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!

Death Watch Promises Mandalorian "Peace"
As the people of Mandalore attempt to recover from the devastating blows dealt to them by an unknown threat, a note was found tacked to the stature of Mandalore the First. The note read as follows: Years of misguided outsider influence have left Mandalorians suckling at the teat of foreigners who have no respect for the Mandalorian way. Be it the Republic, Sith or even the automatons of the Morgukai, Mandalorians were deprived of their true nature...their true purpose. That, my friends, has come to a swift end. From now on, Mandalore will be ruled by the Death Watch. We will return Mandalorian culture to it's true nature and will swiftly put down any and all who stand in our way. We will bring this galaxy Mandalorian "peace".

Oyu'baat Massacre
Following the savage attacks on Concordia, a meeting was called between the leaders of all the Mandalorian factions to investigate the incident. The meeting, which took place at Oyu'baat, was nearing it's conclusion when the loud sound automatic gunfire was heard from the second floor. Patrons on the lower level rushed to the second floor meeting rooms where they discovered the bloodied corpses of the faction leaders along with members of their entourage. No evidence or discernible traces could be found on the scene other than the use of high-grade military weaponry. With the death of the faction heads, a vacuum of power has been created in the Mandalore System leaving many of the residents wondering what will happen next...

The Battle of Mandalore
This Sunday an event that will determine the fate of Mandalore will take place at 1PM PST (4PM EST). Given the nature of Mandalorian culture, this event will be LIVE FIRE meaning that actual death is a possibility. Let me repeat that: Permadeath is a possibility in this event. There will be an active tracker of certain in game turn-in objects that will be factored into the final result of the event. Rewards will be given out based on participation.

New players, accounts, the website, and email
A quirk of our website CMS is that an email address needs to be associated before an account can log in. This is a recurring point of confusion for new players. To smooth things along, new players making an account will receive a message about needing to associate in order to log in. We've also updated a line here and there to explain this.
