    I can read it if I use the zoom tool, I use a 32" 1080p myself

    If you are unfamiliar with Google Docs, zoom, and give it a sec to refocus.

    If you think the Star Wars movies are the only thing in the franchise than you are blind.

    P.S. Expanded Universe is more awesome than the movies.

    Force Heal was in the first star wars rpg in the late 80s and was included in the first Jedi knight Game.

    P.s.2: Please kill Dave Filoni before he destroy everything!

    Force heal was in KOTOR 1 & 2. And i can't remember the name of the plant, think it was Kolto, that were used by both the Republic and Empire for healing purposes, so classes can shoot kolto darts into people to heal them and call medical droids to heal other players. I don't see any problem with that

    I live to cleanse the galaxy of all Republic scum for my great Emperor

    Force Heal was also in the Jedi Knight games. Also healing probes isn't really screwing with the lore, from what I've seen of the healing it all seems to fit quite happily within the universe (and haven't seen any actual lore nerds complain yet)

    Using the force to heal has been in Star Wars since the EU first started. They haven't screwed with the lore at all.

    I have no lore complaints with this game yet.

    Except that romancing as a Jedi gives dark side points

    NON homosexual romancing. Were Jedi not enlightened enough?

    I still think that's just a rumor. The only information we have going on is romancing this 1 specific NPC gives dark points. We have no idea if romancing your companions will also give dark side points. There's dozens of Jedi throughout all of history that have had wives and lovers and weren't dark side. So I wouldn't jump the gun just yet.

    This doesn't show that romance does/ought to give DS points, but it's the official post regarding romance.

    Easy to give the official answer. But first let's make sure we're all on the same page. Cultures change over time. They move one way then another, values shift, influxes of new peoples or discoveries change what is considered normal, etc. So if we're strictly talking about TOR then arguments based on things that happened thousands of years earlier or later aren't really applicable except to compare and contrast. Our views on modern marriage are not those of ancient Rome, and I doubt in 3,000 years they will be the same. So let's talk about where Jedi and Sith during the time period of The Old Republic.

    For the last two hundred years the Jedi Order has been getting steadily more conservative. The liberalization that was necessary to restock the Jedi's numbers in the century after the events of Knights of the Old Republic II is now looked back on as a necessary evil. In the time that followed there were a number of terrible Dark Jedi who emerged as warlords and worse.

    The two factors that showed up the most often in analysis of what caused Jedi to fall were unorthodox training methods and romantic entanglements. Thus in the following centuries training became more orthodox, with a return to the Jedi Order's earlier traditions. Which Masters were allowed to train padawans (and which could train more than one at once) became more restrictive and romance became one of the most guarded against emotional weakness. As the game opens it is possible to get married as a Jedi but it requires a lengthy process of approval including from the Jedi Council itself. A couple must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt they are both able to handle the strain romantic couples can endure. All children of Jedi are taken from them and raised by the Jedi as a whole, the same as other Force users in the Republic.
    This argument shows, to me, why the Jedi would be forbidden from romance. It doesn't, however, show me that the pursuit of romance itself is a dark-side impulse. It's certainly dangerous because of the presence of passion, but only because of what can happen as a result of the explosive fuel that passion is. Concealment of the relationship via lying certainly could be a DS act, but that's only because of the interaction between the Council's official position on the issue, the mandate to follow the Council's edicts, and the existence of such a relationship.

    I've been hearing rumors that SWG servers will be going down permanently once TOR comes out. This true? Will be absolutely crazy if it is....

    Oh and bout time mmo-champ came back online

    Anyone think that SWTOR will launch before/shortly after/as they close down SWG on December 15th? >.>

    Although that date does still rather late ~_~
