    I like being a boxer with a hatred of masks. I like how I am able to just relax into the training role.

    Also, looking for shinobi for Story of Smoke.;)

    I'm down with that.:_|

    So, without further ado, the Child of Hades fate, verbatim:

    ?Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.?


    Child of Hades

    Greater Fate

    -You will become the personal slave of Shere Khan - Fulfilled
    -You will co-found the Republic with your best friend, the Child of Dionysius
    -You will become a powerful crimelord
    -You will betray the Child of Dionysus to the Rakatan Commander

    Lesser Fate

    -You will buy several casinos
    -You will invent sabacc
    -You will become a skilled dancer
    -You will own several exotic pets

    So, despite being evil, and forcibly trying to snuff out his own emotions, and... okay, so Vic was pretty much destined to be the biggest jerk I've ever played, and that's saying something. Still, he meant well - his philosophy on the distribution of power was going to provide for an initial naivete and thus the Republic, but disillusionment with the system was going to drive him to seek the alternative power of organized crime. He would have long since been a husk by the time he sold out the Child of Dionysus, and I was debating whether or not the emotional torment would destroy him, psychologically. In any case arrangements were made to use [link=]Curtains by Elton John[/link] since the mood weirdly seemed to fit the plan. But, alas, I think we're all too painfully aware of what ended up happening before that.

    Pointless list of influences
    Like all of my characters, Vic was a hodgepodge of pop culture references melded together to fit my characterization references. Since editing time is now unlimited, I'll be listing stuff as I recall - though this might take awhile, since I'll have to go through older posts. We'll start with the obvious one:

    Sojiro - Rurouni Kenshin - Ah, Sojiro, such a brilliant and yet under-exploited character gimmick. You know that whole emotionless facade thing? That's almost all Sojiro, with a dash of Persona 3 mixed in to properly explain it. Sojiro, for those who don't know, was a sort of mid-boss character in one of the main arcs of this manga, and his technique involved his unreadable emotions. Instead, he wore a vague, indecipherable smirk at all times.

    More to come.

    Likewise. I'm going to miss Mischa. :(

    "For everything there is a season...
    A time to be born, and a time to die...
    A time to kill, and a time to heal..."

    -Ecclesiastes Chapter 3

    Child of Poseidon

    Greater Fate

    -You will be killed very early on by Shere Khan - Fulfilled
    -You will become obsessed with emulating the Child of Apollo
    -You will be best friends with the Child of Hermes
    -You are Force sensitive, and will eventually become a Jedi and slay the Rakatan Commander

    Lesser Fate

    -You will lose a sense permanently - Fulfilled
    -You will adopt a child
    -You will develop a strong allergy
    -You will win a podrace

    Those next three Greater Fates gave me fits, lemme tell ya. It's such a sine wave - first she tries to emulate Gallia who is on her way to becoming a psychopath, then she becomes best friends with Elisthia who is about as far away from 'psychopath' as humanly possible, then she becomes a Jedi ... it would've been a fascinating journey. The Ecclesiastes quote fit perfectly really.

    (I have a strong hunch that the child Mischa was to adopt is Shere Khan's son - that seems deliciously ironic - but I don't think it'd happen anytime soon, considering Bhairavi is still alive and Mischa is only fourteen currently. And I think the Rakatan Commander is Irkalla, though I've no idea how he would have returned.)

    I guess I'll go next.

