Re: what if darth maul killed Obi-Wan

hmmm... good question.  I probably would have posted it in Serious Geeking.

I guess it was close enough that the Mods didn't bother with it

No, no Roleplaying. I think this should be in Serious Geeking. As RD said.

Re: what if darth maul killed Obi-Wan

eh, either one.  It is sort of a versus situation like those posted in Role Playing, but the question and the answers are really much deeper then that, not a simple 'who would win' thread. 

But back on topic, I think the ramifications would be incredibly deep, and drastically change the course of the Star Wars universe.

This would be an excellent topic of an alternate history FanFic.

He means fan fiction. As in a book.

Why don't you write one about it, ralin Drakus?

Re: what if darth maul killed Obi-Wan

Having studied the scene many times (well 11 and a half) I personally think that Qui-Gon let Darth Maul win in much the same way Obi-Wan let Darth Vader win in A New Hope.
If Qui-Gon had realised he would be able to live on through his spirit (which he duly did) the advantages in letting Maul win are numerous and being wise, it seems plausible that Qui-Gon would have realised them.

-Qui-Gon knew Obi-Wan had the potential to beat Maul and in doing so would prove he is a worthy Jedi, capable of both completing the trials and training Anakin afterwards.
-By dying, Qui-Gon became a martyr in that he died for the cause of Anakin. In death he convinced the Jedi Council to allow Anakin to be trained, which was Qui-Gon's greatest wish at time of death.
-He allowed Darth Maul into a false sense of security by dying so "easily" which meant he became more arrogant and therefore failed to noticed Obi-Wan reaching for Qui-Gon's lightsaber to kill Maul. Qui-Gon realised Maul would be easier to defeat if his views were clouded by arrogance.
-Obi-Wan learnt to clear his mind of emotions such as anger and rage after his master had died. This was a lesson Qui-Gon wanted Obi-Wan to learn, so he put Obi-Wan in a situation where it was essentially "Forget all the rage that you feel due to Qui-Gon dying, or you will die yourself"

Also, Qui-Gon does seem to pause before he is kicked and then killed.
