Iokath RP - Space RP

Greetings all. As I've said before, Game Update 5.2: The War for Iokath, has presented us with an opportunity to reinvigorate the old Republic vs. Imperial RP dynamic. The purpose of this thread to is determine what interest, if any, exists in performing at least one space RP event centered on the current conflict on Iokath. I have little experience (okay... no experience) with tabletop RP or an RP rolling system but if there is much interest I'll be looking at using @Niarra 's RP System: Under 100 - Starship Rules as the basis for an event.

Currently, <Imperial Wild Space Command> just departed to reinforce Empress Acina's forces already on Iokath. IWSC enjoys a robust reserve of naval forces. I'd be happy to commit some of these IC forces to a space RP battle (and even IC have some destroyed).

Let me know what your thoughts are.

(( @LVT ))


RP Background

Corridor Skirmish
ConflictBattle for Iokath
Date23 ATC
PlaceIokath
Combatants
* Sith Empire* Galactic Republic
Commanders
* Moff Nicohlas Heermann*
Strength
* Imperial Wild Space Command
      * Task Force Iokath
         * Harrower-class dreadnoughts
            * Ziost Avenger
         * Gage-class transports
            * Logisticator
         * Starfighter formations
            * Annihilator Squadron
*

Imperial Wild Space Command forces have just arrived over Iokath. As the bulk of IWSC's naval forces assume a position opposite of the fleets of the Galactic Republic and Eternal Alliance, Moff Heermann directs part of the fleet to move toward the corridor leading to Iokath's surface to begin landing troops and establishing a foothold on the continent opposite of Acina's forces.


Event Mechanics

This event will be conducted using Niarra's RP System: Under 100 - Starship Rules as a basis. Event participants will fight for either Republic or Imperial forces (player choice).

Mmm.... I'm not good with numbers, but I like the idea of space battles. Perhaps I could offer myself up as part of a peanut gallery? (OR read up on the system and see if I can figure it all out :grin: )

I think it's a good idea. All my stuff is ground based right now. I believe Niarra does have rules for space combat anyway. I'm interested in ideas.
Turari (29, Major, jr. grade CEDF)     Silivia Fenir (21, Freighter Captain)
Lashila Sellara (25, Grey Sith)         Harkasone Milan (29, Philanthropist)
Reill Farr(31, Silent Mandalorian)     Mystenin Felsa (26, 'Green' Jedi)
Touko Saizar(19, Turari's underling) Temple Guard #124(35, Pro Spook)
                                                    Philla Kasan (29, Captain, 51st Recon)

pew pew pew~

Sounds like a really interesting idea! In terms of personal contribution, Custodum only has one duct-taped, limping, battered old Valour-class cruiser which no sane admiral would put in a line of battle, so I'm not sure how I or Custodum would get involved right now, unfortunately.

If nothing else, though, this makes me want Old Republic rules for Armada...

Eidan keeps saying that, and Merrant looks at him like "it's bad, but it's not THAT bad". Glad to see someone else sees the truth! :D

I absolutely support any and all forms of space battle RP, whether it's with hard rules or soft storytelling.

In your plans for Space combat, planetary defense, and other shenanigans, I'll invite anyone interested to read the four-page thread this community wrote two and a half years ago regarding another embattled planet; Eyes on Erini.

Close to a dozen authors, most of the Imperial heavy hitters (and their fleets) were involved at the time, and it was a combination of Play-by-Post culminating in an epic Chatroom Event moderating by @Cordae in a demonstration of immense stamina and pre-planning.

That thread has numerous amazing posts, and was the culmination of close to a year of role-playing and diplomatic shenanigans beforehand. It's worth a read (or a re-visit for the original authors!) for some great inspiration.

@Esk
@Joshmaul
@Darshendros
@Jedibehr
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Using @Niarra 's orginal post on space RP as a basis, I've drawn up a table of prospective starships (see original post above) that could be used for a space battle over Iokath. I'm able to commit <IWSC> forces to fill the entire Imperial side (unless any other community members want one of their ships to participate).

I'd like to get an idea of who is interested in participating in a space RP event and what starship class you'd like to play as well as if you want to enter this contest on the side of the Empire or Republic.

ATTENTION INTERESTED PLAYERS: I'm going to pursue plans for scheduling a space RP event next week. All interested parties are requested to provide the following information:

*Character name
*Faction (e.g., Sith Empire, Galactic Republic)
*Desired starship class (e.g., scout, transport, etc.)
*Starship name

This information will give me a better idea of how to balance the event and even out the opposing teams.

I'll record the list of interested people on the original post and on Monday, if enough people have exressed interest, I'll begin laying groundwork for an event to be held Saturday, April 6.
