I signed up for a 60 day/none renewing subscirption so I could try more than 2 classes.

Heroes of the Republic
Rojavon (smuggler/gungslinger) - from Blakes 7's Roj Blake and Kerr Avon
Dreanan (trooper/vanguard) - Welsh for thorn
Nashebo (Jedi Warrior/?) - from an American indian character from an episode of Kung Fu


Fiends of the Empire
Josra (bounty hunter/mercenary) - from Josh Randall character in "Wanted: Dead or Alive" TV series
Arachnathena - (imperial agent/?) - from Arachnid and Athena
Xoanan - (sith inquestor/?) - from an episode of Doctor Who (original series)

I didn't know when I created Rojavon that the late Paul Darrow (Kerr Avon) actually voiced a sith warrior overseer in the game. I played a sith warrior just to see his story line then deleted her. After she
Click to reveal..
killed the NPC
I lost interest.

I didn't think I'd like trooper but its becoming my favorite. Imperial agent has interesting story but plays too much like smuggler, some of the same skills even.

I'm not sure what will happen when subscription expires. Some people in game think I'll get to keep six character, because that happened to previous subscribers who went free to play. Which is why I'm stopping at 6 characters, instead of 12. I hope it does drop to 6 and not 2. If it drops back to 2 I hope its not random but asks me which ones.

Now of course I'm wishing I had bought account wide speeder unlock instead of character. I'm not buying account wide until after the subscription runs out because I already have it unlocked on 2 characters and buying it to unlock other 4 I may not get to keep would be a waste.

Speeder unlock is ALWAYS only for one character - the tooltip for accountwide is wrong

And wise decision to go for a sub - I do believe you get to keep your 6 characters laugh

This is different, my jedi warrior got his second companion before his ship. My other characters didn't get second companion until they got their ship and the droid that comes with it. Jedi got a different droid first and a female padawan second. Ship's droid presumably be third companion.

My first two characters are twice the level of the jedi and they still only have their original companions plus the ship's droid.

Anything happen if a jedi tries to romance NPC?
Update: somebody in game says that results in Dark Side points, so won't be doing that.

I wondered if the artists did anything with alien anatomy other than skin color, horns or tales on heads, so I took my characters armor off. The purebred sith look like part of his ribcage is exposed otherwise all the species look like humans who dyed their skin.

Latest update made it 2 characters per server for Free-to-play (previously it was 2 characters period), 6 per server for preferred players and subscribers get 12 per server. When my 60 day non-renewing subscription runs out I'll get to keep all 9 of my characters but not make any more new ones.

They are also selling extra character slots now. I'm not sure how that will work with free to play, because normally any purchase makes you preferred.

From playing this game I've concluded that Emperor Palpatine is a sith inquisitor and Darth Vader a sith warrior. Neither of course was a true sith as the sith race is apparently extinct by their time.

Yes, at one point Sith became more of a position than a race. wave

Yeah, even in the game most of the sith are human rather than pure bread sith. Somewhere between the game and the films the sith race disappears. Course so do most of the other sith. What I think is odd is that in the books set after the films the term sith falls out of use, dark side force users called dark jedi instead.

My sixty day subscription has expired. And while I got to keep all 10 of my characters they have been set to inactive and I can only activate 6 of them at a time.

I couldn't make the choice. I bought two character unlocks to keep my darkjedi and lightsith.

Yeah but I don't like how it does world bosses. I was with group that killed the boss but because I was killed, mapped to medic and was on the way back when it died my quest didn't update. Now I'm stuck waiting for it to respawn.
