Thanks for the feedback, guys. I was thinking about holding this chapter for later, but I really thought it would serve as a good, short distraction as I'm in my posting slump, plus it does serve to set up Odos Five a bit.Quazar
: Gunray is indeed a major player here. Dont' expect him to be far from the fray as things come to a head. Expect to see much less of Du'aad and other Seps, as Gunray has drawn a pretty clear line in the sand here.
The IG Droid will also be central, although I have yet to really flesh him out. He's an old custom I want to give some life to.PenDragon
: Sorry, dude, I can't quit my job.
I am very pleased with your kind comments. CHEWIE
: I added a small bit of setting language before Du'aad starts in. See if that helps a little. It was pretty confusing, I think. As to the length of the chapter, I always try to think of chapters in terms of moving the story along. This does it with very little substance. If I'd have poured too much into telling you about these guys, it probably would have taken their edge off. There's nothing more compelling - to me - than the mysterious villain. We know Gunray's different, but what else do we know? Not much, and that's how I want it.
The next chapter I have planned will be looooooong. Originally it was Chapter 3, but after setting the table in Chapters 1 and 2, what is now Chapter 4 might have been tedious without knowing what they were up against.BrentS
: Thanks, man. I have to say your PN has come along so beautifully, I had to get my hands dirty again before you made everyone forget about Sedo.
Rest assured Sekto is very aware of his others perception of him. His voice sounds as sinister as he can make it, and while I expect he would have the same breathless quality, it's more rough-edged and uptempo than your typical Neimoidian politico.
And thanks too to The_Tin_Man
and master brisk arpor
Please keep it coming; I really do take these into account when I move my story along. I can use all the help I can get!
