4. Force Feedback
You can download Xacter’s most awesome Heroics spreadsheet here.
Johnny (Born to eat bacon) referred us to “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans”, an awesome Star Wars paraody/homage video.
Ivilon believes that Rey’s look from the upcoming Episode 8 “The Last Jedi” is very Old Republic, and looks a lot like Bastila Shan.
However, Evan believes that while Daisy Ridely has the face for it, the outfit is totally different.
