This was outstanding! What a start to a new series, I have to echo Lance's excitement!
First off, the era you chose your story to be in is refreshing. It's great seeing someone tackle the era around The Force Awakens... awesome!
Secondly, nice mix of customs and "stock" figures. It's nice to see you not using just stock figures for your photonovel.
Third, the sets! Great dioramas! I just love that you invested your time to make sets. It all comes together so well, and makes your story so much better. Very well done!
Next, the cast - just enough to make it very interesting with Mile, Hallis, and R5-D4 (ha, fun nod to ANH). I'm so glad you didn't try and add too many characters to this.
The writing was also very effective! It was very easy to follow, but also wasn't over-simplified.
And finally... the story! I love that he found the lightsaber, but has no clue what it is. And the First Order troops... loved the way they want after him and Hallis... I did not expect for Hallis to be have Jedi roots... love it!
Thank you for sharing this with us, and best of luck with future chapters! I think we're in for a treat! Oh - and very nice photography too.
Awesome! I hope the house wasn't too crazy with five kids around! I know how that can be!
Thank you! A good portion ("60 portions," couldn't resist) of it will be set in the past, mainly because of the lack of info I have on this era, but throughout I plan on having tales take place in this era.
I wish I was better with customs, it's always so amazing to see some of the awesome characters you create for the Enloe Chronicles. It's pretty cool to see the talent, and creativity that goes into it. I want to make sure all my main characters are original in some way, at least. I'm guessing people probably won't want Yoda running around under a false name, haha.
The set was fun to make! Thanks so much for the encouragement!
I'm glad! I'm always so guilty of adding too many characters to my stories, so I'm really trying to keep myself accountable. There may or may not be a few more coming in the other eras, but hopefully that should work out alright! I'm glad you're enjoying reading the story, I'm happy to write it! I know I've said this quite a few times, but THANK YOU so much!
