Sith players: If Star Wars was real would you really join the Sith?

In reality? I'd probably stay neutral or join the Republic. In the game? Sith all the way, so much more fun to be evil in a fantasy/sci-fi setting. I am not, nor would I choose to be, evil in real life. So I choose to be evil in a game to let that side "out to play" so to speak.

That being said, would also depend on where I was born. North Koreans didn't choose to be North Koreans, they were born there. And they are not bad people, just their government is. Germans were not bad people in WW2, the Nazi party was. If you lived in Germany, you had to go along with it or face the consequences (likely death). So if I was born on Korriban I'd probably be Sith. What choice would I have unless I'd rather die?

my characters aren't me, no I wouldn;t join the sith, but that doesn;t mean I don't enjoy playing sith side. I find your quiet accusation that anyone who plays sith must be a facist somewhat insulting

I couldn't tell you to be honest! I always think to myself "Yeah! I'd be so ******!" but even when I try to be ****** in-game, I have a little voice saying "Choose the Light Side choice!" so I really don't know!

Honestly said if I really examined my personality...

If born in to the jedi I would start with great intentions and I believe in helping out the little guy and communal sense of respect and obligation. I'm a great person to be around with humor and social ease being my best armaments over my lightsaber and am able to quell silly arguments with basic logic from a stand point between two people that they couldn't see until I pointed it out. Having force powers would only amplify this as I could easily mind trick weaker willed folks in to simply not being so silly over something so mundane as the colour of their speeder and would have the training to remain calm when things aren't going my way or the way that things were planned.

On the flip side of that coin, I have a very strong personality and a very volatile temper when the right fuse is lit. Prone to frustration when things seem to be conspiring against me to make my day more difficult, this would pave the way to being a sith with my good intentions mixed with my burning anger for other things like the way the government is run where I'm from or how certain parties take advantage of social assistance and stuff like that.

In the end I think it would be a battle of light and dark for me and which side would win, I dunno, depends entirely on my friends I suppose.

If they teach me how to fire lightning from my fingers, I *********** join a thousand times and kiss palpatine in the mouth.

Yes, I would be a Sith. America -- the American myth -- is over.
You could move to England. They have a monarchy. We gave their monarch the finger 235 years ago, but you can go back.
