Welcome, everyone! Feel free to introduce yourselves/your characters here.

Here's some basic info to get you started on character creation:

Characters will start at 1st-level.

All content from the Player's Handbook and Expanded Content is fair game.

Use the 27-point buy method for determining your Ability Scores.

Don't roll for starting credits; rather, take the equipment provided by your Class and Background, and feel free to sell (at full price) anything you don't want. You can then use any remaining credits to purchase additional equipment.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Oh, and if anyone wants to format a complete text character sheet and share it here, that would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I will try to get one together soon.

There was a lot of interest in this game, and we received a lot of good applications. I couldn't narrow it down to six characters, as I had initially intended, so we're starting with seven instead.

I've got to run now, but I'll check in here later this evening.

Greetings! Thanks for the character sheet!

Aaron is a human from a backwater Outer Rim world (haven't decided where exactly yet) who (inadvertently) got into some trouble with the Empire and subsequently joined up with the Rebellion.

I'll get my character sheet done soon. I'm looking forward to this!

You go to the jawas and give them some big egg. They rig up a protocol droid to the holonet and then the magic happens. Most of the time.

Well, if we are all going to be part of the same Rebel cell, we should all probably get to know each other's characters, no?

I've already shared what Kayrrerl looks like in The Cast description section, but I'll share her backstory with you guys here:

quote:
Though presumably born on the planet of Kashyyyk, Kayrrerl is truly a child of Nar Shaddaa. Kayrrerl was only five when her parents arrived on the Smuggler's Moon, so she has no clear memory of what brought them there. She has vague impressions of her father actually flying the ship that brought them to the Huttspace moon, so perhaps they were legitimate traders of some kind. Or maybe they were on the run from the slavers of the Empire. Kayrrerl was never sure. But their time on Nar Shaddaa was short, and brutal. Swoop gangers set upon the Wookiee family when they were walking the lower Promenade. Both her mother and father were slain during the course of the robbery.

Fleeing into the lower city levels, Kayrrerl eventually found herself throwing in with a small group of other street urchins in order to survive. Her education over the next ten years was the cruel tutelage of the street. More often than not, her sheer size and strength saw her safe from the worse of the urban predators. However, that unorthodox education saw her learning to hotwire and jury rig all manner of machinery. Some for survival, some for jobs pulled for credits, and some to repair vehicles for her little child gang. Such competence eventually brought her to the attention of the Hutts, as anything of value on the Smuggler's Moon does. "Offered," more like press-ganged, a position with Lorgosh the Hutt. At first just a courier, but eventually rising to the level of pilot. By the time Kayrrerl was in her twenties, she had left Nar Shaddaa many times to perform smuggling runs on Lorgosh's behalf. And she was good at it too. Unfortunately, nobodies luck lasts forever.

The wily Wookie was caught by an unscheduled patrol that overtook her ship when she was making an illegal fuel exchange over Malastare. While not foolish enough to fight back against her captors to the point of being executed, Kayrrerl nonetheless made life difficult for her local garrison jailers. But as luck, or the Force, would have it, several Rebel saboteurs were being temporarily held at the same prison. Not long after her capture, a rescue mission descended upon the prison and caused all manner of mayhem. Finding herself herded along with the majority of the Rebels, Kayrrerl decided to aid them in their escape. Better them than deal with the reprisals of the Empire. Once freed, Kayrrerl eagerly joined up with the Rebel Alliance. Theirs was a noble cause, and she was sick of dealing with honor-less, backstabbing Hutts. The Rebels found Kayrrerl a useful asset. For she was already skilled in many areas that overlapped with rebellious activity. Besides, when in the thick of a blaster fight, who doesn't want an eight-foot storm of fury watching your back?

Looks good Kayrrel! :)

Usha has a description (and picture!) in her description but here is her backstory:

quote:
Usha is a former member and one of the few survivors of Darokin's Deathrunners, an Outer Rim pirate group wiped out by the Empire. The Deathrunners were not officially Rebels but had an uneasy truce with the local representatives of the Alliance because they didn't use excessive violence and mostly targeted the Hutts and the Empire - Darokin himself and most of the original pirates were escaped slaves from a Hutt Cartel who liberated themselves (and most of their former owner's wealth) during the confusion of the Clone Wars.

