    Background ScrollThe Galaxy is in shambles. After the serious offensive from the Yuzhan Vong, the New Republic was reeling. The Empire, sensing an opprotunity to advance, moved forward and began occuping the worlds of the broken New Republic. The Battle between the two rivals grew increasingly ugly and brutal...with each side ahniliating eachother. From Dust all things are born...and to dust, all shall return.

    The Galaxy is leaderless...clans of smugglers and pirates rome the space lanes, which crime syndicates offer "protection" for, but at a high price.

    Never in all known history has the Galaxy been like this. All known Jedi are dead, having lost their lives to old age and war. Now, the fruits of that war lay before everyone...a lawless, orderless anarchy of society.

    Description of GameThis Roleplay is post NJO era. There is no Empire, nor Republic...nor even Yuuzhan Vong, though cells of all three might still remain. The galaxy is controlled by Darwinist laws...survival of the fittest.

    The Rules:
    No GM'ing. Violaters will be punished at the GM's descression

    Force Powers are limited...very few force charicters are around, and even if there are, there is no formal Jedi training. GM will decide what the limits of the Force are

    No large fleets. The only organized groups out there are Pirates. Their fleets consist of poorly maintained old battle ships. There will be no uber command ships like SSD's or Eclipse class SSD's...nor will there be any hi-tech warships.

    Charicters must be realistic. These are hard times. People have to kill to survive, money is scarce.

    Death happens...admit it and go on your way. You can post again under another charicter, but there will be no roll over on status. If you have accumulated a large following of smugglers or pirates, then when you come back, you do not get to automatically be in charge of them can join them but then the GM must decide where on the food chain of command you are.

    THE GM
    The GM will not play in the game...except for being the Crime Syndicate.
    The GM will control fate...can throw in mechanical problems, acts of God, will rule on weapons hits and so forth.
    the GM is all knowing, all seeing, all powerful, and once they have spoken, then the issue is over.
    More to come as the game gets bigger.

    These scoundrels work for the highest bidder. Running anything from slaves to weapons, many of these charicters die young. Do you have the guts to take on jobs against the Crime Syndicate? can you survive frequent pirate attacks, and make it to your destination in time for payment?

    Pirates prey off of the weak and stupid. These scalawags attack shipments, smugglers, and never take prisoners. They also lend out their services for payment, and can sometimes be seen destroying certain fleets of ships. HOWEVER, be wary when dealing with them...their word is never good enough.

    (SMALL) factions of Empire, Rebel, Yuuzhan Vong
    These are individual groups out there that remember the old days. They wish to have order restored throughout the galaxy, but have no resources with which to make a huge dent. All they can do is hope that one day, their cause will grow, and once again a government will form over the Galaxy

    Crime syndicates- can only be played by GM
    The Crime Syndicate is run by the Hutts. These Gangsters are enjoying their golden age...having no Empire, nor Alliance to compete with. They are hard businessmen, cold and calculating...the Galaxy would do best to stay out of their way.

    ...the game is currently Game Masterless...I would like one person to volunteer, send me a "resume" and I'll decide if you are fit and qualified for the position

    charicter profiles
    Description of appearance- Includes height weight, color, wardrobe, special markings etc...

    Biography: Born 23 years ago to a family that was ravaged by the Yuzzhan Vong. After the Republic Crumbled, his family was enslaved by the Vong, later freed, then betrayed by the Empire. With no where to go and the only surviving member of his family, Belivas turned to smuggling.

    Partner: A droid. It has the head and neck of an old C-series, the torso of an R7 unit, and the legs of a Gonk power droid. While this provides many advantages, as the droid is well versed in all things protocol, repair, language and astronavigation, it has some disadvantages too. The three parts of droids rarely agree on what to do, although the R7 droid usually wins rather quickly, somethimes by hacking his fellow droids. Also, it is truly one of the most obscure things you might ever see. It's designation is, creatively, C-R7-G, but it goes by the name Sarge.

    Goals: Numero Uno is surviving. A close second is $$.

    Wildwookie: Did I make the ship right? I assumed we could only start with a mark one powerplant. If that was wrong, tell me and I will make adjustments.

    Belivas was onboard the Deliverance when the call came through. There was a possible smuggling job availible on Nar Shadda.

    "Sarge, set a course for the Nar Shadda system, maximum speed." he said.

    "At once, sir." the protocol head responded. After chittering from the R7 parts, he shouted, "Start working on the astronav coords, you overgrown trash compactor!" With some convincing, the Gonk legs hobled over, and the R7 plugged in and plotted the course.

    "I believe this waste recepticle I was unfortunately attached to says he has inputed the requested coordinates." the C-series head said.

    "Stop arguing, you two. Strap down and prepare for lightspeed." Belivas replied.

    After a brief, electronic argument, the Gonk droid sealed itself to the floor. Belivas reached forward and pulled the activation levers, and the ship disappeared into supralight speeds.

    EDIT: Are we required to allow for travel time and for others to post? And how can JFettG start with a Class 3 Generator? Or others with Class 4s?

