Well I went for OR.

Not really intrested in doing Sith Era. KotOR spoiled that era. lol

GCW is overdone so much.

Nobody else is interested in NR era.

Already done NJO RP, and post-NJO.

So that leaves just OR or CW.

Well, it looks like OR has already been decided on. :p

So, really....all that needs to be decided is begining of OR (before prequels), during OR (prequels), or end of OR (Clone Wars).

I said NR just because that's what I'm most familiar with, but I'm sure I can fudge my way through an OR RPG

Before prequels.

I agree.

1). Anakin is annoying. :p

2). It's more easier to have drama and relationships and such, without a war going on.

3). Doesn't have to be very technical.

4). Easier for non readers of the EU to join, not much has been done in that era....as far as I remember.

Yup, there is a massive gap in EU between about 45 BBY and 1000 BBY. filled only with bits and peices mentioned as things that happened in the past in later books.

See....so......I think Pre-prequel OR works. ;)

All in favor, say "aye."

AYE! :p

Think we should do it somewhat closer to BY...but you know...I like structure...

Go pre 1K BY if you guys feel like starting from near scratch lol

by going between 5k to 1k BY, we would limit our creativity by having Sith around the place... Possibly.

I'm looking at 500-400 BY...the Chu'unthor could be a good setting for some plotlines. We could also do stuff with the Wookiee/Trandoshan conflicts.

Mara, that means your rpg would be at 194 or so.

*shrugs*

And actually, I think it would be better to go closer to 100, than 1000.

But no matter what era we choose, we should make our own adventure, so like.....not using Chu'unthor or Zonoma or whatever. There is no reason to use something already existing, then we're constricted on what we can do.

We just need some generic type plotline......something for everyone to get into (and not necessarily as one big group).

The only reason the events on the timeline would be needed is if the characters need to go to Coruscant or something like that...and the politics and leaders at the time would be needed.

I didn't say that we should live on the Chu'unthor or anything...just that it would be cool to stop by once and a while. It's a travelling training ship...we could run into it from time to time.

Whatever, lol.
