Gauging Interest - Star Wars Saga?
« on: July 25, 2011, 02:57:39 AM »
I've pitched this idea before... but not in a system game and not as a group game.

Players: 2-3 Jedi Padawans + one GMNPC (Female Jedi Knight in 'charge' of them all, 1 of the padawans is her own and the others know her on a personal level. Her decision to join the war effort likely influenced their own, maybe causing them to abandon their own masters.)
Setting: The Old Republic, namely the Mandalorian Wars (That's right, the characters are all patriotic and noble Revanchists, uh huh!)

Gameplay Tone: Tactical, Combat Heavy, Intense fighting interspersed with usual military life and/or the occasional non-combat mission.

RP Tone: Personal. Morality, greater good and ethical conflicts and the like. Destinies will be hidden, so nobody else will know if you intend for your character to end up being corrupted at the end of the story or not... ::) Somewhat on the gritty side, personal bonds will be important. Very close-knit group.

Sexiness Tone: Romantic between PCs/GM NPC (Possible Love Triangle/Dodecahedron...) or simple 'We're-not-in-the-jedi-order-anymore-so-let's-go-wild!' hedonism (See this and this.) with eachother or any such NPC.

...Or into slighty more non-con territory; POW rape, POW bondage, monster aliens... So on and so forth..

In short, your call.

I'm interested in this. What are the levels for the characters. Any rules in character creation?

Nothing made up at the moment, no.

But i have to go to bed now, and to work tommorow.  :-(

So I'll think of something in about 14 hours. :P For now just want to see if anyone is interested.

I'll check around by then. I'll think of a character concept for myself and have it ready soon.

Wow.  You certainly have my attention.  :) 

And I'd favor both of the erotic elements in one story.  :)

I'm suitably interested, even though I tend to stay away from system games.  I just find the idea of a group of militaristic Jedi running around the galaxy getting into trouble and having fun to be possibly a good deal of fun.
 
Feel free to sign me up for some of that dark POW stuff too...

I'm currently mulling over a Togruta, because angry, semi-feral padawan girl is kind of a proven way to get into trouble.

SAGA's always sounded interesting, but I'd never managed to find an active game and never really learned it, so I'll wave a flag of interest at this. If it's first-come-first serve, I think I've counted too many applicants already, but hope springs eternal.

Not first come, first serve. Merely whoever looks like they will fit in with the other characters the best.

I'm normally not a big fan of rolling for ability scores, but I like how random they can be... so CharGen is as follows;

Ability Scores: 3d6
Roll this 9 times, taking the best 6.
HP: Rolled.

Level 5.

Also, new feat;

Combat Training [Jedi Bonus Feat]
Prior to actual combat, you have opted to train concurrently with Republic cadets, learning the organization and structure of the Republic military and a gaining a cursory knowledge of basic soldiering and the daily lives of the men and women who will soon be your subordinates.
Requirements: Jedi
Benefit: You are automatically proficient with Light Armor and Pistols (to include rifles with retracted stocks)

And subsequently;

You have free access to almost every single weapon, armor, or gear available to the Republic. They will outfit you completely free of cost. This includes upgrades and the services of a Tech Specialist. Specifically templated items cannot be procured, nor can vehicles or ships be freely given.

Jedi volunteers are commonly offered the same gear as the Republic's special forces, usually light power armor and commando special rifles. This helps them blend in with the average grunt and offers them added protection. As such, Jedi Knights accustomed to years of war have made good use of the Armor Specialist talents offered to them.

While on the battlefield, you can generally be assured that your fellow republic soldiers have access to plenty of spare power packs, grenades, and heavy weapons. Occasionally you'll have access to vehicles too. (That being said, the individual mandalorian's gear is vastly superior and personalized)

Edit: If you can find it in a book, you can use it. And if it isn't there, feel free to run a homebrew by me.

I'll roll up the character, but I have a question. That feat you made up. Does it give access to the armor talent tree form the soldier class?

