Interesting. The only force-immune beasts I remember were from KotOR (their name escapes me). Are we talking pre-Phantom Menance, or post-Return of the Jedi?

Yeah, I've put off reading it for a while.
I'm still reading a bunch of standalone novels.
But the post-Return of the Jedi books are apparently really intense.

I can't give an accurate asswssment, as it's been easily 5 years since I read them all. My mindset and judgement of the quality of novels was quite different at that age.

Basically, the story behind my username is that I stole it from a friend in middle school because I thought it was cool and have used it ever since.

For some reason, I'd always assumed that your username was a Redwall reference.

And...now that I think about it, that was a pretty dumb assumption.
Truth be told, Redwall was one of my favorite series.  Gotta love those Dibbuns!  Not a dumb assumption -- I give you permission to call me Slagar  ;D

I used to love the Redwall books, but that was about ten years ago, and I don't remember a whole lot anymore.  So...this is awkward... but I don't get any of those references you just made.  Sorry.  I'm a terrible Redwall fan.

Silent Fox just reminded me of Marlfox, I guess.

Wow, now I really want to read Redwall stuff again.

Is the skill to create disaster after disaster,
And when I try to stop it,

And this is why I am called,

Randal Graves . . . just a great fuckin' movie character.  Oddly enough, this is the only place I have that user name.  Everywhere else it's AzOutcast.  The name somewhat clashes with the avatar, but the photoshop was too good to pass up.

I wanted a neat name. Sin's a good place to start. Though the shortening to "Sinth" has ended up more popular than "Sin" which I like anyway.

Yeah, I hadn't seen the Clerks movies until after I'd been on DTF for a few years.  The character name seemed oddly familiar to me.

Then I was browsing the forum and suddenly it hit me.  :lol

Mine's from Final Fantasy... there's an attack called Silent Voice in FFVIII and FFIX

Been using it since I was about 15, back in 2003.

X can be construed as a symbol for "Christ", and my name is Christian. "Christ"+ian = Xian. So if you ever have troubles pronouncing it, just think "Christian" (I'm looking at you, Nick :P)

And L is the first letter of my last name :tup
So you couldn't tell me this that time I asked you over PSN?!?! I hate you!!



Mine's pretty dumb, I was walking by the living room in my house and they had this Disney movie playing, Anastasia, where one of the characters is name Demetrio in the Spanish translation, so I changed it to Dimitrius and I've been using it ever since.

I was putting together a 3D animation video for a school project, and though it would be cool to have some sort of company name at the beginning.  Since I had already put together the text intro on a red/orange gradient background, it looked like flowing fire, so I came up with "Fiery Winds" and turned in a "Fiery Winds Production".
