SWG Legends news // Remembering Carrie Fisher

Greetings Legends,
Life Day continues across the galaxy. Celebrants are rushing to hang ornaments and exchange gifts while enjoying their Hoth Chocolate, carrying on with their festivities. Family, Joy, and Harmony; these are three of the most celebrated tenets of Wookiee culture. We carry on these traditions to honor all life and remember those who are no longer with us. Our Galaxy far far away wouldn’t be the special place we know it as without the endearing presence of someone truly special within the Star Wars universe.
Carrie Fisher first came onto our screens in Star Wars: A New Hope way back in 1977, starring as the iconic character Princess Leia and continuing to her legendary role in Episodes V, VI, VII, VIII, and IX. In Star Wars Galaxies, Princess Leia is also a character vital to the story and adventure we take within the game. She appears in numerous quests and in-game events; such as the Rebel Themepark, Remembrance Day, Life Day and much more. Her presence and energy persists as a huge part of our hearts as Star Wars fans, her fire is ingrained into the soul of the game and all of Star Wars itself.
December 27th marks the FIVE year anniversary since Carrie Fisher's passing and we want to pay tribute to the incredible story our princess. We invite you all to a tribute service to celebrate her life which will be taking place on Monday, December 27th at Dee’ja Peak on Naboo (/waypoint 5225 -1655). This event will be happening at the following time (conversions below):

A Symbol of Remembrance

You can interact with the memorial by using /Bow2. If you are within the area for 5 minutes you will have a chance to receive a unique memorial in-game item. If other players are within the area you will simply have to remain in the area until you are selected to have the memorial in-game item.
We do kindly ask that no combat takes place during this service, or unsuitable spatial dialogue. We could be experiencing a large server load during this tribute, due to this a mirrored tribute service may take place in another location at the same time, more details will be provided on the day if this is required. If you are in attendance, try to keep it as clutter free as possible that includes, storing pets and droids, storing vehicles and familiar pets and attending the service on ONE character.
There will be NO exclusive items issued with this event and there will be NO Tokens of Gratification issued

Frown not, friends. This is a celebration of life lived and never forgotten. Carrie Fisher will always be cherished family to the Star Wars fandom and the joy she brought to many of us will continue on. Together, we will make this a day of harmony in honour of our princess this Life Day.
May the force be with you always,
The SWG:Legends Team
