    My name is John. I'm 36 and I live in Los Angeles with my wife and three kids. I am a network administrator for an entertainment company in Beverly Hills.

    I have been gaming on computers for over 20 years, first on my mom's original Macintosh SE, then on my own Apple IIc (the first notebook computer!) I've been a PC gamer since the early 90's.

    Just got into SWG and have been playing and designing levels for UT2K4 a lot recently. Favorites over the years have mostly been RTS games -Warcraft, Starcraft, Age of Empires, Rise of Nations, Total Annihilation (loved that one!), etc. I first learned how to upgrade and tweak PC's so that I could get Darklands to run on my 486 without crashing.

    Anyway, I'm glad I found this community. Sometimes I feel a little old playing UT against the 1337 kiddies. It's nice to know others have to worry about their kids leaning over their shoulder while they play.

    Hey S1NGULARITY,

    Welcome, hope you enjoy your stay at TOG :D .

    Just need to read the sticky at the top of this forum which has links to the TOG FAQ and AUP, once read, post back here that you have read and agree with them. Then one of the admin magicians will come and cast their spell on you and make you a member.

    Once a member you will have access to the private forums, there is one for each game with all sorts of info, who to contact etc. 8)

    Cheers...

    ACK! I meant to say that. I don't have much forum experience, so apologies.

    I have read the FAQ and agree to the terms of the AUP. All very sensible, if you ask me.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Greetings and welcome :D

    What server do you play SWG on? We are (for the most part) on Valcyn.

    I literally just started a couple of days ago with the Fileplanet 14-day trial. I have a hybrid Marksman/Artisan on Corbantis, but if there is a community on Valcyn I may just start over there. I will almost definitely be buying the full game within the next few days.

    How long have you been in-game, RogueSlayer?

    Welcome mate.

    I do suggest that you start a character on Valcyn. This way you can get involved into many of the TOG things we try to run on a regular basis... plus, the big bonus is that you can be admitted to the PA and be given the <TOG> tag next to your name.

    And don't feel shy about posting on these forums. You'll find that almost all of us were new to posting on forums once.

    Just remember, TOG for you shouldn't be just about SWG alone, we've got a big wide community that participates in many games and these forums helps to bring us all together and also help to provide some interraction between all of us in a single place. :)

    I have been in-game for since the second week after release.

    We have about 50 or so active members on Valcyn right now. We also have our own small city (Mos TOG) set up on Tat. Once you are a full member, visit our pivate form and take a look around. :D

    Thanks again for the warm welcome everyone.

    Derelict: I'm a pretty active gamer. I'm active in UT and will probably be as active as possible in SWG. I'm going to start a new character on Valcyn tonight.

    I'm also really looking forward to World of Warcraft. Comes out the week before my birthday! :D
