My birthday present... those of you who knit would appreciate the amount of work to create a double knit scarf.

Thank you to @Niarra for running her Auction tonight!

Thanks as well to @Maryck, and Ten'joh and Dybzz, in whatever @Handles you're using for adding to the mix and banter.

Sincere appreciation to @Dassalya for some post-Auction role-playing, and for keeping the collective history of our stories alive in continuing role-play. Shout out to @Dassalya as well for continuing to host Jedi Knight as often as schedules allow.

The Force is strong in that one...

I'm considering Saturday, May 25th. This works for me because it's a holiday weekend, but because it's a holiday weekend it may not work for others. Thoughts?

I've tentatively booked off my afternoon/evening of the 25th @Niarra, thank you for firming up your date.

If folks would like the opportunity to auction items of their own again, that's easily done. Or perhaps folks have an old rival they'd like to bring to the arena to duel in a method of their choosing?

What's the good word @blingdenston? Betting? Brawling? Bachelor's Night Out?

Makes me wonder who else might slip onto Phalanx Station incognito? Jedi? Royalty? Red-skinned bastards? Blue-skinned enigmas?

Just a short reply to express interest, and also to thank @Niarra for putting in the effort and giving me a reason to think about SWTOR again.

Captain Jaade is going to save Washington, D.C., even if he has to punch every last one of them to do it...

So a throw-away Event on Yavin 4 used as an excuse to role-play during the Prelude to a new BioWare Event and game update turned into three more Events, with different Players each time, and in some cases, long-lost returning players. (You know who you are.)

I'm not going to try and tag everyone who's attended, but I do want to give a special shout out to my co-conspirator @Dassalya for Events 3 and 4, as she agreed to take on Gamemaster duties so the community could enjoy a different flavour from my usual stew.

Thank you to everyone who attended, dusted off the Outfits and helped us remind everyone how good our community role-play can be when we commit to it.

Obi-Wan: "You don't know that. Even Yoda cannot see their fate."

when you will be tempted by the dark side of the Force."


  • Date: Saturday February 9, 2019
  • Time: 5:00PM P.S.T
  • In-Game Location: Ossus
  • Gamemaster: @Dassalya
  • co-Gamemaster: @recoveringgeek
  • Important: This Event takes place during the Jedi Under Siege storyline.
  • Faction: This is a Republic Faction-only Event.
  • Additional: While Jedi Custodum characters will have a handy tie in if they desire a reason to be on (or on the way to) Ossus, this event is open to all!
@Hawking Shatari, once Jedi Knight turned Diplomat and Explorer, found himself drawn to Ossus as many Jedi have, by news of a lost Jedi Colony full of survivors and hope. His reprieve was short-lived when he found himself facing new problems with old company. Together with the Mirialan Jedi Knight Dassalya Nasadee, Taelios' apprentice and all-around wild card, Anera ( @LVT ), and ornery Tramp Freighter Captain Augustus Jaade, Hawking was tasked to seek out some overdue colonists who went to investigate a crashed starship deep in the treacherous Ossus canyons.

There the quartet found the colonists—and their newly-arrived slaver captors. After rescuing many of the lost colonists, Hawking and company found evidence of logistical support provided to the slavers by the Sith Empire, including coordinates to the very world on which they stood. Knowing the Sith Empire wouldn't be far behind, Hawking escorted the bulk of the colonists back to their homesteads and safety, while Dassalya, Anera, and Captain Jaade scoured the canyons for any stragglers.

Recommended Music: Shuttle Tydirium

But not all is as it seems back at the Jedi colony. Tension lingers in the air with Ossus’ secrecy in question. Captain Nulaa Ulair stirs the pot with her anger-fueled search for survivors of the Tythonian, Twi’lek village of Kalikori. Taelios ( @Lolermelon ) and his Chiss spy-turned-major-domo, @livia, have disappeared as quickly as they arrived. It may be possible that, in the event of an attack, the commander of the independent Wraith Squadron, Caben ( @SivWysan ), and his Jedi sister, Maerin, may be able to help, but what can one squadron do against the potential, Imperial might arrayed against them?

Hawking doesn't have long to decide, for, even as he deliberates, alarms herald an impending attack. As chaos breaks out, an additional, niggling thought beckons at the back of his mind: where are Dassalya, Anera, and Jaade?

Recommended Music: Into The Trap

Hawking knows one thing is for certain. The twin suns are setting on Ossus’ future, and, with them, the likelihood of the colony—or its visitors—escaping unscathed...

