One of my favorite articles to write is about the addition to the staff here at Swtor-Life. Today I have the pleasure of bringing you our latest columnist Rosie! Rosie has an interesting take on the MMO gaming world and will bring a female perspective to the crew here.
She has come up with a creative idea for a weekly column that takes topics from the community and allows her to write off the cuff about the issues you the community find interesting.
Be sure to submit her your ideas for a swtor related article by using the contact us link with the subject of “Rosie article idea” and you might just get an article written on a topic you requested!
Now lets hear a bit from Rosie about herself,
Hi my name is Rosie. I am an alt-aholic, a compulsive crafter and quester, and a novice PvPer, and I am addicted to MMORPGs. (But we already talked about that, and I can quit if I want, really, honest.)
I have been called that for a few years as almost all of my game characters have the word rose in them. I happen to love roses and while I lived on the east coast I had them in my garden.
I was born in Vermont, moved to Maine and lived there for 13 years or so. I moved at the beginning of this year to California, for the sun, fun, and warmth. After 40 years of ice and snow most of they year, I needed a change.
I have a degree in computer programming and computer information systems. (Not that it got me anywhere) I had the luck of having a father that worked for IBM back in the day. When I was old enough to be considered house broken, so to speak, Dad would bring me to work with him about once a month. There I learned about programming, and the joys of mainframes. And I would sit for hours in his office on his terminal and play “Adventure”.
I have been a GM for more than one MUD, and played an even larger number of them. WOW was my first introduction to the graphical MMO. I have been hooked on these games ever since.
I have had a number of jobs over the last 20 years. My favorites were working as a consultant to Bath Iron Works, serving coffee at Tim Horton’s, and working as a Broadband Technical Support Reprehensive for Time Warner Cable. I have moved in the last few years to preferring customer service over computers. I like the human interaction. Of course that could be because I tend to be a bit of a hermit at home.
I learned to PvP in WOW and HATED it, and then I played a few other games. Some I felt completely used up and destroyed, others I got a sense that this could be fun in the right setting. I have never been very good at PvP, I am a true healer at heart, but I will continue to try.
I have never been in a MMO and not been in a guild. I will tell myself that I won’t join a guild, but I almost always do. For SWTOR I have joined a guild even before launch. This will be the first time I have actually been involved with a game prior to launch, instead of a week into the launch.
I am excited to be able to bring my thoughts, opinions, research and over all joy of SW and the MMO world. And I thank you all for being as welcoming and accepting as you have been. For an “old bat” I am feeling a bit like the new kid at high school. J
