    Yep. I can pretty much confidently confirm that:

    THIS IS THE FINAL UPDATE FOR ACT ONE.

    When is it coming? I don't know - in two days, I'd say. It's a rather big update. I considered splitting it into smaller bits, but adding artificial and somewhat pointless "What do you do?" bits wasn't as appealing to me ultimately. When you really get down to it, all that's left to decide is what is to be done with the Vault's contents (what Doop is doing right now) - the rest of the finale is dedicated to closing out the Act proper. Unless they're outright spoilers for future Act II stuff, expect to see all the loose ends and plotlines to be fully closed and otherwise revisited. Even the Mandalorians. You know, for HONOURE™ and all that jazz.

    Thus, you will probably find this final update as less of a sudden cliffhanger like a Chapter ending felt like most of the time - and more of a proper, actual, dedicated ending meant to give our characters their respectful bow. I felt that the thread, and all of you fine folks, deserved something more.

    Well, you know. The accident destroyed my manhood, I thought I'd take it one step further ;). *This is a private joke that's leaking. Dammit @Dark Cutie :D*

    Well it has taken me a lot longer to get caught up with this comic than I thought it would...about 3 weeks longer in fact. But this whole thing is Genius. Big shoutout to @Alamact for asking me to join in on this adventure, I can't wait to put my two cents during Act II.

    Oh man. I can only imagine what kind of a journey that must have been for you! :D
    All those chapters and the full storyline without having to wait for the next piece.
    I am so glad you finally caught up!

    Got a favorite character yet? :)

    DOOP SKYCHAFER So funny. It is a LONG read but ya going from start to finish is epic.

    I am going to hold my thoughts until Act II I think, I feel that is the best place for new minds to jump into the action.

    Um...I am not sure how to answer this...Guess an Intro is due. Just a Greedo loving Star Wars fan that been around for a few months. I follow a lot of people that contribute to this comic, and about 3-4 weeks ago @Alamact invited me to get caught up and enjoy the fun.

    Turns out there is an image cap of 30 per post - so I had to split the update into two. @Spacebeast48 agreed to help out by adding some useful padding.
    The timing couldn't have honestly been any better.
    You finally caught up with us, you absolute madman! Welcome (formally) to the thread at last.
    And then you have Darth 'freaking Saber in the other corner to even things out.
    [​IMG]

    Well, it's good to know that your PRIORITIES are WELL-PLACED.

    [​IMG]

    Even if YOUR LAZINESS won't COME to BITE YOU in the NEAR FUTURE.

    [​IMG]

    BECAUSE to NO ONE'S SURPRISE, SNOTE'S APPRENTICE still LIVES according to the RULES of TELEVISION. APPARENTLY, in order to be TRULY DEAD, you have to SUFFER an ON-SCREEN DEATH.

    [​IMG]

    SECRET FORMULA TO IMMORTALITY? YOU BE THE JUDGE.

    [​IMG]

    SINCE it's the ENDING, this MEANS that MARK HAMILL must make his BADASS APPEARANCE.

    [​IMG]

    And to also subsequently HAVE NO LINES WHAT-SO-EVER.

    [​IMG]

    Congratulations! You have been given the following: an ON-SCREEN DEATH. This ABORTION of a PLOTLINE can FINALLY be CLOSED.

    THANK YOU FOR PLAYING!

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, SABER is once again SCARED of STUPID THINGS for NO REASON. NO REASON at ALL.

    [​IMG]

    Whilst your BUSINESS PARTNERS explore the VAULT, you take this OPPORTUNITY to PICK UP a RATHER STRANGE HOLOCRON. A STRANGE VOICE TELLS you that this will PROBABLY have some SIGNIFICANCE in the OVERALL PLOT.

    STRANGE VOICE: "This will probably have some significance in the overall plot."

    Thank you, STRANGE VOICE!

    [​IMG]

    FUN FACT: THE FIRST HOLOCRONS in the GALAXY came from the RAKATA and their INFINITE EMPIRE.

