got kanrethad down to 49-55% a few times.
imps are still a huge huge huge problem. moreso than felhunters, because if I survive the imps, I’m usually too overwhelmed to properly deal with felhunters. also because I can’t kill them very fast bc when felhunters are up, my pit lord is running around, and I’m trying to deal with it all.
howl of terror kinda helps a little? problem is, pit lord is usually too far away by that point and I can’t pick it up again so I die to cataclysm.
the adds are still the number one issue.
not liking having to have a very specific set of talents and use ultra specific spells that I’d never heard of before and am not sure I’d have use for again. idea of quest 10/10, actual fight design -10/10
imps are still a severe problem, not sure if they’re worse than the felhunters.
have to have an infernal up for felhunters.
focusing kanrethad makes it easier to keep track of where he is should I survive the felhunters- dying there because can’t reenslave pit lord fast enough to prevent cataclysm
I’m still not pleased with the design of this fight at all. like half these abilities are super not what I would have thought of, didn’t even know some of them existed. also favors one specific spec and build.
46 PERCENT HOLY SHIT
I think I finally got the hang of the felhunters and figured out that I have to fire and brimstone the imps like instantly
okay, this suddenly seems like a billion percent more doable
All I want is for Mara Jade to be a Sith Inquisitor who ran into Luke between Episodes VI and VII, was redeemed, fell in love, married him, and all that stuff. PLEASE.
#okay first#episode vii spoilers#every rumor that’s come out has room for her to exist#like#whether inquisitors happen or they don’t or luke is a captive or he isn’t#she could still be hanging out somewhere#that’s why i won’t be upset if she isn’t in episode vii#unlike other legends characters she has the potential to be canonized at any random moment#she also has the potential to be inserted by fic writers in so many situations#her in-universe secrecy means we could go through the entire trilogy without seeing her but she could still exist#because she was being hidden *that well*#my sequel trilogy mara opinions are totally tinfoil hattish#idc#she’ll always be there while i’m watching it#on a secret mission from the legends universe#to investigate how boring a galaxy without her would be
green fire progress: aaaaalmost made it through felhunters
imps still not dying very fast if at all. usually with felhunters, can’t kill all three and re-enslave boss before cataclysm.
ugh food and flasks and repairs are so expensive and green fire should come with like 5k gold to make up for the agony
but are they heavily implied to be queer??? (give me ferus olin or give me death)
no confirmation of queer. then again the only men Kanan has interacted with are creepy and old, pretty much.
gimme canonical queerness or give me death.
Hey, NYCC-goers, we’re having some kind of riotous drunken wake/party for Legends. Because have you accepted Vergere as your personal lord and savior? Shots of Corellian whiskey, anyone? And no, I’ve never yelled about Thrawn while really drunk with mosymoseys.
I decree it.
When you are 13 years old,
the heat will be turned up too high
and the stars will not be in your favor.
You will hide behind a bookcase
with your family and everything left behind.
You will pour an ocean into a diary.
When they find you, you will be nothing
but a spark above a burning bush,
still, tell them
Despite everything, I really believe people are good at heart.
When you are 14,
a voice will call you to greatness.
When the doubters call you crazy, do not listen.
They don’t know the sound
of their own God’s whisper. Use your armor,
use your sword, use your two good hands.
Do not let their doubting
drown out the sound of your own heartbeat.
You are the Maid of Untamed Patriotism.
Born to lead armies into victory and unite a nation
like a broken heart.
When you are 15, you will be punished
for learning too proudly. A man
will climb onto your school bus and insist
your sisters name you enemy.
When you do not hide,
he will point his gun at your temple
and fire three times. Three years later,
in an ocean of words, with no apologies,
you will stand before the leaders of the world
and tell them your country is burning.
When you are 16 years old,
you will invent science fiction.
The story of a man named Frankenstein
and his creation. Soon after you will learn
that little girls with big ideas are more terrifying
than monsters, but don’t worry.
You will be remembered long after
they have put down their torches.
When you are 17 years old,
you will strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig
one right after the other.
Men will be afraid of the lightening
in your fingertips. A few days later
you will be fired from the major leagues
because “Girls are too delicate to play baseball”
You will turn 18 with a baby on your back
leading Lewis and Clark
across North America.
You will turn 18
and become queen of the Nile.
You will turn 18
and bring justice to journalism.
You are now 18, standing on the precipice,
trembling before your own greatness.
This is your call to leap.
There will always being those
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don’t see the part of you that smolders.
Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound
of your own heartbeat.
You are the first drop of a hurricane.
Your bravery builds beyond you. You are needed
by all the little girls still living in secret,
writing oceans made of monsters and
throwing like lightening.
You don’t need to grow up to find greatness.
You are stronger than the world has ever believed you to be.
The world laid out before you to set on fire.
All you have to do
Star Wars is an incredibly creative galaxy, where storytellers have sent Jedi on countless missions, explored numerous planets, and discovered hidden treasures since 1977. I grew up with the original trilogy, and as the years passed by I read the books and comics, I played the games, I saw the re-releases, and I could not believe it when one day I sat in a theater and the screen said EPISODE I. It was a day I had waited for, for a long, long time. I went to all the prequels on opening night, stood in lines like we all did, went to the “Midnight Madness” toy releases. I really enjoyed the community that had grown up around the Star Wars universe.
Little did I know that before the final prequel film was released, I would move to Northern California and begin work on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, right alongside “the Maker” George Lucas. I felt like I had won some Star Wars lottery, but I also felt a tremendous responsibility to all the people I knew who loved Star Wars: to make sure that I “got it right.” As my own personal Jedi training began, I always had George there to answer the deeper questions, to make certain that we got it right, that we truly made Star Wars the way he wanted it. He used to joke with my crew and me, telling us that he had been teaching us the ways of the Force so that one day when he retired Star Wars could keep on going without him. I’m not sure we ever believed him, until it happened.
So how do we move forward? And how do we make sure we get it right?
Very simply, we trust in the Force, and we trust one another. We came together as a group and found the best talent: people who, like you and me, love Star Wars and want to make it great. Who want to capture the feeling that it gave all of us, that inspired all of us. More than at any other time in its existence, new Star Wars stories are being told every day. More important, the old concept of what is canon and what isn’t is gone, and from this point forward our stories and characters all exist in the same universe; the key creatives who work on the films, television, comic books, video games, and novels are all connected creatively for the first time in the history of the Star Wars universe.
A New Dawn is a result of this method of story collaboration here at Lucasfilm. As executive producers of Star Wars Rebels, Greg Weisman, Simon Kinberg, and I had input on the story and characters, working with author John Jackson Miller. I even got to make comments on the look of Kanan and Hera for the cover—maybe a small detail to some, but it was exciting to be a part of that process, and to know the characters would remain true to their intended design. I really hope you enjoy this story, and that it enriches your experience and knowledge of the characters in Star Wars Rebels. There are still countless worlds to visit, countless aliens to meet, and with the incredible talent we have coming to work at Lucasfilm the way forward looks clear.
Last I must thank you. Whether this is your first Star Wars adventure, or one of many over the years: Thank you. Thank you for your dedication to and passion for the Star Wars galaxy. Because of fans like you around the world, the Force will be with us, always.
