STAR WARS KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC: ECHEC ET MAT (CHECK AND MATE)
At last! The heart and main cell of the anti-Force-user cult called the Found has been defeated. SEEKER ADELINE has come face-to-face with her Creator, and the rest of her followers have fled, perhaps to other planets besides Coruscant, in disarray. The Jedi Order, now led by Cathar Knight JUHANI and her new apprentice PERDANTE DAREVA, is celebrating its most important victory since DARTH TRAYA was vanquished.
Yet, even though this endgame of the users of the Force versus their foes has earned a winning position for the Old Republic and the Jedi, the ultimate leader of the Found, and the secret behind the Truth he preaches, have not been located. That is the urgent assignment upon which the Republic sends the Jedi and their stalwart allies who do not use the Force. Little do they know that this is a suicide mission, and some WILL sacrifice their lives to achieve 'check and mate' for the greatest Force-user destroyer since TRAYA...

Too many zeros
Silvery smooth metal as a base layer, with enigmatic symbols carved in and no familiar facial features such as a mouth, nose, or ears. Neck and face are mostly covered by a wrapping of brown cloth, with the exception of what look to be eyes engraved in the metal and a set of goggles to cover said eyes (http://www.amazing1.com/Graphics/NVM14-13.jpg) (No night vision installed). He also wears a hat (http://www.hatcountry.com/images/SS-Alton-Chocolate.jpg).
This outfit, minus the face. (http://www.prophecy.demon.co.uk/StarTrek/MalcolmReynolds13.jpg) He stands at about 2 meters with a medium build and weighs in at about 450 kilos.
Clumsy and knowledgeable, with a sense of compassion that is tempered by his pragmatism. He is quick in decision-making and is very blunt and direct to the point, rarely sparing people's feelings except in situations in which it would be beneficial for him to do so. He not afraid to run in the face of impossible odds, and will often be the first into an impossible foray if not other viable options exist. He loves contradictions and occasional discussions about morality, physics, and his species.
Stronger than the average human and about as fast as one though he has occasional fits of imbalance given that his species developed in a zero-g environment and his weight, which also makes him less than adept at hand to hand with the exception that the weight behind his punches could crush a man's skull. His natural armor is tough enough to resist normal weapons fire and being struck by a object going 160 kilometers per hour, but not tough enough to avoid damage from a high-powered rifle or pole flying at him at 340 meters per second (learned the hard way). It is highly resistant to extreme temperatures to the point that Meta almost considers it laughable when other species attempt to use energy weapons against him, though he's still afraid of being in a spaceship when its core overloads or nearly being shot into a star. Meta's species developed with the ability to see beyond the normal ranges of light to perceive all electromagnetic magnetic frequencies from microwaves to x-rays, though this in itself can be a liability when he has to focus on something in particular. Meta wears a pair of goggles to block his peripheral vision and help him focus more effectively. Meta's species is also naturally deaf given that sound does not travel through space, so instead he has to rely on the actual vibrations of the sound waves to reach him and then he has to interpret those sounds, a process which can either be instantaneous or take a few seconds given what he is wearing and his mood.
Meta's natural means of communications typically involves a broadcast of radio waves that another Versewalker would then receive and be capable of interpreting, which would be equivalent to verbal speech among human beings. In the event where this would not be viable, such as in a one-on-one conversation, two Versewalkers could touch and exchange information electrically. Neither of these methods works in communication with human beings, unless they have a proper modulation device or desire to be electrocuted to death, so Meta has a voice modulation device attached to his neck that can mimic a wide rang of voices and noises. In the event that the device suffers damage he knows sign language, Morse code, and other forms of non-verbal communication. In terms of combat, Meta will often employ a wide variety of weaponry based primarily on whatever he can get his hands on. Whatever he does get his hands on, he extensively modifies to a point beyond any recognition with an exponentially more deadly weapon as a result. Generally all of his modifications will have the ultimate goal of making a weapon plasma-based or magnetically-accelerated, though that is not a common achievement given the conditions he has to work in at most times. Currently, he carries a Plasma Repeater (http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100404184803/halo/images/f/f4/Plasma_Repeater_Cropped.png), a nifty weapon he picked up from the last universe he was in.
Means of Travel
A lot of running and jumping with the occasional walk on the beach and a free fall from orbit.
Meta is a Versewalker, a species which developed the ability to travel between universes. They initially evolved as a metallic organism in a planetary system with seven stars that all orbited a single asteroid field. They evolved from this collection of rocks until they had an empire spanning multiple galaxies and, eventually, universes. The empire then collapsed as an experiment to replicate the Big Bang went wrong and destroyed every universe it was conducted in, which was every universe controlled by the Verserwalker empire. The surviving Versewalkers, who had been in other realities on expeditions or diplomatic missions, were hunted down by a coalition of races formerly under the control of the empire. They were not even aware of what had occurred until they were hunted to the point of extinction. Meta himself was the last to be captured and be put on trial for the crimes of his people, though instead of executing him like all of the rest, the coalition decided to imprison him as an example for all eternity. He escaped and since then they have never been able to track him down, lacking the lifetime to hunt down a being that can hunker down and simply wait for them to die. Currently Meta wanders universes, sometimes getting into situations. Sometimes they turn out good, and sometimes they end with all life in the galaxy being wiped out. Sometimes.

