Skyline of Doaba Guerfel

Doaba Guerfel, originally known as Nomad's Retreat, was a city in the Nomad Mountains on Corellia.

History

Cradled in the arms of Corellia's northern Nomad Mountains, Doaba Guerfel was a quaint mountain resort with a slow pace and peaceful history. The site was originally a private resort, complete with a hunting lodge, small hotel, and raucous cantina. The limited membership included Corellia's wealthiest families, as well as many powerful Republic senators. The resort, which was simply known as Nomad's Retreat, eventually fell under sharp criticism for it elitism. Over the course of several decades, Nomad's Retreat gradually expanded its membership and eventually became a public resort about four hundred years before the start of the Galactic Civil War.

For nearly a century, Nomad's Retreat was a seasonal resort town, with attendance ebbing and flowing as weather changed. To provide staff with semi-permanent homes, the proprietors and investors of the retreat funded construction of a village only a few kilometers from the resort. The village, which took on the name Doaba Guerfel, was populated for only about half of each standard year with a variety of resort staff, ranging from cooks and cleaning crew to hunting guides and airspeeder pilots.

During the past three hundred years, Doaba Guerfel continued to grow, eventually merging with the original resort. Nomad's Retreat no longer existed as an independent entity, and Doaba Guerfel had become Corellia's finest mountain resort city. Like many other tourist destinations, Doaba Guerfel strived to remain a placid, safe escape from the rest of the galaxy. The city was far removed from galactic politics and had rigorously resisted both Imperial and Rebel incursions.

Due to the city's proximity to pristine forests and wilderness, the citizens of Doaba Guerfel were active environmentalists. The town spent millions of credits each year on preservation and restoration projects in the hopes of protecting Corellia's native flora and fauna, but perhaps more significant was Doaba Guerfel's reputation for wild revelry. Nights in Doaba Guerfel were filled with sounds of music and celebration, and the town annually consumed more Corellian ale than all of the neighboring cities combined. It is no surprise that the festive Doaba Guerfel hosted a large Life Day celebration during 1 ABY.

Behind the scenes

From December 16, 2008 to January 12, 2009, Doaba Guerfel was one of three cities chosen to be the hosts of the live Life Day events in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. During the event, the entire city and its surroundings were covered with white snow as a constant snowfall occurred. After many players asked to keep the snow in Doaba Guerfel after the end of the regular Life Day events, the developers decided to make the weather change permanent.[1]

From SWG Wiki

Nestled into the mountainous region of northern Corellia, Doaba Guerfel is one of the smaller cities in the Corellian system. If not for Admiral Wilhelm Burke, the master Pilot trainer for Alliance and Freelance pilots, many players would have little reason to visit the city unless it's Life Day. That said, it is the northern-most city on the planet and houses the closest starport to many points of interest.

Ever since Life Day 2008, Doaba Guerfel is permanently covered with snow.
