SAMURAI STAR WARS : The TXI Ranks and Yavin Honor explained (and some awesome artwork to see !)

Post by ourchickenshack on Fri Dec 04, 2015 10:51 pm

If you haven't noticed already or was wondering what the hell a "Corellia  Chugen" is - we thought it would be good to explain our Rank Titles  lol!

We thought it would be cool to tie the Samurai influence to the Jedi Knight  Very Happy  Hey , Georgie did it why can't we  cheeky

The ranks are the equivalent of actual Samurai positions tied to whatever Star Wars planet that sounded good with it  Wink

Unless it has changed from the last time we discussed it as a team , I believe this is the ranking system :

Corellia  Chugen          (0)
Alderaan Ashigaru      (50)
Yavin Yari                    (100)
Outer Rim Ronin         (250)
Sullust Samurai           (500)
Bespin Busho               (1000)
Tatooine Taisho           (2000)
Hoth Hatamoto           (4000)
Dagobah Daimyo        (6000)
Jedi Shogun                 (8000)  
Jedi Shogun Spirit       (10000)

The number of posts to achieve the rank is in parenthesis  ninja

We just thought it was a fun idea  bananarock

stormie vader  saber  duel  emperor  r2  boba  rebel  ds  ewok  jawa

There's some cool emoticons here too  afro

They changed it on you. Smile

You should currently be Tatooine Taisho with your current post count according to your system, not Bespin Busho. nanny

Thanks for the explanation though.

While we're on the subject, what is the Yavin Honor number? Is that the same as 'likes', or something else?

I am a bit on the slow side lol!

Well at least you get our original concept Wink


Yes , the Yavin Honor is basically the like button on the right hand side of our posts (looks like a light saber sort of cheeky )

I can't remember the point system exactly so one of the smarter fellas may need to clarify that . It took me over a hour to find where we had discussed the ranks back when we 1st started building the ship  What a Face

Yavin Honor points can be earned by other members liking your post by pressing the "+" at the top right corner.
There upon a blue light saber appears and the members earns +5 points

In case you have started a thread and like to thank someone for a post in your thread, just push the "Thank" button.
The members then earns + 25 points.

As James said, some elements from Star Wars were definitely inspired by the Samurai culture. So we thought it would be cool to combine Star Wars with Samurai as a base for our ranking system.

Below is an interesting vid discussing the influence of Japanse movies like Akira Kurosawa's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on Star wars:





And on top there is a nice comparison between The Hidden Fortress and Star Wars.
Maybe the link between the two movies is a bit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], but who cares, we all dig the Samurai vibe, don't we? Very Happy

You would think that Boba's character would be better suited for a Ninja, than a Samurai. clapping

James, Thanks for sharing all of the great pictures you find. bowwing

The emporers guards look like they really fit in. That last one with the giant gun in the stormtroopers hand. That is what you might call a one shot wonder. The kickback would likely kill him. These all look like toys? Have these been custom made or is someone producing these type of things?

I believe they are being made by Bandai  scratch
