I posted that a little bit late....
No worries. Happens to me all the time.
I was just trying to help... I did my best at typing...
But anyway, back to the serious. How is the senate going on, commander?
Speaking of which...technically speaking, at least as far as the RPGs (Shadow Wars and Aflame) go, EUC and SWC Force Users are around at the same time. At least, I assume so considering that the NJT was playing as their own group in Shadow Wars at one point.
And I only made the AJO since Danny wouldn't be allowed in the NJO and I don't have time for the NJT
Like I said, no worries.
It goes, matters are proceeding at the usual snail like pace for any legislative body.
Sky Guy, Aflame and Shadow Wars aren't linked though so what happens in one has no effect on the other. Kind of irrelevant if members from one group are in each game.
As for the reasoning behind the AJO, it makes sense to me. Seems like Chewie is in the same boat.
Good to hear.
I only used Aflame since Danny is Shadow Wars Danny, and Sinre has Malkuth
Different time period though.
Different games. Same basic model for the characters to be sure, but different games. Basically they are in AU from each other.
That's what I assumed at first. Then you have Sinre making various references to Shadow Wars. So:
Mesa confused by it still
(unless we are assuming an AU end to Shadow Wars, since this would take place after it ended. Which would make some sense)
A Shadow Wars still happened in the AU of Aflame (or is Shadow wars the AU of Aflame, depends on your point of reference I guess. ) ...maybe even many of the same events. But events going forward in Shadow Wars have no effect on Aflame and the events of Aflame have no affect on Shadow Wars. Think of it like the many AU episodes of Stargate. Same basic people and events, but slight differences.
That's what I started doing so I don't go:
that's the way I view all my RP's, even the ones with some of the same characters. Keeps things easier to explain if a foulup happens between the two.
EDIT: though to be honest I do try to keep things as close I can usually.
I stopped trying to keep continuity a long time ago.
You actually brushed off the same basic character too didn't you Gunny?
Basically. With some slight tweaks, since you weren't even on these boards the last time I used him in a game.
I say the more the better. Jedi = Jedi, as far as I'm concerned.
You all are a lot friendly than the NGE.
None are really necessary. It is not up to me who you want to "be" as a character here. You want to be a Jedi, you're a Jedi. I want to be a Mandalorian I'm a Mando. It's all pretty simple. I just got confused and thought you were looking to be a member of the SWC's official Jedi order, the NJT (New Jedi Trials) I mentioned earlier, as EUC/GoL ranks don't translate here. It allows for someone to have a Sithly and a Jedi type persona if they like. Jedi here, Sith there etc.
Shadow War and Aflame are perfectly in-sync, continuity-wise, and Shadow War is in sync with fifteen or so other RPs.
They are in sync yes, but I always viewed their "actions" as separate. For example one could plop their character from one into the other and "ignore" previous actions if they so wanted. Or is that mistaken Sinre?
Of course one could. But it always runs neatest when it's consistent.
Shadow War is at the beginning of 146 ABY, after all. Aflame is in 147 ABY.
Tight, mind you, but ho hum.
But you'll probably note that neither Malkuth or Vader references what happened in the Shadow War. Just vague-ness, which relates back to the SWC Senate competitions, more than anything.
I prefer to think of them as separate entities. Mostly because I haven't played Shadow War in years.
I agree, nicer when you can keep things neat and tidy. But I like vague-ness to keep things open, just in case.
I always like to be vague, especially when it comes to RPs.
