Part of me thinks that as absurd as it would be, Stover writing an Ewok book could very well be the best Star Wars book ever written.


Amazingly, I think the same. Razz

He could do a "what really happened" story...

Battle for Endor would be better than Caravan of Courage.

I don't think I'd get it. I've not seen the film but it doesn't look to be something I'm interested in, to say the least. He could write a very good story of it, I'm sure, but when it comes down to it, it'd still be about something that I can't find any interest in.

The Battle for Endor has a Nightsister and Sanyassan marauders!

I agree with Life is the Path though.

All this Sith POV stories make me realize the Force makes anything possible- what ever their belifs about the force are- they are right.

I'm not a huge stover fan like a lot here, but glad to see he's coming back in some degree.


As for novelizing the Ewok movies and making them fit better, I'd quite like that actually.

I think it's interesting that Plagueis' master was named Darth Tenebrous. As of Oct 06, 2006, Leeland Chee posted that Darth Tenebrous was an official Darth name. In an interview with the EU Cantina, James Luceno said:

Quote:
EUC: If you could name the first Darth, what name would you choose?

JL: Darth Tenebrous.


At what point was the name taken, and at what point did it become Plagueis' master?

I found the breath mask odd.... As far as I am aware the art is the only thing depicting him with a breather.

Finally got to read and finish this. Holy crap, that was kind of crazy. Its amazing the depths the Force can be delved into when you let go of your morals and embrace the Dark Side Wink

I really dug the short story. It makes me all the more excited for the Darth Plagueis novel.

Just read it and my mind is abuzz with all the little bits of information that is conveyed, almost in an off-hand manner, in this little story.

One idea I had, and I thought I'd bring it up: I remember reading that the Force is ultimately benevolent, so my theory is that, what if it's the Sith misusing it that provides the taint, and actually creates the dark side of the Force? That the Sith create the other facet of the Force through their own doing, and not that the dark side part of the ultimate Force has always been there, and that the Sith and other dark side users tap into it? Has this been explored before?

Ive read this story. Very in-depth portayal of the darkside. Really detailed. For me the Force is neither dark or light its how its used. Like a tool. The Sith use it for evil and the Jedi for good. There are some gray areas like a lot of Jedi who dabbled in the darkside but returned.
