Bleh. Speaking of Stormtroopers, them being such a joke has always been one of my pet peeves. They're supposed to be the elite fighting force of a galactic empire. What most players should be facing off against should be Imperial Army troopers and even then that should be worrying.

To use a semi-real-world analogy, if the PCs are smugglers and rebels (drug runners and terrorists), fighting the Imperial Army should hold the same appeal as fighting the US Army, and getting the attention of the Stormtrooper Corps should inspire the same dread as earning the ire of Team Rainbow. Engaging the elite of the Stormtrooper Corps should be as doomed an effort as going up against the Space Marines with an AK-47.

Defeating Stormtroopers should be an accomplishment, not a given.

sighs

Alright, rant over.

It would have been a real short trip, were that the case.

EDIT

You might also want to consider that in WWII there was a roughly 20k rounds/casualty ratio. It's a lot harder to aim at someone when they're shooting back.

Umm... your Rodian has a DLT-20 rifle? Or is that a 20a? I'd upgrade to a T-21 or something in between if you can't afford the 21 lol

Honestly when I played Edge, he had a 'slug rifle' so it wasn't even that he had a blaster. Just your basic modern-day sniper rifle... Gotta get your credits before you can afford a blaster, kid! ^^

I just saw that Rodian had a rifle, so I thought, yep looks okay to me. :)

And so astrogator and co-pilot it is for him! Sheet should be in tomorrow, tonight sucked IRL for me so taking a chill sleep now. *nods*

Use an E-11. Theres a lot of them because every dead ST has one.  ;D
My Squib is gonna use a stun baton and a hold out blaster because stun batons are quiet and a hold out blaster is tiny

The E-11 was designed for crowd control not accuracy, the whole rule through fear thing. If you take five shots and wound 4 people that's more terrifying than taking 5 and obliterating one.

Sorosuub's Stormtrooper 1 is designed for accuracy though.

I'm gonna pack a D-18 personally.

Name: Krytanne ‘Tannie’ Lister
Gender: Female
Species: Lorrdian (near human)
Age: 28 standard years
Crew Position: Negotiable

Personality: Friendly, loyal and helpful to a fault, ‘Tannie’ is a sarcastic and sometimes cynical young woman whose inquisitive nature will get the best of her at times.

Background:
Krytanne was born on the planet Praesitlyn where her parents were on an extended stop with a their touring opera company. As soon as they were able to her parents returned her to Lorrd where she was raised by her extended family and learned the Lorrdian kinetic language that had been developed during the Kanz disorders, and further enhanced her natural mimic talents.

Her natural wanderlust and desire for adventure eventually led Tannie to The Academy, and after graduating with honors she was immediately recruited into the Republic Scout Corps. After a few years of ‘scutting’ for the more experienced scouts and doing their dirty work she was finally assigned her own ship. She was in heaven, it was just her and the stars and the planets she found. She loved the independence and adventure, and finding new races of people.

Then came the Galactic Empire and her world changed. It wasn't long before she saw the dark underbelly of the Empire’s scouting practices and how they enslaved every new sentient race they found and sucked their planets dry of usable resources. The first chance she got she sent her beloved little Sienar Lone Scout-A on a course into a dark nebula before hopping into the life pod...

Mmm, I did always enjoy the DL-18 blaster from a design standpoint- it looks like it's got some heft to it without being too bulky, like the DH-17. I've always had a soft spot for the Bryar pistol, since its really just a sawed-off blaster rifle, silly though that may be.

Dunn likely keeps a sporting blaster rifle in the cockpit- he's always found it easier to explain away owning a hunting weapon over trying to explain the wacky series of events that led to his possession of an Imperial-marked RT-97C heavy blaster rifle... He tends to prefer to avoid combat overall, but he does keep a CDEF pistol that he nicked from a CorSec guard tucked away in a boot holster.

I'll be updating the main post to reflect accepted characters and then I'll consider how much longer we should wait before beginning.

We'll be filing this away under Bondage at most, since no one seems to be inclined towards NC, and I believe I've settled on a setting in the range of 16-11 BBY. If anyone has questions as well, feel free to PM me while we wait.

How can I resist? :)

I'm considering dropping interest now though in all seriousness. I had a rough night last night, I'm at 45% anxiety and tipping around 60% depressed. I'm probs not gonna have the inclination for making up that character sheet any time soon now.

Sorry to hear it wander- I hope you feel okay soon, even if you retract interest.

