Star Wars Help!
« on: May 16, 2005, 05:44:57 PM »
For a yet-undisclosed special project which I'll submit here if I ever finish it, I need some help by those who have kept up with the details of recent Star Wars films.  Here's what I need:

Names, armaments, and basic armor and speed details of all vehicles...mainly ground...from Episodes I, II, and possibly III.

Different types of troopers for the major factions.  For example, what exactly is an ARC trooper?  

Any other details you can give me about the fighting forces of the Seperatists and Republic.

Thanks!

What kind if project is this?  Maybe there is a website with everything you want, because going through all the EU books for all that would be a pretty big project itself.  If you are planning on using all the EU stuff on top of the three books, then just explaining Darth Maul's equipment involves getting into the whole history of the Sith.  So I'd try finding a website or something to see if someone else had already done such a list, in full or part, cause it would save a lot of time.  If not, I would start with the d20 star wars RPG books and try reading all the novels between episode I - II and II - III.  The Clone Wars series and the different video games could also be useful, but a lot less so.  And definatlly check out starwars.com, then have a lot of EU material.

www.starwars.com/databank will give you 80% of the info you want Mr. P, like who ARC troopers are and the different military forces and vheicles.  Only think it dosen't have is weight, speed and stuff like that but it dose list a vheicles weapons.  We could probaly make the rest up.

Sweet, I hadn't been to the official SW site forever.  I'll take a peek.

I'm not all that concerned about EU, just mainly what we see in the movie.

ARC troopers are EU, but ya they've got both.  There hasn't been many EP3 updates yet (ie stuff only in that film) but I think they're just waiting until after the movie comes out.

Thanks,  Eagle Prince and Sprig, that was really useful.

Man, the vehicles of Ep I and II are loaded with weaponry.  Balancing my project will be a bit tougher than intended, I think.

Actually it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

The man's frelling about with Savage Worlds again...
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Good guess, but no.

Actually, this should be in Table Top Games.  That's a big hint.

That is a tall order, but if you need anything specific, feel free to ask. If I don't know the answer I can find it for you.

There is a Clone Commander in Ep3 that has similar armor to what the ARC troopers wear.
