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!

"Resistance" Faction Declares War on Raiders
A group calling itself the "Alien Resistance Faction" has claimed responsibility for the string of protests and attacks on the Raider worlds over the past couple of weeks. Early yesterday, the group made a bigger entrance as it arrived in salvaged cruisers and began a blockade of Kashyyyk, claiming to "liberate" the world from Raider oppression. After an intense battle, the forces were scuttled as the Raider fleet arrived en masse. After the encounter, Lord Emperor Maldiv Rocik had this to say: "Finally, Galaxy, we can put a face on the terrorist organization that is responsible for inciting violence across the Galaxy these past few days. Alien Resistance Force, I advise you to de-arm, lay down your weapons, and evacuate to the far corners of the rim. You condemn yourself to certain failure, just like the Republic and the Jedi before you, but, if it's war you want...so be it. Prepare to meet your death."

Deregrassio Casino Firebombed!
After a string of chaotic protests that were ruthlessly put down by the Lord Emperor Maldiv Rocik's forces across three worlds, residents of Wroona were awakened late this evening to the sound of explosions as Deregrassio Casino was firebombed by yet another group of protesters. Luckily, the casino was mostly empty so there were no casaulties and very minor injuries. Following the firebombing, the protesters took to the streets of Wroona continuing their rioting and looting.

Recent Changes

EoE Canceled
Due to lack of staffing, the EoE for era 1 has been canceled for the time being. I have no idea when it will be rescheduled or if it will happen at all which unfortunately means the start of era 2 will be delayed until then. I apologize for any inconveniences this is going to cause you guys, but there is a lot of work to be done that I just cannot do myself for various reasons. All I can ask is that you remain patient and hold tight, I will keep working on what I can so that we can properly transition the era. Claudius

Professor Lalund
Professor Lalund has been adjusted to now train all of your stats to their max pending Gathorn's code fix to put an end to stat training. Happy stat training.
