Syntax: history (opens a prompt)
history Display (shows your history)
Required by level 30

This command allows a player to edit his or her history file. History files
reflect a few basic facts about your character, including your name, age,
species, homeworld and backstory. To this end, LOTJ provides a few different
premade layouts in HELP BIOTEMPLATE, although you are free to do your own
thing. Check out help history_example for the type of information we are
looking for. Your history file's name must include your character's actual
name. One player can look up another's history file using the lookup skill.

So what makes a good history file?

A history file should be more than just copying your name and race from your
score sheet and punching in your home planet and age. Like help history_example
shows, your file should include a backstory.

"Who are you?"
-Maz Kanata

Your history file is a great opportunity to flesh out your character, give them
personality, and help you figure out their roleplay attitude. How did your
character become who they are? Are you a Lorrdian freedom fighter? A holonet
movie star turned Moff? An exiled mad Khommite scientist? A Mandalorian looking
for answers?

Sorosuub Purchases Tibanna Gas Platforms, Re-Enters Weapons Market
A holo-image is displayed showing a tibanna gas platform floating in the atmosphere of Bespin. The platform displays the familiar STS logo in places. "In recent days, Sorosuub purchased a pair of tibanna gas platforms. Shortly after the purchase was made, the company's CEO released the following statement to the press." The image then shifts to display a holographic image of a twi'lek woman. "It is always sad to see an engineering firm like Mon Calamari Shipyards close its doors. We can all only speculate what technologies might have been brought to the galaxy had they continued operations, while others will be lost to the ages." She pauses for a moment before continuing. "We had originally stepped out of the weapons market to focus on more unique technologies and give MCS free reign of the market, but with their closure leaving several markets untapped Sorosuub will be looking to potentially fill the gaps. In the coming days we will be releasing our first new line of weaponry in many years, so look forward to new products on our vendors soon."

Emperor Offers Ceasefire, Rebel Alliance Pushes Ahead
The stark-white gear of the Galactic Empire cuts onto the screen and fades out. Your view moves to the obsidian throne room, but, instead of his usual position, the Emperor stands tall at the steps before his seat, black robes spilling out luxuriously in all directions. He pulls back his hood, revealing grey eyes bespeckled with red fleks and snow-white hair, kept long, "Good evening, citizens of my fine Galaxy. Tonight, during a brief holomeeting with disgraced senator Danneke, I offered her and her ilk room to breath: a proposal for a ceasefire. Let history remember that it is I who spoke diplomacy on this day. It was not fluff, but substantive. I demanded reparations for the lives they've taken, including for the late Grand Moff Kaiden, Dragon of the Empire. I was not planning to let them off so easy, but I -was- willing to entertain a deal. Instead of a counter-offer, the commander refused to even discuss it, intimating that I was wasting her time, and playing lame theatric ignorance regarding Kaiden's death." The man smiles, but tightly, with a furrowed disposition, before continuing, "Instead of gaining a neutral standing with me, one she and her riff-raff could have utilized in a variety of ways...tonight she decided to continue war. Let no one ever forget it." The Emperor gestures forward with gloved hands, "She now leads beings to a gruesome death, and she will follow them in time. When that day comes, perhaps then she will realize the folly in her mistake tonight. Either way, my Empire marches on."
