PTL Open: Quarterfinal Match

At the end of April, Toronto hosted the PTL Open, a 2-day fan-run X-Wing convention that featured a special format main event and many casual side events.  For the main event, players were required to build 3 separate lists and at the start of each match, secretly choose which of the 3 lists they would play that round.  You can find all of the Swiss round matches at our youtube channel ‘vttvlive’, but we’ve begun to upload the playoff matches!  This format has encouraged some very offbeat lists and while the skill level of players at this event is high, the matches you’ll see are those you wouldn’t normally expect from a ‘regular’ x-wing competition.

The Emperor is Darth Vader’s Father, According to Lucas

Oh boy, where to begin.

It has come to light that George Lucas, in his original script for Episode III, had another  “I am your father scene.” This time it was the Emperor telling Anakin that he’s his dad.

Here is what Palpatine said in the original script,

“I have waited all these years for you to fulfill your destiny. I arranged for your conception. I used the power of the Force to will the midichlorians to start cell divisions that created you.” Continue reading The Emperor is Darth Vader’s Father, According to Lucas
