Join the community on Empire in Flames for this year’s celebrations of Empire Day and Remembrance Day! While once a commemoration of the foundation of the Empire, Empire Day is now also a day for loyal Imperials to mourn the loss of their Emperor. For the former members of the Rebellion, what was originally a day to honor soldiers fallen in battle in Remembrance Day now also celebrates the New Republic’s founding. Whether you fight for the Empire or the New Republic, players can listen to speeches, tear down or put up propaganda posters, and race across Endor or they can group up and join the PvE and PvP battlegrounds. Completing objectives will award you Empire/Remembrance Day coins, which can be used to barter for rewards including new schematics, air-speeders, and decoration items that haven’t yet been seen on the server. Unlike other holiday events, Empire Day allows you to participate in as many events as you want, as many times as you want. This means you can grind out all the coins you might need in the course of a couple of days, or take your time and earn them over the course of the event.
This year, Empire/Remembrance Day starts on July 1st and will run the entire month of July. Head on over to Kuat City on Kuat (for Imperials) or Hanna City on Chandrila (for NR) to get started.
Once you land at your respectively-aligned city, talk to your Event Coordinator for a quick run-down about the holiday, and the types of events available to you. Each Coordinator also has a BB-unit that you can speak with to check your Empire Day or Remembrance Day Coin balance, as well as redeem your earned coins for the available rewards.
Speak with Ingri if you’re NR, or Wulf if you’re Imperial.
Amidst the decorations and troops gathered in celebration, a handful of other NPCs are scattered about that will have more information on quests or activities you can participate in.
Welcome to the Friday Feature edition of Better Homes and Galaxies, here on Empire in Flames. This edition will review all the latest and greatest prefabricated residential and commercial units available throughout the galaxy, where they can be built, and more.
(Important Note: For now, we focus on unique housing that is available via one-time schematics. Housing native to the Architect skill will be added soon)
Today, we announce the debut of EiF’s Galactic Homeshow! Thank you to Jeil for coordinating and facilitating the event! Read on to learn more:
We have recently marked EIF’s 6th year and soon SWG’s 20th. No doubt the lasting nature of the game comes down to the community and as such we now look to celebrate some of the player’s finest creations with the Galactic Home Show. Each month submissions will open for a period of 2 weeks and close for internal voting. We may draw additional community members in at random to add in their votes.
For our first event, June 2023, submission deadline will be June 16th.
The person selected will receive a Friday Feature detailing their creation with a short interview and their in-game character will receive the Galactic Home Show winner badge.
