Damn. Awesome idea, Weiss. I'd love to read this, but I'll admit it sounds like a colossal effort to put this together >_>

Working on Dark Hearts now. Dark Hearts is a long thread, and unlike some other threads, I don't plan to cut it down as much (minus taking out a couple characters like Silas (due to not really needed) and Fawn (cannibalism subplot unnecessary)).

Sure. Originally I had wondered if I should replace Saren with the Imperial mole, but found Saren to play a bigger role than I initially thought. I'm also going to play him as the red herring for the imperial mole for readers initially, only to have it be revealed later that Saren is no one's pawn and that Apollo is the mole.

I found the peace summit thread and the thread where he gives Balkk to the Dathomir Moff, but I wasn't able to find the thread in which Balkk was captured.

Also, I'll be fleshing out unwritten battles for Zaddja, Gannaria, or Codia. If you're interested, I could use your help in writing one of those battles with you, having a focus on Saren's involvement.

Red Herring sounds pretty good and whatever help you need, I'm here for ya'.

Indeed. I have no illusions it'll be a cake walk. I just hope I can do the awesome characters like Andraste justice.

The Prologue for the Star Wars Legacies Abridged Version has been posted, found here. The prologue comes from a Sith mingling on Korriban that turned south quickly; the thread, Dark Hearts (aka Giant Sith Techno Party), can be found here. Originally 6 pages of posts on the site (or 35 pages on Word Document at 12 sized Times New Roman), I've condensed it to a single post (or 10 pages on Word Document). I've changed a few things. The individual who attacked Geist Weiss was not originally Montross Vandergruff, but another alchemist named Azool. To cut on characters, and to help explain why Montross later has a beef with Geist and Darth Vereor, I decided to give Montross the role Azool originally played. In the original thread on the site, Montross actually was trying to support Geist and end the violence. I also cut out the cannibalistic Fawn element from the story, deciding to end it right before her cannibalism, as it works out well. I also decided to retcon it being a few years in the past, to explain why people improved since then.

In future entries, I plan to alternate between the POVs, but I felt Andelka served a good POV for the entire story, so I kept it only her POV.

I'm considering reviving this. I'd probably do more changes, such as removing more characters, switch some roles, etc. For example, the ousted GM will be Lecchamemnon rather than Beric to give his reminiscence during the final battle more meaningful. Bastele will have always been chief of state. Ebberla replaces Sebastian as Della's teacher. I'm considering taking out the Fel Conspiracy. And others.

You don't know how excited I was to see Vereor

:ohyes:

I liked it Weiss, keep up the awesome working when you can. I'd love to see a novelization based on the members actions in different threads. Battles should be fun, but difficult, to get down into a flowing prose form.

The timeline has a lot of rich lore and interesting plots. I've been tempted to make a novel series based off the adventures of Geist Weiss and others of the Third Galactic Civil War (titled Sleepless, to reference how Geist is seeking a dream of order that he'll never be able to reach), though due to copyright would have to create an entire new universe and lore, which could be interesting. Already have brainstormed thoughts on the matter (and tricky figuring out how to give credit to all the work everyone's done on the site).

Vereor is an awesome character. In the novel series brainstorming I mentioned above, for alien species I'm planning to have not as many as SW has. Originally I wasn't gonna have any reptillian species, but Vereor sold me in putting on in my notes.

Hands of Healing - Jedi Andreus recovers from fight with Oseth; maybe part of flashback saga involving Andraste's departure from the Jedi, with Andreus having been survivor of Exodeus attack, leading to Jhon's assumption Andraste was forcefully taken by Exodeus; could be merged with this thread's prequel, told from Andreus' retelling

I've decided to officially turn this into a Chronicles Storyline, set in the past (pre-Prequels), abiding by the site's lore and NuCanon's lore (as opposed to Fifth Timeline originally taking place in Legends lore and taking place 1000 years after Battle of Yavin); for example, to try to keep with the Canon view of Rule of Two, I've made it where most of the cannonfodder Sith are Artififcial Sith plus the Rule refers primarily to the Leaders of the Sith. For example, rather than a larger empire, I decided to condense the Sith holdings into a smaller swath of area, because honestly I grow tired of the Sith taking over half the galaxy every war, so while it will have grave impacts on the galaxy during its conflict, it won't be galaxy-spanning, per se. I've renamed the Imperium to the Sith Kingdom because it tickles my fancy. This has happened a few other places too, such as naming some ships in honor of some of the writers in Fifth Timeline, such as Darth Exodeus' flagship being the Demiurge and Della's group of friends flying in the light freighter Prancing Yawn.

To give a little context to the storyline, the Sith Kingdom founded by the late Darth Aevum is situated right next to the Corporate Sector. For a few decades now, the Kingdom has been non-hostile, expanding its territory slowly (into non-Republic Space). They have largely been leaving the Jedi alone, due to the directive of its king, Darth Judicar, who basically views Force users as a higher life form destined to rule non-Force users and sees Jedi as simply misguided. His apprentice, Darth Exodeus (the primary antagonist), however, has grander plans. The Jedi have, through pressure by the Republic, left the Kingdom alone, because the Republic doesn't want to be drawn into another war.

