Is it really this hard?

So I’m over on yet another server where I have a maxed out legacy (Begeren Colony), and was doing some recording on a new Imperial Agent Trayvae , Yes yes, I know shocker, I would pick and use the same character name from my Agent over on the Ebon Hawk server. Anyways as I was starting the other half of recording, and etc., I get this PM asking if I was looking for a guild. Well yeah I am looking for a guild, but I just don’t want any guild. My time of hopping in and out of guilds is done. I want something causal, friendly , and so forth. I want to make sure I will fit in with the people there. I’m not being a jerk about it. Just given my track record with Guilds in SWTOR is well, not the greatest at all. So this person proceeds to tell me how they are 500+ and looking for new members, Great I think, right? Well okay I have to answer 3 questions before the invite will be sent. First question was doable. Having alts in their guild and make it my primary guild. Sure yeah, I don’t have a ton of alts on Imp side over there yet, but yeah I could do that. Second question comes and now this is the ultimate deal breaker for me. They ask if I can refrain from using profanity in gen guild chat, sure that’s no biggie, being nice to others, etc, again not an issue, but the major deal breaker for me, “Give respect to our senior officers” , now that there stopped me right in my tracks and caused me to respond with this, “Sorry but I am a firm believer that respect is earned and not demanded,  the moment you demand others to give respect then you lose footing. I am sorry, but I do not think your guild is suited for me.” I wasn’t disrespectful or anything, but I don’t care what a person has done in the game, if you demand respect from me, you won’t get it, sorry but I grew up respecting the ones older than me, but then it failed because once I got to know them, they didn’t deserve that respect, so I revoked it. I treat others how I want to be treated, and sometimes that is like the worse thing for me, because in the long run it turns out bad, but when you ask for respect from someone that doesn’t even know you, that just sends all kinds of red flags up to me. I’m sorry but that is how I am, and how I will always be. You can’t demand anything from me. It just doesn’t work. It’s got to be earned and earned by the actions a person does. I am a firm believer that actions speak louder than words.

I just can not wrap my head around people demanding respect from people they do not know. No matter how it was worded, it still came across as a demand. I am finally beginning to believe this is my curse in life. Not to be in a guild in SWTOR all cause so many do not understand you can’t demand certain things from people, everything has to be earned, at least it has to be with me. If you treat me good, I treat you good, but if you treat me like an ass, well I’ll just do one better, place you on ignore, and forget you even exist at all. I don’t deal with drama, and when I see questions like those, well it makes me sit back and wonder. But now that I also think about it, they were also spamming gen chat with their guild seeking, which to me says that with 500+ members, they are not doing that great as some have probably left the game with the drop of patch 5.0 and so forth. Yeah to me that makes even more sense. But oh well, my quest for a guild will still be going on. Just will be taking longer that I expected.

 

 

On the search yet again

So after a long hard thought and etc. last night I opted to leave the guild I was in , after a month I just couldn’t do it. It wasn’t for me. I want a causal friendly guild that wants to do all content, mostly Story stuff together, some PVP, and etc. My RP days in SWTOR have not been the greatest, and I really no longer care about RPing my character, yes I will create a back story for him, give out detailed information and such, but I won’t be RPing it to death like most want, or wanted me to do. I just want to do what most want to do now, have fun and be in a causal active friendly guild that does content, not get upset and rearrange a Stronghold when things start to look bleak. So I’m back to searching for the guild for me. Of course so many have told me to just make it, but that is where the problem lies for me. I don’t have friends in game that aren’t apart of a guild, and I honestly don’t know them all that well to ask for an invite to their guild.

I love being apart of something like I was, but in the long run when trying to rebuild something and everyone has a different vision of what it is they are looking for, it just doesn’t seem to fit right with anyone. Unlike the guild Trayvae helped Co-found, where everyone left ,and didn’t say a word, or was kicked by the GM because it wasn’t with people he wanted in the guild. So now I’m back on the search on the Ebon Hawk server to find my place in a good casual guild that just wants to have fun and play the game in all aspects. Whether it be Random Flashpoints, PVP, PVE stuff, or just overall goofing around. I am sure I will find my place one day in SWTOR but right now I’m also thinking of doing a let’s play video series for my YouTube channel as well, maybe by doing that I will find the people that want to create a fun , friendly guild where Alts will not be an issue. Only thing I ask if and when that day comes is to log into the alts once in a while. I know some will think of me being a tad picky, but in reality I’m not, I just want to find something to do in game with a lot of people and have fun doing so.

