OK people, after a thread kvan started (Is the darkside book worth getting? (http://forums.galacticbattles.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=392)) We are going to try to start playing some games on these boards.

I have talked to chris (Chris i hope i am not talking out of turn) and he said that we may get a board to play in.

So the questions are


Who wants to play

Would you like to be a gm or pc

What era would you like to play in.


I will be a gm but i am not on all the time and don't see why we can't have more then one gm. (Please tell me if i am wrong) This way we could try to play different era's

Has you can see from the thread Kvan started i don't have any era sorce books, so i will buy the one (or two) that are most wanted.

So any one who would like to play please speak up now.

I'll play... I wanna play in the NJO period... I wouldn't mind being a Sith ;)

Kvan
08-20-2001, 06:01 PM
Well I'll be playing :D
I haven't decided on my class yet, but I'm gonna be an alien. Maybe a rodian.
BTW To join this RPG you don't have to know how to play! We will tell you what you need to know. Oh, and for thoughs of you who don't know what a role-playing game is; you basically create a character with the help of wraith 5, and "play" as him.

Well, if someone wants to explain it to me i would do it. Let's do it in the Rebellion era.

Really Tie? Cool! What would you want to be. And you do realize that the rebellion era has few Jedi...
The classes are as follows;
Fringer
Noble
Scoundrel
Scout
Soldier
Force Adept
Jedi Counsular
Jedi Guardian

Tie Guy
08-20-2001, 06:32 PM
Hmm, scout sounds good for me, care to explain how it works?

Mitth'raw'nuruodo
08-20-2001, 07:02 PM
Yay! Great idea! I want to play definately!!! I want to be a Chiss Jedi! Whatever realm that's' in is fine with me. :D

Scouts are pretty stealthy and quick, but not super strong if I remember correctly. I have the SWRPG book so if we need something like that I have one. :D

Kvan
08-20-2001, 07:07 PM
Do you have the D20 or D6 version? I think we are going to be playing with the D20.

Wraith 5
08-20-2001, 09:37 PM
I (as the game master) am going to make my first desision and say that we will be using the d20 rules

Mitth'raw'nuruodo
08-20-2001, 10:34 PM
I don't know what the difference is (as I said I'm not the gamemaster when I play).

Kvan

Well the difference is that with the old rules (WEG) you use a D6 or 6 sided dice. They new rules by WotC uses a D20 or 20 sided dice. Yeah your right though your not going to notice any difference when you play since the GM has to worry about the rules, players don't! ;)

Wraith 5
08-20-2001, 10:45 PM
And Thrawn that is me (the GM)

Kvan
08-20-2001, 10:48 PM
Wraith, I'm gonna(or you can) try and find a Chiss species template, the one in the book doesn't have anything :(

Wraith 5
08-20-2001, 10:52 PM
Kvan so are you looking for the template or do you want we to look, or make one???

Kvan
08-20-2001, 10:55 PM

I'm going to look around, but if I can't find one you might have to make one (which isn't hard).
So did you pick up the core rule book yet? :)

Wraith 5
08-20-2001, 11:01 PM
Nope i couldn't stop tonight, i had to get something for my mom and had to bring it home right away, so i couldn't stop today, i am going to try to do it tommorow

darthfergie
08-20-2001, 11:10 PM
I'll play!!!
How are you going to set this up though?
One person posts his move and then you wait for the next person to post theirs? What if a person is gone for a day because they are grounded or have to go to their grandparent's house or go to Dutchstock? What will you do?

I'd like to play in EU...period.(if it's possible) Not NJO. We should leave that out of it. We don't know much on the Vong. The enemies would be scarce besides them. Lots more Jedis, but your units arn't worth anything once faceing the Vong. MOst people (at least me) would go to the Vong and whip butt with their warriors who are the near equivelant of a Jedi.

