I'm usually watching something when these ideas spark inside my head. This was no different. I was watching the episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars where they infiltrate the Citadel by going in to Carbonite to hide their life signatures from the C.I.S. and thought: "How cool would it be if this was some spec ops operation, but instead of these people, they were OCs?" And, ta-da! This was born! This is a discussion thread, where you can post your character Bios and OOC chatter. Basically, the RP is based around Clone Troopers, all displaying unique capabilities, free thinking, and a remarkable will to survive. A lot of these Clones survived harsh conditions, most of which killed the rest of their units. They were placed in a near-unsurvivable situation, but survived and managed to return to the Republic. The sorts of clones range, from standard clones, to ARCs, to Republic Commandos, and even to a handful of Alpha-Class ARC Troopers assigned to oversee the squads. These clones are placed into rag-tag squads, each member specializing in something that makes them unique. They are sent on the most dangerous and suicidal missions the Republic has to offer. They are not expected to survive, but they weren't expected to survive the situations that led to them being chosen. The suicide squads usually only contain clones, but they also consist of Volunteers that have gone through similar situations and have emerged mentally stable. These clones are granted advanced equipment, and modified equipment of older generations, if it suits their preferences. If you want to RP as an Alpha, you need to message me over a Conversation. I'll require you to link me to an RP you've actively participated in, and from there I'll judge. If I say you can make a form, take the form and send it to me in our conversation first. If I approve, you can then post it here. I will reply on here that I have allowed you to do so. RP Thread: https://pokecharms.com/threads/star-wars-gar-suicide-squads-rp.15316/ Rules: 1. You can not be an Alpha without my permission. See above for more information. 2. You can swear, and there CAN be gore, but unless you're equipped with a blade or slugthrower, it's unlikely there will be much gore, since most laser based weapons cauterize the wounds. 3. You're character, if a Volunteer, can be Force Sensitive, but they can not be a Jedi, or equipped with a lightsaber. If we get too many Force Sensitive volunteers, I'm going to have to cut them off. This focuses on the troopers, not the Jedi or Sith, or the Force. 4. Follow the Pokecharms rules. 5. You need my permission to RP as anything above the rank of Lieutenant. Not as much hoops to jump through as Alpha Permission. Just message me, and I'll contemplate it and let you know. You need to let me know the rank you want your character to be. 6. Six character limit. Diversity, for those who want it. You can make your characters know each other, or other RPers' with their permission. 7. Any and all Alpha ARC's have default command over the Suicide Squads, but they all answer to Captain Alpha-18, since he originally proposed the idea and created the contingent. 8. TRY to explain your character in the description. If you think it's not sufficient, or you want it for context, you can add in pictures at the bottom of your post. 9. If you are an Alpha, you will mainly stay on the Venator "Rebound." Alphas only disembark on missions with Suicide Squads if their presence and leadership is necessary. Very rarely, a whole group of Alphas may be sent together, but only if the mission is extremely dangerous, and even deemed almost certain suicide by the Suicide Squad Contingent's standards. I'll make a post here if I decide there's something important that I feel should be added in, either to the rules or the description. An important note, this takes place during the time of clones having Phase II armor, the only clones whose armor would be different is the RCs. An important note for Serial Codes! They are at least four digits, with every four digits given a dash in between. Only exceptions are Alphas and Nulls, but there will be no Null ARCs, and Alphas require my permission. Ex: CT-9901/0003/4502. Also, for Serial Codes. They are dependent on your kind of trooper class. I will list them now: Clone Trooper (CT), Commanding Clone (Commanders, CC), Republic Commando (RC), Advanced Recon Commando (ARC), Advanced Recon Commando Commander (ARCC), Volunteer Trooper (VT), Volunteer Advanced Recon Commando (VARC), Volunteer Commander (VC), Volunteer Advanced Recon Commando Commander (VARCC) If you're going to make a character that doesn't have one of these designations, message me to make sure it makes sense, or if it may be a tag I missed. Remember, this is an OPEN RP, you DON'T need permission to join. Form (*'s are optional, as usual with my RP's.): Serial Code: Rank: Name (If Volunteer. Leave blank if not): Nickname*: Skills: Weaponry/Equipment*: Armor Appearance: Physical Appearance: Personality*: Likes*: Dislikes*: Reason For Integration (Why they were chosen): Mine (I have two right now): Serial Code: Alpha-18 Rank: Captain (Default command over all Suicide Squad contingents, regardless of rank.) Nickname: "Gambit" Skills: Hand to Hand, Parkour, Modified Weaponry Weaponry/Equipment: Modified DC15A Rifle, Twin DC-17 Sidearms, Beskad (Mandalorian Iron sword.) Wrist-operated grappling hook. Armor Appearance: Modified Phase II Clone ARC Armor. He carries the standard ARC Backpack, Pauldron, and Kama. His armor is predominantly white with red stripes. His pauldron is red. His Kama is white, witha red trim. He wears a red sun-visor with a red range finder. Physical Appearance: His physical attributes are the same as most clones, however he has his hair cut short, with patterns. Personality: "Gambit" was always a free-thinker and strategist, and he continues to show his ingenuity. He likes to be on the front line with his men, but understands the strategic importance of staying in the Command Center. Likes: Free thinking, Sticking up for brothers, Show of strategic value Dislikes: Idiotic strategic moves, traitors, half truths, blindly obedient soldiers Reason For Integration: In the early days of the Clone Wars, "Gambit" was practically the definition of a free-thinking Clone. He also proposed the idea for the Suicide Squad Contingent. He was assigned to lead and train the Contingent. He hand-picks each possible candidate personally. Serial Code: RC-1119/1101 Rank: Second Lieutenant Nickname: "Kicker" Skills: Hacking, Mandalorian Hand to Hand Combat Weaponry/Equipment: DC-17M (Sniper and Anti-Armor Attachments), DC15 Pistol, Wrist Vibro-Knives, advanced hacking drone, underbarrel grappling hook attachment. Armor Appearance: Standard Republic Commando armor. It's predominantly black, with a glowing blue visor. There are splatters of blue painted on it, as well as some white spots from the original armor. His backpack displays his last two numbers, "01," and contains his hacking equipment. Physical Appearance: Average clone, except Kicker's hair is shaved at the sides. Personality: Of course, like most of the other clones in the Contingent, he's a free thinker. He likes to get to know his teammates, and watch their backs when in the field. He's always the humorous one, almost always having a joke to lighten the mood. He also uses it to deflect things that bother or annoy him. Likes: Teammates, Cooperativeness, Computers, Jokes Dislikes: Un-cooperativeness, stabs in the back, failing in hacking Reason For Integration: Kicker's squad was sent on a scouting operation on Umbara, a couple months before the 501st landed on the planet. It was a stealth op. Get in, get the Umbaran battle plans, and get out. Unfortunately, one of their teammates ratted them out, resulting in the death of every member of Ghost Squad, other than Kicker and the traitor. Kicker managed to still get the data and flee. He was forced to survive for weeks on Umbara, before finally managing to sneak aboard a C.I.S. shuttle and hi-jack it. He made it back to Republic space, and was one of the first clones to be recommended for the Suicide Squad Contingent. This took me at least an hour to make. Lol. Anyways, just make your form and post it. Once I get three new people in, I'll start up the Roleplay thread.