Currently in process of revamping my notes, and condensing the cast (in other words, merging a few characters to trim down the large amount so easier to follow, especially since some characters can fill in for other characters); granted, the story still has an ensemble cast. Right now my Dramatis Personae (I've noted who the original creators of some of these characters are in brackets) is looking as follows:

Jedi:
  • Della (TweedPawn): One of the primary POV characters; a Sith test subject freed and recruited by the Jedi; pacifist
  • Ebberla "Ebb" Daw (Gaba): One of the primary POV characters; Jedi knight, who will be active in the conflict against the Kingdom
  • Dai (Jiang): Jedi Councilor or Master; supports Predor's movement though initially not involved
    • Originally named Daisuke, but wanted to make closer to a Star Wars name
  • Jhon Cordatus (Bac): Jedi Councilor who once trained Andraste and seeks her redemption; neutral towards Kingdom but anti-Exodeus (who recruited Andraste to Sith)
  • Kara Vaalki (Boli): Jedi Master who lost seat on Council years ago after her affair with a Serenno noble was exposed; serves as Jedi ambassador on Coruscant
  • Lain Derisma (Black Noise): Jedi Padawan; friend of Della
  • Leafskipper (Prancing Yawn): Jedi Councilor who trains Della
  • Lecchamemnon (Denzein): Jedi Grandmaster (against war with Kingdom initially)
  • Predor Logath (Phil): A Jedi who is rallying a coterie of Jedi to resist the Kingdom in secret (Ebb among them)
  • Ruj (Dmitri): Temple Guard; friend of Ebb
    • Originally named Bellatrix La Rouge, but wanted to make closer to a Star Wars name
  • Skhai (Empress): Jedi Master; Jhon's friend

Sith Kingdom:
  • Andraste (Sreeya): One of the primary POV characters; Jedi-turned-Sith; Darth Exodeus' apprentice; strong telepath found by Jhon Cordatus & later tempted to Dark Side by Exodeus
  • Darth Exodeus (Demiurge): Primary Antagonist; Darth Judicar's apprentice; suspected of being an Artificial Sith of immense power; has unhealthy interest with Andraste
  • Darth Aevum (SWRP Lore): The deceased Kingdom founder; Judicar's old master
  • Bhalr (Boli): Artificial Sith with a known hatred for Jedi
  • Doctor Geiss (Dmitri): Force sensitive mad scientist responsible for the creation of the Artificial Sith
    • Originally named Geist Weiss but renamed to have a more Star Wars name
  • Darth Judicar (Malon): Longtime king of Sith Kingdom; Force religious zealot, viewing non-Force users as inferior (suspected to be mind-controlling Corporate Sector leaders in order to secure resources)
  • Oonoo (Zach): Celegian admiral; originally from Corporate Sector but converted to Kingdom's religious zealotry
    • Merged all the Imperium admirals (Konstantine, Lucifel, etc. into Oonoo; used this one over the others as I felt a brain-in-a-jar was a more distinguishable character from the others)
  • Prince Oseth (DarkCloud): Judicar's son who serves as ambassador to the Republic; weak in the Force, thus losing title of heir apparent to the Sith; potential love interest for Andraste
    • Merging of a couple Sith, including Silas (an actual love interest for Andraste); was unrelated to Judicar in original timeline
  • Raide Skarda (Kiro): Sith diplomat serving adjutant to Oseth; Artificial Sith
    • Originally named Raide Vakri but was gaining, at the time I made the change, a lot of characters with Va+k so I used her Darth name as surname to help distinguish her from other characters
  • Remy (Rev): Spy for Kingdom; oversaw an orphanage kidnapping children to be test subjects for Artificial Sith projects
  • Rookwrr (Clayton): Wookie Artificial Sith
  • Judge Vereor (Rom): Warrior and general serving Judicar and viewed as Exodeus' "pet assassin"

Republic:
  • Nathanaeu Bastele (Bac): One of the primary POV characters; Supreme Chancellor, having recently won elections against Valafar Lamartine
  • Guhoo (Gaja): Republic general
    • No longer a Jedi Battlemaster but Republic didn't have really any notable generals so I repurposed him
  • Liile Glegor (TAC): Khil Senator of Belnar
  • Valafar Lamartine (Lilith): Former Supreme Chancellor, who was largely responsible for continuing Republic's non-aggression stance towards Kingdom

