Force Lore!  Your weekly extension into the stories that are behind people, places, and events within the Star Wars: The Old Republic game.  Each Wednesday, we take a look at some of the lore that makes up the Star Wars universe and how it effects you, the player, in your travels within the game.

This week, I’m hopping away (no pun intended with the whole Easter thing) from planets and settings.  Instead, I’m going to take you on a brief trek through something I think would be a welcomed addition and a much needed feature to SWTOR, In-Game events.  Switch all power to your front deflectors and follow me in as we make the jump.

It’s Wednesday.  Hello to all the CRR readers out there.  Welcome to Force Lore, your weekly dose of the who’s, the what’s, the when’s, and the why’s of the Star Wars Universe… Especially when it comes to anything dealing with the awesome MMO, The Old Republic.  In essence, we’re trying to be an out-of-game extension of the Datacrons found in-game.

This week, we’re looking at the last of the starting planets for the different classes found within Star Wars: The Old Republic.  Last, but not least, is the world of Nal Hutta, or as it’s known in the game, Hutta.  This is the starting area for the Imperial Agent and the Bounty Hunter, two of the classes for the Sith Empire.

I’m not going to lie.  I have procrastinated with this article all week long.  Partially because I’ve been enjoying the awesome weather that’s been abundant this last couple weeks.  But also because I’ve been working on custom content and writing for another project I have with my friend.  As my friend’s wife says to him, the same may apply to me: I only have enough room in the playroom in my head for so many toys at one time.  But, without further ado, let’s check out the biggest mobster planet in the game.  Follow me in after the jump!

Hello everyone on this Wednesday afternoon.  It’s nearing the end of March and I feel like it should be the end of May.  The weather has been awesome here!  Last year at this time, I was still prepared to shovel snow.  Now, I’m ready to break the shorts out in order to sun some very white, chicken legs.  What a big change this year has been.  With the end of March quickly approaching, the team here at CRR are anticipating the release of Legacy 1.2, the first big content patch of Star Wars: The Old Republic.  If you haven’t checked out the weekly podcast here at CRR, please do so.  Carla, Maer, Jason, and myself talked a lot about the upcoming patch and the changes in store for the Legacy System.

But we’re not covering that here today.  Instead we’ll take a quick overveiw of the Republic’s center for crime and mischief, Ord Mantell, the starting world for the Trooper and the Smuggler.  Turn your comlinks on, link up your datapads, and let’s jump over to the world torn apart by civil war!
