This is Probably me trying to flog a dead horse but I'll give it a go anyway.

I think it's safe to say the Mercenary crew thread is dead, May it R.I.P.

While doing it i noticed several problems with the situation. The most notable was the fact we were being 'Good Guy' criminals against a 'Good Guy’ government. Another problem was the lack of planning as a group (This was mainly my fault.) The characters were on the ship together for months and the crew barely knew each other and seemed to have no other relationships.

The first problem could be sorted by a simple change of the Time line (a 4000 year difference.) and take us to the period between revenge and Hope. This is so the government is tyrannical but we won't get involved in the whole Film storyline. This thread sorts the second problem.

This Thread is to sort out characters and the storyline, work out what the other members of the crew know and don't know about your character. We don't want crewmen who are open books but we don't want the exact opposite and have someone who is only known by 1 letter.

The Ship- The Echo

Rougth internal Layout- http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a353/starmark2k/Echo.jpg

A medium Kuat Freighter that dates back to the clone wars. It's has greatly improved Engines and shields. It has also had a second turret placed on the dorsal hull and has had part of the Cargo hold turned into a 'quick drop' Hanger for a Z-95 Headhunter. The Bridge has a small forward bridge for the captain, pilot and a passenger, This leads into the common room where food can be prepared and consumed it is also where the crew can relax and play games like Dejaric or Sabacc. The Opposite side of this is a small corridor with access to the ventral and dorsal turrets. This then leads to the engineering section. Off the corridor are 10 Sleeping Quarters for the crew and passengers. Ladders to the lower level are located in the common room and the ladders to the turret also lead to the lower level.

The lower level is one large cargo hold with catwalks along walls, The rear has a small hanger that holds the Z-95, the cockpit is accessed via the catwalks. The hanger has doors under the hunter to allow the fighter to drop out of the ship and quickly get to action. The loading ramp is on the starboard side of the ship.

Weapons/Equipment: Blaster Pistol, Vibroblade (concealed in Boots.), Short-range scatter shot blaster rifle (Shotgun).
Bio: Nick White was born and raised in the capital city of Naboo, Thread. His mother was one of the queens handmaidens so he was brought up within the walls of the palace. His father was a Lieutenant in the Naboo security force and took to the Security force. Soon after joining the Clone war began, Naboo only saw small fragment of the war and was only attacked once causing the Republic to place a base on the planet. This caused the Naboo security force to only take on low level policing. Nic noticed how the clone troopers seemed to be working there way into the government. When a Governor was appointed to ‘look over’ Naboo Nic knew that this was leading to something worse and left the NSF. When the Empire was formed he decided to get away from his world and took to the stars, He joined a small team of mercenaries where he learnt new skills. He did many missions and made a name for himself, during one mission he had to meet a contact in a cantina he ended up helping a women in a fight. The women, Jana Vincent, didn't need his help but appreciated him all the same. Nic introduced Jana to the world of freelance mercenaries and she took to it like a duck to water. They ended up working together on many jobs and after one successful mission nic joined a ‘friendly’ game of sabacc with an old retiring mercenary, The stakes kept getting higher until it came down to Nic and the old merc. The Old merc put is Ship in the pot which would have forced nic to leave if Jana hadn't stepped in and gave nic her life svings. Nic Won the game along with the Echo.
How you were recruited: He own the ship.

We can work out relationships between the crew later. This can be how crew members are related, married or old friends. The only one who can't have a previous relationship is the jedi.

Remember that your first Character Sheet does not have to be set in stone as relationships will chnge things.

Position: Turret gunner 1/First mate

Name: Jana Vincent

Nickname: Short Stuff

Species: Human

Sex: Female

Age: 33

Allignment: Light

Appearance: dark brown curly hair falls mid-back, dark brown eyes, 5' 2" tall

Weapons/Equipment: She's had extensive training in hand-to hand combat... anything she can lift is a weapon in her hands. Other than that, she carries a modified blaster pistol and a long knife anywhere she goes.

Bio: Jana was raised by her father and mother on Corellia. Her life was not much affected by the Empire, though she was living during the government switch. Her parents had always been concerned for her safety and therefore, when she was old enough, they sent her to a combat school.

At combat school, she excelled in nearly everything she tried, specifically, turret use. She was also trained in several different forms of martial arts. In the combat school, she heard rumors of the best pilot ever, a girl named Beryl Quitaan. Though Jana would have been interested in meeting the hotshot pilot, the meeting never occurred.

After combat school, Jana left Corellia and went to Coruscant. There, she ended up loosing most of her money, forcing her to stay and work. Stubborn enough not to contact her parents for more money, this is exactly what she did, but it led her to fighting.

In one such fight, she met Nic White. He introduced her to the work of a freelance mercenary. She liked it enough that she stayed close to Nic. When he had a job, she went with him. Gradually, they spent less and less time apart. When he won the Echo, she was watching. When he asked her to be the start of a crew he'd recruit for the new ship, she accepted, becoming the first turret gunner and first mate.

O.K i made various mistakes in the first post so i'll edit it, The main one is the fact i haven't put the rules in... I know it's my thought but one of my Rules is always no 'super' characters. This includes spenies that can be shot 50 times and still be standing. With or without armour. So sorry Steven, But your character is in violation of that rule... Your bio is good and it will work with pretty much any species so i hope it doesn't cause to much inconveiniance.
But i'm sure you see my point as it makes characters to unbalanced which makes it unfair to other players.

I also added Sex and Allignment to the Char sheets

I'm sorry but is was a long post with alot of info in it.

Oliver was born on Dantooine, where he did work for his parents on their farm. His childhood did end, when his father died by some hunters in the area. That did hurt Oliver.

But he choosed the wrong freinds. Fenric Khan, one of his old childhood freinds cheated him. So he didn’t arrive to Coruscant, where Oliver thougt he could be a politician. Oliver was on his way to Naboo.
On the way, while Oliver was in a really bad mood about his travel to Naboo, he did meet a young girl, who was a soldier. She was medic in the army – and they falled in love on the very long trip. She learned him everything about to be a medic – and he did have a great talent. But when they arrieved, the girl was arrested. She was a criminal – and Oliver couldn’t forgive that. He is very lawful, and he decided, that he never wanted to meet her again, and took job on the ship called ”Echo”.

How you were recruited: Did get a job by the captain.

(Sorry if the english is bad. I’m not perfect to english, but i will try my best.)

Ummm well part of the first thread is your char joining so no need to worry about the joining , History wise You can put down info which would be on an imperial bounty sheet, or which would be on public databases. As my char will probably check those after we discover you are a jedi.

Position: Engineer
Name: Cloud Strife
Nickname: Cloud
Species: Human
Sex: Male
Age: 21
Allignment: Light
Appearance: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/50/Cloud_Strife_art.jpg
Weapons/Equipment: Sword(seen holding in picture), E-11 Blaster Rifle, a wrench, and a belt of grenades.
Bio: As a small boy, Cloud Strife read many stories about the Jedi. He loved exploration and space. He was so smart, he took apart a hyperdrive and put it back together when he was in 10th grade in under 5 minutes. After collage, he opened a starport/mechanic shop on Aldeeran(sp?). He spent hours in that shop, doing what he loved: fixing and repairing things.

Once when he was a mercenary, he was doing a mission with some of his friends, he meets a young flower girl named Aerith Gainsborough. After some adventures, she is killed by a soldier named Sephiroth. Cloud vows to kill him if its the last thing he does. After about 6 months, he returns to his homeplanet, to cope with the loss of his love, Aerith.

How you were recruited: It was a hot day. Cloud was sitting on a hammock when the Echo landed in the landing bay. Nic ordered a repair and Cloud decided to do the job personally. He did his best and Nic was impressed. He invited Cloud to join his crew and he said yes.

