The One True Pibbles
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....
Peace! Having struggled against the relentless forces of the GALACTIC EMPIRE for over 23 years, the REBEL ALLIANCE finally defeated the corrupt system. EMPEROR PALPATINE, also known as DARTH SIDIOUS, was destroyed once and for all by his apprentice DARTH VADER and his son LUKE SKYWALKER during the BATTLE OF ENDOR. With the SECOND DEATH STAR destroyed along with the Sith Lord, but the GALACTIC EMPIRE was not defeated yet. They instead fled to the furthest reaches of the Galaxy, preparing to strike back at the REBEL ALLIANCE for all they had done.
In the time between conflict, the REBEL ALLIANCE, led by newly appointed CHANCELLOR LEIA ORGANA, made their best efforts to undo the damage the GALACTIC EMPIRE did to the Galaxy. The GALACTIC SENATE was re-established and democracy took over once more, but that was not the only significant change. Having fulfilled the prophecy to bring balance to the Force, LUKE SKYWALKER disappeared from the face of the universe, taking refuge on DAGOBAH after he realized the Galaxy was better off without either a JEDI or SITH influence within the government. So, he and the RED SQUADRON of the REBEL ALLIANCE sought out the ruined Jedi Temples spread across the Galaxy, gathering artifacts and holocrons to prevent anyone from discovering them. The existence of the FORCE USERS would disappear alongside the destruction of the SECOND DEATH STAR. Once his mission was complete, LUKE SKYWALKER returned to DAGOBAH, where he set up a secret JEDI ACADEMY. He would continue the teachings, but the JEDI would no longer meddle in the affairs of the Galaxy. It was time for the people to live on their own.
But as the NEW REPUBLIC began to gain its footing, the GALACTIC EMPIRE returned, having discovered and reactive do the ancient SEPARATIST BATTLE DROIDS to serve alongside them. They were back, ready to reclaim the Galaxy from the REBEL ALLIANCE that had bested them so long ago. Taking to the battlefield with extreme caution, the NEW REPUBLIC entered the SECOND GALACTIC CIVIL WAR with no help from the NEW JEDI ORDER. Years passed and after another long struggle between the two groups, the GALACTIC EMPIRE and the NEW REPUBLIC signed a peace treaty and decided that a partnership would be beneficial to both the galaxy and the groups. The GALACTIC EMPIRE was given its own space within the galaxy and the surrounding systems were adapted to a more peaceful Imperial control, this time led by the GRAND MOFFS. Despite the treaty, the GALACTIC EMPIRE split off into two separate groups: those who wished to ally themselves with the NEW REPUBLIC (the Moff-Empire), and those who wished to oppose the NEW REPUBLIC and return to the way the galaxy was back in the days of the OLD REPUBLIC: when the SITH were in control (the Sith-Empire). The SITH-EMPIRE was labeled as a threat to peace, but no acts between them and the NEW REPUBLIC resulted in a full-out war. Instead, the unified MOFF-EMPIRE and the NEW REPUBLIC agreed to deal with the threat on their own means, hunting down the SITH-EMPIRE. Once again, the JEDI did not interfere, but they remained vigilant, keeping a close watch for any signs of the SITH returning.
As the years continued, the galaxy saw quite a few changes, all of which were for the best. Treaties between enemies, new trade routes, and the re-establishment of peace and order in the Galaxy; all just to name a few. It would seem that the Galaxy is in fact better off without the JEDI or SITH. The few remaining JEDI, trained by LUKE SKYWALKER, spread out through the Galaxy to pursue their own destinies, be it protecting the innocent through acts of charity or to seek out any potential SITH after it was discovered a secret academy on KORRIBAN was still functioning.
Without the conflicts of the JEDI and SITH to distract them, the citizens of the Galaxy have dedicated their efforts to maintaining the peace they worked so hard to achieve. But now, the NEW REPUBLIC struggles with the ever-growing threat of a 3rd GALACTIC CIVIL WAR caused by the war-mongering residents of MANDALORE.
The Galaxy now hangs. on a thin balance. With the NEW REPUBLIC struggling to keep the peace they once had, one simple act could launch the galaxy into what could very well be the largest conflict since the Revan Wars of the Old Republic...
1. No godmodding, metagaming, etc.
2. Proper grammar is needed, this is an Intermediate level RP, I expect a solid two paragraphs per IC post. No one liners either. You can also work with collabs if you don't want to flood the IC with only one conversation, so use that to your advantage!
