STAR WARS: Old Republic (Closed)

will turn your insides into your outsides
So I'm looking once again for some Star Wars roleplay groups. But I'm only interested in an Old Republic setting.
I'm wanting to play THIS character. So I'm looking for a setting in the early years of the Great Galactic War (3691 BBY - 3653 BBY) era in order for her to be viable, as she IS timeline sensitive. I know it's a very long shot, as Star Wars RPs aren't common on here to begin with, much less in a specific era. But that's what I'm looking for.
For those interested, please keep the timeline in mind when selecting gear and vehicles for your character. I've seen it all too often in Star Wars roleplays where characters have weapons that weren't even manufactured for another 2,000 years.

Update: We now have a GM and a Character Sheet:

Code:
[imageFloat=right](character image goes here)[/imageFloat]
[b]Name:[/b] (your character's name, duh!)

[b]Species:[/b] (your character's species, also duh!)

[b]Affiliation:[/b] (the faction or political group your character associates with)

[b]Height:[/b] (self explanatory)

[b]Weight:[/b] (self explanatory)

[b]Age:[/b] (self explanatory)

[b]Other Physical Details:[/b] (dimensions, hair/eye color, scars, tattoos, etc.)

[b]Background:[/b] (your character's background, to include their place of birth, their family, the events that led them to where they are, enemies and friends made, training they received, etc.)

[b]Skills and Abilities:[/b] (everything from droid repair, to martial skills, to force abilities. Use common sense and don't be a Mary Sue ~NO GREY JEDI~)

[b]Gear:[/b] (please keep these timeline appropriate)
- Weapons:
- Armor:
- Vehicles:
- Droids:
I'm not looking to GM (as is made obvious in my signature). I am looking only to JOIN a group.

I’m interested!
cool! What kinda character were you thinking of making (or have already made)? Are you familiar with the timeline? And were you interested in GMing? Because otherwise we will obvs still need to seek someone out for that role.

Oh, and if you have acquaintances on-site you think might be interested, feel free to tag them over

I’m making a human female named Lexkat Gambvaus.

No, I’m not really familiar with the timeline.

I would prefer not to GM, but I guess I can if nobody else will, even though I’ve never done it before.

Wow. Second day on the site and I meet someone who is also interested in SWTOR.

I'll throw my hat in the ring for a group RP. I would prefer not to GM as I've only been on this site for less than 72 hours.

Also, praise Mandalore all-day-everyday.

Sorry everyone for the late reply. I've recently come down with the covid, and the symptoms got me under the weather.

If you haven't GMd, aren't overly familiar with the setting, and aren't particularly enthusiastic for it... I would probably prefer you not do it then. lol

Either way, I'm happy to have you along for the ride.

As far as the setting itself: if you've ever played the SWtOR MMO, it's the era right BEFORE the game. It is marked by the Battle of Korriban in 3681 BBY. I provided a link in the OP that takes you to the Wookiepedia if you want to do your own reading.

Ya'll mind if I praise the Mandalore?

I'm up for this! Definitely can't GM at the moment, though.
Ironically, in the timeline I'm looking to play in there is no Mandalore in power.

No worries about GMing, we'll get someone eventually I'm sure.

I love the enthusiasm! And also direct you to the above responses, so as not to become repetitive. ;-)
---------------------

Also, just to reiterate to everyone: I am not planning to be in charge of this RP in any way. This is just to try and bring a group together. For obvious reasons, I'm not even going to begin to talk about plot because that's the charge of the GM and would be kind of presumptuous to make up before we even have one. Otherwise, is everyone okay with the timeline I had mentioned? This way, we can at least get appropriated characters started.

Okay, so before Artus becomes Mandalore?

Mind if I play a Sith Pureblood?
I got no issues with that. :)

The only thing I ask of everyone is that they keep their gear timeline viable. In other words, don't have vehicles and/or weapons that didn't exist yet.
maybe I should make a note of that in the OP.

So this is before the Treaty of Corusaunt?
The treaty of Coruscant is actually what signaled the END of the era I was wanting to RP in. and I was aiming for more of the beginning of that era.
A couple years +/- 3681 BBY is what I'm shooting for.

OK, so could Project Poiwerguard be a thing in this rp?
Sorry, i had to look that up. No, I guess it wouldn't be a thing since that specifically was created during the Cold War. That was the Era following the one I'm talking about. However, you are free to make up something similar to that. Maybe a predecessor project that later got abandoned, etc. and eventually led to the Powerguard. The thing about the era I'm looking into is that it isn't rife with canonical (or EU) events for eveyone to bump against. So we a have a little more free reign to move around and create characters/events in.

Galactatech Galactatech As a general rule of thumb, anything in the MMO is too far ahead to be included in the timeline I was looking for. However, some things may have existed prior to the events in the game (such as vehicles), and might still be viable. It just needs research

So what's the character sheet?
Well, I'm not GMing. and neither am I plotting because that's the job for a GM. The only thing I'm doing is requesting peeps that are interested in the timeline. As far as a CS, I have MY Character as an example. But I don't expect others to get nearly that detailed. I figure most people are smart and experienced enough to make a decent CS that includes all the general stuff that is normally expected of them. But as I said, I'm not wanting to be in charge of this. So I don't want to be laying down too much guidelines for everyone else, lest I kind of be assumed to be in charge or something.
