It is a dangerous time for the Republic. The Treaty of Coruscant and the Sacking of Corsucant has caught everyone off guard. A dangerous Cold War exists between the two major powers in the Galaxy -- the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.

Okay, concepts so far:

/w Sheets

  • Kath Andak -- Your go to guy for vehicle modification (scout); played by Sun Shadow
  • Neimodian Slicer unnamed information broker (Scoundrel); played by Helaman.
  • Nyla Soresu: Arcanian(f) Jedi researcher and scientist. Played by Tomcatmeow.
  • Harald Munk: Human (m) Jedi duelist hopeful. played by DragonBelow.
  • Jeren Fel -- Your Arkanian pilot and gunslinger (Scoundrel); played by LackofFocus.

    Characters /wout Sheets.

  • A Soldier played by Camris.
  • Jedi Shadow -- a Miralukan who is trained in the Jedi Council's and Republic's Intelligence force. He's your Impossible Mission Force guy -- no clear concept yet. -- played by Dewn mountain.
  • Unnamed Jedi played by Shady Motives. Only concept I got from him is one thought: "I MUST BE A JEDI!"

    --------------------

    So far those are the concepts I have.

    Just remember, a Master cannot train two Padawans, so I'll have to create another Jedi Knight or Master if the campaign has 2 Jedis.

    Background

    Spoiler:

    Nyla was born on the Arkanian homeworld and was a very quiet, reserved child. So much so that her force sensitivity wasn't discovered until her 6th year. Her Arkanian parents were scientists by trade, her father a doctor and mother a botanist. They resented the corporate greed and lack of ethics that their planet and species were known for. Nyla inherited her parents idealism and even as a child was compelled to learning and acts of compassion. Once Nyla's connection to the force was discovered, her parents saw it as a ticket away from the life of greed and corporate toil that they had been unable to escape. Although Nyla cared deeply for her parents, her cool demeanor and rationale even at the age of six made her transition into the life-path of a Jedi on Tython largely painless. There she proved herself to be a very talented researcher in a number of fields and a graceful combatant. She is eager to learn more and to help the state of the galaxy in anyway she can, while simultaneously carrying the chip on her shoulder of giving the Arkanian's a legacy besides that of corporate greed and unparallelled arrogance .

    Personality/ Appearance

    Spoiler:

    Nyla is calm and collected, almost to the point of being cold. Despite outward appearances, she is deeply compassionate and hopeful. She believes she can make a difference in the world and at this point has no reason to believe she will not, an example of the occasional arrogance that plagues her. She is naive, but well-informed. She knows well the cost of war and the dark state of affairs in the galaxy, but has only read about these things, and is as of yet, untested.

    Nyla herself is a plain young woman, moderately tall at around 5'8" and whip thin with a soft face that shows her youth. She bears the white pupiless eyes of Arkanians as well as the stark hair of the same color and four-digited fingers. Her hair is around mid-back length and flows freely most times. She wears a deep blue tunic, pants and robes,with the addition of a leather utility belt and boots. She carries her self with a wispy elegance, appearing as though she might me carried away by a stiff breeze despite her natural confidence.

    Note: Headshot: Imagine Rooney Mara without pupil/irises, and with white hair.

    Looks great. I'll have to see what others come up with before making a final decision. :) Spazmodius wants to audition, so I have to see what he's come up with.

    INFORMATION ON A DEADLINE

    I'd like to see finished character sheets by this thursday. :) Enough people have dotted their interest, so if you are serious about joining this game, even those that say: "I MUST BE A JEDI!!" should have their character sheets by then.

    When the cast is picked, I'll be making Jedi Masters for those who will be Jedi. If you want to play a Jedi, you have competition so be sure to show how dedicated you will be to the game; and . . .

    It better be a character George Lucas would love to film, or one the Authors you know would love to write!

    After the characters are selected, one of the Jedi will become a Padawan to Jedi Master Seth Jaran. He'll be tough and stern, as you met him in the Campaign Background. But he will train that Jedi into a Good Jedi Knight. The other (if there is another) will meet another Jedi Master who will train you who will have a different style. Both Jedi Masters will be unconventional.

    That is, they will act as the Group's guardians and be a source of missions until the Jedi have passed their trials on Tython, and built their own lightsaber. Probably at the first Season Finale. After that, the Jedi Masters won't be a factor and the group will take missions from other sources -- including the Jedi Council.

    Hey there Elton
    Got.in late last night and found that I do have the books. I'll.get a.couple of concepts up.tonite.
    What is your opinion on a droid hero? Got a partial concept rattling around in my head.

    Depends on the droid.

    A walking power battery is just a walking power battery. If you are going to play a droid hero i can offer some possibilities.

    During the Cold War, both the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic were experimenting with Replicants, which range the gamut from a human synthoid (Commander Data from Star Trek: the Next Generation), to the Terminator model from The Terminator movies, to the Replicants in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? or Bladerunner. After the Cold War, problems with Replicant droids developed as their AI systems were far too advanced, and a Law was made to prevent them from being created.

