I believe Sakura and Kenshin are on their own for now. Separately of course....

 Very cool - notice the amount of work needed to turn crappy iron sand into usable metal and how many different specialists were involved at different stages of the process. I strongly suspect that I wouldn't have been able to manage the sharpening-over-water bit without losing fingers, even assuming I'd gotten that far with eyebrows remaining. ^_^

Oh hey, it's that time again! Our Christmas Trivia Quiz, a little late this year because 2016 has been terrible. But Star Wars themed in honor of Rogue One. Spoiler free (of course) because I don't want to ruin anyone's enjoyment of the movie (but also because I have not seen it yet).

Awards are as follows:
One correct answer = 1xp
Two correct answers = 3xp
(partial answers will be given partial credit)

I've eliminated the spoiler rewards because no one ever wants them ^_^

1) Felicity Jones, who plays Jyn Erso, had a very versatile acting career prior to Rogue One. Name three dead novelists associated with parts she has played in the past and what her roles were.

2) the Darth Vader breathing sound is a practical effect. How was it achieved?

3) Mon Mothma is best known for saying, "Many Bothans died to bring us this information." What was that information and how accurate was it?

4) Both Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin had lives prior to the Death Star. Under what circumstances and on what planet did they meet?

5) Which character has appeared in exactly seven (no more and no fewer) Star Wars films shown in theaters? (not counting Rogue One, of course)

6) Including the now non-canon EU novels, how many origin stories are there for the Death Star and when were they introduced?

7) Which character, originally created for the SW EU was recently confirmed as canon, what canon work includes him, and what were his (non-canon) last words?

8) Under what circumstances was the name Antilles first mentioned (from a real world perspective)?

9) In what other Sci-fi franchise film does a character from SW make a cameo appearance?

10) During the Death Star run, Luke Skywalker's call sign is most famously Red 5. But different adaptations give him different call signs. What other call signs does he have and where can you find them?

Final answers will not be accepted after January 20.

For all three of us. Because I'm feeling lazy. ;p

Lot of dead playwrights on that list ...

These are the answers that I had in mind when I wrote the questions, but if you have a correct answer that is not one that I had in mind, you still get credit. I know that’s how things have been before, but it never hurts to say so again.

I’ll have awards up tomorrow after reviewing people’s answers.

1) Felicity Jones, who plays Jyn Erso, had a very versatile acting career prior to Rogue One. Name three dead novelists associated with parts she has played in the past and what her roles were.

Author: Agatha Christie, Jones played Robina Redmond in the Doctor Who episode the Unicorn and the Wasp
Author: Charles Dickens, Jones played Nelly in the Charles Dickens biopic The Invisible Woman
Author: Jane Austen, Jones played Catherine Moreland in the 2007 adaptation of Northanger Abbey

2) the Darth Vader breathing sound is a practical effect. How was it achieved?

Scuba mask

3) Mon Mothma is best known for saying, "Many Bothans died to bring us this information." What was that information and how accurate was it?

The Emperor himself would be visiting the second Death Star. While accurate, it was a trap.

4) Both Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin had lives prior to the Death Star. Under what circumstances and on what planet did they meet?

Then Captain Tarkin was captured and taken by the separatist forces to the planet of Lola Sayu where Anakin was sent to rescue him.

5) Which character has appeared in exactly seven (no more and no fewer) Star Wars films shown in theaters? (not counting Rogue One, of course)

Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker appeared in The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, The Clone Wars, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi

6) Including the now non-canon EU novels, how many origin stories are there for the Death Star and when were they introduced?

Four: Death Star (novel), Attack of the Clones (film), Jedi Search (novel), Rogue One (film)

7) Which character, originally created for the SW EU was recently confirmed as canon, what canon work includes him, and what were his (non-canon) last words?

Grand Admiral Thrawn, Star Wars Rebels, “but it was so...artfully done.”

8) Under what circumstances was the name Antilles first mentioned (from a real world perspective)?

Captain Antilles was the captain of Princess Leia’s blockade runner.

9) In what other Sci-fi franchise film does a character from SW make a cameo appearance?

R2-D2 makes a cameo appearance in Star Trek (2009)

10) During the Death Star run, Luke Skywalker's call sign is most famously Red 5. But different adaptations give him different call signs. What other call signs does he have and where can you find them?

In the novelization, Luke’s call sign is Blue 5
In the Star Wars Storybook, Luke’s call sign is Gold 5

Hey boss, about the XP: I'm seeing two sets. Do I get both, or just one of them? The first seems a bit high, but I'll take it! ;p

Yup, got eaten by the Nothing. More seriously, I have two days before summer (still a teacher, and the end of year is ... busy) and my spouse is headed in for surgery (not an emergency, relatively routine). I'm still alive though, just...exhaused.

Ah, sweet! Still alive. :) You must not have gotten hit with as much snow as we did; my kid is still in school (nominally, if not mentally) until the 14th. :D
