how is plagueis alive in the new maul lockdown novel when sidious killed him 30 yrs or so before in darth plagueis novel?this is according to the timeline published in novels.
There is no inconsistency here. Maul: Lockdown is clearly stated to occur in 33 BBY, and Plagueis is said to have died in 32 BBY, according to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:30, February 24, 2014 (UTC)
Darth Plagueis spans a long period of time, and the timeline most likely used its start date as the spot on the timeline. 501stdogma(talk) 23:33, February 24, 2014 (UTC)
Correct, though the sections in the book itself are clearly marked with divider/header pages indicating the three time periods. So I'm not sure how the OP could have missed this. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 14:28, February 25, 2014 (UTC)
