Star Wars
The First Jedi Purge

Discussion and Recruitment

Prologue

Four thousand years before the Battle of Yavin, the Jedi Civil War has ended. Revan and his companions have celebrated, but the galaxy would never have its peace. Revan had a vision of himself being tortured on a forgotten planet in the Unknown Regions. Something in this vision told him that the galaxy was in danger. From the Sith, however these Sith weren't the type Revan and his companions had fought in the Jedi Civil War. These Sith were the True Sith.

After Revan's departure from known space, many Jedi left the Jedi Order, disillusioned about Revan's actions during the war and when he left for the Unknown Regions. Even though the war had ended, many Jedi who hadn't left the Order, were being killed by a mysterious enemy. Soon the Jedi Order had been reduced to under one hundered members, causing the Order to disband and its remaining members being forced into hiding, causing them to scatter across the galaxy.

On the planet Katarr, the Jedi Master and historian Atris has summoned several Jedi Masters, who she had kept in contact with to meet on Katarr, to discuss about the Order's future. She herself didn't attend the meeting, since she wanted to use the three Jedi Masters, Vandar Tokare, Zhar Lestin and Dorak as bait, to lure the hidden threat out. Because of this, all three masters and the Miraluka on Katarr had been killed. All life on the planet had died, except for several surviours.

Now these surviours, Jedi Knights and mere Padawan learners from two planets in the galaxy, are willing to find this hidden threat and seek out the threat and end it once and for all.

Overview

This must be tenth RP thread here on LF, but let's get started shall we?

First, I'd like to credit Araphas for letting me use his idea for a Jedi Purge RP in the KOTOR timeline, which he himself thought was a good idea.

Star Wars: The First Jedi Purge takes place four thousand years before the Battle of Yavin and the Jedi Purge, nineteen years before that. Up to five players (Like the Jedi Purge RP Araphas made, not including myself) are welcome to join this RP. Anyone else who joins, won't be able to team up with the Jedi team seeking the threat. The first act (Or Arc as Araphas calls it), will start directly after the killing of the three Jedi Masters and after Nihilus has taken Visas Marr off the planet. The Jedi team will be trying to find this hidden threat in this part, which will last on Katarr for the rest of the act. Act II will be seeing the RP'er's other created Character (You need two characters for this RP, similar to Araphas' RP, both of whom you will use in different parts) on a mission on a planet seen on only in the Clone Wars game and the Battlefront game, who happen to know nothing about the hidden threat, but will find Sith assassins on the planet. And act three will see a killing of one the player's characters and the surviours will have a last stand to find the hidden threat.

The Act Parts are called:

Star Wars - The First Jedi Purge Act I: Attack on Katarr
Star Wars - The First Jedi Purge Act II: Battle on Rhen Var
Star Wars - The First Jedi Purge Act III: The Last Stand

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
Unless given permission, a player musn't control another player's character.

No Out-of-Character Chat
If you need to talk off-topic, do it in this thread. This is the reason why it is here.

Final Rule
Have fun and keep posting. I want this will be a memorable RP along with Araphas' Jedi Purge.

This next section was copied from Araphas' Jedi Purge.

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 on Katarr 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 Vandar, Vrook 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 Jedi Civil War, Zeldo has doubled his dedication to his training, seeing his chance to truly make a difference in the Galaxy.

Sorry to double post, but I was afraid my computer would freeze from posting too much. Also another rule for character names. They can be ancestors of characters from the Star Wars universe either during the Clone Wars or the Battle of Yavin, but I don't want everyone to be an ancestor of someone in the Star Wars Universe. Also, like Araphas' RP, I will spend about two pages, trying to get everyone to know each other.

A Wookiee Jedi found him and he sensed the Force within him. The Wookiee, Hanbacca took Jorran to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where he was trained by Master Vandar, before being taken as an apprentice under Hanbacca. Since then, Jorran has become a wise Jedi Knight and has also taken on a Zabrak apprentice, Irona Karr, who still needs guidance.

Nice profiles, and that's fine to me.

By the way, did you steal my idea to use a wookie Jedi? Pretty funny, but it's okay, besides it's not my original idea.

