Rim Runners (Star Wars, Freeform)
« on: July 05, 2015, 08:25:20 PM »
Title is courtesy NoWhereWoman, who helped me develop this idea.

This RPG will be set during the general era of the original trilogy and will focus on a group of fringers operating a ship in the relatively lawless regions of the outer rim.  Think something along the lines of Firefly, but more Star Wars-y.  :P  I haven't decided on the name of the ship yet, and it's size and configuration are also to be determined.  If I only get a tiny group I might go with a small courier, while it it's a larger group I might go with an armored transport or something.

So far I've got two Work In Progress characters for this RPG.  My character is a talented but overconfident young pilot who is something of a flirt.  NoWhereWoman's character is a twi'lek and former gladiatorial slave who is strongly loyal to him for freeing her (think a bit like Chewbacca, except she seems far less threatening :P).

I don't know if my character will be the ship's captain.  As I noted earlier, he's young.  If someone makes a character who is a bit older I might let them take on the Captain role and have my character act as a pilot.

BTW, I would love to have a cute wrench wench type as part of the ship's crew.  ;)

So anyway, who's interested?

Edit: Here is the character template.  Please note that I do not require lengthy profiles -a few lines in each category should be sufficient.

Interested in playing either the captain or the "wrench wench" as Daril put it. Maybe a gearhead zabrak fringer for the mechanic with a loyal droid sidekick. For the captain I figured a treasure hunter perhaps? Plenty of opportunities to look for goodies on the outer rim, then try to find a buyer while avoiding imperial entanglements? :p

@Muse -I was planning on doing this freeform.  Sorry, I should have specified that.

@FragarchZ -I can see the ship's crew getting involved in a treasure hunt if they had something they considered credible to go on.  But I don't think it would be their main business.

Shoot, left town for the weekend and it moved from an idea thread to a recruitment thread.

I am back now, and definitely still interested. Probably either as a mechanic or an unlucky gunner type who's ship was captured by the pirates as well.

How about a young orphan girl from Nar Shaddaa who just hit 18 and wants to prove herself as strong and capable, quite good with weapons and strong, yet still somewhat immature socially?

She could serve as ship security.

See, I can't run a character if I don't have at least some sort of baseline imagery.


I may have to  resort to drawings or 3d art, though- the only real good Twi' cosplay I've found is of Darth Talon, and that's not a very good fit :D

Hmm. I really like this one:


Meet Tana Lione



Maybe that for slightly casual and this:



For combat. Aboard ship, she likely goes bare or mostly so most of the time.

For now let's do the character profiles here.  But I'd appreciate it if people let me put my character up as a sample first.  I've got some time so I should be able to get at least a rough profile for the character up today.

Re: Rim Runners (Star Wars, Freeform)

Still a bit of a Work in Progress, but here's the profile for my character.  Please see the first post in this thread for the new profile template.

Name: Kaden Chandler
Age: 25
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Appearance: Kaden is relatively short at 1.65 meters in height and has a moderate build.  (I still need to determine his exact appearance.)  Unless circumstances absolutely require him not to wear it, he is usually seen sporting a red leather jacket with the image of a predatory bird on the back.  The jacket is a relic from his speeder bike racing days, and he considers it lucky.
History: Kaden grew up near a spaceport on a backwater colony world.  During his youth he often participated in local speeder bike races, where he demonstrated the first signs of his exceptional piloting skills.  Despite -or perhaps because of- his considerable success in local races, Kaden soon set his sights off world and signed up as a crewmember aboard the tramp freighter Wandering Sun.  While his job aboard the freighter did not pay very well, it did teach him a lot about operating spacecraft.  Later on, Kaden's sense of adventure would lead him to take up the cause of the Rebel Alliance, where he served as a fighter pilot.  While he soon achieved ace status, the low pay, poor living conditions, and most importantly the extreme danger of flying fighters for the Alliance eventually led Kaden to leave the organization and go back to being a spacer.  Despite this, he still maintains several Alliance contacts, as well as some of the Alliance's spirit of justice.  It was this spirit of justice that led him to help free a twi'lek slave called ____.
(I'm not quite sure what to put next here.  I'm thinking that perhaps another of the other characters could be an old friend of Kaden's who invited him to be part of his new operation (or maybe even be a co-owner.)
Personality: Kaden is an individual with a strong sense of adventure that can make him restless.  While something of a mercenary, he still has some of the sense of justice that led him to fly for the Alliance.  He is extremely confident -one could even say cocky- about his flying skills.  In fact, he is a bit on the cocky side in general.
Skills and Abilities: Kaden is an exceptional pilot as well as a decent mechanic.  He knows how to fly both speeders and spacecraft, and is particularly adept at piloting high performances models of both.  He is decent with a blaster at range, but isn't as good at quick draw scenarions.  At close range, he relies heavily on rapid fire.  His hand to hand skills do not go much beyond throwing punches.

