I don't know. Can Allston and Denning write Sith? I have to seriously wonder about that. Denning did do a good job with Abeloth...I just can't escape the fact that the Sith Tribesmen aren't exactly the highest caliber Sith I've read, but they're definitely top of the barrel for lightsaber fodder Laughing

Those names were just the first names of authors to pop into my muddled little mind when I was writing the post. My point was just that I'd like to see someone tackle the Rule of Two Sith from Bane to Vader and whomever they chose to write it would be fine with me as long as it was getting done.

Of course we all know that is rubbish too though, as being a SW EU fan entitles me to harp on any little thing no matter how small and make it out to be an abomination of nature. We all try not to but we all do sometimes.

Yeah no kidding.

i'm sorry I'm just looking forward to this new duology like everybody else. I was wondering if there was anyone besides me who wants this duology to be post-FOTJ and feature the Big 3.

I'd be really hesitant about Allston doing a Sith duology, however, I'd be okay with Denning taking a stab at it. Denning did a good enough job with Abeloth that I'm pretty sure he could do a good take on the real Sith. As far as Allston goes, I'm anxious for more Wraiths Cool

I think what really sold me on Kemp was the smuggler he wrote. I loved that character.

I wouldn't at all mind it, but I'd rather see a Zannah duology. Wink

Really? Huh. I've always found Zannah to be a very uncompelling character.

I liked her. Having Cognus as her apprentice certainly makes her more intriguing as a duology character. The Sith Alchemy aspect to her was very cool.

Yeah, I found Zannah really really interesting. She doesn't use the same techniques we are used to seeing all the time like the force lightning or hurling objects around. Not that she can't, she just has all these other exotic abilities. In Dynast of Evil, that final showdown with Bane was riveting. The black mist of Draino (as I call it) that dissolves anything it touches... Shocked ... that was awesome. Also something you've not seen in SW before or since.

Now Cognus has all these mind powers. Imagine if you will that she develops all those powers in the mold of a Professor X only evil. How she could enter her enemies minds and terrify them.

The Zannah/Cognus story is the one I want more than any other in the whole EU at this point.

So, with the news that Karpyshyn's next book is tackling Malgus, I think it's safe to say that Paul S. Kemp's "ambitious" duology will not be in the TOR era. We also know it won't be out this year.

When you say 'not in the TOR era', do you mean around the events of the game, or in the Old Republic (5,000 BBY - 1,000 BBY) era?

I'd really like to see a book on Malgus. One can only hope.

By TOR era, I mean around the game. I'm pretty sure his duolgy will have nothing to do with Malgus since Drew is writing about him. Whether we'll see Kemp tasked with something down the line, that's possible. Maybe a fall/winter TOR book for next year.

Perusing through Random House's Smart Archive, I discovered this oddity when I searched for "The Old Republic."

The IBSN isn't coming up anywhere I've searched. The Old Republic: Encyclopedia has a completely different IBSN. My logical conclusion is that this is Drew Karphyshyn's untitled TOR book or The Old Republic: Deliverance or a weird glitch.

I'm guessing it's just a glitch. And I'm not familiar with 'The Old Republic: Deliverance'. Details?
