The Story So Far…

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


With the disappearance of EMPEROR MALDIV ROCIK and THE DEATH STAR, it did not take long for those in the seats of Imperial power to quarrel over the vacuum left behind. For three years, the Empire splintered into varying factions as the Emperor’s Lieutenants vied for supremacy. Only two remain now, THE IMPERIAL COALITION and THE TRUE IMPERIUM, each stubbornly entrenched in the territory they have managed to claw for themselves.

During the power grabs, many worlds fell to the wayside or were contested too much by the rival Imperial factions as none were willing to give another any sort of edge or further claim to legitimacy. CORUSCANT, the seat of galactic power, for the first time in history lays neutral as neither Imperial faction has allowed the other to control it uncontested. On ALDEERAAN, the ALDERA PEACE FORCE rose to meet their ancient duty and more, as they restored some measure of freedom and order to the planet when Imperial efforts were focused elsewhere.

Criminals, pirates and paramilitary bands continue to make their mark in the cracks left by the Imperial fracture. Some, like the newly arisen GALACTIC PEACEKEEPING FORCE are looking to make a quick credit off the misery of those caught in the crossfire of Imperial power struggling, or who have fallen prey to the villainy of the galaxy. Others organizations still lurk in the shadows, waiting for the right moment to unveil themselves to the galaxy at large.

The Galaxy is in pieces, and many scramble to put the galaxy back in a way that favors their vision. Who will manage to piece the galaxy back together? And will it be an image of freedom, tyranny, or mayhem?

What role will you play? The legend awaits!

Mandalore is Dead; The Way is Changing
The scene centers upon a beskar-armored corpse laying respectfully in state upon a large obsidian bier in the middle of Mandalore Plaza in Keldabe. His T-visored helmet, crowned with laurels, conceals his identity. However, as a young, unhelmeted warrior steps forward and begins speaking, it is no longer in doubt, "Mandalore the Venerable has passed from this life to the next. It was the Venerable who took control of the fate of our peoples following the Emperor's disappearance and the schism of his Empire. He was well-respected for his deeds and his search for honor in combat. We shall never see his like again." As if on cue, the snap-hiss of an igniter is heard before a torrent of flames emit from the crevices of his armor, the leader's corpse burning like the warrior-kings of old. Setting his data-slate upon a nearby lectern, the young Mandalorian steps forward to address the crowd, "Our people have had a... complicated history with the Sith, the Lorellian Raiders, and the Galactic Empire. Many of my fellow clan chieftains look upon our governance by Emperor Rocik and the Empire as the 'golden years'. None can dispute that Maldiv Rocik was a consummate warrior and understood the value of strength, as is the Mandalorian way. We look now to his followers to determine whether they have inherited his strength to rule, or whether they pay lip service to the galaxy. We invite governments to prove their might and govern Mandalore, but caution that our warriors will rise up if you are found wanting..."

Ithorians Rejoice over Alliance with Aldera Peace Force
A youthful, reddish brown Ithorian woman in ceremonial robes steps forward before a waiting podium and holocam. She smiles politely, extending her arms and speaking a few lines of opening a convention before settling them slowly on the podium, "Good evening, sentients and automatons. Following several meetings with the various herdship councils, I traveled to and was received by the Aldera Peace Force. Negotiations began several weeks ago, and I am glad to confirm that they have accepted our proposal of a formal alliance. Following the Scions' atrocities, it was not the fact that Aldera was able to govern Tatooine that garnered our attention. It was their ability to restrain themselves from planting a flag and gobbling up the first planet they were able to. However, we believe that our alliance is more of a perfect match. The nature of our peoples are similar - we both enjoy peace and prosperity, and both wish to have an equal say in what happens upon our worlds. In this way, we may thrive together. Is that correct, Administrator Gunve?" She smiles as she notions someone to the stage amid generous applause. "Indeed, Envoy Wilthe. The APF's original mandate was for Alderaan, but the Alderaanian people are happy to engage in an alliance to ensure more prosperity to free people. It warms my heart to see that Ithorian and Alderaanian alike can rely on each other through a peacefully achieved partnership and work together for a better future. To celebrate this union, we'll be holding a Science Fair for those with creative minds to show off, assisted by professors from the both Tarintha Learning Center and Aldera University. Details will be released in the near future."

Recent Changes

The Continued State of the Mud
Sometime around the end of February, with Changes 1730, we pointed out some significant mudwide issues and mentioned changes would be coming soon. We hoped the player base had taken this address serious enough and we would not find the necessity to fully follow through with stricter punishments. Unfortunately, these warnings were not heeded and we now find ourselves having to make difficult decisions for the betterment of LotJ. There are many good players and hard working immortals that deserve a healthier and more enjoyable environment where we all come to enjoy and escape the stress of life. Furthermore, during the next few months and before the start of 2021, Immortals will be analyzing accounts and taking various aspects into consideration as we phase into what we hope will be a more positive experience for the LotJ community. It should come as no surprise that some of you will be appropriately reprimanded and others will not be returning for the next timeline and possibly permanently. To those players who have taken this time to adjust and taken Changes 1730 to heart, on behalf of the LotJ staff members, thank you.
