I shortened my namefaggery edition.Affiliated Twitter: https://twitter.com/SithEmpQuestYou are Zakm'yle'neras, better known as Mylene, you are a chiss, you are 10 years old and you are just about to take a shuttle to Korriban's surface.You were previously in the middle of a riddle smackdown with some of your fellow acolytes; the twins Zakk & Kagg, and the third human of the group, Moriana. Kagg won, and then someone you presume to be an overseer came to collect you all.Now I realise I was quite remiss in my descriptions of the gathered populace in the last thread, mostly because I was a glorious combination of tired, lazy and a newfag. This shall be remedied.Zakk & KaggHumans, male, identical twins. Dark tan skin, blue-grey eyes, black hair. In pretty good shape as children go, and wearing pretty nice clothes. Surname unknown, but they referred to a Darth Zarkus as their father.MorianaHuman, female. Pale white skin, green eyes, red-orange hair. Looks skinny and sickly. Has some sort of symbol branded on her face over her left eye. Wouldn't be unfair to describe her clothing as ragged. Surname likewise unknown.A Twi'lekTwi'lek, male. Light blue skin, didn't see him up close enough to pick out eye colour or any distinctive features. Looked about as well off as Moriana, which is to say, not at all.An alienUnknown species and gender. Mottled brown skin, large black eyes, seemed to have some kind of breathing apparatus grafted to their face. Dressed in pretty standard travelling garb.[1/2]
[2/2]"Acolytes. With me."The instruction is pretty clear cut, this isn't a request or advice, you'll do what he says or else, more or less.Moriana and the Twi'lek seem pretty quick to obey, standing to attention and moving closer to the robed man, followed shortly thereafter by the other alien. Zakk and Kagg seem a little caught up in their death-stares, and it takes you getting up and joining the others to make them set aside their reignited rivalry for now and do as they're told.Talking as he leads the way, the human introduces himself; "I am Overseer Galsenn, and I will be ultimately responsible for you during your time on Korriban. You'll report to other Overseers for specific instruction, but in the end, you answer to me."He pauses as he comes to a door, inserting a keycard to open the way to the Academy's own shuttle bay."I trust you won't fail me. If you do, it'll be me you beg for your life."Well. This is all getting quite intense for a group of ten year olds. But Korriban never was known for its childcare, and the Overseers are tasked with weeding out the weak, not looking after them.[ ] Ask Galsenn a question (specify)[ ] Stay quiet and board the shuttle
>>36271052>[X] Stay quiet and board the shuttleLets be quiet, observe, and profile the man. See how we can appeal to him and what his personality is like, should we actually need to use authority to our advantage.
>>36271042Why'd you have to go and start when I'm going to bed? I fucking love Star Wars, goddamnit.
>>36271052>[ ] Stay quiet and board the shuttleyou're really new. you post the link to the new thread in the tweet, not #thread
>>36271052[X] Stay quiet and board the shuttleWatch and learn, we need every advantage we can get and it could work to our advantage if people believe us meek and obedient.
[ x] Stay quiet and board the shuttle
>>36271212Wouldn't respect be better? Staying quiet would be better for tactical profiling, get our first forays into the Thrawn approach. Personality analysis and calculated attacks at their blind spots.
>>36271052>[ ] Stay quiet and board the shuttle
>>36271264Fair enough I suppose. If we can get the other students to either like us or respect us then we stand a much better chance of avoiding backstabbing and getting the teachers to respect us will probably result in them putting in a good word for us.
>>36271052[ ] Ask Galsenn a question (Wanna force arm wrestle?)
