Star WarsEpisode VIIVisions of Peace The Battle of Endor is over and the Galactic Empire has suffered a fatal defeat at the hands of the Alliance and it´s greatest heroes. The Emperor and his apprentice Darth Vader are dead and the Empire´s Second Death Star has been destroyed by the fleet of the Alliance. But while the heroes of Endor celebrate their victory, the war has not stopped. People all over the galaxy have risen against their oppressors and overthrow their regional Governor´s to join the Alliance. The Empire is retreating on a thousand planets. But still, wounded and desperate as it is, it is the single greatest military in the galaxy. And like all wounded beasts, it is most dangerous when it has nothing to loose . . . ___________________________________ Imagine there would never have been an EU. Imagine a SW galaxy . . . the Star Wars galaxy you had in mind when first watching the movies. And then imagine . . . nothing more. There is no cloned emperor, no blue skinned admiral, no Sith Tribes in hiding. Nobody will ever flowwalk anywhere and if Han and Leia get children is as unwritten as the question if they stay together in the first place. Imagine anything could happen. That is what this game is about. This is an Episode VII set in an alternate universe where none of the EU exists. Only the movies, Episode I to VI are canon for our players and only they will count. Whatever happened after Luke defeated the Emperor and redeemed his father, whatever happened after the Rebels one the Battle of Endor . . . this will be your story! It starts two days after Endor and it ends wherever you lead it . . . _________________________________ The Universe This is your Episode VII. Only yours. Nothing is set in stone, nothing is meant to happen. Whatever happens after the Battle of Endor, is up to you alone. Every bit of EU is voided for this game. No Bakura will call for help, no Thrawn of Vong invasion is bound to happen. There are no secret Sith in hiding anywhere. We will use planets from the EU on occasion and we also allow for most alien races known from the EU (the Vong are not allowed), as long as they are not force-related, but what happens to them is completely up to the players and the universe as it develops through this game. The same will be true for any ship or ground technology, with the exception of anything that would qualify as a Superweapon. Those things won´t exist in this Star Wars universe. It goes without saying that anything you have seen in the movies is somewhere out there anyway. ___________________________________ The Characters You can play whatever character you want, if he exists in the Star Wars universe and if he is in line with movie canon. Canon characters are welcome, so are original characters. Original characters can be created in any faction and from any part of the galaxy. This game aims to explore what these troubled times mean to the “ordinary” people of the galaxy and what happens in the corridors of power alike. Considering canon-characters we will hand them out on a first-come-first-served basis. EU characters will be allowed on a case-to-case basis, but they will always be alternate version of themselves and whatever position or power they have in any book, they will not necessary have it in this version. I reserve the right to not approve any character who would probably lead to an reenactment of EU events. If you are in doubt about the canonicity of an idea you wanna use, send a PM and we will discuss it. Please use the character sheet below and send any CS to me for approval before posting. Character-Sheet Name: Rank: (only if he has any authority over others) Age: Race: Canon: Yes or No Possession: (only if anything special is in his possession like a ship, fleet, planet, unique armor, lightsaber or the like) Appearance: Description or picture, whatever you prefer Bio: (as short or long as you feel appropriate, for canon-characters a link is okay) ALL PLAYERS ARE WELCOME, therefore don´t be shy if you are new to this. We will help you out with anything you need. If you need inspiration for character creation have a look at the faction overview in my second post. Rules: 1. GM word is law, in this kind of game more than ever 2. Send all CSes for approval 3. No player can have more than two active characters 4. No reference to EU events shall be made, if they are not verified through the movies (for example Master Sifo-Dias and the mentor of Palpatine have existed at some point, because they were mentioned, Revan or the Vong invaders do not) 5. The GMs will update at least once a week, we expect responses in appropriate time. If someone vanishes or holds up the game for too long we will take control of the character to keep things moving. 6. No unfair behavior towards any player. 7. OOC is allowed, OOC discussions about the games content are not. We will establish an OOC thread for that. 7.b Your GM is from Germany, so forgive her any bad English! 8. Be ambitious! Have fun! 9. I mean it, HAVE FUN!
