I would think that this would be a very legit RP, I mean, Im thinking an almost apocalyptic setting with several different factions fighting for control of the galaxy. 

 

any thoughts? lets go big and have fun or else!

What era is this set in?

 

Strongly simplified Star Wars timeline:

 

Republic is formed

Republic reaches the height of it's power

Republic gets defeated, replaced by the Empire (Prequel Trilogy)

Empire is in power (SW 4,5)

Empire falls (SW 6)

New Republic starts rebuilding (between SW 6,7)

The First Order becomes a threat, starts conflicts with the New Republic (SW 7)

 

Personally, I would recommend the era immediately after SW6 and the Battle of Endor. You can get a 'power vacuum' in which numerous parties try to set up, and the formation of the First Order. The problem with that is that if more details are released then the RP might be made very obviously uncanon.

I currently have an Idea for a setting about Four hundred years after current canon. with different force-wielding-factions such as:

 

the new Sith empire.-obviously dark side.

 

Dark jedi-Dark Jedi was a term used to describe a type of individual who practiced the dark side of the Force, but was not a Sith Lord.

 

Jensaarai-Gray jedi (who are badchull in their laser resistant armor) they walk the line between Light and Dark. they are allies to the Jedi.

 

Jedi/Alliance-Obviously light side.

 

There is a fifth of my own design, but this will only be used if this Rp gets popular.

 

it should be known that all these terms are considered Canon and I am trying to stick to the history of this universe as close as I can. but all ideas are subject to change.

I think the game would work best in ep. 5-6 era, but that's just me. I'd love to join, though.

the only problem with that is that it takes away (or makes it way harder to be) most force users. if everyone's OK with that then its fine, but I don't want to set in stone anything just yet.

I like the idea, but I think that there should probably be some more guidelines, such as:

Races (As we're just starting out, it'd be nice to have general guidelines)

Possible Planets (I know that there are SO many, and that this will probably turn inter-planetary, but in the beginning, we should probably just choose 1)

Social Classes (Rich people, poor people, merchants, etc.)

Force Affinity

# of Force Users (It'd be rather hard to have everybody be a Jedi)

 

We might also need people to submit applications so that their characters can't just do everything:

Example: Dark Jedi born son of a Core World Senator, still has old connections, good at politics, smuggles while simultaneously managing the Droid Factory and Grand Spice Trade.

Some sort of alternative area for factions to talk in--it's hard to play your character as if they don't have information that they just read here--I've seen some other RPs like Sanderson Elimination plan things in Google Docs. I don't mean that we should segregate the factions or anything, just that if one side is planning an attack or operation or something and has an in-game chance to coordinate their characters, they should be able to do so without the other side having to worry about trying not to think about the plan.

 

Oh! Also, what's happened if this is circa +400? Any new tech we should know about?

 

I have to say, it looks pretty fun though :-). Death Watch 2.0 anyone?

nice job on that.

I'm thinking we could just do that here and have the Actual RP in a different thread. or, they could have a PM conversation for each group

I'm thinking smaller hyper drives that could be equipped to smaller ships, better holographics, short range Transmat(?), personal shields(?), better blasters, etc. 

stuff that you would expect to be experimented and innovated.

I shall join. And if one of my characters is a jedi, I get double purple light-sabers. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Ooh! Ooh! What if the holograms were better graphics and didn't glitch, and they had actual earpieces to communicate with?

I like this. and your jedi is already awesome.

 

and they shall have wireless headphones, because for some reason they don't have that tech yet.

 

Ok.

my character.

Valran. 

Ex-jedi (because he was too violent) and ex-Sith (cuz a Badchull Jedi with a double purple lightsaber saved his butt when he was a kid :P ) and has a sarcastic recon droid that works as his copilot. now he wanders the galaxy, avoiding recruiting factions and studying everything that can be found about the force.

I would be all for this. I'd honestly rather be a badass Mandalorian bounty hunter over a Jedi anyways, so you've got one non-Jedi viewpoint. Perhaps if someone is deadset on being a force user, perhaps we could throw some Gray Jedi in the mix?

Could I be a droid? I think it would be kind of fun to structure thoughts like a computer program.

Can I join? I would like to be a Mando heavy/sniper. (If that's ok.) Also, he's not a huge fan of lasers so he uses projectiles such as slug throwers and a rail gun sniper rifle?(again if cool with you) And a Beskar axe.

the beskar axe sounds... fun. :P

 

edit: Hey, second page, good to know that things are moving up in life :D

Okay, I kinda forgot about writing this, but I'm giving it a shot.

Designation: IX39-B

Manufacturer: Prototype Baktoid IX Droid

Core Protocol: Target Retrieval (Bounty Hunter)

-------------------------------------------------------

IX39-B piloted its ship through the asteroid field, steadily moving closer to the target, an old Jaemus ship. The pilot of the ship was good, but IX39-B was equipped with a high-level guidance program, giving it the upper hand.

Closing in on target. Calculating distance until interception... 2 minutes. IX39-B was close. It had been chasing this target, another bounty hunter who had double-crossed IX39-B's current employer, for weeks.

IX39-B's ship edged closer and closer, and it prepared the onboard EMP cannon. Suddenly, a warning began to flash on its ship's console.

Target is attempting hyperspace jump. Time before jump > EMP charge time. Target will not escape. The EMP cannon was about ten seconds away from being ready to fire, and the target ship was going to make the jump in about eleven seconds. It would be close.

The two ships blasted out of the asteroid field, each trying to eke more speed from their ship.

IX39-B began sighting the EMP onto the fleeing ship.

Targeting systems locked. EMP charged in 3.. 2.. 1. Faster than even motorized arms could move, IX39-B sent a message directly to the computer system.

Run fireEMPCannon. With a crack, the weapon fired, just as the target ship was about to jump. The pulse connected, and the ship powered down.

Target disabled. Preparing to tow. Credits acquired... 15,000.

------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Also, because I like playing really weird characters, could I make a Hutt character?

I think that having a Hutt character could be kind of cool. Perhaps my bounty hunter could occasionally do the odd job for them?

I've noticed that most characters are jedi or bounty hunters and criminals. we need some sith/evil characters.

 

Darth Ventrus

childhood friend of Valran, now obsessed with his destruction. has an apprentice Darth Crypt who has a lightsaber with quillions.

 

hey, a bit of world building idea: what if we made some certain well known planets uninhabitable, like Coruscant.
