Quite a bit of news to get through, including some teasers from Keith on his upcoming road map. Then returning guest Ivilon, a professional composer, discusses the new music in Knights of the Eternal Throne, and the state of non-John Williams Star Wars music.
There are two Ootini guild events planned by Ducky (AhnNu) for Saturday 3 June, both on Tatooine:
- Where in the World of Tatooine is Carrman? Find an AhnNu incarnation somewhere out in the Dune Sea.
- Ootini 500 Race! Course will be announced at the event, but it’s suggested that you open up as much of the Tatooine map as you can.
Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both events are creature-based mounts.
To find out more, get in touch with our Ootini guilds!
2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Ivilon!
Ivilon’s tip is to listen to songs on repeat with tempos that match that of the cooldown of giving a companion a gift, modified with however many levels of the character perk that speeds up that gift-giving that you have:
- No perk: 2 bars at 136 bpm (beats per minute)
- Love Shack (The B-52s)
- Sorry for Party Rockin (LMFAO)
- Level 1 perk: 2 bars at 162 bpm
- I Feel Good (James Brown)
- Happy (Pharrell Williams)
- Shake it Off (Taylor Swift)
- Level 2 perk: 1 bar at 100 bpm
- Rock your Body (Justin Timberlake)
- Sweet Home Alabama (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
- Level 3 perk: 1 bar at 152 bpm
- Message in a Bottle (The Police)
- Don’t Speak (No Doubt)

4. Force Feedback
Blachloch (Blay) discovered that Chill’s facial growth could be watched over time via the thumbnails for our OotiniCast live recordings on YouTube:
Thoroughmas suggests the “Which One Is The Flesh” track from Doctor Who Series 6 could pass as a downtempo version of our intro and outro themes.
