Which species do you think you will chose? Personally I think I'd go for Bothan, or Trandoshan.

Rodian or Twi'lek.

Oh yeah, I forgot Rodian. Being Rodian would definately be cool.

I think I'll stick to the rather boring and mundane human character (I'm the kind of person whose favorite ice cream is vanilla). Rodian would be pretty intersting though. I'm sure I'll have a few of different species. I definitely will have to have one Mon Calamari.. although I'm not so sure how suave I can be with fish eyes. /forums/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Actually, I think they all look interesting except Human, Zabrak, and Twi'lek, they're too similar to me.

Male human for me.

I'd have a hard time roleplaying any other race.

Is that from experience Tracer, or you think you don't have enough skill for it?

I think you'd be surprised how much fun it can be to do something you've never done before. I'm doing a lot of research into the Star Wars genre to get myself up to speed on all of the races and relationships in the Star Wars Universe. I'm hoping to create something that will give people direction and ideas on how they can role play in the Star Wars Universe. Not that I think I have the definitive answer on how it should be done, but I don't want the people who have never role played before to feel uncomfortable about trying it for the first time.

Unfortunately A great deal of role players come accross as condescending to anyone who isn't as familiar with role playing as they are. I find that a sad commentary, and I'm hoping I can dispel some that stigma.

Well, sort of. I've never played a multi-player RPG, but in single player that's what I tend towards.

The first time playing a MMORPG can be a little intimidating. I spent the first hours just trying to figure out how to navigate around the town I started in. It wasn't much fun, but I was determined and eventually found a few people that helped me out and made the whole experience a lot of fun.

It helps to have people around that can assist you in the beginning. Player Associations will be a great way to get involved and not feel so overwhelmed. I'd suggest eventually finding one that you like and signing up. I can guarantee that there will be hundreds to choose from even before the game goes gold.

Being a part of sites like this one is a great idea as well. SWO is going to be a great resource for SWG, and I'm sure they'll have a lot of info to help get people started.

Probably a wookiee.

Hey Juz, are you going to be dressed like the one in the female species lineup? /forums/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

This is why I'll be following MikeC around for awhile. /forums/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif Plus, he might be a Wookie and I might need a Wookie to help out until I feel comfortable.

I'm going to be a male human.

Well, I'm new to online RPGs too. But if anybody gives us trouble I'll just rip their arms out of their sockets. /forums/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

I am going to be Zabrak. My other posts say why. I think that Dark Jedi Masters are more fearsome as Zabrak.

i want to be either a Zabrak or a Human.

Human, Rodian, Mon Cal, or Zabrak.... Lets just say I'm undecided... I think it will fall upon the customization options and the abilities of each species.

IIRC, in the novel, Darth Maul was a human with implants in his skull and tatoos all over his body.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

This is from the databanks at www.starwars.com (http://www.starwars.com)

No one is quite sure how Darth Sidious came across his young and deadly apprentice. He was raised from an early age to be a weapon, tempered by harsh, abusive training to become an incredible warrior. Once a Zabrak from Iridonia, Maul abandoned all trace of his former identity when he took on his Sith name. So complete was his devotion that he even endured the agony of having intricate Sith tattoos applied to his entire body.

HAHA, I third that ....

Although a Zabrak might be cool too (as you can see I am a little SW racist, so it has to be as human as possible ...)

Dunno, but I can't imagine being for example a Mon Cal (fish-like eyes on sides of head ??!!).......

Twi'leek and Zabrak are cool, very humanoid ...

Wraith 8
01-14-2002, 02:50 PM
well.. euh... a Jedi Bothan.... or a Bounty Hunter Bothan hmmmm
well a bounty hunter looks very very cool... but a Jedi is gonna take much of work and training... i would go with bounty hunter!!

As I understood it you can't simply be a Jedi from creation on, but get chosen ...

Wraith 8
01-14-2002, 05:00 PM
by who'm will you be chosen then???

1st choice human

2nd choice wookie, be one of the strongest PCs in the game :)

Sounds Risky
01-14-2002, 10:55 PM
Probably be a Zabrak. Anyon know how customizable the tattoos are?

Com Raven
01-15-2002, 11:25 AM
Hmm, I don't know for sure, but I think there are lots of custom options (even as far as the placement of horns on the head ...)

And about the jedi I am not sure, better look it up on the official page ..
