Topic: RPG- Consuming Force
Opening Notes (This is a Star Wars RP, not set in the time period of the movies. Also, please forgive any contradictions with the Legacy series, I have not read them, I don't know if Luke is even alive or what. Please do not spoil it for me by correcting me as I have bought the first book in the series and will read them all once I finish the Space Wolf Omnibus.)
The year is 3200 a.b.y. But that time system is no longer used. The time is now defined as b.c. and a.c. Before Coruscant, and after Coruscant. This refers to the Coruscant event, which took place in 289 a.b.y. A mag bomb, a one-of-a-kind super weapon (that releases an explosion the size of a planet, but stays in the atmosphere, held in by the magnetic field, spreading the fire around every square mile of the planet many times over in a few seconds) was unleashed upon the planet. It was dropped by the Purists, a threat that had emerged from the Jedi War. The Jedi War took place between 277 a.b.y. and 289 a.b.y. It was a civil war between the Jedi Order, which had split into two factions. There was the side that adhered to the classic tenets of the beliefs of the Jedi, called the Knights, or collectively the Legion, and the side that was following their feelings, that the Force was growing and moving in a new direction. They believed that the Jedi had constricted the force, that there was no "Dark" or "Light" side. They wanted free of the restrictions of the Order, and their goal is to make the whole galaxy become one with the Force. These are the Purists. The Jedi were all but exterminated in the explosion. A very few happened to be in another sector of the galaxy at the time. The entire city/planet of Coruscant was reduced to ashes. It is nothing more than a blackened rock of a world. There are no inhabitants. There is a 300 mile-wide crater, with a crack starting at each side and stretching for thousands of miles, digging deep into the crust. The galaxy has never been the same.
The Purists have disappeared from the galactic scene for the past few thousand years, presumably meditating and growing stronger in the Force. The Force itself has grown exponentially. More and more Force-sensitive people are being born, not a direct result of, but related to the Purist activity. It is simply unexplainable. These Force-users have no code, no proper training, and no purpose. Since the defeat of the Sith thousands of years ago, the term now refers to any non-Jedi Force user. There are no true Sith. It is common on the battlefield to see these adepts, of any species or faction. And there are many battlefields. The galaxy is on fire. The Twi'ilek race is almost extinct, conquered by the Zabraks. Trandoshan population has shrank severely due to self-destructive practices, and in turn the Wookies have grown in number and prosperity. Humans are more diversified, due to many secluded gene pools. Mandalorians in particular have, due to natural selection, from birth, more strength, agility, and better reflexes than the average man, but not to the point of superiority. Mandalore has cut off all hyperspace routes to itself for the past few hundred years. They are preparing for something big. Mando Mercs are still prevalent in the galaxy, but bounty hunters are not as common.
If the Purists succeed, then the galaxy will become one with the Force, and cease to exist as we know it.
Here are the possibilities for characters:
Sith (remember, not necessarily evil, just not a Jedi. Jedi are very rare.)
Jedi (Legion or Purist)
Mandalorian (Mercenary, or honor bound Vode)
And, special characters. Only experienced RPers, please.
Descendant of Fett (Unite the Mandos and choose a side, or not)
The Last Iridorian (Very amazing combat skills, Trandoshan size bloodlust, and possibly a bigger effect on the galactic fate than forseen)

The Chosen One (A Jedi Knight that could bring balance to the Force, or destroy it. Did the misread prophecy mean Anakin, or was it this Force-user?)
