Re: Aliit Forum

Yeah that grammar stuff was killing me. I orginally had it with the and's and so forth and it read a bit long, plus I was looking aboud at more Mando'a examples and grammatically correct things and those words are used archaiclly I think. I know in other languages they drop articials a bunch too. Thanks vodes.

Re: Aliit Forum

Hey Clan, just remembered I was going to move my character sheets from my old thread over here; so here they are.

Personality: Calm under pressure; Very blunt and to the point with outsiders, but easygoing and cheerful with Clanmates and friends; Extremely protective of those close to him

Ship: Blood Hawk Modified StarViper Assault fighter; Laser cannons replaced with six long barrel Mass driver rifles (which fire a energized projectiles that pass through shields unhindered); Ship is controlled by a R2 droid intelligence that was installed into the main computer, effectively making the entire ship a droid; Crew:1; Passengers: 2; Prisoners: 1 *modified passenger seat, similar to the one used in “The Chronicles of Riddick”*


And the Gray Jedi (or sometimes Sith) me:


Name: Ralin Drakus

Age:27

Force abilities: Force choke, Force push, Heal, Force Wave, Force lightning, Strong telekinesis

Appearance: Tall, lean build, Wears dark double-breasted leather knee length robe under a black hooded cloak, tall black boots, and wears an Arkanian Blinder mask fitted to a helmet that covers his entire head *helmet is a support unit for a terrible injury to the back of the head from a lightsaber blow that nearly killed him; helmet just remain on, though he can remove the mask.  Right arm is also an artificial unit; very strong,* also wears a pair of strength enhancing gauntlets

Personality: Very cold and distant, doesn’t say much

StarShip: the Dark Spirit
A custom designed “flying wing”-like craft *think Padme’s ship that gets blown up in the begining of Ep. II, just without that protruding tail section and a forward mounted cockpit, with low slung engines, and painted dark gray;*  Has about the same amount of room as the Ebon Hawk; Droid intelligence installed into main commuter *yes, like the Blood Hawk above*; Weapons: Armed with six forward firing laser canons in the wings, plus a twin blaster turret mounted behind the cockpit, four forward firing torpedo launchers, two missile launchers
Defenses: Double shielding, average armor plating
Speed: .7 Hyperdrive, about the same real-space speed as the Millennium Falcon, but less maneuverable

Anybody else have a prefered character[s] you'd like to share, or a concept character you'd like advice on for improvement?

WB ner vod

Name:Ano'rkh
Age: 21
Species: Rodian
Occupation: Smuggler
Loyalties: To himself, and the people he smuggles for, as long as and until he's paid for the job.
Weapons: Blastec DL-44, vibroknife, asst'd throwing knives.
Armor: Blast vest
Appearance: 4'6" Blue skin, spacers
gear.
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Rodian_UM.jpg
Personality: Excited about life as a smuggler, Ano'rkh went all out and borrowed massive amounts of money from Jabba the Hutt to outfit his ship just like his idol, Han Solo. After the modifications were done, it seemed like Ano'rkh would spend the rest of his life working off his debts to the greedy Hutt crimelord. Then it happened, Jabba was killed shortly after the arrival of the infamous Han Solo himself, encased in carbonite. At that point, Ano'rkh knew he was free and set off as an independant smuggler. Then as he was running a cargo of weapons to an unknown client, his ship was captured by a Peacekeeper fleet. He thought he was done for, doomed to spend the next twenty years on some force-forsaken penal colony. Fortune smiled on him when he was given the chance to make a deal. He agreed, making his way to Kuat City to deliver a simple datapad to two Mandalorian mercenaries. As we all know by now, it wan't that simple...

