A typical TOR gaming session?  Well, that rather depends on if I'm playing by myself or with friends.

If I'm playing by myself, I'll log on whoever I'm in the mood to play and probably play for a couple of hours, at least taking care of a grouped batch of missions.  I might muck around with crafting for a little, too, or at least try to remember to log everyone on to send crewmembers off to get stuff before I sign off.  Sometimes, I run through several characters, doing batches of missions here and there.  (This is one reason why I try not to have characters in the exact same place on the same side.)
Of course, if I'm playing one of the characters I'm meant to be keeping journals of, I'll take some notes from their point of view.  (And I have got to get that short story finished.  As well as work out how I'm organizing game verse/fic verse stuff.  Well, okay, I know how I plan to do that, I just need to note it somewhere.  Unless I already did and forgot. But I digress.)

If I'm playing with friends, I usually spend some time crafting/sending crewmembers off while we work out what we're going to do (play one of our teams, and, if so, which one, or run flashpoints to get someone gear).  Then we do whatever it is we've decided to do for the evening.

I should add that in any event, I nom your typical gaming munchies (and sometimes veggies as well) and often have to play around a cat, who figures if a human is sitting, it must be to give him a lap.

For me it largely depends on the guild I'm in. For the last few months, I was in a semi-serious raiding guild and spent 2-4 nights a week working on the endgame raid bosses. And then at the end of March the guild leadership all quit over some drama explosion that was never really explained to those of us not involved in it, so now I'm in a light-RP guild that plans to also raid but at a less serious level.

Anyway, when I'm not raiding, I'm generally either doing daily quests for crafting currency or faction reputation (Rift is big on those), running the continuous adventures that are pretty much the fastest way to gain XP for Rift's Alternate Advancement system, or messing around on an alt. When my more casual-minded friends used to play, we'd sometimes get together for dungeons and group quests.

Back in Aion and Warhammer, I used to spend lots of time on the organized open-world PVP where we'd fight for control of forts and things. Aion was much more regimented, since you could only conquer forts during certain evening hours, and even then only some forts would be vulnerable - Warhammer let you conquer keeps anytime you could muster the necessary force, but only the ones in whichever zones were considered "contested" at the time. Rift doesn't really have anything like that yet - they had objectives you could take over for your own side, but said objectives offered such paltry rewards that nobody much cared about them, and they were eventually taken out.

I also have a cat who sits on my lap while I game. He particularly likes to show up during raids and bat at my headset mic.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a sitting human in possession of a good lap must be in want of a cat.
