How about that Stormrider lore preview? It played out like a really fun game intro. I also got a weird Lost Tribe of the Sith vibe from them, in a good way. Who doesn’t like Sith? Other than Jedi I guess...POWAAAA UN-LIMITED POWAAAAAAA!!!! Remember that time Palpatine was all “ima kill yur kid while u watch, cool?” and Vader was all “do you even force bro” and The Palp was all “come at me bro” then vader shoulder pressed The Palp into that big endless pit because it was a little know fact that not only did Vader force, but he lifted as well. You would think in the future they would learn to put a cover of some kind over endless open pits but those things were EVERYWHERE in Star Wars, workplace hazard IMHO, OSHA would be all over those like standard boots (non steel toe) in an iron factory yo.

Yes, it’s gonna be one of those blogs...

The only thing I worry a bit about is the jewel on the forehead. In my prior MMO experiences forehead jewels end up looking like moles (if anything) in game. It would be nice if they did something unique, but personally I would prefer a tattoo or scar (probably because I have plenty of both). What? Life is hard as a Regulator, we didn’t just take any geek off the street, gotta be quick with the steel if you know what I mean. Oh young guns, you were like an 80’s hair band and a western in one, and it was beautiful.

I loved the background story. I LOVED the way they are forced to face a Veil storm. I REALLY REALLY LOVED the multiple outcomes from said event. As a player that dabbles in RP my mind was racing. Soooo many story options. Back in the old SWG days my Zebrak had no face tattoo due to a long and sad back story that had him as a social outcast. I love me some social outcast backstory! Then again I also like to bounty hunt social outcasts...or anyone for that matter. What a sad never ending game of cat and mouse, my main always hunting my alt but never ever able to catch him...

The whole being a child until you're like 20 thing was a bit weird. If they do a race intro they should have a Michael Jackson Thriller inspired endboss...or a veil altered race of ghouls...But the idea that it’s the veil that transforms them is interesting. I wonder, if they never face the storm, do they ever age or are they some weird eunuch type thing? Questions, questions that need answers, answers that have questions, beers that need drinking...

The concept art was interesting as well. From the looks of it we will have our little hands full terraforming the lands outside our starter cities because it looks pretty nasty out there at the moment. I LOVE that concept as well. Allowing the players to TRULY (I’m eyeing you GW2) alter the game world and make it their own is simply incredible. And if we fail at it? Veil storm! Start again ;)

It also looked like the TDD structure did indeed reflect being exposed to the harsh veil storms and being built for war. I really really hope CSE make everything in game reflect that we are in war times. Things are generally beaten, battered, rugged, and functional during war times and far far too many MMOs have forgotten that when making perfectly pretty palaces in the middle of warzones.

How about those Stormchosen I hear they are kinda like Jedi, but more powerful, like even more so than Mace Windu and you can unlock them by hologrinding...but that might be a rumor...

Nice job MJ and CSE. Uniquely interesting lore and equally interesting art. Always looking forward to more. They way fans consume info you would think they are printing it, burning it, then using the ashed to make a nice Carl Weathers inspired ham soup which they devour...like I said fan is short for fanatic right?
