Macbeth the Usurper

Star Wars Galaxies

I broke down a bit and picked up Star Wars Galaxies. This is my first massive multiplayer game. I did some muds back in the day, but they weren't this.

My original concept was combat medic, except that things aren't quite what they seem. I have now abandonded that idea and am toying with toying. That is, I don't know what I will like or what I will like about it. In the end, I suspect that I will have the Daggerfall problem with the game: I will just grow bored and move on. I am not into power-gaming or wrestling with complicated systems for a long time. I can go to work to do that. In the meantime, I am exploring what it takes to make stuff. The system is not obvious, so I struggle with figuring it out.
