View Full Version : Republic Strike Team: Discussion & Recruitment Thread

01-31-2006, 04:07 PM
I’ve decided to do what I did with the Mercenary Crew RP with another RP that needed more planning to it. Now this one is far more open to debate in the characters available and when it is based.

Basic Plot
The Republic under the Command of Supreme Chancelor Palpatine has entered into War with the Confederacy of Independant Systems (CIS). The Sepritist Droid Armies would have been unstopable if Obi Wan Kenobi did not discover the Clones on Kamino. Still unaware of the full story of how and Why the clones where created the Jedi became generals leading the clone fleets in many battles.

Some missions however needed to be done with a smaller Force, Several units were created some made up entirely of jedi others of clones, But one force was created to take the most urgent and dangerous missions. This team was made up of Jedi, Clones and other soldiers and named Strike Force Alpha (SFA).

The First Mission
A small CIS Research base has been detected on dantooine, it is beleived that the Sepritist are using this facility to develop a Bio weapon made to target and kill the Republic Clones. You are to infiltrate, Retreive and destroy all Data consearning this research... The Base should then be neutralised to prevent any further activity in this region.


The Ship
For arguments sake it will be the Echo so I don’t have to draw another interior unless anyone else feels like doing one. But I’ve changed the name to the Light-Seeker

Rough internal Layout- http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a...mark2k/Echo.jpg

A medium corellian Freighter. 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 Light republic fighter ('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 'headhunter', 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.

Headhunter is the fighters nick-name not the class as it has not been invented in this time frame.

Positions (on a first come first serve basis. Take one crew position and one team position)

Team positions
Team leader- Klinton Kross (Dylan Klay)
Sniper- Eric 'Echo-96' Goren (steven)
Demolitions- TC 3048 'four-Eight' (RobQel-Droma)
Science/mechanical Expert- Corando 'Black' Blackdelve (Killwithhonor)
Weapons Master- Erra Jans (wildjedi)
Healer- Kilala 'Kiki'
Watchman- Charles 'Trip' Tucker III (The Doctor)

Crew positions
Captain - Klinton Kross (Dylan Klay)
Fighter Pilot- Eric 'Echo-96' Goren (steven)
Engineer- Charles 'Trip' Tucker III (The Doctor)
Medic- Kilala 'Kiki'
Turret gunner- TC 3048 'four-Eight' (RobQel-Droma)
Second Turret gunner- Corando 'Black' Blackdelve (Killwithhonor)

How you were Selected-

Rules- RP forum rules are standard
no 'super' character
no killing without Permission
No char controlling
Thread master controls all 'plot sensitive' NPCs and the Admiral/Master general who will give the missions.

I’m going to define what I mean by ‘super’
A Non-Jedi super character is either a Species that is nearly indestructible (Example: Gen’dai). A member of a species (Example: Human) Which has abilities vastly superior to the rest of the species. This can be a due to genetic Engineering, cybernetic implants (The exception to this part of the rules is a robotic hand to replace an amputated one, But the arm is no stronger than a normal one), etc… A Person with Armour or equipment which make then nearly invincible.
In Jedi a super character is one as powerful or more powerful than Vader/Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Palpatine, Malak, Revan or the Exile and if they are a species or have equipment that makes them nearly invincible.

I put this Rule in as ‘super’ characters make it unfair to other players.

My Character

Position: Stealth Commando
Name: San'kra Kuo
Nickname: Sand Man
Species: Zabrak
Sex: Male
Age: 27
Alignment: Slightly Dark
Appearance: Tall, semi-Muscular, Sharpened Horns, Scar cut down from top of right eye to right cheek, Small Tatoo of a serpant over his left eye
Weapons/Equipment: Silenced Blaster pistol, Long Knife, Stealth Suit and Belt.
Bio: Sankra was born into the military, His Father was a general on the irodian Army, so it was no surprise when he joined the Army as soon as he could. He Quickly became noticed to have great skill in stealth and infiltration.

