This is an alternate universe game. The details… the characters and some of the places from the original will be very different this time around…
any characters that a player replaces with their own original character is gone… they don’t exist in this story. But any that aren’t replaced are still here.
And in terms of the larger events that shaped the saga… the Clone Wars, the Galactic Civil War that followed… those will still happen… but the events leading to them and the specific way that they are fought will be vastly different from the original Star Wars movies and certainly the prequels.
Speaking of which… we’ll be starting out around the time, possibly slightly before Episode 1… but again… the story will be vastly different depending on what characters I end up getting in this. So… without further ado… go make your characters!
Note on Character Creation
I’m only going to provide Natures… and you can ONLY pick from one of these. We may end up with multiples of some of them… and that’s fine. But feel free to make your own… just make it clear which character from the Saga (episodes 1 - 6) that you are replacing. Anyone trying to replace Jar-Jar will be thrown out. Gungans don’t exist in this story.
But definitely come up with your own Strengths, Weaknesses, and Sub-Plots. I’m not going to provide any of them for you.
Another note… I would greatly prefer writing samples told from your character’s perspective over descriptions… gives me a better idea of how they think. Also… I want to make this absolutely clear…
when you make a character… you are REPLACING one that existed in the SW Saga with YOUR OWN, ORIGINAL character. Your own name, your own history, your own personality. I don’t want to see any Captain Erzats or Expies floating around. Thank you.
Also… fair warning… I’m hoping to explore the common man’s point of view in the Star Wars universe… which means that Jedi and Sith are going to be examined with a much more critical lens (i.e. neither of them should be taken as ‘the good guys’ or ‘the bad guys’ automatically) and as such… this is likely to be a bit darker than the main saga was… but not much darker than KOTOR 2 was.
Also… please include pictures for each of your own cards and your avatar… it really is helpful.
And if you need a good place to look… go to DeviantArt and dig through the fan art. There’s a lot to work with there. Speaking of which…
I do not claim to own any of the images used in this story. At all.
