Welcome to LotJ!

Legends of the Jedi is a text-based MMO (aka a MUD) that focuses on a blend of competitive gameplay and storytelling. Players fill all the important roles – the heroes and villains, smugglers and bounty hunters.

The Story So Far…

 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

ERA I: Raiders of the Rim

New technologies and mass-produced hyperdrives have heralded a new epoch. The LORELL RAIDERS and other bands raid and attack throughout the galaxy. As the victim of bombardments and location of skirmishes, and in the face of the GALACTIC REPUBLIC’s ambivalence towards military intervention outside their borders, the neutral worlds have become even more fiercely independent.

Scientists in the Inner and Mid Rim are pushing the bounds of engineering and knowledge, although a few have begun to predict the advent of hyperspace maelstroms that threaten to disrupt the explosive trade and exploration.

What role will you play? The legend awaits!

Alethia Zitan, Senator of Coruscant, Retires
After a very lengthy service to the Republic, both as Scientist, Senator of Coruscant and finally Vice Chancellor, it is with the utmost sadness that the office of Alethia Ziton has announced her abrupt and sudden retirement, citing a severe incapacitating health condition. Aide's to Alethia have confirmed that she may return to the galactic scene in time, but that time is needed to focus on healing and that she cannot devote the necessary time to the Republic and citizens that she so loves. When holo'd for questioning, this is the Senator's response "I'd like to thank you all for working with me, for loving me and loving this Republic with me. I've developed a severe condition of the stomach and will be retiring, effective immediately. My doctor requires me to take some time off working so that I can attempt to recover. It breaks my heart to leave like this, but it's the only way I can for now. May the Force be with you."

Tywen Carr Issues Statement Regarding Nal Hutta
A dark haired man wearing green and white armor recognized as CorSec Director Tywen Carr by the prompter stands before a lectern at the Corellian Government Building, flanked by men and women dressed in Corellian Security armor. "Today is a new beginning. For our people and more importantly our sister planet of Nal Hutta. Today we see the forces of chaos and malcontent disbanded so that we may forge a path to a brighter tomorrow." The armor clad man sets his hands against the lectern. "I take no pleasure in the steps we had to take. They were necessary ones, but the necessary path is not always one paved with good feelings. Today I announce the disbandment of The Hutt Clans and the extended umbrella of Corellian Security Force. We will not stand idly by while sentients such as these work to destabilize governments. While they produce spice such as Carsa-B that threaten our families. While they seek to undermine the rightful Order that gives our people peace of mind."

The revamped newbie academy
This should have been posted months ago, but better late than never, right?! Years and years of area changes, "quick" "fixes", additions, and subtractions left the old academy a jumbled, bloated mess. I spent a good amount of time in the fall interviewing new and veteran players alike about their newbie academy experiences: what works, what didn't, what pissed people off, what questions the RPC got. I spent time looking at syslogs to see where new players disconnected/gave up. We had good conversations in the #newbiehelp Discord room. All that lead to me mapping out what a better academy would look like. Newbies and vets alike worked through plans in the #newbiehelp room with me, then I got to work. The area file was SO bloated, I decided early on it would need to be rebuilt room by room, mob by mob, and ended up cutting the area file size by about 1/3. The new academy should be a streamlined experience for LOTJ newbies. Navigating it should be more straightforward, the rooms should more concisely convey important information, and it should answer some of the more common questions we get on OOC and RPC. The project went live at the start of this timeline, and I recently added a bunch of new updates, hence this change getting posted now. This includes a revamped Banvhar Station. Pre-existing quests have been polished up to make things more coherent, a cargo bay quest aera has been added, and in general, it's now more in line with how quests work in the game. Direct feedback to Walldo. New players in particular, your perspective is extremely valuable. Please let me know what you think about the new academy, what's confusing, what you'd like to see added, etc. Let's keep making it better.
