Oh, the guild has more to it than simply exploring aspects of the force.  That may be the focus of the force users, but the long term concepts would require help from all types in order to survive.  Heretical groups have a history of fairly short lives.  Spies to gather information, assassinate opposition, warriors to assist with important missions or to perform reconnaissance in force, and both to expand the breadth of ideas for the Temple to draw upon as well as being students for their ideals.  The intent isn't to overthrow the empire or anything so grand as that, but to begin a progression based not on infighting and assassination but rather on what is best for the empire.  Sometimes that may be dark, sometimes it may be light, and there may be disagreement as to which is better.  Imagine the power of the empire if every apprentice was not out simply to find a way to assassinate his master but avidly worked to his betterment with the possibility of his own title and reward.

Hmmm... my main, the Powertech Merc, might just be perfect for that then.  I like my little Sithling well enough, but he doesn't have Death From Above or wrist-mounted flamethrowers.  >_>

Does the Temple of L'oriel fund itself through the sales of cosmetics and beauty care supplies? ;D


I like the story, though. It actually sounds a lot like the personal story-arc of sorts I build for my Inquisitor, though never actually RPed...the idea that the Sith Code wasn't specific enough, and a Sith could be more powerful by harnessing passions and unleashing them properly like a blaster rather than letting them run wild like a flamethrower (and definitely not locking them up in a box like the Jedi). End Result a Light 5 Darth, I spent a lot of money buying off Khem Vhal and Xalek.

I thought I should also mention the view of passions.  Fear, one of the main passions of the Sith, is a short lived, though intense, passion.  All passions, though, can empower one through the force.  Fear, hatred, anger, love, joy, compassion or sorrow for instance.  One is never truly free of their bonds if they are bound by fear.  We also look to external passions...for example, the guild founder (Kellot) and myself (Lilliat) who have certain passions for one another that they are still feeling out.  Kellot has basically sworn his passions for her to create a conduit and control for his rage and passions.

Anyway...feel free to PM either of us if we're online and we can get you setup.  Kellot's on more than I am and is a bit more articulate about the concepts.  Just say that Lil sent you ^_^

That's a shame about the lack of an Elliquiy guild, as this other one sounds nothing like what I'd be interested in.

I'm curious, do Empire and Republic players get to communicate and group up/help each other out in this game, or is it more WoW-style where the factions are strictly separated at all times?

You can communicate via "say."  So if you are stanidng near each other then you can communicate normally.  You are not allowing to private message each other or mail.

*wince*  Ouch...I'm sorry.  Hopefully there's no long term effects.

In other news, I've now joined/started a guild.   The Temple of L'oriel, an RP guild built around the concept of expanding the understanding and the philosophy of the Force.  Think along the lines of Revanites without Revan and you're sort of heading in the right direction.

Cool.. and no, no long term effects, it was the culmination of all my recent health woes, and we're all hopeful that we've now taken a corner and it's now officially "Getting Better"(TM) :D

We still have the Eli channel and everything, so can still chat with one another and hang out :)

Apparently, according to several other players, the Bounty Hunter path is the most enjoyable.  Man, I wish I could play.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

No, no, Darth Yoda would say

A lie peace is, only passion.
Through passion, strength I gain.
Through strength, power I gain.
Through power, victory I gain.
Through victory, broken my chains are.
Free me the force will.

Add in a smattering of hrm's and yes's and you have Yoda speak.

I just recently started playing and ended up on "Drooga's Pleasure Barge" because I could not resist its name. If anyone is there let me know.

Sorry darlin', I think most of us ended up on Lord Adraas, an RP server.  Drooga's Pleasure Barge sounds pretty entertaining, though.  >_>

Simply type "/cjoin eli"

The biggest thing is that, as a custom channel it will dissapear for No Real Reason all the time. Generally whenever you change zones (ie, planets or ship) you'll need to rejoin it. It's become an automatic reflex for me.
