Full Circle

November 3rd, 2012 by Bahama

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.

I declined.

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.

Journey’s End

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!))

Ember of Journey’s End

October 15th, 2008 by Bahama

I rode into Journey’s End shortly after the Beowulf Squadron was dissolved.  Nothing could have prepared me for what I saw.  The city hall – gone.  Vanished.

My heart pounded as I tried to wrap my mind around what I was seeing.  My home town of Journey’s End – gone!  I stared at the empty lot for a few moments… then flew into action.

I called in a favor from Jamaica and had her start work on a new city hall immediately.  She spent a small fortune and it took her several hours to find, buy, borrow and craft everything she needed to construct the deed.  I waited anxiously, hoping I wasn’t already too late.

That night, with trembling hands, I used the deed.  I was asked for a name and without hesitation named it Journey’s End.  I was home again.

I called friends and they helped me establish the city.  But it was soon clear that there wouldn’t be enough room.  Looking at the abandoned houses all around me, I had to finally admit it.  Journey’s End was dead and there was nothing I could do to bring it back.

I finally resolved to move from my beloved town.  A day or so later I did the unthinkable.  I destroyed the city hall and Journey’s End with it.  It broke my heart to do it.  Before all the evidence of its existence could be swept away forever, I stole a piece of rubble from the demolished city hall.

I moved my house a short distance and there built a new city hall, establishing the city of Moneta.  My fellow citizens and I have been busy setting up our town.  Things were coming along quite nicely but it still felt like something was missing.

Then I remembered that piece of rubble I’d stashed away.  I had a brazier built and a plaque placed on it that reads “Ember of Journey’s End.”    I placed it high on a hill near city hall and after lighting it, I threw the piece of rubble into the fire. 

I don’t know if anyone will understand my need to do this.  When I look around Moneta, I’m acutely aware that everything here had its origins back in Journey’s End.  By honoring the source of our foundations, I hope to bring good fortune to Moneta.

Moneta

Guild Removed

September 25th, 2008 by Bahama

It would have been unthinkable just a few months ago.  And even though I’ve done it, it’s still all a bit surreal.

Last night I left Beowulf Squadron.

For over  a year now, Journey’s end has been my home and the members of WULF my family.  It’s been painful to watch our numbers suddenly dwindle in recent weeks.  It seems that everyone’s lives have suddenly changed all at once.  Night after night of utter silence on the guildchat channel finally let me to this very difficult decision.

With the hope of keeping what’s left of the WULF family together and building on what Admiral Fenris has achieved, one of our WULF members has started a new guild.  Though the thought of WULF coming to an end breaks my heart, I have come to face the reality that the only way to preserve what’s left of it is to breathe new life into it. 

So last night I left Beowulf Squadron and my membership was accepted in a new guild.  I remain optimistic that this is the best hope for staying connected to my dear friends and I’m excited about the possibility of making new ones….

But no matter what happens, the Beowulf Squadron will always have a special place in my heart and memories.

Vacation

September 20th, 2008 by Bahama

It started with a trip to my Lake Retreat shop to restock some of the vendors.  There was a bit of a chill in the air so I started a fire in the fireplace.  As I sat and tended to it, I realized how long it had been since I’d engaged in a relaxing activity.  I’ve pretty much been working nonstop over the past several weeks.  I’ve managed to catch up on my vendor stocking despite having been a month behind.  Special orders have been pouring in, taking up quite a bit of time.  And I even spent several hours reorganizing my paperwork for staff salaries and building maintenance fees.  But there hasn’t been any time for fun.

So I decided to finish up my work quickly and head out of town for a vacation.   I immediately headed to a fishing spot Jaegen showed me a while back.  The beach is lovely, the Ewoks are quite friendly and the fishing is awesome.  It was dusk when I arrived.  No matter.  I fished under the stars by the light of the torches. 

When the cool breeze forced me to quit for the night, I sat by the fire.  The simplicity of my surroundings made me think about how complex my life has seemed lately.  It’s been quite a while since Bermuda left, but I’m just now starting to feel like I’m settling in for long haul. 