    [i]After I asked him what he meant, he replied that freedom consisted of the unimpeded right to get rich, to use his ability, no matter what the cost to others, to win advancement.[/i]

    -Norman Thomas

    [color=silver]Child of Perseus[/color]
    -You will become a pirate lord, and found the Kingdom of Cron
    -You will find the Star Forge
    -You will pledge allegiance to the Child of Apollo
    -You will marry into wealth and then dispose of your wife
    -You will eventually be executed by the Prince of the Hutts


    My basic plan for the character was as follows. From somewhat early on, I telegraphed my intention to pursue a life of crime. That's because what I found relatively more important was the story of how he gets there. My greatest inspiration was probably the story of Samson, with attempts to draw from some other well known tales of the slow descent into evil for the first half of the arc. Initially, he was to justify the sacrifices he made in turning from asceticism by his genuine devotion to Panchaea. However, his drive to survive/succeed in his new environment would quickly have taken on a life of its own. I never really had enough information to know how the Apollo thing would fit in, but I imagined that he would see Gallia as a matured version of the Panchaea spirit that appeared to him. At the same time, though, his first affections would have devolved into mere lip service, while he went on an immoral fugue that ended peaked sometime near the death of his wife. I was undecided about whether that would be just a sign of how far he'd gone, one of the first things in a long time to actually bother him, or something to drive him even further into predatory amorality. Finally, though, I did want him to try and remember his original purpose, and reach out to Panchaea again before dying, whether he was ultimately able to redeem himself successfully or not. >

    I might as well, though I look forward to Sarrge's reactions;)

    We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.

    -George Bernard Shaw

    Child of Theseus
    -You will be separated from your body and become a wandering spirit~Fulfilled
    -You will eventually take a new body, becoming the first of the Chiss
    -You are Force-sensitive, but will follow neither dark nor light
    -You will become the mentor of Sanjar Khan
    -You will eventually kill the Child of Heracles

    I have had, loosely I'll admit, planned out Averagus Aniads mental journey before the very first post. Some of it has changed, but the overlay is still the same of his gradual ascent from madness into a stricter order of himself when with others. In the last posts I felt I was about at the halfway mark of the basic mental switch, with glimpses of what was coming. Even had a new chiss face picked out and done up for when he took a new body...which I need to find again.

    Being a grey just really appealed to me, even if I didn't get to choose it, as it fits perfectly in my mind for how the Chiss would likely approach such a thing if they hadn't known sith and jedi. Also, it just seemed more fun a way to express his 'dual nature' bringing him to balance in the center.

    Menotring Sanjar Khan, if Mischa adopted him that would of been one interesting romp of our characters in their journey of life. Especially with how their first meeting was starting out.

    Oooh Sa-arrge[face_batting] This one had me on the edge of my proverbial seat to watch your character like a hawk, reading every post of your's or about yours second only to my own. I especially became more curious after your encounter with the changing fire, as with your greater size my idea of death by possession went out the window.

    ADD 10/9

    One thing that I did have set in my mind was that either after getting a new body or as his send off leaving to found the home of the Chiss I would play a certain song. It, besides the quote given by Wing and my inspirations from the The Divine Comedy, seems to fit what I wanted this character to become. Especially in how it doesn't swing up and down, but simply states it's message. [link=]I am Alive and Well[/link]

    "It is not so much that man is a herd animal, said Freud, but that he is a horde animal led by a chief."
    -Ernest Becker

    Child of Heracles

    -You will become the General of a nomadic army, formed to destroy Force Users
    -You will be transformed into a giant, standing nine foot tall
    -You will become a Senator
    -You will hunt down and slay the Vampire Knight
    -You will eventually be killed yourself by the Child of Theseus

    So yeah...I kill people...and get killed :p

    As Winged said when he handed out my Fate, I think I managed to pick a character that suited me :p Susul Damasca, only one of the million of humans left after the war with the Rakata. He be a hardened soldier unused to his surroundings but will get himself an army anyway and kick your butts anyway! [face_skull] Obviously I speculated it might be the Mandalorians that would be his nomadic army or - considering the timeline - the Taungs which would've been awesome. I mean my character Sel Nephrite in Mandalore in AFAS so... :p But now I'll never know :_|

    Giant part, not much to say other then I was having quite sometime thinking of armor and weapons to make Susul a freakin' human tank! Muwahahaha!

