As some of you know the practioners of Teras Kasi in this PA have decided to make a sort of cell for the Teras Kasi. A group of people who can help fellow Teras Kasi Artists train and other sorts of things. We are eventually going to build a Dojo where the Teras Kasi practioners can live, train, and hold tournaments. This is a cool idea but still needs approval from the leaders. I have a grand idea. Maybe we could start a Teras Kasi Association for Starsider! This Association could keep track of the practioners, have locations of dojos across the galaxy, hold tournaments, and help students find masters to train with. This may not be a grand idea though...What do you think? In real life there are martial art associations why not in SWG?

Yes, making a TKA cell would be a nice way to roleplay a reason to have you around. "I practice Teras Kasi because it's cool, and I live here because my friends live here" is a lot less interesting than something like "after looking for a teacher for years, I found a cell within the =A=. After weeks of training, they let me stay and I helped them build their dojo. Now I am one of the teachers."

Adding flavour to groups like this is great, and I see some major potential in this, and the wookie hostel! Keep up the good work!

I for one will be a TK- but I think right now we should worry about working small minded, and then as we get better and more familiar with our cell then we should expand into your idea Vessen.

I for one am down with us having custom made robes that look alike (i'd rather have armor though, but robes go over armor) and our own dojo and that sort. I'm definitely like this idea- great way to RP :)

I finally know what my rodian is going to look like!! He's one bad mother...shut yo mouth!

I've been holding this idea for along time. I just thought I might talk about it before the game. Well I'm glad some of like my idea.

I agree completely. But what color robes should we wear? Black? I was thinking something dark. Maybe a Black robe with Dark blue lining? That would be cool.

Swediot I will be glad to spar with you. Don't worry about me dealing the killed blow. My character tries not to kill most of the time. Everyone feel free to come and train with us at the dojo.

Why thank you Set, I'm just trying to have a great RPing experience along with play.

That's because you are walking carpets. But seriously, how much do you cost?:D

Well come on down and train with us Wraith! Don't be shy, we don't bite. We just throw punches at blinding speeds.:rolleyes:

Okay also I was thinking that the Teras Kasi Dojo could organize hunts. But it will be mainly for practioners of melee combat so they can get more XP. But everyone is welcome to join us! Lets throw some ideas around about our cell. Things we can provide to the PA etc. Like an super cool squad of Teras Kasi Masters! Enlightenment on weaponless combat etc. Some buddies to drink with...:D

The robes should have black with either red or blue trim- or if we settle on like a PA color scheme we should use that for our robes, but if not go with the previous.

I'm going to be a Rodian btw.

Mmmm, these are all great ideas! I am glad that the Teras Kasi Cell is taking shape. Now what do you leaders think of it? By the sound of it you are in agreement, but will we be under the Combat Group or a specialized sub-unit like the Bounty Hunters? I think it would be cool to have the sub-unit!

As for the robes, only certian items I can change the appearance, color, and name of. For instance if I make robe I can change its colors, possibly its appearance (how it looks on your avatar), and I can give it whatever name I want like "Teras Kasi Robe" or if you are at the correct skill level "Robe of the Master Teras Kasi."

Has The Associates agreed on a color scheme? Because if we have that is what we would most likely use for our colors.

Well, yes, I can see the TKA cell being a subgroup of the combat group, and you are free to evolve it into that if you like. It feels good to know that I have ambitious personell prepared to step forward, especially since I won't be able to play SWG for a while after release (it takes ages for amazon.uk to ship it here). Having it being a subgroup of the combat group would work, I think, and your independence will more or less depend on how well you handle it. And by what I see, I think it would work out well. And no, I should not post this late at night. It turns into jibberish.

Cooperate. Roleplay. Enjoy your TKA cell. Do this, and I'll let you run it as you like, as long as you are kind to the others in my group. Ok? :)

*Pssst!* Gaarni and Wraith! Look at them! They are actually asking me to do less work! Can you believe it!? :D

EDIT: oh, and yes, at the moment, I don't see any of you as responsible for the group, unless you decide otherwise. I trust you will take a collective responsibility. Does this sound ok?

Wow this is coming together. Yes that sounds okay. Also thanks Set for letting us (when we get bigger) to grow into a sub-group of the combt group.

you deserve it... for the small time youve been here you guys put in good ideas and contribute well to discussions... and as for how much we cost well id have to discuss that once we get our hostel up... we probably will charge by the hour though so prepare to couch (yes i said it on purpose!!!!) up the mooolaah

Thanks! :) Well I have come up with a lame name for the dojo. The Isak Saret Dojo. It is Teras Kasi spelled backwards. Well it looks like we have a tiny bit of planning to do on this cell.

