This is a Star Wars RP BTW. :D lol EvilMouse came to me, Via PM, asking me to help him do a SW RP. I aggreed and helped him with the story and plot line, and we ended up with this. EvilMouse and I will be joint DMing it. Ladies and Gentlemen, the story.

Duty, and those who do it.

The Dark Times, the golden age of the empire, two differn't names, two differn't societies, one time period. The year is 2 BBY, the empire has established concrete rule over the galaxy, the Jedi Order has been exterminated, the galactic republic has been dissolved, things look bad for the galaxy. Bail Organa and Mon Mothma have avoided attention of the emperor and are secretly building up an Army. Slowly, they get larger and are more powerful. This is the story about the people that risked their lives for this cause, the most daring of people, the smugglers that dared smuggle resources into the Rebellion. Will they succeed? Or will the empire discover this young and vulnerable threat.......


Ok, that was the plot, now players will play a person on a small ship that smuggles valuable cargo into the infantile rebellion. We will allow only ONE jedi, because the jedi were killed off but some did survive the purge. For the jedi position, it is first come first serve.

lol- just wanted to make sure that was clear.

I'm your most loyal player anyway, you'd have to give me preference ;)


So it's like SW Serenity? heh

I'm just thinking though- actual Jedi who escaped the purge or more force sensitive? How viable is it that there is actually a Jedi considering Obi-Wan and Yoda had to go into serious hiding?

Not that I'm trying to turn you off the idea of having a Jedi ;)

Actually, stoic.......

If the Jedi survived the purge then I was thinking he couldn't be an all powerful super god-like master. The jedi would have to be more on the level of a padawan or low knight, but still. A low ranking jedi is a valuable asset.

Excuse me!
I was there from the beginning, man! Right there!
I had your back!Even when you were trying to blow me up with Sith ships I was there- and what was Stoic doing? Getting poisoned. Pah!

I was kind of thinking that for [i]her[/i], but then I was thinking how would she have managed to survive/stay hidden if half the Imperials are looking for jedi? ESPECIALLY if, as we will get to play in Force Unleashed (!!!!) Vader has his own apprentices running around looking for them?

Soooo... Stoic gunna be the jedi right? : P

Hey, so I played a Jedi who had one small moment of emotion, and it about got her killed. No need to hold that over my head forever.



The jedi would have to be more on the level of a padawan or low knight


Hmm...what was nanuk's quote from the one thread? Ah yes, I remember..."babysitting..." lol :)



How viable is it that there is actually a Jedi considering Obi-Wan and Yoda had to go into serious hiding?


They were around. Have to remember, Obi-Wan and Yoda were two of the most powerful, well-known Jedi at the time. Just be discreet, you'll be fine.


Think I'll try for gunner/ship's armorer. Let's me work with stuff that goes boom...:D I'll try to get a bio up this evening.

Ok, here goes nothing...

Name: Poylar "Po" Byrne

Age: 22

Species: Human (Tatooine)

Gender: Male

Role on the Ship: Gunner/ship's armorer

Weapon(s): DLT-20A blaster rifle with electronic sight and rangefinder
SoroSuub SSK-7 heavy blaster pistol (holstered on right hip)
Holdout blaster (holstered in left boot)
Vibroblade (sheathed in right boot)

Appearance: Poylar is a 5'l0" tall, muscular human. He has a fair complexion, red hair, and blue eyes. He wears a dark-colored battle suit that provides protection but allows for flexibility.

Background: Po was born and raised on Tatooine. The oldest son of a weapons dealer in Mos Eisley, he spent most of his free time shooting or setting off explosions in the desert, but quickly grew bored with life on the desert planet. He ended up joining the Imperial Forces as soon as he could and became a stormtrooper, specializing in heavy weapons and explosives. Plo was satisfied with the life he'd chosen until he witnessed first-hand the Empire's tyranny, defecting to the growing Rebel Alliance after observing the takeover of a remote settlement on Myrkr.

Po is a quiet person who keeps to himself mostly, preferring to divide his time between the armory and the range when not maintaining the ship's weapons systems. Respectful and obedient, he has an animosity towards the Empire that borders on obsession. He has told few people the exact reason for his defection, just stating that he "disagreed with Imperial operating procedures." The only visible signs that he was in Imperial service are his rifle that "acquired" while desserting and an Imperial medal that he's sometimes seen just holding and looking at. Believing that you can never have enough firepower available, he is rarely seen without his weapons, the only exception being his rifle while on ship.

