Prophet of the Dark Side, Reep. At least, if I remember correctly he was one of them or at least affiliated somehow.

I think he could be classified as a 'low-level' Sith. Sort of a Sith groupie, or a Sith acolyte.

Yeah, I know it goes against the Rule Of Two.

But then, the fact that Palps allowed Dooku to cultivate his own cadre of Sith followers tells me that Palpatine wasn't a strict adherent to Bane's philosophy.

How does being a Dark Side adept make you a prophet? Confused
So he's sort of like Asajj Ventress or Lumiya?

I'm just remembering something I saw once. I think it was on wookiepedia

Oh okay. Now that intriques me. Maybe it was one of those guys who wrote the Caedus prophesy.

The Caedus thing was interesting. I've noticed a lot of Sith prophecies that I don't think ever really came to fruition. Sith'ari, The Chosen One, Caedus...

Oh, wow. I haven't even picked it up yet. I hope somebody else gets ahold of it, or you're going to have a long wait. Wink

How about Darth Bane?

There's actually been a lot of speculation on whether or not he could be. Anakin Skywalker is another candidate, but he didn't make them stronger. Caedus distracted the galaxy so the One Sith led by Krayt could rise in power, so that's another option. Bane seems the most likely, and I do think it could indeed be him, but I'm kinda OCD about this. I'd like some form of confirmation.

So, I went to get this book Tuesday at Barnes and Noble and could not find it anywhere!! They had the paperback version of Invincible all over the place (up front, under new releases, in the SW section) but I couldn't find Mindor. I decided to ask as calmly as I could and she spent a lot of time on the computer and finally said it was probably up front. Low and behold, it was up front stacked on a table off to the side where no one except those checking out could see. Also, I didn't know it was HC so that was a mild surprise, but I prefer it over paperback (aside from the cost) so I'm happy.

Haven't started it yet, but hopefully will within a week.

All right, I can't hold my peace for ever so I'm going to splurge this much, though I hope this doesn't raise peoples expectations to the point of crushing them, regardless, in my opinion, this is the best Star Wars book I've ever read.

Yes, I said that and I stand by it.

Good to hear! The OT era has always been my favorite segment of the Star Wars timeline. I've been itching for a new GOOD book involving our rebellion heroes in their prime. This just might be what I've been waiting for. Cool

Hearing good things is some encouragement for me to get to it sooner than later, so good to hear Smile

As much as I love Stover, I don't buy hardcover, I'll wait till it comes to paperback and then bathe in its awesomeness.
