OOC - Rancor Pit (OoC Chat)
I think the backlash has more to do with the film not following the 'formula' and doing the unexpected. It wasn't all about fan service. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I can objectively say it was a good movie. I did enjoy it in spite of some disappointments. One thing to keep in mind is that Carrie had a lot of input on her lines. Leia using the Force to save herself could have used a little set-up since that was her first on-screen use. I also think the prequels (and to some extent the nixed EU) have trained us to expect that everything is connected. Everyone has an extensive background. Know what I mean? I still have a few mixed feelings, but I don't think it deserves all the hate. Seriously, all the complaints about Force Awakens are about it being a rehash, and it just cashes in on nostalgia. Now Last Jedi is too different, and it craps over all our nostalgia. For everyone saying it's worse than the prequels, really? Just, really?

A gaming group started in late 2005 when several members (from all over the world) came together on a long-running forum website called Plothook.net (formally known as Highmoon.net). Several games transformed from a by-the-book format to highly modified versions that became new hybrid systems with completely custom rules and abilities. Ten years later, these faithful players wanted to secure their work and their stories, becoming the basis of these forums.
