    If nothing else, this book is worth it for the incredible illustrations. Also, the section on other Force users is quite expansive, instead of a mere mention in a final chapter or something.

    You said earlier that the Sith section mentions the powers they have. Does the same thing apply for the Jedi, or are there just too many to list? In other words, is there a listing of all known Force powers, be they Jedi, Sith, Light, Dark, Jensaarai, Fallanassi, Allyan magic (Witches of Dathomir), etc.?

    How does the however you pronounce Bpfasshi look like? Can you PM?

    I brought this topic up last year, but I think places like wookieepedia will have a growing impact on merchandise sales. There's a page that lists all the pics from every article and guide. If I wanted to buy an alien guide for the pics but didn't care for the RPG stats -- sorry, dp4m -- I could just see the alien scum right there. I think in time these amazing Jedi vs Sith are going to appear on it.

    And as desirable as that is for me, I'm sorry to say it's wrong to see.

    Not any more.

    Some, but not all.

    I've still got the link, QG. It's got every pic of the NEC, the guides, Cracken's Threat something, etc. It's fantastic . . . but I don't think it's right to do.

    The galleries are no longer there, for the reason you've said. If an image is not used in an actual article (as opposed to a gallery) it is deleted. As is the gallery.

    Hey, any new info on Yoda's duel with the Bppfashi Dark Jedi? We've seemed to be all over the place on whether or not it was on Dagobah/not on Dagobah.

    You're seeing a "gallery with every image from a sourcebook in it"? Please enlighten me as to which one, since there are no "complete" galleries left.

    As I said, none of those galleries are "complete", they only contain '''images from those books already used in other articles on Wookieepedia''', there are no longer images that "only" appear in galleries.

    NOTE: Please don't ask me to post everything from this book. A few images here and there, I'm quite fine with. But I just don't want this to get out of hand. I hope no one gets offended by this request, and I'm certainly not directing this at anyone specifically, but I just don't want this to turn into "Post x, y, and z pic plz!"

    No, you're totally right. We've milked enough out of you already, and have plenty of fodder for discussion. Take a break, eat some alphaghetti! I know I am.

    It's not a problem of me being tired of doing it, I just am against things like putting an entire book online. I'd do anything for you guys. [:D]

    Hey, any new info on Yoda's duel with the Bppfashi Dark Jedi? We've seemed to be all over the place on whether or not it was on Dagobah/not on Dagobah.

    Nope, unless I missed it. That pic is about it.

    *shrugs*

    I don't know if they're all the imagery in a given guide, only it's a sure lot of them. Given time, I'm sure the Jedi vs Sith ones will appear too.

    Because consensus was to get rid of galleries IIRC.

    [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/index.php?title=Forum:A_notice_regarding_images_and_the_EGTTF&t=20071117041216]No it won't.[/link]

    <i>Since the community recently decided (at a recent Mofference) to begin phasing out image galleries in favor of images categorization, and because of copyright concerns, a gallery for this book will not be created. And images uploaded from the book deemed redundant and unnecessary by administrators will be deleted on sight.</i>

    Doesn't get any more clear than that.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    It's funny reading through everything and seeing what the fans pick out.
    I think you've managed to recognize just about everyone in the huge crowd scenes - thankfully. About half the Jedi on Zenoma Sekot were made up by me (it's a huge crowd and not that many are mentioned by name).

    Shannon McRandle was very nice and posed for all my Mara pics during Celebration Europe. The big funeral portrait should be a little more recognizable in the book than the scan.
    Jason is standing behind Luke hence he's a little shorter from that angle.
    Ben's hair? I didn't know it was supposed to be red. Had I known I definitely would have made sure. I guess I should have read Wookieepedia (it does say red), but all three pics in Ben's entry, which I did check, show it as blond like Luke's.
    FYI - It's funny that Wookieepedia has my own hair color wrong (it's brown, not black).
    Ben and Luke in grey robes? Was it specifically mentioned in the funeral chapter of Sacrifice? That's all I had to go on since the book wasn't out at the time. That chapter does only say "masters" not the masters council so I dropped in Streen and Octa since I needed people and they could have been there.

    I'm planning to start a blog over on starwars.com to reveal some of the stories behind the art of this book. Lots to tell since we've been working on it for many months.

    Chris

    I knew it, I knew she looked familiar...[face_thinking]

    EDIT: Maybe I should pay attention to the join date.

    My scans really don't do your work justice, but I bet most consider them the sneak preview before the real show begins. My own personal compliments on the fantastic work throughout by the way. And also to Tommy Lee Edwards as well, I really liked his Sidious and Yoda v. Bpfasshi Dark Jedi.
