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 (planet still being debated). 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... ------- Rules: 1. No GMing. We don't want any Mary-Sues or Gary-Sues 2. Maximum of 2 Active Characters per person. Any more needs approval by a GM 3. Characters can and WILL die, but please ASK somebody before you attempt to kill their character rather then just say "Your guy is dead." 4. Keep it PG-13!! Romance and Lovey-Dovey stuff is fine, as well as the occasional innuendo, but take smut scenes to PM, please. Also, violence is allowed, but please don't rip out a guys entrails and hold them above his head while he slowly dies. We're not monsters (but some of us are :3) 6. Each member of the RP will eventually become a member of our little 'Super Troopers' team (especially if you're not a Stormtrooper). 6. You just realized there is no 5 and went back to check. But since I've got you here, you may as well 7. None of us will be definitive 'Jedi', but we may eventually come across artifacts such as Lightsabers or Holocrons along the way. Also, we don't know how to use the Force (but we have the option to be Force Sensitive if we decide to be). 8. Post at least two paragraphs each time (more is fantastic though). I get how writers block can be, and trust me, nobody is safe from it. 9. GM posts will be announced (these include plot movers or even the death/introduction of a new character) 10. If you've read through all of this, then in the 'Other' section of your character sheet, include one of your favourite Star Wars quotes. 11. Please make PvP combat fair. It really sucks when somebody unleashes their ultimate power and freezes the other person's foot to the floor, then proceed to just punch the crap out of their immobile opponent. In addition, GM moves will NOT be allowed inside PvP combat unless approved/announced in a GM event. 12. Enjoy the RP to the best of your ability!! ------- Character Sheet Appearance: (Real Images for the Faceclaim would be preferred, but we can roll with drawn ones if you really need it for an alien species or a droid.

If you call me anything else, I will literately shoot you." Designation Number: TK-947 "Never really understood the number thing. I kind of skipped that orientation day..." Age: 20 "That's kind of a personal question. What is this, my application to the academy?" Gender: Male "I guess we look the same with the helmets on, but come on; I don't even sound like a woman." Height: 5'4" "If you say I'm 'a little short for a Stormtrooper', I swear I will literally shoot you. Again." Weight: 120lbs "I might be skinny, but I can assure you it's all muscle. Gotta stay in shape, right?" Species: Human "Kind of obvious once the helmet's off." Rank: Private, 1st Class Stormtrooper. (Standard Rank) "I used to be a Sandtrooper, but when I got promoted to serve on the Death Star, they gave me a new title and everything. Still kept the armour though. That thing is actually pretty good at handling most environments, despite 'sand' being in the title." Bio: Maar was born and raised on a small moisture vaporizer farm on Tatooine. He had a modestly sized family and enjoyed a pretty average life. Nothing super interesting happened to him growing up... Not that he could remember, at least. Maar has a rather vague recollection of his earliest memories, but he blames the extreme physical training of the Imperial Stormtroopers for his semi-amnesia. "Seriously; who makes a door way that low? I kept hitting my head on that stupid thing!" Maar enlisted in the Empire when he turned 16 and began training the following year. He was the 3rd best in his class and managed to get through basic training before he was sent back to Tatooine to work as a Sandtrooper. There, he worked in a Patrol unit monitoring and dealing with every-day disturbances on the desert planet. One time he was even featured on an episode of 'TROOPS', where he and his squad leader TK-745 dealt with a group of rowdy smugglers stirring up trouble at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina. "I arrested a guy! It was awesome!" After two years on Tatooine, Maar was selected by his superior officers to join the ever-growing Stormtrooper units on the Death Star. There, he got a job working at Detention Block AA-23 and managed to garner himself a modest living. Of course he knew some of the stuff the Empire was doing was absolutely insane, but the pay was good and he got full benefits so Maar could really care less. Of course, that was until they decided to blow up Alderaan. That's when Maar began to really rethink his job selection. "That about brings us up to date... Are we done yet?" While he's normally a calm and reasonable guy, he also has a bit of a temper and can blow up on people when he is irritated or annoyed beyond belief. Maar also has a natural snarky attitude when dealing with stressful situations, which typically gets him into trouble. However, he's still a (mostly) humble guy and genuinely cares for his friends and squad-mates. He just has a very particular way of showing it. Weapons: • E-11 Blaster Rifle "The basic weapon of the Empire. It's pretty good, has some decent power and the firing rate isn't too bad... Sucks that half the troops still don't know how to fire it properly." • T-21 heavy blaster "My blaster-shotgun. It's amazing. They gave this to me on Tatooine back when I was a Sandtrooper. I gotta tell you; this thing gets amazing coverage at short range. Just gotta work on the knock-back. Stupid skinny body." Other: While Matthew has never actually supported the Rebel alliance's crusade, he's also not a fan of the Empire and on one occasion while in a meeting with Darth Vader (in which he watched the Sith Lord strangle one of his superiors), Matthew realized just how screwed up his job actually was. While he does suffer from acute memory loss, Maar has noticed he has a capacity for performing minor, but strange, feats. He has no idea that he's actually Force Sensitive. While he's not a follower of the Jedi or Sith religion, Maar doesn't deny the fact that the Force is very real. He just doesn't get caught up in the politics of 'Good vs Evil' when it comes to the abstract idea of ultimate power through what is essentially 'space wizardry'. Maar is also quite the pilot and takes pride in his skill with technology (fixing up droids, hacking computer terminals, etcetera). He can fly nearly anything and thanks to his training at the Imperial Academy, Maar can adapt to a variety of different situations (survival situations, combat situations) rather quickly. "You've never heard of the Millenium Falcon? It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs!"
