Planning Thread


Prelude

The Saga comes Full Circle...
The events of the Great Jedi Purge mark the fundamental moment in the history of the Star Wars universe. Falling victim to centuries of conspiracy and corruption, the Old Republic and the Jedi Order gives way to the Galactic Empire and the Dark Lords of the Sith, an act of betrayal that changes the course of the entire galaxy.
The Republic is in disarray as the Clone Wars rage across the galaxy. The Army of the Republic battles with the unrelenting Separatists and their Droid Armies. The Jedi devote their considerable power to the war effort, unaware that they are playing into the hands of their ancient enemy; the Sith. Darth Sidious, with the senate in his clutches, manipulates both sides of the war in a Machiavellian plot to dominate the galaxy and be forever rid of the hated Jedi Order. To this end, Anakin Skywalker, long believed to be the Chosen One of Jedi prophecy, falls under the shadow of the Sith Lord. Twisted by Sidious’ lies and haunted by the promise of power, Anakin falls into the depths of the Dark Side and is consumed by the identity of Darth Vader. Clouded by conspiracy and the darkness of the Force, the greatest of the Jedi are too late to prevent the trap closing around them. When at last the pieces fall into place, the Sith make their final move against the Jedi, seizing the reins of the Republic and striking in one fell swoop. Across the galaxy, thousands of Jedi are caught unprepared, as the Clone forces under their command turn on them and mercilessly gun them down.
At the same time, the newly turned Darth Vader marches at the head of a private army of elite Clone Troopers into the Jedi Temple, the very heart of the Order, with orders to terminate every last sentient creature within its halls.

Overview

Yay, my first RP thread! Hello all! Here goes...

Star Wars: Jedi Purge will take place potentially over three story arcs. Five players (four, not including myself) are welcome to join. The first two arcs set the stage for two groups of five characters, allowing the Players to introduce their characters into the setting, before plunging them head-first into the action and allowing them to deal with the consequences. The Third Arc will join the two groups together (Or at least, the surviving members!) and let them deal with the flow of the Arc itself.
The deal here is that each player must submit two characters to role-play, one for each Story Arc. And the big catch is...you can only allow one character to survive. The other character HAS to die. This does not mean you can play favourites. Both characters should be equally fleshed out and just as memorable, even if one has to die. And why not make that death heroic, spectacular and significant? Sacrifice is a central theme of the Star Wars universe.

Arc One – Assault on the Jedi Temple
The first story arc will deal with a small group of Jedi who are enjoying a brief moment of down-time between the hectic and ongoing affairs of the Clone Wars. The opening moments will allow the players to define their characters and connect to each others characters. An interesting outcome would be to apprentice one player’s character to another’s character, opening a mentor/student subplot to explore, though of course, a player can choose simple to have their character’s master off in some planetary dispute. The group will hopefully consist of Padawans and inexperienced Knights, as the more senior members of the Order are mostly caught up in the ongoing Clone Wars.
After a sufficient time for interplay, the events of Revenge of the Sith will reach their height, and the Temple will come under assault by the treacherous Darth Vader and a legion of Republic Troopers. This will happen completely without warning, and will claim many Jedi lives straight off the bat. The players will have to decide whether to make a desperate last stand or flee the temple, which has now become a labyrinth of death. Obviously the latter choice will seem the most appealing (as a confrontation against such overwhelming numbers would be suicide, Jedi or no), though it wouldn’t hurt to take down a clone trooper or two (or twenty) while searching for an escape route. In addition, the precinct surrounding the Jedi Temple will be pounded by turbolaser fire from surrounding Venator-class Star Destroyers, severely hampering any attempt for surviving Jedi to escape the temple this way.
Whether or not Vader himself actually takes part in the Arc will depend on our decisions, though any character who runs into the rampaging Ex-Jedi by accident will almost certainly end up skewered and decapitated (but who knows; players might find it exhilarating to have their characters charge bravely into a glorious death). During the siege he will cut a fairly straight path through the upper levels of the Temple, terminating the Jedi Masters Cin Drallig, Shaak Ti and the historian Jocasta Nu. He then ascends to the summit of the High Council Tower, and dispatches the remaining Jedi Younglings. The Clone troopers spread out from his path and swarm the temple’s inner halls, with detachments scouring the upper and lower sections of the Temple.
The players’ best chance for survival is to descend into the vast network of halls and tunnels that run beneath the bowels of the temple structure. The large maze-like understructure provides an excellent opportunity for subterfuge and stealth as the group attempts to navigate the tunnels and avoid detection by clone hunting-squads.

Arc Two – Betrayal on Ventooine
The second story arc will deal with another group of Jedi who are acting as negotiators during the Outer Rim Sieges on a planet which we can determine during planning. Nowhere as clichéd as Tattooine or Dantooine, but preferably some world that does exist in Star Wars canon. Once again, the players will be given an opportunity to mesh their characters into the setting, establish connections with the other player characters (and perhaps the characters from the first act as well), and generally outline their roles in the conflict.
Order 66 will strike like lightning and catch the characters completely off-guard. Supposedly loyal Clone troopers will turn on and attempt to dispatch their former superiors. The threat of droid armies will give way to the far more dangerous threat of former comrades. Needless to say, it will be messy.
After evading the traitorous clones (hopefully), the characters will need to find a way off the planet, and discover exactly why they are now traitors to the Republic.

