"Welcome to Empire Outpost 1313, the edge of galactic space and just right outside the Uncharted Regions. Some of you may be wondering if the Uncharted Regions are full of savages and pirates, well you'd be wrong. As far as we can tell it is filled with hundreds of inhabited worlds and numerous stations and colonies, run by robber barons, pirate lords, republic exiles and so on. If you're here as a initiate who signed up for this job thinking it'd be easy, let me answer the question burning in the back of your mind, we are not sending fleets in to impose the Empire's order for the simple reason of we don't have the resources. The loss of Project Stardust and the most recent issue with the first executor class Star Destroyer almost being stolen means our issues are more pressing at the moment back in Empire space. We are still attempting to institute order through diplomats and a few excursions but largely through the hired practice of Bounty Hunters. They are sent in on Imperial Credit to explore the region and deal with large names, as well as taking jobs from anyone currently living within the region to keep themselves afloat. So belay your questions and be patient, we shall deal with this lawless space eventually."

"Ah hello, welcome to the Uncharted Bounty Office, are you here to apply?"

Premise

This is a Bounty Hunter RP set in the Star Wars universe, during the age of the Empire in the uncharted regions where Empire involvement will be minimal, I made this because I really wanted to play a bounty hunter RP recently.

You are free to post in whatever writing form you feel acceptable and the RP is less "One GM runs everything" and more "The players set up scenarios and character interactions". I'll be starting with a small run of player characters before seeing about expanding further.

Force Powers will be allowed in the RP but keep them minimal please as they could easily become OP, and technically anyone with force powers is to be removed by order of the Empire.

You will be allowed 1 Character, 1 Droid, Character Items, Character Ship to start, see how this goes and all.

Let's hope this turns out well.

A little of both, the flavor text at the top covers Canon events but Legends has infinitely more detail to use. So at your own discretion.

  • Name: Arch Pendor
  • Age: 30
  • Gender: Male
  • Species: Nautolan
  • Personality: Drunk. Collected. Self-Loathing. Reflective. Cool. These are just a few words to describe Arch but they are certainly accurate. Caring little more than where his next credits are coming from and how little effort it requires, Arch lives a shallow existence of materialism and hedonism. There are a few lines he won't cross in order to make money or look good but they are there. He maintains a strict code against killing children, killing for pleasure, hunting endangered species, and killing an unarmed foe but anyone else is fair game in his book. Sobriety, to him, is a state of being that should be escaped from whenever possible. He prefers partying and getting high and drunk to fighting but he is no stranger to combat. Overall, he gives off a beatnik/musician vibe.
  • Appearance: Here
  • Skills and Abilities:
    • Decent Shot: Arch is an average shot for a bounty hunter but better than most normal people.
    • Hand to Hand Master: In terms of hand to hand combat, Arch is very proficient in street fighting. Combining that with a very rough form of boxing, Arch is able to gain an upper hand in a fight against most people except martial arts experts.
    • Music: A very good slitherhorn player who was just barely not good enough to go pro, Arch is excellent musician who still keeps in practice. He also has a beautiful singing voice
    • Mechanical: He's read manuals and been around them enough to be able to fix basic mechanical troubles in speeders or spaceships.
    • Drugs and Booze: As a user and occasional dealer, Arch is an expert when it comes to drugs and alcohol. He can tank dosages that would kill other people and is knowleagble about the best way to blend certain strains/cocktails.
  • Items:
  • History: A talented musician, Arch played with a number of big bands but never quite made it to become a pro. Destitute and living a rock star's life of drugs, booze, and hookers, Arch turned to bounty hunting to make ends meet. Sometime along the way, he stopped calling himself a musician and started calling himself a full-time hunter.

