You'd think the galaxy would put an end to the entire Skywalker line. That family's caused more effing problems.

Please don't take this the wrong way.  Just came back from seeing the movie and I could tell by the third paragraph of the opening text roll that the movie was going to be lame.  Twice while I was watching it I felt compelled to leave the theater.  I hung in until the end and while the movie was filled with a good story about problem solving on the spot for our heroes there was something lacking. 

I just didn't get a sense to why the rebels ended up in the situation they were in after their huge success in the first movie. 

As for the major plot twists and surprises I won't spoil it for anyone but I was left scratching my head wondering what was that train wreck I just witnessed?

Yeah, finally seeing Luke again was pretty damned cool.

Though the whole him helping raise the First Order is kind of overlooked a tad. And now he's...well, yeah. I guess we'll see.

Origins was in Philly one year in the mid 90's. At the time I was living a 15 minute walk away. The one and only Origins I've attended.

This morning, it will be the first showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Upon my return, it will not be anything appropriately space themed.  No, it will be the exact opposite, Medieval 2:TW as Venice.  I am beset by enemies and my allies are worthless.  Oh, and the Mongols just showed up in the Holy Land, which I have spent an inordinate amount of time and treasure building up.  Now I guess the invaders will have a nice home.

That sucks.  No chance of fighting them off?

The only position I don't hold Number 1 in is Finance, so, the prospects of keeping what I had in Europe are high.  Even with war from the Byzantines, Milanese, Sicilians, and Egyptians, I should come out on top.  But I saw the initial troops the Khan brought with him.  They are plentiful and experienced. 

They are outside a Turkish city at the very eastern edge of the map.  I've made diplomatic contact with them and offered up my Map Information.  If I can get them to take Turkey from the east, leaving me relatively undisturbed in Jerusalem, I may be able to finish Byzantium from the west.  Even if they take the Holy Land from me, I should be able to make comparable territorial grabs in Italy.  Milan is going down!

Nice.  Good luck, sir!

At the time of the last writing, I was facing four enemies.  Now, I have seven.  To the previous four, Egypt, Sicily, Milan, and Byzantium, I have added Holy Rome, the Mongols, and my treacherous allies, the Hungarians.  In an effort to stop some of these wars or prod allies to action in my defense, I have my diplomatic corps working overtime.  Unfortunately, not only have I been unsuccessful, but, my foray with Hungary ended with him repudiating our alliance and immediately declaring war. 

I've lost and regained Thessalonica and added Milan, Genoa, Smyrna, and Nicaea.  I have a powerful army one turn outside Constantinople, but, there is a Muslim jihad on the Byzantine capitol and their army is at the walls.  Oddly, this is the second turn it has been there and not put it under siege.  All I need is one more turn and I can grab it for myself.  Short of Generals in the right place, but more coming through the family tree.  Oh, and I am slowly improving the Holy Land as the Mongols mill around Baghdad.