Kvan
08-20-2001, 11:17 PM
So fergie, would you prefer to play in the Old Republic (around epi.1) or Rebellion era?
Also what Species and class(look at one of my other posts for the lists of classes) do you want to be?

darthfergie

What are the advantages of the different classes in the game???
Is there a limit to the amount of people in each class?

Kvan
08-20-2001, 11:34 PM
Ok, I'll try and explain the classes as best as I can;
Fringer: the best way to describe this one is, you know everything but are good at nothing.

Noble: Good at bargaining and Negotiations.

Scoundrel: Uses words and stealth

Scout: Uses Stealth and is good at tracking and finding stuff

Soldier:Great combat skills, and is strong.

Force Adept: A force user who isn't a Jedi. Like the Witches of Dathomir.

Jedi Consular: A jedi that relys on diplomacy more then attacking(Yoda is this)

Jedi Guardian: A Jedi that relys more on more Physical means to get things done. (Obi-wan and Maul are these)

Oh, and fergie you can be whatever class you want (as far as I know). I don't think you can be a Sith though.
BTW These classes don't represent who you are. You can be a Rodian Entertainer and have a Noble class...does that make sense?

darthfergie
08-20-2001, 11:52 PM
Force Adapt for me then.:D

I'd be...hmmm...A DARK TROOPER!!! :dtrooper:

Kvan

For me anyway...I don't know about you:p

So how would you go about "starting small":confused: (don't mind me I just play the card game:D )

Kvan
08-21-2001, 12:10 AM
Hmmm, Well what do you want to be? Did you want to be a smuggler? or do you go for the more military approach, like a Imp. officer (although I don't kn0ow what era we are playing in yet :( )

darthfergie
08-21-2001, 12:14 AM
why don't you make a poll on it???

as for who I want to be...Imp if possible...(DARK TROOPER:dtrooper: ) (or I might even go for Jedi Master but I doubt it...It probably takes alot of work to get up to Jedi Master)

Kvan
08-21-2001, 12:26 AM
Thats what we are using this for, your supposed to say your Species, Class and era that you'd want to play in.
BTW We are probably starting at level 1 so we aren't going to be very powerful, yet.

darthfergie
08-21-2001, 12:30 AM
So how would it work...the game I mean...what is your objective???

Kvan
08-21-2001, 12:35 AM
Wraith is coming up with a senario to play. :)

darthfergie
08-21-2001, 12:37 AM
OHHHHH:)

I forgot...Dungens and Dragons..."I am the game master and you are my puppets";)

Kvan
08-21-2001, 12:56 AM
Yes. :)
BTW I forgot there are prestige classes. They are what you can become once you reach a certain requirement.
They are as follows;
Bounty Hunter
Crimelord
Elite Trooper
StarFighter Ace
Officer
There are others but you guys don't have to worry about presige classes yet :)

Boba Rhett
08-21-2001, 01:40 AM
I want to be an Insane Jedi like Joruus. Type: Gaurdian, Species: Human, Era: Old Rep, I guess...

Gamma732
08-21-2001, 01:47 AM
I'd like to be a Gand mercinary. I'll go force adept and soldier...multiclassing is ok, I'm told. As for the era, as long as its not NJO(I don't want to deal with all that Vong stuff....yet ;) ) I'll be happy.

Young David
08-21-2001, 07:03 AM
Okay ... I'll try this one too ... about what I'm gonna be? I'll wait for that until most of you decided how to start. I will fill in the gaps (or just one gap). But only if that one is cool.

I don't really care what period were playing in. Either Old Republic, Galactic Civil War or New Republic time period ... just no NJO ... Too less known about the Vong.

Kvan, Wraith, Inform me of what you need for a player ... wich no-one takes.

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 09:05 AM
Well after looking at the responses i think we are going to play the old republic era...

It looks like some people ether want to play jedi or get to jedi streath later, or they just don't want to get into NJO, so i think it will be best to start in the Old Republic.