_____________________________________________________________________________________
Name: They'da Starjammer
Age: 26
Lightsaber style/color: dual-bladed (Darth Maul), dual-weapon class lightsaber/light-greatsword style blades! The hilts would be black, with adjustable hilt guards to compensate for the weapon class adjustment from "lightsaber" to "light-greatsword." The blades would go from silver (lightsaber mode) to red (light-greatsword mode) and disconnect into two seperate dual-weapon class lightsabers. They are linked by a length of coiled chain, forged from mandalorian iron, with incorporated RARE cortosis ore fibers (which disrupt the flow of the energy of lightsaber blades, shorting out the blade's loop, and rendering the attacker's weapon temporarily useless.) The weapons are wielded similarly to those of the main character in "GOD OF WAR: CHAINS OF OLYMPUS"http://www.consoles-emulators.com/wp-co … 311125.jpg (Props to Zoncxs for the original design which inspired this one.)http://www.bobafett.com/boards/viewtopi … 117#p53117(And for the design and construction to my explicit specifications!)http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/5784 … udykf6.jpg
Lightsaber Settings
Focus crystal:
Durindfire gem -distinctive silver sheen
Power crystals:
Opila - produce an intense beam that seems extraordinarily quick to the cut.
Rubat - produces a clearly defined blade that a Jedi can easily track, making it easier to hit opponents.
Great-lightsword Setting
Focus crystal:
Phond- produces a fiercely burning light saber beam (Red)
Power crystals:
Damind- produce a clearly defined beam of subtly wider width and length.
Nextor - produces a volatile blade that can cause surprising amounts of damage
MODS
Internal Switch: The switch to activate the saber is actually located on the inside of the saber’s hilt. This is to insure only a Jedi may use it. Of course, the Jedi must use Telekinesis in order to move the switch.
Palm print recognition lockout:This modification insures that the light saber will not operate in the hands of unauthorized personnel. A small sensor array built into the hilt of the light saber constantly reads the current operator, insuring that the cellular makeup and palm print configuration matches that of certified individuals. Should the pattern not match, the weapon simply shuts down and/or will not work.
Double Focus lens: 2 separate places for crystals to be allowing up to 2 pairs of 3 crystals in one light saber, when the switch is flipped the other set is put into place, allowing different arrangements of crystals.
Chain: A chain has been added to each hilt giving They'da more tactics in combat mode, specializing in his Vapaad form. The chain is 5 feet long. The chain is stored inside the end of each hilt and is retractable for Dual blade mode (Darth Maul). It is of Mandalorian Iron, interwoven with fibers of lightsaber disrupting, VERY RARE, cortosis ore.
Fighting style: basics of Vapaad FormVII AKA "Way of The Vornskr" (similar to Darth Maul's Juyo style, but created by Mace Windu). The most suitable form for his unique weapon.http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Form_VII:_Juyo_/_Vaapad
Species/ Physical Description: Dark blue skinned Twi'lek. Wears custom armor of Jensaraai Defender (woven with rare cortosis ore fibers that are resistant to lightsaber attacks.)

Powers: danger sense, animal speech/control, sense force, TK,"ballistakinesis"(power in Jensaraai tradition, similar to telekinesis, which accelerates the velocity of objects to lethal speeds), force leap, lightsaber control (allows Jedi to become one with weapon in combat-"SW official RPG"), absorb/dissipate energy, cloud minds, minimize Force presence, etc.
History/motivation/personality: Raised in the Jensaraai tradition on Myrkr. His father as a young man, had fled after witnessing their previous leader, Nikko Tyris, killed with two of his followers by Jedi, who claimed the Jensaari were corrupted by their Sith mixed teachings. He fled for fear of his and his young wife's (Tylar'ra Secura's) safety. Years later, They'da was born, and his mother, not a force user, died in childbirth. He was taught what little his father knew of the Jensaari tradition, which was too primitive in practice to suffer the dark side's taint. Honor and discipline, as well as respect for those traits in his enemies are what he learned, as well as the use of agression (Vapaad fighting form) in defense of what he holds dear. He was taught to forge his lightsaber and his own personal armor, taking the vornskr, Myrkrs native force weilding predator, as his animal influence. Shortly after his Master granted him the title of Jensaari Defender, his Master left, urged to return by the Jensaari's Saari-kar. He is loyal and values loyalty in others, especially his best friend, Scratch. He is also dedicated to mastery of Vapaad. He has left Myrkr to strike out on his own. Approached by the newly appointed Supreme Overlord of The Imperial Order, Luke Skywalker, They'da Starjammer has become Skywalker's High Inquisitor, in exchange for Skywalker's "protection" of the Jensaari, allowing them to remain hidden. He has been tasked to hunt force users and offer them a place in the Order or neutralize them, if they are too dangerous. He works hard to maintain the discipline to avoid the dark side. He fears Skywalker is consumed by it, but that his facade masks a man who can be redeemed.

