Star Wars: Return of the Jedi + Beyond
« on: June 05, 2010, 07:05:32 PM »
There's another Star Wars game going on, but that takes place far too early for my liking.  I grew up with the Special Edition of the Originals, not your shitty Clone Wars Saga or having "Annie" Skywalker as the main character.  For chrissakes, how can I take Darth seriously when my mum's name is Annie?

So I'm not exactly a genius on the whole Star Wars thing.  I'm a casual movie watcher, and that's it.  Fair enough, I've spent my fair share of time on Wookiepedia, and gotten completely lost in the vast amount of information.  This is a group for people who loved the Original Trilogy, but don't want to worry about what happened before it.

Here's the situation.  The story takes place very shortly after Return of the Jedi.  The Emperor and Darth Vader are dead.  The Rebellion have won for now.  But let's think about this for a minute.  The Empire controlled so much of the galaxy, the millions of troops aren't just going to drop their weapons right there and then.  No.  The following years are turbulent, no one knows what's happening or who they're exactly taking orders from.

The Empire are trying to survive.  They're not done yet.  The Jedi are starting to come back.  Luke Skywalker's started a trend.  Apparently, being a Jedi is the new craze.  So there's more of them.  Back to the old days.  Ah, lovely nostalgia.  Including that, there's still plenty of Stormtroopers going about.  And it doesn't help that some folk are looking over their shoulders for Bounty Hunters.  The Smuggler business is still as strong as ever.

And of course, plenty other roles.  So the Empire's not down yet.  Trying to see if this is worth putting more thought in to.  Give me names, or who you fancy playing, then I'll stick up a template.  Check out my story: Fireworks.  Gives a kind of taster, I suppose.  Not the finished product.  I wrote that for a role-play that never got off the ground a long time ago.  It was to take place after ROTJ, with an ex-Stormtrooper travelling around a planet with his reprogrammed Battle Droid (one of those stupid robots from the new films).

Thank you!

A Little Bit of History

I'm not looking for a full biography of what has happened to them before the story.  Just a few brief words ( you can write more if you like, but it's not necessary ) to explain how they got to where they are the end of Return of the Jedi.

I rather don't like you writing off one of the better time periods in the Star Wars universe because of the shitty movies, but I WOULD love to do a post-trilogy game. :3

 Been a while since I found one. I wouldn't mind either playing one of the young Jedi apprentices starting to pop up around that time, or a Scoundrel that putters around in her little ship smuggling. The former would be able to fit into most non-SLAUGHTER THE UNIVERSE groups, and the latter would work better if the entire group decided to try their hands at smuggling/inter-stellar shenanigans.

I want to play Mace Windu as an older and more cynical Grey Jedi, ok folks did you SEE him die in the movie he did get his hand loped off and Force Lightning silly falling from the Chancellor's Offices but did we see a body? Nope. He could have survived and just have been fucked up. Now taking over part of the Empires Fleet to bring order to the galaxy and forming a new Grey Jedi faction.

Anyway Grey Jedi are not evil just dabble in both sides of the Force and tend to have a different outlook. Anyway him showing up, loping off some Admirals heads with his lightsaber and saying I'M IN CHARGE NOW would be most effective.

I can see it now. I'm Mace Windu admirals who is in charge here. Some admiral everyone is afraid says I am. (lightsaber comes out and the admirals head) Ok, now, who is in charge here. The resident Grand admiral says - you are. Good, now what are the assets of the fleet Grand Admiral (so and so).

Are you using or ignoring the expanded universe stuff? I think Grand Admiral Thrawn appears about 5 years after Endor.

Sure, you can play as Mace Windu.  That'd be pretty interesting.

And yes, EU will come in to the story, although I'm not completely up to speed with any of it.  And I'm sure some of the other players aren't either.  So as long as you give a good description of who any canon EU characters are, I'll allow it.

Thrawn is really the big one on the Imperial side. Til he shows up you have a handfull of Moffs and Grand Moffs all trying to claim to be the heir to the Emperor, none of them really co-operating, and the Alliance / New Republic making steady ground.

It's more background than anything else. I have a decent flair for strategy, but I'm no Grand Admiral Thrawn :)

Same here, though perhaps I could make a decent Pellaeon; otherwise, I can just be the skipper of am Imperial patrol ship.

An Emperors Hand might be fun, if a bit munchy :)

A Little Bit of History
After surviving the battle with the Emperor its a long story mostly involving a garbage transport, a sympathetic woman skilled in healing and aharrowing escape from the Captial fighting the Empires Intelligence Service and a new and improved Darth Vader. She has been evading the Empire for the last twenty some years, doing what damage he could and focusing on balancing the two sides of the Living Force. Even with a mechanical hand, a mechanical eye and cheap at that he is still a Jedi Master. Is not as fast as he was but is still a cagey and dangerous Jedi Master with a diplomatic side strong with The Force.
