OOC Star Wars: Rise of the Jedi

HeirHeir Registered User regular
edited January 2013 in Critical Failures
12 years have passed since a young rebel pilot, Luke Skywalker, saved a fledging rebellion by destroying the first Death Star over Yavin IV. As Skywalker grew in his abilities with the Force and became a Jedi Knight over Endor, so did the rebellion swell until it blossomed into the New Republic over the very same forest moon.

After the Battle of Endor, the New Republic quickly swelled in size with the defection of many sectors yearning for freedom from the tyranny of the Empire. However, many others remained loyal to the Imperials, and a bloody war ensued for nearly a decade after. By 12ABY, both sides realized there was nothing to be gained in continued fighting, and an uneasy truce was brokered by the Hutt Government. Now, the New Republic and the Empire have an uneasy peace...with both powers conducting proxy wars via local governments across several planets. One could assume this cold war could someday blow up into another galaxy-spanning conflict again, though many leaders on both sides do not want that to occur.

Amongst all of this, Luke Skywalker, now a Jedi Master, has returned to Yavin IV to rebuild the Jedi Order. After only a couple years, he has graduated his first class of Jedi Knights, who will be the first generation of peacekeepers throughout the galaxy. The New Republic will come to rely on Luke and his Jedi to combat the coming shadow hanging over the galaxy.

What is this?
This is a Star Wars Saga game set in the New Republic Era, nearly 9 years after the Battle of Endor. In this version of events the Empire and New Republic have formed an uneasy truce after years of fighting with little changes in borders, with the Hutts as a third government of its own. A lot of the stories from this timeline I am disregarding, but may borrow characters from if I think it fits my needs.

Players
@Klivian
@Sakutian
@ArcanisTheImpotent

Basic Game Rules
*34 point buy.
*Books: Core rulebook, Clone Wars, Rebellion Era, Starships of the Galaxy, Galaxy of Intrique, Scum and Villainy, Galaxy at War, and Threats of the Galaxy.
*Most races are available, but if you choose an Ewok I will cut you. I don't mean cut you from the game, I mean I will find you, and cut your flesh with a blade-like object.
*Please use orkos or invisiblecastle for rolling
*We're flexible with posting, but once a day is preferred.

Questions for your characters:

1. How do your characters know each other, and how long have they been acquaintances? Naturally, the master/apprentice will have some history (though I can tell you now it won't be a long history, maybe a year at best).
2. What does your character think of the other members of this party?
3. How did they come to be a jedi or be involved with Jedi Academy (if they're a non-Force Sensitive)?


Reminder on what characters I want:

1 newly minted Jedi Knight - CL 8. (8th level taken must be Jedi Knight, you may do what you wish for the other 7 levels, but remember to meet the requirements to take that level in Jedi Knight).

2 Level 4 Jedi Apprentices, OR 1 Level 4 Jedi Apprentice + 1 Level 5 Another Class. I will let you guys decide how you want to do this. I definitely want at least ONE apprentice for the jedi knight character. The 3rd player may choose to either be a second apprentice, or they can be something else...perhaps a pilot that the Jedi Academy employs, or a noble who wishes to aid Master Skywalker and his new Jedi Order...whatever really. I'll leave that up to you. Jedi Apprentice will be level 4. Non-jedi can be level 5.

I'll leave it up to you guys to choose characters and determine how they know each other. Once we get that all hashed out, I'll get this thing going!

    Yeah, after I wrote up my initial gameplan, I realized "Oh man, the Hutts. No way they've picked a side yet." They're playing both sides in typical Hutt fashion.

    so i have the character mostly done, i'm just trying to decide on the mechanics; should i go with my slightly more aggressive cuisinart build or a more defensive oriented build? @heir, @sakutian? what do you all think?

  • SakutianSakutian Registered User regular
    edited December 2012
    I'm not totally against making an apprentice, but Klivian came up with a solid concept and I thought it would be good for us to have one non-Jedi. Besides I was already your apprentice once upon a time.

