I'm a Jedi because I'd rather fight for good than for bad. Plus I wanted to use Mace Windu as my avatar because Sam Jackson is my favourite actor, and it'd look strange me being a Sith with a good guy as my avatar.

I became a sith after about 700 posts. I became bored and frustrated with the lack of action and intrigue. Now I am a Sith Lord, or something. That, and apparantly I am a bad bad bad person. :D

well, with a name like darthvyn, it's gotta be sith.

i dunno, i just have a fascination with this subset of force adepts. there's something grandiose about falling to the temptations of the dark side that is interesting. its the baser, animalistic, survival at any costs, powered by the primal emotions side of the force!

I am a Sith (And always will be) because I have always liked the Sith, and their powers are not limited by good. (Force lightning, etc.) I also prefer blood red lightsabers... :evil:

Because I'm truely evil. Plus Sith get a better wardrobe then the goodie goodie jedi's. Who wants to dress like a monk, when you get the option of cool black robes, black leather, black armor, and black cloaks, with a nice red lightsaber to accent the outfit. Not to mention the amount of people that dislike JJB, it's sort of revenge to make him a Sith. Not to mention that he is responsible for the rise of the Empire, and the fall of the Jedi, from a certain point of view. Plus the Force Lightning is a cool perk. :evil: :D

yeah, the red lightsaber is really cool, although i've always liked the idea of a sith with a blue lightsaber - that's why i changed my old avatar (darth maul eyes) to blue instead of red. i think it would look cool to have a sith with a blue lightsaber.

Cause Jedi's are weenies, and stuff like that and blasters are "dishonorable". Sith don't care, anything that gets the job done is fair game. Hiring bounty hunters, killing innocents, all that other fun immoral things that Jedi's frown upon. :)

Don't forget your total closed minded nature whenever anyone presents facts and information that totally makes your arguments moot. You're the one that actually isn't comfortable looking at the big picture. So, if you consider that evil, you're fooling yourself. But that's nothing new, right? :rolleyes: :D

Answers to your 2 questions:

#1-- Jedi can't use Force lightning because it's the most horrific and painful thing a victim can endure--and it's a purely offensive tactic. Jedi only use the Force for knowledge and defense, remember? ;)

#2-- Yes, Exar Kun did have a blue lightsaber. And in Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight, most of the Dark Jedi had a variety of lightsaber colors. It was originally thought, in EU anyway, that your lightsaber color didn't determine if you were good or evil, because heroes like Leia and Kyp Durron both had red sabers. But in one of the AOTC documentaries, Lucas said that all bad guys always had red sabers, and good guys were blue or green, with the occasional yellow, orange, and purple. :D

I have yet to hear an argument that makes my points entirely moot. While some forumites, such as Caesar and Tycho (just to name a couple, though there are certainly more) have had some very interesting viewpoints that I actually do take into consideration, on the whole I have yet to be dissuaded from my assertion that the Prequels are A) poorly written and B) could have (and should have) been far better than they are.

So, once again to your own closed ears, I am extremely open-minded, enough so as to be willing to lay down my Lucas worship for a few moments to evaluate what I see in front of me based on itself, not on my preconceived desires of fandom. Your tactic of attacking the messenger on a personal level instead of the message itself is an age old diversionary tactic to draw attention from the issues themselves. Give it up.

I think I picked Sith out of the sole reason that my original avatar, the Tusken Raider, were savage characters in ANH (but highly comical in TPM). Of course they have nothing to do with the Sith or the dark side of the force.

I guess "sith" seems to fit perfectly my whammy avatar. Whammies are evil. They take away all your cash and prizes. Four of them knocks you out of the game. Stay clear of them.

Come to think of it, I am an idealistic kind of person and picking "jedi" would be a natural choice.


Well, I guess it is too late to change. Once you have started down the path of the darkside . . .

Well, Jedi Council Member was the highest rank you could get in the old forums, so I assume it is here as well. I'm assuming it comes after 5000 posts. Oh well, it's not a race, so no big rush.

I'm sure that The Dark Path has a similar title at 5000+, BigB. No clue what it could possibly be though. Dark Lord of the Sith? Emporer? King of the World? We won't know for a while. :D

Do you really think it will take that long? Just kidding, I'm in no rush to hit 5K either. As for the custom titles, that was somhing that was rumored about when the new forums went live. Sir Steve may add it in the future, but from what JT has said, it's not in yet. :)

I remember back in the old forum days, I asked if I could be a Sith and the only reply I got was a very short...."NO, YOU CAN'T!"

Why am I a sith? Because with enough time and patience, the Sith get what they want. They do not conform to the standard or follow blindly to those who say you must do things a certain way.

It's funny how easily people can be manipulated and how easy it is to plant the seed of destruction when the rules are followed. I found out long ago that in the business world, rules are not created to maintain order and peace......they are created to keep out and hold down those who are more deserved of leadership.

Oh, I'm sorry....let me start over.

I am a Sith, because "good is dumb!"

I chose Sith because I'm too bad to be good. Always been a wee rabble rouser. If i had a custom title it would be 'Galaxial despot' like I use on my ezboard. I just like the ring of it. it's kind of ironic considering what a small speck I am in the galaxy and what little power i have at my disposal in reality.

Fighting with JJB was a futile pursuit. It was a no win situation so it was better to bury the hatchet and learn to live with each other.
I'm trying to be more peaceable lately, i have personal issues that take up all my energy and so there's little left for fighting these days.

Jonna says I'm cranky all the time, I don't really know what cranky is. I probably suffer from terminal frustration. I can see better ways for things to be done but I'm powerless to change things. Impotence is not only a word to describe - man troubles...

If I ruled the world......... :crazed:
