Hello from cold and windy Kansas!

Hello there~! My name's Acyrotin. I saw SWTOR when it was first released, but given financial problems, I sadly could not join the community at the time. Now, however, with the free-to-play and my financial problems temporarily fixed, I decided to finally come and make my own little mark on the game.

I am not a newcomer to the Star Wars world, per se. I've watched Episodes I-VI, read whatever comics happened to be on the shelves of the public library, and played many video games. Jedi Knight Jedi Academy, Knights of the Old Republic, Force Unleashed 1 and 2, Commando, I believe I played KOTOR 2, though I can't entirely remember....

Anywho, I find the Star Wars world fascinating. I admit, I'm not the most knowledgeable in terms of lore. But I do enjoy the universe and the creativity that has gone into it.

Now, as for me personally. I am an artist and writer, and I do enjoy roleplaying. I have only have experience in one other MMO, which is DC Universe Online. I actually have a social anxiety issue which makes it difficult for me to speak to people I don't know, particularly with initiating conversations. But, I hope to change that! Once I actually get to know people, I do enjoy chatting.

So, I hope to get a warm welcome here and find my way into the community!

Hello Acyrotin, welcome to SWTOR!
Sorry I did not catch your post earlier
If you liked KotOR you'll probably like SWTOR as it is the spiritual sequel with a few references. You don't have to group in this game but it's always nice to have a little help here and there so don't be afraid to ask!

Hi and welcome to SWTOR! Much of this game can played solo, so you don't have to worry about grouping up with people until you are comfortable with doing so.
