About CrewSkills

The Player

My name’s Eleanor, and I’m a thirtysomething gamer and all-around geek. I live in eastern Australia, I’ve been playing MMOs for eight years straight, and I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since the original trilogy hit the cinemas. Most recently I’ve been playing WoW; before that, my MMO drug of choice was EQ2, and before that SWG. Somehow I managed to miss the whole EQ phenomenon, along with AC, DAoC and the like — but I originally met MMOs through the grandaddy of them all, Ultima Online. Offline, I enjoy strategy and simulation games, with the occasional RPG; Civ III has had me firmly in its clutches for about half a decade now. And I’ve been playing tabletop/pen-and-paper RPGs since I was sixteen, although I actually don’t tend to RP in MMOs.

Before Crew Skills, I wrote a WoW blog at Banana Shoulders, focusing primarily on Holy Paladins, with a side focus on crafting guides and general WoW discussion. I really loved writing Banana Shoulders; the blogging community was great, and I found it very satisfying. Had I not tired of WoW, I’d probably still be writing it! As it stands, however, I’ve been very eager for SW:TOR for months now, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the community.

The Blog

Crew Skills is a SW:TOR blog about… anything that takes my fancy, with a focus on crafting and tradeskills. Herein you’re likely to find crafting guides, tradeskill advice, companion and crew posts, new features, wishlists, theorycrafting, and class discussion.