Hey why not?

Character sheet

Name: Boomer (nickname)

Age: 23

Species: Zabrak

Gender: Male

Role on the Ship: Mechanic, landing party

Weapon(s): DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle. Stored in locker unless needed.

Single shot concussive grenade launcher

DL-44 blaster pistol (right hip holster)

Various explosive devices (belt and left leg holster)

Appearance: Boomer stands roughly 6'0 feet tall with a well muscled frame. He tends to wear dark colored clothing that match his skin tone. His skin is naturally a red hue with an extensive set of white tattoos covering most of his body. His eyes are a natural grey color. Perhaps the oddest part of his appearances is his head which is virtually bald but does sport a crown of small horns emerging from his head.

His style has him normally wearing a leather vest which is normally left open, a pair of dark leather pants which are tucked into high boots. He wears fingerless gloves on both hands.

As ship's mechanic he usually is wearing a tool belt of some sort, his weapons stored away until needed with the exception of his throwing knives.


Background: Born on Coruscant to a slave of a mother life hasn't always been the nicest to Boomer. Raised in the lower levels of the city he had very little chance to be a child while growing up. Since his mother was a slave Boomer also became one. Because of his race and their natural tendency to be bloodthirsty and violent the young man was trained to be something of an explosives expert. His ability to enter areas since he was a slave and his natural physical prowess made him an expert at planting bombs and blowing up his owners rivals.

Turning out to surprisingly gifted he managed to gain some popularity and began making his owner a good deal of money. Wanting a better life at least for his mother Boomer tried to strike a deal with his owner. Free his mother or he would refuse to fight. Not taking kindly to his threats his owner decided that he would free his mother, permanently with a blaster shot to the head.

Enraged Boomer managed to kill the man then and there. Of course an alien killing a human on the center of civilization in the galaxy meant only one thing. The Empire didn't really care as to why he did it, all they knew is that he would die because of it.

Fleeing the authorities it was only a matter of time until Boomer managed to wind up working with the Rebel alliance. Wanting to put his more violent past behind him he displayed a surprising aptitude for fixing machinery. When our heroic group needed a mechanic for their ship he was more then happy to lend a hand.

Boomer is somewhat of a loud mouth, when angered he will curse up a storm that would make a stormtrooper blush. Something of a hot head he doesn't hold back his opinion, no matter what kind of trouble it gets him in. His expertise tends to be in both machines and explosives, a dangerous combination if you ask me.

Iridonian


Iridonia is the planet, Zabrak is the species.

Second thing is the bowcaster, could you change that please? Bowcasters seem like wookie only weapons lol. Other than that, your fine.

Stoic.........you know i wouldn't say no to you :). NO......lol, not really. WELCOME ABOARD SOLDIER!!!

Just need to wait for Nanuk's character. Although in the check in and out place, she said that she would be gone until next tuesday. So, I was thinking that we could start and then pick her up later. I even have an idea for that as well.

nanuk
08/02/2007 9:01 AM


Iridonia is the planet, Zabrak is the species.


The homeworld of the species is Iridonia, but as they've spread a fair bit sometimes the ones from theire are referred to as Iridonian Zabrak, so that's possibly where confusion arose.



Just need to wait for Nanuk's character.


Well you never confirmed for me if I could be Jedi :(

If you've an idea for picking me up later that would be groovy, and take a little pressure of me (I've been awake since 5 after having gotten to sleep at 1, I've cooked enough curry and rice to feed 20 people- FOUR batches of rice- done tonnes of shopping, baked awesome shortbread, organised things for tomorrow AND cleaned all the many, many, many pots and plates and cutlery used)- and that would be appreciated ;)

I'm going to make a point of getting home a little early from the shoots as I'm going to have to get all the food ready for the next day, so I may get a chance to get online if I relax a bit when I first get home- can't guarantee it though, so I don't want to hold you up.

Role on the Ship: Cargo Handler

Weapon(s): 2x WESTAR-34 blaster pistol ( holster belt )
Shock whip ( back of holster belt )
Vibroknucklers ( both hands )
Echani energy shield ( right shoulder )

Appearance: Kazum well builded man with many scars. He has short silver-white hair and silver eyes. He wears black light combat armor, fingeless leather gloves, combat boots.
Like all Echani he relys on agility because of that he wears very light armor and use small weapons. He prefers close combat and don't like long range fights.

