    You mean he's not going to open up an altruistic grassroots NGO for reforming the prison inmates?

    From Random House:

    Zombiefan Joe Schreiber writing for Plagueis? Now this could go somewhere.

    Why is a super-deadly Jedi-defeating artifact in the SPACE PEN?

    It at least seems like Sidious is planning to use it to usurp Plagueis. I'm excited for the Maul stuff but I'm really excited for some more Sidious/Plagueis intrigue, as in Plagueis.

    Maybe it entices Poggle into joining the CIS.

    "Unspeakable alien horror"?

    Don't you mean to imply his dear mumsy?


    Edit: oh no wait -- you're implying the weapon is the Death Star plans?

    Yeah I'm outta this conversation.

    No, you should be in. Because if the Death Star plans are in the SPACE PEN, then there's only one explanation: RAITH SIENAR IN THE SPACE PEN.

    So are Maul's tattoos the layout of the prison?

    That's what had me immediately concerned -- because he also was the architect behind Maul's Scimitar. So there's already a link...[face_worried]

    Quiet, you.:p

    Hmm, does anyone else think that another book with Plagueis might be hinting at something to come (in Episode 7)?

    Nah. They just like being able to use the character now.

    Good question. What I find more interesting (in terms of hinting at something to come), however, is that in the Plagueis novel, Plagueis is alive during TPM and does alot of stuff that many (if not most) fans assumed Palpatine did.

    What I find most interesting are that Hego Damask and Rugess Nome are the Star Wars Illuminati. Hego Damask is Bob Page and Rugess Nome is Morgan Everett. The Gathering on Sojourn is the Bilberberg Group!!!

    I loved Darth Plagueis and Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter, and I have to admit that Red Harvest was a guilty pleasure, so if this novel harnesses any of the qualities of those I think I will enjoy it.

    The Sith during the movie era definately resemble the Illuminati (thought to not exist, secretly ruling the galaxy and engineering conflicts).

    This is basically lijke a B movie in the EU. They should just keep it simple.

    "one of the power-hungry duo" Which one could it be? Maybe Plagueis is after something that will help him bring down the Empire during the OT.

    I'll be buying it when it comes to paperback. I hate hardcovers.

    I'd never thought I would read the words Illuminati and Bilderberg in the Literature Forum. Who pray tell, are the David Icke Reptilians? [face_rofl]

    Who are the Rosicrucians? @};-

    Then he would go in to break Savage out?

    That'd create a continuity problem or two. :p
