it is meant to be dash and the outrider...inserted by a fanboi at ILM back in the day
So...would that then make Dash Rendar a canonical character, and thus not strictly EU? Hey....wait a sec. That wasn't a EU question. Oh well you're the boss, so it's cool.

I'll have to check that out.

Q. The Outrider makes a cameo appearance in one of the movies. Which one ? Where ?
I know the answer....but can't remember the name. Will edit post later if there is time.

No, Dash is not "Movie-Canon." And it is EU related because Dash is in EU.

phreak, I will leave you a little while to come up with a pic if you want the bonus, otherwise I am awarding one point

* * *

I think Aurra Sing was in the movie before she became an EU phenomenon, so that was why the answer escaped me. I loved the Aurra Sing comics

There were always rumours that she was going to re-appear in ep2 but that never happenned.

I am satisfied with Phreaks answer, (if you were thinking of someone else sivy. let us know)

I'll resume

Q. What is Juri Juice ? Who is a particular fan of it ?

Juri Juice is an intoxicating drink commonly served at Wuher's cantina in Mos Eisley. Kabe, a female Chadra-Fan who frequents the establishment, is addicted to it.

Bonus Image:


Source: SWCCG...from memory.

Since I assume that I am right, I will ask the next one:
According to EU lore, what are three things that can enhance/increase one's natural force potential?

Bonus: List sources (just quick names, no details needed)

Extra Bonus: find more than 3 (there's only 3 that I'm aware of)

Not intended to be a louse question. Only quick answers.

Kabe's tale is also told in the wonderful "Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina" compilation.

Asking a question that refers to material that *only* ever appeared in SWCCG or RPG sourcebooks is a crime punishable by death in this quiz !

* * *

As for your question, this is what I can come up with :

1. Kaiburr Crystal - Source Splinter of The Minds Eye - as well as the YJJ novel 'Lightsabers'

2. Those force crystals in JO, I dont know of any other name for them !

3. Certain lightsaber Crystals also have this effect - source KOTOR/KOTOR II

4. Locations :
Dark side places :
Korriban, Byss, Vjun, Dagobah..sources ESB, Dark Empire, KOTOR

Light side places : The Jedi Temple, Ilum, The Valley of the Jedi....sources PT, Clone Wars cartoon

5. Partnerships :
*Sith Master/Apprentice bond
*Master-Padawan bonds
*Force Melds : I Jedi, NJO(used in piloting)

* * *

Please let me know if that is sufficient Jedispy, so I can give myself the 3 points !

* * *

Lets continue, shall we ?

A Winner is U.

Didn't know about the KOTOR thing. Never played it myself.

Didn't know about the other stuff too. Cool. (#5 that is)

A.
(I assume he shows up in EU at some point in time.)
Coleman Trebor is a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi council. What is so special about his name is that he's named after a real person named Rob Coleman (Trebor is Robert backwards) that is in some way connected to Star Wars. (I can't remember role and purpose). His species is Vurk.

I can't remember where I heard this, so source = From within the confines of Jedispy's endless knowledge of useless trivia.


Q.
Name 5 dancing girls in Jabba's palace at the time of ROTJ (don't forget about EU characters.)

Bonus: Include species names.

Oola - Twilek
Lyn Me - Twilek

A: Cortosis is a type of ore. It has the ability to short out lightsabers that come in contact with the stuff. Can be used as weapons against Jedi, or lined along walls so jedi can;t cut through with their lightsabers.

Q: What Jedi lived with the Tusken Raiders?

Aah. Interesting character this one

A'Sharad Hett The son of Sharad Hett, a jedi killed by former padawan of the Dark Woman come bounty hunter - Aurra Sing. Sharad was originally to be trained by Ki Adi Mundi, but he chose to live among the Tuskens on Tattooine.

Hett eventually confronted the Dark Woman, and ended up becoming her student(with teh blessing of Ki Adi Mundi)

Hett did return to the Jedi Order, and attained the rank of master buy the time of the Clone Wars. He became quite close to anakin, during the battle on Jabiim, where he mentored him in teh absence of Obi-Wan whom was presumed dead at the time...

Because of his history with the Tuskens, actually was one of the few to know anakin's dark secret about Tatooine...

source - numerous Dark Horse Comics, from Outlander to Republic...

Q. Who assumed the title of 'The Trickster Goddess' ? What was the motivation behind this ??

Hmm got me on that one. I was thinking of Sharrad Hett. But they were both living with the Sand People. So win-win.

