Wayward Stars (OOC)

Recommended Posts

Group A -

Kymrel as Ramani Fenn, a Balosar Smuggler gifted with a silver tongue and an addiction to death sticks!

The Shy Ion as Eya, a Human escapee of a brutal Inquisitor training program! 

Weedles and Fries as D-MB2 (Embeetoo), a B2 Battle Droid refurbished as a medic, who is more in touch with his past than he lets on. 

primusnine as CR-0216 "Crow", an embittered Clone Trooper who can't quite retire fully into civilian life. 

Jedi Ronin as Torin Dol, a Kel Dor Consular who cares deeply for the wellbeing of others. 

 

[sNIP]

We have a full group of five for Group A now. I will be adding a new topic to the Force and Destiny Board entitled Wayward Stars - Group A in the next 24 to 48 hours. Please keep all in character AND out of character posts to that topic. Use quoting or change text colour to denote out of character, as it will prevent the FaD board from getting cluttered and also save me bouncing between posts. One sort of rule we will be adhering to is post time limit. I know life gets crazy and we all have responsibilities, but if you don't think you can post for more than a full 24 hour period please let me know in advance - it stops poor characters being relgated to watching things happen or not getting a say in matters as I can cheekily mention them in things even when you're not able to fully play it out. 

 

Well that should teach us to read the opening post, group A is up already with all five players.

 

And our GM wants to keep IC and OOC in one thread. I assume we'll be putting all OOC into a quote 

 

Like this

 

since otherwise it will get really cluttered.

Ok, here's what I have for Jaelan Dahr so far.

One thing I thought about, and have included in his obligation, is that he recently learned about the ancient Jee'dai civilization and wants to learn more than just the small kernels of information he's found so far....

Thoughts?

So, from what I am hearing torture is a no no (who woulda guessed :mellow: ​). Therefore, considering Embeetoo begrudgingly takes orders from the one in charge over him there is an extremely high chance of no torture going on and if for some reason said leader goes full Jigsaw on us any torture that might happen will be merely hinted at and not seen on screen or heard in the background. However, just because of his personality and drive for efficiency he may suggest torture even though he will be immediately turned down.

 

 

Also Shy Iron ( ;)) I'm EST as well.

 

 

As for the Nova Freighter I believe it is definitely unique and I appreciate the deckplan that goes along with it. I'm on the same page with you when it comes to CEC, they just seem so overused. Though Embeetoo is not "proficient" with astrogation, mechanics or computers he still has an Intellect of 5 which could help fill in whatever gaps we need when it comes to those fields (albeit he won't be very flashy and he's a terrible cook :(). I still love my Wayfarer but it doesn't have the best handaling and I love the customizability and size of the Nova.

 

I vote yes on the Nova.

I'm sorry, I couldn't follow the thread during the last two days. If there is still room, I would like to cooperate with other applicants for group B in order to make a suitable backstory.

 

Edit: also, why do people keep calling you 'Iron'?

No clue! Shlambate started it, and it seems to be spreading.

To be honest, the first time I did it it was on accident (Page 3)...but the last post was on purpose  :P.​

 

 I'll stop if you wish.

This is only a second draft so be gentle on the grading curve! Figured I'd take the Lightsaber and just explain how he has no money on a different way. But it was fun writing up a character even if I don't get in! ;)

Weapons Dealer, Thief, Hacker, Collector, Liar and Family man are all words you could use to describe the Devaronian known as Xylas Novar. For years he has bought and traded illegal weapons across the galaxy, selling always to the highest bidder. Xylas has worked with the Hutt Cartel, the Black Sun and just recently the Empire. In a business like his you sell to whomever's willing to pay.

He wasn't always a Scoundrel though, he started life on Devaron, touched by the force. The Jedi sensed this and wanted to take him to teach him the ways of the force. But this was not to be, for his parents objected and the Jedi departed. For a while after the Jedi left Xylas, his mother and his younger brother were living rather normal lives with their father adventuring and bringing back treasures; Life was good, until one day he vanished. Their mother grew ill with grief, so it left Xylas and Corr to care for by whatever means necessary. They resorted to theft, doing anything from hacking bank accounts to siphon small amounts as to be unnoticed, to playing mind tricks on the simple minded. When Xylas' mother finally passed the two set out leaving Devaron behind, determined to make a fortune.

Years passed their business boomed selling illegal "goods" to whomever would buy and when the Clone Wars began, Xylas would find himself all over the Outer Rim, selling weapons to whichever side Separatist, Republic sympathizer it didn't matter. It was also around this time that Xylas would come across a Lightsaber as a "gift". He was always fascinated with the force and Jedi and he had the powers so why not take one from an unsuspecting sod. If the Jedi couldn't keep him from taking why shouldn't he have it.

Not everything he did was about business in the middle of the Clone War, Xylas would meet his wife. After a very lucrative weapons deal with Ziro the Hutt at his palace in Corusanct, Xylas would make his way back to his brother's ship, as he spotted a young Devaronian woman who had her purse stolen. He got the bag back and long story short that's how he met and eventually married the Junior Senator of Devaron.

