I just did one on Tatooine for my character because it was a natural place for him to be. It does work out for to story, but that is not the main reason I did it. I don't see any reason why we should have to use it as the Tatooine thread.

The only advantage that I can see with merging the characters into Taegins existing Tatooine thread (as they arrive on Tatooine) is that they can potentially then interact with one another while waiting for the main thread to start.

That would also assume they arrived at the same point, some may go direct to Jabbas palace others might land at other towns on Tatooine. I have found this handy map with of the local area for reference.



Cheers

Cool  map.

So once we jead off on our adventure, I was wondering if we'd be taking a single ship or are we all  making our own way. Reason I ask is that a single ship might make for a good home base for us. What do you guys think?

I think it'd be an interesting option, although I don't think many people's characters would leave their ships at Jabba's palace or Mos Eisley very willingly lol

I think the plan is to have a single ship. I think it will end up being that we are essentially the crew of a ship doing something, interacting, and learning to live with each other even when we hate each other. Not entirely sure what will happen, or how, but from the conversations I've had with ThreadJack, that seems to be something of the plan.

Nice. I've been looking at SW ships recently and thinking about finding a ship with a deck plan that would suit our needs. I was inspired to do so by Rough Knight posting the Tatooine map. I can post my finding here if you like  Grin

Yes, I think a single ship is definitely the best option, also as Kaboose0008 says a deck plan is extremely useful.

A while ago we did the Venomstrike II RPG as a training session for people who wanted to join the Qanotha RPG, we were all based on a single ship and it was really good http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=22757.0 the deck plan was placed with the character sheets for easy reference.

Yes, I had planned us to take a single ship. I thought it would add a neat dimension to the story, this way we have interactions than simply during the actual mission. I figured it'd be a Firefly type dynamic, rugged outlaw crew, travelling space, and just trying to survive and make ends meat, then eventually save the day.

I'll put up Jabba's palace soon, but for now y'all can go ahead and arrive on Tatooine.(I know I haven't made my first IC post, but I'm working on it)

So I have one more ship to consider. Since Taegin's character has an XS Freighter I figured I should include a layout of one.



I'm doubtful we'd want to use Golden's Character's Fang fighter as according to Wookieepedia is a single seater and my character's HWK-290 would be pretty cramped trying to fit everybody.

I very much like the XS, it's small (so the players are kept in close proximity to one another), also unobtrusive so can sneak into ports with a masked transponder. Presumably the guns and engines are upgraded so it can run from bigger ships and take on those its own size or smaller/less well armed. If the top gun was a dorsal turret and there was a corresponding ventral turret underneath (similar to the turrets in the Millennium Falcon) and the side guns were ion cannons it would be a very handy set up and fun for the players to crew. Chuck in a couple of proton torpedo or concussion missile tubes and a ground buzzer and it starts to get quite formidable for its size. Possibly the medical bay could double up as additional crew quarters.
There doesn't seem to be a refresher (toilet and sonic shower) on the plan, I would suggest perhaps one in the captains quarters and perhaps another between the crew quarters and the medical bay making those compartments slightly smaller.

I guess ultimately the ship type chosen will be dependant on the mission type but at this stage the XS gets my vote.

I am planning to do another post before arriving at Jabba's palace for my own character, I just haven't gotten a chance to write it yet. But I will.

As for Jakyr's freighter, there are quite a few "special modifications" to it. If we decide to go that route (not sure what ThreadJack has planned), I'll try and come up with a list of the modifications so we can all be on the same page.

Oops, I made a mistake in my last post. I said a sail barge, but that is far to big for what I had in mind. I was thinking of the little skiffs that accompanied the sail barge in ROTJ, but for some reason I called them the wrong thing. If someone could fix that in both my own and Kaboose's that'd be great. If not, just know for future posts, it is a just a smaller transport.
