Characters

Selika Roh - Active character. Krath sorcerer that includes many personality elements modeled after Alfred Bester from Babylon 5, especially in how she values Force users compared to the rest of the population.

Solus Gar - Trying to pull off somebody that's a Mando and not do it stupid. He went active in the Dark Jedi Brotherhood in 30 ABY, following the retirement of another character.

Xander Drax - A former Imperial Admiral, this fellow was a relic of the Emperor's Hammer days and the Tie Corps. After being used for a good long time, he was finally retired from use via character death as the new year tolled in 30 ABY. He was a fun character, but his time had come as he had too much baggage back story wise. He has since been used as a recurring antagonist in Clan Plagueis stories.

RL Stuff

Selika is a long standing member of the Dark Brotherhood, though not one who's spent most of that time actually active in the Brotherhood. Originally joining back in 1998, he stayed active through sometime prior to the existence of the Database and then went off to the Rogues. Following the Database's creation, he rejoined the Brotherhood as part of Clan Taldryan, and stayed active there until the Exodus. Having never been terribly active within the Brotherhood community specifically, and being very active in several other subgroups (Bounty Hunter's Guild, Imperial Senate, Tie Corps, etc), he chose to stay with the Emperor's Hammer.

Following the continuing deterioration of the Hammer, Solus eventually rejoined the Brotherhood in fits and starts. His activity was never huge, but following his expulsion from the Hammer he picked up some what. Following a time spent focusing on online Role Playing sims, he eventually returned and devoted his full attention to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood in 2008.

Image Quality

Yes, it's nice to have the best image quality possible. But, it also is a good thing to have the lowest file size possible to get that quality. Bandwidth doesn't grow on trees, and doing everything we can to minimize it makes the people that have to worry about that sort of thing happy campers. So, if the image doesn't require transparency, why use a larger PNG file? Use an optimized JPG to reduce file size. In one article alone the change from PNG's to JPG's netted a change in KB size for the affected images from 836kb to 120kb. You might say who cares about 700kb, but that's one article, and over several can add up. Then, with the number of times articles can be viewed... well, you get the idea. Bandwidth usage 12% of what we had is always good.

The following tools are essential:

  • PNGOutWin: For optimizing PNG files for size and compatibility. Be sure to select both compatibility options in the preferences. Some PNG implementations are more retarded than others, and PNGOutWin compensates for just about all of them. If you must (for the love of pete) use a PNG.
  • Xat JPEG Optimizer: For optimizing JPEGs singly or in batches.
