TORWARS TV

Post by Fynn » Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:09 pm

I figured this was as good a place as any to place this, but if the powers that be deem fit to move it, please do so!

Anyone that follows SWTOR via Twitter has probably been exposed to @Asros. He is one of the co-hosts of the popular podcast TORWARS. They are one of the bigger TOR podcasts and get quite a few exclusives from the Dev and Communtiy teams over in Austin. (some believe the reason for the Darthhater switch had something to do with TORWARS and the increase in fan-cast exclusives)

So Asros has been tweeting for the past month that he is working on something new for the site. At some point in the last two weeks, he posted that anyone interested in helping should send him a Tweet. I have a twitter account for my fictional smuggler (Fynn), and post silly nonsense as if Fynn were real. It is all in fun. So I replied, completely in jest, that Fynn could help by flashing a couple of smiles for the ladies. Asros sent me a DM asking me to write up a script. I told him I was just kidding, I had the face for radio and the voice for silent pictures, but he said write and record something and we'll see what we've got. I did. Then the following happened

Geek-splosion

Check it out if you are so inclined. It isn't perfect, and there is room for improvement, but I think it has some potential and am excited about it...

It was pretty nuts that @Hallhood plugged it with reference to my segment, though. He is the lead writer for SWTOR and he wrote the script for the Smuggler arc. I was geeked!

There will never, NEVER be a celebrity as big as Jonnymaddog. Blaspheme like that again and I'll show you the business end of a blaster! :lightsaber:

Haha Thanks Skigg! Asros (Brian) did almost everything. All I did was write and record. He added the cantina sounds in the back, the visuals, everything!

Thanks Starel! Like I said, all I can take credit for is the idea. That's the easy part :P
But thank you!

Episode 1 is done, and though the reviews are mixed, they are mostly positive and the show had a good viewing! Asros asked me to do another "Smuggler's Run" and this time it will start to tell a story. I was wondering if there was any objection to using CoA 'characters'? If anyone has any problem with it at all, post here or send me a PM. Pass the word on! Is there anyone that has a serious interest in being included? That can be arranged...I know the writer :rave:

The plan is to tell a 'story' over several episodes, and my intention is to tell the start of Fynn's career as a Smuggler (or Courier, as is his preference). If CoA has no issue, I'd love to include the guild and individuals from said guild. Again, no worries if this is an issue. Just let me know!
