So, I was always wondering what would happen if Nihilus got on the SF?

It's supposed to corrupt you to something truly evil and primal...Nihilus kinda already is.

He is also a Force Devourer who feeds on massive stores of Force power. Which the SF is, isn't it?

So if he had been on it, would he able to suck up all the energy in it?

I wouldn't be surprised if he received so much energy that it hurt him, like when he tried to drain the Exile.

The reason it hurt him when he tried to drain the Exile was because she was a wound in the Force, like him. She was the sole purpose of his existance, an echo of Malachor, sort of. Draining her would be like feeding on the death of the Force, which would hurt him.

It would probably be a contest of who devours who, since the Star Forge was powered by Darkside energies. It corrupted its users to produce more "fuel" for itself. If I remember the KOTOR story correctly it pretty much drained the whole Rakatan species of their force connection in the end.

Still, since the Nihilus is very strong in the Darkside he'd probably be a tasty snack for the Forge. While the Forge isn't really a life form, so I doubt Nihilus could drain it. There is no mention in the game of Nihilus being able to lick up Darkside power from places strong in it. He's just described as devouring the life force of others to satisfy his hunger and increase his power. I doubt the Star Forge has a life force.

Stoffe's idea makes sense. Remember, according to Bastila's holocron, in the DS Revan ending, nobody could use the Star Forge anymore.

Still, I would have liked to see Darth Nihilus control the Star Forge if Revan was set to Dark Side. Man, that would change the story quite a bit...