Name: Tara Malinda

Age: 18

Species: Human

Gender: Female

Appearance: Tara is petite and looks younger than she is. She has tanned skin, an athletic body and usually wears long pants with a grey tank top.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide


History: Tara was born on Nar Shaddaa, slave from one of the smaller Hutt clans. When she was just 14, she and other slaves were instrumental in breaking out from their pens and killing their guards, leading to the downfall of this Hutt. Tara fled the moon and vowed never to be kept as a slave again. She trained hard to defend herself and kept away from known Hutt and bounty hunter regions, traveling around the Outer Rim, selling her services. Despite her small stature and age, her skills made her perfect for working in security.

Personality: Tara is mistrustful, mostly because of her past. She always tries to prove her worth and so will often come on strongly towards others. But once you get to know her, she is a sweet kid, who likes to laugh and have fun.

Skills and Abilities: Tara has always had to look out for herself and thus quickly learned how to take care of herself. She is very good at hand to hand combat, using melee weapons and small arms. She always has her blaster pistol on her belt, various ammo and grenade types, along with a customized blaster rifle on her back. Unfortunately her training left her little time for much else, including any sort of piloting skills, or much experience being social with others...

If somebody else is interested in playing a mechanic, I can change this character to something else. Maybe a medic or something. Just let me know.  :-)

Name: Nory
Age: 22
Species: Near-Human
Gender: Female
Appearance: Slender, with white skin and dark gray hair. Nory has lavender-colored eyes, and stands about 5'6". Her hair is almost shoulder length, and she keeps it pulled together in front of each of her pointed ears.

She dresses in light-blue tunics, with tan leggings and dark-brown boots. She carries a blaster pistol, and is proficient with it, but isn't particularly skilled.
Picture

History: Nory is formerly of Taris, working in a pretty quiet mechanic's shop. Most of the shop's business was repairing swoops for racers, but they did handle other things on occasion. It was clear that the shop was never going to be more successful than it currently was, and she wasn't likely to be in the running to take it over when the owner retired or died, either.

Deciding that this life was not what she was interested in, she saved up what she could, got herself a ride to the nearest spaceport, and barely managed to get herself hired on as a mechanic on a small, rundown freighter. The captain, who she initially found charming, shortly revealed himself to be a drunk, and almost unbelievably terrible at business. The only reason he still had a ship was his inheritance from a wealthy relative, that he had already almost completely squandered.

Seeing where this was going, she jumped ship at her next opportunity, leaving her looking for work once again. At least this time she had actual experience working on starships.
Personality: Fairly quiet but friendly, Nory is mainly interested in various mechanical devices. She's curious, especially about the inner-workings of machines, and is generally slow and cautious. She prefers to plan things out, and make sure she has what she needs before she gets started.
Skills and Abilities: Nory is skilled with working on mechanical items, anything from a blaster pistol to a starship, but she's especially skilled at working on swoop bikes. Her starship skills are getting better and better, though. She can use a blaster pistol, but isn't particularly skilled with it. She is surprisingly good at using one of the heavy hydrospanners she carries as a melee weapon. She also has an uncanny sense of timing, generally knowing what time it is, and seldom, if ever, needs a timer for countdowns or checking intervals.

Looking through some species now. I'd like to play someone on the bridge if possible, like a Wash-styled pilot or an astrogator. Not Captain though. Failing that, a Gunner or something like that would be fine.

I was thinking Human or maybe a Chiss (because blue elves are cool since Nightcrawler ^^) or Mirialan (because green elves with tribal tattoos are also cool!).

