    End of Star Wars Galaxies Celebration
    (SoE's Live server, not SWGEmu!)



    Hello everyone! For several months now, we've been sadly awaiting this day, December 15th, 2011 which marks the end of one of the greatest MMORPGs ever. Tomorrow, Sony Online Entertainment will be shutting down Star Wars Galaxies for good.

    To celebrate the end of the game that we've all held so close to our hearts, the SWGEmu Event Coordinator team will be hosting a day-long event of festivities, fighting, PvP, parties, and much much more!


    Join us tomorrow, Thursday December 15th, 2011, at 3:00pm EST/2:00pm CST in Coronet, Corellia. Festivities will start and last late in the evening, with the entire Event Coordinator team planning a series of different events and fun things to do with you guys. A monument will be unveiled as a dedication to Star Wars Galaxies, as we wave farewell to the old game, and look forward to the new updates coming for SWGEmu!

    Decoration Contest!
    Date: Sunday, October 9th - Sunday, October 16th
    Location: Dantooine, 4276, -2708
    Time: Judging will start at 6:30pm CST/7:30pm EST on Sunday, October 16th


    Come join the Event Coordinator and Quality Assurance teams as we host the second Nova Decoration Contest! Here are the details you need to know!

    (Note: When creating a character on Nova, be sure to start in Coronet, Corellia. There have been issues with other zones not working properly)

    [IMPORTANT! Do NOT log out your character inside any building. Log outside. There have been issues with characters becoming bugged on Nova. ALWAYS add a second character to your house admin list, just incase]

    Who here has the most awesome looking house? Have you ever spent painstaking hours adjusting, rotating, and pushing things into place? Do you have the best-decorated building in all of Nova?!

    Then this event is just for you! Join the SWGEmu EC team as we scour the galaxy for the best-decorated house. This event will take place on the Nova server, and we're going to get all you would-be home decorators a few days to get prepared. Here's how it's going to work: we have chosen a flat open surface on Dantooine for you all to build at. The waypoint is 4276, -2708. On the tournament day, we will look at all the houses at and around that area, so make sure you place your house as close to the waypoint as possible. At the center is a guild hall that has already been placed. Lay down your houses as close to it and make things nice and squished so we've got plenty of room! We will have a bit of a party as we tour each and every house, until we finally reach them all, head back to the guild hall, make a decision, and crown the winner!

    As for submission guidelines, all house styles are accepted, though be warned! We are looking for small details, ingenuity in crafting/naming/arranging, and overall impressiveness. Empty rooms will count against you, so don't place a huge guild hall unless you can decorate it to its fullest. Small houses with intricate rooms may be the better for the contest. When naming your houses, put both your Nova and Liberator character names in the description field. (e.g. "Nova: Kreen Liberator: Ariana"). Feel free to go color crazy, but if we can't figure out your Nova/Liberator names from the title, we may not be able to give you a prize.

    Now you may be thinking, oh big deal, an icky house contest on Nova, who cares? Well, this is where you'd be wrong, cause the contest is not just on Nova. While the server is the medium, Liberator will be where the prizes are handed out! Here are the goodies you could win!


    1st Place:
    Unique 1st Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Interior Designer Winner" Badge
    ("...winner of the Galactic Home Show and recognized as being an exceptional interior designer")
    In-game Cosmetic Alteration! (This will allow you to be a different NPC or creature of your choice until the server resets)
    Nova Bonus: Any 3 items of your choosing (will last until next server wipe)

    2nd Place:
    Unique 2nd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Memorable Personality" Badge
    ("...has been recognized as having a memorable personality")
    Nova Bonus: Any 1 item of your choosing and an AV-21 Speeder (will last until next server wipe)

    3rd Place:
    Unique 3rd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Politician" Badge
    ("...has mastered the Politician Profession")
    Nova Bonus: AV-21 Speeder (will last until next server wipe)


    So come on down, and get your design gears moving!