    I keep toying with this one idea for a Jedi engineer, I did a medic last time so I thought it'd be fun to try something different this time around.

    I submit for your approval Jad Murv, Sullustan Jedi of the New Order.

    SullustanJedi-GH.jpg

    Backstory
    As an infant Jad Murv was discovered in the ruins of her familie’s former home on w world devastated by the Clone Wars by an Iktochi Jedi known as Ukrin. Sensing the force potential within the baby and knowing that she would not be able to survive on the decimated world Ukrin decided to bring her to Coruscant where she could be trained as a member of the order. Before he reached Corurscant the Iktochi witnessed a compelling vision of himself handing his young charge over to a family on Bespin. He chose to trust in his vision and the will of the force changing his course heading for the gas giant.

    Ukrin found a family of Sullustans living on Bespin just as he’d seen in his vision and he entrusted the baby into their care. Despite her Jedi protectors best intentions the war came to Bespin soon after he left and the earliest years of her life were spent in huddling for safety as the CIS droids and the soldiers of the Republic battled for control of the planet.

    Throughout her youth Jad worked aboard her adopted families mining ship harvesting the valuable tibanna gas found on Bespin. She proved herself to be an exceptionally skilled pilot and mechanic despite her youth. However when their tiny ship was caught in the wake of a powerful storm system all hope seemed to be lost until a second ship swooped in to save them. Once they’d reached safety Jad’s parents offered their rescuer their deepest thanks only to realize that they had been saved by none other than Luke Skywalker.

    Master Skywalker had been searching the galaxy for potential recruits to join the new Jedi Order and he offered Jad a place among them. Out of gratitude and curiosity Jad agreed to leave Bespin for the first time she could remember and join the Jedi. However her time in the temple has inflamed her curiosity about the rest of the galaxy and the force. These distractions have hindered her ability to master herself as she trains to become a Jedi knight.

    Questions
    1) I'm thinking that she hasn't known either of the other characters for very long before the start of the game. Perhaps a passing familiarity with them from meeting in the temple but I don't see a lengthy history between them.
    2) Deeply curious and impressed. Beings who have seen so much have a wealth of experience and information to offer the relatively sheltered Sullustan.
    3) I feel the backstory answers this one well enough.

    I think this character brings some valuable toys to the table for the party, and it gives me a lot of fun options as we go on. It gives the party a pretty solid pilot, as well as someone who can use starship weapons effectively. She can also repair anything they might need patched up. I like how open she feels because I can see her taking many, many paths depending on the story we have.

    Heir I might have fudged your original idea but if you want me to modify Jad I can do so. I thought she worked far better as an impure Jedi though.

    Probably won't have retraining Arc.

    Sak: Impure Jedi definitely works, no worries there. I know I said a Jedi Apprentice could only be CL4...but I think this should be fine.

    One thing to reiterate, since Arc will be playing the Jedi Knight, anyone else who has a character with levels in jedi is assumed to be his character's apprentice.

    And one modification on starting level. If you choose to multi-class as a Jedi Apprentice, and at least TWO of those levels are non-jedi levels, you may go with a CL 5 character.

    Sak's character sheet is a good example of this. Two levels in Scoundrel and 3 in Jedi.

    I'll stick with my Duros Jedi apprentice concept
    I think the Duros will instead be an Indiana Jones type character. He's a bookworm to be sure, but basically a jedi artifact hunter. No stranger to the seedy underworld artifact trade, knows his way around abandoned ruins, speaks/reads some archaic languages, etc. Always ready for the next dig and looking for the "big find" that will restore power to the Jedi Order.

    I'll crank out the stats tonight.

    Aira Cordi

    normally i would wax poetic and make a fairly elaborate backstory, but this time i am keeping it simple; she is a former slave to Jabba the Hutt and with the death of the famous crime lord she entered the galaxy at large doing odd unskilled jobs to avoid starvation. in a twist of destiny she met Skywalker again on one of his many adventures and he extended the invitation to the young Togruta woman to join his Jedi Order.

