Sorry for the book, though I like story's and enjoy immersing PC's in them. Though here you as the players will have freedom to tell your own story. I wish to keep thing's flowing.

The game is based in STAR WARS The Role-playing Game Revised edition
Wizards of the Coast D20 system.

There are some limitations to consider:

1.0) First since it is based on the Rise of the Rebellion (after episode III) there are no Jedi's Active (meaning there are no 1rst LvL Jedi PC's allowed). Sorry I have seen that alot of you here enjoy Jedi PC's no problem but based on the Era all are gone. And their's none to train you. Although you may take the FORCE SENSITIVE feat at 1rst lvl (only) and should (though highly unlikely) a Jedi to be found and presuaded you might recive training. Keep in mind though the great Jedi Purge will be fresh in his (or her) mind, so they will not be very open at first.

1.1) Charater Creation is open to all other classes

1.2) Ability Gen (4d6) drop lowest ( befair here, lol I have had people post PC's with 18, 17, 18, 17 Scores... No.. Hey even better if your PC's is a bit flawed and RP's them out well I will award more XP for that)

1.3) Eveyone Starts out with one FORCE POINT

1.4) Prestige Classes are allow later in game (except Jedi), as long as you meet Requirments and Inform before you reach the level of your actions.

1.5) This is not a limition it is more of a Gameplay thing, You start out as a Free People's in the Galaxy whether you choose an Imperial role, or a Rebel is your choice(or stay freelance) . Just remember all can see post, so if PC's are playing both sides the Info is OOC: to the opposite faction.

Cool thanks, sorry for the restrictions but it's start all out on a clean slate that is fair. PS: I am new to this Forum though I have played PBP's at other sites, So until I get the total flow there may be a bump or two in the mechanics (Forum wise, not Role-Play)

I'm in. I'll wait to post a character for a few so, that i can compliment anyother players out there that are interested. I was thinking of playing an Info-broker if that can be done here...it would require some special attention from you Cydlexia. I'm not firm on that concept so, i'll wait and see if anyone else posts and work with them....possibly a Wookie mechanic as a concept although i've done that before.

Perhaps a fringer...kind of like a space trucker or salvager.

Cool Darth.... And to answer your question I would think play a ( Scoundrel, or Noble) then go in the back and use the Archetype TRADER as a mold picking skills and feats as such. (hint, all the scoundrel's Class skills are the same as the TRADERS I noticed) Instead of hard goods trade info... That help? I know the lowlevel Arche' is Diplomat 4, but use discretion and match up as close with a 1st lvl dude. Then on PC's sheet just write in Scoundrel (Info-broker) 1, or Noble (Info-broker) 1 I will understand what that means. As you progress use the Archetype to give you ideas as far as feat's and skills. that should work with out having to come up with a whole new Prestige Class package (unless that was the goal) no prob there, just E-mail me the info on what you make and I will review...

And of course a greese monkey Wookie always rolls good ( Winks, thinking of Darths last PC lol )... So things are still free, Oh I think I got Fukoh heading this way as well.. .
Later Cyd.

I'm leaning towards an info-broker. Either a Balisorian vice peddler and snitch or, a human. Leaning heavily towards the balisorian.

STR 15 FORT+0 (+1/5) Scoundrel 1
DEX 16 WILL+2 (+3) Noble 1
CON 13 REF +3 (+6)

I left the secret info up for you to decide...it might not be that important, it only shows i'm a scum bag. I'm going to have fun with this guy. Also the Krish is bringing me a stash...in game :assumed to sell and take my cut ( weekly profession roll) that's away to explain how i get my stuff...without naming a hutt or other organization yet.

04/14/2005 5:48 PM

Gotcha .....

04/15/2005 2:08 PM

The smile: roll of 16 + 4 cha +2 bluff= 22

The voice: roll of 11 +4 cha + 2 bluff = 17

[spoiler] this work here? [/spoiler]

04/15/2005 3:45 PM

This souds interesting I've played the d20, but I'm not seeing how this works in here, could you explain it because I would love to join in.

04/15/2005 5:29 PM

Pretty much make a character using the rules, submit it Cy and he looks at it. You should probably put a small background in there too. You write what you are doing, if a skill or attack test comes you state what youre doing, along with pm'ing your rolls...he tells you if you suceed....you write in your post somemore. It isnt really to different from what they do here only we have commercial game mechanics. Cydlexia with pm you the stuff he's laid down for rules.......Hope your guy doesnt mind hanging with a scumbag

04/15/2005 5:58 PM

Yeah Kolath I have though it through, and decide story is the key here( as you can see from the IC stuff)... But I like the Idea of Dice rolling it allow your range to Build a PC and get better as you develope... So I have a few Ideas for Rolling Rules... Combat is ran on a 6 round basis, use creativity to elaborate what you would do ( one round is 6seconds of game play, one turns is 10 rounds / one minute... So 6 rounds would be around 36 sec. )

I will Email you the Dice Rolling system if you like, and all you have to do is read my first ((OOC: post)) and follow those guidelines to create a PC. Then Post it OOC for review. Darth is a friend of mine So I know his PC's Background, (he handed me the paper that discribed) thats why he did not post. But for your PC give a short description of your self so I can expliot.. er.... explore your past :) (if you have the Galatic Campaign Guide, use it for your Appearance/Mannerism/Personality Traits). If you do not just Roll 3D100 and tell me your scores (34,52,12) OOC: and I will give you Traits to RP ( Some are cool some suck... But I will give more XP if I notice you Role-playing them well, I will not how ever penalize you if you do not. It's just a fun way to earn a few more to your tally. )

Exp... (Mannerism: Drums Fingers) He sits at the table waiting for Zirk, he's late as usual. Impatiently he drums his finger over the marble slab...