>>36271052Wow, I suck at this. I'm going to be an excuse-mongering goob and blame it on the alcohol. I mean it's not like I'm such an idiot I thought #thread would actually make a link, but equally posting a link sure is a lot faster than making you lot go find the thread in the catalog. Anyhow, learning by doing. That's how we roll in this neck of the woods.---Galsenn seems very serious, probably best just to do as he says and take your time to gauge his personality, figure out how best to proceed to get on and stay on his good side. In fact you're pretty sure that's standard behaviour at all levels of Imperial society, if you plan on surviving long at least. Learning how to make nice with people you either hate, or probably will some day, the good lessons are already being learned!So, keeping your mouth shut, you follow the Overseer's lead to the shuttle and climb aboard. The others follow suit, apparently taking your lead here. Maybe an unintentional side-effect of your little display back in the waiting area, but not necessarily unwelcome?Once all six of you are aboard and seated, Galsenn himself boards, closing the hatch behind him."You'll find that I, like the Empire, am harsh, unforgiving, and fair. I'm here to produce the next generation of Sith, so no, I will not sabotage you. That's for your fellows to do. But neither will I hold your hands, I'd sooner see the lot of you dead than living embarrassments."Pause for effect."So know that your stay here will be an only slightly more forgiving mirror of your future as real Sith. There are rules, but if nobody sees you break them... well. Your goal will be to survive, and not just to succeed, but to set yourself even further ahead by having your peers fail. To be Sith is to be ruthless, to do what you must to not just survive, but to thrive."[1/2]
>>36271545[2/2]The shuttle's engines kick in, and you feel the craft lift into the air to begin its journey."If you don't understand now, fear not, you'll learn quickly enough."And then you're off. Launching towards your new, potentially very short and violent, life on Korriban.You suppose you've a few minutes to pass, and Galseen seems to have nothing further to add.[ ] Remain quiet[ ] Talk to Overseer Galsenn[ ] Talk to another Acolyte (specify)
>>36271567[X] Talk to Overseer GalsennAsk him about what we're going to be doing, what our next few days are going to be like, what are our living arrangements like, assuming we don't already know any of these things. Maximum information means maximum preparedness.
>>36271567>[x ] Remain quietLet another more stupider acolyte ask the questions.
>>36271567[X] Talk to Overseer GalsennAsk him if we can ask questions. If we can ask him what we can be expecting from the training. If not we shut up.Anyways I am thinking we try to team up with the twins on the basis that we can deal with the Acolytes without proper Sith parents first. Playing them on their feelings of superiority. The girl from earlier we can probably befriend and gain her as an ally. Twi'lek is probably a force sensitive slave so the only real wild card is the strange alien.
>>36271609true, but I'd rather ask somewhere not in front of the other acolytes so that they aren't also prepared.
We should try to basically learn things and be alert and aware at this stage in our development. It's unlikely that we'll be able to deal with any other acolytes permanently right now, and we'll do ourselves no favors by making enemies.If anything, we should try to be actively friendly to everyone while subtly pitting them against each other. We should also try to be the kind of acolyte Galsenn wants to see in his eyes, whatever that might be.
>>36271567[ ] Talk to Overseer Galsenn "so it's okay to break rules so long as you are not caught? what is the punishment if you are? death?"
>>36271685I'm with this guy.
>>36271567Deciding that now's the time to get some information and network with the authority, you make your way over to where the Overseer is seated, addressing him as formally as you can without seeming, well, sycophantic."Excuse me, Overseer? May I ask you something?""I imagine anything you want to know will be part of the more formal induction in the Academy itself, but..." he regards you as a pawnbroker might a piece of jewellery, trying to assess your worth. "Ask away.""What can I expect from my first few days? Where will we be living, for instance?"He seems almost displeased. Perhaps he's heard this line of questioning before, or he expected something less mundane? "Exactly the sort of thing you'll be told very shortly."[ ] Anything else?[ ] No further questions
>>36271957>"How is your sex life?"No i'm not serious
>>36271957>He seems almost displeased. Perhaps he's heard this line of questioning before, or he expected something less mundane?Shit I knew we should have asked him something cooler.
>>36271957[X] Anything else? What happened to the last group of acolytes he watched over? How many survived? Was he pleased by the outcome or disappointed? What kind of mistakes did they make that we could avoid?Then if he's still receptive to questioning:Was he an acolyte when he was younger, or if not, how did he obtain formal training. How did he become an overseer? Does he like his position?
>>36271957>[ ] No further questions
>>36272010We aint grim dark enough for him.[X] No further questions
>>36272055This is what we should be asking
>>36271957"Can I ask... what happened to the last group of acolytes you trained?"He looks thoughtful. That's the sort of inside information he probably shouldn't be revealing if he wants to keep this thing fair. But that's a different sort of fair; nothing's stopping the other acolytes from asking, or finding out some other way."As you might guess, only one graduated. Human by the name of Hallen, ended up in Expansion and Diplomacy. Bright lad."[ ] Ask about Hallen[ ] Ask about the failures[ ] Something else[ ] End the conversation
>>36272290[X] Ask about the failuresWhat went wrong?
>>36272290[ x] Ask about the failuresContinues conversation and also gives us some info
>>36272290[X] End the conversationHaving him confirm for the rest that we're doing the whole "There can only be one!" thingy here might begin to make them paranoid.
>>36272290[X] Something else"I only really ever hear about one acolyte in any given group graduating, with all the others failing. Have you ever overseen a group where this was not the case? Or, is there a notable group where this has not been the case?"
>>36272290>Ask about the failures>Ask about when we get lightsabers>Ask about when we learn to shoot lightning>ask about his sex life
>>36272290>[ ] Ask about the failuresDid they die, or are some of them still living?
