HoloNet Links #48
Drew Karpyshyn second novel from the SWTOR Universe has been revealed and set for release November 2012. The book’s title is, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Annihilation. The announcement was covered on a community news blog on the SWTOR official site. The cover art was also revealed for the novel.
More details on Drew’s novel & Dulfy’s new Speeder link after the Jump…
Before I go on, I want to warn everyone that there are spoilers in the following link to the official announcement. I will try to give some details without spoilers below and with that on with the summary.
The book will be loosely based on events past Act 3 in the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO. The primary character is Theron Shan. He is a descendant from Revan’s bloodline, but not a Force user. He is a “secret agent” working for the Republic Strategic Information Services. I find having a non-Force user a great idea for a book in the SWTOR Universe. Although I have not read the book yet, I find myself picturing a character with attributes of Han Solo, fast thinking, handling a blaster and not shying away from a fight, but also maybe some of Leia’s ability to be a diplomat, sometimes placing his duty to the Republic above anything else. Now whether or not that is who Theron turns out to be like, we will have to wait till November later this year to find out.
What are your impressions of the new book idea from Drew Karpyshyn? If you could come up with a character to write a Star Wars novel about what kind of character would you create? Let us know in the comment section below. I wonder how many different types of characters we can come up with 🙂

- Amber Green clarifies some confusion in the Patch 1.2.5 notes
Hello everyone! This change was made to PvP mission rewards, and the following was added to the 1.2.5 Patch Notes:
- Level 50 PvP missions now grant 100 Warzone Commendations for daily missions and 300 Warzone Commendations for weekly missions.
We apologize for any confusion.
The new change to the PVP rewards was left off the original patch notes and now has been added, as Amber explains above. Be sure to read through all the patch notes and if something isn’t working as the note says create a ticket to notify them of the issue.
- SWTOR Music video
Since the topic of the new looking for group tool seems to be the hot topic, let’s look at a song by Richie Branson and video by Hastings from swtorextreme. The song is entitled “LFG (Looking For a Group). Check it out and here is hoping we all get this tool in-game soon and cure these issues of grouping.
