    Good advice. The problem with throwing paper money is that they can be blown away by the breeze, so you'll have to chase it. With the change jar, you don't have that problem =P~

    Frankly, I think "short of breath from chasing down multiple bills blown away by the breeze" is a far better prognosis than "admitted to ICU in critical condition after receiving a cerebral contusion and intracerebral hematoma." :p

    Interesting - while leafing through the TOS online encyclopedia, this is the first time I noticed that Separatist Sen. Bonteri was from Onderon. I guess they joined the CIS? (Also, it's sort of ironic that her son teamed up with old-school Mandos)

    Boy, I am really hankering for a new Atlas Appendix update! It has been too long...

    Interesting. I wonder if this reason for Separatistism relates to Onderonian traditions maybe. Remember that quote from KotOR II:
    So, wouldn't be surprised if some Onderonians embraced Separatisism in order to preserve their traditions and culture. Though yeah, its somewhat... ironic that he decided to go to old-school Mandos of all people for help.

    Is Uphrades in the Appendix?

    Not as of the last revision, no.

    Speaking of revisions, working on the Expansion Region sectors map. Prepping it pushes Photoshop over the edge -- lots of crashes. And this is the last of the easy ones -- starting with the Inner Rim things get really tough.

    Hoping the ER map will be part of a springtime update with an appendix revision that includes the WARFARE systems and all the additions/corrections since the last one. OLD REPUBLIC systems are a part of that category.

    Jason, once WARFARE is wrapped up, are there any plans to do any further "sector highlights" like the Tion Cluster or the Grumani Sector?

    No plans right now, but I'd love to, and I'm sure Dan would feel the same way. Here's hoping!

    The trivia slideshow for the most recent TCW episode, Brothers, shows concept art of a galaxy map tracking Savage Opress' journey from Dathomir to Lotho Minor, with several stops along the way.

    Could be helpful when determining the placement of Lotho Minor (and Stobar?)

    Sooo... I know Jason said that we should have the Expansion Region sector map by Spring's end, plus an Appendix Update... is that happening any time soon? I hope so. :)

    This needs to happen, indeed.

    We did get a few new worlds in FotJ which probably need locating, too. An updated to the appendix would be neat :D

    As long as they don't forget Bogden this time around.

    Perhaps the task of mapping the Core Worlds proved too much, and the universe folded in on itself and sucked him into the endless void.

    Ah, I took another look at it. I didn't know there even was an update to the Index.

    Possible missing world - the planet Ohratuu, on p. 145 of the SWAJ #10.

    A-ha. Not a missing world, but misspelled in Atlas. Will put on updates list. Nice catch!

    If Errant really ends will we see a new update?

    A new sector - Stennes Sector (p. 178, SWAJ #12), where it's implied the Stennes shifters' homeworld, Stennaros, is located.

    Do we have any guesses where Quarzite (from the TCW Bounty Hunters episode) is located?
