Review: Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi

Charles Soule is a good writer and has done a solid job introducing all the basics of the High Republic, and it is a good starting point for this new Star Wars transmedia project. Light of the Jedi also a masterclass of detailed worldbuilding. However, the heroes lack characterization and they seem, at times, brainwashed. Unless you have been craving the Kennedy’s Camelot and Superhero!Jedi, this novel might make you roll your eyes a little bit. That said, if you are in the market for full-metal villains and wholesome laser sword heroics, Light of the Jedi might be just your jam.

Review: From a Certain Point of View – The Empire Strikes Back Anthology

As a whole, FACPOV – ESB is a resounding success. The volume is lovingly edited, sticking to the chronological order and geographical space of Episode V as much as possible and using every crevice, device, animal and minor character to explore forgotten areas and ignored themes.

Ar’alani, Warrior and Guardian

Characters like Ar'alani, who is both warrior and caregiver, general and friend, are more of what the world needs today and until the fight is won, may the warrior's fortune be with us all.

The Sims 4 – Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Review – Part 1

As a player, I'm not a fan of purely decorative items. Some simmers might find them helpful in creating atmospheres and such, but I am more curious about functional items that can inject some Star Wars-themed style and flair in regular gameplay.

Was Mandalore the Scottish Highlands of a Galaxy Far, Far Away?

One the events of Mandalore’s recent, painful past, The Great Purge, where the Empire killed and exiled many Mandalorians and took all of their Beskar, bears a resemblance to Scottish history and its turbulent relation with British rulers -- specifically, to the Battle of Culloden of 1746, the swansong of the ancestral Scottish clan structure.