Rules

Roleplaying Guidelines:
• No Godmoding
In other words, characters must not be all-powerful Jedi Masters who were the best in their class and can use dark side powers without fear of falling. A character should have as many flaws as he has merits. No character should be better at something then a main character like Obi-Wan Kenobi or Luke Skywalker. They were the focus of the movies for a reason.
• No Character Controlling
Barring their explicit permission, a player may not control another player's character.
• No Out-of-Character Chat
If you need to say something OOC, then type it in ((double brackets)), so as not to break the momentum of the RP.
• The Golden Rule
Have fun. I shouldn't need to tell you this! I'm the new guy, after all! Also, don't be afraid to tell me I'm doing something wrong, or being too stubborn about lightsaber colours, or whatever. I am a deer in the headlights, otherwise. :lol:

Character Guidelines:
NAME
Names from Star Wars canon are exclusively forbidden, including such notables as Skywalker, Sunrider, Quel Droma, Solo and Kenobi. Try to come up with an original name that sounds appropriate for the Star Wars universe. There are several popular methods for fabricating good Star Wars names to be found on the internet. It might just be permissible to create a name related to one of the lesser characters in the Expanded Universe, such as Bindo, Starkiller, Bnar or Onasi, though I think it’s better to start from scratch.
Example: Zeldo Onaar
RANK
Characters are exclusively restricted to the lower ranks in the Jedi Hierarchy, specifically Jedi Initiate and Jedi Padawan. Recently knighted Jedi may also be allowed, but are little stronger then Padawans anyway. The reason for this restriction - other then allowing for balanced play - is because most of the more experienced Jedi are off fighting in the Clone Wars, and are soon to meet their ends.
Example: Jedi Padawan
Age:
Keep in mind that certain Jedi Ranks entail certain age groups, for instance; Jedi Initiates can be no older then 13, upon which they are chosen by a master to train as a Padawan, or else they are relegated to a lesser role in the Jedi Service Corps. By contrast, most Knights are not elevated to the level of Master until they have spent many years training at least one Padawan, so they are generally older then 30 at the very least.
Example: 17 Galactic Standard Years
Species:
Alien characters must be a canonically accepted species in the SW Universe, ie Twi’lek, Zabrak, Mon Calamari, Bothan, Selkath etc. Players should try to avoid the more esoteric and naturally advantaged species such as the Mirulaka or the reclusive Chiss. Also, I am going to go with George Lucas on this one, and say ‘no more Wookiee Jedi’.
Example: Rodian
Gender:
There is very little to say about the available choices for gender. Male, Female, or Genderless (for certain species) are the obvious selections. Some aliens may possess some very unusual physiologies, but they are usually referenced as masculine or feminine for ease of description.
Example: Male
Class:
The available Jedi Classes for lower ranking Jedi are Guardian, Sentinel and Consular. Remember that these distinctions are not used when referring to fellow Jedi. A Jedi is categorised by rank (ie, Knight, Padawan etc), not by class.
Example: Jedi Consular
Weapons:
I strongly recommend that characters take lightsabers as their weapon (because a Jedi using a blaster pistol is just...wrong).
Lightsaber Style:
Jedi Initiates are only permitted to have Training Lightsabers, which are usually non-lethal. Of course, characters should feel free to pick up a proper lightsaber from a fallen Jedi. After all, they won’t be needing it anymore.
Lightstaves (double-bladed lightsabers) are not allowed. It is true that Jedi were seen using them in KotOR, but that is because they were at war with the Sith Empire. A lightstaff is employed purely because it is a more efficient killing weapon, whereas modern Jedi use lightsabers solely for defence, and kill only when necessary. Darth Maul was terrific but he was NOT a Jedi. No double-bladed lightsabers! Okay, maybe I will allow ONE player, but only one! First who submits, gets.
Dual lightsabers (A standard lightsaber in the primary-hand and a short lightsaber in the off-hand) are allowed, but can only be employed effectively if a character has mastered the Jar’Kai variant of Form VI Niman.
Lightsaber Colour:
The following coloured saber blades are allowed: Blue, Green, and Yellow. The colours Orange, Violet and Silver are only allowed if the player can come up with a life-alteringly convincing motive for their character to have risked circumnavigating uncharted regions of the galaxy and braving dangerous worlds in search of such rare crystals, merely for a different coloured saber blade. Yes Mace Windu was awesome, with his violet lightsaber. But Yoda is the coolest of them all, and he only uses a green saber. Good characters are not characters with double-bladed silver lightsabers and supreme mastery over the Force. Good characters are believable, convincing, realistic, and have as many limitations as they have advantages. The commonly occurring Adegan crystals are used for a reason: they are relatively easy to acquire.
The colour Red is not allowed under any circumstances. And regardless of its absurd popularity, Black is not a lightsaber colour! I don’t even want to hear about it! (I know, I am being strict. Suspension of Disbelief is important to me. ^_^)
Lightsaber Forms:
Lightsaber Forms define a characters prowess and personal style wielding the emblematic weapon of the Jedi Order. Jedi initiates are restricted to Form I. Padawans and Knights can have knowledge in the following forms: Shii-Cho, Makashi, Soresu, Ataru, Shien, Niman and Juyo. Keep the restrictions in mind. Shii-Cho must be learnt before any other lightsaber forms can be understood. Ataru requires basic knowledge of both Soresu and Makashi. Shien requires basic knowledge of Soresu, Makashi and Ataru. Niman and Juyo require basic knowledge of Soresu, Makashi, Ataru and Shien. Restrictions for variant forms are as followed. Sokan requires basic knowledge of Ataru. Djem So requires basic knowledge of Shien. Jar’Kai requires basic knowledge of Niman. Vapaad, Tràkata, and Dun Moch are forbidden. Most Jedi learn the basics of several forms anyway, and choose to specialise in the one they prefer.
Example: Lightsaber (Green)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii Cho – Basic
• Makashi – Basic
• Soresu - Advanced
Equipment:
Jedi typically wear Jedi Robes on all occasions. Jedi Jumpsuits are normally worn only during astrogation or starship-oriented missions. Jedi Armour is usually only worn during dangerous battles against the Separatists. Of course, a character can wear whatever the hell its player wants. Jedi robes come in a vast range of styles and colours. A player should feel free to describe their character’s attire in any level of detail – however the only restriction placed on robes is that, while partial black is acceptable, full black robes are obviously forbidden (Full Black = Sith).
Example: Jedi Robes, Personal Datapad
Quote:
Example: “Whaddya mean, Rodian Stench!!! You better ta– There is no emotion, there is peace, there is no emotion, there is...”
Homeworld: Their planet of origin, not the planet they grew up on (which, in the case of most Jedi, is Coruscant).
Example: Rodia
Affiliations: Groups the character is associated with.
Example: Galactic Republic, Jedi Order.
Relations: All Jedi Padawans need masters. Please try to avoid Mace Windu, Yoda or the like for a character’s master. Jedi Knights should have Padawans too, though since characters can only be recently knighted Jedi, it is up to you whether to have an apprentice or not.
Example: Delphi Kyssan (Master)
Languages: Languages the character knows. Galactic Basic is the equivalent of real-world english, and the most common language in the Galaxy. Huttese is another commonly seen language, particularly in the farther reaches of the Galaxy.
Example: Basic, Rodian, Huttese.
History: A character’s history can be as short as a sentence or as long as several paragraphs, depending on the taste or interest of the player. Perhaps the most important aspect of a character’s history is how they became Jedi to begin with.
Example: Zeldo was always different, at least for a Rodian. Where his kin bayed for bloodshed, he dreamed of making the galaxy a better place. Of course, he was shunned all his life for this, and at the age of 4 he was sold to a Coruscanti slave trader by his own family. Fortunately for Zeldo, slavery was illegal in Coruscant. While on a mission to disband the Rodia/Coruscant Slave Trade, A Jedi Knight happened across the young Rodian, and freed him. Recognising his Force potential, The Jedi Knight brought Zeldo before the Council, and his new life as a Keeper of the Peace soon began. Zeldo adapted quickly to the Jedi way of life, finding his ideals suited him best as a Consular. At the age of thirteen he was selected to be the Padawan of Delphi Kyssan, the very same Jedi Knight who rescued him from a life of slavery. With the onset of the Clone Wars, Zeldo has doubled his dedication to his training, seeing his chance to truly make a difference in the Galaxy.

