OotiniCast Episode 294

On this week’s end-of-year show, we discuss Carrie Fisher’s passing and how it was commemorated by many SWTOR players.  We also recall what was added to the game in 2016, and express some wishes for what could be added in 2017. Happy New Year!

  • Groopur of our own Ootini Knights was one of those who participated:
