  1. I'm pretty sure the name was chosen so that the servant would not think any higher of himself. I doubt that's his REAL name. Choosing a degrading name for a servant would also distance yourself from that servant in such a way as to not think of them as sentient beings on anywhere near equal level as those you call by first names. Calling him Maggot reminds him that he is not an equal. That he will not BE an equal.

     

    I can understand that - I just think it's overkill.

  2. A new issue was released today.

     

    The second issue of Blood of the Empire™ takes us to the Imperial capital of Dromund Kaas, as the young Sith Teneb Kel and his companion Maggot leave the war's front lines--only to find new tensions awaiting them at home. Meanwhile, a mysterious Force-user sets her plans in motion on a distant, crime-ridden world. Intrigue and danger abound as the story of Imperial powers continues!

  3. Along with the fact that he's apparently regarded as a good strategist. At any rate, Malgus is probably not Revan from what we can tell right now. His lack of power lust and any political ambitions - not to mention his apparent disregard for the good of the Republic - make it difficult to make any claims on his identity.

     

    I'm in the same boat as you, so I'm not making this argument, but to play devil's advocate, one could argue that Malgus doesn't necessarily have a lack of power lust and political ambition; he only is going about it from another route than through the Sith Empire. Who knows what he's doing in the Unknown Regions? Plus I think he did show some political ambition by frequently calling for change.

     

    Speculation is fun, but it's a huge stretch to start making a claim like this one.

     

    Also Malgus has a Twi'lek wife. We all know that Revan is married to Bastila.

     

    Maybe he dumped Bastila for a younger Mission Vao.

  4. I picked Companion characters. I'd like to know more about how they will live in-universe and how many options we will have with each class. We got a glimpse with the Sith Inquisitor, and it increased my curiosity because I really liked the options shown.

     

    It's also of particular interest since I plan on solo-ing most of the game.

  5. Interesting updates this week for sure... I've been interested in the Malgus character since the Deceived trailer came out a long time ago. His unorthodox ways and the motivation for not vying for power within the Empire (instead choosing to explore the Unknown Regions) are enough to hook me into buying the book. It's also kind of cool that he has a girlfriend he takes with him, although I would have chosen this girl instead:

    It looks from the screenshots that Trandoshans will be a playable species. I'm eager to learn more playable races/species.

     

    Lastly - these are the Aurebesh translations from the new pages:

     

    Darth Malgus:

    Friend to Mandalore

    First Contact

    Yablari, Trandosha, Kalee

     

    The "First Contact" one interests me - it could mean a lot of things, but given Malgus's mysterious choices to run around in the Unknown Regions I'm left wanting to learn more.

     

    General Garza:

    Ando Prime

    Divorced three times

    The Senate is suspicious

  6. This is a really good question.

     

    I voted "no", because I'm enjoying getting the weekly updates and I am totally hyped/stoked for the game, but I can understand the other POV as well.

     

    I noticed a drop-off in the general level of interest after the release target date announcement as I think most people were expecting a 2010 release date. With the game still a year (or more) away, I think it might deter a lot of fans from remaining avidly interested at this point.

     

    That being said, I think the marketing team at BioWare/LA have done an amazing job so far. The hype for this game is almost palpable still, despite the delayed release date, and I think it has as much to do with the marketing techniques as it does the Star Wars franchise tag.
