    That's what I love about this pre-TotJ era- there's such latitude for daring new stories, rather than being hemmed in by the same old Jedi-vs-Sith, with the Jedi and Sith ending up as carbon copies of the PT-era. Who knows- if DotJ does well enough, we might get to see further exploration of the early Republic. I'd love to see a Tales from the Old Republic anthology, with everything dated pre-5000 BBY.

    Indeed, lets forget about the Sith right now and just focus on the Rakata, their Force Hounds and the potential imbalance they are going t bring to Tython.

    But anyway, considering its potential, hopefully this can proceed into future arcs such as the Force Wars and we really get to see the beginnings of the Old Republic.

    Ok, 1 month. I thought it was October. Still, 1 month isn't too far away! :D

    Daegen Lok is the darkness in the light, and Xesh is the light in the darkness. I look forward to their meeting.

    Some quote I found that's kind of relevant to this, ahem, discussion:
    Suspicion? Premonition? Inside information? Your call. [face_mischief]

    That's... really interesting. All this time, I've thought the 7,000 BBY / Second Great Schism retcon was Dan's. Where did it originate, if not the NEC? Because, as recently as 2005, we were getting material (KotOR II: The Sith Lords) that still treated Xendor's Great Schism as the conflict that produced the Exiles that went on to become the Dark Lords.

    Though it was TSL that talked about ancient Dark Lords using lightsabers, too, which is what I had thought prompted the retcon in the first place.

    What I find really intriguing and relevant to this thread is that one quote combined with this other one:

    Hmm, intriguing to say the least. [face_thinking]

    Random side note: it's not very visible in the online images, but now that I know what to look for the cover art is clearly signed "Migliari 2003."

    Dark Horse says it will continue for at least the near-future, and being in the distant past, I hope DOTJ is safe!

    Makes me wonder what Dark Horse were being told back when Legacy got the axe though...

    Have they suspected for a long time that it was better to wait and see before committing to any ongoings?

    I suddenly feel like @Jedi_Ben :/

    I think it may be the only era that is safe.

    Yeah; one day we could look back on DotJ as being the beginning of the New EU. [face_mischief]

    Wonder what impact (if any) Disney's purchase of LFL will have on this series.

    Any ideas theories as to what/who (if anything/anyone) corrupted the Rakata?

    I think their Force-based technology did, right?
