Welcome to the Ember Sword Podcast! Hosted by marketing boy extraordinaire (and designated community punching bag) Svetlin Ivanov and featuring one or more guests from the development team, the show is meant to tackle any and all aspects of the game - its development, the team behind it, the plans for the future and the ideas driving the experience.

Plus, we’re only human, so expect a special episode now and then discussing all things gaming, life and beyond!

Community Cast 2

The community is our lifeblood. And we wouldn't be a healthy company if we didn't check on our lifeblood, would we? Strange analogy aside, Community Cast 2, starring CM Katrine, alongside mods Felp and Duck, delves into what the community sentiment has been like since the CMs came on board and what noticeable changes have happened in the community spaces. After that, we answer some burning community questions! Packed episode top to bottom, so stick with it until the end.

Community Management

Our wonderful community managers have now been with Bright Star Studios for what feels like forever (in the absolute best possible way). It makes sense, then, that picking their brains about all things community would be a fantastic idea. On this episode of the cast, Thor and Katrine share their experiences steering the massive ship that is our community, tell fun stories of their time with us and give a glance at what they envision the community becoming in the future. All bases covered, really.
