Last month we expanded our Pre-Launch Guild Program with the implementation of Phase 2: Alignment, where guilds could designate other guilds as allies or adversaries. Now, as Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ moves ever-closer to launch, we are excited to announce that we have initiated the first part of Phase 3: Deployment!
Phase 3: Deployment will see any guild that meets the pre-designated criteria be transferred into the game for launch. Before we begin this process, though, we want to give all of you who are in guilds the opportunity to make sure your guild meets the following requirement for transfer:
Four members of the guild must have pre-ordered the game and redeemed their Pre-Order Code at the Code Redemption Center.
(NOTE: We have removed the additional requirement for the guild leader to log in to the website and verify that their guild remains active and wants to be imported.)

I would recommend you take a pass on Mickey’s of Hollywood. It’s potentially one of the worst laid out stores I’ve ever been in. You can find all of the items there, and more over at Mouse Gears in Epcot or Downtown Disney.
For even more Christmas ornaments: It’s a Wonderful Shop (Streets of America) – If Ye Old Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom was just too crowded for you, but you want to look around and find great holiday items with a splash of Mickey, then It’s a Wonderful Shop is the place for you.
For Star Wars Stuff: Tatooine Traders (Backlot) – Are you a Star Wars junkie? You’ll be able to find many great items to feed your addiction at Tatooine. The building itself is really cool as well.
For high-end Disney items: Sunset Boulevard shops – Hollywood Studios is packed with shopping. You can find just about any item you could imagine in this park. However, for some of the classier items that Divas like myself really go for, you can’t beat the shopping on Sunset Boulevard. Since I’m a giant “fraidy-cat” and rarely ride the Rock n Roller Coaster or Hollywood Tower of Terror I always have plenty of time to shop. You won’t be disappointed (and you wont get motion sickness from it either! +1!!!).
Find out where to shop at Animal Kingdom next!

About Choices of One by Timothy Zahn
Eight months after the Battle of Yavin, the Rebellion is in desperate need of a new base. So when Governor Ferrouz of Candoras Sector proposes an alliance, offering the Rebels sanctuary in return for protection against the alien warlord Nuso Esva, Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie are sent to evaluate the deal.
Mara Jade, the Emperor’s Hand, is also heading for Candoras, along with the five renegade stormtroopers known as the Hand of Judgment. Their mission: to punish Ferrouz’s treason and smash the Rebels for good.
But in this treacherous game of betrayals within betrayals, a wild card is waiting to be played.
About Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn
In September, Del Rey and LucasBooks proudly presented a special 20th anniversary annotated edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel that reignited the entire Star Wars publishing phenomenon – featuring an introduction and annotations from award-winning author Timothy Zahn, exclusive commentary from Lucasfilm and Del Rey Books, and a brand-new novella starring the ever-popular Grand Admiral Thrawn. One of the biggest events in the history of Star Wars books, Heir to the Empire follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after they led the Rebel Alliance to victory in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights.
But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords – the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn – has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to create.
The explosive confrontation that results is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and spectacle on a galactic scale – in short, a story worthy of the name Star Wars.