Oh, then I'll change it.

starmark2k
01-23-2006, 04:24 PM
Now we almost have a full crew, we can start to work on the relatioships between the crew... Remember that you can continue to change your character how you want (within the rules.) As the Relationships may change your bio. I.E If me and someone decide to have been comrades in the NSF, bios and recruitment will no doubtibly change. Also if to people intemd to be in a relationship loke a husband and wife this will also change the bio (it may also change the recruitment although you may have first met on the ship.). Also in relationships work out if there are certain characters your chacacter hates, We are stuck on a confined ship together so we won't be one big happy family. This is also an opportunity for you to voice your opinions on other peoples characters, Keep your critisisms constructive if you do so.

o.k so if you want to have a bit more of a story on how you come to be on the ship post what you would like to do. It can be anything You could have been stealing from me i caught you and you managed to blag your way on to the crew. Also i'm willing to have a pre-echo relationship with one person- wither as a person i served with on naboo, or worked with as a merc before i won the ship.

Also in the event we don't get a headhunter pilot it will become a drone fighter, And if we don't get gunner 2 the captain (me) will take the turret in emergancies.

We won't start untill everyone is happy...

01-23-2006, 04:32 PM
In the beginning, i don't relly have a relationship with others in the crew. I would tryk to play Oliver, as a man there had to many bad memories about humans/aliens in his mand. He is actually a lonely person.

But it could be nice, if the captain could have "a pity" (Say if it looks stupid) relationship to Impe.

Starmark, I'd be interested in changing my character so yours knew her pre-Echo... I think I'd like that better than her current story.

01-23-2006, 05:08 PM
Ok, so the engineer place is taken. :-( I'll take the Headhunter Pilot.

Position: Headhunter Pilot
Name: Beryl Quitaan
Nickname: Psycho
Species: Human
Sex: Female
Age: 35
Alignment: Loyal to Captain Nic, and that’s all that matters
Appearance: 5’8”, short blond hair, toned, pretty--but does not normally dress to impress
Weapons/Equipment: Blaster pistol, and various other sharp and pointy objects hidden amongst her person
Bio: Born on Corellia to a CEC (Corellian Engineering Corporation) engineer, Beryl was the only girl out of eight children. She’s a tomboy, a gambler & thrill seeker, and more than a little rebellious, but a “damn good pilot” as her father used to say. Three of her brothers have joined the Rebellion, but her father has forbidden her to join them. So, she’s doing the next best thing she can think of.
How you were recruited: Playing Pazaak with Nic one night, she bet that if she won he would take her on as part of the crew. He lost. 

01-23-2006, 05:13 PM
XoRRoX- That sounds fine, But why would Nic take pity on your char.

Wildjedi- Sounds good, So What do you want our pryor relationship be, I'm willing to change my bio and possibly my homeworld (as most planets would of had a local security force.) and i can proberly change my age by 5 years either way and still keep the character as the guy he is.

01-23-2006, 05:49 PM
Don't change your age... I'll change mine. Prior relationship would be... I donno... what do you think?

01-23-2006, 06:04 PM
@JasraLantill
I like your character and recruitment, makes my character a bit of a gambler.

@Wildjedi
Well We could have been In the NSF or another military together before the Empire and decided to leave when the empire was formed becoming mercs and working together, When i got the Echo you could have joined as the first mate

or

When i left the NSF we met while i worked as a freelance merc, Got to know each other became friends (possibly more but thats up to you.) and i won the echo and you followed. becoming my first mate.

or

We knew each other from childhood but when i left the NSF we lost touch until years later when we meet up again, I already have a ship and you need a job so i take you on.

or

Anything you can think of...

Thanks, Starmark. I think Psycho and Nic would have one of those 'try-and-best-me-if-you-can' type relationships. You know, a little competitive, but all in good fun.

@ ExtremeJedi12--And since Psycho grew up in an engineering/piloting/shipbuilding type of family, she's a pretty good mechanic. She'd be more than willing to lend a hand to Cloud when (or if) he needs it. She might come across to him as a know-it-all though. Could be some friction there, if you like.

@Steven--If Goren's gruff and tough all the time, Psycho will like him. He'd remind her of her dad. But she'll probably tease him just to get a rise out of him once in a while, but never in a mean way.

@ZoRRox--Psycho's a thrill seeker and likes to live dangerously, so she gets herself cut, bruised, & battered quite a bit. (Hence her nickname being 'Psycho'!) I imagine that she and Impe will be well acquainted! Don't worry though. She has a high tolerance for pain and her injuries are never really that serious. (You know, broken ribs, black eyes, the occasional gash on the head...nothing really life threatening. Just irritating. :) )

K guys so we don't get confused with the time lines, i'm going to make one up in the first post, i'll proberly start it around my chars birth, But i'll extend it later to put in everyone elses. It'll go up to when we start the rp and possibly beyond so we know how long it will be to the events of the new hope. The time line will include key events in all characters lives and when people joined the crew. so once i put it up (i'm on my lunch break at the mo so it'll take me an hour once i finished work so 6 to 8 hours time.) you can give me your time line which i will add to the main one in pos 1.

Writer
01-24-2006, 11:17 AM
Starmark, I'm changing my char slightly yet again... Nic and Jana didn't grow up together... part of the reason I say that is the difference of planet. We met after you left the NSF. Jana was just getting into freelance merc work and partnered up with you a few times before deciding to tag along.

I'll explain it better in my post above.

You might mention in the timeline that Jana works with Nic repeatedly between the time they meet and the time he wins the ship.

ahh, i was assuming this one would be much closer to the end of RotS than this. okay, i'll adjust Shana's age to reflect this. her age should now be about Nic's age since Shana would have been about 20-22 at the very start of the Clone Wars. i'll make it.... 34. ;)

and she would have been born on the twi'lek homeworld: Ryloth. ;)

@stringerhs- I added your bits although i swapped the dates around as the dates go in desending order as time moves forward.

@XoRRoX- O.k thats our characters relation ship sorted.

@All- so you know, here's how i see my chars relationship with all of yours this is based on your bios and other posts, Some things i made up to add more interest in it, this is can all change it's just a 'so far' post

Jana is the only person who nic would trust with his life, They have been friends for around seven years and fought many battles including several bar room brawl.

Jack Goren isn't an easy person to get on with, Nic can't say he partically likes him nor can he say he partically hates him, Nic dosen't like owing people favors so after Jack saved nics life he saw the best way to repay him was to give his a job. Nic does respect the old Pilot for his skills as a pilot, He keeps the ship moving and thats the most important thing.

Oliver Van Impe would not have been Nics first choice for a healer, but With the lack of options for medics to mercenaries he took him on. Nic saw a lonly and sad man in his new medic and found himself pitying Impe.

Cloud Strife is a brilliant enginneer, Perhaps the best, although Nic would never tell him as much. Nic and cloud have the classic captain/engineer relationship, Cloud needs good parts to work, Nic dosen't buy them.

Beryl Quitaan is a gambler and fighter pilot, Whats not to like. Nic spends alot of free time playing sabacc and pazzack in the common room together, They also gamble on what is often considered by others as 'foolish' things such as who can kill the most badguys, Turrets or fighters.

Nic beleives the jedi are fools, The way Nic sees it they could have prevented all of the tyranny that now rules the galaxy.

01-24-2006, 05:13 PM
Jana-hardly knows. Doesnt talk to her

Nick-usually follows orders to the letter and knows that Nick doesnt like the fact he owes Jack.

Oliver-hardly knows. He doesn't often go to the infirmary on his own concent. He doesn't like being treating his injuries, he either heals them himself or leave them there

Cloud- hardly knows but he does release his skills in engineer and respects him for that.

Beryl- like the rest of the crew he hardly knows.Though she often teases him

Writer
01-24-2006, 05:32 PM
I suggest we all post what our characters think of the others... it'll give us a bit of a look into how they might react to one another and, overall, get a better feel for each others' characters.


Jana trusts Nic as much as he trusts her. If she has a problem with one of their jobs, she'll tell him. She feels comfortable telling him anything that's on her mind. They know each other very well.


