My birthday present... those of you who knit would appreciate the amount of work to create a double knit scarf.

Introductions / Re: New to the Game, Server, and Forum

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!

If you are new here this website is best for you. When I joined it I got a lot of information and I enjoyed it here really.

Introductions / OOC - Hello There
« Last post by Ko'valii on 06/28/19, 09:55:34 AM »
Most of you probably don't recognize me, I was only active for a few months from 2015-16 before life got uprooted and dramatically changed (for the better, I might add). Now I'm here and I'm looking around, wondering how things have been going. I understand it's been slow of late, and that a number of people have hopped over to Star Forge. But I'd like to see what's going on still.

I'm currently playing around on Star Forge with a friend, so I'm not that active of Satele Shan right now, but that character is not RP oriented and it's just PvE content, so it's not like I'm tied up or anything over there at the moment.

Anyways, hi everyone. How are things?

According to Lana in KOTFE, Sith Intelligence has mostly abandoned field operations, preferring technical intelligence collection methods instead.

I designed a Kufic-esque Kittāt font for Sithy calligraphy because I thought it might look nice and I don't want to manually draw the text every time I write Sithy stuff. Unfortunately I have no idea how to make it into an actual typeface I can type with lol.

The first row has all the plain consonants, the second row has vowel diacritics at 200% size, the third row has the W and Y consonant clusters, and at the bottom is a small sample word which says hello!

Galen Tavener had seen his fair share of worlds both during his service to the Eternal Throne and since teaming up with Tergahn and Lucia, but this had to be the first he had seen outside of Odessen that appealed to him. Minus the pirates and Imperials blasting the place to hell, of course. He could see why Lucia had such an attachment to the place, and no doubt why her father did as well...in a different age, he could easily see himself trying to spend his twilight years in peace in a place like this.

Of course, in this day and age, peace and quiet was a fleeting dream...

Ever since the collapse of the Eternal Empire, Galen had remained on Odessen as part of the Alliance; a number of Knights of Zakuul had pledged themselves to the Outlander after Arcann had been deposed, and he had been among them. A number of others he had commanded during the occupation of Reydovan Prime, and had escaped with him when Illuminopolis was all but annihilated by the Star Fortress' solar reactor weapon, had scattered to the astral winds at first to avoid being murdered by Vaylin and her Horizon Guard. When Vaylin was killed, they had come to join him. Other Knights ended up joining mad cults, like the Order of Zildrog. He had even heard of some going to the Empire, no doubt becoming Sith in short order.

Galen often wondered, should the Alliance ultimately collapse and its members return to their former factions, if he would ever find a place in the Republic. Tergahn had promised that if he ever returned to the Republic, he would vouch for him; gods knew he would never be able to return to Zakuul. At the same time, however, he was in his early fifties, far too old to consider becoming a Jedi - given that they tended to begin training when barely out of their infancy, in order to more readily weed out emotional attachments to family or home. He also had to admit that his ego was slightly in play here as well; the idea of starting from the bottom up again was just a bit insulting, though he would not say so aloud to Tergahn. (No doubt the Togruta Jedi Master was already aware of that thought anyway; he seemed to be aware of a lot of things.)

As he stepped down the Direwolf's ramp behind Tergahn, he noted the glances in his direction, a number of them hostile. Dantooine had more or less escaped the notice of the Eternal Empire, but that didn't mean that some of the people here had. He wore his battered Knight armor openly, so he was more or less used to the angry stares. In time, he hoped, perhaps people would look more at the man and less at the armor. Perhaps that time would even be now...

"Welcome, Master Jedi." The militia officer inclined her head in greeting to Tergahn. "It's been a long time since I've seen the Direwolf around these parts. No doubt Captain Zherron - er, the elder Captain Zherron, that is..." She inclined her head to Lucia, who returned the nod. "...will likely think the same thing."

"No doubt," Tergahn agreed with a smile.

"Where is the captain now?" Galen asked. "Out in the field?"

The militia officer glanced first at Tergahn, who nodded, before answering the Knight's question. "He's on his way back from a patrol, yeah. Damned pirates fouling up the wind turbines, or Imps planting bombs on the dam and blowing up the transport tracks."

"Not what I expected from our captain's descriptions," he mused. "Rather modern setup here for a pastoral world. Especially this dam."

The officer snorted. "Yeah, and that went over just great with some of the old timers. They think it's the next step towards turning this place into an industrial cesspit like Balmorra, or a crowded city-planet like Coruscant."

"Have faith, Lieutenant," came a voice behind the officer. All turned to see Eidan Zherron riding up to them; he had eschewed his long coat and hat in favor of his more functional utility vest, his blasters hanging from his belt. "We're not about to be turned into worker drones just yet."

Galen raised an eyebrow at the captain's mode of transportation. Behind him, he heard Lucia speak up. "What the kriff...is that a kath hound?"

The elder Zherron grinned. "I'm a Dantooine boy, honey, born and bred. Makes sense that I ride a proper Dantooinian steed into war. Plus, she moves a lot quicker than my speeder." Though his eyes were artificial, Galen could swear there was a mischievious glint to them as they looked at him. "Still running around with Tergahn, I see. Here to bring some of that Zakuulan justice to the Imps and their pirate scum friends?"

Galen smiled thinly. "Something like that, Captain."

...and if you thought "Military Intelligence" was an oxymoron, whooo boy...

Sith Intelligence is probably not as effective as Imperial Intelligence was. Say what you will about Darth Jadus (...but not right now, only so many hours in the day), but it was a clear pattern throughout the Agent storyline: The more the Sith get involved with spycraft, the worse it gets for the Empire, for the people on the ground, for civilians, really for anyone within saberin' distance.

Still, it'd likely also attract Sith that are interested in that sort of work, and they'd be better equipped to not just torture anything that gives them lip. Probably better able to manage the tangles of Sith politics and avoid all of their operations from getting ruined by Darth Stabbiwonkers types.

But there's a reason why the Republic was able to, at one point, get a sleeper agent into the organization and have him progress to being the Sith Intelligence's Minister's right hand man. Granted, Lana was more of an operations manager than a spy, but if that was the top brass at the time, and she quit, one only wonders how capable her replacement is...

My understanding is that Sith Intelligence is basically its own separate branch of service, just as Imperial Intelligence had been. The difference is primarily in the name, and the interpretation thereof; though they still answered to the Dark Council, Imperial Intelligence could operate a lot more freely without constant Sith oversight. My understanding is that Sith Intelligence has no such autonomy - the Sith are in charge, and you do as they say, period.
