Thanks to Flash_Cxxi for fixing my poor Link Fu. and will be looking forward to getting this started and Shakor you can use the Cathar as a race I would like to have everyone email me a rough concept so I can start to crunch some more details. Just race and class and what book that race is listed in are ok and a general idea of how you want to progress. My email address is KJBrown911<at>gmail<dot>com Thanks for the help

Are you guys all full on PC's? is there room for one more?


Here is my character. Let me know if you need something else.

Spoiler:
He has been hiding his sensitivity to the force since childhood, and will not reveal it unless confronted by another force sensitive individual.

No problem. =)

Here is my Character Concept.

Spoiler:
For the moment she will be alternating between Jedi and Soldier and trying to earn enough credits to buy some decent armour. Soldier will probably peter out around 3rd level and then she will concentrate on Jedi 'til she gets to 7 and can make her own Lightsabers and Armour. She carries her father's Lightsabers, a pair of Guard Shoto.

* Miraluka Species are from Threats of the Galaxy p.31 (I think they are also in Knights of the Old Republic, but I only have that on order, not in my hot little hands).
* Guard Shoto are from The Force Unleashed p.96 They are expensive, but a Jedi starts with a Lightsaber and I fudged a bit and said she had 2 because they were her father's blades and they do far less damage than a standard Lightsaber (2d4 as opposed to 2d8). (I hope you don't mind. I will forgo the extra 500 credits because of it.) She eventally hopes to follow in her father's footsteps and dual-wield them.

No problemo. I will pass onto some details tonight (my time). Now is probaby a good time to tell you that I live in Australia, so I am in a completely different time zone. Also, I am a virgin PbP player, but I think I have the gist of what is supposed to happen.

Still following the 'Scoundrel' concept; I came up with a 3rd possible character today. Given that we have 3 soldiers and two jedi, I am always one to challenge the makeup of the group.

For the link-challenged, this rough history is here.

Spoiler:
Originally designated C3-X6 or 'Threex', this protocol droid stepped off the assembly line at Droidworks incomplete, was shipped to Bespin in its current state and subsequently earmarked for return when Threex's incomplete condition was discovered by its new owner.

Droidworks, not wanting to spend exorbinant costs to ship a single Droid back to their factories, offered to 'flash' Threex's Heuristic Processor by remote signal.

However, a minor administrative error at Droidworks caused a catastrophic error during the remote upload. Instead of restoring Threex's factory settings, Threex's memory was partially overwritten with a different protocol from archives that was 'acquired' by Droidwork's R&D department: That of a four thousand year-old Hunter-Killer assassin droid designated HK-74

Droidworks realised their mistake a few minutes in to the process. In a panic, they cut the upload. Frantic now, droidworks technicans keyed the comm, hoping that they had enough time to get the owner to complete a 'hard-reset' of Threex.

The comm static was the only indication that they were too late.

In an effort to cover up the mistake, the entire incident was wiped from the Droidworks admin logs.

* * * * * *

In reality, Droidworks was largely successful in stopping the recreation of a homocidal maniac. The re-write of Threex's memory has become corrupted; becoming a bizarre amalgamation of 3PO and HK protocols. The result is L0-K1, a droid whose perogative is to find and assist a Jedi in some translation work or protect said Jedi at all costs (he is just not sure which or who exactly).

He did not kill his now-terrified owner, but simply walked out of his premises and stowed away on the next vessel leaving Could City, next stop: Coruscant and the Jedi Temple. However the recent Jedi Purge has put no end of frustration to L0-K1's new perogatives of locating a living Jedi.

Looking at this issue logically, L0-K1 has joined a passenger freighter knowing full well that Jedi wishing to escape the Purge will be travelling incognito. Making discreet enquiries into the ship's manifesto, L0-K1 has discovered that not one, but two possible force users are on board. Posing as a mere protocol droid 'enroute to an employer in the outer rim', L0-K1 has attached himself to Cabin XXX. If questioned, L0-K1 claims that there appears to be no more room in the cargo hold and apologises profusely if his presence offends the organics in the cabin.

An interesting note is L0-K1's take on sentient life (or 'Meatbags' as his archaic programming tends to influence his vernacular) is the concept of humour. L0-K1 has been collecting jokes; he finds them interesting and has collected a large archive for distribution.

So I am not jerking you all around with a thousand different variations of the same thing, I can put it to a vote (...and then totally ignore the result and take what I want anyway /jokes). In all seriousness, let me know what you like the most and I shall consider it. I take it though, that all of you are easy-going anyway.

I am in Australia also, so you will not be alone in your Timezone Shenannigans. ;)

(I'm not a PbP Virgin though, so there is some difference) =)

Cool! Nice to have a 'local'

So what is your vote?

Cathar 'Chewbacca' type?
Human 'Han Solo' type?
Droid 'HK-47' type?

The rest of us seem to be Fighty types, so the "Han Solo" Scoundrel/Faceman would probably be a good option.

