Threat of Peace, Issue #16 Sucks this week! Bioware has said October should see some juicy updates. So I won’t really comment on Threat of Peace, Issue #16 Instead I will look at The 7 Forms of Lightsaber Combat. So the 7 forms are as fallows… “Form I: Shii-Cho “Way of the Sarlacc” or “Determination Form” to be used against more than one foe. Form II: Makashi “Way of the Ysalamir” or “Contention Form” Form III: Soresu “Way of the Mynock” or “Resilience Form” Form IV: Ataru “Way of the Hawk-Bat” or “Aggression Form” Form V: Shien / Djem So “Way of the Krayt Dragon” or “Perseverance Form” Form VI: Niman “Way of the Rancor” or “Moderation Form” Form VII: Juyo / Vaapad “Way of the Vornskr” or “Ferocity Form” “quoted from Wookiepedia.. ———————————Finn, personally uses what we at Jen’Jidai call D-Form.

Star Destroyer Umbrella!?

It may not be real, but at least in your dreams it prevents the rain from making you wish you wore a stormtrooper helmet that day. These aren’t the rain drops you’re looking for. Introducing ‘The Star Wars Star Destroyer Umbrella’. A unique triangular shaped umbrella that folds up just like any other ordinary umbrella. But unlike other umbrellas, this one can withstand the force of a hurricane. Or an attack of a rebel fleet. In space. The handle is a similar material to the graphite shaft of a golf club, the waterproof fabric is adhered tightly to the frame and all this awesomeness actually weighs less than a golf umbrella with the coolness factor of 100. And when I say coolness factor I mean factor in the chances of never seeing a woman’s genitals ever again. Unfortunately the Star Destroyer Umbrella is just at concept stage here at OneMoreGadget…

What was your biggest hurdle in making the move to an MMO? (Annache) Blaine Christine: I think really it comes down to scope. Obviously it’s much, much bigger; we’ve talked a lot about how each class has their own story and each of those stories is essentially a full game. It’s literally 100s of hours of story, questing and all of the secondary activities. So when you factor that in with…
