If "Seeking threads" works, I'll try it too

Hi. If you're reading this, then it's very likely that I'd like to make a thread with you ;-) That is, unless you're interested in killing off the characters below (it'd be way too soon). Basically, I'm looking to make more acquaintances in RP, and hopefully, to take the characters' stories somewhere as a result.

Kel Dryden—a typical aspiring scoundrel type: pilot, driver, fighter, gambler. Already approved and plot-ready. In Kel's own words, he flies one of the best ships in the Outer Rim: the Black Swift. So, if you'd like to charter a fast and stylish ship for a mission, he's your guy. Latent Force-sensitivity is an added bonus for Jedi/Sith. But it won't get in the way of a typical "scoundrel experience", unless you bring it up. His alignment is True Neutral.

Ideas

1. (very specific) You've chartered the Black Swift for a ride off Nar Shaddaa or some mission. You expect the pilot in a guarded hangar. But instead of Kel, a load of spice arrives, followed by some hostile mercs. Kel rushes to the scene shortly afterwards, accompanied by a sarcastic murder-bot. The whole company has to escape Nar Shaddaa and decide on the next move. What happens next is anyone's guess...

2. Kel is looking to outfit his ship with fusial afterburner and military-grade maneuvering jets, to make it the best it could be. A freighter race could give Kel a good incentive to set it up somehow. Maybe you'd like to race, play Pazaak inbetween, etc. Yeah, speaking of Pazaak, Kel is a gambler, so that's always an option too.

3. You need a ship, a pilot, or a gun for hire. Maybe you're a Sith travelling around the galaxy in search of artifacts and sowing chaos. Or a Jedi trying to remain inconspicuous in Hutt space. Or a fellow member of the 5 Syndicates looking to make some quick creds. I know that there's at least one plot in the works that Kel could be a part of.​

Nykoria "Kori" Tallis—a somewhat reclusive Jedi Knight. Once outgoing and full of life, she now tries to keep people at a distance, against her own wishes. Prolonged stay on Ajan Kloss has made her a "by the book" Lawful Good Jedi. But if she were to be exposed to the turbulent galaxy (Nar Shaddaa, for example), she'd end up... something else. Probably more on the Chaotic side.

P.S. And while I was writing this post, she has become approved and plot-ready as well. I don't have any detailed ideas yet. But figuring out her backstory and personal struggles was fun. With her approved, I think she can get involved in more threads.​

Sorry about a wall of text. I guess what I'm looking for is more people and characters to meet. Maybe it could take my or your character's story in a different direction, one that wasn't expected at all.

My Sith Eternal, Korsak, is also strongly psychometric and loves meeting knew people with the same ability. Granted he's lied about who he is and what he does to half the Jedi he's ever met, but why should that stop anyone?

I've been looking for someone for my droid BD-9 to work alongside with since my previous partner had left SWRP. He has been hanging out on Ajan Kloss lately, so partnering with Nykoria would make sense.

Wow, that was quick! Thank you for your interest. I'll figure out a way to get everyone who posted here involved, in one thread or separate ones. So far, I'm seeing a way to do it in one thread. But it's a bit late here right now, so I'll need about 24 to 48 hours to iron out the details and set it up.

And of course, I'll be keeping an eye on this thread as well. Unless something happens, I'll figure out a way to thread with everyone who posts here ;)

@The Captain, @Lavi, @Charndley, I think I've got something for all our characters.



Another set of ancient ruins has recently been discovered on Ontotho, drawing the attention of @Korsak Wulpez. Unfortunately for the Amaran, the local villagers have already tried looting it, and a few of them have never returned. This mishap draws the attention of the Jedi Order, who dispatch Knight @Nara Allam to investigate.

The Masters also send the usually-reclusive Knight @Nykoria Tallis for this mission. Kori brings along @BD 9, a droid that has recently stumbled across the Zeltron in her place of refuge and decided to stick around. The purpose of sending Kori is two-fold: she is to pilot Nara to the destination and back her up. But more importantly, it might help Kori overcome her reclusion somewhat.

Inside the ruins, one would discover all kinds of assorted dangers (some more surprising that others), the missing villagers (dead or alive), and evidence that some Force-sensitives of old had been to the ruins before...


There, I think that's about it. Hopefully, this isn't too cliche. If you'd like, the outcome of this thread could tie into whatever plot you might have for your character. Perhaps a clue that would lead you to a location where you'd find a holocron or artifact (in a separate thread).

If all of you are ok with it, I'll set it up within 24 hours.

This all looks good, do you want to start or should I?

@The Captain, if you're up for it, I'd appreciate it!
If not, I'll be able to set it up myself in around 20 hours).
The same goes for my reply schedule.

Sorry for the late reply, but if possible may I join? I know Kegari isn’t officially a Jedi yet.

@Thluna, I'm terribly sorry for missing this message. I missed the alert about your post (or it never came up), so I've only checked this thread just now. It's probably too late for Kegari to join Legends of the Hidden Temple. And personally, I think that the thread right now has the perfect number of people.

But my offer from above still stands:
I'll figure out a way to thread with everyone who posts here.
So, even though that particular thread doesn't seem to have room for people, Kel and Kori still have room for a thread or two ;) That's if you're interested, of course.
