That's very interesting. It's not something I'd intended, but it sounds great so let's pretend I did Wink

Actually, I just like the yellow (because of Zayne, yes) and noticed most others had blue or green, with only one other yellow, so I chose that. The green Jedi robes was simply because he's a Corellian. Corellian Jedi were known to wear green robes.

Nifty Life.

@IR2 I thought it might be a good idea to create a separate thread for the timeline, character bios and such (so people don't have to search through thread pages to find the info). So I created this thread:
http://www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=29883#29883

Not to steal your glory but it seemed like it might be more user friendly to keep all that information in a separate thread. It seemed to work well with the Mercenary RPG and I thought such a thread might work well for this RPG (a thread which of course anyone with mod/admin power is free to edit in the interest of keeping it up to date).

Most excellent! I was thinking of adding it to the 1st post of this thread- but that works even better!

So regarding the freighter Will observed on the way to Sullust I thought that could be a freighter full of Knights of Pain responding to Jax's disturbance of their operations on Sullust.

Regarding the art on the ship it is a very subtle reference of the Knights of Pain unit patches which is a shield design with two red lightning bolts converging at the tip on the base of the shield with the main part of the shield containing some sort of skull design. In the case of the Sullust group I thought they might use a star scape pattern to create a stylized human skull. Not obvious enough to have the casual observer spot it or have it stand out at a distance even to someone familiar with Knights of Pain logos, but at close range it is obvious to anyone in the know.

Sounds good.


And NOTE TO LURKERS CURIOUS ABOUT THIS RPG- we're always in a place for someone to come in. The ship's crew has never been fully mentioned, and anytime we hit a new planet- (as we have with Life here) you can come in that way too.

Basically it is a game. Each player creates a character (or more as is the case with Life and IR2). All the characters then engage in a story (agreed on by the group).

The basics are you write posts that develops your character and their role in the story as they interact with other characters and act/react to the story developments The easiest way to understand how this is actually done would be to browse/read through these two threads:

http://www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=791

http://www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1111

To get an idea of what a character bio is (which you must create and post in this thread for approval before playing) check out this thread:

http://www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1191

If you've got some clarification questions feel free to ask! And as IR2 has said we're happy to add new players. Very Happy

And if you are Salaris or Rogue, you get ridiculously aggravated with none of the other members (namely Mara) posting anything!

But she will! As soon as she remembers where the story left off...Confused

You were going to escape and begin making your way to when you run into Jax (Life) and hire him to get you off Sullust in an homage to ANH.

The very end of your last post (on page 3) reads:

Rushing to the boarding ramp, she found it already lowered and the Dark Man missing. Reaching out for him in the Force, she found his aura was bubbling, nearly exploding, like lava out of a volcano. Whatever had spooked him, it was troubling enough that he had seemingly forgotten about his prisoner. If he was setting a trap for her, she could not see the point, and she had never met a better actor.

Considering this for no more than a moment, Jayda thought it prime time to make her escape.

Hey! I've been better! I swear! lol

No it's all good- I find the slowness of our posts allows for more time to think plot points out. When we were posting like 10 posts a day I found it harder to keep up Laughing

Thanks, Salaris! I remember now exactly where I was going with that. *rushes off to mock up next post*

That sounds like fun! I'll give it a try but I'll probably wait 2 weeks for classes to be done.

Sure thing! You can read up on the 1st chapter the Hoth Expedition to see what's happened so far in the story. Just let us know when you're ready and what you're thinking. We're always happy to have more players.