    Personality

    Easygoing and likable, there's one thing she doesn't abide by and that's domination of others. She also takes the Jedi Art very seriously and is constantly seeking to improve her skills against the top duelists of the emerging order. She hopes that by training two apprentices to Knighthood she proves to Master Skywalker that she is ready for the rank of Master. It would make Aira very happy indeed to rediscover and rekindle the lost arts of lightsaber combat.

    Grrr.

    So Arc, this is my fault because I didn't word my requirements correctly, but I had intended for the Jedi Knight to not be fully Jedi in levels taken. I felt this fit thematically with the timeline and setting.

    However, since I didn't make this clear at all, you're welcome to stick with what you've got. It's a good build. Up to you sir.

    ah my mistake

    you do realize that it's impossible to be a Jedi Knight at level 8 without taking levels in soldier then, right?

    i know you said the build is okay but the only way to hit jedi knight at 8 with required multiclassing is through soldier

    ArcanisTheImpotent on
  • HeirHeir Registered User regular
    First off...no mistake on your part sir. I just plum overlooked that when I was typing out rules.

    And you're right...I forgot about the BAB requirement, which could only be attained at Level 8 with jedi or soldier levels. Can you tell I didn't spend too much time looking at details like that? :)

    Tell you what, if you choose to do some multiclassing, and want to take scout/scoundrel/noble levels, you can do level 9. It doesn't really impact the game in a significant way, and I'd rather you build out something you like thematically.

    Again though, if you want to stay with your current build, it's up to you.

    Rek Na'Maak
    Puzell.jpg

    Background
    Rek is the second son of the head of the Na'Maak Shipping Company, a highly profitable interstellar shipper with branch offices scattered throughout the Core worlds. He received the best education at the finest schools where he developed a passion for xenoarchaeology focusing on Jedi and Sith lore.

    Rek begged his father for enough credits to finance an expedition to the ruins of an ancient Jedi temple and began recruiting an exploration team. When Master Skywalker learned of the expedition, he quietly approached Rek and warned him that exploration of sites laden with Force energy was exceptionally dangerous and that only one strong in the Force should attempt it. He offered Rek the chance to study at the Jedi Academy, hoping that perhaps Rek's passion for the past could help illuminate the Jedi's future.

    Rek accepted and has been studying under Master Cordi for about a year. He is often impressed by her wisdom despite her lack of formal education. He is, however, continually frustrated by her insistence on lightsaber drills and physical training which eat into time for his more scholarly endeavors.

    Rek met Jad Murv when she joined the academy and began an easy friendship tinkering on Rek's starship together. Rek is first to admit that his ship was in terrible shape before she came along. Rek finds Jad's relatively sheltered upbringing quaint, but she is an excellent listener and is eager to hear Rek spin tales about the rise and fall of civilizations.

    I was looking at the Ghtroc 720 Freighter. Seems roomy... plus: escape pods!

    I hinted at it in Rek's bio, but my thought was that it could be a used freighter that his father's shipping company didn't have use of anymore.

    The Citadel Class Cruiser is also nifty (docks two starfighters, hint, hint)

  • HeirHeir Registered User regular
    The Citadel Class Cruiser is very nice...though I'm not sure whether that's something you guys would have yet...it's a damn nice ship. Might be something to aspire to at some point.

    the Ghtroc 720 is a good ship...slow as balls though...2 speed (starship scale)? Eesh.

    As long as it moves at the speed of plot =)

    I'm sure space combat won't come up a LOT...but since we have two pilots, you've got to know it's going to come up sometime.

    Here's what I'm going to do:

    You guys get 50,000 credits to buy a ship. Any remaining credits can be used to modify said ship based on the rules outlined in Starships of the Galaxy.

