Hello! This game is half role-playing, have mafia-like NP actions intended to make you one of the winners of the game. The Day Phases will be more important to the story and role-playing elements of the game, and the Night Phases will be more important for gameplay. Feel free to post on the DPs, but keep in mind: all official gameplay occurs in the NP, not the DP.

With that established, I will do two things in this DP: (1) give some background into the story's premise, (2) give some basic bios on the various characters. This information is key to effective role-playing. Also, due to the addition of a ton of new players and to some players not joining my game, I will not be using Mikal's storyline in this game, but I will, as much as possible, use the old character bios for existing players.

1. BACKGROUND

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

The Republic is in shock. The long-time Senator from Chandrila was shot and killed not two weeks ago while speaking to supporters and a rally on Coruscant. The boldness of the attack surprised and scared the populace and other Senators. A rumor of an unknown assailant stalking the streets looking for vengeance against the Senate is being told in whispered voice throughout the dark allies and shady Cantinas of the planet. Paranoia abounds, and Senators especially are afraid to go out into public.

On Chandrila, the news has sparked not only great sadness, but great avarice. Two prominent denizens of the planet, local Planetary Governor, Pots Geek, and local socialite and member of a powerful political dynasty, Bev Romni, have both declared that they will run in the special election to replace the fallen Senator. The Jedi have dispatched High Councilmember NightCats to Chandrila to ensure that the candidates remain safe, and to ensure fair-play.

On the other side of the galaxy, on Nar Shadaa, Black Sun Vigo Srehtiw has become embroiled in a turf war with the Bounty Hunter's Guild. The Hutts, who were trying to play both faction off each other, have lost control of the situation. They have appealed to the Republic and the Jedi for military assistance, in order to reestablish Hutt control over the moon. The Chancellor has deployed a contingent of forces under the command of Lt. Gen. (3 Stars) Tyler Graham to meet the Hutts' plea. The Jedi have yet to make public what their response to this crisis will be--if they intend to respond at all.

In fact, the Jedi are far more concerned about reports from Corellia that a Master and his padawan were murdered by someone wielding a red lightsaber. Have the Sith returned, or is this merely rumor...

II. CHARACTER BIOS

Yay

Yay is an elderly Weapons Dealer. He was orphaned as a young child, but a life on the streets made him cunning and calculating--though not trusting. He has a soft voice which belies his willingness to use force to succeed. And, despite his age, he is both youthful in appearance and physically spry. He dresses in an unassuming manner, and to look at him you would never guess he is the biggest arms and munitions dealer in Hutt Space. His business has both legal and illegal interests, and he lives in a fortress on Nar Kaaga.

Tyler

Tyler was raised on Coruscant by his father, a Senior Aide to the Senator for Iridonia. His father always taught him to be proud of Zabrak culture, and kept him well informed on the current events of Iridonia. Tyler of becoming a pilot since he was very young, and trained throughout his childhood years to become the best pilot he could be. He graduated top of his class at the Coruscant Space Ship Command Academy. After serving for 6 years in the military, Tyler left the military and joined the Iridonian defense fleet where he was given a Captain's commission, and his own frigate to command. After 4 years of distinguished service, the military, eager to coax him back into their service, offered him a commission as a Colonel in a newly formed Space-and-Terrestrial Combined Forces Unit (STCFU.) Tyler accepted. In two more years, he spearheaded an incredibly successful assault on a Black Sun compound in Cato Neimodia, and was rewarded a Generalship. Ever since then, he has been rising up the ranks, and is ambitious to continue doing so.

Mikal

Mikal was born in the spice mines of Kessel. He suffered a brutal existence, and, only 12 years old, in an act of sheer rage murdered several of his captors and was forced to flee. After making an escape from the mines, he made my way to Nar Shadaa where he worked with the Black Sun (under Srehtiw) as a low-level grunt for 3 years. At 15, he left Black Sun employ, and tried to throw in with the rival Bounty Hunter's Guild, but he was abducted by a Shistavanen mercenary who, over the next 5 years, taught him the arts of killing and deceit. Mikal killed him, and took over his business interests shortly thereafter. He is renowned in Hutt Space, where I have a 100% success rate. He refuses to join the Bounty Hunter's Guild now, despite being threatened, and remains a free agent. Little is know of his life in the two years directly succeeding the murder of his Shistavanen mentor, accept that he carried out the business instead.

