Anyone else playing a truly "grey" character?

Here's what I'm doing with my smuggler alt.

Everything he does is random. Any time a decision has to be made (except for rewards and spec) or a dialogue choice...I roll a die. Whatever happens happens. (almost) All biases removed.

For dialogue choices I don't even look at the responses, I just roll and hit the number. Dark side, light side, refusing quests...smugglers take it all in stride.

Anyone else playing a character like this?

My Agent follows his orders to the letter, but will typically go for the more light side inclined options when whatever involved does not directly hinder his objective. For instance, if he is ordered by his superiors to 'dispose' of an asset despite them aiding him he will do so. The ends usually justify the means.

Mind you, I still end up with more Light Side points.

lol, your crew must think your smuggler is very bipolar.

I am not completely gray, but I'm playing my smuggler as a greedy conniving rogue who also can be swayed to the good side and prefers not to let innocents die.

My Trooper is level 23 and is light side 1, but for all intents and purposes could be called "grey". He will follow his orders if he feels they will advance the cause of the Republic, and is willing to disobey direct orders if he feels they are unjust. Most of his DS points come from killing surrendered Imperial Agents.

My sith warrior was neutral up to level 40ish - at which point I realized I needed relics, so I started being a big jerk to everyone.

If you look at the force as all encompassing and unifying... a "Light" Sith and a "Dark" Jedi would be your truly "Grey" characters.

My guy is truly irrevocably evil.

As there are no gray force relics playing as such extremely nerfs your character. It's a design flaw BW needs to fix.

I play a Sith Warrior female, played grey the whole way, and was pleasantly surprised to find that

Thus far I was rewarded with being grey, I can only assume that Bioware will eventually provide grey items for us. Something along the lines that you need 1000 dark and 1000 light to use the item.

Slowly getting to the light smuggler. In other words, his slight lean just builds up over time.

I hardly ever pick my "true" choice....i always go with light with exception of a few times that I simply could not stomach the light side option, even moving the cursor over that choice made me want to puke. In general I dont want to go around being a jerk either.

honestly I hate the nerf that comes with being nuetral but I also didnt want to complain because if you think about it......its actually quite more realistic this way isnt it? I mean I'm sure the jedi make choices that go against their nature, choices they really dont wanna make but do anyway because its what the council would expect of them. They are in fact held accountable to their superiors....thats just life.
