Yes.

M0le's got a few, and here's a few more (for the hell of it):

The Ancient Sith, led my Naga Sadow, attack, but are pretty soundly defeated.

The less-ancient Sith, led by Ulic Qel-Droma and allied with the Manalorians, attack.

Tharwn's cloaked asteroid siege of doom.

A combined force of Imperials invade and conquer in the day's after the defeat of Thrawn.

The Galatic Alliance's attack on Yuuzhan'Tar (formally Coruscant).

M0le can take it,

Pfff, you're talking about KOTOR with that first one. Points off!
During the time of Thrawn, how long was it thought to take, at a minimum, to grow a mentally stable clone?

Gah, now I'm gonna have to read the Thrawn trilogy again after you guys reminded me how much I enjoyed it.  Mara Jade = kickass.

I shall venture a guess of ten years, without the little sloths that became the EU's ultimate Deus ex Machina.  Well, them and cortosis, which I believe was also a Zahn invention.

The games are EU just like the books and comics, so you'd better embrace it. Just play KOTOR- it's absolutely marvellous.

According to the databank, 15-20 days.

Pikka, I think he's asking about before Thrawn's so-brilliant-an-idiot-could-have-devised-it ysalmiri technique.  So a year.

I also like to see these databank types trying, in vain, to try and make the EU and the prequels coexist.  Can't be done...there are too many outright contradictions, particularly of the Thrawn trilogy.

If episode I was like KOTOR 2 it would finish when maul knocked obi wan down the shaft. Have you seen KOTOR 2's ending it's pure crap both LS and DS.
Both games rock though.

Ricky gets it, as I asked how long it was thought to grow a stable clone, and nearly nobody except Thrawn and some of his buddies knew that you could grow one in 15-20 days.
I never said I hated KOTOR, I'm still trying to figure out how you came up with that Nurdy.  tongue

Wow.  Not only did this thread go for more than 24 hours without everyone ignoring it again, but I got one right...

Hmm...what's a tricky one...

Q: Name the starship manufacturer spun off of Incom, Inc. after their primary design team defected to the Alliance.

Hey, looking through the Databank for ideas makes me want to read the NJO books.  Sure, they seem mostly depressing (memo to Mr. Salvatore: You Do Not Kill Chewbacca.) but at least my favorite Solo kid (Jaina) appears to kicks some serious ass.

See, Salvatore's used to novels where he has an infinite number of ways of Deus ex Machina-ing a character back to life.

Light yourself on fire and throw yourself into a gorge with a dragon (which is also on fire?) You survive because your buddy's magic scimitar somehow gives you fire reduction even when it's not equipped.

Get five tons of rock dropped on your head?  You survive because your Drizzt fucking Do'Urden.

Slain in honorable combat by a demon?  Nope, you're alive, kicking and ready to be arbitrarily brought back after several years of suffering in the Abyss because your author is obsessed with love triangles.

And hey, its the Realms.  Even if one of them was Sphere of Annihilationed they could just pop down to the neighborhood Archmage for a Wish to bring them back.

[/Salvatore Rant]

To bring my offtopic together with the topic (sorta) is the Star Wars d20 gme worth picking up at all?  I haven't yet, because I live nowhere near anyone who would want to play it (see also d20 Modern) but giantitp has introduced me to the wonderful world of PbP.

Who ever said that it had to be equipped to protect him from fire?  Besides, Bruenor's a dwarf; it takes more than that to kill a dwarf.

The rocks didn't fall on his head, though.  He fell down a chute, and the rocks covered the chute.  It only looked like he had been crushed.

And that's where he lost me.

The other two examples were clearly instances where the character in question wasn't dead, the other characters just thought that he was dead.  That's a perfectly valid plot device.  However, if you're going to actually kill off one of your main characters, you should have the guts to let him stay dead.  If he didn't want Wulfgar to be dead, then he shouldn't have had him die in the first place.

My friend Marc has the Star Wars d20 rulebook.  I've looked through it a few times, but I haven't had a chance to play it yet.  It looks pretty interesting.

Of course, if you've played KOTOR then you probably know more about the rules than I do.

I quit reading long before that.  The last one that I liked was The Legacy.  I think that I read the next two after that one, but I don't really remember much about them, other than the fact that they weren't very good.

Spacedal who likes to talk in third person, has a Spacedal Question. Spacedal has seen the first two original Star Wars movies. And she knows that when those movies came out that Jabba the Hut was just this fat man. But how is he a worm in the 3rd movie? Unless they used the fat man for a stand in and replaced him with the worm.

Spacedal probably should have asked her question in the regular Star Wars thread, not the triva thread.

In the original original trilogy, Jabba the Hut is mentioned in the first two films, but is never actually seen until Return of the Jedi.

No, it's 5 in the movies.

Anakin lost all his limbs, and Luke lost his right hand. That's 5.

EU wise, Vader also lost one of his mechanical hands to the Emperor when the first Death Star kerploded... presumably, he can still feel pain through those things.
