    Hi all!

    I was scouting the boards, and didn't see any threads related to "Knights of the Old Republic", so I thought I'd create one!

    So we can get the regulations out of the way, here's what is and isn't permitted:

    PERMITTED

    1. Discussions/speculation about characters/story ideas/etc regarding:
    a. KotOR/K2/interim
    b. Exar Kun
    c. TOTJ, including Nomi Sunrider, Ulic Qel-Droma, etc.
    d. The Mandalorians
    e. Sith Wars
    Essentially, it's anything during the era which KotOR takes place in (approx. 4,000 years B.B.Y.)

    2. Limited fic advertising if your fic meets any of the above-mentioned discussion criteria. Basically, limit your ad posting to one per fic, and I (or someone trusted) will try to compile a list of fics. More on that as we get there.

    3. Mild spoilers are acceptable, but (especially with K2) keep any major spoilers off this thread. After all, some people have yet to play the game(s).

    4. Fic recommendations. If you read a fic from this era that you like, post a link here so everyone can enjoy it!

    5. Material following the rules and ToS of this forum.

    NOT PERMITTED

    1. Spamming/Flaming
    I have no patience with flaming. If you cannot disagree respectfully, take it off the thread.

    Excessive postings regarding fic advertising will not be tolerated. Two or three postings is all right, ten or twenty is not. Meatbags (Violators) will have HK-47 dispatched to terminate them. Capiche?

    2. Excessive socializing
    Basically, when it starts going over two pages, it's too much. Plus it clutters up the thread for those who need assistance.

    3. Fic bashing
    If you can't say something nice about a writer's fic/character/etc, DON'T say it here. Keep things constructive, and keep them nice. 'Nuff said.

    Anyway, that's all for now. Hope to see some of you around the thread!!

    Okay, here's the way you can post an ad for your fic. It's similar to how fics are summarized in the forums:

    Title:
    Author(s):
    Characters:
    Fic Type:
    Time Period (KotOR, TOTJ, Exar Kun, etc):
    Link:
    Summary:

    **************************
    I'll go first.

    Title: Love's Final Redemption
    Author(s): SabyneAmberle
    Characters: Bastila Shan, Revan, Carth Onasi, Darth Malak, Sabyne Amberle (OC)
    Fic Type: Drama, Romance, Alternate-ending
    Time Period (KotOR, TOTJ, Exar Kun, etc): KotOR
    Link: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=18169015]Here[/link]
    Summary: Bastila has fallen to the Dark Side, and persuaded Revan and Sabyne to join her. Can their former comrades redeem them before the Republic is destroyed? Will Carth's feelings for Sabyne help him to save her, or destroy her?

    Yeah, I agree Senator_Leia. There's some great KotOR-era fics. It just seems like not many people know about that era.

    Which reminds me, here's another great fic. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Before_the_Saga/b10475/17845767/?23]The Malachor Trials[/link] by Overthrow_Jack.

    Yes, so have I. I figure we fans of the Old Republic could use a place to hang out, discuss our era, and find our fics.

    I'm just now finishing up the first game, and I like the galaxy it presents a lot. There's so much one can do with the KOTOR era. And as many Sith as you could possibly want! :p I've been meaning to write a Calo Nord vignette. I should really get to work on that...

    Good concept for a thread, SabyneAmberle.

    Thanks, The_Face!

    I'm having a similar problem finding a Beta Reader for the fanfic Archiveas I did finding a thread. Not a lot of people are familiar with this era, so a couple people have said "Sorry, can't help you". But I won't give up so easily. If I can't find a Beta, I guess I'll see where things go from there.

    It appears we have chosen a unique timeframe to be fans of. But I imagine more people will come as they learn more.

    Also, your idea for a Calo Nord fic is great! Give it a shot!!

    Getting this thread back on track, I have a few more fics to add:

    The quite funny [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Before_the_Saga/b10475/19487494/?3]Knights of the Old Republic: The End User Strikes Back[/link] by Commander-DWH

    And a few fics of my own:

    Okay, I finally got my Calo viggie posted. Here are the stats...

    Title: One, Two, Three
    Author: The_Face
    Characters: Calo Nord, Canderous Ordo
    Fic Type: vignette
    Time Period: KotOR
    Link: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Before_the_Saga/b10475/19593540/?4]here[/link]
    Summary: Calo Nord's thoughts leading up to and during his fight with three of the Ebon Hawk's crew

    Did I do that correctly? Each indexer has their own preferences...
