Well even Nom Anor mentions it was advantageous for the Vong that the Empire was defeated as he mentions they would have proved a far more difficult enemy-what with lacking moral compass and hesitation on nuking planets rather than losing...

shoot you, i have enough hard choices right now. i can't choose a favorite. it used to be Anakin(light side, like in clone wars), but now, i can't choose

I feel ya, I have an entire legion of runner ups-the Rogues, the Wraiths, Bel Iblis, Lando, Karrde, Booster, and of course the ever loveable Zsinj

Zsinj AA turrets track targets but do not shoot at them.

this is a tough call, there are a lot of worthy contenders but I'm going to go with Ysanne Isard. She is cruel for cruelty's sake, she is incompetent but blames others for her failings, she single handedly did more damage to the Empire than anyone else- causing Fel to defect, fragmenting the military, giving the NR legitimacy with Coruscant as well as handing them an SSD, 2 ISDIIs, 2 ISDs and 7 VSDs to boot.

Added to this is how very satisfied I was with how she died, shot in the gut after being systematically lectured how she had become predictable and being utterly foiled by someone whose life she tried to ruin merely for her amusement. Yes, Iceheart is probably my least favorite.

Pellaeon easily. Close second is Obi Wan Kenobi

I won't be- if we did that every time someone said "well just make a version of the mod with x one way and another with it the other way" we''d have dozens of versions of the mod to maintain. We decided to switch it because a bunch of people complained, and now a bunch of other people will complain. Ultimately, we'll stick with the one way that makes most sense to us.

Besides, with sub mods they can have it both ways without pulling the team in multiple directions.

While I am in the Delvardus/Night Hammer camp I can appreciate Cronus having it considering the earlier points Corey for that.

Slightly off subject but I was wondering if the 181st(fake one under Zsinj) might spawn out of Iron Fist like Hublins squadron does with his ISD. Just curious.

This is an interesting idea and has my attention.

Emperor voice, "So be it...spoilsport."

"If you will not have will be fun!"fun Lightning shoots out

I will say that I liked how Maul died - nice and quick, with Obi-wan tricking Maul into trying to use the move he used to kill Qui-gon and Obi-wan effortlessly countering it.  It showed without words that Kenobi had grown immeasurably since their last encounters and learned from the past, while Maul was stuck trying to undo or fix the past and hadn't progressed at all.

This I agree with wholeheartedly. It is the fundamental difference in their characters and ultimately the difference between a villain and hero in context of the heroes journey.

A similar context is Isard and Iella in Isard's Revenge.

Maul, in legends, was from before Palpatine knew Anakin EXISTED, and, in his final conversation with Darth Plaguise, said that he had Maul to do what he could not, and pretty much said Maul was intended to be a TRUE Sith apprentice, following Plaguise's demise. but, with Maul's presumed death, Palpatine shifted to after Anakin, with Dooku as the placeholder

Sidious never intended for maul to be anything but an errand boy, THAT is what he meant by that statement after murdering Plageus, he was the shadowy tool for Sidious murderous intent, Sidious never meant for Maul to supplant him as he saw himself as the pinnacle of the Sith, ALL his apprentices were just intended to be tools for HIS aggrandizement. In that regard NONE of Palpatine's Sith apprentices were 'true' as none were ever intended to surpass and replace him like previous Sith in the Rule of Two. Of all three though Maul was easily the easiest to replace and the least missed due to his very limited usefulness to the Dark Lord.

while this may be so, he is still an interesting character, and ORIGINALLY intended by Sidious to be his right hand man until his first demise at the hands of Obi-wan. he also had the potential, had his plans original plans for Mandalore and Death Watch gone according to plan, to have been the major third faction in the clone wars. unfortunately, the plot bunnies that plagued the empire wreaked havoc on Maul&Co as well, and he was eventually tossed into the wastebasket of the Force known  as Chaos

I disagree, I never found him interesting or capable of more than being an errand boy.Dooku had more depth, potential, character and import than Maul ever did and he was just a placeholder for Anakin.

Maul was insignificant in every way. A mere hit man for Sidious. He died as he lived in both mediums- an over hyped insect with no greater effect on the galaxy around him.

I'm on board for this idea

Do you think Pallaeon and Kaine would have been good pals?
I think they would have agreed on a few things.

I think they would have worked well together, according to EGtW Pellaeon respected Kaine and was appalled by the effect his death had on the Empire as a whole.

what does this have to do with anything?

It's a modified Delvardus quote

This is nothing but a thinly veiled power grab. I've spent more on posting and buildup than anyone else. I'm not sharing my glory.

Trouble is this scenario puts the combined IR and PA square in the middle of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion corridor rather than right beside it

another leader for Pellaeon's remnant? i can see him being like a second leader in the remnant, but the timeluine probably wouldn't change much

There would have been no final Imperial push. Kaine would never have backed that. Also with him as the last Grand Moff and holder of most forces after Pellaeon I expect the True Empire as Pellaeon called it would have retained it's roughly 25 Sectors with Kaine as head of state and Pellaeon as Supreme Commander.

Personally I'd go with Makassi for primary form due to it's reliance on quick strikes of opportunity with with Niman as secondary form for it's balanced approach. Both are energy conservative and favor precision over brute strength. Classic handle with vertical separate rubber grips for both comfort and grip retention. No decor but would have emitter guard of phrik. Red blade as the synthetic crystals are stronger.