Name: Colebin Calid
Age: 21
Species: Human
Occupation:
Loyalties:
Force Powers: limited danger sense, lifesense, and sense force
Weapons:
Armor: Blast vest
Appearance:
Personality/History/Motivation: The Cloak of the Sith was a mysterious region of the Outer rim which included the planet Roon. The region was hard to navigate, making Roon somewhat inaccessible; only two hyperspace routes were known to reach the planet. Raised on the planet Roon until the age of 14, Colebin learned his parents were actually co-conspirators in a secret Sith cult. They felt that he was ready to carry on the legacy of the Sith, and agreed to allow Colebin to begin his training. He and his parents moved to Belderone, in the Outer Rim territories, to establish a hidden Sith cult in that sector. He was trained for a few years until the arrival of the Peacekeeper's 501st Legion. They had arrived to reclaim KDY's AT-AT assembly factory, when the newly promoted Commander Daine Jir was informed by an unknown traitor within the cult, of its existence. Colebin Calid's home was destroyed and his parents were executed. Colebin fled to several planets, taking on odd jobs, until ending up working at Kuat Drive Yards. He was driven by his mother to eventually assume the Sith Lord mantle, but has had very little training in the use of his limited Sith teachings. With his mother gone, Colebin has little left of his training, save several clues to guide him eventually to artifacts hidden by his parents and other members of the cult. He is not quite sure if that is a legacy he wishes to assume.

Character 'Sheet':
Name: Captain Morrigan Blackmoon
Age: unknown, appears to be in his mid 40's.
Gender: male
Nationality: English
Occupation: Cursed Pirate Captain
Appearance:
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj257/Virulent_Messiah/Captain_Blackmoon.jpg
Weapons: 2x English Flintlock Blunderbuss w/ Grenade cups, 2x French Flintlock Dagger/Pistols, cutlass, a large collection of exotic blades and daggers.               
Ship: The Harbynger, has 5 staysails making it easer to sail against the wind than running before the wind. It is armed with port and starboard guns. It carries 46 broadside 6 pound guns, 23 on each side; 18 guns are located on the main deck, 20 on the gun deck, and 8 on the upper deck: 4 on the quarter-deck and 4 in the forecastle. The gunports on the gun deck are in the shape of wailing, tormented faces, with the ports appearing at the mouths. Its full broadside contains 23 cannonballs, called shot, and weighs one hundred and 62.652 lbs. (38 kg). On the bow however, she mounts a pair of bow chasers, each in the form of a triple-barreled gun. Each separate barrel fires individually, but the trio rotates to present a fresh barrel to fire again in the style of a Gatling gun. The empty barrel can then be reloaded for its next turn. This enables The Harbynger to continually fire at the ships it is pursuing. http://www.allakhazam.com/e3/media/frontpage/POTCO---GhostShip1_Disney.jpg
Brief History: Formerly a British noble, the man who came to be known as Morrigan Blackmoon, was disgraced and removed of his nobility and holdings. No longer a member of the English court, he took a new name and became a pirate. He and his crew soon grew to notoriety for their attacks against the Royal Navy's vessels. Having joined forces with other pirate captains, they all sailed for London, attempting to overthrow the rulers of England and take the nation for themselves. After some infighting among the captains, they were lost at sea and years later only four ships returned, their sails ripped and their hulls rotted. On board were the cursed, twenty pirates condemned to un-life. Their true, skeletal forms are revealed in the moonlight, and they can only be killed by a stab to the orb of darkness that resides in their chests. Having removed his heart and hidden it for safe keeping, Blackmoon seems truly undefeatable...

