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!

Alderaanian Royal Family Celebrates Prince's Birthday
The Alderaanian Royal family is celebrating the sixteenth birthday of Prince Alrish today. As the oldest and only surviving child of King Richart Venst, Prince Alrish is next in line to become the King of Alderaan. In a rare public appearance, King Richart gave a small speech praising his only child's growth and development while also praising the continued independence of the Alderaan. "People of Alderaan, as you know a great tragedy struck my family nearly two decades ago when my children and first wife were killed in a senseless act of terrorism...but here we are, once again open to the galaxy at large, flourishing and prospering. Today is my son's sixteenth birthday and I want to wish him well, for one day, it will be he who stands here speaking to you. It is my family's promise and duty, to ensure the continued independence of Alderaan amidst these new times within the galaxy! As long as the bloodline of the Venst's continues, Alderaan shall forever be sovereign and independent!" Prince Alrish made a brief appearance to greet the royal houses and the crowd that gathered to celebrate his birthday. Currently, Prince Alrish is under tutelage by noted professor Carst Glein who has been a tutor to the royal family for nearly fifty years.

The Inquisition
A symphony of horns swell into a conservative-yet-catchy tune as an announcer begins a voice-over, "And now..your GNI Nightly News with Sebastian NewFall!" The camera dips down from high above and begins to focus in on a news desk. The lights come up, revealing a tan human with impeccable features. He beams a bright, pearly smile as the music concludes in a flourish. "Good evening! Our top story tonight:" The camera flicks to a birds-eye view of houses in Menari Heights. Various troopers in white-paneled uniforms storm into buildings, dragging occupants kicking and screaming out of their homes. "Officials with the Galactic Empire confirm to us tonight of an edict from the Lord Emperor to begin an Inquisition into the disappearance of the Jedi Order immediately following the fall of the Galactic Republic over 5 years ago. Citizens should be advised that all those that aid and abet the Jedi, old or new, in any way, shape, or form will be met with the harshest.." As one of the field interviews becomes more heated, a figure in black robes seemingly appears out of the night, raising a light sword high above his head and beginning to arc it down towards a family of four. The view quickly cuts back to the newsman, his face slack-jawed as he looks off-camera. He suddenly snaps out of it, shuffling some papers absent-mindedly and saying, sheepishly, "W...We'll be right back..."

Recent Changes

Restring and Crafted Item Tweaks
* Added a success line to when you use restring to change the name of an item. * Clarified error messages to players to explain why they can't restring a piece of armor/container. * FOr WORN_ABOUT armor, examine now shows what the armor will change your appearance to. * For other armor/containers that have been restrung, examine will show what the item's original appearance was. * Refactored some things under the hood for restring. This does mean everyone can re-restring their items if they so choose. Go ahead if you want. * Added RESTRUNG and NORESTRING flags. I previously went about this in a dumb way. * Makecontainer and Makespice now correctly apply the CRAFTED flag to the item made using these two skills. * Shops will now display Restrung: before the name of an item if the item has been restrung to prevent scamming.
