I'm fairly new to the Pit, but have been playing D6 SW for about ten years and am thinking of GMing a PbP Freeform Campaign if there is enough interest. It will be in the Episode IV - VI era. Plot will flow from the characters, so good backgrounds, personalities, and objectives are required.

I'd be looking for 5-6 players, should have both on and off ship skills

Depending on the crew's choices various minor/major antagonists will become available if anyone wants to be Twisted Evil

House Rules:
Species from any WEG book or the WotC Ultimate Alien Anthology Allowed
Species + 6D attributes
10D in skills (max 2D above attr.)
10cp to start (can use to raise skills only after first CPs issued)
No parry skills, use Melee combat or Brawling
can also know 1 skill at attr level per 2d in attr.
other untrained skills will be more difficult or not useable

If you are interested, please post the type of character you want to play and I'll be able to give more details as to the start of the campaign so people can start character creation

Sweet, hopefully we'll get a couple more involved and see what people are interested in playing. I figured I'd leave it wide open since I'm not sure what everyone's been playing and enjoys, or what they haven't played yet that they have been wanting to try.

No problem, given the nature of the game, it should be easy to to work characters in over time, not everyone would need to be there at the start.

so Delkarnu, do you think you could inform us of what kind of campaign this is going to be? (rebel, merc, imp, etc)

With the gaming groups I'm in, we usually have all the players create characters and base the campaign from that. That way everyone can play what they want instead of trying to fill all the required roles for a campaign, and its a challenge for the gm to keep everyone interested. The only real requirement was one with piloting skills and a ship.

Example: a bounty hunter, a jedi, a escaped wookie slave, a tech, and a togorian searching for his mate, led to a campaign where we were tracking a illegal slaving operation. Once we found them, the togorian left the group and his player created a merc and we began hunting bigger bounties while we were hunted because the Jedi had attracted the attention of an inquisitor.

If the freeform idea sounds good to everyone, people can come up with character types and go from there. If people want more of a direction to go in, I'm leading towards a smuggler/underworld campaign but am completely open if anyone has a preference on what they'd like to play.

House Rules for Force Users:

Anyone can play Force Sensitives
Rebellion Era means hunted if known and limited access to training
1 power per pip in Force Skills at creation (6 max per Skill)
ignore 1 prereq with 3D willpower, 2 prereqs with 4D
any abilities in Cheshire and Gry's Force Powers PDF are allowed

I haven't played any games with custom powers yet, but I will allow them if they don't unbalance things. Please post customs skills wanted or link to existing discussion thread.

all the more reason to decide an era before i build a jedi Wink

ive been toying with a jedi fallen (or partial jedi) who can use his jedi powers to increase the effectiveness of his pheromones. he would be a Fallen conman Smile

the other idea im toying with ill have to discuss with Ankhanu first Smile

I like the classic era. I figured a good start would be about 4 BBY towards the end of the purge.

So I spoke with Ankhanu and he is all for my other idea. We are going to play a Troig. We will still use the 10D amongst ourselves, but i control one head, and he controls the other. two distinct personalities Very Happy

I'd say each of you get full attr dice and skill dice to spend, but your Str, Dex, and feet-based skills must match (dodge, running, sneak, climbing, etc)
