Ever since darth bane started the rule of two and there is the sith in this order that we know that followed. What if there was a second branch of sith that followed the same rule at the same time and they wanted to stay hidden and wait for the known branch to fall. They could have been sith that unknowingly to darth bane there was a pair of sith that survived the same war and had the same idea and followed it but knew that they could beat darth bane and zannah and decided to wait for their time strike? Do you think that this could be added to the EU?

Since Star Wars is entirely made up...of course it COULD be added to the EU.

will it? who knows. does it really matter? I've enjoyed just about every EU story that I've read..but they do some really stupid stuff....Luuke, Clone Palps, and Cyborg Maul i'm looking at you...this would be among them.

would kinda defeat the whole purpose of the Darth Bane creating the "rule of two" storyline

see technically Banes rule of two Sith were unknown remember that the prequel jedi believed the sith to be gone for 1000 years when Bane started this whole thing so Banes sith WERE hidden from the people until it culminated in sidious taking over and doing the First Great Jedi Purge (the second being Darth Krayt) unfortunately he missed a few while Vader (and Vader's apprentice) wiped out most of the rest there were still 2 that remained and 2 children that he didn't even know about (ironically to beat the rule of 2 sith the Jedi used the same rule think about it 2 Jedi Obi-wan and Yoda the master was Yoda and Obi-wan the apprentice Obi-wan then starts Luke out as a bit of an acolyte and then gives his life making Luke the new apprentice and Yoda the master ultimately culminating in the greatest Jedi to ever live).

Er, technically that's what happened already, the Sith Empire Revan and the Exile fought collapsed, and the current Sith Empire Attacked.

Well, since Revan created the Holocron that gave Darth Bane the idea for the rule of two, it could happen, but it's not likely, and a bit pointless. The Sith show up when the Sith show up, trying to create a mechanism for it is besides the point, and you end up with endless layers of Sith waiting for the above layers to fail.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

If the rule of Two were true and palpatine believed it to be true that the power was shared out amongst dark side users then wouldn't it work the same way for the light side? If so palpatine shot him self in the foot by destroying the jedi order as by the time of rotj that would mean luke had all the power of the light side.

Well actually if you read some of the EU Palpatine had MANY darkside users under his control. They just were not SITH.

See he obeyed the rule of two with himself and Vader. But he had plenty of inquisitors that were basically darkside jedi. Infact Jerec was one if you look him up. And he had darkside devotees who were sorcerers.

So if you think about it Bane was correct, have only two sith, but you can have LEGIONS of darksiders, who maybe could continue and have the rule of two intact.

How this senario there was a sith that survived the same war as darth bane and that sith also studied darth revan and believed in the rule of two. That sith discovered that bane and zannah also survived and that sith knew he couldn't beat them. So he obtained a apprentice and decided to go to a nearby galaxy (maybe the rishi maze) and construct their own empire.

Couldn't have for 2 reasons.

1. Bane destroyed the holocron

2. The temple he found it in was basically demolished.
