am9vG6rgo_840w_v1 (1)

When talking about Star Wars, we know that there are many powerful characters within the story. We’ve seen them in the movies and we’ve read about them in books and even comics.

It’s that time again – time for another episode of The Academy. This one, episode 15, will tell you all about codes and creeds. There are many codes and creeds in the Star Wars universe so you will also see them throughout SWTOR.

Star Wars Fan Film Unity of the Force

Star Wars Unity of the Force (Fan Film)

Here’s a really cool fan made film we think you will enjoy. In this story, the young hero, Lak, is tasked with finding an artifact, a special lightsaber that is said to be the most powerful in existence. He is less than enthused in the beginning, which makes him different from many young Jedis. I would expect him to be chomping at the bit to take on a mission like this but instead, his attitude was one of “Can’t someone else do it?” While this annoyed me, I also thought it was kind of refreshing to see a different angle taken. So anyway, he goes on to complete this mission to find The Artifact and there are many obstacles in his way, which is no surprise. I think you’ll find it a fun little short and the ending was a bit of a surprise to me. The ending may surprise…
