Where in the real life world do you live? I live in France, in Saint Dizier.
How long have you played Star Wars Galaxies? I've been playing SWG for 4 years now.
What other MMOs have you played? I have tested some MMOs but didn't play them. My preferred game is still SWG.
What type of work do you do? I'm currently studying. I'm in the "lycée" Blaise Pascal, I don't know what's the equal is in USA. But that's where people that are 16 years old go. :)
How long is your typical gaming session when playing Star Wars Galaxies? If it's during the weekend, usually about 8 hours per day.
What does a typical Star Wars Galaxies day consist of for you? On the live servers it consists of PvPing and doing some quests. On TCPrime, it consists of some beast master experimentations, running harvesters, and testing new things added recently such as heroics.
What was the race and profession of your very first character? My first character was a human. I'm not 100% about the profession but that was something between medic, marksman, or brawler, and my first "advanced profession" was creature handler.
What got you into gaming and what sort of games do you like the most? I discovered this game when my brother (Farden) started playing it. After a time he left for some reason and I continued playing. I like FPSs and MMORPGs.
What other hobbies or activities do you take part in, other then playing Star Wars Galaxies? Other than playing SWG? Well, I'm playing some other games such as Counter Strike Source and mods of Half Life 2: Deathmatch. Apart from that I enjoy going out with friends and having fun.
What is your highest character level in Star Wars Galaxies? Most of my characters are already level 90. Even if it was hard to do on TCPrime, it's something you have to do and once it's done you're really happy. :)
What race and profession is your main character? My main character on Chimaera (my very first character) is a medic human and he's also a beast master. But my main on TCPrime is a medic Rodian and beast master as well. My Rodian wasn't meant to be my main character, but now that he is level 90 with a very good stuff I cannot change.
What do you like the most about the profession you have chosen for your main character? I really like to have a lot of heals always ready. I love to assist others and to be able to save them when it's needed. I wouldn't like to depend on someone else; I know I'll always be able to save myself by using my pet's taunt or by healing myself
What faction is your main character? All my characters are now Rebel. When I started SWG I was Imperial, andthen I met a very nice guy that helped me to make my way through SWG. He taught me some things and convinced me to go Rebel, so big /cheer to Nuc. I wouldn't be Rebel if he wasn't here!
What is your favorite player owned ship? I don't play alot of space, but my favorite player owned ship before the gunships was YT-2400. Now with the gunships it's between YT-2400 and the Rebel gunship. I wish there was a YT-2000, which is my preferred Star Wars ship.
What is your favorite ground vehicle? My preferred are the AV-21 and armored faction BARC.
How did you choose your main character's name? That's a good question, but I don't really have a good answer. I searched with my brother a name that sounded good to my ears, and I found Xiam.
Which current professions in Star Wars Galaxies have you NOT played? You mean in all my Star Wars life? I've tested most of the professions but that was long time ago in the NGE. With the last patches I've only played medic and commando.
What is your favorite expansion? My favorite expansion is Rage of the Wookiees. Kashyyyk is a very nice world and there are a lot of beautiful beasts and places.
What is your favorite planet? Well, I was born on Naboo, and it's still my favorite.
What is your favorite NPC? Oh that's a very good question, the Rebel recruiter. :) And if you count pets as NPCs, my favorite pet is narglatch.
What are the most credits you have ever spent on purchasing a single item for one of your characters? I don't really remenber in what I spend my credits, but I do know that I spend a lot of money in BM stuff. :)
Do you have an item you no longer use but keep around for nostalgic reasons? If so, what is it and why do you keep it? I do have an old rank sash with nice stats for pre-CU that I kept because I looted it on my first nightsister elder.
What do you like best about Star Wars Galaxies? Well, what I liked mostly in SWG was the pre-CU but now that it's gone, I love pets and heroic instances.
Describe your best experience playing Star Wars Galaxies. I think my best experience was long time ago when I discovered the Death Watch Bunker. I went in it with a group of 20 of my friend, and we killed a lot of mobs but we failed anyway. I cannot describe it more as it was long time ago, but we had a lot of fun.
