@shootingnova - What are your thoughts on Naga Sadow's solar flares btw?

Its pretty clear from the scans he's channeling the ship's power to do them (he even references the fact he's going to use that power), but how he does so between his chain reaction of Primus Goluud and the Solar Flares of the Denarii Nova differ greatly

For Primus Goluud, Sadow isn't wreathedin blue energy where as his showing at the Denarii Nova he's actively drawing the power of the ship into himself to channel through his sorcery.

Basically, I'd argue the Denarii Nova showing is a display of Tutaminis combined with TK/Sith Sorcery where the Primus Goluud showing is purely the technology :hmm

@shootingnova: Not really what I'm getting at, but I also get the impression our approach to the series is a bit too different to convey what I'm talking about

I can try though *shrugs* (bear with me, I'm garbage at explaining my thoughts normally. I'm even less coherent now that I should be asleep)

Accolades are largely used to determine A>B>C when used properly

We can all agree when the example becomes A>B>C>A the logic circles on itself and the the contradiction needs expunged for the logic to not collapse on itself

In the context of treating accolades of Anakin being the most powerful Jedi ever as being not about his potential, but actual power he can feed into attacks?

The issue at hand becomes the A>B>C>A scenario I described

So the question then becomes which accolade do you throw out/reinterpret. Does Sidious' get ignored? Or does Anakin's get reconciled in a different manner?

For Sidious to be the most powerful Sith Lord, Zonakin as he is during RotS shouldn't surpass him or Yoda, Sidious' peer. Equals at best to preserve the accolade, but that doesn't work given falling to the Dark Side should increase Anakin's power yet again, right?

Anakin definitely has greater power he can eventually achieve, as been stated by many sources, but for him to have greater power he can shove into his attacks or defenses than those already espoused as being the most powerful Sith Lord at the same place in the timeline?

It's a giant circle than needs to be a line

Again though, 5 am. Sorry for the wall of possibly incoherent text. I'd really rather be asleep tbh *shrugs*

@shootingnova - So, are you just establishing a rough parity between Anakin and Yoda/Sidious?

Or are you calling for him to be an outright peer?

If the former, fair enough

If the latter?

Seems incredibly difficult to reconcile with accolades that espouse Sidious being the most powerful Sith Lord ever by RotS and Yoda who's not only his peer, but more or less fought him on an equal level.

After all, accolades calling Anakin the most powerful Jedi ever (equal to or greater than Yoda as interpretations can go) in the context of power he can readily tap into would also by proxy briefly make him the most powerful Sith Lord ever as of the time of RotS (given Yoda possesses parity with Sidious as of RotS in terms of raw power demonstrated in their Lightning/Tutaminis struggle)

So the entire picture just kind of circles on itself in my head at nearly 5 am *shrugs*

Assuming you're going for outright peer

@shootingnova - At what point in the game would have Sion's Force Crush and Drain of the Exile have occurred?

Or is that unknown?

As an offensive showing, it's progressively more impressive in terms of raw power the further into the game it happened :hmm

@shootingnova - Think you missed a durability feat

Can't she eat a scripted Force Push from Nihilus depending on dialogue choices on the Ravager?

No Caption Provided

Sure, it sends her flying, but she's not dead/mangled, so that's something :hmm

Granted, suppose he has vested interest in keeping her alive IIRC. *shrugs*

Nicely done

Still waiting for that Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus Respect Thread to actually pop up when I search for it on google every other month though :maybe

@shootingnova

Timeframe could be argued to be fairly short if you look to the scavenger camp just outside the enclave.

Now, you could certainly argue that they just never thought to record lines for this to be an issue, but the fact the scavengers appear oblivious to the repaired Enclave would suggest it occurred over a fairly short period of time

Like I said though, this could just be an oversight of those that developed the game, but I'm generally of the school of thought that doesn't pay such rebuttals any mind in this hobby

You all might, and if so fair enough, but just throwing this out there for discussion's sake *shrugs*

Thanks

Omniscient 3rd Person Narrative, my favorite.

Now back to waiting for the Sun to die so that I might finally see that Caedus thread~

Figure you could link me to the page on TOR where this quote is said? :hmm

"Revan has become more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of."

―Star Wars: The Old Republic

You say this is in context of the Foundry in your thread, I just want to confirm this for myself. If true, Foundry Revan's more powerful than I've been giving him credit for
