After spending the day looking up different fan-creations such as fan-art, fan-fiction, and fan-edits, I rediscovered a website called Secret Cinema, a company that essentially hosts a film screening plus reenactment/LARPing experience, like what people used to do with Rocky Horror Picture Show but on a larger scale. They had one such experience for Empire Strikes Back in the summer of 2015, which I tried to get tickets for but unfortunately it was taking place in England. This slowly sparked an idea that culminated about 10 minutes ago. Let's reenact A New Hope! Or semi-reenact, with current timeline characters, factions, and tech. Now the roleplay will take place about 20 years from the current timeline, so take that into account involving your characters. Also, this while re-enactment is slightly affected by the main story, it separates from the main story around the recent Battle of Coruscant. Time for tags! @Malon I need somebody to fill the Vader/Emperor's apprentice role, and was thinking Kelan Nomar/Malon would be perfect! @Prudence Would you be interested in your character Kira Elan being... THE EMPEROR! Now, unfortunately, the roles of the Grand Moff, Smuggler, Jedi Master have been filled. Sign Ups are located here! Now let's get into the story!

A NEW HOPE

After the Battle of Coruscant, the Sith Brotherhood, emboldened by their victory and with help from the Mandolorian Dominion and the Desilijic Crime Family, attack Kuat and Thyferra, conquering both planets. From there, the Sith lead their entire fleet to battle on Chandrilla. The Sith won the battle, capturing many senators and high ranking officials, who were then executed live on the HoloNet, scaring much of the Republic into surrendering, with little resistance except from the Jedi, small rebel cells, and the Accord. To combat the Jedi, the Sith issued bounties for the death of any Jedi, offering obscene amounts of money for even a Jedi Order Padawan or Jedi Army Initiate.

The Jedi soon greatly decreased in number when the Sith took a more active role in the quest to destroy the Jedi, to the point where most went into hiding far away from the Core and Sith Space. Some went to the Unknown Regions, others Wildspace, and a small few left the Galaxy entirely, hoping to find a safe haven from the Sith. With the Jedi out of the way, the Great Empire was then founded, and having absorbed the Republic fleet, the Empire then focused on destroying the Accord and wiped away any resistance with semi-reasonable ease.

With the Old Republic fallen, the Jedi nearly extinct, and the Accord fractured, the newly appointed Emperor staged a hostile takeover of the Sith using the full might of the Empire's Army, which resulted in killing of all the members of the Lords of the Sith and any force sensitive member of the Sacred Band of Ziost, save for one of his/her choice, whom he/she made their apprentice. The Sacred Band of Ziost was made the Emperor and the his/her apprentice's personal military strike force.

It is now twenty years after the Battle of Coruscant, and the might of the Great Empire has spread, though rebellion is brewing, with rebels cells from all over the galaxy having come together to form the Union To Restore The Old Republic, otherwise known as the Rebel Union or Rebels. The Rebels have received information that prior to the birth of the Great Empire a Scared Band of Ziost member had formulated the plans for a superweapon, which the Empire is currently constructing. The Rebels have since stolen these plans, and have found a weakness in the superweapon, and have sent a female Senator to locate a former Jedi Master to help the Rebels restore freedom to the galaxy....

I'd be down to get in on this with Ni, maybe as the Han Solo character. She can use the Force but hopefully that wouldn't be a problem.

@Retroboy Eh... I don't know... What about Ram? A few tweaks to fit the timeskip and she'd be perfect.

@Cameron Foster Do you mean the Vader role or the Luke role, cause I already have someone in mind for the Vader role. If you want to play the Luke role, you'd have to make a new character (given the timeskip).

Maybe have it so that the Accord being practically destroyed makes her personality more in line with that of Han Solo's in A New Hope. More of a character who'd work for criminals, shoot first, and have an inner struggle about whether she should stay and help the Rebels.

Oh... @Cameron Foster, of course you can still join. I'll put you down for the Luke-Esq character, but if anything changes involving the Vader character, you'll be the first person I offer it to.