Ok this sounds really cool.

As for the robes or "gees" we should have black with different colored borders for what lvl TKA you are or what rank you are within the TKA Cell. It really depends on u Donnie since you are the one to make the robes. Like having white at first then yellow thn red then blue for master.

As for a dojo and dojos we should really just try to stick together at first and dump the resources we find into architects to make a dojo for us. I am sure Marksmen will want to have some beefy TKAs around to take some damage and deal it while they fire at a safe distance.

And once we do establish a dojo we can start spreading new dojos across the planet (Corellia) and edventualy across the universe.

Sounds really good so far guys keep up the good work =] and sounds like most people are actually excited about roleplaying =]

I love the RPing aspect of the whole thing:D . Also after a while it would be cool to have more dojos spilling across the galaxy. That rank thing is an okay idea but I don't support it. I am a practioner of Aikido. In my dojo we don't have a huge rank system. We just have white belts and black belts. No frilly pink poka dot stripes or blue with a neon glow. Its a simple thing. I think we should have the same uniform. It could confuse the enemy. One guy might be a novice but another could be a master...

I think Gaal does Aikido too. Isn't it focused on throwing your opponen? I've been looking to start taking martial arts lately so I'm wondering.

Well its kind of a go with the flow thing. Its opposite of Karate. Which is force against force. Like a Karate Artist throws a punch and I catch his fist, throw him on the ground all the while he's in a wrist lock. Its quite fun.:)

Hm. A bit too slow for my taste, it is. Me, I go with my shinai. As a kendoka, I sharpen my mind and wield it together with my blade. Plus, a bogu armour is way nicer than having just a gi, and at most a gi and a hakama, as you have in aikido. Me, I have gi, hakama and kote, do, men and tare. Oh, and swords. You can't go wrong with swords. ;)

Plus, pursuing a Way that you are never tempted to put to use in real life is pursuing a gentle Way. Oh, and the worst action actor ever, Steven Seagal, doesn't practise kendo. :p

The very last night of beta I played for about three hours as TK, I made it to the second level in that time. The major prob is that it costs like a 1000 creds to get trained to the next level. So pooling resources initially will be good to pay for someone to get trained to each level. This WILL definately give us an advantage.

This goes for any group BH, Marksman, Artisian, etc. As far as this PA goes, we NEED to get someone trained in each area asap.

I know our PA has a deffinitive structure, but one thing we will need to do is establish some other things. I will start another post regarding this under PA TRAINERS.

I vote Vessen in as the one to get "Paid" training, but with that training comes much responsibility. Training others........

Umm....either that or he just does some delivery missions so he can get the money to train. So from all these posts here, including myself, the =A= will have around 5-6 TK's right?

Lord_Vessen
06-25-2003, 01:06 PM
Yes I believe we do.

Set I know the worst actor in the world practices Aikido:) . But he's to...how can I put this. Hhhhmmm. I'll just say he sucks. Also we use swords and stuff. I'm working on wielding to short swords right now.:DWell in game I will be a sort of samurai guy. Teras Kasi/Swordsman.

Regarding Ranks: There won't be any ranks, no leaders, no pee-ons, we are Teras Kasi, we opperate as a whole. But there are certain levels of skill, like "student" all the way to "master." In my opinion everyone who isn't a master should have a certian robe and everyone who is a master has a different type/color robe. But, of course, we can take a vote on this. The dojo thing is a great idea...but there is one problem, if we start setting up dojos everyone and we only have about 5 or 6 Teras Kasi that really wouldn't make sense because the odds of a Teras Kasi being there are slim-to-none. At most I think we should have 3...maybe 1 or 2 more.

On a side note I think it's cool we all have a fair share of martial arts talent. I took American Goju, Washun Rue, and starting July 12 my Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes begin. I can't wait for the Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Tai Chi studies the Wu Dan sword art (the stuff you saw in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.)

Anyways...let me know what you think about what was stated above!

I think you should only have 1 Dojo, and there should be 2 uniforms - Apprentice and Master.

Of course, what do I know? I carry a gun :fire2: :D.

I used to take kempo (for about 6 years) i got to the belt just before black but had too many conflicting things goin on. Kempo is a combination of many forms of martail arts: Akido (flowing movements to use the enimies force against them), Ju-Jitsu (ground wrestling), boxing, kick boxing, and many others. It was a worth while experience and i suggest kempo to everyone.

Yah now that i think about it ranks will be a bad idea and may split up the TKA. We should all just have some gis and have them be black or dark blue or both.

I also think we should have only one dojo, but just like the PA we may expand to other planets. Of course I am thinking months and months ahead.

I will not be playing on the day the game comes out so I'll see you guys whenever, although i will be starting on Correllia.
