Black and Grey. Justice and Mourning. Justice for the clones, aka Skirata standpoint, Mourning for the clones's lifespans.



Who'da thunk it? I thought it was just a neat color scheme.
Lists of games I play:
-- Star Trek Online
-- KOTOR (1 and 2)
-- SWTOR
-- Terraria
-- TF2
-- Magicka
-- Left 4 Dead 2
-- Garry's Mod
And nearly any other F2P game on this planet.

i personally believe that White would mean doing what you believe is right. just my personal opinion. although the clones had white armor doesn't mean that they were doing what they believed was right even though most did. it was more that that was what was given to them.

im pretty sure that some color stands for doing what you believe is right and i personally think it would be white. i think that yellow would stand for hope because it is brighter and hope is usually imagined as somethin like a sun which from our veiw on earth is yellow. the imperials didnt give mots shebs about color significance

If there are color meanings other than what's listed, they are fanon not canon.

But sometimes fanon is better than canon.

True. Compare Xander's works to, say, Jar Jar.

Yeah, but as good as it is or can be, it'll never be official.  (Unless someone official makes it official...)  It doesn't make an impact on future SW stuff, it'll never show up in a book or game...so that definitely detracts from fanon's awesomeness.

True. Compare Xander's works to, say, Jar Jar.

"To say nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic."

True. But fanon is what you think it should be like. It gives you the sense that you control something in the SW galaxy. Especially if you make up your own character.

OCs are the bomb. I used to make lists of characters that I might use in stories, but they all got deleted when my computer crashed and burned a year or so ago.

My computer crashed yesterday. I lost a Word document that was on my latest story that I do when I'm bored. It was two lines long.  :ouch:

I just thought of one color we don't know. Orange. The color of the gods and I forgot to ask. What does it mean?

In 501st, Orange is reported by Kal to mean shereshoy, or "lust for life"

2 things:
I. Orange armor means shereshoy, or "lust for life"
II. Jaing's grey armor probably reflects mourning the 6 Nulls that didn't survive.
