Thank you. Sounds good.

Anyway, look at 1:44 / 1:45 on that trailer ... These faces remind me of the Obroan gear masks ...

Has anyone thought that maybe Korriban and Moriband are one and the same, just different names for the same place?

Ancient spirits of mystical importance seem to think otherwise.

Im under the impression that Moriband is something of a second Korriban.

EDIT: How are they going to reconcile this with Korriban Lore i.e. SWTOR? A different planet perhaps?

My guess is: no more Korriban.

Man the Thread title was really jumping the gun on this one.

Considering Korriban is a major part of EU lore, I think a more elegant solution is required.

And I did say that this was not 100% certain. Apologies if I got your hopes up.

When the episode comes out it will give a pretty good indication of what will happen to EU lore surrounding the Kotor era and before. If it mentions the first sith being Darth Ruin or the "real" sith species. I have a 99% certainty the episode will not mention anything regarding the sith species. We gotta remember here according to TCW continuity, Moriband almost has no lore surrounding it.

Is there going to be a "solution"? I wouldn't expect one to be possible. This could just be them dumping the entire EU altogether.

Without Korriban you can't have the any of the events from the the Hundred Year Darkness to the Great Hyperspace War onto anything up to the New Sith Wars. Which would have to be renamed. Not only would every Sith Lord before Darth Ruin be decanonized, but all the novels and comics surrounding Darth Bane would be too because even though he's part of Lucas' backstory, all the stories about him feature references to Revan and Exar Kun.

But if Morriband is really the "ancient birthplace of the Sith" and at the center of the galaxy like that one other report said, you can't have Korriban.

I suppose it's impossible to predict until the episode comes out but by the Clone Wars retconing one of the oldest and most well established planets in the Expanded Universe, I think this is a sign that the EU is not even slightly respected.

This is already well known though. Majority of the higher ups in lucasfilm have already stated the EU isnt canon. Even TCW showrunner Dave Filoni has come out and stated that it isnt canon..It should give you a pretty good indication that Lucasfilm has recently ordered Hasbro to stop making any EU character figures.

The EU fanatics were warned of this a long time ago...so im not sure why they are having a cry now.

I know, I suppose the part I didn't expect was for them to go out of their way to essentially jettison the whole thing all at once.
