Plot Summary
The Quest for the Dragon Pearls:
left-aligned image
Once upon a time, in a nightmarish galaxy, far far away, Kjang the World-Conqueror has stepped into the role of Galactic Emperor. In the five short years of his rule he has enslaved nearly every one of the Core planets to add to his ever-growing Empire of Eternal Undead. His ultimate goal, however, remains in seeking the five Cosmic Dragons in order to obtain the Infinite Dragon Pearls. Even if no one out in the wide-open black has stepped forward, thinking themselves powerful enough to take down Emperor Kjang, everyone seems to know that if he were to get his hands on the Pearls it would spell doom for the galaxy. Rumor has it that once he has the pearls, Kjang will have the power to create a vortex of undeath with just a snap of his fingers that will engulf the entire galaxy.

Meanwhile, in a pirate port on the water planet, Namken, the crew of the Canderous await repairs in the drydock. As you sit in the cantina of the Rusty Squid, several different species of fish and amphibian beings eye you suspiciously and then look away as your surly, human captain, Dahk Jetstar enters the cantina and approaches your table, "I found us a job." Now, normally this would have been great news but this time, the whole crew knew that since that last escape from Imperial entanglement had gotten so dicey that the Canderous wasn't going anywhere for a while. That meant whatever job Captain Dahk had found was on this planet, "There is a derelict hyper-fuel freighter beached on an island just two hours out from here. You know, one of the big ones." The only problem was, there had to be a catch, these jobs always had catches, those jobs your crew just had to take to pay for repairs. The captain continued, "Gather your gear, a boatman has agreed to take us out within the hour."

Captain Dahk has never steered you wrong, sure, you are technically a pirate crew, a bunch of outlaws and scallywags but that was just according to Imperial Law. There was nothing wrong about living a little left of the law to make ends meet. Captain Dahk has looked out for you and maybe you have looked out for him, he isn't a bad guy, he was a charming son of a gun and a hell of a pilot but he wasn't dishonest and he never left a man or woman behind, it was part of his code. Supposedly, Dahk had been a soldier in the Empire before Kjang had taken control and turned the entire legion into an undead scourge. He doesn't like to talk about his past much though.

About three hours later, the Quarren sailors anchored their boat near the three-quarter aft docking door, you and the rest of the crew can see the blue Namken sun setting behind the colossal freighter ship. This size of a ship wasn't ever supposed to land on a planet and the thing itself was the size of a small city. As you look to your left, you see the head of the tanker resting on the sandy white beach of a small island, then to your right the tail of the tanker disappears under the ocean surface about halfway down the body. As you look back to the blastdoor, you can see why no one else has plundered this ship, the two triangles, side by side with one point each connected making a sharp infinity loop, the sign of the Eternal Empire.

Captain Dahk steps up to the door and examines the keypad, "Be handy to have a code cylinder about now." He intones with a hint of despair.

@hiruma: yes, you are correct. If you want a character that has that coming of age journey feel or an experienced veteran type, you can play either based on the amount of experience you give them in their backstory. Also, this leaves it open for a pupil/mentor pair of characters.

Definitely interested, will read up on the system and see what inspiration comes if you will accept this as placeholder for character to follow?

EDIT: Sorry that idea might not work so well on a pirate ship.

Initial thoughts are Scout with the Mechanist (companion) archetype. Companion is a tracker droid, thinking dog/wolf form so he is kinda like that old cowboy from Battle angel Alita played by Jeff Fahey. A packmaster type hunter, just the one hound for now but hope to build up to a few more later and have a proper pack

@A7ice: this is an alternate timeline from SW but if I were to relate to a time period, it would be late Jedi Purge era.

I see... well, then why not set it up in some distant time, like 1500 BBY or 2000 ABY?

Anyway, so, Jedi/Sith are not possible? I mean, I thought about Sentinel, which also begs a question - do I have to be Light Side user if you allow Force users?

@A7ice: Jedi and sith are very possible, more possible even since they are essentially less of a big deal in the galaxy and more like reclusive religious orders. Go sentinel. Read the little spoiler button in the details section.

Gurrfupayyc
right-aligned image

Name: Gurrfupayyc (Gurf)
Species: Wookie
Gender: Male
Age: 100
Class/level: Berserker (Bloodstorm) lv. 5
Background: Barbarian
Personality trait 1: I place no stock in wealthy or well-mannered folk. Money and manners won't save you from a hungry rancor.
Personality trait 2: I watch over my friends as if they were a litter of newborn pups.
Bond:I will bring terrible wrath down on the Darkdoers who destroyed my homeland
Ideal: Greater Good. It is each person's responsibility to make the most happiness for the whole tribe. (Light)
Flaw: Don't expect me to save those who can't save themselves. It is nature's way that the strong thrive and the weak perish.