    Isn't KNOWLEDGE FUN!?

    [​IMG]

    SOMETHING'S NOT RIGHT.

    You start to PICK up the PIECES.

    [​IMG]

    Your EXISTENTIAL CRISIS has RETURNED.

    [​IMG]

    LITERALLY A CONCEPT OLDER THAN THE EMPEROR.

    [​IMG]

    It's REASONABLY SAFE to ASSUME that the word "SITH" isn't the ONLY PROPER WAY to ARRANGE those letters and STILL have the SENTENCE MAKE PERFECT SENSE.

    [​IMG]

    COLUMBO is SPORTING THE HAT!

    If only MYNOCK could SEE HIM NOW...

    [​IMG]

    DOOP: "I think it’s obvious what happened here. Kestrel took my money! Actual, legal money that I earned fair and square for once!"
    RATCHET: "Let’s not jump to conclusions. What’s up with that body over there?"
    SABER: "It reminds me of a typical Dromund Kaas attire the higher-ups have for their Sith goons."
    MISSY: "It’s almost skeletal. If you ask me, this guy, whoever he was, was probably trapped here on purpose before starving and-or suffocating to death. Years ago. Emphasis on years."

    DOOP: "How come the Empire never bothered to check the Vault?"
    MISSY: "Never mix arrogance with stupidity."

    DOOP: "Well, I got cheated out of my rightful wealth!"
    RATCHET: "Is money all you care for?"

    [​IMG]

    ALSO, the GRASS is GREEN. SOMETIMES YELLOW. EVEN PURPLE.

    It looks like this phrase doesn't work in A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY.

    [​IMG]

    RATCHET: "You need an intervention."
    DOOP: "Nope. I just need one thing, just one teensy little thing to go right for once! Yet for some reason the Force keeps denying me!"

    DOOP: "Columbo?"
    COLUMBO: "Yes, knave?"
    DOOP: "Your *mistress* owes me what is rightfully mine. I intend to hunt her down. You seek to rejoin her company, do you not?"
    COLUMBO: "Your point being?"
    DOOP: "I see a partnership in our future."
    COLUMBO: "I shall trust you, if for the sole certainty that your greed far outweighs your dishonesty."

    DOOP: "Have an idea what happened here?"
    COLUMBO: "Kestrel would never willingly part with this hat. I would assume Mynock accompanied her."

    [​IMG]

    DOOP: "You seem awfully sure of it."
    COLUMBO: "Because he always does. And that’s what makes it even more curious."

    DOOP: "Yes?"
    COLUMBO: "Mynock would be willing to die for this hat alone. To lose it is to invite the thought of major beef on their hands."
    SABER: "And now I’m hungry. Thank you."
    MISSY: "Stop interrupting, Saber! It’s so uncivilized."

    DOOP: "This doesn’t make sense. You saw the guard outside? I don’t think they would have had any trouble entering the vault if they knew what it was."
    SABER: "Maybe it’s a splinter group of Sith? Maybe the Vault had something of value beyond the material?"
    RATCHET: "We need to face the facts here. No treasure. No reason for us to be here in this damp grave."

    Ain't that the FREAKING TRUTH?

    [​IMG]

    You DECIDE to TAKE what you can SALVAGE and what you CAN SALVAGE most definitely is: THE PLOT HOLOCRON, THE HAT OF BRUCE, THE RAKATAN STATUES and THE ANCIENT VIBROSWORDS.

    You will need to CALL a SHIPPING SERVICE to HAUL this JUNK away back to your LITERAL JUNK of a SHIP.

    You are an ending saver, Beast!
    [​IMG]

    GENERAL FUX HAS ARRIVED AT LAST!

    Also, POACHIE is being a GOOD GUARD DOG and is locked into a HEATED ARGUMENT with MILLICENT about the DELICACIES of KATH KIBBLE.

    [​IMG]

    SABER: "General Fux."
    GENERAL FUX: "Lord Saber."
    SABER: "Congratulations on your victory!"
    MISSY: "Yeah. Here’s to another decade of oppression. Just what Dantooine needs!"

