I had written the character up at work, but then left it there in my rush to get out. So I'm going to write it up again and I'll post it later today or tomorrow.

Uh...had a slight weapons malfunction. But, uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?

Received character stats and concepts from Darth Windu and Myn Antilles...Looking good! We've still got some time before we start, so the rest of you, anytime before Friday would be great (June 9th) to get things in to me. smile.gif

I don't think so, I have the majority of your stuff already. wink.gif

Sorry, haven't had time at work to work on the character. Should do today though (generally a quiet day)

Update: We should be ready to kick this game off sometime next week. I've got stats from Jamfke, Darth Windu, Orgaloth, and Myn Antilles. I'm still waiting for backgrounds from a few people, but I have pretty good idea of what I have to work with. I'll be posting more starting information this week (i.e. the pilot, the ship information, and a little bit of history and procedural information for bounty hunters).

Almost done. smile.gif

Hmmm...I was thinking it would always be a good idea to have someone who could coordinate pick ups with you all (so you bounty hunter types could actually do bounty hunting instead of ship duty), but if you don't want someone who can watch the ship and fly it for you all that's up to you guys too. I'm guessing that Orgaloth doesn't want a pilot. Anyone else don't want one?

Perhaps we might be able to cover that with a couple alternatives:

1. An on-board droid, most likely an Astromech. This would provide a spare pilot AND mechanic, all in one. Plus, it would possibly provide some comic relief, and some extra functionality on missions we didn't have before. Of course, if we do that, I'd personally like to fit the droid with a vocabulator and some language programs so we can understand it without translation. It'd just make our jobs a whole lot easier, ne'c'est-pas?

2. Our ship could be fitted with a beckon call, allowing us to summon the ship remotely. That way, if the astromech is groundside with the team, we can still get airlifted in emergencies.

3. We might even pull the same kind of stunt Boba Fett did with Slave I. We can program a number of flight maneuvers into the ship's autopilot, so we can even have air cover when we're dirtside. This would also make opponents think we have a larger force than we actually do, which sometimes makes all the difference. *We might not start off this way, but between my slicer and our experienced pilots, we ought to be able to program some pretty complex combat and non-combat sequences...*

What do y'all think?

Cool! I'll have my and Shaun's background to you ASAP! 04.gif

I like the astromech idea too.

Language Issues:

Speaking a language:

Unless a character specializes in a language or is fluent, a character's ability to speak multiple languages is reflected on how high or low a Language dice score is. Some languages are very easy to speak and understand, some are easy, and some go on up to being Heroic. Most languages fall into the range of very easy to difficult. When non-fluency issues arise, the difficulties become moderate to Heroic. Still, with more than 3D in one's Language skill, speaking a language besides one's own without being fluent can most often be achieved when speaking in simple terms.

If a player wishes to attempt a language other than their own native language, Basic, or a dialect of Basic, he or she will have to request a roll. The problem with this is that once a player has requested a roll, he or she is speaking already. If one makes it or barely makes it, he or she will sound natural, or they will sound awkward. If he or she fails, then that person will butcher the language. Please recognize outcomes before asking to roll. smile.gif

No one asked about or wished to specialize in a language during character creation, but no one need worry. Ways of becoming fluent in game is actually pretty easy. I do count the language attempts, and I may have already deemed that your character is close to if not fluent in a language already even without specializing.

Jedi Skyler, Orgaloth, and Jamfke...your characters are likely to be close in being fluent even though there were no specializations declared for Huttese simply because of your dealings with them in the past. Note: If players don't declare specializations, I don't assume or grant them specializations or fluency in a language automatically despite their backgrounds.

Understanding a language:

Wookiees can understand Basic, though they cannot speak it. If someone is speaking in a different tongue, and if one wishes to understand what they are saying, one has to roll unless one is fluent in that language.

If an NPC is speaking in another language not native to your character, I will roll for your character automatically and incorporate the meanings into the narration or give the individuals who understand direct translations by some means.

This may involve the honor system, and I think we all can handle that. smile.gif