Even got myself some new guns for my healer as well. I am not deleting him, I plan on keeping him, and using him, just not sure where yet. Course each day I do log in and see what the CXP bonus for the day is with him, because before I jump into doing Star Fortresses and what not, I want the level 10 so when it’s  time to jump into the heroics of it , I can do that, plus I want to grind for more alliance crates by doing heroics and etc. I just want to have fun in the game, and while I do love some of the stories and what have you, I just crave more in game now. It’s the whole reason for me taking on different roles, and right now I just want to focus on being a healer, from a Merc down to a Sorc healer, sadly though there aren’t all that many specs for healing, when the time comes I plan on making a new trooper and making them into a healer, since I know that Mercs and Troopers are mirror classes, just like when I do the Operative Healer, I will be replaying through the Smuggler story as I know that is a Mirror class to Agent, and same with Sorc, I will make a healing Sage since I know that is yet another mirror class. I do love the fact that people all over our wonderful community takes the time to write guides for us that don’t know what most of what we’re doing.

 

I don’t want to do solo stuff anymore, yeah sometimes it’s fine, but let’s face it, in a game like SWTOR there is so many more options, and that is what I always thought the joy of being here was. I love the stories, but I also crave more. I don’t want to be that person that just keeps going on and on as a solo player. It gets boring, and lonely at times where I just log out, and go off into a solo style game like my driving simulators. Of course though if I can’t find a guild I like on the Ebon Hawk, I have other servers to try and find that perfect guild for me. The one that just lets us have fun within the game and not demand things. Role playing is not for everyone, and as I have stated in the past, and above. I am no longer really interested in it anymore. Oh well  the hunt will continue for a guild where I fit into it. Until then, happy gaming!!

Choices made in KotFE ( Light side version)

ChoicesSo I said in my last blog post that I would start a mini series about the choices I made in KotFE during the Light side Jedi Knight story I’ve recently done, and well I took the time off and away from it to gather my thoughts and decide how I plan on achieving this idea of mine. So far  I have only done the initial starting chapters we were given when Knights of the Fallen Empire had been kicked off. Before I dive into the beginning chapter called “The Hunt” I want to go back to SoR and Ziost, and say this. Being someone that has now sat down and followed through each of these stories. It’s been a refreshing scene to me to see this through the light side choices only that I am currently doing. At this moment it does not matter what I am feeling outside of the game when I start playing, but how I am feeling towards the game itself. Now while I still feel this event of Dark vs Light to be a small joke in some aspect, it is also refreshing to say the least to look at it in a different outlook so to speak.

Light Side Only Choices

Chapters 1-5

Now when I first arrived into Wild Space, and went aboard Darth Marrs’ Flagship. I was then starting to think of how I was going to go through this and make the right decisions based on Darrien being a Light side Jedi Knight. While my first thoughts were to go with all Dark side choices I fought against that grain and made the decisions that I felt would fit the light side Jedi Knight. I opted to save those in the landing bay being attacked by the Sky-troopers. I also choose to advise the others to hit the escape pods instead of just ramming the Flagship into the fleet like I have done so many other times in the past. This time around I just wanted to make a little difference in my decisions during this event. Also I was curious as well to see if my actions would change the outcome of the entire chapters I’ve played so far, and I have seen some differences already. I had also opted to deny Valkorion’s gift at every chance I could find as well. I will say this, as I have only done this once with not kneeling. It’s extremely different when you deny him time and time again. His reactions are very much different in what I’ve seen so far. In the beginning I had refused his offer to kneel and accept his power, then when you are fighting and there is a possibility that Lana may be killed, and then again when I fought with Heskal, and the one that truly got me, was the first time you battle Arcann on Asylum and he offers yet again and I refused.