Though if there's interest I could something more furry, like a Selonian. Rocket Raccoon is a fave of mine, though I don't want to put the ladies off making a move on my guy too. ;)

I could play a Nautolan too, if anyone's interested. I'm basically looking for people's opinions on these races and which one they feel more attractive.

Personally, I have some weird hate-on for Nautolans. I don't know why, but I really dislike them. I'm also not a big fan of furry characters, but I don't know where others lie on that spectrum.

I'm also actually a man, so if you weren't concerned about my opinion on that, then no worries about it.  :-)

Name: Tanja Lionee

Age: Uncertain; 20-22

Species:Twi'lek

Gender:F

Appearance: Average height, limited skin markings on lek' only; Slender and very toned. Old whip scars clearly visible on back, butt, and backs of thighs

History: Born a slave on a small independent asteroid mining station, Tanja's time was split between physical labor and 'entertaining' the miners, which built up both her physical strength and flexibility and a stoic acceptance of whatever happens to her.  The first time she went into a fighting ring, she was intended to be a sacrifice, to teach her a lesson for mouthing off to a client; when her speed and angry savagery actually allowed her to win the bare-knuckles match against the complaining miner, her owner realized she was far too valuable to be dong dishes and hauling trash (though not too valuable to spend a lot of her time on her back), and had her trained as a rough-and-tumble pit fighter. It was quite a draw- men paid good prices to watch her beat the living hell out of their co-workers, before taking her to bed themselves. It made them feel tougher, somehow, and who can put a price on that?

Tanj' was 'won' in a game of sabbac by a young mercenary pilot named Kaden Chandler- technically,  it was her company for the duration of his stay that was on the table, but as they say, possession is 9/10 of the law, and a good blaster is the other 10%. However the story actually played out- neither of their versions agree in detail, and they enjoy playing the tale up for an audience-  when Kaden left, Tanj' left with him, and they've been inseparable since.

Personality:  Tanja doesn't talk much, and when she does, it's soft and with a certain eyes-down affect she had beaten into her as a slave.  Don't let it fool you- she's pretty strong-willed, had to be to survive. She just finds it easier to be quiet, and convenient to have people think she's just a playfemme, though she's quite capable of raising blisters with her tongue if you really annoy her.

Off-ship, she still often dresses the part of a brainless slave girl, playing eye and arm candy to distract the rubes. Aboard, she'll wear whatever makes the most sense for what she's doing, from armor to nothing at all.  There's no body-shyness there- after her life, how could there be?

Tanj' doesn't trust men very much, besides Kaden, to whom she's quietly, fanatically loyal; she's not overly fond of humans in general, and Hutts and those working for them she hates with a passion that can get her in trouble at times.

Skills and Abilities: While she's a decent pistol shot, Tanj's strengths lie in her agility and her hand-to-hand skills. If she's wearing anything at all, she will have some sort of small weapon on hand, be it vibroblade, neural whip, or stun baton, all of which she's quite competent with; even bare, she can deliver rapid, punishing blows with her long, muscular legs and work-hardened hands. She's always up to spar, and constantly on the lookout for new trainers; she seems fixated on becoming the most efficient unarmed killing machine she can.

Not very technically inclined, the Twi's response to security systems is to avoid them, stepping lightly and dancing past sensors and trip plate until she get get close enough to break some necks.

Well, I don't know where my guy would gravitate to, all the ladies here are really cute/hot... I wouldn't mind writing a scene with my dude and Nory, though it depends whether you're cool with that too... ^^

Anyway, it's not all about the smex, looking at the cast so far with the sheets that are in, we have;

Daril and Nowherewoman as: Kaden the pilot and Tanja, his own female Chewie type (Though a Twi'lek)
elfguy as Tara, who's a weapon expert
Kirbysfolly as Nory, who's the mechanic.

So... I'll look about, though I'm considering Astrogator, maybe the Face of the group too? Like someone who can carouse and do some hacking to get the ship and crew to places so they can get a better profit? Ship's Gunner is another role, in case we get into ship v ship action. I'm really considering like a console jockey type character, basically. Not a mechanic person, someone who is gifted in using the tech, not fixing it. A Decker, but for Star Wars. ^^;

I like stealthy characters too, so maybe someone scouty and a knife user when it comes to combat?

