DRONE

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

Message Drone - a mob which can be used to send items and messages to other
players in the game. Please use RP sense when using these mobs. Sending items
to players in jails is considered bad form and the practice if caught will be
punished. Also, sending active explosives by way of message drones is illegal
and constitutes a slay to the offending party.


Using a Message Drone -

First, you must CALL a message drone. Using the call command, type 'call
message drone'. Once it arrives, you can use a datapad (See: HELP DATAMEM) to
create a message disk that is addressed to the name of the person you wish to
send the drone to, then eject that disk from your datapad. Once the disk is
ready, give all the items to the drone that you wish to send, and then give the
disk to the drone. It is VERY important that all items are given to the drone
before the disk is handed over, the act of giving the disk to the drone will
cause it to immediately go to the person specified in the TO field on the
message disk.

NOTE: If sending multiples of the same item, it is advised that said items be
put inside of a bag before sending. If sending credits, inform the receipient
that they must destroy the drone, as the drone will not be able to give
specific amounts to the recipient.

Receiving a Message Drone -

When you receive a message drone, the drone itself will give you all of the
items it was carrying, as well as the message disk. This makes the drones
useful for carrying not only items, but messages too.

WARNING: Message drones will only go to those currently on a planet. Anyone on
a ship will not receive a message drone until they have landed on a planet and
left their ship, so make sure that your recipient is in a place where they can
receive it. Also, in the event of a crash, the drone will be lost during
transit along with the items it was transporting. We will not reimburse you.

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.