Jack Goren doesn't talk much. Jana respects his skills as a pilot, but as second in command, she's annoyed by his lack of communication. Because of it, she occasionally jokes to Nic about their pilot's 'excellent people skills' and suggests he might need to go back to school for a communication class.

Oliver Van Impe patches up the crew, a task Jana finds incredibly helpful from time to time. She's been known to take chances she shouldn't and has learned to respect Impe's skills. She also pities Impe's lonliness.

Jana appreciates Cloud Strife's ability to keep the Echo running, if given the proper parts. When the captain doesn't buy the parts Cloud needs, he goes to the second in command, Jana, putting her in a tough place. She wants the ship to run smoothly, but she would hate to contradict Nic. She usually tells him, "Were I in charge, you'd get your parts. But I'm not. So don't ask."

When it comes to Beryl Quitaan, Jana has mixed feelings. On the one hand, Beryl's a great fighter pilot. She's very helpful when it comes to sticky situations the crew of the Echo might face. On the other hand, Beryl seems to bring out a foolish side of Nic. Though Jana never forgets that gambling was what got them the ship, she can't help but wish, Beryl was a little less of a risk-taker.

Jana isn't quite so strong in her dislike of Jedi as Nic is. She too believes that the Jedi could've halted the Empire's ascent if they'd focused more on what was going on around them. As a child, Jana idolized the Jedi. Now, their reputation has taken a devastating hit. In Jana's opinion, it'll take a lot for them to redeem themselves... but she doubts it'll ever happen.

Ok Starmark, here are my contributions to the timeline. Let me know if there are any glaring errors! :)

31BBY Beryl attends the TCTA (Talus Combat Training Academy) in the Corellian system.

27BBY Quitaan Scholarship Fund established and a new TCTA flight control tower is built by Rade Quitaan of the CEC (Corellian Engineering Corp.) to replace the one that was irreparably damaged by an over zealous female student pilot doing a hot-shot flyby and blowing out the windows (oops... :) )

24BBY Beryl (along with her twin brothers Telk & Teser) becomes a test pilot for CEC rival Incom-Subpro (before its merger into Incom Corp.) for the Z-95 series fighters where she earns nickname of Psycho.

22BBY Clone wars. Beryl's brothers (Rayne and Nuss) join up w/Republic forces.

19BBY Beginning of Empire. Beryl is fired with the creation of Incom Corp. due to the availability of less expensive clone test pilots from the Empire.

18BBY Beryl begins working under father Rade as CEC test pilot for new CR-90 Corvette series cruisers.

15BBY Beryl's brothers (Syruss and Rel and Joshi) join Rebellion. Beryl becomes a blockade runner. Her father, Rade Quitaan, dies (of natural causes.)

11BBY Blockade running ship Beryl was piloting is impounded by Empire. She escapes and wins passage (and a new job) on the Echo by beating Nic White at Pazaak (and, as she keeps insisting to Nic, no, she didn’t cheat!)

If this is too detailed, feel free to edit!

This whole thread is so we are reading from the same page, I can't count the number of times i've been in a thread and people had differant opinions on the time it was set and how well everyone knew eachother. This was the main reason why i think the second chaptor of the original merc crew failed as no one really knew what to say cos people thought 'i can't ask that as my character would already know the answer' (well i found myself thinking that.)

And it would be nice to do as wildjedi has said and all give our opinions on other characters from our chars P.O.V. Remember as nothing is set in stone let everything can change.

Here’s what Beryl (Psycho) thinks of everyone…in her own words. (oh dear, oh dear, oh dear…)

“What do I think of Captain Nic White? I like Nic. He reminds me of my brother Rayne—did I mention that I have seven brothers? Good. Anyway, Nic’s a good guy—he likes a good joke, likes a good fight, likes to have a drink while he’s losing a few credits…. Just kidding. He’s not a bad card player, although his right eyebrow twitches when he has a good hand. Oh, erm, don’t tell him I said that, will ‘ya? I’m still down 50 credits on our last game. Yup, Nic likes a little competition now and then. Oh, and by the way, if he ever mentions my name and Imperial fighters in the same breath, the totals are 56 to 54 in my favour. Just, to set the record straight, mind you. But Nic’s a good captain. I respect him. I do. Sure he can be stubborn when he wants to, but most of the time he’s got his priorities set straight. And if he doesn’t, Jana sets him right!

Jana? Oh, she’s the first mate. She’s known Nic a long time. They’re really close friends. *a pause* Hey! Don’t look at me like that. I’m not one to poke my nose into other people’s business. Of course, Jana does give me that ‘look’ once in a while, especially when Nic and I spar in the common room. You know…that ‘look’ your mom gives you when you’ve just caused her favourite vase to teeter dangerously on the mantlepiece when you and your brothers are battling each other with mop handles for swords in the living room. Yeah. That look. But don’t get me wrong. I like Jana. In fact, if it weren’t for her, lots of stuff wouldn’t get done on the Echo. *rolls her eyes* No, I don’t mean stuff like the washing up! We have a rota for that. One that Jana set up, mind you. It’s stuff like that, I mean. Getting parts, supplies, ammo…if it wasn’t for Jana, we’d be in a right mess.

Oh, speaking of messes, if you’re ever in need of patching up, then see Impe. He’s kind of quiet, but he’s got the touch when it comes to healing. See that? That. Right there, above my wrist. Twenty-one stitches, and I didn’t even feel it. No, I’m not kidding. Barely even a scar. Now that’s skill for you. What? Where’s he from? Dantooine, I think. *an amused snort* You know, the amount of time I spend getting patched up by him, you would think I would know more about his background! I’ll have to put that on my to-do list.

Oh! That reminds me! I was supposed to help Cloud with calibrating that manifold coupling. *rolls her eyes* Well, of course I know how to do it! Sith’s blood, my dad was a CEC chief engineer. I practically grew up inside a hyperdrive engine. Me? An engineer? *laughs* Ha! Do I look like an engineer? *shakes head* No. I don’t. Besides, I don’t have the patience for it. *indignant scowl* Yeah, so? I know Cloud’s young, but he’s got this special way of thinking…like he’s playing Dejarik, but with parts, you know. Always thinking one step ahead. Heck, if he didn’t, this ship wouldn’t be in half as good of shape as she is! He’s a great engineer. And, he’s easy on the eyes,… *clears throat* Erm…, not that I’m looking, mind. I mean, like you said, he’s just a kid, right? I mean, I was flying ships before he was even knee high.

What? Why am I not the pilot? Because we already have one. Didn’t you notice that sour-faced curmudgeon in the cockpit? Aw, he’s not that bad, really. Suppose some people would think he’s a bit… well, abrasive, for lack of a better word. But he’s okay. Good pilot, too. And tough as nails. Eats them for breakfast, or so I’ve been led to believe. Yup, Jack’s the strong and silent type. His Basic vocabulary might be lacking, but he’s got an entire repertoire of grunts, growls, and groans that would make a Wookiee envious. Think I’ve figured most of them out though. *frowns* Well, there is that one he makes that I’m not real sure of. Could mean either ‘I totally agree with you one hundred percent’ or ‘get out of my face you psychotic shutta.’ I haven’t quite had enough experience with that one to put it in the correct context.

Is that it? Great. Say, would you hand me that Telescoping Vibra Joiner before you go? Thanks. What was that? *grins* Ha! Not if I see you first."

and so you can get some very brief backround on Ryshana, i'll go ahead and give you guys the cover story that Ryshana's been using for about 3 years (till the start of the RP).
____________

Ryshana has been working as a legitimate cargo transport engineer (as in not involved in smuggling) for the past three years. However, the captain of the frieghter decided that he needed extra credits and was going to start smuggling spice for one of the Hutts. Unaware that an Imperial operative was infiltrating the frieghter, the frieghter was captured by an Imperial Interdictor and impounded for smuggling on its first mission. Using a very clever technique, Ryshana was able to escape completely undetected after being imprisoned for conspiracy.

