Storytime with Charles Boyd

  • Inside the story video blog coming soon.
  • Chapter 12: New information leads to potentially deadly mission for the alliance. Valkorion has brutal plans for the outlander. Special return appearance from some fan-favorite characters (Satele Shan and the spirit of Darth Marr)
  • Alliance recruit: Akghal Usar (a dashade like Khem Val).. Hidden in a mysterious tomb on Yavin 4. Need to solve an elaborate puzzle to unlock him. A deadly ally with ties to both past and present.
  • When are we getting our favorite companion back?
    • They need to be tied to the story, their return need to matter.
  • How much time has passed from the time you were unfrozen to Chapter 11?
    • Couldn’t be more than a month or two
  • What happened to Elara Dorne?
    • It is likely Elora was not allowed to continue with the Havoc Squad due to her previous Imperial afflictions (Saresh wouldn’t allow someone with Empire afflictions near the top Republic elite force).
