A Dread Mind

Ziost

  • Date: Thursday July 19, 2018
  • Time: 6:00PM P.S.T. (start time can be flexible upon request) Updated: 5:00PM P.S.T.
  • Location: Ziost, in-game, post-Vitiate storyline
  • Timeline: Current, 3630 BBY, seven years since the Invasion of Ziost (spoiler warning)
Prelude: A Dread Mind

This Event is being held on the traditional Jedi Night Event time slot, however it is open to Jedi and Sith characters alike. Other Force-Sensitive characters may also attend, please post a reply with your character request. Non-Force Sensitive characters can also attend, however I am requesting they have a meaningful connection to one of the attending Jedi or Sith characters. (eg. Personal assistant, personal pilot, security, spouse) 

Story hook: Two weak distress beacons broadcasting on Republic/Sith channels have been picked up, and traced back to Ziost. The signals are old Jedi/Sith distress codes, not used in decades. Despite its' coordinates within the Sith Empire, Ziost is a barren world, avoided by most space traffic, and even the Republic and the Sith Empire have long since abandoned any survey sites, due to the inhospitable climate, terrain, and the surviving Sith Monoliths that still stalk the ash-filled plains.

The Republic cannot risk sending a sizable rescue mission, and the Sith Empire remains too fractured to coordinate any meaningful effort utilizing large fleet ships. Small task forces of volunteers are all they can muster on what could just be a ghost signal bouncing across the Galaxy.

Out-of-Character: It is important that characters have completed the Ziost storyline in-game, as the game world is now devoid of mobs. It is perfect for exploration and role-play, with the potential for occasional Player-vs.-Environment.

As with many of my prior Events, I will permit Player-vs.-Player scenes, if the players involved find consensual dance partners prior to the start of the Event. PvP is not a focus of this Event, however character conflict will remain a core theme, so put on your role-play shoes.

Choose an outfit suitable for a barren, ash-strewn world haunted by the echoes of a dying world, yet remarkably, still maintains a strong connection to the Force.

I Disappear

Do you bury when I'm gone?
Do you teach me while I'm here?
Just as soon as I belong,
then it's time I disappear

I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Just a reminder there is one week remaining for anyone wanting to sign up for A Dread Mind Event next week. If you are on the fence about attending, or don't think your character has a strong enough hook, please post a reply or reach out to one of your fellow players who have already signed up.

The active community size has dwindled rapidly. These Events are becoming fewer and fewer in number and participation. Join me in exploring the nature of the Force one more time...

Drat- I've been stuck from doing Ziost II due to glitches on Chiss boss and quest credit, but will see if i can manage.  Can only bring caben, but I may dress his Chiss as Maerin and say both came.  Makes sense with his fleet active on the Rim border worlds and her keeping watch at Adega base.

I am still torn trying to decide who to bring to this. Do I bring the person who might make working with the other faction easier and has a cool head for danger? Or do I bring someone who will absolutely make it harder to work with the other faction and processes things in a way almost certain to make things more complicated? (I mean, I know what the devil on my shoulder says, but still... )

I know for most interesting makeup I ought to just bring a Sith... but I don't have enough Sith characters I'm genuinely invested in, and we get events like this so rarely now that I can't help wanting to bring the Jedi out to play... argh, decisions decisions...

... screw it, I'm bringing the psycho pyro pink pig-tailed horror...

I think my real life schedule is going to allow me to make this, but things changed again today, so... I may only know for sure a bit before the event. I'm not quite sure who I'm bringing yet, but I'm leaning towards a new sith character.

Regrettably I must withdraw due to clashing work commitments, the demons in upper management have decreed that my attendance to their slave factory is compulsory on pain of death.

Hope it's a good time, very keen to RP the fallout!

Characters:

-Hawking Shatari, Master of Myserty
-Aspasia Maguire, Smack Talker
-Rieko "Boogie" Black, Agent of the Empire

I'm still definitely going to be there (barring totally unpredictable Life things). For the time being I think I've decided on bringing the character who could make it harder to work with the other faction because that's more fun!  :evil: Also because she's got Seer abilities that are only half-way under her control and Ziost sounds like a great place for that. (Again with the  :evil:.) If it turns out a different character really feels indicated when it comes down to it, then I'll make the change then. Looking forward to it!

Thank you to everyone who has posted with ideas and updates.  Sorry to hear some folks can't make it.  More voices would enrich the Event.

Confirmations are now live if you are still planning to attend.

I'll also still be there for sure! Unfortunately I couldn't level my very fitting Jedi (she has ties to Ziost!) in time, so i'll just be bringing a very scary™ sorceress instead to be spooky and mystical with. And probably also help create difficulties in cross-faction relations lol.

I doubt i'll be able to stay for the whole event though. :(

I want to be there tomorrow, but it's kinda a coin flip. Okay odds I'll be on time(ish), good odds I'll be a bit late, might miss it outright.

...

Look, at the end of fucking Tuesday I had put in over 20 hours of work. And I did OT tonight. It's just one of those weeks, with any luck Kyri "Troubleshooter" "That means I shoot Trouble" Orell will be available to help with the crazy-ass Jedi shit going down >_>.
Character List:

Pub side: Lien Orell, Kyri Orell, Shaantil (possibly Dumas), Norland, Everen (bank alt ATM), Quarashaa (Pub version of the real Quarasha), Merrant

Imp Side: Quarasha, Effet Ornell, Arazel, Zedney, Zhel, Asori-Alnas