Here are some pc limits, no imperals or rebels (OK i know that is a given). Unless we get more people that want to be evil, i am going to say now sith, and depending on what i learn about bounty hunts, possably none of them. I don't know about the bounty Hunters... The movies and most of the books always make them seem evil, if we can have good bounty hunts then i have no problem with them.

Young David
08-21-2001, 10:02 AM
How bout cops? Like CorSec ... Are they available? Those are basicly the good version of Bounty hunters. Their prey is a criminal, and their bounty is justice.

Kvan

Wriath, Bounty Hunter is a Prestige Class which means they first have to gain some lvls. before they are able to become one. BTW There are bounty hunters that are "good", they are the ones that don't make the money because they are too "kind". :D
Oh, um, thrawn, is there ANY other species you'd like to be besides the Chiss? :)

I'm sure you can be a cop, but I don't know, does the CSA exist in the O. Republic?

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 10:58 AM
Well i know that corsec was around at the end of the old republic, and by the sounds of the rs book, it as been around for a long time, yd i don't see a problem in beign a cop, weather or not it is with corsec, i will tell you tonight, or tommorrow morning. But i think corsec will be there....

I am stopping tonight to pick up a core book, and the old republic era book, if any one really doesn't want to play old republic, please speak up now before i buy the old republic book.

Kvan

Wriath is the Old Republic Sourcebook out?
Also Gamma said he wants to be a Gand, I found the "template" for it (since it's not in the book).

Well I was talking about Species templates above. All it is are a set a number that add or subtract numbers from your attributes. It also can give you like Night-vision or being able to breathe underwater.
Attributes are represents what your character is (ie is he strong? or wise? or etc.)
Here are the Attributes;
Strength
Dexterity
Constitution
Intelligence
Wisdom
Charisma

So does this mean I don't need to rack my brain to remember all that stuff about Gands that I've read? Or does that mean your making one and still need info?

Kvan
08-21-2001, 11:39 AM
Gamma I found the Gand, so you don't need to rack your brain anymore :)
Rommel, I can pretty much get any one you want. But remember we are doing Old Republic so no Ewoks.

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 11:55 AM
Kvan i think the old republic sorce book is out, i can't check right now i am on my way back out the door to do more work, but i will look at lunch, but i thought wizards said that it was out.

If not then i get to make it all up ;)

Oh and god you may have missed it but i said that there will be now criminal (evil) pc, but if you want to be some one like han (a sumguler) that is fine with me, just no evil pc's

Ok, what it is, you build a character and GM (or person in charge) makes a senario for you to play in. You type out what you are doing, And your attributes play an important part in if you acomplished in what you set out to do.
Unfortunatly the Timeperiod in which we are going to be playing in, Old Republic (around the time of Epi.1, maybe even during the clone wars), the Chiss are not known to the galaxy so would you like to be a different species? :)

God
08-21-2001, 12:00 PM
kvan hold on a sec

i'll be a nubian smuggler:cool:

can i advace my charactor?

how does the game play? (on a board?)

who is the gm

God
08-21-2001, 12:04 PM
wraith, whats a template?

are you the gm

Kvan

The game doesn't play on a board that you'll be able to see. Everything will be described to you in great detail (it's real fun!) and you can do just about anything you can think of while your playing! :) You do get Level but I think everyone is startig at level 1
BTW Whats a Nubian look like?:confused: I have no idea what they are except for the ship..

God
08-21-2001, 12:15 PM
i'll be back

Kvan
08-21-2001, 12:28 PM
Wriath, who are you going to allow Starships? Only pilots? Everyone?

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 12:53 PM
first...

god i am the game master or gm.

And after talking to kvan i decided that you can have an evil pc, but not sith. In the old republic there are only 2 sith, and they don't play well with others.

Also god have you ever played any of the old text based game??? you know the one where the computer tells you what room you are in and then tells you what way you can go??? That is what an rpg is like, but anything you can think of your pc doing can be done because if it is something i didn't expect i can make up something on the spot.