Here are my characters:

Araphas-Serah-Zaszu
JEDI KNIGHT
Age: 32
Species: Sith (Humanoid)
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Sentinel
Weapons: Lightsaber (Yellow)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Form I (Shii-Cho) – Basic
• Form II (Makashi) – Advanced
• Form III (Soresu) – Basic
• Form IV (Ataru) – Mastered
• Sokan (Ataru Variant) – Basic
Equipment: Jedi Robes, Fringer’s Clothes, Personal Datapad, Jedi Comlink
Quote: “There is no emotion, there is peace. No emotion, only peace. The Dark Side is always surmountable.”
Homeworld: Unknown (native to Ziost, raised on Teya IV)
Affiliations: Galactic Republic, Jedi Order.
Relations: Bas Graethu (master, deceased), Yoda (mentor), An’ya Kuro (mentor), Delphi Kyssan (associate, deceased), Ori Creye (associate), Sezam Davee (associate).
Languages: Basic, Huttese, Rodese, Jawa Trade.
History: Araphas is a former student of Master Bas Graethu, and something of a controversy within the Order. He was mysteriously abandoned as an infant, and discovered by Master Graethu, taken in by the Jedi Praxeum on Teya IV. It was soon discovered by the Teyus Jedi Council that he was a descendant of the ancient Sith species, a race of primitive Force-Sensitives long presumed to be extinct. Though a dispute arose concerning the child’s propensity to the Dark Side, ultimately Araphas was taken in by the Praxeum and trained to be a Jedi.
Since that day the red-skinned Araphas has risen to the challenge of his convictions. As a Padawan he accompanied Master Graethu on numerous missions across the Republic, but he was reluctant to elevate to the status of Jedi Knight, which meant leaving his sheltered life on Teya IV, as well as the only family he had ever known. Eventually, he passed the Jedi trials, was granted knighthood and transferred to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
Taking advantage of his natural dexterity and his extensive physical conditioning, Araphas has become a formidable lightsaber wielder. Augmenting his already impressive agility with the Force has allowed Araphas to master Ataru, a very acrobatic Lightsaber form that demands absolute precision and the ability to balance one’s emotions. He is currently branching out into the more exotic and effective Sokan variant of Ataru.
Araphas has yet to take on an apprentice, and is very solitary by nature. He is sometimes viewed with distrust by other Jedi because of his Sith genealogy, except for those who know him well. Though his views on the nature of the Force and the balance between its opposing sides are somewhat questionable, he has never swayed from his unshakeable loyalty to the Order and its calling.

