i would like a big cinematic at the beginning of the game after you create your character. it would show revan leading mandalorian troops alongside Canderous against the sith and it ends with Revans death and the narrator of the cinematic would be
1) Your first party member and mentor type character
2)And would tell how the Exile had died just a few weeks before Revan.

to me this would appease the people who want to see Revan in the game and avoid having him as an actual character and would also set the stage for a new character to take up the fight against the sith.

Killing off Revan and the Exile would be a massive anti-climax, if they're just conveniently killed off in the background during the set-up for KotOR3. If that happens, then what was the point of letting the Exile follow in Revan's footsteps during KotOR2? It would have been much easier to just say that Revan was dead and be done with it.

Not that I mind seeing either or both of them die in KotOR3, but if it is to be, then it has to be done as part of the plot development, and not to just get rid of them. It will be very disappointing and pitiful storytelling, if the protagonists of the previous games are just discarded like that - they have far too much plot potential. Especially Revan needs to appear again. We've been searching for him for an entire game now. To just find him dead would not be satisfying.

I'd like for both Exile and Revan make an appearance late in KotOR3 and even be potentially playable as temporary companions. Neither should be the protagonist, however. The game begins at level 1 and builds from there, and then only way you could do that for either of them is to do yet more amnesia or convenient "fall from power", which has now been done twice in as many games. No, I'll take a new young jedi, thank you very much.

Ok, I love making up long speeches about K3 in my head, so now Im going to write one down.

How about you start as a new character, perhapse a jedi historian(at level 1, of course) looking for answers about Revan and the Exile. Then you spend the rest of the game following Revans path throughout the unknown regions, always finding traces of him on each planet. Finally, you find the base of the true sith, only to find that Revan and the exile have been killed / captured. Then it is your turn to defeat the enemy that revan and the exile died trying to destroy.

Just a cool idea, sorry if you guys dont like it.

There has to be a new character, lol, or it wouldnt make any sense.

Start as a nonjedi (they're cooler, lol) and advance to either a nonjedi prestige class (rly cool lolz) or a jedi prestige class (because why advance to a regular one, you're the hero of [whatever])

Oh, and to set up the game, it could be in a prologue/fresh start of game where you take a test and it would have various answers (over plot events? whatever.) and with some 'premade' ones (in case you dont want to answer the questions, but you can look them over if you wish)

However, something tells me that whichever body of developers that'll develop KOTOR III (3) will ignore these suggestions, lolz.

Exile was my favorite, hands down. I just don't understand why people goggle over Revan, I mean, he/she's got a specific name, whereas the Exile is more general, which allows for more of a RPing experience (I think).

My thoughts exactly, Danny. However, it's gotta be a new character because K3 won't be able to detect what your character looked like from K1 and K2!

...Although maybe, a Dark Revan would wear his/her original robes and mask...but that would limit possibilities for customization...

EDIT: In any case, K3 had better let us explore the Unknown Regions, or I'll kill myself. There are enough mentions of how Revan entered the Unknown regions, looking for something, to make me really want to explore for myself.

I'd much rather be someone else who meets Revan, than being Revan him/herself.

Revan.

They hinted at it (him leaving to beyond the Outer Rim) in KOTOR II.

Well, at the end of K2 Kreia told the Exile to go to the Unknown Regions to find where Revan was, so I find it more likely that you would be the exile, looking for Revan, in the Unknown Regions.

Exclamation My opinion, in greater detail

Revan is cool, Exile is ok, but I don't want a lame plot excuse for Revan or the Exile starting at level 1, so I want a new character. And I also want to see Revan, since it kind of goes without saying that he is needed for the plot and whole mystery of the True Sith ect.

New character should start in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant as a new Jedi Apprentice in the Order which was founded by members of the TSL party (Visas, Disciple/Handmaiden ect) since the events of KOTOR 2. The player would take some type of history exam in which the player would set the endings and genders for the previous chracters.

I wouldn't mind Exile being in KOTOR 3, but I wouldn't miss him either. If either appear, I'd like events which would allow them to die in/near the end (in non-canon endings).

Eventually, the player would enter the unkown regions as the final test for his/her training in search of Revan and the True Sith. That would happen about 1/3 through the game. Most of the previous party members from KOTORs 1 and 2 would have cameos and/or small roles, just for old time's sake. At least, that's how I would like it.

Probably something else about the True Sith attacking, but I can't think of anything about that.

On a slightly unrelated note, I'd like to see Revan and Exile(in different canon sources)with specified genders, alignments, names (Exile's name and Revan's fake name while he was brainwashed), and appearances in canon, just so I can laugh at the morons who say "OMG L@3VE IT UP 2 TEH PL4YRE!! DN0T 5PE[1FY i7!!"

Slighly unrelated? "morons"? How very troll-ish of you

Do you honestly have that limited of an imagination where you just "have" to have the protaganist and every little bit of information 'defined' in absolutes? Perhaps RPG's aren't quite the genre for you hmm?

In the meantime, lose the flame-namecalling or your stay here will be short lived. You have been warned.

Whoa! That's the best idea I've heard yet! It makes complete sense, and I like the idea of the history exam; that would solve the problem of not knowing how K1 and K2 ended.

The point is that there has to be a canon appearance, alignment, ect, no matter what.

What for? If that was the intention of the game designers in the first place, there wouldn't be a choice. The defeats the purpose of an "RPG" entirely.

Revan and Exile already have canon genders anyway, and that's enough for writers to get by with.

Agreed. I can accept a canon alignment and gender for both Revan and Exile for the sake of reference by authors, but in the games it really is the player's decision.

I want to see both Revan and Exile in KotOR3, but not before I've decided gender, alignment, appearance, and jedi class for them both earlier in the game. They were both my characters, so I should get to decide the specifics, which is fortunately easy to do in a computer game.

