    Hey y'all, I'm kind of new to the whole forum interaction style as I've never actually participated in any kind of website like this. So in the end I thought what better place to start than in the Star Wars community?

    Star Wars media in general, but perhaps that's a given. I'm a big fan of the Clone Wars period era as that is my favorite between the OG trilogy era and the Sequel Trilogy era, so that could narrow it down. As for activities I really like writing and reading and I see the site has forums for that which I have already checked out, good stuff.

    Lots of writing here. Both RPG and FanFic depending if you like participatory writing or not. Hooper McFinney's is a great place to visit for RPG stuff.

    Do you have interest in other franchises other than SW?

    Besides Star Wars the ones off the top of my head would most likely be the other big franchises. Fantasy like Lord of the Rings and Song of Ice and Fire alongside superhero stuff and many more. I'm much more of a fantasy nerd than I am a sci-fi buff however I always liked Star Wars for that very reason as it toes the lines between sci-fi and fantasy and has a genuinely interesting world and setting you can get into. It's also the reason why I like writing in said world, so many opportunities.

    Just a note that we have a non-SW fanfic forum as well as SW.

    I saw, thanks for the info. I'll make sure to post some stuff there or take a look if I find anything that sparks my interest. I'm still trying to figure everything out, how things work etc. and reading through the rules. I did just create a new thread and posted some stuff I had already written up however I'm not 100% certain it was on the correct forum.

    The mods will move it if needed. Just watch out for their Ban Hammer®. Thor, himself, would envy such a weapon.

    @Winter1231505 welcome! I myself enjoy the forum format for its fortuitous forms of fare.

    ... got a little carried away there I guess :p anyway, what’s your favorite Star Wars character?

    Depends on the Era. If we're talking strictly Clone Wars then its nothing new to say my favorites are the clones themselves. Original comment, I know, but the show really did do a tremendously good job at showing the more human aspects of them all. To delve into more Legends territory, you will never find a biggger fan of Revan than me. I don't know what it is about him, but the notion of a Jedi-turned-Sith turned... well, what you choose, adn then becoming so powerful that he more or less manages to form his own path between both Dark and Light is the kind of hipster third way stuff I adore. Not to mention the KOTOR sequel's Kreia, who is, in my eyes, one of the best writen mentor characters in media period.

    Not to worry, I have a friend from Perth so the woes of European to Australian time-zones are more than well known to me. Thank you for the warm welcome.

    Just watch the double posting mate, it's frowned upon here. All good, you can edit your posts for a time and if you wish to quote, you can do two in one post ;)

    @Winter1231505 Oh I love the kotor games. I don't think I could pick a favorite character from them, though maybe it would be Jolee.
