    Greetings and salutations. I am the G.O.D. of this venture into a distant galaxy.

    A few things I would like you to know.

    Setting: The time is 10 years after the majority of the Vong left the known galaxy. The particular part of the galaxy will be determined after characters are close to done.

    Mood: determined by the players.

    Theme: The rebuliding of galactic harmony and peace. (As it always was/is in Star Wars.)

    Speacial rules;

    Non-Playable races: Gungun, Ewok, Abyssin, Amain, Baragwin, Bartokk, Blood Carver, Celegian, Charon, Chevin, Clawdite, Codru-Ji, Colicoid, Ebranite, Filordus, Frozian, Jawa, Kushiban, Lepi, Miraluka, Neti, Noghri, Ruurian, Shi'do, Sludir, Thisspiasian, Tusken Raider, Vratix, and any others I don't have the stats for. (Droids are a case by case thing)

    Non-Playable begining classes: Anything with a Jedi or Sith in its name.

    Other details will be dicussed at the session.

    P.S. A few things to think about for character concepts.

    The characters personal history. Its current age.( mostly depends on race. Humans range for starting char., 16-30 y/o) How did the Vong invasion impact the char. What currently motivates the char. ect.ect.

    in light of our RPG being after the Yuuzhan Vong invasion I thought I would post what the Star Wars database has about the Yuuzhan Vong for anyone interested.. in this way you can get a little bit of background if you did not have any before.. and if you do already have this knowledge or don't care to have it ..no problem.. just thought I would post it in case.





    Fearsome invaders from another galaxy, the Yuuzhan Vong are the greatest threat faced by the New Republic since the collapse of the Empire. The Yuuzhan Vong are singular in their goal of conquering this galaxy filled with infidels, and transforming it into the new Yuuzhan Vong home, as dictated by their gods. They will sacrifice anything for their religious beliefs, and many worlds have been sundered in their crusade.
    The Yuuzhan Vong have a physical appearance quite similar to baseline humanity. They have thicker builds, and less hair atop their heads, and their custom of ritual mutilation helps obscure all but the most superficial resemblances to humans.

    The Yuuzhan Vong glorify pain not only as a motive for action, but as a state of living. In much the same way as the Yuuzhan Vong gods resculpted themselves to create their galaxy, the Yuuzhan Vong too alter their bodies for greater purpose. The higher a social rank a Yuuzhan Vong achieves, the more his body is modified. Yuuzhan Vong skin is a mottling of scarring and sweeping tattoos, and those of lofty elevation even graft creature or bioengineered body parts onto themselves.

    Yuuzhan Vong organize themselves into castes, strictly defined segments of society complete with distinct religious and social mandates. One of the most populous castes is that of the warrior. The brutal aliens greatly revere combat and pain, thus the warrior caste is believed by many to be the most favored of the gods. The vast military forces of the Yuuzhan Vong consist of frontline warriors led by subalterns, who ultimately are commanded by the warmaster.

    The intendant caste works to keep Yuuzhan Vong society functioning. It handles matters of commerce, bureaucracy, trade and the management of the sizable slave work force employed by the Yuuzhan Vong. Intendent ranks include executor, consul, prefect and high prefect.

    The priest caste wields considerable power in this rigidly theocratic society. The members of the priest caste are said to have direct communication with the pantheon of gods that rule the Yuuzhan Vong. There exists several sects, each for the worship of a Yuuzhan Vong deity. Ranks within the priest caste include savants, seers, and high priests and priestesses.

    The shaper castes are the keepers of the intricate biotechnology employed by the Yuuzhan Vong. Together with the priests, the shapers observe arcane rituals in the development and implementation of organic technology. The shapers rank very highly in Yuuzhan Vong society, and their ranks include adepts and master shapers.

    The largest yet lowliest of the Yuuzhan Vong castes are the workers. They consists of three types: those who have have failed to succeed in another caste; those born into the worker caste; those who have been conquered. Slaves and the so-called Shamed Ones (fallen members of society) are technically part of the worker castes, but even they are looked upon disdainfully by their fellow workers. It is the worker caste who performs the menial yet essential tasks of Yuuzhan Vong society, from garbage collectors to personal attendants.

    The most exclusive of Yuuzhan Vong castes has only a membership of one: the Supreme Overlord. This is the ruler of the Yuuzhan Vong, and he has supreme religious and secular authority over the invading people. Though the priests may commune with the various Yuuzhan Vong deities, only the Supreme Overlord has a direct connection to the Creator, Yun-Yuuzhan. The current rank-holder is Supreme Overlord Shimrra.

    Yuuzhan Vong technology is bizarre and perverse, though it is nonetheless effective. The aliens grow their technology organically. All their devices

    Damn, 6 pm. I have class on mondays until 7pm. I guess my character can be sitting in the corner doing absolutely nothing, with no contact from any other character until I get there. Oh well.

    well DT just remember on RPG nights to call and see if we are still going.. you can always drop by and say hello if not play... and perhaps you might find a way to get your shift changed eventually. I hate that you are missing out.

    Though the idea of being able to pick up the Prestige class of bounty hunter before you meet the requierments is lovely. A scoundle of lvl 6 or 7 would be able to pick it up at it's next level. So therfore,ALL characters are requiered to be made in front of my (the GM) eyes.

    There is still a little bit of character work to do with the ones that were made last session. After that we will dicuss starting locations and such.

    see you all there.

    P.S. Some of my friday night group wishes to join. I have no problem with this. It gives all you some expericed RPGers to interact with and learn from, also it will show you that even expericed players still ask about things of the system and such. So if any of you have a problem with this we'll disscuss it at the game.

    Thank you,
    The GM.

    the quicker things are during char creation is always better for me, since I can put down a char in almost nothing flat. Tis my favorite part...a close second is exposing others to 'my' star wars universe.
