Because of the massive amount of spoilers that this article generates concerning KotOR, Revan the novel AND SW:TOR, I do not want to give you anything to skim over before you actually started reading this article, if you are planning on reading the book yourself, or if you have still not played either game yet and do not want to be spoiled up front.

Query: Was anyone who has been following Master Gnost’s timeline series surprised that Revan will figure prominently in TOR?  No, but it was still thrilling when BioWare  drew that curtain back even more and announced their newest trailer, “Mysteries of Knights of the Old Republic.”  Combat video and conversation video are edited together to simulate the questing experience of a party sent to explore Revan’s complex.  Bonus: HK-47!
