This is my fault, but you can also blame Lilith for not discouraging me enough.

Exile: A New Hope
Exile II: The Empire Strikes Back
Exile III: Return of the Magi

Avernum 4: The Black Shade Menace
Avernum 5: Attack of the Generic Soldiers
Avernum 6: Revenge of the Slith

Aside from the bizarre appropriateness of the 4th and 6th titles, I note that the general relative opinions of each game and movie also correlate pretty decently.  (See, again, A4.)  Plus, both original trilogies received an updated rerelease before the second trilogy was released.

Oh my good lord. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time, not with tears in my eyes.

Thankyou. Thankyou so very much for this.

This is so amazing. I think Spiderweb has been permanently enriched by this.

You call out those two but not the entirely unaltered 2nd title?

Exile II is amazingly appropriate

If we go with the "Jar Jar is a Sith Lord mastermind" theory, then clearly Rentar-Ihrno.

Jar Jar / Rentar-Ihrno is scaringly fitting; I love it.

Could we bind any other characters together? Like, Lord Sidious and Gladwell?

And is Yoda Solberg or X? One of them is really old, and the other one really weird.

Yoda is a hermit and so is Solberg. I can't think of any particular character in Star Wars with a bizarre obsession with one, weird, pointless endeavor like X, but I haven't seen episodes 2, 3, or 7 and I haven't seen 1 since it was in the theaters.

I'll suggest Sidious as Garzahd, due to the backstory.  Gladwell is a pretty fresh arrival.

Obi Wan as Erika, due to powers, role, and sacrificial death.

Vader as... well, thinking about his breathing, maybe he should be Sss-Thsss.

EDIT: Actually, if Vader is Sss-Thsss, Sidious could be Grah-Hoth.  Hmm.

For that to work, wouldn't they have to keep bringing out new versions the first 3 to improve the visuals, but annoy the purists and...oh, yeah.  Huh.

But but but... The anvil spell isnt weird and pointless! It would have revolutionised magic had he not gone to the infernal realm. I mean firestorms are for weaklings... not for real hard core magicians.

Hi Owenrus, please keep in mind that all sorts of people come here and so we ask for family-friendly language.  Thanks!