I'll be back as Ibis. :)

Want an awesome image link for Juhani?
Thanks for joining! :)
No problem! This RP's great! :D
06-24-2010, 12:49 PM
Well, I'll join up with the same character, even though I never got to use him n the previous RP, I'll at least try to do something with him in this one.
Name: Tu'un Ny'eh Yy
Species: Mal-Tu'un'i (His 'species' has a lot of subsects, very confusing, his actual species in a general term would be: Mal.)
Occupation: Republic Field Commander
Attracted To: Females, doesn't matter which species, but let's face it, who's going to end up liking this guy?
Talent: Kenokinesis (Has the ability to stop an extremely small fraction of time, and mentally dissect imformation gathered from that moment in time. Can be used in a slightly different way for combat. This is his species' subsect specfic ability, rarely seen in outsiders.); Telepathy (His entire species has this).
Image: Mal (http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs45/f/2009/092/9/1/Alien_by_Robotpencil.jpg)
Notes: These may be put in later, or not, depends on if I want to explain stuff about him or not.
Quotes: 'Wisdom is greater than any rank that can be achieved, earned, or given. Use it with care.'

((OK, I noticed she answered me in her profile page XD I'll make the character sheet in a bit))
I'll join if I can have Visas Marr :D
06-24-2010, 11:19 PM
Shana and MA's joining?! YAY!! *Group hug* :D
06-24-2010, 11:42 PM
I'm sorry my picture of Perdante is so big, guys.
WARNING! WARNING! THREADMASTER PRECAUTION ALERT!
Since there are going to be a LOT of characters in this RP, I'm going to make another threat besides Khristof, the main villain of the plot and the "Prophet of the Truth". The other threat is going to be a nasty female politician who is a "Dominionist", meaning that she wants the whole galaxy to follow Khristof and his teachings. She's running for the Galactic Senate--and either killing or imprisoning anyone who gets in her way.
So, half of the characters are going to be on the MILLENNIAL, the ship that goes to find Khristof beyond the Outer Rim, and the other half is going to try and deal with the politician, who's harming more than just her rivals. She's also poisoning the populace slowly with ostanovium in the water so they won't be able to feel the Force.
If you still want to be in the RP, type "CHECKMATE" and which half you want to be in. :)
EDIT: Perdante is CHECKMATE on the MILLENNIAL.
06-24-2010, 11:53 PM
NAME: Visas Marr
AGE: Unknown (mostly because no one knows XD)
RANK: Jedi Knight
FORCE TALENT: Force Sight (able to see through the force because of her lack of eyesight)
Appearence: You all know her and she's in our forum banner XD

