      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.

Pirate Activity Rises As Defeated Mandalorians Join Ranks
Sectors across the Galaxy have reported a large increase in pirate activity recently, signifying the end of peaceful spacelanes. With the loss of a unifying figure, the Mandalorians fractured and large portions of them surged into the pirate ranks; Either forming their own band or merging seamlessly into existing ones. Despite the significant losses at Mandalore, that marked the end of the war with the Republic, the Mandalorians still maintained a vast supply surplus in caches across the galaxy that formed the logistical backbone of their war effort. Now in the hands of pirates, experts say that the navies of various governments will have their work cut out for them.

Mandalore Sieged, Republic Victorious!
(Recent) After a grueling campaign, Chancellor Minara made good on his promise to repay Lorrd's destruction in kind. In the late hours yesterday, The Republic delivered a massive strike, led by the depleted Jedi Order Grandmaster Furyk Flinn and Master Arris Kayne and using nearly 2/3rds of its available forces, to the enemy's capital planet, Mandalore. The raid left the entire Mandalorian fleet in shambles and the entire Mandalorian Army dead. Mandalorian the Subjugator has been reported among the dead, having announced he would die a glorious death in battle shortly before being overrun. Upon completion of the raid and news of the Mandalore's death, Chancellor Minara took the podium. "20 years have come and gone. Billions have been lost. That time is now over. With the official end of this war, and our people again safe, it is time for me to step down. The time for a warrior as the leader is no more. A time of peace is upon us, and so it is time for your Chancellor to be one of peace, not war." Emergency elections are scheduled to begin within the week to elect a new Chancellor to lead.

Force and Level Points Cost Adjustment
The price of buying FORCE has been raised to 50,000. The price of buying LEVELS has been raised to their pre-firesale levels as outlined in HELP REWARD. The raise in Force cost is a temporary measure taken in lieu of the current forcer climate. As things change, the cost of force will be re-evaluated once more. The increase in cost also does not mean you have greater odds of rolling a higher amount of force when purchased.
