Dear Friends and Regular Readers of the Blog–
By the fact that I’ve posted once update, this week, over the entire month of September, you already knew something was up.
And that something is: I’m not really playing SWTOR at the moment.
There are a variety of reasons, including guild implosions, friends who’ve stopped playing, and RL not giving me much time to do anything let alone play SWTOR and blog and podcast about it.
Thus, it’s time for me to take a break. I just gave a heads up to listeners who joined us live for recording this week’s podcast (which will be up on the site in a few days) that this is my last one for a while. So that makes it official.
I’ve had an amazing time being part of such a vibrant and engaged fan community. I appreciate all the access and information the SWTOR community managers have given little ‘ol me. But most of all I’ve enjoyed debating the finer points of this game with all of you. It’s meant a lot.
This domain is paid up for some time, so if I pick the game back up, you may see some new posts here. So we won’t say this is goodbye, just so long for now.
xo your roadhouse proprietress, Anexxia
P.S. I’ll still be up to no good on twitter, so be sure to follow @anexxia there.
You’re off to play with pandas, aren’t you? 😦
Just yesterday I wrote in a little review how fun you were to listen to on the podcast, I hope I’m not turning into some sort of jinx that makes nice podcasters go away…
I would love to see that review– point me to it![EDIT: o i c http://swtorcommando.blogspot.com/2012/09/podcast-reviews-again.html%5D
The TOR Reporter podcast has been an amazingly fun experience– I am glad that shone through to make me fun to listen to as well. I hope it won’t be my last foray into podcasting.
Right now though, I am just not able to keep up with the amount of playing, and researching, and prep it takes to keep it all going. So hopefully I will be able to be back in action after a while…
Noooooo!!!! You will definitely be missed! Please don’t be gone too long!
I hope not to be gone for too long, but need to give myself a time out.
And I further hope that when I come back, I’ll be able to find a fun, active group of folks to play with again because the social component is a key driver in making me excited about logging in each night.
😦 Hopefully we’ll still see you around on Twitter?
You definitely will keep seeing me on twitter. I promise!
Id say im going to miss you, but since i talk to you daily, even hourly, i know ill still have my nexxi fix!
Looking forward to seeing what the next chapter brings!
Thanks, Asros! I’m also looking forward to seeing what’s next. And I don’t doubt I’ll be back here in a bit, talking about something new and purpley in no time. Or at least before the end of Q4…
Your blog is awesome. You always managed to keep a balance between srs news (and interviews!) and personal observations.
I’ll be harassing you on twitter…
Thank you! And I would be sad if you didn’t poke me on twitter!
You’re one of my fave #SWTOR bloggers, and I’m glad I got to share some of your posts with folks via the podcast. Which reminds me, I shared your post on the surprise server transfers last night.
Awww thanks! I can honestly say that your swtor podcast is the only one I listen to. Is it going to continue while you’re out of pocket?
The podcast is going on hiatus until Chris finds a cohost. 😦
It means a lot to hear that folks have really enjoyed it.
Have a nice break! If you’re going to go play with Pandas, I’m sure you won’t be alone (ahem, cough cough, ahem i may be there too cough cough). And if you’re just going to take a break from the game, well, that’s fine and dandy too, little miss! Enjoy your time off and go see this ‘sun’ thing I keep hearing about.
I will be playing in panda land. But that was not a factor in my needing to take a break from swtor.

I don’t recall that our paths ever crossed that much in game (my main is in Republic Mercy Corps, assuming he hasn’t been booted for inactivity, IMC was so deserted by the time I rolled an alt that it wasn’t even possible to get an invite), but I’ve enjoyed the blog. As a multi-game blogger, I am at least somewhat dependent on game-specific podcasts to keep up with games that I follow but don’t play. Usually that is limited to one podcast per game because there is only so much news to go around, but I’ve been making an exception of late by adding TOR Reporter to the rotation along with Darth Hater. So those efforts will be missed as well.
I understand from one of the latest episodes of TOR Reporter that you guys were required to keep your sites single-game in order to qualify as official fansites. That’s a great deal for Bioware because it keeps you from mentioning the competition (especially if/when you get tired of their game) but a crappy deal for the rest of us because now we don’t get to see your stuff anymore. Please post an update if you do decide to start over and write about games that you are actually playing (if any), so we can update our links!
Thanks for the kind words about the blog and the podcast. They’ve both been a blast for me.
I do plan to keep posting on any non-SWTOR gaming I get up to at Bible of Dreams (http://www.furlinedteacup.com/bibleofdreams/). FOr right now, that will ost likely just be the World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria expansion, though I suspect I will get back into GW2 at a later date once their kinks get worked out. And I do hope to pick things back up w/SWTOR when time and my in-game motivation allows.
Oh wow, I did not realize that you had to keep to one game in this blog to be “official.” Of course, I’m not entirely sure what being “official” means.
I think the primary thing being official does is it allows them to link out to and promote your site on the official SWTOR channels.
Since they added a fan site forum and were asking fan sites to contact them, I sent the email as instructed. No response. Since I was waffling on whether I really wanted THAT much press, I didn’t re-send. Did they often link to you? If so, where? I’m curious.
For my augment related interview, I got linkage from FB and twitter (as an side that was the week of all the first round layoffs.) I don’t think any of my other pieces got shared that I recall.
See you soon.
