You once heard it said "You can find anything you need on Couruscant,  and find anything you want on Nar Shadda.  The price changes, depending on location".  The smugglers moon has always been a center of commerce.  As the eons progressed that commerce shifted to the blacker sides of the market.  The Hutts who controlled the moon never seemed to care about the morality of the business' only the profits.  The empire came to power.   A shining light of order and law, cleansing the chaos from the galaxy. 

They tried shining that light into the gloom of Nar Shadda four years ago.  You were there.  You stood on the street looking up at the darkened sky.  Just barely visible beyond the haze you saw the lines of turbolaser beams and the flashes from concussion missiles.  The empire came to destroy the entire city moon.  Burn the scum from the face of the galaxy.  The scum responded.  You knew some of the crews up there.  The ones who fought to defend their home, their investment, their future.  Seems like they won, despite the losses.  After all, here you are, standing on Nar Shadda.  The place is still as gloomy as ever, literally and figuratively.

Over the intervening years you've kept track of whats been going on with the wrecks from that battle. In typical order the empire came sweeping in after their "defeat". They must have made some sort of deal with the Hutts because before any locally based salvage crews could move in the whole battlefield was tractored out on to one of the smaller moons of Kiskua.  Right next to where the local Imperial Task Force maintains its orbit.  The official reason was to keep any "imperial technology" out of the hands of the civilian populous.  Who knows that may even be the real reason.  You've looked at the long range scans and, near as you can tell, all the obvious imperial wrecks have already been cleaned up, but none of the rest have.  Seems a bunch of rusting smugglers vessels don’t look all that interesting to the deep pockets of the empire.

You know there is something worth your time out in that morass of twisted metal and irradiated scrap.  And as luck would have it, some major dust up out in the Abrion sector has the empire hopping.  The star destroyer and her escort ships all jumped out of the Y'Tub system less than an hour ago.

There are some others who you've talked to, brainstormed with them on how to access the wrecks.  Seems they had the same idea, cause you're now meeting with them to figure out the details and go out there and get what you want.

If you want to do something from a third party source you need to run it by me first.

In case it was not clear in the intro. My thought for this campaign is that the group does not start off with their own ship. They are going out to try and get one.

Depending on what characters I get I will use some variation of the homestead rules from Far Horizons.

I'm comfortable crafting a character around any role, but my top ideas right now are a Human Hired Gun/Heavy on a hutt hit squad, Duros Explorer/Driver stranded on planet, Bothan Bounty Hunter/Skip Tracer independent private eye.

Any of those would probably work just fine.  Only Weedles has selected a character. That being an Ithorian  Hired Gun / Enforcer.

Awesome, I'd like to use my female Kadas'sa'Nikto named K'wad'randroom Tox. She prefers being called Tox. She is a Martial Artist who has had to make it on her own. She is looking to get off planet and try to find her mentor. She is looking for anything that she can sell to help her get a ship or a crew she can ride with.

I can send you her .xml file.

He escaped from a hutt's enslavement into the depths of the smuggler moon's bottom levels. 

He works pick up hours at Shug Nix's space barn.

He's Omwati

Sounds like a good character concept.  Send me the sheet or just a breakdown of how you spent your starting XP.   The website swsheets.com seems to also work.

Remind me what an Omwati is? (I just googled it)

 

So since you want to play a race that hasn't been released in an official source you are just using the racial characteristics of a Chiss.  Is that right?

I now have character concepts from 5 of you.

Ithorian Hired Gun Enforcer

Human Bounty Hunter Gadgeteer

Omwati Technician Outlaw Tech

Nictu Bounty Hunter Martial Artist

Our fifth player, @Hinklemar gave me several but wanted to know the party composition before he chose one of his options.

Seeing as we are about to have 5 players and possibly a 6th let it be clear that starting obligation is set at 10.  if you really feel the need to buy more obligation than that go for it.  You can even buy more than 10 but it will be triggering throughout the story and your strain threshold will be effected if you trigger.

No chiss was randomly chosen before I knew you could type in the species on swsheets.com

I used 100xp 123222 free rank of computers or mechanical, and a bonus die to visual based perception checks

 

Omwat was used to "recruit" and "develop" engineers for. Tarkin's super weapon program. Omwati children were used as fodder in the program. They had technological and musical adept minds. They had feather like hair, blue skin and large eyes... Slight of build.

I am fine if you re-skin an official race but I don't want you to make the stats for one up.  If you could find one that you think fits, that would work best.

Here is Khaine Soldarian, Human Bounty Hunter and Gadgeteer.  Obsessed with technology Khaine became a bounty hunter in order to get access to technology and to have the freedom to play with some of the more fun toys.  Unfortunately someone sabotaged his last job and Khaine barely got away with the clothes on his back.  Now Khaine is staying one step ahead of the guild who wants the advance they gave him back.

Ok folks, I have a busy holiday weekend ahead of me so I don't expect to be able to start posting in full for this until Monday. 

Since you wont be starting off with a ship I am going to have you all start off with a Homestead or Business as detailed out in the Far Horizons book.  I can come up with something if you need me to, but it is supposed to be a part of your characters.  So by all means start talking. 

I know that a Homestead is sort of weird for Nar Shadda but you could easily translate that over to a specific neighborhood or something like that.

Some ground rules: I am going to be keeping track of your characters in my local copy of Oggdudes program.  So make sure you post to me whenever you buy something or use XP.

I would like as much out of character discussion to take place in this thread.  Questions about the scene should be here but actions and dialog will be in the forthcoming IC thread.

Try and post in this thread more than not.  The PM system work well on this site but keeping track of everything will be easier on one thread.