I am sorry to any one who wants to play chriss but almost everyone said that they didn't want to play in the NJO era.

So again, evil pc's are in, but no sith

(;) actually ... I know that you meant chiss)

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 01:43 PM
yd thanks for picking that up!!!

yes i ment chiss

oh and Kvan for now i am thinking just poilt for now, possably ships when we get more into the game

Kvan
08-21-2001, 01:55 PM
Ok, so here is a run down of who we have playing what;

Gamma732- A Gand Soldier that might multi-class to force adept

Rommel- A Trandoshan Soldier that is a Merc.

Thrawn12786- Chiss wasn't known yet during the ORep. so could you pick someone else? :)

Darthfergie- ???

Tie Guy- A Kubaz scout

Boba Rhett- A Human Jedi Guardian that is insane.

god- A Nubian Smuggler. god do you know what class you want to be? I listed the classes and what they are above somewhere. :)

Lord JayVizIon- A buffed up Wookiee addicted to spice.

Young David- What do you want to be? It looks like we are going to be playing the scum of the galaxy :)

A-WING Guy- A Dug Scoundrel that is a Bartender.

Kvan (me)- I'm thinking on a Xexto fringer.

08-21-2001, 02:21 PM
looking at this list, i'm really tempted into becoming a good bounty hunter, intent on hunting down the scum of the galaxy.. :D
How intense is RPG'ing anyway when it comes to time / play ?

It all all depends on the senario Wriath is making. :)
BTW Bounty Hunters a prestige classes so you'll need to talk to wraith about that :)
Also I forgot to mention, Could you guys post your names of your characters, age, height, weight, eye color, hair color, skin color. :) They aren't that important but we should have them. And for thoughs of you that I don't what you are yet, just post that too, thanks :)

Wraith 5
08-21-2001, 02:43 PM
To add to what Kvan said i would like a full pc sheet from everyone when we get that far.

I know some of you are think, what in the blue hell is he talking about...

Don't worry about it right now, just make up as muc of the stuff Kvan said and write it down, so you won't forget.

Know am i going to hav eto make a game to fit everyone???

That is going to be really hard, but ithink i coud do it, it will just take some time.

Last, i now i am going to regret this, but if there are a few and i mean no more then 2 people, that really want to play chiss, i can work them into the old republic era.

Now if there are more then 2 people that want to play chiss, we won't use them right now. I don't want any one to get pissed at someone else because that person got to paly a chriss and they didn't. PM me if you are one of the people who want to play chiss, don't post it here right now.

Wraith it shouldn't be too hard, if you want you can say some of our characters know eachother already :) That should speed things up a bit

Tie Guy
08-21-2001, 03:13 PM
Ok, i'm gonna be a kubazi scout.

Name: ???
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 125 lbs.
Eye color: green (wears red goggles
Skin color: greenish-blue
Hair color: none (wears a cloak)

oh, and i found this: Is this a template?

Force Probability: 1%
Health Bonus: +0
Race Multiplier: 1

Skills:
perception (2)
stealth (2)

Special:
nothing

Kvan
08-21-2001, 03:18 PM
Um, Tie? Your not being that snitch from ANH are you? I think we are supposed to make up your own character :)
Oh and a Kubaz template looks like this;

-2 Str, +2 Cha, +2 Int. Kubaz are very social and educated, but they aren't particularly strong.

Medium-size. As Medium-size creatures, Kubaz have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.

Kubaz base speed is 10 meters.

+4 species bonus to Survival checks. Kubaz come from a harsh desert world and are taught to survive with minimal resources.

Scent. This allows the Kubaz to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell. See SWRPG Core Rulebook, p.257, for complete description of Scent ability.

Automatic Languages: Kubaz, Basic.
But you don't have to worry about all that :)

Tie Guy
08-21-2001, 03:24 PM
you have no idea how long i tried to think up a name. I couldn't think of anything that sounded good, and i have nothing to base it on. I wanted to make up my own, and i will keep trying.

