Aartan Away is produced by members of "The Watchers of Aartan" guild. Originally a Star Wars Galaxies PA (Player Association) "Aartan Ridge" was founded during the early development of SWG and thrived right through to the New Game Experience (NGE).
Despite SWG's fall from grace in the eyes of many, the guild and community of Aartan Ridge stayed together, branching out into other games and taking on many new members whilst staying connected through the Worlds Away Forums
With the announcement of a new MMO set in the Star Wars universe, the "The Watchers of Aartan" are once again faced with the exploration of a galaxy far, far away...
We decided to produce a podcast to give Worlds Away and The Watchers of Aartan another voice in addition to forums, as a new means of artistic expression, and in order to engage with the wider SWTOR community. In October 2010, Aartan Away became a proud member of the TOR Syndicate. Many Worlds Away community members contribute to the Aartan Away podcast, but the two regular hosts are:
Simon Depledge (Orix)
Richard O'Neill (Xeevo)
