    Han and Leia for the most part are background characters. The story centers on their two kids, Jacen and Jaina, and Luke and Mara's son, Ben.






    The Galactic Alliance is struggling to hold the galaxy together while Corellia is wanting to form its own naval fleet and does so in secret AND they are trying to bring Centerpoint station back online!

    The Jedi Council, is struggling with its place in the Galaxy, since it doesn't want to be a participant in a war that they can't seem to avoid.

    Jacen Solo feels it's his duty to bring peace to the galaxy, ala his grandfather Anakin.

    Ben Skywalker is Jacen's apprentice and struggles with wanting to be a grown up and not recognized as a Skywalker and how dark his master, Jacen , is becoming.

    Jaina feels her brother slipping to the dark side but is fearful to confront him about it.

    A mysterious Sith lady has reappeared and is manipulating the events of the Galaxy.

    So all in all it has a grey mood. Not everything is as it seems and the lines between right and wrong and justice and chaos are blurred.

    I recommend them!
    "Wicked" was a poor choice of words. My point of Han and Leia was based off of the '70's flick.

    As i said, i havent read any of the books* and found myself having trouble buying books with those two characters on the cover. I know, i know, i have some kind of weird hang-up with those 2.

    I did read the Sith book that took place right before Episode 1. I enjoyed it.

    don't worry, i, for one, got the "wicked-awesome" meaning over the "wicked-evil" meaning, i guess being an 80's teenager, and having a few friends from boston will do that, though

    i am currently read the 4th book in the "percy jackson and the olympians" series.

    I just finished the first book to the heir of ash series which was pretty good and wait to read the next one.
    I do not play them here or there, I do not play them anywhere, I do not play them with a fox. I do not mash that button box. I do not like MMO games. In the end ther're all the same.

    I recently finished Bram Stoker's Dracula. I recommend it to anyone who likes horror games.

    I need to re-read Dracula, if only because the Black Court vampires of the Dresden Files are so heavily inspired by Stoker's fiction.

    I'm currently reading The Lords of the North By Bernard Cornwell. This is book 3 of his Saxon series. Tells the story of England during the 9th century and how Alfred the Great united the country. I always go to Bernard for my historical fiction.

    Just finished a novel about Henry the 8th and his court. In between reading chapters of "handling and restraint" of animals, I'm rereading "I,Strahd".

    Good choice! One of my all-time faves and should be required reading for all players of Ravenloft. I'd let my f2f players read my hardback copy but I'm afraid I'd never get it back.

    I just finished reading "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss, a book I HIGHLY recommend to anyone interested at all in good story-telling. I'm currently reading "World Mythology", a textbook on its namesake that I'm finding vastly fascinating, though I'm supposed to be reading "Scar Night" by Alan Campbell that my coworker lent me.
    Parentheses are (not) important.

    Good to know. I will have to check out Bernard's work.
