Kemp’s Riptide, James Luceno’s Darth Plagueis, and Troy Denning’s Apocalypse, as well as what Leland’s day-to-day duties consist of. Click here to check out the full interview.

Over on The Galactic Drift, Racheal A. recounted Troy Denning’s visit to the Barnes & Noble in Carmel, ID. This was the second stop on Troy Denning’s Apocalypse Book Tour, and the article recounts some of the comments Troy made to different questions, as well as an impression of the general experience. As a bonus, there’s also a video at the end so you can watch the event.

A question arose about the Legacy comics and if Denning and the others felt pressure from the events. While there’s a good chance that the books will eventual lead to that point, Denning stated that the authors and editorial staff are “trying to make the journey of how we get there interesting.”

He used the example of Jagged Fel, whom the Legacy comics revealed to be an emperor. There are things they want Jag to do before that happens.

For the record, Denning said that he didn’t know if he’d be involved or what was happening next in the EU.
