    Setting- A little while before A New Hope, The rebellion is still growing, they are getting aquainted with their new starfighter, the X-wing. The Empire, securing its hold on the core worlds are now looking rimward to find planets rich in resources for manufacturing of goods, or isolated places to build secrete facilities and labritorys or store prisoners quietly out of the way. One planet labled 482 by Imperial Scientists has been approved for Colonization.
    Planet- 482, currently unnamed, Is a temperate planet, polar ice caps on the poles, it has three large contienents. two are close along the equator, keeping them warm and well vegitated. the third continent is rather small and close to the southern pole, it is a cold harsh place, though some creatures and plants can survive there. it has 2 moons and orbits a single yellow star. the System it is in containes 4 other planets.
    The first planet lays too close to the sun for colonization purposes though it is high in metal content and might be mined in future operations.
    482 is the second planet, and is in the perfect position for colonization.
    The Third planet has the possibility of later colonization though its distance from the star makes it colder than 482, its easly terraformable to make it sutable fore life.
    The forth planet is a giant gas planet that is orbited by 12 moons and has a large ring that circles it from pole to pole. The gas planet is of no value and is not considered to be important by the Imperials.

    The Fleet- Being a small planet on the outer rim the imperial fleet will not be sending much of its resources out to it. the fleet will consist of
    3 Dreadnaughts
    2 Blockade runners
    1 Colonization ship. The colonization ship is nothing more than a large patchworked liner that will trasport 500 people to start the groundwork on the planet. once they have the basic infrastructure set up shuttles will ferry more people to the planet.
    5 Squadrons of Tie fighters (60)
    3 Squads of Stormtroopers (36)
    Notes- First off please dont post constantly, Ive tried being part of a thread where most everyone posted 5 or 6 times a day, and I found myself, who usually posts once or twice, left out of most things, it got a little frustrating. I know you would love to keep things moving quickly but thats the beauty of a message board, not everyone has to be on at the same time to make it work. Second I dont see this as being a combat heavy thread, those who are looking for quick thrills and fights will probly be unsatisified, though if you would like to get involved in one or two conflicts im sure it could be arranged.

    For character information I need the usual
    Name/Race/Gender/Age/Desc/Occupation/and an optional background. given the time period there are not a whole lot of jedi or sith running about, though perhaps an old jedi master might hide out on the planet, or the imperials might make use of an inquisitor, but for the most part no jedi no sith, though a few force sensitives should be ok.

    Alien speceis should be thoguht of as a second class, the imperials are big Xenophobes, and enslave or treat aliens terribly, including the commander of the imperals here. Most aliens here are either slaves or those who are hoping for better life out in the outer rim, and they are also most likey to be supportive of the rebellion if not in it in some form already.
    More of the early colonisists will also most likey be prisioners, sent out in the outer rim as cheep labor, either as a part of a deal with the courts or some other reasons. Of course then there are those whos skills are needed or those who think they might find a better life on the new world.

    There are some important people needed for this thread and instead of me handling htem I think ill pass them on to you guys I will post their occupationa nd basic characterization, the rest is up to you and this is on a first come first serve basis.

    The Admiral/Govenor- Human Male, Extremly loyal to the Empire and also very power hungry. Sees this as a c

    As for Factions its basically Rebels, Imperials, and a few independant colonists who would actually probly be considered imperial citizens. GM's I would welcome, if anyone has ideas for another faction, maybe some aliens who live on the planet in the forests or some unkown aliens in the outerims PM me with some of your ideas, maybe we can fit them in.

    I'll think about it, DJ. Soon, though, I'm starting college classes at night, and I'm not sure how often I can post in my own RP. If I find I can do that one and this, I'll post a bio.

    ((edit))
    If I do join, I would like to be a criminal. ;) I think that would be fun. Just like a petty theif or something like that.

    OOC: Well I guess ill get this thing on the road, maybe we can get more while there.

    IC: The viewports of the lead dreadnaught was empty except for the blue tunnel as they barreld through hypserpace. on the nav board a light started blinking and the officer pushed it before turnning to the captain. "Sir we are nearing our destination point, estimate 20 minutes before we drop out." he reported duitifuly, the captain nodded before turning to give orders to another man. "Alert the fighter squadron, I want them ready to launch when we reach our destination, I shall go inform the Admiral of our arrival."


    OOC: there we go, we drop out soon, all the other ship are also going through almost hte same thing, preperations for dropping out of hyperspace.

    OC: Deneveon stared out the viewport.

    "General," a lieutentant said, prompting her to turn. "The Admrial asks that you alert the fighter squadrons."

    She nodded. "Very well. Prepare my fighter."

    Jostlyan jogged to his fighter, doging some mechanics who were finishing up last minute checks on the ties. reaching it he climbed in and started strapping in.

    "5 minutes till we drop out." Reported the officer to the captain on the bridge. The captain gave a nod in acknowledement. "Status?" he asked turning to another officer. "All systems and crew report ready."

    I'm getting a bit disapointed in my RP, so I will officially join this one.

    Name: Jo-Ni Shawa
    Race: human
    Gender: female
    Age:26
    Occupation: theif, tracker, botanist

    description: 5 ft. 6 in. 150 lbs Light tan skin, brown hair, shoulder length. green eyes shot through with golden brown

    Background: Jo-Ni lost both parents when she was young. To survive, she learned to move noislessly, she is a master tracker, and learned botany.(she knows plants, which ones are edible, which are poison, which are healing plants, etc...) Jo-Ni also turned to theivery.

    She recently went on a garden raid for food. The garden belonged to a Moff, and when she returned home, Stormtroopers were waiting for her. She put up a fight, and recieved a damaged right knee and bruises, including a black eye, all over her body before the stormies finally stunned her.

    The Moff made a deal with her. She would be allowed to live if she agreed to be sent to this new world. And so, she awaits in the brig on one of the ships for it to arrive at the new planet.


    (I'll let one of you decide what ship I'm on. Don't forget about me when we land on the planet, please. I'm locked in and will need to be released when we get there. ;) )

    "Squadron, prepare for drop out," She ordered.

    Her comm buzzed with replies.

    "Acknowledged, Commander."

    OOC: All non imperial personell would be on the colony ship which is basically a couple ships cobbled togeather, so for the most part the peopel who are colonizing the planet are criminals, slaves, or those desperate in finding a good life.

    OOC: Ok.

    IC: Deneveon flew her fighter into the atmosphere, followed by a squadron of TIE fighters.

    "Everything looks good to me," a pilot remarked.

    "Can it and watch for anything suspicious," she ordered gruffly.
