Okay, I can't hold it in anymore.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSS NEW SAGA NEW BEGINNING AND GENERAL HAPPINESS!

:D

In case you haven't noticed, I'm excited. I wasn't around for VII or the beginning of VIII. I love seeing the beginnings of characters and plots and following them through.

Anyway, speak.

Look, I know that your powers of retention are as wet as a Gungan's backside... but thick as you are, pay attention. My words are a matter of pride. It's clear from your vacant expression: the lights are not all on upstairs. But we're talking characters and plot successions; even you can't be caught unawares!

So prepare for the chance of a lifetime! Be prepared for sensational news! A shining new role-playing era is tiptoeing ever nearer!

(tl;dr: I'm excited too. >_>)

I can't help but notice you've deposed of the old Bond. Why have you gotten rid of the old Ams? :(

Cause he's older. I guess.

I TOTALLY POSTED ON THE FIRST PAGE. :P

Ams, can you post a thread with a summary of the back story in the announcements or something? Then change my name to Kelson Ordo? Thanks. :)

Not because he's older. A new face was needed for a new character.

It's because Timothy Dalton sucks.

But this new guy, I could get used to him...

I'm retiring scruffy, and presenting Kelson. Which reminds me... name change? :P

Oh, also; what would be Unity's equivalent of Paratroopers? Something like jetpacks would be silly, but having actual parachutes, even of futuristic materials, seems off too. Drop pods, perhaps?

The only paratroopers that I've seen in Star Wars have had jetpacks and launched from low-orbit on floating troop platforms...

Ugh, that's so ridiculous. If they're dropped from space, drop pods. If they're gunna go in the atmosphere, maybe an anti-grav ballon, released parachute style, Dark Knight-esque?

The troop-platforms were enclosed, silly but they were basically glorified shuttles. Perhaps you could come up with a Paratrooper division using stuff from wookieepedia...

Maybe you should talk to your faction leader before designing troops. :p

As I said before (somewhere, I'm not sure where I said it), I'll be posting the backstory soon, probably tomorrow. These are the little things we mentioned that needed to get posted yet before we were ready to start the game outright. :p Basically, the short answer is, if you need to know for planning purposes, everything is identical up until Admiral Daala begins uniting the warlords (Darksaber).

The Ewok wrote:
The RPG will start at/around 41 ABY. Up until about 12 ABY, things will remain canon. When Admiral Daala tries to unite the Imperial warlords; however, this time, she succeeds and the Empire is able to seriously contend with the newly forming New Republic for a much longer period of time, building their strength along the way.

However, in 20 ABY, the sudden, mysterious departure of almost half the Empire's military to the Unknown Regions - including some of the most hardcore Imperials - leaves the superpower in a bad position, spread thin across many worlds. It is not long before the Empire and the Alliance enter a truce. Out of this emerges a new Empire, led by forward-minded leaders, attempting to rebuild its worlds peacefully. The reason for and location of the other Imperial forces' abandonment still remains unknown...

As time goes on, the differences between the Alliance and the Empire become narrower and narrower. In 29 ABY, the Alliance and the Empire enter in the Galactic Union, a joint government with the two factions as member states. Finally, the galaxy is united in peace and genuine friendship, divided like provinces within a single country.

In early 41 ABY, rumors start to spread of a new power arising in the Unknown Regions, spreading tendrils out into the rest of the galaxy. This is where the game starts.

So is the Galactic Union a faction?

Yes and no. It's the dominant political entity in the galaxy right now. But, it doesn't have a dedicated military (yet). So, if you're going into the military, you'll want to register under the New Republic or the Empire (which OOCly we call the Imperial Remnant). If you want to go into government or diplomacy, you could technically choose between NR/Empire or Galactic Union. But, the Galactic Union isn't going to have forums, really (unless the need does arise).

Let me know if I didn't explain it well enough. It's a bit of a confusing relationship, but the best way to think of it is that the GU is the European Union and the Empire and NR are the member states, except that the GU has much more unifying force and power than even the EU does.
