A SWTOR chat.

A chat that occurred yesterday via IM about SWTOR.

Rachael: Dammit! They have a server called "Kaiburr Crystal – PvE", why couldn't we get on THAT one?

Malachite: does it REALLY matter?
Malachite: The significance is lost on me.
Rachael: oh, you don't know the Kaiburr Crystal. It was introduced in the horrid novel "Splinter of the Minds Eye", but the Expanded Universe really helped

Rachael: The only semi-redeeming quality of Splinter of the Minds Eye, is if it WAS considered Canon, then Luke and Leia kissing in Empire was a MINOR 'eww'. There is a STRONGLY implied "love-scene".
Malachite:  o_O?
Rachael: Remember the book came out before Empire, and was based on Lucas' notes if Star Wars was a flop. Luke kills Vader after nailing Leia.
Malachite: but, but, but all nine episodes were all completed and written out back before he filmed Star Wars
Rachael: you keep telling yourself that
Malachite: the final 3 episodes are going to begin filming any time now! I just know it to be true. Search your feelings!

My various #SWTOR tips and tricks!

In honor of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ early release, here are a few online resources to make playing easier!

First up, is this video from Beta. Really, you only need to watch about the first 10-15 minutes to get the meat of the tips that make this valuable, IMNSHO.

Now that you've watched that, check out this series by "TOR Hangout". The "Quick Tips" series is VERY helpful.

There are about 18 videos so far. I'm not going to link them all, but I trust you, dear reader, to be able to search Youtube.

On to links!

Here are some pages that help you get around and find the other basic info you need.
Each of these websites are great resources for help in playing Star Wars.

Finally, For build information, check out
If you are familiar with the site Elitist Jerks for WoW, you get the idea.

Hope this helps, see you in game!

I'm on the Canderous Ordo server!

I am on the Canderous Ordo server!


Link to The Foundation of Jhantor

Just so you understand the significance....

I mean, uhm.....splendid.

Here are my chars!

Jedi Knight - Rachael
Jedi Consular - Shard
Sith Warrior - Kurn
Sith Inquisitor - Mor-Rioghain (Morrigan was taken)
Smuggler - Myra
Bounty Hunter - Pynkerton

I didn't create my Trooper nor Imperial Agent yet, as I'm parking names for a friend.

Building Character Part 8

My LAST Star Wars: The Old Republic character.

I didn't have a strong look in mind for this character, I just played with the designer a bit.

Personality is no-nonsense, interested in money, and maintaining her reputation.If you pay her to do a job, she will do it.

This isn't remotely how the character, Pynkerton, looks. I liked the random look that came up for her better.

Server: Canderous Ordo

Our Server has been selected for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.

Server: Canderous Ordo

Foundation of Jhantor was successfully imported into Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. Web support for this guild will be removed on January 03, 2012.

Building Character Part 7

This character is my Sith Warrior. He is based on an NPC I had in Star Wars RPGs I ran. He is a complete and total monster who enjoys causing pain and misery. If he lived on modern day earth, he'd be a west Texas high school football player.

His name is Kurn!

Building Character Part 6

This is my Trooper character. I don't have a strong personality in mind for this character. My main goal was to make him look like Vin Diesel. I think I got pretty close.

Building Character Part 5

This my OTHER Jedi character. She is based on the char I played in Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 and Neverwinter Nights. I was originally going to make this character based on the character I played in my first Star Wars RPG, but I realized that with the upcoming release of "John Carter of Mars", that "Tars Tarkas" would probably get banned. I could change the name, but I figured I'd go ahead and make a female char. I may change this back to a male character at launch, but this is my current planned Consular.

Her name is Shard!

Building Character Part 4

A few years ago, after watching the movie "Unforgiven", I wanted to try running a character inspired by Clint Eastwood's character. She would be a former bankrobber/highwayman. The character evolved a bit, but I never got to play her extensively.

This character is based on that concept as well, but this is her in her prime. I also decided to take advantage of the fact that SWTOR has non-human characters, so I made her a Twi'lek.

Her name is Myra!

Building Character Part 3

Now a male character! I've planned out 3 male characters. For the most part, gender fits for for the type of character I foresee playing.

The Chiss Imperial Agent: Bond, James Bond!. 

I don't know what I'm going to name him yet, but he is the super-spy in the stable of characters.

Imperial Navy Commander, CMG, RNVR, code number 265, residing on Dromund Kaas, but currently active on Nar Shadda. He has an enjoyment of speeders, a love of food and fine wine.

Building Character Part 2

Up next, in my Star Wars: The Old Republic Character-cavalcade, we present my Sith Inquisitor!

She is a pureblood Sith who had an anscestor that was sold into slavery. When she exhibited Force sensitivity, the Empire sent her to Korriban to train. However, she had been treated so cruelly in life due to her station, she has no room for compassion in her heart. She is cruel and wants to make the world pay for the way she was treated.

Her name is Mor-Rioghain!

Building Character Part 1

Soon, my new addiction, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be in my hands after YEARS of anticipation.

During the beta session I got in on, I decided to design the characters I'll have when the game launches. Unlike other MMOs, you will have ample opportunity to see more than "Your character's butt". Because of this, I spent a lot of time designing the look of my chars. 

For the next few days, I'll be sharing my creations! Being a fan of the female form, most of my characters will be women. Yeah, I'm "that guy".

Up first, my Jedi Knight "main" character:

Her name is, quite simply, Rachael!