Kvan
08-21-2001, 03:29 PM
Thats good that your trying! :) I haven't even thought of a name for my character :)
So do you want to use the rest of the stuff still? Your gonna be a Kubaz?

Darth_Rommel
08-21-2001, 03:47 PM

Actually I do! +2 Int, -2 Cha.

Medium-size. As Medium-size creatures, Quarren have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.

Quarren base speed is 10 meters.

+4 species bonus to Survival checks.

Low-Light Vision. Quarren see twice as far as a Human in dim light (such as moonlight or underwater). They retain the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.

Amphibious. As amphibious creatures, Quarren can breathe either air or water normally. They also have a +4 species bonus on Swim checks.

Automatic Languages: Quarren, Basic.
What Class are you going to be Rommel?

Darth_Rommel
08-21-2001, 03:52 PM
Just wondering... do you have trandoshan template? I'll try being a soldier at first ;)

Kvan
08-21-2001, 03:57 PM
Yeah I have a Trandoshan. So you are going to be a Trandoshan and you class is Soldier? Whats your occupation? Are you a merc.? A smuggler? A trooper? It has no effect on your stats, it's just to help wraith in designing a campaign :)

Trandoshans are large, reptilian humanoids from the planet Trandosha (or Dosha). They have supersensitive eyes that can see into the infrared range and the ability to regenerate lost limbs when they are young. They also shed their skin. Trandoshans are a warlike species who allied early with the Empire, taking Wookiees as slaves. They value hunting above all else and worship a female deity known as the Scorekeeper, who awards jagannath points to Trandoshans based on their success or failure in the hunt. They have a difficult time manipulating delicate objects with their relatively clumsy clawed hands. The bounty hunter Bossk, and his father Cradossk (one-time head of the Bounty Hunters Guild) were both Trandoshans.

Trandoshans can use their heightened sense of smell to 'scent' for a particular person, determining if that person has passed through the area recently. Trandoshans can also use their claws in combat, inflicting long, dripping wounds with 'tear'. Trandoshans gain a +1 to strength and -1 to dexterity.

Ooops... here's more:

SCENT
Syntax: scent (player)

This skill allows a Trandoshan to determine if has been in that area recently.

This skill is only useable by Trandoshans.


TEAR
Syntax: tear (target)

Trandoshans can inflict terrible bleeding wounds on their victims using their dreadful claws in combat. While the initial damage is not large, the wounds continue to bleed for some time, thus weakening the Trandoshan's victim.

This skill is only useable by Trandoshans.


Oh and Kvan... this site maybe helpful:

Yup Trandoshans are pretty nasty! :)
Actually Rommel, I can't find most of the stuff you posted in the book :confused:

ooo... Kvan look! A site that lists all of the special powers:

I found all this stuff on assorted sites, so... I could probably be wrong about alot of it :(

I've never played before.... but you say that you'll teach us newbies, so I'll be a Defel (wraith), or a Dug. My class will be scoundrel... okay?

Does our chosen species have to be sentient?

Well for the most part you can just make up a job. Is Bartender what you want?

Felix29
08-21-2001, 04:48 PM
Well... I guess so. How do different jobs affect you? As a bartender would I have a higher ranking in say, social skills?

Young David

Okay ... I figured some things out. I just hope I'll be permitted. I haven't figured naming and things like that out. Just the stats:

Ryn

Ryn are a nomadic species hailing from an unknown region of the Core. They are descended from flying mammals, and are covered in short, bristly hair that is often of varying color. Ryn have a reputation of being thieves and confidence men, but are usually good to get along with. In addition to wearing outlandish and sometimes vulgar fashions, they have tremendous music aptitude - which likely evolved along with their perforated, flute-like beak.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
d20 stats:

+2 Wisdom, -2 Charisma. Ryn are very well versed in the workings of cultures across the Galaxy. While their nomadic nature has given them a good amount of practical knowledge, their secrecy and reputation as con men and ne'er-do-wells has bred prejudice among the rest of the galaxy.
Medium-size: As medium-size beings, Ryn have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Ryn base speed is 10 meters.
Prehensile Tail: Ryn have limited use of their tails. They have enough control to move relatively heavy objects (under 90 kilograms), but the control is not fine enough to perform fine manipulation (for example, to aim a weapon).
Perceptive: Ryn gain the Sharp-eyed feat for free.
Automatic Languages: Ryn, Basic.

