Hello fine Critical Failurens.
It's been a while since I came out of my Lurker cave and actually posted here. But it's that time again.
Looking for interest in a Star Wars game. But you already know that from the thread title. So, Details:
Four to Six players.
Set during the beginning of the dark times after the Clone War wrapped up (year-year and a half after ep3. Eventually, I’d love to go to New Hope and beyond.)
The idea I’m working on is to have the party all be part of or just joined a single freighter crew. (The idea came from me thinking. “Man, Firefly sure is cool. But it’d be better if it happened in a Galaxy far far away.) – Which is why I want to have connected backstories and collaborative generation as below. There will be space encounters and the like, I'd try to aim for a 65-35 spilt character/starship scale encounters. The Rebellion and other movements will feature as the story unfolds.
I’d prefer to wait on character generation until the roster is set, to encourage interweaving of backstories. Please feel free to chime in with what race, class, and character idea you might be interested in playing however.
Once the roster is set, all classes are open; naturally Jedi and other Force traditions are scarce in this time period so 1-2 Forcey types at most. All other classes are wide open. Any race that is prominent in the Dark Times area is free game.
So, speak up. Thoughts, questions, concerns, Good Idea, Horrible Idea, or Meh Idea.
