While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Does Baby Yoda get one Dark Side point for each baby he eats?

Also, for purpose of discussion, are Baby Yoda's race called Dagobans?

Well we allways knew Yoda was not a nice person. The Jedi are not a "force of good in the galaxy" especially Yoda. This gets brought up in Clone Wars too.

As for their species. It is still unknown. They are apparently not native to Dagobah.

I think the Jedi were a force for good in the galaxy. I don't think their failures and foibles disqualifies them. It just means they were wrong sometimes.

As to Baby Yoda, he's a child who doesn't understand that the eggs were from an intelligent species. He was just hongry.

(Though him force-choking Cara Dune in the first season brings up the spectre of a child with force powers doing stuff out of anger or fear with no concept of adult behavior)

I love how Wookipedia had some deep need to point out that the robot was "masculine programmed".

I... don't buy that. Especially not after repeated admonishments.

Honestly, I'm surprised he could eat that many.

I would argue that in the prequel era Yoda was a good person who was not good at his job. He was clearly one of the greatest Jedi Knights, but as a master and teacher he relies on mysticism way too much, so his advice is not particularly good. He also repeatedly fails to see the problems that are brewing right in front of him. And he is not sympathetic to Anakin. Obi-Wan was ten times the mentor that Yoda was.

When he's training Luke on Dagobah, he seems to set Luke up to make as many mistakes as possible.

If he was really as wise as everyone said he was, he would have stepped down in favor of someone more suitable to lead.

I don't remember any point where Mando explained why not to eat the eggs. And we haven't seen any indication that the child would understand beyond Mando being upset.

Episode 11 (Season 2 Episode 3) is out, this one is IMHO better than the last, and more central to the main storyline.

Please refrain from spoilers on this episode until Monday.

Episode 3 was excellent, but if they keep this Incredible Shrinking Episode bullshit up the season finale will be Mando saying “this is the way” and that will be it.

Hated Episode 3. They pretty much destroyed Mando's character. I can now see why Pedro Pascal quit the show.

You do realise that's just a false rumour based on the fact that Pascal had scheduling problems during the filming of season 2, right? He didn't actually quit the show.
Obvious troll is obvious. RIP, Bill.

This is theRPGsite--baseless and unproven rumors are the norm here.
