Passionately Casual Podcast Ep. 29: Huree Back, Jessie!
A SWTOR Podcast for Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake guilds on the Harbinger server. Our podcast is a proud member of MOG Nation!
With Jessie unavailable this episode but safe in Australia, it’s left to the boys to hold down the fort! We think we did a pretty good job. Our glorious episode graphic is testimony of the fact that we barely scraped by without Jessie!
This week we sit down with Xam Xam and get her impressions of the latest game updates. We also talk about her experience with SWTOR as it has changed directions over the last five years, what it means to stay with the game despite friends moving on, and then about the possibility of them returning now that ops are back. Larry also brings episode 3 of In Character!
February’s contest involves asking a companion or SWTOR NPC to be your valentine. Prizes are available for both the written and visual categories, so be sure to submit your entries by February 28th.
Sechari attended Bad Feeling’s Hung Jawa Junket and posted some pictures here.
And let us know what you think about SCORPIO! Is she chaotic evil, lawful evil, neutral evil, true neutral or something else? Mox posted the poll to Twitter and we had some fun with it before Alexander Freed straightened us out. Still, that didn’t stop Larry from geeking out and sharing some in-depth analysis. So who is winning the #skippyforSCORPIO war between Mox and Sechari? Probably Mox but Sechari won’t admit it!
Highlights in game news: 350% (I REPEAT, 350%!!) CXP until February 28th, and after that, 250% CXP until April 10th. Boosts are available from both the Cartel Market (100% CXP boost up to command rank 179 for 3 hours) and from the Token Vendor (100% CXP boost up to command rank 179 for 2 hours). The CXP weekly cap has also been elevated to account for all the CXP we’ll be raking in!
We also spend some time discussing odd changes to the minimap.
This week on In Character with Larry Everett, Larry discusses navigating the jargon of guild advertising on a roleplay server. Helpful as always to those looking to really dig into RP.
Be sure to listen in on our interview with Xam Xam! Not only does she sport an accent waaay cooler than Sechari’s, she’s super tactful too and avoids falling into Sechari’s trap trying to get another vote for chaotic neutral! Be sure also to check out Xam Xam’s blog at xamxamsays.com and her Twitter account @Rach_Games.
Be sure also to check out the other great SWTOR/Star Wars podcasts, blogs, and YouTube channels this month!

It’s also worth keeping an eye on the musings of Alexander Freed as he lends both his vision and his artful writing to help build the new Star Wars canon.
The Lisk shares something to think about in Substrate: Don’t Smirk.
Star Wars News
Jessie wanted to be sure we included this gem she found: The Star Wars Art of Terese Nielsen. And she’s not joking. It’s REALLY good! Here’s an example:
Oh and one more thing before we sign off: Episode 8, The Last Jedi, hits theaters in 310 days! That makes us more excited than Z0-OM meeting new droid fellows!