I'm gonna research more on the races and see what might be fitting, hopefully the others may have some opinions on what they'd like too. I don't want to pick a race that will ostracize my character, though I think human is a bit vanilla...

Potential Face-claims;

Chiss;


Mirialan;


Human;

@Wander -I would go for the Mirian over the Chiss given the time period.  You said you don't want to be Captain -would that apply even if your character got to be very hands on with operating the ship?  Maybe even flying it some of the time?  (I figure more than one person should know how to fly the ship.  Especially if it carries any small speeders/shuttlepods that Kaden may end up being called on to pilot.)

@NoWhereWoman -Weren't you planning for your character to be a former pit fighter or something along those lines?  Mainly bringing it up because I'm wondering where she learned to fight if that part of her background has been cut.

@KirbysFolly -The one thing I'm wondering about here is whether the gang background is a good idea.  You list her as quiet but friendly -if she was formerly involved in extortion and such wouldn't she be more hardened?

@Elfguy -That picture doesn't really look like a Star Wars character to me.  She also seems a bit on the young side.  While I can see the ship's crew having one "enforcer" type on hand to ward off trouble I think they'd look for someone who gave an impression of considerable experience.

Sorry, I should have been more on the ball with replying.  Hopefully I haven't bitten off more than I can chew with trying to GM both this and another RPG idea I'd suggested a while back that finally seems like it might be about to take off...  :D

Mmm, good point. I'll switch it out. I figured she was less involved in that type of thing, but it does seem a bit of a poor fit.

Wander- I like the Mirialan the most myself. I just looked up the Selonians though, and I have to say they weren't what I was expecting. I wouldn't mind having one on the crew, if that was what you were interested in instead. (Also, totally not in charge of what gets approved, so yeah.  ;D)

Okay, well it looks like I'll either go with the Mirialan or a human. I agree that the Chiss are pretty linked in with Thrawn and tbh, I think I'd prefer to play a Mirialan due to their culture with their face and hand tattoos. The Chiss seem too haughty for me and as for Selonians...

I liked the look of them, I thought they looked pretty fun, though in reading about them on wookieepedia, they see lying as bad as murder, so having one thats a rim runner, it'd be... not so likely and perhaps a little too tough for me to RP. A character to consider for a future game not so themed after Firefly though.

Okay, Daril...
I could play the owner of the ship, though I struggle to play someone with the authority and experience to be a Captain. I find it easier playing rogues, like Han or Starlord and characters like Wash. I'm spreading out in what characters I write for though... However I'm not sure I'd have the rp chops to do Captain and I'm fairly sure someone will RP with more authority than I'll place in a character. That said, in so much as the person that owns the ship, I can do that.
I have played a Captain who was in name only, due to owning the ship and the real Captaining was done by an enforcer who was upgraded to First Mate to do all the ordering around and making sure things were going according to plan. This left my guy as a charismatic rogue who did things about the ship of which he knew (mainly flying it)... Btw, yes... I'd love to play a pilot! whilst he left things in the other departments with those who were better skilled in their sections. With a small crew, I think there is less need for a Captain, long as everyone keeps to their stations and knows what they're doing, though I suppose someone should be about that won't do a Jayne and bully everyone else and take over the ship.

I suppose I could do a more relaxed Mal if needed. I really do want to play someone adept on the ship consoles, either way, which can include piloting, navigation, gunner, sensor, comms... Whatever is needed that noone else wants a crack at, really.

We could also wait and see if someone else volunteers for the Captain role.  Do any of the current players want to modify their character for the role?

If we do go with your character as Captain, perhaps he could be an old friend of Kaden's who invited him to join in a venture.  Actually perhaps multiple characters have a stake in the business.  Someone would obviously have to take charge when the situation calls for it but ultimately they'd be a group of business partners.

So you're talking a character with really good instincts, basically?

There should be room for one more character.

@NoWhereWoman -Weren't you planning for your character to be a former pit fighter or something along those lines?  Mainly bringing it up because I'm wondering where she learned to fight if that part of her background has been cut.



I was, but it didn't seem to make sense as far as Kaden getting hold of her, then- a trained gladiator slave would be way out of his price range, though I suppose they could still have just run off together.


I was thinking more that work and dance had strengthened her quite a bit- rough-and-tumble stuff mostly- and she's picked up more as she and K have travelled together. think of her more as  a brawler than a seriously trained martial artist- fast and tough adn ANGRY enough to be crazy in a scrap.

