I've learned not to look that deeply into what people say as it's mostly a reflection of themselves. A personal library is a reflection of who you are.

First part - Moddb.com - A bitter tale of lingering hopes

2. Even though... there's a silver lining in it all.

"Fear is a reaction, fortitude is a decision." She finally plucked up enough courage to visit an archaic, neglected and long-forgotten tomb on the barren, arid world of Korriban. It was a deliberate resolve and Meetra's encouragement that led Bastila here. Surik merely mentioned a vault where Revan appeared to her and that perhaps in the same place the Force would reveal a sensible answer to the current predicament.


As her pristine star-ship touched down smoothly in the valley of ancient, tenebrous lords, she gazed at the abrasive sand and worn-out structures in front of her. She was wondering what sort of potent artifacts may lay beneath the sands of this particular region of the planet. She gracefully left the ship.

Darkness dwells in this grim place, but she wouldn't let the sentiment get the better of her. She had learned her lessons and under the tutelage of Revan, her understanding of the Force evolved beyond the comprehension of the stoic, conventional Jedi masters that wouldn't venture off the beaten path.


Darkness paved the way for a considerable insight into the Force. Distinguishing light and obscurity and being able to walk a thin line between these two sides is as if you striked a happy medium. "Positive emotions like love and happiness can strengthen your connection to the Force in the same way that hatred and anger bestow more power on those who follow a different path." She paraphrased Revan's words.


Now it was time to soak up the atmosphere and venture into the forbidden labyrinth and vault where Revan's Force apparition was seen by Meetra. Surik also mentioned that her former teacher at that time, Darth Traya, subtly urged her to make a choice saying that apathy is death. She was implying the Mandalorian Wars and Revan's deplored choices of coure.


As Shan was walking past abandoned archaeological sites, she noticed deceased bodies and their relics. She was advised not to touch such things as they could evoke ancient spirits in the valley.


At last she spotted the entrance to the tomb, but it was entirely collapsed, debris all over the place, slightly tilted columns, dust and so on. She sat cross-legged in front of the entrance. She closed her eyes and slowly but deliberately started telekinetically lifting the debris and putting it aside. She positioned 2 columns in a vertical way in order to support the entrance. At this point she was ready to walk into the tomb.


Once inside, Shan noticed several flying creatures heading her way. She got ahold of them using the Force and smashed them into the wall crashing their bones and instantly killing them. She followed a beaten track disposing of the same creatures in various ways. The tomb was almost empty implying that numerous people had been here before. At long last, the cave she was in finally ended revealing an open space with a narrow bridge in front of her. Bastila sensed a tremor in the Force as she noticed one of the worst monsters appearing out of thin air just beyond the small bridge.


She wouldn't miss out on such a difficult challenge and almost nobody would share her enthusiasm for sheer fun in this situation. Instead of attacking the beast directly, she attempted to influence its mind with the Force. It had worked perfectly on any creature until now. All of a sudden, Gundark launched at Shan threatning to rip her apart with its tusks and claws.

There was no need to go through this charade using a lightsaber and instead she used a force lightning to overpower the beast, which subsequently began to stagger. Lightning bolts were so intense that they burned Gundark's flesh. It was high time to finish off the beast. Bastila shot a blast of air at the monster sending him into a wall. The Force blast was so powerful that the beast was ripped apart leaving an immense hole in the dusty wall.


Now, it was time to pursue the path to the bitter end. "Place is shaping up real nice." she said leaving Gandark lifeless body behind...

“A toast, then,” Sidious said. “To the culmination of decades of brilliant planning and execution.”​

“And to the new meaning we will tomorrow impart to the Rule of Two.”​

They drained their glasses, and 11-4D immediately refilled them.​

“Only you could have brought this to fruition, Darth Plagueis,” Sidious said, settling into a chair. “I will endeavor to live up your expectations and fulfill my responsibility.”​

Plagueis took the compliment in stride, neither haughty nor embarrassed. “With my guidance and your charisma, we will soon be in a position to initiate the final act of the Grand Plan.” Making himself more comfortable on the couch, he signaled for 11-4D to open a second bottle of the vintage. “Have you given thought to what you will say tomorrow?”​

“I have prepared some remarks,” Sidious said. “Shall I spoil the surprise?”

Plans are fragile things, and life often dashes expectations to the ground.

Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the transcendent and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself.

If you are to truly understand, then you will need the contrast, not adherence to a single idea.

Take the greatest Jedi Knight, strip away the Force, and what remains? They rely on it, depend on it, more than they know. And that is what I sought to understand. How one could turn away from such power, give up the Force and still live.

You do not need outside enemies. For you, the one you have to fight is none other than your own image.

The things we can't obtain are the most beautiful ones.

Propelled by fear or hatred, even a Jedi can pass beyond the constraints of the Order’s teachings and discover power of a more profound sort.

But no Jedi who arrives at that place, who has risen above his or her allegiance to peace and justice, who kills in anger or out of desire, can lay real claim to the dark side of the Force.

Their attempts to convince themselves that they fell to the dark side, or that the dark side compelled their actions, are nothing more than pitiful rationalizations. That is why the Sith embrace the dark from the start, focusing on the acquistion of power.

We make no excuses. The actions of a Sith begin from the self and flow outward. We stalk the Force like hunters, rather than surrender like prey to its enigmatic whims.

We embrace the spectrum of emotions, from the heights of transcendent joy to the depths of hatred and despair. Fearless, we welcome whatever paths the dark side sets us on, and whatever destiny it lays out for us.

Every choice you have made, has led you to this moment - Moddb.com

“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others.

Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence.”

What’s been happening in these past few months has led many of us to reflect on what are our real priorities in life.

Do you like Star Wars? What are you looking forward to in 2019?
It seems we've got a tight schedule.

I'm especially hyped for the Fallen Order video game. I hope it's an RPG and that it has a decent combat system like RoTS game.

Episode 9 should clarify pretty much everything. This instalment concludes the Skywalker saga.

"The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic."

As for TCW season 7, it should be informative and compelling. And I hope it ends just like Clone Wars 2005 mini-series- during the battle of Coruscant, but it'll most likely end with/during the siege of Mandalore.
