BioWare Blog: The Story of the Sith Warrior

The big news this week was openign of the applications for Game Testing. Due to the overwhelming interest the servers have been down for extended periods of time this week, but are back up now and look like they'll remain so. Even so, the application process had (and possibly still has) a number of problems though BioWare is actively working to resolve as many of those issues as they can. Even so, if you want to apply and are having trouble you can take a look at the issues thread which lists a number of known problems and solutions.

For this Friday's update we get a BioWare blog entry, titled "The Story of the Sith Warrior". Here's an excerpt:
You begin the Sith Warrior story as the apprentice of one of the most powerful Sith Lords in the Empire. Yes, you serve him, as Vader served the Emperor, but he knows that you are at your best and most powerful the more you can flex your muscles. As long as your master’s ultimate directives are met, you are encouraged to entertain your every impulse and do as you please.

Unbound and unleashed on the galaxy, you wage war against the Jedi, relentlessly hunting and neutralizing their most powerful and important players. You can leave an indelible darkness on every planet you visit or find less wanton routes to your goals, as you eliminate rivals, acquire your own minions and build your personal power base.
There's not a lot of new information there and seems mostly a promotional piece for the class (unlike the previous blogs that I remember, which also showed some insight in the creation of the class). Most of the information is really in the bit quoted above, all of it open to speculation (what do they mean with "acquire your own minions"?).

But I will admit that the following made my inner rebel smile: "You can even have secret designs to redeem yourself, embrace the light and destabilize the Empire from within."
