It feels weird not to be posting Star Wars stories for the first time in months (excluding the couple of Mondays I may have missed) and it’s going to take some getting used to. The future of the Ashukahwa Archives’ Star Wars writing is well underway, though. Let’s have a look at the situation since last week.
First up is Frontline, the sequel to the Between the Conclaves series. As expected it’s still in its preparatory stages, but there has been some progress. The storylines of the four acts have been largely finished, the characters divided among them and a few ideas that will fill in certain plot holes (as well as, I believe, really improve the story in general) have also been added. I believe I’ll be able to finish this stage this week. After that I can move on to setting up the story’s ‘script’, which will mainly entail getting the various scenes in the right order, so that the actual writing will be that much closer.
Then there’s the content that will be taking the Monday slot for at least a couple of weeks. Last week I spoke about posting background information for the stories, such as character profiles and event descriptions, and as of today that’s going to happen. The first character profile will come online not long after this post. It’s still a very basic profile, containing general information about the character and a biographical summary of what is known of them based on the currently posted stories. I’ll be using the Wookieepedia template for this, so a more detailed biography, as well as “Personality and Traits” and “Powers and Abilities” sections, an overview of the character’s appearances and hopefully illustrations will be added later on. Of course, as new stories get posted and new information is revealed, the profiles will also be updated. Furthermore, I’ve decided to set up a databank, a convenient place where the aforementioned profile and all other information will be stored and sorted by category, so that it can be accessed with ease. It’s still in the setup phase, but expect it to appear soon.
And that’s it for the Star Wars update this week. I’ll keep you posted on how everything went next week. For now, I hope you’ll enjoy the content and may the Force be with you!
