So, Which Side Are YOU On?

I'm surprised nobody made a thread on this yet. The ultimate question that will decide your role in the grand events of The Old Republic and the consequences thereof.

Are you with the Jedi? With the Sith? Do you hate both sides and want to play it solo? Well you sell your services to the highest bidder?

And why? Do you match their philosophies? Do you just find them cool? Do you think you'll get more goodies on their side?

Pretty sure I'll end up rolling a Jedi at first. They just match my personality, I find it a lot harder to play Dark side in KotOR and other games than I do to play the good guy.

Probably Jedi, but I'd like to see which sides there actually are before deciding.

I'm with Moeller, my natural instinct is to do the "Right" thing, and whether I'm roleplaying or not I usually go Jedi

My main will probably be a male human Jedi. With Auburn hair and a goatee, and a blue lightsaber, and will be a blatant ripoff of someone from the films. That being said, I'll probably make a Sith alt. Actually, my main'll have black hair. They always do.

Agree with adamqd, going to do the "Right" thing and join with ... Sith
What's the difference between Non-aligned and Freelance? I understand the former are those that are not going to play the game, right?

I intend to create two characters: one a Jedi with the Republic, and one a Sith from the Sith Empire. I plan on playing each of them as following their respective paths for a while -- the Jedi making exclusively light choices while the Sith makes exclusively dark choices -- and then have them swap, with the Jedi falling to the dark side and the Sith being redeemed. It will be interesting to see the consequences of their actions within their respective governments.

Of the two "sides" (Jedi/Sith) I prefer to go badass and play Sith, but what I'm really looking for is some confirmation on what other classes will be available. Bounty Hunters, Assassins, Smugglers etc. Not everyone wants to be an UFU (Uber Force User).

Sith. I like the lightning attack and red sabres.

I've always preferred the dark side in SW games...and with the Sith faction being an Empire, ruled by an Emperor - it'll be impossible to resist!

Also, the Sith officers have nicer uniforms than the Republic!

Yoda. Just because he's mean and he's green. Seriously though, I'm hoping for some other classes like Zak listed above. Bounty Hunter or Smuggler would be the top two for me. I hope TOR doesn't focus solely on the Force Classes. That would be kind of silly.

As for Bounty Hunter or Smugler: while all the Jedi and Sith are running around with their "glow sticks", I'll by making my way in the galaxy.

Despite this being the age of Jedi and Sith, when they were, I suppose, prominent, they were NO WAY the most populace group in the galaxy and Ihope this game reflects that. I understand that the glow sticks will be the major draw for a lot of players, but I suppose I just want an experience where that kind of power is earned (and can be lost) through working at it, not granted from the start.

Sith all the way. Nothing better than running around in the JK series Force Storming a room full of 'troopers, watching them bound off stuff like ragdolls, or Force Crushing your opponents in KOTOR2.

Exile: "You want to walk off the egde of the platform"
NPC: "Yes...its the quickest way...to the ground.."

Freelance do gooder, because if the universe has to be black/white, why not be nice? FTR: my choice has nothing to do with goodies always wining in SW, nor with the sith fetish of putting colloured sticks into their friends

Probably Freelance/non-aligned. Learn both Light and Dark and use them accordingly making the choices that I think are right. Neither side is perfect, so I think that the grey (if there is one) is probably the best option for me.

If there is no option for that, I am gonna have to go with LS Jedi

I'd probably be a Sith, but, like Jae, I'd like to see what sides there are to choose from. If anything, I might be a Mandalorian trained to be a Sith, doing freelance merc work for anyone and everyone. Includes being an assassin.

I'll be a Jedi. My personality matches with them. Though I probably will be like Qui-Gon Jinn, follow the order but "do what I must" even if it means to defy the Code.

Shouldn't the option be "Republic or Sith"

since you can't choose anything else?

Non-alignment, for this very reason, Sabre. However, if the main story won't allow for a neutral/Gray Jedi path, I'll probably end up going with the Jedi, seeing as how I normally play light-side.

Seeing as how you *have* to choose a faction, I'll be siding with the Republic. You can still have a little evil fun here and there, and you can be a Jedi. Far better than becoming a Sith
