If you're planning to do an RP thread on the boards, the best idea would probably be to use the already set up RP boards. You'll get a much better response and probably more people to join in. The ones I know of are :
Jedi Knight II RP boards
XWA.net RP boards
RSN.net RP boards
Knights of the Old Republic RP boards
Anyway, I'm sure Redwing will the see "Who wants to RP?" title and come running to this topic
Red will sort things out, help you if you need help, and possibly even join in, as Red's known to join RP's from time to time
Hope I helped.
