Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Chronology: Chronicles of the Old Republic: The Seal of Yavin 4!

Read Chronicles of the Old Republic: The Seal of Yavin 4

3,996 BBY

*All right, one last Chronicles before we thankfully leave them behind for a while. 

*So, this one finishes up The Sith War and, as the title indicates, includes some deleted material about Exar Kun’s original Sith ritual which allowed him to, briefly, possess, not the buildings of Yavin 4, but the seal of Yavin 4.

*The weakness of this plan quickly become evident.

*So, anyway, after that whole kerfuffle with the clubs and stuff, Exar decides it might be better to inhabit the buildings.

*Seriously, this does finish The Sith War up.  It is three paragraphs long and begins with the destruction of Ossus.

*It’s three paragraphs long and it spends one of those paragraphs, fully a third of its length, telling us about frigging Ood Bnar and his awesome ‘become tree’ powers. 

*This sentence is a riot:  “Too late to save their friend, Nomi used the Force to blind Ulic to the Force.”

*Oh, so those are the two options?  It’s like you have to either save him or blind him to the Force?  You couldn’t possibly ‘arrest’ him?  ‘Kill’ him?  ‘Subdue’ him?  ‘Parley’ with him?  It’s either ‘save’ or ‘blind to Force?’

*Also, why exactly is it too late to save him?  Ulic frigging surrenders and throws down his weapon and is all like, “Nomi, help me” and she’s like, “Hmm, obviously, can’t help this guy *FORCE BLIND*”

*No, in case you wonder, I haven’t gotten over how infuriating The Sith War is. 

*Was it also ‘too late to save their friend,’ when they did that whole massive rescue operation and then just walked away?  That would explain a lot.  Or perhaps not.

*Anyway, Kun possesses buildings: “The Sith War was at an end.”  Thank God.


*Absolute forbidden.  0 stars. 

*All right, we’re finally leaving this year behind and we’re actually jumping a few years into the future.  Join me as we catch up with the Jedi three years after the Sith War for Tales: Shadows & Light.