@Elfguy -That picture doesn't really look like a Star Wars character to me.  She also seems a bit on the young side.  While I can see the ship's crew having one "enforcer" type on hand to ward off trouble I think they'd look for someone who gave an impression of considerable experience.


Well it's hard to find a Star Wars picture that doesn't show a Jedi.

That's what our group is right? A crew of rogues making their lives in the untamed outer rim.

Someone trained and well versed in combat, survival and leadership like a Mandalorian. In this case a Mandalorian who left his regiment, disgusted with the way they sold out to work for the republic, and decided to find a life beyond the emperor's reach.

Only if you still weren't sure that you wanted your character to be captain. Otherwise I do think he would still make a good heavy gunner.

Would a Mandalorian want to work on a smuggling/odds jobs ship?  I'm not an expert on Mandalorians -there's a lot of EU material I haven't read- but aren't they proud warrior race guys?

Also, anyone got any thoughts on the type of ship we should go with?  I'm cool with going with something non canon.  Was thinking of an "armored transport" but perhaps we should go with something that has less obvious combat capabilities.  Granted being obvious can discourage possible attackers, but it also has its cons.

I can have a look at ships on the Wookieepedia and get an opinion back here either later or tomorrow... I'm pretty free tomorrow so I should be on more.

That said, looks like I should get a bio up too. I guess I'm gonna go with the Mirialan and looking at the pic, I'm going to find a better scouty looking pic, I love the costume of the face-claim potential I put up, but I'm gonna go for a more knifey user for combat and otherwise more of a bridge bunny guy in skills.

Fair question, the last time the Mandalorians would be considered a solid group was around the time of the Mandalorian Wars, when Mandalor brought them together to attack the republic in order to take over the galaxy.

When they lost the Mandalorians were scattered across the galaxy and very few actually remained in militanistic groups. Most took whatever work they could get using their skills to their fullest. The most famous of whom (Jango Fett) became a lone merc/bounty hunter and eventually the DNA base of all the clone troopers. But a lot of them just went on to be hired thugs for various crime bosses like the Hutts.  So yes, this is exactly the kind of work a Mandalorian would go for.

My character in particular would have been one of the few that attempted to keep a military regiment together. But when all of his brothers chose to join the republic for money he chose to turn his back on them and make his way to the outer rim.

@BlueEyedBard -So basically, you'd be playing the Jayne of the group?  :P (Hopefully you've seen Firefly.)

Would probably depend on the Captain's feelings toward your character.  I'm not sure Kaden would like him, but I sort of want to avoid making Kaden the ship's Captain anyway.

@Phaia -Unfortunately I think we've got both those roles covered at this point.  Then again, having an additional character with those sorts of skills could be useful.  I suppose it may depend how big the ship and its overall crew end up being.  (Though I'm a touch reluctant to make the group too big since the chance of a player becoming unavailable tends to increase with group size.)

@Wander -We can go fanon if there aren't any appropriate canon vessels.  Actually maybe we should put the question of the ship's size and capabilities on hold until we have a clearer idea of how big the crew is going to be.

Okay, so looking at starships presently. We don't need a capitol ship, they're for more bigger ventures, calling from my Traveller experience. In playing that game I was only ever involved in one game that my character was placed on one, which was a huge naval vessel, essentially pretty much a Star Destroyer, so we're going to look at smaller things here.

We could do a Light Freighter, which could double as a scout vessel and also a Transport, as in exploration being a thing with free trade in cargo and passengers. Running the rim, it may be good to scout new potential clients and systems and do some free trade when we aren't acting on a patron? What do you think, Daril? Anyone else?

Name: Rez
Age: 22
Species: Mirialan
Gender: Male
Appearance:


History: Born around the outset of the Clone Wars with the name 'Tesq', the one would become Rez was initially raised as a Seperatist on the planet Mirial and was a mere toddler when the war came to an end and the Jedi were purged leading the way into the Empire. For Tesq, the Empire's rule as far as he saw on the Outer Rim was all he knew. Thus disenfranchisement soon took in with the young alien as he reached his teens. He partook in a hobby of swoopracing and was soon discovered by Black Sun around the time that Xizor took control of the organisation (in 6 BBY), taking the boy in for technical expertise (which soon expanded to starships in this time) and skill in scouting areas. Tesq soon learned in these years to keep his faithful hunting knife handy for self-defence.

