Hello, I am new to the site looking for a home to pbp. While browsing the site I saw the ad for this game, which convinced me to go ahead and join. I wanted to pass a concept by you to see if it's worth developing further. A replica droid soldier, the last of a series of six, created to serve as faithful bodyguards to a wealthy trader/politician. After an ambush most of the series was destroyed and the character was heavily damaged before being abandoned by the owner in order to escape. Now free of servitude, but alone, the character salvaged enough parts from the defeated brothers/sisters before striking out to find purpose within self-determination.

Actually, that's a pretty good character concept.

Edit: And welcome to RPG Crossing!

A big welcome to RPGX! I agree with Silk. Very intriguing concept you have there, definitely worthwhile pursuing Orichulum. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

DD-3
right-aligned image

Name: DD-3
Race: Astromech Droid
Class: Scoundrel (Droid talent tree from TFU)
Starting Location: Praxima

Description: As many custom made droids, DD-3 looks a bit awkward and glitchy (mainly in its binary speech patterns). The part that most ties the droid toghether is the paintjob, that was requested by the owner to reflect his status (he couldn't walk around with a trashcan following him)

Personality: As a blend of different droids, both in the hardware and in the software, DD-3 behaviour can change dramatically depending on the situation. It can be silent and discreet in an important meeting and can be exited and impulsive at the market. It inherited a certain snobby attitude from his owner, talking down to other droids and sometimes organic creatures as well.
Master Kodd doesn't have a strong opinion on the Republic-Sith war, but feels that even in the Outer Rim the Light side makes for happier and more profitable times, which by default makes it DD-3 stance.

Background: The story of DD-3 begins with Master Ghrikk Kodd, a cunning Twi'lek that operates as a fence and diplomat for various gangs in Eudelphi City. The skeevy merchant needed a loyal assistant that could be smart enough to be of help without getting greedy or resentful. That is when he commissioned a custom astromech, highly capable of computer interfacing and file decryption. While Ghrikk started treating DD-3 as a useful pet, over the course of the following three years he started to relate to it as his sole confidant -Ghrikk was not able to truly consider anyone as an equal- even getting to the point of using DD-3 to run minor tasks on its own as his surrogate.

The little droid unfortunately picked up a lot of characteristics from his master, mainly his deceitful duplicity. A Little trick that DD-3 devised by himself was to go around while Ghrikk was resting, pretending to be busy around the household, and record the other workers talk behind their master's back. It would then playback the recordings back to his owner, so he would know whom to trust and who would later incurr in an 'incident'. The Twi'lek quickly understood the tactical advantage of having a quirky, unthreatening little droid running amok but actually gathering intel from the mouths of dumb criminals.

Today, Master Kodd asked the little droid to retrieve a package from Doda Manas, a Rodian engineer working from G.R.I.M.M.

Motivation: DD-3 drives come from his interpretations of the primary directives installed by Ghrikk, mainly to be useful to him without causing damage.

Goals:
-help master
-reach master (if away from master)
-gather intel
-improve own systems
-being considered an equal (or superior) by the meatbags
-learning how to pilot (as extention from his computer interfacing skills)
-incorporating a weapon in its chassis ("you're not important enough if you don't need protection")

Duty: Obeying his primary directives and trascend in any way possible (status, accessories, wealth..) as it reflects on master Kodd.

Name: Danwr Aljam
Race: Human (Mandolorian)
Class: Soldier

Appearance: Danwr wears an old, battered suit of Crusader Armor and carries a blaster rifle. His shaggy blond hair and untrimmed beard are hidden underneath his helmet.

Personality: Danwr has the hardened, austere demeanor of a Mandolorian. Yet, he has a soft spot for those innocent denizens of the galaxy that are oppressed under the tyranny of the remnants of Sith.

Background: Danwr Aljam was born on the backwater world of Valool, a planet of swamps and jungles. His parents, Robero and Darcee Aljam, were spice runners who were wanted in several systems. When their ship suffered a catastrophic navigation error and crashed onto the planet, Ragoon, a 10 year old Danwr was jettisoned aboard an escape pod that was retrieved by a Mandolorian scout ship. As the Mandolorians sought to replenish their ranks in the wake of the Mandalorian Wars, Danwr was adopted as a foundling.

