It's been a long while since the story section last had any attention. A while back, I gave up on the idea of ever finishing my Star Wars stories, so instead have typed out a rough outline as to what may have happened during the rest of the saga. I've also expanded the names & characters section with images where possible.
Did some work behind the scenes of the game blog page so that the game filters now work much better.
A couple of months back I found loads of old notes about all the old Epic Space Marine games we played, starting from back when I was in high school. I thought it would be a good idea to type them all up as best I could, and upload them all. While I was at it, I also converted the Epic-S and 40K battle reports from their PDF state to HTML, and they can be found on the Warhammer 40K page.
In the early 2000s, my friends and I looked at making a Star Wars fan film. When we decided the project was beyond us, I instead began writing some stories, expanding the ideas we had come up with for the film.
I only finished one of the stories, which was the one directly translated from the original film idea. While some work was done on several of the other stories, to differing degrees, I could never find the time or motivation to complete the project.
Though it was always my intention to go back and write them, in late 2018 I finally admitted defeat and decided to abandon the stories for good. I think this decision was spurred on by Disney wiping out the old continuity, which these stories were set in, and how disappointed I was in the new Star Wars films at the time.
Instead, to put the saga to bed, I've scoured through the old notes I made in the mid 2000s and created a basic outline of events that led up to and followed the one completed story. As the outline is based on old ideas, the final stories may have been quite different if I had ever written them.
But now I guess we will never know.
The saga is set in the Star Wars Legends continuity, beginning roughly 15 years after "Return Of The Jedi". It follows the adventures of three young Jedi, from the moment they start their training through to Knighthood and beyond...
Wilcra Li New and his apprentice San Rylo are led to the system of Do'Naar. There they discover a secret Dark Jedi training facility led by the powerful Kreygor, who has captured Macan in an attempt to turn him to the dark side...
Wild Land is home to some of the most insane characters, locations and events ever imagined.
The almighty genius that is Wild Land is an entirely new batch of insanity cooked up by three crazy mentalists, and is the home to the shockingly awesome Barry Munkfish.
There is a war going on in Wild Land. It is a war like no other. This war rages between the two factions in Wild Land. The two factions are divided by their different styles of behaviour, which are totally different and exactly identical at the same time.
The "wild" faction are those that pride themselves on being completely pant-wettingly awesome and cool, while the "gammy" faction contains those who behave in a much more vile, sinister or anti-social kind of way.
Do not mistake these factions as good and evil, for in Wild Land, good and evil do not exist. Indeed, a wild character may have no trouble harassing a cute kitten or hitting a small child if it seemed like a particularly wild thing to do at the time. He may even repeat the procedure several times, depending on whether he thought his victim had been acting in a gammy sort of way.
There are also characters that exist that are neither one or the other and have no say in the outcome of the war. These characters are generally referred to as "ish", and do not care about being wild or gammy at all. Nevertheless, many of those who follow the ish way of life have found themselves forced into the middle of the war when wild or gammy characters have decided it would be rather wild or gammy to drag them into it.
Will Mr. Jim Fish be able to help his friend Barry find what he is looking for?
I love characters and names. So much so that I become quite attached to the characters and names I create. I often reuse my faves, and they can be found sprinkled throughout pretty much all of my hobbies.
In this little area, you can read about my characters, where I got their names from, and if multiple versions of the characters exist. I've also supplied images provided I have them.
These three are the main characters from my Star Wars stories. My mate Krig, my bro JIK, and myself used a Star Wars name generator to create the original names, which I then slightly modified for the stories.
The three names were later used as Space Marine characters in 40K: Master Wilcran Linus, Chaplain Codan and Captain Macan Vesso. Macan Vesso is also my character on Star Trek Online. He looks a little like a blue-skinned Dracula. The U.S.S. Codan is the name of my long range science vessel on Star Trek Online.

Ja'nalora Andera is one of the supporting characters from my Star Wars stories. She is a Twi'lek Jedi Knight. Her sister Karynna is a villain in those stories.

I love the name Ja'nalora, but really can't remember where the hell it came from.

Wild--Splapdink is my alter-ego when playing Rome: Total War with the other Wild Monkey Generals. The name was a mistype that we thought was hilarious. Can't actually remember what I was trying to type at the time. The name appeared again when I started to play Star Wars: Galaxies, with the creation of the Mon Calamari Medic Splapdink McWildpants. Then I created an Undead World Of Warcraft character called Splapdink. Splapdink is my summoner name on League of Legends. Splapperz is my character name on Planetside 2.