2016-08-27_21-21-31This was the look of true disappointment on Valkorion when I refused his help yet again. I am truly impressed that there is a reaction from him when you don’t allow him to have any control over you at all. Like I said above, normally somewhere down the line I end up letting him help me, but this time around I plan on going through this without taking any of his power, even though I know he helped preserved my life in the beginning after I stuck my Saber through his chest. Still it’s just the sheer pleasure of denying him such pleasure in letting him have just a little bit of control over me. I intend on following through with this story all the way until the Battle of Odessen all because I want to see if the title “Choices matter” really does make a difference in the game.

Koth_VortenaWhile there is still so much love-hate about this guy in the game. I have grown quite fond of his quirks. Only cause I get what he is fighting for, and why he opposes Arcann so much now. While at times I do believe him to be a cry baby and what not when he doesn’t get what feels is right. I also admire him as well because he’s fighting for a good cause. Even if we all agree that a love/hate relationship with Koth is always a good thing. It all depends on the style your character is as well. So while some may hate him, I don’t entirely hate him, I just do find him annoying at times. I try not to be mean towards him, I mean after all he did kind of help Lana rescue me from being a carbonite tomb for all eternity. He could have said “No” to her but didn’t. All cause he wanted to see who this so called “Outlander” is and was about, and how one person could have so much faith in someone without really knowing them, and etc. So yeah I plan to keep Koth around for a long time in my Jedi Knight story to see how things progress with him as one of my top go too guys. So we’ll see how far I can tolerate him, even though I may not use him much as a companion outside of the story. It’s still a great way to keep him for crafting if anything.

ScorpioSWTORNow this one, I wish they didn’t saddle me with her all cause having played through the story once, I know what will happen with this damn annoying droid, and yes I will call her one to her face, but having said that. I just did not ever care for Scorpio when I first met her as my Agent’s last companion in his little make shift crew of rejects as some may have called it in the past. Still even if I didn’t know what she was going to do in KotFE I still would have liked the option to just say “NO” to her all cause I didn’t think she was ever a good fit into the Alliance and knowing she has secrets hiding and etc. She just does not mesh with a Light Side character at all.

 

2016-08-27_21-39-13After having been stabbed in the gut by Arcann because I refused Valkorions help, and I want to take them both out. I have had a lot of time to think about various things on how things are going in the light side event for this particular character of mine. Darrien Ryder is not the typical Jedi Knight, while through out his entire 3 chapters in the main story, he has never once flirted, or romanced anyone. Including Kira, who wanted to so bad, it wasn’t until I went into SoR that I had decided to romance anyone. It was then Lana that I decided I would choose to romance through SoR and then hopefully into KotFE as well. The letter she sends when one is denying Valkorion at every turn was really touching, and yet almost like she felt bad for breaking the “Outlander” out of his carbonite Prison so to speak too.

LanamailmessageSo in a nutshell here I am starting to see the choices I am making do change the story a little bit. I won’t know more until I go and finish chapters 10-16. Which by then I will know what it is to truly deny Valkorion at every turn and how much of an impact of staying the good guy does for the Jedi Knight at least. I hope whoever has read this, has had a good time reading it , and can well appreciate the thoughts and ideals I have been finding as I play through with an entirely different outlook on everything so far, over what I have done in the past.

Part 2-Beyond Light and Dark

I said I was going to touch base once I took a non force user through KotFE ,and etc. Well I did just that and finished the chapters. So now I will be talking about how a non force user might actually fit into the this theory of mine about being able to use the force. Now I understand this a whole lot better because I’ve done some thinking, and I really watched the cut scenes, and played through it from the original story content all the way up to XIII in KotFE, and now I am beginning to understand where all this “Forcing is being put into play”, I want you to stop and think for a moment. This isn’t about being fully able to harness the force so to speak, but being a leader. The first 3 chapters into the original story were basically you becoming familiar with the whole system, and how to start to be a leader. The band of misfits you call your companions follow you not because they have too, but because they respect you, even if they don’t like your decisions on some things. So hence you are already starting to be groomed for being a respectful leader.

