We’ve all run into moments of frustration in our lives where normal words are insufficient. There are times when we just have to dust off our rage faces and scream a four letter word at the top of our lungs, or maybe you drop a curse every other word cause you so hella gangsta.Whatever the case, we’ve all had to wash out our mouths (literally or figuratively) at least once. But what about our characters? How do we deal with profanity in a Star Wars setting?
There are instances in the original films of some minor vulgarity, such as Han Solo calling Obi-Wan a "damn fool” in A New Hope and telling an Echo Base Officer, "I’ll see you in hell!” as he rides off to save Luke in The Empire Strikes Back. But sometimes the situation calls for something stronger. A simple internet search for Star Wars profanity can yield lists of containing many scores of lore-friendly swears in Basic, Huttese, Mando’a, and other Star Wars languages. You even build up your dirty vocabulary just by paying attention to what people say in cantinas. However, some might consider an f-bombing soldier or s***-talking outlaw to be more "realistic" than the sanitized movies, books, and games. But this is sci-fi for frak sake.
So for my first Force Reflection ever: Does your character have a mouth like a spacer? If so, what is your favorite canonical curse? From an RP perspective, do you think it is ok to use real-world bleeps in-character? How do you react (OOCly and ICly) if someone does drop a thousand hertz?
