Vote For RPC
It’s time to vote!
The RPC, or Role Play Council, is a unique feature of Legends of the Jedi. Elected by the playerbase, the RPC are here to serve as a resource to the players. The primary duty is to serve as a method for players to appeal a death based on a violation of the rules of LotJ, however, they are are also here to answer any questions about LotJ you might have.
Voting will close at 11:45pm EST on 20 December.
You must be logged in to vote!
Serving on the RPC this past term has given me a lot of insight into how the process works, and the painstaking effort that goes into restore cases on the part of the RPC. I rather enjoyed it, even so much as to write up a ‘how to’ that I hope makes it onto the site in the future. So I’d like to run again and maybe even get to judge my first case! (Don’t everyone perm and restore at once now…one at a time please…)
Every day pretty much, roughly 12 – 12 EST time. (My timezone is close to there.)
Hey all, I’ve been here for many years. Looking to help out some way and give back to the community and thought I would give RPC a try. I’ve had my share of restores and denies and can give a fair judgement on cases. I’m pretty familiar with the rules.I like helping out IC and OOC where I can with new players, and showing them how fun this game can be.
Sun – Thurs 6-11 pm EST Fri – Sat Varies, at least an hour.
So, here goes. I’ve been pretty consistently RPC lately, and I think that goes a long way to trusting me with your RPC cases. I’ve judged them either way, both restore and deny, and have had my own character restored or denied a restore on the other side of the trial. I have a good grasp of the perming rules, what qualifies an illegal perm and what qualifies as a legal perm. I continue to learn a lot and a grow as a player, and I enjoy helping new people. I know I like to mess around on OOC, but I take every case very seriously, as well as the responsibility of RPC seriously. I have had the pleasure of being part of the council with people like Fishy, Odari, Andvari, Bando and more, and have been able to learn quite a bit from how they perceive the rules. I’ve consistently been a good RPC member, and strive to continue to do so. That being said, my usual disclaimer is here; I always have the underlying principle that Zeromus taught me, that while LotJ is an RP game, it is also a PvP game at heart, and Claudius once said to me that if you’re not getting killed, you’re not playing right. So while I will vote restore on a crappy perm, I will never forsake that perming and being permed is a part of the game. It is on both permer and permee to make their cases to the RPC, of either why they permed or why the perm was illegal. I do enjoy being RPC, and I like to think that my track record proves that I know what I’m doing as RPC as well.
I’m on pretty much all the time, US time. What are friends?
Been on RPC a few times, I like to think I’ve mellowed out and learned with time, but probably not! But I can look at facts as a whole, ask questions as I see them, and try and get it all sorted out in a timely manner. I also have mexican jokes of the day for those slow days.
I am on PST, and can be on quite often mostly in the afternoons, evenings, and nights.
Usually I use this text box to mock the concept of over-serious fart sniffing RPC speeches but after a couple terms of being really frustrated by a certain attitude I’m going to type some actually relevant words instead. People who talk a big game about being an RPC who will vote “objectively according to the rules as written~” are either being deliberately disingenuous, or living ten-ish years in the past. Read Help Perm. The rules as written, currently, basically amount to “RPC discretion”. Help Oldperm is dead. There are no boxes to check to arrive at some objective truth about any given case, just the joint discussion and debate of the RPC as they review it. The council don’t always have to agree, honestly it’s usually a bad sign that someone either knowingly executed a trash perm or knowingly submitted a frivolous request when the entire RPC immediately agree. But the council does need to be composed of people with a variety of fields of LotJ experience, a willingness to actively engage in debate in good faith, and with all around good sense in general, because their standards of reasonable behavior are what they’re there to deliver. That’s why it’s important to get lots of people running for RPC, and that’s why it’s important to cast your RPC vote carefully.

US Pacific, around a lot
Applying to make Frump happy. I’ve been playing LOTJ on and off since 2002. Figured I should finally throw my hat into the ring to give back to the player base for all of the fun I’ve had. Woohoo for taking 16 years to fill out an app for the first time.
~8am EST until 10PM EST. I work from home, so I get to leave LOTJ up on the screen often.
I have been RPC several times now, and I absolutely love the role. It opens many opportunities to be the front line for new players, which I absolutely love. It also offers a chance to help the imms enforce the rules by reviewing perm cases and voting whether to reverse the perm, or allow it to stand. So why should you vote for Madelyn for RPC? I am going to review the rules as they are written, and I am going to apply them to the situation before making my decision. It all comes down to two questions: Was a rule broken? Was this perm justified by permer-provided logs? If the first answer is yes, it should be restored. If the second answer is no, it should be restored. Otherwise, perms should stick. If you agree, vote for me. If you don’t, well, RPC will likely be hearing from you sooner or later.
Randomly throughout the day, consistently 6-midnight in the evenings, most weekends – all weekend. CST.
I have a pretty firm grasp of the rules/mechanics though by no means perfect, have very flexible hours and availability, I do my best to answer any newbie questions, and I’m that dork that tells you in their title to read help rules 14. Think of the newbs!
Lately usually available roughly from 4pm EST to 5am EST.
Hello! I’m Thermitelogic. Most of you probably know who I am, but for those of you that don’t- My most notable contributions to the mud are mostly dying often and trying to help the occasional newbie on OOC. The former of those two things lead me to have some first-hand experience with the RPC process and how important and useful it is in keeping pvp on the mud fair and enjoyable. While I don’t have a nice dog picture to link, and I’m not going to promise you free Burritos, pie, or any other food items… I can promise that if elected to RPC, I will look at all sides of a restore case before casting an unbiased vote, and help to keep OOC a reasonably clean and newbie friendly place. If that sounds like something you are looking for in an RPC, then Voting for me probably isn’t a terrible idea. If however you are looking for someone who will vote yes on your frivolous restore requests, or share or abuse IC info, maybe go piss up a rope instead…
I’m usually active for a varying number of hours every day somewhere between 12 PM and 4 AM PST
