Online Events Dev Diary

Online Events Dev Diary -

The Star Wars Galaxies Official site has been updated with a new developer diary by Online Events Manager, Jason "Pex" Ryan.

Greetings! I'm Jason "Pex" Ryan and I'm the Online Events Manager for Star Wars Galaxies. Some of you know me pretty well by this time, others, not at all. If you don't know me or what I do, that's okay. I've been asked to put up a Dev Diary to indoctrinate...I mean, "inform" you about what I do around here. A bit of "the man behind the curtain" stuff.

So what is it I do here? Well, the easiest thing to say is that I get to be Darth Vader. That's an over-simplification, but it's true. Anytime you see one of the Star Wars characters interacting with players and being generally where they aren't supposed to be, it is me behind the keyboard pulling the virtual strings. I get to be Luke, Leia, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Admiral Ackbar, Watto, Nautalans, droids, Ewoks, etc. Playing these "named characters", as I like to call them, is fun, but it's only part of running events for SWG.

I've been working on SWG since just after launch. Before I was hired, I managed to finagle a beta account while working at another game company, so I've been following the game as long as any veteran has.
