    So I've been wanting to do this for awhile now. And I think it's time to put the gears in motion. This will be about building your OWN Star Wars movie. This will probably be moved to gaming eventually but to gauge interest, I wanted to post first in here where there's more traffic.

    (Hopefully) Ten people will join and we will run a draft where you will select your writer, director and four actors. Then when it's all over, you will pitch your movie and a poll will run and the winner will be voted on by your fellow Cantina-ites. We will settle on an exact time limit per pick (it will be a good chunk of time due to the global nature of the Cantina) and if you miss a pick you'll be allowed to make it on your return based on where we are in the draft.

    Order will be chosen at random in a snake draft (the last pick in the first round drafts last in the next round and so on).
    ex:
    1. Person A
    2. Person B
    3. Person C
    1. Person C
    2. Person B
    3. Person A

    Who can you select? Anyone who is alive and not retired or deceased (duh).
    So John Williams and Larry Kasdan are out because they're "retired" from Star Wars.
    And George Lucas would also be ineligible due to him being "retired" as well.
    Any other questionable choices will be decided by non-partisan members.
    Other than things like that, your creativity is your only limit.

    The draft will be ten rounds. Now, I know what you are thinking, "Ten? you just said a director, writer and four actors! That's only six!" Yes. You have four wildcard picks to use on any other members of the movie. Be it more actors, a composer, cinematographer etc. Build the movie the way you think will sell it best.

    Things to think about when drafting:
    potential for a writer/director (but remember, this can be a negative as much as a positive)
    What do you value more? An actor? A director? Prioritize and pay attention to trends.

    I will be running it as the commissioner. so if you are concerned you may run late for a pick, send me a list of your top choices and I can make the pick for you. Or if you want you can nominate a second person to be your celebrity picker (clarify with me first so I know it's above board). If this goes well myself and @DarthSnow have discussed running more of these, with fun variants. I hope this explains it well enough. Happy to answer more questions as needed.

    Right now, it's about gauging interest and seeing if we can get 10 folks into it. The actual game wouldn't start until after the holidays so no one feels pressed around them.

    I'm in! If enough people sign on for this I'll step back and help run it if needed, but otherwise I'd love to play!

    I don't know if my English level is adequate for playing a game like this.
    But I would like to give it a try :D

    @RoyleRancor -- this can be a collaborative effort correct? As in, if myself or others would like to work with one or two other members (not already listed here) that would be cool?

    @RoyleRancor are canon characters or existing characters off-limits?

    for your story? It's up to you. Just have to recognize the baggage that obviously goes along with it.

    Yeah, for instance there can be some sticky areas -- if you want to include a story that might involve Luke Skywalker, the ST-era might be off-limits since Hamill has presumably portrayed Luke for the last time. But, if you wanted something more immediately post-RotJ, you could take into consideration what they did with Mando. Which if you're going to rely on CGI-ing someone you might have to do some convincing to The Powers That Be (aka Royle)...

    Thanks! And yeah, don't worry, I'm not touching OT or ST stuff. (Maybe PT, but that really depends on a couple of factors.)

    Okay. Here is the official draft order for the first round:

    1. @Use the Falchion
    2. @Jayson
    3. @RockyRoadHux
    4. @oldbert
    5. @DarthSnow
    6. @gholc15
    7. @MandoChip
    8. @Flyboy
    9. @steakfromjakefarm
    I will set up a separate thread specifically and only for the picks. We will keep all discussion in here preferably. I'll update the first post of that thread with picks as they roll in. But once the pick before you is made you can go ahead and make yours. If you cannot participate just let me know and I'll make the moves needed.

    Remember you are drafting actors/directors etc not characters...not sure if there was some confusion there or not but wanted to be clear just in case.

    Thread for drafting will be up shortly.
