OOC Information: ((During the launch of SWTOR, many of the founders of Penumbral began starting the RP social event on Nar Shaddaa during our days in the Imperial guild once known as Jen'jidai, every Saturday on the JungMa server. With our server transfer in December, we wanted to share this event with the Ebon Hawk. Before the event begins to reoccur monthly, we first wanted to test the event out with the EH Community.
Each event will present alternating activities that will offer credit and cartel pack prizes. Participation in these events are optional if you wish to just mingle around the stronghold. Both Imperial and Republic are welcome and can whisper members for invites to the stronghold or find it on the public listing as ‘Sildexon’.
While the event is OOCly hosted by Penumbral, ICly, the event is presented by Sildexon Gas Mining, Inc., a financial front of the neutral organization. Association between Penumbral and Sildexon is unknown, but may be speculated by those that frequent the event and get to know Penumbral/Sildexon. Sildexon Gas Mining is currently facing scrutiny by the Eternal Empire as the company struggles to pay tribute to the Zakuul while keeping their association with Penumbral heavily under wraps. If you wish to dive deeper into the connection between Penumbral and Sildexon, please contact Luniara! We are happy to collaborate.
Zakuul & Zakuul Knights are welcomed to attend. We ask individuals who wish to play such parties be mindful of events going on and avoid directly disrupting raffles & activities.
Come celebrate and RP with us! Keys are happily offered to those who wish to have one. ))

Come have fun, do business with us! Message brought to you by Sildexon Gas Miniing, Inc., Innovation for all your Fueling Needs
Monosyllabic, cold and clipped.
Your hello should’ve prepared me for your goodbye.
You introduced yourself with a smug sureness,
A lukewarm welcome.
In between was just more of the same…
I kept thinking you’d change
But I was proven a fool.
Now my last memory of you seems fitting:
The crunch of tires on gravel as you sped out of my life,
Kicking up dust in my crestfallen face.
You couldn’t flee fast enough
To miss catching my tears in the rearview mirror…
And still, you kept a lead foot on the gas.
But honestly I’m thankful you didn’t brake for me,
Because although I have enough heart for the both of us,
I shouldn’t have to carry the whole love load.
Few regions of nebulosity show the variety of color and detail that this small region around NGC 6559 does.
At the left of this image wispy dark clouds hang delicately in the foreground of diffuse glowing hydrogen gas. These lead further toward a very bright, red arc of gas that seems to shield luminous and hot stars beneath it.
Presumably the birth and subsequent energetic radiative output of these stars causes the gas to glow very brightly.
Even though these stars have strived to push away all of the gas and dust near them, thicker portions remain (the mountains of dark nebulosity) and continue to scatter light which color the area with hints of blue and purple. NGC 6559 can be found in most wide-field images of the Lagoon Nebula.
This year you need a REAL vacation. You need to breathe fresh air, see new places, and wash away your worries with comfortable, refreshing travel.
Even an old car can give you that kind of vacation if you do just one thing: give it Ethyl.
Ethyl Gasoline banishes harmful knock, overheating and sluggish performance. it puts new life into your car; brings back the youthful power that makes it fun to drive!
Whether you’re making week-end trips or crossing the continent, remember: the next best thing to a brand new car is your present car with Ethyl.
Even if you don’t put dollars and cents value on the extra enjoyment and satisfaction of driving with Ethyl, you will make savings in lessened repair bills that more than offset its small additional cost. Ethyl Gasoline Corporation, Chrysler Building, New York City.
Sometimes you have to get in the way. You have to make some noise by speaking up and speaking out against injustice & inaction.
John Lewis (D-GA) leads more than 70 democrats in a sit in on the floor of the House of Representatives to demand a vote on gun control. House Republicans responded by turning off cameras, causing Representative Scott Peters (D-CA) to periscope live from the floor.
I think pollution is worse than global warming. I wont mind fruit trees in previously temperate areas or a few disasters. But dirt being 80% plastic and everything with mercury and lead and chlorine gas is another thing.
