Topic: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

Hey everyone. Was spitballing some Sim ideas on Discord earlier and now that I've got fuller ideas I'd try to gauge interest.

Both of the ideas are for Star Wars sims, and here they are.

First is for an Alliance themed sim where the players take on rolls of a ragtag crew of rebels in the vein of rogue squadron and rogue one. Doing sabotage and operating under the radar.

Or uh, something more like Fantasy Flight Games' Edge of the Empire where the players play bounty hunters, mercenaries, smugglers and other sort of galactic rim types operating off of a YZ-775 Medium Transport doing all sorts of missions that are within or most likely beyond the law.

But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" -Harry Callahan

I'd probably lean more towards the bounty hunter one...

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I’d rather be a mercenary than Rebel scum

Going to personally take a pass on this, but I wish this every success.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I think a rebel terrorist trash game would cross over well with Dominator. The dark side of rebels vs the virtuous empire.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I appreciate his imperial this board is. Rebel terrorist trash indeed.

It could be interesting to see some crossover opportunity

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

So, are we doing rebels or Mercenaries, Smugglers, Bounty hunters etc.?

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

The interest lies more heavily in mercenaries. So that’s the most likely option

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I finally found a copy of my old Star Wars character that I used in Ash Plom's game, so I can commit this to your game.  He is Mon Calamari, an accomplished scout and ace pilot.  He was created using the Star Wars rule book.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

With three players I’ll have to start working on this for real. I’ll give you guys some more information sometime next week when my internet is hopefully back up

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I have my character ready to go when you are.  I wrote a detailed history for him for Ash Plom's Triple Zero Star Wars sim, so it's already done.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

Well I have like a thread and a mission, but the boards been rather... Quiet lately so there’s not much I can do to move ahead. Also I don’t know if it’s just your or the other two are still interested

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

The site has been extremely quiet for days/weeks now.  I sent Kevin a message to see if he was all right, but have not had a reply yet.  I hope all is well.  I suggest you send Misty a request to get a sim page posted so that we can get something started.  I am still hot to trot and hope the others are too.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

I'd be down to be Rebel scum. Or bounty hunters TBH, but mostly rebels.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

Well... We could do either. Sorry Phoenix has stopped updating me of posts, again...

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

Not sure when we will see a return to normalcy.  By any chance have you asked Misty to set up a site for your sim?  She may be able to get you up and going, since the sim should then monitor itself after she puts it in place.  Just a thought...

Where has Misty gone anyway?

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

She took refuge from an unforgiving world in deepest darkest Peru.

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

Rebecca, have you had any luck contacting Misty for a sim set-up?

Re: Couple of Star Wars Sim Ideas

If Misty's incommunicado for whatever reason, feel free to fire me an email to get things set up. I can't promise anything this weekend - open beta launch went/is going exceedingly well, so finding all manner of things that need fixed to keep running - but I should definitely have some time to breathe at some point over the next few days.
