Who else would've liked to join Malgus' New Empire?

I mean seriously - He's like the only Sith capable of thinking further than "Hurr. Aliens! Me kill! Durr!". The guy makes so much sense it hurts.

At every point in the story on Illum, Battle for Illum and False Emperor I couldn't help thinking "Yeah, the guy's right!" Plus, most other characters that prefer advancing the Empires fate through thoughtful actions, rather than "farming darkside points" seem to have joined him.

So now I'm basically fighting for an Empire that despises me (I'm an alien) - granted, it always did that, but why am I trying to kill a glorious alternative? - I'm fighting for a bunch of xenophobic dumbnuts & against the only beacons of reason...

DO NOT WANT

Even from a perspective of sheer power, Malgus seems like the logical choice. Schism-Collective Death Lasers? Yes please!

I couldn't help but smile when Malgus said during the False Emperor that "one of you has vowed to join me" - sadly it didn't happen. I would've gladly killed my group :P

Agreed, I wanted to join Malgus too.

You should probably change the thread's title, as it is a major spoiler and can be displayed on the whole section index.

But I agree with you completely. Malgus is one of the few Sith that treated my Snipers with respect (and not coincidentally, one of the other Sith that has done so is his ally Darth Serevin). It is made repeatedly clear that the Empire's racism is a weakness. Finally, Grand Moff Regus is an incompetent racist who I just wanted to slap.

Malgus seems like the kind of guy that would tolerate a light side sith if he remained loyal to the empire.

Agreed. Unless Malgus's death brings the Empire to realize, "You know... he was kind of right", I think we should have been on the other side of the conflict.

How do I change it? Editing the inital post only changes the title of that post, not the thread as a whole.

As for the rest, I agree completely. At least they gave us options to say it to Regus' face.

I fear that the Dark Council isn't one to question it's own ways. At least some saw the tragedy in it (e.g. Hesker), but they have little say in these matters

I did want to join but never expected it to be an option. The Sith Empire is basically an anachronistic Galactic Empire from the Rebellion Era, which means racism prevails, although they didn't adopt the sexist component (Seriously, look at the Imperial Fleet in the movies, its a sausage-fest). The only thing missing was a COMPNOR (Commission for the Preservation of the New Order) equivalent, which was a paramilitary group equivalent to the Nazi SA.

I essentially told the Grand Moff that Malgus is right about everything he says.
Then I get roped into fighting him.

Count me in, I don't even want to run that story, because my character would just never make the choice to side against Malgus in that conflict.

You know he's destined to lose when he breaks away, but I agree. His inclusive stance with aliens made me sympathetic to his cause. He was a very forward thinking Sith.
