TIMELINE (Canon with our game inserted in navy)


41BBY-Anakin Skywalker is born
32BBY-The Blockade of Naboo

Padmé Amidala, former Princess of Theed, is elected Queen of Naboo.

The Invasion of Naboo

The Trade Federation, under the influence of Darth Sidious, blockades, and eventually invades, Naboo at the behest of the Dark Lord of the Sith.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn free Queen Amidala along with her political entourage and personal security force.

Anakin Skywalker is discovered by Qui-Gon Jinn on the planet Tatooine. Qui-Gon wins Anakin's freedom by betting against Anakin's owner Watto in a podrace Anakin himself participates in.

Queen Amidala returns to Naboo and ends a period of disdain between the two predominant species on the planet: Humans and Gungans. The Gungans engage the droid army while the Queen and her security force capture the leaders of the Trade Federation. In the battle, Qui-Gon Jinn is killed by Darth Maul, who, in turn, is killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Daultay Dofine is killed when the Droid Control Ship is destroyed by Anakin Skywalker.

Following the Battle of Naboo, Senator Palpatine is elected Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, replacing Finis Valorum.

Count Dooku leaves the Jedi Order and disappears, secretly joining Darth Sidious.

The creation of a secret clone army begins on Kamino, under the order placed by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas.

Jango Fett, a bounty hunter, is put to a challenge of hunting Komari Vosa, a fallen Jedi, by her former master, Count Dooku. Vosa had succumbed to the Dark-side after being captured and tortured by the cult Bando Gora, which she later attained rulership over. Dooku put the challenge to multiple renegade warriors in hopes of finding the best. Fett already had a reputation as a capable bounty hunter, and being a Mandalorian, Dooku knew he had the best chance to defeat the evil Vosa. In the end, after defeating his rival, Montross, Fett then defeats the Dark-Jedi within her temple on Kohlma. With his victory, Dooku pays Fett a great sum of credits but also reveals his plan to use Fett's DNA for replication into a grand clone army. Jango's only other request is an unaltered clone be made for him; he names him Boba Fett.

Count Dooku murders Sifo-Dyas and becomes Darth Tyranus, the second Sith apprentice of Darth Sidious.
22BBY-The Military Creation Act and the Battle of Geonosis

Anakin Skywalker returns to his homeworld of Tatooine and meets his step brother Owen Lars and his girlfriend Beru. Shmi Skywalker is captured by the Tusken Raiders. Anakin Skywalker finds her; unfortunately it is too late and his mother dies in his arms. Driven by anger and rage, Anakin massacres the entire village of Tuskens while the Force ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn tries to stop him.

Obi-Wan Kenobi discovers that Nute Gunray has been attempting to have Padmé Amidala assassinated as revenge for the Battle of Naboo. He also discovers that separatists under the leadership of Count Dooku are forming the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

Palpatine is given emergency powers by the Senate and authorized the creation of the Grand Army of the Republic to "counter the increasing threats of the separatists."

The Clone Wars begins with the Battle of Geonosis. Mace Windu kills Jango Fett in the fighting and many Jedi are killed attempting to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi, his apprentice and Padmé Amidala.

Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala marry in secret on Naboo.
22-19BBY-The Clone Wars

Aayla Secura and Ylenic It'kla track down a Techno Union scientist on Corellia.

A Dark Jedi named Asajj Ventress meets Count Dooku and proclaims herself as a Sith. However after fighting with Count Dooku she understands that her power is inferior to theirs and wishes to join the Sith, so Darth Sidious and Count Dooku use her for their dark plan against Anakin Skywalker.

Wedge Antilles is born on Corellia.
21BBY-Clone Wars

Welcome to the 501st! Our Story starts here:
After only the briefest respite from war, Team Derecho is assigned a SpecOps mission to destroy a planetary Relay Station that defends the Braxant Run - a hyperspace lane that leads into the hear of Confederate space. A chain of sensor relay outposts that receive and send signals along the Braxant Run is one of the chief sources for the Confederacy to detect any Republic ingress into their territory. If the intrepid squad of heroes were able to silence the outpost, then Republic ships, carrying soldiers of the Grand Army, could begin to take positions to threaten Mygeeto and Muunilinst. Once in place, the Confederacy of Independent Systems would find their financial resources strained as the InterGalactic Banking Clans were threatened with invasion. It would be a step to help quickly bring the Clone Wars to an end. So three planetary systems along the Braxant Run hyperspace lane collect and send data of all spectrums of energy that approach the sector. The first closest to Republic Territory with its strong garrison of troops; the second further down the way but safer in its proximity to Confederate space. The third - with its massive booster to gather and transmit the long distance to Mygeeto - is the least expected to be assaulted...and the very one that the Derecho Squad has in its sites. Shut it down and the outer two go silent and the Republic Navy can converge.
19BBY-Birth of the Galactic Empire

The Clone Wars end, Count Dooku is killed by Anakin Skywalker during the Battle of Coruscant and General Grievous is killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi on Utapau.