2016-05-22_12-51-26Now before I touch on this photo here. I want to explain something. Remember back on Makeb , if you were on the Empire side at least, Darth Marr gives you a huge amount of lead way, and tells you that you are in charge of getting whatever it is that the Hutts were hiding on Makeb and you went through the entire story line realizing that you were now a leader of sorts to a band of little misfits that really did not have a place in the Empire at all anyways, but still lived their lives accordingly with the devotion to the Emperor as always. That was the first step into becoming a Commander of something. Now we go to the Prelude of SoR, and this statement struck me as odd for a Bounty Hunter.

2016-05-22_12-51-52How can a non force user have all the fates of everyone in their hands? Knowing that they do not wield the force at all. I know this is a general saying that everyone gets, but still if you’re not a force user, and not really devoted to the Empire as say the Warrior, Inquisitor, or Agent, how can they truly have the fates of everyone in their hands. The same goes for the Republic side for a Smuggler who really has no ties to the Republic at all. Not like the Trooper, Knight, or Consular who are all devoted to helping the Republic take out the Empire and kill the emperor. So again how can the fates of everyone be in the hands of people who do not wield the force at all?

LighandDark01In this statement again it looks like you’re being groomed to become a leader even if you do not want to lead these people at all. So even in SoR you are being made into something you really don’t want. I mean in all reality of it all What kind of leader could a Bounty Hunter become, or even a Smuggler, after all they are in it for the money and the glory for themselves. Now there is something else that has always perplexed me beyond reasons and with the next image I will go into further details about it. But still you are about to lead these men and women into a battle that will test everything they once believed to be honest and true for them. Now we are fighting Revan in this and it’s taxing on some because none fully trust one another, and in all honesty why should they? Hasn’t it always been ideal that the Republic and Empire fight, and destroy each other no matter the outcome, but now you have to fight someone who is suppose to be dead.

2016-05-23_13-58-02The puzzle locks that well if you look at it from a Force users view , it would be simple enough to unlock ,but wait. I’m a bounty hunter, so this made me question. “How am I able to unlock these so easily and yet I do not wield the force?” I love puzzles and I look for them in just about everything I do both online and offline. But that isn’t the point here. The point here is if we are non force users, how are we able to unlock these mechanisms by using the force after all? Has the force been inside us all this time, but only dormant because we opted to take what some would say was a mundane path of go for the guns. Even after you unlock everything, you are visited by a spirit, yet again though you do wield the force , but yet Revan’s spirit chooses to speak to you instead of someone else. Yes I know he shows up for everyone, but for a non force user, it would be perplexing enough to try and understand how it happens.

2016-05-23_14-02-50Even Marr and Satele have seen this and knew you were visited by this manifestation. So wait a minute I’ve been visited by a ghost, yet I do not wield the force, how is that even remotely possible? I have never wielded the force , but yet I’m being visited by a dead man. Odd okay, so now we move onto the fact that you must find a way to gather the forces and march into battle. They need your example to lead them into the fight of their lives. Truly it becomes survival of the fittest when you go up against Revan and his cult.

2016-05-23_14-04-55The solo option to gather the forces, and  getting them to band together is not an easy task, but if you soloed it, this is what you had to do. Now mind you. I have never done any of the operations because of being a solo player, so this was the option I always picked. I opted to unit everyone into one further goal, and that was to go after Revan himself, and take him down. We could not let his goal of bringing back the Emperor come to life because it would destroy everything and everyone we know. So yeah we marched into his area, and kicked his spirit ass back into the force.

2016-05-23_14-55-47Here after the battle has ended, and the Emperor has come back to life, it is even noticed by the Spirit of Revan, “Bounty hunter. No outsider has ever held as much sway with the Empire as you hold now.” Hence you have even earned respect from Darth Marr as well, and that is a hard thing to get for being an outsider. He was not keen on asking a Bounty hunter to help out due to the past with Shae and Malgus. But you have earned a lot of respect in the Empire by the end of this fight, and you are now the go to person because of what you are capable of as someone who does not wield the force at all.