>>36272290"So what happened to the other ones?"Galsenn looks you over. Trying to gauge exactly what you mean, perhaps."I suppose you might not have heard, being chiss. Typically failures don't survive, some fall along the way, and most Overseers set a final trial the only one acolyte can win, if more than one is left."He doesn't seem to be all too bothered about saying this openly, either, not that he's projecting loudly enough for everyone to hear, but he's certainly not keeping his voice down to prevent listening in, either."You're an odd sort of kid, most acolytes your age fear the Overseers and keep their distance." he adds, again looking thoughtful.The motion of the landing craft changes, slowing down to a stop, then beginning to descend vertically, just about quickly enough that it makes your stomach lurch."We've arrived." Galsenn announces, and shortly thereafter the hatch opens, flanked by two armoured Imperials. "Welcome home."The lot of you disembark, and Galsenn leads the way. A long red path stretches out before you, winding its way into the Valley of the Dark Lords.[ ] Stay by Galsenn[ ] Walk with the other Acolytes

Im going to suggest that our end game be, as extreme as it may be, to train with one or two of our fellow acolytes and make sure we all force the overseer to have finals cchallrnge, where by our group kills him and declare ourselves more than competent beyond his meager ability to work by himself
>>36272685You clamber out of the shuttle last, letting the other acolytes file out before you. Perhaps unsurpisingly, Zakk and Kagg are the first to disembark, practically racing to be the first to touch their boots to the sacred soil. The two aliens are next, then Moriana.You bring up the rear for a while as the group makes it way into the sprawling valley, and you can tell there'll be quite a bit of walking from the landing pad to the monolithic Academy building. After a little while you find yourself side-by-side with Moriana,[ ] Talk to Moriana[ ] Try to get the aliens' attention[ ] Try to get the twins' attention[ ] Shut up and take in the scenery

>>36273018Your father's description of Korriban was not wrong, it's truly something else. You've felt the power of the force within you before, but to be this close to the Valley of the Dark Lords, taking in the immense dark side aura all around you... it's captivating. You revel in the experience for quite some time, before finally turning to your fellow acolyte, the only other female in the group as far as you can tell."So, you don't seem much like Zakk and Kagg, how did you come to be here?"Moriana seems like she's similarly preoccupied with the raw presence of the tombs. Your voice catches her by surprise, breaking the spel.."Me? Oh, I..." she pauses a moment, gathering her thoughts. "I saved a man's life with the force, didn't even know how I did it, but he brought me to the Empire to learn to control my power."That's... incredibly vague. Seems like she's evading giving any real detail.[ ] Ask about the story[ ] Ask about the man[ ] Drop it

>>36273975Well, she definitely seems like she'd rather keep her past to herself. You figure perhaps a bit of give-and-take might help you, give her something inconsequential about yourself, hopefully get something interesting out of her in return. If nothing else, she was at least able to identify the gand when you weren't, she might know more about the galaxy that you don't."I was born for this, my father is a Sith Lord. He fought on Coruscant."The girl seems taken aback, not quite sure what to say to that."Huh."Well this has been a thrilling conversation.

>>36274366We should quietly apologize for cheating her out of the riddle contest, by rights she actually won but it was so important to have one of the twins win and set them against each other. Stroke her ego somewhat.Always been fond of playing kingmaker, in this case probably followed by betraying the eventual victor.
>>36274485Oh... Oh yeah, did not pay attention to that option at all. Watching TV and playing on TG at the same time is not my strongest skill, I such at multitasking.
>>36274560Actually don't say it was about SEPARATING the twins, instead say it was about "not uniting them against a common rival."
>>36274560Is it really wise to let her know our game plan?
>>36274637Not really, we should be the team mom/idol then stab em all in the back.
>>36274637That's BARELY even a gameplan if you do it right, two acolytes with a pre-existing connection is such a blatant threat to everyone that isn't them that being pretty much open about wanting to keep them apart really isn't playing your hand too much.
>>36274685Unfortunately I suspect team mom would be a pretty risky move in the long run. It's the nature of sith training for not everyone to make it to the end, and the moment we don't care that someone got taken out is the moment everyone knows we're not actually on their side at all.Better to pick one peer and make them the lead, then betray THEM when they're the only one left to betray
>>36274764Or we could not be stupid, apologize to her for cheating her out of her win, and not display that we have nefarious thoughts about the acolytes to another acolyte.
So you know, this post is turning out longer than I anticipated. But I am writing one.
