As Darth Bane: Path of Destruction tells us, Darth Bane learned the Rule of Two from Darth Revan. My question is: how exactly did Revan follow this concept? We know that he and Malak were certainly not the only two Sith in existence: they had an entire order and empire comprised of dark Force users, all considered "Sith." The impression I got from the book was that Revan was simply saying that the Dark Lord of the Sith should have a single apprentice, but Bane took that principal further by believing that that master and apprentice should be the entire Sith order itself. The other possibility is that Revan had this idea but never put it into practice during his time as the Dark Lord, most likely because he needed an army with which to conquer the Republic. Perhaps after that, once he was the ruler of what had been the Republic, he planned to slaughter all of the Sith, allowing only himself and his apprentice to exist?
I don't know. What does everyone here think? 18.104.22.168 05:58, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
No, no, NO! For the last time. Darth Bane did not "get" the concept of the Rule of Two from Revan. The information in the holocron was useful in the eventual formation of the theory, yes, but it was not his sole source. In fact, immediately after arriving on Ruusan, Bane's first idea is a "Rule of One". It is only after Githany corrects him that he amends his plans. He hasn't even decided on the final shape of his order until Dxun, and that's after more input from Kaan's spirit and the holocron of Freedon Nadd. In short, Bane didn't get the rule from Revan. He invented the rule himself after taking in research from several disparate sources. For God's sake, must Revan be the source of everything? The wanked-out nature of Darth Stu truly is one of the most terrible things the KOTOR games have inflicted on the galaxy. QuentinGeorge 06:16, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
All right, man, for Christ's sake, quit your yelling! I only wanted to know. And don't give me that "for the last time" crap like I've ever been a part of those conversations. I'm new here, and am asking about it for the first time. I only wanted to know what exactly it was that Bane got from Revan's philosophy. Geeze! In essence, don't be a jerk.22.214.171.124 22:26, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Veterans around here are notoriously suspicious of comments and edits made by unregistered users, and will often not give them the benefit of the doubt, arguably for good reason. But at any rate, I apologize on behalf of the community (to whatever extent I can). Register, and the problem will be alleviated. DarthMRN 22:53, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
So what exactly was it that Revan practiced? From the Rule of Two page: "Darth Bane formulated the concept of the Rule of Two after discovering a holocron in the Temple of the Ancients on Lehon. The holocron belonged to the ancient Sith Lord Darth Revan, who, just like Exar Kun before him, had used an early incarnation of the Rule of Two when training his apprentice, Darth Malak."
But we know that neither Kun nor Revan belonged to an order where on two Sith existed at one time. Does this simply mean that the Dark Lord would have only one apprentice, and that Bane took that concept and stretched it to encompass the entire Sith order?
By the way, I am a registered user - Darth Anarcus - but I don't bother signing in anymore. I don't really see the point when I'm able to edit anything and everything, anyway, as is the nature of Wiki.126.96.36.199 21:03, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
