TL;DR: if you'd be interested in doing a big, cool death-disabled battle thing then post in this thread to let me know.

Wordy explanation: So with the Sith Empire announced and a growing military force at their disposal, I think it would be fun to do a large battle. It would be open to anyone and use a very truncated version of the PvP rules (below). It'd be more about writing a cool story, having fun, and doing epic stuff than focusing on competitive nitty-gritty PvP.

I want to make this big and epic, but I'm not sure if there's enough interest so I thought I'd put this up as a gauge. It'd be open to pretty much anyone who can justify being there: mercenaries, Sith, Jedi, Republic sympathizers, Republic haters, Jedi haters, Sith haters, etc. If you're interested in doing this, please post here to let me know!

1. No godmodding (controlling other people’s characters)
2. No metagaming (using OOC knowledge for IC advantage)
3. No autohitting (writing an attack as if it has already landed). All attacks should be written as an attempt with the intended outcome explained
4. No attacking in your opening post
5. No OOC lying
6. State your equipment in your opening post or on your character sheet before entering combat
7. Explicitly address all attacks. Failing to do so will result in the attack being an automatic hit
8. Take fair damage. Your character will not always block/avoid/dodge all damage
9. Collaborate to make a good story rather than focusing on winning
10. Don’t exploit vagueness. Ask for clarification

Coming back I had decided I wanted zero part of PvP. That's part of Swerp that made me frustrated and part of why I left for so long. Because it should just be about writing awesome stories together, not nitpicking posts apart until we all wanna throat punch someone.

So, as long as the thread continues in the spirit that you have outlined @Phoenix , you can count me in.

Would throw one of my chars in for a pvp/cpvp-esque deal :) Every timeline needs a big battle!

I'd be up for it! I'll have to either write up a character or petition to play NPCs (random background noise?) for funsies. I love playing as the grunts that go 'bewm'!

put me down as interested.
also interested! sith side, ofc
Consider me interested. Dunno which side.
I'm in, sith side
I'm in, would prefer Sith but I also have a mando merc if needed.
Yo count me in. Hmmm I guess I'll be jedi side with Jago
dude, yes.
I'm interested. This sounds like exactly why @Nykoria Tallis is doing her thing, and could be a good opportunity for character and story development.
I'm in as a sith hater with @Lorcan
Interested. I might bring in my Mando who would likely be hired by the Free World Alliance/Republic for this fight. @Minerva Fhirdiad
You know what. I'm all in. Pending Event thingamajig, I'm dragging in @Vera Coulter for a versus Sith encounter. If she ain't about, I'll toss in a merry @Dr Ilana Morata instead.

I am in with either my sith or with my muscle for hire

This is awesome! I'm going to try to get the thread up later today, but it's still open if other people want to join.

Note that there won't be a posting order or anything, which is why a lot of the "lock in" rules aren't going to be a thing, but don't be going back multiple rounds to argue things after the fact. Though, if you're doing that, you're probably not complying with the spirit of the thread anyway