How you were sealected: When the Clone War began the Irodian Army lent their services to the Supreme Chancelor. Sankra was an obvious Choice for the Special mission with his skills.

We can work out relationships between the characters later. This can be how Characters are related, married or old friends. This will also be a For working out how you feel about each character.

Remember that your Character Sheet does not have to be ‘set in stone’ as relationships will change things. You can change your character for whatever reason or add stuff to it until we start the actual RP.

01-31-2006, 04:11 PM
I vote clone wars and I would like to the sniper commando please. I'll post my character tomorrow

01-31-2006, 04:15 PM
We won't be doing character sheets untill We have had the time and team type sorted out... I'm guessing you want Commandos only?

The Doctor
01-31-2006, 04:18 PM
I think it would be cool to play in the Sith war. I'd be on the Jedi team, probably the Force Master.

01-31-2006, 04:23 PM
I vote for the Clone wars and i think it should be commandos only cause i think the jedi would be taking everything before we could get there
Didnt see the other post, I want the demolition part of the Commandos if we do have commandos that is

01-31-2006, 04:27 PM
I guess I'd be on the Jedi team...a healer...and I'd rather have the Sith War too...

01-31-2006, 04:27 PM
Kill we are not doing character sheets let we are only desiding when to base the RP (clone war from EP 1 and 2 or Sith War from KotOR 1) and What kind of team members there will be which is a choice between 1) jedi only 2) Commandos only 3) Jedi and Commando Mix.

and can people please stop reserving the character on a just in case basis.

The Doctor
01-31-2006, 04:29 PM
O, if we can have both, I think it should be both Jedi and Commandos. That way nobody feels left out or anything.

01-31-2006, 04:33 PM

01-31-2006, 05:16 PM
I'd go for the Jedi/Commando mix, but I've been in RPs like that... let's just say the Commandos tend to get left in the dust because the Jedi have the Force.

As for time setting, I'd say Clone War... it's a fun time to be a Jedi... until Order 66 :D

The Doctor
01-31-2006, 05:18 PM
Maybe the Commandos could try to carry out Order 66 on the Jedi!

01-31-2006, 05:28 PM
Hmm... that'd be an interesting RP... I sorta suspect anyone with a Jedi would want his/her Jedi to live through it (I know I would since I've already got a character on FanFiction.net that would do well in those circumstances :) )

01-31-2006, 05:32 PM
That would be interesting....

01-31-2006, 05:35 PM
no character gets left out as long as the person playing the role is creative, has forethought on possible situations their character can face, and they know what their characters are capable of doing. ;)

after that, i vote Jedi/Commando mix. and after playing Republic Commando for the eighth time through, i vote Clone Wars. :D

The Doctor

Hmm... that'd be an interesting RP... I sorta suspect anyone with a Jedi would want his/her Jedi to live through it (I know I would since I've already got a character on FanFiction.net that would do well in those circumstances :) )

I wouldn't mind letting Amol die off at some point during the story. Might be kinda' fun!

01-31-2006, 06:04 PM
Yah... I suppose if I created an all new character, I wouldn't mind letting that one die... but I've got a whole little story-line of my own going on at FanFiction.net... I've got scattered bits of history here (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/294081/) (all but the 'what if' story are part of my SW history ) and I don't exactly want to change that history... made that mistake in another RP here and haven't been much able to write on those since...

01-31-2006, 06:05 PM
I actually wouldn't mind having my player die. It would be...a new twist for me :xp:

01-31-2006, 06:10 PM
Me either, at the start i wanted my guy to die in an epic battle which he had planted a bomb then called for backup and got overrun as he detonated the bomb, then crew found his body scattered in pieces, lol

The Doctor
01-31-2006, 06:11 PM
Exactly. There's nothing wrong with your character dying. I change my vote to the Clone Wars era!

01-31-2006, 06:12 PM
Alright then, that settles it! Let's go for Clone Wars, Order 66, and Jedi deaths abundant! :D

01-31-2006, 06:22 PM
lol, wooohoo im all in for it! Clone Wars, Order 66 here i come!

