The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural is a first-person account of the storied life of Gnost-Dural, famed Jedi Master and Keeper of the Jedi Archives during the time of the Old Republic. The book follows the Kel Dor from his early days as a Padawan, through The Great War and the Battle of Bothawui, and provides insight into the state of the galaxy prior to the events of the game. The journal ends with him being chosen to compile the new Jedi Archives on Tython after the destruction of the Jedi Temple during the sacking of Coruscant. Throughout the book there are notes and annotations by Jedi Grand Master Satele Shan which give further context to the state of the galaxy and the long-term ramifications left by these events.
I had the distinction of serving as the editor for The Journal of Gnost-Dural, which was written by Rob Chestney and included in the Collector’s Edition of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