It was after a few years of working under Xizor on the Rim that Tesq left Black Sun through faking his death, when caught in the conflict Black Sun aligned themselves with when the two Hutt clans of Besadii and Desilijic went against each other. The Desilijic eventually becoming the dominant Hutt clan and with their help and the new name Rez, the young Mirialan was free to live a new life of his own. Having cheated Black Sun out of a small amount of resources to set up a new independant life for himself in the Rim, Rez hires himself out as a pilot and general console jockey and is known to come onboard ships that will hire him for not just credits but other forms of payment or just for reasons that keep his interest. He also takes the odd job as a security system bypasser (a hacker) for the odd heist. He is never known to actually fight fair in many things he is involved with.

Personality:
Rez is a charismatic Mirialan, a loveable rogue who has a great love for technical stuff, especially when dealing with starships and swoopracers, he's a real vehicle buff. He is very knowledgeable though tends to keep such things to himself, preferring others rather underestimate him so he can get the drop on someone later. Being involved in sketchy dealings for the past decade and holding no love for the Empire, Rez is a proud cheater and sees doing so as something that if able to, should be done, than anything particularly bad. However, whilst being less than honourable, he does have a special part in his heart for those who interest him enough that he feels he can trust them. Like the Desijilic Hutts, he also has a love of the form of humanoid women and can be hedonistic if the choice is presented to him.

Skills and Abilities:
Rez is an accomplished pilot and knows how to astrogate and use most consoles on a ship, including guns. He is an accomplished hacker and uses his faithful knife from when he was a young hunter back on Mirialan in combat. He is pragmatic in pretty much everything he does. Being off-world in the Rim most of his adult life and wanting to be kept underestimated, he has fewer tattoos that mark skill than many other Mirialan his age, though he has picked a few up in recent years to distance himself from his old identity.

I'm a little leery about having a force user who actually knows what they're doing in the group.

Actually I'm starting to worry about my ability to manage this particular RPG.  It's not entirely clear who's in and who's out at this point, but we could end up with a fairly large group.

Force users outside of the Jedi order aren't something special and is pretty commonplace. If you're leery to force abilities then maybe you should create a freeform sci-fi sandbox that allows star wars alien species but without the force abilities. I made the majority of her abilities defensive or medical, though :) And that's a pretty small list of abilities when it comes to typical force masters.

But I can dumb it down some, if you'd like. I have things listed that she's not a master of too, btw. :)

Knowing which abilities she's not a master of might be helpful.

The reason I was thinking there wouldn't be any particularly proficient force users was because I planned to set this in the era of the original trilogy.

Mm, to be honest Amarlo... I'd try and reword it to make her abilities more general, like everyone else has.

Also like Daril said, this is set around the original trilogy, remember in episode 4 Han didn't even believe in the Force until showed otherwise and the Jedi in so far as the canon have been knocked down to Obi Wan and Yoda, it's been 19+ years since the Great Jedi Purge and the Empire confident that they're not a threat is now centring more on taking down the Rebellion.

I'm pretty much going to play Rez as someone who knows of the Force (because of his Mirialan culture he was raised in), but sees it more as a kind of neopagan sort of religion.

@ Amarlo -What is "crucitorn"?

The group seems a bit too small to employ it's own medic, but I guess if you can manage to justify it perhaps it could work.

@Everyone -Speaking of group size, what exactly have we got so far?  It's not entirely clear to me who is still in the running here.  We seem to have Rez, a Mirilian male technical specialist (and pilot), Nora, a near-human female mechanic, Tanj, a female twi'lek former pit fighter, and Kaden, a male human pilot.  Not as sure about the status of some others that have come up.

@ Amarlo -What is "crucitorn"?

The group seems a bit too small to employ it's own medic, but I guess if you can manage to justify it perhaps it could work.

