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!

Empire Slaughters Wroonian Orphans In Response to Bombing
The Imperial Cog spins on a black screen, the music absent in the sounds of distant blaster fire. "Today the Militia chose to bombard the Wroonian Capitol building, claiming to wage war on the Empire while evacuating what they deemed 'innocent citizens'." An image of a smoking Imperial official in front of the capitol building appears on the screen. "This is the price they have paid for their terrorist acts against the Imperial regime." The image changes to Imperial Stormtroopers, moving as one behind a masked being in a sealed environment suit. Their blasters open fire on the streets adjacent to the smoking capital building, with wailing screams echoing all around. Joining the group is an Imperial Royal Guard, who tears off the head of an orphan, while the rest of the orphans run away screaming. They don't make it far as the Stormtroopers gun them down in the streets with deadly precision. A crimson blade flashes from the masked being as she cuts down citizens who jump in front of the orphans, further adding to the pile of smoking bodies lining the streets. "For every terrorist act the Militia commits to this day, the Empire will respond in kind. The future of the 'innocent' is in their hands."

Militia Bombs Wroona, Places Empire on "Notice"
A shocking act of terror was perpetrated against the citizens of Wroona as a terrorist attack rocked the the government building. Security camera footage appears to show a Lannik male running towards the building with a large satchel minutes before the bombing. Following the bombing, Orwen of Drolek's Militia took responsibility for the bombing, stating that they were placing the Empire on notice. While the Militia initially claimed no citizens were harmed, the local hospital reported at least one Imperial official was found dead after the bombing.