Zeldo Onaar
JEDI PADAWAN
Age: 17
Species: Rodian
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Consular
Weapons: Lightsaber (Green)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii Cho – Basic
• Makashi – Basic
• Soresu - Advanced
Equipment: Jedi Robes, Personal Datapad
Quote: “Whaddya mean, Rodian Stench!!! You better ta– There is no emotion, there is peace, there is no emotion, there is...”
Homeworld: Deralia
Affiliations: Galactic Republic, Jedi Order.
Relations: Delphi Kyssan (Former Master).
Languages: Basic, Rodian, Huttese.
History: Zeldo was always different, at least for a Rodian. Where his kin bayed for bloodshed, he dreamed of making the galaxy a better place. Of course, he was shunned all his life for this, and at the age of 4 he was sold to a Coruscanti slave trader by his own family. Fortunately for Zeldo, slavery was illegal in Coruscant. While on a mission to disband the Rodia/Coruscant Slave Trade, A Jedi Knight happened across the young Rodian, and freed him. Recognising his Force potential, The Jedi Knight brought Zeldo before the Council, and his new life as a Keeper of the Peace soon began. Zeldo adapted quickly to the Jedi way of life, finding his ideals suited him best as a Consular. At the age of thirteen he was selected to be the Padawan of Delphi Kyssan, the very same Jedi Knight who rescued him from a life of slavery. With the onset of the Clone Wars, Zeldo has doubled his dedication to his training, seeing his chance to truly make a difference in the Galaxy.
Delphi, however, was killed on Teya IV, leaving Zeldo without a master. Instead of returning to the temple, the rodian has chosen to serve as a Jedi Healer in the Outer Rim Sieges.
Zeldo is an expert defensive lightsaber duellist, having received training from such notable Masters as Cin Drallig and Ki Adi Mundi. Although he has always been a formidable warrior, he became a skilled diplomat under his former master Delphi Kyssan, and on several occasions he has resolved situations with negotiation that might have otherwise degenerated into combat.

Well, I guess I'm the first, if someone doesn't post before me that is.

Anu Thanatos
Jedi Knight (newly appointed)
Age: 22 Galactic Standard Years
Species: Umbaran (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Umbaran)
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Sentinel
Weapons: Indigo Lightstave; Daggers
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii-Cho - Basic
• Makashi - Moderate
• Soresu - Moderate
• Ataru - Advanced
• Shien - Moderate
• Djem So - Mastered
• Niman - Basic
• Jar'Kai - Moderate/Advanced
• Juyo - Advanced
• Sokan - Basic
Equipment: Jal Shey Advisor Armor w/Mandalorian Helm, Personnal Datapad, Vibro Dagger set, Clone Jet Trooper Jet Pack
Quote: "I knew it! We're dead."
Homeworld: Umbara
Affiliations: Old Republic, Jedi Order
Relations: Denfor Sanyis (Master)(Deceased); Gunner (Friend)(Deceased)
Languages: Umbarese, Galactic Basic, High Galactic, Mando'a
History: Anu was born on Umbara, where he grew up for three and a half years, until a jedi knight and his padawan came to the planet, and soon discovered him. His parents were very unwilling to give him up, but after much deliberation he was finally allowed to go with the jedi, and become one himself. He was eagerly accepted into the order, and was trained under his master, a Jedi Knight named Denfor Sanyis, when he became a padawan, at the age of 14. He soon was realised to be very gifted in his abilities with the force and combat, and was also descent in diplomatic situations, due to his love for alternate, and rare languages.

His master died in the clone wars when he was away, but he died in hospis, and was able to make a small will to Anu. When Anu heard the news of his masters death, he quickly became saddened, and isolated himself from others, not that that was any different than normal, considering most didn't shy up to his personality anyway. He got the will, and with it he got all of his master's personal belongings: his old Jal Shey Armor, a Dagger set, and Danfor's Indigo (Dark Blueish Violet) lightsaber crystal. So at the age of 19 he was masterless, but found a way of training himself, making him mature faster than a normal jedi padawan, even at that old of an age. He went to a heavy war zone in the wars at 20, and quickly found friends in the clones, which seemed to understand his nature more than other people. Another of his friends, Gunner, a Clone Jet Trooper, died, and in his dieing state he gave him his special issue jet pack. Though how Anu gained the Mandolorian helmet, no one is sure, though it's speculated that it was a gift from one of his diplomatic missions.

At 20, around half a year from his twentieth birthday, he was seen to be a very capable padawan, and the masters sent him to his trials to become a knight. He passed, and is now a knight, at the age of 22. Inbetween the age of 20 and 22, is a matter of training, and war in his life. He is at a good height of 6' 6", and is thin like his species, but much more muscular; flexible, and very athletic and acrobatic; has piercing grey eyes, lack of hair.

