Darays - My original application was also Anzati, although I kept that part of the application secret. Hence Zazaq's comments.

I'll be reposting two different applications, so that Zazaq can go with the one that makes the most sense to his idea of the game.

The Hypnosis combined with 3 bonus feats is pretty intense. Granted, we are on a Force saturated world, so you could make it a "Use Force" check to use it if it gets over powered. The abilities, mechanically, aren't really that bad. I personally wouldn't feel threatened playing a human beside one, by the rules. I'd just use my vastly superior charisma to help turn the other students and teachers against him haha

It is more the theme. Because we are young kids, I would imagine the campaign is going to encompass us growing in power and age and becoming young adults, ready to wreak havoc in the galaxy. An Anzati wouldn't age the way we do, and would either need to start at the development equivalent of late teens-early adult, or it would remain a child and therefore be very unreasonable (role-play wise) to see keep up with us in terms of power. The same sort of problem applies with Wookies, because they live multi-century lives. The long-lived races are designed for middle aged campaigns.

Also, Anzati are essentially anathema to organizations like the Sith. The instructors know the race will eventually surpass them in power and will, by their own teachings, kill them and absorb their power. Force sensitive people and organizations do their best to eliminate Anzati, and they in turn do their damnedest to hide and remain aloof from any and all familiarity to avoid being murdered in a Salem style torch-and-pitchfork mob.

All of this is just my pure speculative opinion. As I said earlier, I personally would in no way be opposed to playing with one, and as GM I wouldn't feel limited by source material. Maybe we haven't heard of them. Maybe this one doesn't know his cultural heritage, or maybe none of this is fact based in any way. Maybe nobody around knows anything about them.

I'm willing to change if needed... Can't blame a guy for defending his choices :P

Is kinda funny two of us picked that race though

I would've too! They're super neat, and I'm going to submit one to the other campaign! They might work here, I'm not the GM nor do I have any say. I wish you all the best, but not so much best thatyou all beat me and knock my app out of the running!

I've posted a Ubese and an Umbaran. One of the two should fit.

My Anzati was intended to be a weapon for the master, a secret tool to be used against dangers internal and external.

My Ubese is a rage machine in the making, and I hope to make her a Sith Juggernaut. My Umbaran, on the other hand, is the face of civilization and culture. The genteel face of a deceiver.

We'll see if either fits Zazaq's idea.

BigBangTequilla kind of made me realize Anzat's aren't going to work. I'm planning on doing a short campaign mission or two, followed by a year time skip and everyone bumping a level. You wouldn't really be aging properly as an Anzat, though the powers don't really look that OP to be honest. Also Tequilla is probably right about a sith wanting to kill them, and since the academy's master has that read mind power I think hiding it wouldn't go over too well.

Xiasmus your other two aps are fine, back whichever one you prefer, though someone is already making a charismatic type sith.

So charismatic she's going to knock Palpatine's pants off and marry Mace Windu.

Maybe.

Bold move sir, the man who died at the hands of a great Sith Lord. I believe it is Darach, and the Sith Lord is Malgus. I love that game. Just got Satele Shan's armour and made it available to all my characters.

Zazaq - I will be going with my Ubese application, then. I'll add a roleplay sample, and give you some extension of background.

Appreciate it, sorry I didn't tell you Azat wouldn't work sooner, or in the first post like a competent gm would have done.

By the way everyone I hope to make my selection and start play be February 1rst at the latest.

Alright, App complete. I will be editing as needed and cleaning up some of the language but for now I'm done. Fingers crossed Zazaq, this game seems awesome.

It's all good. I'll adjust the concept accordingly. The other race I've always enjoyed playing was Miraluka, so I'll take a look and see what I can fit