06-25-2010, 12:49 AM
Name: Dominic Travesty (http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a240/BastilaRevanforever/Random%20Stuff/Andrew%20Cooper/ac2jx7.jpg)
Occupation: The Found Special Forces
Force Talent: Force Absorption and Negation; thanks to the special technique discovered and taught by the Found's leaders, Dominic has the ability to absorb any Force energy summoned by his Jedi and Sith adversaries, thanks to a special mineral he has embedded in his tattoo.
The palm of his right gauntlet (http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a240/BastilaRevanforever/?action=view¤t=Turin_by_lastscionz.jpg) can detach and drop out, revealing the eye-shaped tattoo on his palm that marks him as a member of the Found, as well as shelters the mineral that allows him to dampen Force attacks.
Dominic is STALEMATE, chilling on his own ship, searching independently for Khristoff.
Name: Captain Fara Starr (http://www.rihannaphotos.org/displayimage.php?pid=45673&fullsize=1)
Age: 39 years old
Occupation: Captain of the Republic frigate Millenial
Force Talent: N/A
Fara's been part of the Republic fleet since she went to the Academy at age nineteen. Having fought during the Jedi Civil War, she's faced her fair share of Sith and fought alongside many a Jedi. During one of her battles, she came in close contact with a Sith's saber, leaving a long gash across her right eye. That eye was later replaced by a Republic field med team, but there was nothing that could be done to heal the scar that resulted. She has been known to wear a lot of make up, against fleet requirements, in order to hide it from general observance...but that only masks the ugly mark for a quick glance. Looking at her for more than thirty seconds will reveal it immediately, and often causes quite a start.
Fara is CHECKMATE on the MILLENIAL
06-25-2010, 01:21 AM
Darn! A Found on the MILLENIAL! Can't wait to deal with them and the Sith! >:=D
06-25-2010, 10:33 AM
I think I'm seeing a pattern here...
CHECKMATE on POLITICIAN for Meta

CHECKMATE ON THE MILLENIAL FOR Ibis

...where he immediately tries to kill Perdante?
06-25-2010, 12:35 PM
CHECKMATE on POLITICIAN for Tu'un (since we've got a Republic Officer for the primary villain, Tu'un would be best suited - especially since he's a Field Officer - for the Secondary villain. :) )
06-26-2010, 02:21 AM
Sorry about my huge picture guys.
06-26-2010, 09:43 AM
How about this image for your character, Skywalker:

Aww, Rex! Thank you! Just what I need. :D
I'll edit my pic.

