This is just a place where I'm going to think out loud a bit about what's going on with my character, right now, OOC and perhaps some IC.  Feel free to jump in with comments or updates on your own character's doings.

Currently, Grim's big OOC project is collections.  I need more storage expansions for my HQ so it can serve, functionally, as a crafting center as well as being as intensely decorated as it is.  This means I'm back in the Shadowed Lands on Kashyyyk grinding gotals.   Man, I've killed lots of gotals in my time.  But they are dropping the collectables I need and I can make decent cash from junk-selling most of the loot.

Aside from that, I'm seeking out opportunities to RP with HGS folks whenever I can get them.  Interacting is key to bonding, figuring out how characters act around each other, and building both elan and some (creative) tensions.  I've been in some fun little RPs over the last week and look forward to more.

My alt, Niuk Kiuv, is currently specced in structures/starships/furniture with a speciality in starship construction.  It will be a while before he's got all the gear, supplies and whatnot he needs to really be good at it.  What he can do, for now, is reverse engineering space parts as needed, make basic homes and basic ship hulls, harvesters, furniture, lighting and whatnot as folks need.  There won't be any charge for things that don't take hideous amounts of resources or work and reverse engineering services will be free as well.

I'm also spending a little time sending Niuk out on space missions to experiment first hand with the parts he's crafting and REing as well as to gather component parts for RE.

Long term brainstorming: 

If Grim's the "go to" space guy for HGS I may have to OOCly at least get involved with Ramona and Ryian's assorted PvP space missions just to get a feel for that part of the community.  Being able to reach out for 'extras' or allies could be handy.  My own skills and knowledge of JtL is somewhat limited as I've tended to focus on PvE and shipboard RP rather than the technical aspects that PvP stresses.

I'm also finding myself thinking more and more upon how I can help bring more of a classic, swashbuckling, "Star Wars" feel to RP in general and I remain convinced the best tool is PvE storyteller to pull it off.  I've got piles of Star Wars roleplaying resources, and plenty of resources sci-fi and general RP besides, that I could draw from to generate scenarios and adventures (with some creative muddling and switching around).

One big advantage to experimenting with this is the company I'm now keeping in HGS where many folks have great expertise here.

If I did head down this route, I'd see if actual IC "adventures" would be something HGS would want to market along with other services.  Mainly, because of my own interests, I'd focus on Rebel and neutral missions against Imperial targets and could work Grim in  as the shadowy figure "The Grey Fox" who sends the heroes out to take on various challenges.  Could even be a branding angle here, "The Grey Fox Presents:"

But will I have time?  Do I have the attention span?  So much more basic stuff to be done like moving to Riva and building connections there...

My OOC projects right now are to design ads for Entertainer Explosion, Starsider Guild Leaders Meeting and Shakir’s play. In between that we are fitting IC interviews for the guild. They have all been quite fun and I enjoy the leve of membership participation.

Once things settle down a bit I can get back to attending reoccurring events on Starsider. I have cut back on attending cross-server events to focus on the guild. Although we are the same guild that has moved to Starsider, it is new in sense and I'd like to get to know everyone on a personal level. I haven’t even started on collections yet, except for the furniture movement and entertainer fan and instrument.

IC wise HGS has hired a lot of talent in the guild. Bib Fortuna is still trying to get her to come to the palace and that concerns Lu. Pex used to play Bib and that is one of the funniest storylines.

The Studio is branching out to hire consultants who have expertise in their respective skills, such as the attorney Celox, fencing instructor Jeevik and space guy Mandash. HGS is also going to launch it’s philanthropic Show in a Bag program.

Lona has been hired to be Lu’s personal assistant. The image “http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll164/HGS-Icons/MSN/Lona/Happy.png” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

IC Thistle is having a bit of a minor breakdown.  Due to several icky things happening all with in a week's time she has broken her no drinking rule.  You'll notice in her journals since the start I've always kept the temptations open.  She won't go back to spice (no worries there) and this is more something she is hiding and will not be acting "drunk" in public.  She really is a "goody goody" and just trying to stray away from that...its very boring.  =oP  Since I created her in Jan. I've been looking for an excuse to take her down that path.  Bingo!

OOC I'm trying desperately to condense all her clothes into 1 guild hall.  800 items allowed now and I really need that last storage collection in order to do it.  So that leaves me on my combat toon working towards that.  I also want to turn my soon to be empty guild hall into a dance training area/ personal apartment.  More for private use but I don't have any buildings decorated for RP.  They're all ooc storage.  So when people come to my "house" they don't think ..."oh hey....lots of clothes...and no chairs." =oP


IC for Charleigh...well I won't use her much IC.  She is currently Thistle's personal tailor (cough slave cough).  Though I will be doing some slight rp with her as she will soon be hired by an Imperial group to make field uniforms.  Gotta make that sales pitch first.

