Summary:

Mitth’raw’nuruodo, a Chiss Imperial Officer distant emotions with a cool reflective to lead his sector fleet in the Galactic Empire. His strategies and tactics work better when he is devoid of emotion, as taught by the Chiss Ascendancy House Nuruodo. He was exiled from his people as punishment for an outburst he had in Chiss Space. Or at least that is what is on the official record. Found on an undeveloped planet, the Galactic Empire embraced him and he rose through the Imperial ranks to a Grand Admiral. Life is lonely at the top. It bores him, the people, the slow pace, the loneliness. His personal studies in art and antiquities brought him creature-comfort joy. Then he met a young Rebel woman, a Mandalorian, an artist that excites his fascination in the galaxy and gives him room to breathe, creatively. A fiery passion ignites his desires. The Chiss thought the Ascendancy excise those genes from the gene pool through eugenics. Turns out his desires for community are not genetic. His desires expand and reverberate continuously in the Force.

Mr. David Oyelowo And Our Block Reasons

In People Magazine “Couch Surfing” Mr. Oyelowo who voices AGENT ALEXSANDR KALLUS in STAR WARS REBELS shares that Star Wars fans disappointment that he voices this ANIMATED character. The animated character appears differently than Mr. Oyelowo — ie The character is white and Mr Oyelowo is Black.

https://peopletv.com/video/david-oyelowo/

Of course that should NEVER matter. One is a very REAL PERSON, PROFESSIONAL AWARD WINNING ACTOR and the other is a fabricated animation in the mind of artists. What brought this character to life is Mr. Oyelowo’s creative voice performance. Nothing else brings any animated character than a professional voice actor’s performance. To deny his ability is to be racist and bigoted.

There is bigotry in Star Wars fandom. We saw it best with Ahmed who voiced and CG MoCAPped JAR JAR BINKS. The harassment he endured nearly caused him to commit suicide. Only until recently has he opened up to speak about it.

While it is not Disney’s or Lucasfilm’s fault at the hands of racist and bigoted fans, it has proven very difficult to quell ignorances and cognitive biases of some ugly sides of fandom.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 has been at the attacks by bigots since 2008. We have fended of bigots in ways at first that seems cruel, but when encountered, the sufferers begin to understand why we did what we did. From a small business standpoint, our acts are justified, because we cannot afford a large lawyer representation. Disney and Lucasfilm does not support our efforts. Their people were told lies about us and are fearful of our ire. But our ire was in place for our use until their own workers incurred utterly racist and bigoted attack for the last few years. All the while, our attacks are minimal.

We have our hate on our SENATOR YEMAJA pages.

So here is our small business auto block procedures:

Any post or comment that uses profanity without cause directed to us. We delete, sometimes report, and ban the attacker. Those attacks typically look like “what the f*ck is this sh*t” and use of hateful real life epithets like the N-word.

Massive number of posts when we have never interacted with you. Those attacks appear like more that 3-4 posts. We are not rated to deal with your stalker obsessions. We do not DM people we do not feel comfortable around.

Tag team attack. We don’t play that. Those attacks appear like @1, @2, @3-10 on a post that could be about art from a famous artist.

Telling us what to post — you don’t pay for our accounts, you don’t tell us how to post to it. Who died and made you gods? These attacks look like “you cannot say that. You can only post ____________”

Most of character accounts are in character. They will block on any attempts to learn who the MUNDANE is behind the account. These characters are stuck on social media, that is it. No more, no less. Forcing exposure is OUTING what SWAG77 is trying to do. If a user does not agree, move on, there are other accounts. We find irrational attacks, we will block. These attacks look like, “so you hate the [real life political issue today]?” to gain a confirmation of their beliefs than what we are doing — which is Star Wars.

It is our pages, our user names and involves what we are doing, and deciding to force us to admit something from long ago or unrelated to performance will get you blocked and we will move one. With that, we give you an in kind directive and you get snarky, you are ruining our ability to do business on our streams. Either you stay into the agreement or walk away. If you refuse — such as saying I can post what I want freedom of speech–we will block you. We do not go to anyone’s feeds intentionally to ruin their process, but for you to feel entitled to our posts and your not paying us, it is better for us to silence your bad behavior. What this attack looks like is the user intrudes into the conversation uninvited and speaks outside of the primary post, the user account request redirection and the attacker say “free speech, you should feel one over the other, that hasn’t been what I have expected–” the issue is it separates from the primary goal which is Star Wars online.

