    Star Wars is pretty lame and basic anyways so I don't think they can fuck up the movies too much.

    I think as long as they adapt something and don't try to make their own SW canon, they'll be cool.

    They should honestly just get Timothy Zahn (or: insert any number of legit EU writers) to start writing a new trilogy of canon books right now and then just have D&D adapt it. They seem like they excel at production and adaptation of existing source material but aren't exactly Shakesphere when it comes to their own material.

    "You killed hundreds of thousands of innocent lives"

    lol. That's funnier than the joke. They lost their train of thought halfway through an 8 word sentence.

    Pretty much, lol.

    I figure most people don't want to or care about learning how to use reddit anyways.

    I hope they literally arrest him for crimes against nerds everywhere.

    I'm actually surprised that his publisher hasn't rung his neck by now, but, if we were to believe GRRM is playing 3D chess, him waiting until the GoT series ends and Bloodmoon starts to begin to continue the series (like a tie in) would be pretty damn smart.
