Star Wars: The Empire's Finest (OOC/Signup)

"Why did I join the Empire? For one I'll tell it wasn't for the credits, I joined because I felt a sense of purpose and that purpose was to keep the Galaxy in order. I have seen first hand as a child how destructive the Clone Wars was, ever since the Emperor came into power there was finally peace in the Galaxy. Sadly the terrorist group known as the Rebel Alliance wants to undo that peace and bring ruin to the Galaxy once again. And there was no way I was going to sit on the sidelines and let those rebel scum destroy our peace."-Unknown Stormstrooper.

Welcome to Star Wars: The Empire's Finest! In this RP you will be in the shoes of the young men and women who joined the Empire to either fight for a purpose or just for the credits. In this RP you can choose to either be a regular Stormtrooper, TIE Fighter Pilot, or an Admiral. The RP will be set one year after the destruction of the first Death Star, this RP is only going to focus on the Empire's point of view during the Civil War. This is not going to be an RTS style of RP instead, it's only going to be a character-driven style of RP focusing on the emotions of each Imperial soldier.

Since this is character-driven there isn't a true main plot for the roleplay unless you count the Civil War being the overall plot of the RP. You are allowed to do sub-plots for your characters and ultimately have it end up as the main plotline for everybody's character to join in on. Now whatever you decided to do is up to you, just make sure it won't be rule-breaking! Speaking of rules I suggest you read them before you make your APP!

Rules
1. Do not be overpowered!

2. No one-liners! I expect two paragraphs or more when you post in the IC.

3. Do not meta-game.

4. Be Realistic when it comes to combat with enemy NPCs, which means don't have your character wipe out 1,000 rebels with one armed tied behind their back.

5. Please use Civil War era appropriate technology!

6. Please respect each other in the OOC.

7. Do not post OOC comments in the IC.

8. Give player-controlled characters time to react.

9. Use decent grammar and good spelling.

10. You can only be an Imperial in this RP.

11. No Force users!

12. Do not change anything about the main canon of Star Wars! And by that I mean don't have your character kill Luke Skywalker on Hoth or anything else!

APP
Name: Andrew Ette, DFM
Age: 22
Appearance: 5'10", light brown hair, cold steel eyes, medium build.
Gender: Male
Occupation: (Stormtrooper, pilot, admiral, etc): TIE Bomber pilot, commander of the 487th squadron "Azure". Stationed the feng Chao escort carrier
Rank: Commander
Weapons: SC-14r Blaster Pistol, TIE Bomber w/ modification to missile hardpoints enabling the carrying of 6, instead of 4, ordnance types.
Bio: (One Paragraph or more)
Andrew Ette grew up on the planet of Coruscant, he was the only child of Alexander and Rosalind Ette. They raised him to be strongly patriotic to the Empire, but to be tolerant of other races and cultures. His family was middle class, surviving on his father's, a retired Colonel in the Imperial Navy, pension and current job at a water plant in lower Coruscant. His mother worked at the Senate building as an administrator for meetings. Andrew performed well in school, and was recommended for the Imperial Navy Academy by a local official. His early service was uneventful, but the event that boosted his career was a raid on a Rebellion convoy. The convoy had been bait for the TIE bombers, two squadrons of X-Wings jumped the TIE bombers in the middle of their attack run on the transports. The bombers were unescorted on their run, so the bombers had to defend themselves. After the death of their CO, Ette took command and was not only able to escape the trap with only 8 bombers lost out of the 24 that attacked, but was able to destroy 2 transports and seriously damage another, plus 5 X-wings destroyed or damaged. The event caused him to be awarded the Distinguished Flight Medal and a promotion the Commander.
RP Example:

"Alright, begin run!" Commander Zarius yelled into the intercom.

Lieutenant Andrew Ette pulled hard on his flight stick and kicked hard rudder. 400 meters off, he saw the 4 rebel transports they were jumping for the mission. He lined one up in his bombsight. He was carrying a load of 6 torpedoes, two of which could knock out a transport, permanently. He was aiming, when suddenly he heard,

"Shit! X-wings! 12 o' clock our level! Red 8!"

"Break! Break!" Commander Zarius yelled. Andrew rolled over and put full thrust into his engines, diving away. The void lit up with blaster fire from the X-wings and TIE bombers taking potshots. He pulled up alongside the Commander's TIE and flew his wing, until a flash of light and a cloud of dust replaced the commander.

"This is Red 3! Red 1 is down,come in Red 2!" Andrew shouted into his intercom, veering wildly out of the way of a X-wing bearing down on him. There was no reply.

