I noticed that "The Dark Times" didn't appear to be catching on, and so decided that I wanted to try a different, new idea. I apologize if it's been proposed before, but my expansive poking around hasn't revealed any traces of it, thus...

How does this sound for an RPG? Set during the Yuuzhan Vong war you portray a character on a planet in Vong territory. You can choose to be a "new" Rebel Alliance character, inserted through Wedge Antilles, a member of the resistance taken from the local populace, a soldier who never got off the ground, a simple survivor with no interest in fighting, a Peace Brigade officer, or a Yuuzhan Vong. If anyone thinks of a neat idea for another genre of character they can feel free to offer it to me.

Characters can be on the same planets, or even in the same cells, and can operate together or independently. If anyone would like to propose an overall plot arc (Beyond what the NJO already includes) that can also be incorporated into the RPG.

This one wouldn't be quite so structured as Zoot Wars is, and would be more of a "Hey, the RPG section was updated! *Reads newest post* Alright, then! *writes up their own post*" Updates can be as short or long as necessarry, though I will stress that good spelling and grammar are always appreciated in posts. Who thinks that it's a good idea and wants in? State a character, species, planet or operation, and possibly home planet if you want to take part in it, by the way. If you have other ideas, such as, say, Elegos, who didn't really die, but was replaced with another Camaasi's skeleton be Shedao Shai just to screw with Corran, those will probably also be accepted.

I don't mean to make too many rules in here, and I want to keep it free-flowing. Other than that, havvat it!

... Oh, and one other rule. *Glances up* :roll: Please, let's try to limit the number of Jedi. These things seem clogged with 'em when we include too many...

OOC: *Raises hand* Oooh, oooh! Pick me! Pick me!

I'm up for this RP ... no character just yet though, I'll probably take on a usual persona of being a grunt just trying to stay alive ... not sure of much else right now. That is, unless I have two characters 8O

I'd really like to have a character on Coruscant after its fall, maybe by himself - maybe not, other players can choose whether or not they want to be apart of that.

My other character, however, would be the primary character with interactions between other characters more likely.
I'll get back to you on these guys :wink:

Baljos is a character anyone who wants to utalize can utalize, I suppose. Another good one I thought of is escaped slaves- they have the coral implants, meaning that they have to avoid the Yuuzhan Vong, but they are, in effect, free...

I've got a kind of creative persona for myself: Krassus Ordo. A Mandalorian Protector who wears the distinctive Mandalorian Shock Trooper Armor of such Mandalorians as Boba Fett. Whichever planet I decide to place him on he can have gotten stuck on as a result of intelligance gathering for the Mandalorian cause, whether they particularly want it from him or not.

I've done a fair amount of research through Wookiepeida on the Mandalores, and recognize that their seeing melee combat as the ultimate form of honerably battle would get a fair number of them killed were they too engage the Vong in, say, vibro-sword/blade-to-ampistaff combat. Krassus, being a bastard child of clan Ordo and an exhile, sees little reason to be honerable in combat, and as a result primarily fights with ranged weapons.

His choice combat weapons are a pair of heavy Manadlorian blasters, though he also has a long-range sniper rifle in his now-ruined ship which he kept there in case it would become necessarry to use it. He has a fairly low rank so far as the Mandalorian caste system goes, but a fair level of combat experiance from a combination of asassination attempts and duels fought due to his bastard status in clan Ordo.

Too corny, or okay? I kind of want a Mandalorian character just because Mandalorians are rather spiffy, but if other people think it's a dumb idea I'll swap out for something differant. I have large amounts of creativity, just a complete innability to channel it into good, rational ideas.

Ok, so you've obviously started the RP. What's the time frame here? You're on Nal Hutta, while evacuating it ... so I'm guessing around Edge of Victory in the NJO books?
Where The Hutts betray the Vong etc. Or iis it another time?

I stuck myself on Nal Hutta strictly because that's where I personally want to be. The timeline can accelerate as becomes necesarry, and people's stories can even take place during differant time frames if need be.

I personally chose Nal Hutta because of the wookiepedia article on it. Apparently the place gets turned into a very green planet. It gets some resistance supplies, and I figured it could be some Vong testing for planet shaping techniques intended for use on Coruscant. *shrugs* You can be wherever you want to be and whenever you want to be, though.

Double post of revival! Or something like that.

Anywho, figured we can use this thread as the OOC thread to discuss where things are headed.

Alright. Right now I'm chatting with SOCL with regards to how the Yuuzhan Vong plan to dig in while in the Y'Toub (sp?) system. What we've decided upon is a sort of knock-off of the way some of the Japanese were during World War II; even after the war officially ended with the retaking of Coruscant, some of the fanatic Yuuzhan Vong are still holding out with all they have, and are willing to fight to the death. The Y'Toub system is going to be one of those systems of hold outs, partly because it's somewhat holy, having been used as a testing site for some of the planet-shaping techniques that went into Coruscant.

We're still ironing out details, plus we're trying to figure out which planet will be liberated first, and in what ways... And who the big commanders will be when all is said and done. Right now we've determined that the main battles will be ground-side (Whoopdiedoo, I know), and that's about it.

That's not to say the space battle can't be awesome and marvelous, but it seems like the most logical thing for the Vong to do since they will have "home field advantage."