2016-05-23_15-00-24Even Marr knows you are there not just for yourself anymore, but as someone people can look up too because you’ve done what he and Shan could not , you got them to put their differences aside and work together long enough to end Revans threat. So yeah you’ve finally become respected in the Empire after all and have at least one dark council member on your side, along with Lana Beniko knowing that you are the right person to go in the event of a crisis, and she uses that again the future for Ziost as well.

2016-05-23_15-01-14Marr again acknowledges that you’ve held a unique position within the Empire , but yet you’re not from the Empire though. He now acknowledges you as a go to person himself. We all know how tough and hard Marr is to get a long with. But to get that kind of compliment from him meant a lot to the hunter, because now they realize they are an important part of the Empire even if they are not from the empire itself. But also means tougher times are coming and that you will the go to person for it all.

2016-05-23_15-01-26He really does realize now that your partnership with the Empire is high valuable, and accepted among the others. I felt respected as a hunter when he said that to my hunter. So yeah the hunter has truly earned his respect and not just on this encounter alone, but because you have been the go to person for a lot of reasons.

 

Now I am going to fast forward this and jump into KotFE. It is no surprise that I knelt. I have 1 character  that did not kneel to Valkorion all because I wanted to fight against him and Arcann for the aspect of having played the Expansion from both sides of the fence. But something caught me off guard this time, and it’s this next image that makes it strange.

2016-05-23_17-50-00Even in the beginning Arcann is impressed because he knows nothing of the bounty hunter, but yet he is impressed with how everyone in power seems to turn to you. Seeking your help and yet you do not wield the force at all. Interesting to say the least, because not many would understand it.Even though on this one, I chose to remain silent to annoy him, which I don’t think it worked, but still was fun to see the egg on his half face so to speak. I like to troll some NPC’s from time to time just to see if a reaction will break them, or make them smirk. But guess with Arcann he just doesn’t know how to live life without being in rage mode all the time.

LighandDark02Here is where becoming something greater starts. As you see Valkorion is starting to transfer his power into your body. So hence you are now accepting that the force is becoming a part of you with the help of Valkorion. This is what happens when you kneel and accept that power. When you don’t. you attempt to kill Valkorion and still his power washes out into a huge flash and you are thrown into carbonation chamber either way. But yet you’ve now wielded some small part of the force. I can see how many would feel that they are being forced if they picked the choice to kill Valkorion, or as I see it an attempt to kill him after all. So yeah on that note I would agree having Valkorions power surging through you is a bit forced, but if you chose to kneel. Then you weren’t forced at all. It was your choice that made that decision.

2016-05-23_18-00-28Even Valkorion is impressed with you. You can’t wield the force, but yet you triumph over powers far greater, he is highly impressed with your abilities, and believes he made the right choice in offering his power to you, at least in the beginning. But by the time you actually ask for his input he throws a tantrum and removes you from the easy way for you to get in touch with someone when he doesn’t give you the answers you need. Instead he throws into the wilderness and makes you fight him, and deal with matters that you really do not understand because you can not wield the force. Or could you wield it all that time, but didn’t because you chose to ignore who you truly are?

LighandDark03Before departing you for the time being, he gives you a token more of his power, and leaves you alone. To seek out how you must become greater than in the past. Not an easy task but none the less it’s a task you must now understand  and take head on. You must learn to look inward and find the answers you seek to become greater to Arcann and the rest so that you can defeat them and take the throne. Yet again you do not wield the force, but yet you now have powers that allow you to do just that. Are you being forced into using his powers again? Or are you making the decision for yourself now?

 

 

LighandDark04Since I am a non force user, regardless of my decision to kneel or kill him. I have been given powers and a way to use the force even though through it all I’ve been a non force user. But yet even Satele and Marr don’t understand in the ways you’ve changed, or how you are able to wield the force without being a force user after all, but this is now just the beginning of how you’ll be able to wield force powers.

