Attention Meatbags: Win A Copy Of Revan – Autographed By Drew Karpyshyn

If you’ve played Knights of The Old Republic (which, if you haven’t you should, and you can still buy it on Steam), the Revan character needs no introduction. Likewise for Drew Karpyshyn, who has penned not only some of your favorite BioWare in-game stories from Neverwinter Nights, KoTOR and the Mass Effect series, but also some of the best-received extended universe Star Wars novels of all time in the Darth Bane series.

The fine folks at BioWare were kind enough to offer us an autographed, hardcover copy of the latest Star Wars: The Old Republic novel, Revan, signed by none other than Drew Karpyshyn himself!

So How Do I Win?

How do you win, you might ask? Couldn’t be easier… especially if you’re familiar with Knights of The Old Republic! There are three ways to get in on the action (and yes, they stack – if you do all three, you get three entires!):

  1. To get one entry, simply leave a comment below, (preferably with your favorite quote from everyone’s favorite assassin droid HK-47!) If you’re unfamiliar with HK-47, first of all shame on you. But second of all, Google around and you’re sure to find some great quotes! We even embedded a video below to get you started!
  2. Another way to enter is to like us on Facebook and leave a comment in the contest post there that uses the word “Meatbag!
  3. You’ll earn a third entry if you Tweet the following line – and be sure to leave the hashtag #meatbag embedded, that’s what we’ll be looking for!

I might win an autographed copy of Revan by @DrewKarpyshyn from @askajedi ! http://www.askajedi.com/2011/12/06/attention-meatbags-win-a-copy-of-revan-autographed-by-drew-karpyshyn/ #swtor #starwars #meatbag

Simple enough, right? We’re gonna leave this contest open until the start of Early Game Access which is now on December 13th. Then we’ll tally all of the entries, pick the winner, and then put our phones on mute to enjoy some TOR!

And if you don’t win, you can always pick up Revan on your own, (and you should), including digital versions available from iTunes, Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

    • “That is not it, master. No, that is not it either. *Sigh* that is a hinge, master.”

    ―HK-47

  6. “You are a very harsh master, Master. I like you.”

  7. HK-47: “Answer: Simply that the distinction between ‘killer’ and ‘killee’ be a clear one. I cannot kill of my own volition, naturally.”
    Revan: “I don’t think ‘killee’ is a word.”
    HK-47: “Expletive: Damn it, master, I am an assassination droid… not a dictionary!”

    ―HK-47

        “Commentary: The meatbag speaks without clarity. Detail this agreement or the master will splatter your organs all over the floor.””

        Sorry for doubleposting.

  14. Mockery: Am I all right? Oh, yes, Master, why, I am fine. Statement: I mean, I have only just been re-activated, only to find that there are sub-standard duplicates of me running all over the galaxy, corroding my good name. But if they are, in fact, hunting you, then I look forward to the opportunity to meet these units—and educate them in proper assassination protocols.
    ―HK-47

    HK-47

    “Master, I really enjoy killing for you.” HK-47.

  20. Xandoreyn says:

    “Pain is really the only reliable means by which truth may be obtained. Or so I choose to believe.”

  21. “Meatbag.”

  22. “Commentary: It is not possible to destroy the master. It is suggested that you run while my blaster warms up, meatbags.”

    “Commentary: It is not possible to destroy the master. It is suggested that you run while my blaster warms up, meatbags.”

  27. Phoenix8387 says:

    HK-47 [to Revan]: “Your pupil once asked me what I thought of him and I informed him of his meatbag status. He was unimpressed, but you thought the reference was humorous. You programmed me to continue using that reference. It drove your pupil to extreme lengths of frustration.”

    And therefor, ‘meatbag’ was coined.

  28. “Objection: I am not a problem, meatbag. You and your lack of any organized repair skills are a problem.”

  29. RagingSage says:

    HK-47: “Commentary: I say we blast the meatbag and save you the trouble, master!”

  30. “Statement: HK-47 is ready to serve, master. Observation: Notice that I did not ask if you need anyone killed. You may be curious as to why. Answer: That is because you told me to stop asking if you needed anyone killed. So I have. From now on, I will simply say, “I am ready to serve.” Yes, ready to serve. In whatever way a common protocol or utility droid might serve. It seems that is my lot in life. Not to kill.” ―HK-47

  31. “As you say Master. Would you prefer me to call you something else? Perhaps liquidous fleshbag?”

