Last night we reached the climax of our trilogy, where our Inquisitors pursued a Jedi to the Hutt planet of Varda VI; attempting to retain diplomatic relations whilst bringing down a rebel insurrection; an epilogy video was uploaded this morning, you can now see the complete trilogy from start to finish:

Thanks Mathew 🙂
