Game Basics - Survey
The core premise of this campaign is that the players are adepts of the Force; identified in their prior walks of life and were sent or journeyed to Tython for their Jedi training. The setting will be right after the original campaign of Star Wars: The Old Republic, prior to the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion. The Jedi Council have to rebuild their numbers after the losses suffered during their war with the Sith Empire.

I'll be trying a hybrid approach to party management - individual threads for individual stories, but occasionally bringing several people or even the whole group together for a mission. I am going to limit, for character creation, classes/ races/ specializations to the FaD core/Beta. As things progress I see opening it up, but there are houserules and modifications to some of the EotE and AoR specs I don't want to get too into right now.

If folks have suggestions, feel free to speak up - I do want this to be a fun campaign and will be doing my best to make sure y'all enjoy it.

Before you get too deep into character backstory creation, please answer the following brief survey questions so I can better tailor the stories to the characters. Just reply in this thread - maybe your answers will help spark someone else put something to words.

1) How familiar are you with the setting? Star Wars in general, and the Old Republic period specifically?

2) List three individual words, or phrases, that epitomize Star Wars for you. Lightsabers, blasters, starships, galactic conflict, etc.

3) How familiar are you with the FFG system? Have you played this, or the other lines previously?

4) Rank general themes. Action, adventure, diplomacy, exploration.

5) Rank specific plot seeds. Natural phenomena, artifact retrieval, delving ruins, finding lost Jedi, political intrigue, dispute mediation, upholding the law.

Massively familiar. I've played TOR extensively with almost every character type, and I've played through both KotOR games repeatedly. As for SW in general, I'm quite familiar with it, as I saw SW when it first was in theaters in 1977 and have been a die-hard fan ever since.

2) List three individual words, or phrases, that epitomize Star Wars for you. Lightsabers, blasters, starships, galactic conflict, etc.

Jedi, lightsabers, a galaxy far far away

3) How familiar are you with the FFG system? Have you played this, or the other lines previously?

I've played and GMed all of the SW RPGs, including FFG, since each came out.

4) Rank general themes. Action, adventure, diplomacy, exploration.

Action, Adventure, Exploration, Diplomacy.

5) Rank specific plot seeds. Natural phenomena, artifact retrieval, delving ruins, finding lost Jedi, political intrigue, dispute mediation, upholding the law.

Upholding the law, natural phenomena, artifact retrieval, delving ruins, dispute mediation, finding lost Jedi, political intrigue.