    Senator, already kind of had the thought as Susul just finally settling down, trying to find a path that doesn't involve fighting. If it played out as I thought anyway.

    Fins! Once I saw those little face-tentacle thingies I was like ".....YES! I GET TO KILL FINS!" [face_laugh] Sorry, but this was sometime right after reading Crosscurrent so Anzat were freaking me out [face_skull] I don't like vampires and freakin' BRAIN vampires was hardly any better. Oh, and you were the GM of Odyssey. PAYBACK! [face_laugh]

    Now let's see...Mitth, Mitth, Mitth. As soon as you became a ghost it was a mix of "Oh how am I supposed to fight that?" and "How in the hell is he supposed to kill me?" Death by possession was, similarly, something I thought of but now I know better :p Ah well, the last Fate had made me fantasized a lot when it came to Susul's death, what kind of mindset that he/I should be in when that death finally hit. Content that he's done all he could to safeguard his people in this new galaxy? Or outrage that he wasn't going to do more killings and conquerings? I just dunno since I had yet to know what Winged was asking of Susul just yet :p

    Also, ramza, I has watched the anime Rurouni Kenshin and Sojiro definitely came up to my mind when the Vic started grinning like an idiot. I think he was my favorite character in Rurouni Kenshin :p

    Elisthia may not have been a psycopath, but I think that somewhere down the line she would have become at least a slightly more rebellious person than she was at the close of the game. The quiet tendencies of her personality, I think, would eventually clash with elements of her Fate, making such actions as she was to fulfill seem out of character unless she changed in some way by the time those fates came to pass. I'm not entirely sure what might have acted as a catalyst for this change, but perhaps the illusion she faced on Prakith could have played a part, and she might have taken some pains to prove to herself that it was wrong, and that her existence is not pointless.

    I think this is the longest-running RPG time-wise that I have participated in--I have played games that had much higher page counts, but I don't think any of them lasted over a year and a half, and I will certainly miss Elisthia, and very much regret not being able to see her develop as a character and really come into her own as the game progressed.

    It is not so much our friends' help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us.


    Child of Hermes

    Greater Fate

    -You will be best friends with the Child of Poseidon
    -You will rescue the first Child who dies (you will rescue them from the underworld)--FULFILLED
    -You will become a renowned archaeologist, pilot and smuggler
    -You will kill Shere Khan by shooting him in the back

    Lesser Fate

    -You will purposely lose a prestigious sporting event
    -You will do undercover work in a gang
    -You will kill a Cyclops
    -You will hunt down and fell an evil tree--FULFILLED

    With her being the eldest sister, Elisthia probably would have had an instinctive fondness for her youngest sister, Mischa, from which a friendship could have developed, and she already had the protectiveness of an older sister looking out for her younger siblings, even though she didn't always feel like she was succeeding.

    Elisthia was already on her way to becoming a decent pilot, and I think the archaeology aspect could have been worked into her character without any real problems, but the smuggling bit might have required some tweaking of Elisthia's personality, for her to do something she knows is wrong and draws the wrong kind of attention.

    I don?t know what events were to unfold that would give Elisthia the opportunity to kill Shere Khan, but again I think that it would have necessitated some change in her attitude?as she is, I don?t see how she could have done it.

    Don?t know much about the lesser fates, except the one fulfilled, though I imagine the sporting event might have been a race. I noticed that Hullabaloo, Baloo?s father, is missing an eye, but I don?t know if he is the Cyclops, and if he is, why Elisthia would have killed him.

    I'm going to stick around for a little to comment on this and provide any answers people want, as it's unfortunately the nearest thing I can provide to closure. I think there's a certain catharsis in people posting their Fates like this, and it's both fascinating and painful for me to read your thoughts and hopes. You all had some incredible ideas.

    I don't think we'll be seeing Hammurabi anytime soon so I'll do his.

    [i]We were born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race.


