    " Behind closed doors, Podracing insiders allege that the accomplishments of the Ratts Tyerell Foundation is merely a convenient cover for an authoritarian crack-down from upper levels of the Republic government. This claim was recently flatly denied by the Supreme Chancellor's aide, Sate Pestage"

    "The decades-long civil war came to a month-long standstill during negotiations headed by Jedi Knights Empatojayos Brand, Bultar Swan and Chellemi Chuovvick."

    "A Shadow Falls, Tyranny Reborn and Dark Romance"

    Weren't these suspected titles for Episode 2?

    Do you think they're going to close this site after AotC, or do you think they'll keep it running at least the next 3 years to Episode III?

    Hard to say, it would be difficult since there is only 2 years between AOTC and Episode 3...so the issues wouldn't be able to come out in real-time anymore. Perhaps they'd bring it down to once every other week or something.

    EDIT- perhaps they'll go back in time and give us "back issues" past issue 45?

    >Notice that Empatajoyos Brand was fighting in the Sepan war...

    Not fighting- negotiating.

    I'm surprised no one picked up on the Sorcerer of Tund reference. "It's not the Force! It's Magic! (TM)" LOL.

    In answer to the fteiks comments in the locked thread. In actuality there was really only one source that said that first contact with the mon cals was after the empire took over.

    But all other sources including farlander papers allows for old republic knowledge of the mon cals and quarrens.

    Even TPM showed the quarrens. I'm aware that though a fix was tried to be made for the quarrens(from inside the worlds of star wars), that they are senators from a quarren colony world.

    But it would seem that darkhorse ignored it, when they created hunt for aurra sing.

    Who knows perhaps we will see the ol' fish heads in ep 2, or 3, which would conflict with that part of the EU anyways, so perhaps they are just changing the matter now to ease people into it.

    On the other hand that would leave that first contact story which only 1 or 2 sources mention as being propaganda of some type.

    Perhaps originally spread by empire when they tried to rewrite and change the knowledge of history to one that better honors the glories of the empire.

    Yeah quarren and Mon Cal have appeared all over the prequel era:

    Jedi Apprentice - Bant (Mon Cal)
    JC: Acts of War - Tikkes
    Cloak of Deception - Tikkes
    TPM - Quarren on Tatooine and Tikkes and Tessek
    The Hunt for Aurra Sing - Tikkes and Quarren entourage
    The Devaroninan Version - Quarren
    Crossbones - Quarren and Mon Cal


    There are quite a few other sources, I'm sure...

    Damn you Sturm, I came in here excited that it was a new giant ace thread, only to see that you changed the thread title! :mad: :p

    And add the Mon Calamari pod-race track from Racer Revenge. . . along with some weird little fish guy who is supposedly from Mon Cal.
