A Long Time Ago...

Discussion in 'BOARDANIAN ROLEPLAY GROUP' started by Garner, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Okay gang, until such time as I feel inspired to churn out any more work on Alpha Polis, and until such time as the lot of us work something out about Ba's campaign, I feel we need to do something else to promote role playing.

    Specificly, we need to do a star wars role playing game. I've got a nice little adventure set to mind, and would be happy to run it for a small to medium sized group.

    Now, right now I'm pretty sure this is gonna have to be done over instant messages. I'm invisioning two to three hour sessions on saturdays, begining somewhere around 1 or 2 pm GMT. this is open to negotiation, but that's a time slot that grace and i are both available for. if it's utterly unacceptible to all you would-be jedi out there, we'll work something out.

    So... who's up for it?

    I'm down!!

    Huzzah! May the Force be with us!
  4. Orrdos God

    I tentatively agree to play
  5. Tephlon Active Member

    Hmm.. Saturday afternoon... Don't know if I can make that.

    Still, I'd love to play if possible.

    - Jedi/Padawan? Or do we get to be droids, bountyhunters, members of a family of crimelords, etc?

    - Original trilogy/All 6 films/Extended universe?

    - Do we get to discuss who shot first? ;-)
  6. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Han shot first.

    A jedi character is considered a padawan until he hits level 7, or maybe 8. i forget which.

    the basic classes are Jedi Guardian (combat focused jedi), Jedi Consular (force focused jedi), Soldier (combat specialist), Scoundrel (rogue character), Tech Specialist (depending on how you build the character, this one can be anything from a medic to an engineer), Force Adept (non jedi force user), and Nobel (a good 'interaction' based class). i think that's all of em in d20.

    you can be droids. you can be bounty hunters (i think there's a bounty hunter prestige class, actually), you can be a member of a family of crime lords, etc.

    the adventure i've got in mind is set in the old republic era, so 'extended universe', but not 100% accurate to cannon.
  7. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    went and checked, there's also a 'scout' class, bit of a sci-fi ranger i suppose. good for exploring new places.

    and there's a 'fringer' class, a good jack of all trades, usually from the outter rim.
  8. Roman_K New Member

    I'm in. Though the only time I can be on is Sunday.
  9. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    k. we'll look at doing it at Sundays starting from 3pm, gmt, probably running till 6 since that's when roman has to leave.
  10. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Om's out, Bauke and Ben are in.

    At present, roman's looking at playing some sort of droid, likely a fairly normal labor saving device that went rogue some how.

    Doorsh will be our resident jedi padawan.

    Ben, since he's open minded about getting a character assigned to him, can be a space faring captain hoping to strike it rich in the galaxy, but so far all he's managed to secure is his own little ship.

    i'll suggest, for ease of narrative, that ben and roman's characters already work together. doorsh's character, or his jedi master, hire the completed party to work together on a mission to be announced closer to play.

    grace, or a local friend of ours if he gets his act together and joins in, will be playing the other preassigned role, to be divulged later.

    bauke is free to pick from any possible career path.
  11. Roman_K New Member

    Yes, I was going to mention something about this at MSN, as droids generally needing an owner (or at least the appearance of an owner). I hope to have a character background ready sometime this week, or maybe the next. This one is becoming rather too busy...

    I'll talk it over with Ben once I finish writing my character background up to meeting him, at which point we'll work something out.
  12. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    if we don't have things ready for next sunday (the 18th), then it'll be march before we can get started. grace is only available on alternate sundays.
  13. Electric_Man Templar

    Are we playing tomorrow? (this question also brought to us today by Roman)
  14. Buzzfloyd Spelling Bee

    Yes! Please can someone remind Doors. 3.00 GMT.
  15. Roman_K New Member

    Excellent. I'll be there.
  16. Electric_Man Templar

    Roman has made the suggestion that we attempt to play every sunday or even on saturdays (when he is unavailable), if there is only one person missing, lest the game starts to lose momentum and grinds to a halt like the previous game.

    I don't mind, what do others think?
  17. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    the problem with playing every sunday is that guarantees grace misses half the sessions. i'm not really happy with that sort of idea. if it wasn't guaranteed to affect the same person every week, then it might be different.

    for the same reason, i'm not really keen on moving things to saturday, as that drops roman in it.
  18. Roman_K New Member

    Perhaps we could alternate on the weeks Grace can't make it? On time on Sunday, another on Saturday etc? It's not exactly fitting with our organization skills (or lack thereof ;) ) but we could give it a go. This way two people miss out, yes, but not as nearly as often. One week out of four.
  19. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    *Shrug* possibly. depends on if others are up for it and if others can accomodate it in their schedule.
  20. Tephlon Active Member

    Yeah. I installed AIM for this. I hate AIM.
    But the game is next week, right?
  21. Roman_K New Member

    *checks calendar*


    Um, requesting permission to be absent due to religious holiday.
  22. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    *shrug* game on if we've got everyone but roman, then. everyone else, please check the status of your back-up-bauke and doppleganger-doors.
  23. Tephlon Active Member

    Aw... Well, that was deserved, I guess.
  24. Electric_Man Templar

    Err... can't remember if I've said this already or not (sorry if I haven't), but I won't be available this sunday because of Scotland. If everybody else is there, I give you my oh so holy blessing to play without me.
  25. Katcal I Aten't French !

    Typical, blame it on Scotland eh... hah !
  26. Buzzfloyd Spelling Bee

    What has Scotland done to you, Ben?

    I can play tomorrow, but I will have to go at 3.45, because I have an extra rehearsal (due to missing one at Easter), so if everyone else is available early, that would be helpful.
  27. Electric_Man Templar

    It was the venue of a wedding, strange as that may sound in those heathen parts...
