Swtorista Birthday Bash! Saturday March 26, 8 AM – 3 PM PDT and beyond!

Hello everyone! I’m celebrating my birthday in SWTOR again this year and as usual it will be with much pizzazz (ok. It’s actually just an excuse to host some fun events and give stuff away.)


  • DATE: Saturday March 26, 2022
  • TIME: Starts 8 AM PDT, main events for about 4 hours
  • WHERE: watch on twitch.tv/swtorista
  • WHAT: Birthday party SWTOR games and prizes. Confetti.
  • PARTICIPATE IN-GAME: In-game on the Star Forge server (check activity for faction), just be above level 15 and have your ship in the story so we can teleport you. If you are free-to-play make sure to make a Twitch account so you can communicate there if you can’t communicate in-game yet if you are low-level.
  • PARTICIPATE WATCHING: Chat, watch, and enter the giveaways on the livestream link in chat. You need to be in-game for the Rainbow Mount-Off, Varactyl Vanguard, and Rainbow Outfit Contest, but not for the other giveaways.


#1 – Rainbow Mount Off

(8:15 AM PDT start, come & log in to game early if you are joining)

A live game of Simon Says with mounts, bring your character that has the most mounts to play, all welcome to play! In-game on the Star Forge server (either faction, Republic preferred), just be above level 15 and have your ship in the story so we can teleport you, though if we meet the limit, preference will be given to those with more mounts. If you are free-to-play make sure to make a Twitch account so you can communicate there if you can’t communicate in-game yet if you are low-level. YOU WILL NEED A DISCORD TO PLAY SO YOU CAN LISTEN TO LIVE INSTRUCTIONS, BUT YOU DO NOT NEED A MICROPHONE.

Expected to last about 2 hours or less.


#2 – Varactyl Vanguard

(10:00 AM PDT start to form up)

If you’ve seen us riding 600 banthas across the Dune Sea last year, I’ve been collecting Varactyls for this year’s party! Bring Your Own Varactyl (BYOV) for chance at Opal Vulptilla and other prizes, or get a free Varactyl if you don’t have one while supplies last! See here for info about getting an inexpensive Varactyl! In-game on the Star Forge server (either faction, Republic preferred), just be above level 15 and have your ship in the story so we can teleport you. Please have patience, these types of events are very very chaotic.

Expected to last about 2 hours or more.

EDIT: If you are free-to-play (not preferred) we can not trade you the varactyl. You will need to come to the stream an hour before the event and be noisy in the stream chat that you are free to play and ask us to mail you a vractyl. We need your CHARACTER NAME as it appears on the character select, and FACTION.


#3 – Lightsaber Show-Off Party

(roughly 12 noon PDT, after Varactyl nonsense)

Attend this event on an Imperial character that has a LIGHTSABER of any kind, or a HOLOGRAPHIC WEAPON TUNING and use colored crystal (not pure white, black or gray)! Let’s light up the night and then go save the galaxy! EVERYONE who attends this event will receive a free “Flourish” emote! A special surprise at the end.

In-game on the Star Forge server (Imperial Faction only), just be above level 15 and have your ship in the story so we can teleport you, and have a lightsaber or glowy holographic weapon tuning equipped. Please have patience, these types of events are very very chaotic.

EDIT: If you are free-to-play (not preferred) we will mail you flourish after.


#4 Star Wars Roleplay

(1-3 PM PDT)

I’m grabbing some friends I normally playing Dungeons & Dragons with and have invited them to instead play *something Star Wars* live on stream!

Note, there will be no audience participation for this event.


The stream will likely keep running for much of the day after these scheduled events as well!
