    Hello everybody, this is Darth-Horax, the originator of the greatest game in the galaxy!

    For all of you doubters out there, I will be returning to the arena as a GM...tremble in fear before me! :)

    First, allow me to pay tribute to bburditt, the exalted commissioner of the last few drafts. Until further notice, he will be commissioner of this draft, as well.

    As you all no doubt know, the previous 8 drafts were won by GenMadine (2 wins), Qui-Gon-Jinn2, Corran10584, Gaeri, Saber_Leader, Ghost_Jedi and Suzuki_Akira.

    Again, as you all no doubt know, this draft had a little 2 week hiatus, so that the mods, and respected and veteran draft participants could hold a little discussion on the future of the now world-renown draft series.

    Allow me a little bit of time to run by the new thread rules, explain some of the unclear rules, and then give you all a run-down as to how this installment will be played, and also give a brief explanation of how the game actually works.

    Here are the new thread rules.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    VIP / Colors / Titles: Per the VIP rules and guidelines outlined here, the ONLY person able to get colors / VIP status / a title from the Draft will be the winner. That will last a period of one week. Unfortunately, the Commish / Leaders / Judges will not be allowed VIP status or even a title. You are encouraged to put this information in your sig. The winner will also get to use the VIP Only "Jedi Draft Winner" icon for the week.


    Only one Draft thread at a time. Because these will now be official forum games, Stryphe and I will allow one Draft thread at a time. This does not appear to be an immediate problem as the Starfighter Draft is on a bit of an hiatus. If and when the SFD returns to activity, we can consider having two at a time if the pace of the SFD becomes a problem.


    Two week gap between Drafts. After two weeks the new thread can be started for any new planning that needs to happen for the next draft.


    Forum Mods retain right to pull Commish. If this is to be a forum game, Strilo and Darth-Stryphe retain the right to pull the Commish should he/she be misbehaving to an unacceptable level. This is not something they would do lightly nor should they have to do it at all. Only worst case scenario here.


    Authority to prevent anyone from playing one or more editions of the draft is left solely to the discretion of the forum mods.


    Mods will do a sock check on all GMs and judges.


    Socializing and chatting off topic is allowed in moderation, provided it conforms to all the rules of the forum. (No politics, discussing films and not fans, no flaming/spamming/trolling, etc...)



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    To be clear, this means that the Jedi Draft is now an official Star Wars Community forum game. It is also currently the only SWC game to offer a chance at winning some colours for a week.

    In regards to the Only one Draft thread at a time, this would mean that while the Jedi Draft is going on, the Starfighter Draft, would have to be on hold until the Jedi Draft is done, and vice-versa.

    To clear up any issue you all probably have with this, these rules are only a test. I know that the SFD can run slow, and if it runs too slow so that the Jedi Draft would have to be on hold for months, then that rule will be overruled. Corran10584, creator of SFD, has been thinking about moving the SFD to the EUC anyways.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Now that the administrative stuff has been mentioned, lets move on to an explanation of how to play this game, and a description of the newly decided game rules, for those who already know how to play.

    Firstly, there are three different types of participants to the draft. There is one commissioner, and for this current installment, that just so happens to be me. There are three judges, they will be the ones who will deci

    For now, I think it's best if we only sign up two judges...Because Horax obviously copied and pasted that from the last draft, and we ended up going to two judges and Commish


    We can always add a judge if they decide to go with 3 later

    Sweet, we are back.... a few hours early, but I assume this is the only time Horax could get on!

    I will be back as commissioner, and third judge, for probably one last time. Also, SecondBest gets a guaranteed spot as he was runner-up last draft.

    I'm not aware of Hand Of Skywalker's background. Has he played before? The judges positions are being held for veterans of the draft. Also, Windu wants to judge, as well.

    I"m off like a prom dress.

    Just PMed him and Taiwo.

    EDIT: Yeah, a few n00bs (no offense intended, as some draft n00bs do quite well). Means I might have to actually talk to people.

    Oh, and burd: any word on new Jedi, specifically Whie, Scout, and the KotOR 2 crew?

    Just as a helpful reminder to all the new gms, you should not underestimate the abilities of Vergere or Jocasta Nu. They are both worthy first round candidates. And if you get lucky you might even get Yaddle or Yareal Poof in the second round.

    Just my little helpful tip to you.

    Ignore Luke, Sidious, Exar, and Revan in favor of Coleman Trebor or Master Fay. :p

    The four categories in a list, to get Burd riled up, IMO:
    1. Skill
    2. Dueling Experience
    3. Force Power
    4. Intangibles

    Okay, how's this for a team:

    Coleman Trebor (Team Captain)
    Callista
    Jocasta Nu
    Tahiri
    Tenel Ka
    Yareel Poof

    Man, I soooo got this draft in the bag.

    In no particular order, here's mine for individual:

    Skill
    Experience (note: connotes saber-saber experience, not just experience using the Force or fighting thugs)
    Power
    Intangibles (could be anything from a unique weapon to a mindset to an esoteric Force technique)

    For team:

    Individual (that is, 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, etc.)
    Total Power
    Total Skill
    Total Experience
    Cohesion
    Leadership
    Intangibles

    The last 3 are less important, but can still swing a battle.

    Besides those, if you're unsure how I think, read through both the previous draft (I GMed) and 2 drafts ago (I judged) or PM/AIM/MSN me (screennames in the profile).
