Ladies and gentlebeings! Episode 8 of The Council, entitled New SWTOR vs Get Off My Lawn SWTOR – Part II is now out. You can find it here.
Don’t forget to turn in your week 2 fan fiction pieces to me by Monday! Here’s the week 2 playback video of KotFE chapters 3 and 4.
Starting July 5th and ending September 27th, I will be running a weekly creative writing project I’m calling The Eternal Summer Fan-Fiction Project. All are invited to take part.
