Well, I suppose I could attempt it. Some more setting info (as in which events it occurs near to in the timeline) would be helpful in background creation, but I can always edit that, I suppose. How long are students supposed to have been at the academy? I assume not first year, but not terribly advanced either.


Name: Vanas

Species: Falleen

Why you came to the academy: To learn what makes the Jedi so controlled and strong

Little bit of background history: Like many young Falleen nobles, Vanas went on a "pilgrimage" through the galaxy to gain a better understanding of why his race and culture are superior. On this journey he witnessed an individual who epitomized the control and discipline held in such high regard by his people; this individual was a Jedi, and was [i]not[/i] of his species. She was a human, a race regarded by the Falleen as inferior because of their lack of control over their emotions. He even tested the Jedi with the pheromones that had not yet failed to gain him the passions of any human female. She had remained cool and made him feel foolish. Her existence would not fit into his worldview, so he asked her to teach him more about the Jedi. She sensed the ability to use the Force in him, and so sent him to the academy.

A brief paragraph showing you Saber skills and your ability to describe:
(He probably will not be this good in the story, unless he has been there for quite a while)

After years training, Vanas felt completely comfortable with his lightsaber. The hilt of his saber felt perfect in his hand; the soft hum felt as familiar as a life-long friend. His sparring partner was not quite as experienced, and did not seem to enjoy the art of combat as much as Vanas.

Predictably, in his desire to get the match over with his partner attacked first, closing the gap between them in two quick steps and bringing his blue saber up and then down in a two-handed chop. Blocking the attack with his green saber above his head, Vanas crouched and in a sinuous movement swept his right leg across at his opponent's shins. His opponent jumped back, and as he did Vanas brought his leg back and raised to a half-crouch, and then stepped forward in a fencer's thrust at his opponent's left hip just as he landed. His partner barely parried the attack, akwardly twisting his saber in his left hand to knock the low attack aside. Using the force to aid him, Vanas launched off of his bent right leg into a flip that brought his saber up along his friend's side, forcing a roll to the right. He came down behind and to the left of his partner, and extended his arms while holding the saber at his partner's back. His opponent whirled to parry, bringing the saber around in perfect position, but Vanas had anticipated. With a flick of the wrists, his saber went up, going over the tip of his opponent's saber, and came down at his opponent's neck. His sparring partner grinned in good-natured defeat, and they deactivated their sabers.

ordinarily i would hit up this shit instantly. afterall, its frikkin star wars but id like to make some comments

first off, Benjmn is right. you DIDNT give us much in the way of details, i dont mean to give you crap or anything bro but our characters could be discussing the galactic civil war or clone wars and then we find out revan barely ended the mandalorian wars like last week so there could be problems there and to prevent conflicts and confusion its best that these problems be taken care of prior.

not only that but you failed to tell us anything about where this supposed academy IS, what it is like, how large it is and how well staffed it is. we dont know whether its on yavin, some random space station or part of the jedi temple on coruscant, i mean we could treat it like some hardcore academy and then we realise this place is supposed to be hidden or something....if there is a post in the rp ideas section then a link to it could definitely be of use.

i would also like to ask some questions about the rp itself, the name gives the impression that the rp is focused mainly on the life of students of a jedi academy but is that all? i ask because i dont usually like to rp as jedi or sith, alot of the people who rp in star wars these days only want to be some new ultimate jedi or some badass bounty hunter or something. i rp as soldiers, pilots and occaisonally smugglers because it brings something new to most star wars rp, the concept of an average joe. not everyone in star wars had the force and regular guys, in wars, had to make do with tactics, rocket launchers and tanks. dont get me wrong, jedi are totally badass but when in rp's all your buddies are jedi, they talk about jedi, all the quests are jedi related, the character development involves jedi-related things and the only apparent goal is to become a BETTER jedi....you get pretty tired of the jedi/sith routine. im just asking, can we expect to see a fairly expansive rp here or is it more of the same linear stuff we've had to deal with in the past.

a related question, what are you planning for this rp? i mean, if all the rp involves are people in an academy, the WHOLE rp....well thats not very different from some random "school" rp except instead of learning math and english, people are learning how to kill each other with shiny swords that go through metal and to read minds, would the training of these academy students actually be put to the test as they fight some new threat to the republic or just to themselves or something?

it may seem to be quite abit to ask as far as questions go but its hard to determine whether something is worthwhile if i dont know anything about what its about, what i can do and where its going.

Still working on some details...wanted to know that people were interested


It is however on Coruscant


he name gives the impression that the rp is focused mainly on the life of students of a jedi academy but is that all


Pretty much but you have the freedom to turn Sith if you choose.



alot of the people who rp in star wars these days only want to be some new ultimate jedi or some badass bounty hunter or something


They don't get to start out badass...they have to earn it




if all the rp involves are people in an academy, the WHOLE rp....well thats not very different from some random "school" rp except instead of learning math and english, people are learning how to kill each other with shiny swords


it's not...Depending on your stats, when certain "events" happen (example: Sith invade the academy......A civil war starts on tatooine...stuff like that) You are somewhat limited to your abilities and must think about your actions.

i see, i didnt suggest your rp would be of low quality or anything i was just out to get information, it is in a large part. what i do.

i do suppose this rp isnt for me however, i have nothing at all against jedi characters but im just not much into it, add that to the fact that i would be surrounded by them. i prefer the less walked path of the average joe.

I'm kind of new to Star Wars RP'ing, but I think I know enough about the galaxy far far away to take part in this one. Just let me know if I'm not what you're looking for.

