The Jedi coughed, fell down and arose as a four-thousand year old Sith Lord? No offence, but that's way more un-Skywalker-like than starting the League of Free Worlds.

Hello. :P

First of all, this plotline has been developed by me and CMAC for quite some time. Shortly after I got the character, to be exact. It's a little complicated and probably kind of stupid to some of you, but in order to get the "real" Luke back and explain his complete and utter change of personality, we had to do something.

So what the HELL happened, you ask? Here's the scoop. Way back in a land known as SWVII, one Luke Skywalker was possessed by the spirit of one Sith Lord Revan. However, there's a problem here. Canonically, Revan restored the Republic, then vanished into the unknown regions. He didn't return to being a Sith Lord, so having him possess Luke's body and try to kill Leia didn't really make any sense for his character.

So, CMAC and I came up with an idea. The spirit wasn't Revan. I decided to make it none-other-than Jorak Uln, a Sith Master from the same era as Revan. The story I'm going by is that Jorak's spirit claimed to be Revan's in order to tarnish the name of the Jedi or something. Besides, the man was clinically insane, so he says some weird things. Nevertheless, try to put this part behind us.

So Leia went to Endor and saved Luke from himself then brought him back home. Or was that Luke? The way we see it is no, it wasn't. Jorak was influencing Skywalker for quite some time, allowing him to gain access to cloning technology through his many connections throughout the galaxy. Thus, a clone was made in secret and developed to be the Luke the galaxy knew and loved. At the point that the clone was the correct age, Jorak fled to Endor.

On Endor, Leia fought with the clone, who was trained by Jorak to act as convincingly like a Sith Lord as possible. However, he was instructed to lose the battle and return to the galaxy. This explains Luke's dramatic change in behavior. The galaxy thought Luke was back to normal, when in reality the REAL Luke was still on Endor plotting to overthrow everything.

This plot also explains the creation of the League of Free Worlds. If an aspiring Sith Lord is going to take over, he'll need an Empire. And the League was his platform.

Time passed and the Galaxy forgot what happened at Endor. But then Luke died of a mysterious illness. So what caused this? Simple! It's none-other-than clone sickness settling in. The clone of Luke's body just simply shut down and caused him to keel over. Meanwhile, the real Luke could finally put his plan into motion, springing from an unexpected shadow after the galaxy thinks him dead.

So why did he contact Leia? Two reasons. One, a Sith Lord needs an apprentice, does he not? And two, Leia was one of Luke's most prominent memories, and after being inactive for such a long time, Jorak wouldn't have remembered a lot of people he met in this era. He probably found Leia's beacon in the Force and figured she'd be easy pickings.

What is to ultimately become of Luke Skywalker? Well, you'll have to see, won't you? :wink:


Okay, so if you think that plotline is lame, I completely agree with you. We just had to come up with something plausible so we could get rid of the "fake" Luke and explain Luke's changes throughout the RPG. My main goal is to put as much distance between me and this plotline as possible and get to more important things. I know it kind of sounds stupid and may not fit perfectly into the realms of realism, but bear with me. You'll like where things are headed. :p

Thanks for reading, and I apologize for the confusion, but in reality, I'm pretty much as confused as you are. :p

That storyline puts even some of my best work to shame - incredibly well-done.

If Revan had possessed Luke, I would have flown to Endor and BDZed the planet myself. No one messes w/ Revan. No one.

You know... "Base Delta Zero" is an Imperial code. Everyone else just calls it "OMGWTFPWNTZ" :p

You know, I think from this storyline, we'll all finally learn the TRUE meaning of Christmas, and for that, we have to give Luke a hand. Three cheers!

One would think my main issue with this is that its another contrived attempt to use Luke's enhanced force sensitivity and canon standing to one's personal gains - had you topped the thing off with the real Luke beeing somewere else not possesed by a Sith who...probably really wasn't powerful enough to stick around long enough to actually become a darkside ghost...and then proceed to use Lukes enhanced force to make yourself yet another Sith lord with whome you DON'T have to follow the canon reprisentation of Luke, yet again - then I might have some sympathy.

But as it stands this is just another contrived attempt to avoid having to use a canon character as it is layed out in canon - plus this leads us down the [sarcasm]'fun'[/sarcasm] of every board out there that is overpopulated with prats prancing around and claiming to be the second coming of Revan. I like the concept of a shadowy puppet master using a clone Luke to attempt to take over the galaxy which erases the horrible wrongs the character suffered in its previous incarntation, BUT if you then proceed to run around with the character possesed by a two thousand year old sith master using his enhanced force abilities to establish you the player as another evil sith master character. WHY does it have to be a Sith Lord, I'm sure plenty of the Old Clone-Masters from the clone wars may have survived in hiding and would be attempting to gather more influence - or why can't it even be a rogue Imperial, or even a Corporation...as one knows it take a bloody lot for a beeing to stick around as a force ghost - and if you do you have to be an INSANELY powerful sith lord like Exar Kun and use something like the tombs on Korriban or the temples on Yavin 4 to trap your spirit - most force ghosts seem to dissipate after five years or so and it has to be VERY soon after your death that you posses someone and its incredibly hard to be mobile and manage to survive even ten years without going insane.

Somehow, a Light Side Jedi doesn't strike me as the possessing type. Also, I can safely say that Luke won't be gallivanting about with Jorak's ghost in him.

Not everyone in this game wants power, you know. ;)

Actually, Volytar, if you have been following the Luke character, you would see he was repossessed due to the fact he was not portrayed canonly. CMAC in conjunction with Tensig helped get a new plotline to return Luke to the canon Luke. Plus, this plotline is partially from VII, as I believe Tensig mentioned.

So, in conclusion, this whole "contrived plot" is not to circumvent canon restrictions. It is, in fact, to restore the character.
