Hello and welcome to the Let's Play Star Wars: The Old Republic thread for the four Republic classes. This thread is a companion to Moon Slayer's esteemed effort to explore SWTOR, alongside PoptartsNinja, Catsworth and Weaponboy. SWTOR is a faction-based MMO with four Imperial and four Republic classes, each with their own story alongside faction-specific content.

Since the original thread is already covering the four Imperial classes, and since four playthroughs is already a lot for one thread to bear, the Republic classes have been split off into their own thread. Much of Moon Slayer's OP has been lifted and repurposed here, but be sure to check out the original for a more thorough and complete introduction to the game!

Moon Slayer posted:

Star Wars: The Old Republic, is an MMORPG developed by Bioware and released in December 2011. It takes place roughly 300 years after the original Knights of the Old Republic and 3,500 years before Episode 4. It is unique among MMO's in that it attempts to tell an RPG-like story throught the game. Allmost all quest givers are voice-acted and there are cut scenes, companions, all that good RPG stuff.

WampaLord's KotOR 1 LP
Scorchy's Knights of the Old Republic 2 LP A fantastic LP even if you've already played the game.

The Story So Far:
After the Great Hyperspace War, the Sith Empire was destroyed by the Republic and Jedi. The survivors fled to a distant corner of the galaxy, landing on the planet Dromund Kaas. There, a new Emperor arose and devoted his people to rebuilding their lost empire. A couple thousand years later, after the Mandalorian Wars, two Jedi named Revan and Malak stumbled across Dromand Kaas while pursuing retreating Manalorians. They met the Emperor (the same one who fled Korriban, who used the Dark Side to become immortal somehow) and fought him. It's not known what happened after that, but Reven and Malak, now calling themselves Sith Lords, returned to the Republic, found the Star Forge, and started the events of Knights of the Old Republic. Then Knights of the Old Republic II happened.

After that, 300 years of calm and rebuilding followed, with the Republic and Jedi Order bringing themselves back to where they were before the Mandalorian Wars. However, the Sith Empire's plan finally kicked off with a massive invasion of the Republic. The Great Galactic War raged for the next 28 years, on a massive scale, ending in a stalemate. The Treaty of Coruscant basically divided the galaxy in two between the Republic and Sith Empire. Now, both exist in a state of cold war, fighting proxy battles on various planets and engaging in border skirmishes.

The game's story starts ten years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant.

The Game
Like many MMO's, The Old Republic has two factions, the Republic and the Sith Empire. Each faction has four classes, and each class has their own unique storyline and quests.

The game takes place on various planets in the Star Wars universe. Each planet has it's own quest chain, with various side quests related to that.

SPOILER POLICY
No spoilers for EITHER faction's storylines! Tagged or untagged! None, zero, nada! Updated, since people may want to read both threads. Planetary quest spoilers are also verboten. However, discussion of KotOR 1 and 2 may be untagged, since this game is going to spoil that plot for anyone who hasn't played them (and you really should have, you are missing out).

Feel free to discuss any and all game mechanics as well, since I have been really lazy on mentioning them in my updates.

And please none of that “oh you don't know how right you are ” poo poo.

A Personal Appeal
This is a Bioware game, a Star Wars game, and an MMO, three things that can lead to Bad Threads. Go back and read through the original TOR thread in Games if you don't believe me. It was lots of people very angry at each other and gratuitous overuse of the world “objectively.” So I'm asking nicely: please try not to turn this thread into a shitstorm of pro- and anti- Bioware/this game posts. Debate is good, disagreements are good, shitposting is not good, derails are not good unless they are interesting or funny. Thank you.

We already have four brave volunteers to provide the four Republic classes. Each of us will be writing our particular playthrough slightly differently, with different approaches to reader participation and voting should there be any.

And with that our quest(s) begin!

For the Republic!

##Begin Log##

Well, looks like time to start a new journal.

Captain’s Log, entry #001
Stardate: A few minutes off my worst run of bad luck yet.

Here I am again. Figured I better put down as much as I can now, while it's fresh in my memory. A nice, clean break. A little too clean for my tastes – I should’ve known the credits were too good. Gun-running’s good work, and I’ve got the sort of debts that make you jump at a deal that’s a little sweet.

I’m getting ahead of myself again. Let’s get back to my latest bad hand.

