ALL STORYLINE UPDATES WILL BE MADE IN THIS POST
NOTE: Colshin, was adamant about the name: "NEW OLD REPUBLIC: THE FALLEN EMPIRE." "New Old Republic" was his idea, "The Fallen Empire" was my contribution.
UPDATE [6/8/12]: Concept art has been released! Check for releases under my album - "New Old Republic: The Fallen Empire."
Alright. Since I'm the writer, I'll "write" about our roles in this project. As of now, this project is a two man project, but we've been developing at an unbelievably efficient pace. This is not a mod this will run on a completely separate engine. As such, Colshin is the main engineer of this project; he is in charge of coding the game engine. He's also the head of the project who introduced the idea of creating a KotOR III on a separate engine. I'm the writer and concept-artist.
EDIT: Colsh's temporarily leaving, meaning I get to learn how to program. Yay... So adding to my role as a writer, potential "coder?".

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...
NEW WARS OLD REPUBLIC
THE FALLEN EMPIRE
The conclusion of the DARK WARS left the GALAXY in tatters. Previous JEDI conflicts have all but strained the GALACTIC REPUBLIC'S resources. Consequently, the galaxy's respect and trust towards the once revered Jedi Council drastically faded.
Conversely, remnants of DARTH REVAN'S former SITH EMPIRE have split into multiple factions, each vying for supremacy over the SITH. Such GALACTIC TURBULENCE has galvanized widespread corruption, inhibiting any chance for stability in the galaxy.
Amidst this chaos, reinforcements approach the surface of ORD MANTELL...
The game will take place 14 YEARS after Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. You will play as an individual who previously served during the Mandalorian Wars. Whether or not that individual is a Jedi is completely up to you. However, regardless of your class, you will play a vital role in the reformation or destruction of the Galaxy's Restoration Efforts. Not only this, but fate has deemed that whatever path you take will lead you to the widely unknown scourge of the Republic.
QUESTIONS THAT WILL BE ANSWERED:
What was Revan's fate?
What ensued the Exile's adventures after TSL's "ending"?
What was the Exile's fate?
Who are you?
Who/What are the True Sith?
PARTY MEMBERS (subject to change)
Scout/ Female Echani
Karyna Nash was relatively young when she served in the Mandalorian Wars. She was a Captain before working her way up to a Republic Commando during the War. When the Jedi Civil War broke out, however, Karyna was recalled by her superiors. During that time, there was a schism in the Senate - many officials were reluctant to help the Jedi due to their perception that the Council's absence during the Mandalorian Wars as "betrayal." But unlike her superiors, Karyna realized that the outcome of the Jedi Civil War would greatly impact the Republic's future. Even so, her seniors held her back from participating. As a result, Karyna - like many other troopers - vanished from the Republic military databases due to prolonged inactivity. 19 years after the Jedi Civil War, Karyna - now a mercenary - was rediscovered and secretly hired to assist the desperate and crippled Republic on Ord Mantell.
Jedi Watchman/Male Human
Vargas is a Corellian Jedi Watchman who was trained by the Jal Shey and survived the Purge. The Jedi Order recognizes him as a Gray Jedi, but due to its thinning ranks, rely on him for the well-being of the Order. After decades of loyalty and dedication to the Jedi, Vargas has earned high position in the council. Upon discovering you, Vargas begins to develop a peculiar interest in your capacity to manipulate the Force. Thereby if you allow it, Vargas becomes your "unofficial" mentor.
Dustil Onasi [Revan LS]
Dustil is the son of one of the most revered Republic heroes in his time. Although most look towards his father, many soldiers still look towards Dustil as a beacon of hope for the Republic's gradual recovery. Onasi realizes the expectations of his family name and knows what he must do to save the Republic... or destroy it. Dustil has succumbed to the Dark Side in the past and recognizes its destructive capacities. Yet even after breaking away and seeing the slaughter it invokes, Dustil is still allured by the temptation of the Dark Side.
Jedi Sentinel/Female Kiffar
Naresha Katarsis is an extremely deadly freelance assassin who has been secretly countering piracy and smuggling on Corellia. She is motivated by the need for galactic stability, and like G0-T0, is willing to utilize whatever means - even if illegal - possible to achieve such stability.
Combat Droid/masculine Droid
HK-51 was a prototype assassin droid produced at the secret HK Manufacturing Plant on Telos IV. He was among the few who survived HK-47's destructive raid of the factory - during which he was freed from G0-T0's influence. HK-51 assisted HK-47 on Malachor V and prevented G0-T0 from sabotaging the Mass Shadow Generator.
Tech Specialist/Male Chiss
NOTE: Website is up, but not public at the moment. As Colshin said, we don't want to reveal too much until we have the engine solid.
