instead of facing Siths like Darth Tenebrous and Darth Plagueuis. (It's fair to mention that Darth Revan in the lore and the Sith Emperor in lore, but not in game, are in their leagues)

The Sith Lords (the ones with the suffix Darth. Apparently, ''Lord'' is just a mark of nobility, it's the moniker Darth that make you a truly Sith Lord) we see in TOR are rather, how to say, classic Sith Lords (which is coherent with lore).

Tenebrous, Plageuis and the Emperor, on the other hand, are true master schemers. (And not scheming to kill their apprentices or scheming to make the apprentice lose his time by sending him killing three dudes on three differents planets, to make another dude go to another planet, as opposed as sending the apprentice to kill the important dude in the first place...but I disgress)

I don't know, I think Baras did a-okay for finding and "training" the ****** that is the Sith Warrior.

Darth Fatass?

I always just piss him off because he's a dick and it scores points with Vette.

Personally, I'd prefer somebody who doesn't inspire the first reaction of replacing my lightsaber with a slice of cake to effectively fight him.

Dude, you DON'T want Darth Bunnyrabbit in this game. Look what he did in Monty Python and the Holy Grail: he annihilated King Arthur's troops. KING ARTHUR'S TROOPS!

I love his voice and the way he talks but I am pretty sure a set of stairs would be all I needed to kill him.

Also am I the only one that looks at him and thinks....duck?

I kinda adored Baras. Yes, he was fat. It was clear that he was not the physical type. A master schemer.

But still incredibly powerful.

About the missions they send us doing.. I found them fitting. The warrior (in act 1) take on a story much like that of Darth Maul. Baras said it himself: we are his enforcer.

That being said... It is the way of the sith for the APPRENTICE to challenge the master. Thus making Baras... not the ideal sith at all. It exists so that the most powerful sith rule. Killing off your most powerful apprentice in... shall we say, underhanded ways, seem to be heavily in conflict with this. But entirely in character for Baras.

No, it's still the Sith way. Masters always try to kill off apprentices when they become overtly ambitious and a threat.

The idea is that the apprentice meant to kill a particular master will be victorious no matter what's thrown at them and the Sith are stronger for it.

That's why I love Baras. He is a true master who spends the entire time teaching you in true Sith fashion.

Contrast that with being Vashs apprentice. Totally different experience.
