This week on Corellian Run Radio, Jason, Mox, and I talk about our experiences playing SWTOR Knights of the Fallen Empire Chapters 10 and 11, and I talk about what it’s like becoming a Preferred (non-subscription) player. We also meet Knite and Sin from the Have a Nice Day, a primarily PvP guild that is working on releasing their own SWTOR podcast called Have a Nice Daycast!

Hello everyone! I know it’s been a little bit since I posted on the blog! I’ve recorded a few episodes of Corellian Run Radio, and the latest one is out today on iTunes or your favorite podcast app. However, I’ve included the video here for you. (more…)
Hello everyone! I know I’m a few days late reporting this, but my co-host Jason and I recorded episode 149 of Corellian Run Radio on Sunday featuring YouTube gamer and BioWare fan Lady Insanity! We interview her about what she does in the gaming industry and her thoughts of information she has obtained about the upcoming SWTOR Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion.
Additionally, I give a few tips on trying out operations in-game, especially for players that have been playing alone and would like to try out some additional end-game group content!
You can download the episode on iTunes or your favorite podcast app, or you can also watch the YouTube video of the live recording we did on Sunday, which I embedded here on the post.
Tomorrow night, my podcast Corellian Run Radio will be participating in an in-game event with Radio Free on the Ebon Hawk server! I wrote about the party I attended with them a few weeks ago, if you’d like to read a little bit about what they are all about. We will be recording interviews with the different DJs, which will also be broadcasted live over their station on radio-free.org.
The party starts tomorrow, Saturday, June 27th at around 5:00pm Pacific on the Lower Promenade of Nar Shadaa in front of the Gold Hutt statue! My character name on Ebon Hawk is Heather’pls, so hopefully I will see you there!
A couple Saturdays ago, my podcast Corellian Run Radio, was invited to a party by Radio Free, an RP guild on the Ebon Hawk server that throws awesome parties daily!
Roleplay (RP) is not usually something I do in-game. Usually I just log in for raid night with my guild and/or do a flashpoint and some dailies. However, I was very interested in seeing what role players do in-game.
I didn’t have any characters on the Ebon Hawk server, so I leveled up another Sith Assassin! I enjoy doing side quests, but my boyfriend (who also plays SWTOR) laughed at me for doing everything while 12x XP was active! I was level 12 before even picking up my first companion, who you should get much earlier than that in the Inquisitor storyline! Eventually, I was able to make it to Nar Shadaa!
The party was held on the lower promenade in Nar Shadaa next to the “Cheese Hutt.” There were plenty of people there! I immediately realized that I needed to dismiss Khem Val (no one else had their companions out), and also switch my character to “RP walk” (no one was running around like my character, even with Sprint turned off).
I found the people that invited Corellian Run Radio to the event and also logged into their Mumble channel. Radio Free has DJs that play music and emcees like a real life party, and they play this on their website. It was really cool seeing that the DJ was up on the stage in-game with dancers! There was a dance circle and lots of people emoting and talking to each other.
I found a drink droid and emoted my character to drink next to it! Additionally, a character was walking by with a Nekarr cat, so I RP-walked my way toward her and “hugged” the cat. I realize now that I might have been intrusive, and should’ve asked if my character could hug her cat before doing so.
Back on the dance floor, I didn’t have any dance emotes aside from the ones that are automatically given to you! I didn’t know there were so many, but my main character on the Harbinger at least has “Bop” also, which I like.
I met up with a friend, Jessie from the Unholy Alliance guild on my home server! She seemed to be a better RPer than me! She took some pictures and even filmed a video of us there, which I’ve embedded here on this post.
Surprisingly to me, I spent almost 2 hours hanging out at the RP party. I think I did have some awkward moments, like accidentally making my character dance with other characters (I think I’m supposed to ask permission before doing that) as I could be interrupting something they were currently doing.
It was definitely a different experience, but I’m so glad we were invited! I highly recommend attending one of their parties if you’d like to try RPing (they have an event calendar on their website), because they had a large turnout with plenty of people to help you if you need it.
I know, I am REALLY behind in posting this! However, I’m hoping you also follow my podcast, Corellian Run Radio! On Tuesday, my co-host Jason and I released a new episode featuring Larry Everett, who writes Hyperspace Beacon and does a lot for Massively Overpowered regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic. We also go over a bit of news, and I talk about my first RP party experience!

Hello everyone! Episode 145 of my podcast Corellian Run Radio is out! In this episode, Jason and I talk briefly about some SWTOR news, and then we interview the new Assistant Community Coordinator at BioWare Austin, Nick Avola!
This is the first interview he’s done on any SWTOR podcasts, so if you’d like to get to know him a little better and hear why you haven’t seen him much on the forums, you should definitely listen!
I embedded the video here on this post, but you can also download the episode on iTunes or your preferred podcast app!
Hello! This past Sunday I recorded Corellian Run Radio with my cohost Jason, and we interviewed SWTOR Community Production Coordinator Tait Watson. We asked a few questions to get to know him as a person and also about his job! We specifically asked about the best way to report bugs and the process in which developers put them on their priority list. You can download this episode on iTunes or your favorite podcast app, but here is the video of the episode as well! Click here to read the full show notes on the Corellian Run Radio website.