Name: An Coot (Pronounced "On Co-ot"

Species: Zabrak

Why you came to the academy: To learn to fight like the Jedi and gain a chance to explore the galaxy.

Background: An is a member of a proud family of Zabrak explorers. Having spent his entire childhood in the far reaches of space, his family pioneering new space and acting as cartographers for the other Zabrak of their colony, An just wants to escape. Having dreamt of becoming a fighter and pioneer, the academy is the perfect opportunity to reach those goals. It is said that none other fight as well or ever become as powerful as the Jedi, so the academy seems to be the perfect place for An. An is VERY cocky and independent and often has an I dont need anyone complex.

A brief paragraph showing you Saber skills and your ability to describe:
(He probably will not start off wielding two sabers in the story, unless he has been there for quite a while but he will always have a preference for half-length sabers)

The hilts of the two half-length light-sabers were beginning to warm in his hands having hummed into life only seconds before. He squared of against the three war droids ahead of him, careful to maintain focus on the Twilek to his right with her vibro-blade at the ready, just waiting for a mistake.
There was a flash as the twin disruptor rifles ahead hissed purple death his way. Placing his left foot further forward and planting his right so as to launch headlong, An lurched forwards into a curling roll that put him behind the foremost two droids, his arms out to his sides. Using the back of his head to roll forward, he lashed on either side to split the two droids in half, leaping forwards and bringing the sabers past each other to cleave the last droid in three pieces. He landed, turning towards the twilek
Ready? he said, smiling menacingly.

Name: Thorus Ashkar

Species: Mandalorian

Why you came to the academy: A student of history, Thorus found it wise to learn the ways of the men and women that defeated his people so long ago.

Little bit of background history: Throus was late to be found Force sensative. While unusual to allow an adolesent into the academy, he was admitted partially as a token of goodwill to the Mandalorians in the hopes that the Jedi and Mandalorians might one day be united. He still keeps his ansestor's vibroblade in his chambers at the academy, a reminder of where he came from. He does not know it, but the blade is incredibly old, dating back to the Great Hyperspace War where it was used by the Sith because of its cortosis edge. How it wound up an heirloom of the Ashkar clan is anyone's guess.

A brief paragraph showing you Saber skills and your ability to describe: When Thorus picked up a lightsaber, the Juyo form of ferocity was almost second nature as he often caught his instructors off guard with his near suicidal disregard for personel safety. Though he has been lectured all too often about his recklessness, he finds it difficult to ignore that fury. As if to somehow balance his passions, the more disiplined Shi-Cho and Niman stlyes remain beyond him, though Ataru is likewise almost second nature. Throus prefers to weild a single saber, using his other hand to balance and occasionally punch is opponent

Name: Ailyn Seen

Species: Human

Why you came to the academy: Growing up on Mabus, Ailyn became intrigued with the Jedi way, because of a small Jedi Trading Post set up their. Saw a chance at adventure and a way to svae her father from his , illegal choice of occupation; smuggling.

Little bit of background history:
Grew up on Mabus, almost as far as you can get from the core worlds. Plagued with pverty and crime Syndicate rule, her mother was killed, and father forced into smuggling. She however was left to doing small jobs here and their. Hwoever soon the Jedi set up a small trading post on the planet, and emplyed her as a janitorial staff. Slowly she began to become more and more intrigued with the JEdi way until finally she chose to pursue it and was taken from her father to learn teh ways of teh force, and eventually free her father from his binding contract to smuggling.

A brief paragraph showing you Saber skills and your ability to describe:
Being of Age 17 she is a littel old for the order to accept, however, in a wierd turn of events the Council agreed, seeing much promise in her, and granting hert he title of Padawan. Having mastered the basics of Saber combat, and only the basics of force use, she is a typical padawan learner and followers her masters lead, to teh best she can. However she tends to be sorta mischievous and very adventurous, almost too much, for the narrow Jedi Path.

Mablung_Surion

Name: Mablung Surion

Species: unknown, appears human

Why you came to the acadamy: he wishes to train to take his mind off his forsaken past.

A little bit of background: Found by Mara Jade Skywalker wandering the cold wastes of Hoth, her intial reaction to him was perplexing, how could one humanoid survive this weather. After some careful tests his gift with the force was found to be very strong. In time he told her how he came to be on Hoth, after being cast from his homeworld in the unknown sector of space.

A brief paragraph showing your saber skills and your ability to describe: Mablung had only been in the academy for 6 months and already he showed promise. Even now as he stood waiting for his oppenent to signal he was ready he showed calmness that few 'younglings' as the older Jedi called them, especailly Anakin Solo, , could ever dream of showing. Without warning though his oppenet lunged at him, or at least where he was, mablung had performed and gravity defying sumersault into the air and landed behind and facing his oppenet, in one fluid movement he had drawn, ignited and held his lightsaber in the ready position. No sooner had he done that than his oppenet had swung round and attacked again, this time interlocking there lightsabers. Mablung saw that his oppenet was not at peace, and not at all in the right mind set for a Jedi, without second guessing mablung unlit his lighsaber and performed a back flip out of the deadly range of his oppenent. using the force he pushed him to the ground and turned to where the instructor was, he had been watching the whole time.
"You can stop now padawan." The fallen padawan seemed to become at ease and mablung looked unnerved.
"Sorry mablung, this was a test, you have shown great restraint, I shall report you to our most senior trainer, he will be pleased.
