    Welcome, outworlder, to Javyar's Cantina. Besides being a seedy Taris refuge for bounty hunters, gamblers, and weapons dealers, the Cantina is also the TOR forum's official social thread, where you can discuss the game itself, and anything and everything else, too. Bet you didn't know that, did you? :p The usual rules apply here, as they do everywhere -- no flaming, baiting, trolling, or any of that good stuff, adhere to the TOS, and have a blast! Just... don't blast anything. Or you're cleaning it up.

    I would've bet anyone on the JC any sum of money that you'd be the first to post here, Rick. [face_laugh]

    The menu will probably be added when Grimby gets a chance. :)

    The one thing I love about the boards is that no matter what the subject matter is surrounding it, the Cantina is always the most popular joint in the place. [face_laugh]

    I am digging the banner and stylesheet, especially the background to the username...pretty cool.

    This thread is just a rip-off of the almighty CCC. Shame on you. [face_shame_on_you]

    lol I don't think we're a rip off.

    Also we have a facebook group and I feel kind of silly starting a thread saying hey guys check out our facebook group

    TF.N The Old Republic

    Sign up and join and invite all your friends.

    excuse me, this is not canon. javyars cantina was blown the **** up three hundred years before the events of the old republic. i demand this thread be locked for non-canonical referencing and a misleading and distruthful title.

    now, who's up for some pazaak?

    Not always the case- Lit's social thread. for example, wasn't very active for the longest stretch (Knight was the only one keeping it on the front page) though now it's somewhat active. But I think having an entire forum spun-off for all social content had an impact on that ;)

    Maybe if we had called it a cantina instead? ;)

    So, basically, you're a liar, Sin, and we demand an apology for spreading such awful lies- for the sake of all troubled social threads, everywhere. [face_not_talking]

    [face_laugh] well now I have a new place to lurk and post. [face_laugh]:D

    to the rest of you fellows mods and posters: will this thread be as popular as the one in SWC? [face_thinking]

    That's the trick, guys. The title of the social thread has to have something to do with the consumption of alcoholic beverages. They'll flock like mad. :p

    (Disclaimer: I'm not advocating getting drunk or misusing alcohol or anything. [face_laugh] )

    not to sound like a complete newb:

    from reading I take it TOR is like WOW then, played on a PC on different servers?

    Yes, it's an MMORPG, or massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

    Though TOR will also, from what I've read, supposedly have a strong single player experience (even though it also will be online only), which should help distinguish it from WOW and Star Wars Galaxies, as well as leverage the KOTOR series connections more effectively.

    Right, which should distinguish it from most, if not all, MMOs, actually.

    well that makes sense, and in a way more appealing,

    *thinks of the recruits he could get from the new Cantina*

    *taps fingers*
