Title: Empire of the Hand Author: YodaKenobi Timeframe: Post NJO Characters: Jaina Solo, Jag Fel, Alema Rar, more. Genre: Adventure, mystery Keywords: Summary: Jaina Solo embarks on a search for a missing Jedi Knight that takes her into the Unknown Regions where something more sinister has been gathering. Notes: This is a continuation of the storyline from [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=12867139] Revolution[/link],[link=http://boards.theforce.net/Beyond_the_Saga/b10477/14085947/?1334] The Eighth Cortex[/link], and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Beyond_the_Saga/b10477/16202587/?1577] The Living Force [/link]. You don't need to have read them, just know that they replace "The Final Prophecy" and "The Unifying Force" in the NJO storyline, and that the New Jedi Order ended differently. This will probably be much shorter than the above fics, as it's just meant to be a launching point for another series later.

I'm not sure if there actually are any, since this is written about the NJO with a different ending, but just in case, you may want to avoid this if you haven't read the NJO.
