    I think it's more EU to chew on... Now the question is, are the purits gonna consider it canon ?

    (Hey, it's written 'Chandrila' on the first page, after all :eek: )

    EDIT : SENATOR GARM BEL IBLIS

    They definitively ain't gonna consider it canon !!! :D

    EDIT 1 : This looks really really really cool... So 'in-universe'...

    EDIT 2 : Try 0-0-0 for the wether report... Lol... Magma on Coruscant ?

    EDIT 3 : Oh... It's random. :(

    YES...I thought that it would be years until we'd have exact date placements for Prequel Events. This appears to be a new, cool thing to do, much like the LucasArts NRI reports.

    I love you Lucasfilm! [face_love]

    Down there. Written in Aurebesh. (C) Lucasfilm 2002.

    EDIT : Oh, you meant that...

    EDIT 1 : "COCO DISTRICT, CORUSCANT -- Commuters are advised that Skyroute D25D, which connects the Coco District to the Boribos and Hirkenglade Prefectures, will be detoured from Kansen Entrance to Trotus Exit, starting tomorrow. Necessitating the redirection of traffic is the construction of a new refuse launch port to help combat the growing garbage crisis in Coco District. Central Services estimates the traffic rerouting will be in effect for a standard week."

    Seems someone's been reading Rogue Planet @ LFL. :D

    Yeah Val, I just saw that too... Everything is being pieced together !!! Yeeehahaha !

    Did you see Balmorra, as well ? I was mentionning it a few days ago... Seems the planet's neutral, more or less. With Baktoid doing BD, and another company the AT-TEs I suppose.

    EDIT : And we got a SoroSuub logo, finally :

    This is AWESOME!

    If it is official, which looks like it is, then I consider it canon! :)

    Again, I can't stress how awesome this is, this will be a DAY LONG REMEMBERED for Star Wars fans!!! :)

    What a great idea from LFL! :)

    "NEW VERTICA, NAR SHADDAA -- Authorities are still attempting to discover the source of an unregistered and therefore illegal bounty posting on Count Dooku of Serenno found on a Nar Shaddaa datanet. The posting, offering 1 million Republic credits standard for the delivery of Dooku's remains, was discovered two weeks ago on the public datanet. The posting was not listed in the Republic Enforcement DataCore or the Bounty Hunters Guild. The contact information leads to a dummy message account from which no leads were discovered. The Republic has roundly rejected involvement in the posting of the bounty on the secessionist movement's loudest advocate. "This current crisis will be resolved through procedure and negotiation, not illegal vigilantism," stressed Mas Amedda, Vice Chair of the Senate. "

    We've got Dooku's homeworld!...Serenno.

    And the Jedi refusing to return the baby story is too funny ! [face_laugh]

    And there are Z95 on the website !!!

    OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT : THIS IS NOT A WEBSITE FOR PURISTS.

    EDIT 1 : "Others, like Senator Garm Bel Iblis (Corellia), were more pragmatic about the issue. "Where is this army going to come from? Who will get stuck with the bill for its creation? The Republic taxpayer. We should stay with Planetary Security Forces that have worked for centuries. The Corellian people are not going to pay for both CorSec and this Republic Army.""

    Coooool !

    "The Supreme Chancellor avoided partisan arguments, though his past statements have indicated he is against the Military Creation Act. "My ultimate goal is a peaceful resolution to this conflict, above all," said Palpatine at the end of his announcement. "But if such a resolution requires the creation of a military, as decreed by the Senate, then I will abide by the will of the Republic, a Republic that has stood strong for a thousand generations, that has enjoyed peace for a thousand years."


    So, they have had overall peace since the battle of ruusan, but have a republic that has been around 25,000 years, :D.

    Neat little reference to AJ Holonets: they're using the exact same calender. Note that it says its the year "13" ...remeber that in the AJs, the Battle of Yavin was year "35."

    35 - 13 = 22!

    22 BBY! so cool!

    BTW, you'll notice it defaults to /46/

    You can go back to number 45, but before that there's nothing. Cool stuff about Ando.

    [blockquote]Less than two standard hours after this morning's secession of Ando and Sy Myrth was made official, jubilant anti-Republic protestors filled the streets of Quantill City's busy Raquish Thoroughfare, celebrating the separation... [/blockquote]

    It really shouldn't be using the BBY should it? I mean that battle hasn't even happened yet. Shouldn't have some old republic dating system?
