View Full Version : Voices in the Box

10-13-2005, 04:44 AM
I am always terrible at picking out what people are saying. When you are in the prison (riddle) box in KOTOR, there are voices whispering in the background.

"That was one of the best ...s ever."
"Nobody wants to talk about the sith because they could have..."
"Did you hear about the..."
"Do you want to see...."
"Gather up all...."
".....it's not one of the...."
"Everyone's talking about the...."

Anyone with a saved game want to take a stab at it? Maybe the parts I'm missing are just jibberish. But maybe not?

"That was one of the best sandwiches ever."
"Nobody wants to talk about the sith because they could have bugged the rooms"
"Did you hear about the man with one leg?"
"Do you want to see my private places?"
"Gather up all the dung beetles."
"Crap, it's not one of the original pieces."
"Everyone's talking about the picnic tomorrow."

I'm obviously not serious

I've never heard any voice, but then again I don't listen to hard in the box - plus I rarely activate it. I'll listen for it next time.

10-13-2005, 05:13 PM
There are voices whispering in the background? Really?

Hmmm, never noticed anything...

10-13-2005, 10:56 PM
I always kind of wished I could have taken the box to the Rakata.

10-13-2005, 11:59 PM
I just noticed that they are the same voices whispering in the background in the Sith academy on Korriban.

Taking the box to the Rakata would have been great. Did you ever try it?

And Darth Covetous, I think you must be right. Especially about the picnic.

10-14-2005, 04:50 PM
I think the Box automatically dissapears when you bring it to the Unknown World.

10-15-2005, 06:29 AM
Is there any explanation (like with the gizkas and Sasha)? I'd love to hear that... the Gizka explanation was IMO already pretty funny :)

Same here. Neat, I'll have to give a real listen & if I can ever beat this Punisher addiction & reinstall Knights.

The voices on Koriban have nothing to do with the Rakata box, theyre supposed to be the dead sith lords whispering different things. Thats why you hear so many voices when you go there.

10-18-2005, 01:09 AM
^^They may have nothing to do with the voices in the Rekata box, but they reused the sound files. They are played in both places.

10-18-2005, 02:18 AM
I never really heard or listened to them personally when I was on Koriban, I just read thats what they were supposed to be and just assumed that they were different than the voices in the box or at least had a different purpose. I think having those voices on Koriban makes the place a bit creepier.

10-18-2005, 08:15 AM
is there any use in this box?
you go in, talk a bit and go out
or am i missing something?

10-18-2005, 05:14 PM
If by "use" you mean go and get objects, items, and xp then no, you don't "use" the box ;)

The Doctor

You get xp by bringing the box to the Hutt on Tatooine. He pays you to do it, too.

10-19-2005, 03:30 AM
with 'use' i ment that maybe some extra persons to talk with, a small quest or something

10-19-2005, 01:21 PM
Not really, just answer some riddles and if you get them correct you live, if you get one wrong... ;)

10-23-2005, 02:30 PM
What's this Box? I've never heard of it, at least not by that name... ???

10-23-2005, 03:55 PM
when you talk to Lurze Kesh near the Cantina in Dreshdae on Korriban, he asks you to get him some spice from the cargo hold in a secret compartment on the Ebon Hawk. Give it to him (you have no use for it anyway and you gain 1000+ credits) and he asks you to deliver a weird cubical/pyramidal box to Motta the Hutt on Tatooine in the Swoop Registration. Lurze warns you *not* to open the box but he dosen't tell you why. If you open the box, you mentally get sucked into an endless void where a lone Rakatan stands near a bed. The only way to get out of the box is to exchange riddles with the Rakatan until someone gets the other's wrong. If you lose, you don't necessarily die, you just become mentally trapped in the box and the Rakatan's mental self inhabits your body which, theorietically, is probably outside of the box. But there's no way to leave without getting the Rakatan to answer one of your riddles wrong. Sorry I just ruined the side-quest but I like to type long and unnecessarily complex posts.

10-23-2005, 05:23 PM
Whoa. Cool. I usually turn down the offer since I go to Korriban third, and Manann fourth. But that's just me. After reading a few spoilers for side-plots I never knew about, I may do Korriban first next time.

