Today the freighter Lisander has been reported missing by officials. The cargo freighter, that was flying under the imperial banner had been on it´s way from Ukio to the Outer Rims and had been scheduled to stop at Subternel in the early morning hours.It was carrying about 500 passengers for the FarOut colonization project. The ship had not yet shown up at any spaceport, nor has any emergency beacon been located and Moff Caso has confirmed, that a squadron of Tie/RC has been send out to find it, so far without results. - Holonetwork New 336 ____________________________ Star Wars Castaways ____________________________ “The aft-shields are gone, they´re gone!” The young female officer yelled, but the Captain did not listen anymore. He typed numbers into his nav-computer, fighting the distractions by the repeated rumbles that ran through the ships, the sirens and the smell of burning electronics that spread in the comfortable cockpit of the Lisander. “Override security protocol now.” He stated, as if anybody knew what he was doing. “Whatever, Sir, hurry. Hurry!” The woman answered and their Verpine engineer did not shut up over comm., throwing cracking noises at them, that were probably his language. Nobody knew what he was saying, but even such an alien tongue could not hide the panic in his voice. The Captain looked up and his breath froze in his lung. The attacker was turning and approaching them once more. They could not take another hit. All they could do was . . . “We jump!” His hand pulled the lever, just the second the torpedoes were registered and triggered the alarm of the Lisander. They would probably drift through space forever now, as their target left it´s route and escaped to Hyperspace. Everybody on the bridge sighed in relief. People leaned back, laughed and were almost beginning to celebrate their survival, when the single bling made them all become statues. The young female turned to her console and closed her eyes. Then she confirmed their worst fear. “The attacker must have calculated our vector, he entered hyperspace right behind us.” It was impossible. The Captain had not given him enough time and the coordinates . . . they could not know about them. Nobody did. Nobody! “Prepare the passengers for emergency procedures. We´ll drop out of hyperspace in two minutes.” The Navigator looked at his Captain, obviously confused. “Sir, why should we . . . “ “Gravity field.” The Captain only said and he already knew his Navigator would not find any planetary body on his map. It did not matter. It was there. And they would soon lead their attacker right there . . . Welcome to Star Wars – Castaways. You might have guessed it, those Castaways are you. This is a prototype of a game designed by DarkLordoftheFins and handed to me recently. I was intrigued and now I gave it a shot. I aim for an episodic drama, so to say. The pilot and the seasons first Episodes ran back on our Tempboards. Now we are back here and we will continue with the adventures of our Castaways. The game is set at some point after Yavin IV and before The Empire strikes back. The planet you are on is jungle planet and more you won´t know in the beginning.To New Players: This game will take once and a last time (for quite a while at least) new players now that we have come here to the new boards. If you wanna join write me a PM with a CS or idea and we go from there.To Old Players: Nothing new there for you, we ended about two thirds into the Episode 3 of Season I and there is where we will pick up with my next update. On Characters You could be anyone or anything, as long as you wanted to go to the OuterRim. Sure, you can be awesome bounty hunters or soldiers, but I encourage you to try more usual characters. Ordinary people. What you cannot be is 1. A Jedi/Sith/Force User or 2. An imperial officer who was on duty. Everything else, including Stormtroopers will be fair game, as there actually were ten on board for unknown reasons. If you want to go down that route, please PM me to get some details. Any ideas you feel you need to talk about, send me a PM. The CS: Survivor´s Name: Age/Appearance: (description or pic) Equipment: I ask for realism here, you guys did not know you´ll strand on a planet, but were leaving a burning ship. So you won´t have survival gear on you or heavy weapons. Who are you? : This replaces the usual bio. Give us a sentence or two who you are. Don´t spell out everything, just tell what others would probably be able to tell from a short conversation with you. Rules: No Godmodding PM CS to me for approval Post the CS if you want to, or use the first post to describe yourself. Take your creative freedom, but stay reasonable. Have Fun!
