Spreading the Holiday Thanks!

Published by under Role Play on Nov. 25. 2011.

((The RP XP with MJ #14))


I hope those of you relative to my time zone here in the U.S. had a spectacular Thanksgiving, and I hope those of you about to try Star Wars: The Old Republic for the first time ever during today’s launch of the Beta Stress Test Weekend have as much fun testing the game as I have.


Since I’ve been tied up with all kinds of holiday fun this week, not to mention all the holiday fun we’ll be experiencing in open–err, I mean ‘weekend‘–beta, I thought I’d make this week’s RP XP with MJ much, much shorter. In fact, I’m going to make it so short I’m not even going to write it.
I’ll be back next week with a very special edition of ((The RP XP with MJ)). Until then, good hunting out there in Betaland! And, if you see someone throw up a “LFG-RP” in General chat, it’s probably me. Come say ‘hi’… In character, of course.
Now, I’ll head out and let these guys take it from here. You’ve probably heard that RolePlayers “hear voices.” Well, sometimes we like to let ’em out. These guys, whom you might recognize, wanted to come out and say a few words about what they’re thankful for….

YULEL, The Smuggler
“Hi, guys! Hope you’re really likin’ the story so far. And, yeah, yeah, I know. I should keep the shard of what’s-is. I know. Workin’ on it. I just wanted to say ‘hi’ and thank all of you for following the RP XP with MJ. And, hey, do us all a favor. When you find him in-game, harass him in character. I love to watch him get all flustered. Haa!”
KENDRIS, The Jedi Knight
“Hello, readers of the RP XP with…. What does that even mean? I mean… What’s an XP? Is that a type of speeder? A disease? Why am I associated with a disease? *sigh* Well… May the Force be with your XPs, whatever they are.”
WEX, The Trooper
“Hoo-rah! It’s good to know ya. Glad you’re stickin’ with us. If you come across any tips or tricks on how to drive back the Imps, you got my address. I’d be plenty thankful. Until next friday, keep your recharge packs dry, your armor buffed, and your sights set on victory! For the Republic!”
TARIK, The Padawan
“Greetings, noble readers. Did, um… Did Yulel say anything about me? Oh,um… I’m thankful for the Jedi Code. It keeps me grounded. At least that’s what Master Kendris keeps telling me. …So… Did she?”
MISHA VU-DON, The Consular
“May the Force be with you all, may your days be filled with the light of knowledge and may you find your way in the darkest night.”
JENLA RUF, The Imperial Agent
“I don’t have time for you worms. I’m thankful that I’m a fictional character and don’t have to deal with your moronic presence. I– OUCH!”
BOARSCH, The Bounty Hunter
“I’m thankful that I’m standing next to a lovely Chiss Agent whose posterior always seems to be just a ‘pinch’ away. Oh… and I’m thankful for guns. Big guns. And fire.”
VEETHA, The Sith Apprentice
“I am thankful that my master has allowed me to live, and to learn from him. And I will be thankful when he allows me to unleash my full potential!”
DARTH TAGIOUS, The Sith Marauder
“Do not look at me.”
LORD SHUNDRAX, The Sith Inquisitor
“I have not yet appeared in the tale that unfolds with the beginning of each RP XP with MJ… but I assure you… It is YOU who shall be thankful when I do.”

((The RP XP with MJ)) appears right here on every Friday. MJ is swtor-life’s RP columnist and an editor for and (which, he says, is extremely cool. You should all check it out!)

You can contact him directly with questions, comments, RP invites or column ideas at You can follow him on Twitter @MJswtor.
See ya next week!

    I’ve been having issues getting into the past two beta tests…so I’m SOL on that regard. Still, Happy Holiday things to you as well.

    ….now to elaborate on Yulel’s request…will you be posting what server you’ll be playing on when it goes gold?

    “Kael, it’s Yulel. Thanks for the ‘happy holidays’ and stuff! MJ’s all tight-lipped and sneaky about who and what he’s gonna play in-game, but I’m sure he’ll spill it once it’s live.

    “In the meantime, in case you get in this weekend — or for anyone else who is in — I happen to know he’s stuck on Coruscant as a male Mirialan Jedi Sentinal named ‘Emjay.’ Ha! Cute, huh? Emjay? …What a nerfherder. Apparently, he’s having trouble with a ‘boss’ and is spending his time seeing how long it takes to ‘walk’ from one end of Coruscant to the other. Ha haaa haaaaa! Oops. Here he comes–”

    I got my problem sorted and am in utter love with this game. I promise not to be too much of a creepy stalker on MJ.

    …maybe. >.>

    Thanks again, Yulel!
