Yeah I worked with Izzo for a little while after the books and Fire & Stone.

And McClaren was my idea.

So we can't blame you for not talking him out of Colonial Marines in River of Pain?

I think it'd depend on who ended up tackling that one, because while I think it made sense to visit him (why wouldn't it?) I still think that one had a pretty big potential to go down poorly if done poorly, especially with who he was buddied up with. That would have been 2 big points in one book.

Yeah I would've advocated for marshalls over marines, but RoP was a pet project for him I think.

Josh drove the OotS, RoP and SoS stuff - particularly RoP.  But he'd left by the time of Read/ Watch/ Play.  That was Steve Tzirlin who was previously at Lucasfilm and Read/ Watch/ Play was indeed inspired by SotE.  There was going to be more to it as well, but other events took over.

SotE? Shadows of the Empire?

From what I know of the roadmap that was planned under Tzir, it would have certainly been interesting! Some potential for things to have gone rather wrong (*cough* McClaren) but some genuinely interesting stuff in there.

What was the roadmap planned under Tzir? Potentially genuine, potentially evil romantic interest for Amanda?

That's all I'll admit to knowing for now.  :P

So, on the real, ignoring the current Greg Land shenanigans and any foreboding omens that might bring, do you think there's a likelihood of any of these individuals who've historically manned the various helms of these franchises and licenses ever being brought back into the fold under the new regime, or will all of this just be tossed away like yesterday's jam?

If only I had that kind of pull.  Or any kind of pull.  :)
