This article is about three booths made for sci-fi con but not only that is another one of GNW Honoree. GNW met with the creator of these booths and our next Honoree on New Alderaan. SWRP knows her as the Leader of Ka’ra. Mesh’la Morut said, “My name is Mesh’la Morut. Many in SWRP know me as the leader of Ka’ra, but I do more than just that, I’m a builder as well.”
Mesh’la Morut has been part of SWRP since 2011 or so but to her, it feels like forever. She told me that she started building consistently in about 2012 or so. She said she started out building much stuff for herself, but over the last 4-5 years, she has been building things that she sells. She told me she build half of the previous Tython build, and she rebuilt Dantooine after they moved sim. She also told me that she built booths for SCI-FI con and started with NJO and DJE last year. This Year she built booths for DJE and KOJ and her own shop.

LM for Voxyn Industries Tomorrowland Scifi con 12 Tommorrowland (102, 116, 32)
Title: #11- Voxyn Industries-Tomorrowland-Sci FI Con 12
When asking what she plans to build in the future for SWRP she said, “Not too sure. I hope to continue building booths for Sci-FI Con. I enjoy helping groups get themselves out there and visible, and sci-fi con is a great way to do that while also supporting a great cause, like Relay for Life.
Keep in mind, that I mainly prim build. I have no experience with meshing, despite my name. You can do some pretty amazing stuff with prims.”
I told her I am also a prim building but I branch out and I am now learning mesh but I am still a newbie when it comes to mesh building she laughs and the said, “I tried my hand at meshing once… it didn’t go very well…”
I also asked her what was the over the theme of her booth this year she told me that each sim of the con usually has a theme, but she doesn’t necessarily follow that when building. she said, ” With KOJ, I was really trying to evoke the sense of history with the Massassi temple, and the wild feel of the jungle moon. And with Dantooine… I’ve always found it to be a very… tranquil place. And when I was building the sim, and the booth, I really tried to work that sense into the builds. They are simple, but evoke history, at least that’s what I try for.” she told me that the Booth for her store was a last-minute thing. She said, ” during con setup. I was just poking around, and someone suggested I snag one of the smaller ones for my store… so I did. The build itself is pretty simple. I had to work around the prebuilt booth. I tried to showcase some of my more popular products, and the ones I’m particularly proud of. I also included a hunt item – each year, the sci-fi con has a scavenger hunt. Participating booths place a sign that gives a hint to the item’s location, and an item it placed somewhere in the booth for the hunters to find. This year, the item to look for in a coin, and inside that, you place whatever item you’re giving away. I have a set of sci-fi tools that I placed in mine. Simple props that people can use in any sci-fi setting. It includes a glow rod, a lantern, and a datapad.
Mesh’la Morut would like to encourage anyone who hasn’t experienced Sci-FI con to do so, it’s a wonderful place to visit – lots to see and do, and you can find some pretty neat stuff there. There are all kinds of creative people and roleplay groups represented there, and it’s a wonderful place to network as well.
There is a saying that states, Give me my flowers now. What it is saying is don’t wait until I am gone before saying nice things about me, so GNW Honoree is a GNW way to honor those who have made great contributions throughout the years for SWRP. Today GNW would like to honor Minx Bade.
Minx Bade has been in SL for nearly 13 years. She started in SWRP in 2007 on old LME. She has been scripting and building since she started SL and she hopes that she had improved over the years. Her first venture into a combat System was in 2008. It was called ZXCS. She said, ” At the time I was working with another person but since that time I have been doing it on my own” ILM was birth out of ZXCS but she told us, to be honest, it has been remade from the ground up since 2011.
