Image EnlargerLast week TORWars had a great interview with SWTOR Lead Writer Hall Hood via their podcast. There are some amazing details in this hour-long interview and they cover topics like:

~ Character development that keeps players interested
~ Why some classes are clearly Republic, and some are Sith, and some walk a very gray line
~ Drawing inspiration from Episodes 4, 5, and 6 (and not so much from 1,2, and 3!)
~ Why humor is important to Star Wars
~ Writing characters and NPCs that people care about
~ Why the Sith aren’t completely evil
~ How does one write for players who like to be smartasses?
~ Where do the stories go, now that players have leveled to 50?
~ Why plot twists are essential to the Star Wars universe
~ Can great villains (or heroes) truly die, or can they re-appear?

Give it a listen and check it out for yourself. It’s definitely worth it and when you’re done, let us know what you think. What do you think of the future of SWTOR?
