Standing at 5' 10, in middle-age and on the underdeveloped side for a Jedi, Alen Stanic is not immediately impressive. His robes are simple and his lightsaber unadorned and basic. But there's a measured, careful pace to his movements that suggest both thought and training, and a lightsaber scar across the left side of his face speaks of battle experience.
It is face to face that one begins to notice things. The wide smile that suggests he's happy to see you. The soft tone of voice that rarely rises, even when in difficulty. The thoughtful look that tells you he's carefully considering every word you say. And in battle, the hard, blank look of concentration that tells you no matter who you are, he's taking you deadly seriously.
But those who are sensitive to the Force get the full picture. There is power in the man, though mostly kept passive and dormant. A ferocious level of self-control and a projection of calm on his surroundings, so pronounced that inexperienced users of the Dark Side might find themselves genuinely uncomfortable in his presence.

On Friday the 31st of October, The Progenitor server
hosted a Halloween party
that saw players come together with some of the most wicked and spooky costumes we've seen in-game thus far.
The party, organized by the player behind Dr. Odolys Bujare
, was hosted at the Market-Sector's Trade Emporium. There was a contest that had players compete for best costume. The screenshots are not disappointing. Some of them are as scary as the Dread Masters themselves!
Head on over to the event forum post here
on the SWTOR-RP Progenitor server forums, and be sure to flick through some of the finalists' images. It might just give you some ideas if you're looking to stomp around in some freaky get-up.
With Christmas fast approaching, we'd like to remind members of SWTOR-RP
about the up and coming opera to be hosted by Aéla
(AKA the Snowmaiden) next month.
If you aren't familiar with the event then take a look in the thread here
and check out the previous article
Remember that the event hopes to raise money for the children's charity child's play
. And if you're interested in seeing what they are all about, then you can take a look at the charity information here
Below is an excerpt from the thread regarding the advertised event:
"Aéla will be returning to perform her annual charity opera at the end of this year
Last year saw a grand turn out of over 50 characters on Voss, and £200 raised out-of-character for the Child's play charity, and I would like the chance to repeat on the successes and do it all again this year!"
From industrious Australian Stormtrooper
hermits, to Princess Leia
undergoing street harassment, to goats singing Star Wars
themed music; we have it all in this week's video picks. So sit back, click on the individual images above, and herald in the rest of your week with funny and interesting video clips from the Star Wars
That's all for the now. Force
be with you fellow SWTOR
With the bounty hunting events
running again this week, we are sure that players will be sinking their teeth into the content added as of the 11th during the game server updates. You can hunt wanted criminals and claim your hard-earned bounties all the way up until the 18th at 4 AM PST/12:00 GMT.
And a few awesome fixes to the game mean that you no longer have to hunt around for access to missing guild ships or wear those coveted Combatant’s Bracers
with unwanted clipping!
But what are you guys up to this week? Are you still excited about the Strongholds
and the new quests introduced so that you can get your guild shiny new things for their guild ships? Or are you grinding away at those dailies so that you can buy something fashionable to wear to any upcoming roleplay events you have planned?
We don't know about you, but when we think about the bounty quests running this week, we think about the lore and bounty hunters such as Calo Nord
, or maybe the more widely regarded and perhaps more popular Boba Fett
. So why don't you click on the links and find out more about these infamous Star Wars
characters! Can you name any other infamous bounty hunters? Leave a comment below!
"There are not many Sith alive today who know of the Galaxy before the return of the Empire. Consider yourself lucky."
Originally a Jedi Padawan
by the name of Lysander Novaqi, Anorak found himself as a promising young pupil of medicine at Aldera University
. After discovering the writings of Sorzus Syn
while under his Jedi Master, he joined the Empire
upon their return in 28 BTC in order to explore the powers chronicled within.
His first post was as a Sith Combatant somewhere in the Minos Cluster
at the start of the Great Galactic War
. He rose quickly through the ranks but after a failed attempt at creating Imperial super-soldiers through Sith Alchemy
, he was taken out of a commanding military role.
After a 2 year long clean-up operation and 3 years roaming the Galaxy perusing biochemical research, Anorak was recognised as an outstanding expert in his field and a powerful wielder of Dark Force power.
While not a prominent figure in the Sacking of Coruscant
, the Cold War
or the Second Great Galactic War, Lord Anorak's expertise provided much assistance to the Empire during this time.
Unless you've been trapped in the Great Pit of Carkoon's
belly, being digesting slowly and painfully, you would know that Game Update 3.0 and its many changes are upon us. Classes and their skills are being completely revamped into the Disciplines system.
Looking at the blog, it appears that Energy Cell and Heat costs have been adjusted for certain abilities. Some abilities cost more but do more damage, and others cost less and do less damage. Each class then has a list of passive abilities and other abilities to choose from. Have a look at the Developer Blog
for a full list of what changes are inbound.
Today's Friday Focus is for all you Hunters and Troopers out there. What are your thoughts on the proposed changes coming with 3.0? Are they for the better or worse? Educate us non-Hunters and non-Troopers by gunning into our comments section below!
Hello girls, boys and aliens of SWTOR-RP. It's the week after Halloween, and if you're as buzzed about the ghoulish festivities as me, then we are sure you're looking for something to pick you back up again after a weekend of scary tantalising delights!
So what better way than with the visual musings of players from the shores of the USA to the isles of the UK, to the wider continents of Europe, the land downunder and the wider world beyond?
We explored the world of SWTOR-RP, other sites and online dwellings, and we weren't disappointed. We are sure that you will not be either! First up, we would like to give an honourable mention to videos suggested by the players of SWTOR RP a fortnight ago. Thus, without further delay we introduce you to the visual musings of Hawkinz
of The Ebon Hawk server, suggested to us by Progenitor player Dennis
of The Labyrinth.
