Star Wars Galaxies’ Wookiee Life Day returns on the Legends emu – nobody can sunset the Holiday Special

    
13

If for some reason you’re angling to check out an MMO holiday inspired by a television special so terrible that George Lucas has spent 40 years pretending it doesn’t exist at all, then I have good news for you. Star Wars Galaxies may have sunsetted, but Wookiee Life Day lives on within some of its emulators, including SWG Legends, where it begins tomorrow.

“Wookiee Life Day returns for this holiday season! Celebrations are taking place in Dearic, Wayfar, and the Grotto on Kashyyyk. Be sure to check them out. Top Imperial and Rebel leaders have met and agreed on a temporary halt of arms for the GCW invasion in Dearic, Talus for the duration of the Life Day event. You can expect the invasion to return right after the event ends. The Life Day Tree gifts and badge have been updated for this year. The original Life Day music has been added back. New Life Day items are available for purchase from factional Life Day activity vendors. Life Day Jackets can now be crafted. A mysterious reward is tucked away in a ferocious beast’s white fur on an icy planet. Can your team survive its wrath and claim it?”

Incidentally, tomorrow’s update also adds a new speederbike, new houses, a new vet reward, new storyteller props, new quests. At this point, this thing has more stuff than the real game ever did. Also, crafters rejoice: “All crafting components have had their crate sizes increased. New crates should stack up to 100. Structures Trader components may stack further than that.” I’m actually more excited about this than anything else.

I remember seeing the special on Christmas Eve of 1978 as a child and prior to watching it being peeved off that we had to go around to my grandparents halfway through it but in the event I got bored with the it after about 20 minutes and was happy to go . Didn’t see the whole thing until the early 2000’s and watched it with a group of friends but this time the experience was vastly improved by a few beers and joints .

The Holiday Special. Where they hook Chewie’s father to a VR erotic movie to make him stop hindering everyone else while the rest of the family prepares for Life Day.

If you decide to subject yourself to it, the entirety of the Star Wars Holiday Special can be found on Youtube.

Just know this, once you start down that dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

I’ve never made it all the way through.

It’s just so painfully awful.

While it’s not great if you’re into lore/Canon it has a good amount. It gives the background for Lifeday plus it is the first appearance of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.

I prefer my bounty hunters one eyed and fat and Jeff Bridges.

Boba Fett just seems all hype unless he has done a lot of cool stuff outside of the movies.

The Lobo Christmas Special is really good.

Yeah Lifeday on Legends is bigger the the traditional swg one. The Groto is an event in itself. 😎

/thumbsup /bmoc to you Bree.

The best thing of this event imo is still the music. It just makes me happy.
And getting the Wookiee Bandolier is helping out my fairly new characters.
