This will be the discussion thread for Star Wars: the Rats and the Mynocks
is the sign-up sheet and character sheet.
I'd like to get everyone together for some basic collaborative world-building before we kick off the game.
I'm provisionally designating our "neighborhood" as a roughly 30km by 30km square piece of Coruscant's surface, dotted with towers reaching a kilometer or more in height, with some reaching up to 2.5km. That will give us well over a thousand cubic kilometers to play in, with all the resources that it entails. The average tower is squat and boxy, its base a square about a kilometer per side.
The center is dominated by four towers in a box formation, pyramids a kilometer by a kilometer at their bases and tapering off as they hit their summits at about 2600m or so—Zoughnie Towers North, South, East, and West. The rest of the towers ring around them.*
(Incidentally, if anyone's taken any classes in urban planning, your help is sought. I'm aware that planning a vertical cityscape like Coruscant is probably a few orders of magnitude in difference from, say, New York or Shanghai, but your insights would be helpful all the same.)
For any wargamers out there, here
is my version of the Vong TO&E up to battalion level.