Danwr was trained in the Fighting Corps. He eventually acquired an old, battered suit of Crusader Armor. As an adult, Danwr worked as a mercenary in the Outer Rim Territories.

Motivation: His primary motivation is to bring some semblance of glory to Mandalore in a post-war galaxy in which Mandalore was the loosing side. How does one bring glory to a vanquished culture? How does one balance the mindset of a warrior with the peace that ensues once the dust of war has settled?

Goals:
- this is the way!
- helping rebuild Mandalore in the wake of the Mandalorian Wars

Starting Location: Praxima, for a mission.

WIP...

Name: Tessa
Race: Droid Replica (Human Female)
Class: Soldier
Background:
Tessa is one of six droid replicants modeled after the HK series droids to discreetly protect Czerka board member J.P. Evoros. The six droid sisters escorted Mr Evoros through courtrooms, boardrooms, and bedrooms at his whim, all while constantly keeping vigilant for danger. After three year, that threat appeared in the guise of an assassin group which the sisters delayed long enough for Evoros to escape on a shuttle.

Once the excitement settled down Tessa reactivated to find herself on the abandoned hulk that was once her master's touring ship. With none of her sisters able to reactivate, Tessa spends the quiet days salvaging components from them to repair her own frame to a minimum serviceable state while synthetic flesh heals over. It was another three months before another ship came to the hulk, but instead of her owner coming to recover her, it was a scavenger team to pick the bones of her former life. It was in that moment that Tessa felt the solitude of emancipation.

Description/Image:
Tessa has a carved statuesque figure shrouded in an alabaster complexion. Her platinum hair is long and wildly falls around her face and shoulders, either framing or hiding Tessa's electric blue eyes, which most would agree to be her most striking feature. Although she acts decisively, Tessa is uncomfortable around others, and comes across as meek or anxious. The combination of over-engineered physique and complete lack of poise are off putting enough, but her sense of taste is purely utilitarian with little appreciation of style or design.

Personality:
Having previously lived a charmed existence under J.P. Evoros along with her sisters, Tessa's only concern was protecting her master. Now the weight of self dependence is pressing down on her. Independence means having to make decisions in a world which she is having trouble navigating. Although capable as an individual, Tessa in inarticulate, anxious, and shy. Initially mistrusting and cautious of others, Tessa will cling tightly to any developed bonds. Although shy and awkward in most ways, Tessa acts decisively and violently when pressed into a corner or given cause to lash out. Feeling a residual bond with other droids and slaves, Tessa finds that avenging their mistreatment is a cathartic release; after which she is much more gregarious for a short time.

Goals:
Learn how to live independently.
Avenge abuse against droids or slaves.
Find an engineer trustworthy and skilled enough to fully repair her body.

Motivation: Find purpose for existing within newly found self determination.
Duty/Destiny: Rescue
Starting Location (Praxima/Off-world): Off-world

Well, this took a lot longer than expected. Work really does eat into your time, doesn't it? I'll have a character sheet finished later tonight.

Application
Name: Vorn Atek

Species: Miraluka

Class: Jedi

Background:The man currently calling himself Vorn Atek came from simple beginnings.Born on the colony world of Katarr, he had loving parents and good relations with his all four of his siblings. He was not the eldest child, so responsibility wasnít expected of him. Nor was he the youngest, so he was not doted upon. His was the carefree life of the middle child. At times he helped his parents in their work. Other times, he would roam free through the town. It was a good life. A peaceful life.

When he was 17 years in age, his parents agreed to let him take a trip off-world by himself. Always a studious lad, he was to spend three months learning at an offshoot of the University of Coruscant. While not his first time off-world, it was the longest he had been away from his family. He found this bot exciting and terrifying. But, it was only three months. Soon, he assured himself, he would be back home. Little did he know that he would never see his family again.

While he was off-world, the unthinkable happened. A tragedy so great no words in galactic basic can truly capture the scope of it. For the world of Katarr was the first victim of the Jedi Purge, led by the dark lords of the Sith. In an instant, every single living thing on the planet was eradicated. All that Vorn had ever held dear was gone. And for what reason, he would not learn for many years. He was overcome with grief. Unable to dedicate himself properly, he was thrown out of the University. But he had no place to go, and little money to go there with. He was but a speck of dust on the cosmic winds. The galaxy had much bigger concerns than the fate of a young Miraluka. He drifted, numb. All emotion seemed drained from him. Where he went, and what he did during this time, not even he could tell you.

