Event is penciled in for the 28th, assuming that date still works well for everyone. Hope to see people there! :)

@Auryn @Jaydek - Thank you so much for creating and hosting the gala! That was a super fun experience, both making the costumes for it, and attending. It was one of the chillest and friendliest RPs I've been to in a while, and also produced lots of wonderful character moments. I'm glad that I could come even if I was a little late! It will be nice to follow up on some of the character interactions and meetings down the line as well. And a rare opportunity to put my Mando in something prettier than armor. An awesome evening overall!

I love, love, love your art, a lot. I think I've said this before, but it's worth saying again. Your lines are all so expressive and playful, and you do a great job with poses and expressions.

Adeliey look so happy to be in her gala outfit! And the tattoo is delightful every time haha. I also love how you aged/de-aged Doz's face. That's a difficult thing for most artists to do (know I have trouble with it), so it's totally worth noting.

When: Right now I am planning on Wednesday, March 26th, at 6:30 PST. If that doesn't work for attendees, please let me know in the thread!

Just double-checking on the date, since comparing to the calendar seems a little off. If it's Wednesday March 28th I can probably make it, but if it's Monday March 26th I probably can't. Might be a little late as 6:30 PST can sometimes catch the end of the work day depending on the needs of any given day, but I imagine things will go long so worst case scenario I'm sure there'll still be time to hop in.

This is what I get for planning with a fever...

The 28th works! I had meant the 26th, but I'd rather everyone who's interested be able to attend, so if nobody has an issue with Wednesday, we can switch to that. :)

We've challenged ourselves in battle, mourned the dead, and survived together as Mando'ade... Now we finally have a chance to rest, and celebrate our places in eternity! Mando players, gather together for the last installment of the seasonal celebrations, this one focused on spring, rebirth, and eternity.

Who: Mandos and friends of Mandos! You will need an Impside toon for this event, so make your clones now if you plan on bringing a Pub character.

What: A celebration of springtime, renewal, rebirth, and the honored dead. The last in my series of Mando festival events.

When: Right now I am planning on Wednesday, March 26th, at 6:30 PST. If that doesn't work for attendees, please let me know in the thread!

Where: Galaar Karyai's Guild SH, top balcony.

What to expect: Drinking, feasting, dancing, honoring couples and children if any are around, a lot of tihaar, and the telling of heroic stories if anyone has ones in mind. This is looser in structure than the other festivals, so show up and enjoy! There is a small risk of mauling, but hey, what's a Mando festival without potential for violent games? And as always, Urziya will do some storytelling from clan myth and history.

New update! Some items were removed because I either found them affordably or no longer needed them. Here's the current pieces I'm looking for at higher priority:
  • Rohlan Dyre's Armor (specifically Rohlan Dyre's Boots)
  • Trophy Hunter Mask
  • Series 808 Cybernetic Armor (specifically Series 808 Hands)
  • Ancient Infernal Armor (specifically Ancient Infernal chest)

Okay so, as I see it, there are two main problems here:

1. Mondays aren't good for people. Monday was, at the start of this, voted to be overwhelmingly the best day to host it on. If that's changed, I need people to post and tell me what days work for you and what times. If there aren't enough responses to give a good idea of consensus, we'll stick with Monday.

2. People have trouble coming up with ideas for the night if I'm not there. If that's a case, I have an easy solution:

     Step 1: Pick a spot from the list below by putting the list through Random Picker. You now have your location.

Rishi - South Beach Party: Beach Party! Take off your boots, kick around in the water, and enjoy the beaches of Rishi.
Rishi - Blaster's Path Cantina: Cantina night at the classic Blaster's Path Cantina. Enjoy the music and drinks and grungy ambiance. Bar brawls encouraged!
Rishi - Old City Boardwalk: Part marketplace, part hangout, part street cafe, the tropical boardwalk has something for everyone.
Rishi - Gorge Hollow Barbeque: Picnic on tropical grasses and under sunny palms! Like the beach party, but a different location.
Rishi - Bootlegger's Marketplace: Tour the market squares of Rishi, going stall to stall and seeing what the merchants have to offer. A market with no NPCs required.
Rishi - Coastal Slums Market: Impromptu market under the docks, with no rules or interference. Shady black market characters required to buy and sell wares and intel.
Rishi - Inlet Slums Dock Show: Ship auction on the docks. Check out the merchandise, haggle for starships and starship parts, and enjoy seeing the snazzy rides.
Rishi - Inlet Slums Junker's Brawl: Bring your brawlers and sharpshooters to the waste pits of the Inlet Slums for an unglamorous, but profitable, fighting arena.
Rishi - Trader's Causeway Speeder Races: Gather above and beneath the northwest corner of the Trader's causeway to compete in and watch speeder racing!
Rishi - Warehouse Rave: Mix business and pleasure at the Old City warehouse cantina. Drink, dance on the docks, and deal business in back rooms.

     Step 2: Generate a simple plot using The Writer's Plot Generator or Random Plot Generator. You now have the basic sketch or focus for an event.

     Step 3: Go "I'm heading to Indie Night! Come join me!" in the OOC channels.