    GENERAL FUX: "What was that?"
    MISSY: "Oppression is just splendid, right? No better way to keep the filthy commoners in check, I say!"
    GENERAL FUX: "Erm... yes. Do you teach your underlings to always be so flippant?"
    MISSY: "Me? Underling?"
    SABER: "They’re not my underlings."
    GENERAL FUX: "Curious."

    GENERAL FUX: "Yet sadly, we have no time for revels. The Dark Council calls us to besiege the Core Worlds. I trust your arrangement still stands?"

    DOOP: "What arrangement?"

    [​IMG]

    SABER: "I have decided to return to the Empire and do well by my duty as a Sith Lord."
    MISSY: "When did this happen?"
    SABER: "When I shut down the Secret Wire."
    MISSY: "You’re actually serious, aren’t you?"
    SABER: "Just this one time, Red."

    DOOP: "I’m perfectly okay with this. Less people to split the profit with. Ratchet, what about you?"
    RATCHET: "I go wherever Saber goes. He’d crash the Friend Ship in less than a day without my piloting."
    DOOP: "Please don’t tell me you named your frigate the Friend Ship..."
    SABER: "Neat name, huh?"

    DOOP: "I’m so glad I’ll be rid of you."
    SABER: "The galaxy’s a small place for a masochist, Doop. Regardless, I wish you luck."

    [​IMG]

    ENTER: THE UNARY SUNSET SCENE.

    [​IMG]

    YEAH, SABER. Why, indeed? It's as if you MADE this CHOICE under the INFLUENCE of some STRANGE VOICE SHOUTING COMMANDS at the BACK of your HEAD.

    [​IMG]

    <TEXT NOT NEEDED>

    [​IMG]

    <TEXT NOT NEEDED>

    [​IMG]

    And with that, this SUBPLOT comes to a REASONABLY SATISFACTORY CONCLUSION. Also, the BUDGET RAN OUT so a DUPLICATE FRAME with an ENTIRELY POINTLESS ATTEMPT to ADD PACING DRAMA was ADDED.

    Alas, the time has come to bring this ACT to a CLOSE.

    [​IMG]

    From the depraved bowels of the Nar Shaddaa underworld, to the garbage-sauna of a world called Taris; through armies of dimwitted clones, rebel scum and mechanical agitants the journey has led you. You now rest upon this windswept hill with no long-awaited satisfaction, nor promised wealth - merely a promise of your own: to search for the fugitive outlaws, Kestrel and Mynock, and reclaim what is rightfully yours.

    [​IMG]

    You will honor the legacy of the fallen and they shall, in turn, steel your resolve in the struggles ahead.

    [​IMG]

    For there will be struggles, danger and strife. This may not have been the path you've longed to thread, or even the one you initially expected - in a more innocent time and of your past self - but it is the path before you and thread it you will, lest the progress you've made thus far be in vain.

    [​IMG]

    And the prices you've paid be for naught.

    [​IMG]

    It all starts with a promise.

    [​IMG]

    Epilogue: Big Iron On His Hip

    [​IMG]

    Oh, you thought you were done?

    Nope.

    [​IMG]

    One last stop to make.

    [​IMG]

    One closing storyline to conclude.

    [​IMG]

    One final character left to visit.

    [​IMG]

    Somewhere in the frozen wastelands of Ilum.

    [​IMG]

    Yes. This is a perfect loop.

    [​IMG]

    The Outlaw trudges through the endless wastes in a copy-pasted panel to reinforce this ridiculous notion.

    [​IMG]

    Until he eventually comes to his destination, that is.

    [​IMG]

    Where he greets a bitter rival like an old friend.

    MYNOCK: "Steve!"

    [​IMG]

    STEVE: "What is it this time, Mynock?"

    [​IMG]

    wmic process where name="Spacebeast.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority"

    Seriously now, this is amazing.

    Mynock and Steve possible? team-up. Also Sullarn?
