    Damn it, I should have waited for this to write about the Whimpering Locker! I hope someone else does him.

    I was planning on doing a story on the Whimpering Locker myself, even though I never played KoToR, your description of him intrigued me. :D

    Yeah, the Whimpering Locker isn't even mentioned in the Wookieepedia!

    And if I had any idea what this was all about, I'd choose it for the challenge.:p
    A viggie about a cupboard sound interesting .

    [face_laugh] Now there's a plot bunny if I ever read one. There is an excellent explanation as to who the Whimpering Locker in the last post on page 1. :)

    Actually, this is the Whimpering Locker, from KotOR. The Talking Cupboard was in The Starfighters of Adumar. Or was that a wardrobe? I'll have to check.

    EDIT: I'm entirely serious about that.

    I recently posted to the new Drabble challenge and added a drabble for Jedi Streen. He is sorely underused in the EU. I plan to keep adding a Streen drabble to my weekly posts as long as inspiration allows.

    I've sent a PM to you regarding this via my sock.


    I have a question. Does anyone know who or what Tobal Iens is? All I found about him is Cliegg and Owen Lars tricked Watto into trading Shmi for Tobal Iens. I need this for a story I'm working on (and it has nothing to do w/ the challenge ;) :p ).

    I'm not entirely sure whether I wrote part of a fic for the challenge, or something that comes afterward and doesn't actually belong in the story.

    :oops: I haven't started writing yet! I've been obsessed with the story I've been working on... I've finished it now, but am working on it's sequel... but I will have the Whimpering Locker story ready for the challenge.

    OK, I wanted to throw this out to everyone to see what you all think: Do you think we should vote on who wins this challenge a week later or just keep this as a friendly challenge meant only to increase awareness of minor characters?

    I haven't really noticed people being afraid to enter the competitive challenges (which have not been especially unfriendly ;)), but then again, I don't frequent all the individual character threads -- most of the competitive challenges I've noticed have been ones that were allowed to offer a prize at the end, which I imagine also had an effect.

    I've updated the index. I'm sorry if I forgot anyone's stories.

    It has been decided that we will keep this challenge 'friendly'. Perhaps future challenges will be competitive, but hopefully still friendly.

    So, uh, anybody got any minor-character Sith from the waaaaaaay Before-the-Saga days who might want to ride this fearsome creature?

    Ok, it is now half past midnight, Monday October 8 for me, so I've posted my response to the challenge: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=27575586&brd=10475]No Food for Fishies Today[/link]. Oh, HyperionRising, I didn't know if you gave the Whimpering Locker the name Kev or if that was supposed to be his name already, and I used it... I hope it's alright.

    It's "Tobal lens," actually. The only thing I've found on it is here: http://www.theforce.net/swenc/entryclass.asp?page=22&search=T

    Not a character, apparently.

    Thank you. I forgot I had posted that question! I did find it a few days ago and since I forgot I'd asked here, I forgot to say 'never mind'. :oops: Thanks though :)
