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!

Tensions Increase on Nal Hutta
[Bilbousa GNI Bureau] In recent days, activity has only increased as external interests across the galaxy look for ways to sway the tensions simmering among Nal Hutta's populace to their favor. Just hours ago, an unofficial news agency provided the following footage: [A recording plays...] The broadcast opens up the swamps of Nal Hutta and the tall towers standing over the city. The holo-camera pans over the spaceport to show Hutt citizens and police officers as usual, but in addition to this are an increased number of Battle Droids and Droidekas seemingly guarding the premises, with soldiers patrolling the streets, in particular the areas closer to the gates leading out of the city. Rumors pertaining to the swamplands have been circulating around the streets, but beyond that nothing as of yet has been confirmed to explain the sudden increased presence of the Trade Federation. Visitors to and from Nal Hutta are recommended to comply with all local laws laid down by the Hutt Clans. [The live feed resumes...] Although no official statements have been made by either government, locals have noted a sharp increase in the number of Trade Federation's droids in and near Bilbousa City and the Republic's clone forces in the Evocii camps. Sources suggest that the local factions supported by these two governments have received an approximately equal amount of aid so far. Anonymous organizers of the continued neutrality movement, however, have struggled to compete with the logistical muscle of these much larger governments, estimating that contributors have provided only a third of what the other factions have received. Earlier today, a tense meeting of multiple representatives of both the Republic and the Trade Federation was seen near the Evocii camp, although it ended peacefully. As more troops arrive, it seems only a matter of time before the situation spins out of control. Locals are pleading with the Hutt councils to reach a decision to defuse the situation soon, but the traditionally fractious clans show no signs of coming to consensus soon.

Factions on Nal Hutta Seeking Assistance
[Bilbousa GNI Bureau] The Bilbousa spaceport has been experiencing record traffic delays today as external interest in the planet's affairs escalates. All three factions on the planet have begun mobilizing in an ad-hoc contest to demonstrate logistical and political clout. The &kTrade Federation&k has sent a diplomat to the &kAnjiliac Kajidic Stronghold&k to serve as a liason and distribute gifts to Hutt clan leaders. The &kEvocii&k have begun working with the &kGalactic Republic&k to train and equip their own forces, with assistance needed in the Evocii &kcamps outside of the city&k. Meanwhile, the &kBesadii Kajidic&k has emerged as the most vocal proponent of &kcontinued neutrality&k in the aftermath of recent well-organized protests and are calling for any like-minded individuals to assist inside their stronghold. With this level of activity, it is only a matter of time before the situation escalates further. GNI will continue our live reporting on the events.
