Dancer's Palace anniversary contest

Almost five years ago, a new SWTOR player with a character named Stell'ange stumbled upon rp on the Lord Ieldis server. Stell met a friend, who hosted parties on a party barge on Nar Shaddaa. When the character died, he left her the ownership of his part of the barge. Servers merged and Stell ended up on Begeren Colony, looking for rpers and if anyone else claimed ownership of that barge on Nar Shaddaa. She found begerencolony.org and other rpers, one who became her partner in ownership for said barge and so she began hosting a party, every Friday night, for the late crowd, like her, who thirsted for this thing she'd discovered, called rp, once her kids were in bed for the night.

And so Dancer's Haven became a weekly gathering spot for both factions. To her great amazement, those who regularly attended became very protective of the young businesswoman when she ran into trouble with a certain Sith.

Dancer's Haven was destroyed during an attack by @Kezie against Stell and her new husband Anaris.

She bought a new barge and Dancer's Web reopened. An improved security system was installed.

When a fight broke out on the dock, between Jedi and Sith, over a youngling, a certain Captain Jaade ( @recoveringgeek ), who was an excellent starship pilot, proved a less than stellar barge pilot, when he took the barge from the dock, trying to fly away with people taking shelter from the fight, and flew it straight into another building, destroying a just about to open restaurant, but miraculously saving all lives aboard.

Stell again invested in another barge, convinced of its importance in bringing all sides together to be able to meet and get to better understand each other in an environment where violence was banned. The security system was again improved. As her previous partner pulled out, Stell sought out new partners, @Alumar , @Karmic , and a new barge opened, Dancer's Retreat.

The business grew and eventually, Stell decided to upgrade and expand, buying one of a new line of lavish sky palaces on Nar Shaddaa, opening up Dancer's Palace, with a truly top of the line security system. Stell retired from her hosting, returning to Tatooine with Anaris, to be a mom and a teacher. She hired a childhood friend, Minnette, who soon learned how to dance the diplomatic line in hosting and how to not be terrified of Sith. For a while, they ran and hosted both Dancer's Retreat and Dancer's Palace, until another attack, aimed at one of Stell's partners, sent the barge, in flames, careening down to the bowels of Nar Shaddaa one final time.

In the five years of this event, we've seen alliances formed and broken, plots planned, marriage proposals (even one that was both IC and OOC!), weddings and even a birth, within its four rp walls. Minnette met her husband at Dancer's Palace, @Sebrik and eventually also left to become a mom. For a time, Minnette's brother, Neako hosted, and now, Stell's oldest sister, Solange is hosting.

All this to give some history to this contest. Since strongholds started and Dancer's Palace opened, it's given us a wonderful, safe from trolls, rp space. But to get there, takes a key or an invitation from someone with a key. I still regularly give out new keys, to new members of the community and to new alts.

So, here is THE CONTEST:


How many key holders are there for Dancer's Palace as of today, June 10th, 2017?

The rules:
- You may only participate once.
- You may participate by replying in this thread with your guess.
- You may not guess a number that's already been guessed.
- You have until July 1st, 2017, at 11:59 pm server time to submit a guess.
- All rulings of the contest operator (me) are final.

The prize:
The person with the closest guess to the actual number will win the one and only prize of 10 million in game credits (Thank you to Sebrik for contributing to the prize!) IF the person with the closest guess guesses the EXACT number, the prize will be doubled, to 20 million credits.

I usually go with my lucky number 3, but I'm pretty sure there are a lot more key holders. So my official guess shall be...

I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Well, I've got 18 characters, and I think of them, only...want to say maybe three or four don't have one...altogether? Probably around 300.

My guess is 355



I've known about Dancer's Palace for a long time but have never attended. It's great to get a brief history of all its past incarnations.  I couldn't help but be reminded of this classic scene:
