Another update from Friday - lead writer Daniel Ericksen talks about how the TOR team develops new worlds (Voss specifically).

It's pretty interesting to learn about the process, and we also learn a little more about the Voss/Gormak back-story.

Wow. Just, wow. In the best way possible.

I love the planet atmosphere and colors being like a perpetual Autumn, gold, red, yellow, orange.

Another Force-Sensitive group of "mystics". I had wished and hoped for something like this to appear in SW lore in the past. I'd always wondered why "mystics" weren't ever used for something and it always got shot down b/c it was "too un-starwars-y" sounding. Sounding perfectly gray, they are intended to go against grains of both sith and jedi. They are comparatively rare. Interesting "happy totalitarianism"--sounds like a perfect utopia of a sort. They have a very evolved society and yet very basic and simple. They see their own visions and the visions are infallible... had by the few, while the rest are the fighters. The Voss, "mystical" and spiritual.

Then you have their rivals in sharp contrast, a tribal technological people uninterested in soul search. Gormak, marauding and developing.

Then it also has both sith and jedi ruins on that world.

Fascinating.