I personally think it is not so much as being able to wield the force, but being able to lead the galaxy into a new way of life. It’s really about becoming a Leader people will truly look up too. For me and this is just again my own theory and opinion in it all, but I believe they have given us the stepping stones to use to become something greater than we were in the past. Letting us know what it is to be a non force user who finally awakens with the ability to harness just a little bit of this power, and for the force users to learn how to live beyond light and dark, and become fully united under one with the force. But none the less it is still about becoming a leader that everyone can look up too, and respect, because they want too, not because you put the fear of whatever into them. I hope you enjoyed this topic, and if you missed the others. Here are their links Force users and Beyond Light and Dark.

 

Beyond Light and Dark

A while back, well not that long ago I put an interesting theory out there about Non-Force users, and Force users have an impact back on Chapter XII-Visions in the Dark, and well today I am going to talk more about it from a force users perspective and hopefully when I run through it later on with my new Bounty Hunter that is due to hit KotFE here soon, I will do the same topic again with a Non-Force user, and expand even further on this perspective and go through it from a Non-force users point of view. Now mind you, this is just a theory I have been toying it, and while some are still uneasy about being forced into all this. I am kind of enjoying it from both sides of the fence so to speak, and I wanted to expand on it a little further. Now when you’re done running around dealing with Valkorion and his little temper tantrum as well. You are tasked with finding out information about the camp you wake up in. Well upon investigating just about everything, you run across this piece of information after clicking on it.

BeyondLightandDarkThe codex entry reads this.

The Force: Beyond Light and Dark

To the Jedi, the Force is a partner to be respected. For the Sith, it’s a power to be harnessed. Others believe the Force can reach far beyond the narrow scope of these two opposing factions. These philosophies aren’t always so black and white.
In remote corners of the galaxy, far from the influence of the Republic or Empire, those sensitive in the Force develop their own beliefs and values. In the Valau tribe of Nagoa, Force sensitives are considered to be marked by the gods, chosen to act as instruments of their gods’ wills. Valau Force wielders undergo an intense ritual to shed their previous identities and act solely as conduits for these gods. The concept of light and dark is irrelevant. The will of the gods is unquestionable, and the Force is simply a tool to enforce it.

Now this brings up my next part of the topic. This image here that I am posting is from the talk you as the player has with Satele Shan after you find her in the camp.

BeyondLightandDark01When this question is asked, it didn’t make sense the first time I played through this chapter, but now I am starting to understand all the little quirks they are giving here. They are basically telling you that you must focus yourself into something better than a Jedi or a Sith. Now that question only pops if you ask how can you become better than them if they are already willing to sacrifice everything they are. It’s explained at how they believe being able to use the force is their reward for serving Valkorion without question. Which poses a greater answer.

BeyondLightandDark02So they devote their entire lives to the Eternal Emperor, whoever it may be, at one time it was Valkorion, now it’s Arcann who they have swore their lives too. They follow his orders without question, and believe their powers to be better for it. Now even though at times I did not agree with how the story was written, it is now starting to make more sense to the character I am currently running through this. It is no longer about Light or Dark, and it is no longer about being a solo whatever. Be it the Consular, Knight, Warrior, Inquisitor, Agent, Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Smuggler.

BeyondLightandDark03So now they have done what many feel is the impossible. Sacrificing everything for his victory. No matter the cost or whether or not they agree or disagree with the course of action, it is not their place to make that judgement, and they believe since they have that level of devotion. They are the strongest they can be. So here it is you the outlander that must become stronger than even them. To find a way to look past beyond your old ways and become better than ever. I know what you’re thinking right there, this is going to be an impossible task. But alas it’s not, if you stop fighting with the various light and dark side, and learn how to combine the two into one powerful force.

BeyondLightandDark04Now as you are running through the wilderness, they still talk to you, and give you helpful information if you are willing to listen to it. As you see, even Darth Marr tells you how you can become better than Arcann, and he’s right. You can’t beat Arcann through passion or righteousness all because he has abandoned all that a long time ago. He has no sense of anything but his own twisted view of how the galaxy should be ran.  Envy, Greed, Wrath are his tools now, if you care to look at it like that. We all know what happened to his brother Thexan, and everything. Just like the option in the very beginning to either kneel or deny Valkorions power. He shows his colors of Envy and wrath, if you chose to kneel, he murders his father and blames it on you so he can justify his attack on the core worlds that he wants to keep a choke hold on. If decide to deny the power and kill his father, he opts to still blame you, and justify his attacks yet again because of you. It’s all for personal gain. Hence where Greed comes into play.

