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!

Queen Unphased by Propaganda Attempt
An image of the planet Naboo appears, overlaid by the Crown. As an elegant female voice begins, it dissolves into the Queen's features, "Our hearts go out to Seanna of Lorrd and we commend her as one who has been thrust into duty, for doing her best to care for the needs of the People of Lorrd." Pausing, she looks straight into the holo-cam as a countenance of concern washes over her visage. "The Kinetic Fleet was large enough to patrol the entirety of the Kanz Sector, and Naboo had no defensive measures to speak of. We deemed that a single vessel could be dismantled and studied, in order to potentially produce similar defense systems for -all- in need. Alas, in the wanton destruction visited upon us by the bombardment of the droid H4-L0 any chance of this was lost." A moment passes as she reflects over that horrible event. With an air of sympathy, she continues, "We represent the peoples of Naboo and understand very well the position of Lorrd, surrounded by Morgukai fleets and Battle droids. We share joy with you that your grimaces have turned to smiles, but as we see with eyes unclouded by smoke trails left behind by vulture droids, we see the Empire's attempt at propaganda for what it is." With that, a polite smile graces her features and the Queen's image fades from view.

Morgukai Call upon Seanna of Lorrd to Set the Record Straight
The emblem of the Morgukai appears suddenly on the view screen. A line beneath appears it in dark red, the sounds of war droids marching clangs loudly. Two more lines connecting to the bottom appear, forming a triangle around the emblem, and it begins to glow brightly before cutting out entirely, revealing the infamous droid, H4-L0 flanked by two red-skinned women, a Twi'lek and a Togruta. "Propaganda," the droid states to a crowd of humans in Capital City during the early evening, "is for the weak of mind, and all that the Queen of Naboo knows how to serve." The crowd goes wild, cheering loudly for a few moments and fading as the droid lifts an open palm. "Today we celebrate the combined efforts of the Lorrdian people and the Morgukai ingenuity. We cede the floor now, and welcome Seanna of Lorrd, the Acquisitions Officer who first came to us to request assistance in returning the Kinetic Fleet to those that it belongs to, the People of Lorrd." The now uncomfortably famous Lorrdian steps forward from behind the stage, the crowd cheering again. Seanna covers her face with her hand a moment, playfully hiding the embarassment from all of the attention. After a few moments she speaks, "Not long ago, word of the Kinetic Fleet went from legend to reality, and gave Lorrdians the spark of hope that we needed. I reached out to the Morgukai, not as a leader of Lorrdians, but as a citizen who loves my people and knew they could, and would, help us." She takes a quick breath, acclimating to all of the attention on her before she continues, "And despite the efforts of the Queen of Naboo's attempt to steal the Kinetic Fleet from the citizens it was designed to protect, the Morgukai came through for us, and for that, we remain eternally grateful." The crowd cheers again and a wing of Vulture-Class droids come screaming past, far above the crowd, trailing stripes of red and black colored vapor.

Recent Changes

Cyborg, Cyborg Man! I Want to be! A Cyborg Maaaan!
I know its the craze of the day right now. Due to IC events, being a Cyborg is the desire of many meat bags. Unfortuantely, in order to do that currently requires us to make a new race for each individual race that wants to be one. While we would LOVE to make anyone/everyone a cyborg, right now it is not feasible. Having said that, we're attempting to fix that so it would only require a small flag as opposed to an entire race change. We'll keep you all posted when it is able. Thanks!

Mud is back up! Thank you for your patience
Thanks for bearing with us over the downtime and shout out to Rojan for hopping on to help me with a reboot script issue. TLDR: The mud blew up (it happens) and corrupted vships.are in the process, which prevent us from coming back online. The reboot script got a little crazy, and wouldn't even let us get to the point where the mud would run into the vships problem. Rojan fixed the script, I fixed the area file, and here we all are. I had to restore a backup of vships (where we store all ship rooms etc) but it was only from 2-3 hours before the crash.
