ESCAPE is a SWRP story, set in Star Wars Galaxies & Second Life. Set is various points in time across years of Star Wars Canon timeline, it is infact an RP story, which will feature real, everyday members of the community in the cast and production team. This page will be updated regularly with information on the story, characters, locations and plot developments.
ESCAPE is about a shuttle crash on a mysterious Imperial controlled planet. The series on YouTube ran for 2 seasons with a total of 13 episodes all shot in Star Wars Galaxies. A 3rd season was planned set after the planet's movement. However this never happened due to various actors in SWG leaving the MMO, as well as not enough views on YouTube. The overall story set at the time of the series was planned to run for 4 seasons in total. But the production has moved over to Second Life for ease of story telling abilities and set design. The story of ESCAPE has now changed from the original planned into a new exiting movie setting. The Trilogy of movies planned By TWINE LIGHT MEDIA was set to become some of the biggest & most complex of any Machinima projects yet made inside Second Life. But due to budget as well as a number of issues with making 3 movies about this story, we felt it would be better to create a new series rather then 3 movies.
[UPDATE] As of Aug.2011, TwineLightMedia are now producing ESCAPE from SE1EP1 as audio stories only due to Second Life's recent lagging for Kerian Twine, as well as other projects he's doing. The show will play out as planned, but without video aid.
The Pilot; Arrival Part 1 will broadcast on YouTube October 2011.
The Audio Adventures
On Aug 7 2011, TLM released a video asking for casting on the series for a pilot for release around Xmas 2011. Many have come forward and a pilot is in the works as we speak read for October or sooner 2011. The pilot will feature only a couple of members of the story. TLM are concerned the audio adventures won't do the show justice as it was wirrten for the visual effects, but because SL isn't easy, audio is the only step. The show will hopefully run for 3 suscessful seasons and END the way we've already planned it to.
The Pilot stories, Arrival Part 1 & 2 will feature the characters Liam Taylor and Graziak Clone arrive on the mysterious shores of the planet, unnamed yet, and work together to find out why. We hope the audio will feature enough informaiton for the listener to imagine they were there. Episode's 1 & 2 will actually lay out alot of mysteries not only about the planet and who may inhabit it, but the chracters themselves. Each episode will feature a monologue from the P.O.V of Liam Taylor as if he'd already left the planet. For audio, you need as much aid as possible in the script to help the audience imagine the planet and characters. So with monologues, we can achieve this.
Season One will run for 17 episodes
Season Two will run for 18 episodes
Season Three will run for, hopefully, 22 episodes and the special final story.
The reason behind the crash won't be told until the final season.
The New Story
The new ESCAPE storyline is starting completly from scratch, intorducing new characters and plots into the story. Some characters from the previous old SWG ESCAPE series may appear, but in a new format and their past/alternate character storyline won't be part of this timeline.
The story will follow a shuttle crash on a mysterious unnamed planet somewhere in the Outer Rim. The survivors must come together to face an ancient evil that is about to be unleashed upon the galaxy.
ESCAPE will have alot of mystery and unanswered questions that will feature in every episode. Either here or on a new wikia will each episode be laid out in detail for reading, continuaty, life facts and events within the show.
In Star Wars Canon stories, Time travel has never been easy to control. its been a mear accident that has never really worked out. In ESCAPE its no different. What ever happened, happened. The story of ESCAPE is like Mace Windu & the Secret of Tet Ami.
For each season of ESCAPE, Twine Light Media are producing ad campains to promote the show.

The Imperials reported those who crashed dead, and a story went out that the shuttle was never found. They lost control when Lyder, a passenger of the shuttle and possibly others managed to escape the planet with a Rebel spy Malaki. Titan ONE's location is currently unknown, due to its ability to be moved from a location.
