    What are XPs. I kept seeing that in the IGN review. I'm pretty sure its nothing about Windows.

    How do you get the Sith Uniform if you don't intervene on the behalf of the merchant being interrogated by the Sith Soldiers regarding stolen uniforms?
    Taris, lower level is where I am referring to.

    Go to the first cantina across from the elevator when you leave the apartment, and speak to a female sith who is off-duty. She invites you to a party and marks its location on your map. The party is where you will find what you're looking for.

    At the risk of repeating myself...where the heck is this guy that put a bounty on his wife or girlfriend? Y'know, the woman that's hiding in the Taris apartment complex, that tells you of her plight and asks you whether you could...persuade...the guy to cancel the bounty? I looked everywhere in the cantina and couldn't find him.

    Thanks, Ezekiel... I know the Sith woman you are talking about. I saw her on one side of the bar and a Sith man on the other side of the bar, but didn't try talking with them, since I was trying not to draw attention to myself.

    Right now I'm trying to complete the third quest of my Jedi trials, and I'm not too sure how to do it. I keep getting lost in the fields.

    As a by the by kind fo statement, just about everyoen is giving KOTOR 9.0's ratings or better as a rating go. Which I think is grand, I am sure X-Box needs a game like this.

    They said that by Ocotober, there will be downloadable weapons, force powers, and levels available on X-Box Live. I am looking forward to that, especially as HALO2 approaches......

    To get into the sewers,


    After talking to the Beks go to the Sith guard post, present your papers and go to the lower city. Save the villager at the gate and talk to the village leader and elder. Then go out of the gate to find Mission.

    As for Marl, you may have to advance a few more levels. I sold my rifle by accident and may buy one back to defeat Marl. I'm planning to keep my distance and pick shots off when I can.

    Can anyone tell me how to either sneak by or defeat the Rancor in the sewers, when you are trying to getting into the Valek base, with Mission Vao to get the part you need for the swoop?

    I just switched my party around so Mission was leading, then sneaked through the Rancor's legs and to the entrance. Once you're under the enclosure where the entrance is, the Rancor can't get to you.

    Look on the floor in the hallway just before you enter the Rancor room. The solution will present itself.

    This is how I killed the rancor. He is in the upper sewers. It's best if you explore all the sewers for XP and items.

    Use stealth and throw a poison grenade. Retreat back into the sewer once the rancor comes at you. Come back out and throw another grenade. Retreat again. Repeat as needed.


    The Vulkar base is easy. To rescue Bastilla you must compete in the swoop race.

    Keep pressing A to use the accelerator you stole. Use the accelarating things on the ground to accellerate even more.

    How much XP did you get for killing the rancor?

    I don't remember. I never really pay any attention to XP. I just try to complete all the quests and use my skills to gain a lot of it.

    I killed a criminal and got a bounty from one of the Hutt's. I helped the Undercity villagers by telling them where the promised land was. And in the duel arena I am up to Marl so far.

    I just rescued Bastilla and now we are trying to find a way off Taris.
