This week's Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday Update is a Fan Friday. Senior Community Coordinator Allison Berryman posted two new polls: Which companion character are you looking forward to meeting most? and What is your favorite area of the HoloNet?
Kelzak, Nick of Time and SteveTwo's fan art, new avatars and new icons round out Fan Friday. BioWare also included new concept art for Hutta. BioWare featured SWTOR-Life in this week's Fan Site Spotlight. BioWare announced their schedule of events for the next convention season. Check it out on their Events page.
Also in this week's Friday Update, Audio Designer Scott Morton guides us through the process of creating the perfect mix of music and sound effects to complement the combat experience, from the initial conceptualization to the final implementation. Check out the Studio Insider for more details. Additionally, BioWare created a new thread for community members to submit questions for the next Q&A. The topic of next month's Q&A is sound and music in the Old Republic.
Lastly, BioWare provided a new video from last month's Fan Site Summit.
Official DevTracker posts follow the jump.

We brought 15 fan sites from around the world to Austin, Texas to visit the BioWare studio and play Star Wars: The Old Republic.
For two days, the sites met with developers of The Old Republic and played various parts of the game for the first time. Did they enjoy their time here in Austin? Watch the video report to find out!
The Old Republic community has a lot of questions and we want to answer as many as we can. In fact, we're starting this new discussion on our forums solely dedicated to finding out what you want to know. Each month we'll create a new thread for you to ask questions in. We'll be reading and reviewing all of your questions and featuring some of them to be answered in a future Community Q&A section of the Studio Insider!
This month, we want questions focused on the sound and music in The Old Republic. Please feel free to ask us anything you want to know about it!
Some things to remember when posting:
- Please keep questions courteous and respectful
- Avoid asking questions that have already been asked this month
- Ask only one question in the thread
- Do not bump posts.
Keep in mind that there are some questions we're not able to answer right now, so please don't feel upset if we do not select your question, and please do feel free to ask it again in the future!
Thanks! We're looking forward to your reading your questions!
