How Safe is Nar Shaddaa?

Kraethas Nova Yes, so much yes. Even though this month's issue wasted some space on a nobody label whiskey (<3 Aresand), I...

Concept Spotlight

The Criminal - Part II

Picking up from last month's issue, the second part of the Criminal Character Spotlight highlights some of the troubles and conflicts criminal characters have to deal with as a detriment on their lifestyle and other key aspects of criminal identity, such as organizations, independents and infamy.

Oblitus This is an interesting summation. To say that a life of crime is a lonely one gives birth to an interesting paradox of C...
Vizu My favourite part about playing a criminal is making up why he or she does what he/she does, and why it's OK. For i...
Ruchira Letane A very thorough look at the criminal construct! Thank you for the article!

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.

The Civilian

Iradox A very interesting read. I recall running into some of your civilian characters both on Imp and Rep side, and very much ...
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...

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!

Keep on reading for the Q&A.

Captain Shanks I really need to visit the Rest now! I know its been around for a while. Great job you two!
Novsta As someone who helps out occasionally at the Rest, I'd like to make it known that these two are awesome and create ...

Hello guys, welcome to Malgus-RP.

A lot has happened since our last update post. There's been a lot of discussion behind the scenes but it's been very stagnant everywhere else, and we're fully aware of that. We are now planning to move ahead with a schedule for articles going forward so the front page has a bit more life on it.

However, in order for that to happen we have made some changes behind the scenes so the cogs can start ticking away. Lae, our beloved overlord, will be stepping down to a Reporter role and will no longer be on the administration team. I can confirm only minimal blackmail took place for this to happen.

In charge of news reporting in his place, Iradox will be stepping in to review all content for the website and schedule articles with our Reporter team as our Editor-in-Chief.

For whatever bizarre reason, in light of the above, it will be me replacing both the Website Administrator and Forum Administrator positions as of soon-after-this-post.

You may be wondering what this means, and I can answer that quite quickly. Not much, really. We are keeping the same Moderators, and Dalle will remain our steadfast Chat #Badmin with no changes being made to his role.

We will be looking for a new Forum Moderator to take over my old position however, so applications for that are now open until we find a good fit.

To all who do not recognise my name - don't worry, no one else does either. It's lovely to meet you all and I hope to screw up slightly less than the expected average.

Don't hurt me.


Kathryl Let me say that I honestly do not expect you or the staff to publish any kind of content. By all means feel free to do i...
Vexter Varkus Congrats Qog! Thank you guys for keeping the spirit alive! Keep on keepin' it on!
Militus Good luck with all the responcibilities, I'll be rootin'!
