This is going to be a game run on Roll20 using either G+ hangouts or Skype. Any questions let me know.

Quote:


Description: The Yuuzhan Vong invade forty-four years earlier than in the New Jedi Order books, prior to the Battle of Coruscant (between the end of Clone Wars and the beginning of Revenge of the Sith). The setting takes place two years later. The galaxy has changed quite in a but in that time. Anakin now openly married to Padme and the Skywalker twins now two years old, has stepped down as the liaison between the Galactic Republic, now governed by the new chancellor Bail Organa, and the splintering Jedi Order.

Yoda has stepped down from running the Jedi Council after having a disturbing Force vision. Mace Windu has taken over this leadership position and placed Obi-Wan-Kenobi on the council as his right hand man.

Palpatine, after taking a sizable fleet and resources has relocated to Dagobah with Yoda to start the Bendu-Jedi philosophy. This new direction in the Force appears to have a greater effect on the Yuuzhan Vong. Some Jedi and Padawan learners leave the Jedi Order to learn under these two masters.

Young Jedi Knights are suggesting to Anakin he should start a New Jedi Order, one free of the hypocrisy and dogma of the old order.

While confidence in the Jedi Order erodes in the face of the Yuuzhan Vong, the now ally of convenience, Confederacy of Independent Systems continues under the command of Count Dooku and his apprentice Ventress while Greivious commands the vast droid armies.

In Hutt space, the families begin to spend freely from their coffers, hiring ships and mercenaries as well as unveiling their Shadow Fleet for the first time.

As allies of convenience maneuver against one another, while still battling the Yuuzhan Vong onslaught, the players are thrust into a familiar yet very different and dangerous Star Wars universe where they are the heroes!

What I Expect: There is a lot of action in this setting, but it will have a ton of roleplaying in it as well. I am looking for interesting player character concepts and players who will play in the first person and keep the meta-mechanics (out of game discussion) to a minimum. I expect players to bring energy to the table and be ready to add to the descriptive narrative of the game.

What You Should Expect: This will be adventurous and action oriented. This is a new setting for you, so pay attention and look for me to ask you questions that help me detail the galaxy. I will call upon you to add to the narrative, describe things your character sees and above all I will expect you to play your character. I do not need an essay of your character but I would like some background, personality, goals, secrets, and a physical description.

Start Date: February-01
Rule System: Star Wars D6 REUP by West End Games
Running Time: 2 + hours
System Knowledge: None
Minimum Maturity Level: 18+

No problem, sounds fun. Wish I could be consistently free at 11:30 in the morning.

Sounds interesting. But just curious: Do you know many people off work at Mondays at 11:30AM CST

Nope, Daniel is running the 11:30AM slot and that is mostly Euros and people who have an odd schedule. I am thinking of running the game at night for the US players and those with a more traditional schedule.

Wow.

This sounds like a potentially explosive and phenomenal game!

My work schedule actually DOES give me Sundays and Mondays off. However, I do not, as yet, have unlimited internet, so playing for two plus hours with voice, and possibly video, isn't yet an option for me. However, I'm going to be moving, probably sometime in the next month, and the place to which I'm moving does have unlimited cable internet. So, when I'm there, I can probably play, but I'll be better able to deal with the 11 am CST schedule than the 11 pm one.

If the game doesn't get started before I've moved, I'm hoping you can keep a slot open for me. That, or fill your game up, but figure on me joining after you're already established and running, and so my character could conceivably hook up with the party at some point into the game.

If that's something that would be acceptable, please let me know. Or, even if it's not; I certainly don't want to put you in a bad spot, or pressure you into a situation you'd rather not run. But this sounds really, REALLY fun.

Now, I have to ask because I've never heard of it before...what's Roll20?
