Here is the OC thread for the Flame Rekindled.

Once I receive your character sheets, I will start the campaign. If possible, I will hopefully get the game going Wednesday night or Thursday (If not sooner).

So we have the following:

Howling Wookie: Tech Specialist
Skreem: ?
darth_wylde: Jedi ______

I hope you all enjoy.

Should be fun. Look forward to the game and your GMing. As far as backgrounds, what can we assume has happend from the end of Jedi until now? Need this info so our BG will follow the story line. Also how are you handling starting ability scores? Cost System (as in RCR), random, ect.

Ynnek Rellim
24 February 2004, 03:18 PM
I do apologize, I did forget the attribute points...
Use the 30 point buy system. Which if you need to know works as follows...

8=0 9=1 10=2
11=3 12=4 13=5
14=6 15=8 16=10
17=13 18=16

All events from RotJ are the same and should be taken as fact if the majority of the galaxy new about it. I'm not sure if many people would know things such as the Darksaber project.

Edit: Since I am allowing you to become 3rd level, you are allowed to have a "max roll" for your additional HP plus the necessarily constitution modifier. For ex. a hit die of d8 would roll an 8 when they leveled up, regardless (unless you refuse to roll full then I really don't care what number you pick).

YR, what about starting weapons and equipment. I have character made but need to add weapons and equipment for it to be finished.

25 February 2004, 01:25 AM
YR, I just emailed you my character and background. It's a Counsular. Hope all is OK with you!:)

Howling Wookiee
25 February 2004, 01:37 PM
YR has my PC and BG. I just wanted to post some contact info here so we can communicate outside the Net. Just incase the site goes down over a lengthy period of time.

Primary Email - dmp4488@aol.com
AIM - dmp4488
YahooIM - howlingwookiee

Feel free to contact me if you just want to chat or have a specific question. I look forward to RPing with you all.

The Wook.

The following weapons are at your disposal:
Blaster Pistol
Blaster Rifle
Ion gun Pistol
Sporting Blaster
Vibroblades and daggers
Plus any rediculously simple weapons (whether they be slings... or the dreaded SPOON! (1d0))

The adventure is one where the events that occur may have galactic ramifications and player involvement may turn the tides of certain events. This campaign is for any New Republic sympathist (I'm not a big fan of playing Dark Jedis). The conflicts will not be regional, or between gangs and thugs, but entire political entities and there may be a few.... surprises (I like to invent stuff :D )

Also, btw, my aol s/n is:


Creative isn't it?

The Tech Specialists will have a datapad and one tool kit.

The Jedi will have a lightsaber and a basic Jedi cloak.

26 February 2004, 04:11 AM
I'm thinking about making a pilot, will i be able to have a ship (if so, should i do up its stats, for your approval) I'm thinking either a Ghtroc 720, YT-2400, or YV-666. All these (except the YT-2400) i would need to get stats from the net and modify them. Let me know, any which way. :)


26 February 2004, 05:23 AM
oops, I just used random stats and the listed starting credits from the RCRB. :rolleyes:

27 February 2004, 05:30 AM
OK, I have stats for one Karyn Skyye, Zeltron Female singer, very atypical of my usual characters, she is Noble 3. Unfortunately, I f-ed up her ability scores, so I'll hafta go back through and revise them some more. In any event, look for her stats via PM by 3 today (EST). Backstory later, though it'll be worth the wait, I've got an interesting idea planned for her.:) Also, does anyone have a name, picture, or (this is hoping for too much) stats of a Star Wars version of a guitar? I've drawn some ideas, but I lack a scanner. I would love it if someone had somethign liek this out there, but if not, ill just call her instrument a guitar. Picture a normal stratocatster electric guitar for story purposes. I'm thinking it'll run on 2 energy cells rather than being plugged in, and it will have an internal amp, so it wont need that either. How does that sound to everyone? Ynnek? :?

Au revoir,


27 February 2004, 10:44 AM
Wow - sorry all - I TOTALLY missed this thread's creation! Talk about dropping the ball! I will have a character - probably replacing your change coldskier- a pilot - in email to you sometime tonight...

