Survival of the Nerdiest

The premise is simply, how long can you survive in a hostile planet based in the Star Wars galaxy? Do you have what it takes to out live the others? What will survival push you to do? Who. Are. You?

The goal is to survive your situation while stranded on a hostile world and attempt to either be the last one alive among the participants, or to escape the planet. Every day at approximately 9:00 PM PST the Narrator will post the days scenario which the participants will then debate about what they will do in that time, as time goes on the scenarios will get increasingly harder to decide. If a decision you put forth is incorrect in that days scenario, then PM the Narrator and tell them so that they may amend it. Your knowledge of star wars will aid you in particular environments from the familiar Felucia, to the distant sands of Korriban. Supplies can be found in the wreckage of the vessel that the Participants arrived in, which is of the Correllian Corvette variety that had broken up in the atmosphere.

Rules
#1 - Stay within reason. Most things will be acceptable, but nothing outlandish such as suddenly gaining jedi powers and instant own rancor's.
#2 - You are an average Star Wars citizen, what ever race you choose, even a droid if you wish. Choose carefully, this could determine how well you could fare and what challenges you will face.
#3 - Declare force sensitivity at the beginning, or not at all. No compromise. One of the only ways to gain force powers when you had none before is obviously the Staff of Marko Ragnos, and I can ensure it will not be found...
#4 - If you have problems with the scenario of the day, simply ask the Narrator for a change or some such. If you are persuasive enough, it will be changed within reason.
#5 - If you come into conflict with another participant, it will be between you to debate the likely outcome which will then be displayed in the next days update.
#6 - No flame wars. Those who instigate flame wars will first receive an injure, if they do it again they will be put into a comatose state for that day. Third strike they are found by the Empire and executed on the spot by Darth Vader.
#7 - You get to select three items that you managed to grab before making it into the escape pod, again, has to be within reason. Has to be able to fit into an escape pod.
#8 - If you attempt to kill another participant you will be able to take what ever they had on them as well as knocking them out of the running. This would require much debate during that day however, and often will take up multiple days, aka one would escape and the other could pursue. Whoever the Narrator feels is the most compelling will be the victor and decide the fate of the other participant.
#9 - Weapons are allowed to be among your three items, but it can not be any rare or outlawed items unless it fits with the persona that you create when you first start. Aka a smuggler can't bring a light saber.
#10 - You can escape anyway that seems plausible as long as you make a good argument for it, however, it will almost always take multiple days for this to happen since the entire goal is to escape/survive. Who ever makes it off planet alive is among the victors.
#11 - If you choose to select a ranged weapon from the beginning then you will be granted 1 extra clip, but you can find more as the game goes. Use it carefully.
#12 - If you wish to make any actions that you wish to be kept secret from the other participants, PM the Narrator and he will work that into the daily update, allowing you to perform that action without others knowing until later. They can find out by other means however.
#13 - Obey the Narrator

Unless you attempt to kill another participant, it should be significantly easier for participants than other debating subjects. Just gotta be able to adapt to the environment/Narrators narration. *it is essential for driving the game*

I'll have to make sure I have time. Next College term starts tomorrow, and I'm going to have to report for Jury Duty on Tuesday (maybe).

Sucks.

Hmmm, not sure I quite understand. So you post a scenario and then we PM are thoughts to you?

Or post it in the thread for everyone to see?

Nonetheless sounds like a cool idea!

Post in the thread for all to see. The only PM's to the Narrator is if the scenario that is updated that day *summarizes everyone's decisions, and new challenges for the day* has the incorrect actions or some such for your particular character. Otherwise it is posted in the thread.

So if part of the daily update said that Beniboybling was able to evade the pack of wamp rats and hide out in an abandoned sand crawler, but you had ended up deciding on fighting the wamp rats instead *you would display what you would be doing to combat the days challenges in the thread so it could be discussed and possibly change your mind* you would then PM me and I would make the changes, editing it to fit.

But then surely we could copy what other people do?

Oh trust me, each of them will be varied. Some might meet up at times or choose to stick together, but there will always be new issues looming. No one size will fit all here. I will ensure it.

In other words, I will be custom crafting the problems and challenges to each participant for as long as they are in the game. They won't be sweeping generalizations such as, "You have run out of food" it could be though "Beniboybling has run dry his source of food and must seek another." "Selenial has settled in nicely into a cave she discovered the day before but during the night she heard claws on stone farther in its depths."

Also, feel free to make up your own politics if two participants happen to collide and or work together. I leave that type of stuff up to their own judgement to create that piece of drama.

Im just curious why anyone would not pick a force sensitive...
