I am very much new here on the forums but lately I have been keeping up a tab to "The Guide" at the top of the screen, so that way I can quickly flick to any questions I might be trying to throw at folk. Obviously now I'm posting here because there's a question of mine that I cannot find elsewhere....
I have mostly been curious of how you could actually send a request to a faction leader outside of the planet you reside on? Let's say by chance that my character could watch some galactic news in a tavern previewing one of their latest deeds, or passively finding it when a holographic Twi'lek was dancing for their faction as a way to advertise themselves, how would my character really get the information to them?
I might come down to some of the following:
- Hiring a messenger service on the planet or a freelancing pilot at the docks; this could cost around five or so credits realistically in the Star Wars universe
- Send by some means of say a personal account to theirs (like email)
- Actually meeting one of their members and asking (but chances might be small for that)
I would just like to see a another person's opinion on this to get a rough-edged idea. The main course would be to know HOW my character could really message them.
If you click on the image in the Event Bar, between the current time and where it says "Logged in as:", that looks like an envelope (should be 3rd from the left), you access what's called the Darkness Message (or DM) system, where you can send messages to any other player as long as you know their handle.
I'm not sure if that answers your question or if you were looking for more of a "how would I roleplay this action", which is really more up to you personally. DMs are also often seen as both In-Character (IC) and Out Of Character (OOC), depending on the content you want to send.
