    He's always looking, taking mental notes, planning, scheming, and mentally arranging his next prank.......

    I believe posting here might be less offensive than posting in your main GoL thread. I peeked in there earlier when I heard Kato re-joined you.

    If there's room for an antagonist, I'd be interested in joining. Is that possible?

    Well that ended quickly.

    Antagonists are handled on the GM level.

    I have no idea why it would be out of the question to handle one exception, but okay bye.

    @Ava G.

    Why is there a need to be an antagonist figure?

    What would Arren do as an antagonist? What makes Arren an antagonist besides being a Dark Jedi?

    Well, she would look for and exploit a Jedi's vulnerabilities for the sheer pleasure of it. While doing what she could to plant seeds of doubt, especially in padawans.

    Also, she doesn't use a lightsaber, and prefers manipulation over combat.

    "So how does it feel to have walked in your enemy's camp?"
    "I don't see Jedi as the enemy now. That's far too simplistic."
    "What, then?"
    "They're people with only half the picture who believe they have all the facts. It makes their decisions flawed."

    Yeah, I guess that is how we are welcoming new initiates, with Sith Lord quotes pulled from wikipedia.

    Could backfire.[face_thinking]

    To any potential initiates watching, please know we aren't the enemies! Some may be a bit eccentric.... but don't be intimidated by your friendly neighborhood Jedi.[:D]

    Nice advertisement voice or public relations voice on a few of these.

    So I just realized something. You have a roleplay storyline with Jedi.

    Are none of them allowed to turn to the Dark Side during that story? Because then you'd have a character like mine. An antagonist in your story.

    If not, then what kind of a Jedi story could it be where the dark side isn't a constant personal threat and temptation?

    If your looking for Jedi turning to the dark side I suggest reading the end of The Shadow War, the LOTG's predecessor that takes place ten years before it.
    It's got one heck of a twist at the end of it (Even more-so if you read some of the older GOL threads where Gotab was a frequent participant).

    Many of our characters do struggle with the Dark Side, but I for one think the fun is resisting it. It's a fairly conventional hero's journey some, and for others its just an excuse to stretch our role playing legs and extend our participation in the GOL. Bardan is very good at creating enemies for us to face, and we handle them in the best way we can.

    Sometimes we end up in challenging situations that put is in tough spots, several times in the current game we have confronted foes who flatly refuse to be captured and force us to execute them. This creates plenty of opportunities for us to do some character soul searching and develop ourselves as living breathing entities in the GFFA.:)

    I'm sorry, but that does not address my issue of being excluded here.

    Bardan doesn't want me in the RP, for whatever personal reasons.

    Just say that. Be up front.

    You’re sharing the content of PM discussions in public. Stop it.

    You’re also taking a public swipe at a GM for rejecting your sheet for not fitting. Stop that, too.

    I understand PM discretion.

    At the same time, there wasn't much to be discreet about, and as I said, it was over (too) quickly.
