How about KotOR III history based on KotOR comic series

Hi, this is my first post, Spanish is my first language so excuseme for my bad English...

The KotOR comic series has an interesting history so far, so I want to know what do you think about a KotOR III history based on the comic series history...

The comic's characters like Zane Carrick, Master Lucien or Jarael are very interesting ....

it could be great if you could play the game like Revan, the exile or like Zayne Carrick!

I hope that KotOR III will be a reality, but I want that the series don't end... instead I would prefer that the series continues like the Final Fantasy franchise...

best regards

Even if KOTOR III was going to made (it will never coming out), it's definitely not going to be about the comics. By the way, como estas?

I can see lots of references to the comics, but not tie directly into them.

might be interesting. it probably won't be about the comics, but as prime said, it would be cool if it had lot's of references to it.

I might be fun to see something relating to the Covenant. Even a side quest relating to them or something.

No thanks.

The comic books about Zayne and co. (which I do read and enjoy) are based on the games, which are in turn based on the earlier Tales of the Jedi comic books. That's the way it should be IMHO.

Sure, you can have references to Zayne and his companions in the games, but you can't put the characters in a game, since that would interfere with the writers (of the comic books) creative control over the plot. Doing so is poison to good storytelling in my experience.

Indeed, it would have been easy to write lots and lots of stories about the early days of Revan, exile, Bastila, Malak, Nihilus, Sion, Kreia, Visas, Mical, Canderous... you get the picture. But they didn't do that. They wrote all new characters instead, and so we have Zayne as the protagonist instead of Revan/exile, Jarael as potential love interest instead of Bastila/Carth/whomever, Rohlan as the token Mandalorian instead of Canderous, Camber as the grumpy old dude instead of Jolee/Kreia, etc. That's because the plot is about the characters, and if you put the same characters in too many stories, then you lose the option to let powerful events happen in their lives, since they must be around the way we know them for the stories that are already established at some other point in time (note: this is also the reason why I have low or no expections for the proposed Star Trek movie about young Kirk and Spock).

This means we can have cameos by Carth, Saul Karath, and possibly Malak and Revan in the KotOr comic books during a time when it is already established that significant events in their lives took place and which can therefore be explored in more detail than we've seen before - nothing changes, we just see more detail, and so the characters are who they must be. For example, I would would consider it disastrous to have Bastila in the comic book, because she needs to be fairly naive and inexperienced for the plot of KotOR1, which a story where she faces significant choices at an earlier point in her life would interfere with.

In short:
For Zayne and company: read the comic books.
For Revan and exile: play the games.

This is what I want but for the game!
I mean I don't want the series finish instead I want more and more KotOr ... and stories about the characters sounds good to me.

What I want is only the possibility that I can play a character like Zayne Carrick because he is not a super jedi like revan or Exile and this could be interesting at least for me, but based on the comic Zayne or his friend don't need to meet the game's characters...

Exactly, Revan possibly never meet Zayne, same for the Exile. But he is important to the game story so I think is a good idea to talk about him or his friends in the game at least... but really I like to see an option in the game or a game completely apart for Zayne and his friends... maybe this could be the beginning of a KotOR series like Final Fantasy

Best regards.
