Sith Lords of the Star Wars Expanded Universe

I spent the better part of the last two days fixing up the half bathroom on the first floor. New counter vinyl covering, new light fixtures, and new bathroom sink and faucet. The sink was quite an issue as the supplied gasket for the drain would not seal and I went all over creation trying to find a larger gasket to fit the larger sink. I think I have it done now, but what a path to get there. At least the bathroom looks good and I also changed the hallway ceiling lights as well. Time for a break!

Sith Lords of the Star Wars Expanded Universe
Most of you know I am a monster Star Wars fan, especially for all things Sith related. I understand that not many know of the characters of the Expanded Universe, so here is a gallery and quick note on some Dark Lords of the Sith you may not know.

Darth Sion
One of the three members of the Sith Triumvirate in the game Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords, Darth Sion was held together by his embrace of the darkside of the force:


Darth Traya
Another member of the KOTOR Triumvirate, Darth Traya is as cool a character as there is in Star Wars:


Darth Bane
The Sith Lord who made "The Rule of Two", Darth Bane is perhaps the greatest Sith in the Expanded Universe:

My personal favorite.

Darth Zannah
Darth Bane's apprentice and eventual conqueror, Darth Zannah is a master of Sith Alchemy and uses a double bladed lightsaber:


Darth Plagueis
The master of Darth Sidious, it is thought that Plagueis was the first to create life through influence on midichlorians (Anakin Skywalker) and next year there will be a new novel about this mysterious Sith Lord:


Naga Sadow
An ancient Sith Lord, Naga Sadow pictured here with his meditation Sphere:

The ancient Sith used Sith Swords which were created with alchemy and could withstand lightsaber battles.

Freedon Nadd
One of the first Sith Lords to have the ability to imbue his spirit to remain, Freedon Nadd is a curious Expanded Universe character:


Of course the Sith used Holocrons like the Jedi, but Sith artifacts were triangle in shape:

Nifty.

Of course the greatest of all the Sith, Darth Sidious, was a master of influence. Here is a picture I love of Sidious and the future Darth Vader:


Have a good night.

You're doing the right thing in rennovating your house, GYSC. By upgrading the kitchen and bath, you have added substantial value to your home. Of course, you no doubt intend to live there for quite some time, if not the rest of your life.

But if you should decide to sell it, maybe because of a job transfer or something like that, now all you need to do is give it a fresh coat of paint. Double the rennovation costs and add it onto the fair market value--determined by a broker, not an appraiser--and generally you'll get close to that price.

Hey Gawains!

Yes I will be here for some time so any improvements are for us for the most part. That damn sink seal is leaking again! I will have to get serious on it and show it who is boss.
