The Sith Empire Discussion thread. A real discussion thread :-)


Shadow's Status

Sorry for the delay there, I was waiting till I saw all 5 PCs check in but it looks like Noss was waiting for me.

I will be shutting down the old thread tonight and am in the process of updating now. I will get at least one more round of updates in this weekend before I am away for a week. When I get back, my plan is to expedite the group back together sop we can start Chapter 2.

Alright and we are rolling once more!

Finally feeling better was sick as a dog for a while there. We're off once more!

Wait, hold on, back up. Did that human say that only Poppara had all the access to the Tion Cluster? Is that what he said?

Indeed he did. Now whether he knows what he is talking about is another story altogether ;-)

So...Zonnos may have lied to us when he offered us the routes through the Tion Cluster?

Maybe or he believed he could have gotten them from his father. Hard to say unless you ask him :-)

Of course, you have a comm message waiting that probably takes precedence!


Male Human Noble 8 | Fort 21, Ref 23, Will 26, DT 24, Condition 0 | HP 55/55 | Init +11 | Perception +9 | Force Points 7/9 | Dark Side 6

Yes, but I'm trying to figure out how to spin my response so I'm not saying we failed, but that we either haven't succeeded yet or that whoever gave us the information about Poppara got it wrong so they get blamed.

Cardis is in butt-covering mode, cause he's pretty sure he's gonna die if he doesn't do this right.

Well, it'll be tough to fact check Hutts so why not blame them?!

Hopefully no more site issues and RL has calmed down a bit for me!

Catching up now.


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

Huh...languages..was that part of character creation?


Female Lurmen Scout 6/Soldier 1/Medic 2

Lol, yep. You are missing 3 bonus languages.


Shadow's Status

Dosh sounds good :-)


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

Alright, slotted in a few languages


Shadow's Status

Taras has been MIA for some time with RL issues.

Shall we move on as there is no official word as to when he will return or wait until the new year?


Male Human Noble 8 | Fort 21, Ref 23, Will 26, DT 24, Condition 0 | HP 55/55 | Init +11 | Perception +9 | Force Points 7/9 | Dark Side 6

Let's move on with the plot, and keep him NPC'd for now. I've got him just as backed up in another game.


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

To all my games, I am going to be leaving tomorrow for a humanitarian trip to help those in need. I will only have access to my smartphone at the time, so I will not be able to post during this time. I estimate my return to the boards in the first week of January.

If I'm a player and you find this absence unfavorable, I understand if you remove me from the game.

If I'm the GM, and you'd rather leave the game if it stalls for this long, I understand your withdrawal.

In either case, message me and we'll get things sorted out.

But I do wish everyone Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Female Lurmen Scout 6/Soldier 1/Medic 2

Boiler plate message.

Due to the statistical certainty that at least one person in any of my games is celebrating some kind of Christmas thing... Merry Christmas.

I will be taking part in the long standing Jewish tradition of Chinese food and a bad horror film if anybody needs a suggestion on what to do. This years bad horror film, "Killer Clowns From Outer Space". A classic.


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

Back everyone! Hoping to resume Star Wars related activities.


Shadow's Status

Updating now, thanks again for your patience all.


Female Lurmen Scout 6/Soldier 1/Medic 2

After a protracted battle with cancer, a close relative of mine has passed. I will be sitting shiva for her and will not have much time to be online for the next week. If you need to bot me, please do.


Male Human Noble 8 | Fort 21, Ref 23, Will 26, DT 24, Condition 0 | HP 55/55 | Init +11 | Perception +9 | Force Points 7/9 | Dark Side 6

Sorry to hear. Hope everything is okay.


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

Sorry to hear that. I hope you have all the time you need.

Indeed, my condolences.


Shadow's Status

My condolences as well.


Female Lurmen Scout 6/Soldier 1/Medic 2

I am back, thank you all for the understanding. I will get caught up as quickly as possible.


Female Human Soldier 4, Scoundrel 4

Glad to have you back.

It’s pretty late at night as I am writing this. I’ve been through a significant amount of struggles through the past two years (actually through the past 41 but especially the past 2). I’ve had worse stretches of time before but I believe that these past struggles were due to my own lack of maturity and self-awareness at the time those events took place.

Likely those events were necessary for me to experience to survive the events of the past two years and get through them as well as I have. Physical ailments, getting older and requiring more sleep, bankruptcy, and ultimately divorce. You know life is not going swimmingly when going to work feels like a vacation.