BeyondLightandDark05Again Darth Marr points out that the enemy stole the empire through deceit and murder, so therefor he is a master of the dark himself. But that is where the training for you to become greater begins. You must learn to harness both the Light and the Dark and strike where he can not see. He has no happy medium, no gray area so to speak. He believes everything he is doing is because he is beyond whatever he believes he is beyond.

BeyondLightandDark06But you are not suppose to defeat the Eternal Throne, just remove him off it, and take over the entire Eternal Empire. At least if that is your true desire after all. Who knows what path some will take when that time comes, but still they are the greatest threat to the galaxy as long as Arcann is sitting on that throne. No one dares to defy him, or question him to his face as he’s been known to kill them out right. Even those that chose Exile are not safe from his temper and rage that he holds inside.

BeyondLightandDark07They even have you beginning to think about what path you will chose when the time comes. Arcann is destined to die, but yet you will have the decision of which path you want, to take the Throne , or walk away and leave it as is and watch it go into total chaos. So now you are starting to think of ways to become better than Arcann, to become better than those that swore their lives to utter devotion, and what not. Now it’s time to start thinking about where you want to go with your own personal saga here. Do you take the throne, and rebuild and reshape the Eternal Empire, or do you just drop it, and walk away into the shadows leaving it in pure chaos.

BeyondLightandDark08Even now they are willing to show you how to become better, how to drop the old ways, and learn the new ways that is needed to become better, to become something greater, and yes even stronger in the force than you have ever been. It’s just a matter of what choices will you make to determine that way. It’s always going to be up to the outlander on what choices they want to take their saga into.

BeyondLightandDark11For the Warrior this spoke volumes, because as the Emperor’s Wrath, then the Empire’s Wrath, you were sent to kill and do it without regard to others. It was just the way of life in the empire once you became the over all Wrath that was used to be an Enforcer, or as many thought of him/her as. The Executioner, but now you must become something better than the Wrath. You must become a leader, someone people will look up to, and not have to worry about the repercussion of someone who is suppose to be the all gotten mighty Wrath. The ultimate killer for the empire. The one that everyone feared the most when they felt they had disobeyed the emperors’ will.

BeyondLightandDark12It is here that you must drop the old ways, and learn the new ways to become someone stronger to be able to over throw Arcann and take the throne away from him, or at least attempt too. No one will ever truly understand the force, and how it moves beyond time and space, and makes others do the wills they do. You’ll never truly master it, or learn to live beyond it, but you must empower it ,and accept that the will of the force is there to guide and nurture you along the way.

BeyondLightandDark13This last part speaks the most volume in the whole chapter to me, because again it reminds you that the force is something no one can ever truly understand, in a sense of it all. It’s also an Enigma of sorts, because no one truly understands the force, and how it does the things it does, or drives people to do the things that they do whether it be light , dark, neutral, or whatever path they have chosen. But to me it speaks the highest volume because you must not only learn how to adapt with it, but change with it, and become something far more powerful even more than Valkorion ever was.

BeyondLightandDark14At the end before leaving that part of the mission. You are given a choice. Be it to fight the creature or stand your ground, or something else. I chose a light side option as they labeled it, and chose to voice this. It’s true, once you accept that death has power of you, it no longer is your enemy but an ally that requires that you don’t have to fight against it anymore. Much like the tides of destiny. No matter what it holds in store for the “Outlander” the cards are beginning to fall into place. Once you stop fighting against the Force, and begin to accept it only then will you truly become something far more greater than you were in the past.

I hope this article proved something useful other than my own random theory and like I said in the beginning I will be touching on this subject when I take a non Force user through KotFE in the future, so you’ll just have to keep an eye on Twitter for that post,because it will be happening soon. I hope so at least. But again , thanks for taking the time to read this long post, and I hope you enjoy my insane theory of how the KotFE is different for everyone.
