A Writer’s Tribute: Kashira’s time with SWTOR-RP

Life is busy. The almighty Force calls and beckons, and answer it we must. Nothing lasts forever, and that is very much the case here at SWTOR-RP. We’ve seen many reporters come and go, some staying with us longer than others. But it is rare to find a writer who falls into the role with [...]

Progenitor Highlight: Darth Thyrus

My previous highlight looked into the lighter side of The Progenitor server, focusing on the Grand Master Alen. He told me that his arch nemesis is Darth Thyrus, and well… what else was I to do but to seek out the player myself and get a meeting with him?When interviewing the player through the eyes [...]

Force Reflection: Who is your crush?

Roleplayer’s Guide to the Galaxy: How to Get the RP You’re Sure is Happening to Everyone Else

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Why is everyone having awesome RP but me?”In my experience, this is a common assumption amongst role-players, that somehow, somewhere, the rest of the RP community is happening, and the individual is left in some kind of hellish limbo where plots are left unfinished, stories untold, and the only [...]

Force Reflection: Boba’s pathway?

We all know about Boba Fett. Some people may know about him, and not even know about his father. Jango was killed swiftly by Mace Windu in front of Boba. Near the final scenes of Attack of the Clones, you see Boba as a young boy, holding his father’s decapitated head. Do you believe this [...]

Force Reflection: Diore? Cotour? M. Star?

The old Hollywood saying is that Fashion makes the man. For celebrities or celebrity wannabes, sometimes it’s all about style. It’s a telling of when you’ve made it, when you can drop money on a dress that would leave others jaw droppingly envious, or costs enough to feed a small village overseas. To a lot [...]

Progenitor Highlight: Grand Master Alen Stanic

Original art by SoraelAlen, Grand Master of an order known to many as The Lost Praxeum, is a long standing player and now the leader of the guild previously mentioned, after having taken over from his predecessor Rasheke. Alen comes to my notice mainly because I like his style! And when questioning the Grand Jedi [...]

Force Reflection: What would R2 do?

Honestly, we all know one of the smartest characters in the Star Wars universe is the Astromech droid, R2-D2. He always is wise and knows how to get C-3P0 out of sticky situations.

Force Reflection: The Name Game?

I discussed in a former FR article the importance of a name for a character, and how the characters we have learned to love most might have been less thrilling and less epic if their names were normal, run of the mill, or generic. Luke Skywalker wouldn’t have held the same charisma and thrill as [...]

Force Reflection: From ‘light’ to ‘dark.’ What do you think?

Last week, my readers took the time to write some interesting comments.

SWTOR-RP Wiki Profile: Jevvica

HoloGossip: Droid getting too smart for you, smarty pants?

She had a lot to say about her business [...]

Force Reflection: Good or Evil?

In my talks with fellow roleplayers over the years, I’ve come to an interesting finding when it comes to belief about the Empire and the Republic.To me, it’s feasible that there are good people on both sides fighting for a way of life that they see as the best, or are forced because of their [...]

Force Reflection: What is light and dark? Good versus evil?

This has likely been covered before, if not here then elsewhere. The topic of light versus dark is one that persists throughout SWTOR role-play, due to obvious reasons.I have been thinking a lot myself about my own perception of light versus dark, good versus evil and I realised that before I had begun to role-play [...]

Life on Nar Shaddaa: Spice-haul thwarted by ‘spectral’ do-gooder

The Hutt moon. From bright lights, to flashy women clothed in overstated glittery outfits; leaving nothing to the imagination, to dark towering buildings like long desperate fingers reaching up into impossibly sullen skies. Pollution hangs upon the air, thinly and yet it can be tasted, savoured even for those who are quite used to the [...]