Relations in the Beowulf Fleet have been less than ideal this past week.  Members have come and gone.  Regulars have been busy and less available to chat.  Arguments, divorce and the possibility that more may leave Journey’s End have weighed heavily on me.  Though none of it directly involves me, it’s still difficult to watch my dear friends go through it.

Despite the chaos around me, life for me has pretty much gone on the same.  But I wonder how much longer that will last.  The choices of those around me may pretty soon force me into making some pretty significant decisions about my home, my business, my friendships and personal life. It’s no secret that I don’t like change.  Having this vacation to consider all the possibilities and realities couldn’t have come at a better time.

I left the fishing dock late the next day with a clear head and a bag full of fish.  What more could one ask from a vacation?

Journey’s End Remodel

June 7th, 2008 by Bahama

Guild Hall Lobby

In the short time since Mayor Jaegen Fenris has return to Journey’s End, he’s cleaned out the guild hall and redecorated the lobby, the roof and his office in City Hall.  They all display his talent for interior design.

Guild Hall Roof

I’ve even got a new office in the building!

My Office

It might just be me, but even the sunsets in Journey’s End seem more beautiful these days…

A New Beginning

May 10th, 2008 by Bahama

With Mayor Jaegen Fenris back in office, decisions have been made about the fate of Journey’s End and her citizens….

Beowulf Squadron is here to stay along with Captain Jaegen Fenris. 

Mayor Jaegen Fenris

In fact, we’ve already attracted some talented new members! 

New Beowulf Squadron Entertainers

Journey’s End will also remain nestled right outside Doaba Guerfel.  To celebrate, a new cantina has been constructed.  Mayor Fenris put his finishing touches on it and summoned all available members for a photo shoot.

Beowulf Squadron

Afterwards we enjoyed the talents of our magnificent entertainers.  Let it never be said of our esteemed Mayor that he’s too stuffy to pull out his dance moves when the situation calls for it…

I’m happy with the way things have turned out.  I love living in Journey’s End.  Let the adventures of the Beowulf Squadron continue….

The Cost of Integrity

May 5th, 2008 by Bahama

Our mayor is back and I’ve finally been voted out of office as temporary mayor of Journey’s End.  Thank goodness!  I’m glad to have the weight of that responsibility off my shoulders.

But it’s come to light that shortly after I took over, a fellow citizen and guild member stole things out of the guild hall.  I feel awful about the theft since it happened on my watch.  Still, I’m not sure what I could have done to prevent it.  I had been nothing but kind and accommodating to the perpetrator and had thought she returned the friendship. 

It seems odd to me that anyone would do such a thing.  There are enough credits to go around in the universe and plenty of ways to earn them honestly.  Why steal from friend or foe?  It diminishes your credibility and integrity.  Aren’t those more valuable than credits? 

I’m looking at my finances and trying to figure out how I can help replace some of what was taken.  The value far exceeds what I’ve got in my bank account.  But I’d rather have integrity than credits.

Home Sweet Home

April 10th, 2008 by Bahama

My Livingroom

I recently re-evaluated my property holdings and determined it was time to let go of a few things.   A failed bed and breakfast from Lake Retreat was transferred to Jamaica for her to use as a home base for her business.  I cut back on the number of factories I own and decided to rent my shop space in Lake Retreat rather than own that as well. 

In the end, the shuffling I did left me with enough extra to purchase a home.  Not just a house but a real home. 

I’m not saying that the house Bermuda and I set up in Bestine isn’t still near and dear to my heart.  It is and I would never part with it.  But it’s not somewhere I live.  It’s far from where most of my business is done and the small house can’t accommodate much more than some memorabilia from our early days together. 

It seems wierd that it’s taken me this long to set up a home for myself.  After Bermuda left I threw myself into my business and what I did with my properties reflects that.  The only time I tried to set up a place for myself was the last time I joined a guild.  The house was torn down when I left that guild a short time later.