That said, neither of the above problems explain why people only come when I'm there to start the event. They explain why a few people who might not be interested otherwise haven't been going, but not why people who do come otherwise don't start something up if I'm online at, say, 7:30 instead of 6:30. That's the part that has me scratching my head. Dancer's and Jedi Night still start even if the 'hosts' aren't online, so I don't quite get why this one is the exception. If you guys want to talk about your plots, you have to actually go and talk about your plots. If it's an issue of lacking a focus, you can use the random generators up above.

A War Room situation still requires more than one person coming up with ideas and focuses each week. The problem is that if I'm not there nobody comes. If you feel it lacks focus, and want focus, then more people will need to step up and go "Hey how about we dicuss X topic tonight?" or "How about we do this thing tonight?"

Part of the point of Indie Night was to inject life into the Indie community again, so that there would be people making connections, telling stories, striking ideas to branch off of. Like a Meet and Greet for independent characters. As far as I know there aren't really stories happening to talk about, so if I'm wrong, let me know by claiming a night for your plotline!

The other problem with a War Room scenario is that by it's very nature, independent RP doesn't lend itself to, well... honesty. If you're a thief, you don't tell random people your thieving plans. If you're a bounty hunter, you don't announce to the competition who you're going after. So I don't think a War Room scenario exactly works for the theme.

Still need to know what days you all are most able to come!

General gist of replies is "We want adventure and not free-form RP" but... Unless other people are willing to step up and run things, that isn't going to happen. I can't come up with some new adventures and run it every single week. That's too much work and too much energy. The loose structure exists for the reason of making sure this event can happen every week, since people aren't exactly stepping up to run events for it.

And we aren't going to use a SH. That was the biggest problem with the first time we tried to hold this. Because there weren't people to do invites across both factions, people physically were not able to come to the SH every week. It's open world because we wanted the area to be easily accessible and to be available even when we didn't have active hosts on every faction.

I am not going to be able to come up with some adventure every single week to run for people, full stop. I'm already running enough adventures. If Mondays are a problem we can fix that, though. What I need to know from all of you is if you are interested and willing to come, what days and times work best for you?

@Mei - Good to hear it! I think I'll make a better point of clarifying the time in each of my update posts on this thread each week. That way it's fresh in people's minds!

@Ash - Sorry to hear that. :( If Mondays do not work for people, is there a night that would work better?

@Karmic - Actually, the night isn't just a cantina night. See the list at the start of the thread. Each location has a different theme and a story hook to go alongside it. There are only a handful of actual 'cantina' type scenarios, the others are market squares, fighting arenas, speeder races, etc.

If it's just an issue of people calling out in the chat, then you guys can help with that! Do you want to see Indie Night continue to exist? Then just log in and shout out "I'm heading to Rishi! Come join me for some RP if you want to!" at event start. If people are really struggling to gather RP themselves, then would anyone like to volunteer to do that on a regular basis?

Not technically a patch note, but I just noticed these Conquest changes on the DevTracker that are exciting.
  • "Completing objectives will now award credits, experience points, and Command Experience in addition to their Conquest points."
  • "On the Guild Conquest front, we have gone even further on changes. We have untied the Guild rewards from the Conquest leaderboards, with the exception of the Guild in first place as they will still receive the Conqueror title and planetary bonuses."
  • Can't find a perfect quote for this, but they're making it so what planet you're camped out over makes your threshold for Conquest completion different, so you can choose to go for small, medium, or high challenges based on what you think you'll be able to accomplish as a guild.
It looks like this is a solution for the merge making leaderboards pretty impossible for most of the community. Awesome!

Hey guys, so... The entire point of this event being open world is so that RP can happen whether or not I am there to organize it. It doesn't need an organizer, because it's not in a SH. Consistently, every time I'm late or not able to go, it just doesn't happen. But I know when I'm around to organize things, we get a pretty decent crowd. I feel like that means there's still interest, so I'm scratching my head figuring out why people consistently do not come if I'm not there. Such was that case today: I was an hour late, and arrived to find nobody around.

I am at Rishi right now and ready to RP, but it's making me wonder what's going on here...

Are people not interested in this event?
What's preventing people from coming and RPing on their own?
Is it an issue with not having clear directions to locations?
Is it an issue with the planet itself?
Are people just not interested in their independent characters?
Is the day a bad one for people?
Is there any way I can clarify or improve the locations listing or the way this is advertized on the forums so that it's easier for people to attend on their own?

Rishi Night again! Tonight's theme is...

Old City Boardwalk! Part marketplace, part hangout, part street cafe, the tropical boardwalk has something for everyone. Just head north up the main path from the planet's starting location, then turn left into the Old City. The boardwalk is right there. See you there!

Also a reminder: The generated nights are meant to be low-key reliable filler, to keep things going every week. If you have an adventure you would like to run that Independent types would be interested in, feel free to volunteer to host a night or two for something more action-packed!

Even with a tutorial, it still seems a little like magic to me... :P

Very cool little tutorial! Looking forward to seeing more stuff!
