The Revanite AscendanceFROM: The Shroud
TO: All Assets (Level 25 Encoding Active)
SUBJECT: The Order of Revan

I have mentioned in the past that a number of embedded Imperial and Republic assets have been eliminated. Some of these deaths appeared purely incidental, while others were very obviously assassinations executed with varying degrees of competence and flair that would not suggest a pattern. I now believe it was a mistake for me to have dismissed these deaths as unrelated.

Probe transmissions from Manaan show that a Republic officer and a member of the Dark Council have been meeting there in secret. Even in times of relative peace this would be highly irregular, of course. At first I thought they might be attempting to strike an accord, but then I noticed that the unlikely pair were on Manaan with the blessing of the planet’s guardians, the Order of Shasa. That little fact caused something to click.

The Order of Shasa follow a doctrine based on the values of the late Darth Revan. As you should well know, Revan was both a Sith Lord and a Jedi Knight in his time. But what you may not know, depending on your assignment, is that his morally pragmatic doctrine is also the basis upon which another, more recent group has sprung up.

I first learned of the Order of Revan when a sleeper asset stationed on Dromund Kaas was approached to become one of their adherents. The order was presented to asset I-29 as a group of like-minded Imperial activists looking to reshape the Empire from within so they could impose their particular ideals throughout the galaxy. Their hope was that I-29, who was then posing as caretaker of a prominent Sith Lord’s estate, would be able to provide intelligence.
Naturally, I instructed I-29 to accept.

I-29 proved herself useful to the Revanites--just useful enough to remain in their good graces--and under my guidance she mapped out the composition of their organization. I ultimately found them to be a poorly structured and ill-resourced cult. Interesting, but without potential. I decided to have I-29 fake her death for reassignment offworld. I would hear rumblings every now and then about the order after that, but none of it would have led me to believe what I believe now.

If I wanted to impose my will upon the galaxy, I wouldn’t worm my way into the heart of the Empire and assume command of their endless war. How tiring. No, I would take both the Empire and the Republic from within, stem the tide of war, and then slowly reshape both sides to fit my own agenda.
My last report from R-3 before his murder suggested he was about to come into receipt of a communique from a prominent Imperial figure to a Republic captain. At the time, I’d assumed a possible defection, but other explanations now come to mind. And when R-27’s ship was destroyed on the trail of a Mantellian ambassador en route to Dorin, my data recovery team found evidence that the attacking ship was an Imperial stealth fighter. Hard to believe a lone Imperial craft would venture so deep within Republic space without some manner of assurance of their safety.

I have no proof of my suspicions, so as of this writing all embedded assets will make the Order of Revan their top priority. Particular attention should be paid to Republic Colonel Rian Darok and Darth Arkous. Asset cross-communication on Dromund Kaas is permitted for the coordination of an investigation into Tari Darkspanner, the last known Master of the Order of Revan. Engage in intelligence gathering only. Do not seek recruitment nor take any other action without my explicit approval.

If matters are transpiring as I see them, the galaxy is poised to change in a profound way. I’m fine with change, just so long as I’m prepared for it.

You have your orders. Execute them.

Tis the season for furious action! We hope everyone has been enjoying Season 3 thus far and ready for more intense action as we get closer to the wire. Giradda and Baron Deathmark have once again graciously opened up their personal collection of antiques and prized possessions to honor the glorious entertainment you are obliged to offer!

Our goal is to get the rewards out to you, the PvPer wanting to best every opponent in the Arena of Death, sooner so you can hunker down and get to a’ slaughtering! Excitement begets excitement and we hope this gets your PvP juices furiously flowing.

Without further ado here is one of the Tier 1 rewards (an oft requested mount from our Reward Suggestion thread in the PvP Forums):

Above is just a taste of the rewards we are offering in Season 3. In addition to these rewards Giradda will be offering (but yet can’t show off) a new armor set, decoration trophies, a new weapon set, a unique color crystal and a Top 96 character reward!

We will be releasing more information about the ascetics and rating required for these rewards soon! Until then, we hope you continue to enjoy Season 3!

Happy Hunting!

The PvP Team
It has been a long time since SW:TOR was actually even on our radar, but after some initial playing around and humdrum about, we are finding our time there to be more interesting. The site here itself will be kept more of a simple state, only expanding as needed. We have goals, and are looking at widening things as we go.

The current plan is to, of course, get a guild cruiser, but that will take time and credits. Another thing on our list is to start doing 8 man operations starting with the basics and slowly making our way up the ladder so as the group can get its feet wet. And with the looming expansion, we will have plenty of time to do just that.

Anyways, for those that don't know, the second digital expansion for SW:TOR, Shadow of Revan, is releasing early December. You can pre-order it now and you will get the first expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, added to your account for free, if you have not already purchased that before. Pretty good deal considering other companies out there.
