I think it would be mareve, most likely.
There is a grammar section on Travis' sight
I have problem getting in right now
According to the grammar section for a noun like Marev you would add an -e at the end. So: Mareve or Marev'e
The -e is pronounced as ay. Either way. SO there you go. . .I think
What I like about English speakers making up foreing pronunciation is that they usually end up with the way Germans would say it. I have it easy.
Correct on mareve, too. If the noun ends on a vowel as 'se'.
I might do translationsif asked.
(Depending on length and difficulty of the text.)
I'm reading the "Clone Wars Volume 1" Omnibus and in Defense of Kamino, Lama Su mentions that the ARC Troopers were trained by Jango. Does anyone remember if that's Traviss canon?
Yes, the 100 Alpha-class ARC Troopers were all trained by Jango directly.
OK. It didn't sound 100% familiar to me, and I like it when the comics align with the novels.
A Hard contact question: Do anybody know how long Etain have been on Qiilura in and how long she been on the run before meating Darman?
hmmm. Not sure. It's been awhile since I have read it. Going to have to rectify that I suppose.
Zey refers to it as 'some'weeks. The briefing is set 3 months ABG and the scene where Etain hides is set between Dar losing his squad and Niner meeting Fi, so possibly right after Geonosis, give or take a few days.
So I'd say anything between 4-12 weeks Etain has been hiding, no knowing how long she and Fulier had been there before. I'd assume weeks, maybe months. Hard to say with Fulier's impatience, but you need some time to aquire somthing like those plans.
TOo bad the novel doesn't have that neat xyz Days ABG dating yet.
Thanks, and now for follow up questions: Why was she and her master on Qiilura why they were scouting out the buildings? How did she not know about the whole Cole war and jedi officers thing? How long was she on Birhan's farm?
I'd wager she and Master Fulier were on Qiilura before Geonosis and that's why she didn't know about anything. That's how I interpreted the book anyway.
Yep, that's how I read it as well. Not sure why Jedi were alredy on and about spying, but the 'peace' wasn't a quite one. So maybe some information gathering ebfore the Sith hit the fan.
They certainly were on a 'mission' as Etain wants to fulfil it to keep Fulier's sacrifice meaning something. And the way she talks about it, it does sound as if tehy had been specifically after those floor plans.
Sounds like asking them on purpose to me...
That's more-or-less how I read it also but then I have to ask the question of why Qiilura of all places? What did that unimportant planet have that justified the presence of a jedi?
What did a planet as unimportant as Ansion have that justified Anakin, Obi-Wan, Barriss, and Luminara's presence? Just a border dispute, right? Surely if Etain and Fulier were there for floor plans for a separatist base it's more important than a border dispute. I don't think that mission itself was important, otherwise it would've been explained.
I have not read the adventure with Ansion but the wook' make it sound like it was border dispute that could turn in to a large conflict. Qiilura had no conflict and is rather open with its injustice, what was there that needed a jedi?
Who knows? It is a little annoying that we don't know, but like I said, if it were important to the story it would've been explained, I'm sure.
Because that was where the Separatists held Uthan. Ask them 'why Qiilura?'.
In the mission briefing Zey explicitly says Uthan is the man target and finding the Jedi is an extra. So I'd guess she was the reason Fulier was sent to get some intel as well.
If Fulier and Etain arrived on Qiilura before the First Battle of Geonosis, Uthan was not there when they arrived, the nanovirus was not even on the drawing table back then.
Spying out suspicious Seperatist action on a remote planet would be enough reason to send Jedi anywhere. *coughs*
What do you mean with the coughs?
That SW reasoning isn't always as sound as common sense would like. ^.^'