And ofcourse, my ship:

YT-1210 Light Freighter

The first upgrade of the YT-1200 (featuring a shield generator and a faster hyperdrive), this freighter had a fairly short production run because its innovations led to the YT-1300 only a few decades later. Nonetheless, it has been very common throughout the Galaxy for over two centuries.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
d20 stats:

Craft: Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1210 Transport
Class: Transport
Cost: 20,000 (used)
Size: Small (35 m)
Crew: Normal +2 (2 crew)
Passengers: 4
Cargo Capacity: 100 tons
Consumables: 2 months
Hyperdrive: x2 (backup x16)
Maximum Speed: Attack
Defense: 21 (+10 armor, +1 size)
Shield Points: 30
Hull Points: 120
DR: 10
Weapon: Laser cannon
Fire Arc: Turret
Attack Bonus: +5 (+1 size, +2 crew, +2 fire control)
Damage: 4d10x2
Range Modifiers: PB +0, S +0, M/L n/a

Okay, maybe I'm too demanding. But can I be a spacer? It is not listed in your list, but there are spacer in the SW universe. Not a smuggles. Just someone who tries to make his money with transporting goods and people ...

Felix29
08-21-2001, 04:56 PM
Oh... how do we figure out ages? I have no idea how long a Defel lives :(


Defel... mercenary (class: soldier) I guess :) (why would you have an invisible bartender? ;) )

Name:Ofvatra Vslang

Age: 24 (a guess)

Height: 1.5 metres

Weight: 152 lbs.

Eye Colour: Red

Skin Colour: Covered in fur (only visible in ultra violet light)

Hair Colour: Black fur (only visible in ultra violet light)

Ok, I've been in a few online RPGs before, I'll try this one, before I post my character, and his stats, is it possible to have all the conformed rules, and stuff put in a single post?

P.S. If you're having trouble coming up with an SW name, try this (http://www.america.net/~jwright/swname.htm).

Gamma732
08-21-2001, 05:00 PM
Yes, Gamma732 is well aware of the traditions of the Gand, however, being a merc-type person, Gamma732 may see it fit to have Gamma732's character to part from those traditions. Gamma732 will decide later when he has more time. That is if ya smell what..........ah forget it lol ;)

08-21-2001, 05:07 PM
From the SW Essential Guide to Alien Species: 'Their orange super sensitive eyes can see into infared range"- I see defel :D Oh and Kvan, I'm a young Trandoshan, so I can regenerate limbs ;)

Kvan
08-21-2001, 05:08 PM
Ok, gamma whats your Class?
Awing, I can't find a template for your Defel :(

Darth_Rommel
08-21-2001, 05:21 PM
Why don't you make one up, Kvan? Here's the info in the essential guide to aliens:

Defel/ Wraith

Designation: Sentient

Planet of Origin: Af'El

Average Height: 1.7 metres

The Defels, often called wraiths, are stocky, fur covered humanoids with protruding snouts and hands with long claws and triple jointed digits. They can only be seen undert ultra violet light. In standard light, Defels appear to be little more than ghosts- red eyed shdows that are difficult to detect with the human eye. They have the ability to bend light around there bodies, causing them to blend in with there surroundings. Defel's live in underground cities on their homeworld, where they are known for their ore mining facilitiesand there excellence in metallurgy. Offworld, Defels are often hired as spies and assassins due to there ability to 'disappear'

*gasps* So much typing :(

Here's what I get for attributes: Dexterious (metallurgy, triple jointed), Good social skills (live together in underground cities), Good sense of smell (long nose)... can anyone think of others?

