=== Squadron Activity ===

Still no new special activities. If anyone has ideas, be sure to let me know!


Otherwise, there are the usual batch of activities.

Simming -

Flight sims and EaW - No EaW mission has been posted yet, though.

Historical missions - You can always play old missions from the various platforms and report the results. Up to four of them qualify for activity points per session. Listing here: and reporting here:

Multiplayer - Play matches of any game you can provide a screenshot of the results for, but at least two members of the RS must participate in the match to qualify.

Fiction - Rules are in the section below.

= Fiction Writing =

This is a permanent activity for whenever you feel the inkling to write. The only limitation is that it must be Star Wars-related.

- Write about whatever your RS character might be up to: recent activities, a specific event in the character's life, playing a practical joke on another member, etc. If you're into simming with the ABG you can alternately pick any of the characters you've created for that. Yes, even dead ones.
- Exploring beyond the Outer Rim.
- A massive fleet engagement.
- A smuggling run.
- Pirates hijacking a ship.
- A game of Sabacc (or any other SW game).
- Surviving a ship crash.
- Anything else that might inspire you!

The fiction must be at least 300 words, but can otherwise be as long as you want. You'll receive a point for each piece of fiction you write. These rules are subject to change if the official fiction rules are ever sorted out.

You can post your fiction in this forum thread:

=== Closing ===

That's all for now. Go for the Gold!
