TOR Blog On Writing The Jedi Knight

Posted By Mike on November 7, 2009



The official site of Star Wars: The Old Republic has just posted their latest developer blog and this one comes from a familiar name to EU and KOTOR fans in particular. Senior writer for the game, Drew Karpyshyn, provides his thoughts as a writer for the Jedi class storyline. Excerpt below:

"Ah, the Jedi Code. That’s where things get interesting, isn’t it? Because the Jedi are more than just unstoppable Force warriors. They’re symbols; they embody an ideal. The Code dictates that a Jedi’s actions must be driven by logic and reason. There is no emotion, there is peace.

Nice theory. In practice, however, it’s never that simple. Jedi Knights strive for mental, physical and spiritual perfection, but they’re still human. (Well, not just human, but you know what I mean.) They’re not infallible, and meting out justice in a dangerous galaxy sometimes means getting your hands dirty."