Kvan
08-21-2001, 05:26 PM
I'm going to leave that to wraith to make up :D
Or if anyone else can find it...

Darth_Rommel
08-21-2001, 05:28 PM

Young David

YT-2000 are fairly new models. They play a big role in XWA, I don't know if they were manufactored back then.

BTW Rommel ... I also have a position open for a CO-pilot, so you can sit in my craft :)

So, YD wanna be friends :D

Young David

Lets see... I'm a young (by trandoshan standards) Like all Trandoshans, I hate wookiee's... (especially wookiees on steriods ;)) I was one of the trandoshans involved in planning an assault on Kashyyk... but since the attack failed I was disgraced, and all my jagaanath points were taken away... So I became a merc, in order to earn back my jagaanath points and earn a spot in the afterlife... Thats all I can think of right now... I'll add more later ;)

I've already posted my stats, but my background. Hmm, that'll take some thought.

I'll be a Chiss who was banished from the homeworld (no doubt for being too cool). He was taken to a planet and dropped of where he was later found be a trader, who felt sorry for him and took him to the next planet on his trade run. That planet was where he met up with. . .whoever's playing in our RPG.

How's that? Not too farfetched is it?

Wait, wait. I know someone is gonna say that I couldn't be a Jedi cause I'm too old right. Well, here's my revised version. The Chiss was hidden on that planet for an unknown reason and the trader picked him up (he was only 1 or 2) but didn't have time to raise him so he gave him to his friend who was a Jedi, and the Jedi saw that he was Force adept or whatever and put him in the Jedi temple to be trained (it was the best thing he could think of to do with the boy). And so, now I'm a Jedi Guardian (who is I'm thinking 17 years old).

Hey guys, I have a few questions. I have played a very small amount of rpg sessions, however, never on-line. The idea of a starwars rpg sounds kind of interesting, but I don't have a lot of time to be able to play. So, what are the time commitments that we are talking about, and how will the game work. Will we have a dedicated time that everyone gets together, or will it just sort of be whenever and whoever. Also, is it ok if not everyone is there all the time. I realize that it makes it sort of difficult for th player to keep up with what is going on if they are never there, but I am just trying to decide if this is something that I can and want to do. And lastly, if there is a dedicated time to meet, are there any thoughts on when that might be?

idea to get me back on track...

everyone email me you have or would like, i have no idea who is what or has what.

email thor.m.wright@uwrf.edu

*Thinks to himself* I never thought that in 5 hours this thread would grow 5 pages...

I know you all want me to tell you yes or no, but i really need to know what you want me to say yes or no to, so please send me thouse emails

p.s. also email me any question you have about making a pc or question you have about your pc.

Alright let me get this straight. The partners are:

1. YD and Kvan

2. Rommel and Gamma732

3. TIEguy and thrawn12786 (me)

I believe Clefo is playing, is he not? Who is he with?
Any others?

IMPORTANT EVERYONE READ THIS!!!
Perhaps someone should post a thread in which each person only gets one post (you can edit it though). And each person should post their pc and what they want to have, weapons ships etc.. Also partners. Someone do this and itll be alot easier! :D

PS I'll be back on tomorrow, err Wednesday (for me).

This is a good idea! I'd like to join if it doesn't take too much of a time requirement. I'm simply not online enough each day to play if I have to post more than once or twice a day on what my character is doing though.

I don't have any of the books yet, but like I said in another thread, I was already planning on buying them online the next time my credit card can spare the cash;)

I'd like to play an Ubese on his way to becoming a Bounty Hunter. In the same type of armor that Boushh wore (the armor that disguised Leia in RoTJ). Does the entire race wear that when travelling off planet, or was it just battle armor?

