This is a new book all about the Sith and the Dark Side being released tomorrow, 10th February 2012.

It will have statements on these subjects from the likes of Darth Revan, Lord Vitiate, Darth Sidious, Mace Windu, Darth Malgus, Yoda, Asajj Ventress, Luke Skywalker and even Darth Plagueis, this thread will be about the contents of the novel and things we previously did not know about the Sith and the Dark Side of the Force.

The thread will be updated continuously as we get more and more knowledge from it, anyone else who is reading this, please feel free to add your own thoughts on the book itself and new revelations.

Any comments are welcome on the subject, from quotes from the characters themselves in the book, to any relevant topic brought forth in the book.

―Darth Sidious

Thousands of years later, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Bane wrote about Darth Malgus in the book The Rule of Two. The Sith Lord Darth Sidious eventually obtained some surviving excerpts of Malgus' journals from an antiquities dealer, and he gave the diary to his apprentice Darth Vader, to inspire him.

Yes, I agree completely about the case, add the fact that the book is written by so many great authors is my main incentive, I already have mine Pre-ordered, just need to go into Waterstones tomorrow.

The quote from Darth Sidious is giving me the idea that the Sith Empire may actually win this war, confirming his statement that 'Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy...' is actually a factual statement and not a mere slip up in the script/writing.

Hmm. I suppose your right, and honeslty it makes sense. Since the SE is supposedly winning even though the treaty said otherwise.

Also who wrote it?
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

It's written by several different authors like for example Darth Malgus, Darth Bane and Sidious, but it also contains notes from people like Dooku, Ventress and Luke Skywalker

Also, the war between the Sith Empire will probably end with the empire shattering after a few decades, but will also probably end up with a shattered republic. What this conflict is leading too is the New Sith Wars and the dark age of the Star Wars universe. What we are seeing is the Roman Empire as the Republic breaking under the weight of corruption and foreign threats.

A fact that supports my point is that when the New Sith Wars start the Republic is a shadow of the one pictured in the Old Republic, while sith space is a dozen clans and small empires owning about 70% of explored space

The one thing this conflict will ensure is the pattern in which the Sith, the Jedi, the Empire and the Republic always rebuilds