Name: Shaen Berus

Age: 31

Species: Human

Gender: Female

Role on the Ship: resident 'Sad devotee of an ancient religion'/some medical skill

Weapon(s):
a Stouker Concussion Rifle,
a Bryar pistol
a battered cortosis-weave vibroblade.
She no longer carries her lightsaber on her person, after several too-close encounters with Inquisitors.

Appearance: at about 5'4 she is slight and wiry, with close cropped honey blonde hair and grey-green eyes, under which there are almost constantly faint dark circles. On her back there is a thin scar running from below her left shoulder to midway up the back of her skull, skewing slightly towards her left ear at the top. Usually wears loose fitting pants, shirts, many-pocketed vests in neutral colours- rather typical space-farer apparel.

Background: Kuat was her homeworld, of which she remembers little having left at such a young age. She was fourteen standard years old when Order 66 was issued, and survived because her and her master, Zarzig Tharaa, were on a reconnaissance mission on a small outer rim planet. Her master attended the conclave called to Kessel by Shadday Potkin where he, along with the other attendees, was killed by Vader. He had left her in hiding, with instructions on what to do if something happened to him, and some small amount of funds. Alone, she made for Hutt territory, where it has always been easy for those who wish to stay hidden to hide.
She still practices what she learned at the Academy, although that is obviously limited due to her age when the purge began. The Jedi and what they stood for have become almost mythologised in her mind, a memory of bright, perfect justice before the shadow of the Empire fell





Blarghar- that's rubbish. Just wanted to get something up so you'd something to work with. I'll edit it when my brain is better.

Hey there Darthwedge... This looks very entertaining I'd love to join!

Here's a sheet...

Name: Hos Wass'ni

Age:41

Species: Twi'lek

Gender: Male

Role on the ship: Mechanic/Repairman

Weapons: A 40' vibroblade and a heavy metal gauntlet used in hand-to-hand combat.

Appearance: Hos has bright blue skin and dark yellow eyes. His forehead bears a tattoo consisting of seven black vertical lines with a single horizontal line going through their middle. His eyes have an outward slant that well portrays his lazy and laid-back nature. His mouth often rests at a shallow frown, giving him an almost eternally disinterested expression. His tall and slender frame is covered with a once long green rode that was for one reason or another cut short at his waist, and a plain old pair of brown trousers of some obscure leather. Hos wears a pair of large black boots obviously of some military origin, he has let let them slip from there past glory with a total lack of upkeep and maintenance letting them fall apart at the seams. His hands and arms are wrapped in dirty old grease-filled rags.

Background: Hos had a rather strained childhood as he had no permanent home, he traveled from world to world with his father on trading caravans where he developed an interest in vessels of all kinds, he soon learned how they worked and how to stop them from working (a talent he has excelled in). His father taught him how to fight in his spare time, knowing all too well the harshness of the many worlds they traveled upon, although a decent combatant, Hos has never liked fighting and usually shies away from a fight unless those that are important to him are at stake however other than his now deceased father there are very few people in the universe he would consider even remotely important. He came to enjoy the pleasures of drink and women as he aged, and soon his life was consumed by these things, he has been struggling ever since with money and work, and recent offers in the position of mechanic on rebel trade routes has sparked his interest, in hopes of some cash to line his pockets and perhaps a female friend or two along the way, he signed up right away.

*clears throat* Officially, as the ship's armorer, the more similar weapons we have, the easier maintenance can be performed. Unofficially, double-check your holster, she stole yours and I think that concussion rifle of hers won't let you have it back, lol.


As for the concussion rifle, doesn't it seem odd that a small jedi has one of those?


Etain, from [i]Republic Commando Hard Contact[/i], wasn't that big either, and a concussion rifle was her weapon of choice. The clones loved her for it. Well, admired her once she managed to start doing things right without endangering them, anyways.


As for me being the "High Council"...

In all fairness Critch, DW did say that after nanuk joined, the RP was closed. The court rules in favor of the defendant, Mr. Ne_Drac, and the plaintiff, Mr. Critch, will be put on standy and notified if anyone falls out or if the GM changes his mind.

I also place a vote of 'no confidence' in the behavior of one Mr. Mablung_Sarion, and hereby resign my appointment. *pounds gavel*

Lol, yeah, I'm a prick for that last one, but it still gets me. Disbanding the Jedi Council "for the good of the Order"? WTF?! Gotta love my sense of humor.

Low centre of balance, she'll be fine. The Force is with her and all that.