Pots

Pots is a physically attractive Human Politician brought up on his home planet, Chandrila, where a delicate balance with nature is maintained and farming is the way of the people. This taught him to care for diversity and nature. He grew up poor, working on his father's farm during the day and engrossed in books at night. Sometime during his teenage years he began to attend town councils in the village, and discovered a passion for politics and debate. At twenty, he had been elected to the regional council. From there he ran for Chief Ombudsman of Chandrila, and lost in a close election. This race, though, got him planet-wide attention, allowing him to make a successful bid for Planetary Governor. He is 31, and halfway into his second year as Governor. He has high approval ratings and is known locally for his sympathy to the underdog, something exceptionally rare on Chandrila. He have a ruthless style of debate and is easily worked up over things he feel passionate about. He is ambitious; my eyes are set on the galactic senate, and has been constantly preparing for Coruscant.

Bev

Bev descends from a powerful political family. She is closely related to the Royal Family of Serenno and is a Countess by right of birth. She is independently wealthy, far more so than Pots. He father served in the Senate for one term as Senator for Serenno, before dying in a speeder accident. Shortly thereafter, her mother, a native-born Chandrilan whose parents had both served in planet-wide or galactic offices, was elected as Senator for Chandrila and served for a long time. She stepped down some time ago due to ill-health and wanting to spend time with family. Bev has served as Mayor of the second largest city on Chandrila, and has done a passable job in the role. However, she is idealistic, sheltered, and spoiled--she relies heavily on her aides, including Antidoter. Her family is well-liked on Chandrila, but her popularity ratings hover between 40-45%. She is 29 years old.

TheDebateKid

T.D.K. was a child prodigy. His father, who was severly wounded in battle, inspired him to learn the art of medicine at an incredibly early age. He attended the most prestigious schools later in life, and specializes in Xenobiology and Xenobiological Medicine. He is an adviser to the Supreme Chancellor on matters of health and wellness, and currently lives on Chandrila, where he studies, writes about, and practices medicine. He is currently fascinated by the notion of the "Force" and is looking into a way of explaining it and medichlorians from a scientific perspective, instead of the Jedi's "hokey religion." He has a strong sense of ethics.

II. CHARACTER BIOS CONT'D

Buddamoose

Buddamoose left his homeworld of Glee Anselm at an early age. He hired out transport to take him to Kiffex, but ended up staying aboard as a crewman, where he learned to art of piloting from a grumpy old codger of a pilot. He is extraordinarily tall and burley for a Nautolan, and uses this physical appearance to his advantage when interacting with other pilots and smugglers (as well as customers.) He is known for being great at his job and at avoiding the authorities, and he also known for his penchant for prostitutes. He is not cheap, and uses his fast, sleek, and modern ship to charge his customers more than he's worth. Sadly, his finances are in a wreck because he spends it all on death sticks and girls. His most recent job was smuggling salt to the Arcona.

NightCats

Jedi Master NightCats is the most recent member of the Jedi High Council. As a Wookiee, he is extremely physically powerful, making him one of the foremost duelists in the order. His force abilities could be more powerful--for example, it is nearly impossible for him to move physical objects with the force. His force talents lie more in increasing his own reaction times while dueling. He has successfully trained two padawans to knighthood, but currently has none. He is a talented musician with Wookiee instruments, and embraces his species' cultural traditions. He has recently been dispatched to Chandrila to oversee the elections there. He is impatient and eager for action, but has a lucky streak that always seems to save him. He is currently about 40, if you equated it to human years.

TheMohawkNinja

Ninja, as he is known, is the leader of the Bounty Hunter's Guild, a position he assumed after years of ruthless and relentless scheming and backstabbing. He rarely kills others, rather, he manipulates people into killing those he wants dead. Don't let that fool you--he is extremely deadly. As a Clawdite--a shapeshifter--he is able to blend into the background. You won't even sense him before his knife his through your back. He grew up on Anzat, where the Anzati taught him the art of killing--they thought they could use a Clawdite to their advantage once he was trained. The second that Ninja learned that they had raised him only to be their pawn, he murdered them all in their sleep, and feld to Nar Shadaa, where he quickly ascended the ranks of the Guild. Little is known about him, other than the fact that he never forgets a traitor.

Sparkies

Sparkies is the owner and sole proprietor of "Sparkies Junk and Parts," a small junk shop in Nar Shadaa. For twenty years, he has run this shop, despite the dangers of the moon and despite being robbed several times. It is believed that he grew up on the moon, but no one knows for certain--he has become a fixture of life in his area of Nar Shadaa. Somehow, he has been able to remain neutral in the Hutt-Black Sun-Bounty Hunter war, and constantly reminiscing about the "good ole' days" and how "youngin's used to act." He is around 59 years of age, but dresses in such a way that he looks about 10 years older. He is well-liked by most of the people in his community.

Srehtiw

Srehtiw is an human-looking droid who was built for assassination and deception. He served his master, a criminal and drug dealer living on Atzerri, for 33 years. When his master died, Srehtiw now liberated, decided to pursue his function as an assassin. He flew to Nar Shadaa and signed on to the Black Sun. Many cartel members underestimated him because he was a droid, but his high kill ratio put him ahead of most of his colleagues. After those same colleagues tried to kill him because he was making them look bad, he instead murdered all of them. Amazed by his abilities, the Black Sun let him kill the current Vigo, and take over all operations in the southern half of Hutt Space as a Vigo in his own right. He is not ambitious as such, but he does want to fulfill his purpose of killing.

Antidoter

Antidoter is a human from Fonder who lived a life always in second place to his older brother--currently the Lt. Governor of Fondor. This has left him embittered and desperate to succeed to outdo his brother. He went to Chandrila where he was the Aide to Bev's mother, and after she retired, he became to the Aide to the Senator who was just recently assassinated. He is currently Bev's campaign manager and Chief Advisor. He is incredibly ambitious and greedy, but he also has a sense of loyalty to Bev's family and is attracted to Bev. He hope that if Bev wins, he will be able to run for office himself, using her family connections to help him win his race.

Thett

Thett is the performance name of burlesque Twi'lek dancer Kri-da'al. She started out as a slave and dancer for a prominent family on Ryloth before she escaped with the aide of her lover. She left the radar for a few years--most think that she was performing in Hutt Space--but reemerged as the magnate of a huge Strip Club, Cantina, and Casino empire. She now lives ostentatiously in Coruscant's most splendid condos and still gives private performances for some of the galaxies more wealthy individuals. She is only 27 years old, and is currently lobbying in the Chandrilan Senate race to get them to lift a ban on Casinos. She is a known socialite and philanthropist, but is always looking to expand her commercial interests and grow her already enormous fortune.

Solon

Little his known about Solon except that he is a Jawa soldier living on Klatooine in the employ of the Hutts. He guards convoys of droids and parts that are taken across the planet to various depots. He has a family on Tatooine that he provides for, sending money back home every two months. Unfortunately, he makes a pittance, and both he and his family are starving. he is considering flying offworld, possible to Nar Shadaa to find better work.

LtCmdrData

Data is a billionaire Mon Calamari who is self-made. He made his money making ships, and is one of the foremost shipwrights in the galaxy. He currently provides ships to both the Republic military as well as to private users. He makes ships from yachts to capital ships. He has dockyards on Dac/Mon Calamari, Fondor, and Corellia. He currently resides in a private mansion in Corellia, but is looking for a planet to build a forth dockyard to meet increased consumer demand.
