After playing several star wars games that I felt wasn't the way I'd run things, I've decided to make a game myself.
I'm expecting at least one post each day from every player!
Pre-announced absence and emergencies are fine, but send me a pm or tell about them!
I'm expecting half a page of well thought out background for each character
I want you to write in 10 contacts, 2-5 enemies and 2-5 friends in the background. These should not simply be the characters from the movies! Come up with original contacts or use minor characters. And I mean really minor (so not Yoda)
Characters will be picked on basis of background and interesting character concept
I'm not a star wars fan. I thought the movies was ok, and I've not read through all the fluff. I can't guarantee that all will be canon, but I'll try to stick to it as much as possible
I like it as a game setting, and I like the Jedi concept
The short backstory
You might have been purged from the Navy, an Independent Systems supporter, a Jedi persecuted after Order 66 or protester of Palpatines politics, and now the Empire is out to crush you.
On your own you can stand and fight some time, as you're a great hero. Still, you need to sleep some time, and you can't be on several planets at the same time. You need to find allies and you need to organize something powerful enough to oppose the Emperor.
The backstory of the character should end with him or her arriving on Nar Shadaa due to a rumor of someone, and the someone seems not to be the official inquisition at least, kidnapping force sensitive children and bringing them to the Smugglers Moon
The game will develop independently from the story in the original movies and there is no resistance, no Leia and no Luke Skywalker.
