    havn't played it in months due to lack of time. so.. if you just want story, no need to play I guess. if you want all little details, play it. but wern't there restrictions for free to play mode that you can't do or use all stuff or are limited to no operations or expansions unless you pay?

    Not following you. Just species, or more?

    they got their own entries. not many news there in the species entry though. with characters there is more I bet. but they certainly did advance republic medical technology a lot

    Anything about the Mon Cal Supreme Chancellor? Or the status of Dac during this war? IIRC, it is on the edge of Sith controlled space.

    Also enjoy your bombardment of white faces in the ERG

    Nice connections to the game as I recognise some of the stuff.

    Examples:
    • Dagger Wing is for the Republic Trooper on Belsavis
    • Senator Dodonna is from the Smuggler campaign I believe
    • The War Trust is from the Sith Warrior story where you are sent to assassinate them for Baras
    • Rift Alliance from the Jedi Consular
    • I think the new Chancellor might be connected to the Bounty Hunter campaign since you get a female Twi'lek appointed to the position
    No rush on things Ceiran but anything on Rakata, Esh-kha, Chiss, Gree or Killiks? Also, is it worth buying it? Would like an opinion before I go forward with getting it :)

    worth buying? it is worth marrying! really... this is like the essential guide to warfare 2.0 so far. not at Jedi, Sith etc. sections yet but lots to come. not even deep in the book yet. definitely way better than readers companion! and yeah lots on your favourites there is I saw but not read that yet in detail.

    the new upcoming essential guides definitely needn't bother with TOR stuff after this encyclopedia... arms, ships, armor, etc. all in here. well most, not all, but enough.

    for example player ships get size measurements given like this for the BT-7 Thunderclap of the Trooper:

    96x61x80m (315x200x262ft)

    this for all ships please in future guides?

    Oh, this is going to come in handy for all the entry/exit hangar cutscene shots. The player ships are all small corvettes! :D

    What does it say about the Harrower and Terminus classes?

    GREE species entry:
    -language based on colors and geometry
    -whereabouts of Gree fleet unknown
    -early Gree history is a mystery even to the Gree themselves (!!! so their Celestial punishment was memory loss so they forgot the past and how to use some tech, eh?)
    -the Gree were moved back by the quote "aggressive expansion of the Kwa species and later the Rakata" (ok, I give up.. the Kwa started the War!!!)
    -rest of entry is what already was posted to the Ancient Races topic with caste system etc. and more from latest game expansion update!

    ESH-KHA species entry:
    -once expanded across the galaxy
    -even challenged the might of the Infinite Empire and were driven back and imprisoned on Belsavis

    RAKATA
    -practice cannibalism


    so much for my quick read ahead.. now back to chronological order

    Cool, thanks for that Ceiran :) New thing there about the Gree is that their fleets whereabouts is unknown... thats kind of new... wonder if thats perhaps a connection to the events of the Chevin Grand Acquisitions Race where the Chevin Conglomerate are looking for the signs of a return of a Gree space to known space. Interesting... wonder where that will go.
