    If we're looking to establish a setting still, I've got a massive file of world building I've been doing on my own streamlined version of an Old Republic setting. Basically I've knocked "The History of Humans, the Jedi, the Republic, and the Sith" down to a 2000 year time period, and made it so that "The Galactic Republic" doesn't form until the end of the Sith Wars, when The Coruscanti Republic unites with a faction called The Correlian League to finally defeat the remnants of The Sith Empire.

    I've abandoned the tales of redemption that in my opinion happened way too often in the EU, and I've given reason based on the lore for Obi-Wan and Yoda to think there is no way to redeem Vader. Ulic goes on after his Sith War, which I've rebranded the Jedi Civil War (as it makes more sense) to take Ajunta Pall's place in the old canon. Revan never gets brainwashed, and instead takes over most of the Galaxy when he usurps UIic after training under him following the Mandalorian War. I've made Exar Kun into Darth Ruin, and had him founding the Sith during "The Jedi Civil War." I have the Jedi being formed at the end of the Hundred Year Darkness (which I've basically turned into an era unto itself that boils down to High Fantasy in Space) in order to bring order to the Core Worlds, which are really the only discovered area for a long ass time. So yea... essentially I've done a lot of common sense combining of similar themes to make Star Wars actually be Star WARS and not Star MostlyPeace.

    Edit: Also Vima is now the child of Nomi and Ulic, and plays the significant role she was originally meant to. She takes the place of Bastilla, and the Exile and is an amalgam of the three characters.

    Today I learned Bastila was supposed to be Vima Sunrider, but had to be name-changed over a legal dispute. Come to think of it, this really makes a lot of sense now.

    If you're interested here's the doc file to my custom setting notes. If you guys want to use it as a basis for your own ideas I can share it with y'all to edit as you see fit. I still haven't included a few ideas of my own in here, but those mostly revolve around the secret royal origins of a certain masked conqueror from a planet that is later blown to smithereens as a certain Princess, Moff, and Sith Lord look on ;)

    Not sure how this is setting wise, but I think one of our major hold ups for this is not enough players at the moment.

    We have three so far, where I'm guessing a good jumping off point would be five or six

    Well it'd be helpful in character creation to know what type of era we're using. I don't want to make a character with a rebel pilot in mind only to have the setting be one where the Rebellion doesn't yet exist. I'd gladly create one once I know a bit more.

    Character name: Kaliko
    Role: Smuggler, Pirate, Criminal
    Weapons: Modified Antique Blaster
    Skills: Pick pocketing, Charming, Deceptive
    Appearance: A Twi'lek in her early Twenties, Kaliko has a thin, athletic build, and radiates an aura of youth that most don't expect from a self proclaimed, "Pirate and Notorious Criminal," especially not one with the skills and reputation to back up such a claim.
    From (planet): Hosko
    Story of Your Character: Despite her young age, Kaliko has seen more adventure than most beings see in a lifetime. Taken in by a notorious space criminal while still a girl, Kaliko has spent her life learning the skills needed to survive on the fringes of society. While she initially comes off as too chipper for her own good, and some might call her naive or brash, most of those who have spent more than a couple voyages with her have come to expect a significant amount of worldly wisdom hiding behind that child-like, mischievous smile.

    From my understanding we have four characters so far:

    Male Human Jedi-To-Be

    Female Human Guard Inspector

    Jawa Bounty Hunter

    Female Twi'lek Pirate/Smuggler

    @Silver_Trixter expressed interest in the RP though

    Sorry, work kept me busy as of late and didn't have the website on my phone. (Changed that)

    I am for sure interested. It's been too long since I have been in a good star wars RP and looking forward to joining one! What type of playstyle is it here? Relaxed, rigid, inbetween? Do I need to post a character bio somewhere else on the forum or in this thread? Also, i am thinking of doing bounty hunter with Mandalorian training. Is that doable in the current RP setting?

    That fits in fantastically as Mandalorians were a big thing back then. I fully endorse your decision to make a bounty hunter, as last I remember, the story is supposed to begin on Nal Hutta.

    With Trixter's bounty hunter, all that's missing is the Sith refugee archetype, right? Then it would be the perfect ensemble.

    I might go ahead and usurp that role if no one else wants to pick it up.

    Thanks. :) Here it is. If anything needs tweeked feel free to mention it. None of it is really set in stone.


    NAME: Galen Duin

    FACTION: Bounty Hunter

    RANK: Apprentice

    SPECIES: Half Human Half Zabrack. (Mother was Zabrack and father was Human)

    AGE: 19

    GENDER: Male

    HEIGHT: 5 foot 8 inches

    WEIGHT: 158 pounds

    EYES: Galen's eyes are a piercing Aqua, though in low lighting tend to look more grayish.

    HAIR: His hair is jet black with blood red highlights, it is just past his shoulders and tends to be thick and wavy with a bit of curl at the ends he has small horns, the white tips barely visible above his raven hair.

    SKIN: His skin is a naturally well-tanned color, though when outside in the sun it becomes even darker towards a dark brown much like his mother's.

    CREDITS: 450 credits (Wanting to start out small)

    DISTINGUISHING MARKS: Galen has a single distinguishing mark. Though it looks like a tatoo he claims it is a birth mark. Given his mother's Zabrak heratige it is highly possible that she tatooed this mark on him before he was old enough to remember. The mark is in the form of a snake coiled up on his left shoulder.

