"For everyone out there that wants to be a squid it is now time to talk about it." *one paragraph later* "Enough of the Quarren, we dont care about them right now because we have not seen any screenshots"
Little contradiction, hehe.
I'm surprised to hear a Quarren is the current Supreme Chancellor. That's the first non-human Supreme Chancellor I've heard of(it was all humans in the prequels).
Seems like the lore has kept pushing back when the Mon Calamari were first discovered. In the EU before the prequels, they said the Mon Calamari(and their world) were found just a few years BBY. Then the Prequels showed a Quarren Senator, which pushed back their discovery to sometimes before the prequels. Now TOR has pushed it back thousands of years earlier. Either that or Dak gets sent back to the Stone Age sometime between TOR and the Prequels.

I still want to be a Trooper(I love Clone Troopers), but Smuggler does sound interesting to party with.Posted in: SWTOR News
One quote in there sticks out for me.
" Other games have let you engage in a bit of smuggling for profit or simulate â€œscoundrelsâ€ as a collection of stat bonuses, but none come close to delivering the humor, romance and just plain fun of being a wisecracking Smuggler who triumphs against all odds."
That sounds like a jab against SWG's take on Smugglers. :)

A poll was added to the post I see. I voted Residential, assuming it's in line with what I like about the LotRO housing that I apparently can't shut up about here. :PPosted in: Feature

The problem with putting them on ships is that players can't come and go to look at your ship. If you ever leave that world and go to another(or just chill in space), no one can come look at your nice stuff. Maybe Han Solo lived in his ship, but most normal people in the galaxy had a house somewhere. Even the likes of Luke and Leia(and her husband, Han) had nice little homes on Coruscant. A space-Winnebago is nice, but it's nice to set your roots down somewhere for when you're not out saving the galaxy.Posted in: Feature

Since Coruscant is already a built-up city-world, I don't think player-placeable housing would work there. The LotRO neighborhoods would probably better, letting you move into existing buildings/apartments. Apartments actually seems like a good comparison, with richer players buying the Penthouse suites on the top floor, and poorer players buying smaller apartments on lower levels.Posted in: Feature

Nevi, the little player communities aren't random loading screens in town. The neighborhoods have an entrance outside of each main town. When you go there, you right-click the neighborhood gate, which opens a menu showing a list of all the neighborhoods/instances. This allows you to visit other neighborhoods, not just the one you're living it. It's out of the way and convenient, but still leaves a lot of room inside for housing. The neighborhoods even have huge buildings that serve as guild halls.Posted in: Feature
As an added bonus, when you purchase a house, you get a new spell that lets you teleport back to your house. When you join a guild that has a guild hall(or your guild buys one I assume), you also get a spell to teleport to that guildhall. I suppose it helps you get back to your house or guild hall when you need something(I assume it has a cooldown to limit non-stop traveling, but I could be mistaken).

LotRO is kinda like what you want, Sleeper. You have instanced neighborhoods(each instance is named like a street) with houses with fenced in yards along streets. You buy a house, you have your whole house and yard to decorate with goodies, along with an address for your home. You still pay a maintenance for your house, but you also have a house of your own in an instance to reduce lag and clutter in the "real world". Each race has their racial-themed neighborhoods, with houses looking like their style.Posted in: Feature
It's a good mix of Open World(SWG) and Instanced(EQ2/FFXI).

Won't a Developer Blog mean potentially more new info about TOR? That's good enough for me!Posted in: SWTOR News

If I recall, some Gran were exiled from their planet as punishment for the worst crimes. They saw it as a fate worse than death, being that Gran are so social.Posted in: Feature
The first Gran seen for us was in RotJ, one of Jabba's cronies(named Ree-yees, 3 guesses on what his name meant :P), which leaves a precedent for Gran off their planet and as "bad people".
