  • Did Lando ever do anything in Dark Nest/Swarm War? Never read those books, so I don't know. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 23:00, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I'll check it out. But first I'm going to get this damn todo template to work. :P --Imp 23:01, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Can you see the contents of the /todo page in the above template? Maybe it's just a cache issue with my computer. --Imp 23:05, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
        • There's nothing there! Anyway, I sectioned the New Republic section...hope that helped. .... 23:07, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Someone should do something about all the redlinks. It'll never be FA'd with all those. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 02:29, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
            • I'm on it. --Imp 08:15, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
  • The Emperor's End part looks good. Lando helped with battle droid invasion of Byss too (Dark Empire II) as I recall. I'll try to handle that tonight. -Fnlayson 20:12, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
    • OK, I wrote a paragraph for their attack on Byss with the X-1 war droids. Please review. -Fnlayson 06:01, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Sorry for not putting not as much time into Lando this week- I've been busy and my Net has been sluggish. I'll work on the Marvel some more this weekend, but the Thrawn section should be done. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 05:19, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Don't worry about it. Nice work on the Thrawn stuff. We are slowly but surely nearing the completion of the Marvel expansion. It's not the most entertaining thing to work on here at Wookieepedia, but it's a necessary evil. I'm going through the issues chronologically, expanding and creating sections as I go. --Imp 00:49, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Remember: Don't be afraid to rewrite what I add—you're a much better writer than me, and I tend to write expansions late at night, reducing my grammatical skills. --Imp 01:21, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
        • No problem. Just do what you can, when you can Atarumaster88. - Fnlayson 21:51, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I added Expand Shadows of the Empire to the To Do List. Is there anything left to add on Dark Empire (& Emperor's End)? - Fnlayson 21:51, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Not sure on DE. I've rewritten most of Imp's stuff- rewording mostly, especially with verb usage. I've also started working on Marvel. I agree, it's not very exciting. I think our next main focus should be Luke Skywalker- most of it is done, but the main thing lacking is Marvel- we could hit that as we work on Lando's Marvel appearances. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 02:46, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I totally agree—once Lando's out of the way we should work on Luke. Anyway, Lando: Do you think it would be a good idea to merge some, or all, of the Marvel subheaders? I think it would make the article a lot less cluttered. --Imp 20:04, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Looks like it. Sections Returning to Cloud City, Business on Bazarre and Further missions could be combined in a section called Further missions or something similar. -Fnlayson 20:21, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
          • He's getting there. Someone with a better knowledge of NJO than me should really do something to help Lando. I just borrowed Star by Star and found that Lando had nothing in there from that book before, so I added it. I'm sure there's more. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 06:45, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Since this is largely done can Lando be moved from Major focus to Works in progress? Then maybe move another article to Major focus. Just a thought.. -Fnlayson 19:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Imp's been gone recently. I'm planning on taking the project over if he doesn't return, and if I do, I will definitely pick another article to work on. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 20:59, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
  • A quick lookover tells me it could use more images, especially in the earlier areas. One from the Tales story in which he wins the Baron Administratorship would do great. Havac 22:58, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Pics from SOTE, too. And way more quotes. This baby is nowhere near done! Havac 23:11, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Alas, I am myself mostly a writer when it comes to articles, and I'm particularly bad when it comes to images. That's the problem with expanding the text so much- it has to be balanced by images. Same with quotes. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 23:15, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
      • That's not much of a problem really. Too much text and too few images is far better than vice versa. -Fnlayson 22:02, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I've been doing some sourcing (yawn) more later. Jediknight19bby (Jedi High Council Chambers) 22:14, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
    • This is gonna be my project as far as sourcing, it may take a few months. Don't put it up for main focus yet, I can handle most of this. Jediknight19bby (Jedi High Council Chambers) 15:40, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
  • I am going to begin copyediting the existing sections that are complete, per the checklist. If you want me to hold off for a while, let me know. Master Aban Fiolli (Alpheridies University ComNet) NR Seal 00:07, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
    • He's banned, and he's unlikely to ever finish that anyway. Go for it -- AckbarSigdmirableAckbar (It's A Trap!) 17:59, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
      • I have proof-read and edited up to the Battle of Endor subsection. I'll try to get through the other material shortly. Once this is done I'll go through the entire article again just to make certain. I added a quote about the Tibanna mine (also inferring Han and Lando's relationship) to the beginning of section 1.5 and moved the old quote down to subsection 1.5.6. I also added a couple of miscellaneous references that I knew of just to fill it out. Hope this helps at least a little. Master Aban Fiolli (Alpheridies University ComNet) NR Seal 03:50, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Marvel expansion has began after much delay! \o/ More to come ;) Greyman(Paratus) 18:28, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
    • Marvel issues up to, and including, 99 are done ;) Greyman(Paratus) 02:59, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
    • We're shooting to get Lando on the FAN page by 25 December, so everyone pitch in! Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 16:27, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

