    And they just announced a neat addition in the next patch.
    Game Update 2.8: on June 10th
    Nar Shaddaa Casino. For the first time, players are invited to the casinos on Nar Shaddaa to try their luck on the slot machines. Credits can be used to purchase tokens, which in turn can be used on slot machines. Lucky winners will receive certificates that can be traded in for unique rewards that will only be distributed during the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event. This event will run from June 10th to August 19th.

    Hopefully they have some casino formal wear in those rewards, cause Joakeem's wardrobe is sorely lacking in that area. But I probably shouldn't get my hopes up if the only game they'll have is slots. That doesn't really scream secret agent.

    On His Majesty's Secret Mission

    10378432114_91de1e4264_o.jpg
    Stiff and arrogant, Bouris Ulgo is nevertheless a patriot who believes himself the last sane noble on Alderaan*. The head of the planet's fighting forces and a decorated Republic general, Ulgo anticipated a swift return to his farming estates after the Great War. To his surprise and dismay, he was not released from duty and the military was asked to remain on high alert as Alderaan's nobles played at politics.
    Ulgo stood strong while Senator Gaul Panteer, heir to the Alderaanian throne, declared the planet independent in an effort to force the Republic to make amends for signing the Treaty of Coruscant. Years later, Ulgo watched in horror as both the Crown Prince and the Queen met mysterious ends, leaving Alderaan leaderless and still officially outside the Republic.
    It was only when a suspiciously ill-attended council of nobles rushed through a law allowing the return of House Thul that the long-suffering Ulgo acted. House Thul was a noble house exiled for sedition and long suspected to be in the pocket of the Empire; as Imperial workers actually arrived on Alderaan to rebuild House Thul's estates, the planet's greatest general calmly declared martial law and informed the council of nobles they could cease squabbling about the succession. He would be their new king.
    Then Bouris Ulgo began to go mad.

    *(Editor's note - HA, that's a low bar to clear)

    “Yes it would appear so.”

    “But, wouldn't that like, you know, make it really easy to capture him?”

    “Yes I imagine it would be fairly trivial to accomplish that now.”

    “So mission completed then?”

    “I suppose it is, isn't it? Good show old girl! Job well done.”

    “But we're still gonna kill him, right?”

    “Oh my, of course we are.”

    So yesterday I was playing my Operative and joined a group doing the 4-Heroic on Dromund Kaas where you have to get the explosives to blow up the shuttles. Team was two mercenaries and some kind of Sith dude. When the first fight started I just switched to full time healing the guy who tanked most of it. I actually had a blast. I almost never fired a shot from my rifle. I even managed to save the entire team when another group somehow got attracted to our fight and I was healing two team mates from near death at almost the same time.

    I did stab that final boss in the face with my knife. Pretty sure it was the killing blow as well.

    Think I'm just going to make this guy as much of a healer as possible. He seems really survivable.

    When doing the Lord Grantham quest line I was wandering around his estate and went up to a big tower and saw an NPC dude chilling. Went up to say hi and realized too late that he was a Jedi Knight who attacked me! Thought I was screwed as he was much higher level, but I just let Kaliyo shoot him while I healed her. Took a little bit but he went down with almost no danger to me!

    To Kill A Mock King Ulgo
    When we last left our daring duo, the cunningly brutal Bouris Ulgo had just employed his brutally cunning plan to thwart our heroes. Inspired by the well-known strategy of “You can't fire me, I quit!”, the mastermind King Ulgo imprisoned himself! Will Cipher Nine and Kaliyo outwit the usurper king? Will Darth Viktus bring the rightful rulers of Alderaan into the Empire? Will Vector clear the wild animals off the ship before the agent returns? All this and more in today's thrilling conclusion!

    10378447905_dc9701572c_o.jpg

    “How are we supposed to kill him now?”

    “Simple, Kaliyo. All we have to do is deactivate this forcefield.”

    “But how are we gonna do that? It'll take forever to find any sorta weakpoint on the system!”

    “Never fear, I have a plan. Do you see all those projectors surrounding the room directing an energy beam into the field?”

    “Yeah, but I don't see what that has to do with anything.”

    “Well, I have a theory. If we disable those projectors, it may very well bring down the shields protecting Ulgo.”

    “Gee, agent. How are we gonna do that? The projectors are way up there, and we're all the way down here.”