We do not sell your stuff. Overriding our ad links, will get you blocked. We have affiliates that we meet our business goals, like a fan table at Star Wars Celebration. When you interfere with our money, illegally, we just block since going after you legally cuts out of our budgets.

Refusal to read our blogs and not staying on topic. We are not only doing this for you. We are organized into a Star Wars fan group to portray our fandom respectfully. Just because you do not like one post is your decision. These attacks generally look like “I am going to UNLIKE this page because I hate XYZ Star Wars Established Canon Disney or otherwise” — you will be banned, your comment will be reported and/or erased. We do not care about your approach, it means you failed to read our blog notes on how we perform our MUSES and that we perform under a storyline arc. If you aren’t going to read and respect that, then we feel our accounts aren’t for your interactions.

Potential SWAG77 Storyline In 2014

When the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 roleplay performs, we plan our performances to reflect our fan made stories and headcanons.

This storyline was the strengthen and embolden the presence of MARA JADE as a character in STAR WARS REBELS. She would be ~13 years old. We were trying develop key personality traits of a 13 year old versus the adult version.

She was to infiltrate the REBELS and destroy them. That did not happen and in the Disney Lucasfilm version, it’s totally different. As SWAG77 we are FINE with that, but at least we attempted to write a story, than complained how bad we think Star Wars is and join toxic fandom.

Some toxic fans do not care about our vision because of Dunning-Kruger effects. They think they know ALL ABOUT STAR WARS and no one knows more than them. These fans also perform in GODMOD ways which KILLS roleplay and destroys public performances. It’s worse than a TROLLS treatment, because a TROLL just disagrees; whereas a GODMODDER is in on the performance game and sells out all the secrets to the public. You can trust a TROLL to be an asshole. You can NEVER TRUST A GODMODDER!

 

The point of this story arc was to get ships better than the Empire’s Star Destroyers and anything else they crafted together. Of course, the Rebels would never have that technology and that is kind of the point of the story as a lead in to A New Hope. The Rebel Alliance heard stories about a new ship under construction of immense power than no one had ever seen (of course that is the Death Star) and they felt if they had better starships to fight against this “unknown entity” they would be fine against this weapon. They were wrong.

The KUATIS built the hyperdrive engines for the Imperial Star Destroyers. The Emperor sensed some malfeasance by the KUATIS, he wanted a secret way in to their very private royal family. The Sultan’s grand-daughter to the SHESH family, VIQI SHESH was having her 6 (or age appropriate) year old birthday party and top galactic celebs were to be invited. Of course the Emperor could not make it. But he sent MARA JADE to go undercover with her REBEL friends and see what the SHESH’s were doing.

Of course there back-up plans to back-up plans. Of course there are other forces at stake here to show off to the Emperor who is a sadist and enjoys conflict. He gets off on conflict. But here’s a KID’S version of a back-up plan.

Come to find out, that the “hyperfuel” itself was being ORGANICALLY SYNTHESIZED AND FULLY PROCESSED by an unknown seller from the OUTER RIM off the TINGEL ARM…

The MARA JADE team managed to steal an entire slat of hyperfuel and put it on ALDERAAN — which feeds into another headcanon we have — another reason why the Emperor destroyed Alderaan was because it was infected by the YUUZHAN VONG BIOTS!

Here our touchpoints in the roleplay that we needed to perorm and prove.

1. The Rebels are fighting to get a ship in space. But aren’t able to do it. They have to retreat.

2. Then a surprise communique invites Mara to a special birthday party for the Shesh’s on Kuat.

3. If Mara doesn’t go to the “princess party” she will be ratted out. But if Mara goes to there, she has to take Ezra and Sabine definitely and possibly Hera as her “governess”.

4. But while they’re there, they discover there are plans for a new hyperdrive engine. So they can steal it and get it to Alderaan so they can retrofit it for their own starships.

As SWAG77 we never got around to do this roleplay due to a racist performer having Dunning-Kruger and hating aspects of Star Wars.

