Hello all,

A month ago, Revan81790 and myself were planning to make a fan-made Kotor 3. Most everyone said, and I quote,

"Do you know how long that will take?"
"By the time you finish, they will have a Kotor 4!" :headbump
"You are bonkers." :lol:

So in response to this, we decided to alter the storyline to fit K2's game. Let me explain. The storyline is very fragile and easily to edit and alter. So, Kotor's story mostly revolves around finding those lost Jedi masters to learn what happened to you. But with some simple dialog editting and some scripting, we can change that to run along these lines: Finding the lost Jedi Masters to help you battle the True Sith.:nod:

It goes further, though. After doing simple things like dialog editting, we need some new party members! Using these new party members, the storyline also changes, without module editting, or other very intense things.

In short, we are trying to rewrite Kotor 2:TSL storyline, not to alter the game, but the STORY. The same planets, mostly the same quests/side-quests, but a different storyline to accompany those quests and planets.

PROLOGUE:
It takes place in the exact time period as Kotor 2:TSL. However, within the five years between Kotor 1 and 2, Revan and his master, Kreia, have made contact with the True Sith. These Sith have powers greater than anyone has ever fathomed, and Revan needs help to fight them. He travels back into Republic space in an attempt to find the Ebon Hawk and his old friends. At the same time, Carth Onasi is onboard a republic ship, called the Harbinger, and is searching for the Ebon Hawk to find Revan. What they both don't now is: you own the Ebon Hawk as a bounty hunter. They also are unaware that the True Sith have followed Revan and have boarded the Harbinger.
As the Harbinger is taken over by Lord Sion, one of the three True Sith Lords, and attack Ebon Hawk, Carth escapes onto the Ebon Hawk, but is locked in a cargo hold. Revan and his master also board the Hawk, but some Sith assassins are still in pursuit. They defeat them all due to Revan's superior teachings, but Kreia and you are knocked cold and presumed to die. Revan is able to repair the Hawk and dock at Peragus in hopes to find help for his master's injuries.

PERAGUS: After the Hawk docked at Peragus, a security staff barged in and took Carth into custody because it seemed that he was the one responsible for the Ebon Hawk nearly being destroyed. You and Kreia have been taken into medical, and when you and she wake up, you discover that your PC was once a Jedi (inspired by Aurra Sing) Revan hid in a foot locker and was taken into the Peragus Docking Bay Cargo Hold. He escapes and is now ready to bail everyone out and off this rock. Revan is able to unlock the doors for you, but is caught off guard and is knocked out by HK-50, whom he thinks is his very own HK-47. Sion arrives at Peragus and you, Kreia, Carth, and Revan, all escape to the Ebon Hawk where you discover that you are the last Jedi.

If I told you guys the rest, there wouldn't be any surprises, right?

But here is a quick list of SOME characters this time around:

Revan
A wise Jedi Master, previously a Sith Lord, but now redeemed to the Light to fight the True Sith.

Carth
A strong-willed and witty Admiral for the Republic, Carth is determined to protect the Republic and his old companion, Revan, at all costs.

Mission and Zaalbar
This loyal and quick-witted Twi-lek bounty hunter and her Wookiee friend, Big Z, are back bust you out of trouble whenever you need it.

Master Zhar
Not much is known about this elusive Twi-lek Jedi Master after he was presumed dead when Malak bombed the Jedi Enclave.

Bastila
Bastila, the headstrong and particularly attractive Jedi, not to mention, Revan's love interest, will do everything she can to redeem herself from her past actions.

Canderous
What would Kotor be without Canderous?

Gruru
A Duros in a similar position as Canderous in Kotor 1, Gruru is a cruel weapon's master who, previously, crafted the 2 proton missiles which destroyed the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine.

HK-49
HK-47 has recieved an upgrade. Revan after studying the Rakatan driods, has upgraded his good companion and assassin droid with Rakatan cortosis body plates and a greater AI. Now called Hk-49, he is determined to exterminate those Sith meatbags.

At least 2 party members have yet to be revealed...

Now we get to the good stuff. :bounce1:

As of now, our team for this mod is just Revan81790 and myself. Obviously, the more people on the team, the faster this mod will be released.
We are in great need of:

Script Writers - Not much scripting, but still needed
Dialog Editors - There's a LOT of dialog to edit.
Testers - (and eventually Alpha, and Beta testers)
Reskinners - A good deal of reskinning is at hand. Experience with GIMP or Photoshop is obviously neccessary.
Voice Actors - To play the roles of the above characters (of course theres more, but I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise)
Dreamers - If you've got an awesome idea, share it with us!