I wanted to join this, but I don't think I can handle three jobs simulatously well. Look, I got a CSI fiction to finish, and a RP (Yours!) to go. So, forgive me, I can't join you at this time. When I finish my fiction, I'll see what I can do.

Oh, by the way, you're really strict. Man, but this is very good idea to produce a realistic RP. I'll consider about this. Looks attract to me. Did you write this fic?

A small reminder: The guideline said there is "No more wookie jedi". How you have Hanbecca, a Wookie Jedi in the fic? I'm very sorry if this made you feel bad, but I'm just asking.

Well the reason is was because Araphas was really strict. Also, Hanbacca is a Wookiee Jedi, but he isn't in this Fic, so it won't matter. I think when Araphas made the rules, he just meant no Wookiee Jedi starring in the RP.

Name: Jason Skyrider
Rank: Jedi Knight
Age: 25
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Sentinel
Weapons: Lightsaber (Bronze with Yellow Core)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii-Cho - Basic
• Makashi - Moderate

Quote: "Well, nobody ever said being a Jedi was glamorous."
Homeworld: Corellia
Affiliations: Jedi Order, Republic
Relations: Frey'lya Plo'bre (Master).
Languages: Basic, Huttese, Droid.
History: Jason, like most of the other Padawans, was found at an early age, and taken onto the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine for training. There, when he met Bastila Shan, he was immediatly in love with her, but, because of the Jedi Code, and her apparent interest in Revan, he forgot it, but always loved her. He was taken by Bothan Master, Frey'lya Plo'bre, who was a great, yet old Jedi.

Name: Frey'lya Plo'bre
Rank: Jedi Knight
Age: 60
Species: Bothan
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Master
Weapons: Lightsaber (Bright Silver)
Equipment: Jedi Master Robes, Jedi Comlink.
Lightsaber Forms:

Quote: "Damn, that's not good!"
Homeworld: Unknown
Affiliations: Jedi Order, New Republic
Relations: Jason Skyrider (Apprentice), Roharan (Master, deceased)
Languages: Basic, Bothan (if there is), Droid.
History: Frey'lya, was a great Jedi from all times, and alongside Master Bindo, was part of the Exar Kun war. He slew many, but his most pitiful slaying was one of a droid whose blasters would overload before it's destroying and it's blaster bolts hit Frey'lya's Twi'lek Jedi Master, Roharan, right in the back, and pierced him. There, filled with rage, Frey'lya slew many more, before falling to his knees, and weeping and crying for his deceased Master, while his Force Spirit appeared to him and gave him some final lessons. There, he trained many apprentices, until he took on a quite powerful one in the Force, Jason Skyrider. On a part of his training as a Jedi at the Exar Kun War, he came across a really rare Krayt Dragon Pearl guarded by a Dark Jedi Krayt Dragon Rider. It was very difficult for him to get it, but after much concentration on the Force, he tricked the beast in to eat it's Master and then sleep, making it possible for Frey'lya to get the crystal. When he got back onto a workbench, he put it on his Lightsaber, and a clear bright Silver blade came out, and he was fiercely known and feared as "Silverfang".

Hey Jason, does my first post not say about having masters? I think it's in there, since this is similar to Araphas made that rule. It needs to be changed. Sorry to be strict, but this is a prequel to the Jedi Purge.

Jason Skywalker

Yes, i'll change it, but:

Rank:
Characters are exclusively restricted to the lower ranks in the Jedi Hierarchy, specifically Jedi Initiate and Jedi Padawan.

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.

Name: Davion Duamutef
Rank: Jedi Padawan
Age: 13
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Guardian
Weapons: Lightsaber (Blue)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii-Cho - Basic
• Makashi - Basic
Equipment: Jedi Padawan Robe.
Quote: "Um...master? Over here!"
Homeworld: Corulag
Affiliations: Jedi Order, Republic, Exchange
Relations: Alix Nist (Master).
Languages: Basic.
History: Davion was born to an upper class family with ties to the Exchange criminal syndicate. Fortunately, his Force sensitivity was discovered when he was barely an infant, and the Jedi took him away, sparing him a life of crime. In order to protect him from his family, Davion was spirited away to the enclave on Dantooine, far away from the Core Worlds.
Davion has since been apprenticed to Alix Nist, and works devotedly to impress his master. Still young and inexperienced, Davion lacks self-confidence, and relies heavily on his master.

