Hello all,

Revan81790, Graeme, 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!"
"You are bonkers."

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.

It goes further, though. After doing simple things like dialog editing, 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.

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 a PM.

Thanks guys,
Crunchy

At this point we are not sure, as we are just recruiting a team right now.
But we'll definitely keep it in mind :)

Just so I can wrap my head around this: you're re-writing KOTOR2?

Essencially that's what we are doing. We are rewriting the KOTOR 2 story to revolve around fan-based KOTOR 3 elements.

How do you plan to work around the lack of the original voice actors to work with?

James H.
04-21-2009, 07:49 PM
It would not be possible to ask the original voice actors to do it for us, so there's one option; unoriginal voice actors. Do not worry; it won't be bad at all, unless we've got bad voice actors.

hello just curious as to what do you plan the stories main focus to surround, what kind of experience do you have, do you have any "special minimods" to add to this mod, do you plan on making this as canon as possible? sorry if it sounds like im single'ing you out but we have seen alot of new modders out there lately that are not as sure as they could be getting into something they couldn't handle im not criticizing you or anything just trying to help you get the mod plan to its highest potential, and good luck either way its nice to see so many new total conversion mods in production lately

That's being explained in the OP.
As to experience; my experience is 2da editing, DLG editing and skinning. I could also voice act. However, that cannot be done until I get my ordered microphone. And yes, we will try to make our mod as canon as it possibly could be. I hope that answered your questions, Yatsookey.

DarthDac, if you look at my other mods, I think your question will be answered. =)

and Ulmont, that sounds really awesome, but we aren't that far into the modding process to start thinking about a new music score. Haha, but thanks for offering and we'll keep it in mind.