Bounty Hunter

  • Name: IG-69 (Placeholder)
  • Age: 9 technically. Personality-wise they're 40s.
  • Gender: Non-binary
  • Species: IG Series Droid
  • Personality: Do to problems uploading their sentience program, 69 is a wannabe playboy who travels the galaxy, hunting for bounties [spoiler: and booties]. Unlike their other counterparts in the IG line they are not obsessed with killing but prefer to use the appropriate means to bring bounties in. If a bounty can be brought in live they will do so. Of course they are no stranger to bloodshed and will kill targets if the bounty demands it or if they are particularly dangerous.
  • Appearance: Like this only they wear a poncho, wide brim hat, boots and gloves that near completely hide his droid status.
  • Skills and Abilities: As an IG series droid he comes equipped with a computer input port, broadband antenna, blaster reflective palms, heat and motion sensors, trackers, acid proof servo wires, and a highly durable outer plating. He can lock onto and shoot multiple targets at once and does not require food, air or water, though does need their power supply recharged every so often. They possess fast reflexes and physical strength above that of most sentient creatures and on pair with some of the more monstrous species. Due to their sturdy construction they are unencumbered by most heavy loads.
  • Items:
    • Lasers (Built in)
    • DAS 430-Neural Manipulator
    • Paralysis Cord
    • DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistols X 2
    • Stun Pulser
    • Concussion Grenades
    • Various self-maintenance tools
  • History: An older model of the IG-series and a precursor to the 88 assassin line, 69 was activated and given sentience during IG-88s revolution. Due to quirks during the upload of their sentience program they developed a wistful, romantic personality and abandoned their siblings to venture into the stars. Of course you have to pay for oil baths somehow and killer droids do what killer droids do. So now 69 travels across the galaxy taking in bounties to make ends meet, composing bad poetry and hitting up every club along the way.
  • Other: 69 is not their proper model number, it's what they call themself.

Ship

  • Name: Bloodhound
  • Ship Class: Scout
  • Ship basis: Z-95 Headhunter
  • Appearance: This bad boy right here. Only red.
  • Notable Features: Besides the wicked red paintjob, nothing. Standard configuration.

- Bounty Hunter

Name: Nalla Huntresse / N the Huntress

Age: 20 Standard (Due to her species truncated lifespan, this is equivalent to late 20s/early 30s)

Gender: Female

Species:Zygerrian

Personality: Deceptive and untrusting. Nalla the Huntress is slightly below average height for her race; growing up, she had to use deception and surprise tactics to make her way in Zygerrian culture and had no one to rely on but herself.She is used to hiding her true feelings; she tends to switch between two 'personas'. In her bounty hunter persona she tends to be curt, rarely talking except for threats. As 'Nalla' she appears to be an innocent, bubbly tourist girl. When dealing with fellow Xygerrians, she is always in Huntress Persona.

Appearance: 1.5 Meters tall, Purple furred triangular ears, dark pink skin, amethyst eyes, clawed finger tips. She is usually dressed as a tourist, wearing purple and bright pink outfits over a dark gray body stocking. The colorful parts of her outfit are always easily removable, leaving her in just the body-stocking, utility boot, and thin, flexible boots.

Skills and Abilities: Hand to hand combat, stealth, close range energy weapons, linguistics, deception and impersonation. In hand to hand combat, she usually secretly fights with drugged claws and weighted gloves. She is highly skilled at deception, hand to hand combat, and stealth. She claims to disdain long range weapons due to them lacking honor, but in reality is just a bad shot at long range. She is a relatively skilled linguist, able to fake multiple accents.

Items: Utility belt, wrist bracers, boots with vibro knife tucked in right boot in special sheath. Utility belt includes: Retractable shock whip, rope, cred pouch, shock collars and restraints, stun pistol, lockpick/lock probes, and a small med-kit including chemical incapacitation drugs. Wrist bracers have a remote for the restraints built into her left wrist bracer, and a communicator built into her right wrist bracer. Finger-less gloves havehidden metal inserts to protect her palms and to let the gloves act as brass knuckles in a fight. In addition to the boots being light weight and flexible enough to be worn when running and climbing, the boots have a spare com link and lock-probe hidden in the boot heels, in addition to the vibro knife in the right boot.

History: A child of a poor family, Nalla's childhood was filled with unpleasant memories and being bulled for her below average height, weird eye color, and slender frame. She ran away from home at the age of 11 (the equivelent of late adolescence for her species), making up a new last name of 'Huntresse', and was hired by a Zygerian bounty hunter who saw Nalla's potential as a lure. He taught Nalla how to use her small size as an advantage, convincing targets to trust her or lower their guard until she turned on them. He would send her in to talk with people to find out where their target was, Nalla pretending to be sympathetic to the slaves cause or wanting to help the target to get the information. He also trained Nalla in a variety of ways to fight at close range but refused to train her in long range combat, reserving that role for himself. He trained her in the four 'Gets': Get in, get target, get out, get paid. She stayed with him for six years, learning the business before leaving when he constantly refused to go after larger bounties. Nalla left her home world then, spending the years since learning how to blend in with other species. She expanded her target-list, no longer just chasing escaped slaves as she did on Zygerria. She now prefers more lucrative contracts, building a cover of a wealthy tourist with some 'exotic' tastes. Few people know that that Nalla and 'N the Huntress' are the same person. Nalla has taken criminal as well as legal jobs; she has more then once been hired to kidnap someone so that her employer could later ransom that person back to the target's family.