The Doctor
01-31-2006, 06:24 PM
^ Don't get to excited... starmark2k decides what happens and when.

Dylan Klay
02-01-2006, 09:31 AM
I'd like it to be a Jedi/Commando mix, Weapons master, Sith war (though I could just as easily go with Clone war) and the Co-pilot position (position, don't really care about, but i'm a lousy gunner in the game lol) I'll post my char sheet later :)

02-01-2006, 12:31 PM
O.k Fromwhat i can decifer from the various rambles in the posts above we are going for clone wars with the Mixed Team... I'm stating this now as i already mentioned no reservations before this post count... I'll take what ever is left but i control all the Plot sensitive NPCs including the admiral. Now you do not have to be a clone (infact i'd prefer it if we only had 1 or 2). Positions are as follow...

Team positions
Team leader(jedi or commando)-
Science/mechanical Expert(commando)-
Weapons Master(Jedi)-

Crew positions
Captain (must be Team leader)-
Fighter Pilot-
Medic (must be healer)-
Turret gunner-
Second Turret gunner-

02-01-2006, 12:41 PM

The Doctor
02-01-2006, 01:12 PM

EDIT: Sorry, Rob. If I had known you were gonna go for it, I would have picked something else.

Dylan Klay
02-02-2006, 06:51 AM
Since I like playing as Jedi and Weapons master is already picked, I'll be Team leader.

Position: Team Leader
Name: Klinton (pronounced Clinton) Krosse (cross)
Species: Miraluka
Age: 35
Apperance: Tanned, big features (nose, ears, mouth). Tall, albeit muscular, he doesn't look his 6'3" height from a distance. Black hair pulled back in a low ponytail. A multi colored cloth covers his sightles eyes, though sometimes he switches to a headress, which does the same. Jedi robes and a Black cloak.
Weapons:Lightsaber (silver blade)
One of a dwindiling race, Krosse's natural affinity to the Force is a source of some envy. Being Miralukan, he is sightless and, instead, relies on the Force for his sight. His lack of Natural sight has not slowed him down in the slightest, being a natural with his blade; however, his strengths lie in his mastery of the Force. Telekinesses comes easily to him, as does Force Whirlwind.
Becoming a Knight at 25, he has taught only one Padawan, prefering to venture solo or in a group. He goes where the Force takes him, as he is unusually attuned to it. He loves to learn and feels that everyone has something to learn from. Inquisitive and benign, he loves to let his troops find their own answers with him providing subtle hints.

02-05-2006, 03:28 PM
Alright....So. What's going on? Are we starting soon, or...

The Doctor
02-05-2006, 03:31 PM
I was wondering that, too... we gonna get this going, or not?

Dylan Klay
02-06-2006, 02:01 AM
Maybe we should kick it off? I say give her one more day

02-06-2006, 07:08 AM
well we cant really start it off cause starkmark2k has the whole plot, so the rp would probally die without him

02-06-2006, 01:38 PM
O.k Now we only Have one pre-made crew position availible as wildjedi did not select one so this is what i'll do if it's o.k with Wildjedi and Stingerhs. Stingerhs can be a commando/jedi Pilot who is considered the best thats why his position is as pilot (he'll still go on the actual mission with the crew.) While Wildjedi is the Co-pilot in control of forward weapons which it will now have.

I will take control of a 'Stealth Expert' Commando as all other positions have been taken. As i'm not sure if recliner will return i'm closing recruitment now for all except him (he/she can take a position of Misc Commando/jedi).

02-16-2006, 07:37 PM

The Doctor
02-19-2006, 01:09 PM
Yeah... what's going on with this one? Are we going to start at all, or have you decided to kill it, Starmark?

02-19-2006, 01:41 PM
I'm pretty sure it's dead. but if someone else want's to take control and attempt a ressurection they can go ahead.