FocusEdit

Honestly, I was planning on tackling Lando myself in short order -- once I was done with my work on Hobbie. If you wanted to direct your efforts toward something else, that would be about as productive, and would give me great pleasure. I've really, really been looking forward to doing Lando myself. You'd make me a very happy Havac if you let me take this one. I mean, I could do Caedus or something, but I've really been longing to work on this article. I've already had two articles I was looking forward to and said, "Hey, I'll handle these" on this project taken and done by others, so I'd consider it a favor if you let me work on Lando and picked a new main focus for the project in general.

Demolition: Prima's Official Strategy GuideEdit

Thank to Jaymach. Here is the Lando text:

After Han Solo's capture, Lando Calrissian infiltrated Jabba the Hutt's palace disguised as a mercenary bodyguard named Tamtel Skreej. Once inside the palace, he began to plot Han's rescue. Before he can proceed, however, Lando must first earn Jabba's trust. Considering the brutal nature of Jabba's wicked new demolition event, volunteers have been scarce. Hoping to prove himself and impress Jabba, Lando has offered to take the controls of a modified desert skiff and enter the contest. By winning the event, he'll show the galaxy that Jabba's hirelings are the toughest, meanest combatants on all the colonized worlds. And in the meantime, he'll find a way to rescue Solo.

He is also mentioned in Lobot's entry:

After Lando Calrissian left Cloud City for Tatooine, the Empire took control of the settlement. Soon after, rebellious Ugnaughts captured Lobot, the city's computer liaison officer, and damaged his motivational-programming capsule. With a new mean streak, Lobot vowed to hunt down and dismantle EV-9D9, an evil droid who once tried to destroy Cloud City. The cybord stole a cloud car and traveled to Jabba's palace, where EV-9D9 manages the Hutt's droid pool. Before he could complete his mission, however, Lobot was captured. Jabba planned to feed the intruder to his rancor, but Tamtel Skreej stepped forward and suggested that the cyborg and his cloud car be entered into Jabba's tournament. The Hutt agreed. Lobot doesn't realize that Tamtel Skreej is really Lando in disguise. And with his new personality, the cyborg has become a very dangerous and vicious opponent.

I added it to the source list, but you may like to consider whether this provides anything to add to the article. I thought it might add something about Lobot's role in the contest too. He is also in the JO sourcebook, but no new info so I added that one myself. --Eyrezer 01:11, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Super Empire Strikes Back Official Game SecretsEdit

Let me know if you have a subpage I can put this sort of stuff. Here is Lando's bio from this strategy guide:

Lando Calrissian, like Han Solo, is a rogue and adventurer. But he's found a new, more sedate way of life as the administrator of Cloud City, which he must think is the strangest scam he's ever come up with. Very little is known about Calrissian's background. Some say his accent is similar to a Corellian's, but he doesn't talk about it. That's not to say that Lando Calrissian is tight-mouthed. He will talk your ear off if you let him - mostly lies, of course. Lando is known to be one of the biggest liars in the galaxy. That is, according to his good friend, Han Solo. Lando Calrissian once owned the Millennium Falcon, but he lost it to Han Solo in a high-stakes game of Sabacc. Something happened at that time, creating at least a temporary rift between the two friends, and Calrissian ended up at Cloud City while Solo used the Falcon to increase his trade as a smuggler, eventually getting into the trouble he's in now.
