So, I'm level 48, Intelligence has just been dissolved and I'm on my way to Corellia.

So far I have been lied to, double crossed, back stabbed, and my companions kidnapped.

I hate the Sith and the Empire and what they have done to me. I would burn Drmund Kaas to the ground if the option was there.

The Sith have some serious Jason Born **** coming their way.

My question is, when do i get to go Spartacus on the Empire and get my revenge.

Spartacus died and changed nothing. The Roman Empire lasted almost another 1400 years until Constantinople fell.

You don't really want to pull a Spartacus do you?

Very good point. However, Rome was a republic at the time so the analogy cant be directly related.

Its hard to say a slave revolt that lasted 2 years, caused tens of thousands of deaths, brought an entire region to turmoil and brought pretty drastic (arguably) slave reform didn't do anything.

It proved a point, thats for sure.

But point well taken.

Maybe better put I need to go Gaius Julius Caesar on the Sith.

On a side note, I find it strange you say the Roman Empire lasted until 1500 AD (or CA). Post-modern Western teachings declare the fall of the Roman Empire at around 450 AD ish. Some would place the fall of the Roman Empire at or near 320's with the Crisis of the Third Century, but most don't subscribe to that view.

Traditionally speaking, the empire that was left after Romulus Augustus had to surrendered is taught as the Bizintine Empire.

I believe that may be do in part by WHY Rome is taught instead of HOW. For lack of a better analogy, if Mesopotamia is the cradle of civilization, then Rome would be the the cradle of the modern world.

Or simply put, Rome is taught as classic antiquity and the transition to late antiquity marks the fall of the Roman Empire for that purpose.

I don't mean this with any insult, but I would like to ask where you studied. You clearly have adept knowledge of the subject but it isn't with complimentary American teachings. I really enjoy exploring different world views.

Gentlefolk, you both win one internet. You'll have to divide it between you: may I suggest Eastern and Western Internets?

Haha, nice.

Well, to answer the original question, you don't really get to take revenge in any explosive way, but in a very quiet, subtle way. In other words, I'm not sure you'll get what you're hoping for, but hopefully you'll be satisfied with your choices at the end.

This conversation is awesome

More to the point, there isn't a point where you get to rally a group of people to a cause and just go on a killing rampage all over the place in the name of taking what's yours or what have you. At least not yet. As mentioned above, the "revenge" is more subtle, but I'm definitely hoping that you do get to go all revenge crazy once the story gets expanded.

Sadly, I felt like the game totally teased me with the possibility of letting me do this, just to tear it all cruelly away, leaving my character a brittle mess.

But maybe things will go better for you. *sigh*
