The Cron Adrift No More

Yavin 4


All good things must come to an end.
- Geoffrey Chaucer

"It lasted for a long time, I believe. A very long time.
It was a great success, but even great successes come to a natural end."
- Issac Asimov, Robots and Empire

Mace Windu: "The Council has assembled. They are eager to hear your report."
Yoda: "Afraid, not much there is to say of my journey."
Obi Wan Kenobi: "So nothing significant happened to you out there?"
Yoda: "Yes... and no. To the end, we are coming now."
Mace Windu: "Did your journey give you insight on how to win the war?"
Yoda: "No longer certain that one ever does win a war, I am.
For in fighting the battles, the bloodshed, already lost we have.
Yet open to us a path remains, that unknown to the Sith is.
Through this path victory we may yet find.
Not victory in the Clone Wars, but victory for all time."
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Season 6, Episode 13

Out-of-Character:
Date: November 17, 2018
Time: 4:00PM P.S.T./7:00PM E.S.T. (start and end time is fluid, players are encouraged to join at any time)
Location: Yavin 4, Republic Landing Zone, Coalition Staging Area
  • The Republic Landing Zone is our primary role-play locale, and has a shuttle, pilots, black market merchants, refugee tent, operations tent, speeders, and a few aliens for window dressing.
  • The Coalition Staging Area will be our overflow area, complete with a few Jedi, Sith, and mercenaries as needed.

Invitations to Players:
  • The Event post will allow for multiple character sign ups, so please use your character name when you register so everyone can see which characters may make an appearance.

Invitation to other Gamemasters:
  • Bring your side plots, sub-plots, preludes and denouements to your other stories. This is not a heavily scripted Event, and everyone is encouraged to use this as a springboard for any pre-Ossus stories underway.
  • Please make use of any available Non-Player Characters nearby for your own scenes or teasers.

In-Character:

What Jedi Knight player-characters may know;
  • Rogue Jedi may be arranging for secret transport on Yavin 4 of Galactic refugees and displaced Jedi settlements somewhere through the Cron Drift, a massive, highly dangerous asteroid field infested with pirates, smugglers, and slavers.

What Republic player-characters may know;
  • Rogue Jedi - not fully aligned with the Republic - may be hiring smugglers on Yavin 4 for secret shipments somewhere through the Cron Drift. Sith warships have been reported in the same Sector and may also be en route.

What Independent player-characters may know;
  • The call has gone out for skilled pilots willing to risk navigating the dangerous Cron Drift. Their cargo is rumoured to be mostly passengers, and supposedly the Run isn't for Hutt Slavers. The congregation of so many scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells will be ripe with open bounties and ships in need of mercenaries to protect their crews and cargo against pirates and slavers.

What Sith Empire player-characters may know;
  • Naval ships have been ordered to jump to lightspeed and plot a course to the Auril Sector at once. They are ordered to ferret out Republic warships that may already be in the Sector, aiding a Jedi subterfuge plot against the Sith Empire.

What Sith Lord player-characters may know;
  • Jedi Knights may be en route to Yavin 4, or even already in the System, infiltrating the local black markets. Something is happening near the Cron Drift, and there is a great disturbance in the Force...

  • The rise and then slow decline of the Alliance, means that factions are meaningless now, and defections between Republic and Sith keep the lines blurred. Who is on Yavin 4 to help the Jedi? Who is there to hinder them? Who will follow them to their destination, and who will fight to keep their secrets safe?
  • Is this the end of your story? Is this where you cement your Legacy?
  • Or is this the flashpoint that sparks a new conflict? Are the lessons of the past lost to the future?

For those strong in the Force, there are no coincidences. There is only Destiny.
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Me too, I will be there but I have no idea who it will be on yet lol.

edit: I don't know how to put a character name in my signup thingy, whenever I enter a comment it just gets left blank, but i'm either bringing my Jedi master Qelian Saida or my Republic marine Lyara Idros depending on what other characters seem to be attending.

I can probably make it. I will try to get Semah to come, but no promises, he's been super busy.

I will be there, but I'm still deciding which of my characters I want to bring.

EDIT: I'm not sure if I will be able to go, but I'll try? If not, best of luck!

I'm definitely interested in attending - not sure which char, but thanks for the option to bring multiples! Perhaps it's time to retire Sindee and focus on the next generation of her legacy...

I'll try and make it if I can get my head on straight, but I can't make any promises.  Have fun, regardless.

I'm far from full mental capacity - haven't slept well in a very long time - but I'll show up, do my best.  Just may not be entirely myself.