@JasraLantill- I agree With Wildjedi, You seem to have captured the characters in a nice and comical way, I think you have worked out the relationship between Nic and Jana really well.

@ All- I'm still waiting on timelines from XoRRoX and Extreamjedi12. If it's not to much to ask can you two have joined the crew between the years of 14 BBY and 12 BBY, As those years are the times you would likly be recruited. Also Wildjedi can i have a couple of entries in the timeline for Jana as we only have ones which relate too Nic.

Also Just to let you know we will start the RP on a commercial space-station after bringing smuggled goods to it.

This is good work all and it looks like we will manage to start this friday or saturday if all are happy.

23 BBY- He meets Fenric Khan, who tricks him to take to Naboo.
18 BBY- He meets Fenric Khan, who tricks him to take to Naboo. He meets a girl, he falls in love with.
17 BBY – The girl is arrested by Naboo police by smugling. That crushes Olivers life, and he begins to drink. He do find a job, thanks to his medics skill.
15 BBY – He is fired becuase he drinks to much. He is very lonely and dosen’t meet manye humans.
14 BBY – He gets a job on the ”Echo”. But he drinks a little to much on his room, and he dosen’t speak very much.


Nic White is a nice fellow. He did save Oliver from being a ”drinking hell”. But Oliver dosen’t speak with him very much. Oliver only wants to be alone, not with his captain.
Pilot- Goren (Steven)

Jana Vincent is one of the things, that do Oliver’s job nice. Oliver respects her to be a person, there treat Oliver, as he wants. But sometimes she it is like, that she keeps an eye on him. Like shw wants him to talk with the others in the crew.

Goren, the pilot, is not Oliver’s cocktail. He does always go away from Oliver, and when Oliver can see, that Goren has tanken some damage, Goren dosen’t never go to Oliver.

JasraLantil is a nice person, but damn she gets alot of damage! Oliver does like, that he can do something for her, but sometimes it is to much, and Oliver maybe says wrong things to her, because he can get tired of her.

Obviously the Sketch is rougth, The common room is an all purpose room with tables and chairs for relaxing and playing games. Also theres a kitchen unit in there to prep food and a large table where we can all eat. and you can do the descriptions of your Chars room while we play the RP (or now if you really want, It can give an insight in to your chars personality). You'll have to imagine the ship as that internal image is the extent of my artistic abilities. Again if someone does wish to do a better job than me on the plans you are more than welcome to do so. If you are highly skilled in art you can draw the out side of the ship or anything else you like. Once Ryshana joins the crew she will have the G1 room.

Thanks all for your input in making this prep for what i hope will be a good (possibly the best) series of RPs.

I'm going to give my character one last quirk...
Nic has an odd relationship with his blaster 'shotgun', It's a one of a kind weapon that he built himself the first year he became a Freelance merc. He beleives a Machine with a name has a soul and a machine with a soul works better than those without one. This is why he has called his blaster 'shotgun'... Betsy(it only works with a name like that otherwise it just becomes silly). He will often talk about the gun as if it was a living breathing person, "Betsy won't let me down." "I can always trust Betsy."

And with that i beleive that is all we need to get started. As i said i'll only start when all are happy so simply post to give me the go ahead... If you need to change somthing now is your last chance.. let us know if you do.

Bio: Kip is John Zaroke's son who heard about the crew his dad was in and wanted to be in it just like him, but before he could join he was sent to the Republic to fight, he soon worked his way through the ranks and achived the rank of Commander, Commanding a squad of 16 men after the battle in space to destroy the death star on yavin, he lost only 1 man, his best friend who had helped him throughout the whole war but was last to a stray blaster shot that hit him directly in the eye as Kip was standing next to him. Now Kip is looking for something on the edge and more behind the scenes gig.

How you were recruited: The last time Kip;s father contacted him was right after the war and Kip brought up that he wanted to join "the crew" because everyone knew they were up to something but never knew what or why, John told him that he has to go to crowded planets and in cantinas because thats where the crew looked for fresh blood. Kip had searched 3 or 4 planets until he came to one planet, he saw the captain of the mercenary crew, his dad had described him, Kip ran up and greeted him, told him that he could blast some turrets and that he was John's son.

This is the PM concerning the jedi discovery...


Hi guys i thought i'd let you know my idea for the rest of the RP.

The prisoner will escape (surprise!) While everyone is pretty much asleep and he'll kill Wade. Then he'll come into Someones room (possibly mine) and a small fight will happen which will result in him taken someone hostage. He'll disable the hyperdrive and then try and escape in the headhunter... Before he gets there stringerhs character will save the hostage, and knock the prisoner into the air-lock in a way to cause some suspicion but not name her as a jedi. We Flush the prisoner. Then the imps come along claim they are aware of us having a jedi onboard, Jana puts 2 & 2 togeter works and works it out. Proberly another space battle. We come up with a logical conclusion that involves why the jedi becomes a permanant crew member.

Then i'm going to do what i was going to do with the first one and let others create stories for the crew. As i'm doing it the only fair way, Wildjedi was the first to join so she can do the second story (if you want).

Let me know what you think of the idea.

As previously stated each following story will be done by someone else The order is the order you joined this thread and is as follows.

Discussion about the future (possibly the last one)

I'll Proberly do a short one either side of stingerhs one which will be a character development one for all.
If you don't want to do a story let me know and i'll do one (but make your character the main guy.)
Your story does not have to make you the main character if you don't want it to.
I think it would be nice if we started each episode with a short prologue as told from your characters POV a bit like how i started the first but this isn't essential.

Just so you know, Starmark, this little bit I'm currently doing with JasraLantill and the stranger 'Riebe' will come a bit more into play in my story... For now, it'll just be sorta left where it is :)

Thats cool Wild, I expected as much.

@Wildjedi- I think it won't be much longer than a week before we go on to yours so if you want any aditional planning for your story and need to know more about other characters history you have untill you start the thread

@ ALL-one last note to all, when doing your story to save typing Mercenary Crew: Age of the Empire we can use the acronym 'MC:AotE:' <insert Title> you dont need a title just put chapter or episode then the number it is.

@stingerhs- At the end we are oing to discover the imps are waiting for us near alderaan so can your character say somthing like 'you can drop me off at the next world.' and my character will invite you along for the ride. If this is o.k for you, It's the only logical way i can come up with. If you have any better ideas let me know

Sorry but as i told Master Kan-Maz we have already started the RP and We're too far into it to Have more crew members in it.

I have an idea on how we can add him in. It goes along with your plan. We land on the other side of Aldeeran where my mechanic shop/spaceport is. KWH's charecter is at the starport waiting for a shuttle to come get him and we see him. One of us can go up to him and see if he wants to join the crew. Or we meet him on the next planet. What do you say, S2K?

Just so you know, Starmark, when Ryshana takes care of Tasser, he'll be forced to let go of Jana rather abruptly, I imagine. Nic should be close enough to catch her and prevent her from falling... and she'll not want to let go of him for a little bit... she was a bit more afraid than she thought :)

starmark2k
02-03-2006, 06:57 PM
o.k that sounds good. And stephen before you flush Tasser out the air-lock i want to say a couple of things through the inner door to him.

Starmark: Sorry, but i don't think, taht I could handle a story. Because of me limited english and lots of homework from my school.

starmark2k
02-04-2006, 05:29 AM
o.k. I'm sorry to hear that.

as XoRRoX is writing himself out we have a couple of options

1) We leave it and continue without a Medic
2) If Ryshana has any healing abilities it will make it a better reason for her to stay on the ship.
3) or we recruit a new player to take a medic position (i'll ask killwithhonor)

I'll let stingers decide if the second option is acceptable to him if not we will go for 1 or 3 on a vote.