Others:
  • Corden Vencu (Vencu): Mandalorian who is against the Kingdom; successor to Sisk's movement
    • Different from Fifth Timeline, where Corden was pro-Imperium
  • Death Toll (DeathToll): mercenary fighting in Prologue battle
    • Debating whether to make Mando or replace with Mando
  • Delun (Jiang): Pro-Republic mercenary, working with Vhalanestilliegan; later friend/ally of Ebb
  • Sisk Renelo (Sisk): Mandalorian leading movement of Mandalorians seeking to go against Mand'alor's decree for neutrality in the conflict; wants vengeance for death of wife
    • Originally in Part 2 of timeline which I'm not covering, but I enjoyed Battle of Zigoola a lot so I decided to transfer him over
  • Vhalanestilliegan Crewellunstestry (Dmitri): Pro-Republic mercenary, working with Delun
    • Originally a Sith pilot; switched sides since in original timeline the Sith struck against a Jedi flagship but in this it'll be an anti-Kingdom group of starfighters striking against a Kingdom flagship (thinking Exodeus is aboard)

Will probably post my rough timeline for the Storyline later this weekend, which is heavily subject to change.

Finally posting this up, the rough draft for the overall plot (info subject to change). I've organized arcs into what I've been referring into my notes as "clusters" because they aren't always arcs per se, but they are threads that will follow one another, and clusters due flow one after another but there are some quasi-clusters that could occur between where they are in the notes or could take place earlier. There's some "titles", but most are just placeholders and very likely to change.


  • Cluster 1
    • Battle of ______: Random battle serving as prologue (planet not part of Republic)
      • Led by Exodeus, introducing our Big Bad
    • Exploring Ruins 1: Andraste and Exodeus explore ruins, likely on invaded planet
    • Plague of Dis
      • Humanitarian aid by Jedi for evacuation efforts on a world whose moon is about to crash into it
      • Jhon's team escapes planet by captured by SD Aevumguard (Exodeus' flagship)
      • Jhon defeats Sith presence in hangar
      • Andraste arrives in hangar; Jhon wants to stay, to talk with Andraste, but persuaded by Jedi ally to escape
      • Andraste returns to bridge, where Exodeus taunts Andraste for letting her old master escape
      • Exodeus throws moon into the planet, causing a Wound in the Force
    • Response to Invasion: Ambassador Oseth meets with Senate, denoting legality of "annexation" of the new planet; Andraste had accompanied Oseth to Coruscant
    • Secret Rendezvous: Secret meeting between Jhon and Andraste, where Jhon fails to persuade Andraste to return to Jedi

  • Cluster 2
    • Lack of Faith: Predor's coterie discuss Jedi Council's hesitance to intervene in Sith Space, determining to oust Grandmaster Lecchamemnon
      • Coterie includes, named characters, Predor, Ebb, and Ruj
    • The Jedi Council: Predor's coterie confronts council; GM Lecchamemnon denies vote; Jhon mentally disapproves of Lecchamemnon's rejection whereas Dai silently supports Predor's group
    • Meeting Allies: Dai secretly connects Predor's coterie to a group of resistance fighters and Mandalorians
    • Fall of Aevumguard: Predor's coterie and allies in starfighters destroy SD Aevumguard, thinking Exodeus was on it
    • War Room: Judicar, Oseth, and Geiss discuss Aevumguard (and possible Republic involvement) and Exodeus' rise in power (citing Dis)
      • Judicar ponders replacing Exodeus
    • Confronting Dai: Lecchamemnon and/or Jhon confront Dai, noting they suspect he knows something regarding Aevumguard

  • Cluster 3
    • Mission to Zebitrope IV
      • Leafskipper or Skhai leading visit to orphanage to seek out any FS children
        • Coterie member (Predor or Ebb) involved
          • Possible reassignment as punishment for suspected involvement in Aevumguard destruction
      • During trip, it's discovered that orphanage is being used to kidnap orphans to be used in Sith experiments; Sith operation stopped
      • Coterie member discovers, in data, location of Geiss' lab, where the children are being sent - Zigoola
    • Battle of Zigoola
      • Predor's coterie, along with resistance fighters plus Sisk & Corden, assault Geiss' fortress
      • Illusions pull in some of their memories
      • Sisk killed by ally, thinking they're an enemy (due to Geiss manipulating illusions)
      • Della rescued by Ebb
    • Della In A Strange World: Della awakens, confused; Council detemines Della's fate
    • Della's Training: Leakskipper trains Della; Della makes new friend
    • Della's First Mission: Della sent with friends on easy mission

  • Before Cluster 4
    • Battle of ____: Random battle, expanding Kingdom Space
    • Regicide: Judicar and Exodeus (with Andraste) discuss recent battle; Exodeus urges fight with Jedi, which Judicar refuses; Exodeus kills Judicar with Andraste's help (her telepathy freeing him from Judicar's mind control)
    • The New King: Exodeus consolidates power, quickly gaining ally in Vereor, whom Exodeus names Darth (to Andraste's dismay); Oseth flees to Geiss, seeking sanctuary

  • Cluster 4
    • Battle of Tanaab: Predor's coterie aid resistance movement on Kingdom-invading planet; Predor killed and Ebb captured
    • Prisoner of the Sith: Ebb interrogated and Force suppressed