A: Jaina Solo. It was all part of the psychological warfare against the Yuuzhan Vong. it was very effective in pissing them off

Q: Who was Queen Amidala's predecessor and what happened to said person?

hmm... interesting. But you see, if you are just limiting the content to what was actually said in the movie, then the questions will be fairly limited. It would also be damn easy for the likes of EU TITANS like me and phreak

...So rather than "who owned the cantina" which is an EU question, a movie *only* trivia thread will have things like "how many systems was the alien who confronted Luke in the Cantina wanted on ??" is that what you mean....

I wouldnt mind hearing what phreak has to say...of course Astro would have to be given extra powers if he was to run such a thread over at the OT section....

I'll keep you posted

* * *

In the meantime, get your teeth stuck into a real challenge, the EU quiz !

* * *

A. Jabba's full name is Jabba Desilijic Tiure... Source : Tales from Jabbas Palace

* * *

Q. Han made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs....since a parsec is a unit of measurement of *distance* rather than time, what does this boast actually mean ?? make sure you give a souce

A: It means he got really close to the Black Holes (Maw Cluster) making the Kessel Run shorter. Source: Han Solo Trilogy.

And I'm not bothering with the OT trivia

looks liek we double dipped the Jabba question...ah well.. me first !

btw. technically, the *original* source for Hans handling of teh kessel run was actually in the Jedi Academy Trilogy...AC Crispin actually just expanded on what Kevin J Anderson had described...

but you still get the point

he he...I thought movie trivia would be below your awesome mind phreakski. Nonetheless, I think it may be something non EU freaks would be interested in.... Ive put it up for discussion at swforums so we'll see how it goes

in the meantime, asking a question. No ? Ok I will !!

2 point question
Q. Brielfly outline the origins and evolution of the Xwing fighter.... (use spoiler tags if necessary for any ep3 related content).. Make sure your answer covers right up to the end of the NJO

*pimpslaps Astro* know your place foo!**

A: Well, there's the Z-95 Headhunter which a civilian and pirate favorite. It looks like an X-Wing except no s-foils.

Then the X-Wing comes. It... looks like an X-Wing. The Rebels use it throughout the Rebellion and New Republic.

Then we have the XJ-Xwing. Which is a new and pimped out X-Wing that the Jedi Order was using at the time of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. It is basically an X-Wing but new technology and junk.

I'll throw this one in, but we could argue whether it is an X-Wing precurser or not:

spoiler:
ARC-170. The only reason anyone says it's an X-Wing precurser is the S-Foils, but it really doesn't look like an X-Wing. It's big and looks clunky, but it does have a rear gunner which you would think would be able to keep things off their back.


The last bit can really be arguable.

Since I don't know if this is to your satisfactory, no question asked.



**Again... not being serious :/

I think it would work. If you or Phreak dont want to mod it then i can be promoted into a mod and i could mod it.

Also the questions for the OT could work. Or i guess it could be on all 5 (6 after ep3). I dont think the questions would be too bad and lets be honest - not all the questions in this one are as hard as they could be for "EU TITANS" as you would say. In fact the questions on the OT (and/or PT) would be fine. (And the answer is 12 systems.)

And if it is below you then you dont have to join.

---------------

no way am i posting an answer - especially after saying that to a mod.

Guybroom, as per the rules, try and keep your posts re- the tquestions and answers. If tou have any further questions about this, PM me.

anwyay, I have submitted the idea to the other mods. I have volunteered to mod it. This thread needs a bit of maintenance, and so will that, so I am pleased to do it.

Yes, it will be about all 6 ilms(eventually after may!) and will probably be located in the cantina. It all really depends on what the s-mods/admins have to say... as I said, I'll keep ya posted (check my sig!)

* * *
oh yeah, 2 points to phreak

I'll give a very brief rundown re the XWs. Needless to say, they were derived from ships you will see in ep3. They were used in Galactic Civil War times by the Alliance, and after the defeat of the emperor the New Republic gained control of the corporation that designed and produced them(Incom).

The Xwing evolved somewhat, including losing their astromech socket. Towards the post thrawn/Njo era, the xwings were further tweaked, leading to models such as the XJ, XJA and XJX...

A) Mon Mothma was from Chandrila. This was significant because it was one of the few worlds that openly opposed the Empire.

A: Alpha Red is a biological weapon created by New Republic Intelligence. It was to be used against the Yuuzhan Vong in the war. It was apparently tested on this "Caluula" planet, and it was overly successful, but the project was scrapped after the Yuuzhan Vong surrender.

