While wandering the galaxy contemplating my future I sat in the starport one day waiting on my shuttle. I was approached by a man dressed in a snappy uniform. He struck up a conversation and we chatted for a bit. He invited me to go with him to see his city and consider joining his guild of pilots.
But it didn’t end there. He contacted me several days later and figuring that he wasn’t going to let the matter go till I’d fully investigated what he was offering, I agreed to let him have his say. I didn’t know that trip to Journey’s End would forever change my life.
He was persuasive and I did agree to join his guild and live in Journey’s End. That one decision set me off on a journey I never could have dreamed. I still stand in awe looking back at everything that happened as a result.
It’s all recorded here.
The amazing people I met, the home I crafted for myself there, how I confronted my fears, the friends I made, the adventures I had, the loss that led to rebirth, the comings and goings of Bermuda, the friend I lost, the pilots who made me proud, the trouble one citizen caused, the intrigue of a stranger, the Life Day celebrations, the war that went on around us, the safe return of beloved friends and even the end of an amazing era and the beginning of a new one.
I’ve written it all. From beginning to end.
I don’t know what will happen next. I’ve lived long enough to know that life can change in a blink of an eye. But as I discovered in that dream, what matters most of all is the friends I’ve made along the way. No matter what happens, I’ll cherish them…. and brace myself for whatever the next chapter in life brings.
(( It’s been nearly a year since SWG shut down. I am so very fortunate that I’ve been able to keep in touch with so many of the friends I made while playing SWG. Several emulator projects are moving ahead full steam ensuring that Bahama’s story isn’t finished yet. I look forward to meeting and making new friends in those galaxies far, far away. See you there!))