Yoda: "Stopped they must be. On this all depends.
Only a fully trained Jedi Knight with the Force as his ally will conquer Vader and his Emperor.
If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did,
you will become an agent of evil".
Obi-Wan: "Patience!"
Luke: "And sacrifice Han and Leia?"
Yoda: "If you honor what they fight for, yes."

Anyone attending this year?

This will be my first time attending Gen Con, very much looking forward to it. I may even look to play in some Star Wars tabletop games to whet my whistle depending on what is being offered.

Events and Occasions / All of Ossus - redux
« on: 01/21/19, 04:36:57 PM »



Date: Wednesday January 23, 2019 - Rescheduled!
Time: 7:00PM P.S.T. - a few hours later give or take
Location: Ossus

This will be a Republic-faction Event in-game on Ossus, so I can make use of Ops Channel for Gamemaster communication. This Event is a sequel to The Cron Adrift No More and occurs just prior to the climatic events in the Jedi Under Seige storyline.

Important: There will be at least one action set-piece using the in-game locations, and one heavy role-play scene.


Traveling in groups, gathering in secret, seeking as one, bands of Jedi survivors and exiles slowly gathered on the Jungle moon of Yavin 4. Formerly home to a secret Alliance base at the height of the war against the Eternal Empire, it was abandoned when the war was won, and evolved into a black market paradise of abandoned military technology and a rich jungle perfect for hiding smuggling operations throughout the System.

Bartering safe passage with an eclectic band of tramp freighter Captains through the dangerous Cron Drift, the wayward Jedi had nearly reached sanctuary when agents of the Sith Empire tracked them down and attacked them on the jungle moon. What started as a dangerous skirmish became a fight for survival due to the sudden appearance of The Fourth Wall, an Imperial warship formerly under the command of a dangerous, unpredictable Dark Lord, now the property of the equally dangerous and unpredictable Taelios Genetech Industries.

The black market was subjected to sudden, ruthless orbital bombardment, causing mercenaries and merchants, smugglers and slavers all racing for their ships, and high orbit. The sudden exodus of so many smaller freighters and transports meant the Republic and Sith Capital fleets converging on Yavin 4 could not easily discern friend from foe.

The smugglers meanwhile escaped into the Cron Drift asteroid field, navigating cold, spinning rocks, and cold-hearted, laser-spitting, slaver ships. Their cargo? Lost Jedi and their families, followers, and fringers. The best pilots survived both, and eventually navigated to the once-lost world of Ossus. The sudden arrival of new refugees from decades of Galactic war and much need fresh supplies gave the Jedi Colony on Ossus hope. The new arrivals were dispersed among the Colony, lending valuable skills and needed manpower.

Jedi Theme: Jedi Steps

Once particular band of Jedi have been sent to the farthest reaches of the Colony, to a series of farms struggling to grow food amidst the ravaged wind-swept craggy canyons of Ossus. These colonists have to survive the inhospitable weather, and the intolerable mutant Geonosians that plague them. These new arrivals are members of the vaunted Jedi Custodum - and their Padawans - discovering their long forgotten allies from the Agri-Corps and the Archives. From the Exploration and Research arms of the once vast Jedi Order. These are not warriors as the Custodum are, though they fight as best they can.

Hanging back in the wings, wondering about their place in all this, are uncertain freighter Captains and their motley crews of gunslingers, mercenaries, and rogue technicians. Augustus Jaade, Captain of the Jaded Dream is one such scoundrel, having agreed to help smuggle the Jedi to Ossus, possibly because of his own checkered past involving the Jedi Knights, or perhaps in spite of it?

Whether to honor the memory of his lost, then found, then lost again daughter who fought alongside the Order, or perhaps due to the time spent in the company of the once-famed Jedi Custodum Grandmaster who found herself a passenger on the Jaded Dream in recent past, no one knows. If the lessons, musings, teachings, and nagging of @Iaera Farworlder affected the Old Man, he'll never tell.

One thing is for damn sure.

There is nowhere to get a good drink on this rock...

Thank you to everyone who has voted.

Players can still cast a vote if they haven't already, though I'm leaning towards Wednesday Jan. 23 so the Jedi players can keep their Thursday night Jedi Event and resume their continuity.

I'll update the Event thread sometime tomorrow to confirm, in case we have any votes later tonight or tomorrow that overwhelmingly push the consensus to next weekend.

If we went with a Sunday I might be able to bring some Wraiths along as well

@SivWysan - If that means additional Players, please invite them to participate in the Poll if they are interested in attending so we have an accurate head count.

Thank you.
