What timeline does everyone want to do this in? I was shooting for pre-Ep. IV, but it looks like Silas wants it during the Rebellion era or shortly thereafter. That's fine with me too, I like the post Return setting as well.

How bout after Thrawn caimpagn? If that doesn't work than ROTJ time setting. Those are the ones I'm real familiar with anyways. I don't think we should do prequel trilogy settings though.....

That's fine with me. Let's see what DW is going with before making a definite decision.

This is off topic, but I think the RP done here should be the main thing for the RPD Players Competition, as this test each player's RP skill the the extreme max. I think we can have a group of higher status members form a council or something, and give biweekly awards (no real prize, just to help out their ego blbl.gif ) to the top RPers, that gives everyone something to stride for...

just my two cents

We could set up a sort of mini contest along those lines. That would work for me. I want the official contest for the entire site though as this idea would restrict it only to those interested in this particular game.

Is it too late to join?

Not at all! Hop on in! Remember, this is narrative, you'll be telling your character's story. All I'll be doing is creating the new forums for planets and such. My next one is Ryloth, and I'll probably go ahead and put up one for Tatooine for good measure. There's no dice rolling and I won't be resolving combat or anything for you, just try to make it sound good!

This one is for telling a good story.

I like the ROTJ timeframe. Maybe we finish one adventure, we could zoom forward ten years.

Alright, let me get this straight.

When I want to shoot somebody i for example say: ''Warex unholsters his blast, and takes aim for the thug's head. Unfortunately for the thug, he did'nt react fast enough and a piercing bolt of searing laser rushes through his forehead.''

Like that?

I think so. There's no GM except yourself!

Honestly, Jam, I'm open for any time frame. Let me know when it's gonna be, and I'll see if I have a character to write about.

You've got it Skaff! I think I'll like this since I'll actually get to be free from coming up with all the scenarios for everyone. We can do our own thing, and where they cross over with each other, we can do like the banter sessions in the regular roleplaying threads and progress the story along together.

So, it looks like it's going to be After the Battle of Yavin to Return of the Jedi era. How far in do you want it to be? Like just before the attack on the second Death Star, or just after the destruction of the first one? If we want this to run for a while, we could start sometime early on in the conflict.

I'll post a poll for this one.
