The Gungan Council (frequently abreviated as TGC) is a Star Wars-based role playing and discussion board established in 1999 by General Ceel in the wake of The Phantom Menace craze. It began on SWFans.com before moving to ezBoard and has since been one of the most active boards on the system. Since then, it has had its ups and downs, several restructuring of the rules, a massive ezBoard-wide hack, and a migration towrad Yuku. Yet, it has managed to stay incredibly active and open to anyone that wants to roleplay or just talk about Star Wars and other topics.The premise of The Gungan Council is simple: it is an entirely character driven roleplay. Characters of any type can be freely made and introduced. After that, the characters join one of the many factions of The Gungan Council for both out-of-character and in-character training. The OOC training comes from being introduced to the setting and style of The Gungan Council as a writer, while the IC training comes from skills one's character learns. This makes TGC easily accessible to writers of any skill.Rather than taking place during a set time in the Star Wars universe, The Gungan Council is almost like its own separate universe where all the events of Star Wars canon happened yet elements from the earlier chronological dates of Star Wars canon can be used. Also, the continuity for characters is defined on an individual basis. Many times, characters can easily retcon details of their past without any worry. General Ceel wrote an essay that goes into detail about the timline.TGC can be found here. It also has its own wiki!In 2011, a podcast for TGC began. It frequently features active TGC members for interviews and segments. Recently, it managed to interview James Arnold Taylor, which can be listened to here.
