Well guys, just found two new awesome accoaldes for Revan on drewkarpyshyn.com big grin

"unlike Revan or Bane, he isnít one of the most powerful individuals in the universe."
Revan and Bane are canonically recognized among the best in the mythos.

"As much as I loved writing about all-powerful Sith and Jedi..."
This is obviously referring to Revan and Darth Bane.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/all-powerful

Along with this, I have added numerous more quotes to my Revan Respect Thread, so check it out once you have the chance.

Can you point out the page number of this statement in KoTOR-CG?

Darth Revan was one of the most powerful Sith Lords in galactic history.

I found the image of this:

among my surfing of Revan stuff over the summer. By now where I found it is long lost. It said the quote was from KotORCG, however it never specified the page number. Why?

Possibly, I advice you to thoroughly check the sourcebook.

Okay, I'll check it out.

For now I'll take your word for it until I get home, and I must admit I am pretty bummed. Remind me never to go onto another revan fan site again for accurate quotes, even if they look real.

However, the "unlike Revan or Bane, he isnít one of the most powerful individuals in the universe" is more impressive then the previous, so I won't be crying about it.

Ooh, that's sneaky, but looking back at the image the first line of text *is* slightly different.

Damn, thats impressive editing. But yes, I checked it and the quote does start at "At the height..." I'm going to give probs though to the dumbass who made it, because it fooled us all for now a couple months.

I will be doing a simple calculation on Revan's speed via the quote "AS MEETRA AND SCOURGE BATTLED the Guard, Revan charged toward the Emperor. His opponent stood perfectly still, focusing and channeling his power. At the last possible instant, the Emperor unleashed a wave of energy that swept Revan off his feet and sent him flying backward."

The size of the throne room Revan covered is "at least forty meters long" where the the throne chair was "at the far end."

Though it is unknown the time in which Revan completed the charge alone, the battle itself is said to be: " of only a few seconds."
The battle consisted of the following:
1. Revan charging the Sith Emperor (what we are calculating)
2. The Sith Emperor pushing Revan all the way backwards
3. Revan now moving more slowly towards the Emperor
4. Revan unleashing a telekinetic blast that through Vitiate back
5. Vitiate unleashing 4 lightning bolt attacks, all Revan blocked/dodged
6. Vitiate summoning a FLS while Revan calculates his options
7. Revan being blasted by lightning as Vitiate "pours" it into him
8. T3 spraying The Sith Emperor with a flamethrower
9. The Emperor blasting T3 to pieces
10. The Emperor walking over to Revan's lightsaber, picking it up, and going to strike down

The term "few" applies to 3, so ALL of that happened in 3 seconds. That being said, Revan charging Vitiate would be a complete minimum of .4 seconds. However, keep in mind at the end of the battle Revan was quite far away from Vitiate, and Vitiate walked over to Revan with "calm, purposeful steps." This alone, with all generosity, would have to be at least a second, especially by how it is said he "calmly" picked up Revan's blade. Vitiate had to of at least covered several meters in this time.

So Revan's charge would have to had been in a complete minimum of .33 seconds, right?. Nah. Keep in note that the time spent with T3 moving, attacking, Vitiate protecting himself, and the destruction of T3 had to take at least a second if the debris even had time to land. We seen in KotOR cut scenes how fast T3 moves, and it is no faster then a walking pace of a human, aka Vitiate calmly walking to Revan. I'm labeling this with a second as well. No objections? Good.

With what we have left, we have:
1. Revan charging the Sith Emperor (what we are calculating)
2. The Sith Emperor pushing Revan all the way backwards
3. Revan now moving more slowly towards the Emperor
4. Revan unleashing a telekinetic blast that through Vitiate back
5. Vitiate unleashing 4 lightning bolt attacks, all Revan blocked/dodged
6. Vitiate summoning a FLS while Revan calculates his options
7. Revan being blasted by lightning as Vitiate "pours" it into him

That is still A LOT of events that occurred in a matter of literally one second, since we already took off the two seconds via the events above. And now let's be honest with each other, Vitiate summoning that FLS, and then literally being said to have continued to "pour" Revan with lightning is with the complete minimum a half a second, and I am being extremely generous here. With that being said, and dividing the other parts nearly evenly (however some tweaking) because I am just that generous, Revan would have had to of covered that ground in .085 seconds.

Covering 120 feet in .085 seconds equates to 430.30 m/s. This time is actually no where near "ridiculous" as far as high-tier calculations go. Darth Bane's speed feet was recorded actually quite higher then such, then again it is probably the greatest speed feat in the mythos. Regardless, around 430m/s is incredibly fast, and hopefully will give Revan some more respect.

Is English your first language?

edit: In fact, you know what, brah? Go ahead. Let's make "few" definitively equal one second, because we're already arbitrarily assigning certitude to a span of time indicated by a synonym. Tell Jon Snow more about how Vitiate calmly walked up to Revan in one-tenth of a second.

Why?

"a few" is technically equal to 2 or 3. Our society today no longer follows the official definition, same going for "a couple. However I'm not going to ignore it just because we as a community are wrong.

Prove it.

And then tell Jon Snow why it makes more sense to select "three" over "two" or "one," let alone the much more commonly used and contextually sensible "small number" (sometimes colloquially thought of as "not many") leading off the very definition you provided.

So is your contention that Drew Karpyshyn probably shares your brand of supposed linguistic archaism, or are you drawing a line in the sand and deliberately misinterpreting him based on principle?

Because the generation population says its 3.

I don't give a damn what he actually mean't, I just give a damn about what ended up on the paper. If you internally think the answer is 35 but you write 8 on your paper, the professor won't give a damn about your 35.

A few is an indefinite amount, Ant. It can be more or less than 3.