I'm not sure there's any stats for the Ubese, but if there isn't, there doesn't seem to be any major differences between them and humans that I can tell.

The only description of his armor that I can find comes from an online source: "He was an Ubese who spoke in a strange metallic voice and wore a helmet presumably equipped with numerous sensors, a macrobinocular viewplate, and other gadgets."

There is no Old Republic Sourcebook yet, I think you're talking about the new Rebellion Era Sourcebook. The Secrets of Naboo and the Living Force Campaign are both set during the Old Republic Era though. The Secrets of Tatooine has information on that planet for all three eras.

Since we'll be using these forums to play, I think a good idea would be for everyone to create a special account for their RPG character. That way you'd be posting under your characters name and you could find a suitable avatar to show us what your character looks like.

Gamma732
08-21-2001, 11:07 PM
What about people like me who don't know how to make avatars? ;)

General Nilaar
08-21-2001, 11:48 PM
It's pretty easy. All you have to do is find a picture on the net that can serve to be a representation of what your character looks like, and then get it to fit into the 70x70 pixel space allowed. Most likely by cutting everything off except the head and shrinking it down to the desired size. Then upload it to the GB.com server on the same page you clicked on to get to the avatar selection page, and there's your avatar.

I claim the armor that Leia used to disguise herself in Return of the Jedi! Hey, it belonged to a guy before she ended up with it;)

Well we are playing in the Old Rep. (or Rise of the Empire if you will) era, so nothing like Stormtrooper armor or stuff like that.
No, Siths either
Hey Jay here is a perfect weapon for you :) Ryyk blade (http://www.swrpgnetwork.com/entry.php?id=254)

I would LOVE to play, problem is I haven't played the RPG since it's changed hands from West End to Wizard. I had twenty different source books and played like a fiend when it was West End. This new 20D system is new to me (At leat on a Star Wars game, I have played AD&D extensively) So I would have to relearn Character creation on a 20D system as well as new combat rolls and numbers etc... :(

Would someone be willing to teach an old dog new tricks?:D

General Nilaar
08-22-2001, 08:19 AM
Looking at the type of characters everyone wants to be, anybody else think we should call Tatooine home?

Since there is no Old Rebublic Sourcebook out yet, the GM may want to pick up the Secrets of Tatooine sourcebook for help with a campaign setting. Might save him a little bit of time at least;)

From what I've heard about it, it gives info for all three time periods. I'm sure everything would be useful though, just replace any Stormtroopers with Trade Federation Battle Droids and you're good to go;)

The other two settings are the Secrets of Naboo and the Living Force Sourcebook. Both are useful for showing other locations in the Old Republic time period.

Anyone interested can find reviews for all Star Wars D20 books at: http://www.swrpgnetwork.com/subcat.php?sort=contenttype&subsort=3

Nilaar welcome to the game.

I just pickup the core and darkside sorce book, but did not see the Secrets of Tatooine book.

And you aer right, there is no old republic sorce book, i most have saw it as a comeing soon thing, or something.

The link the Nilaar gave is the sheet that i want from everyone, you don't need to (and please don't) send me a scan of the sheet, just send me the info on it, i can fill out other one on my end if i so choose.

Nilaar the idea about new handels is a cool idea, but the mods my not like it. I will send a note to chris and ask him what he thinks.

I plan on this being on of the last post in this thread, it is getting way to big, and i am have trouble trying to keep up.

So here is the plan...

I am going to start a new thread i want every one to post what you want for a pc in there (keep sending me emails if you already havn't!!!), there will also be a new thread for questions, this you can ask questions, and talk about what you want to do with your pc's please don't talk about them in the other thread, i don't care if youchange your mind and post a new pc just don't talk about them.

These 2 new threads will start with "swrpg:" if you feel the need to start a new thread and it is about swrpg, always use "swrpg:" first, that way everyone will know what the topic is about.

Thank you and please keep sending me your emails!!!
