Greeting's everyone. Post your question, comments and concerns here.

"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. 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

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Oops... I just posted a question on Star Wars time on the other page.  My bad.

Here's what I asked...

I take it we are mercs?  Would you please set up a topic for our characters to post bios?  Then we can try and figure out how we know each other.

I am not familiar with the SW timeline, is your date of 2BBY.  Can you elaborate a little so that I have an understanding?  Thank you ma'am!

Mike

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

To answer your questions in order. Yes, you're mercs.

the thread you originally posted in is, for that exact purpose.

2 BBY means, two years before battle of Yavin, the battle of Yavin was when Luke blew up the Death Star, so it is the time of Imperial Superiority. Galaxy is relatively at peace

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

I'll pitch in what I can here: BBY in Star Wars means "Before the Battle of Yavin IV", i.e. the destruction of the first Death Star. It's used as a turning point in the Star Wars universe similar to the birth of Christ in Western Civilization, as the Rebel victory marked the beginning of the end for the Empire. In case you're interested, here is what's going on in the year in question: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/2_BBY/Legends

2 BBY means two years before that. The Empire is secretly finishing up the Death Star, the Rebels are growing in threat beyond a mere terrorist organization, etc.

We ARE mercenaries, bounty hunters, you name it. From what Ironette's told me rich people pay us lots of credits to show up and inflict property damage/murder/grievous bodily harm/mean words upon whoever or whatever has made them upset.

I have a question of my own, having seen Mr. Palmer's character post: Are we supposed to be using the Star Wars tabletop handbook to create these characters, or are we freestyling it? I was going to just use the format from Outbreak/Supernatural.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Since, I've not used that Star Wars format. I'm going to let you guys Freestyle it.

Is my character okay as is?  If not, please advise and I'll make the necessary changes.

Backstory could use an update to fit the lore, looks good besides that

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

I changed his DOB to reflect his age in 2BBY.  Need to add some flesh to the bones of the story, so that our characters can meet up and have at least one run under our belts.

Thoughts?

Mikey boi, you ok with our characters' link? I put that the twins had hired you before for transport purposes a few times.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Yes sir, that works for me.  I also added a line for SilverRush's character, working with her on a minor contract with the Blackbirds.

Due to her command experience, I suggest Cyrenia be our captain, unless there is an NPC to fill that role.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Cyrenia would, accept said command. Although it would be the first ship she's in charge of.

I apologize for the lack of hyperlinks on the gear, but most of them are from the Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars RPG and their aren't a lot of images for them available on the net.

Well except for Lupo, that's a custom job.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Both of Rekara's slug throwers are in the Star Wars  Wookipedia, or some such site name.  I don't know how to post a picture or a hyperlink, so I am at a loss on that topic... :-(

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Yo I just put hyperlinks in for the giggles, they're not actually that necessary.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

It's good info for those wishing to see the details.  The closest comparisons of Rekara's slug thrower weapons we know today would be a tricked-out .50 caliber Barrett sniper rifle and a .50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol.

Would you guys find an armory thread, helpful or necessary then?

Thanks Ant Man!  I learned something new today, and it ain't easy to teach an old dog new tricks.

How about inserting a character photo into the bio page?  How do you do that sir?  :-)

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

I must have done something wrong, as it didn't post.  I left the picture Id up on Rehara's bio page so that you can see what I tried to do.  This is the pic I want to use for him.  Got it off Google.

Re: The Dejarik Table: OOC Thread

Ah, I see the problem Mike. That's the image on your computer, a local file. You need a url for it on the web. Basically, find the picture online, and instead of saving it to your computer, right click the picture and select "Open Image In New Tab". Then copy the url at the top of that new tab and put THAT in between the img /img tags. It should give you something that starts with http and ends with something like ".jpg" or ".png".

Silver, I tried looking up the Blackbirds from Star Wars, got an awful lot of completely unrelated stuff. Where did you get them from?

I copied the address, but it was a no-go.  Guess I'll have to find another picture to use.

Thanks!
