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!

Collapse of an Empire
After continued assault from the Morgukai Droids and Republican Military, the remaining Sith Empire governmental and military forces pinned on Korriban have begun to buckle from the pressure. In-fighting and chaos has gripped the lower levels of government on Korriban as the Sith'ari and his leadership cadre inexplicably removed themselves from the chain without warning. Rumor has it that the Sith'ari has deemed the Imperial experiment a failure, and has left it to its fate. The Sith'ari had led the Sith from squabbling tribes to a galactic government of power. What will happen to the Sith now that they are forced to integrate with the rest of the galaxy; not as imperial rulers, but as just another group of sentients?

Iris Fel Elected Senator of Ithor
Several bright bursts of celebratory fireworks in an early evening sky illuminate the holoscreen for a moment before the cameras pan down to the exterior of Science Plaza on Ithor. A shorter tanned human female in her mid-twenties with blonde hair stands behind a durasteel podium engraved with the crest of the Galactic Republic. The drone of conversation begins to fall away, the milling crowd quieting with anticipation as the woman stands silent, staring forward. After roughly thirty seconds, she breaks into a smile and begins speaking, her voice a pleasant mezzo. "My people of Ithor. It gives me great pleasure to inform you that I've been elected as your Senatorial representative." A low buzz cuts through the crowd but she continues. "From my long term as a representative Aide for the Senate, to the harrowing times spent during the brief war in which the Sith eventually capitulated, I have been studying and preparing for this job. The Republican senate has been revitalized and we are rolling out many new initiatives. As former Chancellor Krur Fiade has now officially retired, I hope to help lead us to the brightest future that can be managed. With some of the unstable elements of the Sith Empire now eliminated, we hope to forge a more prosperous cooperation with the more diplomatically aligned, tractable remainder. Thank you for your attention, and may the Force be with us all. No questions at this time." She smiles and turns to depart, the holo fading away to nothing.

Whiphid/Gamos
Because these are the two dumbest races on here that can only speak three words, I added a new phrase so you slack-jawed inbred idiots can enter Ajunta Pall's tomb. The rest of you non-3 word limited geniuses can still get in the same way. Claudius

Wandering ghosts of Korriban
Keen adventurers can now trade a certain item for a particular relic from our local wandering ghost of Korriban. (should have done this months ago but I'm lazy, enjoy) Claudius
