    Welcome to my RPG: With Iron Fists: The second Empire

    While this is not the RPG I am planning (of good and evil is still in the works) I thought I would try my hand at being a GM.

    This RPG takes place eight hundred years after the battle of Endor, and the defeat of the Vong. Just for your information. It is going to be open-ended, with the outcome based on the actions, and decisons of the players.

    Okay, heres the story.

    Peace has reigned for nearly seven hundred years now, and most of the Galaxy has finally united under the banner of the Republic. The Jedi are now nearly over one hundred thousand strong, and with thier assistance, nearly all evil has been wiped from the galaxy. While their is still some criminal activity, no major campaigns have been launced agaist the republic for nearly five hundred years, ever seince the last of the imperial loyalists were wiped out of existance by the defense force of the new Republic, with more than a little assistance from the Jedi.

    However, there came a new threat, which in time, proved to be the downfall of the new Republic.

    A young Jedi, XEN GERANNO, discontent with the Rigid system of the JEDI, has denouced his allegance, and left the order. However, before his departure, he took with him the secrets of the SITH.

    Alone, in solitiude on a far-away world, Xen has studied all available information on the Sith, and slowly, became tainted by the information he learned. Over the course of twenty years, the good man that was Xen, was replaced by the evil that became DARTH PROTIUS.

    Now, armed with the power of the dark side, Protius has set forth to find those that, in secret, long for the return of the empire. And to his surprise, he has literally, found thousands that seek the order and absolute rule of the empire, mostly the decendents of imperial officers, and other high officals. United behind the banner of Protius, they set forth to bring about the fall of the Republic, and restore the empire, that they so long for. They have, in secret, found, or constructed fleets of ships, fighters, and various others attack weapons or vehicles.

    However, their numbers were very low. So, in a desperate bid, they attacked the planet of KAMINO, and utterly decimated the Kaminoians, nearly making them extict. The few left were ordered to produce clones for the new Imperials, or die. Not wanting their race to go extict, the Kaminoains had little choice to comply to the wishes of Protius.

    Protius chose his greatest soilder, GENERAL MAXIMUS GERRAD, to be the template for this new army of clones. Gerrad had literally killed hundereds with his bare hands, and had shown great military intelligence, as well as amazing logistical thinking.

    Ten years after the invasion of Kamino, after the cloning labs and traning facilities had run nearly day and night, Protius now had nearly four million totally loyal troops to command. That, combined with the new ships built in orbit over the planet Kamino itself, Protius now commanded an awesome armada of a massive scale, and armed with it, he set off to CORRACANT, where the GALACTIC SENATE was in session. But, before he left, he murdered the last remaing Kaminoians, and left his genitic engineers in charge of troop production.

    Shortly after the Senate had convined, early in the morning on a crisp summer day, fire regined down from the heavens, and Protius attacked. The defense force, that had downsized over the years, was no match for Protius, or his troops. In a matter of a few hours, Protius had taken the Capitol world of the Republic, and utterly decimated the Republic government. Strinding into the Assembly building, Protius acended the Chacellor's podum, and decalred himself emperor. Those still alive, reluctantly agreed, and accepted the rule of Protius, all except the MON CALIMARI, whom left the assembley, and returned to their homeworld, refusing the rule of Protius.

    Three days later, Protius' troops landed on Mon Calimari, and wiped out

    A few points I would mention about this RPG, that you could consider adding, Darth-Protius: first, technology will have advanced quite a ways, so perhaps we should have a short list of new ships, technology, etc. Secondly, perhaps any fallen Jedi should be forbidden from joining the Empire, as the Empire already has a lot of advantages in manpower. Just my thoughts, of course, you're the Game Master.

    OOC: About the Tech, RBG, its really hard to say what kind of Advances they would have that far into the future in the SW universe, so, For the time being, we will use the Tech that already exists. (New ships however, WILL be welcome, as long as they use existing SW tech.)

    DarthSeti5 That's fine! I knew someone would have to be the leader of the opositon sometime!

    Welcome to you also, Knighthawk! While regular firearms are not usally used in RPG's I will allow yours as it is conciveable that at one time in the past, they did exist, and they could easily be manufactured.

    As soon as we get a few more players, we will begin!! Thanks for Joining!

    OOC: Thanks, Protius; however, I'd like to say I'm not leading the whole of the opposition, I'm sure there are other other rebel cells out there. In case a Jedi doesn't want to be under little old me. ;)

    Also, I'll have some stats up on the Joyous Gard soon.

    OOC, to self: Seems as though we have a very friendly Sith Lord for the GM. I like that.

    OOC, to Darth Protius: Thanks for the welcome. I use the bullet weapons because they're my favorites from our time. I use the Dark Side because I am quick to anger. Be careful, my friend...

    OOC: Well, KnightHawk, seeing as your character is 36 years old, I think he would have a good grasp of the force, and the powers available to him. But take into account that he was not formally trained as a Jedi. If he was adept at the force, I think he could do most things that A Jedi could, but may not know of some of the higher powers.

    To answer your question, Lord_Vader you can be anything that you wish, a captian, admiral,fleet commander, janitor, governor, anything you wish. Just run it by me first, and ill post OOC about it, or I'll PM you with an answer!

    Well, Darth, you asked for it!
    Powers (beyond the scope of the regular jumping, running, fooling the weak-minded, moving things, and seeing everything.)

    Note: If I mention one that already exists, please observe that I am attempting an original twist on it. I really don't know if these powers exist or not.

