Robes for Korriban Sith Students



Our benevolent overlord returns with an interesting addition to the planet Korriban. Remember the Sith Academy? Of course you do; it was in both games. ;) Well, it's only in the first Knights of the Old Republic game that you get to become a student of the academy, and more importantly (at least for this mod), meet other students. Currently, all of the students of the academy wear those uniforms that Sith officers wear. It's a little odd, because they're not supposed to be just normal Sith officers, but Dark Jedi. Even the two masters of the academy, Uthar Wyn and Yuthura Ban, wear regular uniforms.

So Shem has decided to give all of the students Dark Jedi robes. It's a nice addition, I think, and it means you might get a few extra robes for your party, and a few other nice items. But I'll explain that later. ;) In addition to having robes, some of the NPCs' appearances have been altered, to avoid repetition. Also, Master Uthar and his former master, Jorak Uln, each wear special armor.

Now, as if that wasn't enough, there are a few surprises here and there. But if you haven't played the game yet, you might want to stop reading. ;)

The main objective for Korriban is to find the Star Map in the Tomb of Naga Sadow. To get to that tomb, you have to gain enough prestige to be chosen to take the final trials. As I alluded to above, you'll be able to take some those Dark Jedi robes from for yourself; that's because you'll have the opportunity to terminate hostilities with some of your competition before you enter the tomb, and again afterwards. There are several different endings for Korriban, depending on your choices in the Tomb of Naga Sadow. For best results (i.e. to get the most items) you should kill both Uthar and Yuthura. This will throw the Sith academy into a rebellion, and all of the students and teachers will become hostile. This is both a light side and dark side option, so you don't have to worry about that. But if you want some extra LS points, befriending Yuthura and helping her kill Uthar, then bringing her back to the light will get the same results, though you won't get any of Yuthura's items.

OK, you can keep reading now if you stopped before. ;)

This mod utilizes the TSL patcher to make the necessary appearance.2da changes, and there is an extra file included that will make the mod compatible with T7nowehere's Weapons of the Old Republic, for those of you who have that mod. The mod is also compatible with Prime's Jedi Model mod, so no worries if you have that as well. Enjoy the new Sith academy!

Title: Robes for Korriban Sith Students
Author: Shem
Date Released: 4/28/08

Description: Ever notice that the Sith Academy students on Korriban worn Sith officer uniforms?  Didn’t you think they should have worn Dark Jedi robes instead?  If you agree with me, this mod gives you that change.

I also felt that since Uthar was the leader of the academy, he should have some special armor for himself.  He now wears the Sith Apprentice style armor robes.  Since Jorak was once the leader before Uthar overthrew him, he has his own set too.

There are some hidden goodies to get and some extra challenges to overcome in addition to the changes put into this mod.  One of those changes will be extra Sith students and teachers will pull out lightsabers if the rebellion plot is triggered based on your actions with Uthar and Yuthura when completing the trial given to you at Naga Sadow’s tomb.

I also took into account that many people like T7nowhere's Weapons of the Old Republic Mod (WotOR), so I made a compatibilty UTC file for Yuthura Ban; use that UTC file only if you are using T7's mod.  For those who are using Prime’s Jedi Model mod, this mod is designed so it will not conflict with it.

This mod will require you to have a saved game before you land on Korriban.  That way you will get all the benefits that is mod will provide.

Special Thanks: I would like to thank JCarter426 and Emperor Devon for beta testing.

Instructions: Use the TSL Patcher make the changes to the appearance.2da file and put the rest of the files manually into the override folder and enjoy the mod!
