A note from Sturm Antilles, changeling bartender and club owner : Welcome to the Outlander Club! The only place on the Jedi Council forums where booze and sex were allowed! ( Just kidding. ) [image=http://www.theforce.net/episode2/locations/pics/club.jpg] This social movement began with [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7134241&replies=554]this[/link] thread in the Literature forum, which started with a racy comment in the New Jedi Order novel Rebel Stand. I closed the thread and basically relocated it to EU Misc, where it was renamed "Sturm's Outlander Club". The first version of this social thread was a massive success, drawing almost 10,000 posts in only one month's time...unheard of for EU social threads. But, alas, the thread cap came upon it, and a new version was needed. The Outlander Club went through four revisions, each one a success.

[image=http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/feature/20020215/img/6_bg.jpg] 2002 was a great year for Star Wars fans, and I've personally made many good friends in this place. But alas, the Outlander Club was closed by the end of December. I plan to take a long leave of the Jedi Council by next summer, and I didn't want this place to slowly fade away. It was special, it's regulars were special, and it deserved to be a shining time capsule of us, as Star Wars fans, in 2002. Special note : The last page of this thread has the goodbye messages from various OC regulars, as well as a final message from myself. If for some reason you missed out on leaving a message, PM the text to me and it can be edited in. 'Till we all meet again in the summer of 2005 . . .