If you get one of the riddles wrong, do you get a chance to redeem yourself?

The Doctor
10-23-2005, 05:27 PM
^ no, you don't. You die.

10-23-2005, 05:35 PM
^Sounds like Gollum and Bilbo in The Hobbit...

If Precious asks, and it doesn't answer, we eats it, my preciousss...

10-23-2005, 05:40 PM
No, it just shows you character clutching his head in frustration, and then it says that your entire party has died. The end.

10-23-2005, 05:42 PM
My above post was a j/k. I just saw the similarity. I mean, it's the same. In both cases:

1 - You swap riddles
2 - Winner gets what he wants
3 - Loser... doesn't.

10-23-2005, 09:45 PM
Oops, sorry. I didn't know there was a 3rd page. ^_^'
I was responding to StaffSaberist.

10-23-2005, 10:13 PM
^ no, you don't. You die.
I don't mean to nag but
If you lose, you're mentally trapped in the box. The Rakatan possesses your body and you just get stuck in the box until another curious George opens the box because people on a certain forum told him to.

The Doctor
10-23-2005, 10:51 PM
^ By die, I meant you have to reload a previous save.

10-23-2005, 11:11 PM
Agreed. Shall we continue with the thread?

10-24-2005, 12:51 AM
Agreed. Sorry to start this, I just never heard of it. (You think you've done all the side plots...)

As a few others said, I never noticed voices on Korriban. The world was creepy enough. :shiver:

Yeah, disembodied whispering voices creep me out, specially if there's no other sound. Eep.

I've never heard them thankfully, I should listen next time.

10-26-2005, 06:20 PM
Chaleur, you have sharp ears. Now that my SwKotor tech issue is fixed, I made it to the Box. I heard whispers, but all I could make out was something like "Sith". So, that's a good pair of ears you have. Don't be hard on yourself. I didn't get any of it, I was just creeped out. :shiver:

You know, someone should make a mod to give a small amount of XP for getting out. I got out on my first attempt through, meaning I didn't lose there, but I would have liked to get at least 50 XP, since the stakes were so high. :)

10-26-2005, 06:39 PM
Well, it was your fault for going inside the box so...

10-26-2005, 06:44 PM

And it's not like those riddles were so hard you had to guess the answers.

10-26-2005, 06:49 PM
Some of them MAY have been difficult had I not heard so many of them before. But, like the Rakatan, I have no clue as to how to get the answer to the question my player asked (I am good with #'s, but not in riddles.)

And JMJ, I went into the Box so I could test the voices. Not to mention, I was fairly confident that I wouldn't lose... since I now have a save slot marked "Korr_The Box". Right before I opened it. :) I would have expected a black void, though, not a white one... :)

The Doctor
10-26-2005, 07:11 PM
^ Which ones were hard? They were all far to easy if you read all the answers before randomly picking one.

10-26-2005, 08:52 PM
I said they COULD have been hard if I hadn't known the answer beforehand. Since I do know... never mind. All I really wanted to say was that as a kid (unlike Mission, I can admit it) I don't know all the same things. But since I was told them before, and lost small change by them, I remember the riddles.

10-26-2005, 09:09 PM
Those riddles were made so that even a young children could answer them quite easily.
There might be a small ambiguity with some answers but most of them are dead obvious since the choices usually have nothing to do with the riddle.

10-26-2005, 09:43 PM
Hey, no need to be hostile. What are you, a habitual Dark Sider? Forgive me for not living up to society's standards, but the last thing I was doing at the time was thinking how bad it would look if I lost there. I don't play for public image; I play to win.

Theis is what I heard:
"That was one of the best ...s ever." - couldn't make it out
"Nobody wants to talk about the sith because they could have killed us all"
"Did you hear about the Sith named Revan?"
"Do you want to see..." - couldn't make it out
"Gather up all the children(...)" - their may have been more, I couldn't tell.
".....it's not one of the...." - didn't hear this at all
"Everyone's talking about the war. You can't escape it."
I could be wrong, but this is what I heard.
