Can anyone recommend some star wars books to read about the old republic, something about the background of the game? I have 8 hours to kill, so would appreciate something to do. Doesnt matter if its ebooks or not, seems this downtimes gonna be a weekly affair

Thanks in advance to any response

I'm not sure about books that go on about The Old Republic (apart from the current books that tie-in on this game)

Most Old Republic content and of times prior to that have been in the forms of comics, which I will recommend you to read. It gives you plenty of info and knowledge about the people who were in those times and you get to know about people such as Exar Kun and Freedon Nadd or even Naga Sadow.

If you're in Siberia can't you just go out and play with the yetis? Or go troll around in Tunguska witnessing a true star wars after the explosion?

Damn! I wanna be in Siberia.

Every MMO has downtime for maintenance.



Here are four recent threads that can help answer your question:
My last post in the second thread provides an overview specifically focused on comics and novels taking place prior to and around the timeframe of this game.
