One of the trickier (and nerve wracking) parts about The Old Republic is building your character’s skill tree.

Star Wars Books has posted Darth Plagueis mini-excerpt #6:

“Where the Neimoidians should be grateful to Senator Palpatine for proposing the summit, they are instead furious. Everything is in place for launching the blockade.”

“Almost everything,” Plagueis said. “First, there is the matter of our revenge.”

“Shall I task Maul to pay Veruna a visit?”

Plagueis shook his head. “I intend to see to him personally. Is the Zabrak— Maul, as you call him— capable of dealing with Alexi Garyn and his Vigos?”

“He will not fail us.”

You can check out all the previous excerpts here: mini-excerpt #1, #2, #3, #4, and chapter 1, #5, and the audio excerpt.
