Bits of the EU I have been known to accept happen to include the Corporate Sector Authority from the Han Solo novels by Brian Daley. I was reminded of this when I looked up Trianii (and found that, yes, they *are* cat people - snerk). Haven't read those books in 25+ years, but I have used the Corporate Sector in a couple of games.
So if interest exists, let's get specific. Should I put this in a new topic and link to it to more potential exposure?
My previous ideas were meant as suggestions and examples. Hearing no others I'll put them forth as solid offers: Do we want to play in one of two worlds I've outlined?
1) After RotJ: Pros include a free setting. The history is written, let's get on with writing the future. No real Cons. Can't be a Jedi unless we place the setting a while later, to allow time for new Jedi to be trained. Jedi-like traditions from beyond the outer rim might be possible. That actual story idea is open to revision. Honestly, in this setting, I can easily see me furnishing a few paragraphs to set the thing up and then letting you guys loose to decide where the heck you'll take it.
2) Leia Skywalker/Luke Organa: Pros include (for some) the fun of exploring the familiar story with a new twist. How has this simple change affected the galaxy? How is the story different? Did they grow up the same? Does Leia chafe at being asked to stay on the farm for just one more season? Did she and Biggs become an item? Is Luke a diplomat? A Young Senator? Or is he still Luke, only better dressed, uncomfortable with the role he's expected to play, loving nothing more than flying his hopper through the ofrests of Alderaan? Hell, is he even part of the rebellion? These are the things those who step into these roles would determine.
Cons include (again, for some) the fact that you're pretty much slotted into one of a few roles, those of movie characters, and the story is largely the same, barring any changes made. And again, no Jedi. Well...one, but he's *old.*
Serena: Your concept wouldn't really fit into #2. But it could in #1.
The biggest con with both ideas is the lack of Jedi. If we want Jedi we need a different setting. I'm open to suggestions for an Old Republic game in that case.
Adult Content: As Rydia has asked, I should address this specifically. I have no problem with adult content. But I need to know how far players expect to take things. And... weird as it may sound, my own limits would depend on the setting we choose. I'd have fewer limits if we used an option that didn't use established characters. Not keen to see Leia assaulted by Jabba the Hutt, I guess.