    [b][color=teal]Child of Dionysus[/b][/color]

    Greater Fate
    -You will co-found the Republic with your best friend, the Child of Hades
    -You will arrest and imprison the killer of Baloo
    -You will eventually execute the High Chief of the Wookiees
    -You will eventually be killed by the Rakatan Commander

    Lesser Fate
    -You will be hunted by Ortolans
    -You will conduct experiments on a Phoenix
    -You will have at least two droid limbs
    -You will become a gifted actor

    Hamm had an almost exclusively 'endgame' Fate with the heaviest degree of overlap with other players.

    The Ortolans mentioned are the same trio who were working with Jin on Ko Vari. They were the adopted children of the Blood Carver barman who Sara killed on Alderaan (in fact, if you read that scene, there's an extremely brief reference to them). I quite liked the idea of two species acting against their stereotype- the deadly Blood Carver settling down to raise a family, and the cuddly Ortolans being raised as murderous mercenaries. Their appointment to Jin was no coincidence either, they had a complicated system of favours with Sicarii established so that he would call them in if a Celestial ever used the beacon and arrived on Ko Vari. They basically just wanted revenge for their dad's death. Tisiphone means 'avenging murder', incidentally.


    Mitth- possession would have been awesome! That didn't even occur to me.

    Sarge- Taungs were indeed the plan!

    Anne- the prestigious sporting event would have been the podrace that Mischa won. I don't know why Elisthia would lose it on purpose, though I had vague ideas of it being linked to a betting ring that would overlap with the undercover gang work. The shooting of Shere Khan was an homage to the way both Palpatine's Clone and Ulic Qel-Droma meet their end in the EU. Also I liked the thought of one of the few non Force-sensitives being the one to kill off Khan. I think the plan was that Khan would capture several of the Man Cubs after attacking Tython, and proceed to take you back to Coruscant for public humiliation and execution. Eventually either Raksha or Vic would slip you the blaster pistol that you would then use to kill him.

    Cyclops was not intended to be Hullabaloo, but excellent observation skills (as usual).

    Wait, Elisthia was going to let Mischa win?! That's ... haha, that is sneaky, Wing. :p I can actually see that happening, and Mischa especially being rather oblivious to what happened and why.

    Another question for you Wing - and ironically this is a question you floated earlier in the game which nobody had thought to ask - what were the Man Cubs' origins? How did they really end up in Bagheera's care? How did he get a Panchean ship? And why don't they (the older ones, anyway) remember anything about their pre-Alderaan time?
  16. Winged_Jedi

    Winged_Jedi Jedi Grand Master star 4

    Feb 28, 2003
    Oh yeah. It's been a while since I thought about it, but I'll do my best...

    This was the timeline I sent to my the Panchaean players when they joined up:

    5,000 years ago
    The Architects, also called The Celestials, rule the galaxy. In our story, they were also the first humans.

    The key to their power lies with their sentient worlds, living planets that are capable of using the Force and thinking for themselves (similar to Zonama Sekot).

    3,000 years ago
    The Rakatans rise to power. They fuse Architect technology with their own, resulting in terrifying creations such as the Star Forge. They take over the galaxy, waging a bloody war upon the Architects.

    1,000 years ago
    The Architects have faded into obscurity and are largely forgotten about until a group of explorers stumble across them. The Rakatan Emperor is astonished that the millennia-old enemy of his race are still alive, and he declares a holy war upon them.

    This time, the Rakatans hunt the Architects to near-extinction. The last survivors (around one million people) take refuge on their last remaining living world, Panchaea. In order to protect them and preserve them for a more peaceful future, Panchaea puts them all into a deep sleep, akin to stasis, freezing them in time. She jumps from system to system, never staying in one place.

    30 years ago
    A young prince named Shere Khan leads a slave rebellion against the Rakatans. This combined with a mysterious plague spells the end for the Rakatans. The brutal Togorian Empire is born, led by Khan.