If anyone is interested in joining this work in progress, please drop me an email PM at ~snip~. :comp9:

Thanks guys,
Crunchy

I have joined the modding team. Mostly as a "dreamer" and potential voice actor

You would be surprised how much potential this mod has. It is awesome what we have planned now.

Though this mod is still in a final decision making stage we still do need members. Mostly anyone of any modding skill is useful in this mod.

Alright I am writing a F.A.Q while this mod is still in development stages.

Now officially this mod is being done by Team Bantha Fodder. Our site is currently under construction

CSLCM (or Complete story line conversion mod)

FAQ
"There are dark places in the galaxy where few tread. Ancient centers of learning, of knowledge. But I did not walk alone. To be united by hatred is a fragile alliance at best. But my will was not law. There were disagreements, ambition… and hunger for power. There are techniques within the Force against which there is no defense. I was cast down, stripped of my power, exiled. I suffered indignit. Know that much may happen here, but above all, do not forget this—you may trust in me. We cradle each other's lives, and what threatens one of us, threatens us both. And if you find you cannot trust me, trust in your training. Trust in yourself. Never doubt what you have done. All your decisions have brought you to this point."

Kreia - Knights of the Old Republic 2, The Sith Lords

1st. "Is this mod a Total conversion mod?"

Answer: No this mod is not a TC. What this mod does is completely change your party members and parts of the story line. You still have the same planets and you still play as the Jedi Exile.

2. "Does this mod have Darth Revan in it."

Answer: Yes this mod has Darth Revan as a party member who replaces T3-M4. He will be fully garbed in his Darth Revan robes and will be voice acted.

3. "Will this mod have all the previous romances that K1 had (AKA female PC will be able to romance Carth or male PC will be able to romance Bastila)."

Answer: It has been decided that Bastila will not be romanced by the PC. She still remains Revan's love interest. Carth however can have the potential to be romanced by the PC.

4. "When will this mod be released"

Answer: Eventually. There are only roughly 4 people on this modding team at the moment. However rest assured that this mod will be released either before the end of 2008 or just a little into 2009

5. "Will all the characters be voice acted?"

Answer: Yes almost all the party members will be voice acted by actual people. A few will have alien voices. However we are still in desperate need of voice actors so don't be afraid to speak up. Party members may or may not be the only ones who need voice acting.

6. "Will this mod contain new modules?"

Answer: No this mod will not contain any modules. Since we do not have any mappers on our team as of yet. Maybe when the mod is released we shall include an add-on with new modules. But that has yet to be decided

7. "Will this mod conflict with other mods?"

Answer: As of yet we do not know. But many are self explanitory (Party member mods for instance).

8. " How do I join the modding team"

Answer: You PM either me, Darth Traya, Revan or Crunchyboy. Like said before any experience necessary. Even if you just have an idea or wish to voice act.

Team Bantha Fodder's new site is up. Go there for new information for the mod. We will also update as needed here

You betcha. There's a Team Gizka, so why not Team Bantha Fodder?
It rolls off the tongue.

But as it says on the site at www.teambanthafodder.tk, we are in need of dialog editors and scripters more than anything at the moment.
The site will be updated frequently, and there's always a spot open if you are a "Dreamer"; that is, a rookie with a lot of imagination. Quite frankly, this mod depends creativity and the more we can get together, the better and possibly more fun this mod will become.
Of course this storyline mod will have a basic set storyline that we are creating, but it is you, the users and the "dreamers", who really create the "juiciness" of this storyline. If you have any ideas, let us know, and we will try our very best to incorporate it into this ever-growing mod.

Agreed. There's already a Team Bantha - might not be good to choose a name like Team Bantha Fodder. :)

Guess it shouldn't be such a disaster.
On a sidenote - RakataDark mentioned to PM Darth Traya. I'm Darth Traya, incase you didn't know that yet.

Alright then. A few updates. We are working on Peragus right now on scripting dialogue and party members. Here are a few screenies

On a side note this mod is still progressing very slowly. We are still in need of members to help with the mod. Any experience necessary.

We are also in desperate need of voice actors. Both male and female are needed
