View Full Version : (Zanzibar) Special Meaning Behind Codes?

Hey Zanzibar, is there any special origin behind codes like J-154 in the game? Did you use telephone numbers, license plates, or did you just pick them at random?

I only mention this as I know there is usually some SW reference in a book or game. In one SW book (either in the Jedi Academy or X-Wing series), the code SGW-0027 is used. Add one letter or number, and you get THX-1138 (those unfamiliar, this was the name of George Lucas' first feature-length film).

Whoa! Talk about freaky, I just saw a car pull up across the street with the license plate 'J154 TPM'! I'm not kidding! I know license plates are different over in the US, but that's the usual format over here in the UK (Letter, Three Numbers, Space, Three Letters).

Hmmm...J-154 honestly had no meaning whatsoever, and neither did the R-65 blaster that Panaka uses. We just riffed some <ahem> cool-sounding names back and forth until we came up with it. Same with the Chokie stuff...someone asked me "Give me a name for this food stuff," and I immediately popped out 'chokie' and it stuck. There's even a mode in the AI called 'chokie check' http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

Yes, I'm rambling again.

http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/rolleyes.gif Yes, Tom, there are two Dave Mauls. We both have exactly the same amount of posts, we both live in the same area, and (talk about freaky) we both joined on the same day!

The above text is a demonstration of sarcasm.