Thankfully, advancements in moving technology have made deconstruction unnecessary.   The freedom to put effort into my decorating without fear of moving it all was wonderful.  And so decorate I did!

My Bedroom

Even in my ‘home’ I couldn’t resist setting up an office and space to do private fittings for family and close friends. 

My Office

But the house is really just a place for me to relax and persue some non-tailoring hobbies such as bio-engineering…

The Bio-Lab

or cooking in the small kitchen….

My Kitchen

For now my home is in Journey’s End.  I’m still filling in as Mayor until things are wrapped up and our group is officially dissolved.  But I look forward to finding a new spot to, hopefully, permanently place my first real home.

Waiting for the Sunrise

February 29th, 2008 by Bahama

Sunrise at Doaba Guerfel

On my way into Journey’s End I saw a spectacular sunset the other day.  I stopped, got out of my vehicle to snap a photo of it for my scrapbook.  Just as I’d found the perfect angle to capture the beautiful image, storm clouds swooped in and hid it from view.

So it is with the Beowulf Squadron as well.  I suppose in many respects I fully expected our guild to come to an end.  After all, nothing lasts forever.   Still, I wasn’t prepared for how hard the news hit me and I’ve been trying to figure out why.

Certainly I’ve enjoyed meeting many of the guild members.  Nice folks.  But I’m sure I’ll still see them around.

Our guild leader, Jaegen Fenris, has decided to move on.  I know I’ll miss the interest and drama he’s brought to my world in recent months.  I’ve enjoyed working with him for the common good of the guild as well as the opportunity to get to know him personally.  But what I’m feeling can’t be summed up as the loss of a single friend either.

No, I guess what I’ll miss most is regular opportunity to invest in something that wasn’t simply for my own personal gain.  Sure, I love my business but, in many cases, my efforts amount to little more than a ‘sold’ email from my vendor and a couple of credits.  I joined this guild thinking I’d just hang out a bit and avoid any guild responsibility. Last time I joined a guild I was quickly sucked into that and in the end was left frustrated and annoyed with mismanagement issues, increasing responsibility and skewed expectations.  No way I was going to repeat all that!

Except that I quickly found that not investing in the guild at all was unfulfilling as well.  So I kicked it up a notch and volunteered to solve a few problems I saw.  I made myself available to help welcome new members and helped with some minor administrative tasks here and there.  Nothing big or earth shattering or even important.  But nevertheless, it felt good to contribute.  I’d struck the perfect balance. 

I suppose that’s part of what made Journey’s End feel so much like home to me.  I was invested in it’s improvement without being overwhelmed by it.  I was comfortable and happy there.  Much of the credit for that goes to Mr. Fenris for allowing me to participate without forcing titles and responsibilities on me (well, until he asked me to be temporary Mayor lol).  I appreciated how willing he was to listen, his flexibility and understanding.

So now I’m waiting for the final weeks to tick by.  I’ve got plenty of things to do…. remodel my shop, mentor Jamaica, shop for supplies, design new outfits, increase my customer base….. but I’m keenly aware the sun is slowly setting on this chapter in my life.  And I’m waiting for the sun to rise on my next adventure.

Mayor of the Month

February 19th, 2008 by Bahama

Mayor for a Month

I suppose you’d have to know me better to understand just how funny this photo is.  I much prefer flying under the radar to fancy titles or positions of responsibility.  Yet, there it is, in black and white.  I’m mayor of Journey’s End for the month. 

Mayor Fenris asked if I would step in briefly while he was away on personal business.  I followed his orders to put my name on the ballet and then waited for him to send orders to everyone else to vote for me.  I don’t want anyone to be mislead into thinking I’ve won any sort of contest here.  It was nothing more than citizens putting their faith in the directives of our accomplished mayor. 

While I’m flattered by Mayor Fenris’ trust in me, no one will be more relieved than I when my time expires. Still, I couldn’t resist grabbing a photo for the scrapbook.  It’s the only way my grandchildren will every believe such an incredible tale.