  32. Jonathan mummey says:

    “Observation: I am awesome.”

  33. Shayne Burgess says:

    Diagnosis: Either this meatbag is dead or my watch has stopped.

  34. Shayne Burgess says:

    Wait I was wrong… I like this one waaaaay more!

    Kill one meatbag, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of meatbags, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.

  35. “Answer: Oh, that is impossible, master. If I were out to kill you we would not be speaking.” HK-47

    • WAITWAIT, I change my entry!’

      “Observation: I am a droid, master, with programming. Even if I did not enjoy killing, I would have no choice. Thankfully, I enjoy it very much.” ―HK-47

  36. Schlemstar says:

    Explanation: It’s just that you have all these squishy parts, master. And all that water! How the constant sloshing doesn’t drive you mad, I have no idea…

  37. “Answer: There are a “lot” of politicians on Coruscant. Master. I could spend decades slaughtering them and still not make a dent.”

  38. First, Master, I would appreciate it if Jedi need to be killed, that you permit me to kill those annoying pseudo-pacifist for you

  39. HK-47: “Your pupil once asked me what I thought of him and I informed him of his meatbag status. He was unimpressed, but you thought the reference was humorous. You programmed me to continue using that reference. It drove your pupil to extreme lengths of frustration.”
    Revan: “So… Malak was the original meatbag. I like that idea.”
    HK-47: “Of course you do, master. You liked it then as well.”

  40. Ethan Celletti says:

    “Statement: Just a simple droid, here, ma’am. Nothing to see. Move

    along.”

  43. Josh Kirby says:

    Meatbag

    “Statement: Just a simple droid, here, ma’am. Nothing to see. Move along.”

  47. Damn it, master, I am an assassination droid… not a dictionary!”

  48. Commentary: As do I. It is our lot in life, I suppose, Master. Shall we find something to kill to cheer ourselves up?

  49. “Statement: I have already learned a great deal, master, and I am anxious to learn more of lying, betrayal, and new ways to harm innocents.” HK-47

  50. Advisement: Evisceration works well. Electrocution and blunt trauma also work well, I understand.

  51. Darth Sapientus says:

    Pain is really the only reliable means by which truth may be obtained. Or so I choose to believe.

    • Darth Sapientus says:

      It is evident that the Sith would very much like to assassinate all the Jedi. Which is somewhat the equivalent of cultural suicide, since some Sith are Jedi or were Jedi. It is much like the circumstance I find myself in now. How do you kill such an integral part of yourself over such ethical differences?

  52. GameKnight says:

    Negative. I just don’t like organic meatbags. Except for the master, of course. Ha ha.

  53. “I think he is making fun of you, master. Shall I proceed with wasting the meatbag?”

  54. Darth Janus says:

    “Observation: I am a droid, master, with programming. Even if I did not enjoy killing, I would have no choice. Thankfully, I enjoy it very much.”

    ´´Query:Is there someone that you need killed,Master`?“

  56. “Observation: I am a droid, master, with programming. Even if I did not enjoy killing, I would have no choice. Thankfully, I enjoy it very much.”

  57. “Your pupil once asked me what I thought of him and I informed him of his meatbag status. He was unimpressed, but you thought the reference was humorous. You programmed me to continue using that reference. It drove your pupil to extreme lengths of frustration.”

  58. Oneiros Lucidity says:

    Philosophical pondering: I think that the Maker, in creating Humanity, somewhat overestimated his ability.

  59. “Objection: I am not a problem, meatbag. You and your lack of any organized repair skills are a problem.”

  60. DarthShep says:
    December 6, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    “Retraction: Did I say that out loud? While it is true you are a meatbag, I should refrain from addressing you as such.”

  61. “Query: Do you know what the chances are of puncturing that sole actuator? I would have congratulated my master were he not sizzling and incoherent at the time. If you will excuse me, master. I wish meditate on the face of my former meatbag master as he was electrocuted. I find it most soothing.””

  62. “Translation: 98% probability that members of the miniature organic’s tribe are being held by Sand People, master. Doubtless he wishes assistance. … Translation: 2% probability that the miniature organic is simply looking for trouble and needs to be blasted. That may be wishful thinking on my part, master.”
    ―HK-47’s

  63. I’m a meatbag and I want this book.

  64. “Advisement: Evisceration works well. Electrocution and blunt trauma also work well, I understand.”

    He’s an interesting droid isn’t he.

