For purposes of Star Wars-related debate in Rumbles and in order to clarify the official stance on this issue, we shall assume the following:
Scenarios referring to Star Wars-related elements (characters, incidents, settings and so on) on in the generic sense shall, by default, be assumed to refer to those seen in primary film canon. Scripts, novelizations of the movies, and audio-book/radio-play versions to the films may be employed as source material provided they do not contradict the movies.
The so-called ''canon-tree'' will not be employed here as such at Rumbles. Henceforth, debators will treat the Star Wars ''EU'' or Expanded Universe (books) as an entirely distinct continuity; likewise Star Wars videogames and RPGs will be regarded as standalone continuities or Alternate Universes in our discussions. Members are free to specify and discuss scenarios set in these other continuities; it's just that what happens in those settings will not be regarded as valid feats when discussing issues from primary film canon.
