    Introducing: Port Lux Reborn & New Hub RP System


    [​IMG]


    Hello, tasty Bacons! Today we shall be introducing plans for the new RP Hub and a rework of the RP system.

    [Anything mentioned here can be subject to change. Nothing is set in stone yet, though it is unlikely much I tell you here will change. The community will be notified before release]

    What is this Hub and what will it offer?


    -
    I'm glad you asked imaginary Bacon. Lux Reborn looks to offer an experience similar to the casual RP Hub by bringing things like custom races and magic back to the table. For those who remember; Port Lux was a hylotl port/village RP Hub back before the 1.0 update, but our talented server builders have fixed it up to be exciting for new arrivals and old veterans alike.

    What kind of rules and changes are planned for the RP system?

    • You, your freedom and the new RP. The priority with overhauling how we do things felt on two points 1) Keep the freedom of the players on RP, and 2) Do not have to approve characters and what players do in the RP. We have decided to have a monitoring group that is meant to prevent someone's RP to be abusive and disruptive of others, that is going to be the only point to ensure balance is kept without a strict ruleset, within a team-decision reality, our Monitors will decide upon what is disruptive or not and can work with you to help you iron out any issues that might be considered disruptive. With that said, the new system only falls upon Port Lux; Cenaria and New Earth will remain accessible on the server.

    • Changes to moderation ranks. Changes for the RP staff roles are being looked at and discussed by our staff team, for now we can promise you one new change that we shall definitely be implementing; the new hub will be closely and fairly monitored by a dedicated team. We have all agreed to a system where all decisions will be made as a team to ensure fairness and less confusion - this means that actions taken by RP staff will be more consistent for similar situations.

    • A magic system and way to balance out magical combat (We are not restricting magic or its power potential. We simply wish to prevent people arguing about spells being overpowered), dice and a simple turn system have always been a nice way to settle RP disputes.

    • Open-for-all, but under control. The new RP HUB will allow everyone that has a SB Login to join in, we are keeping guests out of it to reduce the amount of trolling and random disruptive players that always been a complaint we got, the control is enforced by ensuring people that are too abusive/disruptive of RP can and will be kept out.

    • New lore to keep things friendly for any and all characters. We plan to fully release the lore for Lux when the hub comes out, the lore is the overall setup of Lux itself. For now stay tuned, suggestions will be considered - contact our RP Staff

    • Punishments for Powergaming, Metagaming and OOC Mixing. Overpowered gods, trolling joke characters and immersion breaking RP is all too common in casual RP, it's something we see often and have decided to make rules against. Staff intervention is now possible for characters Power/Meta Gaming - we want to keep everything as fair as possible.

    • Character Revival System. Resurrection of a dead character is a controversial subject, and something that could easily be abused, but we understand cloning is a possibility in the Starbound universe, so we have decided to implement an RP-based cloning system that is run through an in-game genetic company run by staff members - the current version we have worked out is luck based, so characters looking to be cloned have the odds against them in order to prevent invincible characters and add some fear to dying still. (*The Cloning System is still being developed so it's, like the other rules, subject to change in the near future.)

    • One entire new forum category for RP. No longer behind one whitelist, the new category will be organized for all matters, from you posting your characters, to report/request sections, to news and events. A new Discord "Joinable Rank" is added for Roleplayers, granting you access to text and voice channel that will also linked to the community RP-section activity.
