Almost four years later, I have completed the series and it feels pretty good. Cubicle 7 did a wonderful job creating each book with a great deal of love and care. Proud to have these on my shelf.
Here's the post that started it!

I know Kandyse McClure best as Anastasia Dualla on Battlestar Galactica. I've seen her in many other things and she's a great actor. It's her physical beauty and features that naturally resemble Ahsoka Tano's beauty that makes me think she'd be a natural casting choice.
Also, these artist renditions of Ahsoka- if she were a human, look a lot like Kandyse!
Or we could cast Meevers Desu!

The Diathim, also referred to as Angels, were a mysterious species of winged sentients who inhabited the planet Iego and Millius Prime, the largest of its manymoons. The Diathim were reputed for their beauty, and the way in which they appeared would vary depending on the beholder. They shared their habitat with the Maelibi, who lived below the ground. When the young Anakin Skywalker first met his future wife Padmé Amidala, he compared her natural beauty to that of the Diathim.

There are several forum threads that talk about that very idea. Some of them are direct conversions to other settings. Other discussions are along the lines of recreating the system for more generic uses.
This blog post is about one of those projects that has come along so well that it's in its Beta phase.
Sky Wars: Edge of the Kingdom roleplaying game.
Here is the description and links from their site:
Explore Osfilia, a loose collection of realms still working to recover more than thirty years after the devastation caused by the Sky Wars. Players may choose from eight races, able to become powerful mages, devout paladins, shapeshifting druids or follow any combination of eighteen different career paths.
Using the rules from any of FFG’s Star Wars core rulebooks (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force & Destiny), GMs and players will be able to create new adventures in what we hope will be an exciting fantasy sandbox.
Sky Wars: Edge of the Kingdom features:
- New and updated rules to convert Sci-Fi to Fantasy
- 8 Races, including Gnomes, Half Orcs, Dark Elves and Golems
- Pages and pages of gorgeous artwork, donated by over 45 artists from Deviantart.com
- 19 Career trees including Monks, Dragoons, Warlocks, Diplomats and more
- Brand new ability and spell trees granting fantastic powers and magic to each career
- Fantasy-based gear including weapons, armor and equipment
- Sky Wars-era mounts and airships
- Complete templates for NPCs and Adversaries

Sky Wars: Edge of the Kingdom is created by a company called Redshirt Down. The main guys behind this project are Rob Walker, Adam Bourret, and Matt Van Engelen. They were able to gain the support of several artists who contributed top notch work to this project and it is the art that makes all of this hard work feel so amazing and almost official. Check out these examples...

The following are a series of pictures created by the artist called TheMichaelMacRae. This character appears in a good portion of his work. I'm unaware of any continuity or story, these images are arranged in an order that seems to make some sense. Enjoy.
