The next couple of RL weeks are suddenly very busy for me!

Last night I was at an event with a writer called Will Self doing some readings and signings, tonight it's a couple of poets (one of which is Carol Ann Duffy).  After that I go straight out to Liverpool for the night.  I think I have a meeting with my vampire clan tomorrow.  Sunday I go to a thing called "Potted Potter", which is a condensed version of all of the Harry Potter books, I think.

Next week I'm going to a Terry Pratchett book signing on Thursday, Friday is a friend's birthday, and Saturday is my vampire LARP convocation!  Phew.

This is on top of teaching, and I just started my teacher training course.

So that's why I'm not around much at the moment.

That sounds like a ton of fun.

I got a signed copy of THUD!, had to buy a second copy so I wouldn't mess it up accidentally while reading. Hehe.

I <3 Pratchett (for those who don't know, he's a comedic fantasy writer who's stories also have a fair bit of satire, great stories, and his books can be read in pretty much any order.)

He doesn't visit the US very often, so I feel privledged. However, he once joked that in the UK, unsigned copies of his books are rarer than signed ones.

Currently, my three big "game mechanic" goals are grinding up my new pet Huntress (Condor Dragon), waiting on my BE contact to get stuff to make a Rancor for me from some legacy NDA and I'm helping VIGIL with treasure map runs in hopes of getting one of the colored buff stones for lighting the cantina on the Holowood Star.

RPwise the most interesting thing seems to be Grim's attempt to fool Maifez into thinking he's engaged to Alorana.  This has come up a few times at social events.  Aside from that he's busy working on his ship or working a few outside contracts to make money on the side.

OOC:  This is my third week now with HGS, and I can honestly say I am having a great time.  The dedication to the guild and the RP community at large by everyone is truly something.  And now that I'm finally getting over this head cold and can almost put two coherent thoughts together again, I hope I can be more helpful with all of the various projects going on.

IC:  Now that I'm feeling comfortable in Alorana's skin and am watching her start to really grow and develop, I would really love to expand her RP.  I'm quite envious seeing so many people hve such rich RP lives with others from all over the server.  I've never been able to find that, and I honestly don't even know how to start to look.  How do you find RP in a community that says in one breath just go do it, and then in the other I don't RP with strangers?  Especially for someone paranoid of being a bother or an intrusion.

Anyway... I'm always very open with my characters, their development, and experiences.  I don't expect or want her life to be all rainbows and roses.  I've also rethought quite a bit on her GCW leanings, and I will just let things run naturally as others around her influence her.

And that is enough random medicated rambling from me for one morning. lol

I'm in the same boat as you.  I've had Thistle on SS since Jan. and find it hard at times to get in with the community at times.  I also don't want to come across as intruding.  I must say though HGS makes it very easy to get in with the guild! <3 HGS.

Now...I've got some major changes to my characters, mostly OOC.

Thistle:  She will re-injure her knee and be forced from dancing.  She'll then decide to attend college for fashion.  This means OOC she'll respec to tailor.  Because of this she'll release Charleigh as her clothing slave.

Charleigh:  She will accept Thistle's encouragement to move to a bigger city to pursue larger fashion dreams.  She will then leave the galaxy.  OOC she'll be *gasp* deleted.


I've been really tossing the idea around for a new toon and Charleigh is the one I"m least attached to and really has no background.  Thistle will remain in HGS and I will still be on her quite a bit.  I'm going to really try and do this tailor shop right with her.  She still has musty dance and theatrical 1/2 so can participate in a few things.   I'll send out a guild mail before I send Charleigh away.

Lona was bombarded in Eisley with employeement applications. She has hired Khalon to be her personal bodyguard.

The Studio has hired it's first Wookiee (on Starsider) in the newgalaxy as well as work out an agreement with a Hapan Princess, who willserve as the diplomatic representative of the Studio, should HGS haveto holofilm in distant planets.

OOC-wise I'm working on capping out on the Galactic Moon coins. It'sreally hard since I get bored and want to RP instead. Iaggo is keepingme company though in groupchat.

I'm currently in the middle of planning the Whahrracao ooww Rawh'Annarrad  event (which is basically Wookiee Halloween and is set for Oct 25 at 4PM Pacific) and the Wroshyr Seed Harvest Festival (November 8 at 4 PM Pacific), both on Intrepid.

I'm also starting to work on plans for this years Life Day celebrations.  This year, I'll be running an event on Intrepid, plus helping to plan something on Starsider and TC Prime.  In addition, there will be multiple dates for Life Day Caroling on Intrepid and Starsider.   More on this when Halloween and the Wroshyr Seed Harvest Festival are over.

My afternoons and early evenings are dedicated to Trick or Treating, then coming to SS for some RP 4-5 nights a week.   Grapirrr has dropped a few harvestors with the goal of being able to open a shop on Starsider in a couple of weeks.

In RL, my BF's birthday is coming up on Nov 8th, and his daughter's is a few weeks after.  And, of course, there are all the RL holiday goings. 

All this is loads of fun, and I am having a great time, but look forward to things calming down somewhat so I can spend more time on Starsider, getting into RP and setting up houses and my shop.

Been a while since my last update.

OOC:  Currently I've been busy with RL and other games.  Mount & Blade (PC) ate up a huge chunk of my time and hot on the heels of that Saint's Row 2 (PS3) rolled up with the big kicker Fallout 3 (PS3) right behind it.  I haven't played even one of these games to the point I'm tired of it yet!  Yikes.  And then RL stuff on top of that...haven't had alot of quality SWG time lately.  It could still be a while. 

Personal SWG goals.  I really need to get the Meatlumps thing going.  I was going to play through that with a couple other folks but it's so easy I may just save that for solo content when I'm bored.  I'm also level grinding a pet Rancor on and off.  I'm a bit itchy to try out some of the heroics and see how they work - there are some good Officer rewards in one including the invaluable General's Set of jewelry which gives me a chance at regenerating a party's Action every so often among other things.   With the HGS success at getting those backpacks on Kashyyyk...sky's the limit.  Lastly, I've still got a small pile of treasure maps, all L90 and all on Dantooine, I'd like to get through at some point.

IC:  Grim's always wandering off.  As a pilot and something of a freelancer he's always hard to nail down.  More of a colorful supporting cast player than a crucial creative artist in the HGS stable he can probably get away with this fairly well.  As long as he's around when really needed that is.  He often does little jobs on the side and does have an array of connections all over the universe so an MIA Grim isn't the most shocking thing in the world.

When he comes back he'll act as if he wasn't gone at all.  Or he'll come up with some story about where he was and how it was completely out his control, don'tchaknow.

Anyhow, hope to see you guys soon.  Just need to get these other, wonderful, games out of my system for now and knock RL back into line too.
