Essential Guide To Warfare Author's Cut #3: Xim the Despot

Posted by Eric on December 3, 2013 at 07:39 PM CST

Jason Fry and Paul Urquhart have posted the third blog post in their ongoing series detailing the material from their book, Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare, that ended up getting cut before the book was published.

In part three, Fry presents some of his unpublished material about the ancient conqueror Xim the Despot. "I like this goofball mashup of Hamlet, 'Ozymandias,' and snobby English 19th century travel narratives," Fry writes in the introduction to one of the excerpts included in this post. "But as was often true with Warfare's 'in-universe' essays, it was less important than the more straightforward writing about Xim we already had quite a lot of."
