Galactic Basics - A basic guide to the Star Wars universe

Recommended Posts


A new feature I would like to get going for GB is a series of basic guides to the Star Wars universe.

With a new trilogy on the way, there are likely to be new fans looking for an insight to Star Wars that they might not be able to glean simply by watching the films.

The first guide I'd like to write is about the Force, and give examples of dark and light powers, quotes from characters an other useful tidbits people might find good to know.

I have a few ideas already but if yo u think of anything that should be included, or ideas for other guides please leave your suggestions below!

It could be fun with all of the people starting to play Edge of the Empire, to have some sort of nod towards that.  One of our players in our group doesn't know much about the Star Wars universe and could use some guidance on other things that were going on during the original trilogy that wasn't covered in the movies.

    • Galactic Basic and the Aurebesh

      In a universe where a civilisation can span a galaxy, there needs to be a way to communicate clearly with friends (and enemies) across the stars. In the Star Wars universe this language is Galactic Basic, also known as Galactic Standard or simply 'Basic', which has it's own alphabet known as Aurebesh.
      Basic is spoken across the galaxy and was the primary langauge of the old Republic and the Galactic Empire, although it is not the only common language; some factions have their own official languages, such as Huttese which is used by the Hutts and is common within their territories. Wookiees, among other species, are unable to speak Basic due to their differing physiology but can still learn to understand it.
      You may have spotted some instances of the Aurebesh in the movies and other media and a lot of them, especially in newer media, can be translated. Luckily, the glyphs used in the aurebesh transliterate easily into English, as you can see in the images below.

    • Galactic Basic's birthday!

      Happy birthday GB! Happy birthday GB... etc etc
    • .com domain expiry

      Currently, Galactic Basic can be accessed via .net or .com domain names. During March 2014 GalacticBasic.com will be expiring due to lack of funding, therefore GalacticBasic.net will then be the only way to visit GB.

      If anybody currently uses the .com domain, we recommend you update your bookmarks as soon as possible to avoid inconvenience.

      Also, as hosting is also due to expire soon we still require donations as we are only halfway to meeting the funding target to renew hosting. We will post further details of this soon.
