Star Wars Darth Zannah - The Art of Deception by JAM4077 Star Wars Darth Zannah - The Art of Deception by JAM4077
I've gotten into a Star Wars phases after listening to an audiobook of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis and 2 books of the Darth Bane trilogy, Path of Destruction and Rule of Two. I've been working on a Star Wars story set in a time after the events of Star Wars: Legacy comic book series which involves the Dark Lord (Lady) of the Sith, Darth Zannah. To make sure that my Legacy era story works out well, I've decided to write a fan story about Zannah and her involvement in my Legacy era story. I'm going to reference the Darth Bane trilogy as well as some fan speculation what a Darth Zannah/Darth Cognus novel could be.

Update: I decided to redo the cover for this story and make it more of a book cover. Please enjoy.

Synopsis:
It had been 4 years since Darth Bane's defeat at the hands of his apprentice, Darth Zannah. While under the disguise as a successful merchant and high ranking official of Ciutric IV and as her bodyguard, Zannah and her apprentice, Darth Cognus, continue to manipulate the galaxy for day the Sith would return to exact their revenge on the Jedi. However, when an unknown servent of the dark side of the Force targets the Ciutric IV's government to instigate civil war, Zannah is placed under the care of Jedi Knight Raven Lore, much to Zannah's dismay. Zannah decides to put this situation to her advantage. However, will Zannah's involvement with Raven lead to the end of the Sith?

Will there really be only 12 chapters? Also, have you ever considered putting this story on Fanfiction.net?

There will be more chapters. I don't know what Fanfiction.net is.

Okay. And really? Wow. I'm surprised. A story like this would definitely be popular with Star Wars fans on the site, especially since this is the only good Darth Zannah fic I've read. I think you should check it out, get an account (it's free), and post this story there too. But it's all up to you, and if you wanna just keep it here, that's fine.

Thanks. Tell me, what are some of things you would like to see in this story?

I would like to see a space battle between the Republic Fleet and the Separatist group. If the Separatist group doesn't have any ships I wouldn't mind seeing them and the Republic have a battle in the capital city or some other major city.

Some more back story to Darth Zannah would be nice too.

I would also like to see a lightsaber duel or two of course.

I hope this helps you out ^^

I doubt I would have any space battles in the story. However, battle in the capital city isn't out of the possibility. There will defiantly be a lightsaber duel.

I kind of figured there wouldn't be a space battle since those are kind of hard to describe in writing.

Agreed. I also think lightsaber duels are difficult to write, but I'm practicing.

Well, I do have a habit of making mistakes, although they are mostly grammar mistakes. Plus, I have a habit of rushing things or not giving enough detail.

That's why you use word, and have friends around for further editing and input.

I usually don't my friends input as I write. Mostly, I wrote, proof read, edit, more reading, edit until I'm am satisfied. Then, other find my mistakes.
