Hi everyone, great customs and great photonovels CHEWIE, I read'em all and they're wonderful.  Can't wait for you to reach the end of the clone wars and the reorganization of the Republic's officer corps.  I wonder how Rykrof would do when they did that.  Remember the comic where Vader strangled the two officers that protested to Palpatine?  Thats the situation I'm thinking about.

Anyways, I am thinking of starting one when I get a digital camera,  which should be two months from now (saving up slowly so I can still customize at the same time, plus I am graduating from HS this year, stress!!! :o).

The story entirely fanfic, and takes place during the clone wars.  Its about a small 4 man squad of alpha batch ARC troopers.  It takes place a little before the swith to phase 2 armor and the troopers are the field testers of the armor.  It will follow them to the end of the war and their reaction to Order 66.  It will show how they grow beyond their programing (think Jangotat) and gain their humanity.

There will be cameos by Alpha, Anakin, Obi wan, and other main characters, possibly even Rykrof, with CHEWIE's permission of course.

I am still working on the customs, see my needs list for what I need to make characters for this PN,  I will update the list with parts for the characters I need to make.

LMK what you guys think, support and advice are greatly apprecciated,
thanks everyone.

Vader:Master, my suit chafes
Palps:Do you use Darkside
Vader:Yes master
Palps:In time you will learn the true power of the darkside

VF/501, I think your ideas sound great!  I can't wait to see what you do.  And you can use Rykrof if you would like to for sure.

As for where the storyline I'm working on goes, yes it will go well past Order 66.  Just been behind with it lately and also doing some "redos" of the older ones... I should have an update next week though!

Thanks CHEWIE.  Just thought I'd ask about Rykrof because you created him and to me that means you own the rights to the character.

Anyways, I can't wait to start either, the only thing stopping me is the lack of a camera, photoshop, and customizing resources for clones and droids.

However I am fairly creative so I can get around the lack of fodder, but trying to design working, custom made equipment packs for the troops is hard.  Side packs that hang down from the waist are fairly simple but I am getting screwed up by the back packs.

Made holsters, and a binoculars pouch for my Alpha custom, and they're pretty cool.

I need fodder though, so any trades or donations will be appreciated, esp, casted jangoclone heads with ball jointed neck posts.

Ok, head on over to the photonovel section, I just posted the "ultimate edition" of CRISIS ON ABRIDON.  Ok, it's not really "ultimate" but I think it's better than the original.

Just looked at your update CHEWIE and its pretty cool.  Overall  the look of the PN is way better.

Do you plan to redo all of the old ones like that?

Thanks VF/501.  Yes I plan on redoing probably the first 10-12 of them that way, I just want them all to be in a consistent format.  It will take some time, but I am going to give it all I've got, and still try and work on new ones too.

Awesome chapter, In Rem!  My notes are a bit short (as it's a short chapter), but I loved it!!
