Seeking Details on the Farlander Papers
 
I am researching the Farlander Papers that was included in the Limited Edition of X Wing. I have found some of the text I believe but wondered if anyone has a complete copy and can post the table of contents or list the sections...i am trying to be sure i have a complete copy of the contents.

thanks

What i have seems to be most of it, but i wanted to be sure i have the whole thing.

If you can find a copy of the strategy guide, that will have the Farlander Papers, as well.

CrisG 08-27-2009 02:01 PM

Actually I think there are some things in the Farlander Papers that are not in the strategy guide (and vice versa).

UPDATE:

I got my copy of the Official Strategy Guide and it is a HUGE book, and i see the Farlander story runs thru the whole thing, in each section,there is a LOT of fascinating material here. I still am very curious what was in the original farlander papers in the Limited Edition release of X Wing.... i found some portions already, and this is the main sectin of what i found ..i think, from the original......

This is the main piece of what i found....and then there are some additonal sections...

starts with......

Star Wars
X-Wing Game
The Farlander Papers
updated : 11.XI.2006
################################################## #############################
From the Chronicles of the Rebel Alliance
Introduction
The Old Republic is no more. The Galaxy is threatened by an evil Empire, ruled by a
creature on the Dark Side of the Force. Only a small, but growing, Rebellion can stop the
spread of terror and tyranny. A few dedicated freedom fighters travel the galaxy, uniting
the separate planetary Resistance groups into a single, unified Alliance. This is the
story of one critical period in the history of the Alliance.
Chapter 1
Rebel Cruiser Independence
In Transit to Agamar in the Lahara Sector
"Some soothing Dagoban bentaxne berry tea, Madam?" The protocol droid stood rock-still,
bent at the waist like the major domo of a fancy Celanon restaurant. His saucer-like eyes
stared blankly, perpetually optimistic. In his hand he held a tray with a steaming
plastcore cup.
"No, thank you, Deesix," answered Mon Mothma, Chief of State of the Rebel Alliance. A
former senator of the old Republic, Mon Mothma had played a pivotal role in the
unification of the scattered forces of resistance to the Empire. As the elected head of
the Alliance, she held absolute power of command, but now she rested in her private study,
her feet up on her desk. She was noticeably tired. The years of unceasing travel,
gathering support for the growing Rebel movement, weighed heavily on her. With a visible
effort, she sat straight at her desk as the droid approached, smiling wistfully, and said,
"I’ve got several hours of work still ahead of me."
"As you wish, Madam," the droid said, walking stiffly over to the recycler and placing the
cup in it. "If you don’t mind, Madam, I’ll go on half power, then." The Chief of State
nodded her agreement and turned her attention to the terminal on her desk.
An hour passed in silence as Mon Mothma worked her way through a stack of recent
communiques. Her voice droned softly into the terminal receiver and every once in a while
she bent over the security coupler to sign off with a retinal scan and voice
authorization. The droid stood statue-like, his body upright, his head slumped forward as
if asleep.
"Deesix?"
The droid was instantly at attention. "Madam?"
"Didn’t you tell me earlier that there was a new speech for me to deliver tomorrow?"
"Indeed I did, Madam. I have it here somewhere. Oh, where did I put it?" The droid
shuffled across the room, his head moving back and forth jerkily. Finally he stopped in
front of a cabinet and opened a drawer. "Here it is!" he announced, holding up a small
holo disk.
Meanwhile, Mon Mothma saw that she had two more messages on the net. She punched up the
first of them:
To: Mon Mothma
From: Arhul Hextrophon
Mon Mothma:
I’ve given your droid, D6-L5, a new draft of the speech you wrote. Please look it over and
send final comments to my office. As you know, Mon Mothma, you will be delivering this
