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!

Alethia Zitan, Senator of Coruscant, Retires
After a very lengthy service to the Republic, both as Scientist, Senator of Coruscant and finally Vice Chancellor, it is with the utmost sadness that the office of Alethia Ziton has announced her abrupt and sudden retirement, citing a severe incapacitating health condition. Aide's to Alethia have confirmed that she may return to the galactic scene in time, but that time is needed to focus on healing and that she cannot devote the necessary time to the Republic and citizens that she so loves. When holo'd for questioning, this is the Senator's response "I'd like to thank you all for working with me, for loving me and loving this Republic with me. I've developed a severe condition of the stomach and will be retiring, effective immediately. My doctor requires me to take some time off working so that I can attempt to recover. It breaks my heart to leave like this, but it's the only way I can for now. May the Force be with you."

Tywen Carr Issues Statement Regarding Nal Hutta
A dark haired man wearing green and white armor recognized as CorSec Director Tywen Carr by the prompter stands before a lectern at the Corellian Government Building, flanked by men and women dressed in Corellian Security armor. "Today is a new beginning. For our people and more importantly our sister planet of Nal Hutta. Today we see the forces of chaos and malcontent disbanded so that we may forge a path to a brighter tomorrow." The armor clad man sets his hands against the lectern. "I take no pleasure in the steps we had to take. They were necessary ones, but the necessary path is not always one paved with good feelings. Today I announce the disbandment of The Hutt Clans and the extended umbrella of Corellian Security Force. We will not stand idly by while sentients such as these work to destabilize governments. While they produce spice such as Carsa-B that threaten our families. While they seek to undermine the rightful Order that gives our people peace of mind."

The revamped newbie academy
This should have been posted months ago, but better late than never, right?! Years and years of area changes, "quick" "fixes", additions, and subtractions left the old academy a jumbled, bloated mess. I spent a good amount of time in the fall interviewing new and veteran players alike about their newbie academy experiences: what works, what didn't, what pissed people off, what questions the RPC got. I spent time looking at syslogs to see where new players disconnected/gave up. We had good conversations in the #newbiehelp Discord room. All that lead to me mapping out what a better academy would look like. Newbies and vets alike worked through plans in the #newbiehelp room with me, then I got to work. The area file was SO bloated, I decided early on it would need to be rebuilt room by room, mob by mob, and ended up cutting the area file size by about 1/3. The new academy should be a streamlined experience for LOTJ newbies. Navigating it should be more straightforward, the rooms should more concisely convey important information, and it should answer some of the more common questions we get on OOC and RPC. The project went live at the start of this timeline, and I recently added a bunch of new updates, hence this change getting posted now. This includes a revamped Banvhar Station. Pre-existing quests have been polished up to make things more coherent, a cargo bay quest aera has been added, and in general, it's now more in line with how quests work in the game. Direct feedback to Walldo. New players in particular, your perspective is extremely valuable. Please let me know what you think about the new academy, what's confusing, what you'd like to see added, etc. Let's keep making it better.
