Ladies & Gents, Wookiees & wampas, let’s get to know the borderline intelligent (and yet strangely attractive) TORWars Staff. Without further ado – here is the geeky crew that currently writes for TORWars!
TORWars is owned by Jeff and Deirdre Hollis, who serve as the executive editors of the site. Of course, these two geeks couldn’t possibly do it (or really much of anything) alone. They are assisted by some truly talented people, their senior editors, Jennifer Davis and Alice Wilkes. Truth is, Jenn and Alice (who’s also the editor of Gamersaurs.com) do all the heavy lifting, in that they both contribute regular columns, and also keep the other writers up to speed. However, both Jenn and Alice are gracious enough to allow Jeff and DeeDee to feel like they’re in charge.
The current writing staff consists of a combination of beat-up old veteran journalists, and writers so utterly brand new that they’re still shiny. The extremely refined writing skills of Marshall Carr have graced TORWars readers with his insights for years, and he still keeps readers in the know with timely news. The very talented crew of James Vacca, Hawk Silverthorne, Drew “Geldarion” Brandon, Rob Henriquez, and Jae Onasi all contribute weekly columns (in Jae’s case, several columns each week) which keep SWTOR fans both informed and entertained.
When it comes to the TORWars podcast, the executive producer and overall man in charge is Brian Waggoner. Brian not only co-hosts the show, he’s the guy that does all the editing, develops the bumpers and sound effects, and is responsible for the high production values of the ‘cast. Without him, the TORWars podcast would be but a wee little old shriveled old show.
Hall of Fame:
Of course, it goes without saying that TORWars would never have become the largest SWTOR fansite, and also the defacto “go-to” site for breaking news, general information, and intelligent insight about SWTOR, without the help of our some our past staffers. These folks put in countless hours of effort to make SWTOR what it is. Acea Engen, our senior writer, was the mainstay of our writing team (along with Marshall Carr) for years. Our staff of talented writers — Doug Bonderud, Anthony Sproson, Ted Atchley, Rob Enriquez, Susan Moses, Laurie Moran, Mark Douville, Tim MacDonald, Frank Lancaster, and Sunny Ravencourt — all contributed significantly to the success that TORWars has achieved. Though the Empire search far and wide, they’d never be able to find a more talented group of writers than these.
Of all of our esteemed alumni, the person who contributed the most was our utterly unique Editor for Guilds and Community. Kristen Archer was (and still is) one of a kind. She not only wrote multiple full-length columns each week, she simultaneously edited, approved, and published the contributions of a full stable of writers. Beyond this, her boundless energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and she came up with an endless stream of good ideas to involve the SWTOR community, entertain our readers, and make SWTOR grow. More than anyone else, it can truly be said that TORWars would never have achieved its level of success without her tireless contributions.
