So far we know that you will go to: Dantooine, Telos and Dxun. And I have also read somewehere there would be 7 planets to visit. Anyone who would know which other planets you will visit?
Which ones do you want to visit?

Yes there will be 7. Also, I think I heard somewhere that (as usual) Tatooine will be visited...

I guess it wouldn't be a Star Wars game without Tatooine...

LOL Yeah, Tatooine's been used in way too many Star Wars games. (And movies/books) It's already been confirmed here (http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/527/527990p1.html) though, that it wont be returning in this game.

Not having Tatooine is just fine with me, too much of the twin suns, Tuskens, Jawa's, and sand, "I hate sand, it's coarse, and it gets everywhere". :D

Any news of a snow planet or something? There was a lack of that in KotOR.

Coruscant.... a real representation of it, not a remaped JO Nar Shada, if you played JA you know what I'm getting at.

A snow planet would be pretty neat too...

Actually Tattoine wasn't in the Empire Strikes Back either and it was the second Star Wars movie, so possibly KOTOR 2 is just following that pattern.

It seems to me KOTOR 2 is shaping up to be darker like ESB was darker, possibly leading to a RTOJ like KOTOR 3.

And that would rule! :D

The first time I saw those full cloak jedi robes I almost cried they are soooo sweet, but yea I was getting pretty sick of tatooine, and as long as they make Kotor games I'll buy them so the planets don't matter to me that much I guess, but I'd like to see Alderaan.

RedHawke

Yeah I'd like to see Alderaan as well!

Because we all know what happens to poor Alderaan later on! :deathstar

The one thing that I find interesting about Dxun is the fact that it is a planet that has been featured in the EU before, in the old Tales of the Jedi series. A very intriguing, sublte reference. The body of the ancient Sith Freedon Nadd was placed there when Master Arca, the Qel-Droma brothers and Tott Doneeta discovered his corpse on Onderon, the planet that the Dxun moon orbits. Which does make me wonder... Onderon has been featured in various EU tales before(Palpatine even dies for the last bloody time on that planet), and it would be nice if we'd visit that planet as well... or at the very least see it in orbit

It's also in Freedon Nadd's tomb where the Sith Lord Exar Kun(who fought the Republic some 40-50 years before KotOR) found his first information about the Sith, and one might say that hise journey down the Dark Side started there. (IIRC, he commits his first Dark Side act there by killing the two Naddists who showed him the way to the tomb).

(as a short side-note, this planet was IIRC also featured in an old story where Darth Bane, the one who created the 'master/apprentice' rule, is also on Dxun to ponder in which direction he should take the new Sith Order)

All in all, I wonder wether our characters will be visiting the old tomb(who knows what Exar Kun left behind?), or if the Dxun moon will hide another deadly secret...

Edit: Having read the description of the planet, there is another tidbit that I forgot which might be interesting. During the final weeks of the Kun/Qel-Droma Sith War against the Republic, their Mandalorian allies staged an attack on Onderon, led by Lord Mandalore himself. During the assault, a Republic fleet, under the command of Captain Vanicus, helped the planet of Onderon. Following their mandate, the Mandalorians chose not to surrender, and fled to the Dxun moon where most of the Mandalorians found their end. Lord Mandalore was shot down in the atmosphere of the Dxun Moon, and most likely went down fighting in a glorious battle against the monsters found on the Dxun moon. Lord Mandalore's helmet was found by another Mandalorian while they searched for him, and that one Mandalorian declares himself the new Lord Mandalore, continuing their tradition.

Who knows, maybe we'll come across some Mandalorians who were left behind on the sacred moon..?

didn't kotor say that mandalore died by revan's hand? i guess not then. oh well, i guess it meant he died fighting revan's forces or this is another mandalore.

Hiroki

The Mandalore that found the helmet of THAT Mandalore died by Revans hand.

RedHawke
07-16-2004, 11:54 PM
So Burrie, you are basically saying that Dxun is a pretty busy and dark place in Star Wars EU stories.

If Dxun is like that, I really hope it is the place where in KOTOR: TSL you can also start down the Dark Path yourself!