He now had a purpose again like he did his mother before he would spend his time and effort making money to support his family to support Kara, and then the War ended and there were no Separatists and there was no Republic, only an Empire remained. Xylas was in the Outer Rim when the party started, but he felt odd as if something horrible had just happened, fearing the worst he headed straight to Corusanct to meet with Kara.

When he returned to his Kara's apartment he would be greeted by a Jedi Master along side his wife. They both explained how the Empire had ordered the death of all Jedi for treason against the newly Crowned Emperor, the Jedi stated he would pay for safe passage to a planet still untouched by the Empire. Kara wanted to leave Corusanct for she felt that if the Emperor was going to kill Jedi that it was unsafe for them to start a family she suggested return to Devaron.

And so began the most grueling few months of Xylas and his brother's life escorting a fugitive Jedi across the stars avoiding well traveled hyperlanes to make their way home. It was during this time Xylas would ask for training with a Lightsaber, simply to know how to use the blade. He wanted to know because he had the force. Upon hearing the request Master Ordo agreed questioning not how Xylas acquired a Lightsaber.

In the last 4 years before present Xylas and his brother split after about 12 years of working together, differing opinions on whether they should work with the empire. In the end it was Xylas' insistence that the Empire wouldn't screw him over that bit him in the ass. He's spent the past two years on Ord Mantell after a bad deal where the Empire stole from him. With his brother gone he was unable fight off the Stormtroopers he just lost it all. Now he just wants to get back to Kara and their child, to see them in person, not through hologram.

Sorry to bother, but I'd like to ask for a clarification: how much bonus Obligation can I get in exchange for starting XP?

 

Also, do I have 9000 credits to spend on equipment or 9500?

 

I am finalising the equipment right now.

 

Edit: http://swsheets.com/c/pgqmtzsjr-virion-tormal

Will edit as needed.

It seems i have a problem. I just got word that we are entering into crunch time in my work place which is not going to leave much time for me in the coming weeks so if something changes i would be happy to join later but i don't see how i will be able to participate now :( (****).

 

I think this also frees up space in the second group for Shlambate to join (to keep it under 6) and also for eryrwyn to play a 'Face' instead of my characters.

 

Sorry group B, Team Rocket rules!

I think we are all doing 10xp for 10 obligation (though I could be wrong).

You have 9500 from what I've seen: 500 to start plus the cost of a saber(though you don't need to pick a saber obviously)

I hope this helps

Hello again everyone, and thank you for being so patient. I have just touched down in Dubai, where I have a layover for a couple of days (and thankfully a place with great air conditioning so I don't explode like Alderaan from the heat). Catching up on the posts...
 

What a great little ship! It seems that it has three votes out of five - where do the other two sit with it being something you may get or find in your adventure?

 

 

That... that cockpit really is in that little wing-looking bit. Welp.

...I like it.

Me too. Though I imagine parking would be a nightmare! 

 

 

 

Group 1, question—what's everybody's time zone? I'm in EST, which means that right now it's... coming up on 2 am.

Um. I should probably be sleeping. >_<

I'm on GMT +0.

 

I travel a lot (hence being wayward) so my timezone changes frequently. Put me down as GMT +/- X for now! 

 

 

One more thing. Could I suggest that the two groups have separate OOCs? It will get very confusing when people are suggesting ships and you're not sure which group they belong to or who has said what  :D

Once we being in the IC topic, the Group A OOC will be confined to that thread (as it appears you've seen in the opening post here! Sorry, I should have made an update post about that change!)
 

 

Ok, here's what I have for Jaelan Dahr so far.

That would be more of a Motivation - less an Obligation, unless perhaps someone else has tasked him with finding more out as a last wish? I can't see any background information on the SWSheet link, and don't want to assume one way or the other, but usually Obligations are something relatively neutral or negative to the character - like taking care of a family, having an addiction to deathsticks, so forth and so on. 
 

 

 

I'm going camping so I may be unresponsive for 24-48 hours


Have fun!

 

Yes, please do! Watch out for bears if they're local! 

 

I'm sorry, I couldn't follow the thread during the last two days. If there is still room, I would like to cooperate with other applicants for group B in order to make a suitable backstory.

Lovely! I will be all hands on deck organizing Group B as soon as I am done setting up the post for Group A - which will also leave this topic almost entirely at the hands of B. 

 

 

So who all is in the B group?

I need to double check this myself!

That's awesome! Is it for your job? 

Also I only choose the coolest and most ungainly ships! It seems Star Wars loves to put cockpits in really awkward places, but the good news is there is an escape pod at the back of that little strut thing the cockpit is on, and one on the other side too.

Well, I was looking at it as more of an OCD kind of thing, if there's a chance to find something more out, he has an Obligation to find that out. :)

I'll adjust it to part of his Motivations and come up with another minor Obligation.

Also, I took it as 5 obligation for +5 XP, and 5 for +1000 credits for a Debt 10, and New Obligation 5. Is that ok?
