I noticed no one is discussing this topic, so I was just curious what everyone would like to see in a followup novel to the Darth Bane series? This isn't pure speculation, as Drew Karpyshyn and his editor said a continuation is highly likely considering how well that particular series did. For obvious reasons, it probably won't have "Darth Bane" in the title, and will probably just be called "Darth Zannah" with a subtitle. Now, with that out of the way, how do you think the story would unfold after the events of "Dynasty of Evil"? If you remember, that novel ended quite openly with Set Harth on the loose with Darth Andeddu's holocron, and a small portion of Bane's soul now residing within Zannah herself. Because of that, she can probably perform the ritual of essence transfer now, and teaches it to Darth Cognus at some point, which is why the Sith were said to have that capability all the way up to the reign of Darth Gravid. Either that, or they hunt down Set Harth to recover the holocron (and eliminate him for knowing of their existence). I'm wondering if that will be the main plot of a followup novel? Here are some other questions to ponder: What was the relationship like between Zannah and Cognus? Was Cognus a good student, or a rebellious one? She seems pretty fanatically devoted at the end of the third book if you ask me. How and where did Zannah train Cognus? Do they head back to Bane's estate on Ciutric? Did Zannah continue the guise of wealthy importer/exporter/merchant and take Cognus into that fold? Or will they go down a different "career" path. What's the story behind Darth Millennial's recruitment? Does that happen before or after Zannah's death? How does Cognus ultimately kill Zannah? Zannah was extremely powerful in Sith sorcery, so it won't be easy. Perhaps Cognus uses her Force disruption ability to get the upperhand. Also, how does that small portion of Bane residing in Zannah factor into all this? Did Cognus essentially have to defeat both Zannah and Bane together, or at least a Zannah empowered with Bane's abilities? Finally, who do you think should write this followup novel? Should they stick with Drew Karpyshyn, or go for someone else? Personally, I'd like to see a female author tackle this project, simply because the main characters are female, plus it would be interesting to have a woman's take on the Sith/dark side. Discuss.