Name: Alix Nist
Rank: Jedi Knight
Age: 29
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Jedi Guardian
Weapons: Lightsaber (Blue)
Lightsaber Forms:
• Shii-Cho - Basic
• Makashi - Mastered
• Soresu - Basic
• Ataru - Basic
• Shien - Advanced
Equipment: Jedi Knight Robe, Jedi Comlink.
Quote: "Psh. Big deal. I could deflect five blaster bolts in a row."
Homeworld: Deralia
Affiliations: Jedi Order, Republic
Relations: Zhar Lestin (Master).
Languages: Basic, Huttese, Ryl.
History: Alix was born into a simple agricultural family, and discovered at a young age to be force sensitive. He was taken to the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine, by the Jedi Watchman Vandar Tokare. There, he was trained in the ways of the Force, and taken as a padawan by the Twi'lek master Zhar.
Alix was among the Jedi who did not follow Revan to the Mandalorian Wars. Master Zhar's conservative nature had rubbed of on Alix, and he firmly believed that the Jedi Council knew best about such things. He later came to regret his inaction, as many Jedi who he counted as friends were slain in the final battle of Malachor V. He felt he could have done something to help them, or at least die bravely with them. Taking his leave of Zhar and Dantooine, Alix abandoned the Jedi Order, returnign to a simple life on Deralia.
Years later, Alix was made aware of the Jedi Civil War, and returned to action just in time to see a redeemed Revan return to win the war. Alix was knighted for the small part he played in this struggle. His faith in the Jedi Way restored, Alix returned to Dantooine and took an apprentice.
(If your wondering where the name comes from, there's a dark jedi by the name of Xecr Nist who serves as a Dark Side elite for Palpatine during the Dark Empire Saga.

I'm in! I shall start working on my char sheets immediately.

-edit-

First Character

Name: Kanitha Venn
Rank: Jedi Knight
Age: 26 Standard Years
Species: Human
Gender: Female
Class: Consular
Weapons: Lightsaber (Green)
Lightsaber Forms:
Shii-Cho - Basic
Makashi - Moderate
Soresu - Mastered
Equipment: Jedi Robes (dark brown), small toolkit for repairing electronics
Quote: "Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when they laugh."
Homeworld: Naboo
Affiliations: Galactic Republic, Jedi Order
Relations: Tnakka Srinn (former master)
Languages: Basic, Durese
History: Kanitha was discovered in an orphanage on Naboo by Jedi Master Tnakka Srinn, who took her as his Padawan when she reached eleven years of age. Over the years, she has focused her studies on the Force, and has adopted a defensive style of lightsaber combat, prefering to avoid conflict when possible. Tnakka died recently, during the war.


Second Character

Name: Jani Quasar
Rank: Jedi Knight
Age: 19 Standard Years
Species: Human/Zeltron hybrid
Gender: Female
Class: Guardian
Weapons: Lightsaber (Silver)
Lightsaber Forms:
Shii-Cho - Basic
Makashi - Mastered
Soresu - Moderate
Ataru - Mastered
Sokan - Moderate
Equipment: tight-fitting black suit, red Jedi robe, datapad
Quote: "Scientists from some undeveloped worlds teach that the brain exists merely to cool the blood and is not involved in the process of thinking. I now realize this is true, at least of certain persons."
Homeworld: Zeltros
Affiliations: Galactic Republic, Jedi Order
Relations: Kara Tenn (former master)
Languages: Basic, Huttese
History: Jani was brought to the Jedi by her Zeltron mother, who then disappeared. Years later, an unknown person gave Jani a package on the street, saying "Your mother always wanted you to have this." Jani opened it to find a dazzling crystal that sparkled even in the dark, as though energy was dancing inside. She constructed her first lightsaber with it, and still uses it today. She has always focused more on lightsaber combat than on Force powers (other than Speed, Jump, etc.), progressing at a speed that amazed even the Jedi Council, but her impetuous nature can cause problems at times.