It all started earlier today, when I punched my way through the mess in orbit over Ord Mantell…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDtW7HKcJh0

A nice, easy job. Just haul a load of military-grade blasters through a warzone while both sides take pot-shots at me and park it in some quiet little port out in the sticks. Payment on delivery. I didn't know who the client was exactly, but my contact explained the guns were going to be pointed at the separatists, not the Republic. Maybe my army days have left me a little soft-hearted when a mission promises patriotism plus a paycheck.

Whatever the reason, I took the job and the blasters and blew through the orbital space-battle without stopping. I found the landing pad, dropped struts, and for a while there everything was looking up.



Welcome to Ord Mantell, population: disgruntled.

Skavak was my contact at the point of delivery. I didn't know just who he was supposed to haul these blasters to, and I didn't care to ask. So long as he had the credits, I should've been off that planet in no time.



That tattoo was the first warning sign. I should've took off the moment I saw the thing, yeesh.

quote:

Quinine: Who are these people? What are they after?

Skavak: Separatists want to break away from the Republic. Judging by all the explosions, they’re serious about the idea. Sounds like the bombing is getting closer. The separatists will be right on top of us any minute.


If this story ended here I’d be writing this log over a steak dinner and a bottle or three of Corellian red. That wouldn’t be enough fun though, so here comes trouble…


quote:

Skavak: Woah! Slow down, slow down, Corso. What are you talking about?

Corso Riggs: They deployed some kinda remote control stations. Hijacked the cannon’s targeting computer. drat separatists just destroyed an incoming Republic transport!

Quinine: You got a name?

Corso Riggs: Huh? Oh—Corso Riggs. I’m with Skavak. Nice to meet you. With those remote control stations, the separatists can override the air defense cannon’s computer—turn that firepower against us any time they want!

Skavak: That’s bad news, Captain. The separatists will blast you out of the sky if you even think about taking off.

Corso Riggs: The separatists have remote control stations all over the area. You’ll probably have to hit several before they lose control of that cannon.


What can I say? I had my priorities straight.

quote:

Skavak: Let’s move, Corso. We’re running out of time.



Soon as they walked away I got this funny feeling. Like I’m never going to see her again.



Leaving the hangar I could see what they wanted all the blasters for. There were still some bits of village left standing, after all. Maybe another artillery barrage or two and the Republic would classify the village ‘saved’.

My first contacts are friendly. By their uniforms they were Mantellian scouts seconded to the Republic, which has got to be a pretty sorry job in the middle of a civil war. Still, they had some good cover, and I’m never one to say no to ducking my head down for a minute.


quote:

Sergeant Blyes: You look like you know your way around a blaster. Wanna be a hero?

Quinine: Tell me what I can do.

Sergeant Blyes: Guns. And someone who knows how to use ‘em. A crack separatist militia has taken over this village, so we’re not talking dumb grunts and farmers.

quote:

Quinine: Any idea on how to solve that problem?

Sergeant Blyes: I figure I’ve got one option left: ask you for help. My mission is to deliver recon on this village, but I can’t report anything through this interference! I need those separatist jammers neutralized—so if you’re headed into the village anyway, maybe you can handle it for us. If you waste those separatist jammers, report back here. I’ll see if I can’t requisition some equipment you could use.



Normally I don't do commando raids for charity, but since I was stuck gunning my way through the village anyway to switch off that air defense cannon, I figured I might as well do the working stiff a solid.



Besides, who doesn't like watching expensive stuff that doesn't belong to them explode?



My good deed for the day done, I tracked down the place the separatists were broadcasting from. It wasn't too hard, just look for the house with the military-grade antenna array on the roof.



Security was a bit thin. It's not like they were expecting me, but if this was the network hub for their big guns then maybe post more than two guys.



They weren't even heavies, just some arts-and-crafts wannabes working on the latest advertising push for the glorious revolution. Why is it rebels are always so image-conscious?

Looks like I'd found the right place, at least. This kind of hardware couldn't come cheap - a combination receiver/transmitter decrypting military transmissions and reprogramming air defense networks? Cracking this nut meant overcoming some of the best network security in the business.



I handled it with my usual soft touch.



Of course, just as I'm admiring my work, my comm starts buzzing and I start feeling all the hair on my neck stand up.


quote:

Quinine: Is my ship alright?

Corso Riggs: For now—but maybe not much longer! Separatists are busting into the hangar! We’re giving them a warm welcome, but we could use a hand! Skavak, get over here! Help me seal this hangar door! Skavak? What are you—

Typical.