For wander and everyone else, I'll say in advance that while I know I and some of the other players might be in a little too deep in our knowledge of Star Wars minutia, the plot overall isn't going to focus much on that sort of thing, those are really just juicy little tidbits to toss around. Beyond that, if I ever reference something that I'm not sure is 'common parlance,' so to speak, I'll link to the Wookiepedia entry as well.

Name: Kataria Vand
Gender: Female
Species: Human
Crew Position: Gunner; general muscle and hand
Personality: Tough, self-reliant and no-nonsense. Not cold or remote, however; enjoys herself and likes having a good time and the like, but at the same time knows when to buckle down, shut up and do her job. Intense dislike for all things Mandalorian.
Background:
Kataria originally hails from some remote Outer Rim world that probably would have never been heard of. Unfortunately, it was on somebody's radar enough for the world to become collateral damage in the Clone Wars, fought over by two armies who otherwise would have never heard of the place. The result was a Victory for the Republic, although at the cost of severe damage to the planet's infrastructure.

With little for her there, Kataria left her battered homeworld, lying about her age to get a spot on a freighter before singing on as a hired gun to a mercenary crew. Since then she has wandered from spot to spot and crew to crew, exploring the Galaxy in her own way.

We seem to have a rather large female character population. if needed I can give Tannie a sex change to balance things out. I've written stories as a male but rarely rp'd as one, though I think I can swing it pretty well (pardon the pun lol).

I genuinely did not expect this turn of evemts; only one male application other than my own? What kind of zany bizarro world is this. This is like the opposite of every other group game I've ever experienced... What is the popular opinion of how people would like to proceed?

Its only an issue if everyone was looking for romance/sex in the rp. Im not hence why im playing a rodent. I can change my character to a male of a more ...ummm...non-furry race if youd like. I have no problem with romance/sex rping but its a nice extra not a gotta have kinda thing.

Name: Nyxus "Nyx" Ordo
Gender: Male
Species: Kiffar(Near Human)
Crew Position: Co-Pilot/First Mate
Personality: Nyx was born on Kiffu, but he was still a child when he was taken, so his attitude is decidedly Mandalorian. He's rough and tumble, always ready for a brawl to break out, and always ready to be the one to either throw the first punch, or the one to end it. As a Mandalorian, he does have a loyalty to credits. However he has a code of honor, and he will never betray someone he's given his word to, or who has purchased his contract(unless something breaks the contract or betrays his trust). He's honest, but knows how to manipulate when necessary. He's something of a ladies man when he's not focused on work.
Background: Born on Kiffu to a noble house, much was expected of Nyxus. He'd serve in the military, then go into politics. His whole life was planned out. That plan would never see fruition though, as during a trip to a negotiation summit, his families ship was attacked by Mandalorians. The initial boarding explosion killed his parents, and since he was so young, the Mando's decided to take him with them, as well as all the credits they could find. He was taken back to Mandalore, raised and inducted into Clan Ordo. He was a very fast learner, and very adept. Quickly he became a masterful warrior and made his adopted people proud.

 He even volunteered for an experimental procedure to make men faster, stronger, able to heal faster. It was a painful, and potentially fatal cybernetic surgery. He undertook it, and was one of the few to survive. But in surviving he was made even stronger. After a time though, he grew restless on Mandalore and decided to travel like many Mando do. He found well paying work as a mercenary and bounty hunter. But he got bored with that too. Then he saw an ad for a crew. Flying around the outer rim? Sounded like plenty of adventure for him. So he signed on, bringing his expertise to the Dianoga and it's Captain.

I'm fine with mostly female. I skew heavily towards yuri anyway, and I was more here for 'Star Wars RP' than 'sexy Star Wars RP' (nothing against the latter though).

Yeah, I personally am more looking to play this RP out as a fun adventure for the crew, which has the ability to be as tame or mature as it wants, not as much a flying orgy- I'd be lying if I said that I thought everyone would be 'romance material' so to speak, but on the same token, relationships of all kinds are very fun to play out. I think I'm going to go ahead and step up and add one more slot to the crew so that I can accept both Nyx and Kataria on grounds that the two most "tough" characters having a beef with each other could be a blast.

Landshark, its up to you if you want to change your species, I'm not opposed to playing with a Squib (even if I have joked that they're what happens when wookies and smurfs have a hyperspace accident). I will be closing recruitment and updating the crew roster shortly, let me know with a PM if there is anything you want to update or change, and if there's any questions you have.

Once characters have settled out I'll get a proper OOC running and we'll start shortly after.
