Love you all.

This is hilarious.

Love looking at this nerd stuff we all invested in back in the day.

What a fun and strange time to be so wrapped up in silly writing for star wars fan fiction.

I just watched The Mandalorian final episode of season 2, and when Luke showed up... I can't believe I was in middle school when I found this place. Now I found myself nearing 30, with two kids and a steady job, and this place was my only fix of post ROTJ star wars that somehow I could be a part of.

What a crazy thing the internet is. I will remember this place fondly with my various accounts, silly OOC dramas, and good old fashion star wars fantasy fun.

If anyone sees this, know we all had a fun time playing star wars together. The writing was always secondary, the community of avid star wars nerds was the number 1 draw, and we all loved it.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... Then it's hilarious.

Truly it is. I remember joining Vast Empire over a decade ago when I was around 12-13 years old and just beginning to get into the world of roleplay. Found some old posts, my old wiki character profiles, and definitely cringed at how bad I was!

Thankfully I've managed to grow quite a bit since then, but still remember this place fondly.

Hey guys! A nostalgia trip indeed!

I remember my friend introduced me to VE in middle school and now (I can't believe) I'm approaching my 30s as well. I had a lot of fun roleplaying here and this site lives rent-free in a cozy place in my brain.

I never really lost my passion for writing though, and after quitting Facebook earlier this year, I finally started my own blog.

I actually just wrote an article going down memory lane about a space pirate game in the early 2000's I want to re-create and I just so happened to check back in here to see how things were going.

You can check out my blog post here.

Anyway, I hope to see some more old faces trickle in because I would love to get a story going again.

Cheers!

I randomly thought of this today and decided to see if the website was still up. Such great memories and friendships were had here!

It really is a trip. I joined for the first time maybe in April 2001 or 2002 and got booted out a few months later for the first time. It's funny going back and reading some of the things that 12-14 year old me wrote 20 years ago.

Also crazy seeing some people's profiles who haven't been active in 10-15+ years and I associate with VE, and people I've never seen that are nostalgic about it.

It's nice that Kadann keeps this up, all the other groups I took part in or associated with (FES, SV, GE, the venerable TRIC - ha - etc) have mostly gone away...

It is great to come back occasionally and take a read through some of the stuff that we wrote in years past, some were great, some were not so great. It truly was an enjoyable time. Gunnay you are not the only one who got essentially booted out in their younger days.

Yall know I been here the whole time, still waiting for the next Chapter?

Still fuggin with the stock market, just saying, top 10 forever baybay.

Anybody out there wanna relight this thing and get some writing going, I will always be for it.

Good luck and God Speed to all of you out there.


This definietly feeds my Nostalgia monster, and keeps him satisfied.

I still shamelessly play X-Wing Alliance, and dream of the days as 10 year old me having the time of my life.

Thank you, all of you, especially Kadann, Fury, and others, for keeping this website up and operational. Its nice to see there's still some blood trickling through the old veins.

As many years as its been...hilarious i remembered my old password.

But i cant even find my car keys.

I'm low key hoping we get enough people interested to pick things up again, too. I actually made a Navy account also, but I can't remember the name of it, or what squad I was in. I joined to play with Sicario, actually.

Anyway, I stumbled upon Star Wars Combine, which scratches a nostalgia itch for me for a different type of game I used to play, but it's also very RP heavy so I'm interested to get into that as well.

Thought I'd share: https://www.swcombine.com/community/features.php

I used to login pretty regularly but obviously not much to see of late.

I *do* actually add the oddball thing to the store once in a blue moon as the spirit strikes. You know, since you are earning credits and don't have much to do with them.

May even take a gander at the wiki just to clean up some of the crap I never found time to do.

The Discord *was* active-ish until a few months ago.

Jeez, confessional portion.

I was just married, burned out and stuck in a boring job in an office in Oklahoma after running wild in and out of Vegas for a spell and in dire need of a hobby. So I found this place - no, I did NOT come in at the open. That's more a Kad story....

We had some fun. Got to meet a fair amount of ya and still wouldn't mind meeting a few more if the stars align.

Thanks for giving the place a chance.

Believe it or not, I come back and see what is up from time to time. I remember when I got my brother to join and we got to do some joint squad stories together for a few of the Campaigns. : ) Always had a good time and met some really cool people through this site!

After waking up from coma this is one of the first thing I looked at. The search engine gave me a hard time but I was glad I still have the email address stiil active. What happened to this site? I wish that there is some kind of a miracle that this will all come back. God luck everyone.

At this point, I'm hoping to send my kid and his heathen pals over here to reinvent the place if it is still in place and not in use in a couple years.

holy crap I miss this place. I was 16 I think when I first found this place. Now I'm 31, haha. I always want to add more stories here, maybe I will someday, if only just for me. Miss all my old comrades.

Making 48,000 Credits a day on Interest alone has me definitely eyeballing some fun stuff in the store, even all these years later. Hard to think I started this in 2008 on my Navy account and it's actually been 14 years since then. Lots of great memories and cringe inducing writing to go back through.

So very many cringe inducing posts indeed. I like to look through here every once in a while. I'll be looking more now that I no longer work for the Mouse and can technically write for fun again.

Not the worst idea in the world actually.

I've been toying with creating a backstory. The planets are still there, but we aren't in charge. Obviously everyone is either out of a gig or doing much, much smaller scale versions of what we used to do.

It would allow folks to make some small teams stories for old time's sake.

Run rampant. Create a little chaos.

There are a lot of vehicles and ships I would love to bring in. Lots of work being done by some talented fans.

So, yeah, maybe would be nice to dust off the wiki, make some updates, see who still wants to play in the sandbox. Also, I add an item to the store every other month or so. So burn those credits we are all still earning, eh?

Still a few folks lurking on the Discord from time to time.