You don’t need to tell me when a deal’s gone south. My scars started to itch the moment that kid’s holo cut out. Even so, Blyes was on the way, and I figured if there was trouble ahead he might be able to pay me back.


quote:

Sergeant Blyes: Thanks to you we’re cutting through the separatist interference. Be reporting back to base in no time. Here—A little something from our private stock. Watch your hide out there, hero.



It’s amazing what a new blaster can do for your confidence walking into an ambush.



The seps I found combing the hangar weren’t expecting me. Looks like they’d already done whatever they’d come in to do and these were just a few stragglers cleaning up the mess.



I can’t say I was in much of a mood to talk it out, though.



Corso wasn’t dead. Kid must be tougher than he looks the way those three guests had worked him over.



And right there. That's when I hear the thrusters powering up, and I know my luck's turned sour.




quote:

Quinine: That scum stole my ship!

Corso Riggs: He took all the weapons, too. He and the separatists must have been planning this all along!

Corso Riggs: Hang on… where’s Torchy? I don’t believe this! Skavak stole my blaster!

Corso Riggs: Torchy’s a genuine BlasTech ALT-25 with magnatomic adhesion grip and side-mounted rangefinder. She’s too good for Skavak.

I want it stated for the record that keeping a straight face while Corso complained about his missing blaster while I watch my pride and joy fly away with all my hopes, dreams and credits was probably the hardest part of this whole day.

quote:

Quinine: We can’t let him get away with it.

Corso Riggs: He’s not getting away with this! C’mon… c’mon… pick up, blast you!

quote:

Quinine: Bring me my ship back and I’ll consider forgiving you.

Skavak: This rust-bucket handles like a drunken dewback, but I like it. You know the saying—finders keepers.

quote:

Quinine: I think you’re celebrating a little early.

Corso Riggs: It’s no use—he cut the comm channel. He always was good at making an exit.

Corso Riggs: Skavak stole my best blaser, but I guess it’s not as bad as losing a whole starship. I feel for you, Captain.

Corso Riggs: Listen, Skavak and I were working for a guy named Viidu. When he finds out Skavak’s a separatist, he’ll want revenge just like you.

Corso Riggs: Do yourself a favor and go talk to Viidu in Fort Garnik. I guarantee he’ll help get your ship back.

Quinine: Who exactly is this mysterious boss of yours? How can he help?

Corso Riggs: Viidu is the “King of Cargo.” There isn’t a payload that comes to Ord Mantell that doesn’t pass through him.

Corso Riggs: Viidu’s a smart guy with connections everywhere. If anybody can find your ship, it’s him.

Corso Riggs: I have to lock down this hangar, but I’ll send Viidu a holo and tell him what’s up.


Captain.

Sounds a bit stupid without a ship, doesn’t it?



Well, that’s the heart of it. I’m a smuggler who can’t smuggle, outplayed by a punk with some embarrassing ink and now my only hope is a backwater cargo foreman whose shipment I lost.



Better start dressing warm. Something tells me I'm going to be doing a lot of walking from now on.

Female Darkside Twi'Lek named R'andayn

Personality: Space Libertarian

Somewhat of a mirror-image of Mort, I guess. I want to see Mort's utter disgust when they eventually meet. Twi'Lek because... Honestly, I picked a random race.

e: Added an apostrophe to the name, it's Star Wars after all.

Can I come out and play?

Hmm, Jedi Knight:

1 - Male, so we get the full David Hayter experience naturally

2 - Mirialan, it's not easy being green, but you get decent ink at least

3 - Light Side; yeah it's the "boring" option but it's kind of hard to bring myself to vote for being a real rear end in a top hat with a Jedi Knight. However...

4 - F, Nothing says you can't be SARCASTIC about it. If there's anything about the Jedi Knight storyline that's held true so far in my playthrough, it's that you wind up surrounded by Republic morons. Obviously the best thing to do is inform them of their meatbag moron status, so they may at least make adjustments if possible. Rules-wise, I asked that we be light side, not good little worker drones; if it's a stupid rule, break that sucker. Oh, and form attachments like mad as a proper gently caress you to the prequel Jedi.

EDIT: Also, for the smuggler playthrough, if at possible take the "talk your way out of trouble" options at every opportunity, they are funnier than hell.

Good to see the other side popping up. Text is pretty miniscule in those screenshots though. Can it be scaled up a bit to something more easily readable?

Voting!

Female, Miralukan cause I always liked Visas for some reason.

Light Side, but gently caress the Jedi. She can get more helpful poo poo done by following her own rules.

