    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.

    Not a requirement of course, but there's nothing wrong with maximum input... makes for a more vivid picture! :)

    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...

    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'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...

    I say we play it in the Episode VII era. That way whatever predictions or speculations we make about the timeline can be dashed against the rocks of the movie! No? Oh, okay. The time between 4 and 5 sounds great.

    I've enjoyed Rebels. I can see where some people are coming from saying it's pretty juvenile, but that doesn't mean I necessarily agree. Some of the best stuff I've seen in recent years has been "for kids". For me, the show's tapping into some deep childhood nostalgia stuff, occasionally even...

    Rebels is certainly enjoyable. It's the kind of show where you make some popcorn and have a good time. I love Clone Wars too, but it occasionally took itself too seriously (as mandated by the source material). Rebels is pure fun, so far.

    It's all in the timing! DogSolitude was asking me when in the timeline our adventure (campaign?) will take place. I was thinking between IV and V (when EotE is 'officially' set), but I'm open to suggestions. I'm basically good with anything in the Rebellion era, since going Old Republic or New...

    Whatever you do, don't tell everyone you've got a character and then wait for a month before revealing it. I hate when people do that.
