Hey all,

We now know that the new timeline will be set after the events of Rise of Skywalker. Given that we know a little about the galaxy after the film much of what the admins are going to give us as for the state of the galaxy, factions and commonly known events remains a mystery. However in this thread none of that concerns us as we'll simply be discussing character ideas. A conversation I love to have with others as we can just share ideas, character arcs or personalities and see what sticks.

Down below, if you feel so inclined, share any character ideas for the new timeline. Somebody you'd find interesting to play out or maybe poke at the others on the Site for feedback. Wether that be the grizzled bounty hunter, a naive Jedi, a loyal soldier or preppy aristocrat the possibilities are endless.

Here is the place to hash out ideas.

Renegade Mandalorian for the right reasons. Drifts around for the lack of responsibility while looking for some leads on someone from his past to set the record straight with a few others from his tribe.

I was considering creating a society where, over many years ("many years" is quite intense considering the time between Fires of Rebellion and post-TROS), certain groups of Deucalians and Mandalorians who had come upon the same planet in Wild Space ultimately mish and mash together to form a new society, isolated from everyone and everywhere else. In the would be present time, these people are able to venture from their planet to the galaxy proper because reasons.

So it's like one scenario of what would happen if Deucalians and Mandalorians merged together. Certainly not unheard of on site lore but I wanted to experiment with it. All in all, my internal efforts concluded to a complete ripoff of The 100, which isn't terribly shabby given that we're all kinda roleplaying one giant ripoff to begin with, so hmm.

YOU ARE WONKRU OR YOU ARE THE ENEMY OF WONKRU. CHOOSE.

Considering how dead the deculalas were this TL I think it might be best to just let them die. 6000 years is hard to survive for a few hundred inactive folk. Logically they would have died out, like many cultures do.

Hence a new society that came about from the merging of Deucalians and Mandalorians over many years after they came upon the same planet a long, long time ago. Maybe this happened during the 'golden age' of the Deucalians or something under Korvo's more recent write-up, as the Deucalians do ultimately wane. In present time, neither group is as identifiable in this new location, because a new group came out of the two.

Honestly, 6000 years is a long time for just about anything Star Wars. Many planets and cultures and peoples and technology levels seem to be just about the same if kinda different over thousands and thousands of years. I bet those Twi'leks on Ryloth are still the same Twi'leks today as they were 6000 years ago lol

Main character:
  • Lightside Force User that is interested in the legends of the force and all things ancient.
Secondary Character Ideas:
  • Nar Shaddaa Landspeeder Taxi Driver, loner that hates the smuggler's moon, yet does nothing to leave.
  • A Kyber Jeweler / Stolen artifact seller, and a gambling addict.
  • Droid: Standard Protocol Droid or Astromech (something like C-3PO or R2).
  • Zeltron Smuggler, something dealing with amnesia and putting their life back together.

I'm honestly curious what'll happen with the Mandalorians in general for the timeline and what the write-ups have in store for them. Will they still be a broken, scattered people, like we see in the Mandalorian? Will they be restored to the warrior civilisation of old, or will they still be reeling from the purge, and how will that impact their culture, belief, ways and attitudes in the galaxy?

At this stage I'm working on two characters that'll largely travel together wherever possible, but also do independant, seperate stories as well once I've gotten a feel for writing again. My 'main' will be an elderly Jedi whose best adventuring days are behind her, swept up by fate to teach my secondary character, a young Force witch how to resist the temptation of the Dark Side.

Course, there's more to it than that, but I'm waiting until the timeline goes live before I finalise anything. :P

I'm thinking a young, naive Jedi who is interested in the Dark side at his own peril.

I've got a few concepts in the works, a chatty Twi'lek salvager who gets in over her head with someone or some group, a Kubaz office-drone turned information broker, a space-case of a Gand Findsman, an Ubese mercenary (or pirate) who loves to go killin' again, and a Rodian bounty huntress with a very, very troubled past.

I've only got two characters in the pot right now. I have no idea how the Jedi will work next TL, so while I have a Jedi planned, I'm taking the admin team's advice and holding off on that for the time being. However, I do have a Bounty Hunter lined up, if anyone is interested in doing some BHG stuff. Basically, Fallen Order and the Mandalorian have inspired me lol

The Mandalorian was a much needed breath of fresh air. The music alone inspires me. I’m halfway through Fallen Order, also a good slice of Star Wars.

I’m kinda running on empty as far as character concepts go, but I do have a Mandalorian bounty hunter from a previous timeline who I never quite used, so I may end up just copy-pasting him even if I have to name-change. I’d be down to chew the chud with you if and when the occasion calls for it!

Total space western vibes from The Mandalorian by the way. It’s hard to resist not roleplaying those aspects no matter how many rpers already might be planning to but let’s kick the dust pardner as all get out and get gaited if’n I reckon YEEHAW

I might bring back an old character I used to write. He was the Space Cowboy type. If there's any type of Law Enforcement agency in the next timeline id consider it.
