    There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

    Ryan says: "Did you play Knights of the Old Republic?"
    "Like a 16yr old trying to impress with his writing"

    Dan can't write. He has no grasp on the Sith ethos. Darths get thier reputations not by using the force but by being master strategists. Couple a master tactician with the ability to use supernatural power and you have a juggernaut. Couple that with negative emotions used to access that supernatural power and you have an apocalypse walking. Dan's Darths come off like wannabe's with light sabers. In an early scene Darth Scourge prepares to die facing a hallway full of battle droids. Really?! Then he snarks at his companion that he wasn't warned battle droids were going to be facing him. A true darth accepts no failure and plans for every contingency. But Dan is too busy trying to impress us with his flat imagination then actually put in the hard work of crafting difficult tension and believable stakes. At least Paul S. Kemp got it right in "Decieved".
