    If you mean the difference between a willing and an unwilling host body, the difference is that if the host is willing, Exar and Ulic aren't being appointed by some innocent guy. Being possessed againt your will seems "un-Star Wars" to me.

    I think the reason they made the "reigning Dark Lord" Ragnos was to create a parellel between the Sadow/Kressh duel and the Kun/Ulic duel.

    I always just assumed Ragnos had a massively inflated ego, to the point of being unreliable.

    Still, why would he claim to have been around "as the Republic drives us (the Sith) to extinction" and why would the NARRATION call him the "reigning Dark Lord"?

    I mean that "some worshipper" of Ragnos is by definition a "poor sap". :p[/quote]

    I just reread that section. He never claimed to be alive during those events, just around (to pop in with expostion). That entire quote (below) is just really oddly written, but it sounds more like he was lumping the GHW arc of the story as his time.

    "In my time, even as the Galactic Republic battles us to extiction, we now secure the future, when the sith will take thier revenge!"

    "Around" as in available or around as in near that time?

    Since the Republic was not at war with any Sith powers at the time, it strikes me as silly to assume the figure was referring to a present conflict.

    He's obviously not talking about Kun and Ulic's time.

    My apologies - I was tired and misread your argument.

    I seem to remember contradictory accounts of Sadow either being murdered by Freedon Nadd or having his spirit completely destroyed like Nadd's would eventually be. I guess the TOR video just clarifies that it was the former since his spirit still exists centuries later and possesses Not Kit Fisto.

    Let's not be speciesist.

    The lore had always been that Nadd probably destroyed Sadow's spirit until Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia said that Nadd did destroy Sadow's spirit.

    The issue here is that TOR seems to contradict Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia. Could someone ask about this on the swtor.com forums?

    The CSWE also says Jedi ghosts are identical to Sith ghosts and that both are selfishly in denial of the will of the Force.

    I'd take everything in it with a pinchtruckload of salt :p

    Idg what the big deal is here. A factoid in CSWE was overruled by a later narrative. If we need a retcon maybe Nadd thought he destroyed Sadow's spirit but he didn't because he sucks. Or maybe an OOU sourcebook was wrong.

    The big deal is that wookieepedia treats the word of CSWE as fact. Of course, it's also possible that Gnost-Dural was wrong.