JasraLantill
02-04-2006, 12:34 PM
Starmark, I'm hoping that Stingerhs will take the place of the medic. It would make perfect sense. (I'm assuming that Capt. Nic would be dropping of Oliver on Alderaan though in order to keep continuity?)

But if Stingerhs decides not to take that route with Ryshana, I'll cast my vote for option 3, as a medic might come in handy later on. (And if that falls through, I'll offer to take over Oliver's character, if there are no objections.)

steven

as i said somthing can blow up in the space battle and injure someone, I think it should be me as it will add an 'i owe you' element to it. You heal me and by this point we'll know you are a jedi so you can use the Force. I let you stay on board.

stingerhs
02-04-2006, 04:55 PM

starmark2k
02-04-2006, 05:05 PM
O.k it'll happen at the beginning of the Battle so Extream can take the turret in the fight. (if you want). So here is where we are in the ten points.
7) Me and Jana go to the cockpit and discuss what happened while cloud fixes the hyperspace.
8) Imperials came and say they know we have a jedi on board, Jana puts two and two together.
9) We get into a small fight Where Nic gets injured and Ryshana heals him when they escape.
10) We discover the Imps are waiting for us outside alderaan and agree to take Ryshana on as crew to keep her safe providing she helps us as a medic.

No it's my fault, I got confused as it seemed like you were going to shoot yourself in a post in the actual thread... only it now appears you weren't. If you don't want to do a story you don't have to... If you do and want help i'm sure we'll all help.

So sorry. As for the reason why Ryshana stays on board i've got two ideas.

1)Jana persuades Nic to let her stay, as Ryshana saved her life agains Tasser.
2) When the fight starts Ryshana pushes Nic out of the way of an explosion, saving his life. (the after effect of this could be that Ryshana gets injured making it "she would have sacrificed her own life to save mine... <twi'lek swear> I owe someone else.")

XoRRoX
02-05-2006, 07:02 AM

There's a strong chance the current RP will end tomorrow or wednesday... Once we've entered hyperspace, We can do a 'one hour later' Where ryshana is all better and i say she can stay on board.

stinger, Ryshana will have heard of Riebe. She's been in and out of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant since about a year before SW EP1. During those early days, she carried a saberstaff with burnt orange blades. Shortly after the Battle of Naboo, she disappeared for a couple of years. When she returned, her saberstaff was blue and she took a couple of missions for the Jedi before disappearing again.

After three years, Riebe returned again with twin sabers, both green blades, but she also had both of her saberstaffs, the orange and the blue. After that, she stayed fairly continuously at the Temple for three more years.

Two years before 'Attack of the Clones', she went away for about six months.

She made a name for herself during the Clone Wars, fighting alongside the Jedi frequently. Around the Temple she was best known for scolding the Jedi Council. She did this whenever they treated her as just another Jedi. She was not and they knew it; they were afraid of her because of it.

Shortly after the Battle of Naboo, she took an apprentice, Caitlin Bryce. Caitlin learned quickly and was Knighted three years after she became a padawan. The Council allowed Caitlin to be a full Jedi, though her Master had been more of an 'Honorary Jedi'. When Caitlin took on Erica West, Riebe began training Nadira DelCarr. When Nadira learned even more quickly than Caitlin had, the Council exiled her. Riebe took this very hard and vanished again (this was the reason for her vanishing the first time between EP 1 and EP 2).

Still, Riebe remained mostly loyal to the Jedi... until the Council attacked Palpatine. She followed Anakin to where Mace Windu was fighting with Palpatine and watched as the conflict came to an end. She watched Windu get shoved out the window and then, Palpatine turned to her. He revealed that he knew the history of the Sith Hunters and called her a backstabbing fool who should backstab again. She took up Windu's lightsaber along with that of another of the Masters that faced Palpatine and agreed.

She went along with this long enough to vanish. Any Jedi clever enough to escape the purges would have heard that she'd turned against them long enough to slip away into hiding. This may be a point of some bitterness for Ryshana until, later in this chapter, Riebe comes to rescue the crew (they'd been captured) from Darth Vader. Vader stops her, they talk, and then they fight. Neither one wins, but Riebe tells Vader to get to the bridge. His crew is significantly smaller than it was when Riebe and our crew came aboard. She suggests that, perhaps they could use his help in piloting the ship. He leaves and Riebe finishes getting the rest of us out :)

If you havant already noticed i've added links and Synopsis to The stories... So if you already know the title and basic storyline to yours you can send me a Synopsis at any time.

I understand that what people do before you can affest the whole plot to yours so it's not 'set in stone' and can be changed at any time (obviously not after we've started your story).

starmark2k
02-12-2006, 01:22 PM
Hi all
I've been giving some thought to the story after Jasra's (i know it's a long way off but it don't hurt to plan.) and i have what i think is a good idea. Although Nic will be the front man of the story it should give everyone somthing to do.

For this to work i'm going to need to stick a story before Stringers, This will not be long and if done right shouldn't take more than a week to do. The basic story line is we are stopped by imps for a routine inspection and are all seperated & interrogated. This will make it more a collection of short stories than an RP, Although it's to reveal somthing about Nic (which will play in the story after Jasra's) it can be used by all for character development.

The story after Jasra's will basically involve two or three people being captured (Ryshana Can't be captued and either Nic or Jana need to be captured) and taken to Vjun by Darth Vader (Vjun is a place where Vader has built a palace and it rains Acid). He's done this to use the captured as Bait so we'll take Ryshanna to him. The rest involves us escaping. More than that will depend on the fact if that's the last story or not.

Again this is not set in stone but i'd like to hear your opinions. I know it's a long way off (could be a year) so no need to volunteer yet as the stories inbetween could greatly change things.

JasraLantill
02-12-2006, 01:36 PM
I think it's a good story line, StarMark! (Especially since it involves a villian (DV) that we shouldn't be able to kill.) Hopefully, by the time it's ready to take place, we'll know more about any 'special skills' that the individual crewmembers have, and that might make it easier to decide who gets captured and who does the rescuing. But I like it!

ExtreamJedi12
02-12-2006, 09:03 PM

EJ, just curious... at one point didn't you say you'd see him on the SD with Darth Vader? Will that still happen or... hmm... I bet you chase him and he gets away. Then, he watches us and finds out where we're going next and that's why Vader's there with his fleet to capture us... mind if we use Sephiroth that way, EJ?

starmark2k
02-19-2006, 02:38 PM
WJ- This is what i plan on doing if it's fine with you...

Nic collects the crew in the common room to lay down the plan of action, he basically sends Jana and Beryl to sell the Swoops, While him and Ryshana go get some fake IDs for the crew (this way when we are taken by the empire they won't know who we really are and it allows the people doing the following stories more free range). Meanwhile Cloud goes out for revenge, Nic asks oliver and Jack to keep an eye on him and makes sure he doesn't get killed. (if thats fine with EJ aswell). then whatever happens happens we leave corellia then the whole vader thing happens.

Let me know if this is fine, if its not good for you just say, also say if it needs alterations but otherwise fine.

Writer
03-01-2006, 01:47 PM
Not necessary. Cloud's not getting left behind. Impe just went out, found him unconscious, and is bringing him back. He'll wake up and demand that he be allowed to chase Sephiroth. We'll refuse, so he'll run off in the Headhunter and we'll chase him. Up in space, we discover why Cloud left. Sephiroth is just preparing to enter hyperspace. He does and Cloud follows him. Then, we follow Cloud.

After coming out of hyperspace, we all get pulled into the Star Destroyer waiting for Sephiroth. Cloud and Seph get to fight again and Cloud kills Seph. Then, we get captured.

oh just a note about everyones stories. They don't have to start dtrait after the previous one but don't make them any longer than a couple of months after. If you do base it a week or more please fill in the gap so the crew know what they've been doing as we don't want everyone contradicting each other. i.e we dont want one person too say "since the jedi arrived we ain't had a single job." then one to say "that job we had yesterday made a ton of cash."

