Hi everyone, and welcome back to You Build the Character.
This year, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace was re-released into theatres in 3D. The first Star Wars film in 16 years, TPM had a lot to live up to, and unfortunately failed to meet the level of hype. But despite its flaws, the film is underrated, and opens up the Star Wars universe in a whole new way. New worlds, new species, new technology. And most importantly new characters.
This month's challenge is to build a character from The Phantom Menace. You can even enter multiple times, provided you follow the rules below.
You have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 2 August to post your RPG stats, and any notes you want to post explaining your decisions. Once submissions have closed, all forum members will have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 16 August to vote for their favourite. Whichever build receives the most votes will win.
The prize for winning is having your stats enshrined in the YBtC Hall of Fame, as well as the bragging rights.
The following rules apply to all submissions:
- All builds must be created according to RAW, with no house rules (no single Athletics skill, no bonus feats for bloodlines etc).
- You may use "unlimited" point buy for ability scores, provided each score is between 3 and 18 at first level (before racial and age adjustments).
- You are free to use material from all official Saga Edition books, up to and including The Unknown Regions.
- You may enter more than once. An entry can consist of up to three characters. Each individual forum post containing stat blocks counts as an entry unless otherwise specified.
- You may not enter more than one set of stats for the same character.
- You may not enter a character who has already been the subject of their own competition.
- When creating stat blocks, use the species traits from official WotC sources. If a species never received official stats, use the ones from Saga-Edition.com. If there are no stats on Saga-Edition.com, you may create your own, but make sure to include them with your stat block.
- You may change your stats at any point up until submissions close, at which point any edited stats will be disqualified.
Have fun everyone, and may the Force be with you.
