A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Six years after Order 66, the Galactic Empire rules most star systems with an iron fist. For the citizens, this is a time of fear and uncertainty. If the Empire’s planetary governors aren’t trying to strip-mine or over-farm the lands of their resources, many Force Sensitive children are forcibly taken from their homes and never seen again.

What few Jedi survived The Purge, the small, growing Rebel Alliance has pledged to identify and transport them to a secret Force Enclave on a planet codenamed: Haven.

Darth Vader, commander of the Imperial Inquisitors, has dispatched his finest with a similar mission - To identify, capture, and train Dark Side agents for The Emperor’s own Sith Order. To thwart rebel insurgents. To kill any that resist the Emperor’s rule.

Now, Haven faces an uphill battle to rescue all Force Sensitives from Vader’s grasp. Only through greater study and preparation can this small base of survivors and rebels hope to survive and eventually, prevail...

» Site Updates (01/15/2021)

Posted on Fri Jan 15th, 2021 @ 8:12pm by Shadow Knight Shana Oban HRH in General News

This Past Month we saw a few pages added to the Archives due to a busy holiday season. However, I still managed to get a bit of work done on the site. Most notably are guidelines and Nova's Mission and News terminology to better fit our universe. I've also broken down what the CO-GMs and AGMs do in ROTF, as well as breaking down the Episdoe structure.


New Pages


* Character Propety Guidelines
* Command Staff Responsibilities
* Episode Structure


Edited Pages


* Force Powers [Added 2 more powers.]
* Changed the Nova mission category language to reflect the Star Wars universe more accurately. [Missions to Episodes and Mission Groups to Story Trilogies]
* Main [Reformated the New Player Links]


Next month has no new pages planned at the moment, but knowing me and the rate at which ROTF continues to evolve, there will probably be 1-2 more new pages introduced next month. And as usual, small edits here and there will occur to further polish the overall look of the Sim's site.


» The Story So Far II...

Posted on Tue Jan 5th, 2021 @ 7:39am by Shadow Knight Shana Oban HRH in General News

Part I: The Prologue


It has been 2 months since The Enclave has laid Master Plex to rest. In that time, Darth Vader has dispatched more Inquisitors and demanded more traps be set for suspected Jedi-types and their sympathizers.

Haven itself has seen an uptick in Rebel Alliance allies, survivors, and Force Sensitives wanting to do their part in fighting the Empire. A few of The Enclave's Jedi Knights have even taken on padawans while others train hard to combat the Empire's troops and Inquisitors.

Force mystic, Ren Star-Gen-Su even gave The Enclave a few ideas on where to start with the base's fortifications and defensive capabilities.



Part II: Mission Departures


Much as the Jedi High Council once did, The Enclave's leadership has dispatched 3 teams to 3 separate planets. One team heads to Maramere, where they are in search of special crystals that when tuned to the Force, can act as a natural cloak against technology and sight.

A long-lost Jedi Master is stuck in The Shadowlands of Kashyyyk, evading Imperial troops. As such, to prevent further firebombing of the planet, the Rebels have asked The Enclave to dispatch their second team there. Deadly plants and vicious, massive insects await them, along with a clone running from the Empire.

The third team to leave Haven, is a group of underworld experts and a few Jedi sent to Nar Shaddaa. Their mission is to find out what happened to one of The Enclave's watchmen. Dealing with Black Sun and hidden Imperial units may complicate their efforts.



Part III: Story Unfolds


Haven, meanwhile, is busy with wildlife baby season. Trying to upgrade the base may be harder than they thought if the predators of stealth decide their territory has been encroached. Maybe the planet exploration team will have a better view of the situation?

On Maramere, the crystal heist team have to work fast to build defenses around a mine. Can they do this without getting Imperial attention? All we can assume is that the mine is very likely to be a hotly contested place once the Imps find their location.

Kashyyyk's team has split into 2 pairs. Jesse and Flare have made it clear they don't like or trust each other. Let's hope they come to terms soon, or else they could risk the mission and their lives. Meanwhile, Nylan and Illiana have gone a different path. With the young padawan's past record of fumbles and fubars, let's hope he doesn't get himself or his master killed.

On Nar Shaddaa, the Black Sun is being watched by shadowy figures. Who they're contracting with is unknown, but the deals they have made can only mean terrible things are on the horizon...


» Site Updates (12/14/2020)

Posted on Mon Dec 14th, 2020 @ 2:40pm by Shadow Knight Shana Oban HRH in General News

This past month, ROTF has seen some major changes/additions to it's Nova content. And this coming month, with the addition of Force Adepts as a pseudo-Force Class option, we'll see more alterations as the Command Staff discusses what we will and will not allow for their choices of Force Powers.

That aside, here are all the pages that has been added/updated:


* Force Powers (Added Many New Powers)
* Force Characters (Added Force Adepts)
* FAQ (Clarrified Wording Regarding Character Ships and Opened A/Y-Wings as Fighter Choices)
* Awards (Added 22nd Fleet Award Wins to the Site's Awards Page)
* Common Lingo (New Page)
* Sim Page (Added Star Wars Resources ROTF Pulls From)



Other pages have seen minor edits not worthy of note. Namely grammatical and syntax issues. However, I do wish to give a shoutout to Oma (aka Jagre/Trey) for helping me simplify the verbiage to some of the New Player pages.

Aside from the aforementioned Force Adept changes to be worked on this month, we'll continue to see what Force Powers we do and don't want to add, as well as create more wiki information that will better acquaint new players with ROTF. You should also expect a wiki page that clarifies the gear and ships character(s) can/cannot have.


» Sep-Oct Post of the Month Winners!!!