Micheal J. Caboose
Team-killing, talking to vehicles, and pressing random buttons.
Caboose has arrived in this universe by accidentally following Meta from his own.
MATECHECK on MILLENNIAL for CABOOSE
06-26-2010, 07:16 PM
Rexraptor, I humbly request--er, Perdante does--that one of your characters join her on the Millennial. :)
06-26-2010, 07:21 PM
Very well. Caboose will join Perdante on the Millennial.
06-27-2010, 03:21 AM
Didn't get to play with her much before, so I'm bringing her back. :D
Name: Arai Elan
Occupation: Exiled Jedi Shadow, Mercenary for Hire (to a good cause)
Attracted To: “Attracted?” she scoffs. “Who has the time?”
Force Talent: Shatterpoint
Image: Arai Elan
Additional Notes: Arai was exiled for being too impulsive and being too willing to walk the narrow line, to make slight use of Dark Side powers when such use brought her the desired result. Given her ability to see shatterpoints, she can easily tell when such power use would bring the desired result.
As an exile, Arai now believes she has been released from the rules and regulations of the Jedi and is freer to accomplish her mission: the destruction of the Dark Side. However, she also recognizes that the regular use of this power is poisoning her ability to return to the Light. To combat this, she spends four hours in meditation daily. So far, it's working, but she fears that it may soon no longer be enough. Eventually, she may need another person to call her on her actions, to snap her out of it.
Arai is also STALEMATE at present, though in my first post, she'll be rid of the Rusty Bucket. I imagine she may get hooked up with Dominic in the near future... and hopefully make his loyalty to the Found waver more than a little ;)
06-27-2010, 05:58 PM
Pfft. She'll have to be very persuasive xP
06-27-2010, 07:08 PM
Umm, hello? Shatterpoint? She can be VERY persuasive if she wants to be :p
06-27-2010, 07:38 PM
*Looks at Writer's character Arai jealously* Uh-huh. Can she? So can Melany! lol :D
Wait, she likes Dominic too? Release the Kraken! :lol:
06-27-2010, 08:28 PM
Who said anything about *liking* Dominic? :rolleyes: Dom an' Arai are old friends; back when Dom was a Jedi, they trained together, played together, pranked Jedi Masters together... *clears throat* anyway...
So put your Kraken away. Even if you *did* send it, Arai would find a shatterpoint somewhere in its makeup which, once properly exploited, would turn the beast back on you. So why don't we leave the choosing to Dominic. Since Melany's PLAYER seems so intent on claiming him whereas Arai's "attracted to" suggests a bit more of a challenge, I might dare to speculate that Arai's chances are slightly higher :p
And the fact that they're old friends sure helps too :D
06-27-2010, 09:26 PM
Whoa whoa whoa! When did Dominic become the Bachelor??? XD
06-27-2010, 10:31 PM
Curses, Writer's charrie is good! *looks at Kraken* Sorry, big guy.
*Kraken makes a sad tone, head down and swimming away* :lol:
Naw, but we're cool, Writer. ;)
06-28-2010, 02:21 AM
Or did Arai use shatterpoint on you? o___O :D
@FFWM: *points to SR, accusingly* She started it!
06-28-2010, 08:18 PM
Shatterpoint!? NOOO! :p
*Runs away when Writer points to me* :D
06-28-2010, 08:27 PM
Quick question: How did the hallway and the office merge into one room?
06-28-2010, 08:42 PM
06-28-2010, 08:56 PM
THREADMASTER'S ALERT: MILLENNIUM MOLE WANTED!
The "Millennium Mole" is an undercover Sith, a la Kreia or Senator Palpatine, who wants to use the crew (especially Perdante) to execute revenge upon Khristoff--an old comrade of his/hers. To put it bluntly, if Khristoff is the (false) Messiah of this roleplay, then the Millennium Mole is Satan/the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Any volunteers? (NOTE: MM isn't a blatantly obvious Sith.)
06-28-2010, 09:14 PM
ME!!! I'll do it! :D
06-28-2010, 10:37 PM
I was planning on bringing in a few Republic soldier characters as bridge personel to compliment Fara...maybe we could work something out, Skye.
06-28-2010, 10:48 PM
FFWM, should we perhaps have Damien and Arai run into one another again coming up shortly? As in, writing up posts as them tonight? ;)
EDIT: Considering she's signed off, I guess that's a no. But it should happen soonish, methinks :)
06-28-2010, 11:15 PM
SkywalkerRules: Are you prepared to have Melany fully become like Senator Palpatine/Lord Sidious? I need a real manipulator, whom Perdante won't be able to see through easily.
NOTE: The Millennium Mole is meant to be IRREDEEMABLE, just as Lord Sidious was.
06-28-2010, 11:25 PM
I don't think Melany needs to be the mole...the mole needs to be on the ship to start with, to be ingrained in the crew so as to not draw attention and yet still be able to get the inside info. It'll ave to be a new character that only Fara would be related to, at this point the RP.
And yes, Writer, I think we should get them in here as soon as possible. So if you're still on...
06-28-2010, 11:38 PM
Whoa! You're back! I'm here! Do you still have AIM, yah?
06-28-2010, 11:47 PM
Indeed I do ^.^ Same address as always.
06-28-2010, 11:49 PM
And here's hoping I typed it in right... PM it to me? Just to be safe? *Writer knows he's a bit weird about things like this... :p *
06-29-2010, 12:40 AM
FF, would you be willing to be the MM as well? Pleeeeeease? :)
06-29-2010, 12:46 AM
*shrug* That all depends on Skye =P I'll be bringing in two Republic soldiers regardless, so if one of them is the MM, it's fine. If not...no big deal!
06-29-2010, 12:48 AM
*begs* Skye, if you let FFWM12 be the Millennium Mole, I'll let you give Perdante a goth makeover on the ship!!!
06-29-2010, 10:37 AM
*begs* Skye, if you let FFWM12 be the Millennium Mole, I'll let you give Perdante a goth makeover on the ship!!!
Oh, all right! I was just saying she could do it because Melany has mental issues, due to her past and thinking no one loves her. So... it's a mixer of paranoia and depression.
But yeah, go right ahead, FFWM12. I'm sure you'll do a better job anyway. :D