    12 years ago
    Infant humans are discovered on Alderaan by the Cathar named Bagheera. Where did they come from? All will be revealed.

    1 year ago
    Shere Khan hears about the Man Children and invades Alderaan. Our story began here.

    The deep sleep of Panchaea was similar in my mind to something out of Sleeping Beauty. Panchaea itself was one of the youngest of the living worlds- it would have been revealed later that she was essentially an infant by the standards of her 'species'. And just like any young child, her sleep was disturbed every now and then by nightmares.

    Remember the scene where the new players were introduced? Ecko was on Panchaea with Baloo and Hullabaloo, and suddenly the sky turned black and the earth shook. Well, that was Panchaea having a nightmare. And every time she does that, she accidentally shakes some of her inhabitants out of their slumber.

    This had happened four or five times over the course of the last millennium. A few people would be rudely awoken, and find that they were unable to wake up anyone else. And sometimes they would manage to get off-planet, but eventually they would just die alone somewhere. They couldn't restart the human race by themselves, after all.

    One time she had an exceptionally bad and also exceptionally strange nightmare, and woke up nine humans from the same village. Eight of them were young children. The sole adult was a man named Loxias, a supremely gifted AI engineer. His daughter (Gallia) had been woken up with him, as had his niece (Mischa). He attempted to release his sister (Shanti- Mischa's mother), but only succeeded in damaging her pod beyond repair, killing her in the process.

    Eventually he managed to find a ship large enough to leave the planet, and left behind one of his inventions, the Orange Boxes (similar technology to the Sith/Jedi holocrons), to serve as a guide for anyone who might awake in future. He landed on the first world that seemed habitable, which was Alderaan.

    There he encountered our favourite Cathar, Bagheera. Loxias soon learned that humans were Public Enemy No.1 in the Great Jungle, and that the children would not be safe. He persuaded Bagheera to find a home for them, while he went to try and find a way to wake up everyone else on Panchaea. Before he left, he rigged up one of the Orange Boxes to the Panther Centurion as an AI for the ship.

    Loxias did not get very far though, and was captured by Shere Khan. He gave up no information under tortu

    Well, I have no time to look for my original PM, but I think I was pretty unrelated to everybody else. I had a rivalry with gallia included and an early death, after becoming the first Jedi. Everything else was pretty much non connected to everybody else. Which seems to fit my style of playing elora rather unconnected from her sisters and brothers . . .

    LordT told me he would have cameoed somewhere down the road, if it had worked out and would have been a nemesis to Fin, giving us the long awaited Fin vs. LordT duel we never saw happening. Well, I´ll miss ManCubs. It would have been a blast see all this come to Fruition. :rolleyes:

    With SotS gone too, we are REALLY running out of games to "figure out" around here, do we?

    For what it's worth Sirak, here was yours:

    If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

    -John Quincy Adams

    Child of Ares

    Greater Fate

    -You will form a fierce and bitter rivalry with the Child of Apollo
    -You will fall in love with the disfigured Child
    -You are Force Sensitive, and will found the Jedi Order
    -You will eventually be killed by the Rakatan Commander

    Lesser Fate

    -You will have a child of your own
    -You will bankrupt a casino
    -You will become a master at dejarik
    -You will become a chronic insomniac

    omg! The disfigured child - Bakara?! Now that's ironic. :p

    I love that she would've bankrupted a casino. One of Vic's, perhaps? [face_laugh]

    Timeline: That's ... very sneaky of Bagheera. :D I thought maybe that Mischa and Gallia might've been biological sisters, actually, because Loxias seemed so distressed. Wonder if Gallia ever was to meet Loxias? We need to get Nick over here ...

