Brotherhood of Shadow

brotherhood_of_shadow_mod.zip —


One thing I have noticed during my time on staff here at FileFront, a lot of people here really crave new dialogue for characters and even as far as having a new storyline added to either Knights of the Old Republic game. Well, if you are craving that personally, your patience has paid off.

Silveredge9 returns to the modding scene with the biggest and greatest mod he’s ever assembled for the first Knights of the Old Republic game. The author also wanted his mod up as soon as possible, so I haven’t had the chance to play with it yet. I can tell you from what I see by looking at the file contents of this mod that the story explores Revan’s past from the time Revan and Malak join the Mandalorian Wars to Malak’s betrayal of Revan in depth. In fact, there is a female Sith named Matilda that is from Revan’s past before Bastila’s group of Jedi invaded Revan’s flagship while Malak opened fired on the ship to take the mantle of Dark Lord from his master. Well, this Matilda will join your party after the Leviathan since there will be a party member slot open. How that plays out on the Rakatan Temple when Bastila can rejoin your party depending on the choice you make is beyond me since I yet to try this out.

The Jedi Council members on Dantooine have dark side looks to them and this will play into the storyline and even start a fight. This will include Master Vandar and I hope the author did not put flurry or critical strike as special attacks since the Vandar model does not have animations for those attacks so would look like he’s frozen in carbonite if those were tried to be used. It does however have the power attack.

The Patterned Jedi Robes the author released well over a year ago has been updated and is include with this release. The original version was made just for females and this mod will include male robes to go along with it. For those who have been waiting and hoping for male robes, they’re here with this mod.

There are so many new items with this mod that you’re in for a treat with just that. Some more good news is this mod does use the TSL Patcher for easy installation and .2da file merging/patching that is necessary for those without modding skills. There are a ton of screenshots to look at to get a visual of what to expect. I wish I could tell you more, but then again it’s probably better that I don’t so there is some surprise elements left to check out on your own. Let the massive download count begin! :D

Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.


Edit: be sure to grab the latest updated bug fixes from here with the 1.07 Patch. http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Brotherhood_of_Shadow;86266