OOC for Charleigh...just making clothing for whoever needs.  =o)

ICly, Celox is in a good mood nowadays.
He is on top of the world. After his grim adventures as Jabba's negotiator in the palace, and the boring employment @ Ramona's jailbirds, he has been able to get his legal license from IOCI.
With it, he got an associate position in the Siltar Group.
Making a name as a slick and slimo lawyer he got the job as the HGS attorney.
Nallu and the HGS company, open a lot of doors for Celox.
Beyond his attorney and business image, Celox is still a gambler at heart.
He is looking to use the HGS name & fame to get into exclusive gambling tournaments, which were closed to a small time scumbag like him, in the past.

His romantic endeavors are vast, dating 3 rodian females at the same time (A'keti, Teesik and Breelas).

Celox has been invited to the Chiggs Chiggli chatshow, which will bring him even more holotime and public exposure.
His goal is to become the most famous gambler in the galaxy (server).

OOCly, I will become extra busy once the GLs meeting will be over - organizing all the ideas/logs for the community forums.
I am also helping H'oshi to launch his browser Sabacc IG, and assisting him with canon rules for the game.
While not playing SWG, I am planning my ultimate SWG dream.
I have it all in my head, and it is super secret. No one, well, except for my RL wife knows what is it. That's the way I'm going to keep it, for now.
I will say that I am working on this project for 2.5 years.
And no, it is not related to IG gambling.

OOCly, I'll be helping Shakir with our drama production (as soon as she gets some scenes out for us to edit) and obtaining some decor for Jeevik's new house in Riva Dorata. I'll also need to start doing some collections for Jeeves, particularly the pitch/tilt one and maybe a few other easy ones.

ICly, Jeeves is looking to settle his differences with Celox one way or another. He doesn't particularly enjoy the idea of someone not liking him in his workplace, heh. He's also looking to teach fencing to whoever wants to learn. It *is* his job, after all. (And OOCly, I'd welcome the opportunity to go through this. I haven't really done anything involving his fencing in actual RP, and I'm really eager to). He's also looking to interact more with the other members of the studio and get to know them better.

IC'ly, Shakir is pursuing her ongoing relationship with Taslo Masunia. She is busily jotting away with her latest song, a piece she calls "The Holowood Dancers" which is inspired by all her friends in the Studio.

OOC'ly, I'm trying to finish up the Theatre construction with the help of our architects, and typing out the first draft of the script for the play.

Oh, drats.  I didn't talk about IC.  Probably because there's not too much to say.  Grim's keeping busy observing his new comrades and trying to figure out what the story is here, what his duties might be, what his fellows are about.  Since his return from travels "abroad" (which for him means beyond the Outer Rim) he's also been running into lots of old contacts who need to talk to him about something or other.

I suspect renewing old friendships and associations along with developing new ones in HGS is going to occupy the old captain rather fully for a while.

    OOCly: I am waiting for a TCG guildmate to finish my +35 Smuggler suit so I can then partake in heroics for the first time ever. While doing this I would also like to get into more of the collections. I am in need of those storage collections as well, and think I might see if I can join Mandash and others on the grind...so at least we have eachother's company. I am really trying to get all of this item storage situated so I can begin my move to Black Sands. Remahr wants Ronin to become the manager both ICly and OOCly of the Cantina there. Draz'tek will still bartend, but I will helpout when I can. Bartending and entertaining at my Bothan Tent at the Nomad Faire is another project I am trying to get kicked into gear. Soon...me and Gerag are hoping to start performing there so we can start marketing for the album release of my rap album..though that is a bit on the IC side. 
     With the GL meetings coming up I am going to be assisting Celox with that and hopefully with some of the postwork as well. Also might have some influx of info and RP with me bringing Project G.H.O.S.T. back into the public eye at the GL meeting. Project G.H.O.S.T. will be a IC guild, but not OOCly. I don't want to force people to GHOST only RP so I am allowing members of all areas to apply....though the application process will probably be strict.
    I am also working with T'din (Tadinian) on getting the background for most of my bothan personalities worked out. Ronin is a shapeshifter who assumes the identity of several bothans from around the galaxy which he has either dispatched to steal and live their lives, or kept them alive for some other purposes later.
     In RL I am preparing the home for the bouncing baby boy, Ronin...who will be joining us in less than a few months.
      Also I am still playing the TCG to develop strategies and decks to hopefully win some tournaments and fame. Going to plan on hosting a SSG exclusive TCG Tournament soon to which I've saved some loot cards from redemption yet so the winners can get some nice prizes. Also want to host some of those collection gathering parties but adding a camping trip/fishing trip theme to some of them. Hoping to be able to run one of those bi-weekly...so I have a lot on my plate.