No. You'd either need to take a dip into that class or gain access through the Jedi Knight class (which many people tend to forget has access to that talent tree as well. ;-))

What races are appropriate to pick from? The Saga KOTOR book is apparently pre-Mandalorian Wars, and the Old Republic MMO appears to be post-MW.

 And classes, for that matter - your brief says all players are padawans (which would imply all of us are of the Jedi class), but then you mentioned a dip into the Soldier class; unless Padawans aren't trained from a very young age in TOR era, when would we have time to take a dip in Soldier before/after/during padawan training?

If we're allowed non-Jedi classes, I had originally liked the idea of a Chiss Scoundrel...if I matched the timelines on Wookiepedia up right, they're not openly announced to the galaxy at large for another few hundred years, but Chiss weapons start appearing in black markets less than ten years after the end of the Wars (and so presumably actual Chiss are wandering around somewhere).

Failing that, a Miraluka jedi of some kind looks like it'd be fun to play. Probably a ranged-combat specialist in preference to melee lightsaber combat, though honestly I have no idea how to build a Jedi shooty character (or any other character in SAGA, really).

Agreed, I think I'm going to drop my interest unless for whatever reason it turns into a freeform.  PLEASE message me if that happens.

I could be interested in this, but I'll make it clear as tentative interest for now. I'll see how things form up for now.

No. You'd either need to take a dip into that class or gain access through the Jedi Knight class (which many people tend to forget has access to that talent tree as well. ;-))

As a note, unless the Jedi Knight prestige class has been changed on an official level, it does not have access to ANY armor proficiency talents. No force user does, actually (if the change is official and on one of those websites, then disregard my statement). They all get defense bonuses as part of their class feature. The Jedi of the Saga book (original) are assumed to be Jedi of the last 1000 years to pre Order 66. That means they shunned the use of armor and none Lightsaber weaponry. The galactic public began to see the Jedi are having to much control and possibly becoming a threat because they had ruled as Chancellors for so long and fought almost just like regular soldiers. That got the Jedi Order to change into a more peaceful acting and looking organization that was less involved in military actions.

Basically, the only way a Jedi will get access to any armor/weapon talents as part of the class is through the GM making custom changes. I would assume they can grab feats outside of the class, but that just wastes feats that could be geared more towards lightsaber combat or force powers (which is what the class is all about in the first place).

Or by multiclassing, I'd assume?

Never mind, I misread.

  Um...  Xanatos, Jedi Knight in the core book clearly states it has access to the Armor Specialist talent tree. 

My attribute rolls: 

16, 14, 13, 13, 11, 10, 10, 9, 8

Leaving:

Jedi Knight seems a bit out-of-range for a game based around a group of Padawan. Just saying. ;D

We don't qualify anyways now, it requires BAB+7. I assume the GM mentioned it for future PrCing potential.

My stats:

9 , 9 , 10 , 14, 11 , 11 , 13 , 11 , 13

14,13,13,11,11,11. How.....mediocre.

Always a fan of adult system games if there is room.  I would be interested in playing as padawan or other.  I have two ideas for a padawan, the first being a consular-type with limited physical abilities and the second being a weak-in-the-force type who makes up for that weakness with other strengths.

I notice that only ONE of the PCs will be the padawan of the GMNPC. This implicitly suggests that the other padawans have abandoned their masters. Kind of a big deal!

Would it be possible to use abandonment as an excuse for a level in a multi-class? I was considering having my sulky Revanchist padawan go stalking off to DO SOMETHING when the Jedi Council adopted a policy of non-involvement, and thus pick up a rank in Scoundrel before joining up with the GMNPC.

Here is my character. Name Rico Aldun. Human Jedi that had taken training in the Republic army as a test to see how Jedi would appreciate the military perspective.  He's also a natural pilot. He's capable of using both a lightsaber and pistol in tandem.

I don't what the credits your giving us at this moment, but I threw in everything that I would believe that would be given to a soldier being sent out to war that I see in my book. I'm sure there is always more equipment. I remember taking 3 bags of gear with me to Iraq..and I was not a front-line soldier.