Female. Y'all need women up in here.
Miralian.
Dark side.
gently caress the System. Both, if possible.


Also, do it all in the most flippant and sarcastic way possible.

Male, (bearded - Jedi have beards, dammit) human, light side, option B. In fact, try to make it though the game without picking a single dark side point. Ever. Because I like to watch others suffer why not?

So Choices:

Body Type 4 (if male)

And the Trooper should totally reroll as FemShep (and a Pureblood Sith, you can buy the unlock with the free points the game throws at you if you're subscribing for the duration of the LP)

Sweet, glad to see this underway.

I only have one request: be a ladies' man, or mens' lady, which I guess requires Dark Side

Edit: \/\/\/\/ C obviously

Actually that reminds me, Since this a bioware game there is one more question I need to ask.


Does Our Jedi gently caress:

A, No One- The Jedi Code is there for a reason
B. Our one true Love- Dammnit man I have needs!
C. Everything on two legs


AKA the how much do you hate me vote.

I vote for maximum pig with the Jedi so let's go with C.

The Sith have already given us a light-sided male Sith Warrior, so it's only fair the Jedi endure a dark-sided female Jedi Knight, race is whichever according to the rest of the votes. D for personality, since being a reluctant Jedi gives you more opportunities to point out weird stuff the Jedi do and odd writing quirks.

I cannot comment on your sleeping arrangements, since the Smuggler has been given a glass house from which to throw stones when it comes to discussing others' promiscuity.

Edit: VVVV Yeah, I'll take a vote on that when I reach that point, since I can play both ways easily enough.

You've got the Smuggler voice down. Very well done.

I'm glad the Republic thread has started. I've got all the Republic classes in at least the mid-twenties, unlike my Imperial characters that are mainly still on Dromund Kaas. It's nice not to have to worry as much about spoilers for stuff I haven't done yet.

Will you be taking votes on the Smuggler's Advanced Class, or has that already been decided?

Female Darkside Twi'Lek named R'andayn

Somewhat of a mirror-image of Mort, I guess. I want to see Mort's utter disgust when they eventually meet. Twi'Lek because... Honestly, I picked a random race.

e: Added an apostrophe to the name, it's Star Wars after all.

I'm going to second this one.

Edit: But Niralukan as someone said.

To be fair, you could also run with a Light Side and Mort would probably still be disgusted because of slavish adherence to the Jedi. And if we're playing basically as the Anti-Mort, Mirialan is a better bet for a species than Twi'lek.

Female Darkside Mirialan because they're neat and Twi'leks ruin hoods. Won't somebody think of the hoods!

I feel like Miriilan R'andayn is the way to go here.

I also feel like we're missing something by not having the smuggler named Murtaugh but it's not a huge deal.

e: oh god the moustaches in this game.

Female Darkside miralukan, because I always liked visas.

As for personality E, screw the jedi and their dumb rules half the time they seem like the cause of most of their problems.

I don't really care about the race/gender combination, but I vote:

E gently caress the Jedi ways, those guys are chumps!
C While we're loving the Jedi ways, let's gently caress everything else too. I'm sure he's constantly on double secret probation anyways. Might as well enjoy it before we get thrown out of the Order.

This sounds perfect.

Glad to see this finally getting off the ground. A reminder to anyone looking to play along that we are all on the Dalborra server. At some point in the future it'd be neat to get a group of people together and take down world bosses or something, either on the Imperial or Republic side.

Female Twi'lek, Darkside, gently caress the Jedi and anything that moves.

Female darkside something or other, because seriously I'll be damned if I know what any of those races other than human and twi'lek mean.

But gently caress the Jedi and their dumb rules, and gently caress everything else while you're at it. Jedi are stupid and their code is stupid. No emotion and no passion? Sounds boring as poo poo.


e: actually make her a Twi'lek because then she's like bizarro-Vette from the Imperial LP.

And for completeness...
Sith Pureblood: Red human.
Chiss: Blue human.
Cyborg: Cyborg human.

Yeah, tragically racial options are rather underwhelming in SW:TOR. It's a pity really, I'd have happily paid a little extra in the game's cash shop to have a Wookie smuggler that replaces all my dialogue with growls and grunts.

But then you'd have two Wookies on the same ship, and that's only ending one of two ways: sticky or bloody.

Now that I know all that I'm tempted to have you make the jedi a Miralan (green human) named Mrs. Kirk, but I'm sticking with Bizarro-Vette. Could even name her B'zarovet
