Contest: Write Force-ful Dialogue for This Star Wars: The Old Republic Comic and Win The First Issue FreeS

BioWare's new Star Wars MMO covers a lot of ground when it comes the pre-history of Luke Skywalker's universe. But, even with all the gameplay and dialogue in The Old Republic, there' s still lots of stories to be told about the conflicts between Jedi, Sith, Mandalorians and The Republic of the old.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: War—written by John Jackson Miller and drawn by Andrea Mutti—chronicles one Jedi's saga as the galaxy's most powerful factions collide into full-blown armed conflict. If you're a fan of the video games set in The Old Republic era, you might even see some familiar names, too.

The first issue of the Dark Horse comics limited series is out today, but you can win a free copy by putting your own dialogue into the words and captions into the blank spots below. You'll have until noon on Friday to post your entry in the thread below and we'll pick out ten lucky winners from the submissions.

In addition to the fame and adoration of your fellow Kotaku readers, winners will get a free digital version of the first issue of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: War. After entering the redemption code at Dark Horse Digital, ten winners will be able to read the digital comic on a web browser or on an iOS device via their app.

Here's the link to the source image. Please note the following:

1. Create your entry.
2. Upload it to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. It's stupid simple. No account is necessary.
3. This is very important: You must use the URL of the image itself. In imgur, this is the second URL it gives you after you upload the image. It's under "Direct Link (email & IM)"
4. At the beginning of the comments roll, click "Start a New Thread"
5. To the right of your name, select "Image."
6. Paste the imgur URL in the image URL field. It's the field that says "Image URL."
7. You can add editorial commentary if you want, but then just hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, paste the image URL as a comment.
8. This is important: Keep your image size under 1 MB. It will not upload to comments if it is over that size. What's more, we're getting reports that if your 'Shop is more than 1000px tall (vertical), it won't upload. If you're getting the broken-image icon, try resizing to a smaller dimension.

Have at it, padawans.
