Syntax: clanmotd
Syntax: clanmotd view

This command allows clan leaders to write up or edit an MOTD message displayed
to all their members when they log in. A perfect usage would be to coordinate
clan actions, or to spread the word about new clan EQ. There are many uses for
it, and it is up to the clan leaders to figure them all out.

Use the VIEW option to see your clan's motd.


The Dark Side of the Force has fallen over the galaxy. It's users walk
freely, empowered by their leader and his Empire. Nothing stands in
their way. Its continued dominance rests in your hands.

The Jedi Order, broken and scattered, is all that remains after the
Republic that stood for so long came toppling down. It is up to you
to restore balance to the galaxy, and once again let the light shine.

OOC: Aside from making sure you are RPing to your alignment (our standard, not
yours), there are no standing orders for force users at this time.
Do what you must.

Era 3: A Fractured Galaxy

With the disappearance of EMPEROR MALDIV ROCIK and THE DEATH STAR, it did not
take long for those in the seats of Imperial power to quarrel over the vacuum
left behind. For three years, the Empire splintered into varying factions as
the Emperor's Lieutenants vied for supremacy. Only two remain now, THE IMPERIAL
COALITION and THE TRUE IMPERIUM, each stubbornly entrenched in the territory
they have managed to claw for themselves.

During the power grabs, many worlds fell to the wayside or were contested too
much by the rival Imperial factions as none were willing to give another any
sort of edge or further claim to legitimacy. CORUSCANT, the seat of galactic
power, for the first time in history lays neutral as neither Imperial faction
has allowed the other to control it uncontested. On ALDEERAAN, the ALDERA PEACE
FORCE rose to meet their ancient duty and more, as they restored some measure
of freedom and order to the planet when Imperial efforts were focused

Criminals, pirates and paramilitary bands continue to make their mark in the
cracks left by the Imperial fracture. Some, like the newly arisen GALACTIC
PEACEKEEPING FORCE are looking to make a quick credit off the misery of those
caught in the crossfire of Imperial power struggling, or who have fallen prey
to the villainy of the galaxy. Others organizations still lurk in the shadows,
waiting for the right moment to unveil themselves to the galaxy at large.

The Galaxy is in pieces, and many scramble to put the galaxy back in a way that
favors their vision. Who will manage to piece the galaxy back together? And
will it be an image of freedom, tyranny, or mayhem?

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."

Recent Changes

NPCs, Called Mobs, Player-Droids and Equipment Interaction Update
* Restrings no longer do anything for mobs. It never did before other than make them very duradifficult to figure out what keyword targets them. * Player-made droids now show what equipment they are wearing when you look at them. * Called mobs and player-made droids display weapons they are wielding at a glance when you just use the LOOK with no arguments.

Spyapp Updates
Over time, the extent to which the leader of a clan could stretch spyapp has been somewhat of a grey area, and has been taken advantage of in both positive and negative ways. We also have had some issues over the past few TLs of people attempting to skirt spyapp on technicalities such as forcing confrontations while wearing covering armor or being aboard ships without alerting their former clan or saying they couldn't land to force a spyapp-releasing fight. To help clarify this nebulous domain, we have updated the HELP SPYAPP helpfile to be inline with our helpfile format, as well as added new information. Please take this time to re-familiarize with this subset of rules!
