Okay, I'm willing to begin another Star Wars game for those that truly enjoy this universe. I know I do!

So far, I don't have an era to run it in yet, but I'm sure I'll get some suggestions. I'm very comfortable with Rebellion Era, but I can handle post ROtJ Era as well. I don't like the Yuzon Vong or however you spell that, cause it just didn't feel like Star Wars to me. So I might not be willing to go on with that stuff. I really enjoyed Timothy Zahn's storyline though, and could make a fun run in that area of time!

So any suggestions as to era and what flavor you want it to be would be appreciated!

Posted by: theophilus Sep 17 2005, 09:09 PM
Hey Jamfke,

Thanks for the invite. I'm in for whatever game type you'd like to run. (this is ambrose82 from RPG.net, by the way)

I really didn't look too much at Zahn or the New Jedi Order stuff, so I'm not as familiar with that SW galaxy. I've got resources for it if you want to go that way. I won't be too picky.

Posted by: jamfke Sep 17 2005, 09:11 PM
Cool! Welcome aboard!

Posted by: netjedi Sep 17 2005, 09:17 PM
Right after Endor? Both the Empire and the New Republic have a strong presence. Independents and Criminals are also very active. Makes for a good free for anything feel.

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 18 2005, 06:53 AM
This looks interesting, count me in.
I don't care what era

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 18 2005, 07:48 AM
Me! Me! Pick me! I want to be in it too! biggrin.gif

Count me in.

I dont actually care which era we play, but if i should choose it would either be Timothy Zahn's or Rebellion Era.

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 18 2005, 08:06 AM
not familiar with the TZ era...

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 18 2005, 09:21 AM
Then you should get the three books he has written.

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 18 2005, 12:13 PM
is it the thrawn caimpagn??

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 12:52 PM
Aye it is laddy!

This. Then Jamfke wrote 'Aye it is laddy.' I just want to know if it is in the time of Thrawn.

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 01:25 PM
"Aye it is laddy!" = Yes sir, indeed it is the Thrawn Campaign, but slightly before. I'm thinking of having it during all the chaos of the New Republic while it's trying to get everything under control. biggrin.gif

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 18 2005, 01:28 PM
how many are you lookikng for before starting??

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 01:34 PM
I'm going to cap it off at 6. If we get more folks interested, well, they'll just have to start their own game. tongue.gif

I'll let this sit for another day or two to see if we get up to that total, if not then we'll start with what we've got.

I'll post a thread for character sheets with the title of the game whenever I come up with one, after we get all interested partys here.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 18 2005, 01:37 PM
SO if nobody turns up, its just me, NEW KID, that theorphilus guy and Netjedi?

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 01:41 PM
That's right!

Posted by: netjedi Sep 18 2005, 02:26 PM
I'd be willing to give it a shot as well Jamfke wink.gif

Anything in particular you ARE/ARE NOT looking for in characters? Like in rebel uprisings you had stated one smuggler etc.

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 02:39 PM
This time around, I'm willing to allow everything! Within reason of course!

do u require a certain length for background??
or is it the shorter the better??

also, rebel or empire??

or, just independant

Posted by: jamfke Sep 18 2005, 08:43 PM
Write it as long as you want, just no books!

I figure we'll toss it up to a vote as to what the group wants to play.

Let me see a show of votes.

A New Republic

B Empire

C Independent

Posted by: netjedi Sep 18 2005, 08:47 PM
I'm easy, any of the above. wink.gif

i don't really mind, i hav a character already for each

I do not see why not even if it is New Republic. Could be an Ex-Stormy, now merc or new republic security. It's all in the background. But of course the decision is left with the GM.

wow you guys post fast

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 18 2005, 08:52 PM
i hav a stormy, nr spec force, security, or mercenary biker ready

Posted by: theophilus Sep 18 2005, 09:07 PM
Hmmm... I was thinking an Imperial scout just returning to find out his employer is no longer in control of things. As he was little impressed by their managemnet anyway, he'd be trying to find his place either a. with the New Republic as an experienced scout, b. with the Imperial remnant as a loyalist, or c. with some independant trading corporation interested in discovering new trade routes.

In either case he'd be a bit twitching after long years alone in unexplored space.

I have another idea Jamfke is already familiar with (Keeli), who I'd also be willing to play.

Hey man, whatever you wanna play is cool with me!

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 18 2005, 11:52 PM
Well I dont care which actually. The three are fine with me. Just hoping that wont kill Jedi's. ohmy.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 19 2005, 06:41 AM
I'm DEFINITELY in! I'll work up a Jedi character to run and PM you (jamfke) to flesh out the details.

Still room, everyone!

I'm fine for whatever era you wanna do. Let me know, because that will change aspects of this Jedi I'm working up.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 20 2005, 10:06 AM
Is there a character sheet thread coming up or what? Cuz' i have my character ready for posting!

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 20 2005, 01:47 PM

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 20 2005, 03:13 PM

Coming up tomorrow.

So, what's the verdict?

Let me see your votes:

A New Republic

B Imperial Remnant

C Independent whatevers


Posted by: theophilus Sep 20 2005, 04:47 PM
C - independant whatevers

or

A - New Republic

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 20 2005, 05:09 PM
A or B

Posted by: netjedi Sep 20 2005, 07:41 PM
A is good
B is interesting
c is better

Oh! fudge!

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 20 2005, 11:45 PM
Independant! C! C! C! ohmy.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 06:32 AM
How many credits to buy equipment for?

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 07:42 AM
Exactly what era are we going to be in?

