    O.R. is a new play-by-post RPG and community forum. We wish to bring in experienced and mature players who are up to the challenges that the game sets before them.

    About the Game
    O.R. follows events that occur shortly after the Battle of Ruusan (1000 BBY). To provide players with unlimited options the story splits from canon events at one point, setting great challenges before members of all factions. Instead of glorious victory for the Jedi Order, the Battle of Ruusan has become a devastating tragedy for both Jedi and Sith.

    The Galactic Republic, suddenly finding itself without their trusted leaders, eventually crumbled and fell apart. Her place was taken by hundreds of smaller separate governments. The Jedi Order itself has lost much of its former power and surviving Jedi are trying to rebuild their organization.

    The Sith Empire fell apart. Only a handful of half-trained initiates took the advantage of finding themselves masterless and their actions brought the Empire to an end. Blaming each other for their failure, they started infighting. The few Sith who survived the Ruusan Genocide return home only to find their former Empire in ruins.

    Similar course of events occurs throughout the whole galaxy. People of all races struggle to fend of the upcoming dark age and survive, hoping for someone who would reunite the galaxy once more.

    Note: The game will be split into several episodes, to stay in touch with the original movies "feeling". Each episode should be concluded with a major event of the galactic scale.


    About the System
    The O.R. is a play-by-post forum, balancing at the edge of classic RPG and collaborative writing.

    Encounters and character interactions are left free to roleplay without system rules. However, the power of particular characters is defined by a diceless character evolution system inspired by White Wolf's game Exalted. For easy character creation the site presents a Character Maker web tool which implements the rules and assists the player in creating his character according to the system.


    About the Players
    Currently, the players of O.R. are all experienced roleplayers with a good history. We are looking for more players who would welcome the chance to be a part of this upcoming story.

    New Tool update:
    The site now features a new tool, Starship Maker. It contains a few basic starship classes which the player can pick as a template and modify them. Optionally, the player can submit a completely new starship class built with this tool. This time, development has been a little forward on rules documentation, so the players may expect a full description of ship components and upgrades soon.

    At the same time, the Character Maker has been upgraded to version 0.6b to match the Starship Maker's version.
    Both tools are now available under "O.R. Tools" link at the top of the site.

    (feel free to visit the site and post your review or comments)
