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!))

Life Day Party

January 4th, 2010 by Bahama

MNETA recently had our Life Day party.   Everyone managed to find gifts under the 1000 credit limit and they were anonymously distributed among all our guests.   I also put together some gift bags for everyone with some decorative and useful items including a festive Life Day hat. 

After the gifts were all handed out we enjoyed some drinks and music over at the Regal Beagle.  Oceat did a wonderful job decorating just for the occasion.  It was a lovely party and it seems everyone enjoyed themselves… some perhaps a bit too much….

Rockin Around The Life Day Tree

But just as the festivities geared up, a frantic call from Doaba Guerfel came in on my comlink.  The gifts collected for the less fortunate had been hijacked by a band of thugs!  It didn’t take the Brigade very long at all to mobilize, track them down and recover the stolen presents, still wrapped and ready for distribution.

Happy Life Day!

The Return of Admiral LongJie

December 1st, 2009 by Bahama

I’ve known he was on his way home for some time now.  I knew he’d be back to Moneta soon.  But I wasn’t prepared.

I couldn’t help but throw my arms around him upon seeing him, something I don’t normal do.  I stood there overwhelmed with emotion, fighting back tears of joy.  There was so much to tell him.  So many things have changed since he left all those months ago to serve the Empire…. but I couldn’t even think of where to begin.

I quickly sent out a note to the entire guild. 

Dear MNETA,

A little more than a year ago, a noble Bothan stood at my side while I fired up a guild device.  He led our fleet as Admiral of Skull Squad, donated the guildhall that is now our Community Center and funded the small outpost of Moneta.

And then he had to leave us for a time.  Off to serve the Empire.

But he’s back!

If you get the chance, please welcome LongJie back home.

It was late and soon after his arrival I had to head home to go to bed.  In the quiet, darkness of my bedroom I thought about his return.

And I cried.

I don’t think I ever realized how much I worried over him while he was gone, how much I missed him or how relieved I’d feel to have him home, safe and sound.

I drifted off to sleep with tears still drying on my face, feeling very grateful that the Empire has returned LJ to us.

Monthly Guild Meeting

November 22nd, 2009 by Bahama

Last night’s monthly guild meeting went well.   We had a good crowd attend and I was able to cover everything on the agenda efficiently.

Most of MNETA’s projects are going very well.  I’m continually impressed with how so many of our members are willing to put so much of their time, efforts and resources toward advancing our group’s goals and aspirations.

Perfect examples of this dedication are long time guild members, Ineoch and Veeta. Each of them recently took the initiative, offered their time and resources and have breathed new life into multiple guild projects that benefit all our members. 

I’m still amazed and so grateful that I have the privilege of serving this extraordinary group of people.  As we head into the Life Day season, I hope to find ways to express to them how much they each mean to me.

Comings and Goings

August 25th, 2009 by Bahama

It’s been a summer of comings and goings.

Several friends have recently been called away.  Business trips, family obligations and various other reasons have taken good citizens away for a time.  I really can’t put in words how much I miss them.  To walk by Ioh’s bunker, for instance, knowing full well, he’s not inside crafting like he always was… it’s just very hard some days.

Then too, there’s been an influx of wonderful new citizens come to join us.  Rarely is the guild channel void of good humor and interesting remarks.  There’s been plenty to keep me busy as we work to settle everyone in and set them all up with the things they need.

And then there are those who are both coming and going all at once.  Crafters who have fired their vendors and given away their inventory and walked away from their trade to learn another, more dangerous one.   Others have hung their blaster on the wall and taken to the fields to sample for materials and tinker with schematics. 

The upheaval brings a freshness and excitement to the guild for sure.  But such so many changes all at once tend to leave me feeling a bit …unsettled. 

It feels as if I’ve fallen out of my groove, rolling along in a very haphazard way.  I’m behind in stocking my vendors and I can’t seem to shake the feeling that I’m forgetting important things.  A search through my datapad reveals nothing pressing yet I can’t shake the feeling that I ought to be rushing somewhere to do something….

But not a moment too soon, this season is ending.   And I look forward to a return to the calm, stability the next one should bring.

Two Weeks Worth

March 25th, 2009 by Bahama

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of news and activity.  To sum up….

 Our village became a town.  We installed a cloning center, created a commercial district, registered on the map and gained a few new citizens in the process. 

A huge army gathered outside our new town.  Colonel Daenyathos Caeon led a small group of men, including MNETA Brigade’s finest, into battle and miraculously won.

Our town became city.  We installed a shuttleport, added new decorations, finished creating city zones and increased our citizenship again.

Bermuda appeared unexpectedly and, in typical Bermuda fashion, skipped a romantic dinner with me in favor of going hunting, took dangerous missions across the galaxy and managed to appear completely unimpressed with my work in the city.

So that’s my past two weeks in a nutshell.  I think I need a nap!

An Unlikely Victory

March 19th, 2009 by Bahama

I left the emergency meeting feeling a whole lot better about having over a thousand  troops sitting only a few hundred meters away…. but still entirely uncertain about what would happen next. 

I watched in awe as Iohimais began calling in favors and friends from around the galaxy.  Little by little a small army of our own began to appear right outside my house.  Colonel Caeon was busy gathering MNETA’s finest, ordering buffs and discussing strategies.  I watched the flurry of activity from my front step. 

As the appointed time grew near you could feel the excitement build.  How these folks can get excited about a looming battle is beyond my comprehension.  But their eager anticipation of that first blaster fire helped to keep my fear at bay.  Perhaps a win wasn’t such an impossible hope after all….

Just before they began I went in my house and locked the door.  I could hear the blaster fire interspersed with loud explosions and yelling.  As the minutes ticked by the sounds grew more and more faint.  Hours went by and listening intensely to the quiet, I drifted off. 

