    The way this game works is you'll start off by saying "You'd be surprised to know..." (or YBSTK. You would be or YWB works too) and then you'll just write a random fact about a Star Wars character that may or may not be true. I'll start this off.


    YBSTK Luke Skywalker spends, at least, and hour on his hair every morning, even though it looks like he doesn't.

    You'd be surprised to know that not many younglings have heard the story of Darth Plagueis the Wise because it is not a story the Jedi would tell you.

    You’d be surprised to know that Mandalorian armor is specifically designed to be sarlacc-proof.

    I wouldn’t be THAT surprised :)

    You might be surprised to know though that Lobot has a lower-back tattoo of a krayt dragon. It’s pretty tasteful though.

    You’d be surprised to know that the term ‘padawan’ is actually a contraction for ‘paddled one’, a reference to the original Jedi initiation which was similar to that of a college fraternity <insert clip from ‘Dazed and Confused’ here>

    You’d be surprised to know that Bothans are an irrationally easy species to kill. So ‘many Bothans dying’ to make anything happen isn’t really all that noteworthy. About fifty Bothans died to bring you this post.

    You'd be surprised to know that Taun Tauns actually smell pretty good on the outside and even better on the inside to most people but there is a gene that makes them smell awful for 4-14 percent of the population, including Han Solo.

    You'd be surprised to know that Palpatine has several anti-wrinkle creams that he uses daily. He claims they work wonderfully...


    I wonder if anyone should tell him... D:

    You might be surprised to know...

    Princess Leia and Jyn Erso share strikingly similar character arcs particularly in the aspect of having to both complete the missions -- and right the wrongs of -- their respective fathers:

    Jyn in two major senses:
    • completing the mission: transmitting Galen Erso's information and the Death Star plans to the Rebellion
    • righting the wrong: fighting against the Empire her father begrudgingly assisted

    and Leia:
    • completing the mission: Bail Organa (father figure) - helping to convey Death Star information to Obi-Wan Kenobi / the Rebellion
    • righting the wrong: helping to lead the fight against the Empire, which her true father assisted

    You’d be surprised to know that despite their profusion of body fur, there is no such career or role as a hairdresser in Wookiee society.

    You might be surprised to know...

    Luke, Leia, and Rey are about the same age (~19 years old) when we first see them (as young adults) in the filmed saga (Episode IV and Episode VII respectively).

    You’d be surprised to know that Wookie bowcasters do not in fact cast bows.

    You'd be surprised to know that Ahsoka isn't really a Togruta and that her lekku/headtails are actually one of Padme's elaborate head pieces.
