The idea of using the sun like this is a fantastic idea.I am not as well read but I don't recall anything using the sun to this extent. That would be a fantastic world to try and comprehend, game or even write about! Go to Comment
The crux of the storytelling and gaming would center around trying to survive in the realm of a mad solar god, and how the changing sun would affect human interactions. It would very likely be Mad Max like as a single bout of madness through the growing season could destroy crops and forests with great ease, making survival difficult at best. Things like war, and cities become questionable when an army in the field can be slaughtered by a green sunrise Go to Comment
I would venture to guess that the Resistance/Rebels want legitimacy and state recognition, and today suicide attacks aren't heroic or brave but are instead the calling card of terrorists and religious extremists.
I'm sure hyperdriving a Mon Cal cruiser through the Death Star would have done damage, it would have reduced the Rebels to insurgents and terrorists.
The A-wing taking out the Executor class in RotJ was accidental success while Holdo's run was desperate, and the rest thing she could do with the Raddus to save rebel lives. Go to Comment
Yes, you could do all of those things, but that would take Star Wars out of being Space Opera/Space Fantasy and move it into the realm of Military fiction. Military fiction doesn't have room for X-wings, Jedi knights, the Force, or light sabers.
Death Star? We just need a sufficiently large hyperspace capable penetrator and we can blow a hole through your planet, sort of like the Sun Crusher plotline, but way less cinematic and much more brutal and pragmatic.
You could use droid- or robot-controlled ships for the same effect, or even call it a hyperspace-capable torpedo. You actually don't have to have humans on suicide vessels, no? My point is, if you could hyperspace-jump (ordnance or just old boats) into an opponent's ship, it would be a mechanised staple of space warfare. Go to Comment
What if a mage passes his powers on to his firstborn son, and a female mage to her first daughter, leaving the parent POWERLESS? A plain mortal, a sorcerer no longer, all wizardly might gone?
Or: what if a female wizard recieves the power of a mage who sires a child with her? Could lead to promiscuous witches and overly careful mages.