Regardless, when I first started getting involved in PbP on the boards it was a chance to play, finally! I’d been DMing for the bulk of the time that I’ve played table top that I was enjoying being able to be a player for once. Then with so many damn flaky GM’s I just started running games and well, things snow balled from there.

Life was fairly stable at the time the normal ups and downs. Then about two years ago, I started getting into PbP as a way to escape reality. Sort of the same ways drugs were casual and enjoyable for me as a teen and ultimately led me as close to suicide as I ever want to get again.

I am not saying that PbP has made me suicidal but I am saying that I recognize that I was using PbP as a coping mechanism to avoid a bad marriage. PbP did NOT lead to the failure of my marriage but it did contribute to my ability to tune it out.

I make a decent living but between bankruptcy and divorce I’ve little to show for it (well except for this killer book and RPG collection ). I could point the finger at my soon to be ex-wife but when you point one finger at a person, three more point back at you. I could have prevented things from becoming this bad and I chose not to. I did it, ironically, because I believed that if I had the marriage would have ended and ended badly, so much for best intentions. I am not going to second guess myself, what happened happened. As divorces go, this one has been rather amicable as we have put our daughter first and ourselves second.

Being married to someone who makes as much if not more money then you (depending on sales that year) places one in a position to “take it easy” when it comes to being aggressive about making money (well it placed me in such a position anyhow perhaps because making money does not move me).

Early on in my career I had an opportunity to become a premiere M&A Financial Services Tax Attorney in a Big 4 Firm. It’s a big deal and potentially a lot of money but I did not really want it because I knew I would be working a lot and traveling a lot. My ex agreed that I should turn it down as she did not want to be married to a workaholic and that was not who I wanted to be anyway. Nor do I want to be that person now. (In yet another twist of irony, she has become a workaholic, funny how things turn out).

I do not regret the decision though I do lament the loss of income that such a decision would have brought to me.

All of this rambling nonsense is leading to the point of this post, I need to work more. Not at my current job nor do I want to get a new job, I actually like being there as odd as that sounds (to me). I need to get a second and perhaps a third job, side gigs. At 41 about to turn 42 with no retirement and no savings for my daughters college, I can no longer hope that the ex’s business will come through as an investment plan. Even if it does, I will not be the beneficiary of that largesse. I need to make up for 11 years of being “comfortable” simply working.

Thus, it is with heavy heart that I am announcing that I will need to close down a number of the threads I run and withdraw from a number of the games I am a PC in.

I suppose this decision will not be a surprise to many of you as my posting rates have been abysmal since these events took a turn for the worse (in some respects the better to be honest) since Thanksgiving of 2017.

I am not generally a person that feels remorse or guilt but I do feel a level of disappointment with having to make this decision. I apologize for disappointing many of you who put work into PCs relying on my consistency as a GM/DM over the course of the past several years.

My plan had always been to run a hardcore dose of RPG’s until my daughter was a teenager and then, spend my free time writing the novel I had been working on since before she was born. I had hoped that over the next 9 years or so I could wrap up most of these campaigns and the few that remained would be more manageable.

Life has not worked out that way.

The good news is that I will still run several games but the current load is too much for me to handle in this transition. The further good news is that I believe this will allow for those games to move along much more quickly.

By tomorrow I will have made my decision as to which games I will keep and which I will shut down.

Thank you all for taking the journeys with me despite the lack of length or resolution of so many of them.

I will still be around just in a diminished capacity so this is not goodbye just a “be seeing less of you”.


Shadow's Status

Unfortunately, this is one of the threads that I will close down.

As much as I enjoyed running the game Saga has been a tough system to GM from the beginning for me as a novice to the game.

Thank you all for playing and I wish you all the best of luck in future gaming. I'll shut the thread down by the end of the week in case anyone wishes to discuss anything here in this thread or ask me any questions.

I especially extend my apologize to the new players as I know character creation for this campaign was not a 1, 2, 3.


Female Lurmen Scout 6/Soldier 1/Medic 2

Thanks for having us. Good luck and goodbye everyone.


Male Human Noble 8 | Fort 21, Ref 23, Will 26, DT 24, Condition 0 | HP 55/55 | Init +11 | Perception +9 | Force Points 7/9 | Dark Side 6

Thank you for running the game. Good gaming, everyone!
