    My Consular is 27, my shit ground to a halt when I went to the other level 20-ish planet to do questing. My Knight is still a baby, though, like 15 or something on Coruscant.

    If you guys are playing through the Imperial stories, though, I kinda feel like I wanna do that instead... except my two slots are taken up now. I was gonna drop like 30 bucks on the game anyway so I can actually craft and what not, so I can probably get another character slot in the bargain for that.

    I dunno. I probably won't spend any money for a couple of weeks, I'm watching my spending and already bought a handful of cheap, <$5 games, and keep plugging away on my Jedi until I pay my credit card bill this month.

    I feel like I'm not very good with the Consular though so maybe not the best choice

    Did you go Shadow or... uh... healy-type?

    It doesn't really matter either way because I feel like the game is easy as hell through level 30.

    Shadow, but I just don't feel very effective with him
    I don't do a whole lot of damage, I can't take much more than I dish out, I don't have anything for crowd control right now... it's not very satisfying

    I think it'll get better once you have more abilities.

    I'm actually really confused about why they made Consular's into a stealth class, they get a lot of base-class skills that are long range, and that continues to be how I do most of my damage as a healer. I assume as you go along Shadow gets a lot of back-stabby type shit? It just seems weird with the sort of Force-manipulation shit the class starts out with.

    Hopefully our powers combined will let us blow shit up pretty quick, because we would both be high DPS classes. If we can kind of over level, I think we'll be okay, otherwise a lot of fights will probably have us skating up hill without a net, if you get my drift.

    So far I've got the basic backstab move, and a couple of perks like increased Force regen once I break cloak, but yeah I don't know why it's built that way

    Gonna be a lot of Sith Lords looking on and thinking this:

    (Warning: this post may be very NSF-56K and worse, full of extra character-dialogue on a scale that exceeds what the Black Talon posts had as part of a little experiment I don't plan to repeat anytime soon. If the image content proves to be too much for the forum or the bandwidth of the average forumer, I apologize in advance and will find a way to host the entire update somewhere else to make it easier. With no fourth-wall text by me and if you don't wish to read my little additions to the game's story, feel free to focus on the screenshots with subtitles within them to get the gist of what occurs in this part of the Bounty Hunter's plot. Thank you and I hope I get at least a small laugh out of this work. Enjoy!)

    xgMnsFR.jpgA 'Dashing Kathar' At Dromund Kaas - Part 5
    DmqDeC4.jpg

    Corridor To Private Bar Room A, Nexus Bar Cantina, Dromund Kaas:

    1Sw1B1d.jpg
    Sgt. Wallax: Remember men, this alien bounty hunter is reported to be armed and extremely dangerous. While he is to be brought in for questioning, do not hesitate to kill at the first sign of resistance or upon my orders.
    Trooper A: Yes Sergeant. It always seems to end that way though, don't it. Killing these hunters I mean.
    Trooper B: Yeah. Heard Delta Squad had to tackle some big lizard. Broke three legs, cracked Jenkins' skull and bit off most of Captain Trulson's fingers before they brought it down. Always seems to happen around this time during some years too, eh? Those Mandos bring a whole lot of hunters over to their spot in the Citadel for some big party and the whole planet ends up goi-
    Sgt. Wallax: Yes, yes, but don't forget that this is OUR planet, not theirs. If the Mandalorians won't police their own, then the Imperial forces will. Trooper, are you sure the alien is coming?
    Trooper A: That's what the reports from the patrol droids indicate, sir. I-wait a tick, I think...
    Mako: Cris, wait! You can't go after Altaca like that!

    ZcRPQ6d.jpg
    nGGFNeD.jpg
    Sgt. Wallax: This is it, men. Don't forget your instructions.

    ANNgQ6p.jpg
    Sgt. Wallax: First sign of...trooper? Trooper, what is it?