  65. Darth Glorfindel says:

    Can I crush his neck now, master? Just a little? It’s been a long time fantasy of mine. ―HK-4

  66. Starshaker says:

    “Commentary: It is not possible to destroy the master. It is suggested that you run while my blaster warms up, meatbags”

  67. You want to give the book to the meatbag leaving this comment What do you mean droids can’t use the force? Shut it meatbag and give him the book.

  68. “It is quite possible that tampering has simply erased my core permanently. If that is so, a meatbag will surely pay!”

  69. HK-47: Analysis: There is a 98% chance this meatbag is requesting our help in rescuing its friends master.
    Revan: And the other two percent?
    HK-47: Answer: That it is wasting our time and needs to be blasted. That might be wishful thinking on my part.

  70. Jimmie Chumley says:

    Shut-up you stupid bucket of bolts. lol HK is great!

  71. “Recitation: First, weapon selection is critical. If I see one more idiot attacking a Jedi with a blaster pistol, then I’ll kill them myself.”

  72. “Statement: Just a simple droid here, ma’am. Nothing to see. Move along.”

  73. Ray Davis says:

    “Definition: ‘Love’ is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope.
    Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds.”

  74. SorcererBiggz says:

    Can you send Drew here to sign my hard-back copy personally? Meatbag!

  75. Pity meatbags cant get an upgrade for their junk.

  80. Statement: A square has four corners.

  81. “As you say Master. Would you prefer me to call you something else? Perhaps liquidous fleshbag?”
    Makes me laugh every time I hear it.

  82. “For now, please excuse me master. I wish to meditate upon the face of my former meatbag master as he was electrocuted. I find it most soothing.”

  83. “Statement: Master, I am no behavior droid but it is obvious to me that you have serious ethical problems that will need to be treated at some point.”

  84. “I am like a veritable fable, warning against the karma caused by murdering others, a morality tale if you will. What utter irony.”

  106. Darren Trafford says:

    “Recitation: Once upon a time, organic meatbags bred out of control and filled the galaxy. There are different meatbags across different planets, all bumping into each other.
    They talk a great deal and threaten each other for various reasons, mostly involving mating, survival, and resources. It is really quite tiresome.”

    -HK-47’s best bed time story.

  107. “You’re just a traveling piece of bad luck, aren’t you?”

  108. Davemaster says:

    “Explanation: It’s just that… you have all these squisy parts, master. And all that water! How the constant sloshing doesn’t drive”

  109. HK-47: Commentary: How would you like to be the wholly-owned servant to an organic meatbag? It’s demeaning! If, uh, you weren’t one yourself, I mean…
    Revan: Demeaning, is it?
    HK-47: Clarification: Err… perhaps I did not mean it *quite* like that, master. I mean… while an artificial life-form is superior…
    Revan: You’re not making it any better.
    HK-47: Commentary: I mean… nice human, goo-oood human…

    My favourite convo with HK in the game. Was gonna put the bottom line as qoute but put the Convo in instead.

  110. “Definition: ‘Love’ is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope… Love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds.”

  111. “Statement: Oh, yes. My master had quite the collection of tortured individuals that seemed unable to confront their basic personality conflicts. Let me cite some specific examples. [impersonates Carth Onasi] Mockery: “Oh, master, I do not trust you! I cannot trust you or anyone ever again!” [impersonates Bastila Shan] Mockery: “Oh, master, I love you but I hate everything you stand for, but I think we should go press our slimy, mucus-covered lips together in the cargo hold!” Conclusion: Such pheromone-driven Human responses never cease to decrease the charge in my capacitors and make me wish I could press a blaster pistol to my behavior core and pull the trigger. I am pleased that this does not seem to be the case with your current entourage.”
    ―HK-47 describes his prior owner (KOTOR 2)

  112. HK-47: Suggestion: Perhaps we could dismember the organic? It would make it easier for transport to the surface.
    Mercenary: Hey! Y-you… you can’t rip me to pieces! I’ll die!
    HK-47: Amendment: I did forget that. Stupid, frail, non-compartmentalized meatbags!

  113. “I am like a veritable fable, warning against the karma caused by murdering others, a morality tale if you will. What utter irony” – HK-47

  114. Yoink.

    ―HK-47

    I always ended up on the floor laughing my ass off, whenever that droid decided to speak.

  137. ”Yes, as I said, I am an assassin droid. It is my primary function to burn holes through meatbags that you wish removed from the galaxy… Master. Oh, how I hate that term.”
