This is Developer Dispatch 6-Designing the Dark Side for the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic developed for the PC as a Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game or MMORG. The game is to be released on December 10, 2010. The game takes place more than 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader and approximately three hundred years after the events of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR).

Inspired by notorious characters such as Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, the Sith Inquisitor and Sith Warrior take different approaches to their rise to power. The Sith Warrior achieves victory through pure aggression and might while the Sith Inquisitor excels by cunning ambition and Force manipulation.

From storyline, to art style, to combat tactics, each design decision was made to support the dark side themes of power, domination, and destruction.
