Week of 6/14/2013
Mea Culpa - Our characters have probably done a lot of wrong or perceived wrong, one way or another. Sometimes they think an apology is necessary. Sometimes they really don't. Sometimes they may want to apologize even when they didn't do anything. Sometimes the wronged party accepts it; sometimes they reject it; sometimes they're not there to hear it. Write about a time when your character or someone they know was prompted to apologize.

And, as ever,
Night of the Living Prompt: Keep on using any prompt you like! Check out the list at http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...postcount=1675.
This week's featured NotLP:
Hidden Talents - All of our characters are good fighters, but people are good at more than one thing. What else are they good at - and how do their friends and family react to learning about this hidden skill?

It took me a second to figure out what you were referring to. Did I offend? With my parenthetical comment? I know I haven’t been posting much in this thread but...then I realized you referred to my other thread.

On topic, though, as the former owner of a difficult-to-pronounce name, I sympathize with Quorian. The Force finds all kinds of ways to test your patience. This one takes the form of a Republic trooper.

Defiance to the Empire: Risky, and yet so, so satisfying.

Now a short NotLP: New Paths for padawan Colran Niral, of the Jedi temple on Nar Shaddaa. Last time I mentioned him he was determinedly cutting off fellow padawan Xar. 400 words, no game spoilers.

Marissalf: Nice to see someone remind the lackeys that not everyone bows to the Emperor, or has to. How did the officer know Mando'a? Dha said "Mandalorian" and he probably froze up right about there, debating whether to let the guy go or call in reinforcements.

Bright: One thing the Jedi seem to be good at, and that's dealing with a problem by pretending it doesn't exist. Instead of showing Colran a different way to heal, Zauvien doesn't teach him at all. However, his jitters--what's going to happen, will I be out of place, what's going to happen while I'm gone--are so very human.

Eee, Consular companions! And Jurial, trying not to enjoy it too much...it's bad to get the ego bound up in these things, at least if you're a Jedi.

A backwards NotLP: Defense for Wynston and Quinn in the Ruth-less timeline, some nineteen years after the class line ends. No game spoilers. 450 words.

The premise of Ruth-less:
