Kath Hound seemed a good choice due to being a RP server first and foremost. Then Kath Hound also seemed to have a more manageable population with lower wait times. As for being Republic, there does seem to be a greater interest in people playing Republic right now but that might be due to others already saying they had Republic characters there. If people want to pick a "Sith" and "Republic" server, then I imagine Kath Hound could be considered the Republic server for Elliquiy at this point.
My hope is that we can eventually have enough to either form a guild or at least maybe do some questing together. Potentially I'd love to see a true RP guild form where we could have storylines and such that might involve play here on Elliquiy. That, of course, would be a grand scheme. Though if anyone is interested in running such a guild, please let us know.
