    Welcome to the unofficial “What is a Porg’s Purpose” Poll Contest! To enter, select an option on the Poll, or if your option is not in the list, select other then post your theory below! Whoever has the correct answer, wins! The winners will be announced a week after December 15th!

    Personally. I think that Porgs will have the same purpose as convorees, force sensitive creatures that watch over you.

    What are your thoughts?

    I have been thinking about it, and I have no idea sir. I’m not sure how we can give prizes here. Maybe they earn some sort of special title?

    I think they'll look cute at first, but then you find out how much they crap everywhere and eat eachother, and you say ew, yuk. Like seagulls, and pelicans, they look cool flying, but they are nasty creatures on land.

    The prize thing would be hard to do. But we do have a Sub Forum for wagers and such. Which the winning prize are credits that users accumulate over time. Normally a thread like this would be created in the Casino part of the Cantina. Participants can make bets with the credits that they have and there is a minimum buy in. If you are able to cover the credits for the winner(s) I can move this thread to the casino.

    Here are the rules for the Casino and after reading them if you want me to move this thread, let me or one of the other Mods know.

    Pretty sure a restaurant chain will sign a deal with Lucasfilm to offer Porgs Nuggets in some happy meals.

    The purpose of Porgs is to increase merch sales numbers selling cute fluffy plushie toys...other than that they will just be a part of the background scene setting.

    And an occasional source of comedy.

    Edit: That also includes a good source of poultry.

    They are probably used as lanterns to see at night. Light shines out of their big eyes and then you cuddle with them while you sleep.
