May The Fourth Be With You!
Hello! So we had this idea...
It's a Star Wars RP, set approximately 5 years after Order 66 is given. The Jedi are now an endangered species, and it's well known that any that try to help them are hunted down and exterminated by the newly formed Galactic Empire.
Our story would focus on a single ship, smugglers/pirates. They have no real love for the Empire, or the new laws its put into place. The crew would be 4-6 people (never more, never less), and it could be a rotating crew. Like.. if someone loses interest, we just say they decided to take another job. And then we have to hire someone else (recruit someone else into the RP). We would also want a balance between males and females. Now you can play anything, you can have any role on this ship. It's a ship just a tad bigger than the Millenium Falcon. Positions probably wouldn't go terribly further than engineer/mechanic, co-pilot, second in command. The only positions that are taken is the Captain and the Jedi.
Oh yeah, the Jedi.
Well part of this story will be how a Jedi is hiding amongst this little crew. She'll want to blend in, keep her status a secret. She just wants to be a member of the crew. And of course having a Jedi on board will bring about problems. What if the Empire finds out and suddenly the little band becomes public enemies number 1? What if one of the crew decides to turn in the Jedi for a nice bounty? What if some of them don't trust the Jedi, since by now the smear campaign against them would be in full swing and all.
But please, don't think this is all about the Jedi. Far from it. I want the Jedi character to be just a member of the crew. Not the star of the RP, by any means. The stars will be the whole crew. I just think playing a Jedi in this setting sounds fun. And also.. there should be just one Jedi on the crew. To make sure it stays interesting.
Now we were throwing around ideas for the crew.. a reformed Clone Commando came to mind, maybe he quit after Order 66. Any number of aliens. I mean see what you can come up with. In my own lil head, I see this as more of a Star Wars/Firefly thing. That sort of comradry/familial setting.
Please keep in mind this is JUST an interest check. We want to see who we get to respond. Also keep in mind we really want this to be long term, so we want a commitment. We want this to be an ongoing story. I mean it's set in the Star Wars universe, there's millions of things to do! And please.. don't take offense to this.. but we will be picky about who we have in the RP. Once you would, for example, fill out a CS, we would look it over and look at your history. Again, we're gonna be a bit picky with this. We love this idea, and it needs to happen a certain way for us. If you're a good story teller that's reliable.. hell you can probably be in!
So, does this pique your interest at all?The Application!