Re: Aliit Forum

Here is the father of my character, Ralin Drakus.  I created him for the RPG RepComm-Alpha Squad

This is basiclly just an edit of Ralin, but I really like how his history came out, so thought I'd share him here. 


Name: Konnor Drakus

Age: 37

Species: Mandalorian/Human

Occupation: Freelance mercenary, but has spent the last several years working as a sub-instructor for the Republic’s Clone Army under Kal Skirata; Follows a strict Honor code and will only accept missions/contracts that fit it

Loyalties: To his Clan and Clan Brothers/Sisters

Weapons: Heavy repeating blaster rifle; A cut down repeating carbine that he uses as a pistol *great rate of fire, but heat output is high; and a sniper rifle for 'special' jobs*
Gauntlet mounted weapons/gadgets include: Dart/Rocket launcher; mini-disintegrater; two wrist lasers, one in each gauntlet; A fiber-cord line with grappling hook for scaling/descending obstacles ; A two-prong retractable18 inch blades in right gauntlet (like those used in the Predator movies); Strength enhanced

Armor: http://cid-086a971ab6dab929.spaces.live … lideshow=0
Black Mandalorian armor over gray flight-suite; features half-cape *Kama*(like a Snowtrooper’s, but black on the outside and gray inside, made of heat-resistant materials to resist blaster shots)

Appearance:6’1’’; Heavy, strong build, but still fast and quick; Short military style cut dark brown hair

Personality: Super calm under pressure; Very blunt and to the point with outsiders; , soft spoken and gentle with Clan members and friends; Extremely protective of those close to him

Ship: Star Fire
As part of his payment for taking the contract to train the clones, Konnor accepted a prototype ARC-170 Heavy Recon. Fighter.  The advanced fighter had many features that never made it into the production model due to production cost.

The targeting computer was more advanced
The laser cannons were more powerful
Sublight engines and maneuvering thrusters were faster
Hyperdrive was of a higher grade, rated at .9   

Konnor also had the craft customized during his stay on Kamino.  He had the wingtip cannons linked to his primary weapons systems that were before controlled by a copilot, converted two of the craft’s six proton torpedo launchers into guided missile pods, he replaced the copilot’s position with a sleeping bunk, he ordered the armor plating to be replaced with a higher grade metal and thickened, replaced the two rear-firing single blaster cannons with a three barrel rotating laser mounted in a single turret and placed it under driod control, and converted the gunner’s space into extra storage room. 

Short History: Little is known about Konnor Drakus before he arrived on Kamino other then what he claimed; that he was a longtime mercenary based on the planet Mandalore.  He had no record with the Old Republic or in the Jedi archives before taking Jango's offer to help train clones, suggesting his absolute subtlety or that he worked almost exclusively in the Outer Rim and/or beyond. 

Kal Skirata is believed to have worked with him at some point in the past, and it’s been claimed that it was Kal who suggested to Jango that Konnor offered a position as a drill instructor for the Army of the Republic.  During the his time on Kamino, Konnor was known among the clones he trained as an iron fisted leader who never tolerating lapses in discipline or one who forgave mistakes lightly.  However, he was also known to often take moments to open himself to his pupils and share his experiences and thoughts with them freely, especially later in a platoon’s training.  Most of all, he was seen as a man who would never give up on a clone.  It is rumored that he thwarted several Kaminoan attempts to ‘weed out’ some of his platoon who were not meeting the cloner’s standards in emotional or behavioral ways. 

