KOTOR Online Editorial - The Power of the Sith

By -

To be a true Star Wars game, there really needs to be two elements: the Jedi Knights and the Sith Lords. With Knights of the Old Republic Online clearly in development, it falls on the shoulders of Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye to insure that all of our readers are up to date with the most recent KOTOR era knowledge. Since Cody already discussed the Jedi Knights in his first article, it's now time to turn our eyes to the Sith and their vile ways.

Unlike the Sith that we see in Lucas’ movies, these Sith are not held to the “Rule of Two”. In fact, the Sith in the era of KOTOR are almost notorious for creating enormous armies of Force wielding adepts that strive to cut through the forces of good. The “Rule of Two” (only one master and one apprentice at all times) only comes into play around 1,000 BBY with the survival of Darth Bane during a massive Sith assault. He institutes the “Rule of Two” to insure that the Sith remain a part of the universe and don’t fall prey to complete extermination.
