    Need to make sure I made this clear to everyone. There are two games running here. One is the pbp game. The other is the random late night games. They both have the same intro. You can use the same character in each so that allows you to get two games for one character creation. The pbp has...

    There are two things I have been thinking about. First is that I have a character description in mind. But she has a special set of armor that likely would not be available at the beggining of an EotE game. Are we allowed to bring a certain amount of equipment into the game as part of our...

    Yes, anywhere here, even this thread, would be just fine for now. When we get to rpol.net, every character gets their own bio page (separate from the Character Sheet, if I recall correctly). That's the perfect place to put background stories and character portraits.

    I think that if we get antsy about sharing what we write before NBT has a new home then we can post it in a new in-character thread, and that we can just move it over when it's time to move.

    So we could write a short "scene" that our character is involved in, that gives some flavor to our character, and hints about their nature?

    Yes... if, when we watch the first film, we're Luke, then we wouldn't be privy to the Greedo scene. But it sets up a lot about Han, and subsequently a third of the third film. So feel free to include anything you guys are comfortable with, for drama's sake! :)

    Or at least just enough to plant the seeds of good storytelling. There's no point to a character's secret if it's never used to create dramatic effect within the story (I'm looking at you, Albus!)

    I'm a hunka-hunka burnin' love. Can you put me in a silver-sequined jacket? :lol: Totally, DC! Whatever you guys would like to share. I can only assume if you guys have some deep dark secrets, you'll leave those out.

    As intriguing as the characters are so far, I'd also like to get physical descriptions of them so I could put together some artwork. I.J., is it okay if we share some pre-adventure prologues to cover some exposition?

    Without giving anything away, I do need you guys to all be together right from the get-go... there won't be any "you're in a tavern" scene. Hopefully that won't matter, 'cause there'll be ample opportunity to describe why you had joined up with the others in dialogue or flashback - even if it's the...

No long-term residence, no known accounts, and no known property ownership. She is a freelancer, traveliing from one job to...

    rpol.net looks good. The features seem ideally suited for gaming, and the scarcity of graphics will just be incentive to add our own! :) My vote is for present tense this time around. With Tapestry it made perfect sense to write everything in past tense. It had a more literary style in the...

    Well there's a reason most tabletops are in the first person. We will be directly controlling our characters, and waiting for everybody to make their move in turn so it makes sense. And the new site sounds nifty, even if I am a little loathe to abandon Tapestry's final resting place.

    I'm not going to reveal the premise ahead of time - all we need is the basics of why you guys are all working on the same ship. I'm afraid we will have to move, though; we need a dice roller, at least. So far, I'm pretty keen on rpol.net (it's where I was playing in that other EotE game). It's...

    I have a brief prologue piece for Dame Acklay that I'd like to type up, but I'm just trying to strike a balance with it so it doesn't reveal too much too early. I think part of the fun with this group will be having a bit of mystery among our characters that's revealed as obligations and plot...

    I want to see a good star wars movie again. They could call it "We promise no mididcholrians and Jar Jar" and I would take that as a step in a positive direction. As for how we all get into place, I'd like to hear DC's idea's about the character dynamic, and for IJ to set the premise, but I...

    I'm only interested in the title because I'm curious to see how the story fits that description. As as for our EotE game, I'm thinking about how it will start out. One idea I had would be that IJ would describe where we all meet, like the place, timeframe, etc., then we all write a little intro...

    I've heard all sorts of commentary on it, from disappointment that it doesn't match some fanboy expectation or that "VII" isn't promently displayed in a logo, to gushing that it's amazing and reveals so much about what we've got ahead of us, all with a great range of jokes in between. It seems to...
