Or before then?
Nothing before the Hundred-Year Darkness because the Hundred-Year Darkness was the birth of the Sith (unless that gets retconned).
I bet something will eventually happen before then. Or maybe not if the EU as we know is completely wiped away.
Non-Sith darksiders might work
Well there is that schism close to the beginning of the Republic that had Arden Lyn in it. Don't remember much about it off the top of my head.
That's what I thought it was
I also wonder why the Great Hyperspace War is often excluded from the Old Sith Wars
Hello. This comic featuring Anakin and Obi-Wan is unknown to me - would anyone recognize it?
Also, a little curious about why some quoted replies are way skinny? As in literally one letter wide?
Thanks for any help, pronker
That's from the first arc of Empire, Betrayal. It had a bunch of flashbacks for Vader.
As for the skinny replies, are you on a mobile device? I've noticed the same thing on my iPod touch.
Thanks so much! Mystery solved.
Nope, I'm on an unfamiliar borrowed laptop, Apple Safari.
Per Ramza, skinny replies are because of: "Too many nested quotes relative to your browser window width. Well-known issue, but there's no obvious fix."
I'm a bit behind on my EU, right now. Got my reading list for Post-RotJ. Corellian Trilogy, Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy, Hand of Thrawn Duology; and then maybe the big series. But only maybe. With the X-Wing series on the side. I stopped reading this list a while ago, because I've been skipping around. Darth Bane, the TOR novels, a few standalones, non-SW stuff. I got some Attention Deficit something... can anyone recommend me some Prequel Trilogy works? I hear Shatterpoint is good, but everything else I'm getting really schizophrenic reviews on. And comics. I read Dawn of the Jedi, but that's it.
Cloak of Deception, Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter, Darth Plagueis, Rogue Planet, Outbound Flight, Shatterpoint, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Labyrinth of Evil, Revenge of the Sith (the novelization), and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. You can skip everything else.
Plagueis, I actually ordered a few days ago. Should be here on Monday or Tuesday. I love Sith. Along with Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, because I wanted to reread it. And have it in Paperback, to go with "Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor", which I love to death. I also read Outbound Flight when I read Survivor Quest. Excellent read. Love Thrawn. Love well-written prequel era characters.
So, I'll write those others down and try to find them at the library.
I can recommend Dark Times, any way that you can get it. Fantastic art and involving storylines. I'm enjoying Dawn of the Jedi currently, too.
DO NOT LINK TO PIRATED MATERIAL.
Started Balance Point yesterday, I'm really enjoying the NJO so far, the authors are making a good job in mantaining the Vong as hateble villains.
Started the Legacy of the Force : Betrayal audio book a few days ago. Pretty good adaption, but I did notice there a few ''scenes'' from the novel that are missing in the audio book. Suppose there just isn't enough time adapt a entire novel into an audio book without trimming it down a little bit ''i.e the leaving out the less important parts''.
The audio books are superb! I've really enjoyed them on long drives, with Jonathan Davis and Jeff Gurner excellent VA's. Yes, unsurprising that abridged versions sell better, I guess ...
I find myself in a interesting position when reading NJO, on one hand i'm like "Why in the hell would they do that?" while on the other hand I found the plot gripping, So basically I like it but I hate it... If that makes sense...
I know a while back (probably around the time that Invincible came out) they released the Betrayal ebook and abridged audiobook for free. Perhaps there's a for $ unabridged version? That abridged version is the only audiobook I've ever listened to, but I know that if that's how I was "reading" the book for the first time, I would want it unabridged.
So I'm halfway through Balance Point. Beware if you haven't read it yet, there are spoilers here.
So far so good, Han and Leia are getting along again, Mara discovers she's pregnant, the Hutts are getting into trouble with the Vong, etc.
I am enjoying the series, but I also have some criticism for it:
Mostly, Jacen, he's boring me to death with his doubts about using or not the force in an agressive way when the situaton calls for it. I can understand the debate, but I'm in the 5° book of the series and he haven't decided yet, I hope the "Balance Point" in the title also goes for a final decision for him. The way he is now, he looks nothing like the Jacen from the Young Jedi Knights series.
On the other hand Jaina and Anakin are great.
I also wonder... where's Boba Fett? They should use him in the series. And what about the other Young Jedi Knights? They've made some small cameos but that's it.
I hope those issues are fixed as the series continues.
Boba Fett pops up briefly in The Unifying Force. The ebook Boba Fett: A Practical Man and the Star Wars Tales story Revenants covers what he's doing for the majority of the war. As for the Young Jedi Knights, they're featured prominently in Star by Star.
You're kidding! I would have loved to see him kicking some Vong ass... what a waste.
Boba Fett: A Practical Man and The Unifying Force are pretty good on that score, though they essentially only cover the very beginning and the very end of the war, leaving Fett's role throughout the bulk of the war left only to reference material.
