Community Highlight: Jarec Davies
This month I spoke to Jarec, an awesome roleplayer who definitely did not bribe me to say that.
One of the friendliest people I've had the opportunity to speak to, Jarec is a genuinely creative, open person and a solid writer in our community. It's always fun to find someone who doesn't only play a character well, but has the aptitude to keep a story going and find something to appreciate about each interaction and roleplay consequence. His advice for roleplay is also worth reading on for if for that alone.
Jarec also runs the Station Nightside: Jobs Board thread, which is a thread for IC jobs being advertised at an Exchange owned space station within the Carto Asteroid Field. Check it out for good rp opportunities or just to keep up with the sort of awful, terrible illegal activities currently festering in the galaxy.
Curious about more? Check out his Q&A with the link below (and look out for that sweet irl shot of his face at the bottom)
How did you become a Star Wars fan?
Star Wars is strong in my family. My Father has it, I have it, and my sister has it. Brought up in a family of nerds it was inevitable that some of that was going to rub off on me and it most certainly has. I think like most people here I was brought up with Star Wars, surrounded by it, bound by it-- Ok, enough with the Star Wars quotes. It stuck as well, it's difficult to shake off and whilst I might vanish for a while and roleplay in other games or however much I might badmouth the new films or the story of SWTOR or whatever else Star Wars related... I always end up coming back. I think SWTOR and Star Wars RP in general holds something that's quite special and perhaps is reserved for something so culturally important as a universe like this. When you have that really great roleplay moment on SWTOR you can't quite nail what, but you can comfortably go "That was Star Wars." and you know you've nailed the right feel.
