Would be pretty damned embarrassing if you're secretly homosexual and when you get turned on by some guy it turns pinkish-red and then you have to go all like "Ahahaha, uh, no that's the colour for uh, friendship, yeah."

Or if it turns green when you see somebody having something bigger than you.

Or if it turns icky brownish-yellowish-vomitcoloured if you're talking to someone you think is goddamned ugly.

If dropped into a nest of Gundarks or surrounded by sith, a brilliant, cobalt radiance would flash into existence.

Haha, that is a good one. I like that idea.

^ Other that that suggestion, I really don't think that there should be anymore lightsaber colors. Lets stick with the originals, is what I have to say.

I don't want them to add new saber colors, I want them to take them out! To me the only real saber colors are blue, green, red and and I'll let Mace Windu slide with purple because c'mon, its Samuel L Jackson.

Puce I'd like to have a really vile looking one on at least one play through.

Actually, lately I've been thinking more about lightsaber shapes. Especially in light of the TFU game. What I'd really like to see would be a lightsaber more modeled on a more thin bladed sword like a rapier or a foil than a normal traditional lightsaber, like how modern fencers use. It would be quicker, but more for deflecting attacks to the side than meeting them head on.

I'd also like to see a lightsaber with a more scimatar-like grip, like it describes as Darth Bane inheriting at the sith academy on Korriban.

The idea of a set like tonfa's (police billy clubs would be a lot of fun to me as well), or energy whips like that ex-Jedi uses in Darth Bane also would be really cool to play as well.

^What he/she said...

...only with better-looking K1 and TSL colors (like orange actually LOOKS orange, instead of red-orange), because invisible sabers don't look too good...

...and Guard Shotos/Lighttonfas...

...and Lightsaber canes/staffs/Lightspears...(my personal favorite so far)

...and Fiber-cord linked lightsabers/Lightnunchaku...

...and the CANON Forked Lightsaber...

...and the mod-inspired Forksabers to make them canon...

...and finally, Training Lightsabers if the game features Jedi Younglings/Jedi Padawans in training.

I've liked Yellow since playing KotOR, and since they've allowed it in comics it's more acceptable, but thats just in my world/games. I still maintain the film canon as Blue, green, Red

[girl]Ohh, pretty poodle pink! Just like my nail polish OMFG. Girl jedi's should have their fingernail polish match their lightsaber color! Wait, why am I talking about stupud Star Wars, that's for boys![/girl]

I'd think a black saber would be spiffy. Kinda like if jet could glow. Also white, because I'm all for an archetypal jedi.

Canon is canon. "EU canon" if it isn't Star Wars canon is a fairly silly concept.

I don't know if the other lightsaber colors are canon, but I suspect they are at this point. Green/blue only never really made sense to me anyway. I find that concept silly... 'sif the only crystals out there would be blue and green. PFFT.

The question isn't whether they carry them, it's whether that publication is considered Star Wars canon.

True. But since this is a KOTOR forum, and it appears in one of the KOTOR games, shouldn't everyone here assume it's canon?

Why should we assume something is canon just because this is a KotOR forum...? Just because something appears in a video game doesn't make it canon. It might be, but that's kind of a flawed argument.

I hope this isnt construed as continuing the 'canon fight', but:

Legacy is definately Canon - all the issues have 'Lucas Books' on the back, and Legacy Era things pop up in the RPG books, and the collectable miniatures game, so i'd say that it's definately canon.

So, by extension, and including what Corinthian mentioned regarding Corran Horn, Silver lightsaber crystals are definately official.

I really don't care if they were to put in extra colors, but please do NOT use black. That would look just awful! Plus there is no such thing is a black light. I still to this day do NOT understand the obsession some people have with the idea of a black lightsaber.

It must be something related to the attraction people have with challenging the most basic physic laws.

Yup, because EVERYONE knows that if you break and defeat one of the universe's laws, you'll gain the ability to bend and twist reality! That would be awesome!

Back on topic: I think it would be a good idea to have the new colors as lighter and slightly darker versions of the standard, common colors. We already have Veridian, Orange(or Gold;REAL Gold, not Bronze Orange) and Cyan, now we just need Pink, a Pale-ish Yellow and Blue, Crimson/Burgundy, Peach...

Off-Topic: Although I would prefer if they had almost every variant of a Light[place melee weapon here] (excluding Axes and Blunts;they should feature these normal melee weapons more) imaginable, canon or to be canon. I always wanted an energy-bladed polearm.

Well we really don't need a new color, since all of the essential ones have been covered already (i.e. blue, green, violet, red, etc.) It would be nice to be able to get a "Silver" lightsaber more often than not in the 3rd installment.

I thought Viridian was silvery-green. There was Cyan, though, which is similar to turquoise.

There's no such thing as lightsabers either. I think a black lightsaber could look really good, if it was iridescent like the rest of them.

As for breaking the laws of physics, lightsabers do that in and of themselves so I have no problem suspending belief for a black light as well. The only criterion I would have is that the wielder be seriously badass.
