Yeah, that works. I think she was discussing Sith holocrons at some point, but the book is at home so I can't check if I'm right. He quite probably did reclaim lost territory, though... I'm unsure as to whether it was "a lot" or simply "more than anyone else ever did". As a quick aside, I've always assumed that the "Greatest Sith Empire Ever" (if we don't count the Galactic Empire, which doesn't really have the same feel) collapsed due to infighting. Mainly because Kas'im still refers to the Battle of the Star Forge as the Sith Order's "greatest defeat". And how I hope we hear about that Dark Lord... and how I hope it's a Sith Empress. (Preferably the sith miraluka fanart, if you remember my praising of that... but I think that's unlikely) Yeah, that makes sense. The Republic, as of PoD, may simply not have a huge concern with reclaiming the Outer Rim (focusing on rebuilding its strength in the Core and Mid Rim), which would explain why they weren't "officially" at war with the Sith, but rather engaged in a series of "protracted military engagements".
