Star Wars RPG

OK people, after a thread kvan started (Is the darkside book worth getting?) 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 don't have to blow up everything
I jusk like to.

Well I'll be playing
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.

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

Yay! Great idea! I want to play definately!!! I want to be a Chiss Jedi! Whatever realm that's' in is fine with me.

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.


Thrawn's Driving Theories

1. Green light means go. Yellow light means go faster. Red light means you didn't go fast enough.
2. If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the road. . . and the sidewalk. . . heck don't come outside.
3. I'm going to drive really, really fast. That way I'll pass all the scenes of the accidents before they even happen!
4. Real men don't need brakes.
5. If other cars can't feel your CD playing, it's not loud enough.

Motto: As far as I can, as fast as I can, as loud as i can.

Do you have the D20 or D6 version? I think we are going to be playing with the D20.

I don't know what the difference is (as I said I'm not the gamemaster when I play).

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!

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?

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.

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?

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

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?

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

why don't you make a poll on it???

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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".
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?

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.

I wish I read SW Gamer but I don't
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).
