I bid you Dark Greetings, fellow champions [cue Freddie]. It's back to school for us for a final month of Jedi Academy and a final month of Exar Kun. Kevin J. Anderson should be pretty bored of us reiterating that he could have given us better books, but here we are still reading Champions of the Force. Let's start with all the stuff everyone wanted to bring to the table since we began with Jedi Search. And for those of us who didn't hold back the first two times around, what do you think of the actual titular Champions of the Force? The trilogy has them "mature into proper knights", conceptually at least, in less than a year and with a hell of a trial by fire. What do you think about this conceptual take on Jedi maturity and ability? Seeing how Jedi training was a bit of solo lightsaber training, running through a swamp, and listening to some pieces of good advice back then, is it even that remarkable that the First Class is done in one year? Everyone remember, 28 days later than now we'll celebrate our Halloween hangover by talking about what the Death Troopers did last summer.
