BioWare and LucasArts newest work, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) is a MMO role-playing game that takes place about 300 years after the previously released Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Irrespective of the Treaty of Coruscant, which upholds the peace among the two waring factions, strain continues to prevail and threatens to break the peace.

The two conflicting sides in SWTOR, are the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Where exactly the Sith originally came from continues to be a riddle in SWTOR. It is however believed that the race began about three thousand years ago and that the race carries the bloodline of the Jedi. When the Dark Jedi arrived on Korriban, they began commanding the inhabitants. After years of open marriage between the Dark Jedi and the inhabitants of Korriban, came the 'Sith' race along with the wrath and hatred towards the Jedi Order.

Prior to SWTOR The Old Republic, the new Sith race are made up of Force-sensitive hybrids just like the Jedi. Their use of the Force is for extermination and power as averse to the Jedi's use of the Force for the good. As the Sith civilisation grows and reached the Republic's boundaries, came forth the Great Hyperspace War. Ever since, the 1,000 years battle among the two orders, the Emperor of the Sith Empire and the Jedi Order of the Galactic Republic continues.

Although, the Sith were conquered in a galaxy-wide battle, the last Sith Emperor manged to slip away and began the Empire anew with the help of his Dark Lords. The new civilization is built on the foundations of reprisal and distaste with the aim to one day crush the Republic and the Jedi Order as they did onto the Sith race. Over several thousand years, the Empire grew extensively with a solid and savage Imperial army and fleets of combat ships. All this while, the Emperor prolongs his life by using dark rituals in order to see the day that the Jedi Order is entirely obliterated.

The new and stronger Sith Empire's combat forces, as seen in SWTOR today, is not only made up of the Imperial Agents but with Bounty Hunters to destroy key political players within the Republic. These are 2 of the 4 characters that are presented in SWTOR. The SWTOR Agent reflects the Smuggler. The SWTOR Bounty Hunters on the other hand are adept at following down specified targets. This SWTOR class works under the radar and has been trained to seamlessly penetrate the Galactic Republic.

How the endless battle among the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic concludes has yet to be revealed in SWTOR Tips. Whether the Republic will be fortunate in keeping the peace and shielding their people from harm, or that the Empire will succeed in destroying the Republic and begin ruling with fear remains a riddle.
