A Star Wars and Star Wars: the Old Republic Gaming Podcast
This week we introduce a new segment called Star Lores by Passionately Casual feature writer, Wil Wright (AKA Grognard). Wil discusses the lore and background behind Umbara, the new planet coming to SWTOR in release 5.4! Also featured in this episode is the next installment of Larry Everett’s In Character -this one is about God Moding- and an interview with the queen of Twitch moderation herself, Ladydaney! Finally, we try to get our heads around the porg-mania that has gripped Star Wars!
Listen to the episode for an announcement by Alise regarding an all-guild meeting open to all Unholy Alliance/Wookiee Mistake members on August 22nd at 10:00 PM Eastern / 7:00 PM Pacific.
The Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event ends on August 22 with the release of update 5.4. Also coming with the update is the Crisis on Umbara flashpoint, the next set of class changes, increases in unassembled components for PVP weeklies (and a reduction for dailies), and the new Umbara stronghold!
Check out the SWTOR official preview!
Introducing the very first issue of Star Lores! Join @MandoLegion, loremaster and keeper of holocrons for the Jedi Temple as he divulges what we know about the dark and mysterious planet Umbara.
Be sure to see Vulkk’s coverage of the Crisis on Umbara for further information here.
God-moding, the third of the evil trifecta of RP no-no’s (the other two are meta-gaming and power-gaming) involves making your character too powerful to fit comfortably into an RP context. Join Larry Everett as he provides examples and explains why god-moding is a problem.
