View Full Version : Online Jedi KotOR Instant message RPG idea.

09-03-2005, 11:12 AM
I was planning on setting up a Online Role Playing game based around KotOR, Which will be played on an Instant messanger (MSN,Yahoo, etc). I'm a member of one for another franchise and i think its quite good and would work in the Star Wars: Knights of the old republic era.

It works by having a gamesmaster (who would be me) who will create missions for people to choose and play. Each player will have 1 character (in this case a jedi) who they will have complete control of, when all NPCs and events are controled by the gamesmaster. Your character like in the KotOR computer game will gain experiance, skills and feats.

I plan to make it that your character starts off as a jedi who has just passed their trials and been made a jedi knight who will be able to select missions posted by the council ranging from negoiations to covert ops.

Your character will be entierly of your making being any species from the SW:KotOR universe (providing there is soom example of a force user and excluding Yodas) and any class (sentinal, consular or guardial). Also you get to build your first sabre/s strait away as you will be knights.

As we progrees you will 'level up' learning new feats and skills and earning prestige, which you can cash in for new equipment including sabre crystals and robes.

but before i set up the rules, database/s and website i'll need i need to know if anyone will be interested in joining (don't worry it will be completely free, i'm not after your money). So post if you would be interested and if i get good feedback i'll make a start on setting up a trial period before i devote to much to it (this will be to see if it works and get rid of any problems in the rules)

Count me in.....sounds like a good idea....besides, Darth drekker is bound to make a sweeping return somewhere down the line.

I'll consider it. But only Force users? Eh, I think I can make one, but it's still fun to be a non-force user killing Jedi with nothing but his/her mad skillz.

is this suppost to be a full blown game or wat, i like the idea just dont know wat its like, would it be like an online game like runescape?

I'ts not a computer programme like rune scape. Its like D&D Role playing but played online instead of on a table(or the floor). Also it will be one on one (THE player and gamesmaster) as its will be played using instant messaging (Like yahoo and MSN). It will use similar Rules To Knights of the old republic includeing the D20 system.