-Ship:

Name: Currently registered as 'Star Venturer'

Ship Class: Modifed Star Commuter 50, a smaller version of the Star Commuter 2000.

Ship basis: Hyperspace capable, droid brain to allow the Star Venturer to navigate and fly by itself. Has limited anti-pirating weaponry but the best stealth and Electronic counter measures systems Nalla could acquire. The Star Venturer is meant to look like a rich girl's toy used to gallivant across the galaxy, while at the same time being Nalla's way to extract herself from whatever situation Nalla finds herself in.

Appearance: Dark purple with pink and gold trim.

Notable Features: Stealth/ECM suite, droid brain, hidden weapon armory and brig/holding cell, ship is self-piloting.

Personality: Having a droid brain, Star Venturer can talk and does so. It speaks with an upper class accent, constantly trying to get Nalla to constantly act like a wealthy, high born lady. While well aware of Nalla's often criminal and dangerous occupation, the Star Venturer lives in the constant hope that Nalla will some day retire from bounty hunting and embrace her cover identity of a wealthy, fun-loving socialite. Has picked up several eccentricities, including referring to any of N's prisoners as her 'guests'. The droid brain is hard-wired not to be able to fire weapons on its own.

Tuesday next week.


And the GM PC, as much as one can be defined. Again I won't handle every bounty, the players create bounties and events.

- Bounty Hunter

  • Name: Lance Rhett
  • Age: 38
  • Gender: Male
  • Species: Human
  • Personality: Curt, Terse, and direct. Lance is a stoic bounty hunter which makes him often difficult to work with according to others as he is hard to read. He's a professional and aims to get the job done as quick as possible, he's also hard to bribe off. A Job's a job and accepting money from a mark to drop the job is unprofessional. His only major goal is to keep his ship in top shape and make it a comfortable place to live.
  • Appearance: Lance himself.
  • Skills and Abilities:
    • Gunslinger - Lance prefers to use a blaster pistol and is notoriously accurate with it. Capable of a quickdraw when needed.
    • Unarmed Combat - Lance has been trained on how to effectively throw a punch and use his foe's own strength against them.
    • Pilot - While he won't be destroying the Death Star during a trench run or outflying Vader or Luke, Lance is a decent enough pilot to avoid getting caught.
    • Mechanic - Being a Bounty Hunter out on the rim means that your time near any shipyard or at a repair bay is pretty much limited to nonexistent. Any good spacer worth their spice has to be capable of fixing their equipment, this has resulted in Lance being able to construct his own explosive devices.
  • Items:
    • Modified Void Armor - A custom built suit that has been put together over the years and now serves as Lance's primary protection. It has modern blaster armor on it allowing Lance to take a hit, and can be completely vacuum sealed for EVA activity, the helmet also can filter toxic gasses and has a heads up display.provide any strength enh
    • A451-PD model blaster sidearm
    • Concussion Grenades
    • Cuffs
    • Explosive packs
  • History: Lance originally served as a Police Officer for a planet on the outer rim, performing his duty quietly and professionally, until the Empire started to roll in. Sensing a change in duty and government, Lance left his job and quietly became a Bounty Hunter, preferring to at least catch criminals and still get paid for it, he doesn't talk much about his past.

-Droid

  • Designation: Hunter Killer 77, 77 for Short
  • Droid Class: Class 4
  • Appearance: An Assassin Droid in disguise
  • Programming: Masculine
  • Personality: Sadistic, Sarcastic, and all so gleeful about doing his job. 77 exists to catch people or shoot them, he doesn't care so long as he gets to be violent, despite this he is capable of acting professional and causing little trouble if asked. His greatest desire is to be asked to break someone's legs, something he's never been asked to do.
  • Purpose: "General Purpose Droid" is the official designation,
  • Items:

-Ship

  • Name: Cutter Corvette
  • Ship Class: Freighter
  • Ship basis: YV-929 Light Freighter
