    Hello everyone. Star Wars takes a large part of my free time with art, reading, writing, costuming... and outside of work I like to unwind with like-minded people. I just want to be able to discuss the things I love without people expecting me to produce anything like a drawing or costume photos. I used to be active on the TFN forums under a different user name, several years ago, people were very kind and supportive to me but I don't want to go back to that identity for now.

    I know this is kind of a pointless message for you all but for me it's a way to start fresh and just enjoy the forum experience again.

    About art: I used to draw a lot of Mandalorians until I got sick of it.

    About writing: I wrote a short series of fan fiction after reading the Republic Commando novels by Karen Traviss.

    About costuming: I assembled a 501st-approved Scout Trooper costume and am currently working on a personalized Stormtrooper suit. Hopefully next year I may attend Celebration VI, if everything goes as planned. It's still a long way to go but I already bought the tickets, and hotel is booked. That should be guarantee enough, right? I don't know why I'm so anxious.

    Not gonna say more about myself because I'm having confidentiality issues at the moment, it must be work-related, or maybe it's just the bad weather (I live in Europe)... or I'm taking this trooper cosplay a little too far. It might be all of those things.

    Nevertheless I'm happy to be here and I have no expectations whatsoever.

    Thanks for not lurking anymore. I was wondering who had been digging through my garbage.

    Have fun, hit the spots the 2 ladies pointed out to you, and avoid any unintentional innuendo in this sentence.

    Thanks all of you for the warm welcome, I know it must be early in the morning across the ocean. I've been a good soldier and went to those areas, I'll probably need some time to gather the courage to contribute more, especially in the Fan Art section.

    I have a question though: is there any part of the boards where people discuss that old online game called Star Wars Galaxies?

    MyKe1138: I wouldn't have noticed them if you hadn't said anything... about the spots :p

    ...and, yeah... I typed that sentence, thought "Good grief, that sounds horrible", but couldn't think of any other way to type it at this time of the morning. Good luck to you. PM a Mod if you have issues or ask in here if you have any questions.

    Oh, you'll fit in well :D

    I'm not sure, but you might try [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/p1]Games: Videogames[/link] (commonly referred to as "Games").

    I'm in and out of Fan Art quite a bit; it's a really cool place! Don't be shy; share your artwork!!

    You know, I have, a long time ago on my first account here and it turned out that it gave me the confidence to keep improving and developing my skills. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_art/b10020/23389850/p1]Here's the thread[/link] if you're curious. So I owe this community a lot.

    If I feel like an ego-boost I might post a couple sketches but I already have my deviantart page for that. Random young people keep requesting drawings from me even though I stated that I'm busy and not taking any commissions. The fans they are resilient, not taking no for an answer. I get new emails every time I upload something. I guess that's why I didn't go pro and just got myself a daytime job.

    Enough of me rambling, time to distract myself with some gaming nostalgia...
