Star Wars Fan Art
The TOR Community continues to amaze us with their talent, and RiaStarchild is no exception. Check out these gorgeous Star Wars and anime-inspired art from Ria’s Star Wars Pics thread. Ria says she started drawing a long time ago, and her newer drawings are usually her own creations or requests from friends and or forum users. You can also see more of Ria’s artwork on her deviantArt page and The World of MeRioS website.

Star Wars Fan Fiction
Throughout the years, fans have been inspired by Star Wars to create intriguing fiction and roleplaying opportunities. ArikVandar initiated a roleplaying story, Insurrection, which focuses on the planet of Onderon. The Onderon citizens are uprising against the recent takeover of the Sith Empire. Rumors say that the Jedi may be behind the rebellion and the Empire is sending out a task force to squelch the citizens.

You can enjoy reading Insurrection and other Star Wars fan fiction in the Roleplay and Play-by-Play forum.

There can never be too many Kel Dor's though in my biased opinion.

well, I guess you could put a different costume on the Kel Dor, but his face will still look the same, it has to be the mask that makes them look so alike.

Actually the masks on Kel Dors tend to be quite different, like the lekku bands of a Twilek or the tattoos of a Iridonian.

No one does and Lucas has not intention of giving Yoda a species. I suppose he wants Yoda to remain mysterious.

It is probably for the best, considering that he wouldnt be special if he were a common species.

Though on Kotor 1 there is another Jedi Master who is clearly of the same species of Yoda, so I guess he is not completely unique. Vodo or something was his name.

Jedi Master Vandar Tokare.
They are a rare species....Yaddle, Vandar and Yoda are the only known members of them, and they all have powerful capabilities and mentality with the force.

Yoda is a Yoda. That's all there is to say. There was master someone or other in KOTOR that was a yoda, but he diddnt say what race he was..

All there is to say on Yoda's species is that there was supposed to be a card in the starwars trading card game some years back, it had a bunch of his kind worshipping an idol that looked like them.

Unfortunately Lucas put the chains on that card, getting rid of the card, keeping further mystery on Yoda's race.
