Escorts to the end (Inactive)

Game Master william Nightmoon

Star-Wars Campaign, you are hired to escort a noble back to her homeworld, but things don't turn out like you wanted...


51 to 95 of 95 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

Just a warning. Since I don't have the credits to spend on a heuristics processor, I'l probably spend the combat round trying to parlay with a foe. :)

For the DM:

As part of my background, can I have my master be a rival noble who used contacts within the republic to allow me to escort the republic noble, but in reality, I simply gather as much info as possible about my masters rival.

Granted, it's not calculating so it's not a huge deal, it's just confusing to look at "why is your level or armor bonus 0"?
This is an excellent character tool for Saga edition : file

yeah don't have Microsoft Office, and for some reason Open Office freezes when I try to open that. :(

go ahead. great backstory, just adds RP opportunity.

Sovereign Court

note about the noble your escorting:

she is a farghul(like a cat person), who is quite vain and is very rich. she is also young, and the oldest heir to an even larger inheritance. if her father dies she gets quite the sum of credits, but if she dies, her step-brother gets the cash.

her step-brother is also a farghul, but is much older than her, and very poor(for a noble). just something to think about

What about dark side? While I don't plan to go full cackling Emperor (I'll spend Force points to reduce my score if I have to, rather than going full dark), is it okay if I'm not a saint (especially since my character has no Jedi training to be like "There is no emotion, only peace.")

Other than that question, I just need to pick my 3 Force powers and my talent (trying to decide if I want to take a scoundrel talent or a force talent at first level)

Sovereign Court

not being a jedi, there really is no difference in the light and dark side for you. however, you can still gain darkside points. i am allowing you to become jedi later on, but you have to have promise as a jedi (force sensitivity helps). however, you have to follow the rules of the dark side whether or not you are a jedi. you cannot use light side powers unless you have no darkside points. in my game, darkside points can be taken away(however they cannot be reduced to 0 one you have them) with good deeds.

Dark Archive

Well, yeah dramatic heroism... and I really have no interest in becoming a jedi (at least this character) I'm more into the other traditions (my favorite is sadly not available in this time period) so force adept is the route I'd take.

And wait, that thing about not being able to use light side powers is that something you are changing, or did I misread? I know it was that way in Revised, but the saga book just says you can't spend force points on light powers if you have dark side points, not that you can't use them?

And you mean you can never ever ever go back to 0, or just not with minor good deeds?

Sovereign Court

you can use light side powers, and you can loose darkside points, but I'm only allowing you to change your darkside score back to 0 if you do something TRULY good. using lightside powers is otherwise up to the rules.

Ah, okay yeah. That makes sense.

I am interested, but I do not have the necessary materials. I've been looking to play a Duro Pilot in Edge of the Empire, I wouldn't mind switching the character to Saga Edition. Would there be room for such a character in this game?

yes there is, i can PM you a link to the books, but you'll have to ask me to share them with you on google :)

about that processor, hero droids begin play with one of those , a vocabulator, two arms, and a form of movement. they get an additional 1000 credits to spend wherever they want( in terms of being a droid that is...attached weapons,more arms, armor, extra forms of transportation and such). you don't need to worry about the processor.


Thanks for the clarification!


Has somebody already claimed the Jedi?


Are you allowing Force Prodigy and Tech Specialist?


4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 4, 3) = 14 13
4d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 4, 1) = 16 15
4d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 4, 3) = 9 8
4d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 5, 4) = 15 12
4d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 3, 2) = 16 14
4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 2, 4) = 12 11

I'm looking to play a young Zabrak native of Coruscant named Kalimir "Kal" Volo. He has dreams of following in his father's footsteps as a notorious starfighter pilot, yet he can't seem to get himself off of Coruscant. He's taking up the job as an escort in hopes of leaving his dead-end Taxi job and hopefully explore life.

I am undecided on class. I could easily see the character as a scout, soldier or scoundrel. One thing I'd like to include, if GM allows it, is that Kal is force sensitive. I don't see him being a force user, per se, but the force manifests itself in his quick reaction time. Think of how Anakin was able to be such a great podracer and pilot with very little experience and you've got the right idea.

I'll have crunch posted as soon as I get some free time. (just throwing this post up now to show that I am officially in the running :D)

Yes, and Yes

as for force sensitivity, go ahead.

I don't think anyone's claimed the Jedi role yet,

as for everyone: make sure to have submissions by Tuesday. since i'm closing up recruitment on monday, i'll give you all one extra day to flush out your characters. Plz give me a crunch and i'll have the full party selected by the end of teusday.


