Holocrons and Info Nodes / Faces and Masks; Names and Titles

The soldier tossed and turned uncomfortably in his cot. His sleep was plagued by nightmares, visions of a horrific sort which felt too vivid to be simple phantasms of his slumber. He awoke with a start, cold sweat beading his scarred form. He was fortunate enough to have the bottom bunk at the very end of the lineup in the barracks where he took his rest. This meant that he had easy access to his footlocker from which he could retrieve his cybernetic eye. He opened the old beaten thing and took up the mechanism from its place in the container which held his meager possessions. The soldier pressed his cybernetic augmentation into its place; the place where an organic eye ought to have been, but wasn't.

He peered about the room, his inorganic eye granting him sight where his remaining natural one perceived only blackness. To his surprise, a shape was moving towards him from the entrance of the barracks. As it came closer, the shape resolved itself into the familiar form of the soldier's commanding officer. The man had no words for the one-eyed soldier. Only a jerk of the thumb which indicated he had someplace to be other than in the relative comfort of his spartan cot. The cybernetic warrior dressed himself in a hurry, just as he was taught to, emerging form the barracks in his freshly polished armor. He wore a mask that made him but one among millions.


As the soldier stepped out into the close humid air of the jungles of Dromund Kaas, he found a protocol droid waiting outside of the barracks for him. It escorted him to a large yurt on the other side of the Imperial camp. The soldier expected some sort of reprisal from the camp's overseer. For what exactly, the soldier had no idea. Unauthorized weapon discharge? Straying too far off of his patrol route? Taking one too many rations? There were so many rules. So many regulations. The soldier removed his helmet as he began to understand and headed inside only to find that he understood nothing.

Inside the unmasked soldier was greeted by a sight which made him drop his helmet. He stood frozen in horror as he looked into the faceless visage of something which took the shape of a man but which the soldier understood to be something else entirely. Cloaked completely in black and with a lightsaber hilt attached to his belt, stood a Sith. The camp overseer was lying headless at his feet. The thing's mask was unlike anything the one-eyed soldier had seen, being a trooper of little worldly experience and with few ties to anyone other than his comrades.

The soldier's skin was fraught with an unpleasant sensation, as though the Sith's presence aroused a primordial revulsion from the deepest recesses of his subconscious mind. His heart beat quickened in tune to a painful thumping in his skull. He could not speak, so instead the Sith uttered the first words in their exchange. "Do you know why I have come?" the Sith's tone was level, pleasant, and free of any discernible emotion. It was a stark contrast to the unnatural thing that gave it voice, like an unknowable eldritch fiend speaking with the transcendent cadence of an angel. The speech of the being seemed to diminish the harmful effect it was having on the poor soldier's body.

"No... No my lord I do not." the soldier finally managed. The pain he was experiencing began to ebb away from him as the Dark Lord continued "I am here to acquire you. You are to become my instrument." the Sith reached up to his helmet, removing it in short order and holding it at his side. Once unmasked, it was revealed that the thing not only possessed the form of a man, but also wore the skin of one too, though foreboding tattoos and eyes spoke to the creature's true nature and the corruption inside of it.


"I am Darth Fulcros. You have my name and my face. These things mean nothing to me. They are for your use." the Sith paused "You are Sergeant Holvas Belanian. Do you know why I have chosen you?" Sergeant Belanian, now named and disarmed by the Sith's intimate knowledge of him replied "Again my lord, I must admit..." Holvas looked at the exit of the yurt for a moment. He wanted very much to leave that tent, but he was anchored in place, by both fear and something less apparent to him. "I haven't the slightest idea why some one as insignificant as me has merited your attention."

The silence that followed penetrated Holvas to the core and as he stared into the eyes of the Sith he felt himself becoming light as a cloud, his consciousness threatening to float away from him. His remaining organic eye began to flutter and his cybernetic one had long since failed him. In his final waking moments before collapsing, Holvas heard the Darth's final words to him "That is precisely why you have been chosen." and with that Holvas dropped to the ground, plunging back into nightmare-infested sleep.

Cantina / SWTOR: Canon or Legends?
« on: 07/07/17, 05:31:02 AM »
The title really says it all. I tried googling this question and came up with mixed answers. I'm fairly sure I'll get the same here but I was just wondering if anyone had a definitive answer that I don't have. If I had to guess I'd say that SWTOR is legends but for all I know it could very well be canon. So? Thoughts? Opinions? Facts? I got really excited about making a Rattataki character until I found out that they got hugely retconned into giant-brain-head-people (Siniteen, I guess) in the canon.

Introductions / New to the Game, Server, and Forum
« on: 06/14/17, 04:06:55 AM »
Hello all,

I'm new here and I wanted to introduce myself. I love roleplaying and have been doing it for somewhere around nine years now. I haven't roleplayed on SWTOR before but I thought that I'd give it (and the game) a try. It seems fun so far but I haven't had any in-character encounters as of yet. I found this site through googling SWTOR roleplaying communities. You guys seem to be the most active bunch so I chose Begeren Colony as my server and created my first character: "Fulcros", a Sith Juggernaut with the Immortal specialty so that he can tank. I have some things planned out for him as a character but I'm still working on him. I think I'm reasonably familiar with the game and the universe's lore so you don't need to coach me on the basics there. As of right now everything on this profile is under construction so give me a little while to finish it up if you're interested.

I hope to see you all in game soon!
