Yeah, that's the sort of thing that deserves some dot dot dots. Walk it off, buddy.

OK, now that we're done making fun of Red, ( :D ) on to his actual point. Tython is a place where a lot of people have interests, and Ghost and Cadden have been writing stuff set there - nobody else has, as of yet, and it's only fair that they be consulted.

Well that's the reason i posted here, asking why the wiki hasn't been updated ( though I'm sure its because they aren't done with there stories) and asking when i show up there for a limited time, and i going to end up having people trying to hunt me down or do i get the free pass?

It was stated that the Tython wiki would be updated with the factions and goings on on the planet. It hasn't yet from what I've seen. I plan on having a joy ride to the planet for a short while so. I don't plan on interacting with those factions if i can help it but if they are exceedingly hostile i might have to rp out something along those lines. Also taking SWtOR into account, whats the fate of the twi'leks that established a colony there, or the flesh raiders? Is the ancient saber forge still there? (didn't seem like something that can or should be removed). Does ghost really have final say on those/these things or am i allowed to rp the fate or current events of these people?
SWTOR SPOILER ALERT (Imperial Agent)!





SPOILER COMING!





YOU"VE BEEN WARNED!!!




Kolovish, the Twi'lek matron who led the Twi'leks to Tython, was a member of the Star Cabal, the ancient conspiracy trying to remake the galaxy by driving the Sith and Jedi into extinction. After the Imperial Agent completes his/her quest the individual members of the Star Cabal are exposed, and being a member of the Star Cabal I can't imagine the fate of Kolovish and her people ending well (Kolovish settled on Tython specifically to keep track of and manipulate the Jedi Order).

Well that's interesting about those twi'leks. I didn't know the Empire did get to go to Tython in the game.

And thanks Cadden.

Another Spoiler...






Didn't get to go to Tython, but Kolovish did appear in a number of holo transmissions I recovered.

I read your spoilers.

'Cause, you know, I don't see myself playing the game anymore, mostly. :P

But yeah, that answers that. Long story short, spoiler-free, we'll just make the official statement now: according to facts presented in SWTOR, a logical deduction can be made that there are no more Twi'lek settlers on the planet. Given the few times in canon it was traveled to since the SWTOR timeframe, I would lean on the fact that their settlement is long gone. When Bane and company duked it out on the planet, I would imagine some mentioning of the Twi'leks would have been made if they were still there. I would go out on a limb and include the Flesh Raiders on that train of thought.

Gotta remember the whole bane thing was done before SWToR, retcons are a bitch ;P

But i'm find with them being gone. I wonder if the Flesh Raiders advanced at all since then... i mean look at what were were able to do in over 2000 years... makes you think ;P

Just as a suggestion/story device/notice here...

In SWTOR, there is a mission where you help a force-sensitive Flesh Raider get formal training with the Jedi. Who knows, maybe that Flesh Raider returned home and began training other force-sensitive Raiders. Could be a hidden tribe of them there for all we know.

Just a thought...

Yeah, I know about that one, Nich.

Red, just 'cause it written before SWTOR came into being, doesn't mean its contents were retconned. I'm just saying that, if they failed to mention a settlement of Twi'leks on Tython when Bane and company were there, and there's been no indication that states that the settlement would have been around even at that point, it's safe to say that it's probably gone.

I'm not saying the FRs are gone, I'm just saying it's a possibilities. That one contains too many "what ifs" to decide on the same logic.

Well using that logic then Cadden it could just as easily be assumed that because they didn't specifically state that they were gone that they COULD still be there. It's a toss up... given the size of the twi'lek settlement I'd lean towards them being gone or eventually following the Jedi off of Taython (if the above info is accurate and their whole purpose in being there was to keep an eye on the jedi). The Flesh Raiders on the other hand had numbers more than sufficient to have survived and even thrived (especially if the one guy does get trained and eventually goes back to his people).

I haven't had a chance to update -any- of the Wiki's which were created by me or I have heavy involvement.

On that note, I really don't know where this thread is heading? Is this a question of adding additional depth to a story or what?

Work has been literally killing me.

I'm going to kill you both, with a telephone cord.

Anyways, yes it was the first thing I saw on my desk, thus it was the first thing I typed.

What is this tom foolery about? I'm confused.

Summer is always the busiest at work. (Well end of May timeframe into August)
