Tales from the ABYverse The ABYverse covers RPGs that run as far back as 200 BBY, referencing games and events as far back as 30,000 BBY, and as far forward as 600 ABY. The continuity is immense. But the sandbox does not make for easy playing. Many games find themselves dipping heavily into the past, be it a few decades earlier, or even a few millennia. This thread is designed to enable players to knit together offshoot plotlines, dabble in backstories, and maybe even add a few pages to the overall story. The intention is to enable users and posters to go further than the main plotline may allow for, and to even throw together their own direction apart from the larger games such as 128 ABY and 129 ABY, or the more focused stories such as those set in 41 ABY and 133 ABY. If a player wanted to roleplay out a scene between their character and another in 145 ABY, but none of the current games covered that era, or play around with some ancestors set in 188 BBY which they couldn?t include in the main story too well? this is the place for you. There will be no overall GM of the thread, just co-GMs, running their various sections and games. The thread belongs to the franchise, the body corporate, of which the leading directors could be said to be various ever-changing individuals. The administrator is the Executive Co-GM, which itself has his/her/its headquarters in the resource thread dedicated to the ABYverse. A few important rules to the Tales thread. 1. The ToS still applies, no matter what. 2. The Executive Co-GM does not control the thread, their role is largely to administrate, and to make sure that issues and plotlines stay distinct. PM them to request an entry into the Tales thread. It is largely down to them as to whether the thread can take anymore weight. 3. An addition to the posting precedent, beyond the IC, TAG and other obvious pieces, is the year of your entry, or, where possible, a story tag. For example, a story/entry entitled ?Death Duel? should be referred to by each of the posters taking part in it, so as to avoid confusion. 4. While this thread will not obvious count towards the Co-GMs total of running games, it is advisable not to overtax yourselves, Co-GMs. The thread is designed to alleviate the desire to take a plot idea and turn it into a short-lived thread which doesn?t have the infrastructure to support it. 5. Original Characters that have been created by other players are off-limits to other players unless their approval has been given to the Executive Co-GM via PM from the original creator. Canon characters are not influenced by this restriction, but note continuity concerns will be strictly enforced so as to note cause issues in the overall series. 6. And most importantly; have fun.
