CLANMOTD

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

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.

FMOTD

(OOC): Please make sure you are roleplaying your alignment, those caught to be
going counter to it will be set to neutral. (This standard is determined by the
staff). Also, while it is not required for non-apps, a character sheet and
think logs are encouraged to help establish a baseline and consistent reading
of your character. If you are an app, these are mandatory.

Jedi, you are the bastions of peace and justice, but are also coming off the
heels of protracted war that saw your roles shift from mediators of peace to
active combatants. While the Jedi aren't simply the extended military branch of
the Republic, it is reasonable to understand that there will be times of mutual
operations with the Republic.

Sith, those of you who survived the war have gone into hiding, always careful
never to reveal yourselves in public. The galaxy has not forgotten the chaos
and destruction so your existence is now one of secrecy, waiting for the moment
to return to the fold.

MOTD

The first era is starting to wrap up and it's time to start plotting for the
next! We'll do a gradual transition into Era 2, The Galactic Empire, over the
next 2-4 weeks. As the imms do their usual prep work, players will start to see
IC fallout as the Era 1 storyline wraps up and solidifies. Details will be
coming later about the EoE event.

Era 2 apps are now open. We are looking for the usual suspects (engineering
clans, unique characters, etc) but we are especially interested in exciting
minor clan concepts that you're passionate about. We want to work with you and
your apps to help set the stage for the start of the era.

In apps, we'd like to know:
- Is it a new character or an existing one? We like building continuity with
existing roleplay, but it's not a hard requirement.
- What are your goals?
- How does this app contribute to the storyline?
- What will you need from staff in order to make it work?

Notes:
- Developments for this era are now closed.
- Warrior races, with rare exceptions, will not carry over to the next era. If
you feel you've got a compelling backstory to continue with yours and have put
a lot of effort into it, you're welcome to app for it, but most of them should
be deleted sometime before the end of the era.

In the meantime, sit back, relax, and enjoy the end of another great era. We'll
have information about the EoE Event closer to showtime.

Please read NEWS 38 for IC context about what happened to cause this
transition.

As always, thanks for playing!

ORA Attempts to Capture Ryloth, Trade Federation begins Galactic Deployment
Holoviewers flash as Qayla Z. brushes hair away from her eyes. She looks down to some flimsiplast notes on her desk before addressing the galaxy, "In the wake of a repulsed attempt to liberate Tatooine last night, our sources report that the Outer Rim Coalition returned to deep space to regroup and plan their next attempt. While GNI is uncertain of the actual events that took place on Tatooine last night, several of our correspondents have sent information forward that the desert planet was captured by the Outer Rim Coalition militia, then overtaken by the Empire around an hour afterwards. While we are uncertain of the O.R.C.'s path forward, we expect--" [BREAKING NEWS ALERT] The alert overwhelms the Balosar's broadcast for a moment as the camera switches to security camera footage on Ryloth, cycling through various positions and angles. Curious mobile mining machines that appear to have been converted into some form of troop transport explode out of the rocky cavern and tunnel walls. &061O&093uter &061R&093im &061C&093oalition militia soldiers disgorge into the underground city. The sound of boots stomping down ramps and weapons powering up ring through the tunnels. Cordons are moved into place as defensive points are created and upheld throughout the city. Several &166Havo&166c Squa&166d commandos move warily through the rock tunnels, on their guard as they surround Jedi Master Oola Seela. She nods at the orderly distribution of forces around her, then speaks into her comlink for a moment. Several polished diplomats move out of the amongst the people, spreading the word about the Coalition's ideals. Heads begin nodding as the message seems to be well-accepted. Switching back to Master Seela, the Jedi appears to nod in agreement with the work going on around her. Turning towards the Havoc Squad commandos, she passes along a few datadisks and speaks for a few moments with them before making her way back to the starport. Orbital cameras capture an Eta-2 Actis-class Interceptor zipping past a Subjugator-class Cruiser raining turbolaser fire towards a nimble Praetor-class Frigate. The Interceptor links up with its hyperdrive ring and quickly disappears into lightspeed as the camera fades out. Replacing the scene once more is Qayla Z., who appears rather irritated that she was cut-off mid-broadcast, "So. It appears that the Outer Rim Coalition has once more decided to attempt to sway a population over to their cause. Let us hope that this does not embroil the galaxy in war once--" [BREAKING NEWS ALERT] Viewscreens cycle from planet to planet as orbital satellites are silent witnesses to Trade Federation bulk landers cutting across space and down towards various surfaces. A few feeds remain to capture entire droid companies activating and stomping out on patrol. Audio crackles to life as a loudhailer booms to the citizens on what appears to be Corellia, "This is a Trade Federation protection patrol. Return to your homes immediately. A curfew is now in effect. Anyone congregating in a public area may be subject to imprisonment. This is for your own safety. I repeat--" And so the mechanical voice does, as the scene fades. Shaking with anger over yet another interruption, Qayla Z. returns once more, "Well. With the Trade Feder--" *DZZZZT* Static covers the broadcast as Jedi Master Oola Seela's features dominate the holos, mid-sentence, "--hacked in? Yes? Very well. Citizens of the galaxy, this is the oppression I have spoken of. When will enough be enough? Perhaps you are fine with others being enslaved as long as they are not yourself. After all, the Outer Rim may be far from where you live. Perhaps you are alright with these slavers being your rulers and masters from afar... But now they show their strength, their arrogance, in your streets and on your doorstep. Whether you have supported the Coalition or not, I ask now - when will you take a stand? Look closely at this representation of your future beneath the durasteel fist of the Federation - locked in your homes because people on the other side of the galaxy do not wish to be slaves. Rise up--" The broadcast is abruptly cut, replaced by the GNI technical difficulties screen.

