    Default 1001 ways to know that you've played SWRPGnetwork for too long

    This is something silly and fun. See what you can come up with.

    1: When someone calls you by your real name, you are confused and unsure as to who they are referring.

    2: When someone asks you to fight, you respond with 'I don't have my character sheets.'

    3: When you trip and fall, you stand and say sheepishly 'I rolled a 1 on my balance check'.

    4: You make check after check to call your toy lightsaber to your hand, saying each time 'I'll take 10.'

    5. You're rubbing your feet on carpet just to initiate the Force Lightning from your fingertips.

    6. You constantly quote Han Solo "Never tell me the odds!" in statistics as a Free Action.

    7. You're asking for GM and a Sense Motive check if you want to know if a girl seems to be interested in you.

    8. You add the game stats of cutlery to the name. F.e.: "May I get a 1d4 Knife please?"

    9. You think your grandmother'S best silver is Mastercraft +3.

    10. You Run a Pair of Games with 20 Players between them.

    11. You've worked on a Fan Sourcebook such as the ROTEI:SB.

    12. Your mother refers to you by your holonet name to get your attention.

    13. When newbies know who you are.

    14. When you realize that star destroyers are not t3h pwnzor!

    15. Vader No Longer scares you when you realize you have a Level 20 Jedi that could wipe the floor with his 'Chosen' butt.

    16. When someone asks you a question you prefer to roll a Knowledge Check.

    Want Conversions of your favorite Sci-Fi ships into SWRPG? PM me, the offer is open.

    Oh man! I sh*t thee not, about a week or so back, I was down on campus, and someone near me said something about something being cold, and i instantly turned around, thinking they were talking to me, only realizing later how odd it was.

    37. Your nights are spent playing "Spot that Skill" with the Clone Wars DVDs. "Dude, that's definitely Anakin using Pilot in his starfighter!"
    "No it's not."
    "Wha..?"
    "You don't know? He's actually moving the ship around with just his mind...It's a Jedi thing he can do in his sleep."

    40. you consider the Holonet forums a second home..

    41. Checking new posts in said forums is your equivalent of the morning news (guilty of this one)


    42. Your favored swear words are Frak and fierfek.

    43. You think up ideas for your characters to try in the online games in Roleplaying while you're offline at work. (done this one myself )

    44. You spend 3+ years and up to $3K+ building a fully customized costume based on one of your RPG characters and join the real world 501st Legion using that character & costume as your alter ego for the events you participate in. (I'm guilty of this too. )

    45. You goto Expedia's travel planning site, and disapointed none of your favorite vacational resorts or destinations are listed - Corellia, Alderaan, Naboo, Calamar, ... well, you get the picture...

    46. When traveling, you think in distances of Parsecs rather than miles or kilometers.

    47. Beverages like Rum & coke just sound too borring, instead, you ask for Corellian Whiskey, or a Caridan Rum on the rocks, then wonder why the waitress looks at you funny.

    48. Likewise, you think of meats and food dishes acording to the apropiate animal. Nerf, Bantha, Dewback.

    49a. Your you refer to your laptop as your Datapad,

    49b. your PDA / palm pilot as your mini Datapad,

    49c. your cell phone is your Comlink.

    49d. And usb memory sticks & media flash cards are actually Datacards.

    50. You start referring to sheets of paper as flimsi.

    51. It's not a stove, microwave, or toaster oven, it's an autochef.

    52a. You don't refer to it as the bathroom or restroom, but use the naval term 'head' instead.

    52b. It's not the kitchen, it's the galley.

    52c. You call the shower the refresher.
