I'm thinking of basing the rp around the new Jedi Order and possibly the new Sith Council, depending on how many people are interested in being evil. Of course, you will have a chance to enter characters who don't have Force powers. After all, the majority of people don't have a usable gift!
This is going to be an AU TCP rp based solely on the movies and disregarding the books entirely. ^^; Even if you haven't seen all the movies, so long as you have a basic grasp of the universe it'll be fine, since it's taking place a few years after the last movie.
Here's something of a backstory:
~5 years after the Emperor is destroyed~
The new Jedi Order has a small group of seperate temples, each hidden from all since the new Jedi have a reasonable paranoia spawning from the tragic and horrifying destruction of the original Order. Still, the Jedi could not be allowed to die out completely and so the first school was founded after the Emperor's death by a few of the Jedi who escaped the slaughter of Revenge of the Sith and their students. Their ranks are slowly growing within each school, and the 5 coucil members who run each part of the new Order meet every few months at different locations to discuss the growing strength of their movement, since it was agreed that no council should know the location of all the schools; each member elects one member who knows not just of their school, but of one other school so that all can be kept informed in the event of an emergency.
Unfortunately, the Dark Side has not been silent. Although their ranks died out, the Sith would be around for as long as the Jedi, and a few who were trained at the schools were kicked out after it was discovered that they were dabbling in the Dark Side. They have no knowledge of where exactly the schools are, but some have managed to find each other and form the new Sith Council. They seek pupils to induct as avidly as the Jedi do, so their numbers are growing as well, if a bit more slowly. Soon the Jedi may just have another battle on their hands....
So, if you're interested in joining, there are a few things that will need to be known for everyone else participating, so I've come up with a short and simple form for interested parties!
Side(Jedi/Sith/Neutral): (Also include your level if you're a Jedi or Sith. The levels are youngling, advanced youngling(new to the new Order; it's for those inductees who were taken in after the age of 3), padawans, Knights and Masters. For info on most of these levels, see the Jedi ranks section of this page.)
Lightsaber color: (This is for Jedi/Sith only, and for Jedi the colors are blue/green, and Sith have the options of red and yellow. Any other colors need to be run by me for approval, and very few will be allowed. ^^ Sorry guys.)
Occupation(if not J/S):
(I'm leaving personality up to you people. If you want to put it in, feel free, but it's not required. I'm sure that we'll catch on as things go along! ^^)
I would like to request that you carefully consider your character before posting, and try not to make everyone like Yoda or Mace Windu. Be warned that if I don't approve of something in your character- it isn't likely to happen, but I may as well put in a disclaimer now, before something happens- you'll have to fix it before you begin rping. I don't have many rules, especially not ones I seriously enforce, so please respect the ones I do put up.
This post will be updated as the rp goes on to let people know what kind of characters are needed at the moment, what kind are forbidden to be entered because of an abundance- i.e. super beautiful and powerful female Sith Knights/padawans-, and with major story updates, so keep an eye on this! ^_^