>>36274820Even admitting that she actually won is making an ulterior motive obvious, if we bring it up at all it's best to demonstrate as tame an ulterior motive as possible.
>>36274851>Even admitting that she actually won is making an ulterior motive obviousNo it isn't. She was there and could see just as well as we could that if we had let her win there would have been a fight.All letting her know she deserved to win does is make us seem even headed and reletivly friendly.
>>36274851>>36274820>>36274813>>36274764>>36274685Let's just see how things play out for now and we can work out a plan based on what will happen in the next few posts. But everyone is in an agreement that the twins needs to be turn against eachother no?
>>36274764Still, letting her know we're already in action may make us a target for being quick on taking out the competition, maybe she already did with that riddle game..... >>36274813 this sounds better
>>36274366You decide not to keep trying to get her to talk, it'll probably only be counter-productive. Get her to open up some other way in the future, maybe. For her part, Moriana looks glad, a little more comfortable, maybe. Evidently she's not precisely a social butterfly.The quiet doesn't persist for long. Soon you're into the immediate perimeter of the Academy, Galsenn stops you all briefly to pass some guards, and you then pass into the bustle of Imperials and Sith alike around the main entrance.But there's no time to socialise, Galsenn leads you straight up the stairway and into the main structure, where he meets with two other Sith, who seem to have been waiting for him; one pureblood, one human, both male."These are Assistant Overseers Aster and Zorrin. If I'm not present, you answer to them." Galsenn explains. "After your formal induction, they'll also show you to your chambers. Now, speaking of."Galsenn gestures towards a long corridor, and leads you, at last, into a small classroom. It's remarkably mundane, all things considered, ten individual desks set up facing a larger one at the far end of the room, where the three Overseers take up position. "Be seated."The pureblood, Aster, you think, checks you're all present. Sort of a meaningless gesture, there's only six, but still. "Kagg Athreon, Moriana Vekta, Vorr Tivask, Zakk Athreon, Zakm'yle'neras... and, alien, your name is listed as Gand. That is a species.""This one has yet to earn its name." the gand responds.Aster sighs. "Given the lack of other gand acolytes, I suppose that'll do."[1/2]
[2/2]Galsenn speaks up again now. "Now, I'm sure you all know why you're here. You are strong in the force, and by Imperial law, you become Sith, or you die trying. In the coming years, you will learn the fundaments of Sith philosophy, how to wield a lightsaber in battle, and how to bend the living force to your will. When you're ready, you will travel elsewhere in the Empire to put your skills to use. And if you survive in the real galaxy, you will ultimately return here to construct your own lightsaber, face your final trial, and become apprenticed to a Sith Lord."He pauses. "It's no secret that most of you will not survive this process. It is not rare for entire groups to fail. It is exceedingly rare for more than one member of a group to succeed. With that said, murder of your fellow acolytes is strictly forbidden. If you're lucky, you'll be exiled to Korriban's wastelands. In all likeliness you'll simply be executed. No murder."Another pause. "Now, Assistant Overseer Aster will see Zakk, Kagg, Gand and Vorr to the male dorms. Moriana, Za... Mylene, Zorrin will show you two to the female dorms. They will answer any questions once you arrive."[ ] Go quietly[ ] Last chance to talk to the boys or Galsenn (specify who/what)
>>36275037>go quietlynothing really pressing worth irritating people by holding things up.However, on the subject of >>36274813, the fact that we'll be rooming with Moriana will make it harder to conspire against us with someone else, so that's something to consider.

Or is it just more of that emotions of all the world/galaxy type thing?Either way I wanna find the perfect blend tween the Living Force and the Calming Force, aka the short term planning one that lives in the moment and the long term planning that tkaes the long chess game approach
>look up chiss>children were between ages 1-10, and they experienced a rapid adolescence from 11-12 and were considered full adults by 13-14So much for playing kingmaker, there's no way we won't be considered the primary threat by everyone else within the year
>>36275300I really, really, wish we went Zeltron instead. Those guys would be fucking great. It'd be easy to swap over too!
>>36275300Nah don't worry, we just need to become team mom and make them loyal to us.
