So, here is what I suggest.
For all fantasy series of books, spoiler that ****. It is just too hard to read EVERYTHING, and keep up with everything, but we all have our lists which are a mile long and will get to them eventually.
For "The Mandalorian," spoil away in here - we will all know not to enter the thread until we have caught up with the episodes.
For Episode IX ... just have some decency. If the Mandalorian Season 1 is still going on, as it should be, spoiler your **** for the first few weeks Ep IX is out so we all have time to see it without spoiling, but can still come in here and talk about the Mando.
Well The Mandalorian is going to tie into IX so that's going to be a murky couple weeks.
All the more reason to be thoughtful when posting and spoiler anything that could ruin something for one of our friends.
I approve of this thread. I have spoken.
Well the second to last episode was moved up to December 18th (day before the movie comes out) so i'm expecting it to be a somewhat in your face tie in. Just preparing peeps for it. It's already pretty obvious what it's going to be be.
Hopefully it will be good - I am loving the series so far, though the last one - directed by Bryce Dallas ****ing Howard for some reason - was less good.
People can spoiler their **** for a few weeks right after the movie comes out - it takes almost zero effort. I am going to see it sometime between Dec. 26-29, and if anyone ruins it for me before that, it's rampage time.
I’m seeing IX on the 22nd i think it is. I have done my best to avoid all of the plot leaks. I know ppl are reacting poorly to the supposed leaks but I’m still hoping for the best.
Theories on Baby Yoda?
I read something about the now non-canon history that Yoda's species was involved in an extended war with the Mandalorians. The conflict this will bring up when Mando realizes that the kid is an ancestor of an enemy of his race makes this theory seem plausible...especially in our current climate.
They're going to attempt to clone him and use his healing powers to heal Palpatine. It's probably not going to work because it will be stopped by the Mandalorian. So in the new movie Palpatine is going to need Kylo/Rey to heal himself which of course they will and then they'll have to fight together to kill him.
So is this where I talk about fantasy books?
Yes. But no spoilers.
I was gonna make a witty Harry Potter spoiler but they've all been done to death.
I would recommend Brian McLellan and his two series, Powder Mage trilogy and GodS of Blood and Powder (last book just released, gonna read the trilogy now). Fun flintlock fantasy.
I read the first trilogy and it was pretty good, and the characters were good. The only complaint I had was that I thought he did a poor job of explaining the process of using the powder + ammo.
When we have more time, we need to make long recommendation lists.
There were some times where I wished he flushed it out more. But the colorful cast of characters and action made me overlook the explanation of the magic system.
Yeah, me too. I'll gladly read the follow-up series when I get to it.
So, I just started watching the Mandolorian and something occurred to me. That armor that the storm troopers wear is basically the most worthless armor in history, right? I mean, it would probably protect against rocks or pointed sticks but it seems pretty useless against blasters or any other actual weapon. Mando even killed one of them with a knife. Heck, even the Greeks and Romans had armor that protected against knives.
Baby yoda memes are some of the best memes in a long time.
Yeah, for sure. We used to debate that and make fun of it in the late 70s and early 80s when I was a kid. That stuff looked cool, but was otherwise useless.
Just started reading the first book in the SW Alphabet Squadron series, and it is pretty good so far. Same author as the SW Battlefront Twilight Company novel which was surprisingly excellent.
I must not be in the know then. No clue what it could bee
The reason they wanted Baby Yoda was because they likely want to clone him. The doctor was from Kamino. They want to clone it likely to heal Palpatine or something like creating a force sensitive clone for some reason.
I could see Rey just being a clone or Snoke being a clone puppet. But more than likely it’s just to heal Palpatine but the Mandalorian will stop it.
