No houses, not capital ships.

P.S. Vader did spend a lot of time on the Executor. A lot of time.
You said Weaponry... So not palaces, no. Come on dude, You can't give Vader the huge advantage of an Incredible fast personally modded Starfighter, and not let me have a Standard Imperial Star Destroyer >.>

They weren't even that good, It's just extra fodder for me

Edit: And it'd only be in battles Cronal would be in, which certainly isn't many.

Can we talk about mass drivers?

Because game mechanics aren't a problem, mass drivers will be a one-hit kill to any weapon system or special attachment such as a gravity well or anti-missle field. They completely disregard shields, are impossible to avoid or deflect, and are a huge physical impact that will rip through pretty much everything.
~~ AiR ~~
What are you more afraid of?
A weapon that could destroy you?
Or a weapon that could turn you into a monster?

Mass Drivers are projectiles, and thus as far as I'm aware, still negated by the Gravity well of Interdictors.

Edit: Not sure why, but i always thought those were only on Cosortium space stations.

Nope, mass drivers aren't affected by interdictors.

At least, I've never seen them be. Need to get out Forces of Corruption and find out, I suppose.

Oh, Ok.

Any chance I can get the source on this?

Well, apparently gravity wells actually attract mass, such as space debris. Mass drivers are, effectively, mass. The reason missiles are disrupted is because they're guided. So the field disrupts the guidance system, sending it off course. However, weapons that go straight, such as torpedoes, and mass drivers, aren't affected.

Coolio, of course it would require a Direct shot to a Vessel that would Likely be Near the edge of the fray...

Quick question though, which Consortium ships had Mass Driver Canons?
Edit: Nvm, found them

I said personal starfighters and weaponry, not capital ships. Else I'd be allowing G0-T0s Yacht and the Executor. I can't pick and choose, no ifs, buts or onlys - rules are rules I'm afraid.

Also don't forget the Kaggath isn't fair, kudos to Canino for choosing the best starfighter pilot in the galaxy.

And like you said, the Singularity is just bantha fodder. I mean its not as if its coated in stygian-triprismatic polymer making it almost impossible to detect at sensor range and nearly invisible to the naked eye in deep space. Right?

Shhh... It's a secret

Seriously though, it makes sense.... Either way, I doubt, and i mean HIGHLY doubt Vader would survive long in a fighter anyway. He'd let off such huge echoes in the Force Traya could relay his location immediately...

Mass driver cannons hurl projectiles at roughly 2 km per second. Not a chance would be man made gravity well be able to negate it. Else they'd be tugging in starships as well like a miniature black hole.

Oh and just for a run down, the Vengeance-class frigates, Keldabe-class battleships are armed with mass drivers. The former has four and the latter has 1.

EDIT: They effectively move as fast, if not faster, than regular turbolaser fire.