"Red Squadron, this is Red 3. Ditch your payloads at the transports and let's get the hell outta here!" Andrew lined up a head on with a transport, and fired all of his torpedoes into it. The transport exploded in a brief flash. A torpedo had missed, and slammed into the belly of another transport. He applied full throttle to his engines and zoomed away, taking down a X-wing target-locked on Red 6's tail. The other TIE bombers formed up on Ette as they left the Rebels behind and headed for home.

You didn't have to type up the RP Example you could've given me a link to show me a RP post you did in the past. I should've explained the RP Example a bit more, but other than that.

Working on it!

APP
Name: Kalo Baan, first lieutenant
Age: 25
Appearance:
Gender:
Occupation: Imperial army trooper
Rank: first lieutenant
Weapons: E-10 blaster rifle, durasteel machete, combat knife
Bio: Kalo Baan was born on Ithor, in a community of human settlers trying their best to cultivate the lush jungle planet. The Baan family was closely alined with the empire from its foundation, since it came with a relative increase in rights when compared to the native Ithorians. Slavery of non-humans was legalised, which was a huge quality of life improvement for mid rim plantation owners on planets like Ithor.

Ithor was also a hub of rebel activity in the region. The native Ithorians had been staunch allies of the republic, but where less inclined to support the empire. Terrorist attacks and slave risings in these colonies, along with brutal murders of human colonists, was common enough for everyone to worry.

When the Empire came to pacify the planet 6 BBY, Kalo was awe-struck by the display of power. All it took was a few ships jumping out of hyperspace, a landing by storm troopers, and a few public executions. The planet was quickly pacified, and Kalo Baan was inspired. He signed up later that year, and was assigned to the infantry. Not as a storm trooper, of course, as those were elite troops drafted from the Empire’s finest. He joined as an imperial trooper, the rank-and-file of the imperial army, and was placed in an ‘early landing division’. These divisions were the first to land on hostile planets, and were used to set up early bases of operations or to scout out certain areas. The perfect job for mid-rimmers, who were eagerly thrust into dangerous work.
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

I know we're not IC yet, but I wanted to get some feedback.
Imperial Escort Carrier “Fēng-Cháo”

Last year, the loss off the Death Star had been a terrible blow to the morale of her crew. So many lives lost on something that most Imperials hadn't even heard of until the footage and Rebel propaganda made it's way into the news nets. The concept of the DS frightened the Captain, she had hoped it would never be needed, but it was always good to have the biggest deterrent on one's side. However, she was more of a "hands on" personality, so hunting down the terrorist Rebel Alliance ship by ship and person by person was fine with her. In the months that followed, that's what her ship and crew did, hunt them down and exact vengeance.

In the Officer’s Mess, after the “evening meal”, Captain Raphe Zhǔ ‘politely’ requested her squadron and flight commanders to remain for an informal chat. As she invited them to relax, she let down her silver hued hair. It wasn’t an effect of age, the Captain’s chronological age was only thirty, but a product the high mineral content of her homeworld’s air pollution and the drugs that were used to combat the pollution’s effect on the human body.

Zhǔ instructed her steward to prepare hot chai for herself and the other officers.

After they had been served and appeared comfortable, Zhǔ smiled pleasantly and spoke, “While not ‘official’, I have heard from a reliable source about our next mission.” After a brief pause, she continued, “We will be attached to a small convoy of transports. It may be that the official cargo and destination of the supplies has been compromised by the spies of the rebel scum, so there are a number of operations going on. First, if we encounter the rebels, we will be closer stopping the leak. Second, the Fēng-Cháo will not be listed as part of the convoy, so it’s possible that we may be an unexpected surprise on the rebels, or possible pirates. Third, we will gather intelligence and perhaps be able to narrow down the location of the rebel base in this sector of space.”

The Captain smiled and asked, “Any thoughts, ladies and gentlemen?”

Oh heck with it. Let's see how this goes.

