"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
― Plato

Assumption: most of us are here because we're fans of Star Wars. The story and its characters sucks us in and here we find an escape from reality as we immerse ourselves into a rich and vivid virtual reality of the universe we've grown to love. 

But what good is that universe if it lacks one thing that gives it life, gives it meaning? Without its music, Star Wars wouldn't be the same. The music in the Star Wars films and games gives it life and soul. It engages our emotions.

In roleplay, it is no different. Though we may roleplay in silence most of the time (except for that not-so-awesome cantina music), imagine the difference it would make to hear the sounds of John Williams as you begin to incite your enemy, as you draw your weapon and start an all-out cantina brawl with countless Treeks flinging stones across the room. Though this might sound a little silly (but super fun), music enhances the feel of that scene tenfold. 

In today's Friday Focus, we'd like to know how imperative the music of Star Wars is to your gaming, your roleplaying and your storytelling, both solo and with friends. Does it change your mood? Does it affect the way you feel? I have no doubt it does, but pop your thoughts into the comments section below!

Regardless of the universe, symbols, pennants and personal banners have played a role in the introduction of an individual notoriety. It is through these banners and affiliated symbols that we come to associate emotion to a group or single person. Be it Darth Vader's iconic mask, a Sith or Jedi's lightsaber, or simply a notoriously strong starship, not even Star Wars is exempt from the idea of image representation.

So, then, how do we adapt this to the realm of Star Wars: The Old Republic? Will you, as a roleplayer, design and use your own banner and pennant in the quest for recognition? Or will you abstain in favour of a more subtle approach? A signet ring, perhaps? What advantages or disadvantages do you believe lie in the use and maintenance of a sigil or banner? Will you use one? 
Serithis I can't answer that entirely but I do know I will use one.