Strangely enough, her genetic heritage did not mold her as could be expected. Instead of having bright red skin and hair, her skin is dark, and her hair and eyes are electric blue. Her strange appearance causes many people to look askance at her, even considering the many species of the galaxy. Being half Zeltron, she has inherited the ability to influence people's minds somewhat through pheremones, but she rarely uses this tactic, preferring to let people see her as they wish.

Good luck on it. Well, I won't be a "nice guy" on reviews. I will criticize this RP sharply. (Just kidding!)

Well, I am definitely looking forward to your reviews. I like constructive criticism.

I just took a quick glance at the RP, nicely done, I have to say. But generally, how come there is too many lightsaber duels/spars in the RP? You know, the problems can not be solved relying on lightsabers.

Initials should know a little about dark side. we can not forbid them to know the dark side. Of course, we don't want many Jedi join dark side, but at least let them know what dark side is...so they will have a better view of the Force. I always believe that--

Everyone deserves a chance of Redemption.--Revan

So I think sometimes Jedi initials should appear in the Jedi archieves, learning the ancient Jedi (Because the First Jedi Purge, the Great Jedi Purge occured around 19 BBY, right?) histories. They should know the present's conflict, and more than just a intense lightsaber duel.

Above is just my opinion. If anyone feels he or she is offended, let me know ASAP.

I agree, it's just a good way to get everyone together and learn other people's fighting styles. Somehow, it's more enticing than saying "She walked into the Jedi Archives and activated one of the readers. It held the story of an old legend..." Besides, if one person starts dueling, then the other people want in on the fun. Wouldn't you? I'm not offended though, this is a very good point.

Yeah, you were right, I would spar with anyone. But I really don't think this is a good idea because this may pull you to the dark side because you will feel pride after each winning. Just my point. Good to hear you're not offended.

Heh, maybe I'm better like Jedi consulars because I like to read histories and know a lot of thing in the past and present. I just like reading a lot.

Oh yeah, I'm real proud. I just tripped over a youngling lol. Just kidding. I love to read too, can read an entire Star Wars novel in two hours. That's if I'm going at a normal speed. It's a curse really. I run out of books so fast. And I love history too. I love reading almost anything.

Good for you. haha. This is very encouraging because you will need your lightsaber in a very intense duel, esp. with Emperor Devon.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 03:52 AM
Errr, ah, hmmm. Emperor Devon?

CSI
10-12-2006, 03:58 AM
What, don't tell me you don't know him...

10-12-2006, 04:08 AM
The guy from the forums or the character? (Although they do seem to be somewhat the same.)

CSI
10-12-2006, 04:12 AM
Right, somewhat same. He's real.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 04:16 AM
So why am I going to have to duel him?

CSI
10-12-2006, 04:21 AM
If, and only if he appears in this RP, you'll have to duel him...as he's the Evilest Sith Lord...:xP:

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 04:23 AM
I hope he appears. That would be sweet. He's awesome at this stuff.

CSI
10-12-2006, 04:26 AM
We'll see...We'll see...Maybe I will go and meditate and see if it happens...

BTW: Are you racing me for post number or post speed? Your replies comes in such a remarkable speed.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 04:28 AM
Neither lol. I'm just replying fast because I happen to be here, and this is interesting.

-edit-

OMG. I just typed Dark Side into Sloganizer and the first thing it came up with was "Dark Side. The whitest of the whitest."

CSI
10-12-2006, 04:30 AM
Yeah, we can post here as long as nobody says anything about this.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 04:41 AM
Well, we are discussing the RP. Sometimes. In an offhand manner. When we feel like it.

I don't know how Emperor Devon could get into the RP though, unless he plays a Jedi (yeah right). Maybe he could come in on arc three. I hope he does.

CSI

OK, I'm adding you to my buddy list, do you mind? True, ED would never miss a beat when he had a chance to show off.

BTW, nice sig there.

