Star Wars d20
« on: January 26, 2007, 02:23:29 PM »
Who would be interested in joining a Sith oriented Star Wars d20 game?  Level would be in the 6-7 range, 32 point build.  Timewise, it'd be about a millenium before the movies.

Hmmm, I might be.  Is a millenium KotOR time?

KOTOR really takes place four millenium earlier but the same background applies.  Does that help?

Tentatively.

I've never played a force user, so would want to have a read up and see how the Sith played.

I should probably mention that force users won't be required to play.

Weren't all the Sith force users?

Nope.   ;) 
Not all Sith were force users.  Sith rather represents an ideal than just a race/group of people.
Granted, only the Dark Jedi type could rule over the Sith but any who espoused the ideals were certainly welcome.    :)

Ah, my bad then. I took Sith to mean the same as Jedi, i.e. all force users.

If you had placed the game in the Star Wars Legacy timeline I would've joined in a heartbeat. Those Imperial Knights are the coolest! Wouldn't you agree?

Where do they come in? Last time I picked up a Star Wars comic was the best part of 10 years ago.

***Spoliers ahead***





It takes place about 120 years after the battle of Yavin. The Empire in this story is not the evil faction, I'd say they are a grey faction, with the Jedi as light and Sith as dark. The Alliance of free planets are wiped out and absorbed into the Empire. The war seemed to have started over misunderstandings and political necessity rather than ideology. After the Alliance are defeated, Emperor Ronan Fel asks the Jedi to lay down their arms and swear allegience to the Empire. Some do, becoming Imperial Knights, but many refuse, gathering at the planet of Ossus. A few days later Sith and Imperial forces attack, and the Jedi are more or less wiped out except for a few that manages to get away.
A short time after the Massacre at Ossus Darth Krayt, leader of the Sith faction, marches into the throne room and cuts down the man sitting on the throne, proclaiming himself Emperor (that's what you see in one of the pictures). But it turns out he just cut down a stand in, the real Emperor was still alive, in hiding, gathering loyal forces to him, eventually retaking Bastion. So the Sith sits on Coruscant, the Emperor on Bastion, starting eachother down.
A great story so far. I don't care to much for the main character or the people around him, but the Imperial and Sith factions are really cool, and their civil  war with stormtrooper against stormtrooper are very interesting.

I can't GM it because I'm not familiar enough with it.  :P
So, anyone else up for the game idea I've proposed?

I'd be game to play a Sith, but I'm not so familiar with your proposed time period either. I can be equally confused anywhen :)

They do indeed. (A jawa mechanic has always made perfect sense to me. But then again, a jawa jedi also makes perfect sense to me...)