speech tomorrow on Agamar. They have a growing resistance movement, but have not yet
committed to the Alliance. This new speech should help decide them, along with the
leaflets and the new holos you saw last week.
I will be available at any time, if you should wish to contact me.
Respectfully,
Arhul Hextrophon
The second memo read:
To: Mon Mothma
From: Lazlo
You should meet a new ambassador in two weeks.
There was no signature. Mon Mothma’s forehead creased as she deleted this innocent-looking
message. It was in a very private code. Automatically, she had deciphered it. "Lazlo" was
really General Madine. "You should meet a new ambassador" meant she was needed to plan
operations against a priority Imperial target. "In two weeks," in this context, meant in
two days.
She looked up with a start. Deesix was placing the holo disk on the desk before her. "Is
something wrong, Madam?" he asked.
With a sigh, she picked up the holo disk. "No, Deesix. Everything is all right. You may as
well rest again, though. I shall be a while yet."
"As you wish, Madam," answered the droid, instantly reassuming the sleep position.
Mon Mothma popped the disk in its slot and began to read. As she read, she corrected and
annotated the speech using her light pen. Lazlo’s message had been noted and mentally
filed. She would head for Mon Calamari right after the speech on Agamar.
A CALL TO REASON
SPEECH TO BE DELIVERED FIRST ON AGAMAR
BEINGS OF THE GALAXY UNITE! SHED THE YOKE OF IMPERIAL OPPRESSION!
THANK YOU FOR COMING TODAY. IT IS A PLEASURE T0 BE ONCE AGAIN ON THE BEAUTIFUL PLANET OF
AGAMAR. FIRST I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THIS AREA HAS BEEN SURROUNDED BY OUR FORCES. IT IS
HEAVILY SHIELDED. OUR BATTLE CRUISER ORBITS ABOVE US, AND PICKET DROIDS HAVE BEEN
DEPLOYED. IN OTHER WORDS. THERE IS N0 CHANCE OF AN IMPERIAL SURPRISE ATTACK. YOU ARE SAFE
AMONG US... FOR THE MOMENT.
DID YOU KNOW...
THAT THE OLD REPUBLIC WAS A DEMOCRATIC UNION OF WORLDS GOVERNED BY A DULY ELECTED SENATE!
THAT IT REPRESENTED THE NEEDS OF ALL BEINGS REGARDLESS OF RACE, SPECIES, OR HOME SECTOR?
THAT "EMPEROR" PALPATINE WAS ONCE A SENATOR. AND THAT HE HAS SEIZED POWER, STOLEN OUR
FREEDOMS, DISBANDED THE SENUTE, AND CRUSHED ALL DISSENT?
THAT THE CURRENT EMPIRE IS IN THE PROCESS OF SUBJUGATING OR DESTROYING THE NON-HUMAN RACES?
THAT THERE IS HOPE?
TAKE A MOMENT WITH ME NOW, MY FRIENDS, AND LEARN ABOUT THE GREATEST PERIL OUR GALAXY HAS
EVER FACED! THERE IS HOPE. BUT ONLY IF YOU KNOW WHY YOU’RE FIGHTING. DO YOU KNOW WHO YOUR
FRIENDS ARE? DO YOU KNOW YOUR ENEMY?

.......................... ends with.....

Finally he fell into a deep sleep, and in his dreams he heard a voice-a voice at once
alien and yet strangely familiar . . .
"Life creates it. Makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are
we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. But beware the Dark Side.
If once you start down the Dark Path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you,
it will. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense; never for attack. There is no
why. There is no try. There is do. Or do not."

I was finally able to purchase a full copy of the Farllander Papers, it is a very interesting read and gives one of the best 'in universe" views of the Star Wars story that I have ever seen. The Steele Chronicles is also useful if you can find it.

So how much was there that wasn't in the official strategy guide?

Edit: Missed a post in the thread heh.

If my memory serves me correctly, the strategy guide was a far better story telling experience than the actual Farlander papers was. Plus the guide expanded upon the original papers.

I don't think that there was a huge amount from the papers that was left out of the guide. I have both the farlander papers and Steele Chronicles buried in the attic at my parents house, probably both still in their respective game boxes.

The Steele was an amazing read though. I read that many times over. And the Tie Fighter strategy guide which expanded upon that was fantastic as well.
Ah memories, I'm going to have to read them again!
