    Hey guy's welcome to a star wars rp which is going to be your characters pertaining to a story much like a tv series in a way i'll have daily "episodes" or situations is another name and if the story so far is going great i'll have multiple parts to the episode until we can have a final conclusion all you have to do is come up with your character and how your character will react and the combat will work based on the skill set you give your character.
    Rules:
    1. no over powered characters for example you can't just come up with this jedi character then all of the sudden say "I used jedi mind trick on everybody and then they did my bidding" that's in essence changing the story on how it works.
    2. if you want a jedi or a sith character that's fine but keep your force powers to a limit we can't all be mighty and powerful.
    3. if you practice a skill set you can get better at it but there is a limit read rules 1 and 2 to understand why
    4. sith and villan characters are allowed but your goals are different to the story pm me if you want details
    5. backstories are encouraged but you can't make them overpowered
    6. try to make this canon and plausible in the star wars universe
    7. have fun
    8. keep in mind this is an experiment this game started with my brother and his friend and i'm bringing on here to see if it works because I want to share the fun experince I have playing this with my brother and his friend
    9. if you create a character while a story is going already your character will be in the next chapter and i'll tell you when I put the new character in
    with the rules being said let's get started

    I think that it should take place in between ROTJ and TFA.

    Actually this should be the sign up page. If possible change it to 'Star Wars Roleplay: Sign-up'. Here is my character

    Character name: Bek Kelrian
    Role (ex: jedi, rebel soldier, etc.): Jedi in training
    Weapons: Blue cross-guard saber, blaster pistol
    Skills: Good with saber, skilled with x-wing, and persuasive.
    Appearance: wavy black hair, about 5'7 in height, cargo pants with dark brown leather jacket.
    From (planet): Alderaan
    Story of Your Character: Bek Kelrian grew up orphaned on the planet of Coruscant. At the age of seven, he encountered a jedi knight who sympathized for him so he took him under his wing and trained him to use the force, be skilled with a lightsaber, and fly with the x-wing. Bek's jedi master was killed on a mission to find an ancient holocron. Bek now longs to join the resistance.

    The story is about the starbird squadron. An elite fighter group of all types doesn't matter what race or background the only thing that matters is if you can fight well and take care of yourself. In or out?

    Why not go for an Era of your own? Say, a period set between the Old Republic Era and the Clone Wars Era? It's a vast unexplored (mostly) 3000-year period that'll really give everyone lots of freedom with their characters. For example, if say, we go for the 30-year period that's between ROTJ and TFA, then that automatically precludes the use of crossguard lightsabers (since Kylo Ren's was meant to have somewhat of an exclusivity).

    There's also the problem with the Resistance, which hasn't really been formed up until the closing years of that time period - same goes for the First Order (at least, its introduction to the galaxy). So, we'd have a time period where the only Jedi running around are a couple of Luke's padawans; there's no grand scale galactic conflict; no direct rival to the Jedi (we can't mess with the timeline of the KoR's attack on Luke's Jedi Academy).

    In fact, the greatest reason I'd avoid anything close to the movies right now is due to the fact that Disney is actively molding and reshaping that time period at a quick pace - we'd possibly be facing contradictions very early-on, for example. If this time period is kept and we plan on not breaking the lore, I can either see the game set on a much smaller, personal scale (like a treasure hunt for lost Jedi/Sith relics) or a "political plotting and manipulation" game where several characters try to push their agendas.

    Yes I agree with this. Plenty of time to do pretty much anything, with no contradictions.

    Hello, is this is still a thing?

    Because I'd gladly toss in a character idea or two if so

    Character Name: Dip Dink
    Monicker: "Fritz"
    Role: Bounty Hunter
    Weapons: light blaster, jawa stun gun, various explosives
    Skills: Making things explode, repairs, perceptive
    Appearance: Jawa 3' 2". Jawa robes with bits of junk metal strapped to it for "protection"
    From (planet): Tatooine
    Story: Dip Dink is a jawa who is really bad at being a jawa in the normal sense. Dip has had a knack for blowing up most of droid's he tried to fix. It wasn't that he didn't know how to fix the droids, he just liked how they blew up "all pretty like" in a firery explosion better. It got to the point of him intentionally rigging things to explode on the sandcrawler just so he can enjoy the "pretty lights". This type of behavior got him exiled from his clan after a particulary destructive incident and he became a scrap collector on Tatooine, where he would rig up makeshift explosives and the like so he can watch the fireworks. He adopted the name Fritz as a new identity after overhearing someone talking about his handiwork.

    Upon accidentally maiming a wanted criminal one day, Fritz found a new use for his unique set of talents. And now Fritz travels the Galaxy, collecting the bounties of those who underestimate him, with only his plush rancor as a companion. He has currently collected nineteen bounties, and is looking to expand that number by a good hundred.

    Hey every group has a funny guy, I'm fine with that in fact most if my positives are funnies of you can make me laugh me and you will get along great, as long as you don't create a parody tone or break the fourth wall I don't want a Deadpool I want a spiderman because if you want a parody one alamact who is a writer for this rp has a parody one called the interactive comic and it's funny and in a way a parody.
