Passionately Casual Episode 7: Darin De Paul

Three  Important announcements

1/ Bifactional Mixer/Harbinger server party: Throughout the year the guilds hold a few mixers for members of both guilds to get to know each other, duel, dance and give stuff away. Our next event is on Saturday, October 17 at 4pm PST and we would like to extend the invitation to the whole community.

 

This event will be held at what is probably the best decorated stronghold in the game, the Unholy Alliance Beach House. It’s owned and personally decorated by Salluk DeVega and he has generously offered to host us for an evening of social activities and prizes. Since it’s almost Halloween there will also be a character costume contest. For details, see the guild website. RSVPs will be entered into an additional drawing, so sign up to come!

 

2/ The Extra Life charity gaming event is coming up fast. We really want you on our team. This is a day to commit to playing for kids. We all love playing SWTOR, right? So why not turn your playtime into hope and help for hospitalized children in your area? Extra Life is part of the Children’s Miracle Network which is a very well-respected charity. Go to UnholyAlliance.org to find out more about how Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake are getting involved for our third year with this exciting project and how you can be a part of it!  Here is a link to our team page: Unholy Alliance/Wookiee Mistake Team

 

3/ The Passionately Casual Fallen Empire Kneel or Defy Contest is in full swing! We have a lot of participation but it isn’t as much fun without YOU! Be sure to watch the 90 second video and tweet your answer soon to win a 2-month subscription, cartel coins, pet codes and Zakuul swag. Your Emperor awaits your answer.

Community Highlights

This week we bring the community the voice of Emperor Valkorion! Actor Darin De Paul is known for his work in film, TV, on stage and in the video game genre. Darin credits his early love of acting to Peter Sellers (hence the Pink Panther lead-in music this week!) His work in the Sacrifice trailer has already caused a huge buzz and we are still a few weeks from the game expansion launch in which he plays a starring role. We know you will love his personable interview and behind the scenes look into the life of a voice actor. Ice Age creature voices included!

 

Community Shoutouts:

Be sure to check out the other great SWTOR and Star Wars Podcasts out there this month!

 

The Boomy Show Ep 35 talks about a question near and dear to my heart which is do we as podcasters have a right to protect ourselves from spoilers while still effectively reporting on game news? I am spoiler-phobic to the extreme but luckily I have a cohost and a producer to help me stay spoiler safe while still publishing a quality show. Take a listen!

 

OotiniCast #226 Gives their impressions of the recent dev livestream and Chill also mentioned he was going to NYCC. He wants your questions for the Community Cantina. If you have any questions you’d like him to ask, please email him directly via chill@ootinicast.com or tweet to @BrandonLStarr