New Force Technique

Impale [Dark side]


You grab an opponent with the Force, then hurling your lightsaber you impale the target. Time: Standard action. Target: One enemy (the primary target), within 6 squares and line of sight

Make a Use the Force Check. If your Use the Force check equals or exceeds the primary target's Will defense, the target is lifted off its feet as you make a single ranged attack with a lightsaber.

DC 20: If your primary target is no more than one size larger than you, or smaller (and is neither grabbed or grappled), you hurl your lightsaber at the target. If you hit, deal normal one handed lightsaber damage. After damage is resolved, you may Spend a Force Point (as a free action) to draw your lightsaber back to your hand and hurl the target for additional damage. You may move a hurled target up to 2 squares, dealing 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage. Any target struck by your primary target (secondary target) takes equal bludgeoning damage.

DC 25: As DC 20 except, a hurled target moves 4 squares and suffers 2d6 points of damage.

DC 30: As DC 20 except, a hurled target moves 6 squares and suffers 3d6 points of damage.

DC 35: As DC 20 except, a hurled target moves 8 squares and suffers 4d6 points of damage.

Lightsaber form (Niman): If you have the Niman talent, you can target a creature within 12 squares (instead of 6 squares).

Lightsaber Talent (Improved Lightsaber Throw): If you have the Improved Lightsaber Throw talent, you gain a temporary Force Point that may only be use to hurl the primary target of this power or to activate the Improved Lightsaber Throw talent.

Special: You may maintain this power as a Standard action, requiring a new use the Force check each round. While maintaining this power you deal normal weapon damage, without adding ability damage (Strength nor Dexterity), to the primary target each round that it remains Impaled (no attack roll required).  The primary target may attempt to remove the saber as a swift action (provided it has a free hand) if he can make a successful endurance check (as a swift action). The DC of this endurance check is set by your Lightsaber damage. Additionally: You are considered flat-footed to any other attackers, and if attacked, you lose concentration and drop your target. This lightsaber form may be Rebuked.



Death Sticks

Consuming a death stick grants a euphoria bonus of +1 to all attack bonuses and defense for the duration of the Euphoria.

Standard Euphoria lasts one hour, but taking another death stick used right after it reduces the euphoria by 5 minutes.  At the end of the euphoria the death stick makes a +10 attack against my fort defense (and +1 for each death stick).  If it hits, I am addicted.

Furthermore, I move -1 persistent step down the condition track if I am addicted for each day I do not use a death stick.

A death stick addiction can be broken by another character who makes me go one week without death sticks and makes a dc 25 treat injury check.



Conditions

To make the Condition track work better in our game, and more in step with the CODA Wounds and Weariness functions, your Condition will be reduced the number of levels that the damage does, based on your Threshold. In better english, see the example below:

If a character has a damage threshold of 15, and if he sustains damage in the amount of 15 in one attack, he is moved to Condition Track -1.

If the same character instead receives damage of 16-30 in the same attack, he goes to Condition track -2.

If the same character instead receives damage of 31-45 in the same attack, he goes to Condition track -5.

If the same character instead receives damage of 46-60 in the same attack, he goes to Condition track -10.

And finally, if the same character instead receives damage of 61-75 (if he is not killed) in the same attack, he goes to Condition track Helpless.

I make this rule because I have always had a problem with the core rules that if a PC with a 15 threshold takes 60 damage in one attack he is reduced to a -1 condition, the same as a different character with a 15 threshold who might take 20 damage in one attack.



Skill Focus (UtF)

Skill Focus (UtF) needs to be limited in some way. Whether it's a minimum level prerequisite, or a scaling bonus.

Skill Focus: You can limit Skill Focus to a minimum level (ex: level 5), or you can convert Skill Focus into a scaling bonus. That is, Skill Focus grants a competence bonus equal to your character level, to a maximum of +5. For example, at level 2, the bonus is +2. At level 4, the bonus is +4. Skill Focus would cap at level 5 in this instance. A more firm restriction is: Skill Focus grants a competence bonus equal to one-half your character level rounded down, to a maximum of +5. For example, at level 2, the bonus is +1. At level 4, the bonus is +2. At level 7, the bonus is +3. Skill Focus would cap at level 10 in this instance.

The only Skill Focus that needs to be fixed is Skill Focus (Use the Force). This is to avoid the likely +13 UtF check modifier for a level 2 force-user. This makes a force-user quite overpowered, especially with Move Object, Force Slam, Force Grip, and other popular damaging Force powers. I find it unfair that a level 2 force-user has a UtF of +13, while the level 2 soldier has an attack bonus of about +5 or so. Level 2 scouts, scoundrels and nobles will probably have an attack bonus of +2.

Skill Focus (UtF), fix #1:
Skill Focus (UtF) grants a competence bonus equal to your character level, to a maximum of +5. For example, at level 2, the bonus is +2. At level 4, the bonus is +4. Skill Focus would cap at level 5 in this instance.

Skill Focus (UtF), fix #2:
Skill Focus grants a competence bonus equal to one-half your character level rounded down, to a maximum of +5. For example, at level 2, the bonus is +1. At level 4, the bonus is +2. At level 7, the bonus is +3. Skill Focus would cap at level 10 in this instance.

Fix #2 is a more firm restriction than Fix #1.
