Canon planets now require a "Canon" tag. This is to make it easier for everyone to track down and locate canon planets that have been heavily roleplayed on Chaos and have been resubmitted to expand upon the Wiki article with that Chaos history. If you are the submitter of a canon planet that has already been approved, we ask you post to submission modifications thread to request that the Canon tag be added to your sub.

 

Some Locations now have Security Ratings. This is to reduce the use of hard numbers which may upset balance in both judging and roleplay as well as make Codex ratings more uniform with the Factory. More unique defenses, such as area shields and cloaking fields, may be asked to be quantified as to avoid an unlimited number of what would be a more powerful and distinguishing feature. Locations that require now Security Ratings: Military Base, Space Station. All other locations will continue to have security and defense features listed prior to this update.

 

Species may not be entirely Force sensitive or Force dead. It goes without saying, situations like this are exceedingly rare. However, we do from time to time see them in the Codex, and very seldom are they approved. The unwritten rule is now written in that entirely Force sensitive/dead species may not be submitted except in the case of a Staff sanctioned challenge/contest reward or with explicit permission from Staff and are still subject to judging to ensure balance.

 

Use of NPC Group template clarified. Lately subs have been being submitted which would not constitute and NPC group. The primary purpose of NPC groups is to supplement character development. Groups which would focus moreso on collective group development, are actively or have historically been roleplayed and/or have several PCs in their membership are not an NPC group and not appropriate for submission in the Codex. At this time, we do not have a template to accommodate the aforementioned types of groups and recommend posting them as blog posts or in faction forums until we can come up with an amicable solution in Codex.

 

Ship Crew numbers specified. There is now a maximum number for crew members in a single submission, rather than a rough estimate for a ceiling.

 

Lore! We're putting more hands on the development of a new Lore section within the Codex and are confident it'll open up a myriad of new possibilities for everyone. If you have ideas or suggestions, we're happy to hear them out! Please submit them to the Codex Discussion section using the Suggestion prefix. We do not have a launch date at this time.

 

Per usual, submissions which have not yet been approved will be asked to conform to the new templates and rules if they do not do so already. Those already approved are effectively grandfathered.

Does this apply to combat units which are historically comprised of mostly player-characters? I had a submission ready to go of that nature and wanted to know if it would still be appropriate for the Codex.

At this moment no. We are currently working on the Lore option which would be where you would be putting the mostly PC based organization. The NPC groups are for groups that are comprised of NPCs that support a PC, like squads, units etc. Hopefully that answers your question. I suggest putting your submission as a blog or as a doc that you can link. If people question it you can link this post if they have any questions.

 

Also thank you Mant for posting this for Me and the rest of Codex <3 I had a busy day and you're amazing and appreciated :)
