Relevant Threads and a Description Per Thread in Chronological Order:
  • Passion, Yet Serenity: (Self-DM) After being split from the group, Oren Zapan and padawans Izel and Xander are lured into a darkside labyrinth that leads to the valley where the old Praxeum is located. They have to face their inner turmoil and emotions, as they make their way through the cavern system, in hopes of finding a way out and not succumbing to the darkside.
  • Emotion, Yet Peace: (DICE) Maxims and Saul are with padawan Moza as they've been separated from Oren and his group. They walk along the molten rivers when Saul gets gravely injured. Sacrifices are made along the way as they look to get help for their critically injured friend.
  • Ignorance, Yet Knowledge: (DICE) Maxims and his group make their way past the molten rivers, and find an old Imperial Mining Facility. They make their way through the remnants of a bygone Empire as they look for help for Saul and Moza, as well as a way to power the lift that would take them to the Praxeum.
  • Chaos, Yet Harmony: (DICE) Oren and his group survive the cave systems and find themselves within a valley full of difficult terrain and vast amounts of equipment left over from the Mining facility above them. They begin to traverse, but suddenly are broke apart when the valley begins to rumble as the Mining facility is brought back online. Oren must carry an injured Xander and find a way to save his padawans from death, as they climb and run towards the safety of the Praxeum.
  • Death, Yet the Force: (Member DM) Those who can manage to walk make their way within the temple, where they feel the lingering darkness around the temple. A large door is frozen shut, barring entrance, and they discuss the idea of healing planets and echoes through the force. Darkside apparitions appear and Max, Oren, and Izel have to cleanse the darkside by giving parts of themselves to cleanse it. With the darkness gone, the temple doors slowly shift open to reveal Wyck's Holocron, and the mysteries of a bygone Era.

Oh dear.

This plot has some really concerning things in it, namely the use of dice. The plot team stepped in to warn about abusing dice multiple times, and it seems those were unheeded.

A complete failure for pirate diplomacy just to roll again immediately for the same thing, fail it again and then roll it again and have everything be hunky dory?

Then immediately rolling to see if the pirates that you were just in combat with will help you? And then the pirates just honor the agreement because pirates are so honorable?

Suffice it to say the entire first thread in the plot is really not acceptable.

Moving on from there, we come to the second big issue, which is that Nightfall should have been out of the plot at this point because of his injuries.

“Sreeya 01/09/2020 The main thing is he’s gonna have to be out of the plot” and again “Painus 01/08/2020 He doesn't need to die but it's definitely gonna be a KO for the rest of the plot”

And then next thread is carrying on like it’s no big deal. Someone falling in lava is “drop everything immediate medical attention.” You were even specifically told as much “Painus 01/08/2020 severe burns and needing immediate medical care.“ Instead of dropping everything, climbing onto the ship, and flying to get him bacta you… walked along a lava river for long enough that it probably would have killed him.

Slapping some bacta salves on a wound that - per OOC moderator statements and even IC admission in the thread itself - needed full body bacta submersion and calling it good to then walk along a lava river like it’s all good… this is a problem. Not only that, but the character that’s supposed to be out of the plot entirely then makes several “saving” rolls.

So then we’re into the dice on this thread, and while it's not as grave as the last, we have more re-rolling for things. This dice is “barely” a success, so immediately roll again to make it a full success?

So with all of this said, here are the repercussions of this.

OOC there were rule violations so the OOC repercussions for those are as follows:
1. The two threads in violation (Emotion, Yet Peace and Ignorance, Yet Knowledge) will not be allowed to "count" toward the plot. As such, two additional dice threads will need to be done to find the holocron.
2. Participants of "Emotion, Yet Peace" and "Ignorance, Yet Knowledge" may not participate in the subsequent threads. They will also not share in any of the reputation or other benefits of having participated in this plot.

IC repercussions:
1. Rather than finding the holocron, only a star map is retrieved. This map will have to be followed in order to find the holocron (this will make up the two dice threads required as stated above).
2. After the plot, Oren will have to meet with the Council to explain how so many Jedi have been severely injured under his leadership.

I'll take the council thread in current time, after the prison time frame, and will have to look for someone. Since I'm like the last member left at this point, otherwise I might just drop the plot all together depending on how the council stuff goes. I'll let you know.
