USH'S STAR WARS GAME- The Thread of Mysteries

Heck, that could have been an episode title!

Anyhoo, those of you with long memories of the game may remember the old 'Waht is the truth behind the Mausoleum of Demnos?' thread. That's good ol' Takuan and Galder for the bad guys, and really only Marcus and Xeth gor the good guys who had a long run at it (Roan turning up pretty much as the answers were coming, rather than the mystery being built).

Anyway, point is, the central feature of the original campaign- after the Avalar intro- was Kuylen's search for the fabled Masusoleum of Darth Demnos., As we know, there are certain truths to that place that were eventially found (and certain mysteries left unresolved), but on the whole, for a good 18 months of gameplay, the mystery of what exactly the Mausoleum was, what it did and what would happen when people got there no to mention how much of the legend was true) was the great mystery around which the game was built. For a good year, a thread lingered at the top of the SW RP area where people were encouraged to make inspired guesses, some of which were better than others.

Well, the new Campaign is getting well into its stride now- much as its second half doesn't actually exist yet- and I am sure all will be pleased to know that more such nysteries for long term discussion will be returning.

I'll leave it until we get a few more tidbits from the current games, but as time goes by this place will be the discussion area for the prominent veiled plot points of the Second Campaign.

Coming first, incidentally, is the mystery of Kuylen's Legacy. Though now gone, this Legacy is still a function of the campaign plotline, and he gets at least some relevance in every episode- in Episode I, the Dark Siders were trying to find him. In Episode II, the manner of his death was discovered, and Galder was plagued by memories of him all the way (a good excuse to have Mr. Carradine back as a guest star). In Episode III, the legacy shifted to the Jedi, as Roan runs into his family, his people, and awkward reminders about the kind of work he did.

As I say, each episode will have one such relevance to his legacy for one of the major plotlines, Light or Dark; all of this contains clues which allow you to investigate the mystery of his legacy- what kind of man Kuylen was, why he did what he did, and what eventually happened to him? This is of especial relevance to the Dark Siders, because the events between Zeiton and Prias are the missing link that may enable them to find the Archive parts stolen from Avalar, ohhhhh so long ago.

Once Roan finishes digging into the ways of the Boyar in this Episode I'll post that one up.

Coming after that will be some of the varied mysteries that lie in the campaign- like what the bloody hell some of the things you guys keep seeing in your visions are, debates about whether someone has four limbs or six, whether someone should consider dyeing their hair, who was it that killed Roan- and why was it an event connected to Doon succeeding in wiping out the Dark Siders? What is Rand's destiny that gave him the will to survive a mortal wound? What is the voice that brings death? Why has the Force given the onus of saving parts of the Galaxy from starvation to Gallagher rather than, say, Andro, who could do a much better job of protection? What is the choice of paths for the Dark Siders, why won't they agree, and why will the manner of the truth worry them so?

Many of these are hints already received but they get lost in the rough and tumble of things- so this will be a good place to keep them.

Coming soon!

Well, this does sound interesting - especially the Dark Siders bit.

Why can't we co-operate?! Well, at least, co-operate effeciently.

Basically, your motivations do not totally co-incide.

As in - Galder wants revenge and a killing spree, Melkor wants power, Rand wants power too, etc etc?

Kuylen was the leader of the Dark Siders for the big campaign before this one. He was an NPC.

That makes me giggle as people have already suggested that Rianna do that laughing out loud which isn't going to happen! stick out tongue

Yeah, I'm certainly interested in this.....and we don't agree because we simply don't stick out tongue

Current mysteries on the board for everyone in general, be you a Jedi, a Renegade, or a Darkie...

Kuylen - We don't know why he vanished, where he vanished to, why or how he died, who killed him and why, or where his secret vault is.

Gallagher's Dreams - We don't know how he's able to sense Roan and Jelena's plight from such a great distance, even if he is greatly attuned to the Force, or why he was the one to receive visions of the Abbott, being that he got the personal bonus.

Deel Twain - His involvement in the drug-smuggling operation and why Andro found him dead and then suddenly alive is unknown.

The Desert with Jagged Stones - We know nothing of this place, but we've seen it. Rianna fought Battle Droids there in a hallucination, meaning Xeth and his crew are likely to be there hunting the Techno Union, while Jelena has forseen this place too, meaning the Jedi are likely to meet up with the Dark Jedi on this planet.

The Woman with White Hair - Takuan saw her first, Rand has seen her, Marcus' Padawan Vilpa has seen her, Gallador has heard of her; she came to Rand during his resurrection through the Force as a vision, and perhaps she is linked to the Desert with Jagged Stones, or even Kuylen.

The Tentacled Being with Lightsabers - Takuan saw him, Rand or Gallador heard of him vaguely.

Jolanta - Where'd this ***** go?! stick out tongue

The Sanctuary - This will probably be solved soon, but Roan and Jelena are having issues with the Dark Side infecting Cassilis, which has turned a simple battle to retake the Sanctuary into a blood-thirsty massacre of crazed idiots.

I do hope we solve this Sanctuary mystery soon. It's driving me insane.

Personally, I'm dying to figure out the Deel Twain thing. When we finally get down to dealing with Varm and/or Kathya, I want to try to take at least one of them alive. I have just got to know the answer.

Unfortunate that Gallagher only has Strike to Subdue to Level 1. If you or Zaland go for them, they will die. messed

Unless you try going hand-to-hand, of course. Then, they're just unconscious...a lot.

I was hoping it might work out that Gallagher could get in the final blow on one of them with StoS. Or maybe that once Kathya sees how I dealt with Varm, she'll give up (yeah right). I did think about going hand-to-hand, but I'm not sure if that'd work out. We'll just ave to see.

Indeed. And if anything, I'm sure Ithrorn will come up with something, as well as those men that Gallagher merely took out of the fight, rather than killed. Varm and Kathya would be the main prize, though.

Just a couiple of points-

The conceptual name for the oft-hinted Dark Side location is the 'Desert of Stones'- as in, it's not a sandy desert, the desert is of stones.

Secondly, the Dark Side effect on Cassilis is not recent, it's been there from the start. It's the reason everyone has been irritable and short-tempered, and why I have been winding up the Light Siders all story so that they would be irritable too.


Deel Twain... heheheheh... technically speaking you could work that out, but you would be doing absurdly well. THis one- like all the current Jedi plots- is harsh.


Gallagher's Dreams- easy. Not only is Gallagher an Acolyte, he is an Acolyte with the Cosmic Force specialist Talent. Even with that power, he might be surprised to pick up on the distress of a friend without meditating on it...

... but what he was picking up was a Disturbance in the Force, as has happened on Cassilis, for only the second time in this entire game ever. A Disturbance involving his friends- which he had seem a glimpse of in his visions- is one that he could feel.


The tentacled Jedi... you have not the slightest chance here. But I shall confirm that none of you have ever met him or seen him.

The Woman with White hair actually has another connotation that no-one spotted yet.