By the way, I'm thinking independent, perhaps with loose ties to the NR.

Thrawn Trilogy, i think that's what we agreed on.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 07:46 AM
Oh yeah! That's right! Since New Kid is in this one too I keep crossing the two in my mind.

Or are we in the same era for that one as well? blink.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 07:47 AM
New Republic Era = NEW KID's.

Thrawn Era = Jamfke's.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 08:02 AM
Technically, they're BOTH New Republic Era... The NR was already ensconced on Coruscant. Now, was that just AFTER the Thrawn trilogy, or during?

I know, but is just not to mix things up.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 08:07 AM
No prob.

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:15 PM
mine is after the THrawn caimpaign if anyones confused

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 01:16 PM
Okay, thanks!

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:10 PM
Beautiful. We're there, dude!

Posted by: jamfke Sep 21 2005, 04:31 PM
Mine's actually just before the Thrawn trilogy, like in the five years after Endor era.

Plus, I'm thinking of trying something new here, so bear with me!

Okay, I'm going to sort of rearrange everything in my game forum a bit. If you've already posted your character, and you don't have a copy on your computer, then get one. I'm removing the character sheet thread. Those that haven't posted your characters just PM them to me. I'm going to create a thread within my game forum for each world you guys will visit. Also, you will be playing your characters individually at the beginning, so if you want to play a rebel, go ahead, if you want to play an imperial, be my guest, and if you want to be a bounty hunter, ooooh, just ooooooh!

You guys will cross each others paths during the game, you may even be working together from time to time, and you might even be working together while secretly working against each other...hehehehe!

You may team up if you like, I won't deny that, and actually encourage that in specific cases. The reason I'm going this way is that if you are a hardcore poster, I'll be able to cater to your character more often than if you are with someone that can only post two or three times a day sporadically. This way, those that are only able to be online at certain times don't have to be with the group to get things done. Of course, if you do join up with somebody, then you'll have to wait for their posts if you aren't online at the same time they are.

We'll see how this goes. Hopefully it'll rock! I think I've seen it on a few other sites, so it doesn't seem to be a new idea.

This may get a little confusing at first, but it should be fun!

We'll see!

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 04:44 PM
Stormy going your way then

I got my character saved, so I am G2G biggrin.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 22 2005, 01:54 AM
I also have my character saved, so you can just do what you want! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 05:48 AM
And I'll have mine posted today, barring something unforeseen...

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 22 2005, 12:29 PM
I'm actually thinking of also starting out as GM. But i will wait till one of the other games is done or at least finished with the main mission.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 12:38 PM
Not a bad idea; don't want too much on your plate at once.

My character's been sent to the GM for approval. With luck, you'll all meet him tomorrow.

Ciao for the day!

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 22 2005, 12:40 PM
Ciao! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 23 2005, 06:34 AM
My character's been submitted and approved. Locked and cocked, ready to rock!

Posted by: Teradoxx Jan 17 2006, 02:55 PM
(Hope somebody is still checking this site).

I'm sad to annouce that I am dropping out of the PbP's I play in here on the site. I have ALOT going on (Especialy wiht the school.), so I have to say my goodbye's to PbP for now.

I wish all luck in their furture PbP endeavours. And to you who have'nt tried it yet, DO IT! It rocks!

Posted by: jamfke Jan 17 2006, 05:32 PM

Thanks. It's been great.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Jan 18 2006, 09:24 AM
Yeah, Skaff! It sucks that you have to drop outta the games; we'll miss you. Make sure you keep popping in and saying hi!

Posted by: Chabit Rane Jan 18 2006, 12:24 PM
Need another player?

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Jan 18 2006, 02:28 PM
Definitely! Welcome aboard!

Jamfke's just waiting to see how many people are gonna play so he can get this thing going.

Posted by: Chabit Rane Jan 18 2006, 06:00 PM
Thats great. Hum, what to be.....

Posted by: Orgaloth Jan 21 2006, 12:39 AM
So what are people playing? My character is posted.

Posted by: Shathio Jan 21 2006, 06:28 AM
Greetings All
Im interested in joning if players are still be accepted. Im new to Pbp games and im interested in giving it a try.

Posted by: jamfke Jan 21 2006, 04:12 PM
Not a problem. The games tend to go slowly, but you will be able to banter with the other characters if the GM isn't around.

If you are interested in playing in my game, it will be taking place about 6 months after RotS. Stat up a character and PM it to me and I'll let you know if there are any changes that need to be made.

Posted by: Orgaloth Jan 21 2006, 08:40 PM
I'm ready. Let's PLAY!!! yeah.gif

Posted by: Darth Windu Jan 22 2006, 04:29 PM
Yay! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Feb 14 2006, 03:47 PM
Hey, all you PbP super-freaks! tongue.gif

Just wanted to check in and hear how all the PbP games are going?

P.S.: These new smilies ROCK! starwars.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Feb 14 2006, 04:05 PM
Don't they? dj.sml.gif

Glad to see yer still around, Skaff!

Our game's going alright. We're starting to get to know each other, and we're off on our first mission as a group. It's definitely going to prove interesting, especially since we're actually working right alongside of R2-D2 and C-3PO!

Pretty cool, huh?

Posted by: Teradoxx Feb 14 2006, 04:09 PM
Yup, they are are definetly cool! hammer.sml.gif

That's darn cool! Now, is R2-D2 inhabitated by a dwarf?

P.S.: Pretty cool signature, huh? (If you say no, you'll know what happens.. smiley_karate.gif )