    “I have a plan for that as well. If you go back to the ship, you'll find we have a stock of Merr-Sonn high-explosive rocket launchers that should make short work of those generators.”

    “You mean these rocket launchers?”

    “Yes. Why do you have those?”

    “I dunno. Seem'd like they'd be fun.”

    “Well regardless, good work. Now hand it over.”

    “Aww, I never get to do anything fun.”

    10378468006_29db74c83a_o.jpg

    “You're on.”

    xgMnsFR.jpgA 'Dashing Kathar' At Dromund Kaas - Part 6
    Hey all. Last time...

    09D7c3s.jpg

    ...oh. Oh yeah. Yeah, let's not talk about last time.

    The Next Day:

    98x863G.jpg
    Mako: Hey, big guy. You feeling ok? I haven't seen you since last night.
    Cristum: ...
    Mako: Oh come on, don't worry! I took care of any footage in here and I'm sure everyone was too blitzed last night to remember!
    Cristum: The group of jackass nobles over at that booth twenty minutes ago sure had a good liquor-proof memory seeing how much they laughed in my direction. Shut up real quick after I pointed my guns back in their's.
    Mako: Oh boy. Uhhh, hey, I know how to take your mind off of it! Got it off of my Holonet-link this morning!

    RV3jFKx.jpg
    S0oBtuJ.jpg
    O8s6wFW.jpg

    I dunno about that. I mean, I'm sure there's a lot of honest people on Hutta. Just can't see them in the haze of the planet's pollution and from around the ocean-liner-sized backsides of the Hutts.

    ouw5ie8.jpg

    So, you know how Khem likes to focus a lot on the good old days with his old master and how much Rhaevos sucks as his current?

    8tSWmRb.jpg

    Besides Braden, Mako's big subject for her conversations tend to be around her mysterious, even to her, past.

    GXWjU7w.jpg
    za325V3.jpg
    gFyYupP.jpg

    Hey, if people are putting GPS-chips in pets, I can see it happening for babies too. Maybe they forgot to get that one put in before they lost her.

    Q5ENaXV.jpg
    8f0u7vy.jpg
    XTfG55l.jpg
    Mako: Come on, Crysta should have shipped off Altaca and have our next bounty ready by now.
    Cristum: Sure. Mako?
    Mako: Yeah?
    Cristum: Thanks. That did take my mind off of it.
    Mako: Awww, anytime. Wish you didn't go and burn that dress though.
    Cristum: Huh?
    Mako: Uh, just saying you forgot your scanner when you left your room. Here it is let's go!

    xXU4y57.jpg

    On our way into the Enclave, we meet up with Renegin who's celebrating the success of his plan. Despite the way a certain Overseer and his pet Sith Pureblood were acting and as a certain lady Lord explained, Sith just can't kill other Sith nilly-willy. With his clients now dead for trying to give one of the tagged Acolytes a haircut with their lightsabers, Renegin's now free to head off of Dromund Kaas as soon as he scrapes up the credits.

    1WhbtG0.jpg
    l3XyPUM.jpg

    Inside, Crysta lets us know how badly some of the competition's doing so far while letting us know we've gotten paid well by Altaca's family once the Enclave sent proof of shipping over to Alderaan. And for anyone that's wondering...

    mlFRkt9.jpg

    ...yes, we still get rewards for the bounties needed to enter the Hunt and the ones we'll most likely take for the Hunt itself. Flamer-fuel ain't cheap! So, what's next?

    csrfFqr.jpg
    GTqR0Wj.jpg

    Yeah, we're pretty much used to pain in the neck jobs due to jackassery by now.

    5HnuO6W.jpg

    Though what's a pain about it is that there's absolutely no info about it other then it being a job request from an Imperial Admiral. We could just say 'whatever' via the top option or ask one of two very impertinent questions.

    hWqiNk9.jpg

    A: Why would an Imperial officer be asking for a bounty hunter?

    0hE6FRn.jpg

    B: Why would working for an Imperial officer be bad in the first place? Kinda knew the answer to that already.

    k95UXK5.jpg

    With that, Crysta shoos us off to the Admiral in question who hangs his officer's hat over at the western plaza.

    vsqiR2N.jpg

    On the way there, we run into this guy flagging down anyone by the speeder-point ramp that'll give him the time of day.

