Events and Occasions / Re: All of Ossus

I'm with @Niarra :) This is our first community event in a bit, and I'd hate to miss a chance to see all the wonderful regulars  :grin:

Guild Recruiting / So I have some Imps...
« on: 01/14/19, 07:06:53 AM »
Hi everyone,

Now that my crazytown holiday party season is over, I'm back on a more regular basis at least until the summer :) With that said, I have a couple of un-guilded Imperials who are CL 300 in full 248, who I'd love to donate if anyone can make use of them for game stuff and RP:

  • Lord Inivera Kuar (IG: Inivera; marauder) - a Sith Lord from Makeb, who the Empire believes deserted them during the war with Zakuul, but who was actually flying solo missions, picking off errant Eternal Empire vessels and raiding them for supplies. She is deeply loyal to the Empire.
  • Julan Vars (IG: Julan; arsenal merc) - a semi-retired bounty hunter who is searching for his son, who went missing during the war with Zakuul. He supports the Empire because he agrees with the ways the Sith do business.

Let me know if they can be of any assistance :)

I agree with the "all alive" consensus. I think it's much easier (and more recoverable) to assume Jace, Acina, etc. are still booting around the Galaxy. If BW goes screwy and perma-kills anyone, then *poof* they're out of our canon. But if they (also go screwy and) make anyone a super key part of the ongoing story, no harm no foul to us :)

I will be there with Meagan :) Also, while the Orchestra is with the Republic Fleet at the point of time of the event (since this is pre-Ossus-cataclysm), it is still available should anyone try to die and need medical assistance :rage:

(Edit: Also @Hawking - if you need help getting through anything, I'll be around most evenings this week)

Somewhere in the Cron Drift
Aboard the Republic Naval Service Hospital Ship the Orchestra

"Well don't you look cute, Admiral." The translucent blue holo of Admiral Parnett floated above the circular chrome table in front of the three girls, with his arms folded behind his back. He rolled his eyes. "Do you always wear that when I send you exploring?"

"I think she looks super cute." One of the girls, the shortest, spoke while she adjusted the clasps that secured the cape to the shoulders of the woman Admiral Parnett addressed. The shortest girl was wrapped in a white half-robe with a hood pulled over her sandy blonde hair, and two lightsabers clipped to a cloth belt.

"Small, stop fussing." The tallest girl said. She swatted the shorter girl's hand away.

"Do not!" The shorter girl tried to lunge at the tallest, but the girl in the middle simply, and calmly, pressed an open hand on the girl's forehead and over her eyes, and held her in place. The shorter girl batted at the the hand, giggling softly.

"Would you two please stop and let me finish my briefing? It's bad enough that I had to risk my ship trying to navigate this krickin' asteroid field. I at least need to know why."

"Language." The tallest girl said.

The holo of Admiral Parnett burried his face in his palm, and sighed deeply.

"Am I fired yet?" The girl in the middle returned her attention to the holo.

"Why do you always ask me that, Meagan?"

"Because I keep expecting you to say yes."

The shortest girl giggled. "She really does."

Admiral Parnett sighed again. "I have no doubt of that, Medley."

"Enough. Explain." The tallest girl said. She folded her arms across a chest that bore the symbol of the Republic Medical Corps.

"Master Alexandra, to be completely transparent, I do not know. After the attack on the Yavin moon, we have reason to suspect that certain elements escaped beyond the Cron Drift, to one of the old worlds that have laid beyond our purview. Once you rendezvous with the Republic Fleet, I hope to have more information."

"And in the meantime?" Meagan asked.

"Go alone. Take a Flashfire and do your best to avoid detection. Scout any planets you come across, and sweep for activity."

"And whattif she finds some?" Medley asked.

"Report back to the Orchestra and the Fleet. I suspect whatever you might found out there, it will not be pleasant. It is of the utmost importance that you are not discovered."

"Sounds good. Thanks boss." Meagan said. She tapped a button on the table and the holo blinked out.

"You have no intention of listening to him, do you?" Alexandra asked.

"Do I ever?" Meagan smirked at Alexandra. She turned and began walking from the conference room to the Bridge, with her sisters in tow.

I'm always here  :whee: I just tend to have a super screwy play schedule, because of work and yes holidays.

Have to completely agree with your feelings about the story: it was short, but I think we're all so used to dialogue + flashpoint that it's bit of a hard comparison. I think, for the time involved, the actual meat and substance of the story was longer than any of Nathema, Iokath or Copero.

But! It definitely dialed up the volume on RP, with the renewed war. Ossus was almost like a "mini-Sacking" - the Empire seized the initiative and attacked first, which left the Republic scrambling to defend.

But holy it sure did introduce a number of our favourite cats all over again...I've played through both Republic and Impsie side, and can fill in some of the gaps in terms of story groups and characters:

Confirmed Alive No Matter the Player Choices:
  • Darth Malgus
  • Tau

Could Either be Dead or Alive, alive and with their faction, or captured by the opposite faction:
  • Darth Malora
  • Master Gnost-Dural

State of Ossus Post-Story:
  • You are correct - the Republic evacuated almost all of the Jedi and civilians, but left behind a small force to guard the ruins and library. The evacuation was necessary because, since Ossus is so close to Imperial space coupled with the lack of resources available for all-out war, there was no way the Republic would have any hope of winning.
  • For the Imperials, the bombing attack on their temporary base destroyed a significant part of their infrastructure, meaning they also couldn't properly support a sustained military operation on the planet. Given that the target of their attack - the Jedi - escaped, there was little reason for them to remain in force.

The Jedi
  • Since the Ossus Jedi weren't a completely organized group - more like refugees in hiding - they were free to go wherever they chose after the evacuation. It's not explicitly stated, but heavily hinted, that a majority joined General Daerunn aboard his starship, bound for the Core Worlds to rejoin the Republic. Tau was part of this group.
  • Master Gnost-Dural mentions that only two other organized Jedi factions survived the war with Zakuul: the Green Jedi on Corellia, and a "small group" that remained on Tython.

The Significance of Ossus
  • Aside from the history of the Jedi and Sith, Ossus was significant for one big reason - the farming methods developed by the colonists, essentially growing crops in the most hostile of places, is super huge because deploying those methods across the Galaxy will help to ease the food crisis that still remains after the Zakuul war.

I think that's it...the dailies don't really add much to the lore, as they're mostly repeating the missions you did in the course of the story.

Happy Sunday Lovelies,

Since the next story chapter is going to attack us on Tuesday, if anyone needs any help preparing or just gathering random giggles tomorrow I would be more than happy to help with anything you need :) And if that goofy "reorganizing data" monster doesn't melt my computer (which I honestly worry about) I'll be one of the first few on Ossus in the morning on Tuesday, so just holler in /republicooc /imperialooc if you need anything.

Questing and Leveling / How to Super-Level Your Imps!
« on: 12/05/18, 06:22:03 AM »
Hi lovelies,

If any of you have Impsies that aren't level 70/CL 300, there's a super quick (and actually fun) way to get them there coming up. And it's perfectly legal according to BW :)

The next double-XP/CXP event starts up on December 20, so here's what you do...

  • Pop an XP or CXP consumable boost
  • Head to Alderaan
  • Grab the Imperial heroic mission "Into the Kilik Warrens"
  • Listen in the planet general chat for people calling out for "Bug Hunt"
  • JOIN!
  • Warp to the heroic location, meet up with your new ops friends, and enjoy the carnage :)

Basically, you stand in a room with all of your new friends and slaughter wave after wave of super-quick-respawning bugs. To give you an idea of how quick and effective this is, I leveled Maladous, Julan, and Aubrey Anna from like level 30ish all the way up to like CL 50 in a single weekend. With maybe three hours bug hunting on each. It's NUTS!

A few points of etiquette to watch out for to keep your new ops friends from getting frosty and kicking you from the fun...

  • Don't AFK; if you need a bathroom break, or to grab a snack or drink, make sure to let everyone know. They're actually super vigilant about booting people who don't help.
  • About attention to how and from where your friends pull the bugs, and once you get the pattern join in!
  • Helping part 2...if you're a healer, please heal people :) And if you have the character perk for field repairs and/or field trainers, pop them as often as you can and make sure to let everyone know so that they can use them.
  • And of course, be nice :)

Sadly, there's no Republic equivalent.

Enjoy :evil:

The first that jumps out at me is that I *love* that they actually put the time and effort into writing this. Too much has been completely frizzy over the past couple of years, and it's nice to finally have some clarity.

Otherwise, I plan to continue doing my very best Ostrich impression, which I've become very good at, and basically not even acknowledge any "outlander" until the story people bring that chapter to a final close. I'd like to wish and believe that'll happen in 6.0, and I actually think 5.10 is a super big step into unifying all of the stray cats into a single super funky cat. I can hope, right?

If everyone decides to do it in a stronghold, and you need any deco mats, I have buckets of MK 1-4 prefabs and tons of war supplies that I'd be happy to donate for deco buying.
