The Tides of Fate Q&A

This will be the location of the offical Star Wars: the Tides of Fate Q&A thread.

I have put up a very minimalist opening post for the game; think of it as the yellow lettering that starts every movie. The opening scene is coming soon!

It's ok, I'm keeping a tally. Grey is getting 10 smites as soon as it's working.

For you, there is room. I know you will come up with a good concept.

Need to be non jedi. Look at the recruitment thread to see what we have.

post away!

Feel free to post now. You are all introed, save Raven's character, who will come onstage shortly.

Mercury and Ziv are onboard the Kul Kura as crew. Neither of them are aware that Dulo has a business beyond transporting passengers.

Dime and Caise are both lawful passengers on the vessel itself - Dime has business on Tanaab (Admiral, feel free to work this into your character bckground - it would be along his normal line of work - or I can do it). Caise is here to meet with a colleague of his master on the planet; though Tanaab has very little in the way of useful resources, the world does have mines that yield the occasional agadan crystal, useful in lightsaber construction.

Tanaab System

I found this on wookieepedia
Taanab was a planet of green meadows in the Taanab system. It was primarily used for agriculture and farming. Its populace was known for always maintaining an air of formality.

It was once a world covered in thick, inhospitable jungle, similar to Felucia. The CIS built a droid factory there, during the Clone Wars. After the Clone Wars, it was terraformed to an agricultural world to supply nearby worlds with food. The planet was especially known for its roba steak. Captain Mullinore was from the world.

The Battle of Taanab took place over its skies five months after the Battle of Yavin. In the battle, Lando Calrissian defeated attacking pirate raiders from Norulac.

Years later, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr went to Taanab to discover more about the operations going on there by the Disciples of Ragnos. Jaden battled a mutant rancor which the Disciples intended to release in a populated place so they could pillage the area during the chaos.

"my" Tanaab

At present game date, Tanaab is crently an agricultural world. There are some stretches of jungle - perhaps it will overgrow to cover the world, requiring terrforming in the future?

Please do note, however, that "my" Star Wars worlds are not quite as homogenous as Lucas seems to portray. Look at earth - we have desert, jungle, grassland, mountains, oceans, swamps, and on and on.

Most Lucas worlds have ONE trait, and that's it.

Horse pucky!

So while there are worlds that fit this mold (Kashyyk, Onderon, some of the city-worlds), others may be KNOWN for a given trait, but they are still WORLDS - so expect to see some diversity.

Ziv Cracken was born under the twin moons of Contruum, with a hydrospanner in his hand. His father was a shipwright on one of the orbital shipyards, making decent credits but absent from the home for the most part.

Throughout his teenage years, Ziv apprenticed under a Mon Calamari mechanic named Akou. Akou was highly skilled and ran a brisk business, catering mostly to clients with “rush jobs” and “special orders”. Naïve, Ziv remained clueless to his boss’ shadier dealings, which suited the squid just fine. Akou liked the boy’s creativity when it came to dealing with technical problems.

Around Ziv’s nineteenth birthday, Akou approached the young lad with an opportunity to travel the stars with one of their long time clients, Thom Dulo, Captain of the Kul Kura, a passenger transport. Ziv was familiar with the ship, with its captain, and even more so with the engine room chief, Lana. The two of them had often argued the fine points of the latest technologies. To be honest, Ziv had a minor crush on the woman.

Ziv has been working in the engine room of the Kul Kura for just over one standard year. His has a good relationship with Lana, though the two continue to argue. He is unaware of the ship’s shadier business transactions.

Questions about this first post

1) Would Lana and Ziv know what was going on outside around the ship (i.e. sensors in the engine room showing the pirate ship giving chase and the appearance of Tanaab's Defeense Force)?

2) Would Lana and Ziv hear the conversations between the pirates and the captain or Tanaab's force and the captain?

3) How old is Lana? What's her CHA scores?

4) Is it okay that I used your NPC (Lana) in such a way?

Lana and Ziv might have a general idea of the tactical situation, but no real specifics when it starts to get hairy (who would tell them?). Likewise, I don't think they would hear the conversations.

Lana is older than Ziv, probably 25 or so. Reasonably attractive.

Sure, use the NPC. I didn't have any designs for her to be very detailed, so this is fine.
