      For some races it seems silly for me. I understand why a wookie might be point-locked, because of their large size and strength, but I don’t see why a jawa would be point-locked.

      Part of the reason is the levels that some of these races get.

      I suspect another reason for point locking a race is to give people a goal to work towards.

      Another reason is likely to avoid over population of certain races.

      Some of the races are point locked for RP difficulty reasons alone. You mentioned Jawa so I will use this as an example. Jawa have a very distinct personality attributed to their species due to the environment they are raised in. The idea of point locking Jawa is to prevent newer players who are still learning the fundamentals of the game from selecting a race and RPing outside the confines of that races behavior. A new player on a Jawa could lower the overall quality of RP on the game.

      If you feel that you’re capable of RPing a point locked race but don’t have the means to purchase it because you’re new to LOTJ. You could always submit an application under player tools and present your case. If the application is accepted the immortals will give you a character of that race.

Akim Norith Clinches Corellian Senatorial Elections
*** A brown haired brown eye man is seen seated at a desk directly addessing a camera, "Hello, My name is Akim Norith. I didn't start with alot of funding or even support in my campaign, here on Corellia. There were struggles I faced that a smaller man would hide from." He takes a moment to switch gears and puts on a more stern look, "But this isn't just a victory for me. This is a victory for Corellia. This is a victory for the Republic. Together we've won. An expanded CorSec. Safe cargo lanes. Improved trade. Those are some of the things I promised you during my run for senate. I give you one more promise though. I will stop at nothing to fulfill those promises. I am truly humbled and thankful for the chance to serve the people of Corellia." The picture slowly fades. ***

In the wake of a Morgukai blockade and destruction of numerous pirates in Mandalorian space, more and more war droids have been spotted on the surface of Mandalore, armed and seemingly patrolling the streets. The droids have been seen freely accessing critical infrastructure and seem to be enforcing either Mandalorian or Morgukai law. Citizens of Mandalore, though usually meeting governmental forces with rancor, seem indifferent to the patrolling war droids, despite the targeted bombardment of an area of the planet deep in the wilderness. Travel and trade have not been restricted to the planet, and the Morgukai issued a concise statement about reparations for anyone who failed to evacuate the area when directed. Rumors abound speculating what this means for the war torn planet, though so far neither the Galactic Republic or Sith Empire have issued statements.

Don't discuss Game of Thrones spoilers that come from the leaks
Scripts and even full episodes of Game of Thrones have leaked in the last week or so in a pretty big HBO hack and there will probably be more coming. Discussing the details or revealing spoilers from these leaks on OOC is a good way to make sure you won't be able to discuss ANYTHING on OOC for a long time.
