exactly what i was questioning, having characters as sith or jedi when the empire is around, after all, 'always two there are, no more, no less' as yoda puts it for the sith, so no one can be them if you are RPing all the main characters. And any would be in hiding. Also it would be difficult and clumsy to dance around all the fvents that happen within that timeframe without ruinign some of the 'magic' to it. I just think, if its set between the kotor era and the current era, all the potions are open, but there are still limits, theres the jedi council still to rule over the jedi, and the sith can plot in secret etc. there was the sith army in kotor that would function fine on its own as the replacement for the empire.......and who really wants to be a storm trooper anyway? its just, since the whole timeframe isnt fleshed out we can be more flexible, but as the creator of the RPG you can still place limits if you see neccesary. Anyway star wars is always cool, lightabers are enough to tempt me into this RPG. Can I be a Grey Jedi by any chance?
