CAPITALRULES CAPITAL_RULES 'CAPITAL RULES'

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

Summary
Capital rules govern inter-clan space battles and capturing planets.

An UNMANNED capital ship in orbit of a planet in a friendly sector can only be
attacked (including it being targeted, fake signaled, grenaded, tractored or
sabotaged) by WARRING clans when popular support is below 0 and the planet is
flagged UFG. Any unmanned ship that is destroyed before support is below 0
or when the planet is not UFG, in a wartime situation will result in the
restoration of the ship and a second ship gifted to the clan. An unmanned ship
out of orbit of a planet can be attacked. MANNED vessels are free game.

Safe vs. Friendly Sectors and UFG Sectors
Safe sector: Major clans' capital sectors are designated as 'safe sectors'.
These cannot be captured without immortal approval.
Friendly sector: Any sector controlled by the clan in question. These include
safe sectors.
Up For Grabs (UFG): Any sector that shows as (UFG) on the PLANETS list. A
sector with this flag means it is vulnerable to capture, and its orbital is
vulnerable to destruction should the planet fall below -1 support. The lack
of an UFG flag does not mean a planet cannot be blockaded, or have its
popular support attacked in some form or fashion.

The major difference between safe and friendly sectors is that if a safe
sector's planetary popular support goes into the negative range while
flagged UFG, you may not destroy any vessels in orbit. However, if they
are out of orbit, or if they are a part of a battlegroup in which the flagship
is manned, or if the staff removes the safe sector flag while the popular
support and UFG conditions are met - they are fair game.
and UFG conditions are met - they are fair game.

Specific Distinctions
- If a Flagship is MANNED, any battlegrouped ships in the same system are
considered manned.
- Logging out, going link-dead, or escaping the capital ship in anyway after
your ship(s) have been targeted will not negate your ship's manned status.
- Usage of any bug to cause a capital ship to target your ship and thereby
attack and destroy a ship defined as safe (Unmanned in orbit of a planet in a
safe sector) will result in the restoration of the destroyed ship, a gift of
another of the same type and the destruction of the offending ship.
- Neutral Government orbital ships are covered by these rules. Do not perform
an aggressive action (described above) against them unless support is below 0
and the planet is flagged UFG.

Refueling in Space
If a clan's capital vessel is stationed in a friendly sector where support
is 40 or higher, it will be refueled automatically if it is not in combat.

Disclaimer
We know that from time to time, loopholes can be found and exploited. The staff
reserves the right to judge any capitalrule situation and take appropriate
measures to rectify exploits.

Mandalore is Dead; The Way is Changing
The scene centers upon a beskar-armored corpse laying respectfully in state upon a large obsidian bier in the middle of Mandalore Plaza in Keldabe. His T-visored helmet, crowned with laurels, conceals his identity. However, as a young, unhelmeted warrior steps forward and begins speaking, it is no longer in doubt, "Mandalore the Venerable has passed from this life to the next. It was the Venerable who took control of the fate of our peoples following the Emperor's disappearance and the schism of his Empire. He was well-respected for his deeds and his search for honor in combat. We shall never see his like again." As if on cue, the snap-hiss of an igniter is heard before a torrent of flames emit from the crevices of his armor, the leader's corpse burning like the warrior-kings of old. Setting his data-slate upon a nearby lectern, the young Mandalorian steps forward to address the crowd, "Our people have had a... complicated history with the Sith, the Lorellian Raiders, and the Galactic Empire. Many of my fellow clan chieftains look upon our governance by Emperor Rocik and the Empire as the 'golden years'. None can dispute that Maldiv Rocik was a consummate warrior and understood the value of strength, as is the Mandalorian way. We look now to his followers to determine whether they have inherited his strength to rule, or whether they pay lip service to the galaxy. We invite governments to prove their might and govern Mandalore, but caution that our warriors will rise up if you are found wanting..."

Ithorians Rejoice over Alliance with Aldera Peace Force
A youthful, reddish brown Ithorian woman in ceremonial robes steps forward before a waiting podium and holocam. She smiles politely, extending her arms and speaking a few lines of opening a convention before settling them slowly on the podium, "Good evening, sentients and automatons. Following several meetings with the various herdship councils, I traveled to and was received by the Aldera Peace Force. Negotiations began several weeks ago, and I am glad to confirm that they have accepted our proposal of a formal alliance. Following the Scions' atrocities, it was not the fact that Aldera was able to govern Tatooine that garnered our attention. It was their ability to restrain themselves from planting a flag and gobbling up the first planet they were able to. However, we believe that our alliance is more of a perfect match. The nature of our peoples are similar - we both enjoy peace and prosperity, and both wish to have an equal say in what happens upon our worlds. In this way, we may thrive together. Is that correct, Administrator Gunve?" She smiles as she notions someone to the stage amid generous applause. "Indeed, Envoy Wilthe. The APF's original mandate was for Alderaan, but the Alderaanian people are happy to engage in an alliance to ensure more prosperity to free people. It warms my heart to see that Ithorian and Alderaanian alike can rely on each other through a peacefully achieved partnership and work together for a better future. To celebrate this union, we'll be holding a Science Fair for those with creative minds to show off, assisted by professors from the both Tarintha Learning Center and Aldera University. Details will be released in the near future."

Setdraw, so you can show off your cool draw moves
* Players can now customize the draw message for any player crafted weapon. This was previously only available to forcers for their lightsabers via imm assistance, but we thought we'd give you guys something nice. SYNTAX SETDRAW <object> <draw message>. You can clear the message by doing SETDRAW <object> CLEAR. If you CLEAR a lightsaber, it defaults to the stock lightsaber soft glow and hum message. * Miscellaneously, forcer mana will lower to their max mana if it somehow ends up more than their max now.