    Thought I added this before, but I also love that Elisthia would've become all Han Solo/Indiana Jones-esque. :D

    Now let me guess what was Sirak´s "plot that won´t be playable" :p Actually I saw a fierce rivalry between her an Bakara and was sielntlys waiting for her "Chokes her brother to death with the force" fate to fulfill. [face_laugh]

    I need to search for my PM, but I was meant to become a vampire and Sarge was to kill me. I would also kill Baaghera at one point. And totally unfitting I was meant to become one of Elora´s pupils. A Jedi so to say . . .

    More interesting for me though was a well hidden plot of my own (and Winged) that I actually betrayed "mankind" by allowing rakatans to commit a genocide once, to have a stronger point in the argument to fight back . . . so the good General was a traitor, actually, which he did not remember yet.

    I always imagined my apprenticeship with Elora would begin by me trying to kill her . . . good old tradition, you know.


    But actually i can life with the idea that Cato is out there, travelling the stars for centuries and giviing birth to a race of Vampires, without ever remembering or ever finding satisfaction for his thirst for blood . . . until one day someone brings him to an end . . .

    Actually I made him an Anzati after reading one of your comments, I believe. Knowing you would kill me anyway and considering I hate to mae you hate my character (despite you hating me for torturing your poor blind fella in Odyssey, hehe) I thought . . . Vampires are anzati in SW, so why not? And Winged allowed me to take this direction . . .

    It allowed me to eat Mitth´s guys brain, too. Which was a plus. :p

    :rolleyes: Yes, because picking it wasn't enough anymore was it:p

    Actually that was one of my favorate parts was his eating Averagus' brain, and I suspected he was a traitor to his people. Although whether as a means of subversion to save or to bring about mutual destruction I was unsure. . .turns out it was the one I least suspected.

    One thing that came to mind after reading that he was to be killed by Sarrge's character was that it might be a revenge killing. Something where he would of done it, possibly getting a body then solely for that reason, giving up everything to perform that last act. If possible I would of asked about even possessing the corpse and having it reform under the blending of their fires to have the showdown be even more dramatic...that or else going for whomever becomes the Child of Hercles right hand being.[face_idea]

    One thing I do wonder about though, was if after this was it going to be a fade out moment where Averagus once possessing his vengence, would of turned holstering and clasping down whatever weapon he used to step aboard a ship and dissappear into the unknown. Swearing to never take a life except for a life, and to watch over the future of his younglings but never again to sway the balance.[face_thinking] Thus leaving with possibly only a single recording avowing this and revealing his new form to those few remaining mancubs at this later date. Maybe even just the glowing of his eyes with the voice visualized. (Also by this point formalizing an agreement with his mental counterpart, something that would of possibly become a recessive/dominant trait of his children.)

    So, maybe once the other fates are posted, and possibly discussed, could you tell the end game scattering Wing?

    I'm also a little curious as to what would have become of some of the major NPCs--Irkalla was plotting something in the Netherworld, Sara's Fate indicates that someone killed Baloo, and was Fins really supposed to kill Bagheera?! We also haven't seen Colonel Hathi, Steam, Chil or Darzee since Bakara and Gallia left them, and it's been a minute since Vic was (however briefly) reunited with Rama and Raksha--though Winged's tentative plan for the ending suggested that Raksha might have survived as Khan's prisoner through the game.

    Bah! I missed my chance to actually be in a game where I could've commanded the Taung! Damn it! :_| ....Susul was just too perfect for me [face_hypnotized]

    It was probably the Anzati freaking me out comment <.< Bah, I despised Crosscurrent but it's been a long, long time since anything in any kind of literary work freaked me out. Of course it would end up being the vampires that has the face tentacles that go into your nostrils and scramble your brains and....ugh...*shudders*

    Do not want >.>

    Like I said, I fantasized a lot about what could be Susul's final, fatal duel. Unlike Odyssey where I was fighting tooth and nail to keep Tenk alive and didn't even let myself have the THOUGHT of him perishing, for Man Cubs I already knew what to expect from Susul which thus allowed me to focus on plans for the EPIC DEATHS! :p

    Course, in light of some of these Fates, my previous fantasies of Susul being the good guy in all this may seem to have been premature :p I mean there's Cato having apparently been about to be apprenticed to a Jedi and, at least this is my opinion, killing a Jedi apprentice kind of doesn't make you look like a good guy [face_laugh] I'm going to assume that Susul may've decided to end Cato's life just for what he had done in the past >.>

    That or Susul himself freakin' hates vampires.