Dark_Lady
10-12-2006, 04:51 AM
Of course I don't mind. I'll add you to mine.

-edit-

Of course it's nice. Now that I look at it, it does have some similarity to yours though...

It's quite late right now...I think it's time to concentrate on my school essay...Not my CSI fic. Oh, about the CSI fic, you may renew your memory bank because I posted some new chapters and some info about future CSI fictions.

Okay, got my characters in, just need to add their Bio's, eventually.

Right, finally back! Ooh, stuff has been happening, hasn't it?

<stares suspiciously at everyone, hand hovering over his saber>

So, to answer some questions:

Initiates spend more time duelling and learning about diplomacy and the Galaxy at large, then they do studying history. That, plus the fact that information on the Dark Side and the Sith is exclusively forbidden from being shown to anyone lower then the rank of Master. Do you recall what happened to Exar Kun when he started poking his nose into things he ought not to? From infancy, Jedi are taught to resist the dark side, and conditioned to resist giving in to passions and curiosities, because...well you know why. The slightest push in the wrong direction, and there's no going back.

As for why Jedi duel a lot...well, its their way of getting to know each other, isn't it? Sparring is not about beating the opponent, its about learning from the experience of lightsaber combat. Its not like they get into lightsaber duels very often anyway. The Sith are supposedly (hah, as if!) extinct, so the majority of enemies the Jedi face use blasters or crude weapons. Thats why styles like Makashi, Shien and Juyo are so out of fashion. Most modern Jedi practise Soresu, Ataru or Niman, or stick with Shi-cho.

Also, I am very, very happy with how this is going along. These Jedi will soon be knee deep in blasterfire and distended corpses. The force will be a horrific death-scream to them, and friends and allies are going to drop dead all around them. So its important for characters to establish bonds with each other, because soon enough they will have to rely on each other to survive.

This First Jedi Purge conceptual seems to be shaping up nicely too. I'm so happy. Yay! I can't wait to see what comes after...

You guys dont have to wait for me to post my character's Bio's, I'll post them eventually, and when I do I'll jump in, whenever! So, go ahead, start.

Dark_Lady
10-18-2006, 07:08 PM
Yes, please start. All the characters are in.

Okay, I sent Pottsie a PM, and he said someone else can start the thread, and he might be dropping out.

So if anyone else is interested, there might be another spot opening soon.

Who wants to post the opening? I unfortunately never got to play KOTOR, so I don't have that much experience, but I'll do it if no one else wants to.

-edit-

Okay, Pottsie confirmed that he's retiring from the RP. That means we have room for one more person.

Jason Skywalker
10-27-2006, 05:59 PM
Hmm, i guess i could do the opening post. Just would need some time though, ougtha be perfect. :P

Dark_Lady
10-27-2006, 06:23 PM
You know, we could do it together. You write one and PM it to me and I can fix any errors, if there are any, and add a bunch of utterly unimportant but cool stuff.

Dark_Lady
10-30-2006, 08:45 PM
Or should I just do it myself?

Master_Archon
10-30-2006, 10:29 PM
No need for that D_L, I'll help you. :D

Dark_Lady
10-30-2006, 11:34 PM
Okay, many thanks. :D Do you want to write the first draft, since you probably know more about KOTOR than I do?

Jason Skywalker
10-31-2006, 06:22 AM
Sorry i haven't been, maybe we can all three do it, sending PM's back and forth.

Dark_Lady
10-31-2006, 08:52 AM
Cool. That might work.

Master_Archon
10-31-2006, 10:58 AM
Actually, I'd advice we don't PM between all three of ourselves, why? For one, it would get cluttered and confusing; especially when you're trying to privately respond to two people, let alone one. Second, I've got to save room in my Inbox, because I have messages from Rex to save, and respond to, (our secret plans D_L's been trying to uncover, yet she never will until all is revealed, muahahaha!) along with other random messages.

Dark_Lady
10-31-2006, 01:37 PM
Fine. You PM to me, I change/add stuff, I PM to Jason, he changes/adds stuff, he PMs to you, you do the final edit, and post it. Or something of that nature. We can go in any order.