>>36275037My apologies for cutting us off after this one, but it's getting late again, and this seems like a natural place to have a pause. I imagine the next thread will be tomorrow, or Saturday if not. It's been super rad running this for you guys so far.---No point drawing attention to yourself and holding up the process. Time to go see where you'll be living for the next few years, and maybe get some rest.The human overseer leads you and Moriana back into the central hall of the Academy along with the pureblood and the male acolytes, both groups head upstairs, but two floors up, Zorrin leads the two of you away from the others. Like the rest of the building, your room is decorated in cold greys and blacks with a few red highlights, with furnishing that could best be described as "featureless and functional". Currently only one other acolyte seems to be in residence, a tall blonde human apparently asleep on the far side of the room.Home sweet home.---Well that's the end of this video, remember to rate the video, comment the video and subscribe if you want to see videos similar to this one. See ya.Which is to say, thanks for playing so far, Zorrin will take questions in Episode 3 if you guys want, and you know, everything else you'll wanna do I suppose. Twitter's at the top of the page, and I'll probably end up putting together a character sheet on Pastebin or something eventually. If there's a lot of demand for Zeltron I guess I'll consider it but generally I'd rather not throw down a retcon, it's just awkward.Love you all.
>>36275300On the flip side by that point anything that's a physical challenge for us will absolutely wipe the floor with the humans, so being the primary threat won't actually be a very big deal. Really this wasn't remotely fair timing on dad's part, he's kind of an asshole.
>>36275434>If there's a lot of demand for Zeltron I guess I'll consider it but generally I'd rather not throw down a retcon, it's just awkward.I'd certainly like it, they're great for the role we're trying to get.
>>36275434>If there's a lot of demand for Zeltron I guess I'll consider it but generally I'd rather not throw down a retcon, it's just awkward.It might be more appropriate to age us down a little.
>>36275279Far as I know it's just a lot of dicking around with lightsabers and the occasional force push on the enemy or intense starting at the lightsaber to get it to come back to you.>>36275319Wait... Are... Oh yeah Chiss arent the pink ones, Zeltron are the pink ones with pheromones! I really should read up on the races.>>36275434>but it's getting late againThat sounds like a possibility to start earlier next time, that would be dope for me at lest. Anyways thanks for the thread.
>>36275434Drop our age a little so we don't growth spike til the end of training. Might make it harder for us, but when shit hits the fan in the finals we'll be able to grow all out.
>>36275473Assuming everyone else is around 10 (or 10-equivalent for the Gand), it might make sense for us to have been sent at like 8, so the midpoint of our adolescence matches up with the midpoint of everyone else's. I mean I doubt dad would want a daughter who made sith through no actual merit of her own but just became a full adult with the physical capability that represents before everyone else.
>>36275467>zeltron were known to be extremely gullibleFUCK no
>>36275539Also if we start off smaller we need to be even more skilled to win, he gave the other students a handicap.
>>36275473>>36275534That's a better idea, come to think of it. I'll be completely honest here, I forgot Chiss have turbo-puberty. I'm down for decreasing our age to "10 by human standards that's totally what I meant" rather than "literally 10".Also yes I'll endeavour to start earlier in the future, too.
>>36275578Could you have a last vote in the thread to change to Zeltron?We're going to be doing a retcon either way, after all.
>>36275578So what do we all think is an appropriate age? I'm the anon that said 8, which honestly still gives us an advantage in the long term overall but also any younger than that feels WAY to young for us to even have a chance starting out.
>>36275610Zeltron= racial gullibility bonusAh no
>>36275632>Zeltron= racial gullibility bonusIm-fucking-plying.Just because they're known to be gullible doesn't mean shit.
>>36275610Fuck off we're not changing race, that's not why I'm here and enjoy playing this character

>>36275665Well, It'd be a vote to keep or change Chiss to Zeltron.>>36275655Well some people would like to, unlike you. Besides, it's not going to be too huge of a change anyway.
>>36275610How about no anon.The character is a Chiss, deal with it.>>36275631How about not actually mentioning a concrete number and just going by 'human like standard', let the QM handwaive/manage things in the background, it's not going to be that important.
>>36275610>Could you have a last vote in the thread to change to Zeltron?No.>We're going to be doing a retcon either way, after all.Fuck you.
>>36275682How is our race that important either?
>>36275610>>36275665I'm a goofus that's gone and archived this thread before it's ended because I didn't expect to have a vote come up at the end, so I'd prefer if we did it at the start of the next one so there's actually a record of it.>>36275631That said if/when there is to be one, I personally am in favour of this anon's idea to just make Mylene a bit younger. Probably just not directly specifying, as >>36275682suggests. But like I say, in the next thread.Like 99.9% against retconning race, mind you. I'd want, like, near-unanimous agreement which doesn't seem to exist.
>>36275701>>36275682>>36275655You guys can stop samefagging now.
>>36275701I'd prefer to change to Zeltron myself.
>>36275678>some peopleYou mean you.>it's not going to be too huge of a change anyway.You're an idiot.No we're not changing, suck it up and deal with it.>>36275702Age is something that can be fairly well dealt with easily without causing a fuss, but wanting to retcon the race of the MC just because you want a shiny little bonus? Fuck off metagaming scum, play the character.
