2021.10.22 09:16 AlphaBladeYiII I finished Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, and it's one of the best Star Wars books I've ever read.

It was hands down my favorite Yoda in literally anything. The author nailed Yoda in a way no other writer has Imo.
Yoda's advice to Anakin in RotS usually gets a lot of hate, but I think a part of that is because we look at it from Anakin's prospective. People tend to forget that Yoda is 800 years old, meaning he's outlived everyone he has ever cared about except Luke. Remember Order 66? Seeing every jedi he trained and knew die? Yoda has went through several of those. Detachment wasn't a luxury or a choice for Yoda. It was a necessity. But then we get a passage like this one:

Teach me about pain, think you can?” Yoda said softly. “Think the old Master cannot care, mmm? Forgotten who I am, have you? Old am I, yes. Mm. Loved more than you, have I, Padawan. Lost more. Hated more. Killed more.” The green eyes narrowed to gleaming slits under heavy lids. Dragon eyes, old and terrible. “Think wisdom comes at no cost? The dark side, yes—it is easier for them. The pain grows too great, and they eat the darkness to flee from it. Not Yoda. Yoda loves and suffers for it, loves and suffers.
Through it all, Yoda still cared for each and every one of his students. We see that when he goes out of his way to redeem Dooku despite the great risk to himself and to the war. It was probably Dooku's refusal that caused Yoda to believe that "once you choose the dark side, forever does it dominate your destiny".
We also see his uncanny wisdom and empathy as he guides everyone in just the right way. From Dooku, to Jai, to Scout. But more importantly, Sean Stewart incorporates an often forgotten aspect of Yoda. He's an absolutely hilarious troll. Yoda made me laugh and cry more than I thought possible in this book. Too many writers in this period write Yoda as a super serious general and forget that we lover him because he's a lovable troll. (Tom Taylor also wrote him as a lovable troll in Treasure of the Dragonsnakes, which is one of the reasons it's my favorite star wars one-shot comic)
spoilers from now on
. .
Dooku was also great, and I don't think I ever saw him that conflicted. The way he used Anakin and Obi-Wan's arrival as an excuse to attack Yoda made believe that he hated how Yoda made him feel about himself. Much like Vader, he doesn't think he can go back.
I also loved all the supporting cast. Leem was a sweet, motherly jedi and her death hit me like a brick wall. I envisioned the gruff Jai Maruk as Chiwetel Ejiofor. Whie and Scout were also great and I didn't miss the irony of Whie and Anakin's embrace in the end. Poor Whirrey's death was also very sad.
Overall definitely one of the best standalone star wars books.

It's Midnight Grove event, and the 2 times I've tried playing killer I get a 10 minutes loading screen ending with "a player disconnected" except I'm pretty sure that's not what happened. Anyone else ?

I want my 3 hrs back. It was nothing but interpersonal drama. It is a child's Armageddon science fiction. 3 hours and why barely any aliens. If apple didn't lock the ratings on YouTube and IMDb I would give it a negative quadrillion.
Sorry just need to rant. You start these shows hoping for aliens and it is all drama. Jeez.

Hello, new to Chitubox and wondering why this keeps happening. I try and splice a file and it takes a while and instead of the disired file type it becomes a TMP file. I've had it done successfully on other files, is there a way to fix this issue?

2021.10.22 09:16 Foxglovenectar You are so gloriously weird my boy!

Most people think toddlers are hard work. And yes, yes they are....but my one is hands down the most fascinating, odd and magnificent creature I have come across in my 34 years of being.
Here are two of todays examples:-
He had a total shit fit today because, essentially, I wouldnt let him poke a spider to death. Said spider thought - "bollocks to this Im doing a runner" and at the sight of the spider uncurling and scampering to salvation, he immidiately halts the epic melt down, jumps up with his hands in the air whilst laughing (verging on gasping hysteria) chanting 'LEGS, LEGS, LEGS' . Tears of utter sorrow turn into crazed delight in a matter of seconds. Just as quickly as the chant occurs, a swift rendition of a garbled song about a speed boat follows.....I am now imagining his fantastic vision - A chuffed and long legged spider atop a speedboat cruising into the sunset that is the dusty crevice of our bedroom window.
In addition to these strange and sudden mood shifts, he has developed a passionate aversion to nappies and trousers. Which is rather inconvenient considering he has zero understanding of the latrine and its purpose.
When asked to pop something on to sheath his modesty, he simply maintains direct and intense eye contact whilst reversing out of the room we occupy, taking slow and exaggerated steps backward toward the door frame and upon reaching it he whispers 'buuuuuh bye' and proceeds to run into another room at full speed whilst shouting 'EEEEEEEEEEE' like hes a warlock charging into battle?!?!
I am left feeling utterly bemused by these strange exchanges. I mean, basically, he has won an argument that hasn't even happened by just being weird?
What a gloriously odd little chap he is. Keep up the good work son.

Hello! I would like to know if there's a place you can recommend to get bulk and tokens, my idea is to make some introductory decks so people interested in the game can test it at my local store, I want to help out spread the love for the game since there aren't many stores that carry it on my country.
Also, I don't know how feasible is the idea.

2021.10.22 09:16 hambogosando 35 [M4F] Making Coffee and Looking For Company

We made it to the end of another week! I’m working from home today and looking for someone to help distract me and pass the time with.
A little bit about me I suppose: I love the outdoors, I love music, I love to travel. I’ve driven across the country back and forth several times, pizza is one of my favorite foods, and I just finished Midnight Mass and Squid Game. I’m also always watching Simpsons reruns. I’m also generally easy going and easy to get along with I think, open minded, and up for just about anything.
If you’re easy to talk to, down to earth, and hey maybe up to flirt a little even- send me a message and let’s keep each other entertained.

2021.10.22 09:16 Soyweiser Bug, picking non totemist ancestors as a new totemist convert, bonus goes away on loading save.

Just a FYI, if you switch into totemist, you can pick old non totemist leaders as ancestors, and they will give their first tier as a bonus. Only the icon will be a question mark, and if you save and load this bonus is gone, and the slot is locked permanently giving nothing.
For example, here is my previous ruler, who I just picked as an ancestor after loading a save. And here is he after saving and loading.
