Update 03/31/08: I am taking an extended break from SWG. Will it be for good? Who knows, but until Spy is in better PvE shape, Sefi will be taking an extended trip journeying in deep space.
My signature for the Star Wars Galaxies forum:
Do you really want to download it? Probably not, but I just wanted to post a high-res version and offer some of my current thoughts on SWG.
I'm shocked to say it but I'm playing Star Wars Galaxies again for the first time in nearly two years. As some of you may know, my inspiration for Daru was my Jump To Lightspeed beta character. Once she was deleted (with the end of the beta), I began to miss her, but it wasn't until a year or so afterwards that I found the capabilities to bring her back to life! You could say I rebuilt her, stronger, faster, better looking than before!
So, if you play, look for me on Bria as Sefi Ar'lya. If you haven't played, well I recommend giving it a try. If you used to play, but left because of all the bullshit the developers put the game through, I just want to point out that they have had nearly an entirely new team in charge for the past 6-8 months and these new guys really seem to know what they're doing. They're finally focused on making the existing player base happy, instead of chasing after that ever elusive "untapped audience." And surprisingly, doing so is actually bringing back old players...
I'm writing a quick guide for SWGVault for returning vets and what they need to know to turn off the ghetto FPS aspects of the game to return it to the MMORPG-like gameplay that it used to have (and still does, although its buried).
Somewhat surprisingly, I've discovered my work has a few fans over there in the SWG community! I am considering taking up signature work commissions, but before I do that I owe at least one long time fan a requested image. He knows who he is and he's been waiting patiently for a very long time...
I was thinking about coming back for Chapter 6... to at least see if it grows on me. Of course my guild is dead... I am Druu Scandana on Naritus. How is the game so far?

I managed to play the game slightly for about 10 mins on a friends account a LONG time ago, i was addicted, Didnt have the money...I played it on my Brothers it was...Dissapointing, But i'm playing again, it actually seems to be fun now, You just need friends...

Is the Force strong with this one?
Galaxies is always a game I have been curious and intrigued about. However, due to my PC being old (and when I say old, I mean OLD) I have never had the chance. When I finally buy a modern PC later this year I will look into the game.
I love RPGs and I love Star Wars. The whole Star Wars universe is just ripe for role-playing. I will be interested to see whether I can play out my Dark Jedi that I crafted in the other games.

I don't play, and honestly I fear this will cut into your rendering time. Suggestion, hit the "render" button, THEN enter the game (assuming your rig can handle that).
As for the SWG following, today a google search found my name and yours (and radiant CG) on some SWG forum. It's funny how things spread...

Yeah i actually found this site by accident MONTHS ago. Checked it out every other day or so since. Then saw your returning to SWG announcent and was like "woah" lol
Then i see you ingame talking to Raax(good friend of mine for years, since his LD days with you) and that made the "woah" even bigger lol
You talked to my gf ingame yesterday i believe. lol
When you have time add -ace- to your friendslist and send me a tell.

It was great 4 years ago... I was one of the last of my guild to leave the game 3 1/2 years later... To me it lost a lot of what made it great... though I have heard they have made great strides to return it to its former glory. Unfortunately it is too late for most die hard vets.
I may log in this weekend just to see though.

Nope, DAWUSS. That's not exactly correct. What they are doing is packing up houses of inactive accounts to clear up some land for the people who actively play. All it does is puts your house (w/ all items and decorations intact) into your datapad. No wookiees will be harmed in the process. Well, maybe a few.
Edit: AND, the cutoff date for houses that are being packed up is July 2006. Since you previously played until August, your house should stay right where it is. ;) But I'd love to hang out in game.

My toons are all on Ahazi
And I know (at least before I left) that Bria and Ahazi liked each other like Michigan and Ohio State.
And I'm not too worried about losing my house spot... I picked it in the boonies of Rori

I used to play but I don't have the money, If you create a character in the Narutis Galaxy, you may catch Jart Wrestpant hanging around Lok or Dantooine, but not right now. It sucks, 14 buck a month.

hehe, I play a cute little Rebel Bothan too, but on Gorath ;) . And my first Mastered Professions at SWG US-Release was Ranger/Rifleman ;) . Then I was over 1 1/2 Years Master Bounty Hunter, later as it was Possible Master Pistoleer too (long time befor the CU comes around). Yet he is a Spy.
