More Galaxies Screenshots

I said I'd be posting more pics soon. And here we go. For this batch, I'm focusing on my friends. All three of these guys live in the same town with me and we've all been buds for quite a while.


The first one is Schlona (shown in the pic above -he's the one on the left). Originally a Bounty Hunter, has has recently switched to Commando. We have a bit of friendy resentment to each other as he's a Rebel and I'm an Imperial. But we still get along pretty well.


This is my friend Nakiel (again on he left). Currently working on making a fortune by Smuggling, he has to have two houses to store all his stuff. Also an Imperial, but of lower standing, he calls me "Sir" most of the time. I kinda like it. However, I know that Schlona is secretly trying to persuade him to change over. And I don't think he's really getting all that money from smuggling...


And this is my other friend, Asraizi (on the left again -by the green droid). Unlike us "normal" types who play humans, Asraizi is a Bothan, which is best described as a dog-person. He's working on becoming the best Scout in the galaxy. After visiting his house, I asked why he had no bed. To which he replied, "The world is my home, every bit of ground my bed."


I snapped this pic and felt it belonged with this set. This is me looking over as my friend Asraizi, after being incapacitated, finds a bull ronto on top of him. It was really quite dramatic. Once we killed the ronto it made a very satisfying (and loud) thud when it fell. On top of my friend's body. You can see his arm protruding out from under the ronto's neck. I laughed a long time. I tried to hide it, but my countless typos that followed only made it evident that I could not control myself.

Another Galaxies Screenshot



Here I am sitting on the steps of the Jedi Temple Ruins on Dantooine.
I have just caused a big change in my character's life.

You probably think I became a Jedi.
Wrong.

See... I have this tendancy to shoot first... then think...

When I first started playing the game a couple months ago I wanted to work for Jabba. I thought it would have been cool to be a smuggler or bounty hunter working for him. And I'd get to rub elbows with Boba Fett (one of my heroes).
Well... it just turned out that I stumbled upon a mission to kill some guys that were causing trouble in the outskirts of Mos Eisley. I didn't think much of factions at the time. And once I finished plowing through their resistance I discovered they were Jabba's men and that I had totally screwed my chances of working for him. So I ended up trying to work for his competitor.
To no avail...

Anyway... this brings us to last night's fateful "Oops, I did it again" moment.

I was exploring Dantooine and found the Jedi Temple Ruins. Just outside of it was a man who wanted to give me a quest. The quest was to kill this "horrible beast" that was guarding the temple. I figured it was a test to see if I could prove worthy enough to enter the temple.
Wrong!

It really was a "guardian of the temple". And I killed it. This ancient reptile thing. All dead now.

I went back to the guy and he told me to do another mission for him, during which I discovered that I've started down the path of the dark side. Oh, joy!

Last I talked with him, he wanted me to kill who he said was the last Jedi alive in a cave nearby. I just left.

After I sat on the steps for a very long time.
Thinking of how royally screwed I was.

In a Galaxy Far, Far Away...



I've actually had some time off from both my jobs over the last day or so. I've worked forty hours since Monday morning.
So, I went and spent some of my well earned free time wandering around Dantooine killing quenkers.

Of course, I'm talking about my playing Star Wars Galaxies. An awesome game. Truly one of the better MMORPGs (Massive Multi-player Online Role-Playing Games- see why they shorten it down?).
Anyway, here are some screenshots of my character, Roebi Asriv:


This is the load screen. I'm currently a Novice Rifleman. I still can't decide if I'm gonna go towards Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Sniper or Master Marksman.


This is me at my favorite hangout, The Lucky Despot. I may be re-locating if I can find an Imperial-ran casino. Tip: don't play the Lugjack (Slots) machine. You'll never win anything substantial. The Jubilee Wheel (Roulette), however, is highly reccomended as I've doubled my money quite a few times on it.


This is me wandering around on Dantooine. I'm trying to find a nice spot to take a piss. Note: I always carry my gun into the woods. You never know who, or what, you'll run into.


And here I am enjoying speeder-skiing on Dantooine. Yes, I know my gun's still equipped. I was on my way to killing some assassins. I kinda got sidetracked when I found the water.
