    The hours are getting closer before the Reception starts. Still time to attend. I hope everyone has their evening attire all set. Just a few more threads to tie and it'll kick off.

    For those that aren't sure, it is being held at the Senate Building on Coruscant. If there are any queries, always welcome to ask.

    Happy Anniversary everyone!!

    This series has officially been running for 14 years now… hard to believe it has been that long. I want to thank everyone who has been a part of it and also to those who are continuing to add to its legacy.

    Of course, 14 years is a long time and can be hard to keep track of all the various threads, event, and altered from canon story arcs. Additionally, the truncation of many original posts from the previous episodes is a further confusing issue. The good news, however, is that there is a backup of everything that came before, so the history is preserved. With the scale of it all, there is a timeline project in the works to make it easier for everyone. It will be added to the Library thread over a period of time.

    For now, in the game, the Reception is finally starting.

    The Imperial Royalty and their entourage are boarding their transports and en route to the Galactic Senate Building where the event is being held. For arriving guests, there is a red carpet to follow through to the entrance. It is a festive atmosphere with crowds on the sidelines of the path and the media coverage and interviews, as well.
    At various points along the red carpet, select members of the media will be allowed a brief word or two with the guests if the guests so desire.

    I hope everyone will have a great time at this event. This is a chance for characters to be brought together, interact and mingle. Have fun.

    Only Imperial characters, or all sides?

    Hello everyone, and well done for achieving fourteen years!

    Thank you.

    The reception is more Imperial based given the nature of it and location and also where the most of our active cast of characters are located. Leaders from other worlds, Politicians, Admiralty, Celebrities and so forth who are vetted and invited to attend.

    Doing great, thanks, CO. I'll look forward to the start of the reception and should be able to post when it happens.

    Congrats again to everyone.

    Oh, in the game, the reception is starting.

    Interesting idea to have the entire game be the reception.

    In the rules, what does "Permission before statement" mean? Couldn't see it on the library thread.

    I am working on the arrival for some character and should be ready soon.

    The "Permission before statement" is connected to 'No God-modding'

    No God mode-ing – You may not “control” the actions and outcomes of characters other than your own without the express permission of the character’s author in which case, both you and the other writer must post a statement via PM to that effect to the GM.

    No creation and/or assuming of super-technologies, abilities, or weapons beyond the reasonable scope of your character. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis upon discussion with the GM.

    I hope that clarifies things.

    Thank you @LadyZaraMarta for adding Hsur 'The Voice of the Galaxy' Hgubmil :) I've added him to the current cast of characters in the Library thread. I think I've got everyone's character thus far…

    Hi CO! Congratulations again ! My apologies for saying in my character sheet at the top/bottom OCC instead of OOC....whoops!
    A question….does a minor character who may appear twice perhaps 3 times need a character sheet? Thanks!

    Thank you LZM!

    If it is a minor role for a handful of times then no need. If it is a supporting character with a reoccurring role then they will do. If it is part of a team… then the lead characters will and a brief one for each other member… I hope that helps. :)

    They all will eventually end up on the cast list as will the legacy characters from previous instalments.

    What's up pimples??? I mean people! Amazing that this has lasted this long. Goes to show you the quality of people that have contributed characters and solid stories. I'll see if I can get involved again. Anyone have the cliff notes on the last 14 years? :cool: 9 appointments today so I will see what I can do.

    It would be great for you to return. Always welcome to kept the Empire on their toes :p For a recap, will try and get something together for you. If you need any assistance, always happy to help out. That goes for everyone else.

    We also have to do something to celebrate the 15th Anniversary next May too.

    I hope everyone has had a great time during the festive season. Just a few things to touch base with. This update and post took longer due to cross checking facts and weaving in new threads while setting about resolving older ones. I'm adding this in here just in case it was missed in the game thread.

    With the Reception still going on, I assure you that there is more to the game than the event on Coruscant. This is just Act 1, a chance for characters to set their foundations, interact, start up threads, and the emergence of new factions as veiled threats. The campaign against the Separatists is over, the war for the fate of the galaxy will soon begin.

    When the Reception ends, Act 2 will start. A summary will be given with the aim to bring everyone up to speed and in sync.

    To ensure everyone is all on the same page, all updates and communications will be done in game or via this OOC thread. That allows everyone to be on equal footing rather than details lost in a myriad of private messages, players being excluded and misunderstandings. Any private issues are to be discussed privately. With all due respect, you do need to think a moment about what does and what does not constitute "private/personal."

    Jerjerrod-Lennox has officially withdrawn and her assets are now game controlled by the GM at the moment.

    If there are any queries, please don't hesitate to ask or drop me a line.

    A small update: I will be on limited time until Easter. @Adalia-Durron is gracious to keep an eye on things. For questions about about story arcs and so forth, @pashatemur will be on hand to answer those.

    There is a small update planned to go up soon regarding the Yuuzhan Vong encounter.

    For those at the Reception on Coruscant, the Empress has already addressed those in attendance. It would be appreciated to have follow up thoughts / impressions / reactions from your characters before the next part from @pashatemur or myself regarding the Reception goes live.

    If there are any queries, don't hesitate to ask here.

    Thank you for keeping an eye on things for me while I was away, @Adalia-Durron. Welcome to GAW :)

    A small post has went up, more are on the way. I am also planning an update to the resource thread sometime this week regarding characters and timeline.
