I've got a possibly weird game idea.  It's one where a group of Sith and Imperials from the Old Republic era (where the MMO is set) end up in the time frame of the movies.

Possible plot-lines could include trying to take over the Empire from Emperor Palpatine.   Alternately, it could be one of carving out their own little empire (with a small "e") somewhere in the Outer Rim.  Or some other plot idea.

I'd like a small group, of no larger than four.   Either a system game or free-form (which might work better), would be ideal.  I'd be wanting to play a Sith.

It was on an unknown, or long forgotten, world in the Outer Rim.   A group of relic hunters located a hidden chamber, complete with priceless artifacts and what looked to be a dozen Suspension Chambers.    Of the Suspension Chambers, less than half were still working....and the relic hunters would unleash not only their own doom, but a darkness best left buried forever.




I'm envisioning a game with the characters from the MMO (Old Republic) being held in said Suspension Chambers, which where taken from Belsavis for reuse.  Just for a quick rundown, though I suspect most people are already familiar with the setup.

Sith Inquisitor (Sorcerer/Darth Nox) => Me!
Sith Warrior (Emperor's Wrath)
Bounty Hunter (The Jedi Killer)
Imperial Agent (Cipher Nine)

In addition, I'd envision that one or more companions could round out the group.   The details would take a bit of working out, but I'm confident that it would be an enjoyable game.

Are you familiar with the fantasy flight Star Wars system or genesys? Id be able and excited to run a game in that system. Outside of that system I wouldnt have the experience to run a game but would certainly be down to play.

I hate the FFG system!! KILLDIEKILLDIEKILLDIE!! **calms down** Just needed to get that out of my system.

My personal choice would be the Saga Edition D20 rules. I like much good, yaaaa.

I'm not familiar with the system, but I'd lean toward free-form myself; as it's probably going to be hard to duplicate the "flavor" without a ton of tweaking.

I would love to play the Sith warrior/The Emperor's Wrath. She would most definitely be a Marauder.

I have SUPER fond memories of the Agent's plotline, so throwing at least tentative interest in this one.

I'll go ahead and post here what I pitched at a few people.  I think there's enough interest for me to put forth at least the possibility.   Just remember, I had this idea as the characters from the MMO; not brand new characters.



Because I've got a good idea for how the game should start figured out; I thought I'd go ahead and see about whether you're interested.

The backstory would be that the "main characters" and some of their companions were put into stasis, via the Belsavis stasis pods.   Because the pods were moved (to a different planet), some of the pods worked as anticipated and some of them didn't.   We can work out the "why" the stasis pods were used as we go, if you'd prefer.

Refer to message two of the GM Wanted thread (see link below) for how the beginning of the story unfolds.   I'm leaning toward a more sandbox story once the ball gets rolling, and I'm leaving what era they're woken up open.   It could be in the middle of the clone wars, sometime during the rebellion era, or even later if we prefer.

As I've had quite a bit of time to think it over, and I'm going to suggest that we do it Free-Form.   Trying to figure out how to convert the characters into stats is probably more of a headache than it's worth.

Wynternight has professed interest in the Emperor's Wrath, and I'm going to be taking the role of Darth Nox; so I'll mark both of those as tentatively filled.   I'm going to suggest two companions for each of the main four, of which I was thinking one would be their designated love interest.

It's going to take a bit more fleshing out before it's really ready to put into a game thread, but I think this is a good starting point for where we'd want to go and how we'd like to set it up.
