A Star Wars and Star Wars: the Old Republic Gaming Podcast


This week we introduce a new segment called Star Lores by Passionately Casual feature writer, Wil Wright (AKA Grognard). Wil discusses the lore and background behind Umbara, the new planet coming to SWTOR in release 5.4! Also featured in this episode is the next installment of Larry Everett’s In Character -this one is about God Moding- and an interview with the queen of Twitch moderation herself, Ladydaney! Finally, we try to get our heads around the porg-mania that has gripped Star Wars!

Star Lores

In Character


God-moding, the third of the evil trifecta of RP no-no’s (the other two are meta-gaming and power-gaming) involves making your character too powerful to fit comfortably into an RP context. Join Larry Everett as he provides examples and explains why god-moding is a problem.