Volo, Zabrak Scout:

"Volo Kalimir CL 1Medium Zabrak scout 1
Init +4; Senses Perception +7
Languages Basic, Zabrak
Defenses Ref 15 (14 flat-footed), Fort 13, Will 14; 0
hp 24; Threshold 13

Ranged blaster pistol, heavy -1 (3d8+0)
Base Atk +0; Grp +1
Abilities Str 8, Dex 13, Con 11, Int 12, Wis 14, Cha 15
Special Qualities Heightened Awareness, Superior Defenses

Possessions heavy blaster pistol, half-vest, concealed holster, tool kit, power pack

Not an optimized character at all but oh well! Volo is meant to be a rather green character who may be in way over his head, but the experience will hopefully allow him to grow.


Whoops, gave my submission too many feats. No mighty throw for Fassa.


Rolling my credits:
Credits: 3d4 ⇒ (3, 2, 4) = 9 x250=2250

Can I take options from Galaxy of Intrigue? I can send you the book if you don't have it yourself


knowledge(bureaucracy:DC 10): 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11
trying to get a slugthrower pistol, cost for the license is 12.5, rounded to 12 credits.
EDIT:Accidentally used +1 instead of +3. fixed.
EDIT:Other rolls

knowledge(bureaucracy:DC 15(for the half-vest(from scum and villainy))): 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (15) + 3 = 18

just need fluff, character sheet link in profile.

yes, that would be nice if you sent that to me :)

@legoguy: nice profile pic for your jawa, it acually looks like one :)

Sovereign Court

recruitment is officially over, however anyone who has showed interest/submitted a character will have until tomorrow to post it here, thank you :)

by the way, the links should work now...

i fixed the problem with them.

Currently completed submissions:
legoguy4492: Kibitja- Jawa Scout

Tangaroa: Fassa- Gungan Scout

Echoes: Volo- Zabrack Scout (changing to Scoundrel)

if you need more time I may be willing to extend the Due date till Wednesday. by the way, i Don't mind that you all are choosing scout, at least one of you is going force adept, and we also have a droid coming so... hey, Ultrageek, if your droid goes soldier that would be nice... or scoundrel.


Wow, didn't realize there'd be so many scouts. I'll switch Volo to a scoundrel. The skills seem more appropriate anyway.

good idea. two scouts are fine, the HP helps and if we get a soldier we can have a tank... a jedi would help too, but no-one has submitted one yet :)

oh for everyone, assume the answer to your question is yes, unless you believe it may be no. most third party stuff is allowed as long as you give me some reference. however if your question is something like "can i be a rancor?" then it is obviously no.

i'll give you till 12 noon mountain time(that's 1:00 central) Wednesday.


Ok done. Just need my backstory. Sorry, scoundrel would fit my character better :)


Done everything!


I found this website that is a Star Wars Saga RPG Wiki. It looks like it is just starting. Last work done on it was a few months ago.

Dark Archive

Yeah I'm almost done I think, just need to double check that I got everything right (New to Saga, only played Revised) and I'll be playing a shi'ido scoundrel that is force sensitive.

Here is a link to a printed version of the fillable PDF I used (note it has a flaw, won't let me change my Fort level value, so it should be 1 not 0) and i also need to do equipment. Also, being a shi'ido that height and weight is technically variable, that's just her current 'preferred' form posing as a human or near-human (which depends on if I find a really cool but not totally human looking avatar I want to use, then she'll be a 'unknown near-human race' like Aurra Sing is :P )

As yet unnamed Shi'ido scoundrel

Sovereign Court

it appears we have a group, just enough... all ya'll made it. you're all good. I'll make a discussion thread so you can stat creating the connections between your characters.

all of your applications are accepted and great! Zelda just needs to name the Shi'ido.

Sovereign Court

Roc Trellian, Jedi Padawan is done.

Sovereign Court

Do we choose a destiny or do you assign us one?

I'm not doing destiny... that's optional.


Haven't had the chance to remake Volo, but after seeing all the scouts and scoundrels, I will go with a soldier, but stick with the same concept (force sensitive pilot).

Edit: on second thought, with the concept I have and the abilities scores I rolled, it's probably best I stick to scoundrel, if it's not too detrimental to the game. I will have the remade character posted tomorrow after work.

Sovereign Court

Star Wars Saga encourages multiclassing too, so you can also be a scoundrel/soldier.


forgot to roll for credits!
