OOC and Newbie Channels

by Zeromus

 

On Legends of the Jedi, you will find that much information about the game will come from your use of the OOC and Newbie channels. The OOC and Newbie channels are combined. Characters that are currently beneath level 100 will show with the (NEWBIE) tag on OOC and will be updated to the standard (OOC) tag at and above level 100 in any class. Other tags you will see on OOC include (RPC) and (IMM); these denote members of the Roleplay Council and the Immortal Staff respectively. If you are given a directive by them regarding your OOC conduct, please follow it or there may be consequences. There are a variety of topics that can and cannot be discussed on OOC.

The topics that can be discussed include and are not limited to:

  • Questions about tier 1 quests. These are quests that level you from 1 to 25 and can often lead to other, higher level quests. Please do not hesitate to ask about these.
  • Non-IC questions about mechanics. An OOC question about mechanics would be something like, “Can I wield two pistols at the same time?” vs an IC question such as “Where can I buy the best pistols to dual wield?”
  • General questions about where things are located. Questions such as “Where can I purchase ammunition?” can be answered with something like “Typically, ammunition can be found in engineering shops.” and not, “You can get the best ammunition cells in the shop on Jakku.”
  • Other games and real life current events. LOTJ has a community of people who have been around for decades and frequently do play other games together.  As long as it is kept civil, we encourage people to be friendly and discuss whatever they’d like within reason.

Topics that can not/should not be discussed on OOC include but are not limited to:

  • In-game current events, locations of high-level quests and items, etc. Discussions about what you are doing in-game or what your clan members might be doing are strictly forbidden. Do not ask questions about where specifically to find items, mobs, etc. Do not bring this sort of thing to OOC. Experienced players are encouraged to be as helpful as possible when a newbie asks this sort of question, however. When a newbie asks something like, “What are all the Korriban quests?” The answer should be something like, “Sometimes there are people in-character who can guide you through those quests. I’d recommend asking your clan or on commnet 0 for someone to help you out.” and not, “Ask ICly” or “Help explore.”
  • Reactions to character deaths. If you have been killed (permed) by another player, do not get on OOC to discuss it. If you feel you were wrongly killed you can address it with the Roleplay Council via the RPC channel instead.
  • Rule violations. These are to be discussed specifically with staff. They can be reached on the IMMCHAT channel or at [email protected]. If you are going to use IMMCHAT, make sure to read and understand ‘HELP IMMCHAT‘ beforehand.
  • Extended arguments. Having a debate about something is fine, but if the argument gets out of hand or extremely personal, participants can be silenced or the entire OOC channel will be shut off.

 

These are simply examples of what the OOC channel can and cannot be used for and do not cover all instances of what is and is not allowed. If you have questions, the RPC and staff are willing to answer them via the RPC and IMMCHAT commands. Good luck!

Recent In-Game News

Baron Roan Passes On: Raiders Vow to Continue
The screen comes to life, displaying a battle-damaged damaged suit of ornate dragon scale armor laid atop a smooth stone sarcophagus. A somber- voiced narrator speaks, "It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of the mighty Baron of Lorell, Roan Oaken. True to his daring nature, the Baron's final undertaking was to face a fearsome Rathtar one-on-one, and triumph over it! Despite his great victory, the Baron was gravely wounded, and not wishing to impose the gravity of his injuries on the festivities, endured them in silence and good cheer, only to succumb to them after the celebrations had concluded." The voice pauses for a moment, the camera pulling back to reveal the flowers, candles, weapons, wreathes, skulls, and liquor bottles deposited in tribute all around the base of the sarcophagus, "We honor the life of Baron Roan, and continue onward, in his memory."

Rancor Precedes Attack On Corellia
Galactic News Update! "Good evening to the galaxy at large. I'm Joy DeLuxe and tonight we bring you breaking news from Corellia, although this time it isn't in celebration." A blonde human female in a fashionable skirt and blazer offers a serious frown before continuing. "Tonight we have confirmed eyewitness reports of two escape pods coming down in Coronet City followed by several Rancors and an unidentified band of mercenaries running riot in the streets. She pauses to draw in a breath, her expression concerned. The background switches over to a view of Corellia from space. "Unsubstantiated reports have made claim that one or more members of CorSec have gone missing in action, and the mercenary group may have had access to a Capital class vessel. Until we hear more, this is Joy DeLuxe with GNI."

Recent Changes

Apprentice Policy
Padawans or apprentices who are abandoned by their master and picked up by a new master will have their 2 weeks as a padawan or apprentice restarted as of the pickup date/time. It is not encouraged to shuffle a responsibility that you've taken on as a master to someone else. Think carefully before you take on an apprentice or padawan, it's an important role.

GoT Starts Tonight -- Spoiler Policy
Game of Thrones starts tonight and as a courtesy to other players, PLEASE DO NOT DISCUSS. People watch it at different times and no one likes the whole show wrecked. We're going along with the discord rule of don't discuss until a week after the last episode. This means no osays and no tells either, because we can see those. For people that just can't help themselves and need to chat about GoT, our Discord has a secret channel you can use to talk about the spoilers! You'll need to enter the command ?rank got8 in one of the chat rooms to get access to it. That's the only place for GoT spoilers.