    A: Fear
    Everyone has a nightmare, a secret fear that they hide from the galaxy. I bring it out, paralyzing my foe with his/her darkest thoughts. Good luck fighting your fears, for if you don't, you die.

    B: Hatred
    Even the best of friends are hiding a bitter hatred from the rest of the world. This fact, while hidden, hurts nothing of their friendship. Once revealed, though, the result is drastic. This casues friends to fight each other for a short while. The effect eventually wears off, leaving one really confused victim.

    C: Dark Flames of Revival
    This weakens the enemy, stealing the energy from his/her soul to feed the user with new life. (Just what I needed after the Mack truck incident! :D)

    D: Rage
    In a frenzied flurry, the user attacks incessantly, using every offensive maneuver at his/her disposal. The attack lasts for a few minutes, but the user immediately needs to recharge when finished.

    E: Grip
    You know this already.

    F: Lightning
    Same here.

    G: Fires of Destruction
    And here.

    H: Lightsaber Throw
    Need I say more?

    WEIGHT: 124kg.
    EYE COLOR: Green.
    HAIR COLOR: Black.
    CLOTHING: Black trousers and crimson shirt with black vest, belt and boots.
    WEAPONS: Lightsaber, Plasma rifle.
    ATTITUDE: Pious and loving of life, this Jedi is wise beyond his years, leading a solitary existence has made him slightly odd to others.
    SHIP: TIE Defender Mach III.
    ADDITONAL VEHICLE: None.
    ALLEAGEANCE: Jedi.
    BASE OF OPERATIONS: Hiding and Meditating in the caves of Geonosis, trying to hone his advanced battle skills to one day oppose Protius.
    BIO:

    William Shard was widely praised as being a masterful tactician and combat expert; a warrior foremost amongst the Jedi.
    Despite his aggressive ambition and ability, he chose to distance himself from battles after being declared a Jedi Knight, a move that both pleased and shocked the Council, who had feared the rash actions of Will as a padawan.
    Instead, this Jedi Warrior devoted his years as a Knight to introspection and philosophy, seeking perfect attunement with the living and Unifying Force, drawing out tendrils of his mind along the tangents first proposed by the High Master Jacen Solo, many centuries ago...
    Now, he hides in the caves of Geonosis, seeking out that same attunement, and rediscovering his affinity for combat.
    Young William knows, that with so many of his peers and Master's now following the Dark Path, and with many others dead or gone...he may be the only thing left for a galaxy in the grip of a tyrant...

    OOC: Oh, boy, I can beat up on our new Forum Moderator! 8-}


    And, KnightHawk, you seem to have the wrong idea. It's not clearly defined powers like that... I believe it's more like you can do anything you see in the movies or read in the books, dependant on level, and I've never heard of any Force-user capable of changing people's emotions like your powers. Some of those, besides being non-canonical, are just too powerful, at least in my opinion. But, as always, we'd have to consult with our GM for the final word.

    OOC: Okay, I've read your post, Knighthawk, And While they are unique powers, I'm going to suggest a few minute changes.

    A: Fear
    Everyone has a nightmare, a secret fear that they hide from the galaxy. I bring it out, paralyzing my foe with his/her darkest thoughts. Good luck fighting your fears, for if you don't, you die.

    Instead of this, why don't you use

    Inspire fear an ancient force power used long ago by the Dark Jedi, and Sith Lords, this attack fills the victim full of a strange, unknown dread, rendering them immobile for a short time, extremely useful agaist Non-force adepts, but not as useful agaist Jedi.


    B: Hatred
    Even the best of friends are hiding a bitter hatred from the rest of the world. This fact, while hidden, hurts nothing of their friendship. Once revealed, though, the result is drastic. This casues friends to fight each other for a short while. The effect eventually wears off, leaving one really confused victim.

    and for this one, use

    Inspire Hatred another ancient force power used to twist the judgement and mind of the victim, causing them to turn on anyone close to them, the effect is temporary however, and does not last long.

    D: Rage
    In a frenzied flurry, the user attacks incessantly, using every offensive maneuver at his/her disposal. The attack lasts for a few minutes, but the user immediately needs to recharge when finished.

    This one is Canon, and more than welcome

    Dark Side tapping the user draws upon the dark side of the force, using it to gain incredible strength and speed (ala Luke in ROTJ, or Obi-Wan in TPM) however, this is pysically and metally taxing, depleating the user rapidly. If combat is not ended during the time of the tap, the user will be drained of all strength, and defenseless.

    I belive, that in the SW universe, the Inspire hatred, or Inspire fear would be just variations of the Jedi Mind trick, and while their is no Canon evidence to support them, I will allow them as it is not too much of a strech to belive that someone skilled in the dark side could pervert the mind trick, and use it in this manner. And Dark Side tapping is Canon, as it has been seen in two of the five films.

    The only thing I would kindly ask you not to use is your Dark Flames of Revival I really racked my head trying to figure out a way it could be used, and came up with nothing, sorry. But as I will allow you to use your other attacks, they will be open to all other Dark Jedi, just to balance the feild.

    I would also ask that you only use them in discretion, as a Jedi is not Weak-minded, and more often than not would not be affected by the mind trick, or any variation thereof.

    I'm not trying to be a tyrant here, just trying to keep things fair to all players! :D

    My next post will be the first game post, and new players will still be welcome after that.

    I kindly ask that RBG, The_dark_Overlord' and -Lord_Vader- begin with me, and go out on their own after I give them a mission.

    Again, I thank you all kindly for joining, and hope I can live up to being a good GM for you all! :D
