Satele Shan VS Darth Maul

Satele Shan VS Darth Maul

Satele Shan vs. Darth Maul – Here’s another versus matchup video we think you might enjoy. Who do you see the victor in this showdown? If you ask me, I say Satele has it by a long shot but it could be just because I am such a fan. This is not to known on Darth Maul. He was an amazing duelist. In fact, were it not for Satele’s ability with The Force, she could easily finish him off. Some will argue that since Shan is a grandmaster, this isn’t even a fight and she would take it by a landslide. However, Maul was very powerful and skilled with the sabers and I still believe would put up a good fight in a versus battle such as this. A lot of it also comes down to timing, and where in their story each is when they are pitted against one…

rakata thumbnail for swtorstrategies

Greetings Star Wars lore junkies. I’m Vulkk and working on this video took me insane amount of time and effort. I am glad it is finished finally. If you enjoy it, that will be my biggest reward. Part 2 of the RAKATA History and Lore will tell us about their First encounter with the Je’daii, explain the reasons for the Empire’s Collapse and what happened to the Remnants of the once mighty Infinite Empire. The Rakata (also known as the Builders) were a technologically advanced race that developed early in galactic history, even developing some early hyperdrive technology. Long term use of the dark side of the Force corrupted their society and turned them into a race of merciless warriors. The Rakata used their potent Force-powered technologies to conquer and enslave every other species they came across throughout their known galaxy. During the reign of theirInfinite Empire, they were characterized by…

And now something different… Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

Space

  I admit that the short movie below doesn’t have to do anything with Star Wars or The Old Republic. It does show however a future where the ability to travel from planet and planet is the norm just like Star Wars. After all, nothing tells that today’s science fiction isn’t going to be tomorrow’s reality. The short film, depicts a less sci-fi and more realistic future and uses Carl Sagan‘s voice to narrate its content. If you got about four minutes to spare, it’s certainly worth a look. You can also find a shot-by-shot description of the movie under this link as well as a link to the creator’s website right here.

TOR TV: The Incredible Exploits of Captain Jirk!

The Daring Captain Jirk has been asked to investigate a Sith cult on the planet Athiss. This is when the fun really begins… This is an amazing silent film made from a SWTOR Flashpoint. You know how we feel about fan fiction and other projects but this is a unique one for sure. You remember those cool old silent movies from back in the day? Well, there’s a good chance you don’t actually remember them. I know they were before my time even. Still I know what they are and I’ve seen a couple myself. You’ve probably seen them on TV or in a movie theater preview if you’re too young to remember when they were actually the popular thing. This fun little SWTOR film was done in silent movie style from a flashpoint and we think it’s a lot of fun. Check it out for yourself!
