Creating this sound font was bitter sweet. Honestly, when I first saw ANH as a kid, I thought Princess Leia was bad as she was mean to Han! Its fun to look back and see how our perceptions change as we get older. Going back and watching the movies as an adult, I really enjoy Leia's character (and understand why she was mean to Han! ).
Font Information: This font is designed as a sound set depicting an event where Darth Vader and Princess Leia are fighting together as Father and Daughter. I almost named the font "Daddy's Princess," but I decided against it. This is not a font imagined as Leia as a fully trained Jedi using her lightsaber, but rather as her and Vader fighting side by side. The lightsaber sounds are inspired by Darth Vader. The blaster sounds are from Leia in ANH and ROTJ. The force sounds are inspired by Vader.
Inspiration: The font was inspired by my own remembrance of Carrie Fisher in ANH. One might call this a font about "my Princess Leia" and my fondest memories of her character. Leia's theme music is included in the font as my memories are deeply influenced by the Star Wars soundtrack (It is the first one I owned).
This font is for both NEC and Plecter soundboards. I have not submitted it to SaberFont.com yet, but I plan to.
ARKM: Question: Why do all the modern day mythical versions of dwarves have Irish accents... especially when they are based off of Norse/German legends? Should I blame Tolkien or Gary Gygax (who basically stole everything from Tolkien)?

ARKM: Also, why are there no lumberjacks in the city?

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
