Ah. I guess I could have been more clear in my premise. My main point was just to question if any GM would allow the same template to be reused verbatim in the same campaign universe. I think that would be silly, but it seems that some GMs would disallow certain templates from even being a player option because it being reused would be silly (1) as if the GM had no authority to just require the second PC to make some changes so it is not identical and (2) as if some templates would be somehow be ok to be repeated identically while others aren't.


Interstingly enough, and perhaps not surprisingly, for me, its really hard when a character dies because I have to quickly whip up a mew one if I want to rejoin the game. I can say that everytime I can recall doing this, the game just lost its thrust for me. It was like just going through the motions.

If the Ewoks were from the same clan, leaving on the same ship. And maybe they didn't stowaway, maybe they traded with a smuggler who was on Endor's moon to harvest fungus to make the spice Rockna blue. Or maybe they were live captured by a hunter who sold them to a private collector or a zoo, etc.

I've had a lot of people play Ewoks, myself included, there's different ways to get them off Endor's Moon.

Just because they left the planet the same way doesn't mean they have the same backstory. What did they do for their clan? Hunter? Shaman? Farmer? Builder? What was their family life like?


Thing is, how well known to the universe WAS endor, before the empire put the DS2 there??


Legends has it well enough known to be a designated nature sanctuary during the Republic... not well known, but it wasn't a completely obscure ball that no one had heard of before the base was put there.

Well, as per that article
Quote:
Endor was set aside as a protected nature reserve during the Galactic Republic, giving it the name Sanctuary Moon. Few spacers had ever heard of Endor, let alone visited the moon. Of those who had, there were two types: those who continued on their way, not wanting to waste their time on such an unimportant puffball of a moon and those who had crash-landed in the forests due to the stellar anomalies, such as the Endor Gate black hole, in the area. These travelers were forced to scrabble for food and shelter along with the natives.

As ships disappeared in the region, the Endor moon earned a reputation as a "desert island in space," and was usually given a wide berth.


Certainly seems though it might have been known about, it was avoided like the plague.