    So if you bought a 45,000 ship...that'd leave 5000 over for possibly increasing its shields and adding another weapon. Please note the size modifier for cost...so the bigger the ship, the more you'll have to pay.

    I imagine you could squeeze out a little extra shields or speed pretty easily on a 40,000 ship.

    I've seen some good freighters in the Clone Wars book btw...

    In an effort to give us a human I redesigned my character as a human, her backstory remains the same though. I present Berru Secune human padawan of the new Jedi Order.

    289x425.aspx

    Backstory
    As an infant Berru Secune was discovered in the ruins of her familie’s former home on w world devastated by the Clone Wars by an Iktochi Jedi known as Ukrin. Sensing the force potential within the baby and knowing that she would not be able to survive on the decimated world Ukrin decided to bring her to Coruscant where she could be trained as a member of the order. Before he reached Corurscant the Iktochi witnessed a compelling vision of himself handing his young charge over to a family on Bespin. He chose to trust in his vision and the will of the force changing his course heading for the gas giant.

    Ukrin found a family of Sullustans living on Bespin just as he’d seen in his vision and he entrusted the baby into their care. Despite her Jedi protectors best intentions the war came to Bespin soon after he left and the earliest years of her life were spent in huddling for safety as the CIS droids and the soldiers of the Republic battled for control of the planet.

    Throughout her youth Jad worked aboard her adopted families mining ship harvesting the valuable tibanna gas found on Bespin. She proved herself to be an exceptionally skilled pilot and mechanic despite her youth. However when their tiny ship was caught in the wake of a powerful storm system all hope seemed to be lost until a second ship swooped in to save them. Once they’d reached safety Jad’s parents offered their rescuer their deepest thanks only to realize that they had been saved by none other than Luke Skywalker.

    Master Skywalker had been searching the galaxy for potential recruits to join the new Jedi Order and he offered Jad a place among them. Out of gratitude and curiosity Jad agreed to leave Bespin for the first time she could remember and join the Jedi. However her time in the temple has inflamed her curiosity about the rest of the galaxy and the force. These distractions have hindered her ability to master herself as she trains to become a Jedi knight.

    Questions
    1) I'm thinking that she hasn't known either of the other characters for very long before the start of the game. Perhaps a passing familiarity with them from meeting in the temple but I don't see a lengthy history between them.
    2) Deeply curious and impressed. Beings who have seen so much have a wealth of experience and information to offer the relatively sheltered girl.
    3) I feel the backstory answers this one well enough.

    I don't see a girl of her age having enough credits to get her hands on any spaceship, her family didn't even own anything that impressive, so I leave the choice of ship in Klivian's hands.

    the lack of form powers kills me @heir! makes me weep

    i would like to scale back aira's murder oriented build but i feel naked without saber powers

    I know man. But again, I'm looking for stuff that fits the timeline. The new Jedi order is in its infancy.

    Besides, your character will most likely still be a murder machine. Yours always are. ;)

    Go for it Sakutian,

    Arc, see my PM.

    Kliv and Sak, up to you on the ship. I gave my guidelines. You're welcome to just buy a stock ship, or buy something cheaper and mod as you can afford.

    I'm leaning towards the YT-2400 now. It comes stock with pretty good maneuverability and shields.

    Anyone have an suggestions on upgrades? We have 18k to spend from Heir's allowance, but Rek has about 30k of his own funds he can put into it.

    1x Hyperdrive 15k
    Maneuvering Jets +2 DEX 10k

    The Yt-2400 looks good to me. With my tech specialist feat, and assuming Heir doesn't object I could do some pretty nice stuff with the left over credits. Increase the speed by 1 square, increase the SR by 5, or increase the Dexterity score by 2 for one quarter of the ship's cost.

    Works for me.

  • SakutianSakutian Registered User regular
    Pardon me if I'm mistaken, but I think I could also increase the power of our ship's weapons if that is something we're interested in. Although as we are Jedi perhaps we don't want to be cruising around the galaxy in a ship that is armed to the teeth.
