NoLP: The Story Thus Far

Since Kabe just put up our character chronology, and I didn’t get this finished anywhere near in time for the original prompt. One would think doing a summary would be easy. I’ve included something on all my OCs, even ones that only make fairly brief appearances.

For the most part my characters follow the class stories. They don’t happen quite simultaneously as the game seems to assume that they do. I don’t have a master timeline with specific years. Assume spoilers for the class and companion stories concerned. I noted where overlap with other class stories and potential spoilers occur.

Like Hoyden’s, my characters share the same universe, though they don’t interact much. The sole major exception is an Alternate Universe with Rixik and Kirya, who live entirely in the AU version of this thread. And who still need their summary. Sigh.

I gave a physical description in the first paragraph for each character. In addition, here’s a Revised Portrait Gallery including all the recurring characters as well as a few others, not all of whom have stories here (yet). Hepoul as a smuggler, looking better for not being in the brig for a week (but still a bit too pale), Vashutarl as a Jedi Knight, and Jealousy’s sister, Jer’myn (who will probably get a name change) as a trooper. No Sal; I can’t get close with the character creator. Sorry they’re a little small.

(edit to include) Kughel is now in the portrait gallery link in the previous paragraph. His summary is in here as well.

Many, many, many apologies for length. I am good at details and absolutely terrible at summaries.

Eldest of the Group: Varrrel Umrahiel, Human Sith Marauder (Sith Warrior):
Spoiler



Jesp Rixik, Twi’lek Mercenary Bounty Hunter: (includes spoilers for Smuggler story)
Spoiler


Kirya Bilali, Twi’lek Gunslinger/Smuggler (some mention of Bounty Hunter story)
Spoiler


Sha’ra’zaede/Schehe’ra’zaede, Chiss Imperial Agent Operative
Spoiler


Jurial, Mirialan Jedi Sage
Spoiler


Incidental Characters that may or may not get more face time. Possible spoilers for listed classes:

Hepoul, Chiss *doesn’t really fit a class but currently rolled as smuggler, at least for pic purposes*
Spoiler

Jealousy, Pureblood Sith Assassin (in game level 13, so not much mapped out yet)
Spoiler


Jer’myn, Sith Pureblood Trooper (in game level 3 and destined for a rename anyway, small smuggler spoiler)
Spoiler


Vashutarl, Human Jedi Guardian (in game level 11. Again, not much experience with the story)
Spoiler


By popular demand: Ian Kughel, Trooper (a trooper not the trooper. No spoilers)

Spoiler


Honorable Mention:

These characters are not part of my legacy but show up occasionally. Sometimes more than occasionally. No spoilers unless listed.

Xathras (minor Inquisitor spoilers):
Spoiler


Andalar and Valden Greyson aka “the boys” (minor Bounty Hunter and Trooper spoilers):
Spoiler


Korjonos:
Spoiler


Sal and the Old Man (no relation to Agent story) The tone on this one is a bit different:
Spoiler

Your stuff is just beautiful, Striges. *is jealous for a moment* Such a mix of light and dark. I especially liked that last one, again a happy story in a lot of ways but bittersweet since we know how it ends.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I'm glad you liked Sal and The Old Man--I almost didn't include them, but they did have a background sketch and I thought it would be nice to share it, as opposed to having them just be more of RIxik's victims. I considered trying to roll one as a character but for heaven's sake neither one of them fit a class at all and I have more alts than I can play anyway. Step away from the character creator, everything will be fine...

I loved all of them, Striges, but that last line of the last story made me both happy and teary.

Striges, you and bright_ephemera have this amazing ability to build worlds that are so real and deep and engrossing, it's Tolkien-esque. You both create characters you care about, love to hate, and worry incessantly for and always bring us back eagerly for more. I'm beyond jealous, and I love your worlds beyond words.

Tatile, I can never get enough of Rochester and Broan's life. Even the outlying characters are fascinating.

Eversteam, I'm a Vector fangirl. I couldn't wait to take a blanket and some rations and go star gazing with him. So sad to watch your Agent battle with her feelings for him, because he would treat her so well, and give her the support she'd need in that rollercoaster story.


I'm absolutely in love with all the universes created in this thread. Honestly its more fun than actually playing the game.

So, I'm leaving this little offering in case anyone was wondering what was up with Ipha. Here is Night of the Living Prompt: Allies (yeah I know, I'm going way back.)

And, some of you were asking about my blog staring Kel'ani. It's called A Sun in the Heavens and I'm updating it every day or two on Tumblr. bright has found me already, (! was so excited to see that!) but I'll leave the link here too for anyone that wants to check it out. I keep the chapters short so there will be a lot of them.

Good to see Ipha's up and about again, even if it is the middle of the night. At least she has a cuddly kitty soldier with her.

Also, I shall now stalk you on tumblr

Aiee, Morgani. Poole looks after his own. <3 I...may possibly have a weakness for people who make a point of doing that.

@Morgani Poor Ipha! There was no way she was coming out of that unscathed though, and major love to Poole and Jorgan!
