Easy there Thrawn.While we certainly appreciate all the help Xizer and those he's recruited for voice acting have given us, it's worth keeping in mind those scripts were written by him; I haven't seen them and to be honest wasn't aware they were even being written, and as such they are based on his understanding of the makeup of 2.2, which while more complete than most people (since I've included him in some of the GC planning), does not include all the details.
hahhahahahaha that's funny Lord Xizer So My lord what Gc do you plan to play first?My top three first plays are these.1: Endor Aftermath as the Greater Maldrood.2: Crimson Empire as the Greater Maldrood.3: Imperial Civil War as the Pentastar Alignment.What about you Corey don't you play ICW for Fun?
Endor Aftermath is certainly highest on my to do list, though the options for the Imperial mutiny/Crimson Empire time frame are also delightfully tempting as runner up with a solid third place going to Warlord Zsinj's GCs.
Yeah Zsinj is a cool guy. In fact I just got Wraith squadron, Iron Fist, and Solo Command.
Thrawn never worked with Palpatine He was killed by his own bodyguard by that point.That's why he will never make it into era 3.
Also there is some doubt as to whether Thrawn would have given up the reigns to palpatine again, he clearly states to Mara that, "I rule the Empire now. Not some long dead Emperor."thrawn's recruitment of C'baoth(a VERY powerful Force user) mass use of ysalamiri and the fact palpatine didn't aid Thrawn at all but worked with Isard and the Warlords denying him powerful forces also support this theory.
In Theory here if, Thrawn survived till shadow hand we would see a few things1:Thrawn Wouldn't trust papaltine and consider him a threat to his people and his power. He would rally most of his forces including the corellian sector and Delak Kenrel. Maldrood might go Thrawn with EA going dark empire with zero command. This would mean a all-out ICW2: Thrawn would be contacted by Carnor Jax and they would plan a coop within the COMPNOR, the ISB and have a Imperial munity.3: The Eoth would come into play and so would the Eclipse and Galaxy Guns.4: Thrawn Might Negotiate with the NR through Pelleaon a seize fire until the Dark Empire was wiped out. This means force-users would come into play and fight with Thrawn.5: Now with most of the galaxy against him Paps would lose 2 to 10. 6: Once Paps is dead for good Thrawn will probably do 1 of 2 things. Option A: He continues his campaign against the NR or Option B: He realizes how the galaxy needs unity and negotiates peace with the NR.7: Most Warlords at the end of this would have heir territory would be Annexed by Thrawn, Continue on fighting, fade away, or be overtaken by the NR.
You forget, the PA would have sided WITH Palpatine, same with Krennal. Kaine and Krennal both resented Thrawn for essentially commandeering their forces for his campaign.Pellaeon too would be duty bound to obey the Emperor, so who he would side with at that point would be difficult to read. Jax would have subverted Palptine but wouldn't have worked with Thrawn as he would have been just as much of a threat to jax's rule as Palpatine. Thrawn also wouldn't have negotiated peace with the NR, he saw them as the antithesis of Order and even with peace there would be a bitter division between them for the coming YVW.Also Palpatine had more forces above Byss alone than Thrawn had in his ENTIRE campaign. This included 3 Vengeance SSDs, multiple Executors, Sovereigns, the World Devastators and shortly later the Galaxy gun. Added to that is the HAX broken level of Darkside power Palpatine used in Shadow hand(Literally tearing holes in space and time with Force Storms)Thrawn was good but seeing how divided his own power base would be, his limited resources and the massive odds in the Emperor's favor there's only one way that would go down.
okay fare point on Pa and Kereneal but I think Pellaeon knows how evil Paps is and would side with Thrawn for Loyalty. The salmir would come into play.But lets look at Thrawn's position in this circumstance.1: The EOTH and some Imperials would side with Thrawn, and lets assume at this point he has some kattana fleets dreadnaughts. Paps would be fighting a war on two fronts. 2: The NR would be having the jedi fight back with or against Thrawn it doesn't matter. And also I know this sounds dumb but Beltaine would side with Thrawn and give him war droids.3 Also when Palps dies a few things will happen. Sedriss will take over and the warlords will go back to the way they use too. Leaving some to unite under Thrawn therefore we see a all-out war in the galaxy with chaos.4: when Paps dies and crimson empire forms they will most likely be annexed by Thrawn with some warlords refusing to join Thrawn causing still the threat of warlords.5: By the time Dala emerges Thrawn will be trying to reunite the Empire and Dala will then help Thrawn with it. Thrawn probably not use the maws superweapons but use those Crystal things to power the weapons of many of ships.6: Thrawn Unites the galaxy and prepares for the vong invasion which he would win without the use of the force.
