    Talk about them here. I want to know about what went on in between 5000 BBY and 4000 BBY.

    P.S. Do NOT talk about movie and/or TV ideas here!

    The most obvious one is probably post-Legacy era. For pre-movies, we have stuff heading back tens of thousands of years, even if it is scant information. Some areas are unexplored, but we at least have general information about how everything progressed to the time of the movies.

    But, past Legacy, we have absolutely no idea what goes on.

    I must confess I'd demonstrate a total lack of interest for a post-Legacy era. More Skywalker great-great-great-great-grandchildren? No, thanks. I'd like to hear about the Unification Wars of the Republic, for example. Or maybe a couple of stories the events of which would occur around 3,000 BBY, when the Hapes Consortium was founded. Oh, and yes, the story of Allya, banned Jedi Knight and Mother of the Dathomirian witches circa 600 BBY.

    Someone seriously needs to do a "Where Are They Now?" story on pretty much everyone who lived through the Marvel series, save Lumiya.

    now someone is talking some sense in the thread...
    what about THYD?(the hundred year darkness) or the massive battle of ruusan on the big screen?

    Which currently untold stories do you want the most?

    They're continuing Legacy right now, it's not over yet. Just a new author/artist team after a short break.

    Why thank you. I believe Allya would be a very interesting character to write, but it should be handled with subtelty: she should not be your average darskider, she should be much more balanced and ambiguous.

    Speaking of the witches, I'd also like to read the story of how a "younger" Yoda* dealt with them when the Chu'unthor crashed on Dathomir. At that time, the Jedi Order seemed to have a very different way of going. The Courtship of Princess Leia describe Jedi Knights coming "before their high master to give reports." It seemed that circa 230 BBY, Jedi reported to a single individual, one who sat on a throne! (Well, the doylist explanation is that the novel was written before the prequels, but I'd like to read a watsonian interpretation of that discrepancy.)

    *"At middle age, Yoda had looked almost perky, carefree—not the bent, troubled old Jedi Luke had known."

    Alright. Something else I'd love to learn about is the origin of the Sith species and Korriban before the Dark Side came to it.
    The galaxy may have been at peace, but important stuff was still going on. For example, Ragnos, Nadd, and Vitiate (Sith Emperor).

    Well, that's a bit different because you can have untold stories in heavily-covered time periods.
    I know, but my point still stands. PAST Legacy, we have no idea. We can go back 25,000+ years for pre-movies stuff, even if some periods within that 25,000 are sparsely populated with stories, but we can go only 140-ish years past the movies.

    ragnos was dead b4 naga...but nadd went to onderon
    thats right there were things going on,but i dont know if the stories were told in lit other than the ones we know...
    which reminds me to say TOTJ shouldve went on for much longer than it did..not jumping forward to redemtion then dead.
    alot of good plots are lost in there

    Have some patience, it's only a matter of time :) Though any projects on the future, besides Legacy, are probably on hold until we see where the ST will take us.

    Exactly. I want what went on in between the sections of TOTJ to be explored further. And we all know that Ragnos remained relevant long after dying.

    A Marka Ragnos novel, of course! (Are you aware that Ragnos is the one who appointed Kun Dark Lord and said "He is ready, Nadd"?)
