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!

Empire Slaughters Wroonian Orphans In Response to Bombing
The Imperial Cog spins on a black screen, the music absent in the sounds of distant blaster fire. "Today the Militia chose to bombard the Wroonian Capitol building, claiming to wage war on the Empire while evacuating what they deemed 'innocent citizens'." An image of a smoking Imperial official in front of the capitol building appears on the screen. "This is the price they have paid for their terrorist acts against the Imperial regime." The image changes to Imperial Stormtroopers, moving as one behind a masked being in a sealed environment suit. Their blasters open fire on the streets adjacent to the smoking capital building, with wailing screams echoing all around. Joining the group is an Imperial Royal Guard, who tears off the head of an orphan, while the rest of the orphans run away screaming. They don't make it far as the Stormtroopers gun them down in the streets with deadly precision. A crimson blade flashes from the masked being as she cuts down citizens who jump in front of the orphans, further adding to the pile of smoking bodies lining the streets. "For every terrorist act the Militia commits to this day, the Empire will respond in kind. The future of the 'innocent' is in their hands."

Militia Bombs Wroona, Places Empire on "Notice"
A shocking act of terror was perpetrated against the citizens of Wroona as a terrorist attack rocked the the government building. Security camera footage appears to show a Lannik male running towards the building with a large satchel minutes before the bombing. Following the bombing, Orwen of Drolek's Militia took responsibility for the bombing, stating that they were placing the Empire on notice. While the Militia initially claimed no citizens were harmed, the local hospital reported at least one Imperial official was found dead after the bombing.
