View Full Version : For the Associates!

Good day all members of teh Associates.
lets get to the first democratic descission as a group.

our first problem on the agenda is: Location
we have to put our PA base of operations on a suitable location.
the choices are:

Corellia:
Corellia is a planet near the core systems. It has long been known as the birthplace for some of the best smugglers and pirates. Through it's shady reputation, though, is a beautiful planet, full of amazing canyons and spectacular vistas. The infamous Han Solo is from Corellia.

Dathomir:
A dark and foggy planet, Dathomir was used as a prison world for the Old Republic during it's reign in the galaxy. Even after the New Order was established, Imperial forces maintained a prison camp on it's surface. Unbeknown to them, one of the prisoners banished to the world by the Old Republic was a fallen Jedi. Shunned by her fellow knights, she spent her time on Dathomir teaching the other banishees about the force, bringing about an order of force-fueled 'witches.' These female witches proved formidable and were feared even by the Empire, resulting in a loose 'blockade' of the planet during the Galactic Civil War. Dathomir's three continents provide for diverse terrain including mountains, deserts, and swamps.

Endor:
Endor's moon holds a temperate climate, and is home to the furry and amusing Ewoks. The Ewoks are extrememely superstitious. It is said that many beasts and dangers roam the vast forests of the moon.

Naboo:
Naboo is a lush, diverse planet near the Outer Rim. It is home to at least two known sentient species, the Naboo (Humans) themselves and the aquatic Gungans. Naboo was home to the Trade Federation blockade that saw the first signs of deceit from the then noble Senator Palpatine. Naboo is also home to Queen Amidala and the ever lovable (can you sense my sarcasm?) Jar Jar Binks. Naboo is also covered by a large number of diverse species and a dozen or so differing habitats.

Rori:
Rori is a moon orbitting Naboo. It will share many characteristics with Naboo itself, and is colonized mostly by humans. Other then that, little is known.

Talus:
Talus is one of the Twin Planets in the Corellia system. It and it's sister planet, Tralus, orbit the ancient Centerpoint station. Talus is similar in fauna to other planets in the system, such as Corellia, yet it's expansive mud flats and sharp ravines distiguish it from it's close neighbors.

Tatooine:
Tatooine is a hot desert planet in the Outer Rim of the Galaxy. Tatooine was settled by miners hoping to strike it rich on the many precious metals thought to be buried beneath it's deserts. Alas, they didn't find anything, and many of them headed coreward, leaving their great Sandcrawlers to be taken over by the scavenging Jawas. Since that time, Tatooine's future hasn't really gotten any brighter. Moisture Farmers scour it's surface for water to sell in it's many spaceports, such as the infamous Mos Eisley and Anakin Skywalker's hometown: Mos Espa. The Boonta Eve Classic is also a popular tourist draw, with the pod-racing contestants speeding around the challenging course at breakneck speeds. Tatooine is inhabited not only by the human settlers, but also the pre-mentioned Jawas and a vicious race of Sand People, also known as Tuskans. Dangerous sand storms and fearsome predators such as the giant Krayt Dragon make travelling outside the sleazy spaceports and cities a challenge for even the most seasoned explorers.

Yavin:
Yavin is a gas giant planet in a star system of the same name. It is located in the outer-rim territories. Yavin has over two dozen moons, and is also the only place in the galaxy where Corusca gems can be found naturally. Yavin IV, one of it's moons, once housed a rebel base during the reign of the first Death Star. Unknown to the rebels at the time, the ancient temples that housed the base were great sources of power for the evil Sith Jedi Exan Kun. Seven years after RotJ, Luke Skywalker started a Jedi Academy on the moon, and Exar Kun's power grew slowly until he was eventually destroyed by the fledging Jedi.

i voted for naboo. there will be plenty of resources there, and i think the first year of the games running will involve a ludicrous amount of people flowing into the planet to play a game of gungan revenge. (well take advantage of a worldwide hatred of jar jar)

Yeah, I'm going with Corellia as well.

As long as it is populated, as I would have a hard time to figure out what I would be doing on Endor, even more so being pre-RotJ. Now, well, I just hope that the building designs are different on each planet, that would make the decision even harder! (and it would look very good)

Hey, setsuko, you really should join the associates. you'd be a great benefit....on top of that, you could bring in some of your friends from the X side of things....I promise I'll keep my lightsaber to myself =)

Corellia.

From a discussion at swgdownunder, the general opinion is there wont be an aussie server for some time. If that's true the Flufferation will be making a meaningful contribution to the Associates for some time.

Looks like my decision to get cable when i move was a good one.


:D

I think the first one was The Ewok Adventure. Of course that was way back so I could be totally wrong.

I think I was the one who brought up Corellia on the other topic where we discussed this and I'm sticking with it. It has a lot of resources and is an established trade center.

The Dev's have said you will only be able to stay on Endor for a short time, so you probably can't build there.

UGH...STUPID DEMOCRACY...I DEMAND A RECOUNT



not really though...i was gonna say naboo or corellia, and since we apparently have many aspiring smugglers, i guess corellia would be better.

Hmm....

I vote for correlia too because of the central location, overall it'll be more populated that the other choices, and if we did want to eventually try to build ships, well correlia is already known for that!

I voted for corellia too, because of the tradecenter and shipyards. I want to become a trader and an offworld trader when the Xpansion comes out, so it sounds like the perfect planet for me.

On the other hand, I still think we should stick to the planet with the highest customer potential.

So, we're going for Corellia?

That's good cause ' my dad' was a Corellian politician, so I got connections there. :D

For those who have no clue what i'm talking about, go here: Your character? (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=36980) ;) :p

Coreilla.

I think there will be enough people there, but not too much like on Naboo or Tatooine.

So that's a good choice I guess, and there aren't Jawa's there to steal my droids.

05-16-2002, 02:36 PM
Corellia, eh?

Better pack some fashionable pirate-ish clothes then :)
