    Bkly, have you taken a look at the first page? Is there any oldbie that might be interesting for you? :)

    This seems like a good way to get started so I would like to volunteer for adoption.

    My interests lies mostly in EU literature and the video games to extent. I have read only a couple book and comics, Tales of the Jedi, Lost Tribe of the Sith, most of the Clone Wars novels, Truce at Bakura, and the Courtship of Princess Leia. My knowledge about everything else is limited but I'd like to learn more about it. Joining the EU community also seems like a lot of fun but I'm not really sure which club to join. Aside from that I know about the films of course, I prefer the classic Trilogy over the Prequels.

    I should probably also add that my english is at a moderate level but my grammar might be a little off at times.

    Hopefully this is enough information. I don't have any preferences for a particular oldbie.

    Do you adopt? You seem like the head mover and shaker here so if you're available that would be cool.

    Hey Shira, about the EUC. The clubs/groups are basically fan clubs. If I recall you mentioned something about loving the Old Republic era, so if you like the character Darth Revan, the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/eu_community/b10194/26125103/p1/?2809]Acolytes of Revan[/link] could be an interesting start. While the main focus is Revan, they do consider themselves the KOTOR fan club as well. Unfortunately a lot of the clubs seem to be oriented towards the NJO/LOTF/FOTJ characters...

    Shira, I've sent out a PM to an oldbie. So you should get a PM soon from him. Just let me know, if you doesn't hear anything within the next few days or in case the pairing doesn't fit for you. :)


    Bklyn, sadly I don't adopt at the moment. So you need to look for another person. And remember, it's not important, if one wears colors or not. :)

    Hiya!

    Katana Sundancer, hoping to be accepted as a Padawan learner before she gets shipped off to Agricorps. lol

    I've been registered here for over a year now, but I've mostly been lurking to read the fan fiction. It'd be wonderful to have someone to aim any questions at.

    I'm into Fanfiction, mostly, but am interested in the character discussions as well. My fave characters are Wedge Antilles (and his girls, of course), Luke, Mara Jade and Ben Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi and Siri Tachi.

    Umm.... what else about me? Anything else you need to know?

    I've updated the first page. Feel free to check, if I missed anything, since some things happened by PM. :)


    Katana and Bklyn, I've added you to the first page (list of free newbies), but feel free to contact anyone of the list of free oldbies. I'll check, if I can help you finding a master soon later on today. :)

    Hey Hazel, welcome to the Newbie Adoption! Link works just fine by the way ;)

    As for a getting a Master, the first page has been recently updated so the current available Masters should be listed. A general rule of thumb, take the initiative and PM someone on the list, not all of them keep a constant watch in here. Also, it's not because they aren't active in a forum you want to be active in that they can't help you get settled around the boards in general. :)

    By the way, you mentioned writing fanfiction in your speech and, while I wouldn't put it pass me to misintrepret what you wrote, you're planning on writing SW-related fiction when the plot bunnies are organized, yes? If so, then perhaps when you feel ready you may want to take a look over [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/22600913/p1/?1868]here[/link]. It's basically their own kind of adoption program.

    Skiara, yeah I thought so too, just didn't want to put it out so bluntly. I had thought of bumping a few other threads back on the first page, but they found their way back on their own. You trained them well :p

    Thanks for the tip, Fallen. I'll look into it.


    And for clarification, YES, I'm planning on writing SW-related fiction (once I get my ideas organized).

    Hi everybody!
    I'm MaraForever, and I'd like to be apprenticed to someone.
    Mostly, I came to the JC to lurk around the fanfic, fanart, and costuming. I love the site and want to become more involved in the discussions and other boards.
    I'm eager to learn more about the EU, since I'm pretty new to it. So far I've mostly read lotf and hand of thrawn. My favourite characters are Mara, Kyp Durron, Han Solo, Tycho and Winter Celchu, and Shada D'ukal.

    Any master would be absolutely great