Crucitorn is the formal name to - a technique for transcending physical pain beyond normal thresholds or decreasing. Crucitorn had two possible ways (speculative possibilities) of affecting a Force-user's target. Through means of mental infiltration, a Jedi could focus on another's sensation or interpretation of pain, enhancing it to seem as if an injury was more painful than it really was or alleviate the amount of pain produced. Another possible way that Crucitorn could increase the pain of a target was to literally focus on the wounds themselves, agitating them through the Force and causing more pain to course through the body, making it much more painful than how it would feel being left alone.

She started using it to alleviate pain, but through her career she's employed it for us in torture as well by doing the opposite. That aside, she's a combat medic. Other than that, I don't think this is the type of game I'm looking for regardless, so I will be ducking out.

Have fun eveyone!

I wonder if it's too late to join in. If not, here's my character's sheet:

Name:Jhina Chugoy
Age: late 20's
Species: Mirialan
Gender: Futanari
Orientation: Futanari, shemales, effeminate males, and females

Appearance:

Aside from the picture, she's not always bare feet. Zhuna often wears ankle-length toeless black boots and matching fingerless biker-style gloves over her bandages virtually all the time. She also wears a black vest worn over her white sleeveless underboob turtleneck and a frontal lapel to cover her bulging asset leaving much of her rear exposed except for an athletic bikini thong.

History:
She was born and raised primarily as a slave on The Wheel due to her mother unable to pay off her addictive gambling debt. However Jhina became too rowdy to the point that she often picked fights not only against her masters but other slave mates as well. But it was this typical behavior that landed her career as a successful gladiatorial fighter. Yet, when she refused to play ball with those running the match, she suddenly disappeared deep into the bowels of the Wheel. There, she had to cheat, steal, and extort just to survive. Combined with her martial arts skills and having the backbone to kill, Jhina became a professional assassin and taking on contract hits.

Eventually, she would find herself off the station to forge her own path. However, with little to work for, Jhina was forced to become resourceful by trying to gain more with working with less. For years, she became a drifter throughout space until she took on the role as a freelancing bounty hunter and have wandered the galaxy ever since.

Personality:
Jhina has low people skill but ironically is able to get close to those when a covert mission requires that of her. Having fought many battles in the arena as a gladiator, she sculpted her body in a muscular but agile athletic frame. However, the toll of prolonged fights have accumulated so much battle rage that she often has a hard time trying to reel it in should she be provoked or finds herself in an extended close-quarters combat. Often, she would try to meditate to control her own fire. During off-time or when she's not in a moody behavior, Jhina often tends to be introverted keeping to herself further lending to what little light social skills she has to other people.

Skills and Abilities:
Jhina is skilled with any hand-to-hand combat weapons, even a lightsaber. Her thievery skills also makes it much useful and despite often wearing skimpy clothing, Jhina always has a way of hiding stolen goods on her body that no one even thinks to look into. As a wanderer drifter, she has basic knowledge of flying spacecraft for the purpose of getting from point A to point B.

Aside from hiding stolen objects, the Mirialan knows how to rig boobytraps to get out of sticky situations, including hiding shank weapons on herself. When it comes to the dirty business, Jhina will often try to employ tactics to make it look like her victims died of unexpected circumstances, or to make someone else take the blame for her murders. However, any evidence of her involvement is used by her to verify her objectives to her contractor when taking on such a job.

I'm also having some doubts about my ability to handle GMing this game, especially alongside another RPG idea I put forward that seems to be gaining some traction.  On the other hand, I feel I have a bit of an obligation to the people who expressed interest in this idea.

I am going to be letting KirbysFolly take over GM duties for this game since he volunteered for the role.  I'm not 100% sure yet whether I will at least be playing the character I had proposed.  I will try not to take too long making a decision on that point.

Uggh.  Okay, it looks like I totally misread the PM from KirbysFolly.  He wasn't volunteering to be the GM as he's too busy for the role.  Actually, after reviewing his PM I'm kind of wondering how the heck I got that impression.

So what do you guys think here?  Should I throw something like "seeking new GM" in the title (or perhaps make a thread in the other section about looking for a new GM)?  Or just shut things down?

Ugh, I was hoping we won't resort to shutting things down as I would've loved to use my Mirialan futa in a sexual engagement. :<

I'd say looking for new GM in the title. It'd be a shame to waste these characters.

I checked to see what I should do in this situation.  It was recommend that I put an ad for a replacement GM in the GM's corner, so that's what I have done.  We'll see if it gets a response.
