For a while I had public API's for SWTORData, but I had never actually built anything that consumed it. So I was trying to think of a simple fun project that would allow me to do this.
I had never built an Alexa skill either, and I thought this would be a fun leaning experience.
I was also facinated by the idea of being able to ask for information about the game from Alexa.
Minor tweaks have been published to clean up some of the longer responses where possible. But this project has not really changed much since the first release
