Jedi Missions S4 Episode 1

When: 7:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time (server time), Friday July 24 (Saturday morning for Australia)
Where: In-game. Strongholds! Easy!

The list is being silly - for clarity the initial 4 signups are: Ran-del, Sha'ira, Anotai, Armeria.

At long last, Jedi Missions return in their classic format! I apologise for the short notice on the initial event, but I've given up on trying to schedule these in advance - I just can't make it play nice with my own schedule right now.

As many of you have probably noticed, I had some harsh words to say about certain plot themes. Well, I am a firm believer that if you're going to complain about something, you should be able to back it up with a better solution. Jedi Missions were originally a solution to the problem of 'There's nothing interesting for a Jedi to do,' and so I feel some responsibility to see that they return.

For those not familiar with them, they are casual action-adventure roleplay events for Jedi characters. While I like being inclusive and welcoming everyone aboard, please be aware that these are Jedi events (it's in the title!) - they are strictly intended to allow people to stretch their Jedi's legs with the Force, lightsabers, and the Jedi Way. They feature combat encounters, traps, hazards, dastardly villains, the occasional yawning chasm/bottomless pit, explosives, explosions, exploding kamikaze droids, and even a little investigating and diplomacy! There are no dice or traits or codified rules - you are encouraged to play your character how you want. If goons are shooting blasters at you, you can deflect them, or you can take a hit - it's all up to what you want to play. The only exceptions are certain climactic scenes involving particularly dangerous scenarios, in which I may underline the inherent danger with greater threats of destruction or doom!

New to this season is a strict 4-person limit per episode. The episodes are self-contained, like an episode of an action-adventure TV show, so there's no harm in sitting out for an episode. Sign-ups are first-come-first-serve, though in future installments I may ask that those who've already gotten to go cede their spot to someone who hasn't, depending on demand. In the past I tried to run way too many people at once, and the events suffered for it. With less people, I can better focus on each Jedi's personal stake in the mission.

An episode usually takes a couple of hours. They are quick, casual, no-stress events. Hop in, play your character like any other RP situation, no problemo! As always, you do not need to be a member of Jedi Custodum - only a Jedi of some variety or another.

It's entirely optional, but if you wish, you may post here (if you are signing up) your character's Strength & Weakness. This will allow me to better tailor the adventure to your character, and if it's appropriate, maybe slip in an interesting encounter unique to your character!

And just so there's no belly-aching, fair warning in advance: I will give a 5-10 minute grace period after 7 PM server (on the dot!) in case someone is running late. After that, the spot is forfeit and I'll give it to the next alternate in line if one is waiting. So if you show up at 7:11 PM, sorry, but there will be future events to take part in!

In the case that I am running late, well, the Sith win. gg.

Great to hear these still happening!  Hope I can make one in the future. 

Also be awesome, if any have time for someone to post a quick report/synopsis after.  Love opportunities to hook my writing into events that have happened and feel more connected in our RP.  The new Jedi Field Reports might be a good place if anyone has interst.

I had a blast, really appreciate the re-invite after real life carried me out of game. Thank you very much, wonderful GMing, @Iaera , loved the snark between Ran-del and Sha'ira, too. You two were sassy princesses.
