Eh, I've made that joke here before.
Yeah, but it's one of those lines that doesn't get old.
A little perspective for us after today's news: one of ETE's search engine referrals today was "difference between marvel comics and dark horse".
For some people, it's all just comics.
In need of assistance: what's the original source for Pellaeon ordering the retreat at Endor? I feel like it was in TTT, but I don't remember where.
it may have been WEG TTT sourcebooks- Heir to the Empire mentions "the order to withdraw" but not who gave it- only that Pellaeon took over the ship he was on after its commander was killed- and tried to "hold things together" after Endor:
Heir to the Empire:
With the Executor's leadership gone, the battle had quickly turned into a confused rout, with several other Star Destroyers being lost before the order to withdraw had finally been given. Pellaeon himself, taking command when the Chimaera's former captain was killed, had done what he could to hold things together, but despite his best efforts, they had never regained the initiative against the Rebels. Instead, they had been steadily pushed back … until they were here.
The new canon rules, and the end of the hierarchy
Leland Chee @HolocronKeeper1h@StephenVincent More so than ever, the canon field will serve us internally simply for classification rather than setting hierarchy.
Leland Chee @HolocronKeeper11h@A_Targaryen Story Group has a hand in all facets of Star Wars storytelling, including movies, TV, games, and publishing.
Leland Chee @HolocronKeeper13h@pauldunahoo @rwknopp Star Wars Canon is now determined by the Lucasfilm Story Group which @infinata and I are both a part of.
Stop spamming this over and over in multiple threads.
You have indeed, but a warning has already been made and the issue is dealt with. Leave it be.
I know Hav very well.
O Sev, Sev! Wherefore art thou, Sev?
Has Sernpidal enough towns for all these mayors?
Ha. I may have to write something about him someday.
Some devastatingly handsome writer at ElevenThirtyEight submitted this piece on why Disney definitely needs to get Matthew Stover involved with EU 2.0.
You don't think that all of Stover's novels save Traitor would fit a potential reboot?
I could see them fitting a reboot, but keeping them in continuity 2.0 is less necessary than Stover helming the new EU.
That, and I fully expect that they'll have a completely new post-ROTJ era, complete with "Finally, we get to explore Luke's adventures after ROTJ!!!1!1" marketing.
Plus, the idea of the Escape Pod series is to choose one self-contained element, and an entire story doesn't really fit the bill for that. Keeping Mindor, f.e., means keeping Vastor, Rostu, Shysa, etc., which is cheating.
@RC-1991 Thought you might like to know that Stover apparently read and appreciated your article.
Let it be a lesson to never badmouth Stover. He will find it. Then he will find you.
Shadows of Minor captured Luke better than anyone and has one of the most brilliantly written scenes with Derek "Hobbie" Kilivan ever written in the EU.
In fact, the scene with Hobbie may be one of the best EU scenes ever. In perfect Stove fashion, we see Hobbie "fret" over losing a limb, only to realize that it, as well as a good portion of the rest of his body, is robotic.
I love how you went to the trouble to write the whole name out but still spelled "Klivian" wrong.
You are a monster. But I still like you.
Hobbie himself joked about that in Starfighters of Adumar, so it's all good.
How about putting Matt Stover in the STORY GROUP?
