Thanks to you for your attention to detail. It makes it a pleasure to follow.
Just doing my job.
Hey Abel what do you think about Stover new book "Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor" that was just announced. As, I thought you would have opinion on it as it deals with Shadowspawn.
I'm excited about Matt Stover's new book. I'm a big fan of his Star Wars work.
I think I've mentioned before that I had written a new backstory for Shadowspawn in a project on Imperial Warlords I'd co-authored with Dan Wallace for Polyhedron in 2004, before they lost the Star Wars license. As Dan, the Polyhedron editor, and myself are the only ones to have ever seen the text, however, don't expect Shadows of Mindor to incorporate my take on Shadowspawn. Nonetheless, Stover is a very competent Star Wars writer, and I expect the story to be quite entertaining.
Hey Abel, I recall you mentioning that in your Fact Files article for Empire: Betrayal, you had a mention of Atha Prime that got cut. I'm trying to source a Wookieepedia article, and I was wondering if you could confirm and/or expand on that.
Hullo there Abel.
As a sign of gratitude to your inadvertant "Making easier of Wookieepedia editing", I'll dedicate the [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Halagad_Ventor]Halagad Ventor[/link] Featured Article to you.
Sure. First of all, I do confirm that I made the reference and that it was cut from the final print article. The reference was vague, IIRC, but suggested that, at some point in his past, Trachta was in cahoots with Atha Prime. At that time, Empire: Betrayal was the first story to canonize the "stormtroopers are clones" theory, and I wanted to help fuel reader speculation by adding Atha Prime to the fire.
That's awesome, Elipsis. What an honor. That's quite an impressive article, in terms of writing and layout. I'm surprised you guys squeezed so much info out of so few sources!
Hopefully I can add more to Halagad's backstory before it's featured on the main page.
Thanks a bunch.
I'll give you a "canonise Ventor's torture on the Exactor" for an "all my money".
Actually, that's a pretty poor deal.
Man we hope so too.
For which of us? (I just don't know how much money you have. )
He even sounds like me.
Celebration 4 coming up soon here in LA, folks! Any of you gonna be there?
I won't be, but fellow Aussie Wookieepedian Arf will be making the long arduous trip state-side....
A fine ambassador. I expect to see him at the Wookieepedia Trivia event.
see you at C4, o prophet!
Yeah, well, as a Wookieepedia administrator, we kinda had to not let him be a contestant.
Howdy folks! [link=http://blogs.starwars.com/abelgpena/88]Back from C4![/link]
It was really great meeting so many of you guys. Hope those of you who were at the Meet & Greet enjoyed the Skywalker wine! And many thanks for the T-shirt, Wookieepedians!
Also, I met with several Star Wars licensee editors throughout Celebration, and without saying too much, I'll impart that I should be working on some very cool new Star Wars projects soon. In the meantime, I've posted this blog about my various recent writing projects:

Alas, I missed you again, jawajames! Maybe the Force just couldn't handle a vergence of two of Waru's prophets.
I believe Arf's currently partying around the world for the next few weeks. [Napoleon]Lucky![/Napoleon]
"Hell, its about time!"
Good luck with the projects.
seriously! let's plan to almost meet up at comic-con - at least there, i think we've proven that we can at least be in the same room at the same time and not know it!
And Vader's Legacy abideth still in the Netherworld of the Force.
I just invoiced a couple. You should see em soon.
Alas, I had a rehearsal and wedding to attend as a groomsman smack in the middle of Comic-Con this year. The selfishness of childhood friends, eh?
Sadly. It's putting up a Herculean fight, though. Who will win?
Hi Mr.Pena, i really liked your Evil Never Dies artical on the Sith in Insider that was great stuff, very well written, do you have any plans to do an updated version after LOTF has been finished?and this would also probably include much of Legacy as well because LOTF wont be finished until next august, but that would be great to expand on all of the new history, i also like your other work as well.
I love it!!!
[hl=black]Yeah, I'm not really seeing the relevance of that to this thread.[/hl]
I was wondering: will we ever be hearing more about the Order of the Canted Circle? There isn't much information about the upper class of the Galactic Empire and that's one of the few mentions of it we have.
...brief commercial break...
Hope you're well, dear Abel. Happy Holidays to you!
...that is all...back to regular programming...
