OOC
Hey team.  Could you each let everyone know your character concept?  Hopefully that will help with some of the chargen details.  I know some folks like to fill gaps so that should help them.

Let me know if you need any help.  Also, I'm new to rpol and pbp so any pointers would be appreciated.  :)

OOC
Jaryd is a balanced character to begin with. Okay at a range of things, not great at anything particularly. Some combat skill, melee and pistol. 1 rank in most interaction skills and knowledge skills. 2 ranks leadership. He is a Commander tactician.

Leia'kah'nonya, Nonya to friends, is a fairly one-sided character, and that side is decidedly Social and non-combat, with some sneaksy stuff thrown in.  She's a Diplomat Agitator.

I will handle leadership and coercion, if you will take the other social skills. Sound good?

We'll both be handling Coercion, considering more than half of of an Agitator's Talent Tree involves Coercion (and 7 Talents only involve Coercion)...

But we'll make it work.  We just have to figure out who's the Good Cop and who's the Bad Cop...

/laughs nervously

I have exactly one skill above rank 1 and it's not Coercion...

She's poised to build into the Agitator role.  With the occasional pick up from Smuggler's Thief Specialization.  I'm just not willing to cede her eventual role so quickly.  Besides as a Tactician I'd figure Cool and Leadership would be your jam (which I'm happy to not have much of).

All sheets are editable so you can drop yours in there.  Looks like a couple of you have copied a sheet from elsewhere but I will put a blank in there that you can just erase and paste yours in if you wish.

Greetings everyone! I am glad to be joining you in starting this glorious revolution....er, rebellion!

I will be providing your anthropomorphic assistance. Since you seem to covering the social side of things my current concept is a protocol droid, slightly reprogrammed for espionage and slicing.

Do you feel that will be a good fit? For that does anyone want to be responsible for a "former Separatist" spy droid?

Hi all.  Backgrounds!  Let's discuss them.  You're welcome to all be acquainted prior to the game starting if you wish but ultimately you've been brought together for an urgent mission by Inar Trest, a Chandrilan, working directly with Bail Organa.  The Rebellion is in a nascent state so it's your job to secure resources and start setting up Rebel cells.

Re: OOC
Jaryd is personally acquainted with Bail and Breha Organa. They are his family's friends and provided shelter for him and his parents while they were on the Run. Jaryd has been informed that the separatist movement and the empire were two sides of the same coin, and considers Darth Vader and the Emperor his personal nemeses.

Hey all.  You'll have a YT-2000 as your ship to start out.  Additionally, we'll go with 15 Duty rather than the recommended 10 in the book.  Please use our bio lines to enter wounds, strain and melee and ranged defense.

A YT-2000 you say? I am informed that travel abroad is most enlightening. I am sure it will benefit sirs and madam greatly. One is obligated to point out however, I am not programmed for astrogation, but rather sartorial excellence and baby sitting.

Re: OOC
TC-R3D, are you owned or in service to the Organas?

My character's family is in reduced circumstances but were formerly rich. We might have purchased you, and now you're one of the only assets we have left. You could be Jaryd's valet. As soon as you passed into his ownership he would offer you freedom, and would also offer you employment. Jaryd is used to having servants but doesn't like owning things that can talk back.

Re: OOC
I had left my history a bit flexible in case some one wanted a connection. I don't see any reason what you recommend wouldn't work just fine. So a former asset of your family, now employed as a valet it is.

Now a question that comes up is are you aware of his additional programming beyond serving as a valet? His computer and skullduggery is reasonably good, and while he might not be as good as the 'socialites' ate it his deception and charm are pretty good as well.

Re: OOC
Chebva Motot:
Dawn Shroud


This brings up a good point about the ship's name.  Does anyone else have any suggestions?  Maybe a quick vote is in order if we have other names.  If not we'll go with Dawn Shroud.

...Let's just not do Aluminum Falcon or Century Hawk or something that's clearly a play on Millennium Falcon.  :)


In case it was missed (or I just didn't explicitly state it?) you have 75 additional xp to spend after you created your character.  You've been around a little.  (Perhaps you got dragged into the Clone War in some capacity?)

Mr. Trests people seemed to be especially impressed with my maintenance and ability with the big guns."

A youngish human head with short blonde hair and blue eyes hangs down in the open hatch, "Looks good boss, mechs put nice polish on deck.  Getta techie put in RGB, fog effects, kickin noise maker, be right party machine.  OH!  Leia'kah'nonya ʻLelo'meka'huhū, or Nonya if we're friends.  Popped in with mechs earlier when they was spiffy the decks, no worry, mechs no notice me either."

She swings down and drops lightly to the ground.  "Big Boss said ya need my help on somethin."



Made an adjustment from Diplomat/Agitator+Thief to Smuggler/Thief+Scoundrel.  Can still talk her way out of small problems, but is also better at sneaking out of them too.  Just no chance she'll ever grow up to talk the enemies into giving up and going home.

"Good day, miss. I am Jaryd. This is Mr. Chebva Motot. Kindly excuse me for a moment."

With a gesture, Jaryd beckons TC-R3D to follow him back some way. He crouches down next to the droid and says sotto voce,

"Play back her name for me."

Five minutes of practice later, Jaryd returns to the team.

"A pleasure to meet you, Leia'kah'nonya 'Lelo'meka'huhū. I am sure that all the modifications you have planned will be of great help. I see that you are skilled at subtle matters."

As far as an 'organic' name, that is correct, I do not currently have one at this time. A previous owner referred to me as 'Red' however he later had my playing repainted. He seemed to feel it was humorous."

The droid strongly resembles the 3PO series of protocol droids and is black with silver trim.

Nonya, if you're planning to transition into being more of a con artist, I figure you're probably focused on Deception for your interaction skills now, right? That's my character's blind spot.

She was always a con-artist, but yeah, I've shifted more firmly into con-artist/sneak-thief and left Coercion firmly in the rear view mirror (not only is it out of Career now, but no Talents rely on it anymore).

Her strongest skills are now Stealth (PAAB) and Coordination (AAAB), followed by Deception and Skullduggery (PAA-S), and Perception, Streetwise, and Vigilance (PAA).  Her Agility, Cunning, Presence, and Willpower are all 3s, so all those skills are at least "adequate" even without skill ranks.  Brawn and Intellect are only 2.

And if she believed in nonsensical 'Jedi' wizardry her ability to go unidentified would be almost Jedi-like...  due to Talents and fashion sense she increases Difficulty Checks to identify her by 3 (Indistinguishable is almost a Force Power once get enough ranks in it).

She's poised to go any of three directions:  More talky, more sneaky/thiefy, or more left field: ie Piloting, Gunfighting, Survivaling.  Which ever we seem to need as the game progresses.

Looks like I've got all characters in and finalized(?)!  After some additional consideration, I'm granting everyone an additional 2,500 credits.  Since you've been around a little bit I figure you should have saved up a few credits.  If you dropped your Duty score to pick up extra credits already you're welcome to just "trade" these to get the XP back but that's up to you.  +5xp = -1k credits, +10xp = -2500 credits.

I am planning to get the first in-game post up tomorrow but I have an extremely busy day so it may slip to Tuesday.
