The May 2017 RPG Reload Play-Along: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload Play-Along. Each month, we'll be playing an iOS RPG together, sharing laughs and tears in equal measures. The post on the front page is basically there to announce the game in question and give a few tips on getting started. The real action will be happening here in the TouchArcade forums, where you'll find a thread dedicated to each month's featured game. Sign up if you haven't already, post your screenshots, ask for advice, or just chat about your misadventures with others. We've got a great community of RPG fans here at TouchArcade, so let's make the most of it! As a little incentive, at the end of each month, I will randomly pick one of the participants and send them something small and silly from here in Japan. All you have to do to be eligible is, well, play along with the Play-Along!

Although April was intended to be a breather month with a shorter game, QuestLord proved to be a tough challenge for many of our Reloaders in its closing sections. Still, a handful of challengers persevered and saw their way through to the end. Congratulations to all who finished, and a big thanks to all who participated in any capacity! April's winner of a Small and Silly Prize has been pulled from the capricious Magic Moogle Hat after giving it a good shake. This month's winner is none other than falcon815! I'll be in touch soon through the forums to get your mailing address, falcon815. To everyone else, a new month brings another chance to win a Small and Silly Thing from Japan!

Forum regulars probably figured this one out already, but when I saw the date this month's first RPG Reload would fall on, I simply couldn't resist. Get ready to dust off your lightsabers and make sure you're all stocked up on power converters, because the May RPG Reload Play-Along is none other than Aspyr Media's port of Bioware's masterpiece, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic! This is a terrific game with lots of possibilities for Reloaders to go in different directions, which should make for some fun stories. Pick up the game if you don't already have it (it's half-price at the moment) and say hello. As ever, you don't need to finish the game to qualify for the Small Silly Thing draw, but I would appreciate at least one screenshot posted of your adventures.

Sweet, I haven't played KOTOR since I had it on Xbox back around 2004. Bought it on iOS in one of those "well, it's $3, how can I not?" phases, but I never got around to it in the last couple of years. I'll be sure to be in on this! I just might have to finish up or pause Trails of Cold Steel first. (I'm near the end of a chapter, which might be a good break.)

Also, I will be happy to receive a Silly Thing.

I am allergic to everything Star Wars. Maybe next month then.

Have fun! Get the Silly Thing!

My Switch is taking a lot of my game time but I'm going to give it a shot too. Is anyone going to roll their character?

Glad to see KotoR getting it's day. I've played through it recently so I'll pass as I'm still working through the Final Fantasy series.

For those that haven't played it before, you're in for a treat. If you have, I hope you take a different path through this time. This is a game that so often has both a brute force and a clever way through any challenge you face.

Seems like since this started I've been busier and busier
A whole month of May with gigs a plenty will be tough but I'm gonna break this one back out and give it a spin
I really love this game and there are some parts that seem to trip me up so maybe I can get some feedback here when I get to them. It's may the 4th after all so what better time to play it.

I'm following RHess's suggestion and rolling my character. Got a six, so female scoundrel here I come. Not sure if that's any good for a first-time player, but nevermind. I'll post a pic soon to introduce you all.

I rolled a three so male soldier for me. My first time through on the Xbox was with a female scoundrel and it worked out well.