>>36275715>Like 99.9% against retconning race, mind you. I'd want, like, near-unanimous agreement which doesn't seem to exist.Hold a final destination vote, then we can drop it forever.
>>36275715>so I'd prefer if we did it at the start of the next one so there's actually a record of it.I'd prefer you didn't seeing as it's only 1 anon and the rest don't want to change.You can easily enough fudge the age issue to not be a problem, but retconning the race just because of one or two anons who want to metagame? Fuck them.
How about we all play nice like adults?
>>36275725>but wanting to retcon the race of the MC just because you want a shiny little bonus?Isn't that exactly what you're doing with age?
>>36275735>>36275715This OP. It's likely just going to continue if you don't
>>36275735How about no, you know those votes can't stop samefagging, you just want to samefag your retcon.
>>36275758>>36275739>>36275725Can you stop being so aggressive? Wow, some people want a change. Big deal.
>>36275747You are stupid if you think that, as is, our age would give us a bonus pretty soon, but we're saying we should set it back so that it DOES NOT give us an advantage unduly...>>36275715No changing race please.
>>36275747Technically we're already set to have a bonus with the age... just not for the strategy most anons are hoping for. In a lot of ways this is more balancing out an eventual bonus with an early handicap.
>>36275739This isn't Eve about meta gaming you fucking idiot. People have been pushing for this since the start
>>36275772Yeah, pretty big deal seeing as you want to change the race of the fucking MC after its already been established.If you want to do that this late after we've been playing already for this long then why the hell are you still here?
>>36275781See: >>36275783It's just not the bonus YOU want. You metagaming cunt.
>>36275781>You are stupid if you think that, as is, our age would give us a bonus pretty soon, but we're saying we should set it back so that it DOES NOT give us an advantage unduly...In fairness it would give us a PHYSICAL bonus but a social penalty from having such an obvious advantage and everyone wants to play social.
>>36275682This solves the problem and the race change is put to an end
>>36275800Race has hardly influenced the quest, and where it has it will influence it in the same way despite the hangs.
>>36275801I'm not metagaming at all, I wanted to play a Chiss, so I'm here playing a Chiss.If you want to play something else, go find something else or make your own.And you honestly cannot possibly even try to use that argument, the initial reasoning, and the reasoning behind your entire argument for changing race has been based on that racial bonus.
>>36275823> and the reasoning behind your entire argument for changing race has been based on that racial bonus.No it hasn't, you've been assuming this since the start.
>>36275820The problem is that we're already perfectly fine with the character we have, but now they want to change it to directly influence the quest.If you don't like the MC, then deal with it.
>>36275823Nice assumption asshole.
Jesus now I regret even mentioning the accelerated aging, if I hadn't we wouldn't even have the possibility of a retcon in the cards.
>>36275715>I'd want, like, near-unanimous agreement which doesn't seem to exist.Yep, so it sounds like we're sticking with what we've got and you can subtly handwave the age issues, that sounds like the best option.
>>36275800>after we've been playing alreadyWhat the hell are you on about?It's been three threads and about an hour in game. Literaly nothing has happend besides character introductions.
>>36275850And it's not even going to be a problem because the OP can deal with that so it won't be a problem and will be balanced.
>>36275715Hand wave us as a larger than average 8 year old and leave it at that. fair enough this way and we can keep the racewar to a minimum.
Okay here's the final decision because this is getting silly.No we aren't changing race. It's too significant a change, especially when it's clearly so contentious.Fudging age is not a matter of a bonus or whatever, it's more because I goofed on chiss adolescence, and having MC become physically a teenager almost immediately whilst everyone else is still kids is just awkward.So I'm in agreement with the anons saying we just give no specific age from here on in, or handwave it some other way (MC is a late bloomer, ignore Chiss puberty fluff, whatver). I'll make up my mind by the time we start the next thread, might be a vote, will probably just be "yeah screw it we're fiddling the number a bit".In the mean time, can we be civil?
>>36275865So if this was a quest were we took 40 threads to get through half a day in game you would be perfectly fine with arguing for retconning the character just because not much has happened?
>>36275889Thanks for being sensible and awesome OP
>>36275895But it didn't. It's not that sort of quest at all, it's been two threads.>>36275889> It's too significant a change, especially when it's clearly so contentious.It's hardly much of a change, and there's only one autistic anon even arguing about it.
>>36275889Thank you OP. On another matter have you a decided date for the next game or just going with it whenever?
