Title: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on January 09, 2018, 08:14:52 PM
Hello everyone and welcome to my T&P game.  My goal for this game is to help bring new and returning players into a cooperative TOR RP that has Republic, Independent, and Imperial forces all working together to defeat a common enemy. Your characters can be force userís, Bounty Hunters, Imperial Agents, so please donít think you have to be a Jedi or Sith. While this is a training and probationary RP I do welcome current and returning players to join in as well, the more the merrier.

My hope is that this game is fairly fast moving with everyone playing able to make one or two posts a week. Of course as we all know sometime real life sometimes gets in the way so if you are going to be gone for any extended period of time just let me know so your character can be NPCíed until your return.

As for character sheets you can find the template in the TOR ERA T&P Characters thread. Feel free to run any ideas you have by me. Once your characters are finished please post them in the Rogueís Gallery (Severusís RG thread) either Krace or B1ondeange1 will review them and either write approved above the top of the post or message you and CC me with any proposed changes.

Once we get a few players from a faction approved I will start a planetary thread where you can start introducing your characters. Once we have all factions up and running we will get the game going in full force.

Thank you all for taking the time to consider playing in this game and please post any questions here, or send me a PM and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.

Thanks for doing this Severus. I am working on the character sheet right now, and hope to have it up fairly soon (within the next day or two). I look forward to playing.

 I've seen four sheets so far, 3 in the thread but I know I have seen many more say they are interested. Let us get this moving forward. I would love to start this early next week.

A reminder/clarification, we will be mirroring the main TOR RP timeline and will be occurring at 3645 Before the Battle of Yavin, (BBY) or 8 After the Treaty of Coruscant, (ATC).

Hi Sev, I am away from home at the moment but if yoy are keen for an extra player i will try to get a character sheet in early next week.
Cheers

I would love to have you on board Rough Knight. I am falling a little behind on the intro posts, (bad week at work) and we are awaiting approval on the Character sheets that have been posted, but we should be kicking off soon.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on January 20, 2018, 11:48:32 PM
Over the next few days, I will be posting the start of three threads. Do not post until either of the GM's have put approved on you CS.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on January 24, 2018, 10:51:20 PM
Well, getting sick delayed those plans, I'm  most of the way through those posts now, I should have them up by the start of the next week. Hopefully we will have enough approved characters by then.

I'd like to thank you all for your patience.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on January 30, 2018, 10:27:14 PM
The first thread has been posted, but as I have said before, wait for approval before posting. Over the next few days the other two threads should be posted.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: txdarkjedi on February 06, 2018, 08:03:05 AM
Any idea when the character sheets will be approved?


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: wandering-seeker on February 06, 2018, 09:44:23 AM
We don't really know. The GMs are pretty busy in RL.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on February 08, 2018, 09:57:17 PM
I will echo wandering-seeker here, the GMís have a lot on their plate in real life, and in my real life I just got served a crap sandwich from my work, so I have a lot of personal time devoted to finding another job, so those may work out.

But as soon as characters get approve I will be here moving forward because RPing is my one ray of sunshine on rainy days.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: txdarkjedi on February 21, 2018, 01:50:36 PM
I definitely understand that RL comes first, I am just looking forward to this so that it can help get my mind off of crap happening in my RL lol.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: wandering-seeker on February 21, 2018, 07:19:15 PM
We're all looking forward to this, mate. But we've got to be patient.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on March 06, 2018, 10:28:16 PM
Hey, I am still here, but there are issues with the GM's I can't address.  I would love to move forward but I am restrained.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: txdarkjedi on March 07, 2018, 07:27:00 AM
Well if you need any help let me know


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: wandering-seeker on March 07, 2018, 05:28:32 PM
Tx, I'm pretty sure if Severus can't do anything about the GMs than I'm pretty sure we can't do anything either! ;D


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: txdarkjedi on March 08, 2018, 10:22:18 AM
Just being nice and offering help man. Maybe if enough people PM them they will get it moving.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: wandering-seeker on March 08, 2018, 02:34:45 PM
Maybe, but I don't think it's a lack of motivation on their part that's the problem. This is RL bantha poodoo.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on March 08, 2018, 10:55:06 PM
Kind of got the okay to move forward form the GM today. I have given the GM the opportunity to review the character sheets over the weekend but they have run into real life issues. Over the weekend Rough Knight and I will review all CS and offer advice as needed. If the GM approves that is great, but if RK or myself give you the go ahead you can post provisionally, if the either of the GMís state you must change your character sheet it is expected that you make the changes they suggest.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on March 08, 2018, 10:59:07 PM
Also the other two threads will be posted by the end of this weekend.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC

Post by: Taegin Roan on March 14, 2018, 03:12:25 PM
Alright, just got my first post up. It is fairly short, but I figured a little bit is better than nothing. Can't wait to see how this turns out.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on May 16, 2018, 08:56:29 PM
Hello everyone,

I just wanted to check in and let you know I am here and I will move the storyline along soon, I have just been preparing for interviews lately and have not been around to post after this weekend I should be back.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Taegin Roan on May 17, 2018, 12:31:54 AM
I'm trying to work on my next entry as well, but I too have been busy of late.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on March 16, 2019, 11:30:45 PM
So since everything else has bogged down, let us pick up here. We will kick off the game we were trying to earlier until the full time GM's are ready to roll. PM me your character sheet and I will set us up with a mission and a world.

I think we should wait for the GM's to return. Thank you.

At this point is it not a better idea to relaunch the RP TOR?

I would be happy to go with that as at least something is happening then.

I am fine with this, but do we even have enough players to keep going with it?

I'm in. looks like Knight and Severus are too. and I think LR said she wanted to join at one point. do you think 5 would be enough to get off the ground?

Not sure. I would hope so, but we had like 7 or 8 people last time, and it just kind of dissipated into nothingness.

For Severus, since it is your game, would we just be continuing where we left off or starting something new?

I'd be in, absolutely. One Mando merc reporting for shenanigans!


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on May 06, 2019, 10:24:44 PM
I am reluctant to move forward without mod approval, but if we make it to the 10th without a mod stepping in and saying no I think we should move forward with a T&P game.

This way if and when the GM’s come back they can start the “official” RP, but until then we can develop our characters.

This will be a restart of the T&P for this T&P I want to go back to the basics and focus on the story and character the mechanics are secondary.
I’d think for CS this would be what I was looking for:

Name:
Age:
Home planet:
Race:
Appearance:
Faction:
Rank:
Alignment:
Combat Skills:
Primary Light saber form:
Secondary Form:
Force Abilities:
Additional Abilities:
Weapons:
Additional Resources:

Backstory: As much or as little as needed.

We will start as a combined force meeting to discuss a threat to both the Empire and the Republic, so any character you create should be able to work with the other side for at least the current moment. This RP may or may not be fast moving but we it will always quickly add in additional characters and will let character branch of more. I want this game to be player driven.

If we don’t get a no by 5/10 send me your Character sheets.

Also the last movie in the series will be coming out later this year, now is the time to build a solid base for a true full RP launch.

Post by: Golden Fedora on May 07, 2019, 06:20:41 AM
I'm not sure we should move forward yet, but you're right, we haven't heard anything from Blondie or Krace in a while. I can't see a problem with starting then, but I think we should clear it with some of the active mods first. just make sure that there isn't something going on that we don't know about.

You beckoned? Iíd like to sit this one out. I want to observe the style of the players on the forum first, and itís not really a timeline Iím interested in playing. Too many politics Iíd have to verse myself in before it would even be possible. Not a SWTOR player :P


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Rough Knight on May 11, 2019, 07:16:22 PM
I am happy to run any of my three TOR existing characters for this game Jedi, Merc or Bounty Hunter (basically anything but Sith) if people give an indication what they are going to do I will try to add to whichever group has the least characters. As I understand it there are already a few keen on Sith characters.


Cheers

A couple Sith and one Mando (me), be nice to not be the only non-force user.

Might go with my Coynite Merc character then, he is force sensitive but doesn't know it and is not a force user as such.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on May 12, 2019, 07:50:41 PM
I have not got a no from the mods so I'll start working on the basic framework of the plot to get us started.

Post by: Darth Severus on May 25, 2019, 11:08:41 PM
Just wanted to give an update as its been about two weeks since my last post. I will be posting the first in character post most likely on Monday. I've only received one CS at the moment so if you are interested please let me know, the aim is to have the game be structured so new players can slot in without waiting so if you aren't ready by Monday don't worry we will easily be able to bring you into the game.

I'm still working on my CS. I'm hoping to get it done today.

Post by: Darth Severus on May 27, 2019, 06:25:39 AM
I've put up the first IC post. I have received several CS and I did a quick review and I know a few of you had some questions and I will get to those later today, I need to get out and do some yard work before it gets too hot.

If you want to use the same characters from the previous T&P that is fine by me. We will see how many players get involved and I will post when able, at the current moment that will most likely be about once every other day.


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Taegin Roan on May 27, 2019, 07:07:55 PM
Quick question: What is the time period? Do you have a specific year that it is set in?


Title: Re: Severus's T&P OOC
Post by: Darth Severus on May 27, 2019, 08:10:41 PM
I was just going to run with the time frame of the last TOR game 8 years after the Treaty of Coruscant.