(I'll Edit my other character in later) - Okay I'm back now!

Sib Diya
Jedi Initiate
Age: 12 Galactic Standard Years
Species: Iridorian (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Iridorian)
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Guardian
Weapons: Blue Training Saber; Quarter Staff
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii-Cho - Mastered
• Makashi - Basic
• Soresu - Basic
• Ataru - Advanced
• Shien - Unlearned
• Djem So - Unlearned
• Niman - Basic
• Jar'Kai - Advanced
• Juyo - Unlearned
• Sokan - Moderate
Equipment: Matukai Robes, Personnal Datapad, Drawing Datapad, and Quarter Staff
Quote: "Woah! Didn't see that one coming!"
Homeworld: Coruscant
Affiliations: Old Republic, Jedi Order
Relations: Renda Darkmarj (Fellow Initiate)
Languages: Galactic Basic, Zabraki
History: Sib was born on Iridonia, but was quickly found by the jedi, and was taken to Coruscant, where he grew up and trained. He was exceptionally skilled at combat, thus his early mastery at Shii-Cho, and movement into other forms. He is a kidder, and a prankster all the way, but in all ways is respectful and mature when times call for it. He grew up with his friend, Renda, who is a female Zabrak, which might explain his strong kinship with her.

He's a simple 4' 8", and is lithe, limber, and acrobatic, plus very stealthy. He is naturally stronger, and more muscular than most boys, due to his training, and species. He has quite an imagination, and is exceptionally gifted in drawing. He gained his Matukai Robes on one of his birthdays, from one of the initiate training masters. He saved up his money to buy the quarter staff he now owns, and uses it more like a walking stave more than anything, but can use it with deadly efficiancy.

Because of his early mastery of the lighsaber form, Shii-Cho, he has been contemplated by the masters for early training, by one of the newly appointed knights, but they aren't sure who. He has a shaven/bald head, and has bright viridian eyes. Also has clan tatoos on forehead, and skull/top of head, which he was given soon after birth.

Homeworld: Alderaan
Affiliations: Jedi Order, Republic
Relations: Nedaj Rrok (Master), Yoda (Mentor), Anakin Skywalker (Friend).
Languages: Basic, Droid, Huttese, Twi'lek, Shyriiwook.
Appearance: He has
History: Alex was born on the peaceful and pastoral planet of Alderaan, but when he was 10 years old, his family had to move, for they were being tracked down by a bunch of mercenaries, led by a Fallen Jedi. His family was lost on the planet of Dathomir, with no guidance, and they were killed by the natural creatures and shot down by the mercenaries who had tracked them down. Enraged, he took up his father's Lightsaber, who was an exiled Jedi who followed the Gray Philosophy, and ignited it, revealing it's natural Teal colour, and struck down the mercenaries with a invisible and imaginary force, and surprisingly slew the Dark Jedi, with only ten years. The boy managed to found a landing port, and snuck inside of one the ships. Discovered, and with fear of being killed, he quickly ignited the Lightsaber, but the person who had discovered it, also ignited a Lightsaber with a orange blade. He was a Kel Dor named Nejad Rrok, who then took him to the Jedi Council, and after very persuasion, since he was of old age, was taken into the Jedi Order as Nedaj's apprentice. He befriended Padawans Darra Thel-Thanis, Ferus Olin and Anakin Skywalker, the one prophetised to be The Chosen One. As the Clone Wars raged on, he participated on a few minor battles, for he was busy with his newly knighted. Now, as only General Grievous remains as a major threat, a dark mantle has clouded the skies of the Force.

"Impossible to see, the future is." - Yoda.

Shii-Cho - Basic
Makashi - Moderate
Soresu - Advanced

History: As an infant, he was found by then Jedi Knight on an assignment, Mace Windu, and he was brought to the Jedi Council. There, he learned the ways of the Force and of Lightsaber combat under many Jedi Masters, and befriended future Jedi Masters Siri Tachi, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon. He was sent on various assignments with his Master, and right after he was knighted, when he made 25 he was sent on an lone assignment to stop a active smuggling activity on the planetary system of Alderaan, and after defeating them, he found a very rare Bondar crystal, who was native of a bondar asteroid. He put it on his Lightsaber, and a very rare Orange blade came out. He was convinced it wasn't over, for the smugglers, who had offered resistance, where allied with mercenaries from the planet of Alderaan below. He followed them onto Dathomir, and then defeated a Fallen Jedi and his group of mercenaries. He then walked more and found out more mercenaries with their bones broken, and another Jedi sliced in half. When he returned to his ship, he found an infant Alex Skyrider, and brought him to the Council. After much deliberation, he then took on the 10-year old infant Skyrider. As the Clone Wars raged on, he was sent on various assignments, and separated from his Padawan. While his Padawan was made a Jedi Knight, he was sent with other Masters to the planet of Ventooine, with a batallion of Clone Troopers, where revenge would be served.

"Afraid, are you? Hmm?" - Yoda.

Wow! I post the thread and go to sleep. Then I wake up and suddenly all the positions are filled! This place rocks!!!

Characters are accepted, providing that Jedi Masters are changed to Jedi Knights or Padawans. The only Masters at the Jedi Temple are Jurokk, Cin Drallig, Jocasta Nu, Shaak Ti, Bas Graethu, and two unnamed masters. The others are off fighting in the Clone Wars. This is a story of the underdogs, of the relatively inexperienced rising to the challenge and surviving where their betters did not.

