    Hey, what happened to that after Forces of Corruption?

    Just another loose thread really, unfortunately, that will most likely never be finished up. I think the Empire at War developer shut down long ago too, and EA will probably be too busy redoing the Battle of Hoth again to even think about a Star Wars RTS game.

    Interesting tidbits. The Revanites were somewhat interesting with their worship of Revan (as well as their fan theory of Revan being host body to the Sith Emperor or something like that), though they sure spread fast, but having both Republic and Sith followers would make sense, given Revan's own life. Just hope they don't just replace Dread with Revanite as the new third faction for both sides to fight.

    Too bad Revan wasn't around long enough to take control of the Revanites (unless after he was defeated at the Foundry he did take control of them, you never know). Then again, just because the cult was inspired by him doesn't necessarily mean they'll listen to him either, cults are crazy like that.

    Massive shadow war with the Zann Consortium? Thus explaining why we never see or hear about them again?

    Hmm, the Order of Revan... I forget if the Revanites were actually called that, or if this could actually be different and the name for the real Revan's own faction?

    But running with the idea it is indeed the same Revanites who we saw on Korriban, this now makes me wonder if the spoilers about seeing "Darth Revan" again will have been red-herrings, and if it'll turn out to just be a Revanite imposter again, as that questline was only for Imperial players, so this might just be to let Republic players also have some fun fighting the Revanite fanatics...

    If it is indeed the real Revan, though, whether a different group, or he's taken control of the Revanites, or whatever, then I do like the idea that Revan would be doing what Kreia had said all along: gathering both Jedi and Sith to defeat the True Sith [Emperor].

    The Rakatan artifacts is interesting... am I right in remembering that in addition to the Star Forge and Foundry, there was rumoured to be a third Rakatan factory? I forget where I read that... but I could have sworn I'd read that. Even if it'd be a bit of a re-run of the Foundry, I'd be fully open to something like that simply due to how boring the Foundry was, as at least this time there'd be some build up, not just "go to this place you've never heard of before".

    I hope Imperial players won't be forced to just go and bash Revan again though. We've done that already. It'd be nice to see the Dark Council questioning the Emperor's agenda and the Player Character allowed to actually pick a side, rather than be forced into just being the good little Imperial who goes to fight the bad man who wants to defeat the Emperor. It's pretty clear the Emperor has no loyalty to the Empire anymore than the Republic, and they need to start letting your character's story start seeing that, even if Darth Marr or some of the other senior Sith continue to play nice, your own character will need to eventually reach a situation where they'll almost surely end up fighting the Emperor in an Operation.

    About "The Infinite Army"...
    It looks that it is an army of cyborgs.

    Theron Shan: "That means I can't trust my people, and Lana can't trust hers--present company excluded. And if the Revanites are building an army of cyborgs..."


    Yes, and they are regarded as threat by both sides

    I think that there are 4 possibilities with Revan appearance:
    1. Revan is alive and (or not) leading the Order of Revan.
    2. Another Revan wannabe imposter.
    3. Revan as force ghost.
    4. Revan as hologram.

    It is also worth noting that this NPC is no longer named "Master". Now it's called "Revan".

    I was if the third star forge can turn the galaxy into a bunch of Korribans.

    Yes! The origin of Moraband! 8-}

    :p

    (Although, actually, that's a damn interesting idea... as usually "can xenoform planets" makes people think of changing the wildlife or creating new rivers and plants... but it could do the opposite, and be used to desolate planets, so... very interesting thought... xenoforming a world back into a barren rock. That's a very, very nasty weapon.)

    If I was doing SWTOR's story I'd stay away from TCW. I don't understand why the EU keeps flying so close to the sun.

    Heh, according to the cantina tour data, of all worlds for a new starfighter map, they choose Denon. Assuming that's not a typo and I'm not thinking of the wrong planet either. Well, for all those complaints that we never got to see Denon after the Vong War (when Coruscant was supposed to be uninhabitable for decades), at least TOR will show some of it. It'll just be another generic planet, but still, nice to see TOR drawing on the EU.

    Theron looks pretty good, close to what we saw of him in Lost Suns, hope his voice will be good too. The 2.7 public test update has been pushed to... well, whenever they feel like it (it was supposed to be last Monday, then Wednesday, then Thursday, now they say they're still working on some last minute bugs), so don't think there have been any videos yet.

    Especially in this era, there's always another ancient device or superweapon to dig up, just hope the story won't be utterly generic.

    I wonder why they still bother with Character concept art, when their crappy engine or art style cant make subtle enough appearances that differs from the 20 or so default appearances.

    Why would an interstellar war ever be called a "shadow war"? They're not beholden to keep continuity where only Rebels/Imperials are allowed to be significant at any one time.

    I let it expire because of TESO. But I might sub another month for the double xp weekend.

    It's funny how Theron looks 20 years older than he's supposed to be, while his mother looks 30 years younger than she's supposed to be. I can't help but coming to the conclusion that Revan had very bad genes and Bastila had amazing genes, so that 10 generations later, we get a mother who looks younger than her son. [face_laugh]

    Also what is Lana's Sith Title?

    She's a Jedi, she has Force Mask to make herself look younger.

    Remember Darth Zash?

    At last we have more blonde female Sith.

    Well, it's free and I've got nothing better to do with my spare time at the moment.

    Might as well start playing this.

    GLHF! I'm so jealous. You have 10 unique storylines ahead of you, if you get that far, that is. Finished most of them last month after a year of playing and went free to play waiting for the next big story expansion.