    EDIT TWO, ARRIVAL: Sarge informed Belivas that they would be coming out of lightspeed in a moment.

    "Disengage hyperdrive a half second early, Sarge." he said. Seconds later, the stars snapped to pinpoints.

    "This is the freighter Deliverance to the person that advertised for a smuggler. I have arrived to take the job." He recieved landing coordinates, and as he set down, he was slightly disappointed to see another ship already there.

    "Sarge, stay in the bridge and be ready for anything. Keep Emergency Power open just in case." Belivas said, and he departed the ship.

    Shad Ho came out of the run-down tapcaf in an offworlder's section of Nal Shadda. Informatio scrolled across his datapad, advertising a possible job.

    He was revolted at himself for sinking down to the level of taking a job for a Hutt, but credits had become scarce and his ship needed a new power generator. It was not a long distance to where the meeting point was said to be. Luckily, he was already on Nal Shadda, and so was not late in arriving at the meeting point in the spaceport. He checked his ship before meeting the hutt delegate to see if anyone had tried to break in. There had only been three attempts in the last hour. The thieves were not out in force, as he had feared.

    Shad Ho locked down his ship again, and then proceded to meet this Hutt delegate, only to find two other smuggling ships already waiting...

    bterrik say the other smuggler run up, and his muscles tensed. His had dropped instinctively to his blaster, but he stopped short of drawing it. He also saw one of the other smugglers sizing the others up. He did not look impressed with Belivas. Raising his comlink, Belivas spoke.

    "Sarge, kra eedada huutaveet siz klektuhkuh, teera x'ekra meecho."

    "Acha." came the response.

    He turned to their host.

    "Perhaps you would like to begin now that there are three of us."

    Captain Derek Fel intercepted the transmission from Nar Shadda. After inputing the coordinates of the Nal Hutta system, he entered hyperspace.

    A few days later

    The modified Clawcraft emerged out of hyperspace, it's momentum bringing it to Nar Shadda at full speed. His computer system had declared the possibilty of other people responding to the call was high. As if Derek didn't know. He wasn't the only one with a comm system.

    As he neared the landing zone he decelerated rapidly and activated his repulsors just before he hit the deck. He set his fighter down and deactivated the systems. He turned around in his chair to face the back. There he pulled out his two charrics and holstered them, he also took out a thermal detonator and a vibroblade. He then decended his ship's ramp. His computer then locked down all systems, except comm and security.

    He looked at the smugglers to size them up. Were any of them willing to serve the Empire? He did not know. Some of them probably hated all things Empire, but that was to be expected.

    "I am Captain Derek Fel, member of the Imperial Remnant," he said with his high cultured voice to the obvious leader of the bunch.

    special features: The silver ship is known for it's size and it's shininess.

    Biography: Growing up on Mandalore, Jaxxon had a special thing inside him. He had incredibly fast wits and was as sly as a fox. While the Republic was rebuilding he stole their only Bulwark BattleCruiser, right under their nose. He used to be a bounty hunter, but he had got enough money, and made too many enemies so he quit that. Wearing Mandalorian armor most of the time his wits have improved and his slyness got even better. Using this to his advantage in navy battles Jaxxon is a formidable opponent. Lately though, his enemies have multiplied (mostly due to stealing their credits, and leaving their accounts bankrupt.) and he is always fleeing from the pirate orginazation, THE BLOODY TEETH.

    WW, you were a genius to make this up. However, I'm not 100% sure about how all this works, so if I made a mistake tell me.

    Jase Terran stood on a balcony of a hotel of Nar Shadaa thinking to himself. "A special smugglers job, eh. This could be my chance to get rich. Those weak smugglers never stand a chance. Though this time there will be the best of the best," he thought. "Varns!" he called,"assign our slicer to find out as much as he can about this job. And call a taxi, I will go there myself to find out what I can."

    The Man who stood before them looked to be the hollowed shell of an Aristocrat. His Accent placed him of Coruscantian origin...however he must have been a young boy when The Emperor Died over Endor 60 years ago.

    "The test will start as soon as I leave this platform. What you must do is simple...make your way down into the lower depths of Nal Shadda and find a hidden data card. On that datacard are instructions to the run that has to be made. Whoever finds the card gets the run...which is worth one million Hutts (currency). I will not give any hints, but I will tell you it's "Down There"...go

    "Sounds easy enough," Derek said. He pulled out his datapad and typed in a command. At his fighter, a small alcove opened and a speeder bike flew out to meet Derek. It was nothing fancy, slighty modified since it was used by scout troopers.

    Derek took the seat and flew off, going down into the depths of Nar Shadda. He looked around for a slicer that might be of use to him. After scanning for a while, he found one that would probably help him, for a price.

    The Slicer that Derek found was a young Street Urchin, who had been without his mother or his father since he could remember. He was raised as a cabin boy until he became of age at 16. For the past four years he had been working the streets of Nal Shadda, looking for small time work.

    Derek came in and asked about a job, Derek quoted him " that'll take 1,000 hutts. Once I get the money, you tell me what the Job is. "
