I'm sure that people have questions, so ask here and answers will be given. They may even be the correct answers!

It seems that it is not the right time to flesh out the Jensaarai as a NPC organization with this, correct?

If they're a faction, then yes.

It depends, would the history of Coruscant involve multiple factions/groups?We are avoiding that sort of submission (multi-faction), right now, as it reaches into a whole different level of complication that extends beyond the means of the current template.

Can lore include non-canon backstory information?

 

People in a character's history, involvement within the last 800+ years, etc?

Yes...but don't go ahead and presume much. Individual backgrounds are fine, but we will never approve sweeping things for pre-SWRP times.

What is the sanctity of lore? 

Like. I noticed the term canon is tossed around but what benefits does it pose? What specifically would be good things that  a player/faction would want 'legitimized' so to speak in here? I'm just confused by the overall function of lore; is it there simply to display events or create indisputable canon?

Would lore include adding the history of a species I plan to create and a possible prophecy of their return?

Hakora Cinthraif you are creating a species then information about them would go into their submission.

 

Catalys Maijora I believe I answered this on Skype for you.

including prophecy? That was why I was believing there should be lore as well.

I prophecy for a species is part of their culture and would be included there. The Lore section is for event pretaining to factions for now with expansions planned in the future.

Would lore include things that happened in the Old Republic-Clone Wars era? Or just this site's timeline?

 

I ask because I made a master level lore figure for OJC-722 and Eddie's backstories. He fought the Sith from the last years of the Old Republic to the Clone Wars, but his genetic code was used as a template only a few years ago by a single cloning facility.

Eddie currently lore is for factions not individuals. That type of information would go into your characters bio

Will there be a tag system to categorize lore into various types, similar to how the Factory categorizes some things with tag titles beside the submission name, to allow for easier searching?

 

i.e; '[Faction]', '[Planet]', '[Personal]', etc.

 

This is totally not a suggestion. Totes asking a question.

As answered in your other thread...eventually yes it's probable.

Is the creation of event such as the resurface of new medicine accepted if even is possible through 800 years of evolution?

A new medicine would require a submission to Factory Technology, I do believe. If you are looking to do such a thing, you will likely need a discovery and engineering DEV thread for the medicine in question, which you should try to complete before actually submitting anything. DEV threads do not guarantee approval, but most judges will work with you to get it to that stage.

 

If this is a pre-existing canon medicine and you just want to write the history of it and how it effected people/places/things/events then that might be something you could submit to Codex Lore.
