The Republic has fallen. The Jedi are all but extinct. The Sith rule the galaxy, and the Empire tightens it's grip on star systems with no one to oppose it. No one that is, except for you.

You are among the first rebels to take up the fight against the Empire. Relying on guerilla warfare, pure nerve, and more than a small amount of luck you do everything possible to thwart efforts of the Empire.

Coming from every walk of life you first rebels and are driven by any number of motivations. Perhaps you have noble aspirations, hoping to bring down the Empire you are willing sacrifice your very life. Maybe you are driven by fear, the fear of losing you loved ones, your world, and your freedom. You may even be one of those who see the rebel cause as a chance to make a profit.

Whatever your reasons as a rebel have chosen to stand against the Empire. Only time will tell if your actions were those of a hero or traitor.

    *32 point buy system
    *You can roll stats as outlined in the core rulebook.
    *No Ewoks
    *Please include a some sort of a backstory of your character.

    are there any limits on which books are available for character creation?

    Do you have a delorean at least? Regardless the due date for character submission is actually December 4th, 8 PM EST. Apologies for the mistake.

    As of this moment there are no limits placed on which books are available for character creation. I have Saga, Force Unleashed, and Rebellion Era on hand so those are preferred sources but they are not required.

    Definitely interested, although I'm curious about how much space-faring you think might happen. Just wondering how useless it would be to roll a pilot.

  • SakutianSakutian Registered User regular

    There will be a considerable amount of space faring in all probability. A pilot would be actively useful.

    This is definitely not for every GM...but if you're interested in handholding someone through playing without a book, I'd be more than happy to play.

    Oh, and I recommend you change the thread to title to something like "[SW Saga] The Dark Times- Now Recruiting!", just to make sure people see it.

    I've taught a few people the basics for the one-shot I ran a few weeks back, never attempted to do so over the net but if you're game for it so am I. Plus I've found the Sagas community on here to be really friendly and more than willing to help new players so I'm sure we can get you sorted.

    Oh man, I'm so excited for this. If I had thought of it I'd have brought my books to my parents' for Thanksgiving and rolled up a pc. Looks like I've still got all kinds of time though.

    Trying to come up with thoughts around a Mon Calamari Engineer of some sort.

    How combat-heavy is this game likely to be, Sakutian? I guess that'll help determine how specialized he ends up being...

    I'm very interested in this! I'm out of state until the end of the weekend though, so I can't roll up a sheet until then. I very much would like to play though.

    So what are the rules on playing a Force Sensitive in this? I was thinking of playing an orphaned Padawan of some sort.

    For the record the fact that this is Thanksgiving weekend is a large part of the reason for our prolonged recruitment. Turkey comas can take a while to recover from.

    Now for some Answers!

    JacquesCousteau- I forgot to mention I have a special house rule about all PC characters who are not able to speak Basic. They receive, as a free piece of equipment, a translator device that is capable of translating one language into Basic for them. This worked out pretty well for me the last two times I used it.

    I love Wookies by the way, glad to see that someone is choosing to make one.

    psolms- If your character happened to be a smuggler, or a pilot of some kind, then yes I would give him or her a free ship. It's not going to be a great ship but you will have something to get you started. Let me know what sort of ship you were thinking of and we'll figure it out.

    El Skid- An Engineer would be handy certainly. There is going to be combat because...well you know Rebels tend to blow stuff up. If the party chooses to approach missions and scenarios with stealth and guile they will certainly find an Engineer who can use technomancy to their benefit.

    Heir- Force sensitives, or even a full blown Jedi, are welcome. I am going to let you in on a pet peeve of mine though. I hate that so many Jedi survived Order 66. The list of survivors seems to grow ever longer and it irks me. Of course some Jedi and their Padawans survived though and I would be happy to have one on board.

    Dewlanrirr
    (Dewy? Ha. Anyway.)

    Bio: Dewlanrirr was reared on the Wookiee home planet Kashyyyk where the young Wookiee excelled in the physical arena as a skilled hunter. His accomplishments acquired him little renown, however, due to his constrained and modest nature.

    A fateful encounter with an exiled Wookiee mystic changed this when a greater destiny was revealed to him. Convinced that he was to protect a sacred Wookiee artifact from a coming invasion, Dewlanrirr stole the artifact and fled Kashyyyk mere weeks before its subjugation under the Galactic Empire.

    Dishonored among his unknowning brethren and nearly out of credits, Dewlanrirr hopes to survive for the day when he will return the artifact to its rightful home among the wroshyr forests of Kashyyyk.

    EDIT: Tried to find a Wookiee YouTube video but a lot of them are pretty creepy.

    See now I've got to ask, what the heck is sacred to wookies? It seems like all they have are trees and guns.

    I was thinking his Ryyk blade was something sacred to them like the one in Knights of the Old Republic but it could be anything associated with hunting: trophies, weapons, the remains of a famous hunter?

    Sounds good. We are starting with lvl 1 characters right? I'll probably go with a younger padawan then...maybe one who is 17-18 years of age.

    The other option I might go with is a young adult who washed out of the training. Maybe wasn't chosen by a Jedi Master and ended up quitting.

    Will probably go with a padawan though since this will by my first full game. Don't feel like multi-classing just yet.

    I think my character might be a good candidate to be paired up with someone else's character. He/she is just a kid who has very little understanding of the universe outside of the Jedi Temple.

    His survival will have probably been based more on luck than anything else at this point. I dunno. Wish I had my book so I could start rolling up some stats. :(

    Oh a sacred Ryyk blade, that works. The idea of him carrying around a small reliquary with the bone of some ancient hunter inside does sound pretty cool too.

    Yeah Heir we're starting at level 1. I like the idea of a young padawan who has been cut off from his/her master. Sorry I don't know of a good online too for Saga, if you need something from one of the books though I can probably help you out.

    I'm currently playing with a character generator I found with google. Looks pretty handy for those of us without books...

    Speaking of which, this one makes reference to a tech specialist thingamy, which I have found refers to this facinating document; seems right along the lines of what I was thinking. Am I okay to use this, Sakutian?

    2. Comlink - 25 cr

    For RP purposes I'm going to say he lost most of the rest either through theft or was conned out of it. Let's say he was 200 credits left.

    skid, as a mon calimari, if perception is a trained skill, you get skill focus: perception as a bonus feat. which is why your perception is +10 when you have +0 in wis.

    all im saying is, you should add that to your feat list.
