i dont think the skeletons were them, maybe they were the kind you find in doctors' offices and the stormtroopers thought it would be funny to make luke beleive it was them, whilst they took his aunt and uncle to Jabba's and sold them as dancers...

Lucas seemed to like TROOPS, maybe he secretly considers it canon.

It wouldn't be the first time.... remember his response to "CLERKS"? (even if he got the quote wrong, he was clearly influenced by it)

Then again, the Stormtroopers may have tried to put the blame on Scorpion, of Mortal Kombat fame, just as they put the blame for the Jawa deaths on the Sandpeople.

The plot thickens...

Well, even if SW.com somehow was canon we can still speculate on what they shot them with and what they burned the place with!

Actually you may have missed a cool imperial weapon...I have read in multiple sources (of EU books) that it was an imperial artillery...

Like which sources?

Was it a vehicle? Portable device? I'm intrigued.

my sources arent very reliable...I read tales from mos eeisley cantina...and assumed it was right because there is arillery in swgb...so iassume there is in Star Wars Real Life. it sounded like a vehicle...

Interesting. I thought the "Tales from Jabba's Palace" and "Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina" were retconned as just being the kind of wild stories you'd hear some old drunken spacers tell around the glow lamp, considering some of the stuff is contradicted by the Special Edition changes.

I don't own that particular book so I can't say that I've read the particular story in question. Can you quote any relevant passages? I also am less than familiar with SWGB, not having really checked it out since the demo... though that would be nice supporting source, even if it is a game. I'm sure the device would exist, the question is, is it what was really used on the Lars homestead...

ok...this is a quote from the book...Davin Felth's commander issues these orders...(davin felth is a stomrtrooper)

"'Floating fortress, this house needs to be left as a reminder of what happens when quarter is given to the rebels. fire when ready."


it doesn't exactly say that it is an artillery, I suppose it could be some sort of atmospheric battleship, I just assumed it was a hover artillery...

Perhaps there is much more to the Star Wars series than meets the eye...could this be the only clue Lucas left behind as to how Star Wars really went down? Maybe he tried to get the audience to concentrate on the petty things so they would miss the big picture...

Why would the Stormtroopers want to make an "example" of the Lars? And how did they "give quarter" to the Rebels (I thought "give quarter" meant to spare their lives by taking them prisoner, but in this case it sounds like they're using the term "quarter" as in "quartering troops in your home")? Luke wasn't a part of the Rebellion at this point, nor was Owen, or Obi-Wan that we know of. The Stormtroopers went out of their way to make their slaughter of the Jawas look like the work of the Tusken Raiders.

Plus, with what they left behind, how would anyone know that this is what happens to Rebel "quarter-givers"? What evidence would they have that this had to be the work of the Empire?

And why would an aerial (orbital?) weapon be so weak?

This story is fishy...

Its fun to be Evil!

And being a Sadist is tons of fun.

Either that, or the stormies are out of rations.

I mean, those bones are picked clean, and charboiled... you don't get that skeletal look from a burning body out in the (relatively) open.

Cannible Stormtroopers that didn't get to finish their meal?




The following tale of alien encounter is true and by true, I mean false. Its all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

Yeah, um, there were some Rebels defending the Lars' as the Stormtroopers attacked, a Bothan struck with an incinerator and missed - sort of.

Yea that’s true. So then what would have happened is the Troopers stormed the building most likely, interrogated Uncle, and Aunt Owen, Searched the place, killed them and put their bodies right next to each other outside and burned them to make it look like an accident.

They were interrogated Daala style (muscle dystrophy) and dragged outside, where they were... *insert burn theory here*

I think the only logical reason would be them getting roasted INSIDE the house, then dragged out. kinda like what you do after your food in the oven is overdone.

Otherwise its hard to have that damage done outdoors.

Either that or dewbacks actually spout fire like dragons.

The Stormies could have been going to move the bodies and then recieved new orders or just couldn't be bothered anymore... so left them were they had already got them to... Just another possibility.

Maybe they expact the Wamp Rats (or other critters) to come and eat the roasted bodies, but Luke & Crew arrives too early.

Right. Starwars.com is as inaccurate as they get.

Yeah, I thought he might just be wrong, but I think he should've been R2-D4 or something just so it would've been right. But whatever.