>>36275863>subtly hadwave>Either turn out MC into an 8 year old or ignore the entire actual biology of the race were playing.Where are all those "We're Chiss because I wanted to be a Chiss" fags now?
>>36275889Great, that one cunt caused us to lose out.
>>36275889I'm happy with that.>>36275931>It's hardly much of a change,The QM himself is telling you its too significant a change and you're trying to argue in his face it's not, when its his quest?
>>36275889So now we're not really even a Chiss.
>>36275889>can we be civil?
>>36275889Sounds like the best solution.>>36275944If you're going to be salty and uncivil about it, the doors that way.
>>36275889Here's hoping CCr thanks for running. Any quest that has a following will get these eventually, a good Qm can handle them a bad Qm ends up losing half or more his readership. I think you made a good call. Who knew people would be so pissed off over a blueberry or strawberry discussion?
>>36275889>ignore Chiss pubertySo we're playing some sort of Chiss looking alien that's not actually a Chiss?Whatever.
>>36275959Yeah we are, it's just making it so that we don't gain a massive advantage because we age through puberty slightly faster, it's just readjusting the relative scale of the acolytes development a little, doesn't remove our chissness
>>36275959>>36275980You can stop samefagging now...>>36275937Anon, the age issue is not that big a deal, it's not been stated in character how old we are concretely to a set standard and scale, and this is just nudging it to avoid a balance issue, and not rewriting the entire character.
>People arguing for Chiss>Arguments revolve around WE WANT TO BE CHISS & YOU METAGAMERS>Neither prove to be true>Not even playing a true ChissWow.
Why not just settle with this?>How about not actually mentioning a concrete number and just going by 'human like standard', let the QM handwaive/manage things in the background, it's not going to be that important.
>>36276003>we age through puberty slightly fasterwe age through puberty RIDICULOUSLY faster>>36275980>>36275959>>36275937Giving the negative reaction i doubt the OP will go with that particular solution, rather than just handwaving the exact numbers to a result of "it's not a big deal"
>>36275973>I think you made a good call.So do I, seems like CCr has a good head on his shoulders.Thanks for being great OP
>>36276044if we're going to be playing a Chiss then lets lie in our fucking bed and do it. Otherwise there's no point in playing a fucking Chiss.
>>36276036So somehow not mentioning the age we are and winding it back a tiny bit behind the screens suddenly makes us an entirely different race?Stop samefagging already, it's blatantly obvious and pathetic.
>>36276073It's funny, because that's how I felt about all of your posts.
>>36275889TRANSLATIONAL: I don't know enough about Star Wars to ban certain races from my Sith Hogwarts quest"
>>36276065Thank you!Is this so fucking hard to understand?
>>36276065Fucking this. Seriously.
>>36276087>all of your postsmy one post where I said I vote to stay Chiss?>>36276065>>36276096I don't see why not, but if people and the OP think it will cause problems then he can go with >>36276038
>>36276120>but if people and the OP think it will cause problems then he can go with >>36276038If we're going to be playing a Chiss then we're playing a Chiss. Lets stop fucking about with this already. Either we're a Chiss, or a Zeltron, or something else. We're not some weird mixture.
>>36276091If you're going to be like that then just leave and go shitpost in the /qtg/ already.
This has very much spiralled out of hand, and I had such high hopes given how unexpectedly well it'd been going so far. Then again that was one thread, maybe I was too optimistic.Basically this is one tiny issue that's been turned into a platform for arguing something else entirely. In all honesty, I didn't realise it was a thing, and I imagine most of you didn't either. It was always my intention for the acolytes to be the same age and maturity for the most part, give or take females starting and finishing puberty earlier and such. Part of me wants to change nothing and see what happens, part of me wants to make a small change to make things simpler. None of me wants to listen to (or read, you know) you guys argue over the essential chiss-ness of age or why being a zeltron is so much better.Given how strongly you guys seem to feel about this, a vote seems very likely. If ignoring fluff offends too many, we won't do that. If dialing back the age offends too many, we don't do that. If we have to deal with turbo-puberty right away, I guess we just have to. But we're not changing race.
In the first thread, OP was just like "hey, you're a ten year old Chiss" so aging us down simply means that everything is as it should be, not that we are playing pseudo-chiss or some other race.
>>36276145>We're not some weird mixture.I'm not seeing how you think that not saying a concrete number for our age currently is resulting in us being some weird hybrid race.
>>36276145I don't think anyone's even actually arguing in favor of 'completely ignore chiss aging' except as 'a fine whatever, anything to stop this damn argument.'
>>36276176Lets go with Turbo-Puberty. After all, I think in the first thread our later-body was going to be really short anyway right? Should be fine.