Writer
03-12-2006, 03:28 PM
I see this going two ways:

First, you could run into Sephiroth and kill him just before Riebe finds you.

Second, you could wait for the story you're in charge of and kill him then.

JasraLantill
03-12-2006, 03:31 PM
Yeah, it looks that way, EJ. ;) Although now that Cloud knows Sephiroth is a Force Adept, your character might want to seek out some training tips from Ryshana in preparation for his next meeting with Sephiroth. Just a suggestion. :)

ExtreamJedi12
03-12-2006, 03:38 PM

starmark2k
03-13-2006, 01:42 PM
^^^ no you don't suck

@ Everyone- O.k because we have 3 of the 10 or so force sensitives in the galaxy, i think we need some kind of reason. This is star wars and stuff like this doesn't happen by coininsiance(sp). I think it should be somthing like Nic or Jana sonehow act as a force magnet drawing these sensitives to them... I suggest Jana as that can be the reason why she has Reibe looking over her. Unless Wild has somthing else planned.

Writer
03-13-2006, 01:51 PM
Yeah, that's fine... and it makes me happier now... unexplained stuff bothers me ;)

Yes, Jana is a 'Force magnet'. That's likely the reason Ryshana felt drawn to approach her in search of passage to Alderaan. Jana isn't extremely Force sensitive herself, but Riebe sticks around to shelter her... Riebe knows that, if Jana were found by the Empire, they would use her to attract Jedi. So Riebe uses her abilities to hide Jana's 'magnetism'. Still, in close quarters, Force sensitives feel drawn to Jana.

03-13-2006, 02:01 PM
well thats somthing i should add into the n & J fan fic.
@wild- Nic is not Force sensitive. But if you want nic to somehow be destined to protect Jana because of some prophercy or whatever let me know.

Writer
03-13-2006, 02:10 PM
That may be part of it... but remember the circumstances in which they met... Nic was going to walk away. It was Jana that chased him and went with him...

03-17-2006, 01:41 AM
well, since the current rp seems to be getting nowhere, and since we've pretty much accomplished what we wanted to accomplish, i think it would be a good idea to just simply post a summary of what we've already decided will happen and move on to the next thread.

that is unless we've just lost all interest in pursuing further rp's with this idea...

My fault, really... I've just been so busy, I've been unable to post recently and, as this one was my story, it suffered. I'll post a general end that includes all of our characters once I get confirmation from all of you that char control is alright in this situation.

Great ending, WJ! :) So, Starmark, when is the next chapter starting? It's Steven's turn for a story, yes?

Yes. I'm still think of a plot. Pm any suggestions you may have.

Okay, before we go any further, Steven, can you give a hint on what you have in mind for Jack's story?

steven
03-23-2006, 01:53 PM
We meet with one of the Dreadnoughts, who is corrupted and he offers us a job to search for a relic from the clone wars which has something to do with Jacks past.

Is it too late to join? the new rp? (steven's.)

starmark2k
03-26-2006, 03:59 PM
o.k heres the deal, I'm going to put it up to a vote if Rav can join. Here are the Three options. Every player gets 1 vote, majority wins. don't feel obliged to say yes just to be nice, if you think it will ruin RP say so.

1 yes to permanent join- Rav can create a character and we will come up with a reason for him/her to join the crew.

2 Yes to 'guest' join (only with Stevens permission)- Rav can create a character with steven that is sensitive to the story and will only appear in the current story

3 No- self explanitory.

Note- if you vote no.2 also put a secondary vote incase steven says a no to him being a guest.

RaV™
03-26-2006, 04:08 PM
Does it have to be a unominous decision or just one vote over one?

starmark2k
03-26-2006, 04:10 PM
It's majority wins so one vote can tip the balance.

JasraLantill
03-26-2006, 04:11 PM
I'll go for Option 2, but if Steven doesn't agree, then Option 3 (mainly because I'm not sure what the new character's position would be on the Echo.)

RaV™
03-26-2006, 04:12 PM
And, if i'm allowed in I'll someway be apart of the mercenary crew? Like not a Sith who was sent by Vader to capture you all? Nothing like that?

JasraLantill
03-26-2006, 04:27 PM
I suppose it depends on what type of character you would be playing. If you develop one that fits into the current crew structure, I'm not opposed to you joining the crew. But it's really up to Steven as it's his thread at the moment.

starmark2k
03-26-2006, 04:28 PM
If option 1 is decided on Rav's Char will probably be a force sensitive(non-trained) to keep with the Jana storyline.

If it's option 2 Your Characters purpose will be desided by Steven and Rav.

RaV™
03-26-2006, 04:32 PM
I think if it's okay with everyone else that I play a Dark Jedi who was gave the order from Vader to capture the crew members of the Echo, but in the end I get killed (in the end of the roleplay i suppose.) So whichever of the choices will work out, but I tag along until some sort of trap?

Starmark your voting as well I suppose?

steven
03-26-2006, 04:33 PM
I'd say 2. He could be the corrupt Dreadnought captain that sends us looking for a relic from the clone wars but that dark jedi idea isn't bad.

Writer
03-26-2006, 06:01 PM
I'll vote for 2... the crew's pretty well complete... I just can't figure a place to add another (unless Jana wins out and Nic hires a chef... and I really can't picture a Dark Jedi becoming a chef :p )

XoRRoX
03-27-2006, 11:37 AM
Well - i would say 2. But if it fits the RP, he could join? :)

ExtreamJedi12
03-27-2006, 07:46 PM
I wouldn't mind another person joining he crew. And I don't mind him trying to kill us either. 1 or 2.

RaV™
03-27-2006, 08:36 PM
So what shall I be? (I think being the Dark Jedi would be much more interactive with the roleplay), but it's entirely up to you.

XoRRoX
03-28-2006, 02:12 AM
A Dark jedi could be nice - it will suit the RP with Jana.

In RP: My person is dying right now. But there isen't anyway to save him. How do you think, i should save him? (if i should save him :P). He is dying because of his old freind, who has posioned Oliver. If that is good RP? :)

RaV™
03-28-2006, 04:46 PM
Is that question to me or the people of the roleplay? So what shall I be the corrupted General or the Dark Jedi? (If i'm the Dark Jedi I can be killed off at the end just, because of the 2nd choice everyone seems to choose..)

steven
03-28-2006, 04:48 PM
Well looks like your going to be the dark jedi but your only going to be allowed to meet and fight the crew untill I say so.

RaV™
03-28-2006, 05:03 PM
Well do you just want me to start off, by Vader commanding me to recapture you all?

ExtreamJedi12
03-28-2006, 05:43 PM
Idea: Sephiroth(Cloud's Sith enemy. See MC: AOTE: Old Friends and New Jobs for more info.) travels with RaV's charecter to find us.

stingerhs
03-28-2006, 06:44 PM
i think it would make more sense if your character was someone that was still carrying out the Jedi Purges by hunting down and killing any Jedi that remained. Given Ryshana's backround of being on the run, it would make sense if your character was specifically looking for Ryshana.

RaV™
03-28-2006, 06:52 PM
I love the idea Stingerhs! If I do this idea should I one way or another be a member of your crew or just hunt the crew down and where would be a place to start my roleplay at in the rp?

stingerhs
03-28-2006, 06:55 PM
that desicion lies with Starmark2k, not me. ;)

RaV™
03-28-2006, 07:06 PM
Oh okay, well I appreciate the idea anyway. (check your inbox Stingerhs.)

starmark2k
03-29-2006, 07:45 AM
As it seems to be fine with Steven you are a Dark Jedi under the Empires command to hunt the remaining Jedi... Now you can start it with you being breifed by the emperor or you can start as if your char has been hunting Ryshanna for a while.

Now as a few peeps did select option 1 we will conider this a trial as well, Basically when we are close to the end we'll have another vote to see if you will be a permanant addition, You'll probably convert if we(and you) want you to stay around otherwise you and ryshanna will probably saber fight to the death.

