What are the projected core activities?

I thought I posted....


EDIT: yes I did, but this thread is old enough and long enough that the deleted posts interacted to make my last post invisible.

Good, you can start making your character.

Player characters start out as mercenaries working for some organization in Nar Shaddaa, all of you may have different reasons for being there (you can be friends before getting there, but the force will bring you together anyway...).
The group will start with small jobs in Nar Shaddaa and depending on the achievements, the party could acquire bigger missions or even get to stuff that could shake the galaxy.
Regarding character creation, you can use almost anything from the lore and the expanded universe, all I need is the source.
Stuff that may exist 50 years after the "new trilogy" will be available to the player characters (planets, people, ships, etc.) IF you have the time and resources to find such stuff.

Those interested in joining, please leave a message here in this thread.
The game is scheduled to start in couple of weeks.

The story will take place some years (50+) after the newest trilogy, in a galaxy far, far away. You can take any alignment you want; just remember you will play as a team.

Main GURPS books:
  • Basic set.
  • Martial arts.
  • Power-ups.
  • Powers.
  • Ultra-tech.
  • Pyramid 3-082 and related books (for the force). *
  • Space combat will be resolved using/adapting GURPS Action pursuits.
Characters will be 250 CP; all characters will be revised by me. If you provide a backstory at least one page long (single space, Arial 11), a picture of your character and a theme song you can earn up to 10 additional CP. The backstory must mention how you join the party (more details about the setting will be available once I confirm the players).

*Force users must follow the guidelines for the sorcerer template in GURPS pyramid 3-082, magical creations. If you want to be force sensitive, you must spend at least spend 60 CP: Sorcerous Empowerment 2 [30], plus anything else. For the purpose of creation, force powers are limited to 170 CP.
I'm interested... I will only have time to post 4 or 5 times a week, will that be enough to be involved?

Three players are confirmed for STAR WARS, with their 3 characters.

Using generic names, we have a “jedi”, a merc and a pilot/techie.

Anyone else?

I’ve received questions about the party’s alignment. You can individually choose any side you like. But it’s too early to state whether the group will be heroes or villains or something else.
