The eighth issue of Threat of Peace catches up with Jedi Knight Satele Shan and Master Dar’Nala as they travel to the Outer Rim to ensure that Republic military withdrawals are conducted in accordance [...]

Please don't tell me that we'll see Nar Shaddaa again.

Rather Nar Shaddaa than Tatooine.

God yes. Enough bloody sand.


I cant imagine anything interesting would have been happening on Tatooine around that time anyway, so hopefully we won't have to go there.


Give me some Jungle planets. Or an archipelago planet.

I hope they don't show Nar Shaddaa or Tatooine! Every time LA has the opportunity to establish new worlds, they blow it by revisiting the same ones.

@ Issue# 8 - I'm interested into finding out more about Satele Shan and Lord Angral!

I like Nar Shadaa.

Interesting thing about Tatooine:
When I first started playing Galaxies, I was all excited to play in the SW universe. See different worlds. First place I end up. Tatooine... Let me escape from my life in the Arizona Desert into... desert... DAMMIT!!!

A traditional scene of young Jedi moping and/or bitching about things not going their way. Who doesn't like to see a scene like this every time something bad happens in the EU?

Saak-Fii sure is a model Jedi. Find a droid walking past your room, and your first instinct, if you ask her, is to kill it.

Wait a minute, that idiot is a Jedi Master? These comics are so out of line.

Why the **** are the Sith Lords meeting to discuss the future of their empire in a casino on Nar ****ing Shaddaa?

...aaand we get to meet Naatu, the ****ing ugliest being in the universe.

Oh, so they're gangsters, not Sith. I couldn't tell - they're so poorly drawn and the dialogue gave no indication.

Now we need to have the bad guys carry out their obligatory killing of one of their henchman, so that the mentally retarded portion of their fanbase will be able to tell that they're bad guys.

Because being on Nar Shaddaa once in K2 was too much?

Um...Kashyyyk? Dxun?

So you'd prefer 50 completely new planets that no one is familiar with? It goes either way, and frankly the cool thing about KOTOR and TSL is that it was a decent balance between the two.

Agreed.

At least she's on her feet. The classic Jedi problem is that they are just sitting around meditating, unaware of what is happening in REAL LIFE, and then...BAM! The Sith return and kick their butt until the dashing young hero steps in and activates the deus ex machina to defeat the evil Overlord.

Perhaps the fact that you say Nar Shaddaa and did not anticipate gangsters/Hutts/Exchange but Sith might be the problem?

Um...yes, that's actually kind of necessary actually. Not everyone in the Star Wars fan base has the privilege of being experienced, mature individuals yet. At one time in our lives, we all needed the comic to give us a big indication that these are the good guys and these are the bad guys. Is this comic so bad for doing that? A lot of good franchises fail because they appeal too much to the most mature, intelligent individuals and thus have too small a following.


As of 3/14/10, TSL is restored. The Sith Lords Restored Content Modification by Stoney and Zbyl has been finished and can be downloaded here.
