A new character.

The whining that goes on with the previous 2 games about ease with higher levels, can you imagine the bitching that would happen if you could force storm everything in your path from the opening level?

& personaly, I don't want anymore of these memory wipes, lost connection to the force stories. Just want to start out as a fresh level 1 Padawan.

I hope that we get to start with a new character, otherwise it just wouldn't seem like a KotOR game, but I do hope that either Revan or the Exile or both are included in the next game, whether they be in your party, or as a regular NPC.

I doubt you will even meet with Revan or the Exile in k3: since the player could chose the sex and the appearance in K1 and k2, defining that would kill the game for many of us. While Revan's appearance would not be too much of a problem the voice would be... However, I believe you will hear of them a lot.

I think that we will hear from them quite a bit via previous party members, datapads, etc. I will be surprised if we are not contacted by Kreia through the Force at least once.

What about for Revan Darksiders? There's not a whole lot of memebers to go around in that instance. . .

I would love to hear from Kriea, though I doubt we will since her final thoughts on the force weren't very encouraging about a return.

I think a new PC would be most appropriate.

However, I think Revan and the Exile ought to show up as NPCs at least once, despite the various difficulty of having to fit them in - which could be as complex as using a BG 2-style import, or as simple as setting them up like in Kotr 2.

Imagine the final fight... you, new-maxed-out player, Revan AND the Exile all kicking whatever at the same time! That would be sooo cool.

Or worse, if you play light side and they are darkside (or vise verse) having to fight both...

Plus think of the fun you could have watching the various male/female Light/Dark interplay between Revan and the Exile!

However, practicality rears it's ugly head. I feel it unlikely to see any such introduction, but it would be nice. It adds continuity to the games.

Case in point: I still haven't got over the shock after my first time through Korriban and running into Reven, as he showed up with duel lightsabres, just like my first Kotr 1 character. After *that* little incident, Exile had to go and have short lie down for a while...

That said, there's no reason you couldn't have one or other as the main character - it would tend to be a little more restrictive in terms of development potentially; but after all, most of the Final Fantasy and genre have you playing a set character, and they don't seem to get many complaints.

Yes they do.
But that's a characteristic of almost every japanese RPG so they are forgiven for that.
KotOR is a western RPG and western RPGs rarely have set characters.

Did you even enjoy TSL then? I couldn't play (or at least enjoy) a game where I disliked the player character...

I have only beaten it once, and the only other time I have played it was with mods, I just didn't like the concept of a random Sith Lord finding an exiled Jedi and reconnecting his/her connection to the force.. Just my opinion anyway.

I think it will be a new character, trained by Bastilla (Jolee?) or some others. By investigating ruins, you make a choice: Revan=evil and lead the Sith, thus the Exile is being a general on the frontlines, or saying Revan is good, thus making the Exile the leade of the true Sith, and Revan a general in the Frontlines.
That's what i think. In this way, the Exile and Revan return, and one of them could join your party, since your (obviously) are going to join the rage of battle.

K3 without the exile, would lead me to hunt down Obsidians design team. With the way K2 ended it would only make sense to finish off the current story arc before moving onto a new character..maybe instead of putting out a full fledged game Obsidian can make correct, the mistakes of the past and release a K2.5..thats right expansion pack. 2-3 worlds, and a wrap up of what happens to the exile before K3 happens. Flying off into the cosmos, ticked me off...we know what happens to the crew but the ending still seems alittle..well...unended for lack of a better word.

Hmmm

An expansion pack would make sense....
Adding the droid factory, the council chambers...and more unlockable stuff:
A friend of mine found a program that can unlock al the voice-records in the game. It also features Darthj Sion saying something like: "You failed me again...I will kill the Exile myself! I'm going to Nar Shaddaa!!"
never saw him there.......

Stuff like this coul be unlocked, etc.

It would be nice to start off as a padawan, and then later in the game having Revan and/or the Exile join you in your party.

I concur.
Mandalore, HK, and T3 have been in KOTOR from the start. It would be a shame if they were kicked out.

I, personally, would not mind if it is Revan, the Exile, or a new character. However, I do think it would be smart to continue the unfinished story as the Exile, as it left alot unexplained. If they could find a way to have Revan in the game it would be great. But they definitely need to explain what happens with the Exile and Revan by playing as them, having them in your party communicating with them, or someone just telling you.


By the way everybody, I'm new. So, Hello!

Welcome to the forums.


I think Revan and the Exile have to appear in some sort of cameo role, if not a party member.

New Character

I think it should be a new character like a padawan who survived the destruction of the danttoine academy and goes in search of revan,bastila, and exile.
or master vandar sensed something was wrong and sent the padawan away for preperation.

i also think you should have a choice of rebuilding the jedi academy or joining the sith that are in hiding.

New PC.

"When I offered to go with him... he laughed. Then, he attacked me. Revan, at his full power, was more than a match for me. The battle was over quickly - and then he made sure I couldn't follow him, even if I wanted to. He left me there, a broken wreck on the Outer Rim.I vowed that I would never bend knee to another. Any alliances I entered in to would be ones where I was an equal..."

This makes me sure that you won't be using Revan in the next game. I think he/she'll be back, in robes, non specific alignment, and you kill the bugger near the end. He/she decides to test you to see if you're strong enough to take on whatever is the final fight/s.
