Dunno. I'm pretty much always on skype, if someone wants to make a thing there, but I've not been active on steam in a while. Potato computer isn't too good at games right now.

Signed up for the summer classes...

Put in the immigration packet for my fiancee, got a great scholarship on top of the GI bill, and so on and so forth. Things have been good.

I'm wondering, what do you guys think of the new Halo games; Halo 4 and Halo 5, by 343 Studios? Have they been doing a good job? I've heard some pretty negative things about them.

Haven't even touched them. I'm a pc guy now.

Eventually, yeah. I do pay for it, after all. :P

Still keeping out of pocket after all these years? That's pretty hard to believe. You've created a little artifact of history here.

TEN BLEEDIN' YEARS A'!- hows that feel for a legacy? I envy you.

*Coughs through forum dust*

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!

Even though posting is sporadic at best, I can't help but feel good that I contriubted to a small revival. Good times may come.

Private, things will always get better eventually. I was in the same place before I joined this forum. And while I had many good years here meeting and talking with awesome people it still wasn't quite enough to get me out of my depression stage.  I didn't give up though, I found joy in whatever I could and planned my future as best I could.

Optimism can't hurt I guess. I'm sad though, the thing I always wanted to do the most, join the armed forces like my dad, his dad, an his dad before him had done, but my continual string of new medical defects doctors are discovering in my body aren't helping that desire. Oh well. I'll figure something out.

I think I fixed most of the forum errors.

Gotta admit, I never thought I'd actually see you post.

I miss the days of when this place used to be active. This place was really active back when the Clone Wars was still running. If anyone's here, I'd like to talk. Let's bring some of the discussions here back to life. I'll start with posting in a few of them.

Well, I'm here, but I don't check much. I'm on steam though!

Jodo Kast was a former rebel who took the armor as a way to capitalize on Boba's success, he was never a Mandalorian.

I thought the female Mandalore was at a completely different time period, wasn't it Alpha>Fenn>Boba?

And I dislike the way they treated the Mandalorians in the episode where they showed up, but what more can I expect from Rebels?

I still pop in to check every once in a while and reminisce, but University's been keeping me pretty busy lately. Always miss the RPs and the old community we had, this was a great group back in the day and I miss it like hell.

I wonder if Fenn Rau and Fenn Shysa are related? Some groups of Mandalorians might have different naming rules, kind of like how in Japanese the last name is said first, so then Fenn could actually be a last name perhaps? Clans and family seem to be very important to Mandalorians, so it makes sense that they would want people to know their clan name first. Maybe in their own language, they would say their last names first, but when translated into Basic, it is reversed?

Another little nuance I've noticed with the Clone Wars and Rebels is that even though each Mandalorian forges their own armor and customizes it, each clan and group seems to have a similar color scheme and pattern, like how all the Death Watch members had roughly the same color patterns, or how all of Fenn Rau's Protectors had the same colors on their armor. Even though most customize them, there does seem to be some degree of regulation in what colors they put on their armor.

On another note, I have a theory on who Sabine's mother might be. Dave Filoni had said that he's very certain that Sabine's mother was one of the Death Watch members in the throne room when Darth Maul killed Pre Visla. I believe that she is Rook Kast, Pre Visla's second in command. She does kind of look like Sabine, especially in the Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir comic. I wonder if she is by any chance related to Jodo Kast, a Mandalorian from one of the old Marvel comics that at one point impersonated Boba Fett (which Fett did not take to kindly to). So her last name is actually Kast and not Visla. That would make her of clan Kast. So it seems that the clan represents a Mandaloran's family and blood ties, while their House represents their loyalties and allegiances.

Does anyone remember Shae Vizla from The Old Republic video game trailers? A lot of people think that she was Pre Visla's ancestor, because Pre Visla said that his ancestors stole the darksaber from the Jedi Temple, and Shae just so happens to be a Mandalorian named Vizla that participated in an attack on the Jedi Temple in the days of the Old Republic. She could have been the one that stole the darksaber. The main reason I've seen why some people don't want to support this theory is because her last name Vizla is spelled differently from Visla, which honestly, I don't see why this would be considered an issue. This was likely just a mistake, though a possible in universe reason I can think of that would explain this difference is that since Shae Vizla and Pre Visla lived about 3000 years apart from each other, in that time, the spelling of their last name could have changed. In real life, the spellings of last names often change over time, so I don't see why the same can't be true in Star Wars. I think that adds an element of realism to it.
