The Marquis of Athlum

This is my first attempt at art nouveau, featuring my favourite young lord, David Nassau. I’m including a close up of the centre filigree on the Gae Bolg because I drew it… and then covered it

Lord Scourge on Makeb

grumpy-poo:

Does Lord Scourge say or do anything interesting during the Makeb questline? Both my Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Knight are finished with their class quests, and ready to start the Makeb quests. What little I saw of them on Youtube wasn’t impressive, and the only reason I can think of to bother is for companion dialogue.

The companions do not talk during quest cut scenes on Makeb the way they do in class stories.  They do have points on the map in Makeb where they talk if they’re out and you run over the right spot.

If you don’t want to bother here is nearly all of Scourge’s voice stuff from walking around Makeb and everywhere else I’ve found that he says something.  Possible Makeb spoilers kind of?  I try to identify the places he talks so you can get them yourself if you like.

SHIT I’M GOING TO BE NEXT ON KABE’S COFF LIST

<deleted the gif>

You are the only person pressuring me to do their drawing.

You are the only person who has not submitted a reference for their OC.

What’s up with that?

kabeone said: Varrel is one of my favorite characters.

Thanks!  One of those “you need to write because:” things was floating around the other day; one of the items was “you will create someone’s favorite character.”  So, wow.  Really thanks.

I love the pictures you’ve drawn of him for me.  The one was with Vashutarl (and I love the Kendo influence in this one) for one of the COFF projects was great.  I can’t seem to find the waltz one on your blog so I’m reproducing it.  It captured Varrel’s relationship with Vette perfectly.

I loved that he was older (Entrance Exam) but a master of Yovshin which explains his survival, I loved the “King and Pawn vs King" explanation regarding the Quinncident, I loved that his relationship with Vette was not romantic but still important (Larvae the follow up to Vette’s personal mission was so so good). I pretty much love all the things.

I am so looking forward to this season! And with the darker take on the Doctor, I feel that palette is most appropriate. Excellent work Kabe!

Thanks!  If I had picked out the palettes myself I probably wouldn’t have done nearly so well.  For whatever reason the palette meme fit perfectly more often than not.  

Also! That was my last doctor and I’m out of asks.  I kind of want to do the 100 palette one but that is terrifying and I am not sure if I should do just the palette or do palette plus poses and I’m not sure anyone would be interested because I’d prefer to do NPCs/Actors/Comics rather than OCs.

Anyone have any opinions on the 100 palette meme?

This one is OK. It’s just a cute art of Lord Zash XD

That actually doesn’t mean his account wasn’t compromised.

Yeah, I got the same message as well, though I stupidly went to look. If you get the same message from me later, it’s not me.

dA ~should~ be safe enough unless one of the page ads has a virus but I block ads and have pretty strong protection against that stuff anyway.  I was just thinking someone was trying to boost their views.

I mean, this is tumblr.  If you want to share an image you post it on your blog with credit.  Then you tag people that you want to see it.  dA has a tumblr share button even.  

they just wanted to share a funny art? I got this message too lol

When people who never send me messages suddenly send me messages with no words except a link, I assume they have been hacked.  Which is why I didn’t send the question privately.

the-cyanide-exploder why did you send me this?

the-cyanide-exploder why did you send me this?

… wait, have you been doing the Doctors in the appropriately-numbered palettes all this time and I’m just now noticing?

"It made sense at the time" is something of a motto for me.

I'd like to be certain on it before incorporating spaceship stuff into my Rp because the days/hours thing would be damn convenient if it were true.

I don’t have any sources on that

Hyperdrive travel in all of the EU and the times it takes to travel the hyperspace lanes have never been really discussed in depth, and the movies are even worse than that.

Never seen anything about it in SWTOR officially.

It would still depend on how far you’re going though, because travel from say, Coruscant to Alderaan is only going to take days at most, whereas travel from Hoth to Oricon is going to probably take weeks at least.

There were hyperspace travel tables in the Star Wars RPG (that they don’t print anymore I think) someone was kind enough to post the tables on the forum.  

The Edge of the Empire RPG also puts average duration of hyperspace travel times at:

Within a sector: 10-24 hrs
Within a region: 10-72 hrs
Between regions: 3 days to 1 week (though whether or not that meant our week or star wars week not sure)
Across the galaxy: 1-3 weeks

My table is from the beta edition of the rulebook though so not sure if it’s correct.

I forgot entirely about those travel tables.

Granted, it still depends a bit on if you’ve got a shitty hyperdrive or if you’re flying the Millenium Falcon, too, especially on longer trips where any delays/stops/differences in speed add up more.

Thanks for the addition, Kabe!

Also, keep in mind that SF writers have no sense of scale. You can take that table and then, if you can figure out exactly how fast a hyperdrive lets you go past lightspeed, you can then back into the size of the galaxy.

I suspect the numbers are off by orders of magnitude but I haven’t done the math.

Someone - it may have been in the movies, and is thus canon - mentioned that the Falcon can do .5 past lightspeed. Which, to me, tells me 1.5c is the top speed of the Falcon.

Which gives us a top speed of 449,688,687 m/s, assuming 1.5 c as a top speed.

Converting to meters/hour gives us 1,618,879,273,200 m/hr.

(PLEASE, someone check my math!)

Given the minimum range of 10h to go across a sector, you’re looking at 16,188,792,730,000 meters

One light-year is 9,460,528,400,000,000 meters.

The Milky Way Galaxy  for reference, is roughly 100K light-years across.

Solo says .5 past light speed but I assume it’s more of a rating like horsepower or “muscle strand” (where the actual meaning has nothing to do with horses or muscles) or some other kind of value like how cars are rated on how fast they can go from 0-60mph.  The charts for the RPG and most other stuff I’ve seen assume it’s a quality rating.  If you look at the chart posted in the forum, Hyperdrive is a time multiplier so .5 is the best you can get. (yet has nothing to do with actual speeds)

If any kind of galactic empire or republic were to actually function with trade routes etc, travel speeds would be well past 1x10^6 c.
