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!

Ceasefire Declared between the Imperial Splinter Factions
The broadcast opens up with the logo of the Imperial Coalition Network, before spinning away to reveal a human reporter sitting before a desk in a pristine metal office. "Greetings from ICN, your news network for everything from the mundane to the galaxy changing, and boy has the last few days been galaxy changing. Many around the galaxy were surprised to hear the Coalition and Imperium had declared a ceasefire, ending a conflict that had started since Korriban had asked the two governments to step in." The reporter is replaced by an image of two individuals, a human male getting on in age dressed in black robes bearing the Emperor's mark, and a much younger human male in ornately trimmed clothing, standing on the planet surface surrounded by Imperial Darktroopers and Imperium Stormtroopers. "Earlier today Grand Moff Breuth and Lord Tenik Lennistar met on a neutral world to formalize a ceasefire that would let peace return to both Imperial factions. The two told reporters that they had reached this decision through diplomatic talks to see a stronger Imperial presence in the galaxy that would hopefully put aside the feud that had started between the Imperium's Executor, Darth Zayn, and the former Imperial Coalition's Lord Regent, Darth Naile. Lord Lennistar declined to comment on Lord Naile's disappearance, but stated that in his absence he had taken on the mantle of Lord Imperator and sought to return the galaxy to its former Imperial rule under one banner. Grand Moff Breuth remarked that the two Imperial factions were two halves of the same coin, and expressed happiness that the ceasefire could be a first step to healing the divide caused in the wake of Lord Emperor Rocik's disappearance from the galaxy at large."

Splash of the Galaxy: Imperial Coalition vs. True Imperium
A cheerful jingle of heavily autotuned and pitch adjusted bantha grunts plays, as a flashy logo comes up on the screen: <[ * . * A Splash of Galaxy * . * ]> "Hey there, folks! Wett Dlakta here. We had a pretty heated debate happen not long ago, hopefully providing some insight in the troubled times we're in right now. What is the situation between The Imperial Coalition and The True Imperium? Who is responsible? What is the solution? Let's see and find out." Groovy techno beats of gliz fades in as background music as the show recap plays: We had a member of the imperial coalition raise concerns regarding an assault carried on in their space. What does The True Imperium has to say on the matter? Representing them, we talked to Grand Moff Breuth and Chieke. Regarding the matter, they said that war is war, and casualties are inevitable. That being said, they were not aware of the incident and are willing to accomodate any damages incurred to the victim. Miss Maci responded with accusations that events such as this one is just a display of tactics adopted by The True Imperium- a 'with us or die' approach. After a brief debate, Miss Maci proposes the surrender of Imperium's Grand Moff Breuth for the crimes he has caused to remedy the situation between the two imperial factions. Breuth was quick to respond to that: Him being the first one to reach out after the split to heal the separation, and receiving truce offer rejections once Imperium space started being taken over, sees this as mere sibling squabble. He wishes nothing more than to reunite the empire towards a common cause. A veteran empire official named Chieke gives his perspective: The foundations of what makes the empire great is what keeps the splinter factions separated; Pride and honor, until the end. Until we see beyond that, little can be done to remedy the situation. Finally, both sides were asked where they see themselves when the conflict is over. Surprisingly, both sides gave a similar answer: Serving the one and great union of the empire as a whole. Will that ever happen? Or will things go out of control? "There you have it, folks. Hope seeing the personalities behind the conflict made the whole thing a little easier to endure. Until next time!" The show's logo <[ * . * A Splash of Galaxy * . * ]> once agains scrolls through before the recording ends.
