You didn't FIND the Gravestone. Valkorion lead you to it.
*Valkorion comments on it*
"Did you lead us here?" - PC
"The real question to ask... is why." Valkorion.

The Gravestone was found due to Valkorion, not due to HK-55 and not due to "random luck". Valkorion states it himself, and he wants you to have it.

Vaylin, just in general. It's like there's a 14-year old edgelord with the writers.

I can't get over that they are Pink. It just... Doesn't fit. I'm also against Yellow, but that ship is long past. Green, Blue, sometimes Violet for Jedi. Silver for Imperial Knights and other "neutrals." Red and sometimes- as in very very rarely- Violet for Sith.
Vestara Loved Ben. Ben Loved Vestara. Vestara would kill Ben. Ben would kill Vestara. A good story was finally being born, a new generation of heroes, villains, and Mara Jades. And Disney left it all on a cliffhanger!

I figured they were using the Magenta Crystals.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Meh i don't mind her. She basically has the personailty of every single Dark Side Player in the game. Kill, Kill, and Kill some more because Dark Side.

She is basically what we could call a representation of Dark Side Players made into a main character for the Storyline.

Vailyn was easily the weakest part of KOTFE writing, sorry.

I can ignore uninspired roleplayers, and I can shrug when the dark side options are weighed heavily towards senseless edginess since they're still optional. Vaylin is a case of that character being glorified by the writing, which desperately wants you to think of her as a super serious threat.

Heralds of Zildrog use Lime Green crystals. I think you guys might be colorblind.

It's hard to judge a character off of Act I. If she is solely one-note like her brother, then I'll be disappointed. She's just getting started.

Arcann, we've seen enough. He's 100% Stupid Evil. The only bad idea he seems to recognize as such is pushing Vaylin around.

I really like this story,

It's why I came back and subbed and played the game for the first time in a loooong time.

But there are some cliches in KotFE that I wish we could see the end of.

A lot of people have commented on Vaylin being a weak character and I agree. That scene at the start where she was just casually walking while your character tries to escape with carbonite poisoning was just silly.

I didn't like HK55 either. He was just an addon to try and get kotor people playing I suspect or something of the like. He needed a background.

What really jars me out of a story is sub par writing. For example: "You will never *insert whatever right here*" And then we just go do it. I hate that crap. Perhaps some interesting dialogue or even some motivation for the Star Fortress commanders or even some personality that isn't "Generic bad guy" would be lovely.

I would love to see better writing in the next episode. More imaginitive writing.