A worse problem is how you can do a single plot, where they will appear regardless of their alignments (and so chosen endings) of the previous games, but I do think KotOR2 was specifically set up to overcome that obstacle. I still think and hope that both Revan and Exile will be in KotOR3, but that they will be both have turned to the dark side when you meet them, even if you set them both to light side.

I agree. Besides that, there is no reason to have them return in the first place. Nobody here is writing the story for K3, so you can't just sit here and say "We need Revan to wrap up the story" or "We should start at the Jedi Temple on Courascant" etc.

There are a hundred ways you can wrap up Revan and the Exile's fate without them coming to you and spoon-feeding their knowledge to you. It's too bad the majority of KOTOR fans don't realize this, or simply refuse to accept it.

Don't know, man...I think the Exile was more mysterious than Revan or any other character. Maybe I'm mistaken, but KotOR 2 made him/her a very intriguing character.

I want to be the undead Darth Nihilus, and I also want to hear my responses in his technogurgle voice.

Yeah, I suppose it would be interesting to play as a weakened Nihilus and then recover his full strength and choose whether to use it for a good or an evil cause. Nihilus would, of course have to lose his evil-looking robes and we'd have to pick a face for him (her?).

Just for continuity's sake - I still hope Revan will be the main character in K3, but I do it with a lot less enthusiasm.

Whoever I get to be in KOTOR III I would like a much wider range of choices, and not just human choices. I'm not sure what race I would prefer, but with a wider range of choices, it gives more variety and replayability (is that a word?) Also, why is it that only dark side characters get the cool tattoos? I'd like to be able to pick a head, add a hairstyle and a facial hairstyle, pick my skin color and hair color, and it would be cool to have the option of adding tattoos regardless of alignment. My second choice would be Revan, and I would only want the exile under two conditions, 1) the story is better written, and 2) he gets a chance to somehow make ammends with what Jedi Council members remain, and then to go on a galaxy wide hunt for any and every sith intent on destroying the Jedi. (it would stand to reason that some sith may be satisfied with their own evil circumstances, like Uthar) Eventually you would piss off whatever dark lord is in charge, but whatever happens I think it would have to be a sneak attack by the Sith because the Exile wiped out the previous two dark lords like they were little girls, and they were supposed to be badasses. The Exile should be able to easily best anyone he faces, what fun is there in that?

i would really like to play as revan again. If i cant i at least want revan in the game and all the story arcs resolved. whats the point of setting up this whole off to the fight the true sith if we dont get to see or participate in it. it would make the last 2 games pointless. In regards to whether revan is too powerful now to use. wouldnt he have to be to fight this threat anyway? Plus theres no guaranty a stardard rpg engine will be used so the level thing may not really matter.

When are they gonna announce something its driving me crazy. Im happy to wait for a quality game i just need to know theres actually something to wait for.

For me, Revan, definetly. I don't like the idea of a third god wandering the galaxies and killing every oppositon. Because then there would be no need to do anything if there are two gods defending... *our* galaxy. What if they decide to make K4 after some time? That would be a little too difficult, exept if some of the heroes just happen to die, which seems hard to believe.

So please no new character if you ask me.

Edit: Oh, and I agree with Viper; the exile had a way too much power. A character that would be weak against his/her enemies at first would be nice. Like Revan in K1. That makes you need the party members.


Peace is a lie, there is only passion
through passion, I gain strength,
through strength, I gain power,
through power, I gain victory,
through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

If KOTOR 3 followed the d20 rules more faithfully there would be no need for your character to become an uberjedi for the game to be fun. Anyone remember the original Baldur's Gate? You had a level cap of about 9 in that game and the game was a great success. It's not about the power of the character, but rather what the character does within the bounds of the power he has.

We've seen the story of the fallen hero and the story of the general who turned his back on war. I think that the next character should be a jedi that has not fallen(well not prior to the beginning of the game anyway), but has been raised with the order(whaterver there is left of it) and has been taught the jedi perspective on the lessons to be learned from Revan's fall(and according to canon, redemption). Instead of being a powerful jedi that lost his power, make him a padawan like Bastilla was, with his destiny ahead of him rather than behind.

From there it's a simple matter to introduce events that would send him investigating the unknown regions for whatever trouble Revan and the Exile are sure to stir. And the character doesn't have to be as powerful as either of them. There are more ways to victory and better endings to a story than "go beat the all powerful bad guy."

Who do I want to play as in KOTOR III? Look, I could write an encyclopedia as to why Revan and the Exile cannot and shoud not be the main character/s in a potential KOTOR III game, we have to and should play as a new main character in KOTOR III.

However, I do feel that we as players, should be allowed to choose the genders/alignments of Revan and the Exile, if we can't, then don't make the game, or base the storyline off in a completely new timeline.

My dream is you get to play as Revan and the Exile for a little while towards the end of KOTOR III (which would require you to not only customize their genders/alignments, which is a must, but also their appearences, lightsaber type, lightsaber colour and class) but then what about all the people who haven't played KOTOR and/or KOTOR II? There going to say "What the hell is this?" Add that to the fact that in terms of size, time and costing, it will be difficult to do, hence the term dream, which I said before.

I do have an idea on how to bring back Revan and the Exile in the flesh in KOTOR III (but I'll save that for another time) however, if they do not appear in KOTOR III, I can't say I'll be surprised or disappointed, because I know that bringing back Revan and the Exile in KOTOR III can potentially backfire big time, but if you ask me, killing them both off cheaply behind the scenes just to get rid of them IMO is equally disappointing, so what do you do with them? There are a lot of complications regarding Revan and the Exile with KOTOR III, but when I have more time, I'll talk about my idea and see what the feedback is (although I'm not expecting much positive feedback to be honest).
