hasn't been there, and a lot of the episodes have been boring and forgettable. It is great to learn more about the characters though, and there are a few standouts. Such as the Protector of Concord Dawn, The Honorable Ones, and the most recent Shroud of Darkness. And I am eagerly looking forward to the season finale! Everything that's been teased so far has me very excited!

I feel like at this point in the series, the show could benefit from more multi-episode arcs. It doesn't have to be anything as intense or committal as The Clone Wars' fixation on four-parters in its latter seasons, but I think the occasional duology or trilogy of episodes would benefit Rebels. With all these one-off episodes that Rebels has, the writing and pacing seems far too constrained. If they just had an extra 20 minutes to tell each story I think things would be more enjoyable.

I'm definitely interested in seeing how Mandalore develops though, and with the developments in The Protector of Concord Dawn, its likely that we'll be returning there soon!

*screeches like a raptor to announce presence*

I've been trying to check in every once in a while, forum errors and browser glitches permitting. Sometimes I can log in, but the posts don't work. Or I can't even log in.

But yeah, ol' H-BOMB's still hanging around, still interested in Star Wars and whatnot. I actually tend to be a little more active on theforce.net's Jedi Council Forums. They have a pretty active community, and quite the army of Mandalorian and Clone fans too! I go by H-BOMB over there as well so if any of you are interested pop in and say hello!

But yeah, glad to see some folks are still kicking around, keeping the love alive. :heart:

*Coughs through forum dust*

Yeah I try to pop in here every one in a while too. Occasionally there's weird issues where I can't log in or can't post but sometimes it works.

Anyway, today is March 1st! Spring is coming! New beginnings! (Although I say that at the beginning of every week pretty much). Still in the middle of university, looking at another year or two before I graduate and have to figure out what to do with myself!

It's so great to see everybody here moving onwards and upwards. This was the first online community I ever really joined, and you've all been great friends!

It looks gorgeous, and full of genuine emotion and action and . . . the music.

It's the music that gets me! :')

Thoughts? Any bets that it will feature Rogue Squadron and rad X-Wing dogfights? If so, I am beyond excited!

HOLY CRAP!

I finally remembered my password! It's been like two years or something!

Anyhow, how is everybody doing? What are you all up to? Some crazy stuff has been happening with Star Wars lately, some crazy stuff has been happening with the world!

As for me, it's my second year of college. Studying Geography and all that goodness. Pretty much all I've been working on lately. I've been writing here and there, hiking and exploring mostly. I'm just literally so happy I finally was able to get back on this site. For so long every time I tried to log on there was some weird error message preventing me from doing so. That seems to be gone now though, so yay!

Whoa, that's really cool! I like how each time you lose a life the background gets more and more trippy. And the dying sound is great too.

Is this part of a game design class for your university?

I recently returned from a two-week vacation in the UK! Had a lot of fun!

Now I have two weeks to prepare for a week-long backpacking trip that's part of my college orientation, and to buy the rest of the supplies for my dorm room.

One of the rare instances when I'm actually super excited for school starting!

It just occured to me we could have Temeura Morrison come back as an old Boba Fett. How cool would that be? Just imagine Han Solo and old Boba sitting at a table in a cantina somewhere about to get in a fight or grumbling about old age together.

If they at least borrow some cool ideas from the post-Endor stuff I'll be satisfied!

Sounds like a bunch of new Jedi recruits!

Hmmm! Sounds interesting! I'm glad they're returning to the OT conflict, I always liked the era a little better for some reason.

Been there. Done that. Took both of them actually, they were pretty much the same score.

I'm graduating in about two months. Pretty scary actually, but just as exciting!