I awoke with a start the next morning.  I ran to the door, pressed my ear to it and listened.  There was nothing but silence.  I opened it and stepped cautiously outside.  I looked down toward the river.   The only movement was the gentle swaying of the trees in the morning breeze.

I hopped on my swoop and made that same large arc around the area coming to rest where I’d first seen that droid army yesterday.

Nothing.  Nothing but gears and metal shards scattered over the landscape to prove I hadn’t just dreamt the whole affair.

I raced back to town where I found Once.  She told me all about the long, bloody battle.  We’d experienced some casualties but no one had been seriously injured.  And in the end…. we’d defeated hundreds of foes with little more than a handful of brave men and women.

Past the Panic

March 19th, 2009 by Bahama

With citizens scattered throughout the galaxy, only three were able to join me in city hall for the emergency meeting.  As it turns out, it was the three I most needed to speak with.

Ioh was there, of course.  I’d asked him to come early so I could speak with him in private.  I felt it was only fair to warn him ahead of time of my plan to suggest that a possible solution to bring peace back to Moneta was to move Iohimais out of town and into hiding.

When the other two citizens arrived, I should have known right then that peace wasn’t in the cards.   Colonel Caeon and one of his sharp new recruits went out and surveyed the situation.  He agreed the situation was indeed, quite grave.  But he remained remarkably calm and asked if any demands had been made yet.

In my panicked state of mind, the thought hadn’t even occurred to me

He bravely offered to go and open a dialog to find out what it was they wanted even as he calculated what more we’d need to win a war and how long it would take us.  Listening to him move smoothly through the various scenarios without so much as a tremor of fear in his voice, it suddenly occurred to me that this is exactly why I’d hired this man for the job.

He ended his list of possible outcomes with the worst case scenario – certain death for us all.   But somehow he managed to deliver it with a chuckle and a smile that made even that seem like it wasn’t so bad.

When I first took this leadership position, I made it clear to everyone with me that day that although I had aptitude for certain parts of the job, it was only with a capable team at my side that I could succeed.  Many times since, I’ve reminded myself and others of this irrefutable fact.  Yet somehow hundreds and hundreds of battle droids caused me to panic and feel all alone in this mess…. when all the while a team of outstanding individuals stood  waiting to do what they do best.

1st MNETA Brigade

March 18th, 2009 by Bahama

It seems a need for increased security has accompanied our recent increase in size.  Gone are the days of a safe, quaint little village.

Colonel Daenyathos Caeon is overseeing the initiation of a local security force called the 1st MNETA Brigade.  His resume is impeccable, his knowledge and skill in the field impressive. I trust him implicitly to have a well trained militia up and running in no time. 

Which is good, because it seems that thanks to Iohimais, we’ll need them sooner rather than later.

More Trouble in Moneta

March 7th, 2009 by Bahama

When I spoke with Iohimais last week about the small army camping out around his bunker, I gave him a week to clear up the problem and bring Moneta back to being a place where we could walk around without fear. 

A few days ago, I rode into town and was shocked to find they’d all gone.  I breathed a sigh of relief and went about my business, thankful that the situation had been resolved.

Or had it?

Today I was working overtime on a new uniform in my office in Moneta.  I’d been at it for hours and when I began mixing up various shades of brown I was working with, I decided a quick nap would help clear my head.  I laid on the couch and closed my eyes.

A while later I woke to a crashing sound.  Still dressed in mixed up sample pieces of the project I’d been working on, I ventured to the entrance of city hall.  Parts of an aircraft lay burning near the town square and several familiar looking gunmen were scattered about.

I quickly ducked back into my office and sent out a distress message on the guild channel.  It wasn’t long before a parade of armed citizens secretly joined me in city hall to try to piece together what had happened.

No one knew exactly what was going on.  One citizen noted he’d seen a Skull Squad ship firing at an unknown vessel near the Corellian space station.  It came as no surprise that the person doing the firing was none other than our dear Iohimais. 

My foremost concern is always Moneta’s citizens so after unsuccessful attempts at hailing Ioh, we quietly left the strangers scavenging their wreckage in Moneta and went to the starport to launch a search party.  

Once in the air, we successfully tracked him down in another system.  He explained he’d stumbled across a theft in progress in Moneta, taken down the shuttle they were using to transport the goods they’d stolen and then chased the escort ships. 

With the citizens accounted for, the next task was to secure Moneta.  I’d only gotten a brief look at the group we’d left with their broken shuttle in the middle of town, but I was fairly certain we were going to be outnumbered.  But given the circumstances, negotiations for a peaceful end seemed as much like a suicide mission as simply going in with guns drawn.

We gathered outside of town and laid out a plan of attack.  It was executed well and our citizens managed to rid the town of the intruders with only a few minor injuries. 

Scattered among them we found several crates of weapons and equipment from Av’ar’s munitions shop.  There’s still some disagreement about who these thieves were but I have theories of my own.  See, that small army that camped outside of Ioh’s place had a clear view of Av’ar’s workshop…. and nothing better to do for days on end than to observe our citizens as they went about their work. 

Though Ioh always presents it to me as no big deal, speaking to other citizens I’ve discovered that Czerka employees have set up in his bunker against his wishes.  It seems the situation has not been resolved as I’d hoped.

As much as it pains me to have to, I’ve enlisted the help of Colonel Daenyathos Caeon to train a number of volunteers to help form a security force for Moneta.  They will be known as the 1st MNETA Brigade. 

I remain hopeful that the streets of Moneta will one day be safe and secure again.  In the meantime, I’m encouraging all her citizens to go about their business with the upmost caution.