    FORCE SENSITIVE: Galen is force sensitive but has no training or awareness of his force sensitivity.


    STRENGTH: His strongest abilities are those of survival. Doing whatever it takes to scrape by. He might end up battered, bruised and homeless in the end... but so far he has always made it out alive.

    DEXTERITY: Galen has a great deal of dexterity and athletic ability. He is slender and muscular allowing him to move swiftly and agile.

    CONSTITUTION: Galen is physicaly fit and in good general health, though he has an unknown condition that causes unexplainable aches and pains in his muscles and body. Most times he is able to ignore these pains, however, in their worst occurrences the terrible pain can be paralyzing.

    INTELLIGENCE: Galen prides himself on his common sense and "Street smarts" but lacks severely in anything technologically advanced, complicated, or mentally advanced.

    WISDOM: Perhaps not a typical "wisdom" Galen posses a sort of intuition. These feelings are often correct and the majority of the time involve his own personal capabilities. He has the innate ability to look at a situation, hurdle, or task, and know almost instantly if he will be able to complete it easily, or if it will be difficult, or even beyond his ability.

    CHARISMA: Having spent his life struggling he has little charisma. He is not a talker, nor does he desire to be. He tends to be blunt, to the point, and speak his mind. He can, however, argue his point and come up with convincing reasons for what he believes.


    SKILLS: Galen has used a blaster his whole life nearly, but lacks any official training with guns. His mother did train him in hand to hand combat and sword use for nearly five years before her death. This is his preferred skillset. He also practices acrobatics and agility excersizes (Free running and/or parkour) in his spare time and is moderately proficient at it given his age, though his skills need much refining.


    STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES: Galen posses his strengths in survival. Knowing where to take shelter, where to run and where to avoid. He can find food and water, tend to minor wounds, and has a decent skill in sneaking and/or stealth. He also is a decent hand to hand fighter. He lacks training, however, and his fighting skills are un-honed and unprofessional with a slight exception to the training His mother provided him in martial arts and sword play. Galen also lacks any kind of negotiation skills and can come off as abrasive in all the wrong moments. When it comes to his comrades, however he is loyal and supportive to the death.

    GEAR: Galen wears a black and red leather outfit. It is simple and looks somewhat like an assassins outfit. Though it is perfect for combat it offers no protection. He carries a simple vibroblade and a blaster on his hip as a secondary weapon. Beyond this he has only simple, basic devices, such as his communicator, data pad, etc....

    SHIP: None

    DROIDS: None

    PETS: None

    PERSONALITY: Galen Duin is in it for himself. Though his loyalty to comrades is unwavering his own survival is always the top priority on his mind. He seeks gain and promotion, but still holds to somewhat of a moral standard in ways of achieving such things. He, however, is careful to do things that constantly seem to contradict his moral standards. In doing this he makes it nearly impossible for anyone to guess what his moral convictions are and thus they can not exploit them.

    Galen tends to be blunt and to the point. He voices his opinions and can tend to be abrasive in all the wrong moments when dealing with hostiles. Towards comrades this abrasive edge is much less but he has never been one to greese palms or gain favor points by going out of his way or norm. He tends to fight his hardest on everything he does. With more brawn than brains he often goes about things the hard way and would rather put physical effort into it rather than mental effort.

    BIOGRAPHY: Growing up on Nal'Huta wasn't the picture of glamor Galen's parents wanted to offer him...it's just what they ended up being forced into by fate. Shortly after his birth, however, Galen's father began a transportation business. In the beginning it was lagit, but with promises of greater credits it soon turned to smuggling on the side. During these early years Galen stayed at home with his mother. His mother, being a zabrak, was sure to teach him some basic hand to hand fighting and sword play. These things kept his mind off his father's absence and assured he was not out on the streets.

    Shortly after Galen's 10th birthday his father was killed in a run in with space authorities. The fate hit his family hard and his mother was forced to hire herself out as a mercenary to the huts. Having no where else to go Galen accompanied his mother on most of her less dangerous missions and stayed back with the hut cartel when she went on more involved tasks. During these times it was his mind to survive and his mother's teachings that he clung to and soon his young mind developed a hard determination to survive no matter what the cost. This determination was bolstered, not crushed, by his mother's death on her last mission just before he turned 11. He tried working for the Hut cartel for a short while but decided that was not the life for him. At age 13 he set out on his own as a bounty hunter, collecting small bounties here and there to build his skills and reputation. It has done little for his wallet, though...

    I like this! A well balanced character! Fits with the established setting perfectly. The story perspective would definitely be richer with the inclusion of a "Nal Hutta native", so to speak.

    The mother could have been a Mandalorian herself? It was not that uncommon to have a Zabrak be part of Mandalorian culture.

    Thanks, and yes. My idea was that sometime later on he discovers his Mandalorian heritage through his mother's line. That can be worked into this RP or sometime later. I figure that I'll continue to use this character in any other RPs I get in on the forum and develop him as I go.

    I'm actually tempted to include him as a neat cameo within the comic thread. Probably missed a golden opportunity with that as we've just departed from Nar Shaddaa, and well, Dantooine doesn't really seem to be the place for it.
