Click here to learn about how to create your character.

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!

Sorosuub Purchases Tibanna Gas Platforms, Re-Enters Weapons Market
A holo-image is displayed showing a tibanna gas platform floating in the atmosphere of Bespin. The platform displays the familiar STS logo in places. "In recent days, Sorosuub purchased a pair of tibanna gas platforms. Shortly after the purchase was made, the company's CEO released the following statement to the press." The image then shifts to display a holographic image of a twi'lek woman. "It is always sad to see an engineering firm like Mon Calamari Shipyards close its doors. We can all only speculate what technologies might have been brought to the galaxy had they continued operations, while others will be lost to the ages." She pauses for a moment before continuing. "We had originally stepped out of the weapons market to focus on more unique technologies and give MCS free reign of the market, but with their closure leaving several markets untapped Sorosuub will be looking to potentially fill the gaps. In the coming days we will be releasing our first new line of weaponry in many years, so look forward to new products on our vendors soon."

Emperor Offers Ceasefire, Rebel Alliance Pushes Ahead
The stark-white gear of the Galactic Empire cuts onto the screen and fades out. Your view moves to the obsidian throne room, but, instead of his usual position, the Emperor stands tall at the steps before his seat, black robes spilling out luxuriously in all directions. He pulls back his hood, revealing grey eyes bespeckled with red fleks and snow-white hair, kept long, "Good evening, citizens of my fine Galaxy. Tonight, during a brief holomeeting with disgraced senator Danneke, I offered her and her ilk room to breath: a proposal for a ceasefire. Let history remember that it is I who spoke diplomacy on this day. It was not fluff, but substantive. I demanded reparations for the lives they've taken, including for the late Grand Moff Kaiden, Dragon of the Empire. I was not planning to let them off so easy, but I -was- willing to entertain a deal. Instead of a counter-offer, the commander refused to even discuss it, intimating that I was wasting her time, and playing lame theatric ignorance regarding Kaiden's death." The man smiles, but tightly, with a furrowed disposition, before continuing, "Instead of gaining a neutral standing with me, one she and her riff-raff could have utilized in a variety of ways...tonight she decided to continue war. Let no one ever forget it." The Emperor gestures forward with gloved hands, "She now leads beings to a gruesome death, and she will follow them in time. When that day comes, perhaps then she will realize the folly in her mistake tonight. Either way, my Empire marches on."

Recent Changes

Undeath Bug Hotfix
Fixed a bug, that a previous bug fix of mine exposed, where it would cause permed characters to not fully die. They were effectively dead, but still existed. Shout-out to Miros' elf eyes who spotted the bug taking the hobbits to Isengard.

Blocking Hotfix
Apparently the FIGHTING position is a LOWER substate than STANDING. Who knew. This meant that my block fix meant you'd stop blocking while fighting and be unable to block while fighting. Should be fixed.