    3Q2m7vk.jpg
    Sgt. Wallax: Trooper, what's wrong?
    Trooper B: Uhhh, sir..?

    cnoXP4q.jpg
    Sgt. Wallax: What is it? What's wrong with you lot? Pull yourselves together!
    Trooper B: Yes Sergeant, but...the alien..
    Sgt. Wallax: What abou-

    Mako: Oh boy.
    Trooper B: Sergeant?
    Sgt. Wallax: Y-yes. Right. Ahem!

    Mako: What? Why, what did he do?
    Cristum: Not hot on that idea but how about this?

    Cristum: Not really surprising but still pretty low.

    Tarro Blood: And...and why is he in a dress? When I told you to 'take him out', what exactly did you think I meant? Seriously, what's wrong with you?
    Cristum: Hmph, shows what you know. Guess you're as sophisticated as you are brave, Blood.
    Tarro Blood: Sergeant.

    Trooper A: Hold on.

    f5Wfxgr.jpg
    cioBd3q.jpg
    Cristum: Looks like your men have their eyes on the prize, Sergeant. You two forgot one thing though.
    Trooper B: Oh yeah? What's that?

    1bro74R.jpg
    Trooper B: Oh.
    Cristum: Yep.
    Trooper A: ...you know, when you put it like that?

    k0qPFB3.jpg
    Trooper B: Yeah, we're almost off-duty anyway.
    Trooper A: Time for a couple pints! Or as many as it takes to let me see skirts in the right way again.
    Sgt. Wallax: Where are you two going?! Come back here! That's an order!!

    8Yw3QAq.jpg
    Cristum: Hey Sergeant, when I offered my ammo before? That didn't include my fuel.
    Sgt. Wallax: Fuel?! Fuel for what you stupid beaAAAARRRAAAAGHHHH!!!

    MkQWGLJ.jpg
    Cristum: My flamethrower.

    A few more third-degree burns and several blaster shots later:

    jGJkqmZ.jpg
    Cristum: Guess Tarro got what he paid for. And so did you, Mako. Not a scorch-mark on the party robe. This really is for classy gentleman.
    Mako: What? What are you talking about? I didn't send you that. And WHY did you swap your armor for that dr-..party robe.
    Cristum: You didn't? Huh. The sender's name on the package's attached letter was corrupted but I figured it was you who sent it to me while I was here last night. Still, looks good on me. I oughta blend in well enough to get to that noble and get him out without a fuss.
    Mako: I...wait! You got this in a package here at the cantina. You didn't know for sure who sent it to you and you STILL opened it? What if it had been a trap from one of the hunters trying to get into the melee?! Let me see that letter!

    KLlhDx3.jpg
    Cristum: Fine, here's my datapad. And relax. I knew better then to open it right there. I flew the box over to the spaceport first and kicked it a few times past the bomb-sniffing droids. Come on, this oughta be the private room he's in.

    57oFbeN.jpg
    Mako: Hmmm. Hey, the name on the letter's not corrupted. Just scrambled. And really poorly too.
    Cristum: Mako, over here. I think I see him and his 'sister'.
    Mako: Huh? Oh yeah, coming.

    ChRGiVy.jpg
    Lady Dak-Ah: It's getting late, darling. Perhaps it's time to retire an-
    Cristum: Good evening, fellow nobles. Isn't it a nice night out tonight? Not as wet and muggy as the night before.

    Cristum: What is it, Mako? This looks to get pretty good.
    Mako: Uh, do you remember the name of that Sith from that ship that shall remain nameless?
    Cristum: Huh?
    Previously, on the nameless ship:

    a3ZKys0.jpg

    Rhaevos: Attention surviving crew! This is acting Captain Rhaevos! As it's been five minutes since I've gotten a refill on my drink, I have no choice but to sing "I'll Take You Home Again, Bastila" ONE MORRRRRE TIIIIIME!
    Khem: I think you have had enough already, little Sith.
    Rhaevos: Listen, Shem.
    Khem: Khem.
    Rhaevos: That's what I said, Shemlen. If there's one thing that screwed-up Academy taught me, is how to use the Force to stay completely sobe-hey, see that planet? Bet you five credits I can buzz right by it without crashing.
    Surviving Crew: NOOOOOOOO!!
    Khem: Well, this is it. The big death. I am finally coming to you, Master Hord, and I bring the fool descendant of your hated rival.

    liEDYtb.jpg
    Cristum: Rhaevos. That's the Sith's name. Why?
    Mako: Well, the program I used to recover the name of whoever sent you that dress
    Cristum: Party robe.
    Mako: Yeah, that. Anyway, it finished and...and...
    Cristum: And what? Let me see the pad.
    Mako: No hold on, wait!