You cannot HATE and convincingly roleplay perform Star Wars unless you are trying to be a MARY SUE or GARY STU. We find most people LIVE through their roleplay characters rather than be themselves. Our research after 10 years is a roleplayer’s sociality suffers in real life. It hurts their education, their careers and their family life. It is an unsustainable personality. It is why SWAG77 auditions, perform test cases and re-writes in the draft performances. Why SWAG77 rehearses and restricts membership only to trained people to reflect our work. It is the standard we set and we think people can reach them if they want to.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 MARA JADE campaign could not be performed after our failure to understand our primary mission.

We perform strong, accurate and authentic stories on social media to reflect the spirit and vision of all Star Wars.

Where Star Wars fans start.

Perhaps another roleplaying group can take our efforts and do better. SWAG77 doesn’t mind retcons or re-writes when we know. We just want attribution for our efforts.

The is a tiny snippet into what we really do in SWAG77.

Quote

Perhaps we, as a galaxy, should focus on addressing & resolving the issues for which #Rebels are *actually* taking a knee (hint: it’s NOT remotely because…they disrespect our flag/galaxy/military AT ALL) and worry less about silencing those protests. Believe them when they say it’s about…ending systemic xenophobia and the unlawful murder of Aliens at the hands of Stormtroopers. Stopping THAT should take precedent.

The Operative  by CC_77

The Emperor wants:

1) ISB to suspend Alexsandr Kallus for life for a peaceful desertion from the Empire while in battle;

2) Hutts to imprison 3 Outer Rim teens for life unless one of their dads is nicer to him, except Princess Leia of Alderaan;

3) Courts to prosecute and imprison Senator Mon Mothma;

4) Carida to vote for a Jedi that turned to the Dark Side.

Got it.

And so Outbound Flight. Something I told casuals to read a month ago. If you don’t know who Parck is or why Thrawn knows who Anakin Skywalker is, you’d better get Outbound Flight and read it and stop making up bullshit metas. Http://bit.ly/ThrawnStore1

Parck wasn’t in Outbound Flight, he was in Mist Encounter. Some of the Outbound Flight editions have Mist Encounter at the end but not all of them.

And Anakin and Obi-Wan left Outbound Flight (per Palpatine’s “request”) before Thrawn encountered it, so actually no, Outbound Flight doesn’t explain Thrawn knowing Anakin.

That is not the point of this post at all. You missed it completely.

Do not disabuse yourself into thinking what your admonishment of me in public is seen as fair fandom rather than your personal vendetta. I know who my supporters were during the Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebel campaign, and I also know you lacked participation because you hate fans like me. So this oversight of mine in such a public forum is your fetishizing fandom and aggrandizement. It fails to support the current Star Wars material from Disney, which is what I am trying to do.

@thrawnisbae

“Personal Vendetta”? I have literally never even spoken to you before and I have no idea who you are other than some blogger who is giving people wrong information about what is and is not in the Outbound Flight novel.

It’s not even the first time I’ve seen you get information about Thrawn incorrect but this time I felt it was worth speaking up. Don’t get your hackles up about something that is nothing more than correcting something that you didn’t get right. And also as to your persecution complex if you want to take credit for Thrawn being on Rebels, I really do not give a rat’s ass.

You want to know where I was during your little campaign? I was working a full-time job to support myself like actual grown-ups do, which did not leave me time to screw around on social media. But I wouldn’t expect you to know about that, since my copies of the Thrawn trilogy are probably older than you are.

So get a grip and stop getting paranoid about anyone who does not agree with you even when you’re flat out wrong.

You haven’t even tried to reach out to me. You picked the wrong day to act like you so much better than me as your first post speaking to me respectfully on Tumblr.

You chose to put me down as a Star Wars fan, than to help me up and you made it public. That’s cruel. And you did it during a day when I’m suppose to be excited as a Star Wars Thrawn fan.

Why are you even here?

All my information can be found on the front matter of my blog and through my archives: http://getthrawnin.tumblr.com/archives and all my content can be searched.

I tire of fans that want to hurt me when all I am doing is posting, right or wrong information, the fact is I’m posting content rather than yelling at people who are just trying to write and share their Star Wars fandom.

Information for our entire social media can be found on http://swag77.com

Thank you. This conversation from our performance accounts is done.