Appearance: 7' 10" tall, weighing 280 pounds and covered in black and brown dappled fur, Gruf is what non-Wookiees expect a Wookiee to be. With the addition of an enormous vibroaxe, a bandolier with Techaxes, powerpacks and a holstered Blaster, he looks ready to take on anyone. The wooden figurine of a feline strapped to his forehead with leather thongs, and his bright red eyes give most looking at him the idea that he is a crazed savage. Another Wookie sees a 'Defender of the Forests'.

Personality: Gurf sees Dahk, and his crew, as replacements for his Clan. He is fiercely loyal to all of them, providing they remain loyal to the Tribal elder. He is quiet and pensive after 45 years amongst other species who do not understand him, and will take any opportunity to be amongst trees. His age, and lack of a clear place within the crew, mean that he is often alone with his thoughts: and that seems to be a dark place. Yet he can be kind and playful; and is fond of children of all.species. He is an enigma that few have tried to unravel.
Backstory: Born in the backwoods of Kashyyyk, Gurf grew to adulthood in the 'Lioness' Clan. He learned to live amongst the trees, to trust his family and Clan with his life, and to follow the Honour Code of his people. As an adult, he joined the warbands that raided nearby Clans for resources; showing himself to be a master of the rage within him. As his prowess grew, his reputation grew: he was a mighty Defender of the Forests and expected to wear his Clan totem on his forehead at all times. He was given the honorific name of Lionpaw.

He was 55 when the wars came to the Lioness Clan. As Clones in white armour stormed into the forests, Gruf fought them, using his recently gained ability to throw axes and have them return to him with great effect. But there were too many of them, and they were too well equipped. They pushed the Clan back towards their home lands and the elders and young were at risk. Gurf fought until he collapsed wounded and exhausted and surrounded by the bodies of his foes.

He awoke three days later to find a human tending his wounds, and his people long gone. This act of kindness meant that, even though his people might still need him, he made the decision to team up with the human whose name was Jahk Jetstar. The human was a smuggler with a small freighter, who had landed near the battlefield to search for items he could sell. He left with a full load and a new bodyguard. The human, and his Wookiee companion, had many adventures and when old age led Jack to decide to settle down he asked his old friend, who by now was faster and deadlier than ever, to ship out with his son, Dahk, in the ship their years of smuggling had allowed them to buy. Having know the boy since he was born, Gurf agreed and became the first member of the Coruscant's crew.

'Uncle' Gurf has no formal rank or position on the ship. He just is. If Dahk needs muscle, Gurf is there! If Dahk needs help, it is given even if it was not asked for. And all the time, Gurf waits to hear from the Lioness Clan. Nothing else will draw him from the side of his adopted family.

Relations:
Dahk Jetstar:Gurf is close to the Captain. He allows Dahk to be Captain but anyone who wanted to take the job off him knows Gurf is ready to die to defend him. Gurf fights alongside him in battle and follows his orders without question. Dahk has known Gurf since his birth and has seen a very different side to the Wookiee than most other humans. Dahk is able to understand Shyriiwook so can translate for Gurf if he wants to.
Arida Sygg: She is dangerous. She might try to remove Dahk from the captaincy. Gurf watches her carefully. She is powerful but she is not invulnerable. If she makes a move, she will have him to contend with.
While she remains loyal, Gurf regards her as useful and an asset to the crew.
Monday Bindat: A Healer. Someone who appreciates the wonders of being part of a team. Gurf likes Mundat, though the Ithorian seems scared of him. Gurf keeps aloof from Mundat but watches over him. No need to scare someone who you like.
Dahmia: Gurf can feel the Light in Dhamia. He approves of her, and does not feel she is a threat to Dahk. Gurf likes her but keeps his distance simply because they have little in common.
Tok: Gurf can feel the Light in Tok. He approves of him, and does not feel he is a threat to Dahk. Gurf likes him but keeps his distance simply because they have little in common.
Laar: If there is a crewman, Gurf understands, it is Laar. Both are hunters, and have a similar view of others though the Kaleesh is a bit too close to the Dark for Gurfs liking. But Shadow: here is a droid made in the feline form wirh the stature of the Totem animal of his Clan. He cannot help but like her, and the feeling appears to be mutual.
Traj: The gruff soldier has made an impression on Gurf. He has the swagger and bravado expected of a warrior. He has Gurf's back in a fight and that counts for a lot. As a result, Gurf appreciates him.
Roku Roku is an emigma. Clearly on the side of Light, they are a cipher. As such, they need to be watched - not as careully as Arida, but watched.
Lunara: After 14 years on the ship, if there is one shipmate he gets on with it is Lunara. The two have fight alongisde each other regularly, and she was there when his attempts to chat up a female wookiee brought about a bar fight. She can't understand his speech, but she understands him.

NotesI made a start on a character in the online system. Will complete it if chosen but most of the major decisions made.

The rules make them fun to play by the look of it. And it would be fun to hear what everyone says but not be able to talk to them. We might need some sort of buddying up to make it work!
