      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.

Help IMMChat is a rule, not a guideline or suggestion
HELP IMMCHAT. Read it. Learn it. Live it. As of today, those who do not abide by this rule will not be answered. Period. That means any immchats of 'Hey, anyone there?' or any other variation of that will be met with stark silence. And, using assistance after saying 'Hey, anyone there?' and not receiving an answer will lead you to a heap of trouble. Not trying to be rude, but with fewer of us around, I don't have time to a)Sort through the bull to find the issues and b)Read through 3 hours of assistance spam. Thanks in advance.

Tatooine Commission Finds Zero Impact
It has been over a decade since the destruction of the Baktoid Medical Center saw tonnes of toxic material spew forth into the Tatooine sky causing massive environmental harm to the Mos Eisley region. In the years that followed, a local commission was created to run a ten year long study on the long term effects of the exposure to the unknown chemicals that filled the skies that fateful day. Well, the study has been concluded and the results are now being made public by lead research Merest Zall. "Greetings everyone, after careful study and long term observation, we have been able to conclude that there has been no long lasting effects from the exposure and that Tatooine is well on it's way to a full recovery. We took samples of the flora and fauna native to the planet and ran numerous tests over the last ten years and found no significant deviations in their genetic structure pre-disaster and do not anticipate any further issues arising."

Ithor elects Oblatt Baal
On an assembly area, on the planet Ithor, the newly apponted Senator, a very strong, good looking reddish brown skinned Ithorian male timidly takes the podium. "My name is Oblatt Baal and I speak tonight for the dignity of all beings and the destiny of Ithor and of the Republic." His voice cracks slightly, and he seems slightly embarrassed, "I once was a Priest of the Mother Jungle, once destined to lead the Herd, yet my path has taken me in a different direction, further than I ever imagined. The future doesnt belong to the fainthearted: it belongs to the brave." He continues and his voice begins to grow in confidence, become more fervent, "This moment is so much bigger than me. This is for every nameless, faceless citizen of the Ithor, of any race and any color and I do solemnly swear to fight for and uphold the rights of all of my cherished people that now have an equal chance at betterment because they have been given, nay, they have chosen a voice in the Republic Union. Everything I value most in my life, you the people of Ithor, the people of the Republic, have given me." His voice seems to hum melodically as he comes to the close of his speech, "The Galaxy has been through much in recent times and those of us have felt the pangs of loss, of hurt and of destruction can rest easier. But, it is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought have thus far so nobly advanced. And stand together, in peace, for prosperity, for the betterment of future generations."
