  1. spec·u·la·tion
    noun: speculation; plural noun: speculations
    1. 1.
      the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence.

I know what you're thinking, after I totally missed on my last post I am going to do it again?? C'mon, we all love to "Speculate"!!! How many of us do it on a daily basis? I sure do. Especially if it's something I know almost nothing about but really enjoy. Okay enough about speculating and on to speculating.

The announcement of the new expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire has really brought a new buzz to the SWTOR universe. I've heard more chatter about the MMO since E3 then I had in a very long time. It reminds me of the excitement that surrounded the game before launch. Many of us scouring the internet, looking for any morsel we can sink our teeth into for information.The "Sacrifice" trailer has over 2.6 million views on YouTube. Needless to say I think the hype is real.

 I actually went through and played a Jedi Knight, 1-60 once again on the Jedi Covenant server to see if there were any clues about the new expansion. Below is two things that were said that caught my attention:

***SPOILER ALERT***(Don't read if you haven't completed "Shadow Of Revan and Rise of the Emperor and have avoided information gathered about Knights of the Fallen Empire)

(This is from the Jedi Knight point of view but is relevant to all I believe.)
1. On Rishi, when doing your Jedi class quest "Old Scars", Master Orgus Din says " There are dark times coming, for the galaxy and for you". You ask him "if he has seen what's to come?" He admits to "just a little" and sends you on a quest to clean yourself of the scare you got at the Emperors hands the first time you went to take him out. This is to prepare you for those future events.

2. The Emperor says a couple interesting things also, "I have already cheated death, I have other plans now, as you will see.I have decided that life is more interesting with you in it....When I am finished here - when every life on this world has been exhausted, I want you to be alive.To know that I succeeded. Goodbye."

Orgus could have easily been talking about the upcoming events with Revan and Ziost. But I feel like there was more to it then that. Orgus was a stud, and I know he says this is the last time they will meet but I really wish they would find a way to have him come back again.

Now to what Vitiate had to say and how it correlates to the KotFE. Vitiate does not like you, at all. As Darth Marr said "you possibly wounded him more than any other has." Vitiate doesn't just want you dead, he wants to hurt you. Torture you. Make you feel so much pain that you are begging to die. 

XamXam in her blog( did a great job of going through several scenarios as to how Vitiate and Valkorion are intertwined. I subscribe to the one where they are brothers or related somehow. They are of the same mind and if you hurt one, you hurt the other. And that's the reason why Valkorion, instead of killing you, captures you, puts you in carbonite and waits to un-thaw you at the very end. When he can show you the full destruction of everything you once knew. So you can see the last sliver of light leave the galaxy as you know it. Then he leaves you alive, tortured and broken.


(Please forgive grammatical errors, I need to find me a proof reader.)

Knights of the Fallen Empire & "Sacrifice"

Okay, here I go. This whole blogging thing is new to me so take that in mind as you read this please.

The recent announcement of EA's Star Wars: The Old Republics new expansion "Knights of the Fallen Empire" really has a lot of us who play the game scratching our heads. I'm very excited for the expansion and am seriously considering subbing for 6 months, instead of just month to month, to make sure I get all the goodies.

I want to go over my opinion as to why we may be frozen in carbonite. I had to think about this for some time. Some of the question that came to mind were, For what reason did you get put into carbonite freezing? Did you make the choice your self, or did somebody else talk you into it? Did it happen by some sort of subtlety? Did one of your companions betray you? This and many more. In the end I decided on one scenario that makes the most sense to me.

In a vision, Grand Master Satele Shan see the destruction of both the Jedi and Sith empires to the hands of Emperor Valkorian, the twins and his armies. She also realizes that Valkorian is in fact Vitiate, and at the end of the vision she sees the possibility of you destroying him at a later time. As Jedi like to say " always in motion the future is". And because they believe that, she has two options. Let you help fight now, hoping the vision changes because of you and your abilities or, put you in carbonite and hide you someplace remote and safe. She would then give someone the task of finding and unfreezing you at a given point in the future. That person would help you until you're back to full health, and give you all the details of what happened in the past time you were asleep. And if the battle is close enough and your presence may turn the tide she would unfreeze you early. I guess that's three options. And so that's where the story starts for us.(Insert Darth Marr more Sith).

Let me know what you think. I will be eager to hear more theories!!

Thanks for reading!!
