The Concept Spotlight are a series of articles highlighting the probabilities and the role of a particular character concept and theme. Here we talk about what it is, what it does and how it exists in the roleplay setting. From civilians to warriors, the Concept Spotlight intends to touch on every theme in your Star Wars roleplay galaxy. Eventually.


Concept Spotlight

The Civilian

Captain Shanks Would you consider a spacer (smuggler, pirate, cargo pilot) a civilian?
Vexter Varkus Indeed! I agree with what Qog said, and also support the view presented in the article. I would also like to add that pr...
Qog Wow, I really loved this. I started off my roleplay hobby by playing mostly civilian characters - my first proper long-t...

Community Highlight: Phe & Conash

This time I am happy to highlight Phe and Conash, two roleplayers who have dedicated their time to keeping up the Artisan's Rest. Advertised as a neutral hub to kick back and socialise in, the Rest is open every Wednesday for open roleplay.

When speaking to both of them with these questions, their passion for keeping the Rest open and helping the community was obvious. Thank you to both for their dedication to keeping this part of the Darth Malgus roleplay circuit going!

Holoscopes - Issue 3

Lae posted Feb 5, 18

Ladies and gentlemen, beings and sentients of our fair Galaxy. From the far reaches of the Wild Space and beyond, I - Mystic Mog - have come forth to share with you the wisdom I have seen in the stars themselves. The Force has blessed me with foresight of the cosmos, and from that I divine forth what is in store for you the next month.

Heed this warning, dear readers, for the ebb and flow of the Force is forever changing. The future is a finnicky thing that even the most talented of us fail to fully interpret its meaning:

Iradox Spot on for the The Force.
Vexter Varkus I'm a Nexu (Leo), and your holoscope was exact to the latter. Please continue posting those!



A middle-aged Mirialan woman wearing a traveller’s outfit appears on the screen. She smiles at the viewer in a practiced manner before introducing herself:

“Greetings citizens of the galaxy, I am Razhal Qiru, reporter for Independent Galactic News. Today I find myself on the planet Generis, where a colonist settlement of twi’leks have been trying to survive for fifteen years without contact to the wider galaxy. Once, they sent a distress call to the Galactic Republic, but due to the ongoing war, the Republic never responded – until now.”

The camera shifts to provide the viewers with an image of a small village where local twi’leks, Republic soldiers, Jedi, and volunteer work in unison.

“Join me for three insightful interviews: First with Commander Braya Yasra, seniormost coordinator of the project on Generis; second, with Ranger Captain Risa Numarkus, who is the colonist in charge of the locals; and thirdly, an interview with two volunteers that provide their impression on the on-going operation, one of them a Jedi, another and everyday man from Coruscant.”

Community Highlight: Thrautana

It's time for another Community Highlight, and this time I managed to persuade the wonderful Thrautana - also known as Vaken, Information Central, and Empress only knows how many other names - to answer a few questions. 

Thrautana is a profilic roleplayer on the Darth Malgus server on both factions. Currently their open initiatives include The Vaken Project, the Concourse Market Day, and The Dealer's Den, all of which are organized with the awe-inspiring hivemind that is The Concourse Commerce Coalition. This group of players drive a lot more roleplay than many likely realise and their work is well worth checking out. 

Thrautana is also working some Enjin magic by being one of our community thread organizers on the DMRP forums - obligatory shout out for all their hard work. If you have read it, Thrautana has likely already catalogued it.

Information Central Thank you to Qog and whomsoever out there recommended me for this(interrogations begin soon)! And thank you to everyone ...
Vexter Varkus If someone ever deserved a highlight, it was definitely Vaken! I admire the work you do for this community, I really thi...