Yes, Master Archon, you get the double bladed lightsaber.

Dark_Lady...congradulations! I wish I had a decent job...two more years of polytech...two...more...years....<shudders>

Jason Skywalker, love the characters, except - I was under the assumption that Mace Windu already trained Eschuu Shen-Jon and Depa Bilapa, and hadn't taken another padawan since the latter turned to the dark side. Even so, convince me otherwise, and I'll allow it ;)

Now, feedback! Advice! Help me out here! We still need to work out Act Two, namely where the action is set. Then we need to figure out a way for the two groups to join up ultimately for Act Three. Remember, one character will die!

I don't mind killing off Oola, but it's up to you. I'm beginning to enjoy the future of this RP.

10-10-2006, 04:19 PM
Its not up to me at all! You decide which character you want to sacrifice. There are a hundred ways to die in the Jedi Purge, just pick one.

We need to decide which planet in the Outer Rim to set Act Two. Any thoughts?

Well there is Tatooine. In response to post eight, yes this place is one of the best.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 04:43 PM
Nah...not Tattooine...too cliched. Its supposed to be like this unimportant, out of the way planet, and yet for some reason it is integral to the plotline of almost every star wars movie/game/story! Why!? Its a rock!

We have to consider the motives of the Confederacy of Independant Systems. Why would they choose to lay siege to a planet on the Outer Rim, and why would the Jedi deem the planet valuable enough to send a detachment of jedi with a legion of troopers there. It has to be somewhere significant, like a place with an invaluable fuel source or a Jedi Enclave or something. (Not Dantooine. No more enclave there, and its not in the Outer Rim). But where?

Hmm...

Heres a list of battles in the Outer Rim Sieges:

Battle of Bomis Korri IV
Battle of Boz Pity
Battle of Felucia
Battle of Saleucami
Battle of Ord Radama
Battle of Ossus
Battle of Ryloth
Battle of Mygeeto
Battle of Sarrish
Battle of Tythe
Battle of Belderone
Battle of Ywllandr
Battle of Bal'demnic
Battle of Murkhana
Battle of Utapau
Battle of Tellanroaeg
Battle of Garqi
Battle of Acherin
Battle of Toola
Battle of New Bornalex
Battle of Xagobah
Battle of Orto

But I think all these conflicts end before Order 66 takes place. So...where then?

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 05:03 PM
We could make something up... There really aren't very many important Outer Rim planets, and most of them are already playing an important part in the history. We have a long time to think about this anyway. And Dantooine is in the Outer Rim, just to clear that up.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 05:05 PM
Good idea. I suppose we either make up a planet, or find one that is barely mentioned in the Expanded Universe. I'll do some Wookieepedia-digging. (Love that website!)

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 05:07 PM
Oh, me too. It's awesome.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 05:09 PM
How about this:

Ventooine

Region: Outer Rim

Primary terrain: Mountains, Mesas

Native species: Unnamed native species

Immigrated species: Unnamed near-human species

Official language: Basic

Major cities: Goyoikin (capital)

Ventooine was a planet in the Outer Rim. It was freed from the tyrannical Satab by Han Solo and the local Tieress, Chrysalla. The planet exported sansanna spice and crystals.

This looks relatively unknown, and has a trade significance!

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 05:13 PM
Cool. And it even ends with -tooine, like all the other planets we're supposed to think are insignificant! We can carry on a great tradition!

Seriously, though, it sounds great.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 05:18 PM
Yup. THat's what caught my eye. And the only reference to it is an obscure Marvel Star Wars Comic! Its perfect to mold to our expectations.

I wonder how things will progress once I get these arcs started? I was hoping to extend it into the Dark Times after the purge, and see what happens with the surviving characters. Time (and blasterfire) will tell...

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 05:24 PM
Ventooine sounds great, I was gonna suggest Xagobah, then I saw it on the war list, so...yeah.

Oh, and I have my second character now!

10-10-2006, 05:26 PM

Let's at least start the first arc, I cant wait any longer, THE SHOW MUST BEGIN!

Besides, playing out the first arc could help our creative juices in making the other arcs.

*Dribble, Drool, Dribble* WOW!!! I'd say those are excellent! How do you do that kinda stuff? (Yet again my ignorance shines) *stares at floor saddly*

Jason Skywalker, love the characters, except - I was under the assumption that Mace Windu already trained Eschuu Shen-Jon and Depa Bilapa, and hadn't taken another padawan since the latter turned to the dark side. Even so, convince me otherwise, and I'll allow it ;)

Well, maybe he had sensed that the Force was so strong with him, then, he brought him to the council, and wanted to redeem himself, for letting his last apprentice turn to the Dark Side, because of the Vaapad. Also, those banners PWN!

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:08 PM
One question for all! Who wants to be the person appointed to training Sib when the time comes in the thread? Any takers? Okay now, okay, dont all get up at once....

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:10 PM
Thanks! And since your theory holds up, I'll allow you to be Mace's apprentice. I like the idea of redemption...especially since it will never come to pass, Mace Windu being knocked out a window at an unsurvivable height. Awesome.

