    And of course, General Bane Otto from Star Wars: Demolition.

    ....

    What do you mean, he was never called Bane in the first place?!

    Wasn't this supposed to be out in October last year? 2014? Really? That's pathetic.

    Wheatley's doing the illustrations. What did you expect?

    Heck in that case, can I request Episode 7 spoilers?

    I hereby request a full bio for C'baoth. The original, not just the clone. It's time to tie in a few loose ends and make a few useful retcons.

    Wait, so there is going to be a new essential guide(s) to characters(and possible others)?! That makes me happy! I've always wondered if there would ever be an update!

    It never had an absolute release date, but I believe they intimated at Celebration last year that it would be out in August 2013. That's what threw me about the new date; I'd only noticed the "October" part and assumed it was just bumped a few months, which isn't unusual for EGs these days.

    hahah, i told my sister earlier today that wheatley was doing a third essential guide to characters, and she was like, "oh awesome! ... wait, so i guess it'll be out like never then right?" and i was like, i think it's supposed to be out later this year so i guess he's been working on it for awhile?

    guess not :p

    Is this still the official thread for "The Essential Characters"?

    If so, this thread needs a renaming.

    What I want to know is what the phrase "won't retread old characters" means.

    Properly that it won’t reprint characters that have not really done anything worthwhile since the last Essential Guide to Characters. So people like Gepta or Hethir might not be included.

    Let's hope Negtc stays in print.

    And no Jorus C'baoth either. :(
    Yet somebody needs to fix his timeline already! And remember that Dark Jedi uprising in the Elrood sector which was mentioned only once and quickly forgotten. And also fix the Alderaan Ascendancy Contention for good. Was it 32 BBY or 28 BBY? Was it Bail Organa or his father? Was the marriage that solved the contention that of Bail and Breha or not? Tell us already! [face_sigh]

    Outbound Flight was published after the last Edition of the EGC so I should assume he gets included.

    As you may have guessed already, that really would make my day if they included him and fixed a thing or two. Dear authors, if you read this board...

    I am most displeased with the infernal delay on this tome's release. If Mr. Wallace is reading, I have another demandhumble request: That the Sith Emperor (who does deserve an entry) is confirmed to have had a humbling vision of his successor, the greater Sith Emperor Palpatine, and trying desperately to alter the course of history in a desperate attempt to steal Darth Sidious's thunder. It's time to put the shallow imitation in its place.

    A special thanks to Ulicus for this brilliant and appropriate retcon.

    Indeed, I really want to see what is said about Tenebrae/Vitiate/Sith (non-)Emperor and Cosinga Palpatine II//Sidious/THE Emperor.

    As am I.

    Hopefully it will be something along the lines of: "...And no matter how hard he tried, Vitiate failed spectacularly to ever achieve the same level of significance -- militarily, politically, and supernaturally -- as his successor, the galaxy's true Sith Emperor: Palpatine the Undying. In the dark recesses of his private chambers, this enduring fact drove the ancient sorcerer to tears and fits of impotent rage."
