Hi, so, since this thread debuted the day before the move, I'm taking the initiative and reposting it to the real boards. Here is @Grey1's introduction: Two words: Kyle Katarn. Welcome to another month of discussion. This time around, we have retrieved something that doesn't get found as often as the Death Star plans: The Dark Forces novellas by William C. Dietz. Soldier of the Empire, Rebel Agent, Jedi Knight. I don't know how you feel about this, but the game Jedi Knight is one of my most treasured EU memories from the precious time before the prequels came out. And if I need to say more... Kyle Katarn. So, we're going to do one novella per week, starting with Soldier of the Empire, of course. I'll try something new by just throwing a few keywords out there for you to decide what you want to discuss: - Dietz's quality as an author? - Kyle as a character? All the other characters like Jan or Jerec? - Life as a soldier of the Empire? - Dark Forces - the game and how it is worked into the novella? - The backstory for the two games that's given here? - Captain Thrawn? Off we go! Next month: Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon.
