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!

Senator Kisari Steps Down
A press release was received by the GNI news desk this evening direct from the Senator of Coruscant's office. Stating that although he is proud of what the New Republic has accomplished to date, Senator Kisari has decided that public office is no longer the best option available to him, and will be stepping down. Following this announcement, the Coruscant electorate office is encouraging any interested parties to begin campaigning for the Senatorial seat.

Ithor elects Velsa Illean to the New Republic Senate
Trumpets sound through the distance as streamers and confetti fly through the expanse of the herdship Cloud Mother. Thousands of Ithorians stand before a raised platform, talking excitedly amongst themselves before a female Ithorian steps from behind a curtain and into view. Thunderous applause and cheers greet her arrival, silenced by a raised hand and a warm gleam in the Ithorians eyes as she draws in a deep breath to speak. "People of Ithor," her melodic voice calls out, easily carrying across the masses as she looks lovingly over those gathered, "Friends of the Republic, it is my greatest honor to stand before you today and receive such warmth and joy. I, Velsa Illean, am proud to become your next Senator! Ithor, as so many other worlds has, suffered greatly in the past few years. From rule by the iron hand of the Morgukai to a plague upon the galaxy itself. Mother Jungle herself was caught in the horrid disaster that was the invasion and infection of her children, and I know I speak for all when I say we weep for what was done to her." An eerie, mournful silence falls over the crowd, many watching the woman with remorse and sorrow. -- "But Mother Jungle is strong, Her Children are strong! For every mark upon Her she will blossom again twice over! For every one of us lost we will find two new brothers and sisters to nurture and care for. Let us not dwell upon the loss of life, let us not hold on to sorrow and regret. We must rise above that which has harmed us, we must take the teachings of Mother Jungle and become twice as strong as we were before, twice as joyful, twice as caring for all those around us. It is with this sentiment that I stand before you no longer as the wanderer between herdships that I was before, spreading joy and friendship to all whom I met, but instead as someone you, the people of ithor, have chosen to aid not only in our own recovery but the galaxy itself! We will stand tall amongst those who can not! We will help this galaxy regrow from war and plague! We will see two seeds planted for every one taken and see life blossom again where it was thought lost! I stand now, in acceptance of your will to name me Senator and I will serve you with every fiber of my being. But above all else, above every individual, We are Ithor!" The camera sweeps away as thunderous applause once again erupts from those present, leaving the image of a happy Ithorian woman raising a hand to wave to those watching from afar before cutting out.

As we look toward finding ways to make planet management less onerous, we're experimenting with a few concepts to help smooth out this process. Starting with divorcing SETLEADER from the Diplomacy skilltree. For now, it has been set to level 1 in the Diplomacy Skillset to testdrive it out.

Coruscant demands Representation; Apply to Become a Senator!
Hey there! Coruscant needs YOU! The most densely-populated planet in the galaxy needs a pair of steady hands, tentacles, or whatever on the governing stick! This planet has it all: packages, an arena, and a sick plaza for people to chill in. And it could be yours for the low, low price of a well-written application to the LotJ website. Also, * Yes, your Senator must be in The New Republic clan. * Yes, they can be any race that you want. * They may be a new or existing character. * You should provide a clear moral path for the character in your app.