27 February 2004, 12:56 PM
my techie has some piloting skill, so skreem, if you want to do another character, i can handle piloting. That is if i hear back on it.

Ynnek Rellim
27 February 2004, 07:29 PM
I think you have some great ideas coldskier.

I have most of your character sheets so I hope to do some IC posting soon (today or tomorrow). Some of you need to do some final touches on your character sheets.

Ynnek Rellim
28 February 2004, 07:54 PM
So the breakdown is as follows?

Coldskier: Noble
Howling Wookie: Tech Specialist
Darth Wyld: Jedi Consular
Ringlord: Tech Specialist
Skreem: Tech Specialist?

I am not sure if there is a need for such a redundancy. I can't ask for Howling Wookie, or Ringlord to change since they have already submitted their character sheets.

Skreem, I would REALLY appreciate it if you would be willing to change your T. specialist to something else and I apologize if this REALLY screws everything up. Unless someone else wishes to change their character.

Howling Wookiee
28 February 2004, 08:09 PM
Ah, I guess I could change I've got some ideas for a scoundrel I've been tossing around. Really only need 1 TS in a group, I'll let RL have his shot at it. I'll have a new PC to you in the morning YR. No problems here.


Ynnek Rellim
28 February 2004, 08:15 PM
I talked to Howling Wookie and it is decided he will be a scoundrel instead of a Tech Specialist so Skreem, if you so desire, you may keep your Tech Specialist or switch, it doesn't REALLY matter.

I have started the character intros and once I get HW's new sheet, and Skreems sheet, i can finish the intros and post it and get this game underway.

29 February 2004, 05:32 AM
Star Wars 10: Attack of the Techs

1 March 2004, 04:07 AM

Terribly sorry I've been out for the weekend. I did up my stats on my home computer, which has TPTCBN on it and dumped them into my USB JumpDrive, which is on my keys, which I left at my girlfriends house. If you'd like, Ynnek, I could PM you the rough versoin of the character, which would probably be ok for initial story purposes, and it will come with her full background. Then I can send you her revised stats along with her weapon (a sporting blaster) 's background. Is that ok?



1 March 2004, 09:19 AM
Attack of the bizarre weekends - sorry everyone for not getting the sheet in yet.
First - I wasn't planning a Tech Spec pilot... but I need to know if we still need a pilot...? I've got a few ideas I can modify this up with - which I will toss-around today... but I'm not sure if we have anyone with piloting skill still or not.

Ynnek Rellim
2 March 2004, 07:24 AM
Pilots are not that necessary. I might have a few piloting checks but I cannot do space battles very well online without some kinda grid.

2 March 2004, 12:10 PM
Ok - I've talked with coldskier a bit... and I'll be working my character in with his somehow (not 100% sure how just yet.. more to come) The character is a scoundrel/scout.

Howling Wookiee
2 March 2004, 01:43 PM
Is RingLord still planning on being a TS? We've went from maybe 3 TS to maybe 0. That's funny.........I'm sticking with scoundrel, hopefully RL will stick with the TS ( I think we need atleast one in the group). Look forward to RPing with you guys and hope the IC thread starts up soon. See you all in the boards.

The Wook.

2 March 2004, 02:33 PM
yeah im still playing the ts, i just have to get rid of my pilot stuff and change it.

Howling Wookiee
3 March 2004, 09:21 AM
That's good, RL. Like I said we need atleast one TS in the group. YR what does the status of the IC thread start up look like. I'm just eager to start. :)

The Wook

3 March 2004, 11:31 AM
OK, finally got my keys and USB memory back from my girlfriend. Tried to PM them to Ynnek, but my computer or the site or something is amiss. I hope tommorow morning I can get them to you from school. Other than that, nothing new to report!:D

Cant wait to get started! (Reminds self to add another line to siggy!:D)


Ynnek Rellim
3 March 2004, 05:14 PM
I have all the character intros done, however, for my adventure to flow somewhat fluently, I need them all to have a "convenient" (or not so convenient meeting). Until Skreem submits his charactersheet, I can't write his character intro and thus explain his part of the story. I rest assure (unless I am at school, vet (only for Thursday March 3, 3-5 pm), or at work (Friday night, saturday night, and sunday night)) I will be posting the intro.

