Code of the Jedi
There is no emotion. There is peace. There is no ignorance. There is knowledge.
There is no passion. There is serenity. There is no chaos. There is harmony.
There is no death. There is the force.
Code of the Sith
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

Sten and Jeanne go on magical adventures through Dromund Kaas
And his ass
Other fun tidbits:
Nice door opening
(This isn’t even remotely close to done but I am super impatient and I must post the WIP. And also the huge-ass explanation I wrote ; ; )
So as most people know, I’ve been spending a while playing SWTOR. For giggles, I decided to make Jeanne in it—as a Sith Inquisitor. Two reasons:
One, Jeanne as a Sith is both hilarious and almost a little fitting;
and two, Xanthe Elbrick, who voices the female SI, is the closest voice match to Jeanne I’ve ever heard. Especially her snarky lines. (This is a really good example!)
Instead of trying to go specifically light or dark, I kind of just choose the options that fit what she might do in each situation—and thus far, she’s riding the neutral line pretty hard. She’s gotten maybe halfway to either a Light or a Dark tier before going back the other way. Interesting to observe, but man, this game really really wants you to pick a side. I can’t wait until the Neutral gear comes out ; ;
She’s specced as a Sorcerer, which is the healing/damage option, except all of her points are in Lightning because of course they are. I thought about Daylen in the Star Wars sense as well—and, after talking with Amy, figured he would probably be a Jedi Consular—a healing Sage, to be specific. Except he probably prefers to dress like a Knight, because pants.
There’s a bit of a twist in the Inquisitor storyline on Dromund Kaas that pretty much killed me, if only because it fits too perfectly into their family dynamic. So now my mind’s gone wild with AU and overarching stories and asdfghjkl I need to play through more of this.
Also, one more bit that I thought was funny: one of the very first missions for an Inquisitor is to “persuade” (shock the everloving shit out of, or negotiate with) an acolyte to give you information about a death at the Sith Academy. That acolyte is voiced by Greg Ellis, i.e. Cullen.
Now…BioWare has a lot of its favourite voice actors in this game. Jo Wyatt and Adam Howden are everywhere in the Empire, Brian Bloom does a few for the Republic, Gideon Emery’s here and there all over the place, etc. But not once have I seen anyone else voiced by Greg Ellis. Just that specific NPC, for that specific mission.
I’m half-convinced they did it just to fuck with me
ANOTHER QUESTION (yes I know, I am full of them), this time for the SWTOR players:
Getting my pre-order in now. Do I want the Standard Edition or the Digital Deluxe Edition?
(Here, have another drawing of Dibella because wow I have already been going through withdrawals for this game)
(also augh why is tomorrow Sunday, I have things that need to get done yesterday ; ; )
Behold, my characters for the SWTOR beta. |D
First is Dibella, my Sith Inquisitor (Assassin, though if I play again I might try Sorcerer); restarted her so I could play with Abby and Steph, got her up to a level 13.
Second is Eliot, whom I spent most of my time on this weekend; she’s a Trooper (Commando), and she got to 17 before the beta was over. That’s Aric Jorgan with her. He is pretty much amazing.
Third is Rialla, my Jedi Knight (Sentinel); she was my first of the characters and I didn’t play her at all this weekend, in order to try out more of the classes. Got her to 17 too.
Funnily enough, SWTOR was like…one of the only things here at home that managed to keep my mind off sickness and focus on other stuff, hahaha. Such a great thing to keep my spirits up during this whole situation.