You don't need to do a Char sheet unless you want to.

XoRRoX, are you wanting anyone to save Oliver, or are you planning to do that on your own? Just asking because it appears that Jana is returning to the ship and she would most likely discover Oliver lying in the corridor. (And the idea of going after a posioner sounds okay to me as an RP topic.)

JasraLantill
04-05-2006, 03:49 PM
Erm...arrested? Again? Leaving only Jack, Jana, and Oliver (who's still sort of sick, right?) the only crewmembers on the Echo? I don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather not split up the crew at the present moment.

Steven, could you give us a hint on where the story is going and why being taken to a prison on another planet is necessary to the plot? I'd rather just find out what Carmen's business is with Nic, get back to the ship with the supplies, and go with the story from there. Jana's been waiting for an answer from the Dreadnaught captain for 35 posts now as to why he wanted to speak with her and he hasn't yet answered. I know there is a lot of bureaucacy in the Empire, but... c'mon! ;)

Ok guys i'm going to go into Nic's backstory basically because it seems like another person is going into a similar direction and i don't want it to seem as if i'm ripping them off. I'll put it in a spoiler tag so if you want it to be a surprise it will be.

Nic White isn't his real name, He changed it after he left naboo. He left naboo because he ended up killed his brothers wife, although the circumstances made it unavoidable he felt so guilty he left the planet

It won't help to skip the story, Steve. Our current problem is that about half of us aren't posting regularly any more. At the moment, I think we're waiting for a post from Stingerhs. As for creating a new RP... well, I wanna finish this one! It had so much structure and was turning out very well. Let's see if we can't tough this lull out. I bet that, once school starts and people are around their computers more frequently, it'll pick up again... I hope :confused:

Hi guy's i'd just thought i would share an idea i had for a run of Fan-fic's based around this RP. I have had Ideas for a series of stories that start from the Jedi joining the crew and will end with an '8 years story'. Obviously i will be using characters created by you lovely people(i should have started the flattery earlier but it's too late for that now) and i don't want to do it without your permissions. So I will give you an idea of changes i'll be making by adding short character Bio's and breif synopsis of the stories. Let me know if this is OK and if you would like me to make any changes (I.e change the name as you don't mind me doing the stories but you would prefer me not to use the same name.)

Bios
Nic White- Nic White was born Simon Raikelli as a twin and raised in the capital city of Naboo, Thread. His mother was one of the queens handmaidens (not Padme’s) so he was brought up within the walls of the palace and his father was a Lieutenant in the Naboo security force. While Children Nic and his Brother, Kriss, became friends with a young girl called Tanya. The three of them remained good friends throughout there childhood and all of them joined the NSF. Nic and Kriss both feel in love with Tanya but Nic did not act on his feelings leaving Kriss free to marry her.
Soon after joining the NSF the Clone war began, Naboo only saw small fragment of the war and was only attacked once causing the Republic to place a base on the planet. This caused the Naboo security force to only take on low level policing., which led to Nic joining the Naboo Elite Guard (N.E.G). He trained as a sniper and remained as one until the war was almost over. During what was to become his last mission he accidentally shot Tanya leaving him distraught and filled with guilt.
He took to the stars and changed his name, as he couldn’t stay on the world of his sin, he joined a small team of mercenaries where he learnt new skills. While in the team he ended up playing a game of Pazzack with a wealthy crime-lord known as Carmen. The stakes got to high for him and he ended up betting his services as a Body Guard, he lost and ended up spending a strange six months with the crime boss. When this period ended he smuggled himself onboard a ship trying to get to Irodia, but was discovered and literally dropped off on Coruscant. While looking for a way off the world he found himself in bar and trying to help a waitress, Jana.
Nic has sworn to protect Jana for reasons unknown to himself but has done it never-the-less.

Jana ‘short stuff’ Vincent- Jana was brought up on Corellia by her mother and father in one of the Coronet Suburbs. Because of her short stature her parents were concerned with her safety and sent her away to the T.C.T.A where she excelled.
She was quickly found to have a gift in many forms of martial arts combat and learnt how to use a variety of weapons and use improvised ones. She also got the highest scores in turret simulations and was equally first-rate at the real thing. While at the Academy she ended up getting a close relationship with one of the Combat instructors known as Reibe.
When she left the Academy she decided to explore the galaxy and collected her money together and headed for the core worlds. She only got as far as Coruscant when she ran out of money and went looking for work as a turret gunner. Unfortunately for her no one took her seriously due to her size despite her record at the T.C.T.A and ended up taking what work she could. She ended up working in restaurants and cantinas but due to her short fuse she kept getting into fights, which led to her getting fired. In one fight she ended up being helped by Nic White and started working with him as a mercenary.
She looks to Nic like an older Brother and has always wondered why she has stuck with him for so long and why he has let her.
Unknown to herself Jana is a ‘Key’ to the force and had been prophesised to be the one who can be used to destroy the force. She is the ancient ancestor of Reibe who has persuaded Nic to protector from the ‘Order of Traya’ an ancient cult who wish keep the universe balanced and destroy the force.

Cloud Aragu- (I’m changing the last name so I wouldn’t be copying the FF franchise) Cloud was born on the peaceful world of Alderaan and raised by his mother. His father left his family home when cloud was only nine to go and fight in the clone wars and never returned. He often spent his evenings looking out into the stars wandering where his father was and dreaming about travelling the stars.
Cloud was very intelligent and intuitive from a young age and quickly found a passion for engines and mechanics. He implemented these skill during his adolescence by supping up his friends racers and getting a job in a local ship-dock fixing up independent ships.
Despite his vast intelligence and the fact his family had enough money he chose to leave school at 16 and became a full time mechanic. A year after leaving school the Echo came to Alderaann after only recently being won by Nic white. It was in need of repair as the captain had chosen to fly it’s first trip without a mechanic and cloud was assigned the repair job. The Echo’s pilot Aerith often spent time with cloud during his repairs and persuaded Nic to recruit the young man.
Cloud jumped at the chance to explore the stars with the group of mercenaries and also found love onboard the ship with Aerith. Unfortunately for Cloud, Aerith like most mercenaries had made some enemies and had a bounty placed on her head. A Bounty Hunter known as Kason(Changed the name for same reason as before) came after her and killed her but not before Cloud tried to stop it and seriously wounded the bounty hunter. Kason has vowed revenge on Cloud as Cloud also vowed revenge for the loss of his love.


Oliver Van Impe- Oliver grew up on the fields of Dantooine as the son of a farmer, He was privileged with excellent education and eventually ended up going to medical school to train as a doctor. He learnt a lot about cybernetics and took it up as his speciality.
He graduated when the Clone War began and decided to sign up and become a medic on one of the republic’s medical ships. He spent these years replacing lost limbs and other parts of the body with new cybernetic ones onto the clones and enlisted troops. He was very quickly thought to be one of the foremost authorities in the field as the war came to the end and was promoted through the Republic’s ranks.
At the end of the war he stayed on and utilised his skills in Cybernetic implants to aid the Imperial Navy’s storm troopers and officers. He ignorantly went about his duties believing all the imperial Propaganda and believing he was doing his part for ‘Galactic Peace’.
One day he was ordered to the Wookie home-world to help in the re-education of the primitive species. He began working on new Cybernetic equipment he believed would be used to increase the Wookie’s intelligence when in reality they were being used to help subjugate the species. He soon found out the truth and managed to leave the imperial ranks.
With his eye’s now open to the truth he saw the galaxy for what it was and he could not take that he was apart of it. He soon took to drink trying to forget the things he had done. With no job, money or anything else Oliver joined some criminals as a medic and this soon led to him meeting the crew of the Echo. Oliver saved Nic’s life after he had gotten shot by a sniper and Nic took him on as his ships medic.