Ha ! Phreak reads YJJ Interestingly enough this political group came to prominence more thana decade after ROTJ. They demanded equal rights for non-humans(as opposed to teh Emperors New Order for example) and some of the more outspoken of its members condoned acts of violence against humans in order to achieve this... The group was based on Ryloth, its leader being a Twilek by the name of Tarkona. The DA dissappeared into the ether after Tarkona vanished... In some countries this book in the YJJ series is called "The Emperors Plague" , in others(including here in Oz, it is simply called "The Diversity Alliamnce..."

firstly, Shok I did ask for a very brief description of the antilles named...

You can add them in if you want the full two points

He he...the "Obi wan's brother" conundrum is one of the *very very rare* cases that two sources of G-level canon(movie related stuff from Goerge Lucas himself) actually contradicts/overrules itself...

In the ROTJ novelisation, when obi wan was chatting to Luke on Dagobah, he dropped this bit of info...

It was also mentioned in a post TPM/pre AOTC "Jedi Apprentice" Novel about Obi Wan as a padawan...

however, excluding this second source, it can always be argued that Ben was simply lying to Luke, like he often did before, and using that "certain point of view" excuse to justify it....

anyways. The Lars' connection to anakin is more esatblished, since Owen is his step-brother. This better explains why they would take on the responsibility of looking after Luke, as opposed to Obi Wans brother...

oops. I can't believe I missed that. I knew it seemed strange for that to not be there. Okay, here goes:

Wedge Antilles- Corellian fighter pilot; only one to survive both death star runs

Syal Antilles- Wedge's sister; married Soontir Fel

Jagged and Zena Antilles- Parents of Wedge and Syal; owned a fuel depot on Gus Treta; killed by pirates

Captain Antilles- Captain of the Tantive IV; previous owner of Artoo and Threepio

Bail Antilles- one of the people nominated to take over in place of Chancelor Valorum

I count 3, but I'm guessing the 2 you mean are Jade's Fire and Jade's Saber (the other is Jade's Shadow). The Jade's Fire was crashed into the Hand of Thrawn, destroying both. The Jade's Saber was destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong on Dantooine.

I still pass on the question

An 'ugly' either a conglomoration of various starfighter parts (including, but not limited to, A-Wings, Y-Wings, X-Wings, and various TIEs) or a Tri-Fighter, a standard TIE cockpit with three wings mounted at 120 degree intervals, two laser cannons, an ion cannon, and more shielding than a normal TIE fighter. The uglies were imployed by various pirates, including the Invids, the pirate crews that raided for Admiral Leonia Tavira, commander of the Invidous Imperial-class Star Destroyer. My source is the Michael A. Stackpole novel I, Jedi.

A) Rogue Ten was Ooryl Qrygg. His species was Gand (same as Zuckuss). He had the right to referr to himself in the first person, which is a rare priviledge amongst his species. The source is X-Wing series and I, Jedi.

Q) What was the Keeramak?

Firstly, I'd like to announce the Movie trivia thread is up at the cantina. Follow my sig to get you there if interested

* * *

A. The Keeramak a Ssi-Ruuvi that was born, according to prophecy, to incorporate all the castes into one being. After alot of political intrigue between the Bakurans and the Pweck, the Keeramak was actually shot by a Pweck named Lwothin. This all occurred in Force Heretic II in the NJO of course

A: Well....not so much an A as it is an attempted A. I can't remember too well.

If memory serves, Luke was going to Dagobah to find materials for further instruction (such as a journal or a holocron.) What he did find is that Yoda's hut was completely overtaken by the tree. Also he found a device used in slave circuits to call one's ship if needed.

If I'm wrong, let me know.

A) It was from the yatch of Jorj Car'das, who was a very sucessful smuggler. He had been injured from an encounter with a dark jedi, and healed by Yoda. He returned to Yoda for more healing, but Yoda tossed it the beckon call (along with Car'das' blaster) into the jungle, then sent Car'das away (suggesting he might seek out the Aiing-Ti monks). This is all from the Hand of Thrawn duology.

Q) What weapon used on the forearms was developed by Kar Vastor?

I cant give an answer and I think i might quit from this trivia thread. It was worth a try, but I hardly understand any of what you are talking about being that i have read none of the EU.

I will try to play with the film version of the thread though, but I doubt i will be back in this thread. Well, not for a long time anyway.

Bye


IM NOT GOING TO BE ON THE FORUMS VERY OFTEN NOW! I MIGHT BE ON TIME TO TIME, BUT IVE BASICLY GIVEN UP THE FORUMS NOW!!!!

bye all