    6SWXTDh.jpg
    Cristum: ...the Sith sent the package?
    Mako: I'm sooo sorry, Cris. He must of seen us around the city somewhere an-
    Lady Dak-Ah: Oh I KNEW I've seen that dress before! It was in the window of that horrid little shop just a few blocks from here! I told you it looked so cheap and tacky, didn't I darling?
    Lord Dak-Ah: I'm not speaking to you.
    Cristum: The Sith sent it...as a joke...so this isn't a party robe. It's...it's...across town I've been wearing...

    xOEi2I2.jpg
    Mako: ...Cris? Big guy? Are you ok?
    Lord Dak-Ah: I say, is your friend alright? The poor Caitian
    Mako: Cathar.
    Lord Dak-Ah: Oh, yes, Cathar. As I was saying, the poor Cathar seems to have gone positively catatonic. Er, no pun intended of course.

    wsMJX7j.jpg
    RbcB6c5.jpg
    Lady Dak-Ah: Well what can you expect from such a lowbrow beast wearing a poorly-stitched dress in order to try mingling with us?
    Lord Dak-Ah: I am still not speaking to you!
    Mako: Ok, I'm really getting sick of people like you trashing him. And someone who looks like a mynock's making a nest in their head shouldn't talk about fashion!

    oDefLlY.jpg
    3yjBNEE.jpg
    Lady Dak-Ah: Oh! Altaca, are you going to let this riffraff, this street-rat talk to me like that?!
    Lord Dak-Ah: If the mynock fits...
    Lady Dak-Ah: Oh! You...you scoundrel!
    Mako: Hah, take that!

    Y9q2xGP.jpg
    Cristum: ...gonna get that Sith son of a bitch.
    Mako: Cris?
    Lady Dak-Ah: Oh enough of this. I will not be spoken to in such a way. As for you, Altaca...

    0hIluT6.jpg
    Mako: Good work, big guy! I'll get someone to help lift our new friend back to the Enclave. Cris? Hey, are you ok? Where're you going?
    Cristum: I'm going back to our room. But first I'm going to buy the biggest bottle of booze here. Then I'm going to find the nearest alley, down half the bottle...

    TCUzzEu.jpg
    Cristum: ...AND THEN BURN THIS DRESS TO ASHES WITH MY FLAMETHROWER!

    Next Time: A search for missing children, cults and remaining shreds of dignity.

    Like LS imperial agent is basically a wise-cracking rogue who wants to serve justice and protect people but doesn't want to hurt any innocents

    And DS imperial agent is the coldest operator you'll ever meet in your very likely soon-to-end life, utterly passionless, efficient, and ruthless. Despite being evil he's still like the antithesis to the sith.

    And then you've got a whole big cool organization that you can meet the members of, with throat-cutting office politics and intrigues.

    Then you play the jedi consular storyline, and even the dark side consular is just like a particularly boring librarian, and there's just no personality at all in anything.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    the empire in general is just a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    *gasp*

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

    more interesting setting than the republic

    Although like dark side jedi knight is kinda fun, as like a not really evil, just overly passionate and too talented for your own good sorta jedi

    Playing the councilor as a slow decent into the dark side/not giving a fuck makes things a slightly better as you start just taking the "No, you get to die" route with certain people.
    So sad I couldn't just murder Syo Bykarn. He manages to survive and get redeemed.

    I did straight up kill the guy at the end of chapter 1. 12 pages of dead Jedi masters, but hey, the bastard was dead.

    Quite amused that my councilor still got a seat on the Jedi Council after that.

    I really think the Consular's story was supposed to be a subplot for the main story before the class stories were implemented.