Usha herself is the daughter of one of the pirate captains and grew up in the exciting and dangerous world of star buccaneering. She's a good pilot and dreams one day of commanding her own ship as a rebel privateer but she's even better brawler and scrapper, ever happy to throw a punch or point a blaster at a bad guy. In a good mood she's great company, fond of drink, corny jokes and gambling and a friendly punch up. In a bad mood she's... best not crossed really.

Since the destruction of the Deathrunners around the time of the Battle of Yavin Usha has ended up in the Rebellion proper. It has taken some adjustment. While she likes the camaraderie and the excitement and the chance to stick it to the Empire she's puzzled by the willingness of the Rebels to work without masses of credits involved (she wouldn't sell out her friends for money but she does like it) and she's still getting used to more nuanced work.


Mechanically she's a Fighter with the Pirate background with a few other skills to allow her to do stuff outside of brawling and blasting. :-)

I like it, Usha! :)

Looks like we both came from less than shiny origins.

I was thinking about designing a ship for the game, when I remembered I made on a long time ago.

...and then once I looked at it again, I realized it was basically a Corellian freighter that had a baby with an A-Wing.

Nice! Although we should definitely fly in one of the classics for this era to add to the nostalgia spice.

Anyhow, introductions!

quote:
Carrmar Ta is an old Cathar, well in his sixties in fact. He has always been true to the ways of his people in venerating strength and the hunt. But a grievous injury on one of his early blood hunts had left him scarred and wary. Ever since he had been careful and unable to attain glory as he avoided risk. He contended himself with a life in the shade of the glory of others. He carried out his duties and lived an unremarkable life. He found a mate, had children and taught them as well as he could. But now he is alone. His mate died long ago and as Cathar mate for life he would not take another. Alas, one by one his children fell as well. Some in the hunt, as is expected. Others to illness. But his pride and joy, his daughter Radiza Ta, was to become a Jedi. She was killed by the rising Empire.

His bloodline had ended. Never would he see grandchildren. Infuriated at the injustice of his loss of family and purpose he knew his life no longer was of value. Thus he embraced the honorable end. Before his clan he declared a blood hunt upon the Empire. Until his dying day he would hunt it until he had felled the beast. In his heart he has no illusion of seeing the deed done. But that does not matter.

He found his way naturally to the Rebel Alliance. The 'Old Cat' as the Rebels call him was welcome for his wisdom and skill at arms. Unremarkable he might be to his people, but any old Cathar is a fierce and exceptionally experienced hunter to anyone not of his race. He has a way with the savage peoples of the galaxy and an intimate understanding of any wilderness biome that make him a valuable guerilla fighter. Carrmar is difficult to approach or befriend as he already resigned himself to death in battle, but he does eagerly bestow his many wisdoms upon those who can hear them, whether they welcome the Old Cat's ramblings or not.

In reply to Kayrrerl (msg # 18):

Well, that website is my new favorite way to waste time ;

Skawn Vrei's story:

quote:
Skawn Vrei is a poster child for the adage "we are all punished for our good deeds".  Born on Nar Shaddaa to his slave dancer mother, identified early as a prodigy by one of his mother's infatuated patrons, educated in the best medical schools, Skawn was the Twi'lek who was supposed to make it . . . or at least make it out.  Instead, when asked to cover up a wealthy client's misdeeds, he did the right thing, to the wrong person.  He lost his license, his reputation, and his future, and gained a resigned pragmatism, covering a simmering resentment.

Skawn has survived, since his fall, by selling his skills to whomever can pay; usually that means criminals.  Sometimes he treats injuries best hidden from the authorities.  Sometimes he acts as a "biochemical consultant".  Occasionally, he's even provided medical services to Rebel agents; he's even tolerant of their insistence that they're not like his other clients.  As long as he gets paid, he doesn't ask too many questions.  Under his hard shell of cynicism, he's retained a few lingering principles.  He doesn't harm those under his care, he fulfils his contract, and he doesn't talk.  That said, he's learned to do what he can to survive, and that regret is a luxury only the living can afford.  It's one of many he'd like to sample, and he's not fussy about how he gets them.
