I'll confess something: I spent an absurd amount of money on the old Decipher Star Wars card game
in college, well more than I could afford. I built up a pretty solid collection, now entirely worthless ten years after Decipher lost their license to the Star Wars universe when Lucas wound up owning a portion of Wizards of the Coast
and shifting the card game license over to them, where it quickly foundered and died.
What's the point of that story? It doesn't really have one, aside from the fact that I picked up a shitload of Star Wars lore from the cards. You know that dude who looks a bit like a devil in the Cantina scene? Two big horns and fangs? His name is Labria, an information broker and spy who's frustrated that he has to live on Tatooine due to his shady past. The bartender who hates having blasters in his bar? He goes by Wuher, and wants to perfect his cocktail skills so that he can work for Jabba
as his personal bartender. Hell, I could probably name you detailed histories of each member of Max Rebo
's band if I had a gun to my head.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah: I'm a fucking dork. Join me
. Screened's wiki queue
system has been loaded up with heroes and villains from your favorite genre films and television series, which will let you help build out our wiki pages while also gaining extra points for your contributions. Won't you check it out and grab one of the tasks in there for yourself? It'd be fun! Wouldn't it be fun? I bet it'd be fun.
So it might be a bit late to get the best Spike quotes
in the system, but there's plenty of other characters to tackle (and, come to think of it, Spike could use a good biography). Take a look!
