Re-opening this application thread until September 12th for new player applications. We've lost some players due to natural attrition. Hoping to gain 2-3 new players.

The party currently has a Kyuzo and Zeltron, which are a Sector Ranger and Pilot respectively. They have picked up on some strange goings-on in their introduction thread(s) and the main game has still yet to start. New player will be able to skip the introduction threads and join the others in the main thread and start to figure out what exactly is going on (what the bad guys are up to).

You can scan this whole thread for answers to any questions you might have, but please ask anything you want as my newer answers will be tailored to how the game has gone so far.

I am a huge Star Wars fan and would love to get into the game. To be honest I am new to this type of RPing but everyone needs to start somewhere!

If you are willing to play with someone new to this I will make my character sheet and apply!

I'm always willing to help someone get adjusted to the website. Have you ever played the FFG version of Star Wars before?

Character Application
right-aligned image

Character Name: Harvester
Species: Gank
Career: Technician
Specialization(s): Cyber Tech/Doctor
Motivation: Service- Harvester, as with most of his species, are in service to the Hutts specifically Jabba the Hutt.
Obligation: Debt- Harvester has a somewhat unhealthy obsession with cybernetics whether it’s modifying his own body, those of his species, and taking them from the unconscious bodies of his “donors”. Jabba fed this obsession putting the Gank further into his debt. Now it’s time to pay the piper…um uh Hutt.

Description: Harvester has gone with a black and yellow color scheme for his armor and cybernetic enhancements. It is extremely hard to tell the difference between what is machine and what is flesh. His movements are always with purpose, and his gaze constantly shifts around as if he is looking for someone or something. When the gaze locks onto its target, one can only hope it’s not them.

Background:Harvester grew up under typical Gank society under Hutt rule on Nal Hutta. His first enhancement was a Multi Tool hand that allowed him to make repairs on his peers as well as start his path to his perception of cyber singularity. One very apparent difference between him and his peers was his ability of self control. Where others would respond to aggression or violence in kind, he would remove himself from the situation and lie in wait until the perpetrator was asleep to exact his revenge.

Jabba took notice of this as well as his skill to extract vital organs and remove cybernetic enhancements from individuals that had failed in their duties or debts to the Hutts. There were times for an axe and there were times when a scalpel was more appropriate. The Gank doctor was given his own setup for enhancing Jabba’s soldiers as well as organlegging. Despite the work he did, Harvester was never intentionally cruel and always made sure his patients were put under or dead before operation. He also did not go out of his way to harm others without a contract or provocation even going so far as to learn the pressure points of various species and using shock gloves to incapacitate rather than kill. Somebody had to do the dirty work, and he was really good at it.

The years went on and Jabba funded his self improvement projects. The debt started to pile up as Jabba intended until the perfect job was lined up for Harvester. There was an individual on Coruscant (TBD by GM) that had a Swift 78B Vessel Courier System as well as a Cortex Bomb implanted in their brain. The courier system had large amounts of personal data on many of the major players in the Coruscant Underworld. The catch is that any attempt to access the data, remove the implant, or death of the host would trigger the cortex bomb killing the host and destroying all the paydata. The only way to retrieve the data was to remove the cortex bomb first then the data implant without killing the host. A tall order but Jabba had faith in Harvester…and the micro explosives in Harvester’s implants should he fail. The reward would be removal of all of his debt as well as getting to keep the Courier System and cortex bomb once the data was transferred over. How could he refuse?

It never looked finished to me. There is an additional 400XP to spend for a character, on top of your species starting XP.

Was this based on canon at all? Not overly familiar with the Gank, personally. Cybertech/Doctor is a good combo.

Early history

The Ganks' original homeworld was unknown to outsiders. However, at some point in their history, members of the species voyaged to Nar Shaddaa, which, over time, became their adopted home. There they took to working for the Hutts as assassins, bodyguards, bounty hunters, guards, and mercenaries. Their lust for blood, their affinity for working together as an effective team, and their ability to communicate with each other through mechanized means made Ganks prized assets of many a Hutt gangster, so Ganks were frequently seen on the moon as part of Hutt entourages.

