    Welcome to the ABY thread! The home thread for the 128 ABY saga and the spin-offs and entries into the franchise by the Expanded Universe Community and Star Wars Community. The 128 ABY games have been remarkably popular, and we've had numerous adventures in its universe - and we will have more to come!

    Beyond the entries by myself, we've had fanfiction from SirakRomar, games from DarkLordoftheFins and LordTroepfchen, and the franchise will later burgeon with entries by many other GMs who have been given their own little playground to play within this storyline.

    Not all of them are RP games, but the majority are. :p

    The 120 ABY, 130 ABY and 132 ABY entries are all fanfiction by our own SirakRomar, and the current 129 ABY entry is also fanfic. :D

    And here you do not even have to play the barkeeper, Sarge *hands him icecold Mountain Dew*

    :)

    Sorry by the way that I have left Tenk at the mercy of LordT. :p it was you who wanted to have a mental battle with Xenly, remember that!

    I said no such thing! *takes the Dew* Was only asking if it was some sort of mental battle thing that is going on and Talia was all nice and safe during all that and not torn into a million pieces >.>

    And I was right :p *chugs*

    Yay! It finally happened!

    So, let me begin with a coople of questions I was having, lately.

    1. In what Order do the 133ABY games happen? TDO is after TCE, is it? When does Vulture´s Talon happen?

    2. Are they all connected to EACH other or only to 128 ABY? Because I am looking for new games and despite all the hate we ABY´s got, I love my Abyverse. I wanna stay there ;)

    3. Is there any plan for the time after 133 ABY so far? Anything in the back of your heads? Anyway, why not do a list of planned upcomings, for the future?

    4. Personal interest. How many PMs do you guys write to coordinate this? I read the 128 ABY thing a few days ago. Fin´s lovely document he has made back then and I realized that 133 ABY - The Dark Odyssey is FULL of nods to 128 ABY. Even more than I spotted while playing.
    Is there anything like this in the new ones? Because I enjoy them. A lot.

    133 - complain of the week:
    Hoole is having Tenk *sighs* I have no clue where Hoole is (where did I mess up, wasn´t I supposed to know by now, Fin?) and first death in 133 ABY - The Cold Embrace was strange. Straaaange.
    And the Xenly "eating Pergitor" was nasty.

    I still haven't read up the latest updates to Odyssey yet other then a quick glance that told me, indeed, Tenk was having a meeting with a certain someone. Between thinking up stuff for my own game, catching up and posting in other games, DRL (argh 64 kids!), I'm only now getting around to doing it :p Expect my post to pop up sometime soon.

    Okay, in the open.

    1. 133 ABY: The Vulture´s Claw is in the beginning of the year 133. Right after New Year, so to say. 133 ABY: The Cold Embrace is not long after that. End of first third, maybe. And 133 ABY: The Dark Odyysey takes place in the last third, then.

    2. Dunno, must ask Sinre. 133 ABY are all playing in the same universe where 128 ABY - 129 ABY happened and your stories took place. I have no awareness of the other GMs plots.

    3. Not by me. 133 ABY: The Dark Odyysey is my final bow as a GM to this universe. I wanna play more, again. There was at one point an idea for a 134 ABY. Dunno if LordT is still considering it. And I expect Sinre to throw out endless waves of games, until he has written a complete history up to the comic-series. 130 ABY is a given, I think. Question is, who does it? :p

    4. Glad you like it. Not many realize. But actually I do this mostly on my own. When we beta-read 129 ABY we talked a lot about things and me and Sinre are exchanging 1-3 huge mails from time to time . . . right now we´re pretty active because of 129 ABY: Shadow. Most of the time we try to ask each other questions and not spoil the story to the other . . . :p For Odyssey that was kinda hard.



    A question.

    What are they about?

    Hmmm... Can anyone summarise major events, players, characters and happenings in the ABYverse ? That's the major problem I have with it - I have no idea what went on there, so I don't even know what the Xenly are for example.

    An AoD one, Sinre? So that's what the title of our thread over in the SWC means then? I see. Could be interesting.

    Is the GoL, AoD, and DoD doing a RPG together?:confused:

    I think they are all doing separate games that happen to be connected by story.

    Dudette, my guy's in the middle of fighting against them and even I don't fully understand what the Xenly are for! I think their major appearance is 133 Dark Odyssey. I can't figure out if they did show up in one of the 128 games, at least one of the main baddies responsible for them did. Sinre, Fin, response?

    Major events - uh, the Sith killed everything and everyone in 128. :p

    Okay, gotta be short, as my ride will get me to work in a minute.

    XENLY. They are sort of a prime antagonist in 133 ABY - The Dark Odyssey. All eating insects that are fully under the spell of the Dark Side. Their background isn´t fully known yet. Being partly a mystery is what they are meant to be. They date back to 1999, when they were created for our German Boards and had been imported together with their "not-so-fully-in-control" Master Hoole into our ABYverse. Their main appearance is in 133 ABY. Though their introduction was in 128 ABY - Turning Point where the Sith extracted probes then reappeared in 128 ABY - The Collapsing Galaxy where a hive of them lived beneath the Sith Fortress of Roon and served as a battery for a Sith. Their a good example of how things develop in ABYverse. Brought as a nod to the german players they became essential for Darth_Bojangles and s65horsey in 128 ABY - CG and from there they developed their own spin-off.

    Maybe LordT will post their backstory, once the game is done.

    Actually without playing 133 ABY - The Dark Odyssey you usually don´t know them. Like I wouldn´t know a Togorian King named Shere Khan . . . except I´d be a fan of ManCubs, of course :p

    Major events? If I got time I think it will be fun to do this . . .

    I shall be replying properly later today, my friends, but I only have a few minutes at this time. I will also reorganise the 133 ABY order of games to reflect Fin's additional details.

    I might release a bit more of the 129 ABY OP to you guys, as well. I already know that Sirak is gonna have a small heart attack of joy. [face_mischief]

    The summary of events is gonna be quite massive, methinks, but I can pull it together. :D

    The order of the numerous battles fought during the games is referenced here, for those of us curious. That should give you a vague idea as to how things look, at very least.

    I'd also like to announce that 129 ABY will take place six months after the end of the 128 ABY arc. So if anyone has any preferences as to where those six months have taken them, PM me between now and the end of the month, please!

    Sinre Questions to Answer:

    1. How long until the AoD RPG is up?
    2. Is there any plan for the time after 133 ABY so far? Anything in the back of your heads? Anyway, why not do a list of planned upcomings, for the future?
    3. Personal interest. How many PMs do you guys write to coordinate this? I read the 128 ABY thing a few days ago. Fin´s lovely document he has made back then and I realized that 133 ABY - The Dark Odyssey is FULL of nods to 128 ABY. Even more than I spotted while playing.
    Is there anything like this in the new ones? Because I enjoy them. A lot.
    4. What are they [135 ABY and 145 ABY] about?
    5. Can anyone summarise major events, players, characters and happenings in the ABYverse ?

    The Xenly :cool: Pretty easy . . . little black things that eat and kill everything. Can drive you mad. And replicate like hell. And considering that they produce Darkside energy like a lamp does light every evil guy wants them. And none has ever, ever managed to control them.

    They are nasty little bugs and they are many.

    I love them! [face_hypnotized]

    I don't suppose mounting some kind of defense would do any good or should I just wait for the dices? :p
