I sorta gave up waiting, don't care as much anymore as to when next content is out. I've moved on to new games.
It's good if you've found something to keep yourself entertained But I am glad to still see you here I know Eshvara and Paul mentioned a pause (you too I think in that conversation) and there are plenty that come and go (me included) but where's Random_Ru? -sniffs- I miss Random my partner in derailing... I expect we'll see familiar faces as soon as we hear...anything.

If you're looking to commiserate about how much any of the above suck, this is your friendly notice that I am not the guy/girl/organic you're looking for. Have an excellent day.

Annoying? Never. But I might not be very available the next 6 days of festival (including today, Depeche Mode, here I come!)

I have no clue, Random disappeared.
Hum well, let's say that the writing of some of the chapters sparked very long private discussions. We now have a master in SWTOR popular psychology, specialised in NPCs as well as extensive training in attempting murders on Mary Sues and other clichés. Not that I win all the time, but I try hard.

Not sure what you mean by differences on the npcs ?
It might be my understanding only. From your first remarks, I thought that there were as well things you wanted to discuss about the way you saw the other characters (Senya, Arcann, Koth, Kaliyo, etc etc.) differently than I do.

Hopefully they will pop back in when there's some story content
As for npc's for the most part you haven't done anything I can't see them doing The only thing I would query (from memory) is the Mandalorian challenge (Torian related).
I agree that the code doesn't exactly specify exclusive darkside use, but It's the interpretation many sith make (SWtOR era) and I think a lot of the fanbase also make that distinction -shrugs- I've never had any problem following my own interpretation but the subject (like most) can become quite divisive.

In other news tweaking my stronghold may be becoming a problem
I'm supposed to be levelling my Inquisitor. >_>

Well, I admit that I do not know much about Mandalorians except what I read on Wookiepedia. I got inspired by the Taung blood duel which is usually to death.
The sith code does not specify darkside use at all but rely on aspects that are considered to be linked to the dark side from the very first words. Getting power through passion is not something jedi will allow themselves to do, it is a typical sith thing. However, that does not imply neither that the Force used has to be dark, it would probably be more like a code of conduct.
By the way, to make a link with our favourite doomed emperor, from the moment we saw Arcann turn to the dark side I wondered if the Force he was then wielding from that moment was dark or not. From many aspects mentioned IG, I would not say it was. He kept using the "un-sided" Force the way he was used to, but he had succumbed to the dark side nonetheless. Which would mean that you can be driven by the dark side and use the Force differently, there would then be a difference between what you are and what you use. And now if you add another layer of complexity: Did the dark side get a complete hold on Arcann or did he have control over it? From the difference in him after the Voss ritual, I'd tend to say the first. So what did the dark side exactly have a hold on? Decisions? Behaviour? But not Force wielding? It does not make much sense.
Take the same situation with a character which is a sith but has not succumbed to the dark side the same way but has a hold over it and it becomes even harder to understand and sort out. If someone has a theory, it is definitely welcome.

I am sure I have theories elsewhere, but I'm too sick currently to think straight. I have to approach the Force stuff and light/dark so much but I take a lot of my ideas from the Light-side sith warrior conversations (it gets mentioned a lot that she's not sithy enough in the story and I love the discussions between her and herself (tatooine jedi pilgrimage), with Quinn, with Jaesa and almost every Jedi she bumps into.
I'll work on a wall of text.. slowly, might take a couple of days because sick and tired.

I'm still poking around here and there on the forums, gaming time is spent doing other things though.
