Is there still room for one more player? I have someone from my real life gaming group who has expressed an interest in joining.

It might take him a few days to get up to speed, but he's been a dependable player in many of the play-by-post games I've run in the past.

Hi All,

I will get this game up and running by September 1st. Just taking a little time to get everything set up. Besides this allows time for any stragglers to create PCs and join in. Ideally we will have 8 PCs and I will play 4 of the NPCs of Panic Squadron.

Thanks for your interest.

Matt M

Yes there is room for another player.

Best,

I'll be sure to let him know that he's welcome to join. I expect that he'll have a character ready to play within a week if he makes up his mind to join.

Have you got a forum lined up for play yet? You might consider getting that set up and starting a Cantina thread for the characters to interact before the game. It would give us all a chance to get to know our characters.

Yup, feel free to use my forum.

I think I'd be interested in playing. I'll take the female/Twi'lek spot if no one's taken either of those yet.

Female/Twi'Lek spot is yours. You can choose whether or not she is the girlfriend of the squad leader or not. I will leave that up to you. Please send me the character sheet when you have the chance.

I was thinking of running this game in the Play by Post section. Is there a benefit to running it in another forum??

Jarred Shintos was born on a small out of the way planet. He grew up loving the outdoors. As such he was always participating in sports, hiking, camping and generally whatever he could do outside. He won the Tri cup, an Triathlon that anyone native to the planet is welcome to participate in. He usually tries to find time to go back to the planet on an annual basis to compete again, but he only trained hard enough to win it once. When he turned 18 he was enrolled in the military academy.

Every member of his planet must enroll there after they graduate high school and serve in the military for 2 years afterward. He, unlike most of his peers, spent a full 7 years a school learning. He started by studying medicine, which lead his studies to learning about different species and their cultures. Once he completed both those degrees he wanted to learn how to fly so he could go out and explore the galaxy. He was always very shy and didn’t socialize much with his classmates, so he didn’t have an attachment to stay on his planet once his 2 years of military service was up. He went out into the galaxy wanting to help people. He quickly joined up with the rebellion once he learned of Alderaan; he wanted to stop whatever organization that would do such a thing. He quickly found out that he had a knack for flying snub-fighters, able to fly anything that can make it off the ground with relative ease.

He fell in love with a med-tech, Lianne Brennan, while helping in the ER during a raid by the Empire. He was shortly recruited to Panic Squadron for his eclectic talents, but he doesn’t really fit in with the other rough pilots. Jarred acts as an in the field advisor /medic when sent out on missions, and as Intelligence officer / Doctor when back at the base. He does not mind that this means he does not have as much down time as the other pilots, and since the Rebellion is nice enough to assign his Fiancée Lianne to the squadron’s support staff it means he gets to spend much of his on duty time with her. He is looking forward to their wedding in 2 months’ time, and hopes all his squad mates will be present at the ceremony.

Approved! What color skin is she?

Squad leader is an NPC. It's up to you whether she is his girlfriend or not. I can write it either way. I can always have the squad leader's girlfriend be a human female instead.

I should have the remainder of the squadron written up by next week.

What sort of posting frequency are you shooting for?


Posting frequency will be twice a week I would imagine.

I'm interested in this game but I may not always be able to meet the post frequency requirements.

Would it be possible to play a secondary character like an astromech or something?
