Oh, don't even get me thinking about armor.  I've got an old +20ish suit that's all but randomly put together from the cheapest mods I could find at the time.    It's mostly agility and strength.  While agility's useful to me I really need more dex.  But that stuff's so expensive.  And I've got a massive backlog of content I haven't even touched yet.  Still have unfinished quests on Mustafar and Kashyyyk.  Haven't done anything with the space station or even seen the new "village" and the heroics quests.

If folks want to do that stuff I'll come along and help as I can.  Also will help folks with other quests they might want to do.  As a combatant in a guild of entertainers, killin' stuff is pretty much my unique contribution.  I also have, of course, a YT and a two-seater fighter for folks looking to grind space experience or run space quests.

I tend to find, however, grinding in groups for collections rewards can be problematic.  Alot of the time you can get those off creatures easily massacred singlehandedly and it'd be a bit counterproductive having to share the proceeds.

What might be more practical is setting up some kind of in-guild exchange forum.  If folks pick up something they already have they can offer it to someone who needs it.

I started the rock collection with the help from Ronin and Myxxie. I like Ronin’s idea of the collection gathering parties. They help immensely!

*deep breath*

IC:

Breelas is working on improving her musician skills and a little of her dancing.  She's also wondering how to keep Celox from treating her like a posession  She's enjoying making friends and becoming part of a group.

Rhyse'ra is excited to be flying with Mandash again and being involved with another group of entertainers, she's not had chance to play with a band since the Singing Sands broke up last time.  She's practicing her flying, and keeping an eye on her hubby, H'oshi.

A brief rundown of my non-HGS characters, in case anyone wants to RP with them:

Kaline is training in her Force abilities and is becoming more involved in the Vigil.  Isa'asent was recently involved in some information gathering for the Glastons and will be looking to help them out some more.  Fiolana is trying not to get too involved in Shade, but she's tempted to try and take Kaline's place in the criminal world (Which she's completely unsuited for). 

I re-made Kaline's brother, Daedd, who's another pilot/entertainer and I may end up bringing him into HGS too if there's a place for him, because I can't think of a better group of people to be with.

OOC in-game:

I'm LOVING the TCG, and I've been working on my cards.  I'm also looking to run some tournaments, Ronin ... maybe we can work together on something?  I can't enter the official ones, as I'm in the UK. 

I'm trying to sell off some of my junk to raise some funds.  I either want to finish the Jedi waistpack and then work on getting my new cloak, or I'll end up spending it on shiny things for my Dojo in Riva Dorata (-2244, 1393).  If anyone wants to use it for IC training, let me know and we'll arrange something.

OOC out of game:

Back to college - As a teacher.  New term, lots of paperwork to sort out, which I've been doing this week.  New students start on Monday.  It's a college for young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, so it's always interesting.  A couple of weeks and then I start my teacher training too, so it's gonna be hectic!

My OOC alt, Niuk, is now a level 90 Shipwright/Structures engineer.  If folks want cheap hulls, parts or loot RE'd he'll be available for that.  My next step for him is getting vendors set up and selling some old items and resources I've got laying around.  That should set up him for buying the resources and clothing/food buffs he needs to be truly effective.  He can also make furniture, of course, for folks what need.

We're completely redeployed to a ridge just south of the Riva shuttleport.  Once you clear the plateaus and gullies you'll see a promontory looming over the riverbend and a few buildings atop it.  The bunker and the storehouses behind it belong to Ikopi Stag Enterprises - A Division of HGS.  Sometimes you'll even see the Ikopi Stag, a YT-1300, come to rest nearby.  The bunker itself has all kinds of rooms for different activities (briefing room, meeting rooms, workshops, guest bedroom, med bay, etc.) and even a decorated mini-cantina in the basement.  It's open to HGS for whatever folks might need it for.

Grim himself is mostly involved in RP and collections grinding.  However I think I'll have him do the quest for an ARC-170 deed.  As a relic of the Clone Wars himself it's fitting enough a steed for the old captain.  However, the big advantage is that it can hold two additional gunners.  The exp grind will go alot faster in a speedy and maneuverable ship and one that will hold three players is ideal assuming people don't get motion sickness.  Then it's back to The Ikopi Stag for a less...stressful platform if one which will be a bit slower in the going.

Grim, as noted here and in other threads, is available for both IC and OOC support when a ground or space combatant is needed.  Just ask him (or Niuk) for help.

IC: Miss Z is on a long vacation on a beach some where in the galaxy.

OOC: I'm pregnant! 
Unfortunately I am feeling so so nauseous, and everytime I have to throw up I get a migraine for two days straight. So, I'm home on sick leave, not being able to much but watch TV and read. This has been going on for about 7 weeks now, so I'm soooooo bored...yet so happy!

Besides this, the little time I can sit up straight, I'm spending time with friends in RL plus trying to take care of our guild in Age of Conan, Citizen of Solace on the Hyrkania RP server, I'm the guild leader.

And then we have the fact that my new computer had to be sent back since it wasn't working properly, so now my and my man are back to only having one computer - his. And I don't even have SWG installed on that one...I need to do something about that while he is at work *smirks*

After seeing the pics of BaconHeadIthorian's YT-1300 I think I'm going to have to do some serious redecorating on the Stag to make it HGS worthy.

Added to the list.

Man, I'm not going to get bored any time soon am I?
