Queen Spurns Whiphids - Entire Race Banned from planet Lorell
Along the rolling hills of Lorell's temperate planet surface is a stage that forms a semi-circle with a distinct podium at the forefront, flanked by banners of the Lorell Raiders and their various clans including Madcap's Marauders, Leamadi's Looters, the Bloody Merchants, and Colmax's Cutthroats. These are all in vivid displays of colors. A Human-looking female with a slim figure and a scar that runs down the side of her face from her temple to her jaw steps up behind the podium, armored hands taking hold of either side and bringing her blue-eyed face to the myriad of microphones arranged on it. She immediately begins speaking in a sweet tone and a language besides Basic. A large and menacing-looking War Droid beside her robotically echoes her words in Basic. "Actions have consequences. After speaking with the Republic, I have decided to show my generosity and benevolence again, and will release the offender Remba, who has come upon my planet to insult me, without harm. However, henceforth shall all of the Whiphid species be banned from Lorell as a result of his ignorant actions." And promptly, just like that, she turns upon her heel and walks away from the podium, before the transmission is cut to black.
Galaxy Response To Trash Pileup
In response to garbage pileup throughout the galaxy, janitors on many planets are organizing and going on strike. "At first, we all thought it was offworlders disrespecting our respective worlds," said a spokesperson for the newly formed Galactic Alliance Regarding Baggers And Garbage Experts. "But as we connected with each other, we learned it was a broader issue, where reduced barriers to interstellar travel are only part of the cause." Behavioral scientists and entrepreneurs have begun searching for a solution to the trash crisis. Officials ask that people take their garbage to a receptacle rather than leaving it lying around.
Quest Credit Return Tweaking
An overall guideline for quest returns has been no more than 300,000 credits an hour. Depending on the ease of the quest, it may be significantly lower. However, we have found several quests that gave well over that guideline, with some being well over the million marker. We're auditing quests as we find them to ensure their payout is on par, so do not be surprised if your hotspot quest that was netting you a million credits an hour suddenly gets reduced to something more reasonable.
IC/OOC and Discord DMs
Hey guys - We know that as we break into a new timeline, everyone had a lot of fun on our Discord server and hopefully got to know your fellow players abit more during the downtime! Discord makes it easy to find other players and chat with them, and we like that you guys are connecting and becoming a tight-knit Star Wars-loving community! However, as we move forward with our story, we're noticing a lot of breaches in our IC/OOC policy (HELP IC) - specifically with regards to Discord Direct Messages. Please read up and adhere to this policy. Essentially, anything that happens ICly during this timeline, needs to stay IC-only until the end of the timeline. Here are some examples of what we're seeing that need to stop: * Do not DM your people and tell them to log on because something is happening that involves their character, or that they should change alts. * Do not DM people to ask for their clan secrets or for information your character doesn't know. * Do not ask RPC about a restore case. * Do not discuss your/other people's restore cases. * Do not DM IMMs unless they directly ask for it. Use immchat or email to get ahold of the staff. Basically: Do not discuss what's happening ICly with your friends through Discord DMs. Keep in mind that LotJ is A LOT more fun if you don't know every single thing going on third-hand because people are sending you messages about everything. Explore new places. Meet new people. Find ways to gather secrets ICly. If you miss out on something that your alt could have taken part in, that's fine! Catch up on the story later and handle that business with a fresh perspective. You can chat about basically anything except current timeline IC things, and we hope that you do! The LotJ Discord has a bunch of categorized channels to talk about all sorts of topics. Make use of them, even join the voice chat and talk with your pals. Just keep our IC/OOC policy in mind!