She said, ” My goal for ILM was to make a system that would use any weapon but would also make things fair between the classes (force user, soldier, ect…))” To use ILM, a user would first rezz all item out of the box and then wear the ILM-SW and the ILM-SW hover text. The latest vision is 2.9.8. The User is then asked in the drop-down window to pick a Class. (force-user, force rogue, medic, soldier, rogue) No one is forced to keep their character class and can change it at any time. No penalty is given when you change also. Once you have the character class decided you can start using the abilities for that class. Each class has a different set of weapons and abilities. To gain all abilities players need to acquire a set level of skill points, Skill is earned in battles. Defeating droids, which are included in the accessories box for ILM, also gains skill Each class also has a set of quick gestures for calling your weapons and abilities. The gestures can be modified to include other chat commands like unsheathing a saber or drawing a blaster.
she told because she also made the LSC-VII kit the ILM system automatically calls the saber when it’s called from the ILM system.
Minx is also working and building new things for SWRP like she is in her final stages of beta testing for LSC-IX which she hopes to release soon. LSC-IX will be a free kit like LSC-VII was.
She also has few more ships she has been working on. A tanker/cargo ship. She said, ” I’m including the space station so it can offload the cargo and tanks. It’s a bit of a challenge due to the size. The ship is a physical flier but is 64 meters long.”
The ship is nearly complete. It is called MX5944. boy does it have a lot of space. Minx said she wanted to make a ship where RP was possible and would still be able to fly as a physical. Droids are placed to hold the seat but vanish once a human takes the seat. the tanks and cargo containers are automated to dock with the ship or the space station. The ship can also dock with the station just like the MX7701 (Arden Lyn) The two ships can also dock with each other. She said, “The MX5944 is one of the few that have this capability, but I have plans for a Hutt transport that will have it also.”
If anyone wishes to buy any ILM items they buy it with your ILM Credits at MInx Small lot where she set up ILM credit vendors. Minx is also working on some Avatars. She said, “I am currently working on a Hutt avatar. It’s coming along slowly due to RL life happenings and the learning curve for rigging. I’m also working on a K2-SO and rancor. These might be a little longer down the road as I am learning rigging and also trying to complete other ships.”
GNW always ends our interviews with the last response from the interviewer. This what Minx Blade had to say to you her supporters. “I want to personally thank everyone that supported me over the years. It was greatly appreciated and never forgotten. You gave me the strength to keep going when I wanted to give up.”

It has been 20 years since GRAE has been founded since the destruction of the second death star. Making their enclave one the oldest enclave in the galaxy. GRAE has a lot to celebrate this year. with their alliance with Mandalorian Prudii clan. they are two mutual friends who have a common enemy. The Shade Regime and their Hutt ally.
The festival started once Mary Jane Rexsus arrived. The table was widespread with food and drinks. GNW learned while there that GRAE and Prudii Mandalorian clan plan to merge group with no name changes.
Arbitras Rexsus II sighed “we’ve tried many to make alliances with but it seems Prudii knows what’s what and we’ve decided to merge with them”
Vod Prudii grunts stepping in ” No name change though GRAE has space already in their terms Elite forces in the none force-sensitive side ” he grumbles “BUT I have my services vowed with the one called Elder Vyres here “
Before GNW went on our way, we asked GRAE if there was anything they wish to tell our viewers. This is what the Grandmaster of GRAE had to say. Arbitras Rexsus II nods ” It was 15 days this next month twenty-fifth of May these Galatia basic years we destroyed Death star II we accomplished imperials as rebels then we will now ” he’d say as quote ” Ewoks as many republic citizens don’t see know what they’ve been through those years and beyond ..I intend to educate that my fellow furries friends are not always primitive “
It was February 25 when GNW wrote about the marriage of the happy couple Arbitras Rexsus II and his wife Mary Jane Rexsus. so It has been over two months and GNW travels to the Forest moon Endor to look into the happy couple to see how things were for them for these past few months.
