Topic: Holonet (OOC posts)

Even the hardest working troopers need some down time. Discuss, plot, strategize and share amongst yourselves. We arent listening... honest.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

What would you like for character generation Kevin?  What roles do you envision players taking on?

I'm interested in joining as well. Just let us know what roles you need, etc.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

Hi folks. I'm gradually working on filling in details for Dominator. I am thinking of sticking to predominantly department heads for the Star Destroyer.

These should include: Captain, XO (ship operations), Commander of Starfighters, General for Ground Assault, First Stormtrooper, Chief of Engineering, Chief of Security/ship defenses/gunnery, Political Officer, Moral Officer/discipline.

That's the initial list off the top of my head. I would encourage folks to make your own sub_officers/NPCs or disposable incidental staff to keep your officers out of harms way.

Of course with a crew of 46,000 there are a few too many NPCS for me to take on as GM or bother to keep track of, so there is a huge amount of latitude to NPCS and your control over them.

The story takes place during the rise of the empire, just prior to A New Hope and of course Rogue One. Roughly the same time period as Rebels. Jedi are almost unheard of, nearly fictional legends of a bygone age. Rebels are getting more organized but have not fully come on the field to meet the Empire in battle. We will encounter them, but there is no massive rebel fleet (maybe). Pirates, smugglers and general scum are our chief opponents. Aliens are very rare on a Star Destroyer outside of the labor pool. If you want to play one we have to work out a logical reason for them to be on the crew.

The basic 3x3 sheet for characters always works well. I'll get a sample up shortly.

Put me down for the Commander of Star Fighters.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

Absolutely! Glad you brought that position up.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

I am toying with the idea of department commanders being a sort of sub GM on plots that fall in their domain. As general GM I reserve the right to resolve conflicts that may affect the overall storyline. What do you all think?

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

I think whatever flows best.

.So... who wants to be the captain of this big bird

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

I'm not interested in the captaincy... I just want to play my character.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

Hey folks, what are preferences on how we should run stories, by location, or as individual episodic threads?

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

Location similar to how TDC was set up.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

I'm going NPC on the Captain until someone wants to step up and play him. As you know the Empire can have very rapid transitions in the upper ranks.

Re: Holonet (OOC posts)

Just for future reference, this is the hierarchy and numbers for the ground forces and the ones on board the ISS Dominator are from the 508th Legion.

- General for Ground Assault
    - Legion (9,813 units: 4 regiments (9,812 units: 8,192 troopers and 1,620 officers))
    - High Colonel (First Storm Trooper)
        - Regiment (2,453 units: 4 battalions (2,452 units: 2,048 troopers and 404 officers))
        - Lt. Colonel
            - Battalion (613 units: 4 companies (612 units: 512 troopers and 100 officers))
            - Major
                - Company (153 units: 4 platoons (152 units: 128 troopers and 24 officers))
                - Captain
                    - Platoon (38 units: 4 squads (36 units: 32 troopers and 4 officers))
                    - Lieutenant and a Sergeant Major
                        - Squad (9 units: 8 troopers, including a corporal)
                        - Sergeant
                            - Trooper

Daniel, until we get someone playing General of Ground Forces, I am giving all those duties to our Stormtrooper legion (you). So you got some fun walkers and such to play with.