    Ah well, I think I would've still had a lot of fun forming up the most epic of deaths ever!

    Oh! :eek:

    *raises hands in the air* Who called it!? Who called it!? Months ago in the rpfchat I so called this because I knew that it would be exactly what Winged would do!

    Though to be fair I only came to such a conclusion when Winged told me about that movie he liked. The one when the father accidentally sleeps with his daughter because he hasn't seen here in years or....something. I dunno where the PM for that was <.<

    Here's Fins' Fate:

    "Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil;
    With them forgive yourself."

    -William Shakespeare

    Child of Achilles

    -You are Force-sensitive, and will follow the lightside teachings of the Child of Ares
    -You will be transformed into a vampire
    -You will bite and infect Bagheera
    -You will become aware that you are a character in a story, and break the fourth wall
    -You will be slain by the Child of Heracles

    Fins is misremembering slightly there, as Bagheera doesn't actually die. In fact, I imagined Bagheera would turn out to be the narrator of the entire story in the end. I don't know how we'd have transformed him into some sort of Cathar-Anzati, but I'm sure we'd have figured it out.

    As you can see, this arc was intended to be a redemptive one. Fins had the idea for a dark past and the betrayal of the Celestials, which was a great addition. We hadn't quite gotten round to revealing it yet, but there's a very subtle reference to it in my episodic posting of Irkalla's backstory- Nergal (as he was then known) was the Rakatan General to whom Cato betrayed his people.

    Mitth- if you're asking what the situation is at the end, I'll sum it up once all the Fates have been revealed...

    Sarge- the film is [i]Oldboy[/i]. You know my twisted mind alright! :p

    Anne- good question. I think Rama and Raksha would have both survived to the end, and returned to the Wolf Pack. To discuss the fate of the other NPCs, I should first explain how the over-arching plot was to play out. Each chapter revolved around a major event or two:
    Chapter 1- the escape from Alderaan
    Chapter 2- the beginning of the journey (one year jump)
    Chapter 3- the awakening of the Panchaeans
    Chapter 4- the founding of the Jedi Order (one year jump)
    Chapter 5- the death of Shere Khan
    Chapter 6- the founding of the Republic
    Chapter 7- the return of the Rakata (five year jump)
    Chapter 8- the final battle
    So Hathi, Steam and Buldeo (and the various NPCs directly associated with them) would be heavily involved in the fight back against Khan and the final war with the returned Rakata. General Jaguar would have gone rogue. Several of them would probably have perished; the rest would have taken up prominent positions within the fledgling Republic. Kali would have died. Taka would have become a leading Jedi Knight, as would Malacoda. Bagheera survives to the end.

    Baloo's Fate is tied up with Ecko's; likewise Irkalla and Gallia.


    We didn't see very much at all of JEDIGUNSHIP, was his Fate.
    Wealth may be an excellent thing, for it means power, and it means leisure, it means liberty.

    [b][color=purple]Child of Jason[/color][/b]

    -You are Force-sensitive, and will follow the teachings of the Child of Apollo
    -You will end up becoming the Prince of the Hutts
    -You will take a phoenix as a pet
    -You will become a famous holo-movie star
    -You will eventually execute the King of Cron

    It's only really of interest to Jabba-Wocky. This is the guy who would have killed you! I imagined that Jin would have ended his relationship with Sicarii badly, and ended up getting on the wrong side of the Hutts. The Child of Jason would basically have become their personal enforcer.>