CHARACTER APPLICATION
Image

Image

Name: Franjere “Fran” Leatal
Age: 24
Appearance:
    Standing at 5’1”, Fran is by no means a tall individual. Skinny, his body’s lean muscle stands-out amidst the bones and pale skin. His brown hair stands-out, cut clean on both sides, with some degree of stubble present at most of all moments. A pair of spectacles are often worn, something some might find a sign of weakness amongst the Akk hound atmosphere of Imperial fighter pilots if they didn’t know who Fran was.
Gender: Male
Occupation: Flight Leader for 438th Fighter Squadron (TIE/IN), Embarked Fēng-Cháo
Rank: Commander
Weapons:
    EC-17 Blaster Pistol
    Assassin-1, “Lucy”, TIE/IN
      Modified extensively by Fran, “Lucy” as she’s been called by some few, mostly the mechanics crew, is a fighter most wouldn’t want to deal with. Her six L-s9.3 Laser Cannons have been removed and built into a singular housing, arranged in an octagon, underneath the cockpit itself, with the firing controls being reprogrammed as to have all six cannons fire simultaneously. The four now open hardpoints are reserved for heavy missiles and other such ordinance, a favorite being cruise missiles, though concussion missiles are often mounted. The fighter retains it’s twin Multipurpose Warhead Launchers, enabling an extremely heavy punch compared to most others of it’s series. A shield generator salvaged from a Lambda-class T-4a shuttle gives it the ability to take a punch when needed, though it’s only rated for 45 SBD giving marginally weaker performance compared to a T65 X-Wing. Her engines have been upgraded in order to keep the TIE/IN’s signature speed advantage over opponents.

      While the overall paint scheme of the fighter has been retained, a series of white-red-white stripes, thin, run the length of each wing from tip to end. The cockpit itself is decorated only by a series of kill-scores on the right cheek. At present it stands at:
      3x Z95 Headhunter
      2x T65 X-Wing
      2x ARC-170
      4x M3-A Scyk
      1x DP20 Frigate
      2x Y-Wing
Biography:
    Born on Dathomir, Fran had an unerring wish to see more of the galaxy like many of the Outer Rim. He wanted to know more, to be more, and in some ways to have more. His parents were colonists for the rural planet, in most ways farmers, in some other ways traders, and always soldiers. The Night Witches were sometimes kind, sometimes cold, and never good to approach. Some were raving mad, some mysterious, and others simply would disappear. They always had to keep watch, to keep their eyes open. War might rage about them, in the far midsts of the galaxy, yet it never touched their little settlement. When he was just a year old, it had begun, the Confederacy rising against the Galactic Republic, though Fran would never know of it. When the Republic turned to Empire, he would never know of it. Imperial aid would come, though, to the little settlement, and they would warm quickly to their new regime, to the new order of things.

    He would see holo-dramas, government approved, government made, on the heroics of pilots and soldiers, on dashing brave officers and cunning strategists, on sergeants and privates, on captains and admirals. The Imperial Navy seemed to be a place to see the world and maybe do a little bit of good. They fought pirates, kept the trade lanes safe and open, protected the civilians against the enemy, whatever he may be. They seemed to be good. They seemed to be just. The uprisings they had heard of, they were terrorists and traitors, evil men who blew up comm stations and trains, to attacked spaceports in the name of their cruel visions for the galaxy. Someone always did stop them, though.

    Fran would voice these thoughts to his parents at age twelve, when asked what he wanted to do. He wanted to see more. He wanted to be a pilot. Of course, they disagreed, they wanted something else, but then again...maybe their son could be a pilot. Maybe he could do a bit more, see a bit more, and leave the galaxy a better place. Of the war they’d seen little to dissuade them of these facts and they had seen the holo-dramas just the same as Fran had, albeit with a little bit more skepticism. They wanted their son to not be bound down to the life they had, to not set him on that path with no regards for his own wishes and this, in the end, would be the deciding factor. At age fifteen, they gave their consent to Fran. He would go to the Imperial Academy at Cardia and make his dream into a reality.

    The young man trained before he left, trained for the three years before he would take that transport away, and he wanted to do more than merely pass. He wanted to excel. As hard as he pushed himself, Fran would look to the heroes who had first driven himself to enlist and find that he just wasn’t doing enough. When he would go to the Academy, Fran found that it had indeed not been enough. It could never have been enough. The training for starfighter pilot was brutal, one of the things a person had to experience to understand, and Fran turned his mind off from everything else and turned to the task at hand, whatever it might be. He was as single-minded as they came, as tenacious in the production of an end result that might just satisfy the instructors. In the end, Fran would survive and be placed in a TIE/IN squadron aboard one of the older Acclamator-Class Assault Ships, plying the Outer Rim, the Implacable.

