From IGN - Interview with Dave Filoni on how EU will be seen. Good for #RP knowledge.
"My approach has always been to utilize the Expanded Universe as basically a base of ideas. That was very much how George used it. He would see things like Aayla Secura or Quinlan Vos, and he would say, "Oh, that’s neat. Let’s use that," but he would never really use them quite in the way that the comic books told the story. So I think that that’s completely fair, being the person that had created Star Wars, to go like, "Well, I like that idea, but this is how I would tell the story." That’s not too different when you see that sometimes Percival and Galahad are very similar questing knights, and sometimes they’re different; they have different names with different spellings. Good stories and storytelling often branch out and have multiple stories. But as you know, a lot of my life for the last 10 years has been discussing that with fans who love the EU, and I don’t mind at all. I think the key for me is I never would subtract and tell them that, "Hey, you can’t like those stories." If you love those stories, they count for you, and I think that that’s great. Who am I? I’m lucky enough to make this show, but I try to give a nod where I can to things I know people will like." ~Dave Filoni

To roleplay Star Wars online requires a lot of reading, staying on top of…