The Ganks became infamous for their violent ways during the Gank Massacres, which erupted in 4800 BBY. At the time, Neimoidian merchants discovered ryll spice on the planet Ryloth and cornered the market in its distribution. The monopoly agitated the Porporite species, for whom ryll was highly addictive, sending them into homicidal rages upon its consumption. Neighboring factions, including the Neimoidians themselves,hired the Ganks for protection from the Porporites and to eliminate the threat they posed. The Gank clans committed genocide on the spice-addicted species, completely wiping them out. Encouraged by their success,the Ganks then embarked on a full scale war against the Galactic Republic. Their uprising was put down in 4775 BBY by the Jedi and their Republic allies after Supreme Chancellor Vocatara sent a force of juggernaut war droids and the Rocket-Jumper Elite Advance Unit to stop them. The Neimoidians' use of Gank mercenaries rather than bounty hunters also constituted the first significant challenge to the dominance of the Bounty Hunters' Guild. In response, some guild members took a page from the Ganks and worked for whomever paid the most, eventually fracturing the guild as more hard-line members quit in disgust.

As early as 3999 BBY,the species had come to be known as "Gank Killers" due to their penchant for killing other sentients without remorse. During the Cold War, a period of unrest between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, the word "gank" was used as an insult in general galactic parlance. The species remained closely associated with the Hutts, although one group of Gank mercenaries moved into Imperial territory and geared up to pillage Empire-aligned planets. When the Sith Empire spotted them, they dispatched an operative to negotiate with the Ganks and persuade them to leave peacefully, thus avoiding hostilities between the Empire and the Hutts. The name "Gank Killer" remained current into the Clone Wars, when the Besalisk restauranteur Dexter Jettster punned that the sliders he sold at his diner on the planet Coruscant had "no additives or Gank fillers."

By the latter years of the Galactic Republic, most Ganks lived in the lowest levels of Nar Shaddaa. According to a legend that arose during the period and remained popular among Jedi Padawans, a group of fourteen Ganks once confronted the Korun Jedi Master Mace Windu, surrounding him with blasters drawn. Windu simply placed his hand on his lightsaber, looked each Gank in the eye, and said, "It's your decision." They dropped their weapons and turned themselves in to their would-be opponent. Some Jedi thought the tale apocryphal, but it became an integral part of Windu's mystique among the members of his order.

Description
The Ganks were a sentient humanoid species of fur-covered carnivores. The typical member of the species had a face that was squared-off and yellow in color, the expression trapped in a perpetual snarl that non-Ganks found unattractive. Small, mean-looking eyes peered from above the maw, and ears facilitated the sense of hearing. The head sat atop a thick neck, which emerged from between broad, strong shoulders. These capped two thickset, powerful arms, which terminated in hands with five fingers each. In contrast, their legs were relatively short; over all, the average member of the species stood 1.6 meters tall. Their heavy build afforded Ganks great strength, yet they were also spry runners. They augmented their bodies with cybernetics, making them a species of cyborgs. These implants allowed Ganks to engage in silent communication with their fellows.

Cybernetics maximum can't include the boost from the +1 Brawn cybernetic.

Also, the A-Wing isn't really available in this era (100 years before the movies), but we can just pretend it's some other kind of ship. MandalMotors M3-A Scyk Interceptor might be more appropriate for Scum to be using anyways.

1) Removed Digital Lockpick implant
2) Selected G-1A Heavy Starfighter as ship for increased passengers and cargo for a more bounty Hunter home type feel (eventually will upgrade with cells for prisoners)
3) removed Gunner droid brain for Advanced Targeting System
4) purchased a Bacta Tank that is setup on the ship for when he (or teammate) gets shot up really bad
5) swapped out tier 1 Resolve for tier 1 Bacta Specialist on Doctor talent tree
