In the words of Monty Python: "I don't like spam!"
*ahem* Anywho, Laam'inui, Ky'ram's pretty much right. Simple answer's the best one sometimes. As far as I know, there's no real cannon image of what a Verpine sniper rifle really looks like so it's pretty much up to the fans to make up whatever they
think it looks like. The one you said was too short and wide was what Ray Ramirez (if I'm not mistaken, which I could be you know...
) felt was the Verp from his imagination. And I'm pretty sure he's basically the first guy to do and got Ms Traviss' stamp of Mando approval. Personally, I like it. It kinda fits with the thing Kal said about them being able to fire rocks if they had to, ya know? Bigger barrel makes sense.
Mark, I gotta say that it was pretty funny and ironic to throw that back (I know I laughed!
) but after the first time.... I dunno. Hey, didn't you used to be a mod like right around the time I joined up? Tisk, tisk! Somebody should know better. lolz
You were dying to whip that out again, weren't you Anecdote?
