A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... Episode 4 1/2 "Super Troopers" Success! After years of perilous combat against the Empire, the Rebel alliance has managed to successfully destroy the Death Star! During a daring rescue, four Rebel agents and their droids boarded the battle station and rescued Princess Leia Organa from her cell. Overpowering the Stormtroopers in their path, the group managed to escape unharmed, except for the older male who was killed by Darth Vader. Less then a day after the rescue, the Death Star's scanners picked up several Rebel ships headed towards the battle station. In response, Darth Vader sent out ships to apprehend the Rebel scum and thwart their efforts to exploit an unforeseen weakness in the Death Star's design. But while most of the Stormtroopers were ordered to take up a TIE Fighter of man the turret systems, nobody was authorized to leave the Death Star. But by sheer accident, a small group of Stormtroopers wind up launching themselves out of an escape pod prior to the Battle of Yavin. Believing they are going to die, the Stormtroopers try desperately to get into contact with the Death Star, only to witness the massive explosion that sent them spiralling out of control. For a few days the pod floated through space until finally it landed on (we'll decide on a planet later). Luckily for the Stormtroopers they had enough provisions aboard the Pod to keep them alive for about a week if they rationed, but had they been stranded for another day their oxygen supply would have run out. But what's next for these 'brave' Imperial soldiers? Do they return to the Empire, or try to start over in a world that believes they're now dead? Or, perhaps they try to locate the Rebels who destroyed the battle station, believing that if they bring those Rebels to justice single-handedly, the reward would be substantial enough for them to retire to the Naboo countryside? Only time will tell... Alright, so the general gist of this RP is that we will be playing a group of Stormtroopers who managed to survive the destruction of the first Death Star by accidentally jettisoning themselves out of the station in an escape-pod. Now, they are stranded on a planet somewhere close to Yavin without any way of contacting the Empire or getting off-planet. So, as with all stories involving a group of stranded survivors, there remains one big question that nobody quite knows how to answer; "what do we do now?" But these Stormtroopers aren't your typically 'bad guys'. They're just people who managed to grab a job in a struggling economic time. They could be from all areas of life with entirely different backgrounds, but all of them would be relatively 'decent' people. Think something along the lines of the cast of 'Red vs Blue'; somewhat incompetent and more or less regular people who shouldn't be a part of an elite military force. But hey; the pay's good. Anyways, this would be a bit of a lighter story focusing on the antics of our characters as they go about their business trying to live in a galaxy where they may or may not be legally dead in the eyes of the government. It would obviously be played for comedic value similar to how 'Red vs Blue' goes about their plotlines. But that doesn't mean the plot isn't going to be taken seriously; it just means we can have some fun with it and mess around a little more then we normally would for a typical Star Wars RP. We'll discuss this more as interest grows and work on the core concepts as a group, but for now I'll just see who's interested. If you want to join up, post below and give me an idea of what your character might be like (if you already have an idea). I will be playing a street-smart Stormtrooper with a bit of a snark-problem. Also, if you don't want to play a straight up 'Stormtrooper' you could take on the role of someone else in the Imperial ranks: a Commander (guys in grey shirts with the caps), a Clone Trooper (still youthful enough to serve or created recently), a Droid (Protocol, Astromech, etc. But no battle-droids for now), or perhaps even a Prisoner who escaped from the cell-block during the chaos (which could be the reason the Stormtroopers are caught in the escape pod; they were trying to recapture the prisoner only to get stuck in the pod themselves). I'll leave the cut-off number at 6 players for now, so post if you're interested in joining up!
