When I first started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic it was November 2013. One of my best friends had started it and I figured: why not? I'd always loved Star Wars. During the month I managed to level a pureblood sith sorcerer to the max level but left the game in Deceber due to a lack of interest. I returned to the game in June of 2014 deciding that this time I would find Rp on my Chiss that I could get into.After two weeks of trawling Vaiken and other spots I ran into Sinclair who came into the Cantina to talk to a fellow Chiss Admiral. Sinclair mentioned OOC he was writing a Chiss guide so I excitedly whispered to him my favorite source I used at the time1. A week later I found him on the ebon-hawk.net chatroom and he was mentioning he had been searching for the guide but was unable to locate it and couldn't recall who had told him about it. Fortunatly I had and still have the magazine it comes from and in my excitment I reminded him that I had given him that hint. I still remember his next response:
I thought maybe I had annoyed him and apologized but no, he was just as excited as I was. I offered him a copy I would then copy a google doc to send him later for his guide.
That was the start of my time on the Csillan Rose and in the years since then I have become more than a contributer to the site. I help run the background work, maintain it, and the close friendships I've made in this community have changed my life for the better in more ways than I can begin to number.
All because of the Csillan Rose.
It's a bit late to offer up a speech of what I'm grateful for on Thanksgiving but I want the members of this community to know I'm grateful for you. We have a small community. But it's full of people who are creative, brilliant, and continue to add to my good memories of the Csillan Rose. I'm always happy to have you here and I wish you all a (belatedly) Happy Thanksgiving!
