Another really terrific chapter.
Thrilling duels, unexpected twists, a tragic fate....a freakin' DRAGON (awesome!!!). Pardon me, Ruping. What a delightful addition! it's funny, we seldom see "creatures" being used in photonovels, but crazy monsters and creatures are such a part of the Star Wars DNA. I loved seeing that and the shot of the Ruping's open mouth just above the trooper's head was brilliant.
I am so pleased that you liked the Ruping. I was not sure whether it would work or not, and originally had them use a Basilisk War Droid. That shot with the Ruping flying over the troopers took a long time to get right, but it ended up being one of my favorites as well!
The ending here was really strong, the writing is always good, but you nailed that final scene with Bastilia. Really loved it. I do think the chapter needed one more panel. I think it should have ended with a silent, reflective panel of Bastila staring into space or something. It just felt abrupt ending it with her last bit of dialogue in the final panel.
Glad you liked the ending, it went through a couple of rewrites to get to a place I was happy with. I understand what you're saying about the final panel, I probably should have added another panel.
But that's a minor nitpick in an otherwise great chapter that, I'm assuming, brings the Onderon part of the story to a close. What a great ride, this was a terrific series with lots of wonderful drama, action, storytelling, etc. etc.
Very excited to see where the series goes from here, but take a bow for another job well done!!
Yes, the Onderon arc has come to a close and we're on to exciting new things! Thanks again, my friend! I always really appreciate your insights.
