The last thread I made on the Time War was lame. I admit that. This one, however, actually has some planning behind it. I also know a great deal more about the Time War, unlike when I attempted this last time.

The term Time War can be applied to at least two types of time-spanning conflicts in the Doctor Who universe. The first type of time war is where the two sides are fighting the war across different points in history, separated by centuries or even millennia. The second type of time war is where Time itself is used as a weapon, with pre-emptive strikes, time loops, temporal paradoxes and the reversal of historical events. This Time War is the latter type.

The two sides in the Last Great Time War, the Time War that this story takes place during, was fought between the Time Lords of Gallifrey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Lords) and the Dalek Empire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daleks). Initial clashes included the Dalek attempt to infiltrate the High Council of the Time Lords with duplicates (Resurrection of the Daleks, 1984), and the open declaration of hostilities by one of the Dalek Puppet Emperors (Davros in Remembrance of the Daleks, 1988); although the Daleks claimed that these were merely in retaliation for the Time Lords' sending of the Doctor back in time to change Dalek history in Genesis of the Daleks.

Two specific events have been stated to have led to the Last Great Time War. The first was an attempted Dalek-Time Lord peace treaty initiated by President Romana under the Act of Master Restitution (a possible reference to the otherwise unexplained trial of the Master on Skaro at the beginning of the Doctor Who television movie, 1996).
The second was the Etra Prime Incident (The Apocalypse Element), which some say "began the escalation of events."

the timelines of lesser races and planets shifted without the inhabitants of the worlds affected being aware of the changes in history, as they were a part of them (presumably including humans). "Higher Species" who were able to notice the changes included the Forest of Cheem, who were distraught at the bloodshed; the Nestene Consciousness, which lost all its planets and further mutated; the Greater Animus, which died; and the Eternals, who apparently fled this reality in despair, never to be seen again.

I need characters from the good side only. No Daleks. Sorry, that's just the way things are. You can be a Jedi, a Smuggler, or anything else you want to be. Time Lords are allowed, but I request that only people with knowledge of Doctor Who and the Time Lords create a Time Lord character. Also, no more than two people other than myself may play as a Time Lord - just to keep things running smoothly.

The story will take place in the time of the Old Republic, since I know next to nothing about the post-Galactic Empire galaxy. More specifically, it will take place three years before the Mandalorian Wars. Basic RPing rules and character sheets apply.

I will be playing the Doctor. He has no companions at this point, and is currently in his Eighth regeneration.

Steven, the Time War has not begun in this galaxy yet. The Daleks haven't arrived here. My plan is to start the RP at the beginning of the Time War (as far as the Star Wars galaxy is concerned, anyway). Please edit your post accordingly.

I think i'll take Abslom Daak, dalek hunter, if you don't mind me wrestling in on your game.

Name : Ablsom Daak
Species: Human

Biography : Convicted of "23 charges of murder, pillage, piracy, massacre and other crimes too horrible to bring to the public attention" in the mid-26th Century, when the galaxy was embroiled in the Dalek Wars, he was given the choice between being vapourized or entering into exile and becoming a Dalek Killer. Transported to the planet Mazam which was under attack by the Daleks, he destroyed a Dalek task force single-handedly and rescued the Princess Taiyan, with whom he fell in love. Tragically, however, she was killed by a Dalek survivor that Daak had overlooked, leaving Daak grief-stricken and vowing to exterminate every Dalek in the galaxy. (copied from wiki entry)

Looks good, Xbx. So he's the Doctor's age, approximately, though only in his third regeneration, correct?

FFWM, I'm going to start the thread now, as I'm getting excited about this story. Let me know when you post your charater sheet, so I don't forget about you completely. :P

The first post is fairly long, but I needed to get some background in. I just want to clarify one thing - the Chancellor is not an NPC. Only I can control him, at least for now.