    His first actions again pirate forces were commendable, engaging against raiders and other marauding groups who had taken to harassing civilian merchants and stations. Destroying multiple older Clone Wars era fighters, he would eventually come across his first true Rebel forces. For something that was supposed to be extremely deadly, it being a Y-Wing squadron did not impress Fran in the slightest. What did impress him was the X-Wing squadron that showed up shortly thereafter, giving considerable pains to the young man and surviving, in part, due to the arrival of a CR90 Corvette. With this now in mind, he made all due haste to make plans in equipping himself far better than before, working hard to get the mechanics aboard appropriately happy. His engagements, and those engagements following, would get Fran into the seat of a TIE/IN and in the command of a new squadron, the 438th. Actions against Rebel forces would be somewhat more sparse as he and his would be assigned to Vader’s Death Squadron. It would be during this period that the man would take pains in getting these new mechanics appropriately happy, getting his fighter ready to face and surprise whatever new foe he would meet.

    He would be present at the Battle of Yavin, though unfortunately not to the degree he would have liked. Engagements against the Rebel forces would lead to him making an opportunistic and impromptu bombing run against an unshielded DP20 Frigate, earning some notoriety and mirth as the fighter pilot who wanted to be a bomber. Since then he and the 438th have been transferred to the Fēng-Cháo.

This will follow the canon story of Star Wars just to keep it safe.


Which canon are we talking about? Disney or Legends one? In Disney it was a basic, Empire lost and Rebellion won situation. In Legends I think, the fighting continued on for quite a while with many factions forming from the remnants of the Empire.

At this point in time, I don't think we need to care about the fall of the Empire, whether it is or isn't logical (I enjoy Legends), since that happens following the Second Death Star which is around three years away.

If this RP spans three years ICly, I will be amazed.

Gender:Male
Occupation: TIE Fighter pilot
Rank: Commander
Weapons: TIE Fighter, DH-17 Blaster Pistol
Bio: Castor Vex was born on the planet of Naboo to rich, aristocratic parents. From his birth Castor experienced the finest in education, food, and fashion the Empire had to offer. Being from the home planet of the Emperor helped to further increase his patriotism towards the Empire. Using their array of connections in the Imperial bureaucracy to get their son straight into the Navy Officer Academy. While he was never the top of the class, Castor still achieved great results and proved to be an excellent fighter pilot. His parents tried to push him towards a safer posting on one of the ubiquitous Star Destroyers or a desk job, but his fiery patriotism pushed him towards a front-line role protecting the Empire. He began his deployment on a quiet assignment chasing pirates on the outer rim, but soon grew bored blasting misfit marauders and patchwork pirates. The ramshackle raiders did not seem to much of a threat to the massive Empire and its wondrous navy. Upon hearing rumors of terrorists and rebels leading attacks on imperial vessels, Castor requested a transfer to fight in the hotspots of the rebellion. In the rebellion he found a worthy foe for his skills. They had real fighters with talented pilots, cruisers with powerful turbolasers, and swarms of devastating bombers. His excitement for battle was soon squashed by the destruction of the Death Star. The massive lost of skilled naval personnel, some of them were Castor's friends from the academy, was a morbid wake up call. Castor's patriotic spirit was replaced by a burning thirst for vengeance on the scum who would dare harm the people of the Empire.

Imperial Escort Carrier “Fēng-Cháo”

The loss off the Death Star had been a terrible blow to the morale of her crew. The concept of the DS frightened the Captain, she had hoped it would never be needed, but it was always good to have the biggest deterrent on one's side. However, she was more of a "hands on" personality, so hunting down the terrorist Rebel Alliance ship by ship and person by person was fine with her.

In the Officer’s Mess, after the “evening meal”, Captain Raphe Zhǔ ‘politely’ requested her squadron and flight commanders to remain for an informal chat. As she invited them to relax, she let down her silver hued hair. It wasn’t an effect of age, the Captain’s chronological age was only thirty, but a product the high mineral content of her homeworld’s air pollution and the drugs that were used to combat the pollution’s effect on the human body.

Zhǔ instructed the cabin boy to prepare hot chai for herself and the other officers.

After they had been served and appeared comfortable, Zhǔ smiled pleasantly and spoke, “While not ‘official’, I have heard from a reliable source about our next mission.” After a brief pause, she continued, “We will be attached to a small convoy of transports. It may be that the official cargo and destination of the supplies has been compromised by the spies of the rebel scum, so there are a number of operations going on. First, if we encounter the rebels, we will be closer stopping the leak. Second, the Fēng-Cháo will not be listed as part of the convoy, so it’s possible that we may be an unexpected surprise on the rebels, or possible pirates. Third, we will gather intelligence and perhaps be able to narrow down the location of the rebel base in this sector of space.”

The Captain smiled and asked, “Any thoughts, ladies and gentlemen?”



"Just keep me and my men covered, and we'll do what you need us to do cap." Cmdr.Ette (dfm) replies to the Captain, taking a sip of the chai.
