Player Association Spotlight – Holowood Galactic Studios of Starsider - 01/13/2009

What is the name of your player association, and which galaxy do you play on?

Holowood Galactic Studios <HGS> on Starsider.

How many members are in your guild roster?

60-70.

When and how did your player association get started?

Holowood Galactic Studios was born on Sunday night, March 5, 2006 - thesame night as the 78th Annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre inHollywood, California. There were only two people in the guild at thetime: Nallu and Marlon (plus their alts).

Its in-characterreason for existing is that it's an entertainment "Studio". The guild'sstoryline and inspiration came from the 2005 King Kong movie directedby Peter Jackson. Nallu and Marlon role played a company that traveledto exotic places to film the best movie scenes. Nallu was a holoactressand Marlon was her Manager whom everyone called "Big Boss Mar" or "BBM".

On July 20, 2008 HGS transferred to Starsider. HGS' humble roots beganout of the Lucky Despot on Tatooine, where in-character interviewswhere conducted. It wasn't long after the transfer to Starsider thatthe Studio settled on Corellia.

Is your guild based out of a player city? If so, which one, and how did the city get started?

HGS is based in the role-playing city of Riva Dorata,Corellia. The city is led by Mayor Aonin Halephax and Council MembersCrescendo, Arilyth Nilim, and Lady Dionne Vao (Aphrodite).

RivaDorata's high end theme is supported by its amenities. The high end RPatmosphere was created by city planner and interior decorator, Deson.Mayor Aonin and Crescendo are currently involved with HGS events thatare planned in the city from placing storyteller props to eventattendance.

Is your guild partial to one faction over another? Why did you choose that faction (or remain neutral)?

The Studio does its best to remain out of the Galactic Civil War.Allegiance to a particular faction is bad for business and cuts offwork opportunities. However, there are individual Imperial loyalistsand Rebel sympathizers secretly embedded within the Studio. Under theguise of an employee within an entertainment studio, some members servethe Alliance undercover or serve the Empire vigilantly. Some membersuse celebrity staged rivalry, petty holonet tabloids, or simply playdumb to distract the Imperial authorities and or Rebel intelligencefrom their true motives. 

How is your guild leadership organized (i.e. single guild leader, council, etc.)?

The current leader of HGS is Nallu Koras, who serves as President.Subordinate to her are the HGS Officers who are delegated with theirown responsibilities.

What sets your guild apart and makes it attractive to current and prospective members?

Our culture is fun, innovation, and role-play. Think of all thelaughter, joy, creativity, role-play and thrills that have come fromthis one place, HGS. Premieres, performances, weddings, parties,holiday celebrations, collaborations with other organizations andindividuals, events, cross-server events and more.

Ideas areencouraged, innovation is applauded, and excellence rewarded. HGSwelcomes highly motivated individuals with strong communication skillsand a passion for the game. We are always scouting for talented andcreative people.

What professions are most popular with your guild? 

Entertainer is the most popular profession. However, we accept allprofessions. You can role-play anything from a galactic celebrity,bodyguard, Mandalorian, physician, pilot, attorney, beast trainer /veterinarian, caterer, fashion designer, publicist, producer,bartender, Hapan Princess, or RICH Sullustan businessman. You can RPanything that your imagination can lend itself to as well as create anIC profession that will be an excellent reason for the Studio to offeryou a contract.

Does your guild put together events (i.e. raids, parties, storyteller events, etc.)?

HGS is involved with hosting events, particularly holiday events in conjunction with real-world holiday. However, there is a Star Wars twist with our events that follows Star Wars Galaxies canon and EU. 

HGS members lead their own projects, such as venues (tents) at the famous Nomad Market hosted by Azhra and Selenite on Starsider and other RP businesses; Planet Holowood (by Ronin), Holowood Pets (by Ny'kita), Holowood Vids (by Amul'ette), and Phridrix of Holowood (by Malcar and Ivaadi).

The guild participates in photoshoots that are used for publicity, web site banners, and annual HGS Calendars.

Members are also involved with weekly PvE groups, beast mastery, and crafting.

Does your guild have a web site?
