    nobody has weapons in the beginning, they will have to be bought or made.

    And im sure some people will ahve weapons, soldiers issued with them, and most people would have some form of protection, depending on their background.

    well yeah after training you will be able to have more weapons yes, or make more weapons, but only soldieres, rebel soldieres start with basic blasters for training.

    Is that really realistic, i mean luc had a hnting rifle as just a farmoby on tatooine, other farmers would need weapons to efend against prey, people who grow up in cities may need added protection and so on.

    And what about this money is it evenly distributed? is that even realistic?

    And i suppose if you get jedi training they nad all your money and stuff, since jedis arent allowed to own possentions.....






    meh, I suppose I'm just wasting time here, in anticipation of this thing actually starting, wouldnt it be more porductivre to go and kick nienor?

    What about home-made weapons? Can a character start out with weapons they made themselves? And if so, is their starting credits reduced?

    no the amount of credits you get depends on where, how you start, it may be unfair even...like who wants to be a politician will get more money then somebody who joins the rebellion cause the rebellion is poor, same with joining the empire but they are greedy.
    To make money you have the highest chances in politics and business

    When you make weapons you still need skill + you need equipment for it you have to buy. so wetether you plan to make a lot of weapons its maybe wise to buy equipment instead of a weapon from the start. For other people they better just buy a blaster. Soldiers get immediatly basic blasters and will get more advanced weapons when their training progresses. I just found out a new kind of trooper, a clone assasin which will be changed in a storm assasin they use stabbing weapons attached to their arms to kill, and because of changes in their genetics, they are faster than the eye can see. They don't use blasters tho.

    @Anakin - Oh yeah, they were in Star Wars Episode II video game. Also, with making a weapon, can a character get an advantage to making a weapon that is only used on their home planet or by their species, like the Wookie Bowcaster or Admiral Aakbar's weapon (I dont think it was in the movie, but I remember the action figure had it).

    yes, Although I think other people can make bowcasters too, but with only the purpose to sell it, since bowcasters are pretty heavy weapons and the empire doesn't use bowcasters Wookiees mostly use them. I don't know about Ackbar's weapon tho...haven't seen it...but I do know about weapons used underwater, but we only have a certain amount of species, not all of them, and mon calamari is not one of them. I think we have a decent amount of species to start this game and to make it interesting enough.

    We are working now on laws on the planets...now these laws are not rules in the game, cause laws can be broken, it just will add to the storyline of the game.

    -its set in the timeline of the empîre, but we made changed to it, so it still has aspects in it from the prequels. The Jedi are still there in huge numbers for example.
    -No, this probably will be something really new, but we are asking help from other people who have experience in this
    -cool that you have your own character, but changes will have to be made to it so that the character will fit in the game.

    I have had experience in this..... but the RPG was based on superheroes.... but you got to pick which superhero u wanted to be.... but in order to do that u needed to fill out this basic applictation.... heres an example...

    Screen Name:

    Character you would like to play:

    Powers:

    Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):

    Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

    1)

    2)

    3)

    Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you plan to do with the character you've chosen (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?):

    How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG:

    Color and font you plan on using for your characters speech (Might not be applicable but it makes the roster pretty):

    Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?

    How did you find out about this game, Recruitment thread/word of post/seeing the RPG OOC/IC thread?

    Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in:


    So since the superhero RPG continuates for a long time they go by seasons.... for example if one plot ends and another plot starts to whip up they go to season 2 and so forth....

    what about fallen jedi who become bounty hunters? who may then become sith (story of my life...)

    btw, wouldn't there have to be a limit on the number of sith?