Jack Goren- Jack was born and raised on Naboo into a family with a long military tradition and Jack didn’t break it. He joined the Naboo Security force and began to train as a fighter pilot in the Royal Guard. He earned his place as one of the N1 pilots and because of the worlds peaceful stance he only ever flew in display shows and saw no combat
When the trade federation invaded his home-world jack was one of the captured pilots that were freed by the Jedi and journeyed to Coruscant via Tatooine. After the unsuccessful Senate meeting Jack also returned to Naboo with the queen. He was with the fighters that attacked the Droid Control ship in orbit of Naboo while the Gungan’s fought on the ground. While fighting Jack took a bad hit and lost engine power, Drawn by the planets gravity he went swirling into Naboo’s atmosphere and bailed out.
He was knocked out before he hit the ground by a piece of debris and awoke with two men standing over him. One of the men knocked him out again and Jack awoke a second time aboard a strange ship. His captors explained to him that they were apart of the ‘order of Traya’ and they had sought him out as he was neutral through the force (a rare occurrence).
Jack joined the order and served then for 20 years in their task to keep the order neutral and to seek ‘the key’. Then he was sent to kill one person so light in the force she disrupted the galactic balance. Jack went to kill her but discovered that he was sent to kill a girl of only five years old, Jack couldn’t bring himself to do it.
Jack was quickly thrown out of the order and had his memory of his service to them erased. He woke up on Tatooine with no knowledge since the moment he bailed out of his Fighter back on Naboo. It didn’t take him long to hear about the Clone War and the Empire taking over the galaxy but he could not discover anything about himself.
A couple of years past and he didn’t leave Tatooine, he had decided that he probably didn’t want to know about the last 20 years although he was still curious about the lost years. While walking through the market he saw a man running from a couple of Thugs on Swoop bikes and decided to help the guy out. The man was Nic White and he owned a ship that needed a Pilot.

Beryl ‘Psycho’ Quitann- Beryl’s mother died during her birth so she was raised by her father and six brother at there estate on Corellia. Beryl’s father was one of the top engine designers in galaxy and this made his very wealthy but he still brought his children up himself. Beryl’s Brothers had the effect of making her a Tom boy, she loved to fight, engines and all kinds of things a Lady shouldn’t.
While she was very young a Jedi came to her father with a proposal to build new fighters for the temple. The Jedi felt that the force was strong with beryl and told the father she needed to be trained, not wanting to loose his daughter he turned the Jedi away and never told beryl of her affinity.
Beryl’s father decided to send her to the TCTA as she wished to become a pilot and she had great skill at it. While there she became known as a risk taker and a person who liked to push the boundries which once led to her destroying half of the main comm. tower. Her father paid the bill for repairs and persuaded the school to keep her on but she earned the Nickname ‘Psycho’ .
After graduation she joined her fathers company as a test pilot. When the clone war began all of her brothers went to fight against the separatists and beryl wanted to go with them but her father made her promise not to go. When the war ended three of her brothers returned as two died in battle and one stayed in the imperial army.
Not long after her father died and Two of the brothers left and joined the rebellion while the last brother started a transport company (secretly a smuggling ring for the rebels). The company was sold to the Empire on her father’s death so Beryl lost her job and ended up taking a job on one of her brothers blockade runners. On one mission her ship was captured and she got bailed out by her brother (despite her protests). She found herself in a bar gambling with anyone who would play including Nic White, Nic wagered a position on his crew and Beryl won.

Ryshana- With Ryshana I don't want to do anything differant as he will have her in his stories. So when it comes to exploring her past i'll like to work with him on it... But if Stringerhs is against the Idea of using Ryshana i would like to create a differant jedi although i would prefer to use a RY.

Stories

i really like the idea, so go for it. just as a hint, i'm going to be really getting into Ryshana, as she'll be a new character in my next 'Betrayal and Retribution' fanfic, so you'll be able to get a lot of backstory on her when i write it up (i've delayed posting it as i want a more complete work to be posted just about all at one time rather than bits and pieces at a time).

one thing to note is the idea you had with Jeez. interestingly enough, i already had something planned there with my RP, whenever its my turn, anyway. if you want a bit of collaboration there, give me a pm. ;)

None of the stories are set in stone (Except the first one, as i've already started it.) but they were just basic ideas i had which worked with the story arc. I just felt i needed at least one story which dug into Rys past and also connected it to the whole Jana being a 'key' to the force plot that runs all the way through the 'series'. I think you can tell from the synopsis that i'm adding a love story between Nic and Beryl that never goes anywhere untill the end.

My, my, my you've been busy, StarMark! Felt like I was reading an episode guide for a new TV-series. :) Feel free to use Beryl however you'd like to in your stories. I'm looking forward to reading them! :)

P.S. And I like the idea of Beryl going to the Dark Side. Given that she's untrained, and is a bit mischievious anyway, that's probably exactly what she would do if she were to be fully aware of her potential.

I'd make a few changes to that Jana bio...

Oh, and so everybody knows, I'll be offline mostly 'till this weekend, I think. We're in the process of moving and our Internet connection hasn't made it to the new house yet. See all y'all laters.

Ok in what way would you like it changed, providing It's not the whole 'Key' thing it should be fine. The 'key' part is fairly pivitol to the whole plot and plays a part in the big climax at the end of the thing.

As three of you have said yeah i'll pretty much consider that as the Go ahead unless someone pops up and says No. With that i'll attempt to do a Story a month providing i Stuff in the real world doesn't get in the way.

I'm halfway through the first one so i won't post that until' i've finished it, If you guys want to check it out before i post it PM me your e-mail and i'll send it in a format you request.(this will also allow you to have some input and let me edit it before it goes to the masses... or the three people who decide to read it)

No, no, nothing like that. Just one thing, really: In the TCTA, Jana knew Riebe as Tarla Vel. It wasn't until much later that her real name, Riebe Sothe came out.


Oh, and I'm still workin' on the final chapter of the N&J story. Expect the final edited version sometime early next week, I think. And Starmark, if you're wanting an editor for any of these, I'm still open. But this'll be the last time I'm online 'till this weekend, when our 'net connection finally makes it over to the new house.

See ya all laters,

WJ

If you'd like to Edit them i'm more than happy to let you get at 'em as your Edits do greatly improve on the story. I'll also make sure the Bio is edited for the stories.

It would be a pleasure, Starmark. As you write, send 'em over. It'll give me something to do when I feel like doing nothing else... pretty much all the time :p

Ok, in regards to my last post. I'm not sure who is approaching us. Could be Ryshana. Could be Stormtroopers. Could be Jack. Could be Beryl's brother Rayne or someone who works for him (as it is Rayne's hanger). Or a combination of any of the above. It's sort of dark and shadowy in the hanger, so Nic, Jana, and Beryl shouldn't be able to tell who they are until they are right in front of them.

At any rate, I'd like either Nic, Jana, or Beryl to jump him. (Or at least attempt to, if it's a 'friendly' approaching us.) We haven't had a fight scene in a while and I think it's time we have one. :)

Yay! Welcome back, EJ! :) Hope you had a great summer (even without a good internet connection. ;) ) The thread's been pretty slow over the past two months, so hopefully it won't take you too long to catch up on all of the old posts.

But, if you're short on reading time, here's where we are at the moment: Jack, Cloud, and Oliver have been on the Echo while Nic, Jana, Ryshana, and Beryl captured the data from Moff John Butcher about the Rhea's whereabouts, and then returned to the ship (after having to go and 'fetch' Jana after she got ditched off her swoop bike.) And now they're all back together again, they've got the data for the location of the Rhea. Vader's looking for them, and so the Echo is making her getaway from Corellia hidden in the belly of a behemoth freighter (owned by Beryl's brother.)

So, EJ, you're just in time to pick up where you left off! :)

StarMark, I have a question. Is Sephiroth still the name of Cloud's enemy in the RPs?

steven

Why would I change it? Sephiroth is not envolved in this rpg anyway what-so-ever.