Thanks for the banner comment. People are so solicitous here. In other forums I've been to, Star Wars fans have been elitist and rather annoying. "You can't be a sith, they're evil and such!" Says who? The True Sith were a Force-Adept species long before the Dark Jedi came. But I'm ranting again, nevermind.

Anything else? Suggestions, sub-plots, or shall we begin?

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 06:11 PM
If he's in Part 1, I'll train him.

By the way, is he an Iridorian or an Iridonian? Just wondering because he speaks Zabraki, which is an Iridonian language, but he's listed as an Iridorian.

Jason Skywalker
10-10-2006, 06:15 PM
Oh and, also, if you read Nejad's bio, you'll see that Alex is in the first story arc. Oh and, Araphas, what exactly happens in part 3?

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:16 PM
Wait, I'm confused, do we play as both characters in each arc, or one character per arc?

But if it's the second then, yes I'll have Sib in the first arc. And you can train him, DL, but with which character?

Edit: - He's Iridorian, but his parents lived on Iridonia, and Renda taught him Zabraki, because she's a Zabrak.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:18 PM
That depends on part one and two. The two groups of five are whittled down, and the survivors meet up to form a new group of five. What happens next is up to momentum and situation.

In other words, I don't know. Up to all of us, really.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:21 PM
We play as one character in each arc. First Character, First Arc. Second Character, Second Arc. Surviving character, Third Arc.

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:26 PM
Friendly warning, try not to double post Araphas.

Does my first character HAVE to be in the first arc, or can Sib? Especially considering Sib's an Initiate, he's not going anywhere, indeffinately!

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:29 PM
Warning taken. Sorry.

Erm...yeah. S'up to you which character is in which Arc. Maybe I should have included a descriptor in the character sheet. Oh well.

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 06:30 PM
Tul Abidijah's in the first arc, so that's who would train him.

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:33 PM
You put more than enough, 'description', in the Char. Sheet catagory!

@DL - Okay, gottcha!

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:35 PM
Okay, this is getting confusing. Maybe we should make a list:
Everyone please list their character for Arc One and Arc Two, in that order. Also, list the associations you want to have with other Players' Characters.

Jason Skywalker
10-10-2006, 06:38 PM
Arc One - Alex Skyrider
Arc Two- Nadej Rrok

Associations, hmm, i guess none, really. Unless i don't know what i'm talking about, which i probably don't know.

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:44 PM
Araphas, you realise what I'd have to do to make what you say possible?

Dark_Lady
10-10-2006, 06:45 PM
Arc One - Tul Abidijah
Arc Two - Erika Jark'ko
Tul Abidijah is going to train Sib.

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:51 PM
Nevermind....never thought of doing what Jason did....

Arc One - Sib Diya
Affiliation: Tul Abidijah will train Sib. No other affiliations, due to, I can't see the future, so I don't know which of the other characters I'll interact with!
Arc Two - Anu Thanatos
Affiliation: No one, due to, I can't see the future, so I don't know which of the other characters I'll interact with!

You happy with that?

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:52 PM
Yes. We have cohesion at last. The other two aren't online are they?

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:54 PM
Nope, they're not. But we could start anyways, I don't think Pottsie would mind; I dont know about steven though. Dont think he'd mind either though.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 06:56 PM
Very well. This thread will still be open for suggestions, but I'll go ahead and start Act One.

Master_Archon
10-10-2006, 06:59 PM

10-10-2006, 07:04 PM
The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy perhaps? Funny show. Anyways, can't wait for the topic to open up! Also, don't post much since i'm probably off to bed now, and i don't want to be excluded! Jk.

Araphas
10-10-2006, 07:11 PM
Its from Terry Pratchett's Discworld Novels, I forget which one. Mort, I think.

Anyway, I won't be here for too long anyway, but I'll be here long enough to start the thread.

10-10-2006, 11:10 PM
ill join this, but do you have to be a jedi?

Araphas
10-10-2006, 11:19 PM
Erm...sorry. The first two arcs include five characters each, all of which have been accepted, already.

If you're patient enough, the third arc will introduce non-jedi characters, but thats probably a while off.

I feel terribly embarrassed about this...

Diego Varen
10-11-2006, 01:50 AM
Arc I - Jorran Corral
Arc II - Oola

Also the pictures are sweet. Also Master_Archon, I don't mind someone starting an RP, while I'm offline, but it is hard to catch up. Also Araphas, I was thinking of doing something similar to this for KOTOR. Would that be alright? I'd credit you of course. Or I could do something that Dark_Lady did for Master_Archon. Write the Fic version for you if you want. Of course we should wait, until the RP progresses first. Also if there is an Arc III, what will it be called?

Araphas
10-11-2006, 03:49 AM
Wow, questions a-go-go!

Um...yeah, sure, I'd be quite flattered if you use some of my ideas. By all means, do a KotOR verson! (Though I'm intrigued as to what you mean by that...perhaps the purge set between the first and second games? Awesome. If you do, then I'm definately in.)

If you want to do a fanfiction, then your perfectly entitled to it.

As for the title of the third arc...well I don't know yet. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I only wanted to set up the framework, and let everyone else carry the idea to wherever it will go. I'd like to see an Ebon Hawk style roleplay where the survivors wander the Galaxy in search of other Purge survivors, in a trusty ol' space freighter. But anything is possible. ;)

Diego Varen
10-11-2006, 10:57 AM
Thanks for letting me know Araphas. For the KOTOR version, I was thinking of setting it shortly after Nihilus' attack on Katarr. The Fic version I might not do though. Thanks for answering my questions.

