They say that when Alderaan died 200 years ago that was the first time anyone alive had felt such a great disturbance in the force; that even the wisest struggled to understand what had happened. That was when a planet dying meant something, the days where names like Skywalker and Palpatine belonged to living people, instead of sitting alongside figures like Revan and Exar Kun in the domain of ill-remembered stories and legends. Now the galaxy has seen the Great War, the first war fought where all sides had mass produced superweapons with firepower once reserved for the Death Star or Starkiller Base. The opening salvo killed more people than the Clone Wars, the Galactic Civil War and the First Order/Resistance Conflict combined. Anyone who could listen said that it sounded like the force itself was screaming as countless worlds died and over half the galactic population perished. The intense fires of conflict became smoldering embers once the stockpiles were exhausted and what remained of the governments and industries that had built the superweapons lay shattered into a thousand pieces. The core worlds are all but gone, the inner rim is just as devastated, and what passes for civilization is scattered among the outer reaches of the galaxy. Even landscapes as hostile as the deserts of Tatooine and the icy wastes of Hoth are sought after in this era; many of the most recent generations have no home world, living a nomadic existence amid a fleet of ships and never even breathing the air of a real atmosphere.

Now the galaxy is dotted with warlords and bandits, commanding whatever forces they have and trying to carve their own slice of territory. They give their forces grandiose titles, there is no shortage of new empires, republics, orders, federations, but whatever they call themselves or whatever great heritage or ideology they claim means little. In the same manner Jedi and Sith have become empty words, adopted by any thug or mystical charlatan with a lightsaber and some half remembered teachings; a thousand disparate traditions clinging to old ideals. Few have time to think beyond the hardships of everyday life. To the those that open their mind to the force and listen to it, they hear something new amongst the ruins, something that has replaced the terror from the height of the war. They feel it growing weaker, straining more and more, and calling to them only for it to fade each time; as though the force itself is dying, and no one knows why.





This will be a Star Wars RP taking place long after the Sequel Trilogy, many years past established canon. I'm aiming for a mix of a dark,er post apocalyptic feel, typical star wars action and adventure, and hopefully some philosophical introspection about what the force is and what it means to individuals. shaking up the setting quite a bit. At the start of the RP the players will be on a ship in a refugee fleet, all have their own reasons for being there, and will find themselves thrown together to survive, leading to a galaxy spanning adventure. More details of the lore will be fleshed out as we go on.

Canon Policy
Disney Canon and Legends are both welcome and encouraged. Disney Canon takes precedence over Legends in the case of a conflict between them. Events between the Sequel Trilogy and the current time in the RP have been left vague intentionally to allow for the ability for players to fill in the details.







Rules

1. Be kind to everyone. If you have a dispute, work it out in a civil way.
2. Respect the bounds of the RP. Remember the general rules about not godmoding, controlling others characters, making characters that are overpowered/setting breaking, or contradicting what’s been established for RP. There’s plenty of room to work with others and incorporate ideas, just try to talk it through first.
3. Be part of a group. Try to work with people to make the RP happen, give people the opportunity to decide where the plot goes. Also, if you end up leaving the RP, it's all fine, just let us know if you can.

Nice ideas, I’m pretty keen. This seems pretty cool and a good way to exercise my writing. I had already worked on a Star Wars character before I swiftly left this aight some years ago. I got a little excerpt here showing a little insight to the character I’ll cook up for the RP. I think he’s fit in this post-apocalyptic type RP. Hopefully I’ll get a sheet out soon:)

So the OOC is up, so I guess I'll start working on a character. What I had in mind is the son of an Imperial Knight, and order of Jedi who served the Imperial Republic. But since the great destruction happened, he's now without an order, losing his high standing and his purpose.

I'll work on a character later. High Noon and I plan on bundling out characters together at the very start.

Began my character sheet the other night.

I hope it's alright if High Moon & I come from a very... Specific zone. It works into our backstory.

It should be okay, but if you want to discuss the details with me before submitting a sheet to check, you can do it via PM, or (preferably) the discord server linked in the first post.

So, I'm interested, and I have an idea for a dark side cult, if you'll let me know if this will fit in.

The Family. Hierarchy is superficially quite simple, with only two tiers. Sibling, and Child.

Siblings, titled predictably as "Brother [name]" or "Sister [name]," are nominally equal. None is permitted to hold dominion over the others, but don't be fooled into thinking this makes them a democracy. Each does as they please, with the single rule being that they may not harm each other. Despite constant internal strife, they are (generally) unreasonably loyal to one another, and will band together without a thought against any outside threat. The number of siblings is limited by the Family's collection of lightsabers. You must have one to gain the title, but no one in the Family actually knows how to build them.

Children are a combination of apprentice and slave. They are taught the traditions and skills of the Family, and often pitted against each other to sharpen those skills. In a bizarre twist, while Siblings are forbidden to harm their Brothers and Sisters, Children are encouraged to try to kill their elders to claim one of the Family's prized lightsabers. This is both the Children's only means of advancement, and the Siblings' primary weapon against each other. You may not harm your Brother, but you can train his successor, and orchestrate his death.

Their philosophy is fairly typical, if quite unsophisticated dark side rhetoric. They use strong emotions to bend the Force to their will, with a particular reverence for pain as a source of power. It is quite common for their garb to include deliberately painful eleme to, such as spikes, needles or even piercings that affix to the garment. As the Force has quieted, they have resorted to stranger and more drastic versions of this practice.
