    Stores probably put their shipment out for the original on-sale date, not the two-weeks-later one.

    When they first uploaded it on Amazon a couple of weeks ago, they uploaded the whole thing before adjusting it to the preview mode. That's how I was able to read -- well, skim -- most of it.

    I admit I had been lying in wait because they did the same exact thing a week earlier when Windham's Darth Maul book's preview came out.

    Also, there was a drawing on Facebook.

    I found out about it like 8 days late or something. :_|

    I actually get my novels early from a local store. They tend to release the books a few weeks early. I have scored more than one SW novel early from this store.

    I disagree, my British friend. 30 in a 1000 years is a long time. And it shows in the end to how powerful the Sith Lords became in the end when they could even chill with the Jedi and the Jedi could not even detect their alliance with the dark side.

    Rsndom thought, Kibh Jeen was @ 188 BBY?
    Tenebrous was a Sith by then.

    would be nice if you could answer me question mate. Regarding your thought on this, if so then they question is how did Kibh stumble upon knowing of the Rule of 2?

    I have no idea how hard they've hacked the original story of KJ meets the Sith.
    All I know is that it was *adjusted* to make the Jedi look less retarded.

    Whatever the case; fact at the end of the day is, Jeen (insane or not) warned the Jedi but they did not believe him. They dismissed 'his warning' as the rant of of dark sider, a madman.

    Gravid would imply pregnancy. Which is. . .odd.

    That is indeed a very unusual choice of a name, yes. [face_thinking]

    The first thought it conjures in my mind is a Sith Lord who didn't want to search for an apprentice but instead begin a new dynasty in which the mantle of rule passed through blood... which would be a rather ironic story if the baby grew up not to be Sith, or the one who went light.

    Albeit that's kinda Vestara-ey nowadays... but "gravid" conjures up limited images, unless it turned out to be a Mon Calamari who tried to lay thousands of eggs that would become a future Sith Army, but which were eaten by a Whaladon before hatching. :p

    Oh, he's odd, but in a MUCH different way. ;)

    Luceno was the *right author to handle 500 years of Banite history. This book defines the timeline, puts a few more names and places out into the EU and explains the manner in which the Banites evolved. The diversity in Sith-ideals varies greatly from each Master to Apprentice down the line. For a time, Sidious and Plagueis were like minded, Maul helped change that, I think. Luceno rocks.


    *Save for the tranfer thingy which was sortof stupid to even mention, should have been lost with Bane's epic fail or Zannah if she learned it by way of Bane's intrusion. Cognus and her blocking ability would make for a tough transfer attempt.



    **And, of course whatever/ however Harth ended up, but not sure he counts.

    Darth Gravid rocks. For sure he was Vectivus' apprentice going by how Vectivus died of old age and Gravid having learnt compassion etc from that. But getting a Twi'lek as an apprentice? oh boy.. All I could think of is Darth Talon. But its' cool though to know he sabotaged the holocron regarding the essence transfer.

    Can imagine he was a kind person.

    Er... thanks? I'm not sure if it counts as "smart" or "obsession" though... [face_worried]:p

    I'm suddenly seeing Vectivus as a Sith Scrooge and Gravid as Sith Tiny Tim now.

    Eh... Part of that article doesn't make a lot of sense. Although, I'm unsure if that is due to normal wiki speculation or if it was actually in the novel. The part that doesn't make sense is this: "By depriving his successors of essence transfer he eliminated centuries of obsession that had long distracted the Sith from implementing the "Grand Plan" and exacting their revenge against the Jedi, and the Republic." Wouldn't the exact oppisite be true? If they knew essence transfer they wouldn't need to find another way to become immortal yet if they lost it they would put most of their time and effort into finding a way to secure immortality. Hell, Tenebrous purposely sabatoged Plagueis to become "immortal".

    Primary objective - Eliminate Jedi once and for all.

    Secondary objective - Be immortal

    So maybe it's implying that The Sith Lords after Cognus and before Gravid got waylaid just learning how to not stay "dead" instead of thinking of how to kill off Jedi in a 1000 years time.

    Going to redo this again.

    Bane - Sitha'ri

    Zannah - Sorceress

    Cognus - Assassin

    Vectivus - Businessman

    Guile - Philosopher

    Gravid - Revolutioner

    Tenebrous - Mathematician

    Plaguies - Finance

    Sidious - Politician

    Ironic.
    Or, tragic?

    Twelve years later, a movie gets better.
    83-99, 99-12. Twenty nine years to get TPM somewhat right.
