    Hello and welcome to my RP request, Star Wars: Scum & Villainy. This will be an EU roleplay set in the era of the Great Galactic War (not to be confused with the later Galactic War) . This is the war right before the Cold War, commonly exemplified by the SWtOR MMO video game. This timeline is waaaaay before anything that has occurred in any of the movies or series, in the year 3679 BBY. That's just a couple of years after the Battle of Korriban. This roleplay is intended to take place in the Outer Rim section of the galaxy, as well as Hutt space. I am looking to (ideally) recruit a small group of 4 or 5 other individuals to create a motley gang of galactic miscreants. One character is allowed per player for now, but you may have a droid or creature companion to go with your character if you wish. I just ask that your companion be of a relatively mundane nature (i.e. no assassin droid bodyguards or pet rancors).

    As the title of the roleplay suggests, this setting will be more focused on the criminal underbelly element of the Star Wars universe. Smugglers, spies, raiders, slavers, bounty hunters, black marketers, and underworld agents are more of the focus here than the dichotomy of the Force and its wielders. My intent is to establish this group to pursue an alternative-themed roleplay to the typical Star Wars narrative.

    Since this timeline is occurring thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin, please consider an alternative dating system of ABM.
    This acronym stands for After the
    Battle of Malachor V. As things in the Star Wars universe are dated around events of galaxy-wide importance, it stands to reason the Battle of Malachor V would be substantial enough to warrant such a notice. This Battle of Malachor V occurred in 3960 BBY. In order to convert the timeline over from BBY to ABM, simply take 3960 (Year 0 for ABM) and subtract whatever year it is in BBY. The remaining sum is the current year in ABM. This year counts forwards as time progresses, unlike BBY which counts down as the years go forward in time.

    This roleplay is then set in the year 281 ABM.


    This recruitment thread will expire May 21, 2021 (that's this Friday). If the roster has not been filled by then, the RP will be cancelled. So stop lurking and make a character application, already!

What planets would be available for character origins?
I'd be interested in playing a Human Cyborg (enhanced eyes) Appraiser who unknowingly has minor force abilities. Basically enough to get 'hunches' and maybe fudge a dice roll in his favor occasionally if he gambled (so a 2 on your scale I think).

You can have characters be from wherever you want. The story setting is going to be in Outer Rim and Hutt space. But the characters can be from anywhere in the galaxy.
And sure thing. Your character concept is totes copacetic for the setting.

Which planets do you think would work best? Nar Shaddaa is in that area, right? (I know Nar Shaddaa is a Moon, but for the purposes of the character sheet)

Nar Shadda is in Hutt Space, yes. It's a moon to Nal Hutta...
you DID click on the different tabs at the top of the post, right? Nar Shadda is directly mentioned in the STORY section

ah, okies. anyhow... if you want to make them from Nar Shadda, that puts them right at home for the opening setting.
I know the field says "Planet of Origin". But it can be a moon, a space station, or whatever. As long as we have a point of reference.

Im very interested! Appraiser/Connoisseur most likely! Lemme know!
zerozero zerozero has also expressed interest in the appraiser role. And while roles are not necessarilly one-a-character, it would be better to have a bit of variety before having characters of the same vocation so soon in the recruitment process.

it is. The peeps interested thus far have only chided in here on the thread. I've not yet received any interests outside of what you see in the above comments.

My interest has peaked. Any specific types of characters you looking for?
currently, I have an approved Appraiser/Connoisseur.
And two ppl pending that are interested in Underworld Contact roles, with one wanting to double their role as a Munitions Expert.

I could use a little more muscle in the group. Someone shooty (both in the field and on the ship). And we defo need a mechanic. If nobody is up for these roles, I can write in some droid crew to fill the holes. But I'd rather have an actual player taking that on.

Well I was thinking of bringing in an ex-republic Soldier and an HK-47 assassin unit with major technical issues. Of course the HK would be a support role for the soldier. Let me know if that works for you.

Ex-soldier is fine. What kind of issues are we talkin' about with the droid? Something to make it kinda finnicky and less likely to take direct orders? Also, I believe HK-47 was kind of a unique character. I can't remember if it was just him alone, or if there were others that were all destroyed. Either way, it would prolly be better to go with either the HK-50s or an HK-24 model.

HK-24s were all bought up by some rich tycoon and all destroyed in an explosion (that's what I was getting confused with the HK-47 model). The 50's were sent out into the galaxy to kill off Jedi. So I think some remnant HK-50s are the most likely candidate in this case.

But yeah, as long as the assassin droid is downplayed in their capacity by some technical b/s, it's fine. HKs were notorious badasses, and my only concern is that the ex-soldier's droid counterpart might get leaned on too much to get out of a dicey situation.

Ah got it. Yeah he's gonna be more of a smart-ass than a fighter. knows how to fly better than shoot. Has his own personality and very sarcastic.

But he's gonna talk like an HK unit, so everything will start with "statement" or "sarcastic" or "question".

okie dokie. That's fine. Write up their profiles at your leisure and submit them when you're ready.