    JIC56kb.jpg

    Oh lord. Look, he didn't know it was a dress, ok? He actually thought all that whistling was sincere! Get off his back!

    LaOkLX7.jpg

    Ah, you just want us to take a job for you. Ok.

    9djeomA.jpg

    ...you want me to switch from SWTOR to EVE Online?

    Tmy7KCD.jpg

    Oh crap. I think I'd rather join EVE Online. Ok, ok, I knew this day would come. See, if you're the sort of person who has a cutoff date on old games and haven't played the original Knights Of The Old Republic, Revan's a very important character from it. And how Revan's been handled here in SWTOR hasn't been received well by fans. Some diehard lore-geeks in fact can get very...passionate about Revan and any perceived slight against the character. Well, ugly really. Passionate and ugly. Passionately ugly.

    VPmTeCv.jpg

    Ooops, Sandor's still talking. Yes, the gist of things is that a bunch of Imps have decided a Sith-only Empire sucks as is and decided to see if following the life lessons of someone who's been both Sith and Jedi is any better. So they don't get immediately found out and squashed by anyone who cares about a group hiding out in the jungle not toting the dictates of the Saber & Sizzle Club one-hundred percent, they've been recruiting more and more high-profile people in secret and apparently Sandor's master is quite chuffed about it.

    5vnM6kO.jpg
    86r7Lcy.jpg

    Since both Charnus and Sandor are on the Revanites' ignore list, he hands us a token so we can go over to their camp, pretend to join long enough to meet their leader and then tell him so he in turn can tell his master. Seems simple, yeah?

    NLIAAKq.jpg

    Anyway, let's deal with the Admiral. First though, we're gonna have to get by the help.

    HOn2Ahc.jpg
    AbNiuC6.jpg

    We could say what we're here for but hey, let's see if the Admiral has any strong opinions about immigration.

    Kj56qfP.jpg
    Cristum: 'Bad form'? I just want to know what he's like. Not asking for his boot size.
    Petrak: This is an office of the Imperial Navy. I'm not here to indulge the banal inquires of anyone that enters here for shelter from the rain, smelling like a moist tauntaun due to wet fur.
    Mako: Hey!
    Petrak: If you wish to know more about the Admiral, you can do so via the proper channels. Until then, you can return to the nearby cantina in your dress and solicit drinks as I witnessed you do the night before.

    zathf7L.jpg
    Jsi78uv.jpg
    Petrak: What?!
    Mako: Cris, no! The bounty! Remember we need it! Blood wins if you pull the trigger!
    Cristum: ...fine.

    n6kWzRH.jpg
    cjpgoJ2.jpg
    5SRFnQC.jpg

    Guess the steel walls and doors in here aren't very soundproof. You'd think building an admiral's office would have a bigger budget.

    Leef0Uu.jpg

    What's with everyone around here using 'it'? I think we can clearly see what gender Cris is what with that jockstrap on the outside of his bandage-pants.

    5B2qmxD.jpg

    Oooo, burn! What can we say to top it?

    gVT256Y.jpg
    zkuPmSY.jpg

    Ummm. Eh, Mako likes it, so I guess it's good enough.

    p5XebYN.jpg

    So here's Admiral Fraabaal, the Imperial officer with a mystery request and who's looking for someone from the Enclave who can handle delicate matters. After what we've done so far, I think we can handle whatever he needs.

    ZfVfAdd.jpg

    ...is it too late to edit my last line?

    juk2gAw.jpg
    3RBoZEL.jpg

    'A bit differently'. Another understatement of the year.

    nIYSUJw.jpg
    fqsor6w.jpg

    Ok, he's not gonna leave the request at that thankfully. As he states, his kid, Vereta, had a knack for using the Force and since she was born in the Empire she naturally became a Sith. She picked a poor choice in teachers though in the form of another Sith named Lord Grathan. While the Admiral doesn't quite explain it all, Grathan's gone all pissy that he couldn't get a seat on the Dark Council and is now throwing a huge tantrum at his place. One big enough that Imperial forces are now building outside the perimeter of his compound to kick his non-existent doors down.

    jf47CM5.jpg

    Which would be bad since if his daughter's found there and identified, the Sith will most likely kill Fraabaal and the rest of his family under the edict of guilt via relation. The Admiral's only shot is if someone sneaks past Grathan's forces and takes out Vereta before the siege becomes an invasion.

    qecCfOf.jpg
    kX26a2l.jpg

    Good to know for now and for certain...future encounters with any particular Sith.

    sBygOoX.jpg

    As we leave, Mako stops us for a second to let us know she was checking out her link for anything on the Holonet with 'apprentices' and 'nutjob Grathan' as search terms and found out that not all of Grathan's students are unidentified. This means some extra dough and some Sith-killing practice if we go for their bounties while at the compound.