To give you guys a heads up, you will be placed on Chandrilla during a commercial summit with prominent figure heads. Which would explain Jedi intervention, noble presence, and tech specialists (for the spiffy graphics and displays) as well as the ever present scoundrel.

My style of playing is VERY liberal. Most GM's tend to have a set of possible paths as seen in the "Invasion of Theed" booklet/set. I however allow characters to go ANYWHERE and there are basically no limits to alternate scenerios or endings. Some GM's will have 3 paths out of a locked room, I will have as many paths out of that room as you can think of, some more successful than others of course.

4 March 2004, 10:28 AM
Just remember for my intro, im a singer, the noble is just the closest class i can get.

btw, check out the sig line!:D B)

Ynnek Rellim
4 March 2004, 05:15 PM
I feel very honored to have a slot in your signature...

Thats a lot of games btw......

Skreem, how long do you believe you will be? I'm not sure how the players feel and I don't want to rush you, but I need a character sheet as soon as possible.

5 March 2004, 08:13 AM
OK, I sent my BG to Skreem earlier today to do what he will with his character. I hope he comes up with something interesting (I'm sure he will).

Can't wait to further RP with you guys. For some, this will be my first time RPing with you in the same game. For others, its another pleasant experience im looking forward to. Other than HW, tho, I think I've dealt with all of you in some aspect over in the Quadrant threads. That is really great and is part of why i wanted it to work out: to meet other pbpers. As far as HW, I can assure you all that he is a very talented RPer, I have had a great time gaming with him in the IoT threads that Shannon runs. This is going to be awesome!:D

5 March 2004, 10:17 AM
Ynnek - cold and I figured out our connection - I will get a PM to you today about it - I also realized I have to make a minor adjustment to my character sheet - forgot something somewhat important... :(

Ynnek Rellim
10 March 2004, 04:22 PM
I have everyone's charactersheet and I apologize for "disappearing" for the last 5 days.... I worked for the past 4 days and had school work to complete. Too much drama in the past 96 hours..... But I'm back and thats all that matters...

I will get the entire intro done tonight and the intro shall be posted ASAP.

11 March 2004, 10:24 AM
The nice thing - noone could tell you had vanished - because the boards had vanished for the weekend...

Howling Wookiee
11 March 2004, 10:31 AM
That is true Skreem and we all have RL to contend with, when rping our favorite online games. NP here, just looking forward to start. See You all in the boards..............(maybe)......:)

17 March 2004, 09:06 AM

Are we all still gonna do this? It's been over a week...

Howling Wookiee
17 March 2004, 12:34 PM
I second ColdSkier, this gonna happen or what? Just give us an update or new news.

The Wook

17 March 2004, 02:35 PM
<--- Ready and willing!

Ynnek Rellim
17 March 2004, 04:11 PM
I REALLY apologize for the lack of well... anything. I have been bedridden, working, schooling, or sending of financial aid crap and I haven't quite finished though now I have no homework, work, school, or anything... for a bit so I hope to get this off my desktop and onto the forum.

Lets just say when I was sick, I had hallucinations on how to capture "C's and D's". I felt like it was Sesame Street on drugs....

18 March 2004, 03:22 AM

Well, thanks for posting, but really, all that was necessary was a leedle post telling us you were sick, but thanks. I think we all completely understnad your situation, esp. me, as im also nearing the end of my senior year. Fortunately, my FAFSAs are all over and done with, I just hafta pick a school. I feel your pain though.

BTW, Pitt or WVU?;) :P

18 March 2004, 03:56 AM
FAFSA?!? WVU??!?

Wovon redet Ihr?:?

18 March 2004, 04:29 AM
FAFSA = US Financial Aid Form, not sure what it stands for.

WVU = West Virginia University

18 March 2004, 04:32 AM
Now I understand.
FAFSA...that would be BAFÖG in Germany I think...

Howling Wookiee
18 March 2004, 10:27 AM

23 March 2004, 05:13 PM
GM and any NPC ;)

I did a small update and I'm going to allow sometime for you to converse or collect info in one case until the next "storyline" action.

