Greetings my fellow gamers and Star Wars fans.  Welcome to another week of Force Lore!  While we celebrate the coming of Game Update 1.2, getting closer to release each and every day, we have to take a moment of silence for the departure of a dear friend to the Star Wars community, Ralph MacQuarrie.  The man that was responsible for designing Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and so many of the sets that brought the original trilogy to life will be missed.  Ralph was responsible for conceptual artwork on Battlestar Galactica and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial also.  Ralph passed on to become one with the Force on March 3, 2012, at the age of 82.  “May you live long and prosper, may you always find shade, and may the Force be with you, always.”  The Science Fiction world will miss you, Ralph.  Thank you for the lives you touched through your work.

The week is dedicated to Mr. MacQuarrie.  Without him, our beloved Star Wars Universe would look quite different.  While some of his conceptual work was changed to fit into the original trilogy, a lot of Ralph’s work would make it’s way into the Expanded Universe of Star Wars.  In Star Wars: The Old Republic, some of those conceptual designs can be seen, from the Sith Imperial Trooper design to the architecture of the Hutts.  Ralph’s vision of the space environments of Star Wars can be seen influencing the opening Flashpoint for the Republic, The Esseles.  So, strap in to your acceleration couch and let’s jump to this destination!

SWTOR testing anyone?

Bioware makes a couple of announcements about needing experienced players and guilds for testing of new 1.2 patch content. First we have the post by Joveth Gonzalez asking for experienced guilds to help with the testing. This is a huge announcement which in my opinion demonstrates Bioware is listening to the community and hearing guilds that want to be a part of testing the higher level content before it goes live.

Highlighted Guild

  • Republic Mercy Corps and Imperial Mercenary Corps

There are some amazing guilds in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I love the backstory most of these guilds create. This week is no exception. This guild, which is actually two guilds, has a very unique backstory that gives both factions the same roots. Before we go any further, let’s meet the guild leader of the Republic and Imperial sides. First off we have, Mark, who leads the RMC, and next Ryan, who presides over the sinister counterpart, the IMC. While they both collaborate on all overarching guilds decisions, they have found that by having each of them overseeing one faction each helps keep things less chaotic.

More on the start of RMC & IMC, and their backstory after the Jump… Continue reading »
