Star Wars Epics

Star Wars Epics (also known as Epics) is primarily a play by post roleplaying site, with forums dedicated to Star Wars discussion as well as media, culture, entertainment, and current events. Set 13 years after the Battle of Endor, the site is currently setting the bar as an independently owned and operated, unofficial, not-for-profit, roleplaying-centered Star Wars website, with an entirely flame-free fan community. The use of the word Epics is no attempt to exaggerate the quality of the site; rather it is an attempt to show an aspect of the site's roleplaying which is unique to the genre: each member, from the original founders circa 1999, and everyone that has joined since, can trace their original characters from their first "introductory post" through one continuing massive story, up to today.

Why should you join Epics?

Longevity: Star Wars Epics has been in existence as a roleplaying group in various forms since 1999 and has grown steadily, despite jumping formats several times.

Originality: Star Wars Epics has been copied more than once, in both design and content, by more boards than we can count. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, in our opinion -- but we still try to stay one step ahead.

Management: Our admins read every post made on the board every day, respond to every PM, and are accessible on various IM devices, and every question posted by anyone is answered in 24 hours or less -- usually our replies are within minutes. Oh, and we actually roleplay in the stories ourselves too!

Activity: Star Wars Epics doesn't pad our number of daily posts with spam threads, or spamming in hidden forums, bumping old topics, misrepresenting our member count, or hacking our "members online" list to show fake visitors. What you see is what you get, and we feel that honesty is the best policy.

Community: Star Wars Epics is entirely composed of mature, intelligent people of all ages (17-40+), all of whom get along with each other and with the staff. Our board is drama-free, and we have had to hide threads or edit posts for content only a handful of times, in the entirety of our online existence (11 years).

Talent: Admins from other Star Wars roleplaying sites have have approached our site to write when they want quality roleplaying. (Of course they usually back out when they see us, but what can we do?)

But don't take our word for it. Here's a sample of our roleplays (chosen at random from our recent threads):

Treason: A Rogue Squadron Tale - some of the New Republic's finest find themselves framed for treason and murder.
The Tatooine Redemption - the Empire conquered Tatooine and their TIE pilots have to handle it.
Epics Infinities - what might have happened had the Empire won at Endor?
Snapshots at Carida- how some of the Imperial officers became what they are.

And here's a collection of unsolicited praise we've received: Praise for Epics

Geek vs. Feminism
I want to believe in feminism again. I do. I joined this list and started trying to reclaim the label because my husband is going to be assuming a traditionally female line of work. I also saw the Bush administration gag abortion access right and left - and I watched the twit become more and more popular. Still I find myself reluctant to step right in with both feet again, and it seems that when I write or comment on feminist topics, I tick someone off and I even stop to question my own motives.

So, I figure if I stop lurking and start posting, it's time to come clean to the body public so maybe a little insight can be gained on both sides.

When I became too geek to be a 'good feminist.'Collapse )

Hello, my name is becki and I'm a geek.
I'm a big, book reading, movie watching, theatre going geek. I read mostly sci-fi and fantasy, but I'll read anything that passes in front of me. I like independent, foreign and artsy type movies as well as the more mainstream stuff. I've worked at the Minnesota Renassaince Festival and volunteered with our local fringe festival for the free passes.

Am I geeky enough to be here? ;)

greetings! i recently joined livejournal and i'd love to jump right in to several communities of my interests. I'm a 22 year-old male college student interested in a variety of practices (see profile). I'm fascinated with bondage & bdsm, and I'll include a few of my favorite sites below to share with you all. I'm going to post this in all the communities I've joined and hope for some responses, so if you get this same message from different communities we may be mutual members of, let me apologize in advance. feel free to leave comments in my journal and let me know what you're interested in!
