View Full Version : Your first characters...

10-25-2002, 03:59 PM

I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm already starting to plan what kind of a character I'll be roleplaying in my first time, and what kind I'll be playing afterwards. What I'm truly hoping to see in KotR is that we are allowed to ROLEplay our character the way we see fit, and from what I've seen so far, we just might be allowed to do that...

For my first character, I'm thinking of playing the usual politically correct hero, prolly a soldier as his class. I'm thinking that he'll probably be skilled in the areas of rifles, diplomacy and such. He'll truly believe in the Force, and once he finds out about his destiny, he'll follow it with all his heart. Once he starts building his saber, I think he'll be creating a green blade, and probably wield two blades at the same time(I just love the concept for some reason :p ). He'll stay true to the Light Side, and will stay away from the Dark Side, unless he truly sees no way out of the situation...

As for a second character, I'm thinking more of a Rogue, a bit of a Han Solo character. This character will prolly be skilled in firing with dual guns than trying to talk his way out of a situation. As for the Force, it's all nonsense to him, and tries to stay as far away from it. Too mystical for his tastes, and he might be afraid of the whole Light vs. Dark Side thingy. If he finds out about his special destiny, he'll run away from it. If he MUST undergo training (as in, the player MUST dual his player as Jedi else he can't finish the game), he will do it more out of curiosity instead of seeing it as necessary. Once his training is completed, he might use it occasionaly, but he'd rather be interest in his OWN instincts instead of those from the Force. He's not really bad, he is a good guy, just not interested in the Force, afraid of becoming corrupted like the Dark Jedi. However, he just might succumb to the Dark Side.

And who knows what'll come after these characters? A scout with dangerous tendecies to the Dark Side? A tragic hero, like Ulic Qel-droma and Anakin Skywalker, who joins the Dark Side to defeat it from within, but might redeem himself in the end? I sincerely hope that the possibilites will be infinite...

These are some ideas for my characters... so I'd like to know, what kind of character will YOU be roleplaying in KotOR?

I think I'll turn to the dark side :D

My character will be a wealthy son of a system lord, with a taste for credits and the ladies.. ;)

My first character will be a goodie two shoes Jedi.

My second character will be an evil Sith that cuts down people for just existing. That's right look out alien NPCs I'm coming for ya. j/k

Eventually after playing it 3 or 4 times I'd go back to what I did on JK. Basicly killing everything that moves(even droids).

What is it about Star Wars games and lightsabers that just makes you want to try the lightsaber out on anything and everything? :slsaber: The lightsaber has to be the #1 all time greatest weapon conceived of.

That's one thing I don't know about with Bounty Hunter, no lightsaber to wield. BH will still be cool though.

The dark side is tempting but like most of you I will at least start out as a "good" Jedi and if I can choose, my saber will be green and a single blade. The dark side will get me at some point though and I will have to play a Sith or dark Jedi.:rofl:

My first time through I am wanting to be a Jedi Master....one with the force.

Second time I'm not too sure about.....I am leaning a bit more towards the scout role.

After that it will be a dark jedi....who knows what could happen then.....:evil2:

I'm gonna be a scoundrel who gets all the girls.

10-30-2002, 02:08 PM
I'm going to be a reckless scoundrel, who gets himself way in over his head. :D

well if bioware are using the role playing rules from Wotc then i wana be a sith prophet. these guys were meant to the most powerful of all sith bar a sith lord and even then it was close. they had the ability to see the future or trands of it and they were better fighters than most sith assasins/warriors...think darth maul then add the emperors force powers and you get the idea...plus they got use cool weapons like the sith sword which looked like a normal sword cept it was designed to function like a light sabre and dark armour which protected you from all but the most severe light saber hits...ahhh power gaming at its best dont ya think?

I always play a goodie-two-shoes in RPG's. Maybe it's time I reversed roles in KOTOR. ;)

I'll probably play through as a light-sider Jedi first.

I always just end up going around slaughtering innocent people and stealing their money and possesions in RPG's, so in my first run through Star Wars Knights I am going to go along the path of a model jedi. It will be a more weedy, Luke Skywalker, unlikely hero sort of guy, (if appearence is that customisable), with a single green blade, although I am open to build a double blade depending on what happens in the game.

In my second run through I am going to fall to the dark side and just go around being an evil b@$tard!

I'm going to be a Dark Jedi/Bounty Hunter named Drey.

Sorry to tell you this but you can't be a wookie. Only human.
You can have wookies in your party though.

oh well, doesn`t matter, one way or another im still going to destroy the jedi and whoever opposes me, and make them feal my pain. :sithm:

11-11-2002, 12:07 PM
I will definately be a double bladed saber weilding sith...and I think I posted my lost post in the wrong spot..ill paste it here...I was wondering if anyone knew if KotOR will have the old fashion saber style like Dooku uses in EP2 as an option I know it has the standard and double bladed.... would be cool if they gave you the option of trying to learn that style, like make it a little more harder to learn since it isnt practiced as much as much as the standard

My party will contain the most vile people that humanity can produce. We will posion the water supply on many worlds just because we can.

11-16-2002, 04:04 PM
I will make a male Jedi with dual blades. The blades will depend on what attributes the color has on the overall performance. He will be wearing a leather tunic, similar to Anakin's if possible, and will have short brown hair. He'll stay true to the lightside and look out for his girlfriend (forgot her name) above himself.

I'm a man. I'm sorry to let you know that we don't swoon.
We'll pant and drool though.

Well, I haven't visted this forum network for about a year now, and lo and behold my account still works!

ne way I'll probably be a good little boy first and from there work with different combos of characters and classes and generally rip up the game, doing every quest, battle, bar, chat, mini game etc...

If it is anything like Baldur's Gate 2 I will still be playing it for -(however long it's been since BG2 was released) although BG2 did take 250-300 hours the first time through. Plus with mods etc. it should last even longer:)

11-25-2002, 02:24 AM
forgot to say what I will play:o
Maybe a Scout or Bounty Hunter, serious, cool but good humored with a kick ass dark overcoaty thingy, and some stylish Sunglasses if possible:D ]

btw, y can't we edit our posts n e more?

Well my first party will consist of the best and most elite Jedi,law-upbringing type.It will consist of main-human scout,Jedi Sentinel,make girls swoon;secondary-wookie scout,Jedi Consular;third-human scoundrel,Jedi Guardian.

Maybe my second try at the game will consist of the vilest men the galaxy has ever known.However,we aim to topple the Sith,and when we do that,we shall rull the galaxy as fat boy and party and son!

I'll like to be a Jedi first, as always, become one with the force and then try to play like a fallen jedi, with the dark side as my ally.

Also, I like to play as a Bounty Hunter and kick somebody ass.

1st Character- Soldier into a Jedi Guardian(if you havent read the new previews there are 3 types of Jedi classes, Guardian being the warriors) I would do this for the ultimate fighting machine.

2nd Character- Same as above except Dark Jedi.
3rd 4th 5th and so on- Start mixing things up with the scouts and scoundrels, maybe try to go through without the saber which I doubt will be possible. Basically try to do any combo I can think of and if I get bored enough maybe even a female character. I think thats it.

My character is going to become a member of the dark side who trusts know one but the power of the dark side of the force . He dosn't even trust his party members and likes to work alone as much as possable . :fett: '' The Dark Side clouds everything .''::
