SWTOR stands for Star Wars: The Old Republic, which is an online game that is terrible, but what it's about is really cool, and completely about the Sith. And I LOVE the Sith. Here's what it's about.

===Background===
{{Quote|You must go where Revan did, into the Unknown Regions, where the Sith, the true Sith, wait in the dark for the great war that comes.|[[Kreia]], to the [[Jedi Exile]]|Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords}}
With the [[Sith Empire]]'s defeat in the [[Great Hyperspace War]], the Sith were on the verge of collapse. But one [[Dark Lord]] escaped the Republic and made it to the [[Unknown Regions]]. There, he re-founded the Empire, himself assuming the title of [[Sith Emperor]], and created [[Dark Council|a council of other Sith Lords]]. Using the power of the [[Dark side of the Force|dark side]], the Emperor kept himself alive for over a thousand years after the Great Hyperspace War, rebuilding the Empire's strength and waiting for a chance to avenge the Sith's defeat.

The [[Galactic Republic|Republic]], meanwhile, was challenged in a number of wars over the next few thousand years, including the [[Great Sith War|war]] with [[Exar Kun]], [[Mandalorian Wars|battles]] with [[Mandalorians]] and the upheaval of the [[Kanz Disorders]].

In the year [[3,681 BBY]], the Sith Emperor saw that the chance for revenge against the Republic and the [[Jedi Order|Jedi]] had come, and launched an invasion of the Republic.

===The conflict===
[[File:Republicnavy.jpg|thumb|200px|left|A small Republic fleet during the [[Rimma Trade Route]] [[Mandalorian blockade of the Rimma Trade Route|blockade]].]]

The True Sith's invasion caught the Republic by surprise. The Sith seized many worlds in the [[Outer Rim Territories]] and destroyed the shipyards at [[Sluis Van]].

Battlegrounds included [[Ilum]], [[Dathomir]], and [[Manaan]], the latter seeing its surface cities destroyed, despite attempts to remain neutral. The Republic was further defeated at [[Agamar]] and [[Utapau]], and continuously harassed. A heroic struggle on Bothuawi helped slow the Sith invasion. However, the war was further complicated by the appearance of a Mandalorian fleet in alliance with the Sith. This fleet blockaded the [[Rimma Trade Route]] setting Republic efforts back. This blockade, however, was broken by a combined Republic-Smuggler alliance led by [[Hylo Visz]].

Decades after the war started, the Dark Council gave the Republic a surprising offer: the chance to negotiate peace. The Republic could not afford to ignore this opportunity, and the Jedi Council agreed to it, seeing the war was unwinnable. But while diplomats on both sides opened talks on [[Alderaan]], an elite Sith army [[Sacking of Coruscant|invaded]] [[Coruscant]] and held the planet hostage. With no other choice, the Republic diplomats signed the uneven [[Treaty of Coruscant]].

===Aftermath===
{{Quote|Thus began [[Cold War|the unprecedented stalemate]]. The Jedi reconnecting with their roots, the Republic nursing its wounds, the Sith consolidating their power in a galaxy divided between darkness and light.|[[Jedi Master]] [[Gnost-Dural]]|Timeline 1: Treaty of Coruscant}}

[[File:Treaty of Coruscant borders.jpg|left|thumb|200px|The division of worlds agreed upon in the treaty.]]

The treaty forced the Republic to give up many outlying systems to the True Sith Empire. Although his Empire was stronger than ever, the Sith Emperor no longer seemed to desire total conquest. He handed over control of the Empire to the Dark Council, a body of twelve Sith Lords who would oversee the day-to-day affairs of state. The Dark Lord went on to pursue his own mysterious goals as the Sith consolidated their power.

By the end of the war, thousands of Jedi were dead. The Galactic Republic focused its anger on the Jedi, blaming the order for its defeat at the hands of the Sith. Though they were still committed to defending the Republic, the surviving Jedi chose to return to their homeworld of [[Tython]].

The end of the Great Galactic War set the stage for a [[Cold War]] between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic in the years that followed. This cold war saw a number of border skirmishes and proxy wars, pushing the two super powers to the brink of another war.

And here's the trailer for it. Honestly, it is HTE===Background===

Honestly, I think it is THE COOLEST Sith video I have ever seen in my life. The main Sith Lord in the video is supposedly the Sith Emperor himself. WATCH THE VIDEO IT'S AWESOME!!!

"The True Sith's invasion caught the Republic by surprise. The Sith seized many worlds in the [[Outer Rim Territories]]" Yeah hah! The Outer Rim! I don't think I saw this in the article, but I also read that Revan never returned from the Unknown regions. Hopefully he just decided to stay, otherwise it would completely ruin any chance for KOTOR 3, unless this excuse is meant to be KOTOR 3. Booooo!!
