Wrong Section

Post by texanmarauder » 2017-12-13 02:57pm

just to throw this out there, star wars doesn't belong in the science fiction section. its not a sci fi. its a space opera. so everything in the "Pure Star Wars" section needs to be moved. :D :D :D :D :D

Space opera is a subset of SciFi and your trolling cuntishness is becoming desperate and blatant.

Oh do shut up, darling.

Star Wars is only not science fiction if you have a very narrow and arguably snobby definition of science fiction.

Edit: Although if anyone wants to make a (probably futile) attempt to make something substantive out of this thread, I suppose we could rehash the old argument over what exactly defines science fiction, as opposed to fantasy.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

What is the general feeling on early WEG Star Wars material? I found the original Roleplaying Game to be beautiful for its recognition of the importance of story. Indeed, a significant portion of the GM section is instructions on story spinning. By comparison, almost the entire 5E DM's Guide is (are?) additional rules.

Unfortunately, the books got steadily worse with time. Pretty much everything following the Sourcebook was going downhill in my opinion, though I do hold a special place in my heart for the Imperial Sourcebook.

You're welcome to have all the arguments you like on the classification or nature of the Star Wars stories, but site administration isn't up for debate.
