Another thing, I'm currently reading back all your characters bios and the 'previously on OUF Ship Down' and I've noticed that there are no clear rank designations, its makes writing dialogue a little bit tricky.

So another thing I need from you are rank and specialty (if there is a job name then that too).

For example so far that I know of.

Vly - Jedi Master? (Equiv Rank. Commander?)
Carlen - Jedi?
Jeme - Jedi?
Alicia - Specialist (Equiv Rank. Captain)
Tyren -
Mictian -

This is just for story purposes, the OUF is not anal about chain of command, so if your character has something useful to add, then don't wait for someone to give you orders to do so.

As for the landing sequence, its taking a little longer then I thought it would, but I should post the first half or 1/3 by later/soon.

As far as ranks go I was using the rank everyone is currently holding. Vly-Nor is a jedi class. Since Arashi is who I started the forum with Vly-Nor doesn't really have a rank and is not on the roster, but he will probably end up being my main character in game. For the sake of the forums we are only using one account per person, but with the RP we can use alt characters. I have no idea what to use for his rank.

Maybe this is how we can look at it; if I am in game playing Vly and we are grouping up for a quest I am still the Procurator of Justice, but playing Vly so maybe we can say alts would hold our main characters rank (not necessarily positions though). If that makes sense to you all Vly would be a Captain but not the Procurator of Justice.

Also since OUF is not the Jedi Order I didn't plan on giving myself a ranking like Master. But my class will be called jedi so I would call myself a jedi class and my OUF rank is Captain. I have been referring to Carlen as master because he was in the Jedi Order and had obtained the rank.

I find my immersion lost a little when a Jedi Master allows first a blaster in his neck and then a sabre thrown at him.....
LOL if either of these had been tried on Quinlan the results would have been much different.

If the whole point of this is fun and nothing more then do what you like, if however your building on the lore of OUF then I would recommend you tone down the disrespect.

Looking forward to the next installment.

I would definitely like to think we are adding to the OUF lore. As far as how the scenes played out I think Kevlar explained it well. If you see some things we need to change please let us know. I guess I could have done a little coaching with Jeme for throwing his lightsaber since we are on an OUF ship.

Maybe I am biased by how I see Quin and how a military is usually run, pointing a gun at a senior officer is a bit of a no no regardless of the circumstances, likewise throwing a sabre regardless shows a appalling lack of control no one above cadet should be that distracted

How strict should we be? I agree, from a military perspective there would be some serious problems. I guess I didn't see us as being militaristic. Should we make some changes and start treating missions and such this way?

I've always thought of in actual squad mechanics to be rather loose and informal, the way you read that the most elite military units are, the solders and Junior officers are fairly informal and cohesive.

But I guess in overall OUF structure it pays to be a little bit more formal.

As for the Alicia thing, I guess I never really pictured her as directly in the chain of command, more of a on call specialist. Hence why I've never had her give any orders or go around siring everyone.

I am not trying to stifle anything so please don't get me wrong here but looking at it realistically.

Alicia might not be in the chain of command as it stands so perhaps this one does work in that regard, shes not a "yes sir" person that would just not work. Its also possible that she is a little twitchy due to her background.

And it is possible that the Jedi might be so far into a trance that he took the action as outlined.

BUT

Where is the thought, both acted on pure instinct as it is written and force users tend not to do that, while Alicia is not a force user that AI pretty much does the same thing in terms of discipline and concentration.

Just thinking out loud I guess, I like the story and it could really add to the lore of OUF.

I agree with you on this if this were a direct OUF lore RP as compared to a good 'ole fun RP. But, we have yet to decide that.

I don't think your stifling anything. I am glad you are reading and giving your thoughts. It's good to have an outside view. I could add a couple lines to make it all work I think. Considering this would be the first mission for all of us together a superior officer as myself would not necessarily go crazy over some of the actions. Therefore I could add a couple lines to say "hey don't forget we are working together", or "we are on the same team here so be mindful of your actions" like this. A couple lines here and there could fix it I think.

haha, at this point in the unknown timeline Alicia is already heavily involved in OUF operations. I have a bit of a story that I'm writing for a Pre-OUF Alicia. It will be basically the first unofficial mission she runs for the OUF.

for now though I'm writing the rest of the sequence, its long, so please bear with me, I'm going as fast as spare time allows.

But I need in put from you all right now. We need two things.

Ship names (Ours and the downed ship.)
Remember our ship is kind of a small cruiser. A capitol ship in its rights but just on the edge of the small scale. So fast, maneuverable, but still packs a punch without being a Juggernaut.
The downed ship is a fast Courier Transport, designed for carrying a small cargo and crew from point A to B as fast as possible.

(ps, sorry that Mictian is getting a lot of dialogue workout, I hope you don't mind, hes the only one out of all the bios that seem plausible to be the techy guy)

part two up! I shortened it quite a bit, we should be down on planet in another two or four parts =P

I told you it was long! Please please be patient heh. sorry =P

you might have noticed that I'm doing a little 'lost' type writing, each part is centric or rather from another character's perspective, though I didn't build you guy's characters so I have a bit less idea of how they thought, so I left that a little vauge.

If you have stuff to add that will add flavor or background to the scene then pm it to me and I'll edit it in. Stuff like what your character thought, etc etc what he remembered.

in the next scene or maybe the one after that I will make up a little story for Mictian's past when he was fresh out of boot, I hope you don't mind, it won't be major or intrusive, it will just be one of those "when I was back (then) there was this thing and this happened" little war stories, you can incorporate that into your bio if you like.
That is if that is ok with you, we can always change it, but it helps add flavor to that scene.

Actually, I might give that story to Tyren, just so he gets some dialogue. If hes alright with it.

Do what you want kevlar, so far Tyren seems to be lacking in any major back story or character (he's a pretty simple person), hehe, I might have to work on his biography a little more.

Edit: Forgot to mention but I might re-write a bit of Tyren's information, I don't want to make him too "perfect" or unique, but at least enough to give him a little more character.

part three is up! I'll start on part four when I wake up tommorow. I'm beat for now.

Oh I tried to give Tyren a few more lines and some character, if its not the direction you'd like for me to take it then I can change it.

I figured Tyren could be the guy who said what ever is on his mind and what everyone else is thinking but is too stuck up or serious to point out =P the comic relief guy.

haha.

Also I gave Jeme the color of Orange, I hope that is okay with you jeme, Indigo was a little hard to read.

Anyhow, the sequence should be done in two more parts, at the very most three and we will be into the actual mission, sorta =P

Thanks guys for your patience, I know I'm not the fastest writer, between my idiotic mistakes and RL its been a bit slow coming. Sorry.
