This mod replace the vanilla Ajunta Pall's Blade appearance with the "Legends" version.

 

# Background #

"Held by the Dark Jedi even before he fell to the dark side, this may be one of the few truly personal items owned by Ajunta Pall, and remains as thoroughly corrupted as he."

Spoiler-alert!:

Spoiler

The blade of the fallen, Ajunta Pall's Blade- "I am that which grips the heart in fright, hearkens night and silences the light.".

I have always thought about something that is dark-enigmatic about the blade after hearing those words, so this project was started to accommodate that idea.

 

# About this Mod #

This mod change the appearance of the vanilla Ajunta Pall's Blade with the "Legends" version. The new blade borrowed the amazing IRobert's "[K1] Vibroweapons replacement pack retexture" base texture, which having that fantasy feeling to its design and concept, and then I have them edited later to fits the concept of the "Legends" series. As stated in the mod's page, IRobert gave permission for everyone to freely use, change or modify the mod as long as he, DeadMan, seph6 and RevanDark was credited.

The new blade trying to fits the concept of the true Ajunta Pall's blade, which was described as "being ebony black in color and notched along its length to give the appearance of being cruel and jagged. It was also said to be very cool to the touch and that upon closer inspection a small insignia of a dark circle could be seen on the hilt.". Those features can be seen on the blade now.

For this mod to functioned properly, it must be installed before entering the Tomb of Ajunta Pall. [Updated in v1.0.1]

 

# Final Remarks #

I suggest you to install VarsityPuppet's "Spectral Ajunta Pall Canonical Appearance" first and then install this mod after. This mod aims to complete the Ajunta Pall's personal items part.

What's New in Version 1.0.1

Released

  • The wrong appearance of the blade has been fixed. It was caused by me not correctly setting the patcher to patch the baseitem row, to have it set from "Double-Bladed Sword" to "Vibro Double-Blade" Shout-out to @gerblul for letting me know that the mod is broken, and @DarthParametric for assisting me with assigning the correct value inside the GFF with this version.

Hey, ebmar. I really like this mod and I'm glad to report that it conflicts with nothing, especially the (in my opinion all-important) Ajunta mod by VarsityPuppet (hopefully it gets finished soon 😁), and I'm always glad to see new or improved unique weapons, as that's something that KotOR (1 especially) severely lacks. I'm also thankful that the new textures don't show up before the notched steel sword is revealed to be Ajunta's blade. I do however, have one critique, and it is a major one: "hearkens night and silences the light." That's not how a poet would describe a sword with a gleaming white blade, especially when the blade itself is what "silences the light." In my view, the blade should be black. So black that it's devoid of light. I'd suggest talking to JCarter426 and seeing if you can find a way to integrate part of his Darksaber into the blade of Ajunta's sword (or perhaps you could construct something similar without too much trouble, I have no experience with this type of thing so, just trying to give you options). The way that the Darksaber looks as though the light is being swallowed up by the dark is a flawless fit for Ajunta's sword.

Response from the author:

Amazing. I have always been a fan of your Review since what you did with Selven "Legends":

Thanks! Glad that you like the mod; either to hear that on your end the mod seems to be working as you intended, or that it fulfill your wish to see new and/or improved unique weapons. Very much appreciated! :cheers:

And more importantly, lots of credits need to be addressed to IRobert, DeadMan, seph6, and RevanDark for without the amazing "[K1] Vibroweapons replacement pack retexture", this mod would not be a possibility. :respect:

Yes! that mod in my opinion too; is one of the all-important mod that needs to be compatible with! Mmm, wasn't it finished already? 🤔

I'm also thankful that the new textures don't show up before the notched steel sword is revealed to be Ajunta's blade.

Actually, back then there was a plan to have the new textures show up along with the acquired notched steel sword, and it was for immersion reason. But it seems the decision to make it not was the right one.

Fantastic! Yes! To tell the truth, I have downloaded and fiddled around with JCarter426's "JC's Darksaber for K1" before deciding to have a go with the white glow. I am hoping to hack some knowledge from the mod to have it implemented to the blade [as I believe I will only need its black glow]. But I got reluctant and in the end decided not to go with the black glow because of this reason:

  • Of my personal preferences back then; I found a white glow suits better with the Spectral Ajunta, particularly with his glowy white eyes. Although I do take notice with the "silences the light" line which directed me to think about Black hole and then leads mo to the Darksaber, which you stated as being "So black that it's devoid of light". But again, for personal reason [aesthetics reason included] I go with the white glow.
Quote

The way that the Darksaber looks as though the light is being swallowed up by the dark is a flawless fit for Ajunta's sword.

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with you now. Perhaps, with the v2.0 I can accommodate this fantastic idea as an alternative for the v1.0.

Again, many thanks for the amazing feedback. These brilliant thoughts are very much appreciated.

May the Force be with You, JustABitAgroed! :cheers:

It looks exciting.  I'd like to see how it looks in the game!)

Response from the author:

I am sorry the mod's currently Broken as reported by @gerblul, but it is Under Construction right now. Very sorry for the inconvenience. 🙏

Update: The mod has been fixed now. Hope you enjoy it! :cheers:

And if you thought that the blade was exciting, the credits should be addressed to IRobert for the hardwork with those amazing base texture! :respect:
