Very interesting.

One minor point; I suspect the Sith who visited Sel-Makor "decades ago" was Baras and that he laid the trap that eventually captures the Voice of the Emperor then.

Wonder what happens then if he really dies.
I almost get the feeling that the Emperor is announcing his intentions to the JK with that line. So whenever he gets aorund to returning, he might change game plans to whole-sale slaughter for the sake of whole-sale slaughter rather than his immortality. Hard to really say at this point though.

That is what my current thought is(perhaps I should edit it to make that clearer). It still leaves a few questions unanswered which will probably never be answered, but it at least explains Baras's rise.

I loved the story. Very good indeed! But if you do not mind, I have a question ..... what about the conscience of the emperor? His plans over the galaxy? He really wants a galaxy thrives or just want a title to sit on the throne and have the right to kill whoever he wants and corrupt?

What about the Emperor's conscience?

As for the Emperor's plans, he doesn't want to rule the galaxy or anything like that. He wants to spend eternity living every single type of life possible watching as life in the galaxies ebbs and flows over the course of time.

This is incredibly well written! Great job! I do have something I have a doubt on the Jedi Knight's and Sith Warrior' alignment after future story:

According to Scourge's vision, he would take the Emperor's crown and place it on the Jedi Knight's head as he's holding the Emperor's power in his hands. Does this mean that once the Jedi Knight aquires this power he will fall to the dark side fully (If dark sided) and follow through with the Emperor's
original plan? Or if he was light side, which is most likely, what would he do with all that power? Completely obliterate the Sith from this era? Or maybe use his power to kill the Emperor's Wrath?

In the final confrontation against Baras, the Sith Warrior has the dark sided option to kill him, or the light sided option to spare him and send him away forever. What if he chose light side? Do you think we'd see Baras once again in a future expansion of class story? And I truly do believe that chapter IV will begin with the Wrath meeting the true Emperor, if not another voice, he's most likely going to be sent to kill the Jedi Knight who had the power to defeat the voice and I'm speculating that he may also be sent to silence the Jedi Consular as well sometime. So, do you think he'd be able to.... Become a Jedi if he's light sided and after he learns of the Emperor's true plans and maybe aid the Jedi Knight against the Emperor? Or go all psychopath and try to overthrow the Emperor with maybe the Sith Inquisitor by his side as dark side? Could you please tell me what you think on this? Thanks!

No to all? I can't really imagine any of those being the direction that the story ends up taking. They certainly will not have the JK and Emperor's Wrath going head to head since they aren't going to have the classes confront eachother since that would require them to create a "canon" person for each class and then one of the two class stories would end up being non-canon after the confrontation. To date all class stories work in concert, and so do all non-class stories(with the caveat that only one side completed FPs where both sides can participate). They are not going to stop doing that in such a glaringly obvious way, at least not as long as they plan on expanding the storylines in the future.

I doubt Baras will return in any meaningful manner. We might get holo recordings of hima t some point, but I doubt they will bring him back as an adversary or ally. See paragraph above to my thoguhts on PC v PC quests as I am not retyping it(thoguhts apply to "allied" quests as well). And no a LS SW will not become a Jedi. And I doubt he will try and overthrow the Emperor....or at least if he tries I doubt it would work. The Emperor would jsut use his whole corrupting influence thing and convert the SW to his side if the SW tried to rebel since the SW hasn't gotten himself corruption immunity....or just kill the SW since the SW has surved his primary purpose already.

Ok, thank you for the clarification. But still, one of the mails the SW gets from one of the servants (don't remember who) states that he will have to go deal with the jedi that attempted this atrocity of attacking the Voice. So, Tol Braga and his core jedi group deal from JK chapter two? Since JK v. SW can't be done for your stated reasons. Or what because I seriously doubt there will be another Baras type character.

The emails never state that the SW will have to deal with the Jedi who attacked the Emperor. The SW won't go after Tol Braga's group because I believe the JK has the option of killing all of them, so they won't ever appear in any story other than the JK's since an appearance by them would create a canon resolution to some events in the JK storyline.

As for what comes next, I answered that in one of the Q&A questions. Short version is I expect there to be several 'false emperors' to arise from the ranks of the Children of the Emperor. Potentially there could be at least 8 of them and each character class must deal with one for different reasons.

I thought he was trying to become a physical god by absorbing the whole galaxy's "force energy" (memo to self: find better term) and then recreate life. Hmm, I may need to rewatch some conversations...

Nope. He is very direct in saying his goals:
