Just a heads up @Niarra, I have a rare break from tabletop night on August 16, so if you need a hand with anything really, I'm available to help.

Thank you for the offer, but the museum should actually be fairly low-key on the GM side. It's 50% "let folks RP somewhere other than the oft used ol' guild SH for a night" and 50% adventure, so not too much bookkeeping on my side for that one. But if time permits and you'd like to have a character at the museum on their own business, certainly feel free! I'm more than open to folks bringing non-Jedi characters along for the free-form portion, or even with agendas of their own, as long it's understood that when I get to the running-the-investigation portion of the night I'll be focusing on only one team and one agenda, as per the premise of the event. But hey, if folks have cause to be shadowing or monitoring the Jedi at their business, who am I to argue?  :evil:

If anyone is going to need keys on an Imp-side character for tonight's Jedi Night (A Night at the Museum), try to let me know before event start time. I know it's not very likely, but just covering all the bases!

Otherwise I'll keep an eye on Republicooc for any requests, and the stronghold will also be publicly listed so if I am not responding to invite requests you can always get there on your own that way. It is a Manaan stronghold and will be listed as "Galactic Museum's Stronghold." Normally I'd say it should be right at or near the very top of the public listing, but since I deliberately left this SH at less than 100% I can't say where it will fall. It will be somewhere on the list at any rate.

Event primer/reminder below!



Scenario #1: A Night At the Museum

A new museum has opened on Manaan, with a focus on the galactic history of the last century. The museum has received high praise for its extensive and well-curated exhibits, and some have praised it for its willingness to explore controversial subjects even while others have criticized it for the same. In addition to its exhibits on worlds that have featured in recent galactic events (such as Voss, Ansion, Ilum, Oricon, and others) there is also a natural history wing, and two highlight exhibits on the galaxy's most prominent Force-using religions: the Jedi and the Sith.

A couple members of the Custodum enclave already visited the museum and reported that among its many replicas in the Force-traditions wing the museum had come into possession of some genuine artifacts which it was unknowingly displaying in the belief that they were harmless recreations - in particular a Jedi holocron, and a sarcophagus in the Sith exhibit, with the latter faulted for having caused a great deal of unease in staff and guests both. It was arranged for both of these artifacts to be removed and replaced with recreations, and that was thought to be the end of the issue - until recently.

Museum personnel have reached out to the Custodum enclave (and any other Jedi enclaves known to them) with a request for the enclave to send Jedi scholars to come and review the museum after some exhibits were updated upon receipt of new artifact shipments. A rumor has started to spread like wildfire through the museum staff that the whole place has become haunted, and anxious curators would like some Jedi authority figures to show up, investigate, and put the rumor to rest once and for all.

OOC Event Details: A Night At the Museum will take place in a personal stronghold, so cross-faction access is possible if arranged ahead of time so that I can get you a key, but keep in mind the premise of the adventure is that Jedi folks have been called in to assist. If you want to play someone who was randomly visiting the museum at the time and gets swept up in events you can certainly do so, but please keep in mind that the focus of the adventure (and thus the GM's attention) will be on taking the Jedi team through their mission, so there won't be much wiggle room to accommodate wild-cards that would run counter to that storyline (though they're more than welcome to participate in it).

Start Time and Rules: There will be no rules or rolls for this mini-adventure, just bring your characters and your imagination and your sense of team play. We'll start a little early at 7:00 PM PST, and the first half of the night will be free-form, allowing time for characters to ICly wander the museum in whatever manner they choose, as a group or otherwise. Once everyone has had the opportunity to settle into the scene, the team can begin to take steps toward investigating exhibits and artifacts of their choosing, or engaging in any other method desired to get to the bottom of the mystery.

As with most investigation stories, reveals don't happen until the end, so in the interest of time the investigation phase will begin exactly by the clock at 8:30 PM PST. Not everyone has to actively participate in the investigation phase; you can just keep RPing around the museum if you wish. But those who do want to investigate will coordinate via the Ops group channel.

After assessing some RL impacts, I'm going to need to reschedule the Mahara Kesh iteration/adventure of Jedi Night for the 30th (moving it back from the 23rd this week). The premise remains unchanged from what I posted earlier in the thread, and I'll re-post it as the event comes up. If this reschedule will cause a conflict for anyone who was planning to attend just let me know, and I'll see about shifting it to accommodate.

In the meantime, for this week's Jedi Night, if we're doing a quiet moseying/debating/gossiping night in, I can offer the museum as a location for some non-adventure RP, just for a change of venue. After the Custodum's (and "friend") help taking care of the "haunting" problem last week, the Museum Director would certainly have comped the enclave some tickets, and there's plenty of opportunity for members to give lectures if anyone would like to do so. While many of the exhibits are very specific, there's a bunch on the Rooftop Garden that are deliberately nebulous and could be used to represent any variety of things of players' imaginings. Got a mysterious homeworld you want to lecture on? (Nudge @Hawking.) Or even a not-so-mysterious one that still has a prominent Force-tradition (Mirial, I'm looking at you). Plenty of opportunity for little lecture-ettes as folks wander around.

So unless anyone has an alternate proposal for this coming Thursday's Jedi Night (the 23rd), I can offer the above museum excursion and I'll have at least one lecture ready for our Jedi and Jedi-friends tour group.

Ok, Jedi-lings!

I've been a bit more strapped for time than I was expecting, which leaves me questioning tomorrow's planned Mahara Kesh adventure. Now, I'm still willing to run it tomorrow (might be improvising a bit more than I normally like to, but that's okay). But to decide for sure whether or not to go forward with it tomorrow, or later, I'd like to try to get a headcount of folks who think they might attend tomorrow.

For the last month or so we've had a spate of folks expressing interest in events and then not showing, so if I'm going to go forward with the Mahara Kesh adventure tomorrow I'd like to make sure that there will actually be people there to participate (not to mention that headcount estimate always helps in planning). If participation looks guaranteed to be low, I might bump it to next week and give myself a little more time to tweak. Sooo... sound off?

Copy that! Dassalya and Taelios (or Althos?) are a go!

I should clarify that I will run the adventure anyway, no matter the attendance number (heck I'll even run it as a solo if need be, with whomever ends up being unlucky enough to have to deal with an entire ancient temple by themselves), but the attendance check here helps me determine whether or not I should hustle to keep it on the books for tonight.

At this point, I think I am going to push it out, though, for a variety of reasons that aren't worth rambling about. Probably next week! (Though if anyone had plans for next week feel free to say so and I can happily push out one week after that.) I am not 100% on whether or not I'll be at JN tonight, but if the stars align I'll certainly be there.

Another very late response lol, I was planning to attend this event whenever it happens! I wouldn't have been able to make it tonight tho so pushing it back a week works for me.

@Dassalya, @Lolermelon, @SquigglyV - Does this Thursday (the 6th) work for you guys for the Mahara Kesh adventure? (And anyone else who was thinking of going feel free to chime in too.) I'm flexible about this date, so if a different Thursday would work for the folks interested I am fine with moving it.

And as a heads up to other Jedi Night folks: As soon as I put in a new date for the Mahara Kesh adventure, I'm also going to put a couple other less adventure-y Jedi Nights on the calendar (a couple things planned for Tython, some alternative strongholds, and etc), so I'll mentioned those here and also on the calendar when timing is clearer. Alternating home turf with open world occasionally seems like a good thing for catching fresh RP fish in the bigger pond.

I won't actually be available this Thursday! We have a single, one screen theatre where I live, and the lil' sis and I are going to see a movie there before it switches to the next one. Thursday, unfortunately, is the only day that works for us! Could we push the adventure back to the 13th? Does that work for everyone else, too?

Urgh! With apologies, I'm afraid I need to push the Mahara Kesh event out again.  :sigh: This has been a terrible week and I've been prevented from doing prep work. Additionally, we've got some folks who have mentioned interest in the past who wouldn't be able to make it this week.

For tomorrow night, instead I can try to lead some Jedi-themed lesson RP on either Tython (open world) or in the museum stronghold. Does anyone have a preference?

I would say Tython, public stuff is preferable to stronghold stuff for something like a lesson imo. Open world RP might attract some people too maybe!

Guys, I am the absolute worst.  :umm: I keep dropping the ball on the last few things I need to get lined up in order to run Mahara Kesh. So I'm afraid I have to push it out yet again, BUT!

I will run some open world RP on Tython for tomorrow's Jedi Night, and I specified that on the calendar. We'll start with some combat lessons for learners at the training grounds behind the Temple speeder station (down by the waterfall), if we get learners attending. If we don't have learners, but we have any exotic weapon specialists (or form experts) among Knights or Masters who want to teach a combat lesson around their specialty please come on down!

If combat lessons aren't practical based on the makeup of our attendees, we'll have a more philosophical lecture and discussion, still in the same location (the training grounds by the waterfall). If the flow of the night's RP leads us to moving locations, we will. Nothing over-structured here, just some open world Jedi-ness. Come join us with your Jedi types or other Tython-appropriate denizens.

Thanks to everyone who came to Jedi Night last week. We had a good time on Tython, and I'll definitely be using Tython again for future Jedi Nights, I've got a couple locations already picked out for a variety of "themes." We played things pretty free-form last week because I wasn't sure about the attendance makeup, but if people would like things to be more overtly structured feel free to say so.

As for tonight's scheduled adventure, I'm starting to think it's cursed.  :scared: I'm afraid I am feeling less than stellar health-wise today, and I'm thinking it's not a good bet to count on my being fully GM-ready, so I'm going to need to reschedule. If the infirmity gods allow, I will still try to show up for general Jedi Night shenanigans if they're happening.
