    I have many fond in-game memories, and I cherish each of them.. but ONE memory I can never let go, and as long as I am involved in an SWG community, it is my endeavor to always keep it alive. That is a promise I made almost a decade ago, and one I am still keeping, in part, by sharing this post:

    When I joined SWG in early 2004, never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe I would meet so many different people from all over the world, from all walks of life, and not just interact with them in a video game, but develop lasting friendships with so many of them. Of the many guilds/communities I have been a part of, the greatest memories come from was a guild I had the honor of being guild leader up until sunset: TCU (formally IDI) on Chilastra. And of all the members I share the game with, the one I mention now holds a very special place in my heart... A fun-loving, fast running Ranger Wookie named THAR!

    Back prior to PRE-CU, so many of us prided ourselves on our various achievements. Some would try to solo the most challenging of content, some were to be considered masters of dueling, and some just had to search out and tame the most viscious of creatures... But Thar, his bragging rights came from his speed abilities. While some in the guild would challenge each other in friendly duels of combat, or even pit their pets against each other, Thar would always challenge us to foot-races through town. As a Ranger, with every speed or terrain negotiation mods he could get his hands on, that wookiee was FAST! I truly felt that he could crawl faster than most could run! And when it came to group runs, he was a brave fellow as he would run right into the middle of a large mob of Gundarks, kill one or two and zoom right back out...

    But the noe day I remember most with Thar was the one day he had logged in, and asked if all of us in the guild could meet in our town (Tranquil City on Lok)... he didn't seem to be the bight, funny Thar we all had grown used to... And once we were all gathered in town, we learned that it was not Thar at all who had logged in, but his mother... to let us all know that her young son Werner, who had played Thar for those few years with us, had lost his battle with Multiple Sclerosis. For a good few hours after hearing this, we sat and chatted with who we would then affectionately refer to as Thar's Mom, sharing the many memories we had with him. And as we chatted one thing became very clear to me: The reason why he was so proud of his running speed was because for him, a young fellow who lived most of his live confined to a wheelchair, the Thar character had become his legs! During our chat, one of the discussions was a promise I made to Thar's Mom, and that is that as long as I am in a SWG community, I will endeavor to keep his memory alive, in some manner. Even to this day, over a decade later, I still keep in contact with her on social media.

    We set up a memorial for him on top a hill right on the edge of town, and it stayed in the game until it closed. As of now, I have set up a new town (Thar's Rest) where Tranquil City once stood, with the intent of rebuilding Memorial Hill as part of that promise.

    His mother made this Youtube tribute for Thar when he passed back in 2009, and I still get choked up with tears each time I view it:

    Wow! Talk about throwback Thursday, Krego, that's a blast from the past, for real :) Good to see a familiar name here :) Now if I can just get in game. I'm not even really sure I'm installed correctly, but I'm working on it. Looking forward to playing again!

    I joined Radiant in 2004, and will never forget wandering around Mos Eisley in awe... Not having a clue what to do, but spend ages target practicing on womp rats just outside the walls.

    It was a player named Oskie, that approached me while I was coming back from a Tusken Raider kill mission, that offered to help me out, so much as to get a party together from his guild and take me Bol hunting...

    If anyone remembers Bol grinding, I salute you. Fastest way to level back then, and it was still utter torture gaining a pip at high levels.

    Too many memories to name...I was on the Eclipse server, and I can't recall what year I first began playing, but I played through to the end. I lived in the town called NorthShire Sanctuary on Corellia. I remember grinding through various professions trying to uncover force sensitivity...Doctor, Teras Kasi, Pistoleer, I'm sure there were others. I didn't take nearly enough screen shots to memorialize my time in SWG, but here's one.

    Plenty of memories.... way too many to list but one definitely sticks out. I was on Corbantis and had my eye set on getting a Rancor pet. If you remember you had to find a young one and tame it. So a guild buddy and me st out to Darthomir to get the Rancor. We finally found a young one that would be tame able. Our problem was that there were about 4 big guys standing around and there was no way the two of us could take on all of them. So we finally came up with a plan: My buddy got on his swoop and aggroed the rancors and rode in a circle kiting the rancors while I snuck up and tamed the rancor. I did actually get it but there was so much laughing involved we had tears in our eyes.
    Just one of the many things that made and makes SWG such a great game.