3. Original characters only. No Mary Sue type characters, people have flaws, your characters do too.
4. Maximum of two characters per player. If you want more, you'll have to give me a really good request or kill off one of your existing guys.
5. Characters can (and probably will) die. If they do, you can make another, should you want to fill that void.
5 1/2. If you have one character and want to leave the RP indefinitely, we can collaborate on a creative way for your character to either leave or get killed off. This really only applies if you want to kill your character. If you don't want to, then ignore this rule.
6. Try to be nice to one another in both the IC and the OoC. Everyone's here for a good time and even though I'm not a fan of confrontation (I personally don't like telling people off), I will intervene if things get too out of hand or if I'm requested to do so. Let's not have that happen and be nice ^^
7. Keep swearing, violence/gore and sex to a PG - 13 level. Romance is cool, I love it in RP's! If you get to a mature moment, fading to black is your friend in the thread, but if you take it out of the thread please follow site rules on Libertine/Liberteen RP's.
8. Please be active. If you're going to be unable to post for a while, then please notify me. If you lose interest in the RP and want to leave it then also notify me. I will remove your character from the roster and give them a good send-off. I won't kill anyone until I have official confirmation, but if you don't respond then I'll GM your character out of the IC until I get an answer.
9. Although we're all travelling together (primarily) and the main plot is pretty much dictated by me, I'm all up for collaborating with you all to make this a group effort! That being said, I might not approve every idea because I still have to make sure things make sense continuity wise.
11. You just realized there is no "10" and went back to check :3
12. Now that you're pissed at me because of "11", post your favourite Star Wars quote in the "Other" section of your sheet so I know who read the rules.
New Republic - The main democratic organization in the galaxy. The New Republic serves as a unified government for planets and star systems that wish for democracy as opposed to the previous dictatorship posed by the Empire. The New Republic, run by Chancellor Leia Solo, controls the majority of the star systems in the galaxy and is ready to combat the "evils" of the Sith and the Sith-Empire (and Mandalore, if it must).
Moff-Empire - A more democratic version of the Empire created after the Second Galactic Civil War ended at the Battle of Felucia. The Moff-Empire is controlled by the Grand Moff's, who have since renounced the ways of Palpatine's Empire and have unified themselves with the New Republic. While they still utilize TIE Fighters and Stormtroopers, the Moff-Empire has made it clear that they are no longer affiliated with those who wish to control the galaxy through fear. Instead, they now manufacture weapons and have re-activated the Clone colonies on Kamino (after rebuilding them) to create a Grand Army of the Moff-Empire/New Republic to combat the threat of the Sith-Empire (and Mandalore, should it come to that). The Moff-Empire also has a seat in the Galactic Senate, further proving that they are democratically based.
The Hutts - Just like in the centuries prior, the Hutts have no allegiance to anyone but themselves. They are notorious gangsters who hire bounty hunters and criminals to do their bidding across the galaxy. Thanks to the efforts of the New Republic, Hutt-space has been greatly diminished and now only a handful of planets remain under the control of the Hutts. As a result, the Hutts have now begun targeting New Republic planets and trade routes in an attempt to "strike back", but their attacks have been met with swift harshness from the New Republic and its allies. The Hutts run things via controlling crime, so Bounty Hunters and criminals (and slaves) are more likely to be involved with them
Sith-Empire - The original "Empire", but repackaged and refurbished. Those in the Empire who wished to return the galaxy to how it was before the Rebellion defeated Palpatine (and to a further extent, how it was when the Sith ran the Galaxy back in the Old Republic Era) reactivated the legions of Separatist Battle Droids to create an exact replica of the "Galactic Empire", but on a smaller scale. The Stormtroopers in this group were given a makeover and rebranded as "Dark Troopers", consisting of members ranging from normal clones, civilian recruits, and battle droids of all varieties. While it bears the name of "Sith", the Sith-Empire actually has no link to the Dark Side of the Force. They only used the name to inspire the fear and power that comes with such a title.
Mandalore - The Mandalorians have always been known as the most dangerous warriors in the Galaxy. Some of the greatest wars in known in galactic history have been initiated by the species, including the famous Mandalorian Wars. Recently however, the planet's inhabitants had been mostly dormant during the Two Civil Wars, but now it seems like they are preparing for war. With no clear intention being present for their actions, the entire galaxy can only stand back and hope that they aren't in the crossfire when the Mandalorians decide to initiate an all-out war.
