Darth Dracon;4322701Would you play a game that involved you in the creation of the Jedi Order out of the many different disciplines of Force followers? Say, something like uniting the followers of Ashla and the Order of Dai Bendu?

I've been interested in something like that for years. Well, I never thought of a game, but anything's better than nothing. There would be no lightsabers, though. That would be a shame. Well, I always had this theory...but never mind that. ;)

Darth Dracon;4322701Well. I see. So most of you would not play a Great Sith War prequel. Ok cool. I can totally respect that. Would you play a game that involved you in the creation of the Jedi Order out of the many different disciplines of Force followers? Say, something like uniting the followers of Ashla and the Order of Dai Bendu? I apologize to you all. I am just such a Force nut that any chance I get to play a Jedi or Sith really appeals to me and I am always interested in playing different characters from different time periods, regardless of whether or not the history is known or canonized. I feel that the best way to gain perspective of what that character went through was to see the events unfold through their own eyes. That's pretty cool and exciting to me. That's why I'd like to play as Cay or Ulic Qel-Droma, Exar Kun, Marka Ragnos, Odan-Ur or any Jedi/Sith of that past, present or future. Long Live Star Wars.:bows:

Well, like JCarter I like the premise of a game that essentially deals with the first formation of the Jedi Order, but as a standalone game it would never work.

No lightsabers, and not enough members of "Joe Public" that are interested enough in Star Wars that they'd play a game that pre-dates the films by so many millenia. However, saying that, it would certainly be a damned good idea for a KoTOR/TSL mod. Difficult to do, but it might be worth it if a good team worked on such a project.

Hey JCarter, what's this theory of yours? I'm guessing it's about Lightsabers and an earlier timeframe of their existence.....

Yeah, it probably would never sell. Which is why I never thought of it as a game. Only people that obsessed with Star Wars buy any of the books anyway. ;)

Well, I had idea a while back about the first Jedi (before there were Jedi) inventing the lightsaber after having a vision. But it was lost with his death. See, the main thing is that they probably had the technology, but no one could piece it together until thousands of years later.

Huh, interesting theory. I would think that they would be limited in technology as the hyperdrive was not even invented by the formation of the Jedi Order. (See Great Hyperspace War) That's why the early Jedi and Sith had bladed weapons. I like your idea, though, of one Jedi tinkinering with the technology at hand to try and build a lightsaber. It's cool. How would that play with the Jedi inventing the lightsaber with the corded battery pack many millennia later and the eventual technological upgrade to the self contained lightsaber?

Huh, interesting theory. I like the idea of a Jedi tinkering with the available technology to try and build a lightsaber. Perhaps this one Jedi could lay the blue prints down, and then it be lost to time until some jedi, thousands of years later rediscovered it and presented the plans to the Jedi council after first constructing one. I would just wonder how that would impact the actual first builders of the battery powered wired lightsaber and the eventual upgrade to the self contained lightsaber many millennia later? Very cool train of thinking. A good idea, JCarter.

Two things. Mr. Darth Dracon, no need to apologize. You have every right to say what you like or dislike in a topic like the one presented in this thread, which is entirely opinion-based. Just bear in mind the rest of the contributors have the very same right and are more than willing to make use of it. As I have seen, there is no objection to your desire to play a prequel game to KOTOR, the main issue is most of us differ as to the characters, storyline, and time-period it should be set in. Perhaps we may be a little harsh on our posts, but it is not out of mere disagrement or out-right rudeness, but as a result of playing around here for a while!! I mean, the forums are a pretty heated and passionate arena, and that tends to get to us one way or another; nothing personal. :nodding: And second, I am not really sure where I heard this, I'll check my sources just as I end up writing this post, but as I recall lightsabers were not created by or for Jedi. In the beggining, Jedi Knights used metal blades and batons, and judging by the use of such infused with the power of the Dark Side in the Dark Lords of the Sith's early history, I guess such weapons were the main battle resource available to Force-users at the time. Furthermore, the referenced legendary weapons found in-game are melee vibroblades, and not lightsabers, a fact which supports this proposal. As I recall, in the earlier references to Ajunta Pall and the original Dark Jedi there is no presence of lightsabers whatsoever. The only source I have seen a lightsaber in is Jedi Vs Sith: The Official Guide To The Force, which portrays Ajunta with a Great Hyperspace War version of the lightsaber attached to his waist. This image, however, seems to me like an error, which is not new in graphic representations, as other works never put a lightsaber on-scene during the time-period. This, however, presents a question, as how could the Sith Lords know how to create lightsabers and develop their characteristic red focusing crystals if the weapon was invented after their founders were exiled from Galactic Space? I suppose it may be a small continuity error, or perhaps just a mistaken over-analisis on my part. Regardless, the lightsaber, as I recall reading somewhere, was a originaly a mining tool, which may have some sense, since the focusing crystals and the places where they are mined from are usually influenced by The Force.

Thank you JediJax. You are truly a Gentleperson and Scholar. I appreciate your statement. And I do believe that you are correct about the weaponry of the ancient Sith and Jedi. The only source material that I have come across are pictures of ancient Jedi (circa Grat Hyperspace War) with a lightsaber that had a wire/cable attached to a battery pack unit attavhed to the Jedi's utility belt. This was the earliest source of power for the Lightsaber until someone developed the self-contained power cell found in modern lightsabers, probably sometime after or before the Empress Teta System wars, during the Golden Age of the Sith. I could be wrong with the timeframe, and if I am, I would greatly appreciate being directed to the accurate information. Anyway, you are correct. There are stories of the legendary founder and the first Knights of the Jedi Order having thier bladed weapons infused with the power of the Light Side just as later Jedi and Dark Jedi (see Ajunta Pall) did.

Well, we may not know how far back it actually was when the lightsaber was invented. Look at me. The only reason I didn't buy KOTOR originally was because I wasn't interested in throwing rocks at sith. I wanted to shoot them, and use my lightsaber against them.

Well, the histories I have read do not elaborate on the precise time that the powered and self contained lightsabers came into play, respectively. I do remember Odan-Ur using a battery pack powered lightsaber on his mission to the Empress Teta System, though. After that he lived about 1000 years and became the statesman and Grandmaster of the Jedi Order. By the time of the rise of Exar Kun, self contained lightsabers were widely used.

Never heard that it was a mining tool...I thought the whole premise of the lightsaber was that only Jedi used them because only Jedi knew how to build them.
