    Yes, well that's because I wanted to keep all character sheets the same across the board. With that said, in case I decide to open up the Force, I don't have to go back through & modify all the character sheets. :)



    EDIT: Also, a Story Character, Queen Natasha the Bold, has Force ability, although she doesn't know it.

    @Bardan_Jusik , I'm not ******* with this Security Chief's chair!

    Great character sheets everyone.

    Definitely a feeling of getting the old gang back together.

    Oh boy. I see potential conflict with that clash between ISB and Imperial Intelligence, too. [face_devil]

    Sorry guys. I was really hoping to avoid the Imperialistic drill sergeant of a character...but he offered me cookies to join the Dark Side. I couldn't resist. :p

    Hey all ---

    I've updated the Player Characters section on the wiki. If you didn't give me a photo (or video in @Sith-I-5 case that I can't copy), I gave you all a standard imagine. I'd hope you all would apprectiate the iornry of that imagine---the Rebel & Imperial sysmbols---considering the storyline of the game.

    In light of that, if you have a photo, let me know, and I can upload it to the wiki. Make sure you give me a link to the photo and photo credit.

    Thanks all! :)

    P.S. - Let me know of any mistakes on the character pages.

    Just save my character pics as .gif not .jpg

    GIFs are several frames saved as one image. It's my thing these days.

    Doesn't wiki work with GIFs?


    Why does the CS ask for Date of Death?

    EDIT: Not a reader of SW books any more. If Disney couldn't be arsed to put the New Canon in one of the films, I probably don't know about it.

    I'll try that Sith ASAP.

    As for Canon / Legends. Disney is taking a very creative approach---they're taking all of the Expanded Universe (EU, now "Legends") and streamlining, updating, and enhancing it into the new Canon. What they're basically doing is taking the 1990's-2014 Expanded Universe/Legends & re-organizing it into something that resembles a realistic timeframe of galaxy history from Point A to Point Z, with everything tying into the Comics, Books, PT, Clone Wars movie, Clone Wars TV Series, Rebel TV Series, Rogue One (and other upcoming standalone films) OT, & ST.

    So instead of those odd bits of EU/Legends that didn't quite fit from a comic or book or that were seemingly to clash with the movies or other stories----that is now all being "fixed". Also, EU starfighters like the TIE Defender are being moved up (from ROTJ to Rebels TV series) to help illustrate that the Empire wasn't a bunch of fools & just waited for ROTJ to happen with no progress to combat the Rebellion / Rebel Alliance.

    I don't read the books anymore either (mostly because of time). But I really want to start again. I was really big into Rogue Squadron book series & the Yuuzhan Vong book series back in my teenage years.

    Okay all ----

    I updated all CS requests for edits. Also, I added Captain Duke P. (Patrick) Totter & Lieutenant Enoch Steadfast, Executive Officer & Second Officer respectfully of the Darkest Night.

    In big news, I am starting to type up the intro post (I am to have it up by Saturday night). So get ready. :cool:

    Quite impressed with the write-up for Lieutenant Enoch Steadfast!

    Has Disney made slavery legal under the Galactic Republic? Because it was illegal when George Lucas was running the show.

    Tatooine in TPM was Hutt territory, not Republic.

    No, it wasn't legal. But that's not Enoch's point of view. :-B

    AND...off to go write the intro post! :cool:

    To the regulars, you know my detail style. Go find something to go do for an hour or two. :p

    To all the new comers to our games...I'm sorry for the agonizing wait you are about to endure. But really I'm not. :p [face_skull]

    I've got my delayed birthday party to attend this afternoon, and then I will synthesize everything I've read and make a post today or tomorrow. :D

    Happy Birthday, @Laine_Snowtrekker

    Bit of a coincidence, as I have just started reading and cross-referencing 2015 posts from Rocketjocks and Echoes, and saw your birthday there too!

    We had some good game-specific banter going on while Evalynne and others were getting range time aboard the Delicate Delinquent.

    As for this game, I find it quite exciting that we are on the verge of this massive campaign.

    Yeah, this year was the big 3-0 for me. We did laser tagging and Italian and it was very much fun.

    I like the idea of us on the verge of this massive campaign, too, or rather, in between engagements. I'm glad to be playing again.