    4Ctu25M.jpg
    ciL4YBJ.jpg

    Next Time: Meeting a bunch of ne'er-do-wells on the way to meet a bunch of nutjobs.

    Hey, I got a favor to ask anyone who has Sith on JC. If any of you wanna join in on a special update, I'd like to arrange a meeting at the Korriban cantina at around 5PM-EST either tomorrow or Sunday if most people can't make it by then. Just need several folks for a couple of shots dressed either in their finest robes and saber(s) or (if you got the cash) the newbie gear you can buy from the weapon and armor dealers outside. Also, if anyone has an under-Lv10 Sith who hasn't done the Heroic picked up by the planet's shuttle, let me know as I'd like to run Cris through it with you. Anyone who attends can also help me with another shot for the update. Just let me know in here if you want in or online Saturday/Sunday in-game. But shhhh, don't tell Mild. He's not invited!

    You don't have to be low-level to join the shots at the Cantina. The only part I need a low-level Sith for is to get into that Heroic and if anything I'll just ask in General for a newbie to drag me along with them when they go to complete it if no one from here has a fresh Sith character.

    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.

    It's all "Don't mind me. I'm just here for moral support."

    "Please ignore the lightsaber and lightning."

    Man I love this game but sometimes I want to hit whoever came up with the light/dark decisions.

    EDIT: Spoilers for Smuggler on Quesh.
    So after you clear the path for your fellow freelance freighter captains, Captain Ozzik asks what he can do for you once he'd finished delivering this medicine. He had earlier promised that if you do the quest, he will literally give you everything you see; i.e., the entire fleet of ships.

    Cool, I thought. This is how my character starts morphing from Han Solo to Talon Karrde.

    I see the "You work for me now" option, and select it. My character elaborates, telling them to report to Port Nowhere and Darmas Pollaran will give them my first assignment. It gives dark side points. Okay, I figure. I basically take these guys as indentured servants, but there's no legal reason for it and they can quit at any time; they're basically working for me--and still getting paid--because their conscience says they owe me. It's only 50 DSPs, so I figure it's just that that's still a pretty dick move. But I'm willing to live with that. My smuggler will be a generous and open-handed boss. I have Diplomacy, Treasure Hunting, and Underworld Trading as my skills, both for the flavor of being a smooth-talking treasure-finding black marketeer and because those three allow me to search for endless gifts, and Diplomacy allows me, with enough applications, to basically set my LS/DS alignment. She likes people to like her, is what I'm saying.

    And then Beryl Thorne says, "But what about the refugees?"

    Ozzik chimes in: "We're doing important work here. Without the medicine we bring, thousands of Republic freedom fighters could..." He pauses. "Never mind. I can see it's futile to appeal to your better nature."

    When

    the FUCK

    did I say "don't deliver your crucial medicines first"?

    Fucking game.

    So I just ask for cash. At least I get the same approval bounce out of Risha that way.

    ...it's also surprising that condemning thousands to agony and death by denying them medicine for your own selfish gain only gives fifty DSPs.

    Also nested spoilers don't work so SPOILERS FOR LATER IN CHAPTER 2 AND 3 FOR SMUGGLER I know about Darmas Pollaran being Imperial Intelligence and figured that was secretly part of the DSP score, too, but my character doesn't know that yet. But no, that's apparently too fucking subtle.

    YES Shadowen, totally agree. I hated that decision and it made no sense.

    You know what dark side points make sense?

    ZAP!

    But really,

    Inquisitor spoilers
    Zapping the scientist on Balmorra that you need to make the serum into unconsciousness was great.

    Then killing Hiran and Major Bessiker.

    Then watching the scientist do his best to keep it together as my inquisitor went from "murder everything" to being generally level headed and content to let him go was hilarious.

    I mean, hey, he did his job (after I zapped him) and didn't bitch about how I treated him. He gets to live.