Sith Lord style! :lightning

Also thanks Burrie for the heads up on Dxun by the way, as I am not all caught up on all of the EU storylines. :D

Dxun looks FAR superior to all of the planets that where in KOTOR1!

Hmm... A KOTOR:TSL Surfing Mini Game... I like it! :D

Find the coolest wave with force sight and make it from your ship to shore whilst deflecting blaster bolts with your lightsabre, and cutting down Sith apprentices trying to steal your wave... yeah!

:bdroid2:

And you guys have seen Apocalypse Now way too many times! :D

I was hoping to get to use Force Lightning on those darn Firaxia Sharks on Manaan, but nooooo!!! They stick you in the clunky suit with the lame sonic whistle!

I so wanted to be the Sith Electric Eel! :lightning

:bdroid2:

Back on topic: I hope the planets in KOTOR: TSL are also going to be more lively than the KOTOR planets were... By that I mean too much empty running space in some areas.

Mav
07-23-2004, 07:26 AM
:bdroid2:

Back on Topic: I really want different weather effects, by that I mean the weather actually changes every time you visit a planet or a different location, who would of thought that weather changes oh my god can that really happen??? Come to think of it the only time I can even remember seeing rain in Star Wars is when Obi-Wan goes to Kamino (sp?) and finds the clones. You would think that in the vastness of the Star War's universe it would rain on more planets than just one, and that one planet being completely made of water.....SHEESH. OK I'm finished with my blabbering.

RedHawke
07-23-2004, 07:36 AM

Mav you also forgot the Blizzard on Hoth, you know when Han had to put Luke in his Tauntaun to keep him warm "I thought they smelled bad on the outside" and Blizzards are technically frozen rain, right?

They are supposed to have weather effects in KOTOR: TSL, and I hope they are varied as well.

Mav
07-23-2004, 07:47 AM
But still what I am saying is that it is like every planet has one type of weather and ONE only.

Tantooine = Dry, Hot, Desert
Hoth = Snow, only snow, nope I haven't seen a springtime there
Kamino = Rain, it never stopped raining in the movie...
Dagobah = swampy, nope I didn't see the grassland or mountainous region
Coruscant = city only city, is it man made or something?

the only place that had a little bit of vary in its terrain was Naboo, underwater Gungan-ness and then the forest where they first land, the grassy hills where the Gungans battle the droids, and the lake where Anakin and Padme go. Okay I'm finished blabbering again.

Prime
07-23-2004, 10:18 AM
Indeed. The constant weather helps identify the planet...

I suppose that is true, but I guesss I'm just saying it wouldn't hurt for some planets to have different weather every now and then and different terrain as well.

It rained on Dagobah...

I'm hoping for varied weather effects on planets as well. It can't be a bright clear day all the time.....

Mav
07-23-2004, 09:31 PM
I don't remeber it raining on Dagobah?????

07-23-2004, 09:34 PM
ESB....Lukes inside Yoda's mud hutt eating the stew I think, R-2's peeking in the window while getting poured on.

I think its during that scene, been a while since I watched Empire, but I know theres a scene where R-2's getting rained on...

I also hope that the new planets in Kotor2 will be much larger and not have mini sub-planet's occupying the list. Oh, I almost forgot, let's hope all the planets are very interesting!

The developers have stated several times that the planets will be much more diverse than they were in KotOR. We're talking shuttle rides and stuff :)

From the LucasArts site:

Dxun is a moon to Onderon, but they are almost sister planets, and they even share a bit of the same atmosphere. Travel between them is a short shuttle ride away

The questuion is does Dxun count as part of Onderon or is it one of the 7 'planets' we will get to visit?

I'm thinking that may depend on how they include it in the story line. It could be that they write quests for both planets and they are counted separately. Alternatively, you could do a bunch of quests on Dxun and then go to Onderon for a battle and then come back, making it count as one (less likely option imo).

Again, we'll know more when the devs share some more info or when the game comes out.

Good questions.

I sure hope it doesn't count as 2 planets, that would suck!!! :eyeraise:
