With DWRP gone, where will we go from here?

I mean, it seems like with the banning of one guy, we've lost all the fun in this RPG. I'm willing to stay here and see it go further, but how in the world can a series of allies, one neutral, and one black market faction make war on eachother?


I think we need to recruit another faction or something...and literally assign them to war. Don't look at the Crynak though. We're a gang, not a senate party. Joke

You seem neutral, as you're not attack the Imperials.

Let's summarize what my question was...exactly what are we supposed to fight against on this RPG?

This RPG has been construed with war since its foundation, with the DRWP gone there will be a peace upon the game until another faction is born or one of the current factions decides that they want what another has.

Ok, so I guess we wait until someone starts a war.

I hereby proclaim war on the Ewoks for extreme fuzziness! Joke

True, but it doesn't have to be factional war. Have your character mugged on the street and go on a blood quest for vengeance. THAT's interesting and I just thought of it in a couple of seconds. It doesn't have to be Imp's versus Reb's all the time. In fact, Lucas has the Rebellion win, then Thrawn takes command of the remaining loyal Imperials, and then a looooooong time later they make peace and fight against something from some other galaxy. (That was very general, and may be incorrect on facts, but you get the point)

Well, all I'm saying is we don't need constant war and action to make this RPG great. If you ask me, the story and characters come first and foremost and the action is just the whipped topping. Using one of the SW films themselves as an example - The Empire Strikes Back. Hardly any action in that one at all aside from Hoth, the asteroid chase and the climax on Cloud City. The story and character development truely carries that film.

Just think of what we could do with this game if we took the time to really develop the wide range of characters we have present and turning it into an awesome story. Now, I'm not saying don't have no action or wars at all, of course we still should have them. Just not constant, mindless chaos.

EDIT: You stuck a reply in on me, Ravik. Joke Anyway, I think you bring up some great points as well.

Well Mrs. Solo,

You don't want to know what we fighter pilots do for "social interaction" when there's no war.


Either we're layin' more pipe than Coruscant plumbing, or we're dismantling marines in barfights.

And who says you can't? I never remember reading in the rules that you can't be a criminal. Just keep in mind there are laws...

A criminal he says...

That's just a waste of time. Why in the world would someone come on an RPG, to play the petty role of criminal? Just stay at home and play with GI Joes. Rolling Eyes

I'd prefer the term brawler. Laughing

There are different types of criminals. There are the "petty" ones as you call them, then there are the upper echelon types like Jabba the Hutt.

I agree with Swali, I already have a whole situation planned out, for some character development. Espicially dealing with Exar Kun's past.

Yes, "the love story of Swali, and Mara Jade: Love at first blaster bolt" Joke

But, yes I have come across this question many times in the past; we get so far steeped in this game that we combine OOC, and IC, to make long lasting hatred of one another. Paranoia results, we all find ourselves attacking one another, and we need up sending the RPG into a swirling mess of chaos. It is up to us all to make this game fair, I see that now. We must all find in ourselves the way to make our own objectives in this game coexist with others. This will keep this game fun, not total annihilation of another person, or faction.
