Some thoughts to help you if you wish: I would check the timeline situation but the orphanage could have been on a Republic planet that was taken over by the Empire (the Mirakula could have left juts before the invasion). The orphanage could have been a front for the Empire to recruit agents/force senstivies (which the Mirakula JK could have been rescued from).

In my personal opinion as long as the concept isnt too far fetched, it could be fun.
Oh I like that idea. Thanks for the help guys. And the interesting point about the stories being a little too constricting. I'll post my backgrounds on the forum when I get them all worked out.

One thing I was looking for was a timeline of the different stories. I can't really find summaries of course because people don't want to be spoiled (which I understand), but I was wondering do all the stories take place at roughly the same time?

Are you looking to see if the different stories happen concurrently and over the same time/duration? I would say overall yes (there does not seem to any hard set time progression and all seem to run concurrently), but timelines with a few specific planets are done at different times. All of the classes on each faction (Empire/Republic) go through the planets in the same order but the different factions do not. I believe most of the planets are in the same order between the factions except Balmoora/Taris. Empire characters visit Balmoora first, then Taris later and vice-versa for Republic.

Even in addition to the above there does seem to be an order in which the class quests happen on planets.

On Alderaan

I don't know exactly how the other classes fit into this, and how it holds for other planets. It is probably safe to assume that within a span of several months that at the time that you're visiting the planet, the other classes in your faction will visit it or have already visited within a few months/weeks.

The Act changes all happen around the same point in time for everyone with regards to the overarching conflict between the Empire and the Republic.

From what I've heard, there is balmorran orphans refugees. Considering the time period, it would be just after the GGW.
Ooh! In WildStar, I get double jumps, path choices, and massive PvP!That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

I will never take someone who says "EAware" seriously.

well there are orphins on ord mantell courcant and balmoria but no officioal orphanages that im aware.

but u can allways tweak it so that they were simply orphins that looked after each other on the mean streets of (what ever planet u wish) untill a jedi found one and took them for training, the empire would then stumble on the other take as a slave and maybe see their skills and take them for intellgance training.

Thanks the time line info is helpful I just didn't want my characters story lines to be years apart if I start to get really creative and write some fic.
