Hi All,

I will shortly start a PbP Star Wars game using 2.5 Revised Edition +/- a few house rules.
It will be an Epic Classic Star Wars, with Veteran player that will take place around Yavin time, at this time I believe probably slightly before. I will include everything one may like in star wars: Space, strange worlds, alien species, epic fight, the Force, the struggle against the Empire...

I'm looking for a team of 5 to 6 players with the minimum requirements:
- 1 Ship Captain, the Boss of the team, pro-Alliance
- 1 Jedi, can be anything from a feeble padawan to a Knight. He's of course a purge survivor, fugitive to the Empire.
- 1 Pilot
- 1 Tech Guy
- A good mix of Combat People, Faces, Tech (including First Aid!), all genders accepted!

Not every player need to be pro-Alliance, their loyalty can be to just the team leader.
I like good role-playing with great personalities, and such thing will be rewarded.


Veteran characters (should I say Heroes?) need to be created following the Gamemaster Handbook 2nd Ed chart with 60D. (edit: gone up to 75D including the attribute dice)
Max Attribute Dice: Specie +6D (*I allow 12D for Twi'lek instead of the stated 11D)
Skills count as 1D per die above Attribute
Specializations count as 1D per die above Skill
3 pips count as 1D
Force Skills count as 2D
Force Points count as 1D
Character Points count as 1D per 5 points.
I'll limit to one skill at +4D above attribute, and 4 at +3D. Limited to 5 Force Points and 20 Character Points.

Pick a Template, stated skills are skills the character is trained in whether or not dice have been added to it, plus which ever skill pips or dice has been added to.


The synopsis: A group of SpecOps is drawn into an Epic quest that can change the face of the Galaxy forever. The Force has picked them already, whether they succeed or not will only depend of their skills and guts.

Legend of the Crystals

"A small immaterial being sits on a crystalline stone, contemplating a tiny creature flying around him. The iridescent specter emits a feeling of great wisdom, he whom was once a Jedi Master.
'Patience, my dear friend. Destiny's framework is in place now. The Force has chosen its Champions. May It be with them to stop the evil schemes of the Emperor's War-hound.' "

It's how you count your dice to see the character level. example:

Young Jedi
DEX 3D
Blaster: pistol 4D
Dodge 4D
KNO 2D
Language: Shiriwook 3D
MEC 2D
PER 4D
Persuasion 5D
Persuasion: Oration 6D
VIG 2D
TEC 2D

C 2D
S 3D
A 2D

FP: 2
CP:5

A quickly made young Jedi; His level is calculated as followed:
Attribute dice: 15D
Skills: 2D (persuasion 1D, dodge 1D)
Specializations: 3D (persuasion 1D above the skill, blaster and language defaulted to attribute)
Force Skills: 14D ([2+3+2]x2)
Force points: 2D (1D per point)
Character Points: 1D (1D per 5 points)

So this character has a starting level of 37D


I believe this method, by no mean the most accurate or fair (starting Jedi vs Regular Character) or well though of, will allow all players to be balanced without them being all the same.
A good method to keep Jedi and non Jedi playable together, notably when the Jedi becomes advanced.

No I don't know yet.
Either WEGForum, or a dedicated webpage. I'll see with what players I have.

Am I interfering with any board rule? My apologies if so.

Hmm, I might be down with this. If you don't run it here, I'm certainly willing to set you up with a subforum on my messageboard's PbP section ( http://z6.invisionfree.com/Hotaru_no_Hishou/ ).

I'm working on a character for another game at the moment, but I'll put some thought into what I'd want to play here. I know Vong is vying for the Jedi, so I'll leave that alone Smile Has anyone claimed any of the other positions yet?

Ankhanu,
I have what I need to open a private board, thanks for the offer though.
All positions are still open, including the leader position. Though we have our Tech Guy now.

Ok, I haven't got many response for the game yet, and what I got was all pretty original, I thought I was missing a bit of the 'classic' star wars feel; where are my smuggler, brash pilot, failed Jedi, retired senator, sexy Twilek, mercenary?

Nevertheless, I'm sure the crew will turn out ok. To inspire people a bit I've made some character art. You can pick the one you want, send me a possible background and some stats, et voilą!

And if nobody want to play them, well I'm sure they'll be of use on other games.

So here it comes:
