Ok. To get things started for the Persistent Galaxy... We have a few (15) approved sheets, but not all that much activity yet.

We're wondering what people want in the way of plotlines to explore, both with their existing characters, WIP characters and as-yet-unwritten characters.

Looking especially at the people with approved sheets, but also at everyone else with an interest in this period of Star Wars.

IMO, using this thread as a hub of sorts would be pretty sweet. Encourage people to make plans here and in turn, make some actual RP threads with themes they're interested in. Encourages collaboration as well

Given that we're playing in the Cold War, and that we have people playing characters on both sides of the conflict, I think starting with a politically neutral situation where direct conflict between the Empire and Republic is currently not present would be a good place to start. This would give us an opportunity to do some cross-factional RP and allow people to participate with flexibility.

To give an example of what I mean, my idea revolved around Lannik, Bothawui, and the Bothan colonies, which are in close proximity to each other and are presently independent. I imagine that neither the Republic nor the Empire want those worlds to become territory of the other. My idea revolved around the formation of an economic agreement/non-aggression pact among them, played out from the perspectives of the PCs aligned with the Republic and Empire, both of which are supervising the negotiations to ensure that the trade agreements do not favor the interests of one of the superpowers over the other. This kind of situation leaves plenty of room for intrigue and the development of a conflict as things progress.

A similar idea could be applied to worlds along the Imperial-Republic border. Maybe local elections on a world are favoring secessionists, or, seeing as Star Wars has a penchant for monarchies in the setting, the heir to a throne is particularly partial to the other faction and may lead his world to secede upon inheritance.

Corellia could be an active counterweight to this, giving people looking to participate an active conflict a place to play, or, if we wanted to disregard Corellia in Flames, we could begin the RP earlier, in the weeks leading up to the revolution as things are put into play.

I'm not sure how broadly appealing these ideas are, but that would be my preferred approach.

Where do you want plot lines?

As of right now, I only have one character. I don't really feel the need to restrict where she goes, but I am looking forward and itching to write about certain topics. As of right now I'm leaning more towards Edge of the Empire and Imperial/Republic Front Lines. Ruby and I are working on posts for Brye and Satele as I type this, but after our business is done, however long that may be (and I don't plan on rushing it) then I'm looking forward to writing about combat/training and the like.

What plots do you want?

🔹Political intrigue
🔹General intrigue
🔹Jedi training
🔹Military training
🔹Jedi-on-Sith action
🔹Light side / Dark Side shenanigans
🔹Combat (not outright republic vs. empire, on account of treaty)
🔹Torture/interrogation
🔹*Techy stuff

🔶As stated in the first paragraph, I'm pretty interested in writing about combat at the moment. Bryethe still has a ways to grow as a Jedi Padawan before her trials, and I'm excited to be able to write about her maturing into a Jedi, with the help of Satele and the experiences that shape her. Techy stuff is marked with a * because while I'm not too interested in it, Brye does have a techy side to her I'd like to delve into just a little bit. Most of what I've said covers Jedi Training, Jedi-on-Sith action, and maybe combat? But I'd still like to write about other topics as long as there are others who are interested as well. I'm looking forward to collaboration with other PC's, be they Sith, Bounty Hunter, or whoever.

There was a guy who was active here a nice while back. He set up a cazzy thread for Star Wars. My role in it was an Imperial officer. It was great to me. But, it ended far too soon for me. I didn't get in more than ten or fifteen posts and whadayano

Then Force Unleashed come out and I thought it was the ish. But it was a direct line of sight at how Force users get their roll on.

The movies cannot be captioned into one or two people. I'll go with Han Solo. For some reason I think people idolize hiim. Then there's Anakin/Vader. He's got all the stars and stripes. As much as I can judge, I'd go with Combat Training with/ treaty

Given the input so far, it seems easier to simply note what people don’t (currently) want…
Nobody asked for criminal intrigue, and one would like stuff that won’t be dominated by power-playing Jedi/sith (perhaps some sort of military training setup).

The only concerns people had for “where” to place such plotlines appeared to be somewhere that shouldn’t restrict participation options, so probably not too deep inside the borders of either the Empire or the Republic, as that’d prevent the opposite from participating.

Right now we’ve got:
🔹A good number of Jedi (two masters, one knight, three padawans)
🔹A few of various criminal affiliations (a hutt, two bounty hunters, and a couple of others)
🔹Some Imperial folks (One darth, one Sith apprentice, one grand moff, all three GMPCs)

With no republic or imperial military personnel sheets currently finished up, plot lines focused towards those are probably not a high priority. If such sheets are completed/submitted, that can change, of course.
Jedi-on-Sith action is generally popular, but excludes non-Force characters somewhat. As we have two sith currently, situating plots with them is not unnatural for us, but one of them can initiate other types of plots too.

Any further thoughts?

@Almalthia@Bea@Jackdaw@f0un

Since you desire the non-Force plotlines... will you be submitting a sheet suitable for that, @officaz?

Looks good to me! Excited for things to get going, even more so than they are!

I'm most excited for PC character interaction, such as something that was mentioned on Tython. I'm having a blast so far with Brye and Satele, keep up the amazing work all <3