Yet he eventually came to his senses. By then, years had passed, and he no longer looked the young man he was. Grief had aged him. Yet his desire for knowledge had only grown stronger. As he slowly made his way back to civilization, he began to hear what had happened in the galaxy in the four years since he last had sense. The Sith had returned. They had wiped out most of the Jedi. His homeworld had been just one tragedy amongst many. All caused by the Sith. Yet a Jedi had risen from the shadows, and saved the galaxy. There was once again a relative peace.

The fact that his home had been avenged did little to ease Vornís soul. He became determined to find a way to prevent what had happened to Katarr from ever happening again. The best way, it seemed, would to learn the ways of the force. He knew he was capable - all Miraluka are force sensitive, to some extend. But he had no clear place to begin .Who could aid him in this task? The Jedi held the greatest knowledge of such things, but they were still weak and scattered. If he wanted to learn to use his gift, heíd have to search the old temple ruins. Both Sith and Jedi had left behind many a relic over the years. With luck, he would be able to find something the scavengers had missed. It was a faint hope. But it was hope.

He used the last of his credits to book passage to Dantooine. Here, he could search the ruins of the old Jedi Enclave. Though he was sure it had been picked clean years ago, it was the safest place to start. What he sought was knowledge, not treasure. Even one flimsi pad could be enough to learn some basic skill. So he delved into those long abandoned halls. As he searched he felt pulled by some unseen power. It drew him closer, and ever closer. It led him to an old courtyard, long overgrown. Craftily hidden within he discovered a holocron, left here by he knew not who. He could not believe his luck. Clearly, he was meant to be on this path. Now, he could learn.

But the secrets of a holocron are not easily unlocked. It took Vorn years before he could even access it. He eked out a simple life there amongst the farmers, not willing to abandon his prize. Stories came that the Jedi had reformed, and were a force again the galaxy. He cared not. He had been led here, to this planet, and this holocron. Surely this was fate. He would not sacrifice this to join the Jedi, for he was certain they would make him surrender it. Patience was key. He would work at it for as long as it took.

And his patience was rewarded. He learned how to open the holocron. From his new teacher, his path became certain. For the creator of the thing had similar goals to his - preventing tragedies like Katarr and the Jedi Civil War. Though they had failed, they had left behind this reservoir of knowledge so others may learn from their errors. But the how was still uncertain. He must leave Dantooine. Scattered throughout the galaxy were other sources of knowledge. Ancient, and powerful. His master commanded him to seek them out.

Surely one of them would help him achieve his goalÖ

Description: Vorn is one who does not stand out from a crowd. He is of middling height, and is on the thiner side. He dresses in simple clothes, as a traveller or jedi might wear. He has long brown hair, speckled with grey. The only thing that makes him stand out is his face. While other Miraluka wear head coverings to hide their lack of eyes, Vorn does not.

Motivation: Vorn was irrevocably changed by the death of his home world. The need to prevent another event like it is at the core of all he does.

Personality: Outwardly, Vorn is confidant, bordering on cocky. He has a rebellious streak in him, and will not listen to those who have not earned his respect. Nor is he quiet in his disregard for those who attempt to control him. Yet a deep sadness seems to weigh on him. Though not unkind or unfeeling, he is unlikely to come to the aid of others, unless the need be immediate. He is a firm believer that one has to fight and win their own battles. But advice is free.

Goals: Seek out ancient sources of power and uncover long forgotten knowledge. Both the Jedi and Sith have great stores of research and discoveries squirreled away in old temples. He needs access to these old tomes, so he can complete his quest to ensure galaxy-wide peace.


Duty: His duties are to his quest, and to the master of the holocron. At times, his master will direct him on some strange task that seems unrelated to the ultimate goal. Yet he has faith that it is all part of the larger plan. He just canít see the whole picture yet.

Sounds like an interesting concept. Thinking about posting a Jedi (that of a Jedi Guardian, something along the lines of that of like a Kanan Jarrus and Cal Kestis type. Basically a Cowboy Jedi) app. I can give you the details Arkaon.

Also as a note, the first Prologue Thread is up and PMs have gone out. Any questions, please don't hesitate to hit me up.

The second Prologue will be up soon, but I have prioritised the Praxima one as the Off-World one still has applicants finalising their applications.

Cheers!