I've got great news...
I was accepted to one of my colleges, Hamline University, St. Paul, MN, and I received a $30,000 over 4 years scholarship!!!! To say the least, I am extremely happy. I was also put on the wait list to Carleton College in Northfield, MN which is one of the Top 5 liberal arts colleges in the nation and I expected a flat out rejection letter so I'm ecstatic.

23 March 2004, 11:17 PM

I can imagine how you feel, I had similar experiences when I looked for a college (means: the german equivalent of a college) some years ago...

Howling Wookiee
24 March 2004, 08:14 AM
Congrats. That sounds very good especially if you can get college paid for. I've been graduated for 8 yrs now and still paying back student loans.........but almost done. :) So again congrats and I hope the best for your future.

24 March 2004, 01:43 PM
Major congratulations Ynnek! Huzah!

I'm not looking forward to paying back my student loans... and I'm not even done yet!!! :(

Howling Wookiee
8 April 2004, 09:45 AM
Is this game still active? I understand if RL has gotten in the way but we need some info on the status of the game. I've not heard from anyone in a couple of weeks and thought I would ask.............

10 April 2004, 06:40 PM
I'm still there but I'm waiting for others to post...

13 April 2004, 05:47 AM
I'm still here as well. I'm kinda waiting on Skreem to post. He let us know in Quadrant that his life has been hectic lately but he should be back on track here in a few days.

13 April 2004, 03:42 PM
Sorry about my not posting yet - as cold said... been a wee bit hectic for me lately - thankfully unlike the Quadrant thread... this one requires little resources so I was able to just put the post up :)

2 May 2004, 11:49 PM
Hello?!? Is anybody out there? :?

4 May 2004, 08:37 AM
Yeah, wth is goin on? Let's get moving! :D

12 May 2004, 04:20 PM
flashback ....

<music> I think we're alone now...... </music>

12 May 2004, 11:16 PM
That would be very sad indeed!

17 May 2004, 05:06 AM
Hey guys, with school ending and work starting, my post rate is gonna drop sharply over the next few weeks. Don't wait up for me, thanks for being patient.:) I'll be back, promise. ;) **ignores groans of despair**

Ynnek Rellim
17 May 2004, 07:17 PM
Yea it is still active but I had lots of Senoir stuff to do like AP exams, final essays and projects, as well as other college prepatory stuff and a I got a minor promotion at work so I got stuck with a few more hours at work. Once this week is over, I will have plenty of time to post. Instead of my normal 70 hours of school/work, I will only have 30 hours of work. I look forward to... next week! Then I will officially graduate June 1st.

17 May 2004, 11:03 PM
Are congratulations already okay? :)

By the way, I will be away from thursday to sunday (trip to austria, 1000+ km per car... groan! Will try to post tomorrow.

18 May 2004, 03:03 AM
Yeah, congrats, YR! As for myself, I'll be graduating the 28th of May:D But yeah, I totally understand about the hectic time of year. Though I havent had any AP exams, Ive had a lot of final projects to do, and this past weekend, I had my senior prom. In any event, I totally sympathize!



Howling Wookiee
18 May 2004, 04:39 AM
Congrats on the graduation YR. Hope your future is bright. And I understand about the RL time restraints. We are patient.

18 May 2004, 06:17 AM
im still here, been really busy lately.

on a related not i will be gone for most of the summer, so right before i leave i will be turning all my characters over to the respective gms, for their use untill i get back. Just thought id warn the people here.

18 May 2004, 09:23 AM
Congrats to BOTH of you Ynnek and coldskier! Just think - out from one prison system, and into another :D Just kidding... really... I enjoy spending all my waking hours doing work for other people... really, truly... it's great...


Howling Wookiee
18 May 2004, 12:01 PM
Sorry did not mean to leave you out Cold. Congrats to you also.

18 May 2004, 12:34 PM
the same from me ! :)

Ynnek Rellim
18 May 2004, 07:36 PM
Thanks for the congratulatory remarks and congrats to coldskier as well.

19 May 2004, 11:24 AM
Thanks all! And kudos to YR on surviving his sentence. ;)