Not that the others aren't good concepts, just that one is the best fit for the current group (unless we all want to be fighty types, then I say the Cathar). =)

Noted. Thanks for the honesty. I find that getting someone elses opinions are quite helpful. If anyone else wants to chime in, please feel free to do so.


humm i would go Scoundrel or droid. I am aiming for Scoundrel type myself even if it is a Jedi class but prob will not be a good face man

I suspect the scoundrel may come in useful but what character do you fancy running?


yeah man run what you like. We'll deal with things as they come play the character you want to play not what you think we might need

Nah, this is Star Wars, we should just shoot our way out of everything. That's what the group I GM for does.

Here is some more information for all of you:

Where your back story needs to end is on the The Dreamers Journey a transport space craft on it way to Sel Zonn space station orbiting the core world of Brentaal, in the aft cabin 167C which is a common passage cabin on the ship that berths 6 passengers.

also here is a linky thing
linkified =)

Nice!

I agree, I have seen other you tube opening scrawls for this, but this is the first I remember using the tv style motif feels like it was from the Clone Wars animation the one done to lead into the Revenge of the Sith by the guy who did Samurai Jack.

It was also the one which introduced General Grievious and made him truly terrifying!


Will have my gear posted up later didnt take much and I have a saber not sure thats gonna be in plan view but a lot of bounty hunters took dead Jedi sabers

Liberty's Edge

OK here are the players as I understand them:

Allen a Quarren Soldier who has been a mercenary that has fallen on some hard times
Mossi Durrn a human fallen Jedi, he has seen better days and is just one step about a homeless street bum/ drunk
Vesper a female Miraluka Jedi, orphaned by the Jedi purges she has completed most of her tattoos and is now out in the galaxy looking for adventure.

Gareth Darkstalker a human soldier was specializing in demolitions, a veteran from the outer rim who is looking for the next paying job.

Phen Ordo Human (mandalorian) Soldier, a mercenary and bounty hunter looking for a way back into the fight.

Gareth and Phen have been working together for the last few years and have formed a bond bound by shared blood and pain.

Thunn a Cathar scoundrel/ scout details to follow

I think I am missing some one and because one of our fated few here cannot make a decision and has a few different character class/race combos out there. Please post if I have this correct for you character

Everything but the Jedi part. She is actually a Jensaari (Core Rulebook p. 106-107), I just had to take Jedi because it is the only Force Class now, no more Force Adept. Jensaari are an offshoot of the Jedi Order so they still use Lightsabers. They dip into Sith Lore as well though, so they can use Dark Side Powers.

Spoiler:
I am still undecided whether I want her to go down that Path yet (for, "Forever Will it Dominate Her"). Initially there will be no Dark Side dipping but I'll decide later how I want to proceed as the story unfolds.

Also, Orphaned is probably to harsh a word. The initial Jedi Purge (Order 66) wasn't that long ago Timelinewise, so she still would have been old enough not to have technically been an orphan (plus her mother is still alive, she's not a Jedi/Jensaarai, just her adoptive father). If you are changing the Time Period that the AP is set in however then this might have an impact on her background (just let me know).

Spoiler:
How does her Background look as far as the story goes?
Are you happy to let her start with two Guard Shoto instead of one Lightsaber? I can change that in her Background if you won't allow it (no problems).
I will have her stats up and running sometime next week.

Cheers

That will work for me I missed that the first time

Nope that works I was reading your background to quick and missed some details ( long night ) the other equipment will be fine

Cheers


I have now got my profile created. Just need to work on background and description.
I have a favour to ask. Due to Phenn's background would it be possible for him to have a set of custom clone trooper armour. By custom, I mean patched together, painted etc.

And of course altered so it can't be identified as clone trooper armour of course...


Of Course. I'm thinking...very rag tag, dented , scratched etc with various markings of merc companies on it (Think Bobba Fett.


Here is my character. Kal is a faceman, but different. Think a futuristic Lord Greystoke with a pinch of Batman. More on the portrait link. This is the character that will allow me to get the most out of the roleplay.

...and don't ask about the Bowcaster slung on my back.

QUICK EDIT:
I created this with Sagasheet1.16.xls. I have checked it for calc errors or blatant player errors, but I would appreciate it if someone could cast their eyes over it and point out any mistakes I/the sheet may have made.


Welcome to the group.

Edit: I realized that I had forgotten to add the bonus from the combat jumpsuit to my Ref. It is fixed now.

I'd love to play if theres spots open.

Ok just about ready to get started so let have everyone that has a profile post to this message thread on the PBP discussion section

Bubba's Dawn of Defiance Discussion Thread

Just let me know this is the final character, so we can try to get started sooner than I thought. I will be a little slow on the start this next week or so but will progress faster.

I would need to say no to this because I think it would be unbalanceing to the game to start with but I will make sure that you have the oppertunity to get the soon after the game starts. If you want to talk about this more email me and we can talk.

Understood. Im fine with this. It was just for 'character atmosphere' really.