>>36276176>a vote seems very likelyDude, just don't, it's like >>36276184 said, and a vote is just asking for more trouble.
>>36276176At this point I think a vote will cause more bad blood than anything else, make an executive decision for however you want the quest you're running to work
>>36276176Nah don't worry about it OP, people will calm down after this is all over with, I trust you to handle it well behind the scenes so we don't need a vote.
>>36276176I'd prefer to keep the aging.>>36276208Has the right idea.>>36276184>so aging us down simply means that everything is as it should be,How does that make any sense? Ten human years old, not ten Chiss years old.
>>36276208I'll second this guy's sentiments.
>>36276145We'll be playing an 8 year old Chiss so we don't break the game. i.E. we hit 20 when they hit 16. >>36276176Yeah we argue about weird things here at TG, we'll figure it out eventually. Or just age us back saying we're a bigger than average 8 year old who doesn't get much out of adolescence. Sometimes a vote only ends in heartache. Fair warning.
>>36276271>We'll be playing an 8 year old Chiss so we don't break the game. i.E. we hit 20 when they hit 16.We're playing a Chiss. Lets be a fucking Chiss.
>>36276176What >>36276236 said, I'm happy with whatever you choose CCr, just got to let peoples heads cool down a little.
>>36276288How would that not be a Chiss?
>>36276323Because we're 10. Not 8. Lets stop with this retcon shit
>>36276338>a ten year old Chiss is a Chiss>a eight year old Chiss is not a ChissI'm not arguing against your point, but I'm just confused at how you've come to this, I'm all for moving on and not changing anything, but this line of thinking is just weird
>>36276271>We'll be playing an 8 year old Chiss so we don't break the game. i.E. we hit 20 when they hit 16.Actually i'm pretty sure that's exactly what eight year old chriss would result in, it's just ten year old chiss would mean we hit twenty when they hit FOURTEEN.Personally I like the idea of a starting physical disadvantage that later turns into a physically advantage, it sounds fun BUT I will put up with whatever OP goes with.
>>36276338Do we either end up breaking all the physical challenges and have them all gang up on us or get boosted through the classes to people we don't know and have years more experience than us? Great way to end up ganked. But whatever have faith in the Qm.
I think we should chamge to a wookiee.
>>36276382Han shot first.
>>36276382No, we need to all be punished equally: make us a hutt.
>>36276236Pretty much this OP.I enjoyed the quest, you go with it where you think it should go."In collaboration with" doesn't mean "bending over backwards for".
>>36276176It may be for the better if you just make a decision about this and run with it. Your word is law after all in this quest and will end this argument once and for all.

>>36276461>a retarded GunganBut you repeat yourself
>>36276461A blind retarded gungan with one hand and no legs.
Think about it this way: in universe, a Chiss Sith acolyte would be sent to Korriban earlier in life than a human so that they would not develop sooner than other acolytes.CC, when he created this quest, wanted us to be on the same level as other acolytes physically and mentally. We are a Chiss only for the social implications and history of our father. This is shown in Moriana's surprise that we are being trained as an acolyte. This is what being Chiss is meant to do in this quest, not age us up or make us physically superior.This is why I think we should just age our character down to 8 years old. It preserves the intended characteristics while removing the unintentional consequences of having a Chiss character.

>>36276484>This is why I think we should just age our character down to 8 years old.I think he should do that to, but not put any concrete numbers down and just say 'you are all at the equivalent age of development in your lives'
>>36276489WEE ARRRHH THE CHOSSSEN WAAAN

>>36276591Now I want us to come across a blind one handed retarded gungan in our travels in this quest.
>>36276591>>36276621Odds are he's our first "interrogation" or target.

Still here, boggling vacantly at these shenanigans. And also reassembling my bed I took everything off it earlier.Full disclosure my plan was always to gloss over a lot of the early years, with major scenes played out and the rest done as general trends in how we train and interact. So the age thing will come into play, but it won't be as significant as it could be. In all honesty it didn't occur to me when we decided on race, I figured that Chiss, as near-humans, would be a cultural and cosmetic choice rather than a physical one.So here's the verdict, we won't change anything and we'll see what happens. If being bigger makes you threatening briefly, you'll have to find ways to deal with it. And a blind, one-handed gungan may just appear if you're good.
>>36276810Fair enough. Thanks for running CCr.
And remember, we're all here to have fun, so put that first.Peace out friends, hope you all enjoy the rest of your evenings and have pleasant nights.
>>36276810>And a blind, one-handed gungan may just appear if you're good.hehehehe>>36276901thanks for being a bro OP and thanks for running, see you in the next thread
