Ok, so I think we've all heard the rumors about KotOR3 that MIGHT be in development. If not, search it on google, anyways I want to get your guys' opinions on what you think it should be about, and if it should be an MMO. My opinion? Well, I think online should be an optional thing where you would choose whether or not to take your character into the net to play, or just to play regular. Now for the storyline, well I have a couple ideals. 1.) Darth Revan returns 10 to 15 years after TSL and you dark side or light side at the create character, so it would make sense since in KotOR you could choose light or dark side. And depending on your choice, light side - Stop the Sith. dark side - Kill the current Sith Lord, and take his place. 2.) As a change of pace, maybe start as the Sith Lord's apprentice, and he sends you on a mission and loose your memory. Then you are found by an ex-Jedi Master who has taken onto the neutral side and teaches you. Then you choose dark,light,or neutral. light side - Stop the Sith. dark side - Join the Sith and kill you old master and become Sith Lord. neutral side - destroy both the Jedi and Sith (My personal favorite :lol:) Well those are a couple thoughts, my personal favorite is number two. post your thoughts!
Uh... this has been extensively discussed in a thread with about the very same name... you should take a look at it, since it has more than 43 000 viewings and more than eight pages of posts. As for your considerations, most of the contributors have already expressed their dislike of a MMORPG sequel, mainly because of storyline deficiencies and technological or economic limitations (monthly or anual fees, servers, etc.) Now, as for your storyline, you seem to have forgotten two things. First, Revan fought in the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War; if you want him back after 10 or 15 years from TSL's ending, just do the math... Secondly, he is not Darth Revan, the canonical ending of the game is lightsided, so, unless he turns "again" to the Dark Side, which would be a lame thing... he is no Sith... he never was, actually, but let's not get technical. :lol: I also fail to see the change of pace in your second proposed background for the main character, since it is exactly what most games have dealt with, just take a look at The Force Unleashed and KOTOR, both are the embodiments of your proposal. This is why I loved TSL so much, as well as the KOTOR comic books and the New Jedi Order novels, for they strayed far from the very same, stereotyped frame. Take a look at that other thread which deals on this matter, you may find some fresh and interesting ideas on the subject... well... at least some, I hope, for if I remember, it had more absurd rants than serious posts. :uhm:
Knights of the Old Republic doesn't have many neutral side powers, I'm saying they should make a whole new list of powers, and have neutral sided scripts for the main character, I can't think of any other games that have the light, dark, and neutral sides though, mostly because they don't have the neutral.
How about this for a REALLY crazy KOTOR 3 idea - your character is a droid! :)
You can be HK-47, the evil assassin droid, or a 'nice' protocol droid, or even a neutral T3-M4 fitted with a vocabulator so he can speak Basic. You are a 'support character' and you have to win the game by 'manipulating' the 'intellectually challenged' hero/heroine into doing what you want! :)
HK-47 can progress to be an unstoppable killing machine by discovering how to make himself immune to the Force, so not even Jedi can kill him. He can have a sick Dark Side ending to the game where he starts a galaxy-wide droid revolution, and exterminates every 'meatbag' in the galaxy so the droids become the new civilisation!
The protocol droid can achieve 'full sentience', become a 'God' to primitive creatures and acquire an army of loyal followers (like C-3PO with the Ewoks in RotJ) and even teach himself to use the Force(!) to be the first Jedi droid!
T3-M4 can become extremely skilled and stealthy, and upgrade himself to the point where he can even FLY, like R2-D2 did in Attack of the Clones!
I'll be honest, the HK-47 part of Spike's post has to be my favorite K3 idea I've read/heard (I've never taken the time to read the other thread's posts, I might do that soon).
Haha! that would be very interesting, at least you know how to have fun with this un-like that guy up 2nd post you goes into 'logic' instead of having fun!:beer:
Jedijax is right. This is very similiar to every other KOTOR III thread there has been. I have some questions: 1.) Why 10 -15 years after Kotor? Would 3-5 years not be more appropriate in-game? 10-15 years...well, a lot can happen in that time frame. 2.) Uh....I assume that you meant that a NEW PC would be the main and not the Exile or Revan, right? Just making sure... 3.) Did ya not read any of Fyurii's, JCarter's, Revan91's, Jedijax's, Darth Darcon's, Inyri Forge's or anybody else's comments on this particular subject? There's no other point but to finish a trilogy. Revan must come full circle and the Exile must make an appearance. The stories must be finished and all loose ends tied up. (Carter...shut up about Kae... just joking)
The most obvious storyline would be to take the role of a jedi of the order made by the exile's companions who is given a task by Bastila (Now in her 40's - getting Krieaish) and Carth (In his 50s or 60s) to find Revan and the Exile. They join you, and Atton will to if female, but Mira will if male (This is assuming the canonical ending in tsl is lightside.) I'd like Coruscant as a sort of tutorial-Taris level. This would be 10-15 years after Tsl
Darth Dracon;4402248Jedijax is right. This is very similiar to every other KOTOR III thread there has been. I have some questions: 1.) Why 10 -15 years after Kotor?

A new jedi order could have started, and your main character would be one of the jedi, who may have had a troubled history as a war veteran or rogue (Think Nico Bellic).
Sounds interesting, though we would have to eliminate Revan and the Jedi Exile from the equation as powerful main figures, for if Carth is 50ish they both would be about the same age or older, and since Revan abandoned the Sith ways, they would be fighting the so called True Sith in the Unknown Regions, and so they would be much more aged by a decade of war. On the other hand, you are forgetting Kreia's predictions, in which neither Bastila nor Carth figure as builders of the new governing body. It is Aton, Micahl, Brianna, Visas and Mira who give birth to the new incarnation of the Jedi Order. The Jedi Exile is supposed to go and find Revan, and TSL pretty much implies Bastila did the very same. Carth was left behind to strengthen the Army of the Republic, and Mandalore was left behind to strengthen a non-official armada, in case the "unseen threat" ever comes to known space. What I mean is, Canderous would be about 60, Carth 50, BASTILA 40, Revan between 50 and 60... or even older..., The Jedi Exile 50 or 60... see my point? In TSL we are rather decieved by the main character's look, but she should be about 35 or 40 years old to have fought as General in the Mandalorian Wars. A game set about 10 or 15 years after TSL would definitely be too out of synch with the overall storyline, it would not close a cycle, as most of the known characters could not be main figures because of their age and contextual standing in the galaxy. I agree with Dracon's suggestion of a 3 to 5 years time frame. I would even suggest a shorter one, you could even start KOTOR III right after TSL, as the Jedi Exile looks for Revan. :nodding: Oh, and byt the way: "(Carter...shut up about Kae... just joking)" :lol: The ever present mistery of Arren Kae!!