I hope to see you In game, and good luck in the Galaxy at large :)

04/17/2005 10:18 PM

Kolath I sent ya' an mail explaining the Roll System... Sorry for the Delay, I have been busy with other stuff.. Looking foward ta' having your story added to the Galaxy.... Later Cyd

04/18/2005 8:21 PM

Oh and Zirk... I am just posting some In Game stuff as a FYI... This goes for any who wish to play in Rise of a Rebellion.

First is a cool Tidbit in big Cities... (I.E. Cloud City) on the Streets there is Information Protocol Droid’s. Kind of like in KOTOR remember on all the worlds and ports there where those Info Droids to get tib'bit of general knowledge, well there in my game as well. They are also walking new stands, and have (somewhat) up to date info of the times.

Second... there are Info Terminals; you can Rent a Air-taxi, or just pull up the location of the nearest bar. ( you can even slice them for a little fun )

Third... There will be a lot of IC posts by me that do not really have anything to do with the game. ( Like the Thrawn and General Veers) not to say you couldn’t happen to stumble into the plots and scene's of the Original STAR WARS movies. They're more of a time line. So when your doing this, Luke and Han are escaping the Death Star or the Battle of Hoth rages on. It's just a cool way to find out what your PC would be doing at that time.

Last.... Feel free to make up stuff that would fit, this make the world of STAR WARS seem more real, Like walking into a bar and ordering a ( Gundark Drowner ) in stead of saying ( shot of whiskey ) The galaxies are endless so if you make it up it's probably out there. As long, as it's not something completely out of Character, or would give you invincible powers. Like Grabs the Imode'ium PQ Space modulator, with the power to disintegrate all living thing with in on Parsec of your position. It would be funny to read, but I would have to edit that. LOL and just an FYI a Parsec is a real Measurement I F%^king looked it up, (I Was bored)

Parsec: A Unit of astronomical length equal to 3.258 light-years.

I want you all to explore the other side of SW galaxies, away from all that Hero Jedi' verses Light side Dark side stuff. Get rich, own smuggling rings, become Lords of your lands, control others... Or just black-mail the Empire (or Rebel Alliance) for a Imperial Star Destroyer worth of Cred... :) Just remember there are other Organization’s out there doing the same thing, so watch where you fingers land, if you want them all intact. Later, and I hope this game catches on with others.. Have fun

04/25/2005 3:36 PM

At what level are you starting the characters at.

I've got one in the making but I need to know where to start at

04/25/2005 5:35 PM

Kolath you're PC will be at 1rst level... Zirk(Dath_Mac) has just now reached his second lvl. So we are still on ground level Basis... You will catch up in to time, I am XP heavy if I like the RP, and or Story Driving.... So

Lvl: 1
Force Point: 1
4d6 drop lowest: Attribrutes (reroll 1's only)
Class: Any except (Jedi)
Roll up Traits: from Galatic Campaign Guide

Thats about it, I have gone over all before so sorry for being redundent. Just a quick overview, Cannot wait to see you IC.. After you post let me look over your PC then I'll give you the OK... And start posting away. If there are any IC info you wish to know (that fits into your PC) who the local gangs are, what corporations are working, who nobles of intrest are, or where a good gambling hall is. (or any other thing that would fit for Character Development) just Mail me a question and I will try to answer it promptly.

04/26/2005 6:10 PM

nice to see another PC

04/26/2005 6:35 PM

Yeah Kolath the Vibro Blades for Simple Weapons is ok, as long as you can justify it. Like say something about you're father training you in Vibro-blade, or a person taught you the art of Vibro-blade... or something to that respect.. That will explain why you chose a complex (well more complex then Simple) weapon instead of the one given.

04/26/2005 6:50 PM

All Looks good Kolath. Go ahead and start posting IC, and Welcome to the Galaxy at large, path begins in Bespin, 12 Standard hrs a Day, 5,110 Days a year. "Cloud City" is a good start, Tibannapolis is a faulty ruin ruled by a Crimelord ( though you are more then welcome to live in the Slums there ) there is also "Coud City's" Port Town District, an under belly of Cloud City where most of the Smuggling, Bounty hunting, Gambling, and other Seedy occupations take place. See you IC
Late Cyd

04/28/2005 9:19 PM

Well.. I am posting to Inform all that I am taking off this weekend for Vacation. I got a week off so I tak'en it up. I will be gone from May 1st through may 8th. Play on and post on, write yourselves in as you see fit. Just don't piss anyone off to bad, I wouldn't want to come back to Dead PC's ..lol.. Nah just kidding! While I am out the Site will revert to Free-forum RPG, if any Action based skills have to be used. Well roll them out, if as a PC you honestly think the roll was bad, and it would have failed. Well sorry, RP it out as if its a failure. I will give Phat XP for that... it's Thursday I will post XP awards to-night.

05/09/2005 10:36 AM

Whazz up... back and breathing.... Man that vacation was needed. I see Darth has been busy while I was away. I will post XP in Mail, Kolath feel free write yourself into the story when ever you want.

The (Simple Weapon ) for (Vibro-blade weapon) switch is ok, just tell a little about it IC. Like yur dad or uncle, or military chief or who ever taught you how to use the blades. You spent your time training with Vibro-Weapons instead of simple. Just remember the taking away (Simple Weapons) means in Bar brawls you cannot break a glass and fight without taking a minus penalty... Simple Weapons Pro Means your PC has learn to adept any wooden stick into a club. (I.E. Chair, Stick, shard of glass, what ever it falls under simple weapon.) you take that away and suffer the -4 penalty when fighting with such. It sound stupid but if you have trained all your life with Vibro-Blades, swinging a chair around like a club is a little diffrent then swingging a Vibro-sword.

Well Later all

05/09/2005 1:13 PM