Jedi Master Seela forms Outer Rim Coalition, recruits Havoc Squad for Assault
Holos across the galaxy flicker through static to a scene of an upset Balosar woman with putty smudged over half of her face and wearing a spotless set of mechanics coveralls. Her voice comes through almost as a whisper as she looks down the corridor at Kala'uun Spaceport at the landing zone. Her voice, sounding huskier than usual, clips through, "This is, uh... Tayla.. uh.. P." She looks around nervously at a gathering of Twi'leks that are some ways off and not paying her the least bit of attention, "We've tracked Master Seela to Ryloth, where we have received word that she has formed what is being called the Outer Rim Coalit-" she screeches as an automated cleaning droid bumps into her foot, then she takes off running down one of the tunnels in fear. The holocam's autotracking, now subject-less, attempts to zoom in on people left within the scene. After some focusing issues, the holocamera settles on Jedi Master Oola Seela, who is addressing several Twi'leks. These warriors are wearing fresh uniforms with the letters &093O&061R&093C on their shoulders, and are covered in repainted CEC lomtex-grade armor and helmets. A large CR25 Trooper Carrier's ramp begins to lower in the background as beings in orange and white commando armor stride towards the gathering. The audio feed cuts in and out due to the distance. "-all militia will rendevous at the station. Tonight, we will prepare for a preliminary assault on-" She nods at the commandos as they arrive, "-is Havoc Squad. I worked with them before on- *** - no fiercer soldiers exist in the galaxy. They will assist us tonight as the Outer Rim Coalition descends-" The squad's sergeant nod in agreement, then halts as one of the commandos with a communications backpack suddenly turns towards the holocam. Their carbine raises and a streaking blaster bolt zips in and destroys the holocam. A few moments of dull black cover the screen before it flashes up with the GNI logo followed by some jargon about technical difficulties, all backed with lovely turbolift music.

Welcome to the EoE Event: Rise of an Empire
Howdy folks! Don't worry - We will be starting on-time. This is just a heads-up for sort of what to expect. EoE will begin at 8pm EST/5pm PST. There will be a series of broadcasts that I will then post into a big news. Feel free to act as your characters would afterwards. As I brought up in the last changes announcement, we will be trying to cater to folks that get home after things are underway and the event begins to morph phases. Keep an eye out for an announcement about transportation shuttles. As always, we appreciate you bearing with us and taking things like Jedi Masters coming out of retirement to help be plot devices and help stir up some action in stride. Give us abit of time to finish drafting broadcasts and finishing last minute preparations, and we'll begin. EDIT: For the duration of EoE, we will be removing the 30 minutes between alt-hopping restrictions.

Various Updates 08/04/2021
For players: - A variety of early tweaks to the new planet AI system: Crime will not go up as aggressively if you have slightly below neutral public opinion, and military cost has been reduced. A few tweaks to display of information on showplanet, too. - Fixed the bug causing pirates to immediately set crime to 100, and the bug causing there to be 5x more police mobs than intended. - Otherwise non-aggressive mobs (citizens, especially) will no longer randomly join fights in the room except if another copy of the same mob is involved in the fight. For staff: - onSpawned lua triggers on mobs will now fire when the mob is manually invoked or invoked via progs. - You can now redit flags +flagname or redit flags -flagname to set a flag to true or false regardless of the existing value. - rlist aispawn now shows the list of rooms in your currently assigned area which are eligible to spawn AI mobs. They will not spawn in rooms which are: spacecraft, nofloor, private, player homes, nomob, noai - mpstat, rpstat, and opstat will show at the end if the thing has a lua prog set, and you can use (m/o/p)pstat <thing> lprog to view the prog.