CountVerilucus
10-12-2006, 01:02 AM

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 05:31 PM
'Kay, I have a question. When the doomed characters die, do the die in the first and second arcs or in the third arc? Because if they died in the first and second arcs, then you could tell from who died in the first arc who would die in the second and it would take away any suspense. If they die in the third arc it would be much harder to tell who was going to die, plus we could get to care about the characters even more.

Araphas
10-12-2006, 10:23 PM
Hm...you know, I hadn't considered that. Actually, I was planning on the players to decide which of their characters would die from the beginning, and inform everyone else about it. (You can probably guess that of my two characters, which will survive)

I think it's up you you guys, then. One of the two must die, but as for when they die, s'up to you.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 10:50 PM
Yeah, I think I can guess who survives for you. My problem is I'm not sure which of my characters I want to survive yet.

Araphas
10-12-2006, 11:03 PM
Good. That makes it all the more poignant when one of them does.

Angst is a wonderful plot-device. And a good motivator for those affected.

And lets face it, nobody can call themselves a real Star Wars fan if they didn't feel the slightest twinge of sympathy at the very least, when all the Jedi died in Revenge of the Sith. Unless they are both a Star Wars fan, and heartless.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 11:09 PM
Oh, I stood up in the theater ('cause I was sitting on the edge anyway) and started pacing up and down next to the seats cussing Palpatine under my breath. Seriously.

Araphas
10-12-2006, 11:16 PM
Really? I almost cried. Especially when Aayla Secura was shot in the back and riddled with blaster bolts. That really got to me.

On the other hand, I cracked up laughing near the end when Vader breaks his constraints and lumbers across the floor, then screams, "Nooooooooooooo!". That ruined the whole ending scene for me, which was otherwise absolutely perfect. Probably the moody music.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 11:31 PM
Yeah, me too. I was laughing hysterically. Of course, Vader had to react somehow. I don't know what else they could have made him do. If he just ignored the fact that his wife died, that would have taken away all the emotional appeal, and if he staggered and started going "No... it can't be... no," that would just have ruined Vader's entire image. So they were basically stuck with that.

Araphas
10-12-2006, 11:48 PM
Wrong. Here's how it should have gone:

Vader wrenches from his constraints, grunting, unused to the weight of his new limbs. He stumbles to the centre of the room, then buckles in his suit, falling to his knees, as a strangled scream emerges from his iron lungs, horribly distorted by his facemask. The scream dies into a wretched moan as his fists pound into the ground and his head droops in hopeless anguish.

Thats how it should've gone, in my opinion.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 11:52 PM
Okay, that might have worked. I've got to go now, it's late and I have class tomorrow.

Araphas
10-12-2006, 11:59 PM

It's not sooner or later...The war is inevitable, so I think you should look into the future...

Araphas
10-14-2006, 01:33 AM
I meant that I wanted it to be sprung completely at random on us, catching the characters completely off guard, just as in the movie. Some of the players have barely posted just yet. I'm giving them time to settle in to their situation before I rip the floor out from under them, so to speak.

Jason Skywalker
10-14-2006, 05:17 AM
Sooner or later...not telling.

Hmm, Sooner or Later...Breaking Benjamin's So Cold would be a great theme for the First Story Arc and their Blow Me Away for the Second. But anyways, that is what creates the suspense on an RP.

Dark_Lady
10-14-2006, 03:36 PM
If you wait too long, everybody's just going to start posting how nervous they are. That's really going to ruin any suspense. So far I think every character has said something to the effect of "I have a bad feeling about this..." except Sib. I think we've got a decent idea of everyone's character so far. Now there's really no way to further develop said characters unless we put them in a different situation.

Dark_Lady

Ya know DL, Araphas did say this:

Pottsie hasn't posted much, and so hasn't Steven.

Master_Archon
10-25-2006, 08:04 AM
Yes, well, Araphas hasn't been on since the 18th of October, at least from what I see, you guys may see different days or times due to location. But it's still all in the same, he's not been on in awhile, and probably won't be on for a very long while...basically he up and quit, so to speak.

Though I could be wrong, he could just have some strange circumstance keeping him off for so long.

Dark_Lady
10-27-2006, 03:56 PM
Are we allowed to have someone else take over this thread until he returns? It's not fair for him to leave us in the lurch like this and there's no way to contact him because he never comes on the site.

Master_Archon
10-27-2006, 04:54 PM
Well, we could ask a mod if it's alright to vote in another TM; you know tell the mod the situation, then if he agrees, we could take a poll from all the RPers on the thread to see who wants who to be the new TM, or temporary TM, incase Araphas comes back on.

I have another idea, but it's kinda silly. (Like most of my crackpot theories! :D ) (I'll wait to see if my first idea works or not, then tell you my second idea!)

Dark_Lady
11-06-2006, 08:04 PM
Okay, I asked stingerhs, and he said it would be fine to continue wihout Araphas. So I guess we have to vote. I'll vote for Master_Archon, just because I love the way BBB is going and I'm sure he'll do just as good of a job with this. :D

And what's the crackpot theory?