Posted on Fri Dec 11th, 2020 @ 4:57am by Shadow Knight Shana Oban HRH in General News

Grats to all the writers and a big thanks to all who voted for them with, The Great Padawan Rescue as our choice for 22nd Fleet's Post of the Month. Let's hope to see more great stories from such a talented group of players!!!


» 1st Mission Accolades!!!

Posted on Tue Dec 1st, 2020 @ 9:25pm by Shadow Knight Shana Oban HRH in General News

Overview


With The Events That Forged Us and A Call to Action, we've seen a lot of activity and eagerness within the first 4 months of operation. The GM/AGM staff could not be more proud.

While participation is great, we also want to recognize the dedication and positive attitudes within the ROTF player community. From recognizing and adhering to the Sim's lore, to helping new players familiarize themselves with the story and setting, the command staff has noticed and appreciated your hard work.

Awards ceremonies are always difficult because it can be hard at times to find the right award to fit the accomplishments of specific players. This time is no different. There are a lot of new players that came in at the tail end of the first mission. Due to little IC or OOC information to base off, many new players, unfortunately, did not make this list. However, we ask you not to get discouraged because, at the next mission awards ceremony, we are sure you'll see your names under some of these awards.


Quotes to Remember


Since the Sim opened, there have been some very funny quotes and some inspirational ones to stick out. These are the quotes that the community has brought forward for us to recognize. So for all the quotes that made this list, we salute your wordsmith ability!!!


"You're either very brave or very foolish, to flash that Jedi weapon of yours in public," she spoke with raised eyebrows, "there are many out there who still resent the Jedi." - Illiana to Jesse, The Great Padawan Rescue

"So... What is a temple guard doing out in the middle of nowhere?" - Elusiaa to Ren, To Grandmother's House We Go...

"Did I come to the right place, or shall I keep moving?" - Ravenlocke to Shana, Another Arrival, Another Day

"You must be the new Padawan," she spoke without raising her head from her hand. Why Nylan did such boneheaded things, was beyond her. "I hope his idiocy hasn't caused you to think poorly on our group of Jedi." - Shana Oban to Jesse, Home Sweet Home

"Sir the engines are ready and standing by the....ENGINES ARE HOT HOT HOT." - Vic to Jarris and Artorius, Stairway to Heaven

"There's nothing I hate more than a hypocrite. If you're going to be an asshole or a screwup, at least dedicate yourself. That's what I do." - Zyla to Ravenlocke, Meditations and Trainwrecks

"There is only one kind of Cactus that does this, the Shesomite Dreammaker. It's a Cactus genetically engineered and cultivated for its hallucinogenic effects. That stuff will send a hutt into space, let alone a human." - Akaris to Various, Home Sweet Home


Awards


For this section, the command staff wishes to acknowledge those who have participated strongly in the last mission, as well as made positive impressions in the community be it behavior or writing.


Prolific Puffer-Pig Plot Participation Ribbon

First up, are people who managed 4 posts or more this last mission. For your dedication and ability to keep the mission going, Shep, Kai, Oma, Raff, Larkin, Ryuukei, Cypher, Aukil, and David have all been awarded this ribbon.

Our Command Staff believes a healthy posting activity is in part of what makes our Sim great. And we hope all the new players who joined us at the end of our first mission, will stick around for celebrations just like this.

Good job team!!!


Action Hero Merit

For this award, Oma nominated Larkin and Shep for, The BD Battalion Rides Again. The flow of these fights was easy to follow, entertaining, and it's clear the writers had put a lot of time into choreographing their fights. The teamwork and organization that went into the post is the gold standard of Cooperation for our Sim.


Comedic Timing

For our next award, the writers of The Great Padawan Rescue are acknowledged for their hard work and effort. This post was one entertaining ride of crazy, funny antics that was greatly needed after the Adamar Prison story. All players involved did well writing off each other and the jokes felt natural and unforgettable.

Give a round of applause to David, Kai, and Larkin!!!


Player's Achievement

For this award, the Command Staff received no nominations from the players (maybe we'll get some nominations next time). However, we felt there was 1 player in particular that stood out. The first recipient of the Player's Achievement award goes to a man who - while he might not know the Sim's lore down-pat yet, his efforts in helping fellow new players settle in have been noticed. So to Angelous, we thank you for your effort. :)


Writer's Achievement

The winners of this award are multiple and from different sources.

* The first set of winners of the Writer's Achievement are Endia and CypherHornet for their post: Meditations and Trainwrecks.

This post flows effortlessly and in such an entertaining way. Both characters have clear personalities and distinguish themselves from other characters. As such, Zyla and Ravenlocke's players deserve this award.


* The next recipient of the Writer's Achievement award, I feel there are too many links to display his talent. Instead, I believe a summary is the next best option.

Shep's Hero's Trial for Elusiaa has been a treasure to watch. From capture, to rescue, to her recovery. This Jedi Knight has been damaged in ways few can relate and how Elusiaa is unable to form relationships as easily as she once did, is evidence of her trauma.

How the woman heals these invisible scars will continue to be a storyline to watch. Thus I feel, Shep deserves this honor.


Closing Remarks


For the Sim's first mission completion, we learned a lot about what works and what doesn't work for action-related Star Wars JPs as well as the mission formatting needed to pull off a lot of our ideas. We also figured out a better way to streamline new players into the story. Nova's pre-set ranks, awards, and other Trek-focused systems aren't entirely friendly to this Sim's franchise world, but I feel we've worked out all the major kinks.

It seems most people enjoyed the multi-story arc mission model that was done in A Call To Action so going forward, we are going to do that with AGMs entrusted to lead/run those 4 to 5-person story teams.

The key to a healthy Sim here, is communication, dedication, and welcoming attitudes. Our Command Staff also encourages all people to JP with someone you've not JPed with yet. And remember...


May the Schwartz be with you.
