I saw what you wrote at the other site, and thanks! To answer all of your questions as best I can -
ITHOR - Ithor is a pacifist species, but if swayed one way or the other, they could help turn the tide in the war... with the loss of Ambassador Tame Heem, it was a major blow to the Republic. The committee was sent there to meet with him... the Separatists are there because they are hoping to be able to gain control of the planet's vast resources... I had Tame Heem mention that he thought they should join their cause or the Separatists would eventually take everything they have... in the intro, it does say:
Although news of the betrayal has spread throughout the
Republic, the Jedi Council has sent a secret message
to the former Ambassador, requesting to send a committee
to negotiate a new alliance with the Ithorians.
... so it does say that they are coming to meet with him. I guess I could have done better explaining that though...
SORA BULQ - He was kind of mentioned when Obi Wan said he felt a presence he has not felt in a long time... but again, I guess I could had laid out more of a backstory about him being there.
In the EU, Sora Bulq turns over to the Dark Side after the Battle of Geonosis... this story is just a couple of months after that battle. I also felt it was a good time to introduce General Grievous, as in the novel LABRYNTH OF EVIL, it is said that Grievous was present on Geonosis, and killed several Jedi in the catacombs there.
Thanks for the comments as they do help me. I am still continuing to try and figure out just what in the hell I am doing in making these.
I do have a couple of questions though... I am going to continue to base these mainly around Rykrof Enloe. I am going to have brief appearances from a few other characters, such as I did in this one with some of the more recognizable Jedi...
What about the bad guys? I do want to have Grievous be in them some... but and tinkering with the thought of Assaj Ventress and Durge... if those two make an appearance, it will not be as main characters at all. Instead, I am creating a new character that will be a member of the Separatists... how does that sound?
Also, Trigg Fuuda is still lurking in the shadows...