    The information for Star Wars Replicants are in one of the Campaign guides, I'm trying to find the Near Human droid model -- ah, Threats of the Galaxy, page 152. So, by the time of the Rebellion Era, people forgot how to make them and it seemed like a new discovery when they made their first synthoid (Guri, see page 152 in Threats of the Galaxy) in Millennia.

    Snythoids (like Commander Data) and true Replicants (like Roy Batty and Pris) use the Replica Droid Species traits on page 153 of Threats of the Galaxy. The terminator model uses the model specs programmed for assassination or battle. The living liquid metal droid of Terminator 2 is currently beyond the technology of the KotOR, Classic, or Legacy Eras. Or in other words Star Wars scientists have a problem with making droids purely out of liquid metal.

    Otherwise, you may pick and create any droid you wish. Just use some common sense. A walking battery is a walking battery. An Agromech droid is an Agromech droid.

    however, the protocol and astromech droids during the KotOR era look significantly different from the R-type and C3-type droids in the Classic Era. However, their functions are the same. To create a T7 Astromech or a C2 protocol droid -- you use the R2 or C3 models as a base, but you use the T7 and C2 body frame from the MMO. The programming and base personas would be exactly the same. If you like, you can create your droid to be a servant of one of the other players.

    It's an excellent write up, Spaz. If selected, I suggest you play the droid as thinking as if he is entirely human -- like Data's mother did in TNG. When the truth comes out, it will be a surprise to everyone.


    Thanks Elton, glad you liked it.
    That's the direction I was headed.

    That's a good start. Have you decided on a destiny or background yet?


    it's nearly Thursday on the east coast : 3

    the applications all look great, this suspense is killing me, haha


    Yeah, tomorrow I'll compile them all. :)

    ---

    And I'll be working on further production design. :)


    OK, finished.

    Man, I hate first level. I'm equipped like a mall cop.

    Haven't decided on a destiny yet.


    Iona Liaan, Zabrac noble out to make some credits at your service.

    Crunch is in her profile, she's not very optimized but I think she'll be fun to play.

    Iona is headonistic and brash, confident to the point of beeing full of herself. She's the oldest daughter of a wealthy merchant family from the Zabrac homeworld and is out to prove to her family that she's got what it takes to run the family (and it's fortune) rather thatn her other siblings.

    I want her to start out with a ship so I thought that her backer might be her grandfather who gave her his old trading (read; smuggling) ship. True to the zabrac saying; survival of the fittest, it's battered, old and possibly hazardous at times.

    Her basic concept is that of a smuggler. I'll write out a fuller description and background this evening (GMT).

    Grand Lodge

    I think I'll choose Redemption as a destiny

    Silver Crusade

    Listen, destinies aren't all that important in the way I'm running this game. Your characters' destiny in the Force is what they make it. So destiny is spice.

    Okay, I'm just compiling characters right now. :)

    So far we have:

  • Iona Liaanp. Zabrak noble who is a descendant of a shipping magnate. She has a chip on her shoulder and wants to prove her worth by smuggling and not through the family business.
  • Sgt. Tremersynn Anovus. in the Republic Army. A non-commissioned officer, his experience on Quesh caused him to vow to never let his friends die again.
  • Thollus. A noble from one of the planets of the Core, who awoke on Nar Shaddah just 30 days ago in an abandoned building. He thinks his answers to the past can be found on Tython, the home world of the Jedi.
  • Harald Munk. an aspiring Jedi Duelist. Not much is known about Harald except that he has trained with the Jedi since he was very young, about three to four years of age.
  • Jeran Fel. A member of an Arkanian slave race, he became independent really quick and is looking for new opportunities when he escaped his master. Needless to say, his former master might be looking for him.
  • Chal Haako. Chal is a Neimoidan. He's lazy, he's cowardly, etc. etc. However, he has become proficient in data procurement and information exchange. He's one of the best slicers (re: cracker or 'evil' hacker) available. He is building a fortune on slicing through the Holonet.
    [*} Nyla Soresu. Arkanian Jedi who was trained "late" as a Jedi. She is a Jedi scientist and scholar who is aspiring to be a Makashi duelist.
  • Kaath Adak. And last, but not least, there is a Zabrak scout named Kaath Adak. A wandering refugee, he has talents with mechanics, piloting, and has a bit of a "knack."

    That's everyone who has applied. I'll be making a choice as to who will be cast and who will be cut sometime later. :)


  • "Cowardly? No no no. I am simply... *blink* a survivor".


    Nute Gunray thought he was a survivor.

    Grand Lodge

    A bit ahead of Chal's time... besides this time I have the Jedi behind me and the Sith in front of me. I'm hoping that it works better than it did for Nute.

  • Man, was this hard. Okay, all of you produced good characters. But eight characters is too much. Eventually, if I kept all eight, you would have to be split into two separate campaigns. and i'm not running 3 at the same time. :)

    Those of you who aren't selected, save your characters for another time. Perhaps another game master will be inspired to run with the same Idea I have. Please note, the choices I've made had nothing to do with science.

    • Nyla Soresu
    • Chal Haako
    • Kaath Adak
    • Thollus
    • Iona Liaap

    Those players who had their characters cast for the audition should move the discussion to the Discussion thread for this campaign.
