The planet of Onderon has a much more vast story history than I was aware of, with the location used in comic book form, TV series form, and in KOTOR II. As one would expect, three different media’s worth of inspiration also translates to a lot of lore to chew on, and that’s just what was discussed by Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Charles Boyd in an interview from Swtorista.
The interview takes a deep dive into the planet’s canon history, asking about the implications of the KOTOR II storyline on this version of the planet, where Onderon got most of its visual inspiration, and what players can expect in terms of story beats for the planet on the Republic and Imperial sides.
It’s all about lore, so if you’re hoping for gameplay revelations, you’ll be sorely disappointed. For Star Wars lore hounds, hearing two people discuss past and present story beats based on the planet is pretty awesome to listen to. The interview is embedded below.
