Events and Occasions / All of Ossus - redux
« on: Today at 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...

Jaade's Theme: End Title

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.

This Poll is to reschedule the All of Ossus Event.

You can vote multiple times. Please be honest about your schedule and commitments. I'd like to reschedule this soon, so other players can use it as a springboard for further role-play.

Thank you.

I posted this prematurely, and didn't allow for multiple voting. I can't edit the Poll options. I'll repost.

I'm canceling the Event tonight. I'm going to post a Poll for the next 7-10 days, so we can pick some dates and hopefully everyone can rearrange their schedules and get healthy!

The entire point of the Event was to get as many of us in-game that are keen to play. I'm hoping everyone agrees.

I'm posting this on my phone. I only chose this Thursday as I knew most Jedi players would be available, and I'm never free Thursday night normally.

I'm happy to postpone and host on a weekend night if we want to run a Poll for the next week or so?

I'm leaving work now, should we postpone then?

Just a reminder, start time approximately 7:00PM P.S.T. Send a shout out to your favourite player who hasn't registered or doesn't visit the site weekly anymore.

Let me know if anyone has any last-minute questions.

Would love to join in but I won’t have gotten the new content out of the way before joining in, got a fair bit of catching up to do.

@Hawking, how far back are you?

Can you blitz the remaining story content before the 17th?

Just a weekend bump for anyone still lurking or undecided about their choice of character.  Hoping to encourage as many of you to join us,  since there is common sentiment that we're all craving some role-play,  however the first step is committing your time.

'Geek, is there a feasible spot in the plot you're running for someone to play a Jedi or scientist from the Ossus colony? I've got other options I can still turn to, but that idea has piqued my curiosity.

Yes, completely.

You can send me a PM @Niarra if you want to discuss some details.

Geek's event is set for the 17th, not this week. Are we pushing this back two/three weeks, then? I've been looking forward to some Jedi debate around Ossus, I won't lie, but given the dearth of community events I totally understand wanting to coordinate.

Thank you for the inclusion @Dassalya. I am sorry for the delay @Niarra, unfortunately my weekly tabletop night is always Thursday night, so I can never attend the weekly Jedi role-play. I have a rare break on the 17th, so I wanted to throw the Event up right away in the hopes everyone would have time to attend.

I didn't anticipate everyone already role-playing post-Ossus, however I hoped an Ossus-themed adventure would help spur some stories along.

I'll definitely attend! Not sure what character I'll bring, as most of my Jedi characters have undergone other RP or plotting around the assumption that they are in the post Ossus climax timeline,

I suppose my question is, have you already role-played your Mains getting to Ossus and did that occur before the Imperial invasion and subsequent evacuation?

This Event will be a chance to role-play on the eve of that Expansion. Nothing that happens in my Event should disrupt other role-play surrounding Ossus. It does provide a story vehicle to get you there, as I assume the Custodum is late to the party, given their role actually fighting the Sith Empire.

Wookiepedia puts the Colony having existed for six years prior to this Expansion, so in- character we're all discovering this secret in the 11th hour.