On our visit, we learned where the couple spent their honeymoon. Mary Jane Rexsus said, “Oh it was beautiful we went first a secluded beach on Naboo, and traveled to Tython and many other peaceful planets ..then we saw the hidden gems of Endor which had just more pretty beaches and lovely mountains”
I was told that they visited the old Gupin Sacred grounds. which she said that her husband Rex had told her all about and how he’s the last of their kind. She said that The Gupin Mountains are sad but beautiful. I have never been to the Gupin Mountains on Endor so I want to know much about them. Rex said, “Gupin is half my race. They are a very powerful Shapeshifting race. There have been tales of them migrating here many many years ago. The Ewoks will tell you how they’ve protected them over the years but were lead to near extinction because of the Empire “he nods “They had homes way up the Forest moon’s Mountains which is why it’s called that”
One of the things I notice when I arrived on the base of GRAE was the completed renovation of the base. The room we spoke in was the Tyler dormitory. It was named in the remembrance of Rex’s son. Rex told us that there was a statue across from where I was in honor of Jessant Cassius. Rex told us that Grae had lost many cadets and recruits. As I notice, they continue to grow and to honor those they lost.
Mary Jane Rexsus smiles warmly and said, “There’s even an office for me AND infirmary above us and a new Council room for us” She also said, “I actually have two recruits I am training now and we’re expanding and making alliances ” she nods with a happy tone ” With a few hiccups and attacks from our Regime enemy and Hutt ties” she frowns at this.
They still have the Regime and their new Hutt ally to deal with but their new allies Mandalorian clan Prudii seem promising as they are the enemies of their enemies.
Rex said, ” “The Prudii Leader has been very generous with us and have seen to our aid quite a few times,” he said softly ” They are a very unique Mandalorian clan”
Mary Jane Rexsus and Arbitras Rexsus II last words were they were looking for anyone willing to join them and their family. they are welcome anyone around the galaxies willing to enlist.
This was the wedding of the century. it was held secretly at the GARE’s chambers and GNW has the exclusive. Anyone who was anyone was there. Jedi orders like KOJ and others were welcome to this festival event.
The couple, Grandmaster Abrbitras Rexus and Mary Jane Welson were the ones tying the knot. What a beautiful dress Lady Welson was wearing as she gracefully walked down the archway. The couple held hands and when they met that spoke declaration of sweet words of love.
“You look beautiful my love.”- Arbitras Rexsus II
“Thank you darling and you look handsome in your wedding armor. ” -Mary Jane Welson
It was Elder Vyres Yodan III who married the couple. he starts The vows by saying “Arbitras I watch you grow from a young apprentice and my grandson through most of my life. ” he smirks “You’ve rightfully led this order wisely and became the Grand Command I once was and probably better. ”
“You Arbitras have gone through much in life ..good and bad ..This I want you to remember as one of the bests.” he then turns his gaze to MJ “Lady Welson I’ve had the privilege of knowing your family when you were young,” he said smirking revealing a big secret. “They did valiant things for the Rebel alliance our golden years.”What your family did MJ for us when we were first starting out was an alway remembered sacrifice. ” he sighed and shakes his head. “BUT they, I sense would be proud of the wonderful woman you became today and what you’ve done for GRAE is honorable. ”
The couple had made their own vows.
“Arbitras ..not only you’ve saved me when I first crashed here you became my love, my mate let me in your family even when I wasn’t married to you. ” she blushes “You’ve taught me much in the force and much as a GRAE master. ” she giggles ” I am honored to change my last name Rexsus. ” she nods “And help lead Endor with you as its Royalty also.” she smiles glowing warmly in the force. ” I will love you forever eternally. “- Mary Jane Welson
“My love Lady Welson, You falling into our Forest moon was the gift from the heavens and the Force,” he said nuzzling her hand. “I cherish every time with you and you’ve helped my sanity and balance in the force since I’ve been training you. “he smirks “You make this old one happy he’s finally found someone good for him,” he said with warmth in his words as he paused. ” Mary…you came into my life when I was ready to lose all hope and you brought me that hope,” he said proudly with a firm nod. ” I welcome you to our family and always have,” he said finishing.
Elder Vyres Yodan III asked for the ring and each one place a ring on one another fingers and said I do. They both embrace and kiss and became King and queen Rexsus. I wonder where they are going on their honeymoon. GNW will keep you updated as we learn more.
