In our continuing quest to have all the people we met at PAX East on the show, we invited Eric Musco from TOROcast to join us as we talk about TOROcast’s beginnings, account security, and PvP. We also find out that Eric is a weird mix of good manners and touchiness in this week’s Sith or Jedi Test.
Fact or Fiction: Can you pick out the confirmed fact from the tall tales? This week’s host challenge involves the UK gameplay event, Younglings, and Imperial Agent abilities.