After the battle of Geonosis, he resigned as an instructor and returned to Mandalore and his wife for a shot period.

After several months, Konnor contacted the Jedi through the Kaminoan’s, offering his service as an officer in the Army of the Republic.  Called to Coruscant, he is given an assignment from Master Mace Windu himself…..

Re: Aliit Forum

You guys make my characters look small and unthought of with all that detail. I'm not sure if I even know how to have that information right from the start.

(I still can seem to find the right Mando'a word for welcome. Perhaps its something not said amongst Mandos?)

YAY *HAPPILY DANCES AROUND FOR NO PARTICAL REASON* Ehm...see, I kind of accidentally found this thread and I just happened to be interested. So I wasn't exactly looking for a BBF fan club...so...can somebody tell me where to find out about Mando words?

Shoot me *or for some REALLY deep characters V_M* a PM and ask.  I'm more into Mandos, and don't remember all those details about lightsaber crystals and such, but give me a basic idea and I can try to help you expand on it if you like. 

This is the reason I'd like to see some character concepts.  If you have a character but arn't 100% happy with him/her/it, post it here and ask for comments/suggestions.  I'm sure if we put our helmets together we can come up with something   big_smile

Re: Aliit Forum

This is my commando from RPG: Republic Commando: Alpha Squad. I did it very fast, and will maybe add more to it sometime. So its shorter than a proper one.

Name:RC-1312: "Kad".
Personality: Though informal squad sergeant, he is never aloof, and prefers to be just another brother to his squadmates. Enjoys jokes, and fun, but less so than Jag.  (sorry for the length, have to go.)
Appearance: Clone, clean-shaven and hair cut short to military regulations. Armor: Standard underneath, Mandalorian (bantha) skull splashed across left side of his armor (chest and side). Red slash across front and top of helmet, right shoulder pauldron  (sp).
Weapons: DC-17m, DC-15s sidearm, conc rifle.

Re: Aliit Forum

RPG Concept Alert!!!

Hi Vode! 

In the chat yesterday, I was just kidding around and suggested that a handful of Mandos  *4 or 5 roughly; maybe more if we can get the members*  could conquer the Naboo.  After some consideration, I feel that this concept might have some merit. 

Timeline: Could vary greatly.  Either during the Mandalorian Wars, or most anytime between the Mandalorian Wars and 1000 years before that *I believe it was roughly 1000 years before the movies when the Boba/Jango style of ‘bucket helmet with T-visor’ became the standard for most all Mandos; if that’s wrong please let me know*

Mission:  Again, variable.  Would depend largely on what timeline that’s chosen.  We could be sent by Mandalore during the Mandalorian Wars to hinder supplies being sent to the front; on a Merc being paid to cause chaos for a reason I can’t think of just this second; or, as I was first thinking, a small party of drunk and/or board Mandos looking to have a good time  tongue

Any thoughts to clean this one up?


RPG Concept II

Anybody else out there play the EA game Freedom Fighters? 

If not, the basic plot is that the Rooskies *Communist Russians* won the Cold War and are now invading the USA.  The game is about you fighting them off in New York City.  Based in the city’s sewers, you lead the revolution against the Red oppressors. 

I think this is a SMOKIN’ RPG waiting to happen!  Could be set during the game timeline and we’re another rebel Cell in NY, or a completely different group in another city, or even a different country.

Any suggestions comments? 

I would probably have posted Freedom Fighters already, but I really don’t feel I’m really ‘RPG moderator’ material after my inability to keep up to speed on ES5  *for those on ES5, sorry for how that’s gone; might try to salvage that soon*   More then willing to be the little voice in the ear of anybody else who would like to start one of these for ideas/help on working it.

So, what da y’all think?

Re: Aliit Forum

have to say the second's GREAT. I love Mando's, but its so open-ended, and a change sounds good. I'd definitely join, cus it sounds like a lot of fun. Haven't played it, but I like the idea. Kandosii, vod.
