Congratulations, you’re officially playing LOTJ!

This is the first room of the newbie academy:

You might see some messages scroll past pretty soon…

The first two lines are your prompt: it shows you relevant information about you and your surroundings. It is customizable, but we’ll get to that later.

The next two lines is another player speaking on CommNet 0 – that is the game’s main in-character chatline.

The “time passes” line is the area’s reset message – don’t worry too much about that for now.

The last three lines are your fellow players shooting the breeze on the game’s “talk about whatever out of character” channel, or OOC.

Let’s get moving. Type ‘look’ and hit enter to see what’s around you. Towards the bottom, you’ll see the obvious choices of where your character can move. Type the direction, go the direction.

In this case, type north and hit enter.

You made it to the second room!

From here, continue moving along in the same manner. It might also help you to read as many help files as possible. Help 1 through help 17 are the best helpfiles in the world for new players. I’d suggest starting there. As always, you can ask the RPC or the IMMs for help!

Organization Dossier: Harrin Trade Outfitters
Organization: Harrin Trade Outfitters Leader: Vyktor Headquarters: Wroona Comm Contact: 973 Historical Data Founded nearly seventy-five years and a family generation ago, Harrin Trade Outfitters catered to the resilient traders that plied the small Harrin Trade Route that connects the Rim worlds to the Core territories. Freighter maintenance was how the company made their name until the owners son, Vyktor, chose to diversify into equipment manufacturing. Teaming up with an Ubese hunter, the pair decided to cater almost exclusively to the roughest denizens that the galaxy has to offer. Rebuffing political and religious organizations, the Outfitters have built a reputation for quality and privacy surrounding not only their transactions, but their business as a whole. However, it was only about eleven years ago when Vyktor began marketing his services to anyone who needed anything. Leveraging the war that occurred between the major droid powers, Harrin Trade Outfitters began a salvage initiative to cleanse the galaxy of wartime remnants, eventually earning enough credits to complete a state-of-the-art manufacturing and shipyard facility on Wroona, where they now offer a wide array of services to all.

Organization Dossier: Behemoth Industries
Organization: Behemoth Industries Leader: Rothmar Mekinth Headquarters: Ithor Comm Contact: 1 Historical Data Following the dissolution of Arakyd Industries, many of their employees were left homeless, jobless, and drifting. One such being was Foreman Rothmar Mekinth. Despondent and unsure of what to do with himself following Arakyd, he eventually opened a private enterprise on Ithor with a focus on improving the quality of materials he found to work with. With each successful development, every new employee hired, and new service lines opened, a stable foundation was laid for an engineering corporation so massive that it would not - could not - be ignored. An organization that all races and beings of the galaxy would come to depend on, that services all corners of the galaxy: Behemoth Industries.

Recent Changes

Languages of the Galaxy!
There seems to be an new meta running through the pbase that needs to be addressed. While basic is the most common language in the galaxy, both in canon and EU, not everyone in the galaxy speaks it. In light of that, if I get reports of players saying "WE KNOW YOU CAN SPEAK BASIC, SO SPEAK IT", I will deal with the matter personally. Star Wars is set in a galaxy filled with thousands of planets, and it is ridiculous to expect every race to speak basic. If a character has set a precedent of speaking a non-basic language, you WILL NOT force them to speak basic or punish them for not doing so. If it involves service, you can choose not to serve them. If you arrest someone, there are ways to translate what the character is saying(translation droids, learning the language, protocol droids, etc). Thanks and Happy Mudding!

GNI Auto-News Clean-up and Priorities
* GNI no longer cares to report on planets with no government. * GNI now has different reporting priorities, being more concerned with bombardments and blockades before anything else.
