*Throws new copy of Shadows of the Empire, which arrived just this morning, out the window* Rolling Eyes Razz


To what extent did this really happen? Was there a new copy of SOTE, and was it thrown out the window?

P.S. Dash Rendar is my homeboy.

Edit: Upon doing a google image search for "Dash Rendar homeboy" to see if such a T-shirt exists, the first result is a picture of Dash from the video game that I posted in another thread, presumably the first result back due to my having posted it and expressing that Salacious B. Crumb is my homeboy in my signature.

Well, the book is fifteen years old so I don't really think that this came as such a shock to Life. Smile Seeing how he's always kidding around I think it's safe to say that there's probably no new copy of SOTE and if there was then it almost certainly wasn't thrown Wink

It did, actually Razz . Okay, let me first point out that I'm not annoyed or angry at Sol, it's merely that I don't like spoilers for books I haven't read yet. But since, for some reason, the fact that I've recently received a copy of SOTE is being called into question (seriously, of all the things to call me out on, that's the one you pick?!) here's a picture of my receipt:

I can't actually prove that it was thrown out the window. During such actions, I don't stop to think, 'oh, I should take a picture of this, both for posterity and to use as evidence in a trial by my peers'. Wink

Just because one thing was mentioned doesn't imply the whole story was spoiled

Oh, I just don't like any spoilers whatsoever. Doesn't mean it spoils the whole thing.

Yeah spoilers can get in the way sometimes.

That picture looks faked! I'm sending it up to the crimelab to see if it wasn't photoshopped! Twisted Evil

Nah, just kidding Wink I believe you Very Happy

I really liked the Dark Woman, An'ya Kuro. She has an intriguing story.

Did you read "Extinction" from Star Wars Tales?

Ok, thanks to IR2, we can resurrect this thread.

Now my whole point for that other thread was I ran across a Sy Snootles poster on StarWars.com and I was wondering if anyone knows of Sy Snootles fans. Honestly I've never heard of anyone who was a fan of Sy Snootles. Do they really exist?

Though sometimes said spoiler opens our eyes to things we may have missed on our own Wink

True, but for my money they can open my eyes to things I've missed after I've had the opportunity to miss them Razz .

I used to occasionally seek out spoilers. When Legacy of the Force came out, I was still buying paperbacks only. So when Sacrifice was released, and I knew "someone" died, and I knew Jacen took his Sith name, but I also knew that I wouldn't be reading the story for a whole year, I thought it best to just spoil it for myself. So I went on Wookieepedia and read that:

For me, knowing the end isn't a terrible thing. It's the journey that's important. Like when watching an old episode of Star Trek that you hadn't seen before, and it looks like Kirk is in so deep that he can't possibly survive, but you know he survives, since he appears in every subsequent episode and 7 movies. The fun is getting there.

Ran across this podcast interview with Stephen Stanton (TCW voice actor for Mas Amedda, Tarkin, and a few others), he mentioned his favorite obscure Star Wars character is Lobot. Thought that was pretty cool.

I think that Master Zao is one of the best EU characters ever. He's a blind Jedi walking round the Galaxy by the Force, like a leaf in the wind making (aparently bad Rolling Eyes ) soup. What is not to like about him.
