What do you guy think of the novel 'The Old Republic Revan'? I have just finished reading it. Some people criticize the ending of Revan and the Jedi Exile. But i found it not that bad. Another thing is do you think that the story of Revan and Jedi Exile have finished after what have been shown in this game? Revan just disappeared after being defeated in Foundry Flashpoint. Will there be more? Where can i find?

As of now Raven's story is done, unless the devs want to bring him back at a later time.

I did not like the Novel for many Reasons .

In my opinion Revan was only "GOOD" because he was brainwashed by the Jedi .

They should have and still can make a Novel of PreWars Revan which would have been 100% better and or a Book that comes into Darth Revan up till his brainwashing.

As for will he be back , well hopefully with a better story . Dev's have left him up in the air to which if he is dead or will make a return .
I personally would like to see maybe like a Flashpoint in which you deal with a Dead Sithlord or maybe a living one from KotoR series (I or II) .

But Revan only became Darth Revan because he was brainwashed by the Sith so does that mean he was only "EVIL" because of the Emperor?.. sure he was turning to the darkside during the course of the war but it was the Emperor that finally pushed him over the edge.
"Darkness is a friend, an ally. Darkness allows us to understand others, to see what they value when they believe no one else is looking. It allows us to be honest with ourselves, to express those values that we would disavow in the light. The light blinds us. It is only in the dark that we see clearly."

Revan's fall to the dark side actually began quite a bit before he met the Emperor. Revan and Malak pretty much turned to the dark side after discovering Malachor V and then began indoctrinating their forces with Sith teachings. Remember that flashback when Revan and Malak find the starmap on Dantooine? That was before they met the Emperor. The Emperor did push them over the edge, but they were pretty far gone by then.

We should also remember that even before Malachor and the Star Maps Revan and Malak's tactics during the Mandalorian Wars were fairly ambiguous.

I think, in the end, Revan was very driven and determined to protect the Republic at any cost, even if that meant breaking the Jedi Code and sacrificing lives. He also had a lust for knowledge and power like Exar Kun. I think the former is pretty clear when Revan is freed from his imprisonment and attempts mass genocide. Yes you could argue that he went mad after being imprisoned and probed by the Emperor for 300 years. But I think his personality had something to do with it as well.

Revan was certainly no pious Jedi.

I hate pretty much everything they have done with Revan since the original KOTOR, and I blame Obsidian. They had to get him out of the way for KOTOR II and came up with a terrible excuse. Then Bioware basically used the novel to set up this game and wanted Revan and Meetra involved as a way to "pass the torch" so to speak. Both of them ended up getting short-changed in the novel.

That said, there is no way his story is done. He disappears with 10 percent health left. If he was dead, there would have been a corpse. They had him vanish specifically to allow him to be used again later.

Though I will say. the Maelstorm Prison/Foundry were missed opportunities to introduce a new and possibly interesting character.

Or just to leave the option avaliable, he could just have easily died. Everything in-universe points to his death.

Yup. I feel that Revan was shoe-horned into the game. We could have had a new and interesting character instead.

He was shoe-horned in, lol you could have easily replaced Raven with just about anyone just as long as they were a Jedi.
