Not only is it in the most over-used, over-rated era in all of Star Wars, but it's being written by that murderess of an author!

Sorry, but I have a feeling that Traviss will find a way to screw up the Clone Wars even more than it already is.

Yes, but the fact that Traviss sees the need to kill every character made by Zahn makes me so very MAD! :P

Yeah, but it was Mara, and then Pellaeon.

If Traviss had her way, Fel III would be three-quarters Mando.

I wonder what Traviss would do to me if she found out what I did to her formerly super Mandos... :lol:


Though in all seriousness regarding the topic...so what? Don't read it if you don't like her work, simple solution. :|

Well, we do subscribe to all canon before the Battle of Endor here. So, this may present some complications in the forms of new superweapons or starships for the CIS and Republic, or more frightening, more Jedi powers. Or more Jedi survivors of the Purge with ridiculously overrated powers.

I don't see what would be complicated at all...

Anything from that era would be so old and outdated by modern standards, seriously outdated, that it wouldn't matter.
And if it turns out that the book shows that they do have something that could compete with the stuff in this game or the Post-Endor era in general...well then I may have to call foul on continuity.

Powers I don't have a huge issue with, seeing as the Force is a pretty flexible thing to control, who knows how far you can manipulate it...

Yeah, it's gotten to be a bit too flexible for my tastes. I like Rachel Luttrell-flexible like from the OT and even the PT, not wet noodle flexible that the Force has become thanks to constant bombardment of Clone Wars--and therefore Jedi--material. :p

Amen. I think most of that shouldn't even be considered canon. :roll:

Or you simple set a new ground rule, VIII ascribes to all published pre-Endor canon that was around at the time of its founding, thus meaning we have no need to pay attention to things like...the Force Unleashed.

Of course. That thing they have in that game shouldn't even fly strait. Among other things. Does this mean that Yevetha also don't exist?

No...VVD did try to make a comeback with them and got bitchslapped for it I believe, the Yvetha are awful anyway, as is the BFC (though its got a lot of good info on the whole workings of the NR)

I wouldn't mind ruling all these crappy changes to the Clone Wars era non-game canon.

See, Cray has the right idea...the thing is we can manually reset the RP to take into account any new elements of canon because Lucas seems to be obessed with tinkering with the era prior to the GCW.

Can we also ban anything Traviss has or will write, in any era?

I'd say that might be taking it to an extreme.

EDIT: Now that I think of it...if you banned anything that she wrote...that means Sgt. Kal Skirata never existed...and that means my character would vanish too. :(

Ugh. Traviss should be locked up and never allowed to write in SW again. We get it, you looooove Mandos, you don't need to tarnish the rest of the story with that love by rubbing it in our faces with each novel you write. :roll:
