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

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

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.

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?

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? I have no idea what they are except for the ship..

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


I don't have to blow up everything
I jusk like to.

What? ... you can't name your char Chris? What about Chris3PO .. isn't he allowed to play himself too?

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

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.

looking at this list, i'm really tempted into becoming a good bounty hunter, intent on hunting down the scum of the galaxy..
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

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.

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.

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

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?

Age: 31 How long do trandoshan live?

Height: 2.2 metres

Weight: 238 lbs How much do they weigh?

Eye Colour: Blue (The abnormality of green or blue eyes is looked upon as a status symbol in the Trandoshan culture)

Hair Colour: None

Skin Colour: Light brown/ tan


Kvan: I found this... I'm not sure it useful though

TRANDOSHAN
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:
