More updates from yesterdays review of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1 Episode 14: Defenders of Peace, the Lok Durd Armored Assault Tank (Defoliator Deployment Tank) (do you think they called it the DDT on purpose?), to the Star Wars D/6 Vehicles Section, the Arakyd Industries Viper Probe droid to the Star Wars Equipment/Droids Section, and the Carrier butterfly and the Lurmen to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Creatures and Player Character Species sections respectively.
Many thanks to Hellstormer for dropping in and providing stats for The Marauder and The Raza from Dark Matter, the excellent series which was recently cancelled by Syfy, but this post by Joseph Mallozzi offers as he puts it "A glimmer of hope", fingers crossed.
Ever since it started I've felt that Dark Matter is one of the most RPG like television series out there. With the characters starting with all their skills, but no knowledge of the setting or their own backgrounds (much like a Player Character in an RPG). The amount of inter party rivalry and bickering I also felt almost exactly matches the banter around a game table. I've loved this series, the characters were amazing, the setting well done, and the use of the technology they established throughout the series thoughtful and ingenious. If you liked this series, have a read through the post by Joseph Mallozzi, and join in with his plan if you can, it may help other networks pay attention and save this series before the cast needs to move on and the sets are torn down. It's a glimmer of hope, but one that needs us to help out.
